Grindr Plus - Extend the limits of Grindr!I am pleased to present Grindr Plus, a mod for Grindr that adds new features to the popular dating app!
PrecedentsA similar mod already exists (https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/mod-xposed-grindrmod-new.3807621/) although it hasn't been maintained for quite a long time.
Within the range of possibilities and options offered by the Xposed API, the main goal is to improve the experience in this dating app as much as possible.
I'm also implementing some features requested by users in official Grindr feedback (https://grindr.uservoice.com/forums/912631-grindr-feedback). Some requests are very simple to implement and today I do not understand why the official Grindr team has not been in charge of carrying them out, something that makes lots of people very angry. It is time for users to be heard once and for all.!
Little by little we will add more features. You can collaborate on the project and contribute your own ideas through my GitHub repository! https://github.com/ElJaviLuki/GrindrPlus
Mod Features(Depending on the version of the client and module you're using, some features may not be available or may work buggy.)
- Allow mocking locations (WARNING: Abusing this feature may result in a permanent ban)
- Advanced features:
- Unlimited cascade view.
- Unlocked 'Explore mode'.
- Advanced search filters.
- See 'Read' and 'Typing...' message states.
- Allow taking screenshots in any part of the app (including albums and expiring photos).
- Unlimited expiring photos.
- Remove expiration on incoming expiring photos, allowing to see them any number of times you want.
- Extra profile fields in the so-called CruiseViewHolder ('Profile ID', and exact time of 'Last seen')
- Make videocalls even if you didn't start a chat with the recipient.
- Access to some user-hidden features (developer features)
- More accurate online status from other users. (Now, the green dot from other profiles goes off after 3 minutes of inactivity.) Inspired in the feedback made at: https://grindr.uservoice.com/forums/912631-grindr-feedback/suggestions/34555780-more-accurate-online-status-go-offline-when-clos
- Allow unlimited taps (no 24h restriction)
- "N/A" when Last Seen profile field is not available (= 0)
- New profile field: Body Mass Index (BMI)
- Check client version before hooking (as a security measure for avoiding possible crashes and bans*)
*Read the Disclaimer!
- Incognito mode is kinda buggy (it turns off after a little while)
How to install
- Install the Xposed Framework and its app (Xposed, EDXposed, etc.)
- Download the Grindr Plus module.
- Activate the module in the Xposed Installer.
- Reboot your device.
My Grindr app suddenly stops when the module is installed.Check if the module supports the app version. Grindr has lots of obfuscated symbols that change in each app update and the module couldn't work (or couldn't work properly)
