Grindr crashes during Olympics

Grindr crashed within minutes of the first Olympic athletes arriving in London, due to the volume of demand, say experts. It took 24 hours for the app to get back up and running. London is the most popular city for the app, with 350K registered users.

Grindr, which first launched in 2009, has exploded into the largest and most popular all-male location-based social network out there. With more than 4 million guys in 192 countries around the world -- and approximately 10,000 more new users downloading the app every day -- you?ll always find a new date, buddy, or friend on Grindr.
