Flokkr has launched its own Greeting Cards brand and online shop for LGBTQ+ people: Cards.LGBT 💌

For now it is only available in the UK. 🇬🇧

This is probably not an announcement you would have expected. 😅 The development of this platform consumes a lot of time and money, but I also don’t want you to charge you for basic services of this platform. So the idea is to sell some merchandise on the side to help support Flokkr plus LGBTQ+ causes.

So if you’re in the UK and need some greeting cards for the birthday of your LGBTQ friend, a gay wedding or engagement or other occasions, please have a look and consider supporting Flokkr! Thanks! 🥰

Happy weekend, everybody!

Here’s just a quick update to let you know what we’re working on. This morning we already fixed a bug that prevented you from seeing the photos in user photo albums.

Apart from that, the main task at the moment is to improve discoverability of other user profiles and dating. In other words, we want to make it easier and more fun to find who’s on Flokkr and also enable users to better present themselves on their user profiles by making profile editing and picture uploads easier and more fun, too.

Here’s the more technical bit: In order for us to innovate faster, we need to make some changes to the web app. Over the next days, weeks and months we will transition parts of the actual web app to the main Flokkr web portal. You may have noticed that we already have two different kinds of pages, easiest to identify by their colour schemes: There are pages with a dark grey background (e.g. flokkr.com, flokkr.com/places, flokkr.com/settings) and those with a light grey background – that’s were you land when you log in with your Flokkr account, including Flokks, Radar, Chat and profiles. It turned out that we are more flexible in terms of new features, updates and innovation using the “dark grey” part of flokkr.com.

That means for you, during the transition period you may find yourself sometimes on the current ”light” part of the website and more and more often on the ”dark” part. We will try our best to make the transition as smooth as possible. The goal is to have only one unified website at the that does everything.

I hope you’re all looking forward to more features and improved usability! Thanks for being with us!

As previously announced, our new gay city guide app has now also been approved for Android and can be downloaded for free on Google Play.

This is our first Android app, so please check it out and let us know if you’re having any trouble with it. It would also be a massive help if you could give us a 5-star rating on Google Play. 🙏☺️

Android 9 (“Pie”) or later is currently the minimum requirement for installing the app. If there is enough demand for compatibility with an older version, we could give it a try, but in the latest test, there were some issues on older phones, so we dropped support, at least for our first version.

As a reminder, iPhone users can get Flokkr Places on the App Store.

Please also share this app with your friends. We hope more people will find our platform useful and join our community. You can copy this link to share with your friends: https://flokkr.com/places/app – it contains a link for both iPhone and Android users. Thank you!

Our first app has landed on the App Store! 🎉

Flokkr Places is your “Gay City Guide” to discover the best gay bars, nightclubs, restaurants, shops, hotels, charities and landmarks in your local area or for planning your next holiday.

Once the LGBT venues start to reopen later this year, this must-have app should be on every gay man’s smartphone.

Free download: App Store

The Android version is currently in review and should become available soon, too.

This is an important milestone for Flokkr and a lot more will follow.

As always, please let us know if you’re experiencing any issues. Otherwise, a little 5-star review on the App Store would help us immensely! 😜😘

Hello everybody,

some of you may have received a message by a fake user called "torped…" (abbreviated), with a spam link in the message. This was our first known bad user on Flokkr and they have been kicked out swiftly.

Thanks to those who notified us – keep safe!
