The gay dating app Grindr crashed due to a massive increase in demand, which some believe has something to do with the first Olympic athletes arriving in London. Technical experts believe the arrival on Monday (16 July) crashed the service in East London, the place where many athletes and tourists are staying during the event. Grindr allows users to pinpoint potential partners using iPhones GPS system, as well as chatting to new people and friends. The Mirror reports a frustrated Londoner as saying: "It happened almost as soon as the teams go here. Either loads of athletes were logging on to meet fellow Olympians or were looking to bag a local. The Grindr system obviously couldn't cope." Full story here via Tres Fab Sweetie!
