Grinder on your iPhone: modern technology brings cruising to a new stage

Not sure how many people in Shanghai use iPhone, but if you are gay, you might as well quickly go get one because you can install a gay cruising application on your phone! This might remind you of a scene from John Cameron Mitchell’s **Shortbus**: the young guy at the club looks at his Grinder as it beeps. It tells him that another gay man who meets his descriptions of Prince Charming is near. That is Grinder, an iPhone application that allows you to find another gay man based on location by using GPS feature. It’s like back in the old days, when the young guys all turn up at the Oscar Wilde plays; they all wear a white carnation on their suit jacket, to symbolize their secret identity. But nowadays, with a bit help of our beloved modern technology, cruising is much easier. The question is: will it not be blocked?

Trolling for booty is just one of the ways that your iPhone can make your stay in Shanghai more enjoyable. For instance, the Urbian Travel Guide for Shanghai is a full guide book and audio phrase book that you can download to your iPhone or Android. It will give you access to all the coolest spots in town and even speak the cab directions for you. Heck, it even has chinese pick-up lines in the phrase book in case you happen to find some willing new friends!
