making real friends in the modern generation

Whoever created this app thank you genuinely from the bottom of my heart, I’m emotional-I really mean it!! This app is the real
deal but that being said, it takes effort to get to know each other. Our culture today is so much about ghosting or flaking out! I
have downloaded countless friendship apps

Gotta Catch Up!

When I was a kid, the only pen pal I had was a kid from another school in the city next to me. It wasn’t super exciting,
honestly, because I didn’t get to really choose who my pen pal was. I was only able to ask basic questions and it was super
limited. Funny end to the story... when I met that pen

Surpassed my expectations

Even before covid, I had a hard time making friends because I’ve always been super introverted and have never been into the
social media craze. So I thought why not, this seemed like a cool app, I can just delete it if I don’t like it. Well, I have
been pleasantly surprised since the start. It is ge

Game changer

Imagine getting on SLOWLY every day to see you Pin-pal write you letters, parents don’t worry, the apps prevents minors from
talking with adults. Honestly 10/10 would recommend, for anyone who is interested in learning a new culture. Not to mention you
can collect, earn and buy stamps. Also I love m

Does what it’s supposed to

It’s an amazing app but if I may recommend something, please add search for keywords through all the messages with a contact. It
really helps remembering something that has been said a long time ago. Thank you for your amazing work.

It was hard to get into first, but I have one friend right now and we talk back and forth. I was bullied in school and people are
just mean, and people are easy to talk to.

Best Way to Connect with Others!—One Adjustment

This app has surely become one of my all time favorites and I’ve been using it for almost a year now. I’ve met so many
fantastic people and learned about different counties and cultures... the informational value of this app and connecting with

'Amazing app if you’re a self conscious person!!

'I read about this app on Reddit and it’s again my opinion. I’ve never written a review for an app until now, but that’s
because I genuinely enjoy it. The amazing this about the app is that it’s anonymous and you don’t have to put any pictures.

Fun, but way too many sketchy people

I have had fun writing to a few people but most communication has been shallow and dealing mostly with the mundane. And the number
of men asking me personal information in the first or second letters is just very off-putting. I will give it a bit longer to see
what happens.
