'I really love this app, I get to meet people from not only all around the world but near me also, like 15 mins from me to be
exact. 😂\n\nWithout this app I wouldn’t have met my best friend so I’m really grateful for the app and the people I’ve

'Screen rotation issues.'

'Look, I love this app and use it very frequently however, my only complaint is that I downloaded it to my iPad in hopes that I
could write my letters using my apple keyboard, however the app does not support screen rotation and only allows for portrait
mode.\n\nThis is extremely frustrating as it should be a fairly simple thing to add to an app and with the amount of time I spend
typing my letters, doing it on my small phone screen has become tiresome.\n\nI hope this can be fixed soon as this i

'Great app'

'Notifications can be a little buggy but when you find the right person to talk to it’s so perfect. This app is an amazing
concept and I’m grateful my friend recommended it to me.'

'great app! would recommend.'

'the layout was a little confusing at first but it’s definitely just a small issue and doesn’t ruin the app, at least for me.
i’ve met a lot of friends on here and haven’t had any bad interactions yet. love the stamp feature and i think the app in
general is a really great idea :) no other complaints from me!'

'Nice concept'

'I am genuinely enjoying the app and the unique experience it offers, except it doesn’t support rotation on the iPad, so I have
to crank my neck when I’m composing a letter. Or I have to pre-type it on another app like notes, then copy paste the text, but
it’s a pain to do it that way if I want to reference part of a previous letter, I have to keep switching between apps.\n\nI
might also suggest to turn off when a letter is arriving at all. Real mail doesn’t tell you that it’s arriving

'Needed Horizontal View'

'I really love the app overall, I made some pen pals which already lasted for months. The only thing I find it sad is that
there’s no horizontal view for this app :( I use an IPad Pro 11 inch but typing on this on a vertical view is just a no no for
me :/ Hope Horizontal view would be available soon!'

'Amazing! But one bug perhaps?'

'This app is amazing, you can meet so many different types of people from all over the world and form lasting bonds! One thing I
noticed though is that my profile shows the incorrect sent:received ratio. It’s stuck on 1:1 whereas it should be 5:4. I don’t
know why this is.. still, amazing app!'

is good \nand my mum is cool with it too lol'

'Great app that allows creative freedom'

'An app that allows you to send letters to new pen pals? I’m down for that. Intuitive and responsive UI and features that make
it enjoyable to use. Keep the app updated devs because y’all doing a good job.'

'Overall good app'

'I think this app is wonderful. I love making friends online and SLOWLY makes it so easy. However, it does take a long time to
send and receive letters. I can’t complain, though, as it would take much longer to send physical letters.'

'Hands down 🙌'

'This is such an amazing concept, it’s a cool way of meeting new people in a platonic way specially people who you have common
interests with.\nYou have to wait before you can read a message which some people might hate but I do like it, it makes it more
realistic plus it helps you slowdown since nowadays we all want things to be instant and fast; to a certain extent it teaches the
users to wait, to be expectant, and to be patience. PLUS, there’s no ads 👍👍👍'

'Definetly recommend'

'SLOWLY is an amazing app that I really love the idea of. Would 100% recommend getting if you would like to talk to people from
different countries or your own. The app is well organised and error complaints posted in August have been fixed now in September
so is a constantly improving app. \n\nJump on the app as soon as it downloads, make a few friends, send letters, and wait for a
reply. Snail mail in technology is a great idea. Can’t thank the producers enough for making this brilliant app!

'So amazing!'

'This is such an incredible idea, and it’s super fun too!\n\nI set myself up as a turtle who got too cold in Antarctica, and
then got a super detailed reply about how I can travel around Australia and what things to look out for XD\n\nI’m really
surprised how much effort this person put into writing the letter for me, because I didn’t think anyone would take me seriously

'Birthday Bug'

'Love the app, but there is a minor bug. So i said my birthday is Oct 5th, but when I select this in the wheel, it displays
October 4th. It’s a bit strange. Other than that and a few system error, the app is amazing.'

'Overall it’s a good app'

'Everything is good. Auto-match a pal, write letters to different penfriend. However, the system and server seems to have a bit of
issues very often. It sometimes says ‘login expired’ and just keep loading. Sometimes it keeps loading when you are ready to
send and then keeps loading for ages. Just remember to copy your letter every time before sending!!!!!!!!!!!!!'

'Love the app!'

'Edit: Thank you for working on the app, much fewer instances of errors now! The app still has some issues with real-time updates,
but again, much better than before! I was also wondering if it might be possible to develop a Mac computer version of the app? I
think it may allow for even more people to use the app, and I would be excited to see the beautiful interface adapted for
Mac!!\n\nFirst review:\nI love this Slowly and its concept. I’ve been using it since February 2018, before the recen

'Cool apps'

'I have been dreaming for an apps like this. Although it doesn’t beats the OG (sending physical letters + gifts), it is an
alternative for busy people like us. There are plenty of errors like auto-match not refreshing or ghosting incoming letters. I
don’t mind because similar and better apps may pop up if they don’t fix it. Otherwise, it’s an excellent app'

'Snail Mail for a new Generation'

'I’m excited by this app because everything is so fast and instant these days. So much so that we are spoiling ourselves and
missing the beauty in the process of waiting and anticipating, the excitement and happiness of the moment is so much richer when
given! I think the very idea of “Slowly” is so poignant and actually has the potential of being very striking/awakening to
society\n\nThe only thing I STRONGLY dislike is the precision of the location services, I had a scary situation with

'System Error'

'When I was in search of a platform to find penpals, I searched all across the internet for a legitimate website / app; and then I
came across SLOWLY. I have to say that I love the fact that you have an avatar instead of a photo of yourself, you can also
collect stamps, as well as wait in real time for letters to arrive. This app is genius! Nonetheless, recently I’ve been having
this problem, whenever I go back into the app, I get presented with ‘system error’; hence, I can’t check any o

'Slowly slowly....'

'The concept of this app is brilliant. The fact you have to wait for the letter for between 1 hour to a few days makes this app
distinct and means every letter you open is worth while. I wish I could add a profile photo or customise the \"paper\" or my
profile page. It\'s (visually) all a bit too bland right now but I recommend it for the concept. You WILL meet amazing people and
enjoy waiting for bits of virtual mail!'

System error

I was signing up but when I reached the language choice, it said ‘system error’ and moved me back to the first page. However,
the username I chose when signed up cannot be taken when I tried to sign up again. I tried to sign up for 3 times but always ended
up at the language choice and ‘system error’. Hope you guys fix this soon :(

Please fix notifications!

Love the app but after I read a letter sometimes it still gives me the notification that I haven’t read it and it’s a new
letter, it would be lovely if you could fix this and if you also add a “mark as unread button” as the reminder to reply
sometimes does not work as well!

Nickname taken doesn't fly for me with an app like

It might seem silly, but I was really looking forward to the premise of this app. But the entire thing was ruined by my name being
already taken. That's fine for something like Twitter, but for a more authentic communication I want to be me. Uninstalled without
ever getting further than the signup screen.

I really like this app but it's too many errors.
Always system error and when I press send. It's loading so long long time like infinity. I have to close the app and open it
again. The letter still not send good luck they saved it to draft letter.
