Really cool concept!
I really love the idea and genius behind this app!
Took me a while to figure it out, but the farther away the person is, the longer the mail is going to be sent/received. The closer
it is, the faster you get your letter. I like it’s not instant because it gives you something to look forward to what the other
person is going to say. Especially during this difficult time, it’s hard to try and connect with someone and make friends. So
far I’m getting the experience and getting letters from differen
Such a great app! You can build some great friendship and meet a lot of people. You can really understand others peoples culture!
I really like it and anybody should have it!!
Really love this app. It allows me to connect with others worldwide without any pressure.
'Slowly est une application géniale pour les amoureux de littérature et de langue. \n Cette application permet de
s’exprimer sous forme de lettres et ce, à tous les recoins de la Terre. Si vous le désirez, vous pouvez échanger avec des
personnes qui s’expriment dans une langue différente de la vôtre. Elle permet donc de travailler ses méninges et
d’apprendre une nouvelle langue. Personnellement, je préfère écrire dans ma langue natale, ce qui me permet de pratiquer mon
'Great app! Really worth trying! I just hope that they won’t turn out into those where you can’t do anything unless you pay in
'a really cute way to make new friends and communicate with old friends. i tend to have a lot more thoughtful conversations here
than i would texting someone'
'I’ve been on this app for three years and I love how it’s developed over time but still stays true to the idea of letters and
deeper relationships than most social media'
'I love it so much'
'I’ve met wonderful people on here. Such a great system of having an avatar, selected interests, a displayed profile and
everything so that you can find the perfect people to connect with. The stamp system and the waiting is all part of the fun! Love
it so so much.'
'Such a Great App'
'I am in awe about this app, I have always wanted to have pen pals but was weary of most sites. What I love about this app is just
how seamless it is and the great functionality. It’s certainly something to do in quarantine!'
'Something to improve the app'
'It’s a really great app, get to meet new people all over the world with similar interests. My only problem is when replying to
a letter you can’t see what the person wrote above the text box. It would be easier to reply back if you could see what they
said. On the website you can see their letter but not in the app.'
'The best, please give it a try'
'I\'ll get an occasional glitch but for the most part this app is exceptional. I\'m completely in love and so happy in my
experiences with other users and the app as a whole. I\'ve recommended it so so many people I\'m afraid they\'ll think I\'ve been
hacked or something, honestly this is unpaid advertising. You\'re welcome. This is the best thing that has happened this year,
'i adore it!'
'this app is so great! i’ve always wanted penpals and this makes it so easy to find and talk to some super nice people.'
'Coolest idea ever!!'
'I downloaded this almost a week ago and immediately I started talking to a bunch of people from around the world! I love having
penpals without the hassle of mailing stuff in the mail and having it take longer than usual. I’ve met so many fun people
already and I can’t wait to meet more!!'
'A few bugs but still a great app'
'So when I was first creating my account I had to do it three times because the app kept crashing and then when I would go to use
that same username and it would tell me that the username was already taken so I had the create a new one. There are a few other
bugs in the app that I notice but overall this app is really amazing and has given me the change to meet some pretty cool people
around the world! Love it!'
'Saw this app from a tweet on twitter and i love it because so far i’ve made a few friends. Waiting for the other person’s
letter is probably the best part for me. I met so many people so far and I love it!!'
'I’m really enjoying it'
'I just wish there was an easier experience replying. Like, while writing a reply, you can see the message that you’re replying
too. Otherwise allow me to copy all, rather than tidbits, so I can paste onto a notepad and reply while seeing the message I am
'Thanks for creating this app! Brings me lots of pleasure'
'write me!! :)'
'u guys should send me a letter! my id is 5EB3Q2 it can be abt anything!'
'Users sometimes block you for whatever reasons, this is understandable. But I wish the system notifies you the specifics instead
of saying “the other account has been deactivated”, which leaves you wondering what actually happened'
'Great app but has issues'
'For one they need to bring back the block button. I’ve had minor issues where people think it’s cool to ghost you. These are
situations where just being in the Deleted Users folder would not make sense. Granted I do check that folder and I have been able
to salvage a friendship and keep going but I had one instance where asking an innocent question got my head ripped off and it was
not even offensive in the least. \n\nPhoto Sharing needs better controls especially when you send a photo of y
'Honestly my favourite ‘social’ media app! \n\nI have some suggestions though. I hope we can organize all the letters we
received. We can favourite, maybe have our own customization of folders too- where we put certain letters we treasured dearly. I
hope we can have more editing opinions when doing our letters and bot just stamp. I was thinking if you guys could add italic,
bold, or a fonts too. Great app, I’m glad this existed and I found it.'
'Hands down my favourite social media app! The concept is brilliant and the interface and new avatar options are adorable'
'Great concept and idea. \nPersonally prefer an option to send and receive mails I\'m a even longer time.'
'Great app, I have met lots of interesting people through here. My only issue is the language limit as I’ve studied more than
'L’application est en anglais et je trouve ça vraiment dommage car le but est de parler avec du monde de d’autre pays donc on
devrait avoir l’application en plusieurs langues. Aussi il pourrais avoir une façon de pouvoir écrire à quelqu’un dans
notre langue et que l’autre la reçoit dans sa langue à lui comme ça on pourrait vraiment parler avec n’importe qui dans le
monde et il n’y a aucune appli qui a ça. L’idée d’attendre le temps d’une vrai lettre en papier est g
'Great app. Loved the idea that you have to wait to receive a letter.\nMakes you back to the days where it was the only way to
'great app, not very diverse avatar system'
'hey slowly.\n\ni love this app.\ni don’t love the lack of unique customization for avatars.'
'Toutes les informations sur la description de l’application est totalement vrai!'
'old to new'
'Brings the essence of writing a letter and the pure excitement of waiting for its reply. My friend recommended this “hipster
app” and boy, I would I recommend it to anyone who wants something to look forward to. Patience is key though.'
'You can make friends around the world or just have a nice talk.\nSo into this! ❤️'
'Enjoying it, but one problem really needs fixing'
'I enjoy this app, it’s an interesting and different way to communicate with people from around the world, however, I do not
know if this is a common problem, but my account randomly expired without warning, and I had to create a new one.'
'I haven’t encountered any of the problems people complain about! The anticipation.. It’s like receiving actual letters. The
stamp idea is really creative. Would love to have something similar added to the app~ Like maybe small drawings to choose from, or
the format of the letter like a postcard or a letter? Love the app🌼'
'Pros: Talking w someone from NC about philosophy, had someone hit me up cause my description was cool, met a Brazilian
engineer\nCons: Someone CLEARLY from my hometown messaged me a poem abt being ‘numb to the hands creeping up their shirt’ and
I do NOT know what to do with that'
'I love the concept of this app! The anticipation of receiving a letter is just so thrilling since it is not instant. One
suggestion would be making this platform available on a desktop version :)'
'Absolutely Love It'
'I’ve always wanted to be able to communicate with people from other cultures and different parts of the world and this is a
perfect way to do it. I can already tell I’m going to make a lot of friends this way. The app works great and is very user
friendly. Would definitely recommend!'
Good app, but has issues
I had this app for around a month before I stopped receiving letters. I opened the app and it said "my session timed out" and that
I had to login again. I tried, using my facebook, and when Slowly opened again, it said there was "no account found". I liked it
while I could use it. But now that I can't, it's quite disappointing that my account suddenly no longer exists. I deleted and
uninstalled, turned my phone off and on, looked for an update, but there was nothing.
Okay I guess
REALLY wish there was more privacy!!
Email verification doesn’t work.
Unable to create an account through any form. Email wise the verification email doesn’t come and hence no passcode.
Also there’s a red bar that pops up at the bottom of the screen - JSON something. Pretty sure it’s not suppose to show up!
Very cool idea tho!!
No support for Sign In with Apple
I was at the end of all the process to create an account when I noticed the only options where Google, Facebook or email. Why
isn’t there support for Sign In With Apple? It’s so much easier and privacy wise. I’m not creating an account if those are
the only options. Will erase the app, hopefully that changes eventually
I had high hope for this app. I use to have many old school pen pals. So far all I have on this app are guys nagging me to join
WhatsApp. Or gushing affections for me in their fist letter. My hopes have been dashed.
