I love this app more than anything. It’s one of the best Penpal apps I’ve ever found and used. I’m so happy I came across
it. The only thing I wish to add (which still stores it 5🌟) Can you not delete the letters you’ve replied to so it’s easier
to work out which I’ve replied to and which I haven’t? With working 13hr shifts at times, I read them and then forget to
reply. I get you can set the reminders but trying to find the exact letter in a mixture of 15-20+ letters is proving difficult? On

Amazing but I have a suggestion

Ok this app is absolutely amazing! I have made some really great friends on this app that I can discuss anything with !! However,
what would make this app better would be the ability to share videos in a letter. Yes it’s supposed to give you a virtual
experience of the old days but being able to send videos would be awesome!

'Really Good!'

'So I’ve just started using slowly and and I have became friends with two people already. It is a really great platform if you
want to meet a new friend and I am really pleased with it. But if I were to say something about it (and it is not really a bad
thing) is that the Stamos I have got so far for the UK are all landmarks based from England. As a Scottish person myself I was
quite upset that I couldn’t use a stamp from Scotland (The Edinburgh Castle for example). Perhaps this is something

'Bringing back old school in style!'

'I love how refreshing it is to write to people across the globe or even nationally. The process of waiting and communicating with
like minded people of similar interests is always fun.'

'Really good'

'I wanted to practice my french conversation for school and help others learn English and also just chat to people from different
countries to learn about other places and this is great. No ads which is awesome and the privacy that you get is amazing you
don’t have a profile picture and you can allow people to send photos instead of them just sending them.'

'Love it'

'I’ve had this all for 3 days ish now and have about 10 penpals, all of which are from around the world.\n\nSome have slight
language barriers but we can still communicate (you can set your language level etc.) it’s really nice.\n\nEveryone is so pure
and unlike modern social apps, no one is there just for dating or looking for a round. It’s so pure and it’s so
amazing.\n\nHonestly can’t recommend enough if you sincerely just want to make friends.\n\nPS- you can collect stamps!!!'

'Amazing App'

'I’ve had this app for the last 3 months and I’ve met so many friends. It’s an amazing app and I completely recommend it to
anyone looking for international friends. I now have friends in America, Colombia, New Zealand, Australia, Germany and France!
\n\nOne slight thing, today whilst trying to open the app it keeps crashing and shutting off straight away. Can you fix this bug
please? :))'

'Such a good app, I’ve made quite a few friends already which I didn’t expect because I didn’t think people would actually
respond. I love the idea that the letters don’t come immediately and you have to wait which is pretty smart. I recommend it!!

'Out with the old, in with the new.'

'I love the idea of this app and writing letters to people as no one writes to each other nowadays. \nAt first I wasn’t so sure
on the app and didn’t know if it’d be the kind of app I download open once and never open again. \nHowever, I’ve been using
it for nearly a week now and have written to several people around the world. I like how letters aren’t sent instantly and you
have to wait several hours or even days to send and receive letters, so it is a bit like an actual posted messa

'Great but have to use Mobile Data'

'I love the shown concept around this app and waiting for a letter to arrive is actually so exciting I find. Great way to find
people with similar interests as well. \nOne downside is that I can only use the app while on mobile data, I’ve seen others have
this same problem so please look into fixing that as it may limit the amount people use the app.'

'Great app!'

'The whole concept of this app is creative and fun! I sent out several letters and have been hearing back from quite a lot. It may
be annoying the time wait when you’re first starting out but honestly i like it because it feels more real that you’re
actually sending out a card to someone. it’s a great way to communicate safely across the world. i’ve already met some
interesting people that have similar interest to me!'

'If there were different options for stationary as well as stamps that would definitely be a lot more fun. And perhaps even
different handwriting fonts, but who knows.\n It is still a great app and so much fun to meet people from around the world to
write to, without having to give out your home address to strangers!'

'needs more specific topics of interest'

'I love the concept of the app and i think it’s great however i think it would be better if the topics of interest were less
broad as putting ‘movies’ as your interest could be anything therefore it should allow us to pick some more specific topics of
interest like ‘marvel movies’ or ‘ rom- coms’'

replied minutes later. The design and layout is easy to follow and an easy way to connect to people all around the world. I’ve
had it for a mere two days and have already contacted and got responses from 10 people. This app is unique and a one of a kind
it’s a must add to your phone/ laptop and is especially fun over this strange time in quarantine. \nThank you so muc

\nit’s really good if you would like to start sending letters to people but don’t want to give ur address out or maybe don’t
have time to write one every week! like me \n\nthe only downside is the lowest is ranges to is 20, i would like to filter it to
about 17/18, but i don’t accept adds from people older haha. \n\nreally good app, recommend a lot !!'

'hi I have a suggestion that would make it easier for younger users...\nWhen exploring for a pen pal manually you can filter the
age range you want in the people that come up in your search but the only issue is that the lowest you can set it to is 0-20.
I’m 15 and would love to be able to filter lower so I can find people to contact that are my age as when the 0-20 boundary is
used most of the suggested ppl are 19 or 20 and it’s difficult keeping contact with people who are at such a differ

Needs improving

Needs way more options when it comes to ‘interests’. Or better still, you should be able to write your own. The whole point is
connecting with people who share your unique interests.

Also, people should not be able to choose so many interests as it makes it too generalised and impossible to find someone who
genuinely shares same interests. I swear some people just choose every single interest just to show up more in searches.

problems matching users

I used to be able to manually match users but whenever I try to find users who have similar interests to me I keep getting a
message that says no users found and i’ve tried restarting my phone but that doesn’t seem to help and it’s probably because
I’ve used to manually match users too much
please fix this problem because I can’t connect with any users

Issues with app opening

I only got the app a couple of days and I thought it was a really good idea! Today however I tried to open the app to answer a
postcard I had received and I couldn’t open it! It kept crashing so I reinstalled it hoping that would fix it and it didn’t!
Please could someone help me so I can open the app again!

Thank you,

Beware of the pervs who don’t know that this isn’t

The app is great and all but I think the purpose of it is unclear to some. I was on here just to meat friends and then this 58
year old man (I am a 12 year old girl) messages me. I think it’s a bit weird, but I decided not to judge him. The were a tone of
typos in his message so I assumed that he didn’t really know how to use the app and so, he hadn’t seen my profile and
wouldn’t know my age. I purpose said that I was in school in my first message, so he would get an idea of how old I am.He eith
