Always been a great app, but since update the only way to stop the app from running in the background is to go into setting and kill the app. Not good as app is a battery killer as is!
I love this app! It's so fun and it makes communicating with language partners so easy! I'm on it all the time practicing my Japanese. :D People are so helpful and fun to chat with! I love this app's features! The only thing, on the first day I had this app I got the free trial of premium and tried out speaking with Spanish speakers (free accounts can only exchange in one language at a time, premium a few). Almost all of them made me uncomfortable... I even had to block someone for the first and only time since I had this app. He kept asking personal questions and demanding pics... Since then, I decided to only use this app for Japanese. ^^; Well, I had one little awkward exchange with a Japanese guy who was getting a little flirty during our long conversation about games and amusement parks, but as soon as I mentioned I was taken he simply congratulated me and we kept talking for a while. So far I haven't had any other guy flirt with me since, but I know it happens because I see plenty of profiles (even some men's) requesting no romance. Besides that, keep in mind there's also people who don't use the app at all seriously. They always post how bored they, then they don't really help out others or even themselves. Just kinda mindless chatting in single sentences. So just a precaution before using this app, and any social app really. Don't get too personal about private information, and watch out for creeps, especially if you're female! With all that said, I still love this app and gave it 5 stars. :) I can't really fault the app itself for troublesome people. Even a week later the app notified everyone of someone who was banned, and it turned out to be that same guy I blocked! The staff even recently made an update to add direct replies to group chats. Seems to be a good staff. ^^
Really great tool to practice what you learned in "theory " for any language
It was a great app last year, but for some reason they decided to add a subscription to be able to learn and teach more than 1 language. Before you just had to buy the app once. Also, please stop with the HT community, or at least give me the means to block those posts out. I would ask for the ability to have more than only one native language. Now I have to say that I'm native in French and proficient in Dutch, but I would like to be able to be native in both, since being just "proficient" kind of downplays my abilities in Dutch... Thank you very much for making this application, though ! 助かりました！
Even with an unpaid account, it's such a valuable resource for language learning. I've only been using it for a week or so and have already made friends with a native Japanese speaker over our mutual love of Okuyasu from JoJo's Bizarre Adventure. You can passively observe foreign languages being spoken to try and pick up proper grammar or have a go at posting something and learning from the corrections. You can also assume the role of the teacher so the experience is mutually beneficial for everybody. It's a brilliant app. Can't recommend it enough.
Amazing app!!!!! Brilliant stuff, man! I mean I wish I had this thing before some years.... I can't express my gratitude in words for making this wonderful app! Whoever made this, man, you are great, amazing! I just love it! I could never have imagined in my life that I could get help from native French & English speakers! I was helpless, hopeless at a time. Finally I found this app, it's superb, man! I'm just a student now, when I'll get a job, I'll subscribe to get more cool options here... I'm thinking about like..telling u...that...IT'S THE BEST APP I EVER HAD EXPERIENCED in my life, man!... Brilliant brilliant job! Thank you is just a word, but I can't express my gratitude in words, I'm telling you. Whoever wants to learn any language, just go for it. Forget fb, WA and everything. Just go for it. It's the best one. THE BEST!
