There are many features designed to help you learn your target language and interact with native speakers. Yes, sometimes you'll encounter rude people but it's easy to block them. Two things I don't like: It doesn't have a "dark mode" option. There should be a trial to use the upgraded version before committing to paying the exorbitant cost to buy it.

Sorry that your last experience in HelloTalk was unsatisfactory. If you come across anyone who attempts to use the app for inappropriate purposes, please report the person. Please kindly understand that our app still needs more work for dark mode. If you have any further advice about our app, please kindly contact us from the Support Team.

I've enjoyed using this app every day for a long time. However, the latest update seemingly removed location/country/city information from the "Connect" tab, which is how I've found all language partners so far and the most important feature to me. Now, the location can't be viewed unless each individual profile is tapped on, which makes the Connect tab useless to me. This is essentially the only reason I used this app and not Tandem. I'm not sure how long I'll continue if this change remains

I personally really like this app, and have learned quite a bit just within a couple days of having it, especially through corrections of my "moments" posts. Speaking of moments, I wish there was an option in moments to be able to post videos, as there's some clips of my hobbies I would like to share. If there is a way to post video clips and I just missed it, then this critique can be disregarded :)
