Review from yousef Dhimesh
Unable to choose our native language that we are comfortable with. Since i am Malaysian, HelloTalk automatically changed my native language to Malay. My native language may be Malay, but i still prefer and comfortable using English than Malay. Since i am learning Japanese, there is not much of Japanese people that wanted to learn Malay, so there will only be a few posts on the moment section, which is less than 5 posts. And since i can't change it back to English, these will only make this app useless for me.
Slow heavy. Menu is easy to use. The older one average. Sometimes fun/boring light better. The update slows the app. Many books/language app /google is better than this. This app only better at 1 thing. Communicate with limited number of humans. And not a good app for learning language. Use google or youtube/something else/dictionary, buy books to learn languages. Don't use this app for learning languages. Waste of time. Internet radio or private teacher can teach & help you better than this app
NOT COOL with this app sharing my birthday information despite that I've enabled the setting for my age to not be visible - NOT OKAY! Shame that you're insensitive to the disclosure of very personal information since I actually really do like this app. Between that and message notifications not working at all though, this rating is rightly deserved right now. Reply: I'm glad it's only shared under those conditions and I appreciate your informing me, but it's still private information to me - the sharing/disclosure of which I firmly believe should be entirely under my control, as it is pretty much everywhere else.
The app is great for learning. Best I have found, but it is buggy and closes randomly sometimes. It has not caused enough problems to move me away from the app though.
The application is so heavy to use and slow. People uses the MOMENTS like a social network posting selfie, foods kinda stuff. It's a language exchange platform, Hellotalk should filter those post. Search Engine is good option and friendly. I like the UX Design. I'll suggest HELLOTALK should be private community like TANDEM. People just can't use it and most of people using as a dating site, SHAME! They automatically change your language without notifying/permission from you. I am so ANGRY! I don't like HELLOTALK.
It's amazing! There's a 15 translation limit if you're not a VIP member. Not a big deal, still a great app. People aren't hesitant to correct your mistakes and encourage you to do the same! I have had it less than a day and already love it.
