It's good overall. One problem is you can't sort My Teachers by language (like on the website). The tutors are a mixed bag. Some really don't know what they're doing. I wish I could hide teachers I didn't like, don't work for me, or am not interested in from the search results. That would save me time looking for new teachers. Some don't use my preferred communication tool and it's a waste of time trying to find that out every time (you find out after attempting to book a lesson).

iTalki has gone from being from of the strongest language learning apps to the absolute worst. The app itself is bloated, slow, and not the least bit intuitive. on my newest version of Android there are bugs that dont even allow me use filters to find a language partner. If I select the language, it doesnt let me continue on to the next filters. As a teacher, it is impossible to change ANY TEACHER SETTINGS on the app, and the mobile site automatically directs you to the app. Impossible to use.

The customer service is really quite terrible. I used a referral link in order to get a $10 credit, and for some reason the credit didn't go through, even after purchasing $30 of additional credits and waiting the requisite 48 hours. When I contacted customer support, the Beijing-based representative was curt and simply kept repeating that they had no record of my link (even after they asked for the link and I provided it) and closed the ticket. I thought that was pretty rude and callus.
