I miss the old app. I have Android. And, I can't even download to upgrade to the newer version of app. I emailed Kakao Corp. No feedback from them. There is jo support. I have no access to my stories that have been recording over 10 years. I'm very frustrated.

Best app for those who want some sort of privacy. And also to meet other people with different languages. This application helps us communicate with abroad even though they are strangers. For me, it helps a lot and gave me satisfaction. Improve more the features so that it will become more and more usable and interesting.

I am a user of this app but since last year i notice that everytime i open this app it's not opening anymore, it just stays with the opening logo and then nothing happens. I think i will just uninstall this app, can't use anymore.
