Hope the app is good, but the registration does not work. I tried to make an account through my Google account, but got an error that something went wrong during the photo uploading procedure.
It's not that effective if you're serious about learning a language but it's great to learn a few fun phrases, practice your knowledge, and making friends from all different cultures. Overall it's a fun and interesting app. The worst part of it is that if you text someone from the far east like China or Japan (or the far west), they are either sleeping or in school and when they text you, you are either sleeping or in school because of time zones. So really you can only talk on weekends; but still a great application and this is unavoidable so 5/5 EDIT: After using it for a while it's very hard to catch people when they're free and replies come hours later from both sides especially due to different time zones. A sort of lobby matchmaking system which pairs you with matches at any given time would really enhance the experience and give you confidence.
It works, you can actually meet native speakers and get really good tips from them . But it's also used as a dating app, even if is not meant to be for those purposes, so, sometimes annoying 'cause girls think you're trying to hit on them, when you actually want just to improve your language skills. Also, chat sends messages in random order sometimes.
I remember when this app had a little yellow bike symbol and it had NOONE using it... wonder what it's like now... oh now I'm on a waiting list... From no users to being on a wait list... cute
The idea of this app is great! However, when you try to break the ice with people they don't respond, I tried several times to typing people interested in learn my mother tongue instead the language they speak and I didnt receive any answer.
Great app! But a has a few bugs.. like there sometime are duplication of the text messages.
