Great, with One Exception

Jae Parker


I just downloaded this app and so far I love it! However, if I were to make one suggestion I would ask that you alter the initial letter formatting. I tend to type quite a bit, so I was rather disappointed to see that after a certain number of lines you couldn’t see what you were typing because the keyboard was in the way. Even scrolling down wouldn’t allow you to see the very bottom of the message. I ended up becoming frustrated because I dislike being unable to check my writing as I go and wrote it instead in my notes, copying and pasting it into the box when I had finished (and earning myself the “Parrot” achievement in the process, funnily enough). While I’ll continue to use the app, I would like to be able to do so without having to use my notes every time I want to send a message to new potential friends. Other than that, this app is awesome! Keep up the great work 😊

Hi Jae! Thanks so much for the nice review and the great feedback. We are actually working on optimizing the Write screen for exactly the reason you mentioned and hope to have it released in a new update very soon. Thanks again and welcome to Pen Pals - we're glad you're here!

If you want to meet new people...


I’ve only recently downloaded this app and I am beyond thrilled at what it has to offer. I can chat with people from all over the world in a wonderfully set up electronic way.

Not only do you get to “send mail” but you can later add the pen pals and friends and instant message.

You can earn stamps for various “achievements” and also unlocks different countries.

Already I’ve made some nice friends on this app that I can easily talk to. Even though the people may be from another country you still receive your messages in your native tongue.

You can also send photos and receive them. So far I’ve received a good about of beach, nature and dog photos, some of the best kind!

If you’re looking to meet new people or just have a nice chat with a stranger from all around the world, this is the perfect app for you!

Wow - thanks for the incredible review and welcome to Pen Pals! We're glad you're here :)

My New Favorite App! ❤️


Lately, I've just been growing tired of social media in general. It's starting to feel divisive or like a popularity contest. This app feels different though. I've only been on the app 3 days and have already met really cool and interesting Pen Pals in 8 different countries. Oh, and if you like surprises, use the app at night 🚀 Highly recommend this app if you're looking for something different and friendly! 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼
