Ratings and Reviews
I like what this app intended to do...expose people do various cultures, languages, and new friends globally. In reality, I just get spammed with dozens of inappropriately sexual messages or people getting mad because I won’t send pics, even though all I did was post a question asking a cultural or language related question. Yes, I know I can click on “ignore”, but it’s annoying when over 95% of the message you get are attempts to turn this into a dating/hookup app. HiNative is a similar app that manages to accomplish the intents of this app, minus the spam. Maybe if Hello Pal were to incorporate more language related question templates and learning materials, it would help attract a different community of users. In the meantime, it resembles Tinder more than anything else.

We're sorry to hear about your negative experience. Hello Pal is meant to be half social app, half language learning app, although there are many users who are more interested in socializing. We do have Community Guidelines in place, so if you met someone or saw a post that violated our rules, please report the person or post (how to report: http://goo.gl/M5KRm7).
If you prefer to see more language-learning content, we highly recommend our other app, Language Pal. Please check that out!
This app is a good idea for learning languages but take caution while using it. The majority of users on this app use it for inappropriate purposes. Most people who send me messages are only sending me inappropriate photos of their inappropriate places or trying to get me to send them photos of myself. Most people you will see on this app believe that this is a place to find a quick bang or a desperate relationship and have no actual interest in exchanging languages. There is very low security and there is no way to block anyone. So be very cautious and very careful of who you talk to and remember that, despite what you see, this app is not a dating app.

Thanks for your feedback! If you met anyone who violated our house rules (http://goo.gl/NDYBX0), please report them to us (http://goo.gl/M5KRm7) so we can take action immediately. You can "ignore" unwanted messages, and you can also edit your Chat Settings (in the "Me" screen) to help filter out unwanted messages (please make sure you update to the latest app version). We don't have a "block" function yet, but that's something that we are currently working on for a future update. For further assistance, please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This app in general is good for meeting people and finding language partners. However, recently I got logged out of my account for some strange reason and when I logged back in everything was gone. All my profile and account info, all of my messages and posts and followers, etc. Some of my info remained though like my profile picture and what languages I'm learning so clearly there's some kind of bug with the app. Very disappointed that I've now lost contact with all the friends I made on there.

Hello, we'd like to assure you that your profile and chat/contacts data was not deleted at all - the information just didn't appear where they were meant to show up in the app. Please try to uninstall and reinstall the app and check again. If you are still having problems, please write to us at email@example.com. If possible, please include screenshots that show the error message (if any) or the remaining issues.
