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 😊

Developer Response

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!

Not into waiting


...I just downloaded the app yesterday and I wasn’t too happy. I got it because I’m moving overseas soon and I was looking to meet people in that country beforehand. When I got the app I thought it would’ve had at least a regular search and/or country search option to search out other pen pals, but instead it’s a waiting game. You send out a message that I guess goes out to random people over the world and then you sit and wait for someone to reply. That just seems like a waste of time. I was finally able to meet a few people, although not in my preferred country but okay people so far. I don’t think I’ll keep the app because it’s not what I was looking for in a pen pal app but this was my opinion. You really need to look into having a search option. No one likes waiting if they don’t have to.

Great Way to Meet New People!


When I was younger I used to write Pen Pal letters in my English class to a class in Sweden. I absolutely love this application because you can connect with people from all over the world! I love how you have to wait to get a message because it builds anticipation. I’ve even messaged a few people on chat after we’ve gotten to know each other better. I also think this is a cool concept because if you travel (like I do) it can also build connections to make or have friends when you visit other countries without actually having to write letters and wait for a response! Awesome job! 😁🤓
