Customer Reviews

'twas great long long ago

I had this app when it first came out on my ipt2 now I have it on my ip4 on 4.2.8 now it takes forever to send (btw all the ppl complanin about tht just close the app and it'll still send) and now on 4.2.8 the notifications don't work either PLEASE UPDATE and now bcos of these problems no one uses this app anymore so its impossible to find any1 to talk to and you barely get any messages if you don't make an update and fix these problems I will completely switch to ipenpal (although that is even slower) at least more ppl use it

So very disappointing

At one time this app used to be really awesome. I met a lot of cool people. Though now due to no updates this app is completely worthless. very few people use this app anymore, so it's hard to find anyone to chat with. The push notifications no longer work and you can't delete messages. And don't bother trying to get support, because they could care less. And they raised the price from $.99 to a dollar 99. And I was tricked into buying this app because they changed their name , so I didn't know it was the same app I had before. I deserve a refund.

Good app, Server back up

One of my favourite apps, the people you meet are surprisingly interesting and non-disgusting for a random conversation app. i guess having an "i am willing to buy the app" filter tends to filter out those types.

server seems pretty flaky, with service cutting out for a week recently. kinda terrible but otherwise the app is rather good with lots of polish.
