Best pen pal app there is!

I just received my first letter from someone today. It took 2 hours to get here (the app let’s you know if someone sent you a letter and how long it will take to get you) and for those 2 hours I was genuinely excited. It’s like receiving a package in the mail! You have something to look forward to. I sent a letter back and they have to wait 2 hours to open it, and I’m sure they’re feeling the same way. The instant gratification of texts and other forms of instant messaging has really damaged connection and meaningfulness. I love this app. I think it’s amazing and I really hope more and more people join. It’s definitely an app worth supporting!


Just what I need 💛

I've always wanted to try old school way of communicating (which is writing letters). But there is no one for me to write. Luckily, this app offers me just what I need, lots and lots of people who are interested in letters just like me!

I have one suggestion though. Can you add more filters? For example: age filter. Sometimes, I want to talk to people my age and it took me such a long time to view everyone's profile, to figure out how old they are. It'll be much quicker if I had the age filter. I won't even need to tap in every profile I see. Okay, I get that some people don't like to show their age. The filter can just ignore those people then.


I absolutely love this app ❤️

I was looking around the App Store for a sort of "pen pal" experience and stumbled on this app around August. Downloaded it and decided to try it and it has been absolutely amazing. I've met so many great people on here and it's opened up a whole new door. Never ran into a issue, everything works perfect. Already wrote over a 100 letters! The custom avatars and preferences are really neat, and the time it takes for a letter makes it more authentic (not just another texting app) and keeps the conversations more joyful and meaningful. Great job to the people who made this app, and keep up the amazing work!
