  • Amazing & Therapeutic! Oct 12, 2019

    By JSNRXBRTS
    SLOWLY is hands down one of my all time favorite services. I’ve always loved the idea of having a pen pal as a kid, never had one, but now I can as an adult. I can connect with people all over the world who ultimately and genuinely want to do the same thing, find new friends and people to connect with in a non threatening, safe, friendly and pleasant environment. I’ve never had a bad experience since using this app. I’ve had someone explain to me what helium is in detail out of the blue but that has been the strangest experience. As far as I know there aren’t any creeps lurking and the people on here really are looking to learn about you as an individual and share experiences and stories. It’s also a great therapeutic outlet to be able to open up to someone who could have completely different life experiences and yet still find common ground in those differences and provide support. The ability to choose topics of interest and match with people solely on that, and not on looks or other “vain” parameters is amazing. I especially enjoy the fact that it operates like actual letter writing, simulating letter delivery times. It really helps curb the instant gratification feeling. And the stamp feature is pretty neat as well. I’d recommend this app to anyone truly looking to find me friends from all over the world. SLOWLY is really helping me build a global network of friends.

  • making real friends in the modern generation Jan 11, 2021

    Whoever created this app thank you genuinely from the bottom of my heart, I’m emotional-I really mean it!! This app is the real deal but that being said, it takes effort to get to know each other. Our culture today is so much about ghosting or flaking out! I have downloaded countless friendship apps and it’s a week of instant chatting never to hear back again or many apps is anxiety inducing because of picture and people wanting to talk to you just because of how you look! Sometimes I get reached out just because of how I look, and nothing else, it’s frustrating :( I have always craved wholesome, deep and genuine friendships and this is the first app where I feel like I’m connecting with real people. The avatars are so cute and people are on this platform because they too crave real friendship which is a win win! I’m really grateful to the creator of this app, it’s so innovative to bring pen pal into a modern app! I have been feeling lonely and depressed during quarantine but tbh my whole life and this app actually gives me hope!! I hope the app continues to stay have a free version! I have met a few incredible people already and I can’t wait to make friends all around the world!

    This app was one that quickly became one of my favorites, and shortly after that became my way of communicating with some of my favorite people! The avatars are really cute, and I love the lack of pressure to be attractive and sound super interesting. The fact that you have to wait to receive your letters is so amazing and really gives the pen pal feel. Although most of the time the wait isn’t actually that long, especially compared to if you were to send a physical letter. I can honestly say I’ve made some real connections with people who I consider to be some of my best friends. One thing I will note is that the age range can be kinda big for some. The lowest range you can have is ages 0-20, which is okay when you’re on the higher end of the range but I can see that getting a little weird for ages 13-16. Obviously there’s a way around this by turning off auto match and just searching manually (which is probably what I would do anyway since I enjoy scrolling through all the bios) but that kind of ruins the point of having the easy auto match feature for some. Outside of that, this app is 100% amazing and you honestly can’t find something like it anywhere else.

    This app is really worth giving a try. The uniqueness of it, makes it very special. In the word of instant messaging, it gives back the vibes of nostalgic days of letters. And above all, you can find new friends here, from all over the world, based upon your interests! That's something you won't find in others. A clean, Ad-Free UI, makes it good-to-go.

  • Best I’ve found so far! Jun 29, 2020

    By Mntharp22
    I always wanted a pen pal as a kid, so when I found this app, I knew I had to try it. Within my first day of getting the app, I found four people I wanted to get to know and three of them actually wrote back to me! Since then, I’ve made many more friends and I’ve kept conversations going for over a week now. I’m really learning a lot about other countries and cultures. It’s like going to social studies class, but with more social and less studies. I actually like the fact that the letters take time to send because believe it or not, it keeps the conversation alive. Since you can’t instantly reply, you don’t run out of things to talk about as easily and you can take time to say what you really want to say. It also gives you something to look forward to during the week. The only thing I have a problem with is the age range slider when your looking for pen pals. I wish you could go less than 20 because I’m several years younger, and I don’t want to get results for 19 and 20 year olds when I’m trying to meet people around my age. Otherwise I love the app!

    App is still very buggy on Android. Typing a message is very laggy and the app frequently closes after typing for too long. I'm guessing it might be because of their spell check feature; maybe if we had the option to disable that, we'd be able to write letters without encountering any bugs. I write my letters on my computer now, and I hate that it had to result to that. Please find a fix for the typing problem.

    You can vent here and everyone's understanding. Is easy to make friends here, plus the waiting time makes is more exciting. Also it's completely ad-free But, the keyboard lags soo much, and it continues even after you have closed the app, its horrible, you cant do anything with this, the only option is to force stop the keyboard. And dont even get me started on the t&c.

    The app is still sooo buggy When i complete writing 2-3 letters reply my keyboard hangs and only work normal upon restart Another thing is whenever i get notification about new letter comming on Map it wont show for like 30min The concept of app is good but if you do this minor thing it'll really make it more enjoyable 1. Add some icon if a letter is coming with an attachment , it'll be really great and make it more exciting for a letter 2. Decrease the time for delivery in another country

    I really enjoy using this app but right now I'm honestly so mad at the new draft system. Okay so I typed this long letter out yesterday, saved it to drafts, went about my business and the next day I come on the app to send it and it wouldnt let me click send. I'm like okay, let me save this draft again in case something happens and I do just that. I exit the app, come back to check and the draft is deleted. I'm extremely irritated 🙂 I dont know what kind of bug this is but please fix it

  • Great product, could use some tweaks Jul 18, 2019

    By Xegyn
    I started using this app about a month ago and so far I’ve been loving it! I’ve communicated with different people from different countries and the it’s fascinating to connect with people with different backgrounds and find your similarities and differences. It’s a great way to learn about the culture of places (that you’ve never been to) from a local. So far all of my pen pals have been really friendly and I look forward to receiving letters from them! A few things that can make this app better on the iPad are 1) support for horizontal mode and 2) a larger pinned view. This is mainly a reading and writing app so the iPad app should really support landscape view because that is how you are spending most of the time, typing on the keyboard. The pinned view shows the last received message that you are replying to, but on the iPad it’s tiny and the height is not adjustable, so it requires a lot of scrolling up and down in a tiny view. I think those are the 2 pain points using this app regularly but other than that, love it!

    Its a really fun app! I really love the idea of sending letter! Back then I love to collect designed letter papers and envelopes in hope that I could write letter to someone but never did. I like exchanging letter because people actually put effort into writing them and it makes me feel very excited to receive one! The only reason I give 4 stars is because just like the name of the app, your keyboard becomes very SLOW when typing, and it affecting the whole keyboard function on other apps too.

    I'm giving 4 stars because of a few things. The one issue I have is the time that takes a letter to arrive. I understand the concept of the app but it just seems a little more than it should be. The second issue is the countdown – I would appreciate if there is more accurate one, not just by hours.

    Dear Slowly, Please add automatic or manual rotation on iPad. It's a MUST. It's necessary. It's crippling not to have it. ➡️Update: there is now a toggle on settings to turn landscape mode on/off. Going from three stars to four ;p Well done! Previous review ⬇️ This is a good app. This is a wonderful app to make connections around the world. One of your House Rules is to never ask for contact info. That's wrong. On your website you say/imply that the purpose of this app is Dating. How is one supposed to communicate via Slowly (all) the time? No. Just NO. Nonsense. Let me tell you something else. Don't even think about adding chat to the app just to keep people inside. No. I'm one of those users/customers that spends money. I'm pretty sure that I have spent around $25 buying stamps. Maybe more. Only to find out that it doesn't make a difference. Only the accomplishments ones are effective IMO. So get more of those. Maybe. So here is my main proposal. Add a feature that give users the freedom to request contact information like... a phone number without fear of being block or cancelling their account. Unless they get reported for harassment, of course. For this... Freedom of Contact Request feature.... charge a dollar. Or two. Make it accesible so many people will use it.

    This is actually a good app to make pen pals. But I think you should add additional question as a conviction question (with yes-no answer) to prevent something with accidental touch on the screen lol. Bsc I lost a friend in this app after accidentaly touched 'remove'. So sad. Btw, is there a way so I can get tht friend's contact back and hit her up?
