    Finding pen pals isn't quite as easy as it used to be, but luckily this app brings pen pals from all around the world to your phone. I have so much fun sending and receiving anywhere from 5 to 10 letters a day!

  • 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.

    It's really nice app, blah blah... Let's talk in general. In this app you can write all your thinks in one letter, one big letter, for being sure you say everything. You waiting for new answers every day. You do wanna receive letters, read them slowly and write new answer. And here you go! Now you have pal friend! That's how it works. Advice: don't ask instagram or other in second letter. You can ask when your friend is okay with this.

    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!

    Update: The web app session keeps expiring every week, requiring to use this app to re-login every week, starts getting annoying. Because how I have been getting less and less replies, I have started to forget about it, and only use it to reply a couple of true pals, yet the web session keeps expiring too often for me. --- Initial review: Nice and interesting idea. Simple and functional app. Non intrusive at all, hope that doesn't changes! No ads either. But the magic starts fainting after some months of use, people stops replying you or just never reply you back. There are some opportunity areas that could be improved on, such as promoting people to reply back your messages, as some people just forget giving themselves time to reply back after reading the message quickly, or some just get lazy to do so, leaving you wondering what happened, as any quick "all ok?" message would take the same long time up to 48 hrs to deliver. Also, it can be confusing on the first usage, as the UI and their functionality placement can intimidate at first.

    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.

    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!

    The person who came up with the idea really need appreciation and kudos to the team for UI and for the behind-the-scenes works. I love this product and now I have reduced the usage of social media because of this app. The app have some glitches but I believe it will get fixed soon. Other than it's an amazing app you won't be disappointed.
  • Slowly, surely a fast favorite. Nov 14, 2019

    I’ve only been on the app for a few days but I already love it. I was searching for a place to find pen pals and learn about new people and places along the way. Typical websites for this thing take a quick turn south because many will use it for dating. Slowly makes you create an avatar to keep the focus on communication for getting to know someone better. I really love that! I think the fact that each letter takes hours to arrive depending on where in the world they originated is amazing too because sometimes when communication is instant.. it can feel overwhelming to write back to so many people that you lose sight of the main purpose. I find this app to be therapeutic as well since I take my time to write to the other person and explain a lot about life on my side of the world. It’s also a lot of fun to hear what the other person has to say. I imagine that some of the friendships started on here will last quite a while! Thank you.

    A great platform to connect people around you based on similar interests. The main feature is letter writing, it's helping me develop patience and connecting on deeper level. Letters speak volume. Nothing in comparison to other social media. Finally something which is not instant gratification but helping us learn things.

  • 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!
  • UNSAFE APP - Full of GHOSTS & CATFISHES Apr 11, 2021

    By Lems815
    I am a young introverted American woman, and was excited to find this app last year. However, I must urge caution before you download this app! People are NOT who they claim to be. Every correspondence has ended suspiciously after a time. Many people ghost after a few letters. Other correspondences suggest a darker side to the app. For example, I started talking to “Sebastian” in Sept 2020, who claimed to be a 36-year-old man in Germany, working as a pilot. After 2 months of writing long letter to each other every day, he vanished. I was hurt to be ghosted, but I understood that life changes. 3 months later, that same account now claims to be a young woman in Serbia with all different details. I believe that this is either a case of catfishing, misleading me and and others about their true identity, or possible scammers with malicious intent. I reported this to the Slowly support team, and received a very neutral and unsympathetic response. To vulnerable people, especially - please be careful!!! You DO NOT know who you are really talking to, or who the creep writing back truly is. I am devastated, and feel deceived and betrayed, and my anxiety about the whole mess is off the charts. This app is UNSAFE! User BEWARE!

    I can see the app getting better and better everyday! Only thing your premium price is quiet expensive. And there is no one time purchase either. 12 months plan only 107,88€ is quiet a lot for a penpal app. If you can think of one time purchase in a reasonable way your app will be loved. I appreciate what I can do for free.
  • Best Way to Connect with Others!—One Adjustment Oct 25, 2020

    By Lín王
    This app has surely become one of my all time favorites and I’ve been using it for almost a year now. I’ve met so many fantastic people and learned about different counties and cultures... the informational value of this app and connecting with other people speaks for itself. However, the one thing I would improve is the age restriction function. Currently, the only group you can choose if you’re a minor is 0-20, however as someone who isn’t of age yet I don’t feel comfortable conversing with people who are 18+ years and I wish the search function commemorated that by adjusting so that minors can only speak with other minors if they so wish to. It’s not like I’ve encountered any people who have made me uncomfortable myself, I just find it a bit harder to relate to people who are in a different stage of life than I am and wish to find people who are similar to me, especially in age. Other than that, Slowly is the perfect app :)

    The app works really well, but... I've sent 7 postcards out in 2 weeks, and have not gotten any from anyone else. I don't have any incoming, either. I know it's supposed to go slow, but it doesn't feel like people on this app even want to use it.

    A really great app to bring people together from all over the world. I haven't ever had any major issues with the people on the platform & I never feel pressured to answer letters immediately, unlike other chat apps. The only thing I would love to see is more character customisation for our profiles. 8.5/10. 🐼💜
  • What You're Missing. Jul 28, 2020

    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.

    I have been using Slowly for quite a while now, and I have to say... I love it! I have gained so many new friends from across the world. Not to mention how nice everyone on Slowly is! I am very grateful for Slowly, meeting people from a different country and culture than my own has really opened up my mind. So at this point you might be asking yourself, “Why did you rate it four stars if you love it so much?” Well, that is only because of one reason... their age range system. The smallest numbers it can go to is 0-20, and as a minor, I don’t like getting messages from people who are legal adults (accidental or not). Also, because of this I often have to spend a good 5-10 minutes just looking for someone in my age range. All in all, I love Slowly. It’s a wonderful app, but this one flaw is pretty annoying.

    Update: The web app session keeps expiring every week, requiring to use this app to re-login every week, starts getting annoying. Because how I have been getting less and less replies, I have started to forget about it, and only use it to reply a couple of true pals, yet the web session keeps expiring too often for me. --- Initial review: Nice and interesting idea. Simple and functional app. Non intrusive at all, hope that doesn't changes! No ads either. But the magic starts fainting after some months of use, people stops replying you or just never reply you back. There are some opportunity areas that could be improved on, such as promoting people to reply back your messages, as some people just forget giving themselves time to reply back after reading the message quickly, or some just get lazy to do so, leaving you wondering what happened, as any quick "all ok?" message would take the same long time up to 48 hrs to deliver. Also, it can be confusing on the first usage, as the UI and their functionality placement can intimidate at first.

    Useful app to connect with people from around the world. One downside I noticed is that it takes more than 5 minutes to open the application on my Android device. Because of this, I can't open Slowly at all. Please fix this issue immediately, thanks!

  • UNSAFE APP - Full of GHOSTS & CATFISHES Apr 11, 2021

    By Lems815
    I am a young introverted American woman, and was excited to find this app last year. However, I must urge caution before you download this app! People are NOT who they claim to be. Every correspondence has ended suspiciously after a time. Many people ghost after a few letters. Other correspondences suggest a darker side to the app. For example, I started talking to “Sebastian” in Sept 2020, who claimed to be a 36-year-old man in Germany, working as a pilot. After 2 months of writing long letter to each other every day, he vanished. I was hurt to be ghosted, but I understood that life changes. 3 months later, that same account now claims to be a young woman in Serbia with all different details. I believe that this is either a case of catfishing, misleading me and and others about their true identity, or possible scammers with malicious intent. I reported this to the Slowly support team, and received a very neutral and unsympathetic response. To vulnerable people, especially - please be careful!!! You DO NOT know who you are really talking to, or who the creep writing back truly is. I am devastated, and feel deceived and betrayed, and my anxiety about the whole mess is off the charts. This app is UNSAFE! User BEWARE!
