  • love it Jun 11, 2020

    By Piciman
    i have learned soooo much from this app. i wish i would have found out about it sooner. i love that native spanish speakers are able to correct my wording so that it sounds more natural, and that i can learn about places from all over the world. since i am a 20 year old girl, i have gotten around 1000 messages in 3 weeks, which is definitely entertaining, but can be a little scary too. be careful who you talk to. i have learned that if someone asks for a voice message or picture (which the app doesn’t allow) within the first few messages, i should probably stop talking to them. one bug that i hate is that messages don’t send if you’re not connected to wifi. it’s really hard to write long messages in another language multiple times. overall, this app has taught me so much and given me an opportunity to practice my spanish, which is exactly what i was looking for. i highly recommend it.
  • Great connections, app could be better Jan 5, 2020

    By Bay-ish
    Made many connections in the language of my current focus. It’s quick and it’s simple. The only drawbacks is that after a strong language exchange partner is made, the app itself (Speaky) quickly becomes limited in it ability. We usually more often than not have to jump to a different platform, one with more stable capabilities and features. Overall, again –– great, no-hassle connections!!
  • needs some help Aug 1, 2018

    By artsjack
    a couple things about this app. it’s a very good one, it’s concept is a great idea of having other people teach you their language BUT there is still this large amount of men from the middle east who will message you and ultimately flirt with you. there is also a glitch where when you reply to a message, your text is there twice but when you go back into the chat after the person replied there is only one text bubble from you, it’s really weird. i personally wouldn’t recommend this app because of the overwhelming amount of men on this app who are just looking for fun.

    Hey speaky team I really love this app and I really appreciate ur work but I really have a big problem that I cannot get into this app ...from the morning I’m trying to log in and it’s just doesn’t work and I don’t want to lose my account and my communication with my friends so please help me what is the problem?? Btw I’m using this app since March 2020 and this problem didn’t happen to me before.. sorry for my poor English🤭🙂🌚 but please help me lots of love and thank u for ur hard work 🤩❤️❤️
  • eh it’s okay Jul 4, 2018

    By Chichilu
    It has a good concept, you can definitely learn a different language but as I look at it, it’s more of a like friend/dating app. You can’t even add pictures to help people or for them to see your handwriting. Has anyone noticed that there’s these korean people who will talk to you for a day or two and then all of a sudden never log in again? Same with some other people...: I’ll be talking to them and then they will never talk on there again. Has this happened to anyone. Overall it’s an okay app, definitely needs some improvement and also the app can be very laggy.
  • IM GETTING CULTURED, although there are some bugs Oct 12, 2018

    By LanguageGod
    Speaky is great! It’s my first day on it and I love it! It has connected me with people from all over the world and I have learned so much already. Although there are some bugs! Sometimes I try to send a message and it does not go through to and I have to refresh the app multiple times before it works. Other than that the app is great!
  • Wow Jun 26, 2018

    By my knee itches
    It’s a pretty good app, but It doesn’t have the ability to send voice messages or photos, so it’s a bit harder to get help with homework. Another thing is that when I send messages, it never shows I’ve sent it. Once I leave the chat it still says I have a new message and haven’t responded, even though I just did. It makes it a lot more difficult to communicate because I don’t think people are receiving my messages and if I double text people will think I’m weird.
  • Great site but a few glitches Nov 15, 2017

    By Gitana12345
    This site is great for talking to people in your target language. However, there are some bugs that need to be fixed. Sometimes the app just shuts off. Also, whenever I correct someone’s writing and submit it, the app shuts off. Suggestion: A built in translation mechanism would be awesome. Don’t know how feasible it is though. It would just be cool to have one within the app so I don’t have to keep exiting and going to my google translate app. Other than that I’ve been able to correspond with people just fine. I like the filters for finding people. Those seem to work very well. I like only talking to people of my same gender because with men you never know if they’re going to act all weird (sorry—speaking from experience).
  • New problem Nov 27, 2018

    By ilyass00
    I’m using this app for more than 3 years First,I can’t send pictures to people or voice notes or even go down to write another line But now it get even worse, cuz people sending me messages and I can’t reply them , like the messages can’t sent So please fix this problem as soon as possible 🙌🏼
  • Buggy Apr 18, 2018

    By Room a
    The app doesn’t always send my messages through, and some of the messages disappear after being sent. Also, I don’t always receive messages from the language partner. There is an issue with the internet connection constantly disconnecting and reconnecting. However, the filters are good and there are plenty of people using the app who are willing to help you with your language studies.

  • Terrible app Jan 29, 2020

    By JadeC67
    Wow, at first I thought this app was amazing, but after using it for months now, I deleted it. Half the time if wont send my messages, so I have to type out the same message like 5 times or more. No audio and no pictures can be sent. A lot of trashy guys like to use it to send sexual things. There is no way to report them and there are no rules for the app. The most frustrating part is that the app bugged me every time I opened it to sign up to receive alerts on my phone and yet once I finally signed up for alerts, I never get alerts! Wow, HelloTalk and Tandem are WAY better apps. This is the worst app I’ve used to learn a language. If I could give negative stars, I would.
  • Very buggy Apr 22, 2020

    By j3242kt1066
    Is this app still supported? Is the company behind it dead. Speaky is so buggy & has been for a long time. Main complaint: You send a message, it disappears. Who knows if it sent... who knows what you sent. I presume the same applies to the person on other end. You send a reply and... no reply. I’d love to use speaky, but it needs to be fixed. Sometime this century would be nice. I probably downloaded this a couple years ago and check it now and then... no improvements are apparent. Right now you are way behind HelloTalk, which is recommend way more than Speaky. Please improve Speaky if you want to change my mind.
  • Messages disappear!! Mar 25, 2019

    By Renee_Kennedy_Yoga
    I want to love this app, I really do. It’s a wonderful concept and 90% of the people I’ve met genuinely want to practice language. However, the message disappearing bug really hinders the user experience and makes it difficult to maintain conversations. I’m never sure if the person saw my message go through and it just disappeared on my end, and the fact that there’s already somewhat of a language barrier makes this problem super confusing. Fix that and it would be five stars!
  • The app almost functions great but has a critical failure Aug 30, 2018

    By Twylafaut57
    Every aspect of the app appears to work great and it makes finding people very easy...but then it doesn’t work when you try to talk to them. Often when trying to send a message it just disappears and after refreshing acts as though the message was never typed out and sent, making it almost impossible to carry on a conversation with anybody in this app. Fix this major issue and I will give this app a good rating.
  • Would be great if messages sent Mar 15, 2019

    By CDubDC78
    None of my chat messages are sending. I’ll type/send a few lines and if I go back to the home screen my messages are gone as if they never sent. From other reviews this appears to be a recurring problem. The potential for this app is great, which is why I gave it 2 stars, but an app that fails in its primary and most basic function-to send messages and chat-needs some serious reworking. I want to love this app but all I am is frustrated.
  • Very poor performance Jul 17, 2021

    By SepidehShahmohammad
    I rarely write reviews. In fact I believe I have not yet done so in App Store. But the absurdity of this app has forced my hand. I do not even understand how it is still operational since every single page in it crashes and stops working. After choosing a person to talk to, the send option in the chat stops working. And the chats you have started disappear without warning. I will keep on discouraging everyone I can from using and installing this app. This is how much I am disappointed by it!
  • User for over a few years May 26, 2021

    By pjk.jkk
    I checked the App today and I am unable to recover my account. I was using it yesterday. What’s going on? How can I get my account back? UPDATE: I was finally contacted on May 26, 2021 to ask if the problem had been automatically fixed. It has not. I recommend as soon as you find a language partner, to switch to any other messaging App before you lose contact with all your international language learning friends.
  • Trouble logging into the app... Mar 10, 2021

    By EvaLou42
    For a few days now Speaky won’t let me log in... it just keeps tells me “an error occurred while connecting”. It seems many others have had this problem as well. I tried deleting the app and re downloading it, restarting my iPhone, and checking for software updates.... However, NONE of the above seemed to fix the issue.... has anyone out there found a way to overcome this?!?!
  • Too many bugs Nov 26, 2018

    By Merry yuk
    I like the concept of the app but if I can’t send any messages how am I supposed to enjoy it. The app has been messing up and no one is fixing these bugs!?? Why???! It’s so frustrating to message someone and find out the message never went through. Even when you try to resend it, it doesn’t go through. The app is a tug of war. So I can’t say it’s worth your time
  • It ok Jun 10, 2017

    By Christanf
    It's a good app overall, but it definitely needs work. I can't correct messages because it kicks me off every time I try to send them with corrections, and then, of course, you can't call or video chat anyone. I mean you could add them on Skype or WhatsApp, but I wish you could just do all that from this app. That would definitely make it a better app!

  • The app has issues sending messages Feb 11, 2019

    This is a really cool idea, but when ever I write a message, more times than not, the message will disappear instead of sending. It’s really difficult to get a message out. Fix this and I will improve my rating.

    This app has really been helpful to those of us that wishes to learn other languages but don’t know how to go about it. This is a great avenue to do that. Thanks to Speaky.

  • Great chat feature Sep 25, 2020

    By Vanessa Murray
    This has an excellent chat feature and some good filters for finding the people you want to chat with. However, it would be much better if there was also a video chat Orión for secure video chats that don’t require giving out your socials. Actually speaking and listening is important too!
  • We love your app but ... Sep 27, 2018

    By Manalllll
    That’s very likly app but it has mush problems like when we send a message it don’t send we must close app and resend it again and it need reconnection every time we out of it . We would like you to improve the app .
  • Language Exchange Dec 25, 2019

    By Polyglot in Tennessee
    Speaky is generally an excellent way to meet others who are serious about languages. There aren’t nearly as many spammers as one sees elsewhere. Caution is advised wherever we go on the Internet, but my experiences here have been very positive.
  • I enjoy the app Jan 15, 2020

    By Ash GMU
    This app has been great so far some creepy men who are trying to date or hit on you but majority of the people really want to learn so I would suggest trying it out!
  • Love it! Jul 8, 2018

    By Sarsar21 baybay
    Speaky is so great! Although there are a few glitches, it’s an amazing tool to learn and practice a different language from your native tongue. I’ve met some awesome people and we learn from one another.

  • Just Text: Neither Visual nor Audio Jul 25, 2019

    By Faith, Hope, Charity
    Some weeks ago, I switched from an Apple iPhone 5c to a 6. On the 5c, it only had a microphone (which I was unable to use ‘cause that phone was outdated), but the 6 neither had the camera nor the microphone when I opened a chat. Honestly, I could care less about the camera, but I was really looking forward to speaking with someone, especially to learn a new language.
  • Very interesting but.. Jan 18, 2019

    By han9639
    I think that this app has a very big potential, you can practice you language skills for free. But there is also few issues like many times I was trying to send a message and it wasn’t delivered.. unfortunately I don’t know why but it’s somehow deleted from history like I’ve never written it .. that makes me crazy .. please, do something with that ..!
  • Not bad but... Dec 8, 2018

    By My Viking
    Hi, To be frankly I install this app after a time that was removed but as like as previous version there’s a problem to me with this app! There are always some accounts that are online all the day! And when you ask them to talk, there’s no one to answer your asking! And it wasn’t just in one or two occasions but more than ten times! Are they real or fake accounts?!
  • Great App - Needs Work Jul 26, 2017

    By Mark8746739
    I love the concept and there are so many people on this app which is great! However, every time I try to correct a message, the app crashes. Also, I wish there would be a way to find native speakers from certain countries. I'm trying to learn Spanish from Argentina which is quite different from Spanish from other parts of the world.

  • It ok Jun 10, 2017

    By Christanf
    It's a good app overall, but it definitely needs work. I can't correct messages because it kicks me off every time I try to send them with corrections, and then, of course, you can't call or video chat anyone. I mean you could add them on Skype or WhatsApp, but I wish you could just do all that from this app. That would definitely make it a better app!
  • Ok, but room for improvement Oct 8, 2018

    By Shadowtoby
    The app is alright so far only it logs me out every time I check it, there's nothing really to do but text. Being able to send voice messages and photo and video messages would be nice. It also does something strange with the unread messages. I have to keep force quitting and restarting the app to get it to work.
  • Email Verification doesn’t work. May 27, 2020

    By The REALEST Reviewer
    I like the app, but my email address won’t verify and I am not seeing any progress on my profile. I’m guessing that is because my email won’t verify. I received the verification emails but the links don’t work and after trying to contact Speaky a few times I never hear back from them.
  • Unusable Mar 19, 2021

    By Kaylabug15
    The app crashes every five seconds. I’ve tried deleting and downloading it again multiple times but to no avail. All of my other apps work just fine, so I don’t know what it is about this one that keeps giving my phone aneurysms. It’s a pity because I liked the concept.
  • Some glitch? May 18, 2021

    By joyfulmonkey248
    I was using the apps some months ago and it worked fine but now there seems to be a glitch of some sort. I can’t send any messages. Also when I click my profile or anyone else’s profile, the app freezes.
  • Can’t reply to others May 29, 2019

    By karineromero
    Every time I try to reply to someone it glitches and erases my messages. At first it appears that it did send but my reply disappears later. Pls fix this problem. I would give it 5 stars if it wasn’t because of this issue.
  • Terrible app Jan 29, 2020

    By JadeC67
    Wow, at first I thought this app was amazing, but after using it for months now, I deleted it. Half the time if wont send my messages, so I have to type out the same message like 5 times or more. No audio and no pictures can be sent. A lot of trashy guys like to use it to send sexual things. There is no way to report them and there are no rules for the app. The most frustrating part is that the app bugged me every time I opened it to sign up to receive alerts on my phone and yet once I finally signed up for alerts, I never get alerts! Wow, HelloTalk and Tandem are WAY better apps. This is the worst app I’ve used to learn a language. If I could give negative stars, I would.
  • Very buggy Apr 22, 2020

    By j3242kt1066
    Is this app still supported? Is the company behind it dead. Speaky is so buggy & has been for a long time. Main complaint: You send a message, it disappears. Who knows if it sent... who knows what you sent. I presume the same applies to the person on other end. You send a reply and... no reply. I’d love to use speaky, but it needs to be fixed. Sometime this century would be nice. I probably downloaded this a couple years ago and check it now and then... no improvements are apparent. Right now you are way behind HelloTalk, which is recommend way more than Speaky. Please improve Speaky if you want to change my mind.
  • Very poor performance Jul 17, 2021

    By SepidehShahmohammad
    I rarely write reviews. In fact I believe I have not yet done so in App Store. But the absurdity of this app has forced my hand. I do not even understand how it is still operational since every single page in it crashes and stops working. After choosing a person to talk to, the send option in the chat stops working. And the chats you have started disappear without warning. I will keep on discouraging everyone I can from using and installing this app. This is how much I am disappointed by it!
  • User for over a few years May 26, 2021

    By pjk.jkk
    I checked the App today and I am unable to recover my account. I was using it yesterday. What’s going on? How can I get my account back? UPDATE: I was finally contacted on May 26, 2021 to ask if the problem had been automatically fixed. It has not. I recommend as soon as you find a language partner, to switch to any other messaging App before you lose contact with all your international language learning friends.
  • Trouble logging into the app... Mar 10, 2021

    By EvaLou42
    For a few days now Speaky won’t let me log in... it just keeps tells me “an error occurred while connecting”. It seems many others have had this problem as well. I tried deleting the app and re downloading it, restarting my iPhone, and checking for software updates.... However, NONE of the above seemed to fix the issue.... has anyone out there found a way to overcome this?!?!
  • Can’t Meet New People Dec 20, 2019

    By AWESOMEPERSON!
    When I would send a message to people, no one ever reads them. It seems only a few people who I spoke to before can see my messages. Two stars... Update: It appears after writing this review Speaky has decided to “suspend” my account. No reason provided. Also, a bunch of the people I used to speak with are appearing as “suspended users” as well. I do not recommend Speaky to anyone. At this point I wish I could give ZERO stars.
  • VERY stupid, cant use email to join Oct 11, 2019

    By cincoroles
    VERY VERY VERY STUPID that in 2019 the only way to join is via Facebook or Google which THIS APP DOES NOT NEED ACCESS TO. Why cant I use my email address? There are hundreds of email providers that people use around the world yet you STUPIDLY only allow the 2 options. I can only assume you have no intention of wanting to be a popular language chat app. Good luck, youre gonna need it if u actually expect to succeed long term. Idiots!
  • Big issues! Apr 5, 2019

    By justnotbuyingit
    I’m constantly texting people and it shows message send only to go back and text is gone, so you waist so much time writing and loosing. Huge flaw... you can sit and watch the connecting flash on and off, so their system just can’t seem to handle the demand. I use cell and WiFi connections, does it both ways so it’s on their end. They need to fix it or it’s not worth the frustration
  • Very bad Mar 3, 2019

    By aninhhajdbsj
    I downloaded this app to try and practice my Spanish and there were many things wrong with it. For one, I could not send any of my messages, they would not go through. I had connection to receive other people’s messages but I would send my message, check to see if it went through, and none ever did. Second, even if my messages did go through, the app could use improvement. There was no way to send audio messages or make a voice or video call, all of whichever crucial in learning a language. I would recommend downloading another app such as tandem if you are interested in language improvement, Speaky just didn’t work for me.
  • I CANNOT TEXT ANYONE!! May 31, 2021

    By kimi.a
    The worst app I have ever had on my phone. I will delete this right after this review... how can a texting app not let you to send any message??? I couldn’t use it but it also didn’t have any way to send voice messages... then how the heck can we learn correct pronunciation of a new word or practice listening and speaking??!!! This app is absolutely a good way to waste your time and internet.
