After 3 years the project is BACK! V2 release with a completely new UI and features! Try it!
All the "not working" reviews will be related to pre V2 release, apologies to everybody.
This is a free app to let you send letters to anybody in the world. Beside just sending this app will try to translate your letter into the language of your penpal!
So just type in your language and send your letter to anybody in the world!
Thanks to the free translation engines we could find and some resources we had, the app is completely free and there are no in-app purchase.
I hope you will meet many new friends!
To start meeting new friends, send friend request to suggested users on the initial screen. We have no idea who those people are but we hope they will be around and interested in what you have to say.
You can also select friends from the map or from the search menu.
Send them a friend request by clicking on + on the profile details screen.
If you receive a friend request from somebody it will show in the Requests screen, click on a user to accept or decline his friend request.
Once you accept the friend request, we will suggest a fun first question to "brake the ice", you are free to edit this and send whatever you had in mind.
In case of abuse, please contact us right away on mobilepenpals@gmail !
This is not meant to be an instant chat app, please allow your penpals some time to respond.
New feature since V2.4: Once you are accepted as a friend you are able to send 10 second voice messages. This will work for android users only for now.
If you like group chats more, you can join news groups or create your own.
Please contact us on facebook http://www.facebook.com/Openpals if you have questions/ideas.
Note on location privacy:
If you are afraid to share your location, disable the location on your phone during account creation, you will not be visible. We think sharing location is great, but if you are a minor or paranoid for whatever reason, feel free to use this hint.
