    I love this app on my iPhone, however on the iPad it is incredibly limited by the simple lack of ability to use it in landscape mode. I was super excited when I saw this app available on iPad, because I’d much rather type messages to people on here instead of on my phone due to the keyboard case, however the keyboard case only works in landscape mode, thus rendering that useless. I don’t know a single person who enjoys typing on an iPad in portrait mode.

    C’est super! This app does almost everything i want it too. I like the text functionality that allows you to correct & translate messages people send you. I also like that you can just send voice messages instead of calling each other. It’s much less pressure. Overall you get such a bang for your buck with this app and you get what you put into it. So far I’ve met many people who are serious about language learning. Very patient and willing to help you if you help them... the fact that you can skip the line and get a 7 day free trial for tandem pro (without entering any card information) is so nice. After only 2 days using pro I can say paying for a subscription is absolutely worth it. One functionality I’d like added is the ability to turn voice messages into text... at times if someone I’m chatting with doesn’t understand what I said in a voice message I write out everything I said. It would be nice if a speech to text feature was available for voice messages. Also at times I want to speak but I don’t know what words I want to say. The quick action translate button is handy for texting but not for speaking. This means if i toggle from a text translation to a voice message I lose what I just translated... and unless I have a great memory I forget what I wanted to say. If there was a way for the translation to still be seen on the screen where you record a voice message that would fix everything.
  • Best App to learn a language

    This app is great with linking you to tutors as well as finding native speakers to chat with. Occasionally you will run into a random perv asking you for nudes BUT for the most part, most people are here to learn.
  • Good in principle, not great for learning

    This app has the right idea, and has worked in helping me find good people to practice Chinese with. But here are the the main issues with this app. First, you NEED a better iPad version! It doesn’t rotate into landscape mode so I can use it with my keyboard. That’s a show stopper for me! Second, I love the in-place translation services to facilitate communication when you don’t now how to say something, but many times I’m told that the translations aren’t great. Third, and this isn’t the fault of the developer, but most people on this site are more interested in just chatting in their own language, than learning/teaching. It seems more like a hangout place than a learning app. So you’ll have to sift through many people to find ones that are truly interested in helping you learn. But overall, this is a great concept and I hope the app continues to refine and become a learning tool.
  • Good app, but it needs more filters

    I love this app so much, it really helped me to learn the language I wanted, but from today something in the app changed and almost anyone with any language showed up on the community which wasn’t related to the language that I speak or learn! And I also got some messages from people with different language goals! I mean if there was a filter to choose which (countries/languages) do we want our profiles to be shown to, would’ve been absolutely great.
  • I love it

    I like the principle behind the app but except for meeting people it doesn’t do much for language skills
  • Still buggy!

    Can’t believe the chat UI is still buggy after a looooong time. I just install it every couple of months with some hole and see nothing changed! Chats list gets repeated like a loop! Haven’t seen such user-un-friedly app before!
  • Just get Hello Talk

    By morgan🖤
    It’s absolutely ridiculous how you have to fill out an application and have to be excepted to join the app. If you want to get going immediately just download hello talk. You make your account and give immediately start speaking with people and learning the languages. there’s no seven day wait and rejection because The dumb System doesn’t think you show your fullface in the profile picture
  • Not bad

    So far, so good. But I think the more you chat, the slower the app gets. So have a notebook so you can write the details from your conversations and then erase you messages frequently to keep it from slowing down. I think that might work.
