    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.
  • Add native American languages to the app

  • FIXED: Won’t let me change my gender

    I’ve used tandem years ago, and it worked fine (which is why I’m giving it the first two stars). Unfortunately, I’m trying to make a profile now and choose “Female” as my gender, and it gives me an error when I try to continue, saying “Sorry, something went wrong. Please try again.” So, as of right now, the app is unusable. I’ll give it a better rating once I can actually use it. UPDATE: Actually, restarting the app fixed the problem. It’s still a bit off-putting for there to be an immediate problem when trying to sign up for an app, though.
  • Love it !

    I have 2 ideas that would improve the experience. Have a range of 1-5 when people sign up to show how much they desire to learn the language. Or how much time they will give daily/ weekly. Then people can be paired with others who are willingly to spend a similar amount of time with each other. This has been a problem because some people don’t want to give that much time. Or too much time. Also, have an option to pair people with their same level of language, which would require a range of 5 options for language level, not 3. Being paired with somebody at the same level has worked out the best for me. This would result in people using the app more and relationships lasting longer. Maybe some people would like to be paired with others who have the opposite skill level too. Both of these ideas could be a filter for when searching for learners to chat with. Give sample structures and ideas on how to go about learning. Ex. One person translates their language sentence into the other using google etc. They read it in the new language and the other listens and corrects. And they can switch.
  • Great App!

    This app has been a huge help to my husband and me with our language learning goals. We have made many friends who we will stay in contact with for years to come. My only complaint is that sometimes when it’s super busy and a lot of people are using the app it slows down or crashes, but that has only happened to us a couple of times in about 6 months of using the app.

    I love this app and I’ve only had it for 3 days! But I downloaded this on my iPad and want to transfer it to my phone, but I forgot my password. I wish you could change your email and password... it would make it so much better! Anyways I still love it, I just wish I could change the email I used and password...
  • Recommend for you

    This app is good for those who wants to improve knowledge in any language. Developers are good people! It’s not like you need pay money to be able to learn something (e.g. you can set many languages to study and it’s free, you don’t need vip membership)! Here some billing things but not so much and they don’t bother you! I highly recommend you to download it!

    Please implement iPad landscape for Tandem. I would love to use this app with my Smart Keyboard, but it is nearly impossible as the app does not work in landscape. Thank you!
