Great app with some frustrating issue

This app provides an amazing community and great tools. But there are couple of issues that are frustrating to be honest. 1. Once you choose a native language, it will be used for their courses (im bilingual and it forces me to learn the Korean ,for example, in my mother tongue instead of English which is easier for me). 2. Dark mode... i mean come on... it’s 2021

Downloading messages problem

I’ll give two star cuz it’s not good as much as other apps you have pretty bad problem in this app i hope you hurry up and fix it ...
the problem is downloading an old messages take a lot of time and internet I have a tough time to re-download my old messages if i have been absent for a short while ... and it worked slowly and take a lot of unnecessary internet data ( telegram and Facebook messenger for example it’s better than hello talk when it comes to download a message ) even if i have been absent for long time they’re still downloading my old messages quickly and without loads of data .... try to fix this problem and it will be the one of lovely app around the world

Time limit for listeners

I used to recommend this app for my friends and who want to learn new language but sadly I can’t recommend it no more , because of the time limit for listeners this app became really bad for me and my friends and the funny part is I wasn’t using it for a long time so today I updated the app to use it “ wish I never did that “ and it’s not even 4h since I started using the voiceroom as a listener the app kicked out the room and told me of the 8h limit !! Like bruh this is not cool at least let 8h pass and I will understand but what happened got me really mad that I deleted my account and the app itself, hope u fix this problem for future users otherwise I don’t think anyone who can’t afford this app would use it ☹️

Developer Response ,

Unfortunately, the Voice Room service uses a third-party service provider and requires payment. At present, the function is almost fully open to the outside world. We can no longer bear the cost of these costs, and even the VIP fee cannot cover these costs. Thank you for your understanding and support!
