Great application

I stumbled across this application following some nostalgia fueled remembrance of a former similar application on the original iPhone. That application had you receiving random bottles on your virtual beach, and starting correspondence based on those initial bottles. Exceptionally similar, although I’m not sure if they’re related, this application expands on that concept in many ways, allowing you to exchange photos to compliment your dialogue. I also appreciate how this application sternly promotes a positive environment, and warns against unwanted sexual advances or harassment. This further promotes genuine, kind hearted dialogue with persons abroad that allows you to share cultural and geographic nuances, which overall can enhance the users perspective of the world we share. Purchases are available to slightly enhance the experience, but are in no way necessary or forced upon you by the developer, which is greatly appreciated. For that reason, I intend to make a small but needless purchase just to show my appreciation for the application and its developers. I’ve used this application to replace my social media use, and share meaningful interactions around the world. 10/10; would toss a bottle into the abyss again.

A Sad Costumer ,

I hope this gets more popular!

Overall the app is a blessing because there are literally no spamming ads! On here you can voluntarily click one on a treasure chest that is a short ad for getting a free bottle or coin which is so sweet as it is always available in case you want to talk to more people in the day.

They genuinely want you to meet new people and learn more about other countries, it’s not a greedy app.


You should let followers/friends get notifications whenever someone posts an adventure so they’ll know in case someone has to be away for a while or is leaving for good to deter the assumption of ghosting.

Please, can we clip pictures on our adventures without having to pay? Or at least give the option of watching an ad for it?

Finally, it would be neat if we could create groups that anyone could join for friendly group chats! Wouldn’t it be cool if in able to get people to join you send out a dolphin worth like 50 coins/bottles with a letter from the admin themselves?


Great app but there are some times problems.

I loved the app and concept to it. Which is why I gave it four stars. The only problem is that people don’t talk on the app. I know it’s the people and a part of me but I do want to tell people to not except to much but to maybe gain some Social skills (this was my experience). There were a lot of not great people on this app that might try to manipulate you (that is with all apps, so keep that in mind). I just want people to know so that way you guys don’t feel disappointed in not making friends or trust the wrong people on this app. I think that this app is a great way to and talk to people through tough conversations. I hope you guys enjoy the app. I did, I just don’t need it anymore ☺️.
