An absolute NECESSITY for anyone learning ANY language!!

This is such an amazing app. I’m in model UN and the way I approach subjects/topics goes with trying to get in contact with some people from those countries alongside of actual research from the countries. In all reality the app is a 4.5/5, but there’s no 1/2 star, so rounding down to 4 felt wrong, and in the end it is truly worthy of a 5. I’ll explain some of its flaws briefly:

They have a feature which lets you earn free coins by watching some ads, but no matter if you’ve never watched a video it’ll tell you that you’ve watched the maximum amount of ads and can’t get free coins. Newest update deleted my messages, but it’s not much of a problem, but I see how it can be for some. The chat feature itself has such a questionable design where to your conversations split into a “friends” and “chats” category that doesn’t matter anyway since they both lead to the same thing.

Other than that, the pros are nameless, and buying coins is a MUST! I buy about $10 worth a month, on top of getting the free daily coins! SERIOUSLY SUCH AN AMAZING APP

It’s pretty good 1 flaw though

The app is actually pretty sweet. Basically the language tinder app lol lots of nice people willing to learn and teach or just be friends. The only issue is the “coin” system. Obviously since it’s a free app they have to use some system to make money but it costs coins to do everything from searching new people and checking their profiles or each message you send someone costs coins or if someone sees your profile to uncover their face it cost coins. There are free ways to earn coins by watching 5 ads you get 40 coins total for the day but that’s about it. The coin system is a hassle and makes it hard to chat because you don’t know if the other person has enough to continue chatting or not unless they say so. Other than that pretty useful app it’s always fun meeting new people and exploring cultures.

Used to be Good, but slow ..... now useless to me.

I really, really used to like this app!! Since joining I've made plenty of new friends and I enjoying being on it. In the beginning, the only issue was that this app takes forever to load profile pictures, chats and loading any kind of saved information when navigating through tabs. Whenever I use other apps on my phone I don't have to wait at all for anything to load and my internet is really fast. Now, ever since Langmate changed from an app of ads and coins system to an app of payment membership it has become useless for me. I live in America and there's a 13 or 14 hour difference with Japan throughout the year so it was never easy to stay in touch with friends due to the time difference. I would have liked to stay on this app with the ads and coins only feature option, but I won't be paying for this app because it makes very little sense due to time difference between America and Japan. Thank you Langmate. It was great while it lasted!!
