    • This is one of the best free talking places.

    • I use this app on many devices with no problems at all and have been using it for a couple years now.

    • Best app for chatting I have ever found. But sometimes the app will not allow you to send images for periods of time. It also lags from time to time which makes it so that some messages won’t load until after you’ve sent a message and so forth.

    • I love this app! It’s really good and also if anyone has been trying to send something and then it says ” sending” but takes forever to send. Try checking your internet connection then update your app.

    • Awesome App!
