  • If you’re sexually harassed, Tandem will punish you

    I didn’t complain about another member. Tandem asked me to review him. I wrote that he was kind and helpful and I learned a lot but that he stopped talking to me after I declined to show him my breasts. Julianne from Tandem wrote and told me she had sent a warning to the user. I told her that was unexpected and unnecessary. No reply. There is a setting in Tandem where you can tell Tandem only to allow conversations from your own gender. Tandem has set that setting for me and I cannot change it. As a consequence of my truthful review, they have isolated me from half of all potential language partners.

    Of course this is a nice software. But I think here have some ideas for you guys. You guys can add Sth like personal blog like Facebook or Twitter. These things can arrow users post their photos or videos on it.

    There are nice folks in this exchange community, and the two stars are for them. The app itself isn't great. The interface is fancy but lacks a lot of forethought. Here are some examples. There are few options for filtering. People disappear very rapidly from the app, so you need to be ready to start a conversation immediately. Audio clips are a bit counterproductive for communication. There's already a level of awkwardness in trying to speak in a language you don't know. Trading audio clips adds a new level of anxiety. The green "activity" indicator can mean anything from logged in to logged in three days ago. The app is also buggy: notifications are missed and the same people rotate in and out of the chat list.
  • Where is your update?

    Everytime I go into the app, it tells me to go to the app store and update to the latest version of tandem. However, when I go to preview tandem, it doesn't show that the update is available. I am locked out of my account for the moment.
  • Poorly designed

    I don’t understand why I have to wait a week to start talking to someone. It’s very annoying.
  • Like G-rated Tinder but for language learners, lol

    I like the concept of meeting people from around the world and getting to know them while helping each other learn a new language. I downloaded the app today and have already started several fun conversations with people from halfway across the globe. So far no serious complaints. Maybe only complaint would be the ads, but that is a nuisance in every app these days if you want it to still be free. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
  • More care advised

    This is a fun app, but it gives the false impression that people are "screened." People should be aware that there are oodles of scammers, and that they phish for personal info. Verifying by facebook is a joke. If someone is kicked off, they just create a new account. Everyone has to use their common sense, but to say people are screened gives a false sense of security. I have met some interesting people, but people should be aware. Rating of age 12 is irresponsible
  • Excellent learning app!

    How do you expect people to communicate if we can’t use the translator
