Remember the good old days? I am talking about years before iPhone and iPod made their debut. Having lived through the 80s and 90s, I can tell you that connecting with people around the world was not so easy. These days, you just log on to Facebook and Twitter, and you are instantly in touch with people around the globe. In those times, one way to find new international friends was by finding pen pals. Thanks to Pen Pals for iPhone, you can now do the very same thing on your iPhone. The difference is you don’t actually have to write paper letters to your pen pals.
Pen Pals makes it so easy to find new friends. All you have to do is create a message, add your photos and audio clips, and you are on your way to finding a new friend. Your messages are sent to other people who are looking for pen pals. Once connected, you can exchange photos and all kinds of information.
Pen Pals takes advantage of push notifications to keep you updated on your new messages and pals. The app’s interface is pretty intuitive and makes it easy to add photos and audio clips. There is a certain level of intrigue in using this app as you never know who will be your new pen pal.
The concept has worked in the past, and there is no reason it can’t work in the 21st century. If you are into finding new pen pals and have the time to share things and communicate with them, Pen Pals for iPhone can be a whole lot of fun.
