Pretzel - travel & languages
Travel, Social Networking IOS
Pretzel: connect travelers with like-minded locals for recommendations and advice AND connect language learners with native speakers for 1-on-1 practice. Pretzel is a video messaging app, so you will always talk with real people and not bots or spammers. There’s no pressure because turn-by-turn video messaging lets you watch and reply to messages whenever it fits your schedule. There are no appointments in Pretzel and you can connect to people in any time zone.
In exchange for the free help you get, simply pay-it-forward by giving help to other users who want advice about where you live or who want to practice your native language.
Pretzel is free to download and free to:
- Receive unlimited video messages.
- Browse everyone, everywhere.
- Make unlimited connections all over the world.
- Send up to 30 video messages every 24 hours.
- Add multiple expert or practice languages
If you ever hit the daily send-message limit, either wait for a fresh batch of messages or buy Extra Messages, which never expire.
ONLY MESSAGE WITH PEOPLE OF YOUR CHOOSING
In Pretzel, a conversation begins if and only if both parties want to connect. Indicate who you want to talk with by simply swiping right on the photo when browsing. When you connect, we reveal who is helping whom.
