Hello Hunters! Available today, the new pen pal app ‘SLOWLY’ lets users write and receive letters from anywhere in the world. In the era of instant messaging, we hope to provide a platform and connect users who want to share their passion at a slower, but better pace – one letter at a time. Please enjoy!

@kevin_wong1 Love the app! Well designed, beautifully eloquent. Could I write about it for my site? (https://theannotation.com)? Despite that, I really do agree with the idea of slow communication. In this fast paced world it's extremely nice to be able to just slow down... and make conversations worth it again. Also: You may want to touch this up ;) : https://goo.gl/photos/r9XPnhAVRH...

Such a lovely idea. Now I just have to wait two days and hope my pen pal in Australia will reply :) Congrats to Kevin for building such a great app!

@dylan36032 Thank you very much! Almost cried when reading your comment. ; )

I've long regretted not keeping in touch with pen pals, as the art of letter-writing and slow thought has been fading in recent years. You've wonderfully captured the joyful moments of having a pen pal in these features; letters taking longer to arrive based on their location is really clever!

@stevenjmesser Thanks Steve!

@kevin_wong1 Very interesting. I was wondering about creating something similar 2 days ago. I visioned it in terms of a chatbot, right there in Facebook messenger. No need to download any application, letters will be delivered on Facebook messenger itself. We at http://morph.ai can expose your service as a chatbot for you.

@ishanjain_t chatbot idea is quite interesting, but the message delivery can be delayed?
Ishan Jain@ishanjain_t
@kevin_wong1 It sure can be delayed. Can you send an email to ishan@morph.ai? We can talk the specifics there.
