    "I don't like this app at all. It need too many sensitive permissions on my phone, and sends way too many notifications. The interface to post a "story" is someone confusing. Browsing for other peoples posts can be entertaining, but for me it's not worth it."

    "I wouldn't really recommend a social media app for use when you are bored, I prefer to play games or to chat with a friend privately, and Twitter is not really designed for private communication."

    "Learning a foreign lanuage while you play a game sounds like an effective technique to me. I believe the best teachers have often figured out ways to make learning fun, and this app uses that idea as well."
