    "I enjoy using this app for maintaining long distance relationships as it keeps everyone connected abroad, with its fun quizzes which instills a sense of camaraderie and a sense of teamwork and purpose among each other. It does have the occasional ad and bug, with freezing and intrusive ads once in a while, but I still had fun getting to know the ones I care about even more deeply."

    "When you're living far away from people you love, FaceTime will make you feel like you're right there. I can't get enough of this for chatting with the people I wish I was with. Plus it's really great to mess with people when they're not expecting FaceTime. Just woke up? Great bed head! Don't have your makeup on yet? You look beautiful anyway! No, really. FaceTime is the best of the best - you don't need any other apps to help your long distance relationship!"
