Hong Kong – Why Interactive today is pleased to announce the release and immediate availability of Slowly 1.0, their new pen pal app developed for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch devices. 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.
Bringing the traditional pen pal experience to smartphones, the app was created for those who yearn for meaningful connections with others. Users are matched in pairs based on common interests and language. Just like a real letter, delivery time depends on geo-locations and distance between pen pals – users are therefore encouraged to take the time in writing and share their thoughts freely. Creating a profile is very simple: users will be asked to represent themselves by pick an avatar icon and a nickname, ensuring that content of the letters is always the focus of communication.
Another feature on Slowly is the ability to collect stamps from around the world: users start with the stamp of their current location; they can then unlock new ones through meeting pen pals from other countries or by travelling. Currently there are already more than 100 fun and unique stamps awaiting for users to discover – and the collection is still expanding with new stamps constantly being added!
