    This app is ok

    This app is perfectly fine sep for... girls/guys start making fun of other raise. Also I feel like you should kinda lower down the bananas for which gender we rather talk to. I decided to talk to all males, but it only gave me 10m, which is fine but I decided to talk to someone and as soon as we where done talking it said it was out of time. I feel like it should only give us time when we are not talking to someone and just waiting. Also another, I sometimes send moments, but some guys who are like 18+ text me “hey sexy”. Yes I would ignore them but then they start to text me more and more. Also I feel like we should customize which ages we shall talk to you, I am 13 and I get 18+ guys. Also when I was scramming around on here, there are some people who are faking their ages and turn out to be like 40-50 and higher. Also anytime when someone is being respectful to me and others and being very sexual, I would block them, and nothing would happened. Also last and more least this app would show exactly where I live and what town, stead of what country I live in, this makes me feel very uncomfortable and unsafe. Boy other than that this app is pretty cool and sometimes fun, I have met some people that is very trust worthy and still talk to them this day. Of and sorry I forgot I think that we should be able to change our nick names on this app when ever we want stead of waiting for 50 days. Now I’m done :)

    Falsely Banned!!!!

    Hi monkey developers so I hope you get to read this because I am a long time user of monkey and a huge fan. I love the app and all the new features but incidentally I have been falsely banned and I am very upset on the matter, I have never broken any monkey rules or done anything appropriate, I refused to show some girl my private and she said she will report me if I don’t and I still refused and I come back an hour later to my monkey only to be banned, I am very upset and flustered, please take note of this complaint and unban me, it would be greatly appreciated. It is not fair to me a completely innocent person to get banned for something I have no control over and to be falsely banned at that.

    😬🤷🏽‍♂️

    This app is good for what it is or how much it tells you about the app,,,but the only thing I would change is ,”me not having to spend my “hard work”🤣😭 bananas 🍌 just to change what gender I want to talk to”,but there isn’t any other problem for me “REPLY BACK IF U CAN CHANGE THE WAY WE HAVE TO SPEND OUR BANANAS 🍌 JUST TO CHANGE WHAT GENDER I WANT TO TALK TO”😬,,,this app IS GOOD,,,but if u hate people ,then u might don’t want to download this app o an aka SOME PEOPLE ON THIS APP IS RUBE,RACIST,and some of them people Will sexually harass you,,,,,,,”THIS APP IS FOR PEOPLE WHO DONT CARE WHAT PEOPLE SAY ABOUT U AN FOR THE PHONE WHO ARE BASICALLY PARTY ANIMALS🤪🤘🏽,O AN LOOKING FOR SOME DISTANCE RELATIONSHIP OR A NEAR BY RELATIONSHIP🤷🏽‍♂️🥰,,,,o an another aka ,,,this app should really be only for 18+ even tho I’m not 18+...anyways this app is inappropriate because people lie about their age an it’s inappropriate because their this old man lying 🤥 about their age,,there is 40-80 years old men on here lurking around.,,the last thing I am goin to say is “BE SAFE AN HAVE LOTS OF FUN AND DONT LIE ABOUT YOUR AGE”byeee🤦🏽‍♂️💀

    Time out

    This new update is all fine but I don’t appreciate how you have to wait 10 minutes to match with someone just because they aren’t matching with people. I understand you all want people to talk with others more but honestly... you’re only hurting the app, no ones going to wait they’re just going to get on another app and forget about monkey for maybe even hours because they’re time and mind is occupied with other things. And if you all think that people are sitting on the app for 10 minutes just to get another 10 minutes time out because they don’t accept 4 people then you all are mistaken. I seriously believe that you all need to rethink your approach on making people match more. Time is precious and no one want to waste their precious time waiting 10 minutes to match with people their probably not even goin to hold a conversation with. Maybe just minimize it to 1 minute, 10 minutes is a bit excessive. Please save everyone some time a fix this!

    Good idea, but needs more filters

    This app generally has a good idea, but when I downloaded it at first I thought it had the vibe of an app for 14-18 year olds to hang out on. I’m currently 17, which means I should be getting matches with people 16,17, or 18, but this never happens. I almost always get paired with someone that is 13/14 or 20+. The developers of this app should implement an age range so that you can only get matched with people in your set range, even if it takes longer to find someone. Second, using the girl filter does nothing because most of the time a couple minutes go by with nothing and then a guy pops up. This filter should only allow girls to pop up as that’s why I chose it. Third, I would like to talk about the racism in this app. I have witnessed other white guys call black girls all kinds of slurs. I have also connected with older black girls and been called a “cracker” or “white trash.” The users of this app for both races get frustrated when someone of the opposite race pops up so they use slurr words. A filter for the race you want to talk to should be implemented to stop all of these racists comments.

    OKAY

    This app is quite good for what it is. I enjoy meeting new people online and seeing all the moments that others also. So the main functions of the app work as intended. There are only 2 reasons this doesn’t get a five. 1 the slang is annoying and trying to appeal to the young demographic but this is mostly irrelevant and does not distract from the core functions of the app. 2 the Merch shop. Almost everything is out of stock all the time. When they promote sales of the merch the app freezes even when mobile data and WiFi have full bars. Then finally after a few minutes when it unfreezes everything is sold out. I waited three days to buy a pop Socket during the recent merch drops (which doesn’t count all the days of waiting to save up bananas) and by luck I got one but I doubt it will ship. Overall the app is good for it’s function but the slang is annoying and the merch store is flawed.

    Monkey

    So lately I've been loving the new app called monkey. When I first joined the app it seemed to be going just fine until people become bullies and they bully you. Also there have been inappropriate things that I've seen which I don't want to. Older men are coming on this app and they're showing disgusting things that I don't wanna see at all. And for some odd reason I'm a young and mature teenager but some how I've been getting old men and they're way too old for me which makes the app seem very very less fun and more disturbing. It was so weird because I've been on the app and it was going good all until I've been getting older guys all of a sudden. Like they just started to appear out of nowhere. But all I'm saying is that monkey needs to have new rules or fixes to the apps so younger kids or teenagers don't have to see things they don't wanna. Also that the younger teens or kids don't have to talk to older people when they're so young. So monkey needs to change and fix their app.

    Amazing app but ..

    I love this app honestly. I always go on this app when I’m bored or want a good conversation with people my age or a good laugh. It use to be a good app where young people 14 through 18 would come and meet people there age and make new friends but I feel that older people started to ruin this app for us and bring up the age limit. Having 14 years olds talk to grown people is unacceptable and dangerous. Also, many people are racist on this app. I know freedom of speech and believing what they believe in and you can’t change that but it comes to the point where it comes disrespectful and nasty. Young people are on this app and don’t need to come across someone saying racist and harmful things that can make them upset and feel like different is a bad thing. There has to be an app where young people can make new friends and feel free to be themselves.

    My Experiences/Opinions On Our Safety

    Well, I am officially about to delete Monkey I suggest they get rid of it,It's not worth it tons of guys played with my emotions and it's very very hurtful. I do not appreciate it AT ALL! All they want is sex sex sex!! I'm really not that type of person there are grown men on there --some of whom could be predators and are targeting young girls it's definitely not right. They could most likely get in trouble; something has to be done about this it's not safe. People can be whoever they wanna be behind a keyboard, you don't know who you're talking to. Everything was absolutely horrible. I didn't deserve what was done and/or said to me. They need to investigate if they decide to keep it, then they need to make sure that there is NO sexual or explicit activity for BOTH GENDERS ! Some females are exposing themselves before any guy can and the guys are seeking after naked pics of a female's body. I just spoke my honest opinions as well as my experiences. 🙂 I don't mean any harm but just want us as young adults to PLEASE BE CAREFUL ❗️❕

    🚨🚨 NEW UPDATE !!

    Honestly this app used to be so fun ! Ever since the new update recently this app is just an absolute waste of time. You shouldn’t have to be charged bananas just because of your gender preference (especially for the LGBTQ+ community). Some advice (for further use of the Monkey app by current users), I could suggest y’all would change that back to before we were charged for almost EVERYTHING on the app. Also y’all could restock everything in the merch store currently sold out. Two more big issues, one being all the little kids. There should be age limit from 14+ due to the fact that many users tend to flash or display inappropriate body parts that young kids should not be exposed to. The last big issue is users being falsely banned due to other users having the ability to press the report button. I would really appreciate it if you took all of this into consideration in the next update. Please get back to me when you can and thanks you !

    The app is not bad but it needs changes

    So number 1. I didn’t see nobody say this but I think we should be able to do more then 2p screens and make it were you can choose 1 , 2 , 3 ,4 screens because three of my friends want to be doing it but then we can’t and we feel bad for the other person ok so know number 2. That like making us choose to be gay or straight because it free to be gay or bi or lesbian but you guys are making us pay bananas with and it be a lot of bananas and a little bit of time . 3 but besides those two I really love this app I got a lot of my friends to get it and we be being on it together but we can’t do like 3 or 4 so we only do two but I might a lot of nice people and a lot of mean people but that not you guys fault great app but fix those things thanks if you do it .

    Bullying and racism

    When I joined this app I really enjoyed it. It was weird, fun, and quick. Every 10 seconds you talk to a random person from anywhere, which in my opinion is fascinating. But the fact that I have been called ni**a and asked, “why are you black” “why are you so black” or they just say ”ew” to me is upsetting. And the fact THAT THEY WERE ALL WHITE PEOPLE CALLING ME THE N WORD AS AN INSULT is saddening. This app made me realize how many people are racist when there is not discernible consequence. I was not able to report them because they exit the app so they don’t get reported. I’ve been shown nudes too. From 24 year olds to 14 year olds. I don’t know how you guys would be able to help or fix this problem in the app but this is mainly a warning for people who are getting the app. Thank you for reading, please take caution when you are downloading this type of stuff.

    Trash update

    This app used to be fun. I used to go to this app when i have nothing to do. Now i have to pay to get 10 min with a guaranteed female. What a scam. I’d rather have gender priority over gender gaurentee. Like I’m fine with talking to dudes but that’s when i get them once every 5 or so. No once in a blue moon a girl will pop up. It’s so bad. Guys aren’t as friendly to other guys on this app and way more awkward like I’m just trying to have chill convos. Not awkward ones with random dudes. And the app is all based around bananas. Like the banana cost to the experience you used is so not worth it. Basically if i logged in for 10 days on a row only then could i guarantee a 10 min convo with a girl how lame. Not only that but your counter would probably be oh you could post memories. But I’m really self conscious about myself and i don’t wanna post stuff just so i Can ft someone. And final point is just the way it used to be set up was so much nicer and cleaner.

    Monkey flaw

    I like monkey but the system has a major flaw it’s the banned system of the app it causes to many innocent people like me to get banned because someone doesn’t like us when the system should send the account to a group that goes and looks at the account and says hey this person hasn’t done anything inappropriate so he won’t be banned or hey this person is doing something that is not ok and should be banned not oh press a button and a person is instantly banned this is a really bad flaw that should be fixed as soon as possible in order to keep monkey fun because no other app has a banned system like that any app especially the big ones go and investigate the account before they approve an account as banned or not banned

    Banned for what?

    I don’t know if I got banned from monkey , because usually when you’re banned from monkey it will say “(banned)” next to your name as well as others but it don’t say that next to mine or the people I talk to. The people that Be answering my calls do very inappropriate sexual stuff like every person I call is showing their private parts and I’m convinced that I’m banned but I don’t know how and why because I didn’t do anything wrong nor it didn’t tell me that I’m banned or the people that I talk to. monkey I’m begging you in the next update you should lift everyone ban and let them start of fresh and after they get banned again it’s OVER.😊(I love the app btw but since I don’t know if I’m banned or not I’m giving you 5.5 star rating, until next time👋
