YongoPal provides the opportunity to explore the world and immerse yourself in new cultural experiences through your iPhone, with new friends serving as your local guides.
In its first iteration, the application takes the form of a structured pen-pal experience built around mission-prompted photo and text based interactions. It emphasizes one-on-one interactions between people of similar ages in different parts of the world.
