Amazing. Just, amazing.
I’ve had this app for over two years now, and I haven’t thought to write a review until now. It has so many amazing books, some have been published as actual books, some just written for fun. You can completely enjoy it with some short adds or you can pay for premium and get no adds and a few different features. I’ve had it for so long, and sadly can’t do premium, even though it is pretty inexpensive; but it’s still an amazing experience. There are also some stories that you have to use coins for, and you can buy coins or get three a day by watching videos, and each chapter is three coins. There are so many more books that are completely free though, so paying isn’t required at all. I also love having the comments on each paragraph of the story and being able to share my thoughts and read others opinions on the books. The one and only complaint that I have is that there isn’t a feature to like a comment on a book. I’ve seen a few people who have the same problem, we don’t want to comment on something, we just want to let them know that their comment made us laugh. It’s a very small complaint though, and it doesn’t affect the experience on Wattpad. All in all, this app is great for exploring books, and writing as well. It’s very easy write and publish chapters and books on the app. It’s perfect for writers who just want to have some fun or who want to explore an interest in writing. Would 100% recommend this to all book lovers and writers.

Love this app, but...
This is an awesome app to read stories and fanfics, but the one thing at the moment that I don’t like is the new limit to read offline without premium. I liked how before you could read any story offline, but you couldn’t update the new chapter, but it’s better then having a limite on stories to read and sometimes get to read the story if they did update a new chapter without internet. I would like it if wattpad were to take away the limitation on offline stories, for its better that way and I can read more when I’m on a business trip or on an airplane I can read lots of stories without limitations. I have had this app for maybe 2 years and I never had a complaint, but with the limited offline stories it had caused me some troubles, also once I was in a business trip and I went to read and there was no internet connection or anything. But I had my offline books and one of them updated, though the thing was I couldn’t read it and it told me I have to have an internet connection to upload the new chapter, which irritated me cause this was supposed to be an offline story that I can read without anything and after that I couldn’t read until 2 hours later once I got internet. In a couple of day I will be traveling and some parts of the place that I’m going does not have internet connection, but I want to still be able to read, but I can’t afford premium so I’m just asking please get rid of the limited offline books they’re troublesome.

curious? read this
alright, i’ve had this app since 2013 and let me start this review by saying it’s definitely not the same as the old version. the changes aren’t too bad, once you get used to the adds that pop up every so often when you’re reading a story. they can get annoying and more consistent the longer you read, but again, you get used to them after a while. if not, just pay for premium (i actually wouldn’t recommend getting premium unless you’re REALLY bothered by the adds). overall this app is great. if you want to write a story, it’s not hard trying to figure out what specific buttons you’ve got to press in order to pick your story’s cover, select tags, add a new chapter and so on. i do have to warn you though, the app is known to crash when you’re in the middle of writing a chapter and deleting all of that progress you made, so be careful with that. getting your story views isn’t that difficult either, unless you’re a new author but even then your story will eventually get viewers. wattpad’s also a great app to make friends and find mutuals too. over the years i’ve met a lot of nice people, and gotten myself more than a lot of followers. you don’t need followers though, you can simply use wattpad to read, find friends, or do your own thing. it doesn’t matter if you’re trying to find a story of a specific fandom/an original story, wattpad’s perfect to pass time. so yes, i recommend it, regardless of the few problems it has occasionally.

best fan fiction app
i use wattpad to read fanfics and then never disappoint me. i have had this app for over a year now and i love it. i read a story almost every night before i go to bed. another factor i would like to mention is that it has grown my love for reading. before i had wattpad i didn’t read at all. now that i got it i have started to gain a soft spot for reading and i can read much faster. yes there are ads but only after every so chapters. Therefore, it doesn’t effect your reading time really. like it’s not right in the middle of a chapter when an ad shows up. neither are they long ads. i think the longest an ad was that i had was about 40seconds which is a nice amount to time. and if you never had wattpad before then i would like to mention that there isn’t only fanfics. there are also really cool stories with endless categories. they scare from fluff to romance(they go further than that but young people don’t need to know that). and one last cool thing about the app is that all the stories are written by random people. they aren’t written by people like Will Hobbs or Mr. O’Brien(both famous authors) but they are written by a person that barely anyone know. and if you want to you can wright a story too. i myself haven’t written one but that is only because i don’t want to wright i’m more of a reader but anyway i think you should get this app. but just be ready for some really funny people on the comments of stories lol.

I’m in love with Wattpad but there is a problem...
I love Wattpad so, so, so much and am even an author of a couple of books. I’ve been on this app for like four years now and it has made my life so much better and enjoyable. I love how in the library you can have as much books as you want and being able to comment on stories and to message authors and all the other stuff. Each update of Wattpad was better than be next. I love the most recent update because it makes everything look so organized but.... I have a concern. You see, before this update, I was able to access any book easily offline as long as it was in my library. But now, the new update only allows to have two books offline and it seems sort of unfair to me. I can still read but I don’t feel that much joy as I used to feel. To have more offline books, you have to have the premium plan and sadly, I cannot afford that as I already have to much things to take care up. With this review, I plead that you try to fix Wattpad as to get rid of only having two boos offline without premium to change so that Wattpad users are able to read any book on their library offline and to be able to see their updates. This is the concern I have to address. I hope someone sees this and is able to take my concern into consideration and fix Wattpad. For feedback from others, this pretty much is similar to what most of the Wattpad users that I know said when I asked them.

It’s my home. 🧡
I got this app just about 2 years ago. And the way I found it was, I had broken my phone, and just gotten into the mcyt fandom, I had a kindle so I used that and searched ‘dnf’ and I found Wattpad. I had no idea what it was at the time, but when I started reading it, I couldn’t stop. I stayed up all night and the rest of the next day reading that story. When it ended I was sad. I wanted to read more stories like that. After a month I got my phone fixed and went onto the web. I searched Wattpad, and found this whole website full of stories. I spent hours upon days on that website. Only to find out you can download it. So of course I downloaded it. I made a account, and got to reading. Yeah, it might just be an app with books to someone. But to me, it’s my get away, my fantasy world, my home. Now, Wattpad is my most used app on my phone. I’m on their for about 12 hours a week. (I just checked my screen time for the past 7 days.... it said 12h and 21m for Wattpad) I’ve read over hundreds of stories, and don’t plan to stop anytime soon. And the best part about the app, is that the stories are from small authors, who had this idea for a story and decided to share it. And they decided to share it with me. So I guess, if you ask me if this app is any good, I’ll say “No. It’s the best.” (That was so friggen cheezy-) Moral of the story: Get it if your bored. | I FRICKEN LOVE YOU WATTPAD! MARRY MEEEEE!!!! 🧡🧡🧡

No more offline readings, why?!?!?!?
I have been reading in and fan of Wattpad for 4-5 years now and I have seen them go through major changes, some changes are fine with me but the current change is just upsetting. The moment I woke up in the morning and I went to check on Wattpad for updates in my library, but only to see that now we all have to pay to read offline which was shocking and terrifying to me. I feel like I won’t be able to be able to read anymore interesting stories written or shared by others for the sake of their passion or entertainment (especially while I am going to school using underground transportation). I feel like not being able to read some of our books offline is just a nightmare!!! I understand why Wattpad did the coin system and the ads, but getting rid of the offline reading is just a nightmare! Although, I also read when I have Wi-Fi at home and school and there would be ads which I don’t mind, but now when I am offline I won’t be able to access to my favorites while traveling underground (literally no service) then what? Maybe I should quit Wattpad for a long while and just focus on school which is getting more harder and stressful. Mind you, Wattpad is my source of stress reliever and happy times (plus it was my favorite reading app out of all the others I have experienced with), but now I will just steer clear from Wattpad. Who knows? I might just be back soon or later?

Beautiful. Perfect
I love this app. Nobody in my family or friend group besides my cousin is in the same fandoms as I’m in (Percy Jackson), so it’s awesome to find people who like the same things I do! You can role play as your favorite characters if you find the right people, and write and read stories. I would recommend @_-TheOfficials-_ for Percy Jackson fans who would like to roleplay as their favorite character. Very few problems, although I would like more space for offline books. Like maybe 10 spaces. Writing is very simple, I do it on my phone with no problems. Reading is even simpler, just search what you want, and you’ll find plenty. Be careful with your email, I had problems with getting it activated so I could comment and follow and favorite things. It worked out in the end though! Just watch out for kids, 13 is the minimum age, not 17. And there’s little that parents can do about removing an account if the child is over 13 and not causing any problems. Parents, your best bet is to let your kid do his/her thing. Chances are, he/she is on here because nobody they know likes what they like. Just make sure they are not sharing personal information or anything, that’s a bad thing on ANY public site, not just Wattpad. But overall, this app is good for kids who love to read and write stories about their favorite books and movies, or anything in general.

One teensy problem.
Off the bat, the app is amazing. I’ve had it for three years. Over the years, I’ve read amazing books and some that weren’t so amazing. I met some amazing authors and a few friends I didn’t know I would meet. It was an online library and hang out that I never knew I actually needed. My friends and I have all collaborated on stories or written each other nice messages on our message board. We all got to answer and write them, except me. I since then deleted the app and haven’t re-downloaded it until a few months back to see if I would get the email to verify my account and allow me to post messages or reply to messages on my board. Nothing. I tried changing my email to see if it was wrong or going to the help page the creators so kindly offered. I checked everything, did everything the help said. Still nothing. This has been going on for two months. TWO MONTHS and still nothing. I don’t understand if it’s just me or if others have experienced this. It’s getting very annoying to the point where I might cry of frustration because of how infuriating this gets. I am sick and tired of waiting and trying and repeating a whole cycle I shouldn’t have to repeat if it was that simple to fix a posible bug. Again, I don’t know if others experienced this or if it’s just me but I’m exhausted from waiting around almost an hour to see if the email got sent or not. Please fix this or at least read this review and say something to make me feel better.

Love the app, two suggestions though
I love this app so much. I use it daily, and have written somethings on it as well. Thought, I have a few suggestions. 1) A previous book library. We’re readers can look and see what books they have previously voted on. Therefore the chance of accidentally exiting out of a book without saving it to your library and then losing it decreases. you can have this be sorted from the chapter they have voted on. If a reader has voted on multiple chapters from the same book, the book would be listed and then the chapters voted on would be under when clicked on the said book. 2) if a reader has a book in their library that will be going to premium Wattpad (The paid side), they should get a weeks, if not months notice are they going to premium. Therefore if they are not paying for premium Wattpad, they can still read the book before it going and becoming a paid story. it gives the chance for readers who have read a book and really like it to read said book. That goes for books that readers are reading at the moment and go premium, they should also get a warning therefore if they don’t wake up one day and cannot finish reading the book that they’ve been reading as it’s now paid. other than those two suggestions, I absolutely love this app, and will forever keep using it.

Love it! Only one problem
I’ve had this app coming up two years, and it has definitely grown my love for reading. This is the first app I open when I wake up and the last one I open before I go to bed. I’ve probably read over 100 books, and I have over 12 in my library. Wattpad is probably my favorite app I have on my phone. However, I do find one thing troubling. As most people who have the app are aware of, if you do not save a book to your library, once you exit it out of it it is most likely lost forever. Now, I know this is probably not a big problem for people who know the title and other things about the book, but for people who sometimes choose a book just based on the description and do not look at the title (me), this poses an issue sometimes. I was reading a wonderful book a couple days ago, and I had gotten about 30 chapters in. I guess I had gotten so absorbed in the story that I had forgotten to save it to my library. Well, my family and I had traveled into the country, so we had no internet. When I opened up the app, a notification popped up that i needed WiFi to continue reading. I pressed dismiss. Long story short, it exited out of the book, and I can’t find it. I think it would be really helpful to have an option to look at a recently opened or recently looked at page where books that you had previously read but hadn’t been saved could be seen. This would be EXTREMELY helpful! Other than that, LOVE the app!

Excluding tags
I love this app but I have some suggestions/wishes and I really hope you’ll consider them. 1. I really wish there was a way to exclude certain tags when searching and make it so the search results exclude stories with those tags. For example, when reading fanfics there are certain pairings I don’t like but are popular for some people and a bunch show up in the search results even though I have no interest in them. Another example is when I’m searching for a specific type of story like an entertainment or transmigration setting and don’t want GL or BL and a bunch show up and it takes forever to scroll through them or when I am looking for a BL and a bunch of GL show up and vice versa. 2. I wish there wasn’t a limit to the reading lists you can make. 3. I wish there was a way to save or favorite other users reading lists. 4. I wish there was a way to save favorite tags(with no limit on how many you can save) and when a new story is published with that tag it shows up on your home page or you get a notification. And you would be able to choose what languages that have those tags show up. For example, I read Spanish and English so if there are new stories with the tags I favorite in either languages they would both show up. I really hope you’ll consider my suggestions.

My honest opinion about wattpad
I love wattpad, I’ve written stories, I’ve read good stories but the thing I can’t stand is wattpad moving things around, I use to be able to be able to just click on one of the bottom thing to either my library or my account but now I got to click a different button to get to my account? Why is wattpad moving things, adding/taking arm way things so often? They moved it with my library is now in the middle of my screen out of the group and it’s throwing my off every single time. Like I’m clicking on them trying to get onto my account and then I’m just like how the flip go I get on my account before I clicked a different button before I finally got on my account. I think this was new since it only appeared like that today so I’m not sure if it’s permanent but please stop doing that to us wattpad users, it annoys me at the least even if the others aren’t bothered a whole lot. I liked it how it use to be not like how it keeps changing every time I take my eyes off it for a second. Don’t get me wrong I still love wattpad, but with the changes it keeps going through annoys me and irritates me. So please stop with moving things around on wattpad, it only makes things harder to find depending on what it is we are looking for, like checking our account or something.

Offline and ads is a pain
I will forever love this app because this is what got me to fall in love with reading books but I can’t help but to hate the new updates. The whole offline thing was (not trying to be mean) stupid to do. The fact that I’m limited to two books for the offline mode when i have no internet is crazy. I loved when we can still read all the books we had in our library without internet. I really wish y’all can get rid of it because that’s very annoying. The ads are way too long. Some ads are 5 seconds before you can skip but most ads are like almost 2MINS LONG!!! And sometimes I feel that the ads are now popping up after every other chapter. I don’t mind ads but it’s too much after awhile especially when I’m really getting into a book. I understand you guys made a premium thing for people to get rid of the ads and have more offline books but it’s not worth the $5.99 when you can just go back to the original way y’all had it. I feel like every update y’all make is getting worst and I feel bad for saying this but I’m actually not reading off of here as much which kills me cause I really do love this app. But, if y’all keep making this an ad competition and keep the whole offline thing you might lose a reader off of this app. Hopefully y’all will read our complaints and keep it under consideration

Money money money
I use to love Wattpad. I got on it everyday to read for the last 5 years. Recently there have been some awful updates that makes the app a headache to deal with. I can handle the adds. I understand that’s how free apps make money. I was upset about the coin thing and having to pay to finish reading some of my favorite stories. Though I do understand why some authors would want to get paid for writing their books, so I looked past it and continued using this app because I loved it so much. But now we have to pay to read offline?! That’s outrageous!! I fear this app is all about making a profit out of everything now! It’s not about the people’s enjoyment anymore. You could get premium and have all of that go away but, you guessed it, it costs money! More and more people are dropping this app because of these awful changes being made. And I’m fed up with opening the app and seeing more things we have to pay for. What’s next? We have to pay to write our own stories? I’m lucky that I have service at my house, but some people aren’t so lucky. I’m sorry to those people, and to those who uses reading as an escape to what they’re going through. I will continue using this app because there still are some good books I would like to read, but I’m not nearly as in love with this app as I was 5 years ago.

Amazing app!!!
This app has everything for a reader or writers needs!! You can write all your stories, with as many chapters as you want!! You can also create your own cover for your book as well. The writing portion of the app is very simple to use. With the ability to add videos or pictures at the top of each chapter, you can give the readers a better picture of your story, and they have the tools you see on any writing software. From which side you want to write on, to italics, bold, or underlined. For the readers, there are many genres to choose from!! Fantasy, Fanfiction, etc. it your choice. you can also change the font style, color of the page and, size of the font for you various needs. You also have a personal library that no one can see except you! So you can organize your books in any way, but, when you read a book it appears at the top of your library as your recently read. You can also make reading lists on your profile for others to enjoy. If a book isn’t finished writing, the notifications for when the author updated the book, are straight forward, they tell you when they updated and what chapter they updated, so you don’t have to look or reread to make sure your not reading the same chapter twice. I love this app, and I hope if you haven’t tried it, you should!!!

Amazing app, but one thing...
Okay, so I been on Wattpad maybe a year or so and I love it really. My stories are getting noticed, votes, reads and comments are amazing on them. There’s just one problem and I’m not sure if it’s a glitch on the app or something wrong on my end. But, I ended up asking my readers how they came upon my book and they said that it was number one on one of the tags. I was excited that my book was ranked (first book of mine that was) so I went to the tag to see if my story showed up and to my surprise it didn’t. I was confused as to why, so I made another account and did the same thing going to the tag and my story showed up. I clicked on it and say all my rankings on it. I was confused as to why none of the rankings show up when I’m on my actually account. Instead it just shows how many parts I have and nothing else after that. I’m not sure why that happens and I honestly don’t like going on another account to see my rankings when I should be able to see it on my account. I hope y’all can help with that since I’m really confused and would love to see my own rankings. Also, I would love to know if your book can show up whenever you search in that particular tag or it’ll only show on other people accounts. I hope y’all read this and help me out as soon as possible. Thank you....

Wattpad: Why Change is Needed
Wattpad has been on every handheld device I’ve owned since I created an account five years ago. I can honestly say that this app was my favorite app hands down until recently. Yes, I still love and use Wattpad but I don’t spend nearly as much time reading on there as I used to. This is due to the ads and the update with premium accounts. I don’t mind ads at all as that is how apps are kept free but it seems like I get an ad after every single chapter and I’m constantly asked to go premium. With the change of the logo recently as well, I feel Wattpad is in a different place than it was when I joined 5 years ago but not in a good way. We need to move forward but not so much so that it becomes an entirely different thing. There have always been ads and I don’t expect ads to be wiped out completely but it is ridiculous how often they pop up, I also find it quite obnoxious that I am asked to go premium every single time I open the app. It is safe to say that Wattpad has become more of a money making operation than one that values its writers and readers. I don’t think it is much to ask to reduce the amount of ads a little bit and try to make the app about the people using it again. I’m still going to use this app but I have resorted to other FanFiction websites and apps as it is not nearly as enjoyable as it used to be. I do hope you can take both our opinions into consideration more directly. Thank you.

Love Wattpad but I’m disappointed
I love this app and I have been on Wattpad for many years and the fact that it was a free reading app was what attracted me but now after years I’ve been on this app and then like I go to read the story that I love then I realize that the chapters are unavailable because I have to pay for them now because apparently they have paid stories. You know that wasn’t like too much of a big deal for me but if I have been reading this book since the author came out with it and now I’m almost done with the book but then I realize that I have to pay for it, I have a problem with that but the thing that really makes me mad what happened was when Wattpad started having premium so now I have to pay to remove ads that I didn’t even have before and now I have a limit to how many books I can read offline when I used to be able to use read off-line books without having to pay for it to download it you know not everybody can afford to have Wattpad premium like who wants to pay for premium on app that was initially supposed to be 100% free in the first place. Wattpad used to be free honey I’m not going to buy a Wattpad premium account I don’t have enough money for that, the main reason I started a Wattpad account years ago was so I could read and create for free😑👎🏾

great, except...
I always look forward to going to wattpad every day to read and write. I currently have a book published and another one in the works. This app is great, except for one thing. I don’t know if it is a glitch or if it is supposed to happen, but everyone’s message board posts blow up my notifications. At first I didn’t mind it, thinking it was just a glitch and in the next few days it would be fixed and everything would go back to normal. But now, I think it’s been doing this for maybe a month (I actually don’t really know). All the message board notifications have been preventing me from seeing comments and votes on my actual story and updates from my favorite stories. This really bothers me. I put a new story out about three weeks ago, and it has a very low number of votes and comments compared to my other story. I honestly don’t know if it is all the message board notifications or if everybody is less active because school has started again. Even I have ignored all of my notifications some days because I didn’t want to go through the thousands of notifications just from people posting on their own message boards. So I’m wondering if other people are doing the same as me and ignoring it overall, leading them to not reading and commenting as they used to... I’m definitely not saying I’m thirsty for votes, but this even prevents me from reading. Thank you for reading, I hope it made sense...!

Love this app, just a little bug with the new dark mode.
So, I absolutely love this app and how great it is at letting you create your own stories while being free and open to any topic a writer wants to write. You can also read so many stories that people make and it lets people actually pay writers so they can make a living. Plus, you can find almost any genre in this app from horror to fantasy to Non-Fiction! You can also write books that are showed to certain people of different ages and has a Mature rating so little kids don’t accidentally go on inappropriate stuff. It is good for all ages and makes sure there isn’t bad stuff in a book and is overall fun to look through and to connect to people and how they write. It also helps you improve in writing and planning out stories. There’s just one small bug with the dark mode and writing. Sometimes when I write the color of the text goes back to black, and I can’t see it which makes it difficult to keep my writing flow. It of course disappears when I click out and go back in but if you could fix this it would be great! Oh, and another thing, I think it would be really cool if we could share stories and write them with other accounts. It would be easier than a google doc and it would be a lot more fun!

Why are there ads at the bottom of the screen?
I’m only rating it so low because of the ads on the bottom of the screen… This company DOES NOT listen to the readers and it annoying. How hard is it to just listen to the people who are on the app everyday and supporting them! I’m sure you guys have already seen the dislike on having the ads at the bottom of the screen while people are reading. I had them for a while maybe a month or so ago and then they went away and I was happy that Wattpad took in the concerns of the readers seriously but they are back again… I’m sure myself including others would appreciate if Wattpad as a company would listen to the people who go on their app everyday. We do not like the ads at the bottom of the screen, it spoils reading and it’s annoying. Personally I’m fine ads being in between each chapter. But to have them at the bottom is so obnoxious. I really don’t want to leave this app because I’ve been using it for many years. But Wattpad as a company have problems listening to the consumers and their concerns and honestly that not very good if you want people to still use your app. All I’m asking is for Wattpad to consider listening to the readers and just stick to the ads after the chapters, I’m not the only one who hates this feature. Many have express the dislike of it on Twitter and I have not since Wattpad address the concerns and it’s disappointing. Please reconsider taking away the ads at the bottom of the screen, thank you.

Great update story!
Super creative, and very unexpected formatting but if you really think on it, writing in the storytelling format is just so... Wattpad! I do like the app, it’s a cool place to sate my werewolf/vampire thirst for rom coms. It’s also a great place for new authors. With that comes some challenges for both writers and readers. As a reader there are some stories that might have too many spelling errors, but I don’t really mind those. There are stories that might be more of a rough draft but it’s nice to see creativity in process. Probably the worst thing as reader is to fall in love with a story only to be left on a cliff hanger and never find a landing because the story is never to be finished. Oh well, there are pit falls here and there but you can’t always catch a muse when you need to. The one thing that I know is a problem for writers is that sometimes their stories get stolen which is very heartbreaking for both parties. But this is such an amazing world to share ideas and I truly love a lot of these stories. I know for a fact that some stories take a life of its own and get turned into a book- a big score for the whole community! Anyway, thank you to all creatives who created this app and all the Authors and readers for making this place such a magical place!

Love it
I’ve had this app for over 3 years now and it had really helped me on my journey of writing. I’ve met some amazing people on there and have read just as amazing books. As much as I love this app, recently whenever I click on the app it shows just a blank black screen. No matter how many times I exit and reopen the app or come back a few hours later I can’t get access to the app. It’s been happening for a while and it might just be my phone acting up but my phone isn’t one to have problems like that and is a newer model that should be able to handle wattpad. I have to delete the app and then redownload it just so that I can read a bit off the app, only to keep repeating that every time I want to get on to wattpad. Wattpad used to be my main source of entertainment but now since I can’t access it properly it has slowly gone down my list of things to do on my phone. This might just be a personal problem with my phone or something but I just wanted to share it in case others relate. Overall this app is amazing and has a lovely community. Everyone is normally very funny and if you find the right community of writers and readers you will fit right in. I totally recommend people to get the app and expect to be sucked in by the sheer power of its words and community.

New “Post It Note” Feature Recommended
Okay so I love Wattpad and I’ve been using this app over 2 years and I think it’s great, honestly one of my complaints that I got that has a real solution is the process of writing a new chapter. It just gives you a blank page with nothing new so I’ve thought about a way to kinda “organize” it. Whenever I’m writing something, I take in mental notes, and those mental notes sometimes go away and I forget it so I have to reread what I’ve written in order to try and remember what I’ve thought about earlier. A way to fix this issue is to add a feature where u can write small post it notes (kinda like the one Apple has as gadgets) and stick it on the page where you’re writing. This could be helpful in MANY ways, such as: remembering what POV you’re writing, reminding you to add important scenes later on, introducing a new character, jotting down ideas and thoughts that come to mind etc. This feature could honestly save many lives (including ur app) and make Wattpad more organized and clean. (Of coarse when u publish that same chapter with the notes, the notes wont be visible to the readers and only will be seen by the author when they are in edit mode) Hope u take my ideas into consideration and hope u read this review with an open mind UwU

Too Many Ads
Okay, don’t get me wrong, I understand that to keep Wattpad free for the people who don’t have the money to become a premium member there’s gonna be ads, but the ads that pop up in the middle of every other chapter is VERY annoying. I have been using Wattpad for about 6 years now, it’s by far one of my favorite apps (well it used to be but i’ll get to that in a second): it’s a platform that allows me and others to express our creativity and love for writing and holds some pretty interesting reads that sometimes seem like I should be paying for them... Though at this point, I guess I am with all these ads they throw in my face any chance they get. I was surprised – to say the least – when I opened the app after an update awhile back and seen an ad on the homepage. I was fine with it, of course, because it’s not like it hindered my reading experience, but now the ads have hindered my reading experience. I literally can’t go two chapters without a freaking ad popping up and making me wait 5 seconds until I can move on to the next chapter. It’s ridiculous. Wattpad has obviously fell into the same cycle as every other app that started off ad free. Now they overdo them because all they care about is the money. I still enjoy the app, I just wish they would do something about the ads in the middle of every other chapter, at least make them few and far between. Otherwise, it’s an extremely good app that i’ve enjoyed for many years.

Love it but some ad problems
I’ve been using Wattpad for years now, I love it quite a bit but there is one problem that I’m not sure has been brought up yet. Every once in a while, when trying to skip over chapters using the chapter feature, ads don’t load after several times, when I try to skip over while this is happening the chapters either go back to the one I was at previously or move to the next chapter (usually not the one I wanted to read). It gets even worse as your premium ad won’t ever close unless I close the app, I’ve had it pop up about five times, and every single time I’ve gotten it (usually after another ad that took forever to load) it’s been stuck open, as if the x button at the top doesn’t work even after 30 seconds. I’m not sure if it is a phone problem but I’m using a new phone and still it won’t close, sometimes if ads can’t load, the ad pops up for a second after I skip a chapter manually then the pop up link acts as if I had hit it. I love Wattpad but I’d rather not upgrade to premium just to fix two minor problems that I know can be fixed easily (I hope, I’m no programmer). I hope I’m not the only one facing these problems so that way you can get a better sense of what might be the issue. Thanks for reading!

No writing app better than this! :3 😁❤️
I seriously love this app so much! It organizes your stories, and you get to import pictures for you cover and chapters. It is really easy to control, and you can pick hashtags for your book, genres, etc. In this app not only you can publish a book, but you can also find a book you want to read. About anything you search, results will pop up for it. And, the best part is, it’s free! Also, I just hope you get this app. Considering it isn’t even enough, you should definitely try it out. There may be some flaws that you don’t like, but overall this is really worth it! Maybe if you do want something else, you could try google docs. The only things that I don’t suggest doing on google docs if you were to get the app, is that you can’t keep your stories in folders, but in watt pad you can! It sorts it by stories, and it’s just so easy! By the way, I’m not just hating on google docs because it does and has some things I don’t like, I genuinely love that app too. I just like watt pad a lot, and I think you should get it. And finally, I just want to conclude that watt pad is a great app. It’s worth checking out, even if you don’t prefer it. I hope you enjoyed reading this and this review wasn't for nothing! 👌✌️❤️😁😄

It's a good app
Ok I've had this app for so long and it's really good but I noticed somethings I would change about it. So one on your message board Iy would be nice to edit a post, like if there where typos you would be able to edit it, this would be a good future to have. Another thing regarding the message board, it would be nice to clock people from commenting on your message board (such as rude comments) because having to delete them is getting tiring if there just going to keep posting rude things, so blocking them from ever saying anything rude would be good. Another thing, it would be nice to have the books labeled in your library A-Z I think it would be a good future and easy to find books, like if you didn't remember the full name but the first letter of the book you read. I also would think it would be a nice future that when privately messaging somone you could send them pictures of other things instead of just book links and etc, it's would just be a nice future to share with a friend who's only way of texting you is through Wattpad, other than that it's a wonderful app, love all the books and seeing all the authors who have potential to be an author one day or have there own movie!

What happened
I have been on this app for 4 years this has been my favorite app to read books. I read all different type of books on here and I love them all. But this app has become something that is a money hungry. It now gives you only 2 offline reading books and to have unlimited you have to pay for it, and I don’t appreciate that. This app use to be free period, I don’t care that you there are books on here that cost, because they are good books and deserve the recognition but if your gonna have me pay to have an unlimited supply of unlimited offline books that is insane. I want an unlimited number of books offline because o can’t always be online, and have multiple books to choose from while I’m off is so convenient for me. Now I can’t have that and if I can’t have that I won’t be even able to use the app as much. I don’t have the money to pay for all of that, even if it’s not that much so you need to fix this or don’t. But just know that I can’t use this app that often if I can only have 2 books to read offline. And there is not just me so if people stop using this app as often because of this then this app won’t be as popular. And please don’t get me wrong I love this app there such a variety of people making a different variety of books, it’s great. But you get my point.

I use to love this app... but wth is going on:(
I genuinely loved this app. It was always fun to read cool and interesting stories that completely captivated me and had me not putting my phone down until i figured out what was going to happen next. It was always fun to find new and upcoming authors just trying to find a community to write with. Follow along with their stories and see how they grow. Everything was free to read so the possibilities were endless to find books. And there is so much more that i use to love. But as of late I don’t know what you are doing wattpad but it honestly isn’t helping it’s making things worse. Wattpad doesn’t need to be better it was a great app and an amazing place to be. But whatever the creators are trying to make it now is not working for anyone. I truly and sincerely am sad about the amount of books and fanfics that have been deleted and removed from wattpad in only a days time. Honestly my review should be lower at this point. I hope wattpad that this review tells you to STOP doing whatever you are doing. Stop trying to change the community. Leave us be! We were all fine before you came in deciding what was good for only you nobody agreed with this. PLEASE STOPPP! My review for this app USE to be a 5 stars hands down! And maybe one day if I get the old wattpad back it’ll go back to 5 stars but for now 2 and less is my rating. Don’t download this app right now until wattpad gets it together.

Lots of improvement needed
There are many things I love about this app, but I feel like there are so many things that could and should be better. For instance, the search filters. On websites like A03, you can search for particular genres, word counts, characters, and many more. The search filters feel incomplete. All wattpad has is the amount of chapters (which can be misleading because many people write short stories with many chapters but not a lot of words), when it was updated, and if it’s complete or not. It’s hard to find a particular type of story if you can’t search for things like word count. Another thing is the constant requests to buy premium. I had wattpad before they turned into a greedy money-making company, and it was so much better than the current version. There used to not be constant pop-ups to spend a ridiculous amount of money to go ad free and read a few paid stories. On top of that, they reduced the amount of stories you can read offline. If you had a book loaded previously, you could read it offline and you could do this for many books. Then they reduced that amount to three, then to two. I just wish they didn’t shove the premium ads in your face so much. The search feature is what really needs improvement, though. I want to be able to find stories of a particular type and cannot do that at the moment because of the insufficient searching filters.

The update
Hello I understand that people writing books are getting them published through your company and it’s important to keep funds coming in, but what about the people (like me) who have been reading on watt pad for years now? We have to pay to buy coins now to read stories that used to be free? I thought that the point of it being free is us reading it, loving it, and sharing for other people to discover it? I thought that was the point of this app, when we rate the stories they put into a list of top 50 or so and the best ones can be discovered online by publishers. I’ve been using this app since I was twelve, I am now 18 years old and I’ve been searching for another app to read stories like this but I can’t find any. I believe you’re losing more customers by making the free subscribers pay for reading, it shouldn’t be a thing for free or premium subscribers to pay to read. These aren’t stories made by well known authors these are stories of aspiring authors who need an audience to love their books, review them, and get them out there to the world. I have decided to move on from Wattpad because I can’t afford to pay for it, your customers are more than likely mostly children and young adults who wouldn’t even think about paying to read books when there are other apps that are less desirable but FREE to read and review. I love Wattpad and I hate that this has happened and that’s why I gave a low rating.

The App got worse over the years
I had this app for the first time back in 2014, it was the best thing. It was awesome, no adds, no payments, and no need for premium. I started reading stories that I fell in love with, they were so good that I re read them for all six years that have past. Now they are eliminating stories and author’s profiles without warning. Some of this authors actually put an effort to create the stories, and they just got erased like if they where nothing. The stories I have been reading for six years got erased, their was nothing wrong with them, actually they where awesome. The app says is doing this because they violated contend guidelines and other stupid things, I get it, but the authors didn’t even got a warning to save their stories, that is rude. Some of them actually have putted their effort for years. The age on the app says 17+, and the stories have the option to put if it has mature content . Is stupid that the author get punished for writing stories and not even getting a “flag” telling them that some content that they have is violating the guidelines. I’m an author too, and I won’t put my content (don’t care if my content does not violate their guidelines) in a app that just erases work with no warning, like if it was trash. So, sorry Wattpad, this six years where fun, until now...I pack my bags and head out to look for another place to read and put stories.

Wattpad is Just Getting Worse and Worse
When I first joined Wattpad about 3 to 4 years ago, it was an interesting community to say the least. A small portion of the books that have been written were extraordinary, while most others have been... somewhat questionable. Even with the rather odd books in the mix, the community itself and the app was overall an enjoyable place to be sometimes. All the bonds and friendships that have been forged on Wattpad are ones I cannot forget, nor would I have had the opportunity to gain such friends without Wattpad. However, as time has past, Wattpad has become worse as a whole. It’s like as if the Wattpad community of the past was a book, and the future of Wattpad was a small flame, engulfing it entirely. The books aren’t the issue for me, as I do find it laughable and sometimes enjoyable to see what people could manage to come up with. The real issue for me, is the administration. One by one, I have seen one too many accounts fall and terminated with to unclear reasoning and unjustified manners. One too many times have I seen accounts that had years worth of work put into it vanish in an instant, only for them to make a new account explaining that Wattpad had terminated their account with false pretenses, not explaining the reasoning for their doing. It’s just isn’t right, deleting all these accounts, some of which had books that the authors clearly put their time, heart, and soul into.

An Irritating Issue
Hey Wattpad! I've been using your app for a year now, and I loved it until you removed the one thing that I needed most when using this app; the activity icon. Whenever I forgot to save a book to my library, I would go back and look at my activity to see my comment on the book and add it so I wouldn’t lose it again. It really came in handy, and I did see the post made about trying to make it safer for uncomfortable readers and authors who are afraid of being exposed with their feed. Though, I think it would be better if you let the person see THEIR feed, and nobody else’s. Now, I see how this may not be needed, but I assure you it’s important to me and many others. Just today, I forgot to save one of my favorite books to my library, though I didn’t feel the need to since I was not going to be clicking off the book, and since it just brought me back to the book whenever it was off the app. Please, I’ve been looking for the book everywhere, and I know I’ve left a lot of comments on it, MY comments which I can’t even view. I can’t even remember the name or what tags the book had, so please if this ever happens again, if I forget, I want something that will help me make sure that I can find it again. Thank you.

It’s a good app but please fix this!
Don’t get me wrong this app is great! I love all the features, and it’s a great place to write stories and fanfics. I have been writing stories for about half a year now and I could say that if you wanna be an author this would be a great place to start. I only use this app because a friend recommended it and then I was just writing stories on my own. Can you please fix the fact that it auto saves like once every 10-20 minutes? Because when I accidentally close what I was writing I loose like half the chapter. Can it please auto save every 20-30 seconds? And also when people read my story then vote on it I can only see that they voted!!! I can’t see how many people read it!! Don’t get me wrong here, I tried re starting the app and deleting then getting it back. Of course in a few hours or days I see how many people read it, but can you fix this? I know that like it’s not a big deal, yeah it’s not, but I would like to see how many people read my story in an hour cause I can only see like 10 votes but no views. If it’s not a bug can you please tell me?? Anyways this is a great app and I love to use it!!! But please fix these 2 things! If you wish to not that’s completely fine, this is just a suggestion!

Amazing but one thing...
The people who already have this app might know my struggles. If there was a way for the books that are 'complete' to have a mark or something, so we readers know that we won't be waiting for updates when we read it. It gets very annoying, very fast when I have to check every book INDIVIDUALLY, in my library if they are complete or not. I understand that there is a filter in the search engine that allows you to see only 'complete' books, but it is (to me) useless. Especially, when you already have the books. Plus if someone, is finished with the book but don't know how to mark it as a 'completed' book, that gets REALLY annoying. Then all of the books in anyone's library start to stack up because of those main reasons. For example... I have +250 books at the moment. Not always a fun thing. So maybe writers could get notifications if they haven't updated a book in a while, asking if they are finished with the book and would like for it to be 'completed'. Of course, the user gets to decide how frequently that happens. To every week they don't update, to maybe even every year. Please hear me out Wattpad, because I know that if there any users like me out there. They would be as thankful as I would be if you helped these problems. Please.

CRASHES AND FREEZING
Before a few months ago I was always an avid Wattpad reader, for years. I had very few complaints, I also didn’t even mind the occasional ads that popped up and by showing the occasional video it wasn’t too bothersome. I loved the app and would give it a 5/5 any day. However, I ended up taking took a few months off and it was definitely a disappointment when I came back. Not only was I bombarded with ads the app, both on the iPhone and Mac, freeze within the first couple of minutes of me going into the app. Most of my books don’t load, and when I delete a book it never deletes it just stays there. Im not sure what happened in between the time I took off and now but it’s frustrating. As stated I understand the importance of ads but having them constantly pop up or show up every other click is a major annoyance to the point of me debating on whether I even want to keep the app. Because of the freezing and crashing to me the app is almost useless but I’m still hoping for an update that fixes that. The 70+ books I’ve downloaded also is the thing preventing me from getting rid of it. I really loved the app before all of this. I’ve also heard that you now require internet to read books or archive them? Not too entirely sure as stated I haven’t really been updated on anything because all I see are ads and then the app crashes but I hope this app gets the upgrade it deserves.

One of the best apps I have.
So I've been using this app for a while now, and so far it has been an amazing experience without any significant issues. There are thousands of amazing books equipped with a great number of chapters, awe-inspiring plotlines, sequels, and more. Wattpad Premium is pretty inexpensive, and there are numerous benefits that come from paying for it. There is a wide variety of genres and tags, and you are bound to find something you like among them. I also like the fact that you can comment on either a chapter as a whole or one specific paragraph that you liked within a chapter. Sometimes the app gives you a short ad after certain chapters, but this is only on occasion and is very bearable. If you can’t stand any ads at all, then you can always choose to remove them altogether with Wattpad Premium. All I would suggest that I(among many others)would like to see added to the app would be the ability to like comments. It would be nice to be able to let a person know that we liked their commentary without necessarily having to reply to them. But this is a minor request and does not severely impact the experience of the app at all. In short, it is a terrific app and I 100% recommend to anybody who loves great stories.

To many ads
I’ve been using wattpad for almost 2 years I think and during that time so absolutely loved it. It was easy to find the books that I wanted to read or find new books a lot of recommendations and much other things too. But I notice that it started to change during the changes wattpad changed in some good ways it’s much easier to find completed stories or on going and it’s much easier to use but it sometimes has it’s issues. I understand that wattpad is a free app and for an app to remain free there would be ads so it would remain free but my issue is that there is too many ads and when I mean to manny ads as in every single chapter I read there is an ad like all the time and I don’t know if other people are having this issue but there is just so many ads that I tried to delete the app then reinstall it or refresh it but nothing works it’s just ad after ad after ad and so on so forth and it’s starting to get irritating to where I don’t wanna use wattpad anymore and just read my books somewhere else and I really don’t wanna do that since I love wattpad. This issue didn’t start until after I updated it which is weird so maybe it was the update or not but I hope you at least limit some of the ads to where they don’t appear after every chapter that you read.

Seriously? MAKE SURE TO READ!!!!
I’ve been using wattpad for a while now. Almost five years and I’ve enjoyed every minute of it. It’s kept me from going to bed when I can’t seem to put down my phone because a book is so good. It’s kept my attention pulled away from schoolwork- which could be a bad thing but also maybe a good thing? Anyways needless to say the reason I’m giving the app such a low rating is because I don’t believe in the app anymore. Sure the app is full of really great authors/ readers who are all there for the same reason. But I feel like you could do so much better elsewhere. Wattpad used to be a FREE community for authors to publish their stories for the readers to devote their time to, whereas now wattpad feels more like an elite community for people who want to pay for their stories. Come on now. You can’t expect half of the world to join wattpad premium or pay for some ridiculous coins to keep reading. I understand paying the hardworking authors on wattpad, however it’s a two way street. You either keep the writers happy and the readers upset or vice versa. I feel as though some more thought should go into these new versions of wattpad instead of keeping just one side of the street happy. Though for now, I’m telling you that it would be a better idea to keep moving. Sorry wattpad but you’ve made a lot of people unhappy with this new system. Until some compromise has been reached I feel like the original wattpad(ers) will loose interest in your app. :(

Disappointed beyond belief
I have had an account with this app since 2013 but due to getting a new phone I was logged out and had to log back in. I lost access and forgot what email was used for my account and contacted support. Now I haven’t actually been on the app in a solid 5+ years because of life getting busy and me honestly forgetting about it and the book I was working on that is in the app, but got the inspiration to start it up again. And the security questions they have to “keep the account secure” are absolutely ridiculous. They expect me to remember 3 books that are in my private library when more than half of them were fan fiction that got deleted. (That and I still managed to give them a total of 6-8 stories) and to List 3 books in my drafts that aren’t published when I only had one in my draft that had partial publishment, and expect me to know the email that is associated with it when my original issue is that I forgot my email and when I ask for a password reset it says it got sent to em__@em__.com. I’ve talked to 3 “support agents” and instead of feeling like I was talking to a human I felt like I was talking to a robot just using different names. Highly disappointed in the way they handled my issues and will probably never use this app again because it makes no sense for me to restart on a new account when I cannot access my old story that was only written on that account.

PLEASE FIX!!!!!
I rarely ever rate an app only ones that have impacted me in a really strong way. This app has saved me from boredom and has helped me be in a better perspective than I have been in a very long time. I have currently been on wattpad for 3 years and have enjoyed it ever since, of course, there have been some glitches and a multitude of ads yet I have never been that bothered by them, until the newest update. While getting out of school I had wanted to get on wattpad and read a few of my favorite books and I didn’t have any internet at school so I decided to go offline seeing as I could always go offline to read them and then I get the notification that I cannot read offline UNLESS I get the premium upgrade which was never in the original app (before all of the new updates), I understand that you app makers need to make money but your app was made to be FREE and to read books for FREE yet it always came down to making more money and ruining a perfectly good app. I had never thought that wattpad would go down this path and possibly never return from it but I hope that the creators of this app can change wattpad for the better and not for the worse like other apps I have encountered.

Update the update
IF WATTPAD IS NOT CURRENTLY ON VERSION 6.83.0 DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME READING THIS Also sorry for any typos, I have a lot to say. I would’ve given the app 5 stars. Perfect app... that is, until the update came along. Using this app was so fun. It never had any crashes or glitches. Once I got the most recent update, everything is glitchy. I can’t look at the comment conversations from my notifications without every other story not loading. Heck, even MY OWN story doesn’t load unless I actually look it up instead of going to from my profile. Also, between chapters are ALWAYS video adds. Before, every three to four chapters had one. Now it’s EVERY. SINGLE. ONE. I would not normally be TOO bothered by that, but these adds don’t even load. I have to wait forever for it to load so I can finally go to the next chapter. I also have to restart the app every 10ish minutes to stop the glitching. The stories I’m reading lose their place and I have to find where is was again. What I mean by that is that it’s like reading a book and at least once a day the book mark just randomly falls out and you have to search the book for your place. Keep in mind, the chapters took forever to load, so the time I took finding my place is equal to reading one to two decent sized chapters. Believe it or not, there’s more. If you read this far, congrats. 😂

I am very lost
This app keeps getting worse and worse I miss the old Wattpad, why does it keep getting harder to find books? Why do we have to pay? Although I agree that authors should get money for there great writing,all I can find are books that I have to pay for.... I still LOVE this app, but I really miss the old Wattpad. Also I really really do not like the newest update, I am very lost and it is hard to get around the app. I have used this app for about 3 ish years and I remember when I first got it I thought it was very easy to get around, but now if I where to recommend this to a friend they would have to ask me LOTS of questions on how to find a book that they like. I AM NOT SAYING THAT THE BOOKS ARE BAD, it is just hard to find books from authors that don’t have hundreds of followers, and reads. I feel like this app just wants money now, there are way to many adds, almost every chapter has a add, it makes me not want to read. PLEASE MAKE CHANGES. Try to think about what READERS AND WRITERS WANT, not one or the other, stop WORRYING ABOUT MONEY. You should try to make a book and take recommendations, so that way you can find a way to fix the app a way EVERYONE WANTS, from OLD AND NEW and writers, I want this to be a app where everyone can feel free and not have any confusion. This is just my opinion btw, take it or don’t take it, but this is how I feel.

Bad Changes
Honestly I used to love this app, it was my number one app. However, y’all have been making horrible decisions. My main issue is y’all taking down authors hard work for no reason at all. These people are great writers and y’all are removing their work for what??? Y’all have labeled this app as 17+ for use so it shouldn’t matter what stories are put out there. Many of these authors don’t have copies of their work either and y’all do not have the decency to at least move it to their drafts so they can still have their book. Yes I understand kids are going to be on the app but they are on everything they have no business being on you talking down someone’s work is not going to change anything. My second issue is those ads. They were bearable, but for y’all to now be putting them at the bottom of our stories is ridiculous. How are we supposed to get the full reading experience if we have a bright white box at the bottom of our screen showing stuff we could care less about. It is especially ridiculous when you are on dark mode and have to deal with it. This app is changing for the better bad. I wish Wattpad was how it used to be because this is incredibly ridiculous and I’m starting to realize why other apps are suggested over Wattpad. And don’t try to make us believe you need ads to fund the app as there are many other apps who don’t require add for us to use it.

CRASHES
I have been an avid Wattpad user for almost 5 years now and have spent so much time on writing and reading stories and I have had to switch to other platforms recently because every time I open a story I get through about two pages before the whole app freezes and I am forced to restart the app. I also am unable to check my notifications because of this. I have over 1,500 Wattpad notifications now because every time I go to check them the app freezes once I start to scroll and I can’t check anything or respond to comments on my stories because of this. I see a lot of people mentioning the adds in their reviews, but I haven’t seen many but that’s only because of the app freezing and glitching and judging everything everyone has said it’s probably a cause of the overload of adds. When I first got on Wattpad, all the features and tools were located in a sidebar on the top left corner and the setup of the app changed a lot for the better over the years, but these last few updates have made the app very difficult to use and I almost wanted to delete the app, but I love all the friends I have made over it and all the wonderful stories I have read too much to delete the app. I have spent a lot of time building up my account and writing stories and it’s really upsetting that I can’t reply to all the comments people are leaving me, so please fix the app.

Changed My Life... However...
Wattpad is honestly one of my favorite (if not my #1 favorite) apps out there. I write and read nearly everyday and it has honestly changed my life. However... I've noticed in the past month a glitch. A couple of my stories have this glitch where when I press "preview" it says "this page got lost in a good story and never came back". The first time it bothered me and then I updated Wattpad and the problem was fixed. But then today I noticed that it happened again to now two of my stories. I can't get rid of it which disrupts me from reading my drafts in order to catch any mistakes I made etc. I'm not sure what's going on but I hope it can be fixed in the next update. Other than that Wattpad is absolutely amazing. While the whole paying for some stories kinda bugged me I do understand that there are writers who would like to pursue their dreams and get paid. Though, another issue that kinda bugs me is the whole offline reading thing and how you have to have premium to read more than two stories offline. I honestly think two stories is a little unfair but that's only my opinion. Okay, that's all. I just hoped this bug can be addressed. Again, Wattpad is honestly amazing in so many ways and I hope it continues to get better.
