Wattpad - Read & Write Stories Customer Service, Editor Notes:

What’s new: I get my bearings and grab my glasses from the bedside table, glancing over to see Update’s snoozing face in full vision. I glance down at the small screen poking out from underneath my pillow. 23 New Emails. 6 Missed Calls. “What the,” I mumble to myself, swiping the phone screen open with the tip of my thumb. It was all a collection of junk mail. Delete. I click into my voicemail, keying in my password and deleting junk message after junk message. Nothing important. Update stirs beside me, rolling over and opening one eye, squinting at the brightness of my screen. He studies my furrowed brow. “What’s up, buttercup?” Startled by the sudden break in silence, I toss my phone onto the bed. “Oh, nothing. Just a ton of messages about absolutely nothing important,” I say with a tired laugh, putting my head back down on my pillow to face him. “Well, while you’re streamlining your email inbox, you can do the same on Wattpad now,” Update says through a yawn. My face clearly looks confused, because he continues. “Now you can mute a Wattpadder to stop seeing their comments or public messages on stories,” Update says. “It just makes the Wattpad experience even more positive.” Other updates: - The inbox on iPad is fixed. - Wattpad Premium+ is now available globally: Unlock 2 Paid Stories of your choice per month, from hundreds of stories in every genre, only on Wattpad plus ad-free reading, unlimited offline stories, bonus Coins on purchase, and theme colors. - Wattpad Widget replaces bookmarks so you can jump right into reading right from your homescreen

Wattpad - Read & Write Stories Comments & Reviews

- 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.

- 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.

- 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!!!

- 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 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!

- 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😑👎🏾

- 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.

- 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?

- 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...!

- 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

- 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....

- 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!

- 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

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.

- 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!

- 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.

- 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! 👌✌️❤️😁😄

- 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.

- 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!

- 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.

- 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.

- 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. :(

- I love it, until the new update

Honestly I am so disappointed in what I’ve heard. Wattpad is my safe place where I feel like I can be whoever I want because other people understand me. But now you are taking down so many wonderful stories that the authors have worked so hard on. You post things like ‘The Wattpad authors put so much hard work into their stories’ but delete the best ones. I’m sorry but if we choose to read the story than why is that your business. Just because Webtoon bought it doesn’t mean it has to be like it. I understand people might not want to read things that have mature context but you shouldn’t take down the whole story because of that. Instead, you can put a warning to let the readers know it might not be something they want to read. But do not just take down stories of people who have spent HOURS and DAYS writing stories. Some people, like me love to write stories for the readers and when you take that ability away from us it makes us feel upset and like all our effort was for nothing. How dare you do this to people. It is a privilege that you guys get so many readers/authors on this app. You are basically getting paid from us just by us going on the app and you are about to get so much less money because people aren’t going to want to be on an app that doesn’t support its audience. Fix this.

- 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.

- 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. 😂

- 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.

- 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.

- 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.

- 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!

- 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.

- Used to love and use everyday but...

I’ve been reading on Wattpad for at least 5 years and it’s overcame so many issues. I’ll start off with a small recommendation, I have a lot of books in my library because I like to bounce around and so I get hundreds of notification in a weeks time and I COULD turn them all off but then I wouldn’t know when the book I’m currently up to speed on is updated. So what I’m proposing is that there be a way for us to choose what books we get notified on for updates. Now to the main point and the reason for 1 Star, I understood the whole ads and the paid stories (which i don’t like, but understand) and I understand you need to make money, but the limitation on how many books we can read in offline was something I’d hoped would never happen to Wattpad as a platform for writers and readers. It’s really annoying as I get tired of books fast and like to read in school (with no service) and on trips (when I have no service because I live in the middle of nowhere). Even if you had to make a one time fee for unlimited offline I’d be okay with that, but I hate the limitation on offline books. It was perfect the way it was before. Please go back.

- Good but subscription ad badgering...

Honestly I love this app/site. I’ve been reading on wattpad even before it had a app. The introduction of the app was amazing, and I loved the idea behind a convenient way to read stories orginal/FanFiction you name it for free. I understood the need for ads to help maintain for servers etc, and even eventually so that the writters could make something of their free content, because the site was always advertised as a free web based place for stories... I’ve run the gambit with the bugs and freezing and issues with ads up through now.... (including annoying battery drain constantly since the appearance of them) and sure they are annoying, but stuff was free. Now not only do we need to pay to read certain content... we are harassed every single chapter tailing a ad for us to subscribe, with a pic that has a unclickable (X)which has varying time periods to close said subscription ad. (I know I’ve timed it..) Atleast with the sponsored ads they don’t show the X till it can be closed. Or perhaps place your solicitation every other chapter in place of a ad. Not everyone has the money for these things and it’s seems very badgering on your part to keep imposing it every second you can. I’d rate more stars even just to have less of the ads for your subscription pleas inflicted upon me/us.

- Cool! But maybe... if possible?

I LOOOOOVE Wattpad. I have only been on for a few months, and it's my happy place now. I'm an author and reader on there, which I find really amazing that you get to read other people's stories and write your own. If I was a developer of Wattpad, I would add some things though. Wattpad, amazing? Sure. Flawless? Yeah. But it could become the BEST THING ON EARTH. I think it would be AWESOME if you could work with other people to write stories! There could be a thing that asks followers or people you follow to join in writing a story. Okay, maybe I'm not high and almighty to be asking about this, but it's only a suggestion. I also would enjoy it if there was a spell check/grammar check for the people who want to write but have trouble spelling. I'm not one of those people, but there are plenty others! And for asking to join in a story? For amazing people everybody love, (take H.J. Nelson, for example) every user could get a limit of five requests until they have been answered. I'm not saying I would make a better Wattpad then what it is today, I would have never thought of such an amazing app by myself. Wattpad is the cause of my euphoria, but it can do slightly more to try to be better if there's anything left to top.

- Ads :(

I have had Wattpad a long time now and I’ve always loved it for reading and writing and discovering new people. The update, however, includes ads that take a long time and now you have to pay for some of the books. It used to be a free reading app and it was my favourite thing to spend my time on. You also changed the logo which was very upsetting because it felt like the end of an era. I’m disappointed in the update altogether. I’ve been a long-time fan and have told all of my friends about this app since I got it in 2013 and I’ve never been more upset than I was by how many changes were made. Overall, still a pretty great app, but seriously disappointing because I felt like this was the one app where everything is free and you can do anything without charging a fee and watching an ad. I can understand that in a world where money is everything, ad revenue is important, I just thought that I finally had found an app that was different. I was wrong. The charging for a book is absolutely ridiculous though I read books on there written by 12-year-olds that are more entertaining than the ones that cost money, but I can’t even read those if I want to. And now you have to offline your stories and take up more room on your phone. Seriously so incredibly disappointing.

- Good but needs improve

While the app itself is really good. It’s a place where people share their ideas and get dead back from others. Some books are fantastic, and others make you “what dudo I just read”. And I love that about it. But what ruins this experience is little problems. For example if you accidentally tap at the top of the screen where the bar is it can take you back to the beginning of the book. Now this would be okay if they had a icon you could press for this feature, but they don’t. Another example is the new feature they added where you have to have a vip pass to have more than 2 books you can read offline. Before this was added as long as you loaded the chapter before hand you could read them offline. Lastly I’ve had a problem where some of the books in my library would randomly start over at the beginning which is a problem because I don’t know what chapter I read last. These small little problems have been causing me big headaches. If these little things could be fixed or tweaked more people would want to use the app. As I’ve said before add a icon to go to the start of the book, allow us to have more than 2 book to read offline, and fixed the bug where it randomly starts you at the beginning. And it wouldn’t hurt to cut back on the adds.

- 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.

- Good app eh premium

Ive been using Wattpad for a few years now and I loved the app, reading books for free, on offline mode and online mode and seeing what people make for book creations, the one thing I did hate in the newest update was you can only have one book when your offline but unlimited if you get premium, I wouldn’t say I like it but I can’t say I hate it either, their trying to help us users save space on our phones which I love thanks developers, but I hate that I need to be in a area where I can get internet access to read all my books I have on my list(which I have like 300, I know I know I’m a hoarder) but also I don’t like how i need to pay 60 dollars a year for premium just to read all of them it’s like buying a xbox gold membership and I should know, my brother uses one, so I would like one of two things developers, A, you make it free again but keep all the rest of the extras because I like looking at black backgrounds because I look at white screens way too much, B, you keep everything but reduce the price on premium to a considerable amount because I know you guys need to make money some how, maybe someone in your group doesn’t have a job and needs this money. I’m just asking for one of the two, if you do both but altering them in someway shape or fashion, that’s even better

- 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.

- You have to stop

I’ve been in Wattpad since a long time by now, five years more specifically, and I have to say I’ve never been so upset with you as I am now. This was supposed to be a platform where people can come and enjoy a whole world full of different and diversified stories. And it was, until they started to worry more for the money than for the readers and users. At first I was really surprised, and kinda upset with the new updates, but I told myself that it was ok, that change was good, but this is too much! First where the ads between chapters— I must admit this was one of the things that got me the angriest—, then was this thing about “subscriptions” in which you have to pay to gain certain privileges, and now, now you can’t even read a story unless you have an internet connection. What is wrong with you! Did y’all lost your minds? You’re making people have to waist money for offline stories. Why?! It’s shameful. Where does all those things about “the best offline and online free reading platform ever” are at? This is not what y’all said and promise us at the beginning. I get it, and I know that change is good, and that y’all need to gain money cause it’s something you’re putting your effort and time at. But, at what cost? A lot of people have been leaving Wattpad because of this things, and I still don’t know, but maybe I’m gonna be next. This changes you’re making, not all of them are for the good.

- beta program

I have had Wattpad for years, it was one of the only reading apps that didn’t make you pay the absurd “coin” fee to unlock stories. Wattpad was a place where passionate writers could come to share their stories with a whole community of people. But now it’s slowly becoming like every other reading app where in order to read a decent story you have to pay. I understand that many of the writers spend hours everyday perfecting their chapters and they should be compensated for their work which was why I didn’t mind the ads that took place between chapters, I figured it’s a small price to pay to keep Wattpad free to read, obviously not. I believe that by Wattpad starting to charge coins to read stories it is taking away from what the app is supposed to be, a place for people to start out their writing career, then they could move on to publishing. I buy plenty of books on bookstore websites, where books have been professionally edited and revised because I know what I’m paying for, Wattpad is for beginning writers or ones who have it for a hobby. Wattpad wasn’t supposed to be the end goal but that’s what the app is moving towards. Many writers on the app who have taken part of this program have stated that they work hard and need this program, if you’re working that hard on a story then Wattpad isn’t the site to be publishing, don’t change Wattpad for what it is. This beta program is just a disappointment.

I’ve been on Wattpad for several years and I have always come to find my Activity Feed very helpful in seeing where I have last left off on a book or where I left a particular comment. I can just scroll down to go back to where I was and reread that part of the story again. I’m not saying that you have to add the Activity Feed back the way it was, since people were put off by it. I am however asking to let us have the choice of putting our activity on our profile or hiding it. This option could be easily manageable in Settings like most things are, with a simple “Hide” or “Show” option, and you could even choose to let people hide certain things that they didn’t want shown in their Activity Feed. Personally I like having things out in the open; I feel like it connects me to other readers by letting them know what I like and what I comment on, but I know that a lot of people would prefer to keep what they read, whether it be kinky smut or cringy fanfic, out of the eyes of other readers. I just prefer this and I know that a lot of other people in the Wattpad community enjoyed this openness too. I hope that you will take this request into consideration.

- Coins to read?!?

Wattpad used to be an enjoyable platform for teens and young adults to read. But now I’m being forced to pay?! I have been reading Wattpad for years now and never had to pay. There used to not be any ads but then those started appearing every few chapters which is fine. Then, there was a Wattpad premium option but otherwise you had to watch a 10-20 second ad which I was also fine with. Now I’m reading a book, only to get stopped at chapter 15 with a notice saying “3 coins for the next chapter or 178 for the whole book”. Come to find out that these coins are ridiculously priced at 9 for 99 cents and other packages for more. I just don’t understand. Kids aren’t going to ask their parents to pay for that and if you have to do that for every reasonably written book then that’s ridiculous. I’ve been reading for YEARS with out having to pay. I understand if it was like a Harry Potter book or something but this is just an outrage. You’re going to lose a lot of followers with this new coin update. I get writers want support but if they do they should try and get it published and take it off of Wattpad, not inconvenience regular Wattpad readers who just wish for a good, enjoyable read. I’m very upset about this and hope you all will go back to just ads soon because I’m not paying 8 dollars worth of coins for a book that I could’ve read for free with minor ads just a few weeks before.

- Love it, but a few suggestions!

Personally, this app is an amazing outlet into my fandoms and it’s absolutely incredible how many stories that I can find. But I would suggest that you try to promote stories that aren’t as popular as well. I’ve read a ton of stories that weren’t nearly as popular as they should be. Also you should add a like button for the comment section. Being in multiple fandoms, it’s gets annoying when there’s a reference and every single person comments it. Or if someone comments something I agree with I would have to respond to give them the “credit” (for lack of better word and I think you get what I mean) for their thoughts. If the comment had a like button, I wouldn’t have to respond. It would be much easier to show appreciation to the commenters who are very funny and come up with good suggestions. And I believe it would be easier for the author not to have to sort through the many, many comments that are the same thing every time, just to find constructive criticism. The first person could comment something, and everyone else could just like it to show appreciation instead of hiding more important comments. Overall this app is amazing and I suggest it to anyone that’s in any fandom or just loves to read in general.

- Things have changed

I joined Wattpad 7 years ago and throughout the years there has obviously been changes and that’s great, however, the fact that being such a old member doesn’t get you anything now is mind blowing to me. I have been using the site since they had various color options and more fonts, no or limited ads, no subscriptions, and no unlocking chapters by viewing ads. I understand the ads help pay writers and keep the app running and thats fine, but paying for coins or a yearly subscription of $60 is crazy considering I have been reading with wattpad since 2012 which is astonishing. I’m not saying to completely waive the fee or anything, but I do think if they acknowledge their users that have stuck with them before all of these changes, such as possibly getting premium for a month or possibly even a year, or a message from wattpad like a personalized letter. I will always love wattpad but it’s getting ridiculous with how much I need to do just to read a book. I also feel that the search engine should be better calibrated, if you type something in, the engine may pop up books you like but most aren’t what you are interested in at all and can’t find what you are actually looking for. The new color theme is also a big change, and actually hurts my eyes because of how bright it is. The color pattern does give off a nice cleaner look but can put more strain on the eyes.

- Honestly

I flipping love Wattpad. It’s got such a diverse range of story’s you can read, and I have to admit, that I’m absolutely addicted to this app! I love being able to read anything I want as you could find anything on there, and being able to express myself through my own writing that others will be able to read. Apart from the occasion glitches or maybe the occasional times where there are way too many adverts, this app works perfectly. It all loads and syncs relatively quickly, and it’s easy to log into your account on multiple devices. Overall an app I would definitely recommend to anyone who enjoys reading, or is searching specifically for a type of genre or book. If anyone is reading this however, and your trying to figure out wether to download the app or not, take into consideration that the only books on Wattpad that you can find in stores are Wattpad original stories. There is also a paid stories program which is sometimes a little annoying, as you have to pay to read some of the really good books, but you can easily get 3 coins a day from ads, and it costs about 3 coins per chapter. I can almost guarantee, that if your looking for something fictional, or something fictional based off something non fictional, you will find it in this app. It’s also so easy to use, and that’s the reason why I prefer Wattpad over other reading/writing apps/companies.

- Love it

I love this app but there are a few problems. The first one is that when you look at my story info it says there are no reads but when I go to edit it it says it has 13 reads idk what's going on and how many reads I have. Second is that it's really hard to get your story out there without help from another author. Tags help a bit but not much. I had a story published for a few weeks and no one read it. Also please make it easier to find new stories to read that are related to the ones your reading not just random ones. Also there is a bug where I'm just reading a story or whatever and it takes me to Te App Store to buy a game as if I clicked on an ad when I didn't. And lastly the recommendations for other books you would like aren't particularly helpful because I usually get books I already have or one I have zero interest in. I love this app but just a few issues. Thanks Edit: I’ve come across a few new bugs where private messages won’t send. I would also like a feature where you could make reading lists private. Thank you

- Good

I've had wattpad for many years and I've enjoyed reading all these different and diverse stories. And I've tried writing some stories myself, though most of the time they never get published. The thing is, wattpad now has quite a bit of ads, which don't really bother me as much as having to pay to read certain books AND getting rid of the ads. And I've noticed another thing with wattpad these past few months. Everytime I'm reading a story a notification will tell me "an ad is gonna appear after this chapter." Ofc I don't mind but the thing is, after I watch the ad my whole screen turns black and wattpad suddenly kicks me out? Now I don't know if it's the app or if it's just my phone. I've also recently found out that we can only add 2 books to our offline list, ONLY 2?!?! I remember back in the day we were able to read ALL of our books offline. And now because of this I am deeply upset and disappointed, and maybe even a little discouraged to continue using this app. I also rembered when we used this app we NEVER got ads while we were reading, but now alsomst every 2nd-3rd chapter we we get one. I Understand having paid stories, but having us pay in order (I can't remember how much but it's was roughly $10) to read more stories offline and to remove ads. Its saddening, because I'm not gonna pay to be able to read. Netherless, I'm glad I'm able to read as much stories as I want when I'm on the internet (besides paid stories).

- Why the money?

The stories and creators on wattpad are amazing, as well as the reading setup. However, I have been with wattpad for a long time now and I hate how it is slowly becoming more about the money and less about small creators who just want their stories to be read. I understand having a few adds here and there, but after every single chapter of any story that I read, there is an add played, it takes away from the whole reading experience, dragging me away from the story. The newest library setup makes it so that unless you are a wattpad premium member, you can only read two different stories while being offline. The whole reason I got wattpad in the first place was to be able to read amateur authors stories while I am not connected to a wifi or service provider. When I first got wattpad, you could add as many stories as you wanted to your library and read them anywhere you wanted, this made my wattpad experience better, as where I live, there is no phone service and a lot of the time, no wifi. I don’t understand why you need to be a premium member to read stories you love. The changed set up makes it near impossible for rural kids, who are unable to afford such luxuries as premium, to enjoy reading the stories they love. I know that this review will most likely never be read by anyone who actually cares about any of this. So, if anyone is reading this, please, help me understand why the money is so important.

- GIVE BACK AUTHORS BOOKS ‼️

ok i’ve been on wattpad for many years now so i’ve seen all the changes but it’s really gone downhill in the past year or so. there’s way too many ads even on books that are free. I don’t mind paying for certain books because authors deserve to be paid for their work if they have that opportunity BUT it’s still a free app that offers free books not ads every 2 chapters. i used to be able to download my WHOLE library which consists of over 800 books but i can only download 2 now. what a downgrade. now the main reason that inspired me to make this review. the deletion of mature books.. a very popular fan fiction called “After” (i actually hate this book lol should have never existed) that even has a 2 movie adaptations is full of mature content. it’s safe to say that “After” has probably gained wattpad a lot of attention and money. wattpad is obviously built of these mature books it makes no sense for webtoon to come in and change around the rules to fit the pg 13 rules they have in place. mature books are labeled mature for a reason, authors put many disclaimers before hand so it’s not their fault if a 10 year old comes along a decides to read a heavy clearly stated 18+ smut. books that authors have spent long hours on were taken down without ANY warning!!! now i’m just a reader but having a 50+ chapters book all of a sudden get deleted sounds so stressful. sorry if none of this make sense i’m angry and bad at grammar and want to rate this a 0/5

- Ideas that will makes your app more attractive

- if you’re gonna make people pay then add features like; pay for promotion, where you can pay for your novel to be seen in an advertisement or whatever. The advertisement could pop up based on the tags the author has put on the story. - paying your writers. Look, this is my personal opinion but, if you’re gonna put advertisements on our work than at least give your writers some credit. I ran without them, you wouldn’t have an readers and without readers you wouldn’t have an app. Even if it’s some sort of token in your app that can get cool things, like idk, no ads for 5 chapters, things like that. That way you and the writers (with bomb content) can make money, and us readers can have read awesome stories. - this is just a wild fantasy of mine but, interactive stories. You ever get one of those books from your grandparents where it’s like, The Lion King or The Jungle Book, except you’re in the story? Like, your name is in the story, as well as your features and and family’s names. Well, wouldn’t it be cool to make money of that idea and put it in your app? seems as most people only care about money... and idk ... it would be a neat idea. I mean, I would definitely pay for it....

- going down hill

i’ve been reading and writing books on wattpad for over 5 years and i can honestly say i really enjoyed that time. the reason i liked wattpad was first and foremost the offline reading option. there are plenty of other places i could have gone to but i chose wattpad bc i was able to read all the stories in my library when i was offline. but now, i have to $6 a month (of which i don’t have as like the majority of users on this app i’m a student, a minor and have no steady income for these reasons). i don’t mind the ads and payed stories that’s great! but this feature is pushing me into a corner and asking me to cough up the cash or leave essentially. also the recommendations system is not at all useful. 90% of the time my recommendations are just whatever kpop and 1D stories are the most popular at the moment and there is nothing on the list that’s even closely related to stories that i am actually in to and are in my library. the process of only ever promoting books that are already extremely popular is extremely flawed because most of them are all just one type of story and there is no variety for readers looking for stories that aren’t kpop adoption stories or whatever. over all, far more negative than good on this app and that’s just because of the way it operates.

- Not happy.

I have been a reader since 2012, wattpad gave me the opportunity to read anywhere and everywhere because I couldn’t afford to pay for books and splash the cash. I have spent probably thousands of hours reading, I would read when I got up, when I was at school and when I got home. I got to read what I wanted and when I wanted. And now I have to pay to read the books? Use my data to have an ad at the end of every chapter? Slowly you guys have been going south. I get the paid stories, sure, but I’m not forking out for your premium service, I’m not paying for the chapters, and most importantly I’m not wasting my data to have to watch a 15 or 30 second ad at the end of every chapter. People join wattpad because of the fact you could read without having to pay. And now I think it has come the time where I have to say goodbye to wattpad because this is absolutely ridiculous. You know when I went away for the weekend and didn’t have any access to internet I would download as many books as I can and read them while I was away. Can’t do that now can I. I’m not the only one and you guys know that and will be able to see that. You gave an escape to kids who need it, an opportunity to immerse themselves into a good book without having to pay or to watch an ad. It just seems money hungry now I’m sorry.

- It’s over. It’s not me it’s you !

I have been on Wattpad for about a good 5 years now, I have read countless stories that have made me laugh, cry, and feel many other emotions. I didn’t mind when they added in ads I could handle giving up 30 seconds of my time to support the writers whose work I loved reading, then they added premium and I could handle that too it really didn’t impact me, then their was paid stories now that was a bit annoying but still I could live with it but now limiting the number of stories we can have in our library saved offline to 1. I am sorry but you just lost a long time user of your app. I thought that the app was all about being able to discover stories to love and a means for upcoming writers to be able to express their stories and share them with others and was originally all for free and now with the new update you have limited the chance for that to happen all due to the fact that you want money from users going to premium so that they can read stories offline. I am not sure if you know this but majority of you users are students, low income workers, or parents who might not be able to afford to pay for the premium services or have access to wifi 24/7 , I know I myself don’t. So I guess it is time for me to say goodbye to what once was my favourite app.

- It’s becoming a bit too restricting

I love Wattpad, I really do, but I don’t think I’d be able to continue to use the app if it’s going to continue to be restricted unless you purchase “Premium”. I don’t think I could keep using it, it’s not so much the lack of freedom anymore but the unreasonable restrictions. The last updates have been fine to deal with but now it’s even harder to move around with room on the app, I think, fo me, restricting the library actions was just a bit too far, as a school student I read up to 5 books a day and don’t have access to the internet or the money to pay for a continuous premium. Restricting it too only 2 offline books, without being able to tell if the books will last long enough... moving to another platform does seem to be the easier option, and I hate to admit it but I’m leaning in that direction and I’m sure others are as well. I just think Wattpad has crossed the line when it comes to how much should be restrict without having to subscribe, especially when a large portion of Wattpads audience is low income teenagers and young adults in school with a tight budget. It sad because for a long time Wattpad has been a huge part of mine and my friends lives, in being able to express ourselves and see others expressing themselves in ways we can relate to them.

- Constructive feedback (don’t disregard-take seriously)

This is my second review and I’ve dropped the rating by two stars. I’ve had Wattpad for a solid two years now. It has an amazing community with numerous unique books and authors. However, an issue has seem to arisen with the new updates—offline reading. Surely you’re aware of all the poor reviews and ratings this app has been receiving consistently because of the limited books you can read offline. Giving authors the opportunity to earn money off paid books is an absolutely great idea, it helps supports authors; many people who are willing will pay premium for that. Nevertheless, it seems quite ludicrous when you expect your app users who majorly consist of teens and can’t make the investment to pay for a feature that used to be absolutely free, and nor can you expect us to become accustomed to these unnecessary updates. As high school and college students we have prior payments to make such as saving up for bus fares and college tuitions. Your users are what make up the entire Wattpad community and you cannot disregard our feedback, without us this app wouldn’t have gotten where it is today. So take all our constructive criticism and apply it to where it needs to be applied, otherwise you’ll soon see those ratings dropping like bombs.

- 7 years and still going but come on give me some more themes

So I’ve been using Wattpad everyday for the past 7 years and my screen time is ridiculously high like I’m talking 100+ hours a week and I’ve been fateful I haven’t joined other reading sites or audio book sites because I love wattpad no I’m not a writer I’m very much a reader and I’ve stuck by when wattpad went through some really bad updates but I think people are going over the top about the whole hating the new logo I mean I love the old logo it’s been around for 13 years but I’m not mad about the new one wattpad is 13 YEARS OLD PEOPLE!!! They are entitled to a change like this after 13 years so get over it they changed there logo you should be more worried about the fact that we don’t have more themes! I remember the times when you could change the font colour, the page colour and the type of font on IOS phone!!! Get over it it’s a new logo it’s still the same app! P.S wattpad makers if you didn’t guess I would really like new themes please

- Some annoying things

Love wattpad and have over 100 books that i adore BUT I have a few issues. I hate that the “recommended” shows up with books that I have already read, voted and commented on (even put into reading lists and my archive). Wish they would not appear in recommended. Also wish that I would “woosh away” a book or remove from the homepage if I have no interest in it, similar to Tumblr, so that I can find books I would actually like to read! This would be really helpful! The “hot” and “featured” parts of genres also need to be wayy longer as there are usually only 10 or so books in each section. ALSO there are so many glitches I don’t know how Ihaven’t deleted my account out of frustration from the amount of times it freezes, 5 minutes after a new update as well!! update: the newest update which includes every author's message board posts is SO ANNOYING! i don't want to keep up to date with every single author i follow, and if i did i would go onto their profiles and look for myself. the message board posts clog up my notifications and make me miss books that have been recently updated! please change it back to the old version i hate it

- What has happened...

I am being completely honest when I say I absolutely LOVED Wattpad (operative word being loved). I used to find it incredible that an app with such amazing features existed. However, since this new update I’m starting to reconsider... I know that as an individual they probably won’t see this review and even if they did, they wouldn’t take it into consideration, but hear me out. These new updates are absolute rubbish. Wattpad used to be 10x better before the updates. I’m honestly so scared to update now because I truthfully don’t want to see what new restriction they have come up with. Every best feature of the app is slowly being removed. I mean what in the world is the only one offline book. Absolute garbage. I’m starting to reconsider using this app. The developers have become more greedy and restricting and honestly the Wattpad community will start dying out. It used to be a place of creativity and enjoyment, now it’s just another organisation that wants more money. Hopefully they come to their senses and restore the app back to normal, if not the community needs to boycott until they have no choice. Thanks for reading. (If this is the developers please be a bit more considerate to the people who can’t afford these features, return to the way you were before).

- Wattpad used to be so good!

Wattpad before was amazing even when they introduced having to pay money for different things and adverts BUT now you can only have 3 books saved offline !!!!!! Like seriously you already put enough adverts on the app! Like what’s if I’m camping or a long car trip ??? Ahah no i can’t read because I would probably finish the books! If you want a limit then fine do it but 3!!!!! Come on at least 6 🤡 look I love the books on wattpad I love fanfic and all that and I would really love to keep using wattpad but I’m so close to deleting this app it’s just getting annoying!!! I’m happy for more adverts or something and I’m fine with it not being 100% free I understand you need to make money but seriously it upsets me now I can’t have my books offline and I’ve talked to other wattpad users and they think the same !!!! You will lose your readers wattpad !!! Especially because some of us don’t have the money to just blow and don’t have much money at all so yeah! Please please re-think this, yeah making money is good and you need to but soon wattpad won’t be free at all and haha will probably still have adverts so like you will lose a lot of people!!!! RIP the good days of wattpad you are missed 😭

- What the hell happened??

Honestly Wattpad was such an amazing platform and I’ve had it for so long due to the mass amounts of amazing writers and stories to read, which inspired me to delve into writing of my own. When it was ahead of its time, now it is simply backward, the stories consist of extremely cliche fanfics that hold no substance and the rare but great Fic’s in Wattpad can be found somewhere in the depths of the abyss that is Wattpad’s useless tags. Along with the updates that don’t actually seem to fix any of the bugs or ‘update’ the app with new features except provide previously avid Wattpad lovers with a new ‘premium’ feature that just takes away from the beauty of its previous nature. The previously free features are instead replaced with some money hungry ‘Go Premium’ button staring into your broke and innocent soul. Most of the people that use Wattpad are either teenagers who write for fun or creators that seek a platform they can freely express their juices without having to pay money to maintain and interact with others through their art. If Wattpad continues down this spiralling path of not listening to its customer base it will be no surprise when writers find some other place that provides them with a viable platform to showcase their work. 🤷🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️

- Please reconsider for future updates

I have been using wattpad for almost 4 years now. Every time I update my wattpad, it seems as though the app is getting worse and worse every time. The fact that premium is a thing completely drives me nuts! I understand that your company needs money but isn’t this supposedly a non-profit app? The fact that it’s a community where we can all share our stories and ideas with each other sounds like something you shouldn’t be able to profit from. And the fact that we now can’t read more than one book offline is just ridiculous! I miss the time where I could just read without any ads or without having to pay to read other books or where I could read unlimited amount of books offline! I would love for you all to just reconsider the features that old wattpad used to have and to bring them back or to find a way to give that community-feel back. To me, wattpad now just feels like an app where it’s goal is to leech off people who don’t have a job and need to find a way to pay for premium that isn’t really necessary in the first place.

- 10/10!

Wattpad is an amazing app. Almost all of the books that poeple read are for free, there are also a lot of fanfic books that I personally love. So many creators with so many different genres. You have fanfics, dramas, romance and anything that will fill your personal needs. You are able to add books to your offline list which I love SO MUCH! And if you stop reading a book and think you are going to lose your spot, it’s fine. You are able to save it to your library and if you haven’t done that it still automatically saves and you are able to continue reading from where you left off. It’s an easy 10/10. Highly recommend getting this app (especially if you are a book worm like me). Another great thing is that you can create your own books and out your own genres into this app and when you search for books you can use tags to get more relevant things that are more so what you want.

- Money

I’ve had Wattpad for three years and over time it has not gotten really any better.. The recommendations list for my entire family’s profile is getting filled with books that are incomplete to 3 chapters only for the next few weeks and don’t spark any interest for me. Not only that but paid stories have gotten kind of annoying, I understand that it benefits for the author but it’s kind of tiring for people who are unable to but the coins but are really interested in the plot and the author.. I have to address the offline book thing on the app, people have said things about that but since then it’s only gonna up by one book, since 2019 you weren’t able to read any book in your library unless it was added as an offline book, which is hard for people like me who constantly forget to put books in my offline list, the idea of putting on offline list honestly puts a stop to the benefit of just being on a train and reading books without having to use data or wifi.

- Horrible

I’ve had watt pad for about 2 years now and I have loved how you could read books offline and it was perfect for someone like me who uses it at school and at work but ever since the update I was highly disappointed by the fact that I now have to pay for the books that I have saved to read offline and I may have the money for it but I refuse to pay a cent just to have access to read books that I have chosen. I only got wattpad for the easy access to books at school and work for the offline access and it’s going to be harder for other people who enjoyed this app to do so aswell, so either I find another fanfic app that allows you to read offline without paying and delete wattpad or wattpad gets their act together and allow everyone to read offline. Yes I do understand that they need to earn money but restricting people’s reads to 2 books isn’t the way to do it and not everyone has the money to do it. Either they write their own books and have some authors write stories that they can use or find another way but don’t make people spend their money that could be used for something important to buy access to something that they won’t want to do

- Constructive Criticism

I actual love Wattpad so much! I don’t mind the premium and the offline reading limit at all because I can work my way around it. Because I read one book at a time so I don’t get confused and I read books that are completed so I can binge reading them. I also read ongoing books but I wait until they are completed. I love Wattpad so much! It’s such a great app, I would 200% recommend to other people if they were contemplating whether or not to download the app. However, I have a list of things I would like to be added into the app to make it easier. I would love to be able to write reviews on books on Wattpad, so that way we know what we are getting ourselves into and so we know we aren’t wasting our time. Like a little section that says “Reviews” about a certain book. Not sure if that makes sense but be able to write reviews on a book on Wattpad. I would love to be able to go into Night Mode while reading. Like be able to make the reading page into Night Mode. Because at the moment we have the home screen and the comments of the book, not the actual page where we read it. It would be wonderful to have that as night mode too! Another thing is that the Private messages often glitch. When I send a message the same time the other person does, the messages don’t sync and the don’t show up. I would love for that to be fixed. But other than that! I’m absolutely in love with Wattpad and it’s a great app! Keep up the good work :)

- “Reading position” problem

I’ve been using Wattpad since 2013 and have loved it since the start of my use but I have come across a problem recently. For the past three books that I’ve read, whenever I finish the last chapter that has been published and exit out of the book, it appears that there’s a section that was not read. Thinking there’s a new chapter I do onto the book to read it, however the chapter that is “unread” is the same exact chapter that I read just before I exited the book. I will go back onto the book and “read” the chapter (by using the scroll bar and scrolling through the entire chapter so that I end up on the bottom of the page) thinking that would fix it, but the moment I exit the book, the cover of the book shows that there’s a section I did not read. What should I do?

- Used to be good, but has some major issues

one of the biggest peeves with Wattpad is that when you set a story to private, any comments stop appearing in your notifications list. Yes, you still get a notification to someone leaving a comment, but as soon as you open The app, that notification is nowhere to be found and you have to go searching for it. Really frustrating! -1 star Anything rated mature is instantly void from the ranking system, so the only stories in the ranks are usually badly written teenage inexperienced copycat stories. Read one, you've read them all really. -1 star The recent major issues with plagiarism of stories from the Wattpad site, and the questionable conflict of interest of the Wattpad ambassadors who protect obvious plagiarism and delete the accounts of the original writer to remove the competition / evidence. -2 stars. I used to give this app 4 stars, but sadly, it's suffered a huge fall from grace in the last six months. There are some decent writers on WP, but you are going to have to search deep for them and most of them are now going to other platforms where they aren't punished for being good writers.

- Search Function isn’t the best

Hi Devs, There’s something that I find quite annoying with the search functions that wattpad currently has. 1. You can’t pick the tags you specifically want when you’re refining your search. You can only choose one main tag while the others are preset options you get. This makes your filter option heavily restricted. You allow authors to tag their stories for fine tuning their audience, but you don’t allow readers the quality to search for their own tags. How does this allow for readers to find the author’s work?? I don’t know. RNG? 2. When picking a genre, the searches come up with the generic one size fits all. It’s not completely catered to what kind of stories the reader has in their library. It is honestly the most annoying thing I’ve found. You have a search function with limited use. It’s basically a tease that creates irritation amongst readers (like me), who are looking for specific tags. For example, I would like to read a completed story, this will be the main filter, I then of course would like to refine it to something I’d like to read, BUT WAIT! I CAN’T! Why?The tags are preset. To my misfortune, the tag I want to use isn’t in your preset option. It’s not popular enough. Not saying your currently fiction is wrong, but it definitely needs a lot more work. Putting in a feature where we can search for our own tags would help readers find novels more fitting for their taste.

- The Fall of a Great App

Much like these other users, I’ve been using Wattpad for years now. It used to be a close-knit, personal community to share stories and ideas with each other. Now, if feels as though we’re all miles apart with the latest updates. As all the changes rolled in, my love for Wattpad as a whole slowly dissipated. I gritted my teeth and went along with it, because surely these “improvements” were to bring new readers in, right? However, the latest update has drawn the line. I rely on the app to get me through the long journey to and from school. I don’t have access to wifi often, nor do I have a lot of data to use. And now I have to PAY to read these free books? I’m a student. I live independently on top of that. I can’t afford to pay for a premium subscription, just to read the stories in my library offline. To be honest, as fun as it’s been, I think it’s time to move on from Wattpad. I can no longer it if this is the result.

- New update is TERRIBLE

Honestly I have loved wattpad for as long as I can remember I read it every day and I am obsessed with the books and before today I would have given it 5 stars but this NEW UPDATE is completely trash. Taking away the opportunity to read endless books on long car rides, aeroplane flights and simply when you have no internet connection or enough data is completely stupid and ridiculous as a lot of the audience that reads wattpad like myself are in school and don’t have a job. How are we supposed to pay for a premium that is simply been modified to basically force us to pay or we cannot use it is wrong in so many ways as it restricts the use on this app and unfortunately many MANY people that have updated are extremely not happy such as myself and even my friends this has lead us to pretty much use other platforms which is devastating as this was such an enormous part of my childhood and for a very long time was the best app you could have. I suggest you either reverse the update completely or lose a lot of the community.

- Wattpad is great and all.. But

Wattpad is great and all.. but, there’s a little problem that I got recently. It’s about the notifications about comments. When I get notified on my notification board and tap the comments from the books I've finished, it will just keep loading and loading. It's not because of my bad internet, because I don't have bad internet, but I looked through thr problem and thr problem was because I have finished the book. Well, that's what I think. I finished a book I read earlier and went to my notif board because I've got some notifications, tapped the replied comments from my comment on my book. And for some reason, it just kept me on the loading screen. Which is pretty frustrating for me and I can only hold my patience for not that long. So can you please fix this bug? It's starting to get annoying..

- It Helped My English

I was fluent in English before I got the app but there were words that I didn't put in the correct sentence sometimes In school I'll struggle with punctuation a lot, so it was kinda hard for me I got this app Wattpad, I knew what it was and I knew that my sisters had it so I got it I read some interesting books Romance Fanfics Fantasy I loved them all! Until I found out I can make my own so I did My first book wasn't so good It made no sense(I spent a lot of time on this one, didn't publish) My second book Still made no sense (didn't publish) And third book Still made no sense but a bit better than the others (didn't publish) And then there were others I made which I also didn't publish Until one day I decided to make this book called 'Best Friend' I wrote the first part and I showed my sister She said it was pretty good So I continued it I read over my pages over and over again for my mistakes Soon and slowly I started to realise I was getting better and better every time the more I wrote and the more I read I learnt new words I started to get better scores in my English and I was able to pronounce things better I feel great now that I can write better All thanks to Wattpad (And my sisters) I 100% recommend you get this app It's so awesome!😱😆

- Not so keen on the new look

As far as writing platforms go, I’ve found Wattpad versatile and user friendly, and by far the easiest site to use and navigate. I’ve had a few hiccups with the editor freezing, and a few odd glitches in between, but I’ve still loved the site. I’m not so keen on the new logo or that there’s no option to change the colour scheme to a more eye-friendly design, not for free users anyway. Which brings me to point out that I’ve found the video ads to be extremely intrusive, and annoying for users with limited data or with bad internet. I don’t have a problem with ads in general, but scrolling through a book and having my app crash because it tried to load a video ad- and failed- is beyond tedious. I also don’t like the way the site has started to promote premium exclusives. Did you have to insist on taking a leaf out of YouTube’s book? If the price was a lot less expensive- maybe, just maybe I’d consider it.

- Few problems

I love this app a lot don’t get me wrong but there are a few problems 1. I don’t like the actual app I prefer using it on the internet because, the app doesn’t load all my books In my library and the books in my library are grey and when I click on it it doesn’t go to where I left it it goes back to the start of the book which is annoying as hell. 2. Most of the books don’t add to my library which is also very frustrating because that means I don’t get notified about updates. 3. The suggestion books would be good if they were like ones I’ve previously read not complete different ones not even close to what I like, also not ones I’ve already read nothing more annoying then have a suggested book and you’ve already read it so no new books that way unfortunately. If those problems are fixed it would be a outstanding app.

- Not as good anymore...

I’ve seen a lot of people saying the same thing as I am about to, though, it’s valid. The new update has ruined the app for me. I would read stories during school, and at my friends’ houses, and it was amazing. I love the idea of a place to upload ‘books’ for free and to even read them offline, but the new update is money hungry. I understand needing money to keep the app alive, and I could live with an ad or two on the occasional book, I could live with the paid stories. But this app isn’t what it was just a few years ago. This app isn’t the fun, creative space for aspiring writers, fandoms, and kids to have fun. Having only 3 offline spaces for stories is ridiculous, and while the app has brought me many good times, and years of enjoyment, I might end up deleting it soon. While I love this app, I don’t think I can deal with the new update. It’s put a sour taste in my mouth and I don’t feel like just putting up with it. I hope the developers consider changing this.

- Amazing but could improve a little

I’ve loved using Wattpad and writing and sharing with others and I really can’t complain about it as an app. However, communicating to others through messages is extremely frustrating and could be greatly improved. I didn’t join Wattpad to send messages to others, but everything else about this has been an amazing experience except for the messages. When trying to send messages to people, you’re unable to see what you’re typing because the keyboard is in the way, this is my biggest problem with the communication in Wattpad and I’d love to see it fixed and further improved. Please keep up the great work, aside from communication, Wattpad has been a great experience!

- New update problem

I really love this app and I’ve been using it for a couple of years but the new update where your stories are separated into offline and online sections aren’t very preferred for me as I’m a none membership person who can only put one story in the offline section, it honestly annoys me that I have to read a story that might not even be completed than either delete it and re-add it to the offline section after another update or simply wait till it updates, in my preference I would’ve preferred to keep the old system where you have to refresh it and wait for your stories to be downloaded properly onto your library because I could read more stories offline without having to switch back and forth after a while, overall I hope you can design it to be more suitable for none memberships as well.

- Eight plus years of being a Wattpad user

I used to love Wattpad it was my favourite app Overall however Since Wattpad introduced paid stories and paid membership all the app ever does is glitch( probably trying to get people to do paid membership). It no longer keeps track of where I’m up to in stories, I can’t access the navigation while I’m a chapter I can only do it at the end or start. There are a lot of ads and I don’t mind ads they help the writer however when they were introduced we were told they you only be every now and then lately they are between every chapter and they are very very repetitive ads. Overall if I can find another app that doesn’t have these problems even if it’s a paid one I will switch it’s just way to much hassle to have to find where I’m up to every time I want to read a chapter of a story. Also I’m happy to pay to use something like this but the fees Wattpad are charging is extremely outrageous for what they offer, especially when very little of the profits ever end up with the author.

- Get rid of paid stories

I downloaded Wattpad 6 years ago and it was a good decision. I could write stories and have fun with it. I could read whatever I wanted and know that I can still have access to it offline. I found my favourite book on here and I read it every year. But then you brought in paid stories and only allowing people have 2 stories downloaded. I loved this app because it was free. Read and write at anytime day or night with or without wifi. My favourite book is now a paid story. I’m happy for the success of the author but people’s favourite stories shouldn’t have to be paid for. That’s what publishing companies are for. On here everything should be free. So many apps are now bringing in money and it’s super annoying. You’re popular already stop just trying make your apps ‘better’. It may make it better but it also pisses off many users. You better see this and do something about it.

- Battery???

While I still love this app as it makes it a whole lot easier to read from Wattpad on my phone or iPad lately it has been doing some weird stuff. 1. It will randomly, while I’m reading, turn the sound all the way down on my phone and I just get the little notification in the middle of my screen telling me my phone is on silent. 2. What’s up with the battery consumption with this new update wattpad? It’s been like 2-3 days since I updated the app and since then I can go from 100% battery to 15% within 3 hrs of reading a book. My phone is fine when I don’t have wattpad open and the battery will last past one day so like what the hell wattpad. So while I love the app for reading purposes you really need to fix this in a new update wattpad cause it’s absolutely ridiculous. My phone is about to go flat now, 3.5hrs after unplugging it this morning from a full charge and all I have been on is wattpad. FIX THIS.

- Once a 5 star app

I have had Wattpad for so long I can’t tell you when I first discovered it. I’ve always loved and raved on too so many people about it - convincing them to download themselves. However then came advertisements ... then paid only stories. Honestly, I hated it but I appreciated that there was still the option of reading free and that it was still an app I could enjoy while viewing ads here and there for support. However I just discovered the change to the offline reading list. One of my favourite things was that I could download a story (any story, any amount) and read it offline with a simple click of a button. Which meant those long flights or lack of data where I had forgotten a book didn’t matter because well I could take out the app and either try a new story or read back on a classic. Really disappointed to now find that is no longer possible.

- THE APP KEEPS GETTING WORSE

I used to love Wattpad (I still do love reading the books) but the apps interface is continually becoming less user-friendly and more money-focused. Everything costs way too much money. There are several things that I wish the app would improve upon. The first is that there should be more than two offline books available at any one time (without paying for premium). This used to be a default feature but everything good about this app seems to get taken away at some point. The second is the activity feature located at peoples profiles. I understand that people like to have privacy. This is why there should be advanced privacy settings within the app so that users can be as transparent/private as they would like. When this feature was in the app it was nice to see what your favourites authors and users were reading and commenting. The idea of Wattpad is great, but eventually I will most likely delete it due to the restrictions put on ‘free’ users.

- This is a complaint. I’m very disappointed!

Ok so I would have given wattpad 5 out of 5 stars but no! I won’t! I love wattpad their are so many amazing stories you can read. Most of my day I’d be reading stories off wattpad, because I enjoyed it so much and I got to read any story offline but only if it was in my reading list. Not to long ago I updated wattpad and when I opened it to check out the new update, I found out that they had changed it, they changed the fact that I could no longer read my saved stories offline. I can only read THREE stories that will be put only to offline reading section. So out of all my saved stories in my reading list I can only read three offline! This has really made me made and very disappointed in wattpad. AND!! If I wanted to add more stories into my offline list, I’d have to get wattpad premium! Like what the heck I am not paying, it’s stupid! So WATTPAD!! Please change the update. Thank you!

- Glitching

I absolutely love this app. I use it every day for hours on end and you can pretty much find anything that you want on there, it’s got a reasonable amount of ads and there are books that you have to pay coins for, but using ads you can get coins and read them so it’s not like you have to pay to read everything. it’s always really nice to have conversations with people about the books they’ve written or with people who are reading the book and come up with theories or just discuss things. But I have been having this problem where It will constantly glitch and my book I'm reading will be reset to the first chapter. it’s extremely annoying and I don’t know how to fix it because I’m not doing anything wrong as far as I know, I really need help with this because it’s beginning to happen every day so please fix this as soon as you can

- message board!!!!!!!!

I love wattpad, I’ve been using it for over four years now and use it nearly everyday. But the message board!!! I get that some people might want to stay connected with who they follow and stuff but my notification tab is just full of people’s random message board posts that I don’t really care to read. I tried turning off the notifications in my settings but they didn’t work. Please allow an option to turn off getting notifications for people posting on their message boards. I used my notification tab to see who followed me or who commented/votes on my stories, but the tab is so full of message board notifications that I have trouble finding all of that. Please fix this; it was a cool feature but some people want to be able to control what notifications they get (((:

- Okay, so..

I’ve been using Wattpad for about a year now and up until now I’ve had no problems and loved it, though I have some problems with the new update. The new colours and design aren’t that great, since the white is more vibrant and is used more, leaving less contrast, and the brighter colours are kinda an eyesore and make things harder to read. I usually do struggle with change a lot, which doesn’t help. Personally, id love you to change the colours back, but obviously the world doesn’t revolve around me. I hope you take this into consideration as I have also met someone on Wattpad who has recently been experiencing difficulties with looking at screens, and especially screens displaying flashing or extremely saturated colours. Thank you! Of course, before the update, I would have given a five star, but I am rather upset about the update. Anyway, thank you for putting up with my whining, and goodbye!

- Love it but could use something

Hi amazing app I love the stories but it would be a bit better if there were more real books and some real books I’d like to see on here are all of the warrior cat books, it might take a while but I’d really like to see them on here because my sister got me the first sires but only the first, third, fifth Ed and sixth came! So I had a look on Wattpad, its got some really good fan fictions but I would like to see them on here. I as well as me, I think other people would like to see them on here. It’s been over about 3 to 4 on this since she ordered them but they still haven’t nt come! But with how many people like the warrior sires I think it would be a good idea also don’t forget this is only a suggestion. From Oakley Rose

- Greatest Reading App.

I honestly love this app. Its new update of the logo hasn’t changed my thoughts on this app at all, and it’s very fun to use. You can make friends, find the community right for you, pick up tips and tricks and get to write away things you’ve been thinking up. It’s an enjoyable app, and I’ve barely had any problems. The age recommendation is right unlike many apps and it’s most likely the greatest reading platform. The only thing stopping me from giving five out of five is that the white. It’s blinding. I’m fine with it, but when you go doing late-night reading it becomes an issue. If we could have the option to shift between white and a darker option (or at least make a night mode that doesn’t involve premium) then it’d be very pleasing and would diminish a lot of complaints.

- Is this a glitch, or...?!

I love Wattpad, but I was extremely disappointed to find out that the books in my library can no longer be read without internet. Any story added to your private library when online used to be able to be read whenever, but now that advantage is gone. It’s become a nuisance, and with the bad internet where I live, I rarely get to read any. This could just be me, but the two stories that you get to put offline don’t work. I still need internet, so... what gives, Wattpad? Is this a glitch or...?! Everything else is awesome, and I beg you to keep publishing books free, because my piggy bank is filled with sand. I love being able to write my stories, and I can’t afford to pay to do that. Thank you, just fix the glitch or whatever it is with my two offline stories that don’t work even 𝗼𝗳𝗳𝗹𝗶𝗻𝗲.

- Going Downhill.

Wattpad, what happened? Don’t get me wrong, this app has offered me countless hours of entertainment, introduced me to fandoms and communities I absolutely love... but it’s been going south. I downloaded this because I found it much easier as an app than in other browser-based platforms. I loved wattpad because everything was free. It was simple. The unlimited library was the best, especially since I travelled a lot, and could save multiple stories to read. Look, keep your paid stories. I understand that. Keep your story insights. Keep your premium, whatever. Those are fine. But please, for the love of god... remove the two offline stories feature. If it’s to ‘save storage’, how come the premium users can store as many as they want? That, and the ads. For example, isn’t it kinda a jerk move to make me watch an ad, then when I exit out and come back, make me watch another? As far as I know, people have the same views as me. Please, take into account your huge teen audience. We’re the ones who spend the most time on the app. We can’t spend hundreds of dollars a year just to remove ads and be able to read more than two books at once. Get down from your high horse Wattpad. Money isn’t everything in the world.

- Please consider your readers more

When there are stories being recommended I really thing it should filter out stories already in the accounts Library as it blocks me from finding more awesome stories. Also I HATE the new Offline Downloaded story thing cause it makes the library look unsettling to me and puts me off using the app. In my opinion you should stop putting that ugly black bar everywhere cause it makes Wattpad as a company not only look like they are begging for money a majority of it’s audience most likely don’t have but it makes me want to not spend money and support the app when they are making such horrible changes which to me are changing the feel and calmness which I was feeling but now I see a stressful black bar which makes me feel anxious making me close the app down.

- Why?

I’ve been using Wattpad for as long as I can remember. I remember sharing it with my friends, telling what a great app it was, that you could read unlimited stories, offline! It was amazing for a 12 year old to have that opportunity, be able to read offline since internet wasn’t an option. I could handle the ads in the update, enjoyed even. I could give back to the writers I read countless stories of. Paid stories, I felt pressured, as if all the best stories were now having to be paid for, something done on countless other readable websites, ones I backed off from for this reason. Now, two story offline is the limited. Two. Unless, I a college student already neck deep in debts, the two part times jobs I work sustaining my living away from home and student debts, pay to be able to read more than two story offline. Wattpad was my favorite app, it was joy knowing I could read without having to use my internet data. Now? I’m not so sure.

- moving platforms.

after almost five whole years of being on this app i found myself making friends and having a platform to produce stories on, it was very understandable when more and more ads started playing but when the premium offers and paid stories started showing up it was just difficult as most of my stories i had read from my childhood were paid stories and i could no longer look through them to reminisce. although it didn’t bother me the offline option bothered me the most. again most people have said that it was hard to navigate and many can’t even afford premium. for a non-profit app this seems to be making a lot of money of CHILDREN. i get that they need to do something to be able to stay up but i believe this has surely gotten out of hand and i have substituted to another reading platform. as much as i love wattpad, this has just gotten too much to handle.

- Not as good as it use to be

When I first got Wattpad I thought it was the best reading and creative writing app out there. But in current years this has changed. I’ve just spent the last few months using Inkitt and I have to say I prefer it more now, the fact that I can create multiple reading list and still get updates from the books means my private library A won’t be as cluttered and B it won’t be filled with books that I’m waiting for updates for. It has also come to my attention that if you don’t read a book for a while and you go back to previous chapters where you’ve voted the star is no longer coloured which I find annoying as I use them as a type of bookmark when I put the books into reading list to de-clutter my library. I think that the app as lost its touch and needs to get back to being as good as it was before.

- #bringbackoldwattpad

its amazing i love this app but the new aesthetic is horrible. everything is so much darker and modern. bring back the old wattpad design it was vintage and cute.

- Hate The Beta Program

I used to love Wattpad. And I understand that they are trying to support writers and I think that’s very important, but it seems that lately everything that Wattpad was when I originally downloaded the app has gone in favour of money. I used this app because I could escape and not worry about money issues. Now, everything that I am interested in reading is denied to me because I can’t afford coins. And I know that there are still free books, but the way that they choose which books are free is if they’re not the best books- anything that gets any attention gets monetized. So the things with writing that doesn’t appeal to everyone or books that aren’t very popular don’t get any support, but the ones that are crazy popular and could probably be published in hard copy format cost money that not all of us can afford. Bring back the add format- Writers still got support, but no one is asked to spend money that they don’t have. The Wattpad beta program is awful. If I could give negative stars, I would.

- Premium for unlimited offline mode?

Are you kidding me? I used to use Wattpad to read my favourite stories on the bus but now I can’t even do that because I need data to that, the whole reason I downloaded wattpad was so that I could read stories by different people anywhere without wifi, I didn’t need to add them to my offline mode or anything, and another thing why is there only TWO slots in my offline library? Like what is with that? Bring back the regular offline library where I didn’t have to pay money just to read a fan fiction on the bus!

- A glitch?

I love this app—i almost use it everyday but there is one problem that you need to fix. Whenever I’m at someone’s profile and I click on a book that’s all the way back, it never finishes loading and it’s annoying. Please fix this.

- bad

y/n did not get kidnapped by 5sos for this

- The heck?

Okay Wattpad...You started off as a free app for FREE books and you already make millions of dollars off of us watching ads..AND NOW I can’t even read those books anymore? The ‘coins’ are over priced. Good books can’t even be read by most people anymore. So I wonder, why? You did this.

- Downgrade

The new update is stupid. You shouldn’t have to be on wifi to read books, that was one of the many reasons I loved Wattpad, but now with the go premium for mostly everything is ruining the app. I enjoyed it when I could be camping and still be able to read books offline and now I only get two books if I don’t want to pay for premium every couple months? This isn’t an upgrade, this a downgrade at is finest.

- Rlly?

Okay. First of all. All my stories used to be offline and now they aren’t. And I’m really upset because now I have to pay just to read my stories offline now.

- Bring back the old Wattpad

The new wattpad right now sucks. You get to have only 2 offline stories and I like the vintage one better because It kinda brings back the old days when I first started reading wattpad and I think it’s simple, but cute. Pls pls pls bring back the old wattpad!!😭😭😖😫💖

- There's a glitch

Wattpad is good. But there's this weird glitch where I'd suddenly loose my place in a book I'm reading and I'd have to find where I was reading. Like, I'd go on wattpad and when I press on the book, it just starts off from the beginning of the book. It's really annoying please fix.

- This sucks

Ok, so as an artist I understand that it takes time, energy and effort to write and that authors definitely deserve to be compensated for such if it’s an original story (not Fanfiction or plagiarized work). I believe in Author rights, and that if they wish to sell their story rather than have it free, that’s their choice and props to them. As a reader/consumer it my decision on which stories/authors I want to support by spending money. However I always felt that what was great about Wattpad was that it was a place to get amateur writers exposure and allow them to get feedback, build up a reader base and grow as authors. It was also a great tool for people of lesser means (kids, people from 3rd world countries, struggling artists, etc) to access original creative content. Now it feels less like a creative community and more like a consumer community where everything has become monetized. The app creators need to make money too, as everyone else, but now it feels exploitive for some reason. The worst change is the offline library being so limited. Not everyone has access to WiFi or data 24/7 and unfortunately it’s people of lesser means who usually don’t. People who will NOT be able to afford the subscription. But I guess they don’t care about these people anymore. If they’re gonna limit it for whatever reason, why at such a low number? Wouldn’t it be a better compromise to use a higher number, like 30 or 100? I hope that users of the app take a stand with me and submit a low rated review and stop using this app until the creators start listening.

- What the heck?

I love that I can read whatever I want and all but this new update if only having two downloaded books? Really? Are you that desperate for money? This is absolutely ridiculous.

- Seriously

The app is good I love it and I’ve been using for a long time but the new update is horrible. The fact that you have to pay just to read more then two stories online is so dumb and stupid because the it’s all about money like what? Bring back old Wattpad cause this sucks

- No

The colour is too vibrant and the cover looks dumb. So bring back old Wattpad. #bringbackoldwattpad

- colour

The colour is just so bad,, the orange is too vibrant it's painful to look at. Please change the colour back, at least. The logo is nice and I understand the concept of it, but i'm not sure I love it. Sometimes good things don't have to change because they're already great the way they are. I've been on wattpad for over 5 years. I've seen it change. But this one is just the worst one so far.

- Hate new update

Extremely annoying to get halfway through a book then find out i now have to pay to read the rest of it, people use this app because it used to be free because a lot of people can’t afford to be paying for books they don’t know if they will even like. Also most of the books that are going to be free won’t be any of the good ones so what’s the point on continuing to use this app. Quit saying Wattpad is remaining a free app because a free app wouldn’t have so many hidden fees: false advertising.

- DNF

Dream Not Found Content :D

- Going downhill

Stop deleting stories, authors put time and effort into them. Also the ads?? Why are there so many now

- A different purpose.

Wattpad no longer embodies the statement “reading for pleasure”. Their purpose has changed, straying away from the people who have given endless support to a platform desperate for money. Needless to say, I will no longer be reading on Wattpad as I am very disappointed in how they perceive the meaning of reading, where everything is about money and no longer for the passionate interactions between authors and readers.

- Greedy

Im actually very mad simply because now I can only have two offline books and you claim it’s so I have control over my storage yet if I wanted to have them all offline I have to pay monthly for it!! Paid stories were fine but seriously how does that make sense. I’m thinking about switching to another reading app because this is awful

- y/n

okay off topic but y/n is such a pick me girl with no personality. bye

- hate the money program

y/n did not get kidnapped by 5sos for this.

- Yikes

Getting rid of spicy content is gonna loose you guys a lot of support 😩✋🏻 Y’all are mighty brave

- Bring back old Wattpad

Why the have they become so money greedy now, i miss being able to read all of my stories offline without paying, and along with the fact that alot of the smuts are being taken down, like its 17+ app, webtoon get your priorities straight

- amazing!

im just a sad gurl who needs to read about my non existent love life and if you’re the same, this app is for you 😙✌️

- ;)

these bts fanfics tho i- i’m enjoying this😂👀BITCH IF YOURE READING THIS YOU BETTER READ FANFICS, or i’ll fight you👊🏽😡

- it was good but now

wattpad used to be my go to app for road trips and offline reading. now with the very stupid 2 book max i can’t read anything. it really sucks and you’re ruining the app.please bring back the old wattpad.

- It WAS great

The older version was better. I understand that you need to make money to keep the app running but this new feature is pissing me off. All my books were offline and I could read which ever I choose now I have to pay for my library space. Wow thanks.😡😡

- Uh...

Don’t get me wrong I love wattpad and its creators but this new premium thing isn’t working. It’s not just that it’s annoying, it’s that it won’t work and that at this point it is just a money grabber. In my opinion the demographic of users using wattpad are probably 12 year olds reading fanfic. Do you think they have money? And also how many people do you think got annoyed with it so they ended up deleting the app? Remember when wattpad was a free platform for creators to get together and for you just to read because you couldn’t do the same on other platforms.

- Dear Wattpad

This sucks. I, and many others, joined Wattpad for the fact that it was a FREE book app where I could reading millions of books both online and offline at my leisure. In the past, I would’ve given this app a solid five-star rating but now I don’t think it adds up to that standard. I feel like Wattpad is slowly turning into an app solely based on money and straying from their original goal. I was okay with the paid stories program, and I understood that the writers behind these magnificent works need to be supported, but now that reading books offline has become a premium feature, I’m afraid I won’t be continuing with Wattpad any longer. Only 2 books to read while offline without premium, like come on? Are you serious? I used to be able to read HUNDREDS of books offline for FREE. This has completely ruined my experience.

- Offline stories

I’ve had this app for years now and have slowly watched it become a money grab. Yes I understand that people need to be payed but everything is just forcing you to get premium. Everything was perfectly fine with the offline stories. I could read whatever I wanted while on a trip as long as it was in my library, but now I only get 2. Why? What’s the purpose? There wasn’t any harm before so why did it have to change now? People get bored with two story while on a long trip. Please bring back the old offline stories cause that was the only really good thing going for the new Wattpad recently.

- Unacceptable

I know I use a free version but there are a ton of advertising and each time is 15 seconds. Now you tell me that have a new experience is a 2-limited-story. Can't believe that!!! ( ಠ ಠ )

- Highly disappointed DO NOT DOWNLOAD!

For someone who has had this app since 2016 when it was free and you didn’t have to pay a crap ton for a membership, I am very saddened. Now I can only read two stories offline and not unlimited and yes there are ads but they never bothered me. What bothers me is that now I’m limited to how many stories offline I am able to read. I loved the app, until it was turned into a membership and non membership app. I’m very saddened to see it go this way. And I’ve noticed that it’s going downhill and barely any new stories besides the ones people are being paid to make, are being published. So ya don’t get this app NOT WORTH IT ANYMORE.

- The newest update

Seriously, I used to love this app, but now we have to pay to get offline stories?!? Like come on! Wattpad was much better before! I will not pay for someone that I had for free! Please bring back the way it was, I don’t want to read all my stories only when I’m online!!!

- Freezing and Crashing

So I've decided to give this app three stars because on my phone it's great and works alright. On my IPad though recently I can't read anything because the app will freeze and then it ends up crashing. I hope this is fixed soon. Thanks.

- Idea

I absolutely love the app! But all the ads are really annoying and I think that you should add an option to do a search of the books already in your library, it’s really hard for me to find some good books without knowing the name

- Disappointed.

I am a longtime user of Wattpad. It originally started as a platform for inexperienced writers to branch out and write for people looking for some free, original stories. Over the years, Wattpad has changed for money. Don’t get me wrong, of course I expected some small changes to happen as the platform grew. But these changes are anything but small. Only two stories at a time in the library? Video ads every 10 minutes? And so on. I am extremely disappointed. So with that... I was a longtime user of Wattpad. I’ll be deleting the app seeing as updates get increasingly worse.

- stories being taken down

stop taking down mature content. authors put time, effort and hard work and wattpad would decide to take it down. THERE ARE WARNINGS AT THE BEGINNING OF THE CHAPTER. the app is 17+ and im sure they can handle the mature content. if you want more people to read on wattpad then stop taking down the stories. one of my favourite books was taken down. it was literally my comfort story.

- I like it

It’s really the best app ever ! You can read all your favourite subjects! But it’s starting to la a bit I can’t really search books or reading the description..

- So...

Okay, so. I love Wattpad. But, the monetization has taken so much charm out of the app! I feel like every single good book is monetized now, and it’s frustrating. Some people don’t have all that money to pay, and it’s not fair. Not to mention the fact that people can only have 2 books offline. It’s stupid in my and many others opinions. I know I can speak for many people when I say the monetization should be removed, or at least lowered. Hopefully wattpad will listen, and try to make the app something the users want.

- OH HELL NAW

Wattpad is now a goner:// time to move to ao3.

- Gonna lose a lot of viewers

They are deleting all smut to make it kid friendly (what kid uses Wattpad) and I don’t think they know how many people use the app for that kinda stuff. It’s not fair to the writers who put time into there stories just for you to delete them like that.

- stop removing mature content.

stop taking down the mature content. the app is legit 17+ i’m sure they can handle it. and they put a warning before the chapter so you know if you want to read or not. it’s ruining the app, and your gonna lose so many numbers of you keep going😪

- Kinda sucks since they bought it

You just ruining this app... Im leaving this app

- Used to be amazing, but that magic is clearly gone now.

I used to love reading all kinds of stories here on Wattpad, now most of the interesting stories are being deleted without arming or notice. All the people who worked hard on their stories are now stressed out because of this. The app is 17+ for a reason, you should’ve expected some explicit stories. What’s the point of having the 17+ sign if you’re just going to baby around a perfectly good app. Used to be 5 stars in my opinion but that lowered down to one. Some people are getting their accounts wrongfully removed. This isn’t fair. This isn’t a children’s learning app obviously, that 17+ sign is there for a reason. All those people who did their best with those stories and some of them who ranted their emotions because that is the only safe place they could get it out. All being deleted for nothing. For shame!

- 🤺

I love the app but STOP TAKING DOWN ALL THE GOOD STORIES. There are warnings for mature scenes and the app is 17+ for a reason. Also a lot of the best stories cost money which sucks😒😐

- Comment

Alright so I have 2 problems. First off all, whenever o try to comment on a story it says “unable to interact with this user” so I made a different account to see if it’s just me and that’s where my 2nd problem comes in. I try to comment but I need to get an email but the email just don’t in my inbox.

- WHY CANT I CHANGE MY EMAIL

It’s obviously a good app but it keeps saying I need to put in my email and I did that several times with different accounts and yet ✨nothing✨ that’s why I get 1 star-👺

- Verify?

It needs us to verify our accounts now to vote On books I might just delete it at this point you’re taking away millions of votes at this point 😒 I CANT EVEN GET ON MY ACCOUNT BECAUSE I DONT WANNA PUT MY ACTUAL EMAIL I JUST WANTED TO READ MAN

- Fine, but...

The app is okay, personally because I choose not to pay for any paid stories. If you guys want to find decent stories I suggest digging deeper to find the less discovered ones. A lot of them are well developed and don’t get the attention they deserve because the authors are not “famous”. The reason why we only ever see paid stories or ones with millions of views (that may have horrible grammar mistakes etc) is because Wattpad only promotes those ones. Most other authors are underrated and deserve more reads and votes! And hey, at least those stories are free A good way to find them is to click on random profiles in comment sections of books, some of those readers have great books too, and follow people with great books :)

saturn⁷₈ is in class

@HALAMINAJ write and read wattpad stories in class and then have the teacher ask “whatcha reading?”

#THLockedLove

@wattpad is a free platform for all the aspiring writer and bookworms. Users can freely download the application and make their own accounts, can freely add stories to their library, can freely read stories offline, can freely write and publish their own stories.

I remember enjoying stories from there. Oh, I also contribute 2 or 3 fics, I wonder if people still read it. EXO, B.A.P, B1A4 are everybody's favorite to be used as casts. Then come the orange world called Wattpad. It's convenient ofc having a single platform to write and read

mel ʚĭɞ

@R1VERROADD @rbblovebot @91KISSIE bc wattpad writers are demons sent from hell to spread bad writing to everyone & convince 12 year old cishet girls that they need to write & read stories about queer sex exclusively😋

᪥𝑰𝒔𝒂᪥

Guys, @wattpad is not mass deleting NSFW books, they’re deleting books that have been violating the guidelines. You can still read/write NSFW stories on Wattpad. Read this, it explains the situation in much more detail
