Good but...


Honestly, I think authors getting pay is awesome but most stories have chapters that are short that’s it’s not worth the 3 coins that I pay for. it’s really annoying wasting money on something that it’s not worth it. I really love reading all this stories from radish but after my coins that I purchased are over that will it from me because I honestly think 3 coins for chapter that is not long enough to be called a chapter be worth my time or money. I get it that authors want to have that extra money but at least make it worth the money you are getting payed for. Radish should make a policy of the length of chapter they are posting. Or make short chapter one coin at least. We have wattpad but now authors put their stories on radish which is great but it’s just too much and sometimes not worth it. What was fun about reading stuff from app such as wattpad was because of people that wanted to publish their own little stories and what was good about it was people got to comment it, like it but now it’s getting out of hand because we have to pay for it. Instead of paying chapters I prefer getting ads that show up every time I want to read the next chapter.

Good Concept, Bad Execution


The concept is good—providing hard working authors with money for their time and effort. however, many apparent flaws come to light as you use the app. I understand the paying part, but for lightly edited amateur writing, it is far too overpriced. Now, some authors produce publishing quality work, and the some twenty dollars is reasonable (still expensive, but reasonable.) Some works, on ten other hand, are not. Some author don’t complete their works, yet you were forced to pay to read them (that is for premium works.) I feel that in order to qualify to be a premium (even freemium, although you can wait for that so it’s not necessary) your work has to be 1) complete, and 2) reviewed for quality. If any of these points are not fulfilled, the book is demoted to freemium. just a suggestion.



I use this app pretty much everyday and I see many other reviews saying how the money is an issue, but many stories out there are free, and some release a free chapter a week. Yes the updates aren’t always constant, but that’s not the fault of the app itself so I do think it gets unnecessary hate from that. I really only pay for stories that are complete or that I enjoy and I know the author is constant, such as the books in the “Storm and Silence” series. My advice is don’t spend money on a story if you’re going in blindly and not much info on the author. Focus mainly on free stories and high rated ones, because those tend to be well written and have frequent updates from the authors.
