Every HOOKED story is told as a bite-sized text message conversation, as if you were reading someone else's chat history.

We love reading, just like you, but we know it can get BORING when stories are too long. So we created this app to make reading snappy, spooky and fun.

Drawing on the long tradition of epistolary literature, like Bram Stoker's Dracula, HOOKED stories unfold through back-and-forth conversations.

If you can't get enough of books like Hunger Games, Divergent, The Fault In Our Stars and Harry Potter. Or if you're a fan of fanfic, like stories about One Direction. Or if you just can't put your Kindle down at night. You will love HOOKED. And even if you're not a big reader, but you love Snapchat, you should give HOOKED a try!

Bite-sized scary tales.

Tedious cash grab

I was super interested to give this app a go, but now I’ve found out it’s nothing but a tedious cash grab. The app lets you read about a quarter of the way through before it asks you to wait 30 minutes. Or, what a surprise, you can pay for a subscription to view it all in one sitting!

I understand that this is a free app, and charges will need to be made, but this is just ridiculous. This strategy of trying to entice me to buy the subscription isn’t working at all. In fact it got so annoying that I deleted the app as a whole. This is not good marketing, and certainly not good business practice. If you want people to subscribe, then stop handicapping they into doing so.

Why not instead, scrap the rubbish 30 minute wait timer, let us see essential images to the story’s plot in the text messages, and instead maybe offer a handful of stories that you would have to pay for? That would be a much more optimal way of selling to your audience.


I rate it an five but.....

For an long time hook has not had the possibility to create or get famous on hook or in other words it has been cancelled and it’s not fair on some people who likes horror themed things on an young age for it was cancelled on 2017 December 1 and for I was born on 2008 may 30 which now I am ten with imagination and words to describe magnificent story’s and need the possibility to create stories for my imagination and people like me don’t have the chance to create or spread our imagination so I suggest for you to bring back our possibilities to create
#bring back creativities

And these are the thing I suggest you should do:
Have a limit for making story’s and buying hoots for more space to make more story’s if you do what I suggest I’ll give you not just an 5 rate but an 🌟 also with 5 rates thank you for listening
