Deleted, too expensive


I downloaded this after seeing an advertisement on Facebook, so it turns out after playing for a whole of... three minutes.. that most of the features you see on the adverts are not free. I understand you gotta make money on your app, but after starting a story, within the first 10 taps there was an image (that we have to subscribe and pay for) and it was important to the story, due to not being able to view them I lost track of the story quickly and removed the app. Try charging for “premium stories” or something, and offering short stories for free, including the images... Five minutes of my life I won’t get back.

Deleted unfortunately


I was so happy when I found out this app had came out but as soon as I found out that you had to pay to access most things like videos and pictures I deleted and I was so sad
Please could make this app free. If you don’t want the whole app free then you can still do premium but maybe just for unlimited readings without having to watch or certain stories I feel that would be a lot better and the whole community feel this way too



I write books on my app what-pad and have seen apps like messaging stories and I purchased some disappointed that yo couldn’t see the FaceTime and even tho tap doesn’t have that you can create your own witch was unessesable and this is although you have to wait for 20 minutes each episode but I love this app and highly recommend it!
