Alan the chipmunk

So the app itself isn’t the best. The story’s are good but the fact that you have to wait 24 hours to continue the story, completely turns me off and I know it has done so to a lot of my friends. I just went back on the app after 24 hours and I didn’t even get to use it for a minute before it said that I had to wait 24 hours again. It’s ridiculous. After that incident, I immediately deleted the app. I know the developers won’t do anything about this because all they are looking for is money. But they’re kind of stupid. The developers would gain a lot more money from more people downloading the app if there wasn’t the annoying 24 hour wait. I know that I definitely would download it again if they stopped it. Most people aren’t willing to pay for this stuff. Just saying.

Pictures & Videos


I think that it is stupid that you have to be a subscriber to see the pictures and videos! If we aren’t allowed to see them then how are we going to know all the detail in the story! I happen to be a 13 year old and I can’t exactly pay so I can see the pictures and videos! I would like you to allow us to see the videos and pictures even if we aren’t a subscriber and make other stories so that you have to be a subscriber!

Over all I do think that Yarn is an awesome app and the horror chats are extremely intense however the only thing that lets this app down is the fact that you can’t see the media on the chat fictions! Please if you see this review take it into consideration and sort the problem out!



I really love this app and all the stories are great. You can choose any story you want and change stories halfway through one if you don’t like it. I have stuck with the same story for a few weeks and there are multiple, parts and I love it. There are sexy, horror and and many more themes for whatever you like. The only bad thing is that unless you pay quite lot of money you have to wait 25 minutes between small chapters and you don’t see the pictures unless you pay too, luckily the pictures are just very pixelated so you might be able to just make out what the pictures are but it isn’t the same. Overall a good app with a few cons.
