AMAZING! But needs more stories! (Also a bit annoying)

Ok, when I read the reviews, I thought this was gonna be awesome, AND IT IS!! I love this app so much!!! But what annoys me is the money we have to spend for sounds and photos. It’s a good deal but why would I want to spend 8 dollars on sounds and/or photos for only a week? I want to listen to them for free, you can, but after 3 Days you HAVE to spend the money. And going to the next part you have to spend money if you wanna see it right away. I was okay at first to watch the ads but now I’m just annoyed. And there’s not many stories and I am already half way through in just one night. But anyways, this is great! I just wish at LEAST the smallest things were free and the rest just one or two dollars cheaper? More people would want to buy it. Anyways, GREAT app! I’m addicted!

Developer Response

Hey Bigg Jack,

Thanks for your feedback! We are working hard to writing more stories. We write each of them ourselves. I will discuss the possibility of lowering the prices! I think you are right.
We are working on writing more stories. Hopefully with more content, it will make the subscription more worth it for you and other readers.
Please look forward to more stories in the future! We strive to release a new story at least once a week.



Wow is this app addicting. The stories are well written, and the UI is extremely easy on the eyes and keeps you reading on and on. I found my eyes glued to my iPhone screen and had to force myself to put my phone down and continue my homework. I think what makes this story telling app awesome are the little details that were added. You can tell the developers took their time to make sure the story telling process was perfect. From the sound effects to the choice of colors shown on the screen, you can tell a lot of hard work was put into this app. Keep it up Perpetual Apps!


This like HOOKED but better

I use all of the chat story apps and this app is by far the best because 1) they let you choose what stories to read 2) you can read story the whole thing without waiting for a clock timer 3) it has scary sounds in the stories. Other apps have pictures but no sounds! But please add more stories I want to read more!
