Great! Totally recommend it!


I love this app up one wall and down the other! It may seem really cheesy at first, but it’s a great app, trust me. This app has all the abilities of a reading app and then you can change the background and edit how you want to see it. I think changing the background is a great idea! The only problem I have ever had with it is the internet connection. That’s my only issue but other than that this app is great for all your reading needs. 🖤🌫🖤

Only a few key things...


The only reason it gets a 4 instead of a 5 stars, is I don't like how I can't ever seem to search on here like I can on wattpad. You get tags, and sometimes the author but not always, and that's just an extremely annoying flaw that really bugs me. Other than that the app is amazing! I love how it's set up and works! I like how is a bit more mature than wattpad, but not drowning in porn! You can still find really good Romance novels with out running into 50 Shades BDSM in every one. It's definitely a nice balance.



I never knew this app existed until recently. The only reason I downloaded it was because wattpad Kept crashing, so I thought that since they're both linked together, I could read my stories on wattpad on here. I was right, aside from that, this app is the same as wattpad with more MATURE CONTENT. You'll find some of the stories on wattpad on after dark aswell. For me, there's nothing to complain about.
