After trudging up the stairs of Update’s apartment, I’m met with a note on his front door:
Can’t wait for you to see what I’ve done to the place, it read.
As I turn the door handle of the door, I notice the walls are painted a vibrant white. In the living room, I see some new furniture accents—all in an energetic, punchy orange— and an excited Update standing in the middle of the room.
“Do you like it?” Update bursts. “Before… my paint colors, the decor, it was great for a while… but it was time for a change.”
As walk from room to room, The old, faded orange walls, warm and welcoming as they once were, look even better with a fresh coat of paint. Update’s old couches, well-loved and worn-in are now dotted with bright orange throw pillows, a welcome addition.
“It’s everything I loved about your place before, but with some modern touches,” I reply, impressed with his eye for decor.
“That’s exactly what I was going for, Notesy. I was inspired by the new brand Wattpad is rolling out. Check it out,” Update says as he hands me his phone and shows me the app.
“Ooh la la! The new colors are captivating—it really shows off the breadth of stories! It looks like they updated their logo too. I like it. It’s still Wattpad but with a more energized, fresh feel,” I comment as I scroll through.
Update, aware the app is getting more attention than his interior design work, grabs the phone back. “Yep, it’s still the same Wattpad we know and love but with a new logo, color interface, and tagline: Where Stories Live. Significant changes to reflect the diverse and inclusive universe Wattpad has created over the last 13 years”. His passion is adorable.
“And what do the changes in here reflect, Update?” I playfully ask. He shoots me his famous side smirk and suddenly lifts his arms in the air:
The apartment lights go out and we are left laughing together in the moonlit window.
Ratings and Reviews
Wattpad has, and always will be, an amazing app to write and read books. Sure there are some updates that not a whole heck of a lot of us like. Yes, I am one of those people. I know there are a few glitches or bugs for certain people, but I am not one of those. The app is perfectly fine, and I have had no problems with it at all. Sure at first I wondered why I didn’t get any notifications popping up, but when I thought about it, it was a blessing. I didn’t have a red circle right above it telling me I had over 10 notifications saying someone posted this or that. So I actually have no issues with this app besides the cover. Not a fan of the newly updated version of the symbol we all knew and loved. The orange isn’t the same and I just feel that you’ve taken this whole “update” to a new level, that I personally wasn’t ready for. I’m not saying at all that it is terrible and you should change it back, but to consider it. Sure it’s just the cover, and I am most definitely over reacting, but I don’t care. It’s just too different from the old signature Wattpad symbol. Instagram changed its color, you changed more than just its color, and we all know it. I feel like it’s the app that’s just trying to fit in with everything. I thought it was perfectly fine before hand. There was no need to spruce it up or add a fresh coat of paint, as it had said in the update story. It was fine just as it was, honestly.
I always look forward to going to wattpad every day to read and write. I currently have a book published and another one in the works. This app is great, except for one thing. I don’t know if it is a glitch or if it is supposed to happen, but everyone’s message board posts blow up my notifications. At first I didn’t mind it, thinking it was just a glitch and in the next few days it would be fixed and everything would go back to normal. But now, I think it’s been doing this for maybe a month (I actually don’t really know). All the message board notifications have been preventing me from seeing comments and votes on my actual story and updates from my favorite stories. This really bothers me. I put a new story out about three weeks ago, and it has a very low number of votes and comments compared to my other story. I honestly don’t know if it is all the message board notifications or if everybody is less active because school has started again. Even I have ignored all of my notifications some days because I didn’t want to go through the thousands of notifications just from people posting on their own message boards. So I’m wondering if other people are doing the same as me and ignoring it overall, leading them to not reading and commenting as they used to... I’m definitely not saying I’m thirsty for votes, but this even prevents me from reading. Thank you for reading, I hope it made sense...!
I Need help with a bug! (Not bad review on app, just a bug issue)
So I’m writing this here because I’m having a major bug issue. (Don’t let this review keep you from getting the app. It’s totally a good place to read stories from community authors!) but starting about five days ago, I have been unable to open the app. It would show it’s loading, then kick me off completely. I thought it might of been my connection, so I tried again later, same issue. Next day, same issue. This went on all week until I finally deleted it yesterday. This morning, I attempted to redownload it (thinking all it needed was a little reboot. Btw I did already restart my phone) and the app won’t even show up on my phone. I go to the App Store and click “open” and, surprise surprise, it shows its loading, then kicks me off the now invisible app. I literally can not find it anywhere on my phone after downloading it. It’s just gone. I can see notifications from my library though, but I can’t click on the icon to see what books were updated. And since I can’t exactly open the app, I can’t see a complaint. So hopefully one of the developers can see my issue on here and fix it. I hope no one else is having this issue as well because this is a really good community app for aspiring authors and crazy readers.
