HOOKED - Chat Stories

By Telepathic, Inc.

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


HOOKED lets you read amazing chat stories FREE. These are gripping, edge-of-your seat thrillers that will keep you reading for hours. Or, write your own story and get lots of fans!

Every HOOKED story is told as a bite-sized text message conversation, as if you were reading someone else's chat history.

HOOKED also lets you create your own chat stories from your iPhone. Share stories from your life, funny texts or creepy crawly conversations from your worst nightmares. HOOKED is your very own chat diary, for the world to read!

With Hooked's Fantasy Chat feature, you can even write stories WITH your friends! Choose a prompt, create your character, and invite your friends to play along with you. It's like improv on chat!

We love reading, just like you, but we know it can get BORING when stories are too long. So we created this app to make reading snappy, spooky and fun.

Drawing on the long tradition of epistolary literature, like Bram Stoker's Dracula, HOOKED stories unfold through back-and-forth conversations.

If you can't get enough of books like Hunger Games, Divergent, The Fault In Our Stars and Harry Potter. Or if you're a fan of Wattpad fanfic, like stories about One Direction. Or if you just can't put your Kindle down at night. You will love HOOKED. And even if you're not a big reader, but you love Snapchat, you should give HOOKED a try!

hoots and reada

Ok so I just downloaded this app and when i got on the app it showed me this edge of my seat story and it was so awesome! But then it said u have no more hoots😒 I mean like are u kidding me?! I just downloaded this app just to wait half an hour or something for another story or more hoots! I was really 😡 i didn't like the fact i had to wait i have no patience what so ever. So like please allow us just to read stories WITHOUT the HOOTS or READS just let us read without them. I mean i was into the story like getting into it! It stopped me at the middle of it and i got mad like i said. Thats why i only rated one star. So if u don't change this app to no more hoots than im uninstalling this app. Thanks and bye!

"To-Read" and "Story Ratimgs" List?

I really enjoy the app. Is it possible to create some kind of "To-Read" list? When I'm in the middle of a story and waiting for more hoots, I tend to scroll through titles and I have to screenshot the ones I want to read eventually. It would be great if there was a list we could add stories to. Also, it shows how many people have read the stories, but we don't have the option of rating them. Can a ratings scale be added? I've read countless stories and while I've read some 4-5 star stories, most of them are only 1-2.

I am "Hooked"

I absolutely love it. I saw a sponsored ad on Instagram and decided to check it out. I do not regret my decision. I am absolutely obsessed with reading the stories. I cannot put down my phone, unless I run out of these things called hoots, which just makes me count down the minutes until I get to read again. 10/10 recommend. Already told all my friends about it.
