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!

🙄what the heck.

I literally just downloaded this app and was super intrigued with what I was reading, which I'm sure what everyone saw as an ad, the horror story the Watcher. Then all of a sudden I run out of "hoots" and then the only option for more for whatever reason I have to PAY for them or wait over half an hour to continue reading. What in the hell is the point of downloading an app to pass the time away if I only passed 5 minutes and have to pay to pass away more!! Not a good way to earn money if that's what you're trying to do. Make the whole story free plus maybe a couple others. Then have "customers" earn the rest. Dumb dumb dumb. Absolutely disappointed..

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!

Awesome app, but one problem...

This is an amazing horror story app, but I only got a few lines into the first story that pops up for everyone before it said I had run out of 'hoots'. I had to buy a subscription to the app or wait for 30 minutes. I think that there should be a few stories that are free and the rest should not have to be bought but maybe somehow earned by the users. Still this is a really awesome app and I would definitely suggest getting the app and trying the 7 day free trial to see how you like it.
