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 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!

Customer Reviews

Used to be good

This app used to be amazing. I would read and enjoy stories all day at times. Eventually they added a crappy update that makes me want to use a different selection of words. There are now pictures that you must pay to see, but wait there is more you will have to continue to pay this every week! I figured it's not too bad not getting to see the 500 pictures! Then not even half way through it stops and says you're out of hoots! Then it says speed up the process, out of curiosity I tapped it, tobonce again be met with the pay $500,000,000 a moth for unlimited hoots. I tried go find other apps but it's the same crap please fix this.

Terrible Pay to Play

The app itself may be free but the entire app is based around the developers trying to force you to pay money for pretty much everything. As soon as you get the game you're asked to pay to see the pictures in the stories and also the audio! On top of that I would have to pay to even finish reading the first story unless I want to wait like 30 minutes.

Don't get this app unless you intend on paying for everything.

You pay them to write stories for them

Ridiculous business model. You pay them a subscription fee to access a tool to let you write stories in bite size. Something that you would be much better off doing on twitter for free.

Also the more stories on their platform the more it benefits them not you. This is the same catch 22 of any social media site you need to users to get users except they are charging you the honor.
