Ratings and Reviews
Fixes to make app useful for visually impaired users
This app is not very accessible for visually impaired users who require using Apple’s VoiceOver function. Please make the necessary changes to allow us access to all the apps functions and tools. I love reading and very much enjoy this app but it needs to be a lot more visually impaired friendly. Please take my request into consideration because I'm positive I cannot be the only user with these issues and concerns. And in an attempt to brive you in to making the necessary adjustments for us, I provide the assurance that you will gain many if not hundreds more users with this issue being fixed and this app being at the visually impaired community's reach. I know I've recommended it to many of my acquaintances and friends and would be more than glad to keep spreading the word to other fellow reading enthusiasts. Thank you for taking the time to read this very long complaint/request. Hope to see changes soon and thank you for caring and creating a great platform for readers and writers alike.
Hi there, and thank you for reaching out. Our tech team is working on new improvements every day, and we want all readers to have a good experience, so we really appreciate your input about this. Please stay tuned for updates, and don't hesitate to reach out to us at email@example.com if you need anything else moving forward.
Enjoyable With A Few Issues
I learned about Inkitt through an author I follow on WattPad. While I enjoy not having limitations on Inkitt and being able to find and read stories for mature audiences, whereas WattPad inhibits this, there are some issues. First off, I’m not getting notifications. I’ve checked everything within my devices settings; It’s the app. Then when you go into Inkitt and check notifications when someone posts a new chapter of a story, it says it’s unavailable, takes you to the beginning of the previous chapter, and you have to scroll down and click “next chapter” to read that new chapter. While it’s not a huge deal, it’s inconvenient. Also, discussions and comments on stories are hard to decipher. It’d be nice if what the person is commenting on was automatically quoted. All that said, I’d like to see some fixes, but it’s a good tool for readers and writers alike and I believe, due to issues I’ve seen develop on WattPad, that Inkitt is possibly more secure.
Thank you for leaving your suggestions and sharing your thoughts. I would love to have a quick chat with you about your ideas - you can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Looking forward to talking to you!
I love this app
Inkitt is really great for authors and writers. They respond well to any concerns readers and writers have and they actually do what needs to be done instead of waiting around like Wattpad.
Inkitt is safer for writers as well since they combat any sort of plagiarism unlike Wattpad. The writing lay out isn’t complicated. Inkitt has clear guidelines for everyone to follow and they email you letting you know if you aren’t following some.
The only thing I complain about (and why it hasn’t got the 5 stars) is because the IOS app still has a long way to go with giving notifications for anything you write or read. It’s also hard to see the full reviews of your work. So if you want all that you’ll need to go to the web page because you can see and do everything easily there. Other than that it’s a great app and you should definitely try out
