Ratings and Reviews
Regarding “Blaze” Currency.
I downloaded this app when it first launched on the App Store. The app had an incredible idea with users being able to publish their stories and read other stories completely for free. The new “Blaze” can be used to tip creators and to get more traffic to your story, however this is outweighed by the fact it cost blaze to read the story at all. There are many people who would agree that they would rather the app be loaded with advertisements than to constantly buy blaze to watch a featured series or to read a story. For a fix I would recommend you to give readers daily credits. These credits only last for that day and will allow readers to read 3-5 stories in one day. After they run out they could be prompted with watching an ad or buying credits. Buying the credits would of course be permanent and not just for that day. The main problem with blaze is that it makes the description of the app inaccurate. While we can technically do these things for free it’s not able to be earned by an average reader/watcher. It’s not a bad idea on paper to use blaze, however I would consider changing a few things about it before you do anything else. Some of my friends have started uninstalling the app or just making a new account for more blaze.
Great app, few ideas.
I have had the app since launch day and I really enjoyed reading stories during off times at work and when home and bored. However, there are a few things that would make an interesting chance. First off, there should be an offline mode so when our phone isn’t connected to wifi or cellular data, we could continue writing our stories. Secondly, I think it would be cool to add a short bio about what we will be writing. For instance, I am planning on writing about stories inspired from multiple games. While someone else would be writing mystery stories. Finally, there should be a search system to find key words of a specific story. So lets say I want to find other stories about a similar story I will be writing about, I can search up a specific word like “Robot”, “Vampire”, or “Beach” and find stories based off those words instead of scrolling through a bunch of stories.
Edit published stories
I got this app on launch date to support Jesse but stopped using it so I uninstalled it. I reinstalled it after jesses announcement to be moving videos onto story fire. I figured out how to write which is super easy step by step process which I enjoy. It is easy to create a quick made up story or a long in depth one. My only problem is I forgot to change a cover photo for one of my stories before I published it. When I tried to go back and edit it nothing I tried worked. I find this problematic for the sake of fixing spelling errors or character names and cover photos. If this can be fixed I will give this app 5 stars. That's my only problem and I love how easy it is to use
