This is a completely honest review. I would give this app no stars if I could. WATTPAD is one of my favorite apps and I love reading on there, but this app is honestly just a disappointment. First off, when you enter the app it MAKES YOU tap through a weird story about some killer little girl. I'm sorry but that's not why I downloaded the app! I wanted to read something else, but I guess I have to read what they want me to. No problem. So I clicked through it and then a video call came. I was like that's pretty darn cool, but when I tried to accept, The app said I needed to buy premium. ADVERTISING and I wasn't even 5 minutes into the app. ALSO, the prices are insane! I'm sorry but money doesn't grow on trees and some features like pictures should at least be free. I understand the need for funding but please offer some free so i can see if I like it before blowing $8 a month. I don't want to put in credit card info for my FREE trial. So I obviously declined and kept tapping. Then it told me that I needed to wait like 30 mins to continue reading this story that I didn't want to read in the first place. The opening story should only be a tutorial and you should be able to click out of it!! I've only had this app for a bit and ALREADY frustrated but I'm going to keep trying because one of my favorite Wattpad writers is writing on TAP. Unless you are okay to pay for premium, don't download this app.



Okay so I saw this app and thought ‘this is gonna be so good, plus its by Wattpad so huge plus’ but no it was all LIES and DISAPPOINTMENTS. The add I saw for it looked really good, so I tapped it and got the app-when It FINALLY downloaded not only was it REALLY slow, but there was not exit button on the story. I thought it was weird but didn't linger on it because I thought I was about to read and awesome story. Im probably about 15 taps in before it presents me with a choice, in which I could not skip-and I couldn't leave the story-but I had to get premium to select a choice. But I cant because money doesn't grow on trees. I understand the ‘you have yo wait 30 minuets’ thing because otherwise there would be no need for a premium and nothing would be gained from the app by the developer, but dont present the app with all those premium things that we average people cant get. At the very least give me an exit button.
This app was not at all thought out well. There are so many flaws with it. Plus in some of the other comments, I saw something about needing to read some horror story beforehand-not everyone can read horror stories. As a kid I couldn't even watch/read Goosebumps without having bad nightmares. This could be a great app, it just need A LOT of work. A LOT.

So disappointed


I love these kind of interactive chat games so much. And so when I saw that Wattpad had one, I was so excited. But when you first open the app you’re forced to read a story that you didn’t even pick! I tried many times to click out or go to the home page. But the app wouldn’t let me. And then after tapping a few times a video chat request comes up. Which sounded awesome, when I taped the “accept” button a page came. The page talked about how to answer the call I had to pay. A little shocked I continued with the story. I was flabbergasted to see that I also had to pay to see pictures! I understand that the app has to make money, but the price for weekly subscription is a little pricey. Plus what if I simply don’t want to pay. By not being able to see the pictures and videos I don’t get the real experience. Why not just ask for donations, people will more inclined to donate if they truly love your app. But nooooo. Instead you force us to read a story we never chose then you charge us so much money to see pictures and videos. Really dislike the app, definitely going to delete it. If you’re thinking about getting this app be prepared to spend money to be a part of the story!
