When our eyes adjust to the brightness, we realize it’s a pair of headlights in our view. Update approaches the lights to get a better look, but as he does the car screeches off and leaves us reeling in its dust.
“Who was that,” I start, waiting for the debris to settle.
Update puts his hands on his hips and finishes my thought, “and what were they doing parked in the middle of the road?”
As the mysterious circumstances wash over us, a dusty flyer lands on Update’s loafer. He picks it up, reads it, and walks over to show me:
International Film Festival showcasing directors from the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Mexico, and the Philippines.
The gears in his head start to turn. “Not a bad idea,” Update says with a look of excitement. “Wattpad users have been asking for a way to support writers’ careers for a while now. Maybe it’s time to test out those waters”.
“Sounds great, but how exactly would the readers help fund writer’s careers?” I ask.
“Well, just like this film festival, we could have selected stories that audiences can pay to read. They could unlock a story chapter by chapter.” he says.
“Or,” I add, “they can choose to purchase the whole story to binge all at once.”
Update nods in delighted agreement.
“And we could use some sort of virtual currency. It’s all the 'rage' I hear,” he says, quoting the air like it’s going out of style.
I quietly giggle at Update’s attempt at being hip and with it. Somehow it only makes me swoon deeper for him. He puts his arm around my shoulders, “Virtual currency, what a time to be alive.”
“So where are you going to test this brilliant idea?” I ask, taking the flyer out of the warm hand resting on my shoulder.
He waits a beat and then points at the flyer, “If this isn’t a sign then I don’t know what is,” he smirks. “The United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Mexico, and the Philippines, get ready for what’s Next.
- Readers in the US, Canada, the UK, the Philippines, and Mexico can support writers and unlock supported stories directly on Wattpad
- Wattpadders can purchase Coins and redeem to read Wattpad Next beta stories
- Bug fixes and upgrades for a smoother reading experience
Startled by a noise in the bushes, I pull closer to Update.
“Update, I’m scared…” I find comfort in Update’s solid, dependable embrace.
“Do you want me to walk you home?” Update asks.
I hesitate, pulling away, “I would...but sometimes home is unreliable…”
Update nods knowingly, “Just like Wattpad homepage used to be. But now the homepage loads with no problem,” Update looks deep into my eyes and I can see myself reflected in their depths, “Just like our home will be, one day…”
We stand there, lost in the enjoyable dream of a possible future together, when the moment is broken by a large, bumbling raccoon bursting out of the bush beside us.
It looks up at us with beady, accusatory eyes, as though we were interrupting its moment, then scurries away.
Update and I share a laugh, but then I frown.
“What was I saying? I’ve lost my place in our conversation. I guess we need to start at the beginning again…”
Update shoots me a sly grin, “Not at all. I know that used to happen sometimes, both in life AND in Wattpad stories, but now your reading position is saved and doesn’t boot you back to the start of a chapter...just like I saved our place in the conversation. We were talking about - “
But before Update can finish, there is a bright light that draws both of our attention to the horizon…
“Wait, is that…?!”

I’ve been using Wattpad for five years now (nearing six!) and I’ve always loved it, I use it every day to enjoy stories and read on the way home or before bed, it’s great! But there’s a small problem hindering my experience, there’s a specific ad that bugs the app and crashes it. It’s one of those dressing game apps that I can never catch the name of before it bugs out, I’ll go down to the next chapter and the ad pops up- no big deal (even though the amount of ads recently is a bit frustrating, but whatever), but it suddenly brings me to the beginning of the chapter I just finished with the ad music still playing, it won’t let me go to the next chapter (or any chapter) from the chapter menu and if I try to just scroll to the next, it will start buffering a new ad, and at that point will crash it. It makes every two chapters take two or more minutes and a crash to get by, it’s VERY frustrating, hopefully there’s a solution to it so that I can keep enjoying my favourite app. Only reason I can’t give it five stars is the recent ad craze and the bug, I understand the need for ads, but please don’t force it between every other chapter where I have to watch it for several minutes, it’s especially frustrating on books with short but many chapters... other than that, I 100% recommend this app for people who enjoy to read and discover original and fan writings, or if you like to write yourself and share it with many people!
(Another PLEASE FIX)
So someone here has said it already, but we’ve both been using Wattpad for three years. I honestly love the app and I’ve only used Wattpad for all of my writing and reading experiences, because it was so easy to do. Thanks for even making Wattpad to let others experience others writing styles and for fandoms being able to unite in one place. Wattpad has truly changed my life and I can’t imagine a world without it. Coming from someone who doesn’t have the best financial situations and can’t always have a internet connection, it’s a sad thing to say that I can’t even enjoy my own library full of books offline, without a join wattpad premium sign in my face. I’m okay with all of the ads and options to join Wattpad premium, yet when I want to go back and read my own book to see comments and access votes I can’t seem to do it now without a stable internet connection. I know that many people are happy with updates and such, but for some of us, it’s a devastation to not be able to do the things we were once able to do. I know Wattpad won’t go back to it’s originality and will only update more and more from here, but please, for all of your users who can’t join Wattpad premium...for all of your users who don’t have the best internet connections...please let us access our books offline without having to have a premium account. Thanks for reading.
