I really wanted to give this a chance, but it blew it. The “stories” aren’t even that good, and the pictures and videos are very important, HOWEVER you have to pay to view them! This is outrageous, how can it force you to read a horrible story, and pay to see important parts, and still have the audacity to make you wait 30 minutes for the next half of the story! Who in their right mind would see this as “good”! I read the reviews of the five stars, and they are just as bad as the app itself! I tried, I really tried to give it a chance, but it’s so bad, so outstandingly garbage, that I had to stop halfway through reading the first part of the first half of the story I was forced to read, because the writing was god awful, the story just decided it would implement something without context, and the “scary” or “thrilling” bit was so terrible I almost threw up reading the sentence that said, “Trevor... He killed them. They’re dead.” The five star reviews are either from genuine idiots or from spam bots because they all say I ONLY WISH WE DIDNT HAVE TO WAIT 30 FOR THE OTHER HALF OF THE STORY AND WE COULD JUST WATCH AN AD! Overall the app is bad, the stories are bad, and the reviews are just as if not more so as terrible as the app. If you own it un ironically, never reproduce with any other human and spread your genes.

Leap Frog


So I installed this app because I kept seeing it and wanted to know if it would keep my interest for the love of scary books/movies. I installed it and started to read the first story that popped up. In turn I had no choice to read because the app picks what you read. Okay, fine, the story was interesting but it had no ending. I assumed okay that’s the starter story since it ended I can choose one to read now, nope not at all. It just went into another story and yet again it had no ending and brought me to another story, so in turn I’m not finishing because there is not point to be interested in it if it never finishes! I don’t like the leap frog aspect of the app. If you’re going to charge us charge us like you already do weekly or monthly for everything available and not have to watch all the ads. Btw the forcing me to watch a Skype ad every time I want to continue on or look at a pic or video is ridiculous. I hate Skype anyway but that’s another story. Overall this concept is a good one but it really needs to be tweeked a lot before I come back to this app. I will keep it installed for a bit just to see if in the updates things change, if not I will delete and just go back to reading books on my phone.

Was charged after subscription was cancelled...for over a year!!


Every week I was seeing a charge from iTunes for $3.17 and couldn’t figure out what it was. I called iTunes and was informed it was the app Yarn that was charging me $3.17 PER WEEK. iTunes was very helpful in telling me how to shut the subscription down but I was still getting charged. I was looking in my app downloads and purchases and it wasn’t showing Yarn where the hell was this charge continually coming from??? Called iTunes again...and again...and again with them telling me exactly what I was telling them “the app is no longer there, you’re not purchasing anything” what this is, even iTunes couldn’t tell me. After some VERY DEEP DIGGING we found it...connected to a very old iTunes account for my daughter, who hasn’t had an iPhone in a year!!! Do we want our money back? Yes!! Do we know that’s a fight we won’t win? Yes!! I just want to help those of you who are thinking of getting this app, make sure you realize what you’re getting involved with.
