Before I got this app I read a handful of reviews the all seemed pretty bad but I wanted to try it out anyway, I wish I didn’t.
At first it was going great, it did take a long time to load but overall it was ok. I looked through a bunch of stories and they all seemed pretty good, I chose my first one to be romance. I have to say, the story was pretty cool, I loved it. I was reading it and a pop up came and ask me to chose my next reply, I thought that was pretty cool (at first.) I clicked on my reply and it took me to the premium signup. At first I thought “Maybe this is like ‘Episode’” (if you don’t know what I’m talking about, basically some ‘Episode’ stories have ‘Gems’ and you use ‘Gems’ to “buy” things choices in the story you are reading.) I clicked back and chose the other option, and it took me ,once again, to the premium signup. I decided to just use the free trial, but you have to pay for that too? I know most apps do this but I really don’t see the reason for putting “free” in it then. (In the ‘Episode’ app you can use the free trial for FREE.) I thought it was stupid so I clicked out of the signup page and went back to the story, of course there wasn’t and option to skip it so I wanted to exit out of the story. I looked in the corner where there should be an ‘X’ but it wasn’t. I scrolled to the top of the page and there wasn’t no exit button. I exit out of the app and entered once again, only to find myself at the signup page. At this point I was annoyed, I went back to the story and looked again everywhere for the exit button and once again I couldn’t find it. This is honestly stupid, it’s basically forcing me to pay to be able continue then to exit. I very disappointed in this, I mainly got it because it was created by Wattpad. I understand that they many need the money, but forcing the reader to pay to be able to continue it very unnecessary . I’m sorry but I think I’ll just stick with ‘Wattpad’ and ‘Episode’ instead.
