Tap by Wattpad App Reviews

Advertising and Loading

So I published a story called The Harp and The Devil.. But it’s not showing up when I tell my friends to search it.. And they should add an advertising feature or something so new writers can get their story out there.. How else will people read it? But the actual app itself is pretty good!

If I might make a suggestion

Since you fixed the subscription so that we can do more without paying, I’ve had a lot of fun with this app. I enjoy reading stories, and I especially love writing my own. I don’t mind waiting to get passes because it helps to build suspense. The jems are annoying, but if you're willing to read certain stories you can earn some. A few things I'd like to suggest are the ability to add audio to our stories, and a way we can show appreciation, such as liking/voting, or commenting like on watpad. A simple tap number isn't really enough for me, people still could've read my story and not liked it that much. So if you could add in those things I'd really appreciate it.

In app choices- please remove

I like the idea, but I have a constant problem with in app purchases for responses. It completely takes me out of the story, which annoys me. If I get to decide what happens, it only makes sense that I decide on a path. Please remove only this feature.


It so interesting and really cool I love this app


This app provides me with entertaining and gripping stories in a whole new way. It’s like the thrill of watching a really good horror movie, but in a text. Terrific. I love the creativity that people put into this to provide such a fun way to experience that thrill element. A truly fantastic app. Well done. I totally recommend this, and even if you don’t download this one you can look up this stuff of YouTube and you can get a wide range of results.

Great app to pricey

I love this app the suspense really gets me and I do be terrified and scared but the wait for tickets and price is too high😿. But am a big fan of watt pad so I will continue to use


This is awful. The stories are okay, I guess, but when you first get the app they make you read some story, you have no say in. You can’t even exit out. Not even when the story ends, you only have the choice to continue to the next part. You can’t look at the photos or listen to the phone calls unless you pay money, which they ask for a ridiculous amount. I tried to subscribe for a free trail but it wanted my credit card... for a FREE trial. It gives you like so much time to read per hour, and if you want more time you have to pay. You have to pay to read a story you didn’t want to read in the first place.



Hate it.

I don’t want to have to pay for extra features, and that seems to be a very constant thing throughout all chat apps. I love Wattpad, but this is just an extremely bad app.


This is such a good app I love it sooo much it is so worth paying

I can’t pay

I love this app but I hate that when i run out of tickets I have to pay for new ones, and I’m not spending all of my birthday money on text story’s. Maybe add a ticket timer so when I run out of tickets I get more the next day?

Bts Army

Tap is honestly the greatest thing. It keeps me busy when I'm bored and have nothing to do. I especially love the band Kpop Bts so I really enjoyed that there were Bts tap stories. I even made one and am working on three others. Anyways, ppl say they didn't like the stories in the beginning which we had to read. To me actually it didn't bother me that much and they weren't even bad stories. But there is one question or problem I have. Is there a certain way to get your tap stories read cause I have trouble getting ppl to read them while others get many views. I'm just wondering. But overall tap is great and its really fun creating stories! ❤️🤗


Guys come on some people don’t have that much money and why can’t we sign up and do our own instead of reading others look if you want to get people to use this app you have to let them do their accounts instead reading others at the beginning and if you don’t do something about then I’m sticking with Wattpad at less they let make an account

Not bad

Good but it could be better doesn’t matter to me I like it but don’t like it that much but it’s good


When I First got the app, I had to go through a story I didn’t want to read, I had another story I had heard of, although I liked the story, it was so annoying. So I had an ad about North Star. And on the FIRST chapter I was given a choice, “Help Him, or Shy Away” I hadn’t gotten used to the characters so I said shy away. I was given the following Message; “Buy Premium to Unlock this feature and many more” I obviously clicked off, so I tried to tap around it, and maybe somebody else would choose, by default, but no, there was no way I could skip that, so I went to chapter 2 and hen was greeted by another message about what outfit to pick. I clicked around it and nothing was going to happen, that’s when I clicked off and started this review. Note: I was going to use The Seven Day Trial and just end it on the last day, but I didn’t have enough money so it wouldn’t accept my purchase. So Angry.


I am just thoroughly disappointed with this app. I saw a cool looking story on an ad so I decided to download it again. Imagine my excitement when the story presents me with a choice so that I can choose my own ending! Except that I have to have premium. I tried to exit out of the story, maybe find a different one. But there was no button for that. So finally, I gave up and realized that Tap had become another money driven app that only people who pay to win can enjoy.

So much wasted potential

This app could’ve been great. Instead it’s boring and poorly done.

Doesn’t Work

The fact that you have to sit through a story that isn’t even interesting isn’t the worst part. You can click out of it, but, at least with the iPhone X, every time you leave the story, the screen goes black and the app closes. I have tried to get in 4 times and it never worked.

I couldn’t exit

I used to have this app on a different phone and I could exit out of stories, but now that I have downloaded it again to see some of my old works, I can’t because there was no exit to the story in the beginning.


I was very confused on how I get out the story it has now way of telling me but the app I pretty well made pretty good might I say good job Wattpad

Okay, okay!

I remember when Tap wasn’t like this... I mean, you could look at pictures without having to pay and all, But I’m hoping they only did that because of the inappropriate stories always having those pictures, gifs, etc, etc.. Though I just realized... Tap is beginning to becoming like those other text story apps ( I forgot the names so sorry if they are not correct ) like Hooked, or Readit ( ? ) y’know? You HAVE to pay to view this and this and this... And I’ll admit, I was disappointed when they got the new stories that let you choose your ending along with having to pay. I also still kinda like Tap, but I did uninstall it. That’s all for now, - Wuffle


I was reading through a story or whatever, and then.. I have to WAIT 18 minutes just to continue??? Seriously?? Why do I have to pay to read boring stuff anyway...? Wattpad is a great app, but this? It was made only for cash. On Wattpad, there’s ads, but they aren’t in your face. Same for the subscription stuff Wattpad has. That’s why I enjoy it. You can use it without paying. But this requires you to actually pay money to read a chat story that’s probably bad! You can’t use half of the features that the app promotes without having to pay. It’s really bad.


My favorite are the horrors and thrills.

Horrible 🙅🏽‍♀️

The first thing that upset me was that it brought me to this story as soon as I open it app that I didn’t want to read at all and that you have to pay to answer the video call and see the picture, and there is no exit button that i can press to go to a different story and that you have to wait 30 minutes just to get some taps. Tbh I love Wattpad but this need to be better 👎🏽👎🏽

Where do I even start🤦🏽‍♀️

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.




I used to like it but all of a sudden I had limited taps and needed to wait 20 minutes for more. I wrote my own stories but I have no access to them anymore. I deleted the app and reinstalled it. I hate horror but there’s a book that’s automatically there that I wish to skip, but unfortunately I can’t. You can’t exit out of the book and you need to wait an unnecessary long time to tap and get to the end. Disappointing.


This app was ok at first until I had to choose. But when I chose the answer, it said I had to pay $7.99 a month just to chose. That is just a waist of money, no thanks!

This App is so dumb!


I Used To Like It

Okay, so I used to love this app and would play it a lot! Sure, the wait I didn’t like, but I didn’t really care. But with these updates, I have a lot of dislikes. You start with a story that you don’t even choose. On top of that, you have to wait around twenty minutes when you tap a certain amount in the story. Also you cannot click out of it. And I love the pictures! I found that to be amazingly neat. But now you have to pay for something that used to be free. I loved the app, but with theses additions, I honestly suggest not getting it until they change it.

A slippery slope

When this app was first released I had downloaded it and I have to say I actually really enjoyed using it. I had a read through a story featured on tap and then once done with that I was able to read as many stories as I wanted. Because I didn’t have premium I’d have only limited number of taps which wasn’t a big deal to me. That made me only want to come back to the story later on and kept me interested overall. I was also able to fairly easily make a story through tap very quickly and was actually pretty satisfied with it. I had to restart my phone a few months back and I kind of forgot to re-download this one. So I decided to download it again and get back into making stories. However I was aggravated to find how drastically the app had been changed. In order to get to the home button you have to play through a very long story which if you don’t buy the premium for you can’t see videos or photos or even make certain choices in the app, let alone finish the story with one go. I understand why certain features like voice calls video chats and choices in the app, which weren’t features before when I first had this app, required to be paid for. But the fact that photos can’t be shown anymore without you paying is a disgrace. The fact that the opening story within the first 10 messages already starts the importance of having a membership to get through and fully enjoy the stories was a very poor tactic for the team behind this app. If you want people to buy the membership you should at least allow them to get through the tutorial and actually experience the features you pay to unlock without shoving it down our throat’s that we need to pay for it. If you’re not going to let anyone have a taste of something before they pay for it you’re not going to get as many people as you would if you allow them to go through and actually try it. People especially the kids who use this app to read stories are not going to waste eight dollars on something they haven’t tried before and their parents certainly will do that either. My advice in fixing this would be letting the user play the tutorial story with all the features and then afterwords when they try and read other stories with that feature remind them that to unlock them they need to pay for it. I guarantee that once they have actually been exposed to the amazing features added they will be more inclined to buy the membership.

Take away premium!

Some of the story revolves around sounds, pictures, and calls/video calls. I can’t get the premium thing because my mom won’t let me, and I’m broke, and I really want to know the rest of the story, so NO MORE IN-APP PURCHASES! Otherwise this is a really good app. Thank you!

If I could give it a 0 stars I would

I love Wattpad don’t get me wrong, but tap is not what I like. First, why do I have to pay for the extra cool features. Second, I used to like tap because we could make our own tap story, but now we can’t. Third, why do we have to wait 30 minutes, it doesn’t make sense. Fourth, Wattpad is better than this. I’m disappointed Wattpad.


Very good keep it up

How is this game 4.0?

This game is rubbish. If you want good stories go to Wattpad.


Listen, I get the whole subscribing thing to get more passes and diamonds whatever, but I just don’t get why my friends and people that want to read my stories have to make a subscription to see the pictures I post. I think it’s ridiculous you’re making someone pay for something that you didn’t put into the app, and that creators spend time working on that get no gains from it whatsoever

It was ok, but I found some issues

The advertising obviously but I found a problem with the billing for premium. I thought I had stopped the billing for the app, because the bill hadn’t came up in months. However this morning, I found it there. I don’t know if it was a once a month thing, but I deleted the app months ago.


i downloaded it to read north star, and then it gave me a choice. i rapped one and it kept putting me on the purchase page. $8 a month FOR THIS?! who would spend that much when you can literally read so many other better ones for free? crappy.


This game has so many flaws such as WHY DOES IT MAKE YOU GO THROUGH A STORY YOU ARE NOT ABLE TO GET OUT OF WHEN YOU FIRST ENTER THE APP?!? Also everything interesting IS UNDER PREMIUM THAT COST $7.99 A MONTH and I am sorry that some of us are on a tight budget and came here to release some stress from family matters!!!! I MIGHT BE OVER REACTING BUT IT ALSO MAKES YOU WAIT 20 MINS TO CONTINUE ON WITH THE STORY!!!! And guess what you are able to get rid of the 20 minute wait but IT IS UNDER PREMIUM!!!?!?!?! I came to this app to read and get my mind of things but I have just been greeted with a ton of stuff that COST MONEY!!! I am sorry but this app at least for me is a waste of time!!! DO NOT GET THIS APP UNLESS YOU ARE RICH!!!!

I hate this app!

I can’t with this app! I’ve tried multiple times and gave it multiple chances, hoping that there would be updates and it will get better. But each time I download it, everything just gets worse and worse! I feel like there’s more advertisement with every update! Adding pictures and videos is cool, but having to pay in order to look at them is completely and utterly unnecessary! Plus, I can’t even get out of a story once I’m in it. I’ve tried pressing the arrow or the option it gives me to go back, but it never works! I love Wattpad, but this app is terrible! I highly suggest switching to apps like yarn and hooked.


This app was great at first. The stories are amazing; but in order to see the pictures and continuously read a story you have to get premium. I can’t afford that so I miss out on some of the story and have to wait. Please make that stuff free guys it’s sad.


It works great but I have to wait 19 minutes every time



Far below expectations

So I got the app because I have and love Wattpad and I’ve heard of apps like this before that were good so I had high expectations, but it is awful. I’m not even going to start with the intro story because other reviews describe that, but when I finally got to pick a story, I started reading it and then it gave me a ‘choose what you want to do’ so I picked one and it said I needed premium to do it, but I can’t buy premium, and I can’t click out of the story till I finish it so basically I’m stuck in the story unless I buy premium. They shouldn’t let you click on those types of stories unless you already have premium or at least warn me. I just have to say, find a different message stories app.

A Waste Of Money!

This app is the worst app I could ever download! I mean, it could be pretty good if you have the money for it... only like a quarter into the story it asked me for a monthly “FREE” premium that is eight dollars a month and I’m not paying for that. I like reading stories but not paying for them! I know the creator wants money, but you don’t do it that way by putting high prices on just premiums for monthly payment! Why do you need to pay money to choose your ending! It’s so stupid! I mean you already have ads, that should make you money. Never download this app unless you have the money for it. It’s a good app, but a complete waste of money.

Honestly wasn’t as good as I thought

It was honestly okay..... until I couldn’t get out of the story! They told me I had to pay premium if I wanted to finish! And I didn’t even want to read the story in the first place!! You can’t choose what you want to read. I honestly would not recommend this app unless you want to pay money.


This app was a let down. If I tried to get back into the app it would just bring me right back to the beginning of the first story I read and I’d have to read it all over again.

It’s okay? I guess

Okay I love this app I love the stories there very intertanging and awesome but one problem the prices are very expensive. And you have to wait so fricken long. So at least some things free? Like phone calls In the chats and maybe at 3 tickets every 2 hours or one but yea that’s my review I put 1 star but imma put 3 now...

Came exit

So I had this app a few months back and deleted it because it was using up my space. So I decided to download it back because I was bored, but when I got on the app it wouldn't let me exit the freaking story YOU GUYS are making me read and it is really pissing me off. So maybe put an exit button on the stupid story's or something and maybe this app won't be a complete waste of space.

I don’t know how to feel about this

You can read the story’s but you can’t see pictures or answer phones calls from the games without paying $7.99 a month for it. And if you want a free trial you have to download another app. I don’t really like this app.
