This app has everything for a reader or writers needs!! You can write all your stories, with as many chapters as you want!! You can also create your own cover for your book as well. The writing portion of the app is very simple to use. With the ability to add videos or pictures at the top of each chapter, you can give the readers a better picture of your story, and they have the tools you see on any writing software. From which side you want to write on, to italics, bold, or underlined. For the readers, there are many genres to choose from!! Fantasy, Fanfiction, etc. it your choice. you can also change the font style, color of the page and, size of the font for you various needs. You also have a personal library that no one can see except you! So you can organize your books in any way, but, when you read a book it appears at the top of your library as your recently read. You can also make reading lists on your profile for others to enjoy. If a book isn’t finished writing, the notifications for when the author updated the book, are straight forward, they tell you when they updated and what chapter they updated, so you don’t have to look or reread to make sure your not reading the same chapter twice. I love this app, and I hope if you haven’t tried it, you should!!!
I have been reading in and fan of Wattpad for 4-5 years now and I have seen them go through major changes, some changes are fine with me but the current change is just upsetting. The moment I woke up in the morning and I went to check on Wattpad for updates in my library, but only to see that now we all have to pay to read offline which was shocking and terrifying to me. I feel like I won’t be able to be able to read anymore interesting stories written or shared by others for the sake of their passion or entertainment (especially while I am going to school using underground transportation). I feel like not being able to read some of our books offline is just a nightmare!!! I understand why Wattpad did the coin system and the ads, but getting rid of the offline reading is just a nightmare! Although, I also read when I have Wi-Fi at home and school and there would be ads which I don’t mind, but now when I am offline I won’t be able to access to my favorites while traveling underground (literally no service) then what? Maybe I should quit Wattpad for a long while and just focus on school which is getting more harder and stressful. Mind you, Wattpad is my source of stress reliever and happy times (plus it was my favorite reading app out of all the others I have experienced with), but now I will just steer clear from Wattpad. Who knows? I might just be back soon or later?
Wattpad has been on every handheld device I’ve owned since I created an account five years ago. I can honestly say that this app was my favorite app hands down until recently. Yes, I still love and use Wattpad but I don’t spend nearly as much time reading on there as I used to. This is due to the ads and the update with premium accounts. I don’t mind ads at all as that is how apps are kept free but it seems like I get an ad after every single chapter and I’m constantly asked to go premium. With the change of the logo recently as well, I feel Wattpad is in a different place than it was when I joined 5 years ago but not in a good way. We need to move forward but not so much so that it becomes an entirely different thing. There have always been ads and I don’t expect ads to be wiped out completely but it is ridiculous how often they pop up, I also find it quite obnoxious that I am asked to go premium every single time I open the app. It is safe to say that Wattpad has become more of a money making operation than one that values its writers and readers. I don’t think it is much to ask to reduce the amount of ads a little bit and try to make the app about the people using it again. I’m still going to use this app but I have resorted to other FanFiction websites and apps as it is not nearly as enjoyable as it used to be. I do hope you can take both our opinions into consideration more directly. Thank you.
I always look forward to going to wattpad every day to read and write. I currently have a book published and another one in the works. This app is great, except for one thing. I don’t know if it is a glitch or if it is supposed to happen, but everyone’s message board posts blow up my notifications. At first I didn’t mind it, thinking it was just a glitch and in the next few days it would be fixed and everything would go back to normal. But now, I think it’s been doing this for maybe a month (I actually don’t really know). All the message board notifications have been preventing me from seeing comments and votes on my actual story and updates from my favorite stories. This really bothers me. I put a new story out about three weeks ago, and it has a very low number of votes and comments compared to my other story. I honestly don’t know if it is all the message board notifications or if everybody is less active because school has started again. Even I have ignored all of my notifications some days because I didn’t want to go through the thousands of notifications just from people posting on their own message boards. So I’m wondering if other people are doing the same as me and ignoring it overall, leading them to not reading and commenting as they used to... I’m definitely not saying I’m thirsty for votes, but this even prevents me from reading. Thank you for reading, I hope it made sense...!
I love the app and have been using it for almost 5 years now. I haven’t noticed any bugs in the new update so far, except for sometimes when I comment it will tell me that I’m not logged in when I clearly am. The only way to fix it is to log out and back in again. This has been happening for at least a year now. Other than that, the latest updates have been awful. The newest one that moved the message board into the notifications is horrible. I logged onto my account and found 700 notifications that was just message board. I had to scroll through the entire thing just to pick out a handful of notifications that I actually wanted to see. It would be amazing if Wattpad could have a filter option that would show only comment notifications or only vote notifications. That way the process of searching for the notifs I want to see will be much more convenient. Or simply move the notifications for the message board into the news feed and leave it out of the notifs tab completely. One other thing that is incredibly annoying is when I’m scrolling through my own book and ads will pop up in between chapters. I understand ads popping up on other user’s books, but it would make the entire creative process much easier and faster for me and others if ads didn’t show up when scrolling through our own books. Other than those suggestions, the app is wonderful and has been a wonderful creative outlet for me! Thank you!
