    Amazing app!!!

    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!!!

    An Irritating Issue

    Hey Wattpad! I've been using your app for a year now, and I loved it until you removed the one thing that I needed most when using this app; the activity icon. Whenever I forgot to save a book to my library, I would go back and look at my activity to see my comment on the book and add it so I wouldn’t lose it again. It really came in handy, and I did see the post made about trying to make it safer for uncomfortable readers and authors who are afraid of being exposed with their feed. Though, I think it would be better if you let the person see THEIR feed, and nobody else’s. Now, I see how this may not be needed, but I assure you it’s important to me and many others. Just today, I forgot to save one of my favorite books to my library, though I didn’t feel the need to since I was not going to be clicking off the book, and since it just brought me back to the book whenever it was off the app. Please, I’ve been looking for the book everywhere, and I know I’ve left a lot of comments on it, MY comments which I can’t even view. I can’t even remember the name or what tags the book had, so please if this ever happens again, if I forget, I want something that will help me make sure that I can find it again. Thank you.

    PLEASE FIX!!!!!

    I rarely ever rate an app only ones that have impacted me in a really strong way. This app has saved me from boredom and has helped me be in a better perspective than I have been in a very long time. I have currently been on wattpad for 3 years and have enjoyed it ever since, of course, there have been some glitches and a multitude of ads yet I have never been that bothered by them, until the newest update. While getting out of school I had wanted to get on wattpad and read a few of my favorite books and I didn’t have any internet at school so I decided to go offline seeing as I could always go offline to read them and then I get the notification that I cannot read offline UNLESS I get the premium upgrade which was never in the original app (before all of the new updates), I understand that you app makers need to make money but your app was made to be FREE and to read books for FREE yet it always came down to making more money and ruining a perfectly good app. I had never thought that wattpad would go down this path and possibly never return from it but I hope that the creators of this app can change wattpad for the better and not for the worse like other apps I have encountered.

    One teensy problem.

    Off the bat, the app is amazing. I’ve had it for three years. Over the years, I’ve read amazing books and some that weren’t so amazing. I met some amazing authors and a few friends I didn’t know I would meet. It was an online library and hang out that I never knew I actually needed. My friends and I have all collaborated on stories or written each other nice messages on our message board. We all got to answer and write them, except me. I since then deleted the app and haven’t re-downloaded it until a few months back to see if I would get the email to verify my account and allow me to post messages or reply to messages on my board. Nothing. I tried changing my email to see if it was wrong or going to the help page the creators so kindly offered. I checked everything, did everything the help said. Still nothing. This has been going on for two months. TWO MONTHS and still nothing. I don’t understand if it’s just me or if others have experienced this. It’s getting very annoying to the point where I might cry of frustration because of how infuriating this gets. I am sick and tired of waiting and trying and repeating a whole cycle I shouldn’t have to repeat if it was that simple to fix a posible bug. Again, I don’t know if others experienced this or if it’s just me but I’m exhausted from waiting around almost an hour to see if the email got sent or not. Please fix this or at least read this review and say something to make me feel better.

    No more offline readings, why?!?!?!?

    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?
