Okay, I just wanna start out by saying this app was in my ads almost daily. I thought about downloading it multiple times, but figured I wouldn't have much time to read anyway. Finally, I was convinced & decided i'd try it. I loved it at first, and by "at first", i mean the first 3 minutes. Then, out of no where, the app crashed. I waited a minute & got back on, & was getting into the story(which btw, i think the story was very entertaining & well written), then it crashed again. After 3 more times of that I was done with it. Also, I don't like how you have to wait 15 minutes randomly throughout. What is the point of that? I read for 2 minutes & have to stop in the middle of it for a 15 minute intermission? I'm suppose to stop in the middle of reading to be told that I can buy a 15 dollar subscription if I don't wanna wait 15 minutes every 2 minutes to continue my story? No thanks! Do you even know how long it took me to get to the 15 minute intermission mark without the app crashing a million times!? I get the app has to make money. Which is why not seeing the images dosen't bother me or other little things like that. I mean you could change it to where you have to be a member to write stories, see images, choose your own stories, things like that. Honestly, the stories are so good, people might actually not mind paying! But to stop the story every 2 minutes seems selfish & frankly, annoying. Theres plenty more reading apps, I can just download one of those.
Good but annoying
This app is one of my favorite apps on my phone. I’ve read many stories on it and so far all of them have been super interesting. I (personally) like the horror ones. But their are a few things that I think they should change about this app. 1st of all I think it’s stupid that you have to wait 15 Minutes during a story. And sometime the 15 min thingy will pop up at random parts in the story and it’s really annoying. I think they should change this so that it’s only like 5 min and it doesn’t pop up in the middle of the stories. 2nd of all to see any pictures or to skip the 15 min you have to get “Hooked Unlimited” which cost $15 for a month. I still think they should have this but not for EVERY picture because usually the pictures are there to move the story along but when you can’t see them you have no idea what’s happening. Other then these things I think the app it pretty good and has great stories.
I had at first deleted the app about 2-3 years ago since it was boring and I didn’t like how you had to pay to see the pictures. No biggie. I then repeatedly see a bunch of ads specifically about “Trevor and the Virgin” and all the ones about the whole “don’t let mom in” and “grab the mysterious shotgun that you never knew about”. I got curious and decided, “hey. Some of the stories look cool.” So I downloaded it and it asks me if I want to choose between TWO genres of stories: horror or romance. Keep in mind it’s almost 4 am and I really don’t want to be reading horror right now and I’m not in the mood for romance so I HAVE to choose one of them. I decide romance and I was getting ready to pick my story that I was going to read. I get in he app and it instantly puts me in some video. I was watching Trevor and the Virgin. Not the best choice but whatever. Literally 8 seconds in it says “You can either wait 15 minutes or pay $7-8 a month with a thirty day free trial.” I’m not waiting FIFTEEN MINUTES to watch a FIFTEEN MINUTE VIDEO. I don’t see the point in that. I really think that you should be allowed to pick what you want to read and have more options for the different types of genres. Sure, horror and romance probably are the most popular but not EVERYONE likes it. I also think that the whole fifteen minute wait time or pay up is absurd.
Why the 15 minute break?
I have several complaints about this app. First of all, you only get to view the story for like 2 minutes. After around two minutes, you have to wait FIFTEEN to be able to read again. Also, to skip the break, you have to purchase a membership. I am NOT such a big fan of that. Please either decrease the duration of the break or just get rid of it as a whole. Secondly, you have to get the full version to view the pictures, and that's around $11. Seriously, $11 just to view pictures? I WILL NOT accept that. Decrease the price of the full version, please, and allow everyone to see the pictures without purchasing the full version. Third and foremost, the text messages appear too slowly. This means that instead of viewing like 2 minutes of texts, I'm looking at around 1:40. Please increase the pace at which the text messages appear. Short summary: I have several complaints. First of all, you only get to view the story for 2 minutes, then it's a 15 minute break. To skip the break, you have to purchase a membership. Secondly, you have to purchase the full version to view pictures, and the full version is around $11, which I WILL NOT accept. Third, the messages appear too slowly, decreasing the amount of messages that I could potentially view.
Slow and you cant see the pictures TL,DR at the end
Ok so at first I downloaded this app so me and my friend could read scary stories at first it was cool but one thing I noticed is it didn't let me pick the story so that was a bit annoying because I saw A ad for the app and the story they were telling was the one I wanted to read and secondly it's very slow the text messages take forever to show up on the screen I would like for that to be fixed 3rd of all you have to buy the full version to see the pictures so me and my friend just made up the pictures because we are odd people lol 😂 but seriously the full version was like 11$ and I'm not paying that much for an app that I'm leaving a good amount of complaints on also in the middle of the story it said we had to wait 14 minutes to continue reading why tho that's so stupid lastly the stories take forever to get to the point like I like some suspense but seriously 😒 me and my friend didn't even find out what was so dangerous about brad before it stopped I'm sorry I wouldn't recommend this app it's slow and over all not that great TL,DR the app is slow you can't see the pictures too much suspense and it stopped in the middle of the story and said we had to wait 14 minutes also didn't let me pick the story do not recommend
I wanna start this by saying the best part about this app was the writing tool. It was wayyyy better before you had to delete it. You could see a part of people’s minds and explore way further, and actually dive into the pit of reading. But of course like every good app, someone found a way to ruin some of the fun. If it was brought back I would be extreeemely happy and rate this app five stars DEFINITELY. But sadly, if you don’t listen to the reviews and bring back the writing tool that EVERYONE enjoys, I’m uninstalling the app. Face it, everyone loved writing stories and there were really good player made stories out there. Everyone loves the write a story feature and everyone would rate five stars more likely if the writing tool was brought back. Don’t let my couple minutes of my life be wasted on this comment and actually make a change about something that EVERYONE misses. You would get way better reviews and I will recommend it to all of my friends, because most of them deleted it because they wrote stories. We had a group circle where each of us would write a story of our own and show t to the others. You would be doing EVERYONE a favor by adding the writing tool back. We all miss it. Thanks for reading this and thank you for your time.
I understand why they call it hooked!
These stories keeps you so entertained it’s unbelievable. I always find myself going to this app to read the next story. I also really like that some are a couple of “chapters” so it draws you in more to see what is going to happen next. There has not been one story yet that I haven’t smiled, chuckled or was shocked while reading these on my phone. I do not understand why people gave a 1 or 2 star review. Reviews are for how entertaining or good an app is, not to bash them for having to wait 15 mins to keep reading on. Honestly 15 mins isn’t that long, and if you really don’t want to wait, then pay for the subscription. Yes it’s $15 a month but come on people, this IS a business and they need to make money somehow so they can keep growing. I personally don’t want to pay for the subscription either so I just wait the 15 mins, it’s really not that bad. Honestly. I secretly like it because it forces me to put down my phone because I’m so hooked to this app! Thanks guys!
I WANT CREATE YOUR OWN STORYS BACK
I just recently downloaded this app, and I was looking forward to making my own chat stories. I was already brainstorming ideas (I know, I’m a nerd)! But when I discovered there was no option for that, I went here, to the App Store, to investigate. I read some reviews, and I noticed that some people were complaining about the lack of making your own stories, and that they wished that option was back. Well, me to! I really wanted to have the freedom of writing my own thing for people to read and enjoy. I am pretty sure (from reading the reviews) that other people want the freedom as well. Bringing back the make your own story option would make my Hooked experience much more happy. I am only able to give three stars for no freedom of making chat stories, and the fact that I am a little salty about this change of what I thought would be a more creative and free app game (I digress, I digress). If the Hooked team decides to bring back the make your own chat story option back, I would be much more happy and delighted. Thank you!
Great idea, but...
Ok, ill admit I was hooked when the ad came up in my favorite game, Run Race 3D. But I was not hooked AT ALL this time. And yes, it was a great idea to make an app like this, but this is ridiculous! I was in the middle of my first video, and I only got to watch 15 seconds of it and then a big pop-up appears saying I have to wait 14 minutes along with 53 seconds. So about 15 minutes. If I’m going to have to wait 15 minutes to watch 15 seconds of a video, I’m just going to buy my own romance and horror books and movies. I might as well delete the app. I will keep the app for now, but if you don’t do something about this stupid “wait 15 minutes for 15 seconds” thing. Because this is ridiculous. Either get rid of the time thing, or make the books and videos even with the time range. All I wanted was a few chills down my spine, but I guess that isn’t going to happen. I do not recommend this to any of my friends and family, including you. I feel guilty saying this about such an amazing idea, but it’s just the truth. I look forward to your response and latest update. Everybody who agrees, dump hooked and get the app READIT. Sincerely, LMS
Just got and already have problems
I literally just downloaded the app and started playing a video. First off you have two choice, scary or romantic. I chose romantic because I wanted to see what there was. You don’t even get a choice of the story you watch and you can’t change it to scary after it’s already started. Then randomly not even 15 seconds into the video another “free 7 day trial and after that it’s $4.99 a month” ad shows up. It’s not even a minute in only 12 seconds and the video keeps playing while you sit through the wait time which I wouldn’t mind but come on 12 second in that’s a little much at least make it like a minute and give us the options of what story we want like I really don’t want to watch “Trevor and the Virgin” like not my thing. Then it won’t even let me play the video after the wait time and the “free trial” ad keeps popping up. I was really excited about this app but there is no choices and you can’t change your decision not everyone wants to see the same genre everytime like I like romance but now I’m in the mood to read/watch something scary and there is no way to change it.
I downloaded Hooked a while back because I loved to write stories and wanted to try text stories. I absolutely ADORED this app and the wonderful story-writer it had, but lately Hooked has been giving me so many frustrating problems that I can’t WAIT to be rid of it. They claim ‘follow the steps in the app’ for exporting stories; I have searched EVERYWHERE in this app for a story exporting tool (so I can switch my stories over to Tap), low and behold, I have not found it. There are even some stories that I MYSELF have written that I cannot even access because the app crashes EVERY SINGLE TIME I TRY. So hurray, unless this is yet another bug they need to fix, I’m gonna lose the work I put into my stories because this darn thing can’t even run properly. Not to mention beforehand when actually writing the stories, there were so many occasions of the writing-tool bugging out and not letting me delete duplicated chapters or rearrange character names and colors. This was a fun app but now it’s just broken. My advice? Forget about Hooked and switch to Tap. They at least program it COMPETENTLY.
I don’t really understand the logic behind this decision. Why on earth would you make an option where readers can create their own stories, and then delete it afterwards? What was the point of giving users that opportunity if you were just going to take it away? I know it might seem like I’m overreacting, but as an aspiring writer, I think I have every right to be as upset as I am. I’m sure there are thousands of users who agree. Either give users the option to write or don’t. But I don’t really find it fair to take away such a huge feature. If you regret making that option, that’s on you. But to just suddenly take it away and delete all of the stories that users have probably spent a decent amount of time creating isn’t right. That’s what made this app so different and fun. But now it’s like any other chat story app— worse, actually, considering the circumstances. But hey, the stories that were left are still pretty decent, so I’ll give an extra star for that. But otherwise, my overall rating is a solid two stars until this situation is fixed.
I downloaded Hooked before when it only had stories on it and I actually made a few of my own. But then I had to delete it for storage sake. I saw so many ads for it and how it has “videos” now and I was really intrigued. So, I downloaded it because I thought I’d give it a try. I started up the app and it asked me if I like scary or romantic (I chose romantic, obviously) and it started playing the most popular video. I think it was called “Trevor and the Virgin”? Something like that. So, the video played...and then it stopped after 15 SECONDS and told me that I had to wait 15 MINUTES before I could continue watching OR I could buy a subscription to the app. I would understand if it was after each episode that I had to wait, but 15 SECONDS into ONE episode?! No thank you! As a now college student, I don’t have the ability to pay for something like this. When I had it before, there was absolutely NO MONEY involved. Now just because they added “videos”, we have to pay for it? Nope, I’m good. I enjoyed all the stories and the app before, but now I apparently need to have money to enjoy it now. That helps, thanks.
Great App But......
.... I love the app it is great. I really love that you can get it and read stories for free that are decently long. The stories are addicting, dramatic, scary, and mysterious. I love reading them especially The Watcher and Clowns, but I wish there was a in app way where you could write your own stories. Like you guys could add an editor button and a New Story button because I have some great ideas for some stories. So this app would be five star if it had a edit button. So please editors of this app please, please, please add an editor mode. Just think how many more people downloading your app if someone told their friend, “Hey do you have any Romantic, Horror, Sci-fi, it mystery ideas. If so Download Hooked, so you can make your own stories.” If you do end up adding this feature thank you. Sincerely, - A Hooter
Lost me already
So I saw the ads like everyone else and thought Trevor and the virgin story looked pretty appealing. I’ve never had this app before so I downloaded it and in that processed I read the reviews so I was already skeptical about it. Well then I try to give them a shot I open the app and it asks me if I want romantic or scary. I click romantic hints cause I got on their for the Trevor and the virgin story that looked cute. Right after I clicked romantic it brought me to the show and started playing on its own. Shows him knocking on the door and her opening it and her continuing to say “Romeu has it Trevor has the biggest you know what” then it pauses and pops up an add saying to skip adds it’s only $4.99 a week. A FREAKING WEEK! So many other apps have more to offer I can watch 200 movies on Netflix for less than that. I tried to skip that and then it has a timer over the video as the video kept playing counting down from 5 so not only are they asking way to much but they also allowed me to only wast 15 second probably not even of the video so not enough for me to get hooked or care to pay at all. So it’s a waste for me
