Fixes to make app useful for visually impaired users
This app is not very accessible for visually impaired users who require using Apple’s VoiceOver function. Please make the necessary changes to allow us access to all the apps functions and tools. I love reading and very much enjoy this app but it needs to be a lot more visually impaired friendly. Please take my request into consideration because I'm positive I cannot be the only user with these issues and concerns. And in an attempt to brive you in to making the necessary adjustments for us, I provide the assurance that you will gain many if not hundreds more users with this issue being fixed and this app being at the visually impaired community's reach. I know I've recommended it to many of my acquaintances and friends and would be more than glad to keep spreading the word to other fellow reading enthusiasts. Thank you for taking the time to read this very long complaint/request. Hope to see changes soon and thank you for caring and creating a great platform for readers and writers alike.
This app is very nice and I personally like it as a reading app, but I generally don’t like it when it have to login in your account. It’s a basic thing and I know that because I’m not dumb, but connect the devices that aren’t a computer with any device. I started my account on a ipad and I wanted to write a book. Though I soon to realize you have to write it on a computer. I was okay with that because I have a computer and some apps prefer that, but I forgot my password (since it was a long time) and I tried multiple times to login. I finally clicked “forgot password?” And they did email me the link, but almost all of it say it couldn’t find my account. Then, I received a working link and I wrote in my new password and when I came back to my computer—typing the same password I wrote on the received email— they told me I did something wrong. I don’t know why it won’t let me in which I want the developing team to fix because when I try to do it, they would either give me a new account (which I didn’t wanted) or I did something wrong with the signing in part.
Current reads sect. & switching from on phone and computer
I have a problem with how the current reads section is set up. I have a hard time figuring out which one has been updated. (I know it says which one in the tab that is notifications but it’d be helpful here as well.) It shows which book that you’re currently reading vertically and shows (too many) recommendations underneath, but it doesn’t show that there has been a portion updated on any of them. If you were to show just the current reads and the update status on each of the books horizontally with more detail it would be easier to go back to another book that you were reading in the past and read the updated parts. Kinda like how Wattpad has theirs set up but in your own way per se? On another note! I also have noticed that when I am reading on my phone and want to continue reading a book on my computer it looses where I was at. Either completely starting from the beginning of the book or from the beginning of the page that I am on.
Enjoyable With A Few Issues
I learned about Inkitt through an author I follow on WattPad. While I enjoy not having limitations on Inkitt and being able to find and read stories for mature audiences, whereas WattPad inhibits this, there are some issues. First off, I’m not getting notifications. I’ve checked everything within my devices settings; It’s the app. Then when you go into Inkitt and check notifications when someone posts a new chapter of a story, it says it’s unavailable, takes you to the beginning of the previous chapter, and you have to scroll down and click “next chapter” to read that new chapter. While it’s not a huge deal, it’s inconvenient. Also, discussions and comments on stories are hard to decipher. It’d be nice if what the person is commenting on was automatically quoted. All that said, I’d like to see some fixes, but it’s a good tool for readers and writers alike and I believe, due to issues I’ve seen develop on WattPad, that Inkitt is possibly more secure.
I love this app
Inkitt is really great for authors and writers. They respond well to any concerns readers and writers have and they actually do what needs to be done instead of waiting around like Wattpad. Inkitt is safer for writers as well since they combat any sort of plagiarism unlike Wattpad. The writing lay out isn’t complicated. Inkitt has clear guidelines for everyone to follow and they email you letting you know if you aren’t following some. The only thing I complain about (and why it hasn’t got the 5 stars) is because the IOS app still has a long way to go with giving notifications for anything you write or read. It’s also hard to see the full reviews of your work. So if you want all that you’ll need to go to the web page because you can see and do everything easily there. Other than that it’s a great app and you should definitely try out
Lack of updating
I’ve been using this app for a very long time now, very loyal reader. It’s a great way to read on the go or whatever the case may be HOWEVER, I do have an issue with unfinished books. I don’t really understand why a book that hasn’t been updated in over 6 months is still available to read regardless of how good it may be. It’s frustrating to start a book I can’t finish, or put one in my library just to sit there for however long waiting for an update. Rarely do I comment on these things or write reviews but this is so frustrating it makes me want to stop reading on the app. I like to finish books. Easily can finish a 300+ page book in a day. My opinion, get rid of the books that haven’t been updated so better ones can be acknowledged and read.
Not much to not like
I enjoy reading on this app and I enjoy most of the books I’ve found but I do have a few adjustments for the app that could be made. These could be pet peeves of mine but I’d really like to be able to flip the pages in the books instead of having to scroll and I don’t like the layout of the books when they’re in your library, I find it easier if they’re in columns or rows and for some way/notification on the book itself to see when its updated. I’d also like a way to be able to easily find completed/good books. I’ve found some gems but only when I search deep and for awhile. Other than these things that I’d change I enjoy reading with Inkitt, I think it’s a great app that gives writers good opportunities.
HAS AMAZING POTENTIAL BUT...
There are a few things I would like to voice. When I @ my readers who are commenting on my book, It would be easier if the suggestions for @ names would pop up, like wattpad so to speak. Also commenting on sections (paragraphs) individually would be helpful as well, feedback and general interaction means a lot to me. It helps me improve my writing skills and connect with the community. Lastly EDITING. I can’t edit my book when using the mobile version which is CRUCIAL. The access from the app is easier compared to going online and re-logging in when I already have the app version on my phone. Thank you. I love inkitt because you don’t limit us, but I also need reassurance that these errors can be fixed.
I love it but a couple things...
So far I am enjoying Inkitt and the books that are on the platform. However, there are couple things I’ve noticed that could use some fixing. For some reason, the paging is a little off when I’m moving on to a new chapter, sometimes it will bring me back a chapter or even more than just one. Another thing I would suggest, please show me my progress in my books in the library. It confuses me when I’m trying to figure out which books I’ve already read. Just a side note as well, it would be helpful if there was a way to know if an author updated a book so I could continue it. Other than that, it’s pretty great so far. :)
I like it
I really do enjoy that app and I like that it keeps word count and all but I am thinking on writing a book and I decided to check it out and just do a little playing around but when I tried adding a photo to be my background on my cover it says that it’s too small. Does the pixels have to be 500 x 800 because it’s kinda hard trying to find the exact number. Can you help me with that? Maybe you guys should make a photo editing app where we can get one of our own, adjust it, edit it and all that then download it as our cover. Also this is actually way better than Wattpad.
I love it, but some issues.
I came from Wattpad because most of the authors have moved onto this site, at first I like it, a lot. But now i’m having issues. First of all, when I hit “next chapter” it’ll be bring me back to the current chapter I am and have to scroll all the way down and hit the next button all over again to move onto the next chapter. I also would like a different lay out of my library. It’s hard to navigate, columns or rows would be nicer then sliding side to side. I’m also having trouble removing books I’ve already finished or started and aren’t gonna read anymore out of my library. Please fix some of these things! I really love the books and authors on here and would hate to find another app!
IM IN LOVE! Everyday I look forward to opening up Inkitt to see what’s new and what I’ll enjoy. This is one of my top 5 go to apps every single day. I love to read and I have other reading apps but this is probably my top favorite one to open up. If your a reader from Wattpad, Inkitt is very similar except it’s mainly just different writers. Another is there is no Beta Program blocking’s you from reading anything that you would have to pay for. I found Inkitt after reading some comments on Wattpad and fell in love with this App. Both I recommend and a lot of my friends would agree I just think I love Inkitt even more.
I enjoy it but...
I haven’t been on this app long. I’ll be honest. I do love it and how simple it is to find books that I’ll enjoy and being able to read them any time. However, I don’t really like that I can’t swipe to the side instead of scrolling up. I also find it very annoying that every time I open a book, my phone tells me that in app purchases are not allowed. Considering the books are free to read, I find this very odd and it’s annoying to have that pop up every time I just want to read the book and have some headspace. I’m not saying this is something that changes my view on the app, but it is a little frustrating to deal with.
This app has made my life a little easier when it comes to finding new books online. I usually have to use my internet to find new books to read, but having to keep so many tabs open just to remember which ones I wanted to read and going to multiple sites is annoying after a while. I love using this app because I can just open and close it and keep reading when I want. I also like that it gives you the option to download the stories you’re reading and it keeps track of your history.
App is weird
I learned of Inkitt through authors on Wattpad, and I was excited to use it as a new source of stories. At first the app ran smoothly and I had no problems reading my stories and changing chapters through the menus. However, after a few weeks the app became sort of unresponsive and when I tried to access the menu the app refused to open it. There are also times where the app randomly decides to open the menu and display all the information and I’m not able to close it. The app would be great if those issues could be fixed, since the selection of stories available are pretty solid. However, the problems with the app’s issues have really ruined the experience for me.
