    Reading works by major authors is great but sometimes you just want to plunge into the world of some lesser-known indy sci-fi writer and discover a completely new point of view. InKitt's enormous database offers access to 1000's of such creative minds.

    I’m an inkitt writer who started on wattpad but wanted to branch out. Being so familiar with one app I was scared and hesitant. I like things to be familiar. The inkitt writing app is helpful if you are constantly writing, but it is not necessary. You can edit your works inside the app as well which I appreciate because I enjoy both reading and writing and I would hate to HAVE to switch between apps but here I have the choice. I still use it for when I have a lot of work to do because it is more writing focused. There are a lot of community options and people to interact with. I’m still not totally familiar with it, but over all very pleased so far with how well it works and the fact that my books are being recommended to people, despite them being brand new and having few readers. I will continue to write on the app and read others works

    I love the app and how it lets you download multiple stories for on the go. The artist are amazing and it's helped me publish a lot of stories. I've had no problems with the apps nd it runs smoothly. I recommend it to anyone wanting to publish a story or just read a nice story.
  • Great App but has issues Jan 24, 2020

    By Ms.Mystery*
    I love the stories! I usually do all my reading on this app, but it has bugs that I’ve been dealing with that a super irritating. Sometimes it’ll just completely cut off as I’m reading something and I’ll end up at my home screen. Another issue I’ve been having is that when I go to write comments on a chapter my keyboard will get in the way and I can’t submit and or see the things I’ve written to check for misspellings. There’s also the problem of when an author has an update on your news feed and I click it, it doesn’t take me to the new chapter, it takes me to the previous one. The biggest issue I am currently facing is every time I open the app it takes me back to whatever I read last, even after I exit out of the chapter and click on a different tab like discover it news and when I do try to go back the screen won’t load. So now I can’t see any of my updates of read anything new for that matter. I’m seriously thinking about deleting which is a shame because I love a lot of the stories on there.

    Love the App. I do alot of reading and I read fairly fast. I like the fact ads are not ruining the reading experience. I like the book options. I like i can keep track of what I have read and create myself a library. I have tried many many book apps and this by far is the best.
  • Fix your algorithms!!! Apr 1, 2020

    By Chariteehope
    I love this app. I really do. I love it so much that I’ve read just about every single story on the popular and new pages. However, when I search for new books by genre, the same list of books pop up. Now I read a lot. I can finish a 500 page book in a day. That being said, I am searching for something new to read everyday, if not multiple times a day. I’m losing hope that there is even anything new on the site for me to even read. Please refresh your algorithms so that I can see new stories and new things. Not being able to see the page count of each story on the app before I click into it, is frustrating. Something with 30 chapters that’s complete can be misleading. Most of the time, those books average about two hundred to three hundred pages, or even one hundred. I’d like to be able to see how many pages are in the book before so that I don’t accidentally cause the app to crash like it has so many times before.

    The app is a great platform for me to post more of my stories on. And having the ability to make my stories a series is great. But there is a glitch in the app. This is my first time downloading the app, and as I try to post my first story, it gives me a pop up saying im missing one more piece of info, and that's the genre, age rating, language, and etc. As I try to fix that issue, it goes white and after a minute it kicks me out of the app. Please fix this!!😩

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.

    I love this app and having new stories to read. My only complaint is that some chapters don't show the entire chapter when the font is made larger. I have poor eyesight so have to make the font large to read, and sometimes I have to guess as to the last two or three lines of the chapter.
  • Fixes to make app useful for visually impaired users Apr 24, 2018

    By Saphire'sSanctuary
    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.

    I love, love, love this app. I can't say enough good things about it. Thank you for fixing the scrolling issue. The only problem I have at the moment is my news fed doesn't update the stories after they have been updated now. Also if the authors haven't finished their stories within a year please remove them and the should also finish one before they start another story but I know you all can't control that a lot. Keep up the good work you all do.

    This used to be an awesome app and I did most of my reading here. But since the last update I did it's a mess. I may get notifications and I may not. The biggest problem is the app closes out! A lot! Sometimes before it fully loads. When I finally manage to open a book, I may get a few paragraphs in and it closes out! I may give up and uninstall it. It's been weeks.
  • Love the site, hate the app Jun 5, 2020

    By MonaL16
    Alright, I love love love the stories on the Inkitt site, and I love that (as of June 2020) the stories are free (one of the reasons I stopped using Wattpad is that it was a free space for authors to share their work when I started and then slowly started adding monetization, even without the knowledge or consent of the authors and without paying the authors for the ads they were placing on our stories without us allowing them to) HOWEVER this app is a MESS. It glitches all the time, randomly freezes, goes black, shuts down. It takes forever to load anything and it’s incredibly hard to find stories aside from the same 5 that the app seems to always have in the recommended for you section. I’d love to read more, but can’t find any stories I haven’t read. Now I don’t know if it’s because there aren’t any more stories on the site in the genres and tags that I’m searching or if it’s bc of some algorithm that makes it hard to find them. I’m going to give reading online a try, simply because I am so frustrated with this app lately that I just don’t even want to use it anymore.

    10/30 update** so I'm decreasing the star rating that I've given for the app. The writing portion of the app has a lot of glitches and I continuously lose chapters or portions of chapters won't save so I'm forced to rewrite things. It's better to write on desktop but sometimes that's just not convenient. If they fix the issue I'd probably change the star rating again, but right now it's just frustrating.

    Amazingly easy to use but Everytime I click "Part of A Series?" it goes to a white screen and then exits me out the app. Still Very easy to use and I'm glad that I can share books to others. You can also make books and publish them as well, I've been trying to find an app like this for a long time anyway.
  • Maybe user error? Apr 6, 2020

    By 197426896
    Fantastic app but I was wondering if there is anyway of horizontal reading. I swear I looked it up to see if I was just dumb and couldn’t find it but if there isn’t a way to read horizontally this would be a good option to add if possible. I use my iPad horizontally constantly and it’s kind of annoying to have to turn it vertical when I’m jumping between a video and reading. This has also held me back from really using this app. Also would be nice is if books had the ability to show they are finished or completed like in Wattpad (if these are all features already and I’m just dumb I apologize I obviously haven’t used the app much to figure everything out but, I also figured my five star review would just help instead of hinder). Thanks!

  • Love, Love, Love Inkitt Apr 21, 2021

    By Purespiryt
    I am brand new to Inkitt I have only been here for 2-3 days now. I do believe that I have been blessed for I have not run into any of the issues some of the other readers have. I can not begin to tell you how happy I am that I get to read these books straight through instead of being stopped after each chapter and made to wait for hours to finish the stories. I am an avid reader since being here I have finished 4 books and am currently reading 4 others, I would probably be done with them as well if their stories were finished. I am so thankful for this platform, thank you.

    You can read some good stuff from some unheard of writers. Keep in mind there's no way to search for completed pieces, REALLY WISHED THIS WAS SOMETHING YOU COULD LOOK INTO, so you may set down and get into a piece read all the chapters that have been loaded to find out the writer hasn't finished it. Could be weeks or months if at all before you get any more chapters. Most of these writers do something else full time this is there hobby or outlet. But good reading mostly
  • Great app! some issues! Apr 14, 2020

    By Natalie2134677
    First, Inkitt has been a god sent! I love the catalogue and the fact that it is quality stories for no cost. I have been a Wattpad reader ever since before the design and price changes and I have to search in the nooks and crannies to find a quality book that is free! But Inkitt has it all I look for in a reading app in one place! But the only shortcoming is the layout. Now the layout is horrible there’s waaaay too many things trying to be crammed on one home screen and none of the pictures see conclusive, they just seem to fade. I would suggest a way to organize it to make it more user friendly and another is the FONT. PLEASE CHANGE THE FONT or give us an option to change it when we read because the current one is very hard to see and especially against the stark white background! But other than those simple design issues 10/10 app! I would definitely recommend!
  • Really good app but… Oct 8, 2021

    By Itsonlykieaa
    Really good app i’m a big book worm and love having a change from wattpad but there’s a lot that needs to be worked on with Inkitt. 1 my notification history keeps updating me on books i’m not longer reading and can’t delete the notification. 2 i need to know how lidar i am in the chapter or sometimes the app could crash and i now have to scroll quickly in the chapter to get back to my spot. 3 i love added multiple books in my library at once then picking which one to start first i would love it more if i didn’t have to go inside the story just to add it then go back to add another. All in all i love the app but with me having this app 2+ years and nothing has changed it’s still the exact same app from when i first downloaded it i doubt it will start taking suggestions now.

  • I love this app Feb 10, 2018

    By Waitwhatyoko
    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

    By Ms.Mystery*
    I love the stories! I usually do all my reading on this app, but it has bugs that I’ve been dealing with that a super irritating. Sometimes it’ll just completely cut off as I’m reading something and I’ll end up at my home screen. Another issue I’ve been having is that when I go to write comments on a chapter my keyboard will get in the way and I can’t submit and or see the things I’ve written to check for misspellings. There’s also the problem of when an author has an update on your news feed and I click it, it doesn’t take me to the new chapter, it takes me to the previous one. The biggest issue I am currently facing is every time I open the app it takes me back to whatever I read last, even after I exit out of the chapter and click on a different tab like discover it news and when I do try to go back the screen won’t load. So now I can’t see any of my updates of read anything new for that matter. I’m seriously thinking about deleting which is a shame because I love a lot of the stories on there.

(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.

    Been using this app for awhile and love all the stories. I have sent many friends to this app. But latly I wont tell others to use this app until the glitches are worked out. Many of us are patiently waiting for updates to books from writers we follow. The problem is the app is not giving us updates when chapters are added anymore. Thankfully some of the writers are posting on their wall to inform us of updates.
  • Love the app but there’s some problems Dec 6, 2020

    I love some features of this app like being able to leave and read reviews or the fact that every story is free. However, there’s some problems. 1.when I press the app it doesn’t immediately open-the screen goes black for about 5 seconds until the app opens.(not my phone’s fault as this only happens with Inkitt) 2. The app freezes a lot and I have to press multiple times for it to do what I want it to do. 3. When I go to the next chapter it often brings me back to the begging of the chapter I’d just read. 4. It isn’t really a problem but it could be good if the red circle in the notifications went away after you opened and reloaded all your notifications, instead of us having to click and open one of the notifications. 5. When somebody replies to my comment and I click the notifications, instead of it bringing me to my comment, it just opens the end of the comments section of whichever chapter and book it is.
  • Enjoyable With A Few Issues May 4, 2018

    By JessiC1990
    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.
  • Very laggy on mobile Jan 15, 2021

    By nohater446
    So I downloaded this app about a month or two ago and it worked just fine. I first started using it on my iPad, where it crashed almost instantly and I kept having to reopen it to start it again. I also cannot access any of the groups on mobile because it just turns to a blank white screen that I’m getting so sick of! On my computer, however, it seems totally and completely fine. It works well, and it’s easier to write the stories b/c you don’t need to download a completely different app for it(u have to on mobile). Anyways, it’s VERY laggy on mobile which is a problem that I think you should look into. I can barely post comments when I’m on mobile because my “submit” button will not work, I click it a lot and it still won’t submit my comment. What I’m trying to say is decent app, it’s nice and all, but it’s buggy.
  • In need of more advanced tools May 28, 2020

    I love the app it not only allows me to read more stories but more Mature ones that wattpad started to take down or made it difficult for some authors. The only issues I have are that there are no previous chapter button, I hate when I accidentally press next chapter or I forget what happens and instead of swiping or pressing something I have to go to the chapters and slide down to the I want, I’m not sure if it’s available on desktop but I personally don’t like reading on a computer so even if it was it wouldn’t benefit me The next problem I have is when searching for new stories to read there are no filters that can have you choose “Completed” or not, sometimes I don’t want to read unfinished books my patience can’t handle sometimes.

    This used to be an awesome app and I did most of my reading here. But since the last update I did it's a mess. I may get notifications and I may not. The biggest problem is the app closes out! A lot! Sometimes before it fully loads. When I finally manage to open a book, I may get a few paragraphs in and it closes out! I may give up and uninstall it. It's been weeks.

    10/30 update** so I'm decreasing the star rating that I've given for the app. The writing portion of the app has a lot of glitches and I continuously lose chapters or portions of chapters won't save so I'm forced to rewrite things. It's better to write on desktop but sometimes that's just not convenient. If they fix the issue I'd probably change the star rating again, but right now it's just frustrating.
  • Love the site, hate the app Jun 5, 2020

    By MonaL16
    Alright, I love love love the stories on the Inkitt site, and I love that (as of June 2020) the stories are free (one of the reasons I stopped using Wattpad is that it was a free space for authors to share their work when I started and then slowly started adding monetization, even without the knowledge or consent of the authors and without paying the authors for the ads they were placing on our stories without us allowing them to) HOWEVER this app is a MESS. It glitches all the time, randomly freezes, goes black, shuts down. It takes forever to load anything and it’s incredibly hard to find stories aside from the same 5 that the app seems to always have in the recommended for you section. I’d love to read more, but can’t find any stories I haven’t read. Now I don’t know if it’s because there aren’t any more stories on the site in the genres and tags that I’m searching or if it’s bc of some algorithm that makes it hard to find them. I’m going to give reading online a try, simply because I am so frustrated with this app lately that I just don’t even want to use it anymore.
