    Stay away from Webnovel! May 18, 2021

    By RobinRenee Sims
    This is the most outlandish ripoff to hit the web I’ve seen in quite a while! I can’t believe I got sucked into this websight to the tune of $35 and didn’t even finish reading one poorly written book! Don’t be stupid like I was. Stay away!

    This is slightly above a scam. May 2, 2021

    By Laurie Stewart
    This app should be taken off of IOS and Android - I don't even know how it's allowed. This is slightly above a scam. By the time you "pay" for THEIR chapters - you'd be paying $300-500 for a book that costs $25 for the hardcover in a store! The chapters are only 3-4 pages each. .13-.15 per chapter sounds cheap when you think each book has an average of 25 chapters... each NORMAL BOOK. NOT CLOUDARY BOOKS.
  • Great app but customer service and in app purchases not so good Jun 3, 2020

    I love the plots and drawing of all the comics that I’ve been reading. I also love that it kind of limits how much you can read (3 chapters a day for free) so that you don’t get addicted. However, there are a few mistakes. For one, the purchasing of coins is very risky and stressful to me. A while ago I bought 250 coins twice which came to a total of $10. This purchase went through immediately and I had no problem. But, about 6 hours ago today I bought 1000 coins for $20 and it didn’t work so well. I waited 1 hour and still didn’t receive the coins. Whenever I went to the help center it said to contact their support team and gave me an email. I emailed them immediately explaining my problem and even showed a screenshot of my purchase history as proof. They didn’t respond so I emailed them again (about 2.5 hours after the original email). Still no response. I even ended up contacted them through instagram. I am currently still wait for a response and for my coins. Although I am disappointed that my $20 have gone to waste I will continue to support this app as the comics are amazing. 😊😘❤️

    This app was actually good. I came across it due to an accidental Facebook post. I’ve been reading now for a week and I only have a few issues. The point system doesn’t make any sense. Do you get points because the book is new?Why do books that are over a year old still have high coin cost? shouldn’t those cost come down. For example I am reading a chapter book that has over 1100 chapters, how however I am only 200 chapters in and I have already spent $25. On average you can buy this book in the store for that cost. Why does it cost so much to read these books? If you could change the points system to where chapters cost maybe three points instead of seven or eight that might ease the burden of paying for these chapters. Also I noticed that the further into the chapters you get the more they cost. Again as I said I’m only 200 chapters it so why did the cost of the chapters go from 7 to 8 is it going to be a one point increase every 100 pages? I have paid for the trial(Which was discounted from 9.99 to 7.99 ) for 500 coins. Add the $10 purchase for 500 points and the individual purchases of 50 points for a dollar this is becoming quite expensive and I don’t know if I can continue to read after this book. It’s obvious that the goal is to get money instead of telling stories so could we try to focus on telling the stories and not how much money were making.

    I have found some of the best authors on webnovel. But, it would be nice if I could read all the chapters I receive every day for signing in and watching adds and voting...you get the idea. This new version makes it so certain chapters gained only work for certain story lines. Liked the old version better. Many of us do not have the financial ability to buy chapters.

    You have great selections of translated novels & originals along with web comics. As a user who has been using this app for over a year I’ve see many changes. I really enjoy using this app I like how interactive and gives individuals a chance to write their own novels and get paid for it if it gets popular enough. The minor issues I have are for one, some minor glitches with the current update. Webnovel please address them accordingly and I hope you read people’s review. Alright so the switch from stones to coins (I have absolutely no issues with that because as you mentioned it would be the same just the name change) but you took away the bonus (stone/coins) we actually enjoy that incentive when we purchase (stones/coins) to read (please consider it and bring it back), another thing is when you check-in you get experience points to level up (I’m currently lvl 7 & I haven’t seen any perks any difference from 5-7) can give us coins instead or mix it up not just experience points. I would prefer to receive coins because with the fast pass I can only read 3 chapters free which is nice however,(by the way you have to use same day) I can’t save the coins. Anyways keep up the good works I enjoy your app I just have minor issues.

    This app is expensive! You’ll easily spend over $200 for one story. They have some pretty good stories on there. Some are better than others so you have to spend some time searching. I recommend reading only complete stories though. I invested so much money in one story to find it wasn’t complete and the author hadn’t updated in over month. Also, the stories are like 500+ chapters long. The thing that irks me is that first 20 or so chapters in the stories are plot driven and really capture your attention. Then the next 100 chapters is devoted to the main character doing mundane things like enjoying a pleasant meal with family and having lighthearted or nonsensical banner with other characters or even just having an internal monologue. Then you get 3-4 chapters that advanced the plot with another 100 or so chapters about nothing important. And that pattern repeats until the end of the book. So, many of these stories are unnecessarily long and I suspect it’s due to the issue of earning money. The app itself is not intuitive. Like, you have to play around with it for a bit to figure it out and their Privilege system is a total scam. You use 300+ coins for the privilege of reading chapters that aren’t released yet and then have to use more coins to unlock the chapters you just used your privilege on. I like the app ok, but they need a better system that is easier on the reader’s wallet.

    It's a fantastic app for the most part. Some of the novels that the company picks up make no sense for them to choose, while they leave quite a number of fantastic novels dropped. But overall the UI for the app is great and if you have the money and the willingness to support some great authors and read some great novels i would reccomend you download the app! (Thanks for the hard work staff at WN!)
  • I want to give 5 stars... but Nov 28, 2020

    This app has AMAZING!!!! novels and comics/mangas. However, it is almost not worth the money. I love love reading, and I especially love binge reading. I bought the membership which isn’t too bad of deal except the 10 free daily coins aren’t really worth it. The purchase of 800 coins for $7.99 is probably the only good reason for the membership. I think the app layout is great, with needing only some minor enhancements just to make the User interface more friendly. However if you don’t have a decent amount of money to spend on this app, it’s not really worth it. I hope they decide to change it to a membership more like the Wattpad membership or allow an easier way to obtain coins for free. The competition for this app is Wattpad and Webtoons. In comparison of money-wise and story-wise. Both of those app rank far more above this app. I understand that helping the authors is one of the reasons for this, however Wattpad has the exact same thing. They just have a better way of rewarding the Authors and making it simpler for the Readers. I really really wanted to give this 5 stars. But with both the membership and there being no simpler way to obtain coins. I’ve taken off 2 stars, for a 3 star rating. Truly unfortunate, this app could take 1st, but at the moment, they’re just not worth it.

    Good overall, but too costly. For $10 a month I should be able to read one novel or comic without having to pay for it after it gets you hooked. Good stories, but seems like a scam when you end up paying so much. I mean, I pay under $10 a month for Disney + and get all their content, with a couple exceptions. So, this is just not worth it.

  • Love it but too many non-free chapters Mar 6, 2020

    By Vietdarkness
    I love this app, but I can barely get any coins or fast passes. I usually use fast passes because I still don’t know how to get coins, however the fast passes only last one chapter and you can only earn them by daily rewards and accomplishing some certain tasks. If you want more people to come to your app, I would recommend doing something with the daily rewards or fast passes so the people can unlock more chapters and keep reading. You should also make every book or comic have at least ten or twenty free chapters in them so people can keep reading and get more hooked. I love Webnovel because of all of the fun and may be inappropriate comics or books and they are really fun to read, but it is not really clear on how to get coins which also tells me you need to make it more clearer so more people understand how you get them and what they do. Also this may look like an essay and you might not want to read this which I’m sorry about, but all I wanted was to let you know, is that you may need to improve your reading app for people like me whom do not understand as much, but love reading the novels, graphic novels, and fan-fics as well as listening to Ebooks, if you did read this thank you for reading it and I hope you can consider all of my suggestions.

    Ok they have membership back but it doesn't offer very much, if you're not careful, you could spend $20 & more on one book. I'm not sure membership is a good deal, you only get 300 coins per month & not all at once & forget about the so called 800 coins, again you don't get it all at once, they say they spread it out. I think they should give all coins at one time then you can buy more if you need for the month. I love the story's I'm reading.

    The pricing is ridiculous. You have to pay for each chapter and some are over 1000 chapters and the cost you would have to spend for the whole book is extortionate. Nobody pays those kind of prices for a critically acclaimed book, never mind these stories. For example, for a book 301 chapters long, I would have to have approx 2050 coins, which to buy a pack of 2500 is £46??? (This is after the free first 41 chapters as well) Who buys a book for that?
  • Greatly Sadden Dec 21, 2019

    Honestly when this app first came out I loved everything about it. I would spend hours on end on it reading. Back then most of the chapters were free expect the last 10 releases. Which you pay maybe 5 or 1 spirit stones “ sorry coins”to unlock. However as time went by they started locking chapters that use to be free already and making stones last limited time. Soon they added a subscription which I don’t mind paying for one to read and unlock all if not a good amount of novels. However, they got rid of it shortly after and it became what it is today. So why the low review? 80% of the chapters that use to be free are locked, you pay 10$ to get 500 coins which would only unlock around (33 to 71) if your lucky and LN can easily have up to 500+ chapters mind you, daily coins last limited time so if you don’t use it quickly well to bad, and honestly the voting system does great injustice for authors since it pretty much set up for us to vote just to get a little bit more coins without reading their LN. I am down with supporting authors and translators for their work but this? Ima have to say no thank you. I may not understand all on how the back end of this works but as it is now I hope to prepare any future readers before they got on this app. If you do, whip out your credit card because trust me you won’t get far without it. Thank you for taking the time to read this and have a good day.

    Gets way to expensive really fast. Over the years people have been able to read less and less for free due to changes brought to different rewards systems. As of now you are able to read 2 chaps daily for free and if ur lucky maybe a third. They reward you for reading recomended books for over 20 minutes a day. But you get maybe 5 minutes of reading with the current system. Dont get me wrong I have payed to read books but when you have to pay 200+ bucks to read something fully its not worth it.
  • Spirit coins Dec 30, 2019

    By ello mellow
    This app was great at first, not everything was free sure. But it did give you a chance to earn way to read locked episodes, like daily check ins and other things, the problem I had with was when I saved up my free spirit coins to use on a story I was reading, when I caught up I have extra spirit coins so I thought I’d save those for later. Little did I know that those coins expire, so when I found a new story I wanted to read with it, the app have expired +200 spirit coins, this would be on me, I probably should I spend my coins when I got the first notification, I just didn’t have a story to spend them on. Sense than every time I check in I don’t get spirit coins for some reason? I think those were switched out for points? If you watch a add you can get 1 fast pass which lets you read one episode of your story or comic. You can only watch one add a day though so if you are trying to binge or catch up on a comic it makes that much harder. Yes I love the comics I’m reading, I have tried looking for them on other platforms because of this problem with the one a day if you can’t buy spirit coins. I’m sorry if this review made little sense but the point if they added a add system, where if you watch a add you can get spirit coins or fast passes it would be much more helpful.

    By Jessica DeCoste
    Why should I pay for a subscription, when I can't read the whole book without paying even more? Absolutely ridiculous. It gets expensive quick. I had to cut myself off. It's really too bad... I got hooked on a good story (not good writing but the storyline made up for it). Now, because I refuse to pay several times the amount of a good novel, to read this online, I'll never know how it ends.
  • Jun 3, 2021

    By Zach Ranson
    the ability to get passes should be higher so that readers that are in to a story don't have to stop reading it when a chapter is locked. I wish you would bring back the watch a add and get a fast pass, I also hate that the dalily login is now a random reward. and what I hate the most is the single and genre fast passes, I get so many romance fp that go to waste. I also wish that the fp that cost 1000 points would be back in the shop. and if you can't afford it then start pushing more adds.

    I started to read one of the novels on Facebook and it was great. I became a member on Webnovel. It was great at first because I could read as much as I wanted but at a certain point I had to wait for them to release chapters. You can pay for extra chapters but, then they make you wait even longer. I've tried other novels but they aren't as good. Don't waste your money. Go and buy a book.
  • It was awesome but now it’s over Nov 15, 2020

    By GhostofDao
    This used to be one of the best applications I ever used. I was spending hours reading every day and it never bothered me investing money in order to support my favorite authors and the translators that made it possible for me to read these books. During this past year, a great number of changes took place. I was not pleased with all of them but I kept using the application without complains. But these last six months, a great number of books were/are suddenly dropped (they are already complete but they simply stop translating them) although they were/are very popular. They arbitrarily decide to stop translating books without ever offering a single explanation. Many loyal readers are outraged. You might have already spend 50$ and more to read a single book and never read the ending. This is not professional at all and a major turn off for every decent reader. So if you decide to download this app, be warned and only read the books that are already described as COMPLETE because it’s really a sin to spend years (some of these books have more than 1,500 chapters) and money to read an awesome book and ending up reading part of it. Hopefully a decent application will appear soon to cover the gap that Webnovel created.

    You have great selections of translated novels & originals along with web comics. As a user who has been using this app for over a year I’ve see many changes. I really enjoy using this app I like how interactive and gives individuals a chance to write their own novels and get paid for it if it gets popular enough.

Alright so the switch from stones to coins (I have absolutely no issues with that because as you mentioned it would be the same just the name change) but you took away the bonus (stone/coins) we actually enjoy that incentive when we purchase (stones/coins) to read (please consider it and bring it back), another thing is when you check-in you get experience points to level up (I’m currently lvl 7 & I haven’t seen any perks any difference from 5-7) can give us coins instead or mix it up not just experience points. I would prefer to receive coins because with the fast pass I can only read 3 chapters free which is nice however,(by the way you have to use same day) I can’t save the coins. Anyways keep up the good works I enjoy your app I just have minor issues.

    Very useful books that come at reasonable prices plus options to create your own works very easily! I especially love that you can flip the pages like it is a real book. My only dissatisfaction is that the audible voice is deadpan with absolutely no inflection which GREATLY decreases the appeal of the books. If they need a cheap voice I'd do it just so I could hear the books as I drive without wanting to turn it off immediately.
  • I Love this app, Fast pass/Coins Apr 2, 2020

    By JaylovestoRead
    I love this app with many creative and interesting stories however there’s a problem with the fast pass and coins. I have to wait another day just to read the next chapter because I already use up fast pass after voting and I really don’t understand how to get coins without paying cause I’m broke to buy any coins or fast passes. ( I’m a college student who has to pay fee’s for classes, Apartment bills/Phone bills, paying to get Equipments like blood pressure and clinical payment for CNA class, get groceries every six week, there’s also the Covid-19 pandemic, and all that other wonderful stuff.😅) I think this app should just use Ad’s. For example, every time the readers get to the next chapter that’s locked we can either pay or watch an ad to read instead of having to wait for another day and the fast passes at least get three by voting cause one fast pass isn’t helping at all. I’m sorry to those who disagree but this might be the only way we can read chapters and Hey!! it’s better than having to wait, being broke, AND writing an upset Review because the chapters are locked.🤷‍♀️

    Love the app, been using it for a long time. Though recently it's taking longer and longer to open the app and load chapters, till the point that I've waited 5min for it to open but still doesn't. This was after force stopping it and restarting my phone. But otherwise it's a great app and I highly recommend it. (Edit): After uninstalling, the reinstalling the app, everything started to run faster and doesn't take long to load chapters.
  • Cheap App Jan 11, 2021

    By V.143
    This app has potential, but as I’m from Korea where lots of apps like this have a premium interface and the writing quality is very high, I have to say this is a cheap waste of time and there are many stolen works on Webnovel. People take translations from Wattpad, from pirated sites, from Webtoon Canvas, from basically anywhere you can find comic and novel content without getting caught. I am used to nice apps that have certified copyrights and have experience publishing on major platforms before that do things the legal way with all rights reserved, so I am going to disclaimer this harsh review by saying I will give you the five stars just so this can be seen. Many authors who claim original content have stolen from other sites, so do not follow or support any author even if you read their works. If you see something is stolen, go report it to the rightful owner and get it taken down. I will try my best to find stolen works here, but the writing is cheap and poor quality and wrong credit is given everywhere so it is very hard.
  • Good but needs upgrading Jun 26, 2020

    By Phoenix thunder tsunami
    I just got it I can’t A lot wife I didn’t think but it is a very great app if you tried to watch or read some steamy romance that you can’t read on WEBTOON then you should definitely get it. But it could be a place for cute stories like Your ears are showing! That’s a cute story or you could go for beastly romance like beast and beauty. But on some stories they always have a lock like web tune but the difference between the two is web tune gives you actual schedule wow web novel a clear schedule. What is one comic or web novel I wanted to read but after I clicked read I had to automatically use coins and I don’t think that’s really fair to the reader if they can’t afford it especially when the daily coins that you give can be expired. But I also think that when they’re trying to lock chapters until every week they should at least give us a warning or tell us other two and then to purchase the comic or novel they could just give us a detailed schedule

    I have spent countless hours reading these novels. It can Definitely can be a money sink, but its been a real joy to delve into the series produced by the site. A lot of the content is unpolished, and much of it is relatively similar. Thats where my complaints end. When you find a good series that really hooks you, you'll be a supporter forever. The never ending format introduces a kind of character development that is impossible to find outside of long serial novels (eg. wheel of time)

    It is really an amaising app. I like this app because it is free, has 0/ads and you can mess with others when reading comics. Did I mention it has LITERALLY 0/ADS. Plus you get 3 fast passes every day for free aswell. They also are activly listening to the community and making changes based on what we want. Lots of people don't like the subscription service, so they made a form where you can tell them you you don't like, now it has a few updates every couple of weeks.
  • Five Stars but please listen May 8, 2020

    I love this app so much because of all the talented authors that have written wonderful stories to read. However, I don’t like that at a certain chapter you begin to have to use Fast Passes or Coins in order to read that chapter. I know that the app has to make money some way, but why is it so difficult to get Fast Passes? You only get one Fast Pass a day which means you can only read one chapter a day unless you have bought coins or more Fast Passes. My concern is for the younger readers on this app who are not allowed to spend money on apps and can only read a single chapter a day. That’s not exactly fair to them. I feel like the app should have a different way of gaining revenue other than charging money to read chapters. Other than my problem with the Fast Passes and Coins, this app is truly wonderful. I hope the creators of this app could take my words into consideration. Thank you for reading.
  • GREAT! Mar 27, 2021

    By remotepine51106
    I read Webnovel every day. There is a story for everybody and a chance for everybody. If you are just there to read, you can support your favorite book, and in return, you are rewarded. You also can support new books so they can gain traction and get more views. Again, you are rewarded for this, so everyone has a reason for supporting. The only downside for me personally that I can think of right now is IT IS SO HARD TO GET TO LEVEL 4!! ESPECIALLY WHEN THEY UPDATE THE APP TO GIVE LESS XP, AND WHEN YOU FIND A WAY TO GET XP, IT DOESN'T WORK!!! Look, Webnovel, I love your app and wish to support more creators on it, but the daily post a comment and get 2 or more likes to get 15 XP is dumb. Instead, it should say have a comment get 2 or more likes to get 15 XP, or maybe even 3 likes for 10 XP. I don’t care what the like amount or XP amount given is, just get rid of the post a comment, because it means that my old posts don’t matter no matter how many likes they get. Thank you for listening.
  • Great app but customer service and in app purchases not so good Jun 3, 2020

    By kenai_keeper05
    I love the plots and drawing of all the comics that I’ve been reading. I also love that it kind of limits how much you can read (3 chapters a day for free) so that you don’t get addicted. However, there are a few mistakes. For one, the purchasing of coins is very risky and stressful to me. A while ago I bought 250 coins twice which came to a total of $10. This purchase went through immediately and I had no problem. But, about 6 hours ago today I bought 1000 coins for $20 and it didn’t work so well. I waited 1 hour and still didn’t receive the coins. Whenever I went to the help center it said to contact their support team and gave me an email. I emailed them immediately explaining my problem and even showed a screenshot of my purchase history as proof. They didn’t respond so I emailed them again (about 2.5 hours after the original email). Still no response. I even ended up contacted them through instagram. I am currently still wait for a response and for my coins. Although I am disappointed that my $20 have gone to waste I will continue to support this app as the comics are amazing. 😊😘❤️

    I have found some of the best authors on webnovel. But, it would be nice if I could read all the chapters I receive every day for signing in and watching adds and voting...you get the idea. This new version makes it so certain chapters gained only work for certain story lines. Liked the old version better. Many of us do not have the financial ability to buy chapters.

    It's a fantastic app for the most part. Some of the novels that the company picks up make no sense for them to choose, while they leave quite a number of fantastic novels dropped. But overall the UI for the app is great and if you have the money and the willingness to support some great authors and read some great novels i would reccomend you download the app! (Thanks for the hard work staff at WN!)
  • Ok app but updates need to be made Oct 17, 2019

    By Funny 3333
    Originally the app was fine since it has most of the basic features needed to read and manage your account. After it updated to its current version it had more including better brightness/background options and easier ways to access info about the novel and other functions such as voting with power stones easier. Although it also has improvements that weren’t in the previous version of the app such as the reading milestones that allow you to get more currency or spirit stones for free iT has one major flaw that still hasn’t been fixed. The one major change that made this app less usable however is the lack of a landscape mode in reading mode. Without the landscape reading feature it makes it harder for one to read especially on larger devices such as tablets. There is a section in the help center for landscape mode, but that was for the previous version, before the app version changed to its current set up. In conclusion the app’s new update has increased functions and accessibility, but lack common features such as a landscape mode or the ability to rotate the screen
  • Great app but can be costly for hardcore readers May 11, 2019

    By Indescency
    I’ll try to keep my review short. First and foremost, I absolutely love the stories that can be found on the app! There is something in there for everyone and most stories get new chapters daily. For those of you who are casual readers (only a few chapters every day,) you can get by with reading the stories in here for free. For those who read dozens of chapters a day, sorry to say that you’ll need to pay or wait a very, very long time to catch up on a very good story. Until recently, there was a membership where $30 would get you unlimited access to all chapters that costed spirit stones (basically in-game currency.), but that got taken away and now all chapters not designated as free by the author cost spirit stones. By my estimation, for the more hardcore readers, I would say you’d have to pay $50 a month in spirit stones to be able to read at a fast pace. This is the biggest drawback of this app. $50 a month I’d quite pricey. I would love to give the app 5* but I can’t justify that on how expensive it is to read. TL;DR: Great app, great stories, but currently too expensive if you like to read a lot.
  • Almost perfect Jun 4, 2021

    By 518Alexis
    It can get a little pricey but that’s just cuz the books I’ve found the past few months are really good so that’s not why the minus star. It’s because I have to delete it and download it at least once a month, sometimes more. There’s some kind of glitch that happens when one book in particular updates chapters and I can’t get to them unless I delete it and re-download for some reason. I don’t know why. It’s so good I pay for the privilege. It doesn’t even act like it’s the end where it takes you to another page. I swipe up and it just won’t go anywhere it just stays on the page until I back out. So it’s a bit frustrating but it’s been happening for months and I’m still here so guess it’s still worth it. Apparently. Try Married to the Devils Son. One my faves. That’s the one this happens on tho but the stories are epic. Then the author MishaK has 3 stories that are amazing! 2 complete and one in progress that I jump for joy every time there’s new chapters! Yeah so still worth it!
  • Please added a tech support spot on the app May 11, 2021

    By Public princess
    I joined in July 2020 and I really like this app but I have noticed some issues which seem to be fixed or are being fixed. some of the pages in comics won’t load so it’s either a blank page or black. It’s hard to find somewhere to get tech-support . I don’t want to report a comic I just need help. Sometimes comics shows that I am off-line but I’m able to see other comics I’m not off-line there’s nothing wrong on my side. I wish there was a way to get rid of the book recommendations or the fast passes for books I only got this app to read the comics but I can’t switch off the books. It can be frustrating when a comic says that it’s completed but they didn’t complete the comic it just ends, because you have to pay money to keep on reading or wait and then you end up spending so much money on this one comic and it’s a let down. They are really great reads and emotional stories on here and it’s a good place to read.
  • A must get for avid readers! Aug 1, 2020

    By Wolfie1O1
    I’ve been using this app for a few years now, with hardly no complications and reasons to be dissatisfied with. A list of the things I wish where different was the currency. The first sixty or so chapters of a book are free, but then, you have to start unlocking them with fast passes and or coins. The coins are hard to get and are usually bought with real money, the fast passes on the other hand, you can only get three a day by completing small goals and logging in. And that’s what bugs me. Only having such a small amount of passes to read the next chapters of my book. If it weren’t for that, I would give it a full five stars. But other than that, I would say this app is amazing and well created. It has books that are translated, books that are original and even comic books in which you could read. This is a life saver app for me and my avid reading. So I do recommend getting it. Thank you.
  • Great app has its flaws Oct 24, 2018

    By A2k49
    So since the opened the original author section I’ve fallen for quite a few but to many of them use naruto. Some others have spoken about unlocking chapters its obviously flawed. Especially seeing how the translator can decide how many spirit stones are needed to unlock one. Some authors have decided to make a single chapter worth 10-15 stones. That is absolutely ridicules a hundred chapters all of which take about that many. They should just get rid of the system all together and implement a system where you buy spirit stones to purchase the next novel that’s coming early for the read. Or you can vote for things with spirit stones as well. Now with this new update I don’t know if it’s the update or my phone but nothing is uploading I check the app to see I have six messages but I go on it and nothing is loading at all. Some of the LN on here as well don’t load either. So they definitely need to fix these issues.
  • Great App but Jan 6, 2021

    By jAlslev
    I found this App via a Facebook ad and having been enjoying it for the last few months. I enjoy the content and daily recommendations, I have spent several afternoons comfortably bundled in a blanket reading chapter upon chapter. I even invested in the Membership. What I don’t fully understand is the privilege system, I was able to purchase it last month and made great use of it over the holidays (vacation time allowed for more reading). Knowing that Privilege status expires at the end of the month I wanted to secure it again (in addition o the monthly membership fee). However I am completely unable to locate how I purchase and it is frustrating to know that I am paying for a monthly membership and still have to purchase coins to unlock chapters to keep any sort of pace with reading. I wish there was a clear description of what membership provides and how to secure privilege access.
  • Surprising good, but..... Jun 27, 2020

    By Ayashi Hitomi
    This app was actually good. I came across it due to an accidental Facebook post. I’ve been reading now for a week and I only have a few issues. The point system doesn’t make any sense. Do you get points because the book is new?Why do books that are over a year old still have high coin cost? shouldn’t those cost come down. For example I am reading a chapter book that has over 1100 chapters, how however I am only 200 chapters in and I have already spent $25. On average you can buy this book in the store for that cost. Why does it cost so much to read these books? If you could change the points system to where chapters cost maybe three points instead of seven or eight that might ease the burden of paying for these chapters. Also I noticed that the further into the chapters you get the more they cost. Again as I said I’m only 200 chapters it so why did the cost of the chapters go from 7 to 8 is it going to be a one point increase every 100 pages? I have paid for the trial(Which was discounted from 9.99 to 7.99 ) for 500 coins. Add the $10 purchase for 500 points and the individual purchases of 50 points for a dollar this is becoming quite expensive and I don’t know if I can continue to read after this book. It’s obvious that the goal is to get money instead of telling stories so could we try to focus on telling the stories and not how much money were making.
  • It’s expensive Jun 2, 2021

    By Hnb34
    This app is expensive! You’ll easily spend over $200 for one story. They have some pretty good stories on there. Some are better than others so you have to spend some time searching. I recommend reading only complete stories though. I invested so much money in one story to find it wasn’t complete and the author hadn’t updated in over month. Also, the stories are like 500+ chapters long. The thing that irks me is that first 20 or so chapters in the stories are plot driven and really capture your attention. Then the next 100 chapters is devoted to the main character doing mundane things like enjoying a pleasant meal with family and having lighthearted or nonsensical banner with other characters or even just having an internal monologue. Then you get 3-4 chapters that advanced the plot with another 100 or so chapters about nothing important. And that pattern repeats until the end of the book. So, many of these stories are unnecessarily long and I suspect it’s due to the issue of earning money. The app itself is not intuitive. Like, you have to play around with it for a bit to figure it out and their Privilege system is a total scam. You use 300+ coins for the privilege of reading chapters that aren’t released yet and then have to use more coins to unlock the chapters you just used your privilege on. I like the app ok, but they need a better system that is easier on the reader’s wallet.
  • I want to give 5 stars... but Nov 28, 2020

    By nic071
    This app has AMAZING!!!! novels and comics/mangas. However, it is almost not worth the money. I love love reading, and I especially love binge reading. I bought the membership which isn’t too bad of deal except the 10 free daily coins aren’t really worth it. The purchase of 800 coins for $7.99 is probably the only good reason for the membership. I think the app layout is great, with needing only some minor enhancements just to make the User interface more friendly. However if you don’t have a decent amount of money to spend on this app, it’s not really worth it. I hope they decide to change it to a membership more like the Wattpad membership or allow an easier way to obtain coins for free. The competition for this app is Wattpad and Webtoons. In comparison of money-wise and story-wise. Both of those app rank far more above this app. I understand that helping the authors is one of the reasons for this, however Wattpad has the exact same thing. They just have a better way of rewarding the Authors and making it simpler for the Readers. I really really wanted to give this 5 stars. But with both the membership and there being no simpler way to obtain coins. I’ve taken off 2 stars, for a 3 star rating. Truly unfortunate, this app could take 1st, but at the moment, they’re just not worth it.

    By Brian Foster
    Good overall, but too costly. For $10 a month I should be able to read one novel or comic without having to pay for it after it gets you hooked. Good stories, but seems like a scam when you end up paying so much. I mean, I pay under $10 a month for Disney + and get all their content, with a couple exceptions. So, this is just not worth it.
  • Love it but too many non-free chapters Mar 6, 2020

    By Vietdarkness
    I love this app, but I can barely get any coins or fast passes. I usually use fast passes because I still don’t know how to get coins, however the fast passes only last one chapter and you can only earn them by daily rewards and accomplishing some certain tasks. If you want more people to come to your app, I would recommend doing something with the daily rewards or fast passes so the people can unlock more chapters and keep reading. You should also make every book or comic have at least ten or twenty free chapters in them so people can keep reading and get more hooked. I love Webnovel because of all of the fun and may be inappropriate comics or books and they are really fun to read, but it is not really clear on how to get coins which also tells me you need to make it more clearer so more people understand how you get them and what they do. Also this may look like an essay and you might not want to read this which I’m sorry about, but all I wanted was to let you know, is that you may need to improve your reading app for people like me whom do not understand as much, but love reading the novels, graphic novels, and fan-fics as well as listening to Ebooks, if you did read this thank you for reading it and I hope you can consider all of my suggestions.

    Ok they have membership back but it doesn't offer very much, if you're not careful, you could spend $20 & more on one book. I'm not sure membership is a good deal, you only get 300 coins per month & not all at once & forget about the so called 800 coins, again you don't get it all at once, they say they spread it out. I think they should give all coins at one time then you can buy more if you need for the month. I love the story's I'm reading.
  • The stories are good...but I’m not getting what I paid for Jul 22, 2020

    By ChrisT ha
    I really like the app and the book I’m reading is wonderful. The problem is, I’m not getting what I paid for. I paid the subscription but did not receive the 500 pts, nor did I receive the 10 daily that should amount to 300 throughout the month. Also, just now, I checked my point balance, which was 14, before I went to check in to claim my free Fast Pass. After claiming it, I went back to check my balance and the point balance was 1. I lost two chapters of reading, by this mishap. Does the “free” fast pass charge us? So then I tried to use my fast pass to at least read one more chapter, and it said I had no fast pass left. I’ve spent a lot of money on this app and I really enjoy it, but I cannot keep supporting it, if I do not receive the points I actually pay for. As is, in a book with 1200+ chapters, you already end up paying about $200 for one book. I really don’t see why I am not even getting the points I paid for, when this book alone is already making you so much money. I really hope I get the points I paid for, or I will be forced to abandon a great book and withdraw my membership.
  • Automatically Signing Me Out While I Am Reading May 16, 2020

    By IWANTDRAGONSTHESEGUYSSUCK
    The app repeatedly signs me out while I'm reading, and then refuses to let me sign back in, so I lose all of my chapter progress and sometimes the book entirely. The timing of the automatic signing out is really inconvenient because I'll be able to vote on a story, but by the time I get to the next chapter I'm just... signed out. And when I try to sign back in, it refuses to let me. I will type everything correctly, click the "sign in" button, and it loads. And loads. And loads. And I still have the option of clicking everything else, so I know that the app is at actually signing me in. So, when I finally request a password reset, because the problem might just be me, I try to sign in, and now it tells me that my account is suspended? Like, why would you not let me sign in, let me change my password, just to say, "Oh, never mind. Well just delete your progress AND your ability to sign in at all! Have fun!" This is really frustrating and I just want to be able to read during quarantine, but all of these problems just wont let me. Please fix this problem or at least tell me how to fix this.
  • Membership is not worth it Mar 29, 2020

    By Enholt87
    I don’t particularly like to leave reviews aside from stars, however I’m slightly aggravated with this app. I downloaded this because of an ad I saw on Facebook. I’ve had WebToons and WebComics for quite some time now and absolutely love the both of them. From what I’ve seen most web comic apps are fairly similar. My biggest complaints about this is the fact that the membership STILL requires the reader to pay coins to unlock episodes. I subscribe to WebComic for $6.99/month and that gives me unlimited access to all the comics. Webtoons offers top up similar to this app, but they only charge 5 coins per episode instead of the 13 coins Webnovel charges. It’s expensive and I’m currently only able to read one comic due to the cost of these coins/unlocking. I was willing to subscribe, but if I’m still having to pay the same amount of coins to unlock the episodes as it is to not subscribe it’s not worth it. The only perk I’ve seen is 10/coins per day. That’s not even enough to unlock one episode of the comic I’m reading.
  • It’s okay Apr 14, 2019

    By Mrs. Dudley
    I had no idea about the spirit stones to read until I got 370 chapters into this amazing book. Pretty bumped that I have to either pay to read what I thought was free or do all this extra stuff to earn stones just to read. I’d rather just go out and buy books in person than try to figure out this app. Update: I made this review a couple weeks ago and now that I’ve had more time to try to accomplish the things that earn spirit stones I actually really like this app. It’s not that hard to earn stones and I don’t always read a lot. The only thing that I still don’t like is the fact that I have a hard time banking enough spirit stones to read for long periods of time. Completing the tasks is fine if I’m only really 3 or 4 chapters a day but there are some days where I want to read 30 to 40 chapters and I never have enough spirit stones to do that. Other than that I really like the app and I do my best to log in every day to earn stones even if I’m not reading that day just so I have extra when I want to read.
  • Spirit coins Dec 30, 2019

    By ello mellow
    This app was great at first, not everything was free sure. But it did give you a chance to earn way to read locked episodes, like daily check ins and other things, the problem I had with was when I saved up my free spirit coins to use on a story I was reading, when I caught up I have extra spirit coins so I thought I’d save those for later. Little did I know that those coins expire, so when I found a new story I wanted to read with it, the app have expired +200 spirit coins, this would be on me, I probably should I spend my coins when I got the first notification, I just didn’t have a story to spend them on. Sense than every time I check in I don’t get spirit coins for some reason? I think those were switched out for points? If you watch a add you can get 1 fast pass which lets you read one episode of your story or comic. You can only watch one add a day though so if you are trying to binge or catch up on a comic it makes that much harder. Yes I love the comics I’m reading, I have tried looking for them on other platforms because of this problem with the one a day if you can’t buy spirit coins. I’m sorry if this review made little sense but the point if they added a add system, where if you watch a add you can get spirit coins or fast passes it would be much more helpful.

    I started to read one of the novels on Facebook and it was great. I became a member on Webnovel. It was great at first because I could read as much as I wanted but at a certain point I had to wait for them to release chapters. You can pay for extra chapters but, then they make you wait even longer. I've tried other novels but they aren't as good. Don't waste your money. Go and buy a book.
  • It was awesome but now it’s over Nov 15, 2020

    By GhostofDao
    This used to be one of the best applications I ever used. I was spending hours reading every day and it never bothered me investing money in order to support my favorite authors and the translators that made it possible for me to read these books. During this past year, a great number of changes took place. I was not pleased with all of them but I kept using the application without complains. But these last six months, a great number of books were/are suddenly dropped (they are already complete but they simply stop translating them) although they were/are very popular. They arbitrarily decide to stop translating books without ever offering a single explanation. Many loyal readers are outraged. You might have already spend 50$ and more to read a single book and never read the ending. This is not professional at all and a major turn off for every decent reader. So if you decide to download this app, be warned and only read the books that are already described as COMPLETE because it’s really a sin to spend years (some of these books have more than 1,500 chapters) and money to read an awesome book and ending up reading part of it. Hopefully a decent application will appear soon to cover the gap that Webnovel created.

    The stories are great, and the authors that find their way onto this app deserve all of the support they get and more.The actual amount of money you pay if you want to read several different stories and you're just starting can add up very quickly. You get ~500 coins for $10 and that will net you ~80 chapters depending on length. Which is only about an hour and a half of reading, maybe two. Otherwise, one chapter a day with their reward system which is f***ed being a day ahead almost constantly.
  • Disappointed Nov 17, 2020

    By Destinedwithin
    I have been reading on this app for years! The stories are great the setup was easy and I did not mind paying for extra coins to read. Overall it WAS one of the best apps out there! I have now dropped them from a 5 star to a 2 and the only reason it is a two is for the writers and artists who do such a wonderful job! When they added the privilege purchases they turned into a money hungry app and the privilege never works. I had the same issue happen twice, where I had read and paid for chapters and needed to purchase the privilege. What you don’t know is with the privilege even if you read and paid for chapters it doesn’t matter. You will get the same chapters you already read and paid for before until a ton of money getting coins to purchase a en higher privilege to purchase more chapters under the privilege. Yep it doesn’t unlock the chapters for you it gives you access for you to pay for them. And the customer service is a joke! They can’t help you, compensate, or fix the issue. Instead they talk to you like you are an idiot and do. It understand anything. So if you like spending tons of money to pay for something 3 times just to read one chapter this is the app for you.

    There are some interesting stories, but the prices are a bit steep between 10 and 25 cent a chapter makes a normal 50 chapter ebook(which would be €3-5 on kindle etc) cost between €5.00 and €12.50 but then the last 25 chapters are normally blocked behind a privileged paywall where you have to pay an additional €12.00 just to get access for the month.... definitely not value for money
  • Great Content, Glaring Issues Nov 1, 2020

    By Joshdog629
    Don’t get me wrong, I highly enjoyed using this app. So much so that I even was purchasing their privileges, a premium service that allows the reader to skip the wait and read the most recent chapters. I come to find out, privileges only last a month. No biggie: I enjoy supporting the authors content and drop the ≈$30 per novel. Later I come to find out if you purchase your privilege, for example, on the 29th of the month, it will actually expire a few days later on the last day of the month. What astounded me further, is that you can purchase privileges for several different novels, weeks apart, yet they will still all expire on the same day. Several times I reached out to online help, which came in the form of a single entity named ‘Matt’, to voice concern. Despite being a premium member who paid quite a bit of money regularly, it was clear through the fake help chat bot that they do not value customer service and have no intentions of actually retaining a loyal customer base. Until this issue is resolved, I would recommend using this app to only view the free content, or forgo it altogether.
  • The Spirit Stone Problem. Mar 4, 2019

    By Ztched
    This app has great stories, an interface that is pleasing to the eye, a pretty decent system in which it uses to decide on the most popular books and what books people want to see next, however, there is a large flaw that makes this great system fail. And that flaw is the overly greedy and overpriced Spirit Stone system. For almost all of the popular, reccomended, or highly rated books, Webnovel has employed a system upon it called premium. It requires the reader to use Spirit stones to unlock and read chapters, but if you want to read a few premium books at a time, you will need to either make several fake emails and invite them to earn a decent ammount, or spend money to gain them at a decent rate. The alternative methods they give you such as checking in, voting power and energy stones, and watching videos aren’t enough to read all the books you would want. This is the overarching problem with this, and this apps intial lure is the freeness of the whole process, and if you don’t want to spend 25 bucks a month to read your favortie books, then I don’t reccomend getting invested into this app.
  • Only worked once Oct 9, 2020

    By Halli620
    The app worked the first time I tried it, to read more of a novel I had started in an ad, but now that I’ve gone back to try to read more, it’s either a glitch or a scam, but it won’t load the novel any time I click on it, and only has a circle loading in the corner, but even when that finishes, it starts over and goes around and around again and again. You can’t even go back to try again without quitting the app and restarting it, and the same thing just happens again when I reopen it and again try to click on the book. The only thing you can click on at all is the circle itself, which brings you to the page where you can buy fast passes. It doesn’t even tell you if you need that to read even your first book, and just having the page loading over and over when you try to get back to it is useless, to either understand what needs to be purchased or why on earth it keeps loading the circle over and over. I’ve wasted so much time letting it load and load and closing and reopening the app. Very disappointing.
  • 80% Behind a Paywall Dec 4, 2020

    By all my nicknames were taken 27
    I downloaded this app after seeing absolutely ridiculous (and often times inappropriate) ads for it, to read and see what it was actually like. In terms of app design, and usage, it’s very nice! It looks good, it’s easy to use, and has a dark mode. Unfortunately, all of the novels are behind a paywall. In a book that had over 1000 chapters, I could only read to chapter 19 before getting locked out of the book. I completely understand wanted to support the translators, but having to pay for chapters that have been out for years (as it tracks when it was posted) feels dirty to me. It didn’t make me want to buy coins, or motivate me to even read any other novels. With such a system, I deleted the app. If you are going to keep a system like this (which I understand to a certain level, there are people that need to be supported behind these stories), do it better. Do something similar to other sites, where newest chapters are behind a paywall, but eventually become free. But not this current system.

    Stay away from Webnovel! May 18, 2021

    By RobinRenee Sims
    This is the most outlandish ripoff to hit the web I’ve seen in quite a while! I can’t believe I got sucked into this websight to the tune of $35 and didn’t even finish reading one poorly written book! Don’t be stupid like I was. Stay away!

    This is slightly above a scam. May 2, 2021

    By Laurie Stewart
    This app should be taken off of IOS and Android - I don't even know how it's allowed. This is slightly above a scam. By the time you "pay" for THEIR chapters - you'd be paying $300-500 for a book that costs $25 for the hardcover in a store! The chapters are only 3-4 pages each. .13-.15 per chapter sounds cheap when you think each book has an average of 25 chapters... each NORMAL BOOK. NOT CLOUDARY BOOKS.

    The pricing is ridiculous. You have to pay for each chapter and some are over 1000 chapters and the cost you would have to spend for the whole book is extortionate. Nobody pays those kind of prices for a critically acclaimed book, never mind these stories. For example, for a book 301 chapters long, I would have to have approx 2050 coins, which to buy a pack of 2500 is £46??? (This is after the free first 41 chapters as well) Who buys a book for that?

    Honestly when this app first came out I loved everything about it. I would spend hours on end on it reading. Back then most of the chapters were free expect the last 10 releases. Which you pay maybe 5 or 1 spirit stones “ sorry coins”to unlock. However as time went by they started locking chapters that use to be free already and making stones last limited time. Soon they added a subscription which I don’t mind paying for one to read and unlock all if not a good amount of novels. However, they got rid of it shortly after and it became what it is today. So why the low review? 80% of the chapters that use to be free are locked, you pay 10$ to get 500 coins which would only unlock around (33 to 71) if your lucky and LN can easily have up to 500+ chapters mind you, daily coins last limited time so if you don’t use it quickly well to bad, and honestly the voting system does great injustice for authors since it pretty much set up for us to vote just to get a little bit more coins without reading their LN. I am down with supporting authors and translators for their work but this? Ima have to say no thank you. I may not understand all on how the back end of this works but as it is now I hope to prepare any future readers before they got on this app. If you do, whip out your credit card because trust me you won’t get far without it. Thank you for taking the time to read this and have a good day.

    Gets way to expensive really fast. Over the years people have been able to read less and less for free due to changes brought to different rewards systems. As of now you are able to read 2 chaps daily for free and if ur lucky maybe a third. They reward you for reading recomended books for over 20 minutes a day. But you get maybe 5 minutes of reading with the current system. Dont get me wrong I have payed to read books but when you have to pay 200+ bucks to read something fully its not worth it.

    Why should I pay for a subscription, when I can't read the whole book without paying even more? Absolutely ridiculous. It gets expensive quick. I had to cut myself off. It's really too bad... I got hooked on a good story (not good writing but the storyline made up for it). Now, because I refuse to pay several times the amount of a good novel, to read this online, I'll never know how it ends.

    the ability to get passes should be higher so that readers that are in to a story don't have to stop reading it when a chapter is locked. I wish you would bring back the watch a add and get a fast pass, I also hate that the dalily login is now a random reward. and what I hate the most is the single and genre fast passes, I get so many romance fp that go to waste. I also wish that the fp that cost 1000 points would be back in the shop. and if you can't afford it then start pushing more adds.

    Before subscribing I used to be able to collect a few free coins as my daily bonus. I realized that I didn't care much for most of the other benefits once I did subscribe and decided it wasn't worth spending every month FOR ME so I canceled the monthly payments. Now I see that my free daily bonus rewards were totally removed unless I resubscribe the monthly payments. I feel pretty cheated, I've totally lost my love for this app for multitude of reasons, I'll be deleting my account now.

    I had a book completely unlocked and came back on to enjoy it. Now that I'm further along in the book, I'm being made to unlock chapters again. Reached out to customer service and was told to send proof that I unlocked using coins. I read by saving up coins with daily check ins and unlocked one by one. Apparently since this was over a year ago, proof that I unlocked the chapters with coins does not show up in my history anymore. This is why I don't use apps that make us unlock by chapters. :/

    It was good while it lasted! They changed up fast pass so now you have some that are for specific types of novel genre that you might not read or are interested in. Some novels have over 700 chapters and they only let you read the first 60 to 100 free then it's a pay to read or read 3 chapters a day with the free fast pass. Also your fast pass expire if you don't use them as well as the coins you purchase with your own money. Idk why something you purchase to read expires but it does on here.
