  • Great app, but there’s a problem...

    by Sticksara

    I’m enjoying this app. With all the different types of comics available to read, it’s has something for everyone. So I say to keep ‘me coming. HOWEVER, the app tends to bring up a blank page, then shuts off after 30 seconds. Let me explain: Whenever I’m done reading a comic for the night, I’ll shut off the app. The next day, when I open the app and go back to the comic I was reading, it brings up a blank page, then freezes up. I can’t go back or do anything with the app. About 30 seconds later, the app will shut down and I’ll have to reopen the app. But again, it’ll do the same thing and I can’t read the comics. The only way to “fix” the problem is to erase the app from my phone and upload it again. That way I can sign in and go back to the comics I was enjoying. BUT I’ve had to do this three times already. It’s not the end of the world, but it can be annoying. So the app needs to be fixed. Hopefully sooner rather then later.

    Like it all in all, but I have two major issues: 1. There is no batch download, and it's not very reliable, too. I seriously have to click on every episode, wait until the first page is loaded, then get back and click on the download link. Cause it does only appear once you've opened it once. Also download only once? Joke? 2. There is no way to see how much of the ink goes to the actual author, and what part to tapas. I don't want to pay mine boggling percent to the platform.

  • Great app but...

    by Cgengddfb

    I enjoy the variety that tapas provides however the new update has caused me some frustration, I understand that they need to display their sponsored comics however it’s overly difficult to find comic that you can read if you are unable to read the featured ones. Even then it takes even longer to find comics you already haven’t seen. While at first this didn’t bother me so much I’ve become increasingly frustrated because, while not always, sometimes when I leave a comic I was quickly looking at from the genre category in the community comics, I go all the way back to the sponsored ones. I also have issue with the discover tab, while I really like the idea in theory the first thing you see when you open it is a featured comic suggested not at all based on your tastes. Even when you scroll down to the community comics, you only see comics recently updated. Rather than this I would display comics with a good amount of hearts(?) for the amount of subscribers(?) that doesn’t already have a huge fan base. Preferably these comics would also be updates rather recently as well. However this is most likely hard to implement so if now this then simply display comics that the user has not read in the genres the user prefers to avoid someone who doesn’t enjoy romance comics getting suggested “chief seduction officer”. Even easier just turn it into the community comics/novels tab

  • by NeonSmoke Screen

    Ive been using Tapas for over a month now and I've had no major issues. I really only have two small problem. I like to download the stories to read offline and downloading itself is hella quick but if you read it as a downloaded story it doesn't bookmark for your story and deleting downloaded stories are kinda annoying, unless you're deleting all of your downloads, because you have to delete them one by one and then leave the download tab and return to read more stories. Overall great app. 💖

  • great idea

    by Taesung-ah

    This app is a great way to support artists at a relatively affordable price which I’m grateful for (other apps like LezhinComics charge $30 for just one series). I wish there were more ways to get coins other than watching ads and referring friends. I know some other apps have more intricate ad rewards (like if you download x app and reach a certain level you get, say, 800 coins to buy comics with etc) and I’m hoping one day they might do that for us one day :) The comics I’ve read are high quality and they have a wide variety to choose from, and actually there’s a LOT of free ones, or ones that have the first few episodes for free so you can decide whether you want to jump into purchasing it or not. Anyways, the app works great functionally BUT I had one huge problem... The app keeps crashing :( Sometimes I’ll have the app opened for five minutes or less and it will crash, sometimes it won’t crash for 30 minutes straight but inevitably every time I have used the app it has crashed ;_; if not for that I would’ve given more stars but unfortunately it’s really damaging my enjoyment of the app because of its frequency....Hopefully this is something that can be fixed so I can change my review sooner rather than later and more people can properly enjoy everything tapas has to offer!!

  • by Brooke Van Gelderen

    I love the app! It's a great platform to read content. I do have one complaint; The paid to read stories should be less expensive. Many people who use Tapas are teens who can't afford to buy ink. Even when we watch ads for ink it takes a long time to pay for even one chapter. We prefer to use that ink to tip our favorite creators. Other than that a great app!

  • The app keeps shutting down

    by Janay_iz_dead

    (I actually mentioned this issue on you’re guys Instagram and it said to contact you guys so I hope this is good enough i do not know if I have to email you guys but if it doesn’t fix I will try to do that) I love this app I’ve used it for many years (I think since I 10 or so I’m 15 now) and never had a problem as I use it on my iPhone but recently since a few months ago I can’t remember exactly when it started (sorry for that) the app has started shutting its self down countless times upon me using it for ex I was reading SE;ki and I could maybe get trough two more newly updated comics before in the middle of me reading it would just down and from that moment it will happen 2-3 more times out of no where until I just give up and stop using it for some time and when I choose to use it again it just shuts down again at first I thought it was just my phone but than I gotta new one and it is still happening I’m guessing this is just on mobile device because I use it on my laptop though it’s slow as heck so I don’t prefer it but on that it does not shut down only on my iPhone so please fix this I love this app so very much and I don’t want to have to go back to reading webtoon T~T it isn’t as good!

  • by HEATHER ROBERSON

    Lots of good comics! Like how they are saved and your able to view them. To me it is more organized compared to other comic apps. Also like how you have other ways to earn inks instead of spending cash when reading premium comics. Even if you do spend cash you get a good amount of links for you moneys worth. Also love how there isn't a limit on how many comics you can subscribe to.

  • by Lizzy Burk

    It's a nice app to read comics and it also has a variety too. The only thing I marked it down for (I've already mentioned it before on a different platform and I know they are working on it) is the fact that ink, which is used to read and support the comic and their creators, is kind of hard to obtain.

  • Wonderful comics

    by BlakeK173

    Don’t get me wrong, I think the Tapas app runs really well, especially on my kind of old phone. It’s very easy for me to find and read all the comics in my library and there are a lot of great comics to enjoy. All the comics I have in my library are spectacular. Honestly I don’t really feel as if Tapas is the place for books as it’s been a comic site for so long but you do you. The main issue is that it seems to be getting harder to get to the regular creator-made comics rather than the “Tapas Exclusive” pay-to-read ones. You were really doing well with the new tab you had that featured comics and then you’ve replaced that with another page for your pay to read comics and books. I love your app and the comics on it, but please try to stay true to your original base and focus at least a little more on your everyday creators rather than your sponsored ones. Besides this, your app runs really well. I rarely have issues with it and everything works smoothly. I can appreciate the work all the developers have put into it and the coin system works well. Nice job.

  • Favortie app!!! But...

    by Misspuppy123

    I love everything about this app. If I were to relate this to anything else, it would probably be like Wattpad but with comics. There are so many great comics and stories you’ll be bound to find something you enjoy. Everything is so addictive including purchasing comics or stories with coins. I’ll admit it’s so worth it when you have enough coins to purchase an episode but it takes too much farming. The ads are only worth 10 coins and yeah you can buy coins with money of course but it’s so expensive if you do it often. I just wish watching ads gives more coins. Also a big big problem I’m having is crashing! With the new update I’ve crashed once every 2-3 minutes. I really hope this gets fixed soon because I don’t think I can continue going back on the app over and over again.

  • by Natalia González Domínguez

    Everything would be easier if there were a Genre for "GL". It is unfair, that there is one for "BL" and not for the other one. I have to go genre by genre looking for "GL" depending of what I would like to read (fantasy GL, slice of life GL, blabla) and it is a shame because there are really a lot of good stories.

  • Pretty Decent Comic Platform

    by fatso flo

    Some premium comics are worth it. I do wish updates were more consistent (I have a few particular premium comics in mind), or at least the author could upload some message to explain why they can’t update and maybe some time estimate for when they will be back... Some little things in the app are inconsistent, like the “top comments” repeat in the next episode. Also not sure if ratings are just a thing on the Google Play Store app and not on the Apple version... but it’s a shame I don’t see them on the Apple app because they can be helpful. I like the new scrolling and arrows functions to go to the next episode, but i wish the app kept the swiping motion when you’re at the very top or at the bottom of the comic. It’s easier for when I’m just trying to rapidly unlock the episodes. However, I’ll admit it was very annoying when I would scroll down the episode while reading and accidentally swipe a little too much to the side and it would go to the next episode, so I’m thankful for the new features.

  • Only One Problem to Fix

    by Renn201716

    The UI is intuitive and visually comprehensive, and the comics I read are absolutely fantastic. However, I have one complaint: it’s really unfriendly to users who don’t make in-app purchases. Some comics are free all the way through, some you have to wait for episodes if you don’t want to pay, and then there are plain old paid comics. There is no indicator on a comic that determines whether or not it is paid (there is a symbol for “wait to read” but no others). For someone like me who can’t afford it, i hate getting 10 episodes in just to learn i’ll never be able to read the rest. I have absolutely nothing against paying for comics (artists need money too) but I do have something against an app that doesn’t allow you to search by free comics, or even see if a comic is free at all without reading it. I understand it’s to encourage users to spend money but that doesn’t mean it’s not a shortsighted design choice. If this were fixed, Tapas would deserve a five-star review without a doubt.

  • by Alice Alderson

    update to my previous review - they fixed the bug that made the delete button not work, but now they've removed the option to purchase all available episodes of a series. I have no idea why they removed this - if a series is complete I'm not going to purchase episodes one by one. please fix this issue.

  • New Update

    by Yumi Kwa

    Yes, there’s some new mechanics that the new update had brought to us, like the library. I don’t dislike the new way you find comics, but I also don’t entirely love it either. You can find your comics more easily, they’re put into different area base on what you, the read, has marked them under. For example, an episode you liked would just go into to liked category, the ones with just updates will go to their special category, and so on and so on. I enjoy that because you can, once again, find thinks you most wish to pick. The only thing I dislike like is how thy changed the comic listing. When I opened up the comic tab to view all of the comics I’ve saved, I was expecting the comics to be in a 3 comic row (I’m on a phone). But once I had opened it up the comics were in ones straight line, and for people like me that have saved many comics, it’s just hard looking for the one you want to read. Personally I don’t need why that update was required other than fixing some minor bugs

  • by Nønäîmê Çåt

    is gud Its a simple comic app with many genes! it also comes with premium books, to unclock episodes you can either get ink(earning it or just paying) or just waiting for the episodes to be free! I cant say its the best but i wouldnt say its the worse, download it and try it yourself! btw you can make your own comics!

  • Good but marred by stupid UI mistakes

    by Makosuke

    The good: - It displays comics well - You can pinch to zoom (really important feature for some comics) - It’s light on data transfer for mobile use - You can pre-download comics if you’re going to be on a plane or something - Coin buying and use for non-free comics is very smooth - Ads are unobtrusive The bad/annoying - They recently rather randomly changed it so that comics always show the first rather than most recent episode at the top AND there is no way to change the default, so if it’s a comic you read regularly you have to tap the re-sort button EVERY TIME - The notifications system doesn’t like it when you change your iOS notification settings from the default. I for example disable audible alerts but use banners and lock screen alerts, but the settings keeps complaining that I have notifications disabled (this is an improvement; for s while it wouldn’t even let you enable notifications if you had something custom) - They have a tendency to break stuff for no reason; both of the above worked fine in earlier versions and were arbitrarily broken in minor updates - I have had the app repeatably hard freeze and crash on animated panels in some comics, to the point I could not read that comic in the app - it keeps bugging me with popovers about paid comics and promos I have no interest in, and this cannot be disabled If it weren’t for the arbitrary bad changes and bugs it would be a great app.

  • by PixlPrince

    Unlike some other webcomic sites, Tapas supports and advertises LGBT stories and creators. Censorship rules are not harsh and they encourage supporting creators. Very easy to find content that isn't yaoi (in the sense of being offensive to gay people) and navigation through the app is good.

  • by W0lf. exe

    I honestly love reading on this app, especially when I'm offline. I sadly can't upload my webcomic, Secrets of Our Lives, through mobile. Other than that, Tapas works great!! Its my favorite webcomic app to share my story on and to read great stories.

  • Where are my comics

    by Sly386

    Okay so first off, after one update i cant find all of my comics on the app, only the most recently updated ones and the ones i read last, which are the recently updated ones. I can’t find the actual list of ALL of my comics on the phone app. I can on the website but not on the phone app. Secondly, i HATE the monthly pop ups. This isnt a terrible thing but there is a pop up usually about the newest comic or an app to gain ink (as of writing this review it was the switch from Coins to Ink) and you have three options: Read, Not now, or Never show this again. I hit “Never Show this again” after reading it because i dont need to see it every time I open the page only to find that the pop up keeps appearing but that option is gone now. Now every time I open the app i have to see “Coins are now Ink! Find out why.” And i HAVE to close it... Please fix All comics so i can re-read old comics not just the recently updated ones Please fix the pop ups.

  • by Max Coats

    I love this app so much! All great comics and gives you the best recommendations! The wait for free is helpful, and gets me really excited. I just wish there was an easier way to get ink (basically money) to buy episodes rather than waiting.

  • love the app but...

    by 9284828

    I really love the app and how it’s been able to show me creators and their comics from all over the world but the app keeps crashing. I don’t know if this is just me but if I use the app for too long (around 20 minutes) it crashes. It also crashes whenever I want to rotate my phone to read the comic horizontally, and recently it’s also started to freeze my phone and crash whenever I use the app for a long time (about an hour). I’ve stopped using the app as much because it’s just gotten annoying at this point. That’s not the only thing either, more than once the app has logged me out of my account for no reason. I’ve had to log in multiple times and even then the app would sometimes say that my account doesn’t exist. I love what tapas does for readers and creators but I can’t read anything when the app is being so annoying. Please fix this soon.

  • by WritingForTheLiving BookwormKy

    There may be some need to watch ads or play games for points but there is also a lot of good free comics and comics where you can wait to get them for free! I like this app because it also let's you donate points to creators that are letting readers look at their books for free. So donating to authors you love is also a fun task, plus you can talk to them and get comments back! Love this app and hope to see more authors getting supported on here!

  • A few things to improve...

    by Nozomi16

    Well, since I’m here, and the “give us feedback” in the app won’t let me send anything, I might as well get these all out there... Getting very frustrated with the notification settings! I only want it to notify me when the series I’m following is updated, and instead it keeps sending me other things. I’ve gone into settings and turned off everything but the new episodes notification, and then a while later I get a notification for something I’d turned off. I load the app again and check settings, and everything’s turned back on! Please fix this! The other thing I find really annoying is that there is nothing to tell you which comics are free and which require coins to get past a couple of episodes. I know the coins are to help the creators and that’s fine, but we readers should at least be aware of if we’re going to have to pay to read or not before we get into the story.

  • by Andy Nunez

    What I love about this app is that there are so many story's in here you have a lot of options but what I hate is that to go read more of them u have to pay tapas or money to get tapes witch I'm not paying for but also I lovw that you have to wait for the next episode to be free because I hate when I finished a good book and it finally end and u have nothing else to do.

  • Excellent

    by Libby2235

    There’s so many stories with so many different genres to choose from. I really like this app because a lot of regular artists can set motion to comic ideas they’ve had without much hassle and out to a wide audience. Also, I like how this app has such a huge collection of comics and stories to choose from; I love web comics and I’ve always found it hard to find western web comics all in one place without having to physically go to the website the comic is on, nothing wrong with Manhwas or Mangas but I’ve been reading those for years, western comics deserve attention too. By far, this has to be my favorite web comic service/app ever. Oh! I also want to add that while also containing a multitude of western comics, there are also plenty of Asian comics on there as well. Like I said, this app is really great.

  • I Enjoy this App, However...

    by jengerjengerjenger

    I couldn’t bring myself to purchase a series I like at full price due to the translators changing the names of the characters. I was already familiar with the series and the names of the characters before this official English translation, so it just felt weird and wrong. Fortunately, there was a sale, so I was able to buy it for 80% off. I’ve noticed several platforms doing this, not just Tapas, and it’s really disheartening to see as an Asian-American. It’s even more disheartening considering the fact that the Tapas staff consists mostly of Asians as well. I think a character’s identity is important and I don’t think translators need to alter their identities in order to appease us English readers. Others may not think of it as a big deal, but I think it’s a big F-U to the creators who spent time creating these names and a reminder that people really don’t care to familiarize themselves with another country’s culture because it’s too much work. When it comes to films or other works, no one would dare rename a character. The whole world knows these characters by one name and one name only - the name they were given by the writer. Imagine if Naruto was translated to Nathaniel. Off-putting, right? It doesn’t have the same impact and doesn’t even feel like the same story. So please, let’s stop this already.

  • by apple avalanche

    I love this app! it's a good comic platform and there is plenty of variety. However, the current update changed quite a few things. Most are good, but they decided to get rid of the option to buy all the episodes at once (which is, frankly, idiotic). Also, when you unlock a free episode, you have to find the series and start the timer from the start. I was quite content with how the app worked before, but then again, I'm open for change. I would appreciate if you fixed these issues.

  • Best thing thats happened to me.

    by outfigurable

    i discovered Tapas over the website and multiple specific comics, as i noticed they were all on the same platform. Comic reading is my passion, and Tapas makes it easier to do that. unlike many people, i really like the coins system, as i have read whole stories by just watching ads. but its sad how it keeps getting less and less. first it was around 26 coins, then it was 21 (and sometimes 100? that was a glitch that made me happy haha) and then it decreased to 12 and now its 10. now, i get that you need more money, and i support that, but seriously? do i have to watch 36 ads for a chapter? but now, Tapas is a part of my LIFE. i go on it daily, and if not, the next time for even longer. As a somewhat fellow artist its become my DREAM to work with all those amazing artists on Tapas. sadly, though, theres currently a bug for me where i cant do anything other than going to my library, because it crashes. if i click on the Mail, it crashes. if i click on a story in my library, it crashes. i hope you can fix this soon, as its making me sad not to be able to read my daily dose of comics. thank you very much for reading , and have a great day/evening/afternoon.

  • by Jordan Hiltz Haughn

    I absolutely love this app! I've been using it for years and I'm beyond happy with the content. There are loads of free to read comics, as well as comics you can pay to read (using Ink, which you can earn by simply watching ads as well). Anyone who wants a simple way to keep tabs on the creators they love should give this a try!

  • REALLY GREAT but has a problem rn

    by FrostyEmpressGreenIceWolf

    This app is an extremely good one. I love it's content, the way helps creators, and it's logical system of coins and keys. Speaking of which, I especially like how you can earn free coins by simply watching adds. I usually watch adds on my phone (an iOS 10.3 running iPhone 5) but now I cannot. Every time I attempt to open the free coins tab the app crashes. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the Tapas app and it still doesn't work. I am writing this review because when I tried the give feedback option it told me to set up an email which I have already done. It was unable to send an email to the developers. However, this is a true five star app that I love and use daily. Without this small irritation it is pretty much perfection.

  • by ty leigh

    I don't like how it's set up and I HATE how in the new update everybody around me can see what I've been reading as soon as I open the app because of the new continue reading bar, at least put it in my favourites section and not on the home page, duh

  • Bugs

    by KreeperHater

    I have been having a problem and it wasn’t like this until just now. It’s bugging out so that when I go to the next chapter of a comic I’m reading, and I’m already halfway through reading it, it glitches and goes back to the chapter before that, that I already read. I lose my spot in the chapter I was reading after that chapter it glitched to and I have to exit off, go back to the list of chapters, manually go back to the chapter I was just reading, and find my spot again. It did this a bunch of times already for one comic I am currently reading and it’s annoying. Not only that but for the first time, since I have had this app, it crashed on me just right now. Please fix this and I’ll fix my rating. It’s seriously irritating.

  • GIVE ME MY COINS PLEASE!!!!

    by Littlebutterfly0130

    Tapas was great with awesome comics, literally no complaints. Then one day Tapas logged me out of my account, which had around 5,000 coins but my fault there since I don’t remember my account info. Now for my new account I can’t get coins. I recently did one of the promotions where you get an app and complete it at a certain level, but I didn’t get the coins. I know I did it right since that’s how I got 5,000 coins on my old account. Now recently, I actually bought coins and they didn’t transfer to my account, but I understand that sometimes you have to wait at least 24 hours..... so that’s what i’m gonna do. Please let me know if I’m doing something wrong.

  • Good but-

    by XxEeveeLeexX

    I actually very much enjoy this app and the website in general. Its very nice and easy to follow all of my favorite artists but my issue is, Why do I bother to save coins for comics when my coins end up disappearing and I end up with nothing saved? The coin system for comics is very frustrating because it seems like all of my coins disappear. I save up coins to tip artists and unlock comics yet I can’t do that when I have none for some mysterious reason. Please fix this issue because its frustrating. If it doesn’t happen i’ll most likely end up removing the comics that require coins to unlock or moving to a different website/app to follow my favorite artists. The first few times it happened I didn’t care much, i just watched ads to get them back. Now its bothering me too much to ignore anymore. I can only watch so many ads.

  • Support the authors <3

    by Mego💛💙💜💚❤

    There are almost no ink ads anymore, I don’t know if it’s because it’s the holidays or because the update is trash and scared off investors, but I used to be able to sit there for hours watching ads and raking up hundreds of coins, now 90% of the time I can’t even watch 1 ad let alone enough to actually do anything. Thank God the comics I read are free because I can’t afford to do more than tip the author whenever it’s actually possible, especially now Also, bring back the old tipping set up! This one is confusing and clunky and inhibits my ability to watch ads en mass with relative ease 😡😡😡 The donation log should be in a separate tab of the tip window. Since we use ink now just change the animation for the tip to droplets splashing out or something and leave the set up the nice smooth way that it was

  • Great Comics, but glitch in system

    by fruittartacus

    I love tapas comics, there is a ton of great free content as well as content to purchase. Even if you never purchase there is a lot to choose from, but I recommend trying one out if you fancy it. Only problem I’ve been having recently is that the app won’t open certain comics and actually has an error message saying it isn’t available on the app and you have to look on tapas online. I thought it was weird because it never did it before, but now at least half if not more of the comics I read cannot be accessed on the app and the number is increasing daily. I have an updated iPhone, and the app on my phone shows it has no updates to do, so I hope the company looks into this soon otherwise I might just have to delete the app and look online 😭.

  • Stop begging!

    by dadsacop

    I downloaded this app to support some friends whose work I really enjoy. As a result it’s important to me to get notified right away when they post something! However when you turn notifications on, the only thing you get notifications for is when this app is begging for more money. Buy tokens, buy a chapter of a book I don’t read nor will I ever read, buy a subscription... meanwhile I am not getting notifications for the books I actually care about !! If there would be away to turn off the pandering and only get notifications for the stories and NOT “deals” or other forms of begging this app would be great. I also don’t think it’s very friendly to new comic artists considering how much they shill for people who already have massive followings on multiple platforms.

  • LOVE this app!!

    by Stacybh

    I just discovered this app a few days ago, and I’m LOVING it!! Not only are there a bunch of incredible stories on here, they are very largely stories with excellent representation of queer, disabled, POC, and otherwise marginalized folks, both as writers and as characters. As a queer, disabled, middle-eastern, Jewish comics lover, this makes me extremely happy!! I also really like the coin system, because it allows me to unlock chapters solely by watching ads instead of by paying for them, while also giving me the option of avoiding ads altogether if that is my preference. The ability to tip creators is also really cool!! Thanks for making such a great app!!

  • FrEaKiNg OUt

    by LUV_PANDAS🐼🎼😶😶

    I love Tapas, it’s one of my favorite apps to read. The variety of genres they have is excellent. I like how they don’t just have comics but also include stories and novels. A really popular comic I’m reading right now is “Demons Can’t Be Pretty”. Fantastic set up on the comic. I didn’t really favor when I completed a special offer and didn’t receive the coins but all was resolved soon. One thing that irks me with the new update (4.1.0) is the set up for the library. I don’t particularly like how they have your added stories stacked instead of the grid look. I hope they change it back to the grid look but one can only tell. Overall in my opinion I believe Tapas is a terrific app and I recommend it to other people.

  • Love this app, but...

    by Lullibyy23254

    Really love tapas, I do, but the new continue reading section is driving me up the wall. I am a bit of a completionist so I don’t like having the continue reading section on my screen because it means i haven’t totally finished reading one of my bookmarks. ‘Sarah’s scribbles’ character wrapped in her little blue blanket is mocking me from the abyss as we speak because of this bug that doesn’t remove it from my continue reading section. It wants me to read “ep. 0” but episode 0 obviously doesn’t even exist and it’s driving me crazy opening my phone to see her sitting there staring at me all day. Please fix this bug I’m going crazy, I have gone through every page in the whole comic just trying to get it to go away and it won’t.

  • Great but annoying

    by Rainblaze

    This app is great for free comics and finding new ones. However it will give you notifications to no end and have that (1) on its app EVERY DAY. It’s becoming so tedious I’m considering deleting it entirely, since it fools me into thinking I may have an important email or something in its app folder. ..don’t get me wrong. I’ll take notifications for when there’s comic updates. But a constant daily remind of “check out the daily mix” or whatever is getting on my nerves. Especially when I get a buzz during class and it’s this app. That and also, the app does not seem to change its homepage and recommendations often, nor does it base it on your likes or genres. Either that or they only choose to show trashy manga romance upfront.

  • I love tapas but..

    by ..yeah.

    I have been using Tapas to read comics for awhile. I liked it because it had many different genres, and you didn’t have to pay to get good comics. I also enjoy the exclusive comics that don’t cost a lot to read. I do have one complaint though. When tapas made a recent update, I can’t seem to find the comics that are free. When you look in the genre section, it shows me all the exclusive comics. This may be just a problem with me not being able to work it properly, but the format of the app before was a little more simple and easier to use. Other than that, 10/10 app. Love it.!

    While some of you may not like that some of the comics you have to pay for what I enjoy most from this app is that you CAN support your favorite comics WITHOUT having to put in a credit card (this is really nice especially when your young and are too broke to pay) You can watch ads and support those authors who have made you laugh and cry and if you can’t watch the ads (it takes a long time and lots of patience T.T) you can buy some and give it to them it I hope that if your a fan of comics or novels you will try this app out because it’s the best^^

  • Gifted free episodes

    by anhsnowanimuboi

    This app is great, but i have only one problem is that in the gift box at the premium tab they sometimes give you free episode for some comics. There was one where the comic was already in the waiting process for me to read. I took the free episode and thought that if the previous episode is already waiting then i can use this free ticket on another episode so i get two ep at the same time. But after reading the free ticket ep, the previous one that was in waiting process skipped the waiting and went to another episode after the free one. So i now cannot reading the half waiting episode so i dont get the full story. Tapas needs to fix this.

    by SolarisSkies

    I really love tapas whether it is the app or the website. Or that what it was like. Now, recently I got a new iPhone and when I went to reinstall the tapas app from the App Store it said that it wasn’t allow in my country (USA both in app and in real life) and so I had to go through my already purchased apps to get to it. Everything was fine I logged on and got to a certain place in a comic I’m reading when it crashed. And it kept crashing every time I would try to move from one page to another. Anyone know what is happening? Any knowledge would be appreciated.

  • Upsetty

    by Ambar Isabel

    So ever since the last update it hasn’t been letting me read and of my favorited stories. As soon as i click on a chapter the whole app freezes and i can’t go back, forward or even scroll because well the pages aren’t showing up. I’m getting upset because all my favorites are updating but i can’t read any of them you know? I even logged in and out and nothing. It’s really upsetting although this is happening i still give it a 5 star because i love this app and i trust you will fix it.

  • I enjoy this app

    by Sea turtle 159

    Tapas is an amazing app that allows you to read comics as you please, find amazing creators, and will notify to tell you if any of your comics are available. To continue, although the app allows you to read comics, some you have to use coins in order to get the next chapter or the whole comic, whether completed or not. Also, if you run out of coins, you’ll have to wait until you get more. Otherwise, I think this app is wonderful as it allows the reader to see all different types of creators and their amazing ideas. The app will also tell you when a comic updates. All in all, this app is enjoyable.

  • uhh help

    by Thumbalina2004

    Really good app. You have to pay for chapters but they’ve got really good deals. However I’ve been experiencing a very troublesome issue. I’ll buy a chapter but it’s done a weird thing. I know I’ve bought the next chapter but it won’t say that. I could be on chapter 45 having already bought 46 yet it says buy chapter 48 first. I’ve tried all ways I could think of to fix it and none have worked. Closing the app, going out and clicking on said chapter, pressing next, none have worked. I’d really appreciate if this could be fixed so my money wouldn’t be wasted on chapters I’ve bought but can’t read.

  • Tapas

    by ARandomViewer

    To be completely honest, the app is great! There are so many different comics to read along with novels. It’s easy to use and everything is placed in convenient locations. My only problem with the app is the coin system. Let’s be serious, no one is going to spend $20 or more for coins. I’m not watching 30 adds for one episode either. Please make it cheaper or easier to get coins. It’s an inconvenience to have you to sit for an hour to get one unlocked episode. Thank you, ARandomViewer

  • Okay.

    by M3rmad3line

    Let me start this by saying it’s a good app. But. It’s frustrating that you can’t continue a series without having tons of ink. I get it. They need money. But what about Webtoons? It’s free. All of it. It’s sad that people lose interest in series just because they can’t pay for more ink. Their free ink offers are only 10 per add. (The adds aren’t very short.) And then I had to go through this whole fiasco where I didn’t even receive my ink! Pushing those problems away, the stories are fun to read and the authors are amazing. I would recommend it. But if your not willing to spend money to continue reading, i’d say skip this one out.

  • Amazing!! Hands down love it!!!

    by ashlyn xxx

    Amazing cite! Love the artiest and writers on here. It’s user friendly and easy to navigate. I like how you have the option to earn bit coins by watching videos instead of just having to spend actual money because some of us can afford it but we do love the stories and appreciate the creators hard work. By being able to earn bit coins we are still able too continue to read the story be we can also give back to the creators. Love Love Love.

  • Complete Offers thing isn’t giving me my ink

    by BruhItzEm_

    The app overall is really good and it has a lot of great original stories and the fact they let their viewer write and upload their own stories really expands the app. There is a lot of different genres and you can find anything you want in this app. It’s like a webtoon ya know? but, my only problem is that it won’t give me my ink after i do the offers. I should have about 3000 ink left from all my offers that i did but after i finished it didn’t give me anything. So i went on the Help page and did everything in my reach but it didn’t help at all. G i v e m e m y i n k p l e a s e

  • Great App

    by MonkeyTeamAlpha

    I love this app, it’s been my major gateway into reading comics regularly. I constantly check for and keep up with my subscribed stories, and I love the variation I’ve seen with all the different authors and artists. The reason I give this app four stars, though, is that I wish there was a different sorting system, such as through tags or something, so that I could more easily search for a specific sub genre, or a way to search through older archived comics/stories to better find the gems in the bunch. Otherwise, my experience has been great thus far!

  • 30 ads for one chapter

    by Lee Utley

    Look, I’ll be frank. I really wanted this app because there were some comics I couldn’t read anywhere else. And that’s great. You guys have a pretty decent selection. But the ink is just too much. I shouldn’t have to watch 30 ads just to read one chapter of a story. I think you guys could fix this by possibly making a check-in area where people get inks for signing in everyday or perhaps lowering the ink cost for one chapter. I understand that the creators get $ in turn for the inks, but with the way it is now it’s hard to read at all when you’re short on cash.

  • Can no longer log in

    by Kyro2009

    This site was great and all, and I can most definitely say there are comics I could totally binge read over and over again. But the huge problem is that I can no longer log in. I tried to reset my password, but then it would say “we were unable to find anything”... that makes no sense! Please, I hope you can fix this problem at some point because I love this app and wish to continue supporting the authors.

  • The messaging system

    by tealterror

    I’ve been using tapas for almost more than a year now and I must say that I do enjoy it! I love reading the comics on it and having others read my own, but I think that one aspect of the website needs to be integrated into the app. I think the app should also use the activity feed and profile page. I believe it’d be nice for those who don’t use the web version as much as the app and tend to miss posts because of it and it’d be easier for creators to see who's commented or subscribed on the app when they’re on the go.

  • All the work no Rewards

    by Apple_zzk

    I follow all the rules to the offers I download the app they want me to then get to the level they want wait the 24 hours and not reward it’s been 2 days since I completed the reward and still no reward this app has wonderful comics that I love but is it worth it with all these other faults? You put all this effort for nothing! And this isn’t just me my friend who got me into this app has accomplished many of these offers with no reward and nowhere to send a complaint to. They really need to get their app in order especially the when it comes to their offers system.

  • I love the app but

    by Phony G

    Tapas is a really great app and I use it probably everyday. The only problem is that whenever I’m using the app, it’ll exit to my home screen. At first I thought this was just my phone being weird but I don’t think I’m the only one having this problem. It comes out of nowhere whenever I’m reading and it seems to become more and more frequent. I really hope this is fixed because I love the app but sometimes it can be very frustrating especially when I’m in the middle of reading of something!

  • Love the app but it needs some fine tuning!

    by Just Call Me Ricky

    I use Tapas pretty often but recently, after the most recent update, it’s been glitching a lot. For example: the app randomly closes sometimes, the app freezes sometimes, and it keeps saying i have to go the website to look at some of stories but those stories work after i subscribe to them. It wasn’t this way until very recently and I think it has to do with the update. Please fix this!! Plus can you add a place where the mobile users can see the updates and get more personalized notifications??

  • I like it but...

    by LemonDropCherryBomb

    It’s really fun. I like to read and read comics and it has all of it. One thing I would say it to make it easier to get coins. Like daily you can just get a small amount. If you don’t have any than you can only read certain comics or novels unless you pay money for it or do one of the challenges to earn them. The ones you can read for free aren’t as popular so it’s hard to stay up to date if you don’t have a lot or you just can’t get any coins at all. But over all I like it and stuff I can read is good.

  • Love Tapas! : update issue

    by Nicole h17

    The recent update isn’t working. When I open a story to read the screen freezes blank and I have to exit out of the app. I love this app. It’s easy to use and brings so many creators a friendly environment to share their work. I really like the tip system. It’s also really easy to post your work. It only took me a few minutes to understand the process. I hit 1k views in just a week. The reach this app has is incredible!

  • My thoughts

    by Rambler maniac

    I like this app overall, it’s a great place to find new creators with unique story ideas. That being said, it kind of annoys me when my inbox piles up with “free episode” messages because they’re essentially coupons that you have to use by the end of the week. And they’re either for series that I can’t afford to purchase more than one chapter of, or for a genres that I have no interest in (romance and mysteries). It’s also hard to collect coins to tip/purchase chapters unless you buy them with your credit card.

  • Update Needed

    by let us customize

    I consider the app great, however it’s sad how expensive it is to unlock just one episode a couple, I recommend try adding more surveys to complete for ultimate coins instead of buying for actual money that comes from your bank or watching ads and only receiving up to only 10,17,18 coins for long stepped ads. That would be amazing for other users and this app. So please add this if your planning to have a update to the app. Thank you. Sincerely, Storm

  • Amazing app! However...

    by Blue0422

    The app is pretty amazing. Even though you gotta pay certain comics with coins I still think this app for comics is awesome. However after using it for a while the inbox stopped recommending me comics to read as well the about info of an upcoming episode that will be free or certain amount of coins that will be given. I’m not to sure if this is a bug or not but I look forward seeing what Tapas is going to recommend me everyday through the inbox. I hope this is a bug that can be fixed.

  • Really Great App! But....

    by min.yummi

    The problem with this app is that u need 300 coins just to read one episode and they mostly tend to be really short and I don’t really like spending my money just for a couple of coins that will wither away but I the way to get free coins is to watch a ad only to get 10+ coins in return for 4 ads and that means u need to watch 20+ more ads just to get 300 coins to read one really short chapter of a story I really hope TAPAS lowers the amount of coins u need to read a chapter like something 50? Coins for each chapter

  • Good

    by OtakuOvGaming

    Would recommend, the app is great for finding nice comics and novels. However some of the more, intricate of each are under ‘Premium’. Premium requires you to spend coins; the way to get coins for free is to watch adds- however due to the update, the coins given after watching an add has lowered. The only way to experience a full premium comic is to watch 10 hours of adds. (Literally) Also whenever I attempt to click on a comic in my library- the app closes. This rarely happened before but it seems more bugs have been implemented in the latest update.

  • Hey that’s pretty good

    by Mlg mc swager pants

    I’ve had this for a year and its really good it’s got really good comics on there. They sell comic creators t shirts so I can get some SICK merch, also you can start from the beginning of the comic or the last place you left off you and you get notifications when your favorite comics update. The only thing I don’t like is that you have to pay money for keys and coins to read comics or to tip the comic creator but it’s fine

  • Writing on your phone

    by Ram854

    I do have a computer, don’t get me wrong. But I really wanna be able to update a novel or story without having to leave the comfort of my bed. I haven’t started writing on here cause I’d only be able to use my computer. Especially cause my school uses restrictions on their computers. So I wouldn’t be able to update it unless I’m in my house at the desk. Please consider making writing available on the phone, and if you have considered it, do it fast. It’ll really help.

  • Coins

    by yehdisgedgjshdhe

    In my opinion we shouldn’t be paying for coins because some of us are actually broke af! We should be supporting our favorite writers buy reading their stuff not by spending our money until we’re broke just so they know we support them! I’m literally about to delete this app because I’m broke and I really like the webcomics I’m reading too! I seriously hate webcomic apps that make us pay in order to show our love to the creators! It makes me feel like they only care about the money and not the actual people who support the app!

  • I like this app but it keeps crashing

    by janaymoore2

    I very much love this app and I think people should download it but my iPhone has if lately been crashing more and more often mostly if I use it for a long amount of time which makes it very unfortunate and makes me want to use the app more then I could I don't know if I'll continue using it until that glitch is fixed from the other reviews I see I'm not the only one with this problem I hope it's fixed.

  • Crashing?

    by Spank4all

    The app is a great place to read comics, but I seem to have a problem with the most recent version of this app on my iPad- it always crashes when I go to the 'Free Coins' page. It'll work just fine if I go to the store where you can purchase coins with real money, it seems to be that purely the 'Free Coins' page doesn't work. Hope that gets fixed, but great other than that!

  • Ink is a problem

    by Fangirlraven

    I 100% understand supporting artists. As an artist myself, I totally get it. Except it’s hard to keep reading when you have to give ‘Ink’ for each episode and that’s mostly because it’s way too expensive. You’ve got the option to watch ads but the ads take close to a full minute and you can only manage 10 coins for ink out of it. Most episodes cost 300. It’s really frustrating and needs to be fixed, please. Other than that this is a solid app that I stand behind.

  • Very fantastic

    by G_Lxl

    I love this app I’m always feeling empty and down about myself, I turn to this app that has so many wonderful story from the boy meets girl, to the lonely relatable characters. You’ll love this app if you like to read comic and story book style of telling their tales. There are some pay as you read item but I feather wait for the free stories. I wish I can live on this app forever.

  • Great Comics but...

    by eccentricconnoisseur

    This app has hundreds, possibly thousands of new and interesting comics and novels to read. However, the app makes it so that you have to either purchase coins or watch videos in order to read. If the video watching feature was more consistent and awarded slightly more coins, I would be giving this app 5/5. It's just unfortunate that can take ten minutes just to read one episode. Hopefully they will do some things in the future to make it slightly easier to earn coins.

  • Good app but the premium comics...

    by Meme13 🤓

    Overall I love Tapas. They have a good variety of comics you can read. I personally love to read the BL books that they have but unfortunately most of them are premium. I understand it’s to help pay the authors but I don’t like to wait almost 7 days for a comic chapter to go out free. It’s exhausting and I don’t have a lot of ink. I’d like it if you guys can make the waiting time a bit shorter. I really want to read my next chapter of Oh My Assistant XD

  • has everything BUT...

    by taepuccino

    i don’t mind waiting a week to read an episode. i think it’s amazing for those who can’t afford ink for whatever reason. what i don’t like is that it won’t apply to the last 3-5 episodes. there’s been many times where i’ll wait to read but then i see the description and i have no choice but to pay in order to see the ending. it completely dismisses the whole point of “waiting to read”.

  • I can’t change my password...

    by Awkward taco kat

    Okay, I’m pretty ticked right now... I’m needing to tell my reader that I’m going on a hiatus, and I can’t... for some reason I am not able to sign into my account on my computer. I’ve tried to reset my password, but it just takes me to the app to put in my current password... I can’t put my current password in if I don’t know it! I know I have my email right when I try to sign in, but it’s saying my password is invalid...

  • Lack of offers

    by game savior

    I like all the comics in here and I don’t have a pleonasm with ads or paying ink but the thing that does get me is the offers. Not that they don’t pay well or anything like that but the fact that it has only 3 or 4, I forgot. I accidentally downloaded 2 of them before I got this app so couldn’t get rewards from them anymore. Even 1 I downloaded and then erased it right after. I just want more offers.

  • Good content but app keeps crashing

    by Kirarz

    I have the latest update (v.4.11) but it keeps crashing. I didn’t have this problem before. It’s really annoying. Otherwise a good app, pretty easy to use with a mix of free and paid comics (it’s harder to find good free comics than good paid conics though). Lots of LGBTQ+ content, which I count as a plus. Tipping artists is pretty easy. I’m always wary about updating though because you never know when they’ll decide to completely change the app.

  • Review

    by Brownhawk3666

    I actaully highly enjoy this app/website to anybody. Yet the reply/comment system isn’t the best. Either way this app has many great stories and comics which make up for it. If you have a laptop I suggest to try and write a story, BUT before you do look at their standerds. Enjoy this app because it has been made by many people who carr for the enjoyment of others.

  • Constantly crashing

    by john hamm 26

    First off I want to put it that the app is great, I love reading comics on here but sometimes the print is too small to read in portrait mode, but whenever I try to read in landscape mode the whole thing crashes and force closes on me, I don’t know any other way to get to the developers to fix this glitch

  • Great app

    by cinnamonbunzzzz

    I love tapas!! I can read all kinds of things and it’s like a mini world at my fingertips 🙂 but there is just one problem. For some reason lately the episodes have been reading are glitching. The panels get all mixed up while it’s loading and I don’t understand the plot line. I would very appreciate it if it could get fixed ☺️ thank you 🙏

  • Great! I just wish ink was a little less grueling to get

    by izzy72203

    I love the comics and everything, just ink is a huge pain to obtain, 10 ink a video is like nothing when a single episode of what you want to read is 375 ink, and then you finally get to it and the episode takes 5 seconds to read because it’s 2 panels. Or I’ll do a survey, spend twenty minutes on it, and then it’ll tell me I’m not elegible and they wont be giving me the ink.

  • It's a really good app! [BIG SUGGESTION]

    by PinkyStars10k

    It's amazing, smooth, and has lovely and original content. That said, I think that it could REALLY use a more clean tag system, and give users the option to search & filter through tags ... Because it gets old trying to search for certain things by 1.name or 2.genre there are certain things that are more specific than that to me ... Two other nice but not as urgent ideas are Subscription to certain tags or filter combinations -- this would work really well if Tapas set a standard group of tags! And it would be nice to be able to subscribe to users/teams, as some people put out consistently good content.

  • I love Tapas but....

    by Andres76_Flor

    I love Tapas it has a lot of different book and comics that you can read it fascinating but the app keeps crashing when I’m reading and everytime I go back in to resume my reading it dosent save where I was at and when I try going back to the page that I was at it crashes by the time I get there so please fix this.

  • I love it but I have one tiny problem

    by paigealiseblair

    So I love it all the artist on there make beautiful art but when I buy coins so I can unlock and support the artists work it gives me a message that says "the purchase was successful but your coin balance could not be updated" I don't know if this has happened to anyone else but I need it fixed!!!

  • Review

    by StoryTeller00

    This all is great but like any other app it has its faults, #1) The time it takes to get a reward for a game takes a long time sometimes; and the reward may change without notice meaning no reward in the end. #2) The surveys are a little abstract and depending on the questions and answers then you may or may not qualify for the reward at the end. Other than these two things I love the work that the app features. How this helps you guys

  • Having a little difficulty

    by Hekon 31998

    I love all the books and comics I have been reading so far, but most require ink. I used to play the special offers that gave lots of ink, but I don’t get any special offers since the last update now which makes it difficult to get a lot of ink to read ( especially when it takes forever getting ink from the small ads)... Does anyone else have the same problem or is it just me?

  • Free coins: Ads

    by TrumpetGirl0820

    Hey tapas, so I’ve been watching ads lately, but there’s a problem when the ad is done; I’ll press the “x” to get my reward, but it just leads me to a grey screen. The only way I can get out of the screen is by closing the app, which in turn doesn’t get me a reward... is this a bug that you guys can fix please and thank you?

  • Good App

    by ItzWoolfie

    I like the stories on the app. There is a plentiful variety of comics to choose from. However, some (most) of these cost ink, which involves real currency. Some people dpn’t really like paying. My favorite comic genre is romance/BL, but a lot of them need ink to be read to full way. I understand and you can get free ink, but still that is not a ton that you can collect at once. It’s annoying you have to pay, with real money, for a comic that will not last you a lifetime.

  • IMPORTANT IF YOU WANT TO READ

    by Ssga2

    so i know, long time user. i haven’t payed once for a story. stay on the community tab for the best stories. i have about 24 stories at the moment i am readings all from the community tab and i couldn’t be happier! i’m rating 3 stars cause i gave up on the app in the first place thinking i had to pay for it. make the app a little clearer for the fact that you can read incredible stories for free and the app would get more recognition.

  • Love the app, there's a little problem though...

    by Buzz-Light-Year69-420

    I really enjoy using tapas, however since the last update, every time I try to turn my phone on it's side to read webtoons, instead of the screen readjusting, the app just shuts down. So now it's kind of difficult to read webtoons and webcomics on the app. Otherwise, it's a really great way to read interesting stories.

  • New update

    by v. bergstrom

    I like tapas a lot! I like being able to explore the different worlds through the webcomics. The only thing I don’t like lithe newest update. I am not able to see the top comments without having to press on the individual comments. Another thing is when I turn on infinite scrolling, it is very glitchy. And the only way to get rid of these glitches, is to exit he app. But beside those two things, I love the app!!

  • by akoru YT

    it's very good, but I have a problem, I can't get that much ink, but you could make a quest to get more inks ( like: read this comic for 5 minutes or login in 1 time to get 50 inks ). But I like the app it's very good, but you can get that much ink, I'm kinda disappointed, that can't get ink ( because some are kids that can't use real money or else they will get in trouble )

  • I’ve grown to like it, but there’s one problem

    by Averydisatisfiedplayer

    At first I thought that the whole thing with buying episodes was unfair, but I’ve learned that there are free comics which you can read all the way without having to earn ink. On these comics, you can give money to the creators without using actual money, but instead with earned ink. ( I think you’ll find that the comics you have to use ink on are worth it though ) However, there’s one problem with the ads. They have two kinds of ads, demos, or just stuff that you watch. Demos give you 22 ink each, while ads give you 10 ink each. Sounds fair, right? Well, the thing is, they don’t seem to check carefully enough about what kinds of ads go in each group. For example, I’ll find “ads” in the ad group that require you to play a demo before you can finish the ad. I’d think that counts as a demo but it’s in the ad section. I’d just like it if they could make sure the right types of ads are going into the right groups. But I don’t really know much about how they put ads in their app so I don’t know how hard it may be to group them. Anyways, this is a good app overall, as the creators are very polite and the app accommodates for those who don’t want to spend money or watch ads, but I wish they’d fix the grouping problem. Edit: They’ve changed their ink-earning system, but they use quizzes that almost always require your zip code. I personally would rather not give out my zip code, so I tried looking for one that didn’t require a zip code or email. I ended up finding one, however, the website I was linked to told me my account was suspended. This doesn’t make any sense to me since I’ve never seen that site before, and I also have a new phone. My point here is that they should probably include more offers that don’t need any valid information on where you are or who you are.

  • Complete Offers thing isn’t giving me my ink

    by BruhItzEm_

    The app overall is really good and it has a lot of great original stories and the fact they let their viewer write and upload their own stories really expands the app. There is a lot of different genres and you can find anything you want in this app. It’s like a webtoon ya know? but, my only problem is that it won’t give me my ink after i do the offers. I should have about 3000 ink left from all my offers that i did but after i finished it didn’t give me anything. So i went on the Help page and did everything in my reach but it didn’t help at all.

  • IOS

    by Emma-LOLipop

    The newest update where IOS readers can’t acquire all the comics, it says its blocks and to check out the website is very frustrating.

  • Can things change?

    by Citten10

    I love this app but I’m sad that they continue to block stories because they are not PG-13. The Artists that I’ve seen have sensors their drawings. There is also a warning that there is a mature content. It’s also very hard to earn ink to read stories which I’m sad about because there are very good stories I just can’t read them.

  • Great Comics, but glitch in system

    by fruittartacus

    I love tapas comics, there is a ton of great free content as well as content to purchase. Even if you never purchase there is a lot to choose from, but I recommend trying one out if you fancy it. Only problem I’ve been having recently is that the app won’t open certain comics and actually has an error message saying it isn’t available on the app and you have to look on tapas online. I thought it was weird because it never did it before, but now at least half if not more of the comics I read cannot be accessed on the app and the number is increasing daily. I have an updated iPhone, and the app on my phone shows it has no updates to do, so I hope the company looks into this soon otherwise I might just have to delete the app and look online 😭.

  • This app is great

    by Cherrydarling2472

    So I absolutely love this app and all the stories it provides... however with the new update when I try to read the newest chapter of a comic it freezes... the pop up menu for how much it will cost to see the next chapter is blank. It won’t let me click out of it either... I have to completely close the whole app to reset it.

  • Writing on your phone

    by Ram854

    I do have a computer, don’t get me wrong. But I really wanna be able to update a novel or story without having to leave the comfort of my bed. I haven’t started writing on here cause I’d only be able to use my computer. Especially cause my school uses restrictions on their computers. So I wouldn’t be able to update it unless I’m in my house at the desk. Please consider making writing available on the phone, and if you have considered it, do it fast. It’ll really help.

  • Promo/ invite codes

    by Uhsinsoxjbz

    Personally, I think that the Ink (for the episodes) are a good idea. I also think that the adds are a good idea to get free Ink. But, the invite/ promo code rule is stupid. As of right now, you can only use promo codes when you make a new account, meaning if you already have an account, there is no way that you can use a code. You only get 10 Ink per add, or 15 Ink per Playable add. (Right now the playable adds are not working on my device, I use an apple iphone). I find that very frustrating because, useably, each episode costs about 300 Ink, give or take a few depending if there is an special discount or event going on. That’s way to much Ink, if you are watching adds. I understand that the Comic/ novel authors need money, I truly do.

  • Gifted free episodes

    by anhsnowanimuboi

    This app is great, but i have only one problem is that in the gift box at the premium tab they sometimes give you free episode for some comics. There was one where the comic was already in the waiting process for me to read. I took the free episode and thought that if the previous episode is already waiting then i can use this free ticket on another episode so i get two ep at the same time. But after reading the free ticket ep, the previous one that was in waiting process skipped the waiting and went to another episode after the free one. So i now cannot reading the half waiting episode so i dont get the full story. Tapas needs to fix this.

  • Problem

    by loverofanamals

    I love this app but as soon as it updates some of my comics wont let me read the next episode even when i have the ink to unlock it ive never had this problem before so im hoping this can be a easy fix

  • Good, but not the best

    by A concerned average Joe

    I think the tapas design is good overall, and generally the app works really well, I just wish they would give a better approach towards featured comics. For instance, I also use WEBTOON, and have found their method a lot better, they make it so that the average joe can still read the comics, but those that want to pay, can still pay to get episodes in advance, which I personally believe is much better than forcing the obviously premium comics down everyone’s throat, Tapas should be a place for all readers and artists, not just those who can pay. There is however one thing that I’ve seen, which is an artist who is letting the comic be free until it’s complete, which encourages viewers to keep up with the comic, and doesn’t allow for anyone to feel left out. Another issue is the free ink system, not only does it limit how many comics I can read, it also segregates different groups. The way you can make the most ink is to take a survey, but those surveys aren’t marketed towards everybody, which marginalizes groups of people who just want to read another episode, or try out another comic. One last issue is the usage of wait for free, before it used to be a simple two days, or even one, but now it’s been moved up too a week, I understand this is so that the creator can stay ahead of the free readers, but they’re going to make us pay for the last few episodes anyways, so why not cut down the wait time to increase viewing. The system isn’t perfect, when it comes to the premium comics, but the app is still okay, I just hope they stop prioritizing making money over creating quality premium comics.

  • I can’t read my BL

    by @money bag

    So I was trying to read some of my favorite bl stories when it had said that that go to your website but when I did it would just send be right back to my app and could not still read the, that is my problem know and if it doesn’t work I would have to delete it but I really don’t want to

  • Eeeehhhhh

    by 😺 ❤️️

    Don’t get me wrong, this app is great. I literally yeeted ”WEBTOONS” out the window (I have other reasons) But I have a few problems with “Tapas” 1. The ads at the bottom of some comics (free or prime) are inappropriate. I’ve gotten several ads for “Undressing in an Elevator” which is VERY inappropriate. 2. I can never earn ink because “Demos”, “Short Ads” , and “Surveys” are always unavailable. 3. I don’t know if this was an update but a lot of premium comics I read are now unavailable in the app. A comic like “The Five Suits” stated the first season would be free so I was excited! But when I now go to read it it’ll say something like “We’re sorry, this comic is unavailable on the app, please go to this link: ....” Which is BS that we now have to go to “Safari” or “Google/Chrome” or that I have to log onto a computer to read a separate comic? 4. It is very hard to find smaller comics and creators. Now that the “Genre” section which listed genres like “BL” , “Romance” , “Fantasy” etc. is gone, it’s impossible to find new comics. So please add this back. 5. You have to remember to subscribe to the comic. I came from “WEBTOONS” wherein the 3rd episode of a comic, “WEBTOONS” would ask you: “Enjoying the comic? Consider subscribing!” and below this message, it would say “Subscribe!” And “No thanks” so I’m used to this system. On “Tapas” though, you never get a reminder or an easy-to-see button. So I always forget to subscribe. I remember this one REALLY GOOD BL comic and totally forgot to subscribe (I still can’t find the comic T^T) so I lost it in a sea of confusion and uneasy access to new comics. PLEASE add a reminder in the first 2-3 episodes/chapters automatically! Even if the author says it, I still don’t do it because there’s no easy way to subscribe. Thank you for reading and I hope you take what I’ve said into consideration.

  • Good app but the premium comics...

    by Meme13 🤓

    Overall I love Tapas. They have a good variety of comics you can read. I personally love to read the BL books that they have but unfortunately most of them are premium. I understand it’s to help pay the authors but I don’t like to wait almost 7 days for a comic chapter to go out free. It’s exhausting and I don’t have a lot of ink. I’d like it if you guys can make the waiting time a bit shorter. I really want to read my next chapter of Oh My Assistant XD

  • The app keeps shutting down

    by Janay_iz_dead

    (I actually mentioned this issue on you’re guys Instagram and it said to contact you guys so I hope this is good enough i do not know if I have to email you guys but if it doesn’t fix I will try to do that) I love this app I’ve used it for many years (I think since I 10 or so I’m 15 now) and never had a problem as I use it on my iPhone but recently since a few months ago I can’t remember exactly when it started (sorry for that) the app has started shutting its self down countless times upon me using it for ex I was reading SE;ki and I could maybe get trough two more newly updated comics before in the middle of me reading it would just down and from that moment it will happen 2-3 more times out of no where until I just give up and stop using it for some time and when I choose to use it again it just shuts down again at first I thought it was just my phone but than I gotta new one and it is still happening I’m guessing this is just on mobile device because I use it on my laptop though it’s slow as heck so I don’t prefer it but on that it does not shut down only on my iPhone so please fix this I love this app so very much and I don’t want to have to go back to reading webtoon T~T it isn’t as good!

  • Love it buuuut

    by you can do it to

    After the newest update I can’t read some chapters. It will pop up with a yellow white screen at the bottom then only allow me to choose free ink option. I have over 8,000 ink so I should be able to read next chapter.... I don’t like the newest update.

  • Its a good app but help

    by zeromight

    I love reading all the stories and I love the app but I try reading some and I get far but now there not letting me read it on the app but it lets me read it on the website please fix this i don't like switching back and forth between the app and the website please fix this

  • Awesome App! Positive Freedom... unlike other apps.

    by AJennyWitAHoodie

    An amazing app that makes amazing comics, though it does kick me off at times, I was wondering why many of the stories I’ve been subscribed to, that have been on the app for months or even years, have been taken off and can only be seen “online” Please change that condition, if it wasn’t a mistake. Besides that, great app 😊

  • Love this app, but...

    by Kargeaux

    The main reason I’m not giving a fifth star on Tapas, is because I’m experiencing a minor problem. So I’ve noticed, on one of my favorite comics, that’s it’s “not available on the app” when it’s been there for years. This isn’t with this certain comic either, it’s with many I’ve noticed. I don’t know if this is just happening to me, but Tapas, if you happen to notice this review, please, fix this issue. Now, before I’m able to end this review, it tells me to go to the website. At first I said,”Okay, a little weird, but I’ll go check it out” so I go to Tapas.io, and the website doesn’t even work! And some others are probably questioning why I don’t read other comics available, well, there is this one comic I want to read, but you need to pay for it. Understandable, but I’ve already looked at the other selection of genres/comics, and did not find one that I could get into. So, if anyone is experiencing the same issue; please right a review about it, this needs to be brought up to attention.

  • Love the app but it needs some fine tuning!

    by Just Call Me Ricky

    I use Tapas pretty often but recently, after the most recent update, it’s been glitching a lot. For example: the app randomly closes sometimes, the app freezes sometimes, and it keeps saying i have to go the website to look at some of stories but those stories work after i subscribe to them. It wasn’t this way until very recently and I think it has to do with the update. Please fix this!! Plus can you add a place where the mobile users can see the updates and get more personalized notifications??

  • I can’t read certain books

    by Tri_cky

    Tapas is a amazing app and it love it until today when the app wouldn’t let me read certain books ,and I think it might have to do with the new update but I’m not sure please fix it

  • Lack of offers

    by game savior

    I like all the comics in here and I don’t have a pleonasm with ads or paying ink but the thing that does get me is the offers. Not that they don’t pay well or anything like that but the fact that it has only 3 or 4, I forgot. I accidentally downloaded 2 of them before I got this app so couldn’t get rewards from them anymore. Even 1 I downloaded and then erased it right after. I just want more offers.

  • great!

    by Kitty x]

    the only thing i would really like to see changed is being able to see a creator’s entire profile like how it is on the desktop version. i would really like to see their comments and status updates that they post instead of having to go on desktop for it. otherwise good job!

  • Great stories but constant glitching

    by kaylaskyy

    I really enjoy Tapas but recently in the middle of a chapter the app will suddenly close and lose my progress in that chapter. It’s very annoying and putting me off of Tapas even though it is a great app besides the glitches.

  • So smart

    by valuiouh

    I love how they split the comics into genres and include a genre for bl and yaoi instead of putting it in the romance section. Love this app no complaints

  • Great app, but needs some review

    by śhäkįštan

    I have been using this app a lot lately, and it is a really great app. However, while I’m reading a comic, the app will randomly shut down, repeatedly. I would appreciate it if this could be looked into, because I know many other people have a similar problem.

  • Having a little difficulty

    by Hekon 31998

    I love all the books and comics I have been reading so far, but most require ink. I used to play the special offers that gave lots of ink, but I don’t get any special offers since the last update now which makes it difficult to get a lot of ink to read ( especially when it takes forever getting ink from the small ads)... Does anyone else have the same problem or is it just me?

  • Gotta annoy me

  • There is a glitch

    by Dreadfully Artless

    I throughly enjoy the comics I’m able to read, but lately I’ve notice that there is an extremely annoying glitch. If I turn my phone or tablet sideways is completely shuts down the app. I hope it’s fixed soon.

    I love this app and I spend hours on it but I really annoys me that any time I tilt my phone it kicks me out of the app

  • love the app but...

    by 9284828

    I really love the app and how it’s been able to show me creators and their comics from all over the world but the app keeps crashing. I don’t know if this is just me but if I use the app for too long (around 20 minutes) it crashes. It also crashes whenever I want to rotate my phone to read the comic horizontally, and recently it’s also started to freeze my phone and crash whenever I use the app for a long time (about an hour). I’ve stopped using the app as much because it’s just gotten annoying at this point. That’s not the only thing either, more than once the app has logged me out of my account for no reason. I’ve had to log in multiple times and even then the app would sometimes say that my account doesn’t exist. I love what tapas does for readers and creators but I can’t read anything when the app is being so annoying. Please fix this soon.

  • Constantly crashing

    by john hamm 26

    First off I want to put it that the app is great, I love reading comics on here but sometimes the print is too small to read in portrait mode, but whenever I try to read in landscape mode the whole thing crashes and force closes on me, I don’t know any other way to get to the developers to fix this glitch

  • Love the app, there's a little problem though...

    by Buzz-Light-Year69-420

    I really enjoy using tapas, however since the last update, every time I try to turn my phone on it's side to read webtoons, instead of the screen readjusting, the app just shuts down. So now it's kind of difficult to read webtoons and webcomics on the app. Otherwise, it's a really great way to read interesting stories.

  • great app, however...

    by mouna-lee

    okay, so if you’re looking for a wide variety of comics, tapas is the perfect app. recently though I’ve been having major problems with the app crashing randomly. this isn’t an “every blue moon” situation either. it’s becoming rather frequent and very annoying. I love tapas a lot and I’d hate to drop it because of a glitch like this. please do something, developers!!

  • Good content but app keeps crashing

    by Kirarz

    I have the latest update (v.4.11) but it keeps crashing. I didn’t have this problem before. It’s really annoying. Otherwise a good app, pretty easy to use with a mix of free and paid comics (it’s harder to find good free comics than good paid conics though). Lots of LGBTQ+ content, which I count as a plus. Tipping artists is pretty easy. I’m always wary about updating though because you never know when they’ll decide to completely change the app.

  • Sent back to home screen

    by KillerGOW

    I see a few problems with this app, but the biggest one is where it crashes out of nowhere and sets the comic you are currently reading go back a few pages. Last time I was reset nearly thirty comic pages and it made me mad since it does this with nearly every comic I’ve read.

  • I love the app! but....

    by ucjdnsjx lsbskd dlsbskkwj

    I love the app itself the only problem though is that you can’t do much on the app. Anything involving publishing or editing your own stories has to be done on the website, not the app, which is a bit frustrating. Other than that I love the app! Tons of great comics and novels and a chance to put your own works out there.

  • Amazing!! However.......

    by Disnauris

    Every time I try to send a code to get 200 ink, it doesn’t work, at all... can you please fix it??

  • I love the app but

    by Phony G

    Tapas is a really great app and I use it probably everyday. The only problem is that whenever I’m using the app, it’ll exit to my home screen. At first I thought this was just my phone being weird but I don’t think I’m the only one having this problem. It comes out of nowhere whenever I’m reading and it seems to become more and more frequent. I really hope this is fixed because I love the app but sometimes it can be very frustrating especially when I’m in the middle of reading of something!

  • Crashes a lot

    I adore reading comics on this app, but it crashes for me all the time. Ill open it, it crashes, I try again, it crashes again. And it freezes when I try to even read the comments, let alone leave one. Its really starting to get on my nerves.

    Good app, this isn’t what the review is about. Everytime I go into the comments, try to write a comment, view the replies of my own comments... the app freezes. I have to restart the app and when I go back to doing anything that relates to the comment section it does the same thing. I go to the comment section. It works for a few seconds. It freezes. I restart the app. Repeat. It’s super annoying, so can you please fix this?
