    Fantastic. Very clear layout and very easy to search for a series or genre of comic/novel to read! The only downside is the free tipping- the adds to watch don't always work so to access premium comics or books or to support authors you can't rely on the adverts to tip, you have to pay which is a bummer. so I just stick to the free comics and novels. Despite that, still a 5- star app.

  • 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.

  • by Night Phlox

    I love Tapas and the app functions well, but it'd be a lot better if you could manage your comics and novels from the app instead of having to go on the desktop site to do it. Also some sections are broken. Like novels in the Staff Picks sections don't show up at all.

  • 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

    uh, 5 stars, because HELLO PEOPLE?! It's wayy too early in the morning, i love reading these beautiful comics, and I'm really inspired to make my own one day. So??? Yeet the Sheets and stars 5 out of 5 this gets from me!!! LONG STORY SHORT, I RECOMMEND THIS!!!

  • 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 Purple Pancakes

    I seriously love Tapas, it's my favorite platform for finding and reading webcomics, as well as supporting the authors. I have found so many amazing works I wouldn't have otherwise without it

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • by Chrissi Bee

    with the updates and notifications that my subscriptions are ready its really nice to have a variety of comics to read, and the wait to read option is really convenient with stories I'm not 100% invested in.

  • 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 Baledunce

    I really loved this app. This idea and I'm totally okay with paying with inks to read the comics. But I'm not willing to by inks with real money, it's not worth it. After the last few updates the getting free ink option got useless. To only thing I was able to do is watching videos and I did it a lot of times to get free inks. But now? Why doesn't it work anymore? Please fix this, I want to watch videos again to get inks and to continue reading this awesome comics.

  • 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 Aleksandra

    Great app. Amazing artists. Beautiful stories. Fascinating art. I do have complaints, but they're nothing -major-. Most of the comics cost, some of them more than the others, which is fine. They rely on our support. Some comics have an option to wait for a free chapter. Tapas has created a system for free currency. My issue is that although there are options to invite friends, play games, watch ads and fill surveys — i almost never have any available and if i do, it's two ads.

  • 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

  • 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 Marcus Sydney

    I like the app setup and the ink scheme to support the creators even bought some myself. I've just been wondering tho when I took the 'free ink' 'take survey' option, I answered what my family's annual income was but it exited out immediately afterwards and then I couldn't continue the survey, is this a bug? Thank you for taking the time to read this.

  • by Mighty Mela

    Truth be told, I loved this app before. Yes, before. Why? The comics and novels are a really good read, but the problem is, that I can't read them, because I can't get enough Ink. I can't watch videos for free ink, I watched two videos and then it didn't allow me to see any more. So it comes to this: If I want to read, I have to pay money. For a student who doesn't have money, there is no poinr for me to ise this app... That is really sad.

  • 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 Lora U

    my experience on tapas has been wonderful. It truly is an amazing app to read comics and novels that people create and I would still carry on using this app. One disadvantage of this app is that alot of comics or novels that you want to read are expensive when it comes to ink especially seeing as you have to pay with real money to get alot of ink. don't get me wrong this is a good app and you can get free ink by watching ads and completing quests. but alot of people like myself afford ink.

  • 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 Caroline

    I love this app, its easy to read comics and webtoons, the billing system is alright too, but it can be a bit difficult to understand which comics are free and which are not. The only thing I have a huge problem with is when I leave my phone for a second and it turns black, when I open the phone again, the screen is white and the comic is gone, I have to go to the frontpage again or close the app, before I can read the comic again, but still a big fan 👍

  • 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.

  • by Rainy Pegasi

    While I really like the current mobile layout, I'd really like for the ability to change pages by swiping to come back. I tend to read fast, and the arrow layout blocks part of the comic and feels slower and clunky. Maybe swiping could be made optional through account settings? Otherwise, this is a really nice app that gives the ability to support artists. I also love that there are now more genres to better find comics~

  • 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 James Purves

    Good range and good interface. I have had trouble loading episodes though, to the point where I feel that I have to close and reopen the app to get it to load. Maybe add a refresh button? Also please, please, please add a way to mark an episode as read. Whatever logic you are currently using does not always seem to work and it irritates me when I see an episode marked as unread when I know I have read it.

  • 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.

  • 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 Swiss B

    Love this app since there are so many great comics on here, but HATE the updated interface. So much so, I rarely use this because of it. Please revert the interface of at least our library back. The update makes it SO MUCH HARDER to navigate, especially if you have so many bookmarks + the previous interface was much more visually pleasing. It looks a lot like Webtoons now. Pre-update, it was super easy to navigate which was another thing I loved and a reason why I preferred Tapas over Webtoons

  • 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.

  • by Jayden Bradley

    I love this app. The stories are great worth reading. The only downside I've come across, is when I read this one story and it was out of order on somethings and repeated some stuff to. haven't accountered that with any others tho. but I really do love this app worth getting. They have a good selection of stories.

  • 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

  • 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.

  • 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.!

  • 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.

  • 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, 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 hope you guys can find a way to fix these issues so I can enjoy reading the comics again because a while ago these kinds of issues never happened.

  • 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!!

  • Help

    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.

  • Review

    by EternalBlah

    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^^

  • 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.

    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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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 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

  • 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

  • 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!

  • This would be the best app, but-

    by LightRvys

    Okay so i’ve recently downloaded this app and LOVE it. There is one problem though.... the coins. It takes forever for me to save up enough coins to unlock a chapter in my comic which costs 300!!! It takes a long time to get enough coins just for one single comic chapter. I have to watch a bunch of ads, and recently I did a big coin earner to end up getting no coins from it and it just going away over time. I had finished the tutorial for the game like it asked and never received the coins.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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

  • 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.

  • 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!!

  • Really good!

    by Ashlynn924

    Tapas gives content creators great opportunities, and if you only want to read, that’s easy too! Some stories require ink to read while others are free, you can either buy ink, or watch ads or play demo games or invite friends to join tapas to get free ink! I personally believe that it’s an amazing app that needs more love.

  • I just wanted to read

    by i ran out of named

    I love the comics and art in this app, but I can’t read it all without waiting a hour for me to finally have 289 ink from the adds only too have one unlocked, I understand that it’s better to savor the content but I am to young to pay for ink so I’d at least like if I can get two episodes instead of one. But that is my only complaint other than that I love this app I encourage others to download it ! ^-^

  • It’s Nice

    by 🌊~Seika~🌊

    I got Tapas solely for reading Snailed It! And I needed up checking out some other comics. I really like this app, but I have one problem: When I watch ads the video doesnt show up and doesn’t give me any coins. I can’t get any from the ads and I’m a little annoyed because I can’t read other chapters. I hope this gets fixed, other wise this is a five star app from my pov. ~💜

  • Love it but

    by Ex-Minecraft Lover

    There’s lots of glitches. Especially when I’m reading where if I’m scrolling it lags unless I scroll really fast which is just impossible to read then. Also, there’s end parts of chapters missing and it’s annoying missing out on info. It’s great and there’s lots of stories!

  • Problem Viewing Certain Comics

    by Lady_Layla

    I’m not sure why but when I try to read certain comics (like GamerCat and Genji Cat and The Pigeon Gazette) they just stay on a white screen indefinitely. I think it’s comics I was already subscribed to a while ago cause new subscriptions I can read fine. It’s been going on for a while, I had hoped one of the updates would eventually fix it. They work on the desktop fine, so it’s just the app.

  • Great, but one thing missing

    by Ais's mom

    Honestly I’m a huge webcomic weeb and this app is no exception. I love the comics people make. I just wish that I could actually find a comic that’s entirely free. I never know whether one is free or not unless I click on it, and if I liked the concept of the comic, then it’s a pretty big disappointment. I’d like to request for you guys to put some sort of symbol on the comics/novels that’s aren’t free so we readers know whether or not we’ll have to pay before we get our hopes up. It would be a lot easier to find free comics and novels too, as we could easily tell whether they are or aren’t due to the symbol on the comic/novel. I hope you take this into consideration. It would make things a lot easier. Thank you!

  • Almost Like We're Back to the Beginning.

    by YameMishina

    I love this app! I love being able to read some of my favorite webcomics. However I don't like this new thing (last few days) where I am getting notifications every 15 or so minutes that some comics I'm following have updated.

  • It's a really great app

    by Warg_rider1

    It's a really great app and it has some great stories on it but the downloads don't work like when I try to read the stuff I download the story doesn't load properly and keeps repeating the same images over and over again and that's annoying but other than that it's just a really great place for new artists.

  • Great app. Just one problem...

    by Klavendal

    Ever since the last update the app will not open. It opens and five seconds later it crashes. I don’t know what’s causing this problem but it started at the moment I updated. Hopefully this gets fixed soon I have no other problems with this app it’s really good just this is annoying...

  • Love it, but...

    by FoxWithGlasses

    It’s SUPER glitchy. The most recent update alone caused the app to crash 8 times in a row on not only my phone, but my iPad too, and only after the update occurred. Mostly it’s out of nowhere, or if I’ve been on it for longer than 7 minutes, but now it’s anytime I try to read a comic holding my phone/iPad sideways to see smaller comics better! Fixing this would improve my experience a LOT.

  • I love Tapas! New update has issues

    by riverrapids532

    I use this app a ton and I love that I can watch ads for coins (even when I have to watch a lot) but the new update is crashing my app every time I go to watch them. I even tried to delete and reinstall the app; didn't work. Hopefully this gets resolved soon because I have a few premium comics I follow that I can't see the updates of without buying them ☹️

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 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.

  • Ok app

    Tapas is a good app. It has many comics and is different from other apps. But sometimes it can be really glitchy. When I watch try to do demos to get ink it wont let me. It just says that I have done all 3 demos. Overall the apps good but had Some glitches.

    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.

  • 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!!

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Amazing stories

    by UseMyCodePls

    There are so many different webtoons or novels that you can enjoy. Tapas allows you to have quality content that’s affordable since the provide countless options such as playing games to earn coins, waiting to read an episode, or even reading some for free. I’m glad that i downloaded this app and if y’all decide to get it too pls use my code I8CA650R because i really wanna read some new stories!

  • 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.

    I really like the new update. I’m really excited to read the manga on it. I find it easy to find things that I like. I like how it looks more usable and HD.

  • This is cool

    by Reyking13

    I love this app I wold like to eventually do some work here too but from the story’s I seen so far I like the fact that it’s full of so many different things and worlds to explore I would definitely recommend it if you like comics

  • I L❤️VE it

    by HP Envy 4500

    I really love this all and for a reader like me this is awesome when it comes to free comics! I just have one simple request could you guys add a night or dark mode because the white hurts my eyes! Thank you! ~(^з^)-♡

  • Promo code

    by Tinycat_Kim

    I have a question. How do I use the promo code?

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Love It But Needs to Add More Availability’s on the App

    by Lucky, an Artist.

    I adore website and the app itself.But one thing bothers me tremendously of when it comes to uploading comics(if I’m wrong and the availability’s are already available, please do let me know). I wish to take it seriously about when it comes to the topic of Uploading Comics. Uploading comics for fun or not, this is a main idea for artists who wish to upload comics on the go or just on laptop, computer, etc. But when it comes to uploading comics on the go, this is not available unfortunately. I apologize if this is already added in the app, but it’s just something I haven’t been able to find yet. Uploading on the go could make a big impact (in my opinion) of how artists work. I, myself am not always available on computers all the time, but am available to mobile. So, if this is possible, I’d like to ask to add the possibility to upload on device. The comic pieces to put together could simply be from your photos. Once again, I deeply apologize if this is already available and for wasting your time in any way possible.

  • Community Comics

    by Sydeec1

    I love Tapas. It introduced me to the wonderful world of webcomics, and there’s almost nothing I love more than discovering a new one. BUT, I don’t like that the Community tab was replaced by a Premium tab in the new update. Sponsored/premium comics are already all over the website, so the Community tab was great so I could find all the free comics with ease. PLEASE bring back the Community tab!

  • Tapas Money Problems

    by MelVan13579

    I love Tapas but the one thing I dislike is that so many of the episodes cost money and lots of us don’t have any to spend money on the episodes.

  • good

    by Ihatethisgameitsucksrealbad

    it’s a great app, great comics, good to read on the go. i adore it. i recently did two offers, and waited two weeks for the ink to come in. it didn’t come in, so i emailed them and in just 24 hours they did it. very cooperative, great people. good service. great comics, artists are phenomenal, all around perfect. i love this app. it is good. good.

  • Special Offers of Ink

    by PhoenixSoul5

    I keep on doing the special offers for free ink, but can’t seem to get the rewards for some reason. I’ve checked again and again that I was correctly following the instructions and still, it’s been over four days that I’ve received the awards of free ink. I don’t know if it’s a bug or not, but please fix this issue.

  • 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.

  • Help

    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.

  • Amazing

    by non of ur bitnis

    Amazing stories and you always get the first chapter/episode free to see if your interested.

  • Please add forums

    by ExplodeAttack

    I cannot access forums for the life of me on the app. I can only access it on the desktop. I’d like if you were to add forums, to have push notifications for it if someone replied to you.

  • ❤️❤️❤️❤️

    I love this app there are so many great novels and comics to read and know I read all the time and I hate reading

  • I LOVE THIS APP

    by 🥰JAS🥰

    My favorite app EVER

  • Really good!

    by Ashlynn924

    Tapas gives content creators great opportunities, and if you only want to read, that’s easy too! Some stories require ink to read while others are free, you can either buy ink, or watch ads or play demo games or invite friends to join tapas to get free ink! I personally believe that it’s an amazing app that needs more love.

  • Interrupted playlist

    by Blazefrank

    For some reason my music playlist stops when I open the app on iOS 12.1.3. I like to listen to music when I read. And I can’t be the only one. I looked in thw options and the app doesn’t use background music or at least I didn’t hear any.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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”.

  • 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.

  • 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

  • Yap

    by 😫👌😂😂🔫

    This app is great 😩👏👏👏 I just hate how you need ink to read comics

  • Keeps crashing!

    by sihayasan

    The app used to work great! However, for the past couple of weeks the app will freeze then crash after playing one of the free ink ads. It is annoying for obvious reasons; moreso because I never get the ink even though I watch the entire ad.

  • 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.

  • Three stars cus of ink

    by Hargered

    The only reason I gave it three stars was because I don’t like how you will be reading something really good then it like this chapters locked and I’m just like Bish I don’t go money to pay for ink and I have better thing to do with time then watch ads for more ink
