  • Amazing. Just, amazing. Apr 25, 2020

    By Jbird1013
    I’ve had this app for over two years now, and I haven’t thought to write a review until now. It has so many amazing books, some have been published as actual books, some just written for fun. You can completely enjoy it with some short adds or you can pay for premium and get no adds and a few different features. I’ve had it for so long, and sadly can’t do premium, even though it is pretty inexpensive; but it’s still an amazing experience. There are also some stories that you have to use coins for, and you can buy coins or get three a day by watching videos, and each chapter is three coins. There are so many more books that are completely free though, so paying isn’t required at all. I also love having the comments on each paragraph of the story and being able to share my thoughts and read others opinions on the books. The one and only complaint that I have is that there isn’t a feature to like a comment on a book. I’ve seen a few people who have the same problem, we don’t want to comment on something, we just want to let them know that their comment made us laugh. It’s a very small complaint though, and it doesn’t affect the experience on Wattpad. All in all, this app is great for exploring books, and writing as well. It’s very easy write and publish chapters and books on the app. It’s perfect for writers who just want to have some fun or who want to explore an interest in writing. Would 100% recommend this to all book lovers and writers.

    Well... I used to like this app but now it' a little horrible. There are bugs. My drafts duplicate or disappear. Also, the comments duplicate too or never post it. And it just the app. In web version I need to refresh the page in order to complete the reading because never appear the whole text. Also, can you put again the Quotation's tool? I miss so much make my favourite phrases as quotation

  • Love this app, but... Dec 7, 2019

    By Ptwt lover
    This is an awesome app to read stories and fanfics, but the one thing at the moment that I don’t like is the new limit to read offline without premium. I liked how before you could read any story offline, but you couldn’t update the new chapter, but it’s better then having a limite on stories to read and sometimes get to read the story if they did update a new chapter without internet. I would like it if wattpad were to take away the limitation on offline stories, for its better that way and I can read more when I’m on a business trip or on an airplane I can read lots of stories without limitations. I have had this app for maybe 2 years and I never had a complaint, but with the limited offline stories it had caused me some troubles, also once I was in a business trip and I went to read and there was no internet connection or anything. But I had my offline books and one of them updated, though the thing was I couldn’t read it and it told me I have to have an internet connection to upload the new chapter, which irritated me cause this was supposed to be an offline story that I can read without anything and after that I couldn’t read until 2 hours later once I got internet. In a couple of day I will be traveling and some parts of the place that I’m going does not have internet connection, but I want to still be able to read, but I can’t afford premium so I’m just asking please get rid of the limited offline books they’re troublesome.

    alright, i’ve had this app since 2013 and let me start this review by saying it’s definitely not the same as the old version. the changes aren’t too bad, once you get used to the adds that pop up every so often when you’re reading a story. they can get annoying and more consistent the longer you read, but again, you get used to them after a while. if not, just pay for premium (i actually wouldn’t recommend getting premium unless you’re REALLY bothered by the adds). overall this app is great. if you want to write a story, it’s not hard trying to figure out what specific buttons you’ve got to press in order to pick your story’s cover, select tags, add a new chapter and so on. i do have to warn you though, the app is known to crash when you’re in the middle of writing a chapter and deleting all of that progress you made, so be careful with that. getting your story views isn’t that difficult either, unless you’re a new author but even then your story will eventually get viewers. wattpad’s also a great app to make friends and find mutuals too. over the years i’ve met a lot of nice people, and gotten myself more than a lot of followers. you don’t need followers though, you can simply use wattpad to read, find friends, or do your own thing. it doesn’t matter if you’re trying to find a story of a specific fandom/an original story, wattpad’s perfect to pass time. so yes, i recommend it, regardless of the few problems it has occasionally.

    I really love Wattpad and enjoy the original books there. But my issue is now with the paid books. 🌷 I tried to earn coins by watching ads but each time I try, it'll say there are no ads to be seen. I also tried the premium but it's not available in my country. I really hope these issues could be sorted out.😓😓 And, I also love the idea of 2 offline books. It has actually helped me to complete the books one at a time.😄😄 Love you Wattpad 🥰😍😍😘🥺

    wow. just WOW, wattpad. You really are amaze me with ur "spending our readers money" games. Latest update you announce that FINALLY u fix the offline stories prob, so that we can save up to 20-25 stories for free offline. SUDDENLY, i open my app this evening, when everything was fine till dis afternoon, i only have 2 stories offline. I check it again, i try to add more, i cant :) Because suddenly, they made it only up to 2 stories offline (again). Youre just so AMAZING wattpad. Shame on you.

    I'm pretty disappointed with Wattpad rn. The entire system has changed from 2018 and on top of that my account was deactivated and I'm unable to get back into it which is total BS. There's way too many ads, it's buggy, and they're shoving premium down user's throats. Can't they do better?

    Honestly, navigating through genres is more difficult than it should be. You can look up "horror" or "thriller" and find nothing but erotic fanfiction—which is exactly what I'm not looking for. I'd like to see original works, ones that I don't have to pay for. The ads are often overbearing to the point where I'm turned off of reading. The two book limit for offline reading is trash. Overall writing is no longer user friendly. Wouldn't recommend at this point.

  • Too Many Ads Jul 19, 2018

    By 💁Daija💁✌️💖
    Okay, don’t get me wrong, I understand that to keep Wattpad free for the people who don’t have the money to become a premium member there’s gonna be ads, but the ads that pop up in the middle of every other chapter is VERY annoying. I have been using Wattpad for about 6 years now, it’s by far one of my favorite apps (well it used to be but i’ll get to that in a second): it’s a platform that allows me and others to express our creativity and love for writing and holds some pretty interesting reads that sometimes seem like I should be paying for them... Though at this point, I guess I am with all these ads they throw in my face any chance they get. I was surprised – to say the least – when I opened the app after an update awhile back and seen an ad on the homepage. I was fine with it, of course, because it’s not like it hindered my reading experience, but now the ads have hindered my reading experience. I literally can’t go two chapters without a freaking ad popping up and making me wait 5 seconds until I can move on to the next chapter. It’s ridiculous. Wattpad has obviously fell into the same cycle as every other app that started off ad free. Now they overdo them because all they care about is the money. I still enjoy the app, I just wish they would do something about the ads in the middle of every other chapter, at least make them few and far between. Otherwise, it’s an extremely good app that i’ve enjoyed for many years.

    The same problem is still occuring. Often times, the stories are going back to the old update, the 2 only books than the new update. I'm getting irritated by this as I've already added # of books offline and it just gets thrown out because it keeps receding back to the old update. Can you fix this? This is the 3rd time it has happened. I've uninstalled it and installed it but it still doesn't work. Only works @ odd times and by a miracle.

  • I’m in love with Wattpad but there is a problem... Jan 26, 2020

    By adcgscvjhb
    I love Wattpad so, so, so much and am even an author of a couple of books. I’ve been on this app for like four years now and it has made my life so much better and enjoyable. I love how in the library you can have as much books as you want and being able to comment on stories and to message authors and all the other stuff. Each update of Wattpad was better than be next. I love the most recent update because it makes everything look so organized but.... I have a concern. You see, before this update, I was able to access any book easily offline as long as it was in my library. But now, the new update only allows to have two books offline and it seems sort of unfair to me. I can still read but I don’t feel that much joy as I used to feel. To have more offline books, you have to have the premium plan and sadly, I cannot afford that as I already have to much things to take care up. With this review, I plead that you try to fix Wattpad as to get rid of only having two boos offline without premium to change so that Wattpad users are able to read any book on their library offline and to be able to see their updates. This is the concern I have to address. I hope someone sees this and is able to take my concern into consideration and fix Wattpad. For feedback from others, this pretty much is similar to what most of the Wattpad users that I know said when I asked them.

  • One teensy problem. Nov 25, 2019

    By steph 🥳
    Off the bat, the app is amazing. I’ve had it for three years. Over the years, I’ve read amazing books and some that weren’t so amazing. I met some amazing authors and a few friends I didn’t know I would meet. It was an online library and hang out that I never knew I actually needed. My friends and I have all collaborated on stories or written each other nice messages on our message board. We all got to answer and write them, except me. I since then deleted the app and haven’t re-downloaded it until a few months back to see if I would get the email to verify my account and allow me to post messages or reply to messages on my board. Nothing. I tried changing my email to see if it was wrong or going to the help page the creators so kindly offered. I checked everything, did everything the help said. Still nothing. This has been going on for two months. TWO MONTHS and still nothing. I don’t understand if it’s just me or if others have experienced this. It’s getting very annoying to the point where I might cry of frustration because of how infuriating this gets. I am sick and tired of waiting and trying and repeating a whole cycle I shouldn’t have to repeat if it was that simple to fix a posible bug. Again, I don’t know if others experienced this or if it’s just me but I’m exhausted from waiting around almost an hour to see if the email got sent or not. Please fix this or at least read this review and say something to make me feel better.

    I've said before that I've experienced issues with wattpad, but thankfully they aren't as bad as it was. However, whenever I try to exit out of a chapter that I finished editing, it sends me into this loop, constantly telling me there were issues with saving and I have to pick which revision I want. I do that, then it still tells me the same thing over again. This problem sometimes occurs, but it's honestly kinda annoying to put up with it. But overall, it's still a great app

  • Love it! Only one problem Dec 29, 2020

    By Mac and cheese girl🙃🙃
    I’ve had this app coming up two years, and it has definitely grown my love for reading. This is the first app I open when I wake up and the last one I open before I go to bed. I’ve probably read over 100 books, and I have over 12 in my library. Wattpad is probably my favorite app I have on my phone. However, I do find one thing troubling. As most people who have the app are aware of, if you do not save a book to your library, once you exit it out of it it is most likely lost forever. Now, I know this is probably not a big problem for people who know the title and other things about the book, but for people who sometimes choose a book just based on the description and do not look at the title (me), this poses an issue sometimes. I was reading a wonderful book a couple days ago, and I had gotten about 30 chapters in. I guess I had gotten so absorbed in the story that I had forgotten to save it to my library. Well, my family and I had traveled into the country, so we had no internet. When I opened up the app, a notification popped up that i needed WiFi to continue reading. I pressed dismiss. Long story short, it exited out of the book, and I can’t find it. I think it would be really helpful to have an option to look at a recently opened or recently looked at page where books that you had previously read but hadn’t been saved could be seen. This would be EXTREMELY helpful! Other than that, LOVE the app!

    So far, the app has been amazing. I've been able to write with almost no problems. Until now. Sometimes when I go to exit a chapter after editing it, it does this thing where I end up in a loop. It tells me there was a problem with saving, asks me to pick a draft to save, I pick a draft, end up back in the chapter, and when I go to leave again it does the same thing. And I've put up with this for a while. But now it's doing this thing where it adds weird spaces in between paragraphs.

    I love the stories on here, I wish there were some sort of reviews thing were you can type out what you thought of the story. Also, the ads honestly don't even bother me that much although there are alot, they're spaced out between each chapters so I'm fine but one thing that really bugs me is that it always asks me to buy premium and I say not now or click the X but it still shows it to me, again and again, honestly more annoying than the ads but otherwise I LOVE IT! It helps me relieve stress.

  • Wattpad: Why Change is Needed Apr 22, 2019

    By Delakat
    Wattpad has been on every handheld device I’ve owned since I created an account five years ago. I can honestly say that this app was my favorite app hands down until recently. Yes, I still love and use Wattpad but I don’t spend nearly as much time reading on there as I used to. This is due to the ads and the update with premium accounts. I don’t mind ads at all as that is how apps are kept free but it seems like I get an ad after every single chapter and I’m constantly asked to go premium. With the change of the logo recently as well, I feel Wattpad is in a different place than it was when I joined 5 years ago but not in a good way. We need to move forward but not so much so that it becomes an entirely different thing. There have always been ads and I don’t expect ads to be wiped out completely but it is ridiculous how often they pop up, I also find it quite obnoxious that I am asked to go premium every single time I open the app. It is safe to say that Wattpad has become more of a money making operation than one that values its writers and readers. I don’t think it is much to ask to reduce the amount of ads a little bit and try to make the app about the people using it again. I’m still going to use this app but I have resorted to other FanFiction websites and apps as it is not nearly as enjoyable as it used to be. I do hope you can take both our opinions into consideration more directly. Thank you.

  • No more offline readings, why?!?!?!? Sep 25, 2019

    By Arlo's Customer
    I have been reading in and fan of Wattpad for 4-5 years now and I have seen them go through major changes, some changes are fine with me but the current change is just upsetting. The moment I woke up in the morning and I went to check on Wattpad for updates in my library, but only to see that now we all have to pay to read offline which was shocking and terrifying to me. I feel like I won’t be able to be able to read anymore interesting stories written or shared by others for the sake of their passion or entertainment (especially while I am going to school using underground transportation). I feel like not being able to read some of our books offline is just a nightmare!!! I understand why Wattpad did the coin system and the ads, but getting rid of the offline reading is just a nightmare! Although, I also read when I have Wi-Fi at home and school and there would be ads which I don’t mind, but now when I am offline I won’t be able to access to my favorites while traveling underground (literally no service) then what? Maybe I should quit Wattpad for a long while and just focus on school which is getting more harder and stressful. Mind you, Wattpad is my source of stress reliever and happy times (plus it was my favorite reading app out of all the others I have experienced with), but now I will just steer clear from Wattpad. Who knows? I might just be back soon or later?

  • great, except... Oct 13, 2018

    By q u e e n :)
    I always look forward to going to wattpad every day to read and write. I currently have a book published and another one in the works. This app is great, except for one thing. I don’t know if it is a glitch or if it is supposed to happen, but everyone’s message board posts blow up my notifications. At first I didn’t mind it, thinking it was just a glitch and in the next few days it would be fixed and everything would go back to normal. But now, I think it’s been doing this for maybe a month (I actually don’t really know). All the message board notifications have been preventing me from seeing comments and votes on my actual story and updates from my favorite stories. This really bothers me. I put a new story out about three weeks ago, and it has a very low number of votes and comments compared to my other story. I honestly don’t know if it is all the message board notifications or if everybody is less active because school has started again. Even I have ignored all of my notifications some days because I didn’t want to go through the thousands of notifications just from people posting on their own message boards. So I’m wondering if other people are doing the same as me and ignoring it overall, leading them to not reading and commenting as they used to... I’m definitely not saying I’m thirsty for votes, but this even prevents me from reading. Thank you for reading, I hope it made sense...!

  • Lots of improvement needed Mar 27, 2020

    By #CornyJokes4U
    There are many things I love about this app, but I feel like there are so many things that could and should be better. For instance, the search filters. On websites like A03, you can search for particular genres, word counts, characters, and many more. The search filters feel incomplete. All wattpad has is the amount of chapters (which can be misleading because many people write short stories with many chapters but not a lot of words), when it was updated, and if it’s complete or not. It’s hard to find a particular type of story if you can’t search for things like word count. Another thing is the constant requests to buy premium. I had wattpad before they turned into a greedy money-making company, and it was so much better than the current version. There used to not be constant pop-ups to spend a ridiculous amount of money to go ad free and read a few paid stories. On top of that, they reduced the amount of stories you can read offline. If you had a book loaded previously, you could read it offline and you could do this for many books. Then they reduced that amount to three, then to two. I just wish they didn’t shove the premium ads in your face so much. The search feature is what really needs improvement, though. I want to be able to find stories of a particular type and cannot do that at the moment because of the insufficient searching filters.

  • The update Feb 6, 2019

    By JassHassleFree
    Hello I understand that people writing books are getting them published through your company and it’s important to keep funds coming in, but what about the people (like me) who have been reading on watt pad for years now? We have to pay to buy coins now to read stories that used to be free? I thought that the point of it being free is us reading it, loving it, and sharing for other people to discover it? I thought that was the point of this app, when we rate the stories they put into a list of top 50 or so and the best ones can be discovered online by publishers. I’ve been using this app since I was twelve, I am now 18 years old and I’ve been searching for another app to read stories like this but I can’t find any. I believe you’re losing more customers by making the free subscribers pay for reading, it shouldn’t be a thing for free or premium subscribers to pay to read. These aren’t stories made by well known authors these are stories of aspiring authors who need an audience to love their books, review them, and get them out there to the world. I have decided to move on from Wattpad because I can’t afford to pay for it, your customers are more than likely mostly children and young adults who wouldn’t even think about paying to read books when there are other apps that are less desirable but FREE to read and review. I love Wattpad and I hate that this has happened and that’s why I gave a low rating.

  • Wattpad is Just Getting Worse and Worse May 9, 2019

    By Shisshsjjsdhgek
    When I first joined Wattpad about 3 to 4 years ago, it was an interesting community to say the least. A small portion of the books that have been written were extraordinary, while most others have been... somewhat questionable. Even with the rather odd books in the mix, the community itself and the app was overall an enjoyable place to be sometimes. All the bonds and friendships that have been forged on Wattpad are ones I cannot forget, nor would I have had the opportunity to gain such friends without Wattpad. However, as time has past, Wattpad has become worse as a whole. It’s like as if the Wattpad community of the past was a book, and the future of Wattpad was a small flame, engulfing it entirely. The books aren’t the issue for me, as I do find it laughable and sometimes enjoyable to see what people could manage to come up with. The real issue for me, is the administration. One by one, I have seen one too many accounts fall and terminated with to unclear reasoning and unjustified manners. One too many times have I seen accounts that had years worth of work put into it vanish in an instant, only for them to make a new account explaining that Wattpad had terminated their account with false pretenses, not explaining the reasoning for their doing. It’s just isn’t right, deleting all these accounts, some of which had books that the authors clearly put their time, heart, and soul into.

    wow. just WOW, wattpad. You really are amaze me with ur "spending our readers money" games. Latest update you announce that FINALLY u fix the offline stories prob, so that we can save up to 20-25 stories for free offline. SUDDENLY, i open my app this evening, when everything was fine till dis afternoon, i only have 2 stories offline. I check it again, i try to add more, i cant :) Because suddenly, they made it only up to 2 stories offline (again). Youre just so AMAZING wattpad. Shame on you.

    I'm pretty disappointed with Wattpad rn. The entire system has changed from 2018 and on top of that my account was deactivated and I'm unable to get back into it which is total BS. There's way too many ads, it's buggy, and they're shoving premium down user's throats. Can't they do better?

    The same problem is still occuring. Often times, the stories are going back to the old update, the 2 only books than the new update. I'm getting irritated by this as I've already added # of books offline and it just gets thrown out because it keeps receding back to the old update. Can you fix this? This is the 3rd time it has happened. I've uninstalled it and installed it but it still doesn't work. Only works @ odd times and by a miracle.

  • Seriously? MAKE SURE TO READ!!!! Dec 27, 2018

    By Seriously? Must be a joke.
    I’ve been using wattpad for a while now. Almost five years and I’ve enjoyed every minute of it. It’s kept me from going to bed when I can’t seem to put down my phone because a book is so good. It’s kept my attention pulled away from schoolwork- which could be a bad thing but also maybe a good thing? Anyways needless to say the reason I’m giving the app such a low rating is because I don’t believe in the app anymore. Sure the app is full of really great authors/ readers who are all there for the same reason. But I feel like you could do so much better elsewhere. Wattpad used to be a FREE community for authors to publish their stories for the readers to devote their time to, whereas now wattpad feels more like an elite community for people who want to pay for their stories. Come on now. You can’t expect half of the world to join wattpad premium or pay for some ridiculous coins to keep reading. I understand paying the hardworking authors on wattpad, however it’s a two way street. You either keep the writers happy and the readers upset or vice versa. I feel as though some more thought should go into these new versions of wattpad instead of keeping just one side of the street happy. Though for now, I’m telling you that it would be a better idea to keep moving. Sorry wattpad but you’ve made a lot of people unhappy with this new system. Until some compromise has been reached I feel like the original wattpad(ers) will loose interest in your app. :(

  • You have to stop Sep 29, 2019

    By 1616.a55
    I’ve been in Wattpad since a long time by now, five years more specifically, and I have to say I’ve never been so upset with you as I am now. This was supposed to be a platform where people can come and enjoy a whole world full of different and diversified stories. And it was, until they started to worry more for the money than for the readers and users. At first I was really surprised, and kinda upset with the new updates, but I told myself that it was ok, that change was good, but this is too much! First where the ads between chapters— I must admit this was one of the things that got me the angriest—, then was this thing about “subscriptions” in which you have to pay to gain certain privileges, and now, now you can’t even read a story unless you have an internet connection. What is wrong with you! Did y’all lost your minds? You’re making people have to waist money for offline stories. Why?! It’s shameful. Where does all those things about “the best offline and online free reading platform ever” are at? This is not what y’all said and promise us at the beginning. I get it, and I know that change is good, and that y’all need to gain money cause it’s something you’re putting your effort and time at. But, at what cost? A lot of people have been leaving Wattpad because of this things, and I still don’t know, but maybe I’m gonna be next. This changes you’re making, not all of them are for the good.
