I love having wattpad its an amazing source for all my books...but its really getting on my nerves as of recently. They have now put adds at the bottom of each book I read and its very distracting. I can't focus on what I'm reading and it makes me really upset...I really hope they fix it :(
That One Kid We All Know

I used to read on wattpad loads as a kid but they've changed it so much. I went back to it recently and got stuck into this really good book, I was 40 chapters into the 60 chapter story and wattpad deleted it. They didn't notify the readers it had been deleted. The author had to notify us through the discussion boards. It's a gay story and they deleted it at the start of pride month with no explanation. If they didn't want it on their platform they could at least warn the readers to make copies

I was loyal user for 7 years. I singlehandedly witnessed the downfall of this app. Although it does have better features now than it did in the past, everything got more irritating with the overwhelming amount of ads. I could deal with ads in between chapters, but my final straw was when they had the gall to put ads at the bottom of the chapters being read. I understand it is a free service, but just because I'm not paying doesn't mean you can downgrade my experience so carelessly.

Recently there are to many ads. There is one after each part and it's a feat to click the x to remove the ad.🤦Besides the problem with the ads it's a very good app. Would recommend just have a lot of patience for the ads.

It's a really good app, but it would be more convenient to use if there was an option/mark for books "read already" because many a times the writer changes the book cover and i can't recognise which ones I've read and which ones are new.

Okay, I mean I've longing to find this book for a really long time: The Classix The thing is: I don't really understand and am confused by what the writer is talking about, some chapters are repeated while others are just random pieces of the story put together... I really really hope we don't have to pay money to read some of the books though..

It is good. But some of the stories I want to continue reading or got an update on does not open it says something went wrong with wattpad try again later. 😭 I was introduced to this app used it for about 3 years give or take.

At first, my Wattpad was also not working and I faced the same issue that everyone else was facing. However, I downloaded a VPN and it's working perfectly fine now. Although now, I can keep two books in my offline list

I love the app but the most recent update made the app kinda slow especially for me who doesn't have the best wifi. And all I wanna do is write my stories but when I go it it I have to wait FOREVER for it to load and when I click the story it doesn't even wanna load sometimes. Idk why that feature was necessary because it never did that until I updated it.

I've had wattpad for years now and I haven't had any problems until recently.. There's literal adds on the bottom of each page of a story I read, and it does not go away, even after I try to click it away— It's really distracting and I can't even focus on what I'm reading when there's a super bright add with multiple colors, etc, I have always been easily distracted through out my entire life and it slightly upsets me due to the fact that I can't enjoy using one of my favorite apps anymore. 🤦

Can you please add the ability to bookmark, bc I've lost my place multiple times when I'm reading. I also pay the subscription to read offline and it's the same situation but worse bc if I'm reading something when my phone is on airplane mode and then I turn off airplane mode then the book jumps back to last chapter I was on when I had my data on. It's really annoying.

Great app, but some changes can be made? 1) Make a history page for us. So that if we humans forget to save or the name of the book then we can find it with ease. 2) Let us decide what notifications we want to see or get. 3)On computer if we open our library and scroll and click of "details " of a specific story then open the description of the story in the new tab not the cover page . It's hella annoying what if we want to open many stories? But we can't because its opens one story at a time

I love reading and writing on Wattpad. I have been using it for years. The only problem is: the ads. I don't even mind that there's so many. Its just the ones promoting alcohol don't close. You have to literally leave and restart the app to read or write again. And it's recently the only one that has been playing. It's also annoying how when I don't have data and I'm reading books in my Library it doesn't really bookmark my page or chapter. But other than that it's cool.

Okay this happened recently, but I still need to voice my concerns on this: Today I found out that a very popular book was taken down by Wattpad. The author and it's readers where extremely upset and some of us other authors are concerned that our books will get taken down for no good reason, or no reason at all. Please explain this or, if it's a bug or accident, fix it. I still love the app. I've had it for two years now, and love it more than ANY other reading app in the world. Pls fix it 😭❤️

I've had this app for a few years now and I love every but of it but now ads appear randomly and even at the bottom of the page, it is annoying and I'm not sure what's wrong but I definitely could take and ad or two in the past but this is just ridiculous.

I'd definently give this app a five but i didnt because there is one flaw. So in my books i like to add youtube lyric videos so they have music to listen to when theyre reading right? But for some reason after i publish it, after a while the video vanishes and it is very annoying but beside that, this app is amazing. I highly recommend it :) Edit: Okay another flaw ive found. Or, more of a question. Could you perhaps make a dark mode that works while your writing it?

It's a great app just get rid of the add bar at the bottom like before. There are already enough adds its completely unnecessary. PLEASE fix this because it just gets in the way. Not everyone has the money to spend for the premium to get rid of this.

This a good app but just recently, I took a break from the app and when I came back all of the chapters I had written were out of order so I went to spend hours putting them back in their place just to leave it for a few hours and come back to it once again scrambled. 66% of the time I spend on this app is writing I don't feel like having to replace a chapter every time I leave the app. My rating would be 5 stars if you fix this problem.

So I've had this app for awhile i think it's a great way to read and i honestly don't mind adds between chapters, but the new update including adds at the bottom of books really downgrades the quality of the app. I find it distracting (I'm sure many others do too.) when your reading and there is a flashy add at the bottom of the page. Please fix this by changing it back to just adds at the end of a chapter.

I honestly don't know why, but something really disappointing has been happening lately. Whenever I click on to stories I'm usually about to read, most of the pictures won't load no matter what I attempt! They are simply the word Wattpad in bold, grey letters with a white bg. And I'm not to sure if they're pictures that have been taken down; but if not, I would please like this fixed 🙏🙏🙏🙏

The app been acting very good lately. Expect for one thing. For some reason it won't allow me to look at the pictures that the person posted for show. And the pictures are harmless as well they are just characters that people made. And I know this because Wattpad will only block pictures that are bad. So yeah. I don't know what is going on. This is also happening to my own pictures as well. Can you fix this please?

I like this apps but it kind of annoying whenever i scroll for the next chapter, the adds always show up. Also when i find a story that maybe got my interest,it was from different language so i can't read it. So i hope that was some kind of translation in it.

I'm gonna be honest here. Its a great app, it really is, I love the stories. But theres a massive problem. I'm trying to update my story but Wattpad keeps crashing. I've done EVERYTHING to make it stop crashing. Now I can be on the editing draft a little longer but it keeps crashing. That means that there's a problem with the app. And there's like an ad every 10 or so chapters.. To skip to other chapters It's pretty complicated, but I'm sure I'll get use to it.

I dont know what is happening but i can't see the pictures that are attach in the stories that i've been reading. All it says is "Wattpad" Logo then nothing else. It's hard to read! Please fix it! Since some author put some screenshots of either drafts from the story and is connected which make it hard for us reader to understand. Hoping that it would be fixed

It's a good app and I've had it for years but I do have a complaint, recently pictures on people books have been glitching and making it so people can no longer see the picture and this is really bothersome especially for artists like me who have lost old artwork and count on Wattpad to be able to see it again, please fix this bug :/

Alright, listen to me. I love this app, I really do. I read lots of amazing stories, this isnt about the premium either. I never minded the ads that popped up every few chapters of a story but you guys recently added an ad bar at the bottom. I don't understand the point in that. If you guys are forcing us to try and pay for premium by doing that than your stupid. Not a whole lot of people can afford to pay that every month. I hate that the ad bar was added at the bottom of every chapter I read

The app keeps on crashing. Whenever I open it, it blinks black and white and then exits the app. I've tried uninstalling and re-installing many times. But the problem continues. Please look into it. I'll change my review once it's been taken care of.

There seems to be a problem with the images in stories disappearing, and it's frustrating because people worked so hard to make the pictures. Also, PLEASE remove the ad bar at the bottom in stories. The ad bar is so distracting, so please remove it.

heyo! Just wanna say that i luv this app a lot, it's full of interesting stuff to read (like literally) but i only have 1 problem. It haves something to do with the images/pictures in some stuff that i read, I can't really view the pictures, like it only shows a white image that it haves "WATTPAD" written on it. I assumed it was my wifi but there's actually nothing wrong with my wifi even if i just restarted it for the 5th time now. (I kinda need help on it). Anyways tysm Wattpad 4everything<333

There's some issues with Wattpad. The photo won't loaded whenever I read the book. All I see is 'WATTPAD' written over it. It's so frustrating and I wish for it to be fixed. And I've already cleared the app data and uninstalled it and it doesn't work. Fix it please.

It was alright when you guys decided to change the number of offline novels from unlimited to 27, but to allow us only 2 unless we pay for the premium version is really disgusting!! I understand you need to make money out of this but you've gone way too far with this!

Not bad but please fix the app. I put some pictures on my story and it suddenly disappeared as I can't recover it back. Please fix it asap so I can get the picture on my story back. It takes hours for me to replace the lost pic with another and I'm so tired.

I have been on Wattpad since at least 2014 and have absolutely loved it. With the new modifications, I can stand all of the pop up adds every few chapters, but what has been really bugging me is when I read a chapter it repeats the last few paragraphs on the last page. It's been doing this for a couple of months now, and other than this glitch I've absolutely adored this app for years. The adds on top of the glitch, however, has made it very displeasing.

Tge app is great and I love all the stories in it and able to write stories but there is one issue I have about it and almost everyone noticed. Everytime I pasted a picture on one of my stories, I mean on it not just the background that above the title. When it's publish, the picture doesn't appear at all, just tye watermark. Please fix this problem

I've been using Wattpad for 3 years now and I was enjoying but lately there have been some issues with the app. 1. Adds. Not only do we get adds after most chapters(which I fined a little annoy but ok) now we have them at the bottom of the page too. 2. Bio. I don't know if it's just me, but I've been having a problem with my bio. I can't move a space forward or multiple spaces to the right and it just makes everything look stupid. 4. Graphics. Please bring back graphics.

I've been using Wattpad since 2020, and I admit that this app is really good. It's just lagging sometimes but it's okay. And please add the daily coins we can earn by watching ads. To broke readers like me, please consider that. And also, add a thing that we can save our favorite lines and quotes, add more beautiful fonts and page colors for reading. Thank you.

I for one absolutely love Wattpad, I've been on it before premium was even an idea. And I've never minded watching adds, but now they are constant and it's impossible to read. Not only that, I've recently started writing but after publishing I notice my images or gifs that were added suddenly aren't there and I need to add them a few times before they finally stay. People can't find my story while searching. And my offline story limit says it's full even if I have 19 stories out of 25.

I like wattpad and have been using this app for quite sometime now, it's easy to use and great for all readers and writers. However recently I find that when adding new content to my stories the app deletes said content and replaces it with chapters from other stories at times and this can really he annoying.

This is the best app for reading.... I never used any other than this .... everything is good .... Just a open system I wish to be present in it ....that upload of videos ... And songs too .... As when we wrote any chapter songs in background will be very amazing... as you can feel the emotion better with songs than words .... Music speaks more than the words do ... It's humble request please ....

good app ive been using it a very long time, but the only problem is hiw the images inly show a blank white backgroudnd with "WATTPAD" across it. What is the reason that you ppl have to delete these pictures that are in peoplew books. Ive read someones book before and the puctures was there but when i came back to check on it, the oictures were blank with wattpad across it. quit deleting peoples pictures it just makes the author and the dans mad and annoyed. That pretty much all i have 2 say ✌🏿

For the creator/programmer This is an amazing app worthy of 5 stars even 6 if I could give it but the new update has ruined the reading experience and writer's way of helping you imagine a scenario. Me AND a friend have the same problem, so it's not just me that this error is happening to. All tipes of media, if it is a PICTURE, a VIDEO,a VIDEO LINK TO YOUTUBE or a small GIF Video, it all gets claimed by Wattpad for no reason, please fix this, a lot of stories are ruined without their visual aid

I have been using this app for sometime now and loved it entell I updated it just recently now all the pictures in the books will not show up and the ads are so repetitive and every chapter gosh when I first go the app it only gave me ads maybe ever 5 to 6 chapter now the more books I read the not adds show up in the books but it is still a good app just has some problems

The ads are becoming too much. You can get stuck in an ad loop when quickly scrolling back to the previous page when you missed something. I often times cannot see pictures when they pop up in stories. Even with the reset options, nothing changes. Be better.

Too many ads! I have to cancel the same ad three times before I can be allowed to read the next chapter! First ad is nearly 30 seconds long the next is 15 and lastly a pic of the same damn ad that activates the cancel button after 5 seconds. I don't want to click on this ad and you're just wasting my time and making my user experience worse!

It's an amazing app it really gives me a wonderful time too right now a lot of ideas that I have for books and it also gives me enough space and for it to have unlimited words space is actually pretty amazing. I can run up to 3,000 without it's telling me to take away a few words like other apps, what's had has always been a good app to me ever since and I appreciate the owner who made this wonderful app. Keep up the good work!

The new upgrade has caused crashes. I'll be reading a story and the app would exit the book and state you have to be online. I have no problems with my internet signal & unlimited wifi through my phone. This didn't happen until the upgrade. Please fix

add a text highlighter, i'm pretty sure u know how it works on books. allow us to add a description on our reading lists. create a new reading theme. add review sections. shut up with the repetitive notifs of the same news. readers club (where we can see our status on the feed), fix the DAMN notes (spacings sucks), i'm here for years but i can see that y'all were developing for the sake of money. what would be the readers' entertainment next to books in this app? truly. i hope you sees this.

Adds showing up while I'm reading sucks it's distracting and I can't even remove it. Adds between chapters are fine as long as it ain't every chapter. I hope the add at the bottom when reading gets removed cause it's stupid. Pictures in books aren't working anymore

I personally think it's amazing because I can read even when I don't have a book or I finished the book. I can write story and publish them. Before that I wrote short story's for my teacher and she loved them and I think it deserves these five stars. Even though I sometimes have problems because of glitches but I don't mind these. I just close and open the app and everything is alright again.

Honestly I used to love this app but now it's just crazy how much ads we get. I didn't care if we had to get 2 ads per chapter but every update wattpad has they increase the ads. Especially now apparently theirs in ad in the middle of you reading a chapter which appears on the bottom screen. As a reader I truly hate that because it's so distracting and makes me really disappointed when reading, makes me want to uninstall.

The app is alright but the constant ads are annoying especially when reading the fanfictions on wattpad and plus your stuck in a loophole of ads when going through chapters and chapters all the time and it gets stuck too the ads R absolutely annoying and aggravating and very frustrating you can't even get passed or around them at all without a single ad in your in screen on your phone the ads are definitely annoying and aggravating you can't even get around them without one on loop

Used Wattpad since I first got a phone, which is probably for 7 years or so. Little problems have pop and been solved later so I am overall happy about it. There is just one problem. Recently, in the middle of me reading, I am being sent back to chapter 1. Regardless of whether I read to chapter 10 or 20, as long as I read there is a high chance I will be sent back to the first chapter. Please fix it. I am constantly loosing my place because of this.

I really like Wattpad, so it sucks to write this but there are just to many ads. Like, I get it. They want to make money, and I understand putting ads every few chapters. But now, there is literally ads while you read. Like that is just to much.

I liked Wattpad. I LOVED Wattpad, and used to use it every day. But now the app has gone downhill. They took away the good things like the newsfeed, the activity page, and it used to be a fun app overall to read and make books. Nowadays, it's just money, money, money. There are ads after every single chapter. Premium being shoved into my face when I open the app. Only 2 books offline. 20 pictures per chapter. I get that creators need money, but this is just ridiculous. What happened?

honestly this app is amazing. i can't think of one bad thing about it except the fact that there are loads of adds when you read a chapter and there are paid books. other than that, you can publish them but its optional, and you can create a blurb and covers and also chapters its just honestly amazing. download it if you're looking for a "story writer" app

Hey, Love this app and the stories on it, though I randomly started gaining a lot of random followers, when I woke up I had 7 but later in the day I saw I had 17 followers, whichever turned to 28 really quickly then 36 in no time, like I would get a random follow every 10 or so minutes. If you know what is going on please let me know. Thank you!

Definitely needs improvement. I dislike that I see muted users books on my recommendations. I feel like Wattpad is less functional and money greedy. The old Wattpad was definitely more functional. You used to be able to have multiple offline books you could read but now you can only have two unless you want to spend a lot for Wattpad Premium. And now Wattpad is adding more pop-up ads in chapters, not even in between chapters anymore, which is highly annoying and shows they're money hungry.

Horrible. Just wrote a scene that took ages to write and suddenly my writing was deleted after leaving the app for a few seconds. I can't just write it again, it took too long - and the Revision History didn't help either. Sorry if this is rude, I am not in a good mood right now, SO annoyed.

Good app, a little glitchy at times but all around great. Edit: Dropped from a four star app to a one star because of the ads, what is with ad's bar when reading a story? I hate it and it looks ugly, I was fine with the occasional ad that popped up between chapters but this? No, get rid of it! If I could this would be a zero star app, now I'm gonna look at other apps that offer the same thing but better than this garbage!

i love the app to bits, but recently I've noticed that the website on PC and the phone app aren't going together at all, they'll randomly reorder different parts despite clicking save after you've moved it, and even worse they don't correspond when there's 11 parts published on pc with no drafts on the mobile app there will be 12 parts published or 11 part published with 1 draft. if this could be fixed that would be amazing.

Everything has been going fine with the app, except for when I use the tag page on search. Everytime, no matter what I type in, it always says that there is an error and something has gone wrong, even though I know that the tag exists. It's a good app, but a pretty annoying bug.

This app is really good for both readers and writers! It is very easy to use and there are alot of great writers on here that you can get inspiration from! I also have a suggestion.. maybe you could add annotations? So, when you're reading a book, you can highlight it and comment on your highlights. There's also an icon that you can click to show you if anyone else has annotated on that specific line. I think it'd be very helpful for people's writing, and fun too!

I love this app, but the chat option could be better. Also before there used to be an option in which you can quote any line you read. We want that back. Also the ads are really troubling, same add after every chapter, which is really irritating. I think that's what you should fix.

Amazing platform and great idea, but I don't think that the premium package is useful, or at least nit to me as I don't read more that one story at a time, plus I download the one I want then turn my WiFi off so I don't get ads, but overall its perfect!!!

This app is so good for readers, really easy to use. but so many ads show. Another problem is when we search a book from the search bar, our expected book doesn't show. That's it. Actually I really love Wattpad. I warning , this is little bit an addictive app.

Hi, I have suggestions for wattpad. What about giving a schedule features for uploading the chapter. Because I really need it, so the chapter could automatically uploaded at the time that we wants without worrying about the time. For example when we don't upload the new story as we promise to our readers. Thanks... I know my English is not the best. But I'm trying to tell my opinion.

I have been using Wattpad for years now. But, I have been unable to log in to my account for the last few months for some unknown reason. Everytime I enter my login details, the app says "unable to log you in at the moment, pls try again later." Their service is not the same as it used to be years ago :/ disappointed!

Way too many advertisements. Ads show up after completing a chapter, they are at the bottom of your screen. You also get advertisements when using the text to speech! How wonderful. What else are they gonna do to sponser stuff? I truly used to enjoy Wattpad, yet, it's completely downgraded. I can't have more than 4 books in my library because if I do it restarts back to the beginning of all the books I read. Regardless, I'll still use this app!! I just think the developers need to do better.

I don't know why they have added ads to the bottom of what you are reading it very distracting and it makes it unpleasant viewing experience. Plus not only do they have ads on the page you are reading they all so give ads in between chapters. I honestly wish they would have just kept the ads in between chapters that was fine with me I could deal with them, but I hate that there is now a little box at the bottom of the screen! It is annoying and it brightens the screen when I have on dark mode!

Dear Watpad, Wattpad has been a wonderful app to use both to read and to write but there has a been a tiny bug on mine. Ever since a few days ago i wanted to add a book to one of my reading lists, but when i tried to add it, the only option it shows was the library. I uninstalled the app then installed it back but it just didn't work. I hope you can fix this bug of some sorts

I really liked the app, but the ads are SO ANNOYING! LIKE! It keeps sending me to the app store for no reason. I don't mind the ads videos at the end of each chapter, BUT I WOULD LIKE TO ENJOY A CHAPTER IN PEACE! WITHOUT INTERPRETATIONS!!! Thank u, hope u limit the ads a bit. Till then 3/5 stars

Spent 2 hours writing. Wrote 5 paragraphs. Tried to save, it said it was already saved but the saving icon was just sitting there and wouldn't go away. I closed and opened the app. All my hard work is gone. Very unhappy that the autosave doesnt work and it crashed, losing all my hard work.

I just love this app... Like, if you're a book lover, you're gonna fall head over heels for it! Although it's kinda hard to promote your own books to others until and unless you're jumping in everyone's message board, screaming, 'READ THE STORIES I WROTE, YOU HOOMAN!'. But in my opinion, it's an issue which can be fixed if only we had something by which a majority of us could connect, like, if we could just form a group in the chats with similar interests, that would be VERY helpful :)))))

This app used to be so good untill they started to update it, now it's all adds, pages in books aren't loaded and it glitches. Before it was simple and nice but now it's just starting to go down hill. adds are ok but not on the page or as many.

A user since 2016, loved the app then. Now, not so much. I keep forgetting why I don't use Wattpad as much. Everytime I go back, there's something taken away for free users. The ads are not consistent and buggy too. Some has fast forward, some don't. You'll be stuck in loop of ads if you want to go to the previous chapter because you swipe to next chapter too fast and still doesn't direct you the previous chapter. If the author publish their work on different platform, check it out!

Been using this app for years! Ads showing every now and then were ok; annoying, but durable. Now there are flipping adds on the bottom of the page. And it's a moving add. Very distracting. Please remove this. I know I'm not the only one that finds this flipping distracting.

The app is really wonderful, yes, but I keep running into this problem. At first it was only on stories I was reading where it would freeze and I would have to restart the app and had to find my page again which really ruined the quality. The it started happening while I was writing, and now while I'm just scrolling through! It's ridiculous if you ask me. Can you please fix this?

Honestly I used to like this app. I could deal with ads every chapter other or so but now we have one on the bottom of the page constantly?!?!? It is a HUGE distraction and eyesore. As well a being bright and flashy especially in dark mode. Makes the app feel like I'm on a sketchy website not a place to read the books I love. Wattpad it looks horrible and takes away from the quality of your app.

I love this app but now there is like a permanent ad at the bottom of the screen and it's very distracting from when I'm trying to read I don't really enjoy this as very off-putting to the reading experience when you have dark mode on (Edit: for a while now the ad at the bottom wasn't there, but then it suddenly appeard. Now even more annoyed)

I've used this app since 2016 and back then it was truly awesome to read and write but recently the ads that have been popping up has been totally ruining my experience with reading the stories here! Oh and don't get me started with trying to write books because this is just a "what is going on" type issue so anytime I've tried to write my stories and save them it ALWAYS says "issue with saving the story please try again later" and then it ends up DELETING ALL MY WORK!! THIS IS GETTING WORSE

It's a good app overall but there's to many ads I was fine with it before but they've added them at the bottom of the screen and it distracting and makes it less enjoyable to read also to avoid the ads in between chapters just go to the last chapter and scroll up to the first and go through all the chapters and it won't make you watch any

I have no problems with the ads or whatsoever but what I really hate at the moment is the ads at the bottom of the screen and the issue with my library. I had 1114 books in my library but then they disappeared and only had 669 books. Can the developers please fix this problem

Once again, the ads are getting more annoying when I'm trying to read a book and trying the read the next chapter. Especially when there's an ad at the bottom of the screen that won't go away unless I pay premium which I'm not going to do cause I'm not wasting my money for that. At this point, I think Wattpad is getting more greedy with putting more ads that nobody asked for. I wish they'd go back to the old Wattpad that had no ads or paid stories so people can read without interruptions.

Great stories!!!! App is quite easy to use. You need to pay for the ad free version of the app but still the app doesn't have too many ads, it's bearable. Ads are there and you have to pay for some stories too, like chapter wise. Some of the starting chapters are free and to open the rest you have to pay. But it still has some great stories which are completely free. You are able to save books online too, not a lot but quite a few.

To be fair, wattpad is fun, all of the stories, romance and creative fanfictions, but one thing that really gets on my nerves is when I always update wattpad, or just save my stories, my Chapters of my own book gets switched upped and when I switch it back nothing happens it stays the same. I think it could be a glith or what not but please try to fix it.

Its a great app. Ive been on wattpad for over 6 years. And its been great the only thing that annoys me and pretty much everyone who uses the free package are the ads, but if i gotta watch ads for wattpad to be able to stay operational or pay writers or keep my free mode, then its worth it

May 24, 2022
A very good app. I write and read on it almost every day. My only complaints are that it shows all these dangers about smoking ads. If they showed others it would be a nice change of pace, and it will cater to storys or books you read on there, even if it's not saved to your library or a reading list. It also keeps deleted storys in your library / Reading lists, and it's annoying to find a story you were looking for, only for it to be deleted, or moved so only a certain audience can see it.

I've mostly used wattpad on my computer and it's great. It's better to type without making a mistake, there aren't any interruptions, and it's just overall fun. I've made a lot of friend on there. I understand what some of you are saying about now doesn't let you publish stories or purchase stories. But in my opinion I find this app very fun and relaxing.

I've used wattpad since 2014 and obviously stuff has changed. Some stories you have to pay for and way more ads. I don't think those changes are bad, ads keep the app running so whatever. But now there are disruptive banner ads that stay at the bottom of the screen in chapter. They're bright white and I read in dark mode so they're extremely noticeable and hard on your eyes in dark lighting. This was a terrible move and will deter alot of readers. I would rather scroll past an embedded ad.

I gave it four stars since there were only two tales available offline when I mistakenly updated wattpad, and at the time I just wanted to sleep, lol. But I'm sure wattpad loves me so much, because my available offline have suddenly returned to the normal 25. Although still nervous, the lessons learnt do not clear data or update. I hope you guys will fix this, huhu.

It's doing what its supposed to do, just with too many unwanted side effects. 1) The book acts if a chapter was never published, even when the writer personally confirms that he did publish it and in fact it already has views. Had to delete and reinstall the app to fix it. 2) The options "Bonus Chapters" and "Writer's Reveal" show up, but disappear the moment I click them. Also, the writer confirmed he made no such bonus chapters or anything. There's more but I have ran out of space to write.

I love this app, I do, I've read hundreds if stories and fanfictions and it's the best reading app I've come across, but there is a problem. I like to wrote stories, and today, I spent a good 2-3 hours writing an amazing story that I was confident in (Which almost never happens), but then, I went to edit it, AND EVERY SINGLE CHAPTER WAS DELETED! I'm so pissed because now I'll never be able to get that back, I can rewrite the story but I've already forgotten some of it. Please fix this.

I wish we could open the YouTube videos while reading like in web ver. And ads shown in end of the almost every chapter are horrible. Creating or updating books is so hard, I have to wait hours for it to open. There is a problem with notifications too. I don't get them. Terrible. I also hate the bottom ads line. It is so distracting and annoying. NOW I UNDERSTAND WHY PEOPLE DON'T USE WATTPAD ANYMORE. If it continues like that Wattpad will be just an empty trash can.

Personally I think this app is a very good choice if your looking for any kind of storys. You can find thinks from the storys about vampires that roam the night to the fanfiction wonderland. It has a lot of thinks and I think the add of the offline storys is very good, especially for me, as where I am wifi is always going connected to disconnected. The only issue is that things can get quite Lagg from time to time and some storys are abit .. (you know what I mean). wouldn't be good for children.

I love it, I've used it for a year or so now(before the time there was a limit to offline books). What I DON'T like is that ad bar at the bottom of the screen, not only is it distracting, it completely unnecessary! We get ad viewing already. I understand that they want readers to buy the premium + or whatever. But some don't have that kind of money. SO can we get a ONE TIME purchase so that we can AT LEAST get rid of the ad bar.

Seriously Wattpad. The app has gone from bad to worse. I'm having issues with updating stories from my app and the app messes up the sequence of the chapters, no matter how I add them or it adds extra chapters of the updated chapters if I add new chapters. And it doesn't fix them when I try to fix them from the contents settings. It's an epic mess and makes updating difficult.

This app is my first download of books, I had a good experience with this app, but the amount of ads is too much. When you write a story in this app, it's also good, there's more editing. When I read the story of this app, I change the paging, when I move the page, the page repeats and the next one is there. This app is also easy to use, but I hope the account can be deleted.

AAAAAAAA THE STORIES IN WATTPAD ARE SO GOOOOOODDDDD!!!! The authors on wattpad are very good writers! Though there seems to be a problem, and this has been going on for 2 days... Whenever i read a story/book, it says "Oops! This story is not available offline", even if i have my wifi on.. Last night, the power got cut off here in the city.. and ever since it got back on it still wrote "Oops! This story is not available offline".. Can you maybe fix it? Anyways, still the best!

The app is overall really good nd I have been using it for Atleast 2-3 yrs now but all of a sudden it is showing only 2/2 offline stories nd when I want to add more it shows the limit of only 2 . You really should check the app for this since many people are facing this problem now.

It used to be a really good app but now with all the ads its really distracting plus whenever i search anything it says there are no books related to that tital no mayter what i search up or it only pulls up one book that has absoulty NOTHING to do with what i looked for at all!!! Not really worth paying a sub cause it only went downhill after that last update.

Hey! Long time user here! Um, so the little bar at the bottom of my screen, yeahh, the ad. Let me just say that I absolutely despise it. Also, why do you need it? There's already an ad after 3 chapters. Also, while I'm doing this, I also, have hated, and will always hate your coins and the pay books, or the premium. Honestly once premium was added, it lost the feel of the old wattpad. G'day :)

Lots of ppl complain but despite the ads, the stories are phenomenal. You have the choice to skip 98 percent of the ads and plus the ads only pop up really when your going chapter to chapter. You also have the option to not read certain stories and create your own filters... I've been on this app since like 2011 and it's my number 1 reading app. And it didn't use to be an ad app or paid app however most of the books on the app aren't paid and are good. I haven't paid ever and it's great ☺️.

It's great reading at Wattpad, it's just that I really miss the old version where I can save my favorite lines and quotes. I have a few of them before and it's just nostalgic when I try to find the button for that because it's already gone. Oh, and the ads, they are everywhere! And sometimes, I click on it accidentally when looking at the story info, then when it's done, I'm already angry.

I like the app. I found stories according to my high standards and it motivated me to b productive. It also gave me chance to share my own imaginations. There's no glitches or bugs. The available offline stories r 25 and thats alright w me(it was 4 or 5 before). The problems are (1) the quote option is not available anymore. I hope u put it back again. (2) the previous notifications were deleted, i forgot the titles i read before and hoping i can see it in notification but it was ALL deleted :((

I gave it a two stars because i like the stories in it.Wattpad is a good app but it is glitchy my stories that i added to my library is always replaced by the ones that i have already read and its getting annoying i spent a lot of time sorting and searching stories to read and its hard because once you search it only the popular one pops up and i have read those already.There is some glitchy bug going here and there,I sincerely hope you can improve it to be better :)

I love roleplaying and reading the fanfictions. But I don't like the fact that we only get two saved stories. Also I'm getting notifications left in my notifications tab of books I did not save. I don't want these notifications as I don't want to read these books and it's filling my notification box. Please fix this. Also, I really hate the new Bio editing format.

Another problem is when I want to publish a chapter on my fanfic. It would always say error! I would have to delete the app and reinstall it over and over again, and its getting very infuriating. Other than that its a very good app :)

What is this?? It's so distracting and I don't want to read anymore! Wattpad you've got some SERIOUS fixing you need to do! I've had this app for literal years, 5+!! Just SO disappointing! :(

Okay, love the app and everything, but I would appreciate it going back to only having to watch the one add and being able to go back between chapters. If you accidentally go to the next chapter you get an add, and then when you try to go back you get ANOTHER add. You don't even get go back to the other chapter. Not to mention that each add has three separate skip buttons...just one or two should suffice. I want to use this app more, but this is a hassle that makes it hard.

The app is good for book lovers, especially fanfiction lovers. And for aspiring writers, it is a great app to showcase your talent. Writing, Editing and Publishing the story is quite easy. Just one problem, that I am facing is, whenever I try to post a message on someone else's account it shows message posted, but the message isn't visible on their account. Please wattpad, solve this problem with the app. Its really annoying....

I have been using Wattpad for 5 years and ads were not bad. Now it's full of ads even if I go back to a previous chapter there are like 3 ads and they are really unnecessary. The ads used to be bare minimum now it's just nonsense . If you guys want us to pay full time, just tell us. You can't enjoy a story if there are ads every damn 2 minutes. If I was writing this review 3 years ago I would have given it 5 stars. You are even deleting people's stories for absurd reasons.

I've been a long time app user and have experienced the differing versions of the app. BUT, the addition of banner ads at the bottom of the screen is horrible. They're intrusive, distracting, and disrupting. They cover words and sentences. The ads are taking over the app. I get inflation, drops in users, and/or whatever the cause but when it comes to the overuse of ads, customer/user satisfaction should triumph. Next thing we know, there an ad after turning a page

Too many adds. In the beginning it was fine but now it's conastnt it's so so annoying. Laso the search system sucks. I search up a specific title of a book and the result show books with titles that's barely even any letter matching. I have to search the writers username and then go to their profile to find the book. Seriously thinking of switching to another app or ao3. Do better wattpad cause ya'll will end up with no readers.

I used to love Wattpad, and although I still do, I think the ads are starting to get to me. There's too many. They're fine between chapters, albeit a bit too frequent, but really annoying along the bottom of the chapter, and they don't go away. I do recommend it because of the ease of use, but if a lot of ads are a deal breaker, I suggest waiting until they either lessen or remove the ones inside of chapters entirely.

Litterally the best app out there! You can have an infinite amount of stories added to your library and can make as many reading lists as you want so it's easily organized! The writing is so good too! You can write in bold, italics, and even underlined! The only thing I have wrong with the writing is that you cannot use different fonts, which would be really nice to add to the story- anyway, the app is really nice, it's helped me write and read some amazing stories Ads are the WORST!!

This is a great app, there's plenty of books and a huge variety. The authors are great and it's a great app for beginner writers to share their writing with the world. However I am having a few issues with this app but it's not just this one so it's probably just my phone. It keeps auto closing and I've uninstalled and reinstalled at least 7 times. If anybody know how to fix this that would be great. Xx (Edit: it was just my phone lmao, got a new one a few months ago and it's all good! Xx)

I would have given five stars but the major notification problem is annoying. I sometimes get notifications very late and this creates situations with other readers/writers. Please, it is recommended to provides a more stable update to the application. Thank you in advance. Including emojis (and everyone can use it, not part of a premium) will be really great.

This app use to be amazing back in the day I have had it for at least 5+years. Now it has alot of ads everywhere, read a chapter get an ad, click on a book get an ad, the ads are also at the bottom of the pages aswell.Back when I first used the app everything was free & you could use everything without an issue the app was perfect but now this app has a lot of ads and issues. Please restore this app back to its former glory. You don't have to make everything free again but make more options free

Completely gold. I can write my own stories any time any where,even when I'm offline. But there are a few problems with wattpad tho. First the paid stories,when it comes to people who are broke wattpad made a solution to add a ad button that gives coins as a award but most of the time they aren't in the app and I needed to do lots of stuff just to get it. And second complaint is that I wish that there are more style or font when it comes to the letters. Either way it's a really good app.

I have been using the app for few months and I really like it. Overall app is good but It's my humble request for the creator to add another feature that shows the publishing date of every chapter in the book so that it's easier to determine the time the writer is taking to update a book and it is easier to understand if the book is discontinued or on going.

I loved using Wattpad, and I have used it for more than 5 years. But its clear they don't care about readers when they added unbearable ads. It forces people to either choose to pay the subscription which is a lot of money or not use the app. I was fine with ads in-between chapters but now they added ads in the book which is a major distraction. Can you imagine reading a book with ads in it? Your better off using an app that actually respects readers and isn't money hunger!

I really miss the old version of Wattpad. Not because there's unlimited access to offline stories but because there's this feature wherein while reading, I can save my favorite lines or quote. I can even decide if I want to use the cover as the background or pick from other options available. Like why was this taken down? It's not like it can copy a whole chapter! Not everyone noticed this feature but a few does and I'm one of that disappointed few. Bring it backkkk. I don't care about updates.

I absolutely adored this app since it brings back so much nostalgia. Lately they seem to be very money hungry (I assume it's for the competitions) but the ads I am watching- the money isn't even going to the story that I'm reading (bc it's free)! I would feel better if it was going to the author I'm supporting but it's not and the ads end up being a major distraction. It's gotten to the point where I turn off my internet to read a story.

This used to be a really good app, I used to love reading on this. But now it's full of ads and they even put an ad banner at the bottom of the pages, you also have to pay for everything and it's really annoying. There's bugs, for instance at the end of a chapter some lines sometimes disappear when you read it in pagination mode. Plus the app crashes all the time for me, I can't read 2 chapters without the screen becoming fully grey and the book info showing.

I've been using this app for years and it used to be amazing, but recently with all the new updates it's become super annoying to use. Everytime I finish a chapter I get an ad, sometimes one will randomly pop up in the middle of a chapter, now I can brush this off but actually putting ads at the bottom of the pages really annoys me. I get I need to pay to have no ads but unfortunately for people who don't have money this sucks For anyone wanting the app I suggest paying or not getting it at all.

I like this app, but now we have a ad bar at the bottom of EVERY SINGLE CHAPTER. So it blocks some of the story, it's annoying sometimes. Then, I also write on Wattpad, and sometimes I'll add about 3 spaces between thing and I'll save it to work on later, but when I open the chapter back up there is only 1 space when I saved 3 spaces, it's annoying. But aside from that, I enjoy the app and the people that are on there so, I do recommend it.

Love it its amazing one issue I can't load certain stories I've read them before and I want to read them again but every time I try to click on it, it says "there is a problem connecting to wattpad' I've tried for more than 3 months to read it. I would really love to read those stories. Please fix this! And yes I can read other stories

I mostly use the app for fanfiction, and while it is a great app, I don't like how today I just got ad bars on the bottom of my screen whenever I read. Lowkey, It's kind of pissing me off, the ad bars were not there this morning, but then they just decide to randomly show up. Their annoying, distracting, and downright unnecessary.

I've been on this app for a while now, and I didn't mind the adds. Sure it's annoying that every other page there's an add, but I was okay with that. But now, they've begun showing adds while ON the reading page at the bottom and it's EXTREMELY distracting and infuriating! I can't focus on reading and the changing, moving, flashing add on the bottom. It really ruins the quality of reading.

I usually love this app as I love reading and seeing other peoples work. But the inflation of ads is very annoying to me. I never minded the ads every few pages or so, because I can't afford premium, but now I've noticed an ad bar at the bottom of the pages which is usually a very popping image. It is very frustrating to read with the ad bar and has made it so I dont want to use the app as much.

I love this app and I love reading on it but as of today 5-3-2022 I've been asking something strange ads are popping up at the bottom of my screen where I'm reading my book it's slightly annoying and very irritating. And there's no way to get rid of it without buying premium which I don't want to and it's just annoying and I'm considering deleting the app because that's not what it came here for is to read without distractions. I did not come ads at the bottom of the screen.

Love this app use it all the time. has a great variety of thing for readers of all kinds. You can find so much on this app from romance to thrillers to fanfiction they have it and a wide selection for things in each category. Don't like that I can only have 2 books offline at a time and don't like that when I'm offline the pictures don't load and it keeps telling you over and over and over again. I don't write so idk what it's like from that perspective but love the app just to read nonetheless

I've been using Wattpad for years now and I've never had any problems with it, but I think there's a big problem with the ads. I don't mind watching an ad after a chapter but now there have been added ad bars to the bottom of the chapters. They are quite annoying and distracting, especially when you have 'dark mode' on.

I understand the ads that you get after a chapter if you don't have premium. I have no problem with that. But the ad that appears on the bottom of the screen while reading was really unnecessary and it's annoying having to see that while reading. If that could be removed it would be nice😊. But all in all it's a great app to read fan-fics and other stories

This app is the highlight of my days! I love it so much and there is so many amazing stories which you can get completely free. Most people would complain about adds but they dont really bother me. I mean it is kinda annoying when im in the middle of a story and an add plays but i dont really mind it. I just enjoy everything Wattpad has to offer and focus on the pros not the cons. <3

It's good. I'd give it a three because I wish that, there's something they can do when searching for mature tags and all the screen shows is "oops something went wrong, please try again later" this has always been a problem, for me at least. Sometimes it works and I get to see books that are in the tags I want but most of the time it doesn't and it just frustrates me that I have to use other tags to get in the specific tag I want.

Been using Wattpad for years now, noticed there are quite a few bugs lately. The missing text bug on the last page can be fixed by just using the scroll bar on the bottom of the page, but other bugs are not as bearable. Such as being unable to reorder chapters when editing and the app crashing on PC when attempting to edit certain chapters. Also where is the about section on PC and why is it always "unavailable"? Other than the many bugs I still enjoy using it.

I'd been using Wattpad for years now and I don't have a serious issue with it. There's some annoying glitches here and there—like when I'm suddenly redirected to a random account in the middle of reading—but so far, I still prefer to stick with the app. It'd be nicer if it had a dictionary, though. Kinda like when you highlight a word/phrase on a website and google gives you the definition. It'll be very handy for writers and readers alike. Also, I really hope it becomes more offline-friendly.

I love this app, I've been using it for 8 years or so. The adds in-between chapters took some getting used to, but I don't mind them. However, the adds on the bottom of the screen is not something I can get used to. It keeps catching my eyes and I can't focus on what I'm reading. It is really annoying. I love all the different stories on wattpad, but the adds might be a deal-breaker.

I love Wattpad, it's entertaining and I have a lot of fun reading and even writing. I get to be artistic and read things I'm actually interested in, especially when books in real life aren't really my thing, reading out loud in class is nerve wrecking for me and my nervousness can effect the way I read such as;not reading a word properly, stumbling over words, reading to fast/slow, getting stuck on words I already know, forgetting how to pronounce sertain words and a few other things.

I've had this app since 2013 and loved reading, writing, and interacting with stories/people. Lately, they've had a serious issue with ad inflation. As I can't afford premium, I didn't mind having a video every few chapters or a still banner between the rest but they've started adding ad bars to the bottom of each page. Having a bright, flashing, constantly changing ad bar at the bottom of every page you read, it's awful. Its distracting and blocks sentences. It makes me not want to use it.

I adore wattpad so much, but some things need fixing. As an author, when I edit chapters, it can take up to a month until the readers also get the changes. I am also pissed off at the fact that wattpad has started putting ads on the reading screen, because as someone who can barely concentrate on reading at all, wattpad being the only way for me to even read at this point, that really ruins any sort of concentration. I haven't been able to read properly since, and struggle covering up the ads

Simply too many ads. I held off on this review because I understand that developers need to recoup money but now there's ads at the bottom of the page while you read. It's off-putting and ruins the flow of stories, especially when music from footnote ads start playing out of nowhere. Not that any reviews seem to make a difference anyway, judging by some of the critical ones I've read with no response.

I've been using the app for a few years, but recently it's becoming increasingly more terrible. You only get one private reading list. It used to be there was only one add in about an hour. I used to beable threw multiple chapters like 10 or an entire book. Before I whould get an add, now it's an add after every 2 chapters. There are much more adds than before and uts becoming annoying and bothersome.

i love the app, im allowed to read content based off of characters i love dearly and see anyones interesting work. its very fun and simple to use. my only problem is the ad on the bottom of stories, i would have to press of them in order for them to disappear, and it is rather annoying. the video ads are already enough to handle. thank you.

I only got Wattpad back in 2020 so the version it is now is the only version I've ever known. I think the app is straightforward, ads are a bit much but it's tolerable, and in general it's great. My only recommendation is the option to turn our reading lists private. Alot of my reading lists are nonsense to other people. For example, why would anyone look through a reading list with all the stories I've ever read, or one with stories I'm waiting another part for? Please consider it, Thank you.

It says last uodated last week, it updated for me again last night. It is so much worse.

I regret updating the app, if only I had known.

New update keeps randomly bringing me to apps like you would get from clicking on an ad. This is happening when I'm nowhere close to touching my screen. I've always loved Wattpad on mobile, I've never minded the ad interruptions, but this keeps happening in the middle of parts and it's very annoying.

Very addicting and inspiring. Everyone on this app are very kind and open with a few exceptions. But the one thing that annoys me a little is when you search for a specific story or author sometimes it won't pop up and it gets irritating. But overall great app, great community, and very motivating if your looking to start your own story or improve your writing/typing skills!

The app is now mostly ads and recommendations that aren't even close to what you have in your library. It was annoying enough to have ads after every chapter but having an ad banner at the bottom of the screen *while* reading just defeats the basic purpose of Wattpad: provide a platform of accessible stories from people around the world. Now it's that one app that disappoints with every update.

App bordering on unusable I've been using it for a decade now, and I can deal with the ads between chapters (though it is extremely annoying having a thirty second add for every two minutes of reading), but now there's a permanent ad on the bottom while reading. it is distracting and makes it impossible to focus on the actual book with the colours and flashing. I'm sad about it, but I won't be coming back to wattpad until the ads become more bearable.

The adds are getting out of hand usually it's just between chapters but now there are adds in the bottom of the screen and it ruins it because you keep getting distracted. There us also no exit button on the adds in the bottom of the screen so it kinda ruins the experience. Other than that the app is great.

I love wattpad and have been using it for years now. I'm both an author and reader. But I find that sometimes when adding new chapters to my books, the chapters get swapped and I cannot put them in order even after switching them back. When I press save, it just swaps again which is really frustrating. I'm not sure if anyone else has experienced this issue. But I appreciate the developers for taking a look at my review. Keep up the amazing work :)

I had been using Wattpad from quite some time now and had no issues till a few weeks ago. Now it just suddenly stops working or shuts down on its own! Sometimes the story I am reading also gets closed on its own and I have to search for the chapter I was on! It is not even letting me update my story! I have my draft ready from past three days but whenever I try to publish it, Wattpad just gives a message of an error occurred please try again later! It's just so frustrating! Please fix ths soon!

There are more and more ads. Its kind of anoying when you are trying to read a story and there is an add at the bottom of the page, its distracting. Everytime I am trying to read, I see the add either moving or changing in the corner of my eye and it gets really anoying. I realy hope they fix this.

Adding ads on the bottom of the screen? Whats that for? The ads that appear in between two or three chapters are alright, not any less annoying but alright. Now, the ads on the bottom are an issue. They simply disturb the reading. You try focusing on the words but the constant movement on the bottom of the screen just doesn't allow you to fully immerse in the story. I've been using the app for ages, endured the paid stories (which are okay, ig), adds between chapters — but was this necessary? No

Love hate relationship. Wattpad is amazing honestly. The four years I've had it. Great. Easy to publish and read books of all genres. Only a few problems. Adds, im aware that's how apps make money without purchasing anything, but way too consistent. Also newly updated chapters and accessing them. For example, one of my favourite books got updated three days ago, and I'm yet too be able too read it. When I tried too read it, I got kicked off and the book was taken from my library.

I like the app I just wanted to say that my app on my phone keeps having ads sit at the bottom of my screen which is really annoying and distracting. Another thing is that when you try to go back and look at a previous chapter, it plays another ad and still doesnt let you go back. Just hoping these can be fixed or changed because it's really frustrating

I loved reading on the app till the adds at the bottom of pages was added. It is very distracting and doesn't go away the adds are usually videos playing. I am very disappointed with how the app went down hill. I liked how it was a few months ago but now it is very different. I will be looking for a new app to read on. I still love the books writers post on the app but it is horrible add wise.

I read Wattpad years ago on an old account I can't access. The ads are becoming absurdly distressing. The ads force you to watch over 20 seconds of advertising. Recently everything I read has ads on the bottom of the screen while I scroll down. If I try to reach a previous chapter after seeing an ad, it gives me another ad and keeps me in the same chapter.

Got this app in 2020, so I can't say much about how much it's changed like other users who have been a user of it since way earlier, but even since 2020, the app is flooded with ads. I realize yall need to make money, but the way you put ads in is not the way to do it. Every 2 chapters, there is an ad, and if your lucky, every 3 chapters. It totally breaks my focus when reading a book, because of the ads. I feel that you should make an ad pop up every 5 or so chapters, to make them scarce.

The app is good. But for writer there need to have option of adding video from album. Not every writer have YouTube chancel. As me a writer I wanted to add a video of 45 sec and I couldn't because of this. And that video was not available in YouTube. Please try to put that feature ASAP. Much needed. Except that everything about app is great. Thank you.

I used to love this app. But that declined with the introduction of subscriptions, and paid stories. Ones i added to my library way before, end up becoming paid as well and then require to be unlocked. Also the frequency of adds are getting annoying, and the developers are abusing with every dang time after the add, promoting premium to "avoid interruptions." Which makes the interruption longer and more annoying in itself. I wish the developers care more about the users, like they used to.

Wattpad is a really good reading app and I absolutely adore it. But the ads have gotten out of control at this point. I really don't care about the ads in between chapters since they're usually only about 15 seconds long, but I just opened the app and now there are ads on the bottom of my screen whenever I'm reading and they aren't the ads where I can simply click an x and they'll go away, they just stay there on the screen as I'm reading and it just ruins the experience.

Used to love the app where I could read and get an ad only after 2 chapters which was ok. But now theres an ad at the bottom of the screen that can't be clicked off. I feel like Wattpad just doesn't care anymore or that they wouldn't have enough people getting their no ad subscription so they resort to putting one at the bottom of the screen. I could deal with an ad after 2 chapters, but this is ridiculous.

I love the app. Unfortunately tho, I'm a writer. And sometimes, when I'm writing a chapter, it'll randomly delete itself, which is really frustrating, especially when I'm working on a 2000 or 3000 word chapter and it just deletes itself. Please fix this, it's really annoying. I've already lost 3 chapters bc of this glitch. Fix it ASAP. I shouldn't have to have a backup in my notes for this.

Way too many ads I've used wattpad for more than 5 years now and they've been pushing way more ads than what I'm used to... There's an advert after every chapter that I read, no matter how short it is or even if the author left a short note. Now while reading there's an ad banner across the bottom of the screen... I don't mind watching adverts but don't make it too constant as a reader I lose interest very quickly as my mind gets distracted and that pushes me to other reading apps.

Good app overall. Has dark mode option for night time reader's or just people who like it dark. Easy to navigate and has lists. I respect that it shows an ad after every 2 or 3 chapters. If ads are a problem for you I recommend reading online, because you don't have to watch ads and can have tabs on multiple so you don't have to gradually scroll to see that one story you liked but lost it for another story. I like how some stories have the audio version it's cool 😎. 10/10

I love this app, I'm on it basically 24/7. It's easy access and easy to control. I also love how when I'm reading in the dark with dark mode, it easier to read and it doesn't hurt my eyes. Also, Wattpad. I have a suggestion. For people who get car sick, or can't read very well, or can't see well, you should have an audiobook option on all books. That way you can listen to the story while you do other things.

The interface for writing is alright, but the problem is the delay with updates, specially when it comes to reordering chapters. The changes take a long while to be reflected, closing the app then opening it over and over again still doesn't do it. And then there are the many times when there'll be conflicts with the saving of chapters, that wpuld just loop infinitely to where it just won't fix to a specific version until you restart the app. Very buggy.

I personally like wattpad, it's just nice reading and writing on the same app. I only got it a few days ago so I didn't get much adds and I don't like the paid books (I'm more into fanfics) so I can't say say anything about that. I'm currently working on a book and sometimes the draft doesn't save and controls are a bit confusing.Some parts of the stories are repeated and that's a bit annoying as well. Overall really good app but I wouldn't recommend to beginners it takes time to understand

Wattpad is a really great app with tons of choices to pick. It has been really slow over the last update. I do love the fact the app shows you the # of books in your library, but I feel like it's also deleting some of the books I added before. And the feature where you can quote from the book and pick the background, I am soo missing that. It only shares through Facebook qnd Twitter. Also I suggest reading lists that are private.

This app is really good, There are so many varieties of stories to choose from, and the stories are very interesting too, plus the controls are easy and simple. A lot of stories can be found here, from fanfiction, fantasy, LGBTQ+, Romance, Thriller, horror, .etc. However, I prefer no ads, every chapter I see a literal ad, however the app is Wonderful in every way. Thanks for making this app!

I absolutely love wattpad, it's nice to read when I'm bored or have no Internet (By downloading 2 books) but when I do have Internet and try to read there's ads after basically every chapter, and its incredibly frustrating, I don't mind an ad every 5 chapters or so but it gets boring and makes me loose interest in the book I'm reading when I get them continously. Great App though, I definitely recommend.

while I like the app & have been using it for past couple years, there's this issue I've been facing for a while now. I use paging mode & when I read a book & then turn to the next page, I have to find the line where I left on the last page because almost half of the text of the previous one comes over to the next. I was hoping one of the new updates would fix this issue, but no such luck yet. I also don't know if I'm the only one facing it because I don't see anyone raising this specific issue.

You know I absolutely love this app. I've had it for years. It's easy to use, it's fast, and it's great overall but I have two thing I would like to see updated. 1. The ads, I don't like being bombarded with ads after just reading one part of a story. Its just to much. 2. I would like to be able to see who is reading my stories and when they read it. I want to know who's reading them so I can tell what they like by their reading lists so I can change and make my stories appeal to them more.

I love this app! Both read and write on it constantly. But, it keeps doing this thing where it takes my Reading Lists away. Like I'll try and add a new book and they aren't there. They are only there when I try to find one already added. Update: deleting and redownloading the app seems to fix it, make sure you remember your log in, drafts save

I'm usually not really bothered by apps, but the way they are implemented here is poor. For example, I tried swiping back up to go to the previous chapter (i.e. from chp 26 to 25) and it keeps playing an ad, and then when its over, it doesn't even take me back to chp 25, I'm still on 26. Even worse, no matter how many times I swipe up, it'll just keep repeating this. Actually atrocious. I think I'll stick to your website then this dumpster fire of an app.

Also the fact that the ads are numerous and pop up every 2 chapters or so, it's really annoying. But other than that it a good app... I recommend it👍👍

perhaps the only problem i have is the amount of ridiculous ads. the only way to remove this factor is to pay (won't do) and to add the book to offline library and turn off the internet for no ads. there is also a problem with other websites (riddled with viruses sometimes) stealing works, novelhd is one example, and i would like wattpad to comprehend this and work on it. other than that, it's a nice place to share your works and connect with other writers.

Best reading app I've ever had until recently. It's doing this annoying thing when Im trying to add a story to a reading list but it's not giving me the option unless I close the app then reopen it, and even then if I don't add it quickly I have to start all over again. I have to do that whole process for EVERY story that I'm trying to add to or remove from a reading list. Please fix this problem 🙏

I have been using this app for 1 year. I had no complaints about it in the beginning. But now when I read a story which is ongoing it shows the writer uploaded new chapter in the list but when I click on that it shows the writer has not uploaded. And for this I have to uninstall the app again install it for getting the new chapters. Even after regularly updating the app it shows the same problem. Please look at this. It's my heartfelt request to you guys...Hope you'll solve this problem soon

But the problem is, theres this 1 ad, i couldn't skip it, theres no X button, and it won't get closed. Its basically stayed and remain on the screen. And then, i had to close the app and lost my last search. Please do something

Absolutely Love this app, I've made so many friends and I love how simple it is to write on it! But recently, I was writing something, and it keeps freezing every time it tries to save or something, so I have to close out the app and go back in, and then it erases all my work. Also, once I use one font, it changes the whole text, then when I fix it, it changes it back! Please fix this when you can, I'll try restarting my phone, hopefully it fixes it if I do. Thank you!

Very good app for reading. I enjoy it so much. Easy to navigate, save your favourite books, communicate with your readers/authors, and give your favorite authors support. My biggest issue now is that I'll be writing a chapter and the app will just crash, and delete the entire chapter. Even if it "autosaves" nope that chapter is gone have fun rewriting it now. Now I'm also having issues sorting my reading lists. It won't even let me edit them. Please fix it, so annoying.

I'm getting really tired of this app. I used to love reading the different stories on here before it got flooded with ads. I dealt with watching an ad after every two chapters, as annoying as it was. But now there are ads at the bottom of the screen while I'm reading, which completely breaks my immersion. I wouldnt complain if they were pop-ups that you could click off of, but they're stuck there with no chance of going away. I feel like Wattpad just doesn't care about it's users anymore.

I like this app. There are so many instresting stories to read. But there are a lot of adds. And after each chapter of a story there's an add at the end and its super annoying. I also notice that alot of stories are written in Spanish. So it would be nice if wattpad added a translater to the app. So you can translate the words in books that you don't understand. If that ends up happening then I'll give rate it five stars.

The app has been really glitching lately. There are many stories that I can't access, even though they're in my library. I have to go to the author's profile and find the story again. Even if I remove them and then add them in my library again the problem isn't fixed. I can't move those specific stories either. They're constantly at the bottom of my library appearing as read stories, even though I haven't finished them.This has been going on for quite a while, so please do something to fix it!!

It's not as bad as what other reviews make it seem to be. Sure, it's no longer unlimited, but the update is more convenient. The adds aren't too much either, just close your WiFi or data when you're reading, then turn it back on when you search for new stories. Paid stories are necessary for authors, it's to support them financially. It's optional and it ain't like they're forcing you to spend money to read their books. There are plenty other options. Just give it a go. Have fun :)))

I have an issue, I know that ads are inevitable but that's tolerable considering that this is a free app however what infuriates me is that at random times there's an ad about lazada that automatically brings me to the app store to install that app and I didn't even click the ad. It just shows up in random intervals. Please fix this, I've no problem with ads but you need to remove the random loading screen going to the app store.

I've been using Wattpad for 3 years now and I didn't really have any problems until certain updates. When I try to read one of my book the app will glitch out and close completely. When I opened the app this morning it was telling me that only two stories were available offline. I tried restarting the app and even deleting it and installing it back but when I did that my screen would freeze. I talked to my friend about it and when she showed her her library it was the same as before.

I absolutely love Wattpad I've had it since 2014 and I still am on it to this day, its easy to navigate and it gives great recommendations too. The only thing I wish they would do, is make it to were we are allowed to put the books into different folders in our library. My OCD gets really triggered because I can't have them separated by categories. I am happy I can at least sort them by either author, alphabetical, or when I added them. But it just bothers me that I can't create multi folders.

Ok, this app really does help developing writers, but my only request is that we could change the font when typing. Especially when writing, I need something other than Times New Roman, I prefer using Comic Sans, and I have friends that use other fonts. Also, the ability to change fonts in a chunk of text by selecting the text and having a font menu would be great!

i really really love this app but will all the updates i think it's gone down hill. also don't know if it's just me but sometimes pages will repeat themselves or words from a story will be cut off so i'll have to leave and reopen the story AT LEAST 2 or 3 times. I've reset my phone, logged out, even uninstalled the app and reinstalled it so many times i've lost count and the previous problems i've mentioned still haven't been fixed. i write on here myself and it hurts to give it three stars.

I've had wattpad for years and its mostly been ok, but lately its not even working. I can look up and add all the books I want I just can't read them or even look at the authors profile. It was best before the constant ads and the subscriptions. Not even starting on the tagging system. You can't find anything specific no matter how you look it up or word your search.

I've been using Wattpad for years and the past few years, more recently, my current reads page are always buffering and not loading the latest adds and my works list seems to glitch and its quite annoying. And my reading lists don't always show the new books I've added. I've waited for Wattpad updates to see if it fixes itself but it's still doing it. There should be more options and rearranging how I want, like paid stories list to go last, making sure new adds (books) are always up to date.

The app on my LG (android) is honestly awful. I love all the stories on the platform but every update makes opening slower, refresh slower, loading my library very slowly and for the past few months a lot of the stories in my library and offline I guess fail- the story no longer loads, just a black screen with an image of a girl reading. At first i thought they were just removed but now i realize that it's happening to too many to be a coincidence. And it's really frustrating. PLEASE FIX ASAP!!

I have had this app for a long time but over time the app is getting worse, there are a lot more advertisements, and when I'm trying to edit my stories it sends me to the bottom of the draft when I'm editing the middle. It has also been taking out photos from my drafts by themselves leaving me to have to apply them all back every time i edit my story.

I love the app there is so much variety of stories. The only problem I've had was one time I couldn't pay my subscription so I turned off the auto renewal and about a week after my subscription ran out I had it again for a few days without paying and it confused me. But other than that it's a great app 10/10.

Honestly, it was good then it just got super annoying. Reading stories is fine, but when you write it closes or crashes or it doesn't even let you edit anything! You also don't fix any mistakes! This app is just going downhill and I might need to consider moving to a different writing app.

The app is great and all that stuff, the stories are good but it's sad that we have to pay for some of them but all together it's a good app. But I wish that we can send videos and pictures in the dms. Edit: add a feature where we can publish a story in one button, then I'll increase my rating. It's so annoying. If you try to publish a big book it takes forever.

Is any other writer having issues with scrambled chapters?! It's making it hard for new readers and those who reread to go in order when reading and leads to a lot of confusion! I love this app but this is annoying. When I rearrange the chapters, it won't save! Please for the love of everything, fix this bug!!! Edit; I'm now giving it a one star! Everything is getting worse! It's affecting my popular books at a rapid speed! I tried to fix one chapter and it messed up the rest!

Alot of the time the ads in the app are broken and I have to force close the app and go back in to get it to show me another ad and fix itself. As a writer on the platform I have experienced several minor issues and I was wondering if there is an email address we can send more detailed feedback to.

I like this app, but there's two super annoying problems. First, pages don't load all the way, or they are cut off when reading. The only way to fix it is to restart the app. Second, editing or writing is god awful. I don't know if it's my phone or the app, but every time I'm trying to write, it sends me to the bottom of the draft when I'm trying to edit the middle of the draft. Using italics/underlining/bold is a nightmare because it sometimes changes the entire draft instead of one word.

Wattpad is now getting worse. I can't update a book without getting kicked off, notifs run slow, loading takes forever, and even when I go to the quick updating story thing it just loads and loads forever. This app is beginning to get worse, and when there's a problem: it's ignored. I'm beginning to dislike it here and I've had it for two years.

I love Wattpad a lot. I've written lots of stories and have read so many amazing books on this app. My only complaint would be the amount of advertisements now. There never used to be ads and now when reading a story just as I am about to read the next chapter, boom 💥 an advertisement appears 🙄 the app is AMAZING 10/10 rating. It's just those darn ads that I have an issue with.

App is okay, too difficult to search. Reading is fine, general browsing is fine. But if you want to search for something, it's so difficult. I want to be able to muti-tag search, then filter only completed works, then sort by reads, or favorites, or update date. You can sort of do it here or there but not in one big filter search. The search function seems to only work with titles, and when browsing I can't just combine a bunch of filters to find what I want. Too difficult to search.

Depressing how the format changed so much, now it's nearly impossible to interact with people when the platform was made entirely for that, they also only push books that make them money, they messed up the library system, the app has been messed up so much but then when people come with an actual problem it gets ignored, I'd give zero stars if I could cause that's how bad it's gotten.

Really cool app! I love it, and the voting functionality. However, there is a small problem. Whenever I'm editing a story, I'll leave to save and the app will tell me, "There was a problem while saving your story." Or something like that. Then it will let me choose a version of the story to save, then it'll take me back to the editing page. It'll keep repeating the process over and over again, which is really annoying. It's been happening less and less now, but it's still a problem.

ive had this writing app for a very long time, so i cant say anything bad really. i love the app, but sometimes when i click a story that ive added to my reading list, it does nothing. it just sits there. and when i continue to click it, it never lets me on it. i love writing and ive never had a problem with the ads. overall, its a really great app. i highly suggest it.

Used to great, but now it's full of ads and membership pushing. Used to read for hours but now ads will play every few chapters that i can't escape from, and randomly crashing and freezing losing what i read (every few chapters or few minutes even, and it doesn't save my progress). Writers, start looking for a new place to write, because this place is getting bad and greedy by the minute.

I absolutely love this app, but my only complaint is when a writer says the story is complete it should be complete. It's very frustrating when it says completed and you get to the end only for them to say "to read the rest of the story go to this page/app and you can purchase my book". I don't know about anyone else, but to me that story is not completed. Let the reader know before hand so they can make that choice before wasting their time.

It's a very good overall app for all sorts of books. One issue I have is that books that I put in my reading list disappeared after a while. This makes it really difficult to find that one book I read a while back. Another is that every few months, all of my reading lists will disappear and I am unable to add to them. I can still read what's in the reading lists, but the only things I can add to is my reading lists and my library.

The pictures I put for my chapters keep disappearing and this is very upsetting. Also sometimes it will tell me I've reached the end of the story when I know I haven't. Also, when I go to edit my stories now it only lets me see one unless I click on edit another story which I don't like. It's off putting and effects my work. Also, recently, it's been changing the name of the chapters I publish to their original title and unpublishes them, it's annoying. Please fix this soon.

The app won't let me see my drafts! It's so irritating, it hasn't let me for months! Whenever I go to a story and click on a draft, it just exits out!!! I've tried contacting people that work at Wattpad, but they don't even know what's wrong. I have an Android, but I've updated the app, cleared cache, everything!! And it still won't let me see my drafts! It's never done this before until a few months ago, now it won't fix itself. I even tried the beta. It still just glitches and exits out! HELP!

i don't know what happened, i guess the app updated or something recently, but the formatting of my writing while i'm writing changes by itself. if i make a word or two italics or whatever, it changes the entire chapter, and it automatically changes everything i'm typing to be centered in the middle of the page instead of on the left like how i've set it to. it also gets really laggy whenever i write more than 1000 words. i love this app otherwise, but it's an annoyance to write anything anymore

Many times when I click to see more stories I added to one of my reading lists, it doesn't show anything at all. Sometimes when I want to add a story to a list, it doesn't show anything other than Library or Create a Reading List. To add on, books put into my reading lists get deleted. Also, when I click to view a comment and its replies, the comment is all whited out. Edit: Now, whenever I swipe to see the next chapter, it just tells me that I'm at the end of the story.

The older version of wattpad was way better than the so called "improvements" that the new update has. The library used to be where you could read all of the stories there offline but now its limited to two. You're constantly bombarded with messages to get the premium version. I could deal with the ads at first but now, after literally two pages of a book, boom, unskipable ads with the additonal "get premuim!" Used to be wonderful but now it's trash.

I really love using wattpad but recently I've run into a problem. No matter if I'm connected to wifi or using my phone data that app won't let me read a story unless it's in my offline reading list. It won't let me looked any other stories on the home page. I tried disconnect and reconnecting to my wifi, I tried Uninstalling the app as well. When I reinstalled the app it left me logged into my account and when I tried logging back in it wouldn't let me.

I absolutely ❤ the app. I ❤ how many stories there are. Especially All the different fanfic. It can be hard to find what i ❤ to read which is Gender Bender. Mainly ones where people their genders switched. Ive heard that it can be a bit hard to navigate for beginners. The one thing that kinda bugs me though is that i cant have a unlimited # of lists as i like to be organized with my stuff & i ❤ to re-read stuff & recommend stories to others occasionally so i like to make it easier to find them.
