Terrible I hate it 1/5
By emma calo
I spent money on the premium I was scammend the ad pops up your like oooooo nice but really it’s bad don’t get it you’ve beefed warned
BAD BAD BAD 1/5
You have no access to anything like the phone calls and photos unless you pay this super high cost! And once you open the app, you’re forced to read this story, and within the first 10 SECONDS it try’s to make you buy this expensive premium package and continues to do so!!!! And it makes you wait 30 MINUTES TO USE THE APP UNLESS YOU BUY PREMIUM??? what??????? that makes no sense.
I deleted it within 30 seconds... 1/5
Okay so I was in Snapchat and I saw a preview of a story featured in this app. So I decided to download the app to finish the story. When I opened the app, it didn’t even let me pick a story. It took me to some random story. So I thought if I clicked through it, I would be able to see other ones. So I started clicking and a voice call popped up and I gotta admit, I was impressed. I was excited to see it but when I pushed accept, it told me I had to pay for premium (7.99 a month). I was pretty annoyed so I just deleted the app without reading the rest.
Premium Members Club Permission 1/5
By Picks shun 123
Once you get the app, you are required to read half of an episode of the first story.
Then, if you wish to continue you NEED to buy the membership. Which is $8. That is quite expensive if I say so. I’m deleting this app. Horrible!
WORST APP EVER 1/5
By Bob the Bonana
Ok, so I use Wattpad a lot, I love it. I see an ad on wattpad for Tap, and I thought, “why not?” But when I got the app, it MADE me tap through a story. Then, before the story was over, I kept getting an ad that said I needed to upgrade (and PAY) for more stories, so I couldn’t even finish this one. So hey everyone who’s reading the reviews before you get the app, IF YOU AREN’T WILLING TO PAY $8 A MONTH FOR 500+ STORIES, VIDEOS, AND PICTURES, THEN DO NOT GET THIS APP. If I could, I would rate this app -3 stars because that’s how much I am annoyed, disappointed, and angry with it.
Gold digger 1/5
It wouldn’t let me into the app unless I also signed up for premium- what the heck???
I’m livid. 1/5
I love Wattpad but I’ve never had an app make me so angry I can’t exit the stories that it’s forcing me to read so wth am I supposed to do not worth it. I mean I really love Wattpad but this is..👎🏼
Wattpad but costs money 1/5
Okay, let me just say the concept is cool, but why download it in the first place? You could write the same type and read the same of stories on wattpad for FREE and there's no wait time, I mean honestly just put it into a texting format for nothing. Why waste money?! Such a disappointment.
T r a s h
I can’t change stories! 1/5
It shows on the little preview thing here that you can change stories! But I’m forced to watch whatever you guys provide, and if I press x and open the app again I’m forced to re-read what I had already read!
I’m going to delete. You guys false advertised
I hate it so much! 1/5
This app is terrible. It deserves -100000 stars. Wish I could rate it that. I can only read one story which is the stupid Julie and Steve one. Now I can't buy member ship because right after I click the membership button it pops up again. I need keep closing the application when I push it because I can not get out of the panel. Another reason I hate it is I can't even continue the story about that girl who barfed a bird. Please remove the member ship thing because until you do I am permently keeping it deleted.
Do I need to explain? 2/5
This app looked really cool, and I post a lot of wattpad, so I wanted to get it. Then I get in, it sends me to a cliché story. The story isn't good, and I am FORCED to read. It asked me for a member ship in a minute of being on the app. I am a teenager, I can't just buy things like that. I was hoping it would just be advertising like wattpad, but no. You can't even look at the images or facetimes. Not worth it 😕
You can’t do anything without buying premium
I can’t pick my own story 1/5
By A Man the manly man
This is honestly terrible
By Rupert Grant
I can see many storys that i actually like this app is great
I absolutely love Wattpad, so when I saw this, I thought, ‘Hey, I’ll give it a shot.’ It gave me my free trial, I wasn’t planning to keep it, because then I would have to pay money. I thought that it would notify me of at least not let me use the app anymore after my trial, and stopped using it. I didn’t even know the app had kept charging me until my dad told me that I owed him around 50 something dollars for some app. I then went to notifications to manage my subscription like it says I can do. Well, it didn’t say anything about a subscription, so now I’m paying 8-10 dollars a month for something I don’t use. If you don’t want to pay for it, don’t get it.
HONESTLY TERRIBLE 1/5
By Stephaniesia Garcia
This is a completely honest review. I would give this app no stars if I could. WATTPAD is one of my favorite apps and I love reading on there, but this app is honestly just a disappointment. First off, when you enter the app it MAKES YOU tap through a weird story about some killer little girl. I'm sorry but that's not why I downloaded the app! I wanted to read something else, but I guess I have to read what they want me to. No problem. So I clicked through it and then a video call came. I was like that's pretty darn cool, but when I tried to accept, The app said I needed to buy premium. ADVERTISING and I wasn't even 5 minutes into the app. ALSO, the prices are insane! I'm sorry but money doesn't grow on trees and some features like pictures should at least be free. I understand the need for funding but please offer some free so i can see if I like it before blowing $8 a month. I don't want to put in credit card info for my FREE trial. So I obviously declined and kept tapping. Then it told me that I needed to wait like 30 mins to continue reading this story that I didn't want to read in the first place. The opening story should only be a tutorial and you should be able to click out of it!! I've only had this app for a bit and ALREADY frustrated but I'm going to keep trying because one of my favorite Wattpad writers is writing on TAP. Unless you are okay to pay for premium, don't download this app.
Stupid & a scam 1/5
Saw this in a snapchat ad, and it's garbage. 18 It's definitely not worth $8 a month 2 It's just another app that relies off of people that'll start the free trial and forget to cancel it in time and 3 if you want FREE story telling just go on YouTube, you can find a bunch, you can probably even find someone reacting to these if you're really into this trash but you do you
Very Disappointed 1/5
I M P O S S I B L E to control and once you choose a story, there’s no way out. No way am I ever going to download this app ever again. I love Wattpad, but this is, in my opinion, terrible.
So good 5/5
By Drake Singleton
It’s so good
Everything is good till it asks for membership 1/5
The stories and everything are interesting and amazing but what annoys me the most is that whenever there is an extra acticing like opening an notifications or viewing a video of photo or even choosing an option it asks for MEMBERSHIP?!!! ASKING FOR MEMBERSHIP IS GOOD TILL IT REACHES A POINT BUT EVERYTIME??? SRSLY IT GETS SO ANNOYING! At least put something like you can unlock it by watching an add or something. I get it you need to make money but still it get so annoying.
you have to pay a lot of money for this app to be somewhat decent. if you don't pay then this app is trash.
By Pansy parkins
So I’ve downloaded this app multiple times and each time I am dissatisfied with it I understand the waiting for taps but this time when a attempted this one I had no option in the story I chose. I was asked to pay as soon at I got on! That’s eff up I’m sorry. But apps should be free to a point I use choices and episode and you get to choose your story and get new passes every few hours, and you can pay for a quicker pass refill and that’s reasonable in my opinion but having access to parts of the app (that causes you to go forward) is terrible. If I was you I would make this better in a few ways
1. Let me choose my story
2. If you have membership don’t make pics calls and stuff part of it let it be unlimited taps because not doing that is doing more harm then good.
3. Let me chose my own story!!!!!!😡😡
The app is great but... 4/5
I was reading a story and was really interesting in it when the app Crashed, and started at the beginning with the opening story. Other than that though the app is great. It has very suspenseful stories that really makes you feel like you are there.
Slightly Disappointed 3/5
I am an avid wattpad user and I absolutely adore the app. I had been really hyped for the Tap app, but when I got it... well, it wasn’t as great as I thought it would be.
First off, I’m not paying for extra features, so I do not get to see images, listen to videos, or choose alternate endings. However, because I’m not paying, I. Can’t. Choose.
Once you’re in a story, there is no home button. That was something I immediately noticed.
When it really became a problem was when I was in a story and had to choose between two options. When I clicked either one of them, a banner advertising premium popped up, saying I couldn’t choose unless I got it.
I tried to get out to the main menu, but nothing worked.
The only way to get out of a story is to complete it, so if you don’t like the story or you don’t have Premium, sorry. There’s no way out.
I had to redownload the app to my phone.
I’d like to see a feature where we can watch ads to unlock more taps, or stories, or see images. I understand the creators need to make money, but if there are advertisements, the people behind them have to pay for them to be on the app and the creators will be making money.
Premium would be cheaper but still better as you wouldn’t have to watch an ad for everything. Perhaps there could be a limit to ads each hour/day?
Also, please. Make a home button! (Or at least notify us if it is an alternate ending story so we won’t make the mistake of clicking on it).
It used to be free 2/5
By romeo the wylddchyld
I can’t do anything without money know
THIS IS TRASH!!!!!!!!!DO NOT GET 1/5
All the good stuff you have to get premium and I mean literally EVERYTHING don’t waste ur storage
Tap-Is it Good? 5/5
This is a great app!! It’s better than Hooked!! Hooked doesn’t even let you write your own stories anymore. With Tap we’re free to share our creativity with the world.
They are trying to take your money 1/5
By Blah bleh 619 to 904
I never subscribed to the app and they are trying to charge me!
Why tho 1/5
By That Platypus
There is no menu button, so it doesn't allow you to choose any of the stories you read. I just found this app by an ad, and I got the app just to read the story that was advertised, not some random one.
everything’s great except paying for premium 😐. it’s just reading. wth.
By An OUAT Fan
I love wattpad. When I saw this app I immediately downloaded it because I thought it’d be interesting to read stories in text form. But having to wait to read the rest of a story ,that wasn’t even that good, wasted 20 minutes of my life. Having to pay for the premium feature probably wouldn’t have improved the app at all. Thank you for a big disappointment (to say the least).
I like chicken 5/5
I like chicken
Amazing app... the scary genre is very scary.
Screwed Over 1/5
This app has made me feel totally screwed over.
1.) they only give you a limited amount of time to read a certain story.
2.) you can't see pics, videos, or calls unless you pay a monthly or weekly fee.
3.) the update has me totally confused because I can't figure out how to do anything. I can't write my own stories anymore and I can't choose which story I listen to because it chooses for me.
DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME AND BUY THIS APP! IT'S WAY TOO COMPLICATED AND HARD TO WORK! LOVE THE STORIES BUT HATE THE APP! IF YOU VALUE YOUR LIFE DON'T WASTE A FEW MINUTES OF YOUR TIME BUYING A SCREW-OVER!
Every time I come across apps like this I'm like wow it's really cool I'll download it. After I download it I start to play and then all of a sudden u come up to like the pictures and then you have to subscribe and like can't we just have an app like this without having to subscribe bc I don't want pay 7.99 for an app like I'll pass... it's just getting annoying that I can't read the story for what it is without paying money
Gold digger 1/5
Hate that I can’t view pictures unless I have premium, and how it’s already asking for money when I just got it 5 mins ago. You can only do so much with our buying and don’t get the whole sorry without pictures
What happened 4/5
So I don’t know if This is something that can easily be resolved but I can’t get past the first story to write my own or find more. I’m confused
The Best Chat Stories App 💕 5/5
So, I have an annual subscription (I get to see the picture/video messages within the story, don’t have a wait time, unlimited taps, and get access to all stories on the app, etc) and I love it.
The featured stories are great, Tap Originals is an extremely unique series that before Tap, no other chat stories app was doing, even without a subscription the wait time is like 20 minutes vs Hooked’s 35.
Something else great about Tap: you can create your own account, have a library for stories you’re in the process of reading, and YOU CAN MAKE YOUR OWN CHAT STORIES FOR FREE! With all the other chat stories out there, Tap is the only one I’m aware of that lets you make your own stories (Hooked removed their story writing tool this year) and that alone makes it a winner for me.
Everyone loves to complain about the wait time and having to pay for unlimited taps, etc. but you also have to understand what all goes into making an app. Tap has to make money somehow. Not everything can be free.
My rating: 5/5 ⭐️
I feel like I was scammed 1/5
By The book worm🤓
So an ad pops up on my phone for this app. Based off of the advertisement I was like ooo this looks so good I wanna get this and it’s made by the creators of wattpad. I have two of the apps so why the heck not. You start the story and realize that in order for you to enjoy it at all and get important parts of it you have to pay. I just downloaded the app and you’re already trying to get my money. I feel like I was scammed There was false advertising. I’m all about supporting ok. I have read a lot of published wattpad authors books. I refused to pay to read text messages or look at a picture. Im just going to go re-read my own text messages and look at my own pics for free.
-Sincerely, a disappointed book worm
I can’t even write a story without getting a subscription, and I’m not wasting money just to have access to everything else. I can’t write any stories whatsoever because nobody has a write a story tab when you open the app. This app just gives you an annoying story that is non-stop. If you are a writer, read these. But, you will not be able to write a tap story because of this
Stupid app ever 1/5
Fist off if you don’t want to read something and accidentally touch it you still have to continue to read it. You can’t see the pics at all unless you pay a lot of money that’s not worth it I’m done this this app.
Just no 1/5
By Q. Akasha
I love Wattpad. I read stories from there all the time for free. Whatever this is, does not reflect the wattpad I know. Immediately after I open the app it plays a text thread. I read it because I figure that's how it welcomes new readers. First time, free thread, show you how it works. Going through the story I notice it won't let me see the photos and asks me to become a member. I quickly deny. I get to the turning point of the story and it brings me to a page where I buy the membership. It says buy the membership or wait 20min to read again. There isn't even a menu to see what genre I'm reading. So every 20min I'm eligible to read whatever story you deem fit. No. That's not cool. It be different if I had a choice in what I can read but just some random story isn't cool. I'm disappointed
Sticking to normal wattpad 2/5
Ive had this app for maybe 15 min? And honestly i hate it. I couldn't even look at the pictures or video call on the intro story, how do you expect anyone to be interested in paying monthly when you can't even see what they're gonna look at. And some people don't have money for that, so like, ads would be nice, like ik a 30 second ad is annoying, but it would help people that don't want to waste money
Not in a million years. 1/5
By Marc el Dik
I first got this app a couple months back. It still offered me premium, but now I cannot even exit the “HIDE” story without completing it without premium. This is nuts, I cannot find a way to exit “HIDE” without finishing it or paying. What has this app become to?
🤦🏻♂️ really... 1/5
Really watpadd what were you thinking you greedy dirt bags, the subscription and opening story, like really, that was a stupid things to do
This is a honest review. It explains my experience with the app and my take on it.
First let me say I just downloaded this app, and immediately deleted it, so this review may be non-credible. Upon downloading there is a text story waiting for you, the story is pretty long but I tapped through. After the initial story ends the app immediately wants you to get a free trial (and we all know w/ a free trial you have to put in your credit card info) or wait 19 minutes. I would rather not go through all of that just to read a text story, I have a kindle, Wattpad and a library on my block, so I think I'm good.
This app is frustrating because you have to pay almost ten dollars a month to see images, videos, etc. and if you choose not to be a member you begin with only one story and a timer comes up saying you have to wait a certain amount of time to keep playing unless you pay. Disappointing
Waist of time 1/5
This is the worst app to spend time with like really? 10$ to watch a 5 second video or see a picture like come on... now that’s just as cheap as Mr. Krabs ....
I’m a newbie so far 5/5
OMG SO FAR THIS is THE BEST!! I LOVEESEE LOVE HOW u can make ur own stories! IM OBSSESSED WITH FANFICCCC Best app ever!! Unlike other apps
