Broken app and Number of Ads decreases 1/5
The '+' button next to the number of coins stopped working after the update and I have to go to Free Coins or Coin Shop to navigate to Free coins to watch ads.
Also the number of ads I can watch has considerably decreased or that part of the app has a nasty bug. Before, I could easily earn 450 coins in a day through ads but now I barely make it to 20 or 30 coins a day (2-3 ads) before I see the no new videos option. Because I consistently see no videos available every day and luckily get a video or two to watch by refreshing constantly.
Yesterday I was only able to watch two ads and I got the no videos option immediately. When I'd refresh the page I'd see a video available but if I selected it, it would suddenly say no videos available again. I thought I'd come back later to check.
So I kept coming back after a few hours but the same thing kept happening throughout the day. And when I checked the day after I still see the no videos option. Argh, this has been so frustrating that I had to give a review.
Please fix this app developers. Don't know what you did but you broke the part of the app for watching videos and I'm on the brink of leaving this app for good now.
Great Comics but... 3/5
This app has hundreds, possibly thousands of new and interesting comics and novels to read. However, the app makes it so that you have to either purchase coins or watch videos in order to read. If the video watching feature was more consistent and awarded slightly more coins, I would be giving this app 5/5. It's just unfortunate that can take ten minutes just to read one episode. Hopefully they will do some things in the future to make it slightly easier to earn coins.
Thank u!! 5/5
I'm so happy for this update, thank u for adding ipad support, I really need it since I use my ipad to read books and comics. THANK U SO MUCH
Interesting and Fun App 4/5
I really love the comics on this app, and I like how you can get free coins. The only thing I don't like is that you can get maybe 30 or 40 something coins for ads in the beginning, but after watching a few, it goes down to 10 coins per ad. This is really an inconvenience since to get a lot of coins you would need to watch a TON of ads especially since most chapters cost anywhere in the 200's or the 300's. I hope this is something they change in the future.
I want to write my book from my phone... 5/5
By Awkward taco kat
This app is great, and I love reading on here, comics and regular books! But I want to write my book from my phone! I don't always have my computer, so I can't always upload from there... it's a little disappointing that it's not on there yet... please consider that addition to the mobile app!
They have some really great titles that you can't find anywhere else. It makes me look forward to each update for them. Be careful though, because I spent over $100 on coins before I even realized. You can also get I think 200 coins by watching an ad, but I'm just too impatient for that.
Coins For Ads 5/5
Don't get me wrong, I love the fact that you guys have a coins for ads feature, since most apps for streaming comics don't, but this new update is driving me off a cliff. Before, I'd get around 40 coins per ad most of the time. Now, I'd get 40 coins for a few ads everyday or so whilst the rest of the ads are 30 seconds long, only offering 10 coins. 100 coins would be 5 minutes of watching ads, which is not much of a big deal. However, I'm aiming for those "unlock all chapters discount" and the one I'm currently doing is 17k coins. Correct me if I'm wrong but, 17k coins divided by 10 coins(one ad) is 1,700 ads I'll need to watch. Let's simplify this more. 17,000 ads multiplied by 30 seconds(one ad) is 51k seconds. 51k seconds divided by 60 seconds is 850 minutes. 850 minutes divided by 60 minutes is a bit more than 14 hours. Sorry Tapas, but watching ads in exchange for 40 coins before was already enough struggle, and I don't think it's worth it to watch ads for 14 hours. Again, correct me if I'm wrong, but don't you guys also get paid from us watching the ads? Most of the people I know who use Tapas barely even read comics that costs coins to unlock a chapter because of the coins per ad. If you guys would please increase the coins per ads or maybe add a feature where if someone watches blank ads, the amount of coins they get per ad increases, then if they don't watch ads for blank minutes, the coins per ad resets back to 10 or something.
I love it 5/5
A friend happen to tell me about Tapas and as soon as I started reading, and it was love. Although I had to delete it because it took up a lot of storage on my device, I ecstatic to be downloading it again.
Coins are too much 4/5
EDIT: There's only 2-3 novels I'm interested in tapas, otherwise I'd uninstall. Everything else isn't worth the coins, because NOTHING is free anymore
Edit 2: I appreciate that Tapas took the time to respond to my review, and the reasoning is fair.
Great source of comics and web serials that I can read whileI have some spare time.
No more keys?!?!? 3/5
I love tapas in general but the reason I gave it 3 stars is because I hate that we can't buy keys anymore and have to use coins directly. I can only buy one chapter at a time with coins instead of buying them in bulk. It's cheaper to buy chapters in bulk and with buying them with coins is more expensive. It's so annoying. If they're completely getting rid of keys we should still be allowed to buy chapters in bulk (so it'll be cheaper) and not just singles. What I do like is that we can download chapter to watch offline.
So far the experience has been fun I'm still learning about the app. It helps creator that aren't well known. And if you are here to read comics it's filled so if you are bored this apps got you covered! Also Unfamiliar is so fascinating read it !!
Offline reading 5/5
New offline reading / downloads is just what I needed for my daily commute on the train
A great app to connect comics 4/5
I love this app, the hi is very simple and easy to use, and the feeling of tipping and supporting creators feel addicting and oddly fun. However, I wish I could change the order the comics are in on the bookmarks page, as well as have the comment sections be fixed. The comment section shows comments that have been posted recently, instead of the most popular ones. This way, I have to scroll all the way up to view them. If I could reorganize it to make it go either way I'd be fine.
One of the best webcomic sites 5/5
While it isn't free like some other sites, the library and variety is absolutely massive, and the ability to support creators of comics you love without paying a dime using Tapas' tipping system really feels good. Unlocking comics without paying money outright takes some time, but you can get free "Tapas Coins" by just referring friends or watching a few ads. If you want quality, Tapas is the place.
Awesome app! Almost perfect... 5/5
The app is great overall. The comics, tipping service, and overall very active community. Stands out from many other comic apps, I just wish there was a "download" option so that I can read the saved comics on the go. I don't have any internet so I won't be reading any comics until I get home or find a wifi spot. The app is great though! Just wanted to give some suggestions for future updates.
almost perfect! 4/5
By Super Doggie101
There's been a bug where some newly updated comics don't show an indicator that they're new. it almost seems like someone else is reading them before i do. but other than that, i love the app.
Pretty Good But Please Fix Bonus Coins 4/5
The layout of the app is very nice and easy to navigate. I've never had an issue with finding anything or reading any of the comics. My only complaint is that I will get messages saying that I have been given bonus coins but I'm unable to claim or use them. If this could be fixed that would be fantastic. Otherwise, the app is great
This is a great app honestly one of my favorites
Sometimes Glitchy but Great App 5/5
Pretty smooth app. The navigation is really easy.
The website is great and so is the app
ADS WHY 3/5
It was all good until I had to watch the ads again. U might even have to watch 20 ads for 1 episode of anything. The worst is that sometimes ads run out so u can't even get coins unless u buy them. And since I'm saving money for future stuff, I can't buy keys!!!
Nice but not Creator Friendly 2/5
I supposed it's mainly for reading, but as a creator myself, I hope it's enable me to upload or even see my stats on comics. I can make a comic through my ipad app, and I can upload it through the safari. But even that is not creator friendly.
Not bad but I have no money 3/5
By :| ha
The app is cool and there are some good comics on, but I don't like that I have to wait or pay to read comics. I don't mind ads, but the key thing is kind of dumb. There are apps like webtoons that are completely free.
It's good but.. 4/5
By I'm human enough
I wish there were more ways of getting coins and keys than just buying them and watching ads for 10 coins each.
Great app and you could get bonus coins which is helpful
I like it 4/5
By Large Tortise
I like it. It's simple and easy to use. Plus we don't have to pay to read. The only problem I have is when I search. I think that if the app had more of a category it would benefit a lot more. I find it hard to find what I'm looking for. Example: I am looking for a slice of life but a BL. I have to look through all the other slice of life's as well. If it were more organized I would like it way more.
By lisa manoban
I really wished that they got rid of the coins now I can't enjoy thisapp 😞
Amazing App 5/5
This app is the perfect app to read comics FREE! You can get keys for free or for coins, which don't cost much. So many amazing comics are on here and you'll instantly get addicted.
Forgot password 3/5
It's great and all but I can't reset my password. The link just brings me back to the log in page
Not a fan of the keys 1/5
By Samuel Orina
It's a little annoying to have to watch ads in order to get some free coins but other than that it's a good app.
I literally spend hours reading all these unique comics. There is so many books that you can never get bored. I personally love webcomics but it was always hard for me to find some I liked online, BUT THIS APP HAS SO MANY GREAT ONES. And each comic is constantly updating. I seriously am obsessed with this app.
What happened to my keys? 2/5
By TS Forever Strong
I just got the app because one of the authors' stories showed up on my newsfeed. Within half an hour, I got extra coins in addition to the 200 I started off with. So I bought five keys and should have had a total of six. I was reading another story from a different author than the one that convinced me to get the app. When I went on to read a chapter from one of the stories/series made, it said that I needed keys. They disappeared somehow. And this was within seconds after getting the keys. That needs to be fixed. I should be able to use those keys for any author I want.
So slow 1/5
Takes forever to load pages and the scrolling is wonky it slips and slides. Also I HAD to download the app cause when I tried using it online it kept making me log in every time I tried reading a comic with mature content. Once I logged in it would send me to the homepage, where I had to manually look for the comic, only to be told to log in again. Basically trying to read a comic here is a whole ordeal. I got so frustrated and it really shouldn't be that hard. I would give it 0 stars if I could.
Love love love 5/5
I really love this app, even if you have to pay for coins. I mean, there are no ads and it's not that bad to pay a dollar for some coins. I really love this app and I really love the authors. Seriously the best and easiest way for me to read some rad comics from new not super well known creators that I can share with friends. Seriously I've never had an issue, the app works phenomenally and again, it's not that bad to pay for some coins and not every really good comic or story needs to be paid for so that's pretty awesome. 10/10 would recommend. ❤️❤️❤️
Buy coins to unlock a comic? Each episode? No way. No thanks. 1 star.
For better or worse? 3/5
I haven't used the app since it was completely free but coming back to these coins and keys that you have to pay for? I like the idea of supporting the creators you love but I liked this app because I could just turn it on and look at funny or interesting comics easily and all free of charge. Now the app barely seems to work with being unable to add comics and stories to my library for unknown reasons. Also when I tap the "get keys" button. It tells me I don't need anymore keys when I have none. So it basically tells me everything is locked and I don't need to unlock them. Maybe I need coins for that but I don't know. The app was very unclear in explaining any of these changes
The Best 5/5
This is one of my favorite webtoon and book apps. Keep the good work guys.
White screen 5/5
It worked great the first time I used it. I tried using it again and it would not work so I deleted/ re downloaded and looked like it would work. When I signed in with my gmail it just got stuck on the loading spinner and if I closed the app and started again, it would just give me a white screen. Not sure what to do. Really hope it works again. Love the little comics on here.
Edit- I deleted/restarted my phone/and re downloaded. Works fine now.
Have to pay to read lame. Just go to WEBTOON 1/5
I like to not pay for stuff
I liked it way better back in the day when you didn't need to use coins and it was just comics, but still love the app
Is it possible to make a feature to post your own comics and novels? 4/5
I love this app and the website. But I wish their was a way to post from your mobile device. If it's not possible, I fully understand. But if it is, please make it happen!
This is so cool! 5/5
