Nowadays, Wattpad is making me sad.
A few days again, I somehow got premium without buying it. Thankfully it disappeared earlier today.
When I’m DMing someone, I can’t see what I’m typing.
Then everything shifts around like the notifications header, bottom buttons.
Everything is wrong. The proportions are off, the notifications are bugging out, and sometimes the writing goes wonky!

I love it
Wattpad has been the perfect app for me for ages!!!It relaxes me enough that i don’t want to stop reading even though if i tried reading a book, I would hate it.Wattpad is a GREAT APP..but I do have So annual concerns.Sometimes after I open the app,it sends me to the App Store for no reason...this has happened for the past three days and i ignore it for the most part but it makes me not want to get into the app because it gets annoying.Although that has been happening,I still love that app and it feels like a home where i can take any unwanted attention off of me and just be myself. (blushing,screaming at my phone,and crying because one of the stories is over!!!)😂😂
Freezing/slowing down 1/5
By Samantha Jacobs
If I’m on the app for more than 10 minutes, it starts to slow down so much that it has taken up to a minute to move to the next chapter. And it’s the app - not my internet. I’m certain about this. It also freezes at odd times and it’s exasperating to say the least. And it gets overloaded very easy.
Also, the ads that I have to watch and see make it worse. Yeah yeah if I don’t want to see ads then I need to pay a subscription - I don’t care. I’m not paying a subscription and you know what? I don’t think I deserve to have the app slow down and freeze and go crazy and freak out because I don’t want to pay a subscription to not see ads. Also, excepting any stories I add to the library, the app collects so much data and weight to it that it’s an issue. I’ve had to delete and redownload the app several times to offload the weight and make it work more smoothly. I also don’t appreciate the redirects to the App Store. It happens so often in a day and I have to close out the app in order for it to stop. It’s a nuisance that breaks my enjoyment of Wattpad.
Y’all seriously need to give this app a real going over. It’s heavy, it’s slow, it’s a nuisance. Y’all‘ve got some serious bugs and y’all need to streamline this app or something. I also don’t like how I can’t access the clubs through the app. My computer is out of order at the moment and I would actually like to participate in the community via the app.
one of my favorite apps 3/5
The only problem is with the writing. Specifically when I try to write my stories, every word I type is automatically bolded. Now, I have to continuously go back and unbold then before I post something. Please fix this.
FIX THE PROBLEM 1/5
CONSTANT LAGGING WHICH CAUSES IT TO CRASH CONSTANTLY. FIX IT PLEASE.
Frustrating:( but Good :) 5/5
I have had this app for over 5 years and I love it but recently i’m not enjoying it. Whenever I am reading a book my sound notification comes on and I know it’s not my phone cause this is the only app it does it on. Plus the ads are super annoying. When sliding to the next chapter I slide at the bottom of the screen and I do it fast so the ad thinks I clicked on it. Then it takes forever to exit out of the ad making everything very frustrating. Please fix this! I really love this app and it really unwinds me and makes me happy but it is doing the exact opposite recently!
Wattpad has given me the push that I needed to further my writing career. If it weren’t for wattpad I wouldn’t have my work out in the world. I love this app and it’s my favorite thing in the world❤️
I love the app but recently whenever I went on past a certain time of night, it just displays “muted” repeatedly. I contacted Apple and thought it was my phone, until I realized it only happened on Wattpad, which is a bummer so I deleted the app.
New Layout 3/5
I loved wattpad and i still continue to use the app very frequently . However , now that everyone is a premium member , there are a lot of weird things that started happening. I sometimes reread certain books that i’ve already read before, but with the new update, it seems as if i never even voted on the chapters but i know i did because i can see some of the comments i left on the book. that’s not that big of a deal , but it really bothered me. also, the app continues to freeze and close by itself and then refuse to open so i have to uninstall and download it again . Please fix this.
Love this app, but a lot of bugs 3/5
So this app if my favorite. But, when I'm reading, these ads randomly pop up and interrupt me, and I have to continuously press the done button. Also, it's starting to crash on me. I don't know if it has something to do with my iPod, but it's starting to annoy me.
I loved it before the updates 3/5
I loved this app before it was updated so heavily so that ads appear, and also ever 2 minutes or so my screen buffers like crazy trying to load an ad or something on Wattpad it’s been doing it more since the last update.
Gotta Love Wattpad!! 5/5
I read so many SasuSaku and SasuNaru(#GayButILoveIt) fanfics and I cannot put me phone down lol
It keeps on freezing
Bugs but I love it :3 4/5
I all honesty, I adore this app due to it’s sheer allowance for such a large amount of communities to come together and write what they please. The only reason for why I’m rating a 4 out of 5 stars is due to a little bug that I’ve been experiencing recently. For some odd reason, my app will freeze and become unresponsive until I refresh the app entirely. I’m only able to use it when I have no internet connection including cellular. Which then means I’m unable to read or discover new stories. Now I’m not sure if anyone else is experiencing this but I’d love to have some assistance in resolving this issue. Ty!
Wattpad review 5/5
This is a wonderful wonderful WONDERFUL app!! The people on here are very nice and friendly! There are many great stories that you can read, comment, vote, etc!! You can also write stories and make a profile! This app is amazing I now have 57 followers and 8 books so you can also follow people and many of the people follow you back and you can also mute, block, or write anything that a writer has written that is not " aloud" so you can report them I hope the wattpad community grows and can't wait to see y'all join us thanks bye!!
Add Split Screen Support 4/5
Would be nice if their was split screen support for iPad. Other than that, would also like a virtual reality or vrmmorpg genre tag. Everything else is perfect.
Best App Ever 5/5
Honestly, I don’t even have the words to describe this app. 😍 this app has helped me express my feelings and made me happy. I love writing stories and this app makes being an author so much easier and it helps to get immediate feedback from people all over the world. If I could rate this higher then 5, I would rate it as 11/5.
The new update 4/5
I don't like the new update on here
I luv this app so much. I couldn’t find or want any other book app. I luv how you can interact with the authors and find the fan fiction you want. Thank you to the people who created Wattpad. You guys are my heroes. Luv you all. 💙💙
I’ve lost almost everything! 2/5
I have lost every book in my library but six. I have lost books that I have been reading, and books that I really wanted to read. And I can’t remember the names of the books that I wanted to read. I’m highly upset right now.
By Crybaby Izzy 😛
I recently changed my username to something of my liking. I also changed my password because it was a password I use on several different accounts, and apparently the password for this account was different. So I did that and went onto my phone to log into my Wattpad. (The settings clarified if you change your username or password you will be assigned to log back in.) I retyped in exactly what I memorized and even checked on my computer, but my phone says the username or password is invalid. I checked my wifi and coincidentally it was one of the weakest services. I changed to a more stronger system and nothing seemed to change, it was consistent. Does anyone else have this problem?
Good -> bad 1/5
By No nickname87
I used to love Wattpad, but now I can never use it anymore because nothing loads right and my screen randomly freezes, leaving me to force quit the app. It’s quite frustrating and I hope that this can be fixed.
I love this app because it has so many stories to read in so many genres. Also, it works good and it loads pretty fast! Good stories and works well
Love this app 4/5
By LindsBinz 1234
I love this app and I go on it every day but I find that every time after you guys update a circle goes on the screen and try’s to tell me my phone has a virus. I don’t think it’s my phone because it only happens on this app. I know better then to click on anything that could “help my phone” but it’s bothersome and only happens after updates. Other then that I love the app!
So good! 5/5
By Samis m
Wattpad is so good, it has good quality and is fun to be on.
I Love the Updates 5/5
I love this app and I’ve been using it for almost three years now, but I’d have to say my favorite thing of the app is how the updates are all stories 😂😂. I was a bit sad to discover some that weren’t stories because I look forward to them so much, but I’m happy they’re back! Can I mention how I love the main character (whom I think is called Notes? After the notes app in phones) and the Update together? They’re so cute, and I hope this idea of a mini-story for every update continues.
Issues that i have with Wattpad 5/5
I give it a five bc i love this app but if i just touch my screen while reading a book it moves my spot all the way to the top of the page ..
All of the book I’ve been reading are now gone 1/5
By I need more food!
All the book I saved in my library just magically disappeared and some of my stories are also delete as well.I don’t know if that’s a glitch or just acting kinda funny but it won’t save the book I’m trying to save in my library.
I LOVE THIS APP 5/5
this app relaxes me whenever I’m stressed. If I don’t want to read an actual book I always come to wattpad. I love how you can read other people’s stories and vote on them too!, especially the fanfics, there my FAV!! Ahh I swear I’m so obsessed with this app😍😂
get it together 3/5
By 🤷🏽♀️ oh my god
It's takes forever for the loading to get over with after logging out of you account, it also randomly freezes or crashes. Nobody wants to write a story and come back after the app has decided to slow down or unexpectedly crash, not having their stuff saved. Wattpad has been doing this for the longest, on my iPhone. When I'm on the app, it becomes slow and starts freezing which means I have to uninstall the app completely only to get the same problem a couple days later. It's very annoying, but overall the app is GREAT! Just please fix this problem, it's ridiculous. I know it's not my phone because multiple people have complained about this issue! So many " bug fixes " yet, there's little to no changes.
By Dyslexics Annymnomous
I used to love this app but the “new” non-premium has ruined it. I’m constantly getting ads between chapters. And I’m sorry but the app just isn’t as good as it use to be.
I love wattpad it’s lit best fanfic books you will ever find 🙌😊💗💗💗💗
Minor bugs 5/5
Just some minor things but one that’s a little annoying. While reading a story the volume will go down by itself.
Forget everything. 5/5
I was very angered at the updates, but whenever I read how you showed what the new updates had in story form, I couldn't help but break out into a smile. You're hilarious. Somewhat, at least.
I just randomly got premium on my Wattpad account and have no idea how to remove it. I tried looking through my Apple subscriptions but it was not there.
Love it 5/5
I loving it cause their are so many good writes on here and plus their story's are so good u should definitely get it
By Dj gabbie13
The update is ok but I’ve found that, whoever I’m scrolling up past my following list to my works, it freezes in place and also whenever I visit my profile, I don’t know what’s wrong but it’s super annoying.
The description 5/5
I love how the description sounds like I would be reading it from a book on the app 😂 I was confused untill I understood what was going on and I couldn't stop smiling. Anyway I love the app it's amazing , a lot of original content including a lot of smut ;) anyway I have no complains keep doing what you're doing :)
By Clare Grazer
WATTPAD IS LIFE SO GET THIS IF YOU NEED A LIFE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Story updates are back 👌🏽
God, teal and orange is the worst you could do to this app, other than the fact that you don’t have a way to block people.
Regardless of the improvements... 3/5
By I rock u do 2
The ads are back again. Those darn ads take me to the App Store a bajillion times a day, thus wasting my data and my battery. It'd be great if you could just focus on squashing those bugs for a while?
Update: 3 MONTHS LATER
Guys. Guys. I don't know what you think improvement means, but you haven't changed much. I still get sent to the App Store, and get this: it got worse. I get sent to scam sites (p.s. guys don't click anything on those sites, just close them out) saying my iPhone has a virus. It's creepy and disgusting. Maybe instead of pushing us to spend money on premium to stop the ads, you could actually make it so the ads are acting appropriately? None of my wattpad friends have bought premium because of that reason. Why spend money to stop these ads? Even if they're annoying? Ugh. Not good. I loved the app but it's gone downhill now.
Why is it blue everywhere? 5/5
I love this app so much! They have so many book genres. There is a book for everyone’s liking. I’m currently working on two books of my own and other Wattpad users have been so helpful in terms of what I should do to better my writing and helping me when I’m in writers block. Over all, most of the users on Wattpad are very friendly and it’s just a great environment. My only problem is that a that app layout colors changed. The app layout use to be orange and white with little hints of blue here and there but now it’s blue everywhere. I know it’s not that big of a deal it’s just the other way was better considering the app logo it’s self is orange and white. Other than that I have no problems and definitely would recommend Wattpad to a friend if all of my friends weren’t already using it. 🧡
By Rory Rain
I’ve used this app for five years and loved it. However, after upgrading to my iPhone 7 Plus the app has started freezing.
I can’t get it to reload without closing and opening it several times. It’s quite stressing as I love the app and it works well on my laptop. I just can’t get it to work. I’ve only had this phone for two months and all of my other apps work well.
I’d like to see if there is a way the app will work again. Thanks
Love it 5/5
I love it 100% but there needs to be a fix on the factor that it’s a energy drainer
STOP BLOCKING ME I’M NOT YOUR EX 2/5
Hiya, I have been a wattpad user since 2010. That is a long time to take and love the app more and more. Sadly, I must say things have changed recently. I can’t enter the app with internet without kicking me out after clicking 2 times. Because of this I can’t add new stories, can’t read the ones I have in peace unless I am in airplane mode and pretty much can’t do anything. I have tried so many times to use it online but I feel like if I get kicked out of the app one more time I might brake my phone.
Please fix this, I am dying with out my stories.
By Katy star 61
HAHAHAHA UPDATE CAPTIONS ARE HILARIOUS I LOVE YOU WATTPAD
i’ve been using wattpad for 2 years now and had a few small problems here and then, but weren’t a big deal for me. i really like this app and all but there’s something that hasn’t been fixed yet which are related to the italics and bold. i’m a bit frustrated because it’s really hard to write stories now. i’ve even tried their solution (changing the font and writing), but it still hasn’t fixed the problem. if you could please fix this problem, i’d be happy to give this app five stars.
