Freezing & Crashing 1/5
So Wattpad is still freezing again then crashes. I am so sick of the freezing and crashing now with these past two updates. My phone is up to date and I don’t know why it keeps doing this. Wattpad needs to fix these bugs with iOS devices. I love reading but the bugs are ridiculous. Fix ASAP.
Bug not fixed 2/5
Whatever bug you fixed is not the one causing problems. The app has been crashing and freezing a lot more recently and I’m getting tired of having to force shut the app down and it’s still not working. If this is going to continue im going to delete the app as a whole. And the amount of ads on here is becoming ridiculous. I love this app I’ve been with this app for a long time and it saddens me that whatever bug this is isn’t being fixed. This app isn’t as great as it once was. This app use to be a app where all types of writers can share their story for free and readers to read without the worries of ads getting in the way one after the other. I’m severely disappointed with this app now. I do hope it will get fixed.
Please fix the BUGS 2/5
Lately the app just freezes by even just scrolling down the chapter or in picking up a book and it just shuts down. Not even a minute into logging into the app and it’s already frozen and not working. I LOVE this app but the bugs are just killing it. Please fix it so that every user can enjoy their read. PLEASE PLEASE
I’m dissapoined WattPad😑 1/5
It doesn’t work on apple devices... it always freezes and then yo have to constantly keep restarting the app atleast 5 time to read just one chapter (nit really a short or long one)🦖
Amazing app 5/5
Have had wattpad for maybe 9 months now, this app is so addictive that I can't sleep well at night cause I'm to focused on writing or reading. I've made 2 of my friends download the app and they love it!!! It's amazing how many people you can interact with in a certain app I really love wattpad and I'm gonna keep this for years on out!!!
Bugs and freezing 1/5
Screen freezes every time I go in. I reported it but they don’t care. I have not been able to read for two weeks now.
Awesome with a few bugs 4/5
I would have given this app a five because it’s just that amazing, but recently I’ve been having issues with the latest update. I can’t be on it for more than thirty seconds before it freezes and I have to close out of the app. Because of this, I can’t read or update any of my stories. I love the app, it hasn’t done me wrong in the past, but for some reason it’s doing it now. 4/5 for sure.
RANDOM NOISES!!! 4/5
Whenever I’m on Wattpad, I keep getting these random jump-scare sounds!!! Like.. a loud noise starts busting my eardrums through my headphones like a siren or an alert and interrupts me from reading! It is annoying and it frightens me every time! There is no virus or anything on my phone, but it only happens whenever I’m on Wattpad! I think it’s a bug from an ad or something!!! PLEASE FIX!
My Wattpad will open then as soon as i begin to read the screen freezes, but once the app is closed again, my phone is fine. Please fix other than this i really enjoy your app!!
finally writing a review 4/5
had this app for a while and have read hundreds of books since. great for spending boring days away, as long as you pick a good story. ITS JUST SUPER HECKING SLOW. @ wattpad team, please fix the lag and crashes!!
NOT WORKING 3/5
Every single time I try to go on your app, if freezes. PLEASE FIX THIS!!
I Love You, But You Make Me Sad! 2/5
By La, la de da de da
I don’t remember what year I wrote the original review below; I want to say 2014, but I’m not certain. Either way, it has been a long time now since this review was written, and still no change. Why wattpad? Why have you not fixed your freezing/crashing issue for us loyal members who happen to use an Apple product? So many have complained yet you continue to ignore our pleas. Can the issue not be fixed? Or do you care more about being aesthetically pleasing for the users who don’t have our same issues? Please, I beg of you, fix this!!!
Original Review: I love this website. I've been a member for so long I don't even remember when I joined. It was my early teen years I believe... could have been earlier. Doesn't matter. It's been a long time.
So far, my only complaint about this website are the apps for Apple products. It has been almost three years since they have worked correctly, and the developers of Wattpad have said they would fix the issue and it has yet to happen. There have been numerous updates, all saying there have been bug fixes and physical (aesthetically pleasing) changes, yet they have not tackled the biggest issue they face. The apps freeze, shut down, and refuse to work if you are connected to the internet, which means you cannot comment or read comments, cannot view new books on your home tab, or search for books either. You can view your library, but only your most recently viewed items, the older ones will not download without internet access. You cannot add titles (as an author) without being connected to the internet, but cannot write without the app freezing. You can't do various other things as well.
It saddens me that I can no longer post stories or search for new ones to read. I cannot connect to my viewers or comment/ read comments on my favorite titles. To view wattpad on an Apple devise, you must be detached from the community that Wattpad creates for its readers and writers.
Bug fix 5/5
By Bugged Person
Please update to fix some bugs please? I want to edit my story but all the writing is gone when I do want to edit.
Fix the iOS app 2/5
By Quen Cooper
Everytime I try to read I freezes and shuts down only to freeze again and it happening alllll the time now please fix this the update made it worse I can’t even read one page in a book !!!!!!
I used to love this app 1/5
Ever since the adds where added the apo keeps crashing. It doesnt upload well the stories and overall it makes it nearly impossible to read because pf it. I wated for updates to fix this issue but it keeps happening. Its sad since i love this app but i cant even use it because it crashes so much.
I love Wattpad but recently every few minutes it’ll freeze and I’ll have to close the app and then re-open it and it’s super annoying. Anytime I try to write on it my phone freezes and so now I have to write on something else and then copy and paste it onto Wattpad and sometimes that doesn’t even work. I love Wattpad but it’s getting really annoying and I don’t know what is making it glitch so bad but that needs to be fixed because it’s getting way worse than it used to be.
Super Annoying 1/5
By TS <3
I'm just really annoyed with this app right now.
All I want, is to be able to start my chapter out in bold, and in the middle, and then write the actually paragraphs without the bold, and from the left of the screen, and I can do that unless I change the settings every time I start a new sentence.
Plus, you're making us pay for premium, to get the features back that we used to have for free. It's literally like paying for the old Wattpad Beta.
If there was a way to get back the old version of Wattpad, I would do it.
I liked having the punctuation marks on the top bar instead of the typo emphasis' that don't even work.
What also annoying as a reader, is that when you click the top of the screen it makes you go back to the beginning of the book. That makes me so angry because I can't ever look at my notifications without losing my place in the book.
G8 app lol 4/5
It has a wide variety of genres and has a lot of fun different social aspects, but I’m here just to ask for one thing; likes on comments. I usually end up following the people I see comment things that are really funny, and I think it’s kind of cheating the people who actually write. I also kind of want to see just how many people find my comments funny because then you can actually see how many likes you get, not just getting spammed by people saying “same!” and stuff.
Waste of time! 1/5
It used to be a great app to read books on. Now it won’t let me load anything unless i buy premium. I don’t use the app enough to wanna but premium so i deleted it all together. I wouldn’t recommend to anyone!
By Be Gone Thot
Yes it cool. Blah blah blah. Those stories in the update tho... they’re just weird. But yeah I enjoy the app all together
It’s freezing 2/5
When I’m reading the app freezes and I have to go in and delete the app and gets annoying very fast
App crashes after update
APP FREEZES AND SHUTS DOWN 1/5
By llTetell :D
I love this app but all it does is freeze and shuts down and then it won't pull back up. Wattpad just isn't what it use to be. The app is just so screwed because if it isn't one thing, it's another. The ads are super annoying like after every chapter is a little extreme. I hope you all see this comment and all the other thousand comments about the freezing and finally fix the bug.
I love wattpad but can you fix the glitches that it has it keeps freezing and closing can you please fix that
It keeps logging me off every time I click out of it. It’s getting annoying. This never happened until I updated it. So please make an update to fix this.
3 steps back. 2/5
Not a fan of the recent update. It’s all reverted back to the orange. I’ve been a “premium” member since it was offered. The ads are back and the ‘color’ and ‘themes’ are non existent. :/ the reading is great though!
Really good 5/5
It's a really good app,you will not regret it
Logging out and saying my password is not right 4/5
It logged me out and when i go to sign in it says my password is not right. I write down all my passwords to all my usernames. This needs to be fixed.
It been freezing my phone a lot recently
By Queen Tsukina
This is a very nice app and is widely know. But lately it’s been having some issues. I’m not sure if it’s because of the 4 hour update you guys did recently but the app is like terrible now. I try to log in and it says password is incorrect. I try resetting the password, it’ll say the the link is no long valid. What is going on?! Fix it!!
Freezing and crashing 1/5
By Eli Eli Eliz Elizabeth
I would rate 5 stars if you fixed the glitch where you keep freezing. I'm tired of exiting out of wattpad every 5 seconds to read a book, and my wattpad freezing when I'm trying to write a book, and I lose everything I write. I talked to the bot and did what it said, but I'm still freezing.
it keeps buffering and loading like a ad is going to pop up but nothing happens it takes me to a blank website and it’s really frustrating please fix this problem and i’ll give a better review :/
I love wattpad but lately it’s been kicking me out.
What The Heckle 1/5
A couple days ago, I opened the wattpad app to discover my previously full library mysteriously empty. All of my current reads were gone as well as my archived stories. After refreshing again and again, I hopped over to the After Dark app (same maker as wattpad, and libraries are linked) and found that my library was still available on the other app! Since then my library miraculously returned to the wattpad app, but now the app constantly crashes and signs me out. I have the newest version of the app so these have to be new glitches. HELP!
So I’ve been on Wattpad for years and since the most recent updates (Ads) I’ve been having a lot of issues .The app just freezes it doesn’t even crash, I get stuck while reading and it won’t scroll up or down. Sometimes it’ll even black out and reload ! pretty much has a mind of its own. I voiced my concerns still no change !!!! so I decided to try the Premium (Trial) account and wow all my previous issues are still there !?!?! For $5 a month you better get it together! Can’t even say my phones the issue since it’s a newer model, Can I just enjoy reading !?!?! 😩😩😩
Wattpad on Apple devices 5/5
I don’t know why and/or if this is only me but every time I try to use Wattpad on an apple device it freezes up after about five seconds. I really love the app in general though. I’ve been using it since early 2016 and have always loved it.
Problem Solved 3/5
By Your Amiga
I can now log-in again! I still gave it a three though because of ads and the whole premium thing. I know it costs money and it would come to this eventually, but I still miss the days of being ad-free without cost. It is an amazing site and has some awesome fan-fiction, so I really can’t complain too much.
Absolutely Outstanding 5/5
This is one of the best apps I’ve ever downloaded! I’ll admit I was skeptical at first, but I’ve been using it nearly a month now, and it’s blown me away! From the ability to read millions of other books, to writing your own and getting your word out there, It is a completely amazing app, and I highly recommend to anyone aspiring to become an Author, or anyone who enjoyed writing overall! Or even to someone who just needs a space to clear their mind and write it out!
I just have one issue 5/5
By Zigg zagg 0982489
The whole app is really good and I’ve been enjoying it but I’ve been having trouble with it loading. I don’t know if it’s just me... whenever I open the app it works fine but then it’s choppy it freezes and it quits. I can’t check all of my notifications. Just needs that fixed.
Love it, but... 4/5
By Kichi Momotami
I really truly do love Wattpad, but I struggle with glitches too often. Mainly with getting kicked out of the app, and I can't finish books anymore at this point due to these problems. Another problem is that my books are being deleted from my library. Other than these very few major issues I am absolutely in love with this app. I will never be able to replace it.
PARK JIMIN 5/5
okay does no one else see jimin in one of the pictures for the app like... they used a jimin book for one of the pictures like a woman is proud
Also ive been using this app for awhile just been too lazy to write a review yeah its great but im a sucky writer lol
By lovegawhore 🤣🌹

I’m not sure if it’s Because of the new update but my App has been frozen to where i can’t move and finish my books . I am upset because I was on a good part! Please fix this immediately.
I love this app! 5/5
This app has amazing quality, from writing to reading.
Your account represents who you are and what you love.
It’s let me meet new people who inspired me to keep moving on in life and to me, that is extremely important. Without the love and support, I’d be no one.
I love how Wattpad has opened up a whole new world for me, my family, and my friends.
And I hope you all with download this amazing app.
I love my amazing app. 5/5
It is very addicting. I use it all the time. I get to download as many stories as I like and read them when ever I want to.
Thanks brunilda 13 💕

Freezes too much 5/5
By Trinity(aka Luna)
Wattpad freezes too much on me and sometimes won’t save my books but other than that it’s a good app.
When a person updates it doesn’t show it just takes you back to the last update.Its going very slow and if you don’t fix it I will have to delete the app and find a new reading one.I been using this app for 3 years no and this has never happened.
Constantly Freezing 4/5
I love the app, but ever since I updated my app, the app would freeze continuously.
PLEASE FIX IT!!!!!
