Needs to be made more user friendly 4/5
By Big Sky1021
Wish I could type in the title of a novel and find it
So far so good 5/5
I’ve found this app through authors on Wattpad I just started using this app and so far it’s great. I also love how the developer responds to many reviews in order to help make their app better and comfortable for its users.

This app is amazing. The support people are very kind and patient, and I love that they publish popular stories based on the number if readers. Amazing.
App is weird 3/5
I learned of Inkitt through authors on Wattpad, and I was excited to use it as a new source of stories. At first the app ran smoothly and I had no problems reading my stories and changing chapters through the menus. However, after a few weeks the app became sort of unresponsive and when I tried to access the menu the app refused to open it. There are also times where the app randomly decides to open the menu and display all the information and I’m not able to close it. The app would be great if those issues could be fixed, since the selection of stories available are pretty solid. However, the problems with the app’s issues have really ruined the experience for me.
Interesting app and company 5/5
The concept is a community of writers and readers - with a publishing company in the background.
Writers offer their books for free due to the publishing company offering potential incentives such as cash for competitions and a potential publishing deal to books that get read to completion the most with good reviews.
Readers get free books (awesome), writers get an engaging audience (fantastic), and the publishing company receives a pool of manuscripts with data attached- like how interested the community is in the book (fantastic)! Win, win, win! At least that is my understanding of the app and company thus far.
Please feel free to check out my YA fantasy novel on the app - Cloud Shifters!
It is really great 5/5
I really liked that inkitt developed such a great app. I am one of the inkitt writers and I became happy when I saw it. By this app I can read novels much easier and It is really great but still I could not sign up and I don’t know why it says no connection. I hope It will be solved. Inkitt always helped writers in many different ways and as we see still it does.

Can you maybe add the paging feature in to so u can chose if you want to page or scroll please cause when I scroll it’s hard for me to like the book
Great reading app, but lackluster writer app. 3/5
I’m just starting to publish my stories online, and love Inkitt. But the fact I can’t check my own reading analytics, upload stories written from my phone or edit my existing stories.
That’s about it.
Good but... 4/5
It’s a good app with great stories but I wish they had a symbol that showed if the story is complete or in-progress.
Read out load option 4/5
Just wondering if this app has an option to read out load like some of the other app. since sometimes am reading at night and don’t feel like looking at the screen for long periods of time.
Mostly Great 3/5
By C Priv
The only bad things that I can say about the app are that 1. It is occasionally laggy. 2. I wish it was easier to browse my personal library, why is there so much space in that area if you can only scroll side to side instead of up and down. 3. I wish there was an option to flip pages instead if scroll, I am used to Wattpad where that is an option so I have to wait for it to load the table of contents then close that to continue reading and as I said, it is laggy.
Book options 4/5
This app is really great and nice. But my only problem is that it doesn’t give me new options for books to read. So if a skip a book it gives me the same one later.It would be nice to have more book options
Must have 5/5
It’s very easy to use! Love finding new books on Inkitt to read.
Waste of space 1/5
I got this app because Wattpad writers where posting there chapters a week earlier on Inkitt I’ve had this app for 2weeks now and it never works there always something wrong with it and if I can’t simply read a book without altercation it’s not worth it
Good, but hard to navigate 4/5
I enjoy the books on the app! However, I wish it showed the full description of the book or gave a ‘more’ option. It would also be great to see the last time a book was updated, within the library and on discover pages. Also, why is there a limited number of results for each category? I can’t get past 20 or so books. It would be great for authors to use tags, or someway to identify what the book is about, past the genres.
Inkitt review 4/5
I love this app it is such a good and convenient place to read and explore different genres of reading
Annoyed AF 1/5
Seriously wish they’d stop poaching all my favorite authors off of Wattpad. Like get your own authors! I know it’s a good opportunity for them but it’s just a hassle for everyone else. That’s like the fourth book for me this week that’s been out on here. Now I can’t freely read books that I’ve really enjoyed reading as much. I have to wait seven days more than I’ve already waited for. Most of these books I’ve read from the very beginning of the authors journey. I don’t need or want to download a whole new app when I already have one that I can’t even read them on!
Not much to not like 4/5
I enjoy reading on this app and I enjoy most of the books I’ve found but I do have a few adjustments for the app that could be made. These could be pet peeves of mine but I’d really like to be able to flip the pages in the books instead of having to scroll and I don’t like the layout of the books when they’re in your library, I find it easier if they’re in columns or rows and for some way/notification on the book itself to see when its updated. I’d also like a way to be able to easily find completed/good books. I’ve found some gems but only when I search deep and for awhile. Other than these things that I’d change I enjoy reading with Inkitt, I think it’s a great app that gives writers good opportunities.

Edit: It would be nice to add books to your library rather than just simply downloading them for offline purposes. Also, taking the books from the library would be a nice upgrade because it piles up over time. And a bug that needs to be fixed: some stories claim to have x amount of reviews but when reviewing the reviews, it’s not the number that it claims it has. It’s normally less than that.
So I have been using Wattpad for 4+ years and I’ve decided that when it was time to write that I should share my stories on multiple writing platforms to promote myself. I have only had Inkitt for two days, but I have to say that I absolutely enjoy the layout and the reviewing system. The star system is something I’ve always wanted Wattpad to try and now that I’ve find it with Inkitt I think I’ll enjoy it a lot. Also, the design of Inkitt is so simple and very pleasing. It’s easy to navigate and reading is fun. You can read books offline (this is one of the perks of the app considering Wattpad got rid of this feature)!! Awesome! Although I have enjoyed this app in the few days that I have had it, I would like to make some suggestions to the app:
- Add a paging option when reading instead of scrolling. I don’t mind scrolling to read the text, but I prefer to turn a page because it mimics reading an actual book.
- Allowing writers to edit their writing on the app itself could prevent a lot of trouble. It would be easier for me to edit using the mobile app rather than a computer most times because I won’t always be able to use my computer. So adding a feature to edit your work on the app should be considered.
Other than that, I really enjoy reading on the app. If anything it’s more of a reading app than a writing app, but it makes it so easy to find a book to read. I love this app, and am not leaving it anytime soon.
Creating an account... 3/5
I try to login on the app but it doesn’t let me so when I try to create an new one it says I’m too young. I must admit sadly that I’m in my 20’s but it still thinks I’m too young. Thanks for the confidence boost Inkitt
Love the idea of the app, however, why can I not search for books by their names? Or even the authors? The app keeps on using one specific word from the title of the books i’m searching for and recommends a bunch of other books except the one i’m looking for.
Great but... 4/5
It is an amazing app but we can barely see the comments now. Only the most recent three show up at a time. Also being unable to delete and sort through our library makes the app a little undesirable. Everything else is great though!
Great but needs work 4/5
I love the way they treat their authors but the comment section needs work. If they could have it were it would be more like comment threads (like Facebook?) it would be so much easier communicating with other readers to develop plot theories. Fix that and you have the complete package. Plus lately comments won’t load on my app :(
It won’t let make an account! 1/5
I love this app but I wish there were more stories that had more than 30 chapters. I’m reading one now called Damon that has over 60 chapters and I love it.
Enjoyable With A Few Issues 3/5
I learned about Inkitt through an author I follow on WattPad. While I enjoy not having limitations on Inkitt and being able to find and read stories for mature audiences, whereas WattPad inhibits this, there are some issues. First off, I’m not getting notifications. I’ve checked everything within my devices settings; It’s the app. Then when you go into Inkitt and check notifications when someone posts a new chapter of a story, it says it’s unavailable, takes you to the beginning of the previous chapter, and you have to scroll down and click “next chapter” to read that new chapter. While it’s not a huge deal, it’s inconvenient. Also, discussions and comments on stories are hard to decipher. It’d be nice if what the person is commenting on was automatically quoted. All that said, I’d like to see some fixes, but it’s a good tool for readers and writers alike and I believe, due to issues I’ve seen develop on WattPad, that Inkitt is possibly more secure.
Love the app but... 3/5
I absolutely love what I can find in the app. I wish that there was a way of telling if a story is getting uploads, how long ago the last upload was, and if stories are completed. It's a huge inconvenience to be really into a story that never gets completed and I can't tell that they quit uploading it months ago. I also have a hard time finding a lot of stories from the small selection it gives me in the discover area. Please consider these in your next update. Thank you.
Best thing for reading but.... 4/5
This is a great reading app, it allows you to read any type or genre and is very organized. But I have been having this glitch the past few days where I can’t hit any of the other things like if I wanted to go to my library I can’t because it doesn’t click. I’ve tried powering off my phone completely and reopening but I just doesn’t seem to work.
Hate it 1/5
This app is so frustrating. When you first sign up it asks you a bunch of questions but they aren’t aligned with the screen so when I tap to put in the information it doesn’t allow me to type. I tried using the website but it doesn’t allow me to search. Every time I get on inkitt I just get so frustrated
Continues to kick me out 3/5
I read one or two sentences and it boots me out. I love the app and the books. Really enjoy it but with it booting me out every second I give up and go to another reading app.
App crashing 4/5
By reader with worn down gears
I was just starting to use inkitt regularly. I had been on wattpad and left because the app was crashing so bad but now the inkitt app is crashing too??? I just updated the app and hoped that would help but it has not and I am also on the latest version of software for my phone. Anyone else having this problem?
Very Fustrating 2/5
I’ve had the app for a week now and it was good all up until recently. The screen is always freezing and I can never change the page from the popular page to the new page or to my library because the screen gets stuck on the current page. Also, when I reach the end of the chapter, I can’t get to the next chapter or even leave the book because the screen becomes frozen. Clearing the app doesn’t work and I don’t want to keep deleting the app and downloading it again to fix the app.
Amazing App 5/5
I use it whenever I have some free time on the way to work, home, or when I just have to wait somewhere. The quality of the novels is way better than on Wattpad.
Fixes to make app useful for visually impaired users 4/5
This app is not very accessible for visually impaired users who require using Apple’s VoiceOver function. Please make the necessary changes to allow us access to all the apps functions and tools. I love reading and very much enjoy this app but it needs to be a lot more visually impaired friendly. Please take my request into consideration because I'm positive I cannot be the only user with these issues and concerns. And in an attempt to brive you in to making the necessary adjustments for us, I provide the assurance that you will gain many if not hundreds more users with this issue being fixed and this app being at the visually impaired community's reach. I know I've recommended it to many of my acquaintances and friends and would be more than glad to keep spreading the word to other fellow reading enthusiasts. Thank you for taking the time to read this very long complaint/request. Hope to see changes soon and thank you for caring and creating a great platform for readers and writers alike.
Fantastic for writers! 5/5
Instant feedback on your story.
I wish some of the manuscripts were further along in the editing process - but writing is a process!
Go get ‘um and keep reading/writing!
Freezes up and/or doesn’t open 3/5
I live the app, I have all kinds of books saved that I love; but here recently it won’t open. It just has a white screen and I thought maybe it was my phone? I switched to a new phone and it’s still doing it, so I don’t know what it is. Other than that, I really love this app
Inkitt app 4/5
Inkitt is awesome. I’m an avid reader and love this app!
Thank you so much for adding the google sign in! I am so happy you added this feature! 😍
Every time I open the app it keeps crashing. Please fix this soon it is getting ridiculous at this point.
Awesome app 5/5
This app is a great platform for aspiring writers and readers looking for new books!
Why won't it work 1/5
I have been trying to read a story that I saved and it keeps crashing on me and won't let me read all the chapter or even change chapters.
INKITT APP 5/5
I love this app! I would recommend this reading app to everyone ! Great books Great selections ! Try it !
I really like the app but 2/5
The app has really amazing stories but for some reason when I go into the app it suddenly takes me back out ! I’m so mad because this author I love is on here but because the app won’t even let me go in and read it 😩 please fix it !!!
Inkitt is a wonderful app that I love so much. I'm learning new words and reading new books that I didn't even know that existed! I have never had one problem with Inkitt! It's even helping me in school with my vocabulary, now that I'm reading again. I used to not like reading as much because the books at my library never kept me interested, only very few books did but those books were in a series, then I found this AMAZING app, Inkitt, I love all of these books on the app because they all keep me interested in reading, and I am so glad!!
Inkitt- is great, but I have a suggestion! 4/5
Ok. Ok. Inkitt is crazy cool, but I think it would be a look better if Inkitt’s team (of amazing dudes) would make it easier to delete and sort through your reading list, maybe like them all visible, and able to delete without having to go into the book to take off the bookmark. (Does that make sense? Ha...ha)
Great but.. 4/5
Not going to lie, I just downloaded this app, I have been with Wattpad for 4 years until there recent update that doesn’t allow us to read offline. I go on the app and I love the way it looks and the various book options there is, but is it possible to add another option for the reading format? Instead of only allowing “scrolling” can there be an option of “paging” as well? It’d be great if this could happen! Thank you for reading if you do.
Used to love this app.... BUT 2/5
lately every time I open this app it keeps crashing. So, I needed to re-download it again.... it works for a while..... but then it crashes again. (I re- download it at least fourth time)
Relieved I found Inkitt! 5/5
I was a very avid reader on wattpad but as year past it’s lost it’s touch. And I honestly believe Inkitt is a 2.0 version of wattpad.
Love the app but 4/5
Every time I try to go to my library it's always closing on me and it's a never ending cycle, really frustrating please fix.
It’s like a discount, Great Value brand of Wattpad.
