I couldn’t exit 1/5
By 2 star rate
I used to have this app on a different phone and I could exit out of stories, but now that I have downloaded it again to see some of my old works, I can’t because there was no exit to the story in the beginning.
I was very confused on how I get out the story it has now way of telling me but the app I pretty well made pretty good might I say good job Wattpad
Okay, okay! 3/5
I remember when Tap wasn’t like this...
I mean, you could look at pictures without having to pay and all,
But I’m hoping they only did that because of the inappropriate stories always having those pictures, gifs, etc, etc..
Though I just realized... Tap is beginning to becoming like those other text story apps ( I forgot the names so sorry if they are not correct ) like Hooked, or Readit ( ? ) y’know? You HAVE to pay to view this and this and this... And I’ll admit, I was disappointed when they got the new stories that let you choose your ending along with having to pay.
I also still kinda like Tap, but I did uninstall it.
That’s all for now,
By flame stinks
I was reading through a story or whatever, and then.. I have to WAIT 18 minutes just to continue??? Seriously?? Why do I have to pay to read boring stuff anyway...? Wattpad is a great app, but this? It was made only for cash.
On Wattpad, there’s ads, but they aren’t in your face. Same for the subscription stuff Wattpad has. That’s why I enjoy it. You can use it without paying. But this requires you to actually pay money to read a chat story that’s probably bad! You can’t use half of the features that the app promotes without having to pay. It’s really bad.
BEST STORIES I EVER READ 5/5
My favorite are the horrors and thrills.
Horrible 🙅🏽♀️ 1/5
The first thing that upset me was that it brought me to this story as soon as I open it app that I didn’t want to read at all and that you have to pay to answer the video call and see the picture, and there is no exit button that i can press to go to a different story and that you have to wait 30 minutes just to get some taps. Tbh I love Wattpad but this need to be better 👎🏽👎🏽
Where do I even start🤦🏽♀️ 3/5
Before I got this app I read a handful of reviews the all seemed pretty bad but I wanted to try it out anyway, I wish I didn’t.
At first it was going great, it did take a long time to load but overall it was ok. I looked through a bunch of stories and they all seemed pretty good, I chose my first one to be romance. I have to say, the story was pretty cool, I loved it. I was reading it and a pop up came and ask me to chose my next reply, I thought that was pretty cool (at first.) I clicked on my reply and it took me to the premium signup. At first I thought “Maybe this is like ‘Episode’” (if you don’t know what I’m talking about, basically some ‘Episode’ stories have ‘Gems’ and you use ‘Gems’ to “buy” things choices in the story you are reading.) I clicked back and chose the other option, and it took me ,once again, to the premium signup. I decided to just use the free trial, but you have to pay for that too? I know most apps do this but I really don’t see the reason for putting “free” in it then. (In the ‘Episode’ app you can use the free trial for FREE.) I thought it was stupid so I clicked out of the signup page and went back to the story, of course there wasn’t and option to skip it so I wanted to exit out of the story. I looked in the corner where there should be an ‘X’ but it wasn’t. I scrolled to the top of the page and there wasn’t no exit button. I exit out of the app and entered once again, only to find myself at the signup page. At this point I was annoyed, I went back to the story and looked again everywhere for the exit button and once again I couldn’t find it. This is honestly stupid, it’s basically forcing me to pay to be able continue then to exit. I very disappointed in this, I mainly got it because it was created by Wattpad. I understand that they many need the money, but forcing the reader to pay to be able to continue it very unnecessary . I’m sorry but I think I’ll just stick with ‘Wattpad’ and ‘Episode’ instead.
FIXX ITT 1/5
omg I CANT PLAY IT BECAUSE U HAVE TO PAY TO CONTINUE AND UR NOT EVEN THRU HALF THE EPISODE PLZ FIX IT CAUSE I WAS SOO EXCITED TO PLAY BUT NOW IM DISSAPOINTED😭😭☹️😞😒😡🤬
I used to like it but all of a sudden I had limited taps and needed to wait 20 minutes for more. I wrote my own stories but I have no access to them anymore. I deleted the app and reinstalled it. I hate horror but there’s a book that’s automatically there that I wish to skip, but unfortunately I can’t. You can’t exit out of the book and you need to wait an unnecessary long time to tap and get to the end. Disappointing.
This app was ok at first until I had to choose. But when I chose the answer, it said I had to pay $7.99 a month just to chose. That is just a waist of money, no thanks!
This App is so dumb! 1/5
IT MAKES YOU PAY FOR PREMIUM WHICH HELLO EXPENSIVE AND THEN I DON’T EVEN GET TO TAP A STORY THAT I WOULD LIKE!! I HATE HORROR/THRILLER STORY! DON’T GET THIS DUMBA$$ APP! SO STUPID! DELETED IN 2.5 SECONDS! GOODBYE APP IMA FIND A BETTER ONE AND PAY THEM!
I Used To Like It 1/5
By Glib Monster
Okay, so I used to love this app and would play it a lot! Sure, the wait I didn’t like, but I didn’t really care. But with these updates, I have a lot of dislikes.
You start with a story that you don’t even choose. On top of that, you have to wait around twenty minutes when you tap a certain amount in the story. Also you cannot click out of it.
And I love the pictures! I found that to be amazingly neat. But now you have to pay for something that used to be free.
I loved the app, but with theses additions, I honestly suggest not getting it until they change it.
A slippery slope 1/5
When this app was first released I had downloaded it and I have to say I actually really enjoyed using it. I had a read through a story featured on tap and then once done with that I was able to read as many stories as I wanted. Because I didn’t have premium I’d have only limited number of taps which wasn’t a big deal to me. That made me only want to come back to the story later on and kept me interested overall. I was also able to fairly easily make a story through tap very quickly and was actually pretty satisfied with it.
I had to restart my phone a few months back and I kind of forgot to re-download this one. So I decided to download it again and get back into making stories. However I was aggravated to find how drastically the app had been changed. In order to get to the home button you have to play through a very long story which if you don’t buy the premium for you can’t see videos or photos or even make certain choices in the app, let alone finish the story with one go. I understand why certain features like voice calls video chats and choices in the app, which weren’t features before when I first had this app, required to be paid for. But the fact that photos can’t be shown anymore without you paying is a disgrace.
The fact that the opening story within the first 10 messages already starts the importance of having a membership to get through and fully enjoy the stories was a very poor tactic for the team behind this app. If you want people to buy the membership you should at least allow them to get through the tutorial and actually experience the features you pay to unlock without shoving it down our throat’s that we need to pay for it. If you’re not going to let anyone have a taste of something before they pay for it you’re not going to get as many people as you would if you allow them to go through and actually try it. People especially the kids who use this app to read stories are not going to waste eight dollars on something they haven’t tried before and their parents certainly will do that either.
My advice in fixing this would be letting the user play the tutorial story with all the features and then afterwords when they try and read other stories with that feature remind them that to unlock them they need to pay for it. I guarantee that once they have actually been exposed to the amazing features added they will be more inclined to buy the membership.
Take away premium! 2/5
Some of the story revolves around sounds, pictures, and calls/video calls. I can’t get the premium thing because my mom won’t let me, and I’m broke, and I really want to know the rest of the story, so NO MORE IN-APP PURCHASES!
Otherwise this is a really good app. Thank you!
If I could give it a 0 stars I would 1/5
I love Wattpad don’t get me wrong, but tap is not what I like. First, why do I have to pay for the extra cool features. Second, I used to like tap because we could make our own tap story, but now we can’t. Third, why do we have to wait 30 minutes, it doesn’t make sense. Fourth, Wattpad is better than this. I’m disappointed Wattpad.
Very good keep it up
How is this game 4.0? 1/5
This game is rubbish. If you want good stories go to Wattpad.
By Hannah Litty
Listen, I get the whole subscribing thing to get more passes and diamonds whatever, but I just don’t get why my friends and people that want to read my stories have to make a subscription to see the pictures I post. I think it’s ridiculous you’re making someone pay for something that you didn’t put into the app, and that creators spend time working on that get no gains from it whatsoever
It was ok, but I found some issues 2/5
The advertising obviously but I found a problem with the billing for premium. I thought I had stopped the billing for the app, because the bill hadn’t came up in months. However this morning, I found it there. I don’t know if it was a once a month thing, but I deleted the app months ago.
i downloaded it to read north star, and then it gave me a choice. i rapped one and it kept putting me on the purchase page. $8 a month FOR THIS?! who would spend that much when you can literally read so many other better ones for free? crappy.
THIS GAME IS RIDICULOUS 1/5
This game has so many flaws such as WHY DOES IT MAKE YOU GO THROUGH A STORY YOU ARE NOT ABLE TO GET OUT OF WHEN YOU FIRST ENTER THE APP?!? Also everything interesting IS UNDER PREMIUM THAT COST $7.99 A MONTH and I am sorry that some of us are on a tight budget and came here to release some stress from family matters!!!! I MIGHT BE OVER REACTING BUT IT ALSO MAKES YOU WAIT 20 MINS TO CONTINUE ON WITH THE STORY!!!! And guess what you are able to get rid of the 20 minute wait but IT IS UNDER PREMIUM!!!?!?!?! I came to this app to read and get my mind of things but I have just been greeted with a ton of stuff that COST MONEY!!! I am sorry but this app at least for me is a waste of time!!! DO NOT GET THIS APP UNLESS YOU ARE RICH!!!!
I hate this app! 1/5
I can’t with this app! I’ve tried multiple times and gave it multiple chances, hoping that there would be updates and it will get better. But each time I download it, everything just gets worse and worse! I feel like there’s more advertisement with every update! Adding pictures and videos is cool, but having to pay in order to look at them is completely and utterly unnecessary! Plus, I can’t even get out of a story once I’m in it. I’ve tried pressing the arrow or the option it gives me to go back, but it never works! I love Wattpad, but this app is terrible! I highly suggest switching to apps like yarn and hooked.
This app was great at first. The stories are amazing; but in order to see the pictures and continuously read a story you have to get premium. I can’t afford that so I miss out on some of the story and have to wait. Please make that stuff free guys it’s sad.
It works great but I have to wait 19 minutes every time
HEAR MY PLEA 1/5
I USED TO LOVE THIS APP UNTIL THEY DIDN'T LET YOU WRITE YOUR OWN STORY! THATS COMPLETE BS AND I DON’T KNOW WHY THEY GOT RID OF IT! I DON’T EVEN CARE ABOUT THE PRICEY FULL EXPERIENCE JUST LET ME CREATIVE DAMMIT!
Far below expectations 1/5
So I got the app because I have and love Wattpad and I’ve heard of apps like this before that were good so I had high expectations, but it is awful. I’m not even going to start with the intro story because other reviews describe that, but when I finally got to pick a story, I started reading it and then it gave me a ‘choose what you want to do’ so I picked one and it said I needed premium to do it, but I can’t buy premium, and I can’t click out of the story till I finish it so basically I’m stuck in the story unless I buy premium. They shouldn’t let you click on those types of stories unless you already have premium or at least warn me. I just have to say, find a different message stories app.
A Waste Of Money! 1/5
This app is the worst app I could ever download! I mean, it could be pretty good if you have the money for it... only like a quarter into the story it asked me for a monthly “FREE” premium that is eight dollars a month and I’m not paying for that. I like reading stories but not paying for them! I know the creator wants money, but you don’t do it that way by putting high prices on just premiums for monthly payment! Why do you need to pay money to choose your ending! It’s so stupid! I mean you already have ads, that should make you money. Never download this app unless you have the money for it. It’s a good app, but a complete waste of money.
Honestly wasn’t as good as I thought 1/5
It was honestly okay..... until I couldn’t get out of the story! They told me I had to pay premium if I wanted to finish! And I didn’t even want to read the story in the first place!! You can’t choose what you want to read. I honestly would not recommend this app unless you want to pay money.
This app was a let down. If I tried to get back into the app it would just bring me right back to the beginning of the first story I read and I’d have to read it all over again.
It’s okay? I guess 3/5
Okay I love this app I love the stories there very intertanging and awesome but one problem the prices are very expensive. And you have to wait so fricken long. So at least some things free?
Like phone calls In the chats and maybe at 3 tickets every 2 hours or one but yea that’s my review I put 1 star but imma put 3 now...
Came exit 1/5
So I had this app a few months back and deleted it because it was using up my space. So I decided to download it back because I was bored, but when I got on the app it wouldn't let me exit the freaking story YOU GUYS are making me read and it is really pissing me off. So maybe put an exit button on the stupid story's or something and maybe this app won't be a complete waste of space.
I don’t know how to feel about this 2/5
You can read the story’s but you can’t see pictures or answer phones calls from the games without paying $7.99 a month for it. And if you want a free trial you have to download another app. I don’t really like this app.
Hate it! 1/5
I saw this app on an ad thinking this should be a good app. Wrong! You have to pay to play. Do not get this app! I would give it zero stars if I could!
Tap is an amazing platform. The stories are creative and original. The premium version is definitely something I’d recommend!
Don’t buy it! 1/5
By pickles doodlebug
I downloaded this app after seeing all of their adds on Snapchat. I thought I’d be able to see a cute love story unfold. What did I get instead? A story about a murderous little girl that I didn’t want to read. There’s no way out of this story and eventually, an ad pops up! It advertises premium which is EIGHT DOLLARS A MONTH. I’m sorry, but no one can afford that just to read- and not even good stories. I wish I had never downloaded this app.
I unsubscribed from the free premium and it charged me? I don’t understand
🤬🤬🤬You can’t do anything except play stupid stories 😡 1/5
By Sophie is amazing!!/
I used to love Tap because unlike other texting stories apps, tap let you create your own stories. After the update where it changed so you could only view pictures and answer phone calls if you had a membership— that’s when things went downhill. But still, I could create my own stories. After March 2018, you could no longer create your own stories. You are forced to play official stories. You can’t even browse them either. It’s just one after another. The stories are boring and dull and this app is so very disappointing.
DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY ON A MEMBERSHIP.
When Hooked deleted it’s creativity, I fled to Wattpad’s new app, Tap. Thinking that I loved watt pad and they’re not pay to win.
But congrats tap / watt pad,
You lost your creative spark
Not that good 1/5
By Tasnim R.
I actually really would have liked this app... the context is very interesting and when I am trying to read a story, they ask for you to make a choice which is pretty cool but you have to pay and once you start reading a story, you have to finish it... but you can’t finish it unless you pay so u are stuck and it’s super annoying
Tap is great! 4/5
I really like Tap but, like all of these reading apps you have to wait a long time unless you pay.
This is a ok app it lets u pick your story but u should really let us pick our choice and not to pay the only thing we should pay for is the video call or photos not the choices
don’t waste your time 1/5
i saw an ad for it while browsing wattpad and i figured i would download it. don’t waste your time! you have to subscribe to be able make practically every choice in the story, which is obviously not attractive who doesn’t wanna pay the $7.99 fee to read some texts to pass the time. 🙄
Good stories but you can never get back to the menu and it just forces the premium package on you... you can’t view images or chose between two responses(which means I can’t get back to the main menu) without it
Unforgivingly Terrible 1/5
By Camryn GK
I downloaded this app as a way to pass the time and it was a HUGE mistake. When you first download it you’re FORCED to play through a story that you don’t care about. Then you get a video call which seems like a cool feature but in reality you have to BUY PREMIUM. You can’t leave the story and then you can’t finish because you have to wait 30 some minutes to get more taps. You can’t even view the probably horrible photos without upgrading. And the premium is freaking $7.99!!! I get that they want to raise some money but I JUST DOWNLOADED the game for crying out loud! I’m not going to blow $8 on some game that I honestly don’t care about. They should let you experience the features for free at the beginning so you can decide for yourself if you want waste the money. If you can’t buy premium DON’T EVEN BOTHER! Waste of my time and frankly everyone else’s.
In short: this app isn’t worth your time, effort, or money.
Wattpad is by far one of my favorite online reading and writing apps, so I figured this one would be good too. When I opened the app, however, I was trying to tap through a story when it gave me the option to basically choose my own destiny. Then, when I tried to pick an option, it said I couldn’t continue without signing up to pay. What? You can’t even continue through a story without paying some ridiculous price. Don’t get me wrong, if you like these sorts of things, then this might be the app for you...if you’re willing to pay, that is.
More help maybe? 1/5
Ok literally wattpad is one of my most favorite apps like ever, it’s a place where I can be myself
But “Tap” is just flat stupid, you have a read a story about a killer little girl with no ending like what. Then you just sit and wait for like 20 minutes and do nothing while it keeps you asking for some stupid premium membership thing that is WAY overpriced, maybe you can put up some directions on what you want to do, or how to work the app instead of leaving everyone there blind, Wattpad has a help button firsthand and I feel like that’s why people continue to use the app.
This game would probably be cool but you have to literally pay for everything so I wouldn’t know I’m mad it makes you pay for every little thing
Forced to read a lengthy story about something I don’t care about. Then I’m forced to wait around 20 minutes to finish reading something I don’t want to read. I can’t skip it that I know of and too much advertising for premium.
Taking my dads money 1/5
I would want you to stop taking my dads money and I would want to not a automatic renewal like you guys need to let me know before.
Don’t download 1/5
The story I was reading was “North Star” and I was only in part 1, while I was clicking through it asked me to pick two different ways my story could go. I tried picking one but I had to buy premium to do that, so I chose the other option and I had to buy premium for that to, so I tried to find a way to click out of the game but I couldn’t so I double clicked my home button and restarted it and I was still unable to get out of the story. Just a btw the prices are extremely high for premium it’s $8 a month, you do get a free trial but after that you have to start paying. I don’t recommend this app, I would more recommend hooked or something different.
SO F-ING TERRIBLE 1/5
I recommend u to not download this app it makes u have to pay and u can’t choose your ending caus u have to pay you can look at pictures cause u harbor pay and u can’t answer the calls cause u also have to pay so yeah and I wasn’t even like 2 minutes into the app so yeah:( if you are willing to pay like $15-$17 dollars a month don’t download this app honestly 0 out of 5 and I’m gonna try and not rate this
