Fix freezing 2/5
Ever since y'all updated the app it's been freezing for me and I have to exit the app and come back to the app just so it can freeze again like a minute later and it's seriously getting on my nerves, please just fix this problem already.
Glitches and app crashing 2/5
I started using this app when I was 14(ish) I am now almost 21 years old and I can not stand the crashing and glitches that app has been doing for months now! Every single time I want to read anything at all the app freezes and crashes. I upgraded to premium about a month ago and it is still crashing and freezing! Every time an update has come out nothing is being fixed. I have not been able to use this app for months and I am just over it.
Color themes 1/5
While I understand the need for premium to have a add free app, but the color themes should be given to everyone, even if it’s just five choices. Please please let people who can’t afford premium have some kind of free access to the color themes. I love the orange but I would be over the moon to be able to choose the color the app runs in for me.
In addition I just found out during a road trip that you cannot access your library offline without being a premium member. That is honestly such bull crap. It’s been a free option for as long as I have been using the app. People can not afford the price of premium more than likely cannot afford the cost of more data which they will now need to have if they want to read anything.

I’ve only been using this app for three years. It was an alright app. Spent most of my free time using it, but with the recent updates it gone downhill. The app all together can not be used for my than a few minutes. Just swiping or even scrolling has the app freeze or crash. I personally find it very frustrating trying to update one of my story’s and the app freezing after only typing half of a sentence. I just started writing on the note app, on my phone. Copying and paste what I’ve written to make it less frustrating but if anything it gets worse. Just now it was a pain trying to post something on the “conversations”. I would really appreciate if you’d at least try to fix whatever has led the app to not work.
Freezing and Kicks you off! 1/5
I have been using this app off and on for several years, I recently started using it a lot more because I got into some pretty great stories. For the past two months there has been a problem with the app constantly freezing and kicking you off, at first I over looked it thinking maybe it would be fixed with an update, several updates later and it’s still going on. It’s starting to get VERY annoying and really not something I can overlook. As soon as you get on the app it freezes. I love love this app but if you won’t fix the problem then I guess I’ll delete it, which makes me sad because I really don’t want to!
could be better 3/5
it lags terribly and it always freezes up,bi always have to close it out and reopen it just to finish one chapter of a book
Look, Wattpad is the best app EVER (follow me @corbeannbesson) but i swear if you don't let me read books peacefully without wifi i think I'll die. Im broke and socially awkward so i cant just be sitting on the bus looking around and stuff. I NEED books. So please, just let me read my books in peace without having to pay. It's punishing the poor, socially awkward nerds with no money.
I have had this app for the past 4-5 years and loved it. I started to dislike it when the adds came around but you know I knew it was for the authors. But then the payment thing and having to do a membership in order to read books is crazy. I got this app to read books that were good but weren’t professional at the same time. I am even thinking about deleting this app to find a different place to read from.
I’ve used wattpad for well over 4 years now and it’s been a godsend. I love to reading and this was my favorite place to read. But sadly now I can’t. I am limited on funds so paying to read my stories offline is out of the question. I haven’t had wifi since 2015 so i rely heavily on my 2g speed mobile data. I’m sad to see this happen to one of my favorite apps 😢
A Bit of Change 5/5
Hey Wattpad! Keep up the amazing work your doing with this app because I couldn't love it more. <3 But, the review I'm sending in is that, will you be able to update the app with a Two-Factor Authentication? Because when someone tries to get into your Wattpad account, they won't be able to bypass it because we have that Two-Factor Authentication on.
Please, the Wattpad community and I will appreciate this so much if you guys do it. We want to keep our accounts safe and NOT in the wrong hands. Thank you!
Also, is it alright as well to remove when you joined Wattpad? I think it’s better not having that on your Wattpad bio.
Fix it Wattpad! 1/5
By Sarah Mick
It’s an annoyance to repeat the process of shutting down the app over and over again because of its freezing and lagging constantly. You guys need to fix that problem especially since it interrupts the enjoyment of reading a decent book, or even the attempt of writing one.
By Kaitlyn Kears
I’m a huge fan of Wattpad and have been using it for years. One thing that annoys me is the notification saying “so and so replied to your comment” but it’s someone replying to a comment thread I was in. Could you change it where it differentiates between someone replying to YOUR comment vs commenting in a thread you were in?
ADD A BLOCK BUTTON PLEASE 5/5
By Justa random person!
wattpad has been great for the past years i’ve had it, but all these updates you guys added are making the app not as good. (as you can see in other reviews, other people are dealing with a lot of problems in the app as well) if you’re not going to fix anything and just add more things can you at least add a block button?!
I love but sometimes 4/5
By fare thompson
The app is great but it have it moments where it just freezes or glitches
Won’t load 1/5
Every once and a while I have to delete this app and reinstall it because parts of the app won’t load. Extremely annoying to have to keep doing this.
Please fix this 2/5
It will not let me log into my acc with out going to the support. But when I go to the website it says it is a fake. I've been on this website for 2 years now and this problem is getting out of hand. All I want to do is be able to read on my mobile phone but I can't even do that! Please just fix your server. It has been doing this for 2 weeks! It got to the point to when I couldn't even get on the media. Im a book lover and a lot of the books o here are great. But this is ruining my opinion about this app. Please fix it!
I use it everyday 4/5
I love this app you have a large variety of stories to choose from with new ones updated everyday. If you want something specific, search on here and you'll most likely find it and if not you can make someone a request. The only issues I have is that sometimes when scrolling the app freezes. Sometimes if you wait it will load and move, but other times you must reopen the app, but fortunately it stays where you were. Also I wish that there was a way to sort who followed you or mentioned you separate from the update notifications.
I love wattpad but can you fix the glitches that it has it keeps freezing and closing can you please fix that and its not my phone because my phone doesnt do that with any other app its only wattpad please fix it and FIX THE FREAKING GLITCH AND STOP PUTTING THE SAME UPDATE CAUSE ALL ITS GONNA DO IS THE SAME FREAKING THING 😡
Wattpad can do better 3/5
Wattpad is great.... actually it’s my favorite app but when y’all tried to make us pay for “premium” just to read books offline is ridiculous 💯 then on top of that premium is not offering really anything. Also I can’t read ONE chapter without it freezing and lagging 💯
It literally keeps on crashing every three minutes and it is extremely annoying.
By bloody becket
Honestly I love this app I use it everyday but the only problem I have is that I have to uninstall and reinstall the app all the time cause it keeps freezing.
It freezes 4/5
By paola angel
Hi I love watt-pad but somehow it’s stops working,it freezes a lot I know I might be the only one but can u guys somehow fix this problem. Thank you.
By From Anon
App is kind of slow but besides that its great
Rampant bullying issue 2/5
By 💔n ❤️er
Not as much as one would think.
Wattpad’s a great place to get your voice heard. But not always by the best people. As an advocate for the lgbtq+ community I try to use representation in my stories. I have books about my opinion as well.
I got a gun threat by someone I know in real life on this site. I have regular hate comments on my books.
You’d have to be insane to want your child on here.
GET RID OF PREMIUM! 2/5
Wattpad, you used to be a great place for having a portable library for reading and writing books offline.
Wattpad has changed my life in many different ways, but this “premium” thing is getting out of hand.
Are you in need of money, or are you plain selfish?
I don’t want to pay eight dollars a month for something that was originally free.
Everything was free. That’s what I loved about it. As a high school student who doesn’t have a job, I’m glad to have anything that I don’t have to pay for, and I know plenty of people who agree with me.
This is exactly what’s happening to apps like YouTube, Sing and Facebook as well.
It sickens me that you would take advantage of the users and urge them to pay for something they shouldn’t pay for.
It’s stupid and it isn’t fair.
The only reason I’m giving you an extra star is because this app is my only connection to some of my best friends.
Not liking the premium updates. 5/5
I personally have been using this app since I was 13 and I am now almost 18 years old. But I recently lost phone service and I see that now I can’t read unless I have premium. I would rather that change cause I find it unfair for me. Cause than I can’t even read at all since I don’t have premium.
Please Fix! 2/5
By omg i hate
I absolutely love the writers and the stories on this app, so this problem is ruining it for me a bit. Whenever I’m in the middle of a story, the app freezes and I have to close the app and re open. I have to do it multiple times too. Then I have to delete it and re download it. It’s incredibly annoying. Imagine the story you are reading has a cliffhanger and all of the sudden, your app freezes and you can’t scroll or press anymore so you need to close your app! I even restarted my phone and it didn’t work! Please fix!!!
Love it but.... 2/5
Every single time it updates I have problems! It crashes more than works for me
Love it 4/5
But it keeps freezing
A sprinkle of happiness on a dreary day 3/5
By Marshmallow killer
Pure Awesomess. It's truly lovely. 😊
Update: gonna have to change my 5 to a 3.I don’t know if this is due to an Apple update( I have the iPhone 6s)or an update on wattpad’s part, but lately every time I use the app it freezes. So much so that I’ve stopped using it as frequently, if at all. I really hope this problem is fixed because it’s kind of bothersome.
It’ll Never Be Not Amazing 5/5
Okay so I’ve had this app for about a year now, and it is the most incredible platform for bookworms and aspiring authors who just want to write. There is absolutely no problem with starting a book. Just hit create and start writing. You can make your own covers and everything. I just can’t explain how much I love this. The only thing that might need updated is the slowness when you’re trying to scroll through the browsing section. Lately it’s been lagging. And I’d love to update to VIP, only I can’t pay every month/year. It’d be cool to just have one down payment and become a VIP. A lot of users are below 18, or don’t have a credit card. So I think it would benefit both sides of the platform to just have one payment. Maybe the company would even make a larger profit. Anyway, that’s just my “suggestion” portion. Definitely get this app!!
I love the app but due to the resent update every time I’m flip to a new chapter it glitches and the screen freezes. And it’s really annoying.
Freezing / Crashing 3/5
I personally love Wattpad and Ive been on it for 3 years now but now it has started to annoy me when I try to do certain things or go to the next chapter in my book and the whole app freezes up, it doesn’t happen that often but when it does it annoys me to the max because it will happen almost every time I open the app and when you put out a new Version it comes with it. I would just like for the freezing and crashing to stop all together and I hope you guys could fix that as soon as possible.
Please fix the compatibility for iPhone 6 1/5
I have a Andriod and it works fine on there but it crashes and like freezes up on my iPhone. PLEASE FIX!!😭😭
By Jamaica Kai Love
I have an iphone a couple updates ago I noticed while I’m scrolling through a chapter or books the app freezes then I have to force close it but it happens every time and I end up reading on my android. frustrating.
Everything is great but two issues 4/5
I’ve had this app for years and I’ve always loved it, but recently it’s been having a lot of glitches!! Like sometimes it won’t let me scroll or turn the page and my screen will just freeze. I also wish i could block people that i don’t want to see me works, but all you can do is unfollow:/
Other than that the app is great!
This needs to be fixed honestly just saying 2/5
Okay so I'm going to be honest and say that whenever I don't use Wattpad that much of when I go on it, it always keep saying when I try to reply to a comment "user not login" even tho I'm actually logged in and when it happens I always have to uninstall WATTPAD and reinstall it and log back in again which is tiring to do
What up with Wattpad 3/5
Idk what’sGoing on but like Wattpad has been crashing like crazyAnd it’s also like freezing up like halfway through the book and I also can’t write without it freezing up please fix one part is a great app that has minor bugs and tricks or whatever but it gets kind of annoying when you have to keep resetting and resetting and resetting just to get that to work
This is a great app but every time I open the app and tap to read a story it always freezes and it exits me out of it. Please fix!!!
App keeps freezing!! 1/5
I’ve been having this issue since updating it and it freezes as soon as I open it!
By Da bae😇
it freezes all the time, I can’t even read a story without having to exit out of the app even 5 minuets. The app used to be way better
There Is A Major Bug 4/5
By Aella Valda Crest
There is a bug on Wattpad that whenever I write or add to my stories in my pc, everything is deleted by the time I go to it on mobile. This would be 5 stars otherwise. I really hope this problem is fixed in the future update. Hopefully it goes to mobile now that it’s still on pc.
I like the app but know it say I’m off line and my Internet is working so I don’t know why is say I’m offline. Since I’m not a premium member I guess I can’t the story’s I like.
I’ve been a member since 2013 1/5
The only reason why i’m rating the app one star is so someone at support can see this. The app has been crashing for the past two days since I updated it. I’ve asked my friends and the screen stops responding yo touch. Please help
Dude seriously 2/5
I love this app so much and have been on it for a long time but, you need to fix it. It almost always crashes and never seems to want to load. I’m not sure what you guys are doing but all the updates never help.
I. Am. Done. 1/5
Every time there’s an update it’s for your little premium s*** that no one wants. I used to love this app but now I’m just angry that it freezes every time I open it! Other people have been complaining about this too and you do NOTHING! Wattpad I am deleting your app, I’m just done…
Love this app 5/5
This is my most used app on my phone, and I can't imagine how boring my free time would be without it.
I noticed there are quite a lot of reviews upset about not being able to read books offline. All you have to do is save them to your archive beforehand and you'll be able to read.
Love it ! 3/5
I personally love this app, I used it for so long , I just wished it would stop messing up and taking forever to load. Please fix the app.
Keeps freezing 3/5
They have really good books in this app but every time I try to turn the page it starts to freeze so I have to exit out of the app and then wait 2 minutes to keep reading
Look I love Wattpad but it continues to crash when I’m online on any apple device
