Sometimes staying the same is better 1/5
I was all for this app before there were video ads in between chapters. And now if i want to read offline i have to have premium ?! Yeah that inconvenient to me. Im not home a lot i like to read in the car or on the bus. This app used to be good for that. Now im annoyed.
Please don’t do the premium 2/5
I’ve been using this app for years now. I don’t mind the ads, but now that we have to pay premium for Wattpad offline is no cool. Wattpad Offline was genuinely my OG especially when I go on flights or roadtrips. This app used to be about letting people read and write stories and take it anywhere whether it be online or offline, but now it changed. Money is on their mind. I hope Wattpad sees this so they know that they changed and we don’t like it.
It's an awsome app but always freezes 1/5
I can't be on the app for more than 1-2 minutes without it freezing and it is quite annoying
Had it for a long time.... 4/5
I love Wattpad with a passion! I had it for almost 8 years now. I never had any problems with the app before, however, due to the new updates, it’s beginning to crash on my phone and I don’t know why. In order for me to read my stories, once it freezes, I have to exit out the app and reopen it and I have to keep doing it for every chapter. I love the app and hopefully, the glitches can get fixed soon!
I would have given five stars but. 1/5
Five months ago I would have given this app five stars without any problems but now the lag is too much. I can’t do anything without getting kicked out.
I have trouble because it freezes a lot and the home page doesn’t load says “Fail T Load”! You can’t do much anymore. It needs to get fix soon..
Please stop the crashing 3/5
I’ve been a Wattpad user for a while now and I’ve never run into the problem before. It all started when ‘Tap’ and advertisements were introduced. The app has stated randomly freezing, locking me out of all content and the ability to write. Along with freezing, the app will periodically crash and it takes a full reboot of my iPad to even use the app again. I’ve put up with it for a few months now hoping for an update to fix it, but with no luck. It kills me not the be able to give the app the 5 stars it deserves, but this really is a deal breaker. Please fix it as soon as you can because I don’t think I’m going to be able to go on using the app and will be forced to delete.
Once again FIX!!!! 2/5
Now I can't even write a comment now without seeing "user not logged in" I have to log in pretty much every day!! Come on please fix your stuff this is the nicest way I can ask....!
Latest update 5/5
I love Wattpad and I’ve been using it for many years. However after the latest update, the app freezes about 5 seconds after I get on it. Super inconvenient and makes it practically impossible to use the app. :(
By Sauce 21
I really love wattpad. It’s great for a variety of FanFictions, regular original stories, and so much more. It was definitely my go to app for reading but after the update I was so disappointed. I would have been willing to pay for wattpad but the price now is so extreme. Taking away the ability to read offline is a major bummer and frankly I barely touch the app now except for when I get updates. My school has terrible WiFi and no service, I live up in the mountains, so not being able to read is a major downfall. If you use wattpad mostly for FanFiction’s I would recommend FanFiction.Net which allows you to downloads stories on the app and receive updates plus no outrageous cost. It’s a shame because it’s such a good way for authors to get their names out their and with the price and all these premium ads in your face I can see it being used less and people being impacted by it.
I actually love this app but after the new update where you now need a premium account to access offline stories is a big disappointment. I loved when I would be able to read offline since I spend lots of days in the hospital or at different clinics but now I can read the stories in my library without a stable internet connection.
Steadily Declining 1/5
By Gaff juggernaut
Wattpad is steaming steadily downhill, barraging its users with excessive ads, freezing and crashing during use, and now, for several days, anything I have posted disappeared in a matter of minutes. I have lost an entire work to this, and am now hesitant to add any new chapters to my previous works. I hope that either this company gets itself together, or that a worthy competitor will arise so I can take my writing elsewhere. After writing my first novel there, being part of the community there, and now feeling more than frustrated there, I’m ready to say goodbye to Wattpad.
Love the app but.... 1/5
Why does it just freeze after scrolling? Annoying af
Glitches are really bad 4/5
I can’t go 2 minutes without it glitching and freezing up. I have to completely close the app and get back on it and that only works for a couple minutes until I have to repeat it. I repeat this process more than 20 times a day.
Seriously!? Just disappointed 4/5
By Riker Bantry
Ok, so I have LOVED Wattpad forever! But seriously? Premium?! Like honestly...I have an iPad and lived how I could read everywhere without wifi! But now I have to have premium to read without wifi!! I am so ticked off! I still love Wattpad forever but really? We loved u but now ur trying to rip us off! I thought u were better than that.
What Happened 2/5
Recently, Wattpad has not been my favorite app. Now with this new update I can’t access stories in my library without internet access. I have been using Wattpad for 4 years but this new stuff is making me want to delete the app. Please fix this I would really hate to find another app because there are some amazing books on Wattpad.
Wattpad... what happened?! 1/5
I’ve had Wattpad for over two years now. My most popular book has over 50k reads! I’ve been in love with the app and it’s freedom. However, I just noticed recently something that bugs me. One of my online friends asked me to log onto her account that she just created to help her fix and add some things to her first book. I decided to look at her library, which she only had one book in, which was one of mine. I tapped on the book to read it and just relive memories, but even though I was online, it was telling me to become a member of something to get all offline features! Now big deal, I just closed the app and opened it back up and it was working normally, but when I finished reading the chapter and wanted to look at the comments, IT GAVE ME AN AD! WHAT?! IVE NEVER SEEN ANY OF THIS BEFORE! I’ve been on Wattpad for AT LEAST two years and the reason I loved it so much is because it was completely free! I have no idea how long this membership has been offered, but I am NOT paying! I’m still in Middle school and my family doesn’t have a lot of money, but I don’t want to deal with ADS! CHANGE... IT... BACK! #nomorememberships!
By Mikaelson girl
I love this app from all my heart but it crashes a lot like a lot in my new phone and I use it a lot so if you can fix it I would be grateful
Offline subscription 2/5
I love reading books on Wattpad and I am usually offline because of reasons when I’m on Wattpad and having to pay to be offline and read really kills for me because then I can’t read any of my favorite books on road trips or any other place...I don’t think that was necessary
This update ugh! 3/5
By emma brookshire
This update will not let me open the app... I'm getting frustrated because I have a story that I need to update...Can you fix it soon?
A Few Suggestions. 5/5
In my personal opinion, I think Wattpad is an amazing app to express you’re love of writing and reading. I do wish that there was an option for collaborations in writing and when a story is mature, the warning should be a slight bit bigger. I understand the warning is labeled underneath the description of the story, but it would be even better if the warning was prompted right before you started the story. Anyways, love this app, and will continue to use it.
App Keeps Freezing 1/5
Normally, I would say that Wattpad is a great way to read. But as of not Wattpad is a nightmare. The app freezes all the time and it has loads of glitches. Also, since I just recently updated to the newest update. It has gotten worse, now I can’t read any books that have been updated. I can’t see my notifications because the minute I tap on a notification it just freezes and then I have to force quit the app. Please fix it otherwise a lot of people who are complaining about it and will probably just ditch it completely if it’s not resolved.
UPDATE// I give up on Wattpad. I want to read another book but the app just lags all the time. Stop adding stuff to premium and fix it for the rest of us. Otherwise there won’t be anyone to use the premium.
The latest update now force a user to pay, to read stories offline, even when the book is in my library. Being online can drain a battery and hard for a person who travels a lot.
Please do something 1/5
Wattpad is a great app but I’m tired of the ads and the updates are no better. I’ve been a member since 2012 and I’m getting disappointed each time I’m on wattpad. I don’t want to pay for premium because I didn’t have to at first. I enjoyed my free range of books but now i feel like I’m reading the same thing all over again. Right now I’m trying to get on wattpad and it’s not even loading, is the site down or something?
Its a really great app 5/5
I really like the app but it would be better if it stopped freezing and lagging all the time
WHY WATTPAD?! HOW COULD YOU! 1/5
I have used WATTPAD for YEARS and I love the app! But with the recent update WattPad doesn’t allow me to read books offline unless I sign up for the premium. I’m so upset at WattPad... I’m heartbroken. Please fix this to how it was before. I have an iPod and when using WattPad I add stories to my library and then read them offline at school or when I’m on a field trip. Please make it to how it was before! PLEASE! T^T
Used to be amazing 1/5
This used to be my favorite app but now since the new update u can’t even read books offline anymore without paying🙄🙄 so unless the developers take the new update off I will keep this one star right where it belongs🤷🏾♀️
App keeps crashing every time! 2/5
I love watt pad, and have been using it everyday for the past couple of years to read. Recently I’ve been experiencing the app freezing when I’m trying to swipe to the next chapter, or when I try to do anything really. I constantly have to uninstall and reinstall the app to get it to work momentarily, but it keeps happening. And it’s not my phone either, everything on my phone functions normally. It’s just the app. Please fix this in the next update!
this app used to be a good a few years ago when there wasn’t any ads or promotions. I don’t personally mind the ads now, but now everything you have to pay money for, including reading offline which was really the one good thing. The app constantly freezes up and there’s ads everywhere. I can’t swipe without accidentally clicking on an ad and getting redirected. So mad that you took out the offline reading option. The only thing you want is money. Hating this app now
Please fix more things 4/5
I’ve had Wattpad for almost 3 years now, and it’s one of my favorite apps. For the past couple of months, Wattpad has been freezing up on me. For example, i can casually read a story and when I scroll it gets slow and freezes. I’ve had to delete and reinstall at least 15 times throughout those months. I enjoy the fact that Wattpad team is making the app look better but not act better. Please do something about this because a lot of users are upset with this.
Commenting/ Log in 2/5
I love Wattpad, ive been using it for years. Way back when we had all those fancy fonts you could choose... But i must admit that this new update had ruined my wattpad experience for the time being. I hope you all fix it!
The problem: In order to comment, i must log out and log back in! This is horrible and makes me not want to comment which makes me not want to use wattpad! Wattpad is like a way to connect to people throughout the world through books and comments... Please fix this issue! Its tearing me down, i love reading and writing on here!!
Passcode lock 5/5
PLS GIVE US A PASSCODE LOCK
Wattpad is literally getting worse with every update 1/5
I have reviewed countless times and almost every—if not every—I’ve had to leave a low rating. That’s how bad this app is. I love writing on there, but as of late, I have been considering leaving wattpad all together. It glitches half of the time and others, it takes hours just to post one small chapter. HOURS. It should not take that long for 2,000 words to go up, especially with how it used to work. I’d honestly be surprised if I was told that it wasn’t someone’s butthole updating the app, considering how horrible it is now.
I’m beginning to wonder if wattpad intentionally make the app worse and worse as time goes on. I have to uninstall and reinstall the app at least twice a day. Would delete for good if it weren’t for the people who read my stuff.
Reading while offline 1/5
By Reishii likes pasta
I love this app and I use it to upload my stories that I make and I love reading but I think it’s stupid that you are going to make me pay to read stories while offline and not connected to WiFi. I’ve happily read stories with no issue before when I’m not home and off WiFi and now all of a sudden I can’t do that anymore?? I think it’s ridiculous. This used to be a free app where everyone could read and upload stories and enjoy it and now you’re trying to make profit any way you can. I can understand the ads and how if you don’t want ads to go premium but I don’t like the fact you can’t read stories offline without being premium. I don’t know if I’m the only one complaining about it but I don’t like it.
This app freezes like this a game of Simon says 🙄🙄🤬😡😑😑😑
Great but... 5/5
It's really a great app if you ask me, but I usually do multi-tasking on my iPad and the wattpad app doesn’t have the split screen view, that’s all! Over all this app is magnificent! I just can’t buy the books here in America.
Used to be good but... 1/5
I’ve been reading on the Wattpad app for around five years now and have never had this problem until now. I cannot read on the app anymore because it lags so bad. I can’t even turn a page in my book without it freezing up then eventually just kicking me out of the app. It’s super frustrating.I’m still able to read through safari but I really prefer the app 😕.
I love this app it’s one of my favorites. But it keeps wanting to freeze up and not wanting to work!
glitches with the new update 2/5
By Dean Morris
every time i open my app, it says it failed to load home. and when i go to browse and click on a category, it fails to load. i hope it gets fixed, i love using this app and would like to go back to reading soon.
This is ridiculous 1/5
So I’ve been reading all of the reviews and I’m starting to think that this is a bug you guys planted (Wattpad). I believe that if I were paying for premium I wouldn’t be experiencing the lagging, screen freezes or the immediate close outs. Honestly this is ridiculous this app started off as a free application that allowed readers to enjoy a story all while supporting the writers. I understand that the point of premium is to pay the writers but sooner or later readers are going to start leaving because of the way the app is functioning!
Now I have to pay to read my stories online?! Since when? See it’s crap like thIs that makes the premium option seem less and less enjoyable. How could you do that? Just screw us over like that?! I am utterly appalled at your behavior. Please don’t make it so that writers and readers have to buy the premium. That’s just not fair.
I love Wattpad and I enjoy reading stories from young authors, but it’s clear that I can’t read any of the stories without it freezing every five minutes. I would love for you guys to fix this issue, because even after updating, it’s still freezing constantly.
Fix it 4/5
By Fix this ASAP 😒
I love Wattpad I’ve been on the app for 4 or 5 years but why do we have to pay to read the books we have saved in our library offline I’m not understanding that it’s just not right I come to Wattpad all I see are ads asking to watch a video for the author which is fine but now this paying to read books offline Wattpad your messing up now you was just doing good.
Glitches+glitches=horrible experience 1/5
For some reason the app freezes on my iPhone and ITS SO FRUSTRATING. I SO THINK ITS TIME I START USING RADISH A FRIEND RECOMMENDED IT
Good but.... 3/5
By Book Lover 10
So I really like this app. It got me into writing stories but there are a few problems.
The first problem being that I can’t notify my followers. The app tells me that I need to verify my email and so it is supposed to send me a verification code to my email (which I checked to make sure I put it in correctly) and it doesn’t send. I have tried to do this multiple times but it doesn’t work.
Next it tells me that I have to pay to read things from my library when I’m offline. It wasn’t like that before and it made me mad that I have to pay for something I didn’t originally have to pay for.
Bug Fixes 2/5
I have had this problem where the whole app freezes like over and over again and i exit the app and the same stuff happens. im so over it honestly
my fave 5/5
this is one of my fave reading apps! it lets me get out of my comfort zone and lets me be me
By Shawn lover❤️❤️
Look don’t get me wrong the app is great but what I don’t like is when I’m trying to read a chapter it takes me to the App Store and if I go back to wattpad it takes me back to the App Store and it is really annoying and I don’t like it but the app is great just that problem I have
Wattpad WAS great. 2/5
Now most of the authors want you to download either radish or inkitt to read the stories they started on WattPad.
It gets annoying to get really into a story only for it to be paused indefinitely because the authors are choosing to finish the book elsewhere.
I thought that it was great until they put in premium making you have to pay for offline mode now. Wattpad was my favorite app and I thought it was awesome because you could read stories off line, but now I have to use my data and I don’t have much left anymore
