Never be bored again. Shortz are intriguing, suspenseful pieces of chat fiction, told as a series of text messages between characters. Some are scary horror stories. Some are sexy romance stories. All of them grab your attention and make you need to know how they end.

Read them while you wait in line, or for a friend to show up. Just be prepared for strangers to wonder why you're laughing (or shrieking).

You can read the first episode of every story absolutely free to see how they grab you, then sign up for a free three-day trial to find out how they end. New episodes are added multiple times a week, and they're always as close as your phone.

Prepare to get addicted.

An App that sounded good completely turned bad

I should of know this app wasn’t gonna be as easy as read some awesome stories. Nope they had to go and throw in an actual subscription for every week. Not everyone is made of money and can afford to pay for a subscription every week when they have bills to worry about. Let me know when the false advertising gets fixed for needing a subscription. A complete waste of my time. 😡😡😡🤦‍♀️
