Become a beta reader!
You’ll get access to novels and stories before they’re published. We match you and a small, select group of readers to each story—all you have to do is read the ones you like!
Your feedback helps authors improve their work. We give them analytics on saves, opens, and drop-offs, so there’s no obligation to read or finish everything you get matched with.
Many of the stories you’ll see have already received high ratings from other readers. The rest are brand new, so you can be the first to discover the next great read!
Our magazine has a new look in time for our December issue!
We've also addressed an issue with push notifications opening stories and we've changed how we prompt for feedback when nearing the end of a novel.
Ratings and Reviews
Tinder for Readers
Literally exactly what you get. It’s tinder for readers - you pick what genres you like, swipe right on stories that interest you and left on ones that don’t, and that’s it. You pick the genres that most appeal to you and can block genres that don’t. Really fun app for writers and readers!
Easy to use
This app is easy to use...very well designed. I love the easy swiping to select stories. My hesitation in giving it 5 stars is that as a beta reader, there is no way to make notes along the way to make the feedback more useful. Questions came up while I read that I knew I would forget by the end. It feels more like a service to readers than writers (and their revenue model indicates that). I think there is room to balance that better. Quality feedback will attract quality content, a win-win for all.
Developer Response ,
Update: Highlighting and commenting while reading has now launched! You can select any part of a story and leave a comment directly to the author.
Thank you for sharing your feedback! We're excited to say highlighting (with notes) is coming in the next few weeks.
This app is so fun! I’ve already read a few short stories that were great, and just started reading a novel. It is AMAZING. I keep finding myself wanting to discuss it with friends, and then realize, it’s not even published yet!
