Hate The Beta Program

I used to love Wattpad. And I understand that they are trying to support writers and I think that’s very important, but it seems that lately everything that Wattpad was when I originally downloaded the app has gone in favour of money. I used this app because I could escape and not worry about money issues. Now, everything that I am interested in reading is denied to me because I can’t afford coins. And I know that there are still free books, but the way that they choose which books are free is if they’re not the best books- anything that gets any attention gets monetized. So the things with writing that doesn’t appeal to everyone or books that aren’t very popular don’t get any support, but the ones that are crazy popular and could probably be published in hard copy format cost money that not all of us can afford. Bring back the add format- Writers still got support, but no one is asked to spend money that they don’t have. The Wattpad beta program is awful. If I could give negative stars, I would.
