User-friendly, interesting, but could improve.

I find this platform easy to use and nice compared to others. I am an avid ‘Wattpad’ fan, but lately with all the changes of premium and paying but only getting the first 5 chapters of a story, I was leading towards other platforms... and honestly, I’m impressed. The stories are interesting, compelling, and most importantly, varied.
I found that with ‘Wattpad’, nearly every single story had the same plot or the same lines. Which, is not the company’s fault, I just needed a change, and ‘Inkitt’ delivered that.

However, it could be improved in some ways (As is with any other app). For example, the beginning blurb/plot line, I feel should be where the book’s information is, like there should be a pop-up page when you click onto the book to tell you the blurb, ratings, etc...
Also, the tiny bit of information under the books should be longer and have more space instead of the ‘...’ at the end, after about two lines. It’s a bit off putting, and the author would have a lot more reads if they could put more information on about their story.

Despite this, ‘Inkitt’, is a user-friendly, dummie-compatible app, it’s nice to use and the books are interesting and varied. So, all in all; a good app, and worth your time.

Hi Cytherea! Thanks for the feedback. We'll definitely consider these points moving forward. Right now, the blurb can be read in italicized text right before the first chapter begins, but our tech team is looking into more options (and information) in future updates, so stay tuned. If you have any other concerns or questions, please let us know at OR use the Contact Support button in the app. Thanks!

It’s ok

For the first year or so using Inkitt it was quite good, I use wattpad but due to changes decided to try out Inkitt, some of the problems I had was were my books that I had saved were and I couldn’t figure out how to delete books. Whether that’s just my own stupidness or an actual issue I don’t know but apart from that it’s was good. But a couple of days ago I went onto the app to find all my stuff deleted and my account gone, it tried to log in again and it wasn’t working so I then tried to reset my password because maybe I had a different password that I just for got so it said that it sent the email, and I never got that email so I done it a couple of times and it wasn’t working my email is synced to my phone so every time I send or receive and email I get notified on my account but I received no email and when I tried to make a new account I used the same email but different password saved some of the books that I had lost and got off the app and carried on with my day but I go on again and the blank page, library and lists again. Honestly I liked this app but it’s really annoying and some of the books I can’t for the life of me remember the names but now I’ve lost that and to be honest it’s a bit sad and annoying because i really liked this app.

Great so far (Updated)

Admittedly, I downloaded this app yesterday, but it’s been great so far! From the reviews, I can see that the developers work fully on feedback, and I’m happy to know that this writing app is not practically a social network, since I just changed from another app.

However, the setting to write on the app isn’t available yet, so it’s quite a downside... :(
Also, I was thinking if you could let us add images on the stories? You see, I like adding aesthetics and such on my stories, so would that be okay? :D

Actually, my opinion has changed slightly. When I discussed this with my friends, we thought that some of the writing rules were a bit strict, such as acknowledgements and indentations. This is because hardcover books have these qualities, and we thought it would work well.
Writing via the app will definitely get you more users, so I support you thoroughly with that.
Also, I’ve had a change of heart in the adding photos bit—you see, they usually do distract people from writing. This app is stable, and really good for writers, which I know because quite a lot of people changed from WattPad, and I’m admittedly one of them.
I can tell this app will get successful, so good luck!

Hi there! While we don't have images in the stories at the moment, we will definitely be considering that for the future, as we continue to make improvements and changes. Also, the ability to write on a mobile device is coming soon, so stay tuned for updates. If you need anything else, feel free to reach out to us at
