Ratings and Reviews
Okay, I just wanna start out by saying this app was in my ads almost daily. I thought about downloading it multiple times, but figured I wouldn't have much time to read anyway. Finally, I was convinced & decided i'd try it. I loved it at first, and by "at first", i mean the first 3 minutes. Then, out of no where, the app crashed. I waited a minute & got back on, & was getting into the story(which btw, i think the story was very entertaining & well written), then it crashed again. After 3 more times of that I was done with it. Also, I don't like how you have to wait 15 minutes randomly throughout. What is the point of that? I read for 2 minutes & have to stop in the middle of it for a 15 minute intermission? I'm suppose to stop in the middle of reading to be told that I can buy a 15 dollar subscription if I don't wanna wait 15 minutes every 2 minutes to continue my story? No thanks! Do you even know how long it took me to get to the 15 minute intermission mark without the app crashing a million times!? I get the app has to make money. Which is why not seeing the images dosen't bother me or other little things like that. I mean you could change it to where you have to be a member to write stories, see images, choose your own stories, things like that. Honestly, the stories are so good, people might actually not mind paying! But to stop the story every 2 minutes seems selfish & frankly, annoying. Theres plenty more reading apps, I can just download one of those.
I had at first deleted the app about 2-3 years ago since it was boring and I didn’t like how you had to pay to see the pictures. No biggie. I then repeatedly see a bunch of ads specifically about “Trevor and the Virgin” and all the ones about the whole “don’t let mom in” and “grab the mysterious shotgun that you never knew about”. I got curious and decided, “hey. Some of the stories look cool.” So I downloaded it and it asks me if I want to choose between TWO genres of stories: horror or romance. Keep in mind it’s almost 4 am and I really don’t want to be reading horror right now and I’m not in the mood for romance so I HAVE to choose one of them. I decide romance and I was getting ready to pick my story that I was going to read. I get in he app and it instantly puts me in some video. I was watching Trevor and the Virgin. Not the best choice but whatever. Literally 8 seconds in it says “You can either wait 15 minutes or pay $7-8 a month with a thirty day free trial.” I’m not waiting FIFTEEN MINUTES to watch a FIFTEEN MINUTE VIDEO. I don’t see the point in that. I really think that you should be allowed to pick what you want to read and have more options for the different types of genres. Sure, horror and romance probably are the most popular but not EVERYONE likes it. I also think that the whole fifteen minute wait time or pay up is absurd.
Why the 15 minute break?
I have several complaints about this app. First of all, you only get to view the story for like 2 minutes. After around two minutes, you have to wait FIFTEEN to be able to read again. Also, to skip the break, you have to purchase a membership. I am NOT such a big fan of that. Please either decrease the duration of the break or just get rid of it as a whole. Secondly, you have to get the full version to view the pictures, and that's around $11. Seriously, $11 just to view pictures? I WILL NOT accept that. Decrease the price of the full version, please, and allow everyone to see the pictures without purchasing the full version. Third and foremost, the text messages appear too slowly. This means that instead of viewing like 2 minutes of texts, I'm looking at around 1:40. Please increase the pace at which the text messages appear.
Short summary: I have several complaints. First of all, you only get to view the story for 2 minutes, then it's a 15 minute break. To skip the break, you have to purchase a membership. Secondly, you have to purchase the full version to view pictures, and the full version is around $11, which I WILL NOT accept. Third, the messages appear too slowly, decreasing the amount of messages that I could potentially view.
