Ratings and ReviewsSee All
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.
Total Scam If You Ask Me
You could watch more of the shows from the app on ads than you can watch in the actual app without a subscription. I decided to download the app (again from 2 years ago, it looked like it had improved [it hadnt]) was forced to choose between romance and horror (okay whatever) chose romance and immediately it started playing Trevor and the Virgin (without my permission) WITHOUT A BACK BUTTON OR AN ESCAPE BUTTON and then not even FIFTEEN SECONDS pass and it says “you have to wait 5 minutes to resume the show or purchase the full version. Like what? How am I supposed to even know I want to watch the show in a 15 second blip? I have literally seen longer clips of the show from AN ADVERTISEMENT than I got to see on the actual app. They shouldn’t even waste their time making a “free” version at this point. Just tell people it costs money instead of making them so angry from the interruptions and lack of choice that they either delete the app or angrily purchase it. Terrible setup and I would not recommend to anyone. The only reason this app even has positive ratings is probably because the app said “give us a 5 star rating and we’ll remove your wait time for one time only.” Bologna if you ask me. This app actually got worse. At least I used to get to click through a minutes worth of texting before the ad popped up. Worst app in the history of apps. Don’t corner people, Hooked. It’s lame.
Don’t Waste Your Money
This review will be updated pending a response from customer support.
The ads are so misleading. I got this app on a whim, watched a couple videos and realized it was stupid. The content is targeted towards an immature preteen audience and the plot lines of every story were annoyingly cliche and cringey. The app had very limited selection of content for each genre and only a few videos for each, the rest were all audio. Just get an actually interesting audiobook from the library for free people! So I deleted the app. Unbeknownst to me, I was automatically subscribed and was being charged EVERY WEEK. I happened to stumble upon the information in my settings just by chance. I don’t even splurge on a Netflix subscription, which is so much better and is way cheaper ($5 every week for an extremely limited selection of content aimed at a very specific audience?? And if I recall, the app still had ads on top of that. Get over yourselves developers.) I wish I’d gotten at least some kind of notification that I was being charged. Even Netflix has the courtesy to send out email reminders before a trial ends and a subscription renews so you can cancel if you don’t want to pay. I contacted costumer support and explained this, so I’ll remove this if they work with me. But as of right now I’m really annoyed I wasted money on nothing.
