Love it and hate it

So, there’s two stories that I’m reading right now and I love them both. I don’t want to stop reading them, but using 12 gems to start the next chapter adds up quickly; especially if you want to also use some of the gem choices/decisions in the story. The best bet is to pay the frustrating $40 to subscribe but uggh i don’t want to. And waiting 4 hours to get 6 gems which you end up using in 1-2 choices makes it take forever to progress if you want to make the choices you want. So, uggh I will have to pay the 40 just to not frustrate myself while I’m stuck at home due to this stupid shelter in place virus mess. I’m sorry, it’s not the developers fault that I’m debating on spending on this story or food; at least it’s not toilet paper. I hope i don’t get laid off. I’m sleepy. It’s 1am.

Oh! And if you miss a check in, they don’t stack! So even if it’s been 8 hours, you still only get credit for 1 check in. I’m going to bed, and will re-evaluate my life tomorrow.

UPDATE! Few days later. I decided today that I’m going to subscribe because the addiction is real 😂 But noooooo, i don’t have the option anymore. All it shows is an option to buy 500 gems. Bring back the annual subscription please. Ugh😡

I would like to give this a better rating!

I found a several good stories on this app that are very amazing and well written so of course I would love to finish them. I also am aware that this is a business and everyone has to get paid including the authors. However do you really think that in the midst of a pandemic crisis and recession that people have the money to buy gems from at $2-$99?

It takes 12 gems just to open up a new episode which is really over the top... I think that watching a video to earn one gem is a great idea except that feature goes away every couple of hours and doesn’t stick.. What ever happened to a monthly subscription like every other story telling app like this one offers? I’d be willing to commit to 9.99 a month to gain full access to this app. Hopefully it gets better. I’ll keep this app installed to see if it gets better and more affordable for me.

Chapter releases & Gems

Honestly, this app has interesting and awesome stories. Enveloping you into the story and piquing you’re interest even more, to continue reading.

But, if a new book comes out, there should be an every week, new released chapter. For example, every Wednesday, 2 to 3 new chapters of the story will be released on every Wednesday. There should honestly be a deadline because there is one story that I know about (don’t know if there are other stories with authors that do the same as the one I’m trying to read) that I’ve been waiting weeks (about to be a month, no kidding) for a new chapter and nothing is released. I don’t want this app to lose customers because I honestly believe it’s such a good app with great stories, but to be completely upfront, that’s how you lose customers.
Hopefully, you guys can fix this. It would be much appreciated.
Also, the reduction of gems would be nice. There are some people who can’t really afford to buy gems because they don’t have enough money. So, please, reduce the amount of gems needed to be wasted for each chapter and each picture & video. Thank you so much for taking your time to read this and I hope you all take care.
