I get my bearings and grab my glasses from the bedside table, glancing over to see Update’s snoozing face in full vision. I glance down at the small screen poking out from underneath my pillow.
23 New Emails. 6 Missed Calls.
“What the,” I mumble to myself, swiping the phone screen open with the tip of my thumb. It was all a collection of junk mail. Delete. I click into my voicemail, keying in my password and deleting junk message after junk message. Nothing important.
Update stirs beside me, rolling over and opening one eye, squinting at the brightness of my screen. He studies my furrowed brow. “What’s up, buttercup?”
Startled by the sudden break in silence, I toss my phone onto the bed. “Oh, nothing. Just a ton of messages about absolutely nothing important,” I say with a tired laugh, putting my head back down on my pillow to face him.
“Well, while you’re streamlining your email inbox, you can do the same on Wattpad now,” Update says through a yawn. My face clearly looks confused, because he continues.
“Now you can mute a Wattpadder to stop seeing their comments or public messages on stories,” Update says. “It just makes the Wattpad experience even more positive.”

Amazing. Just, amazing.
I’ve had this app for over two years now, and I haven’t thought to write a review until now. It has so many amazing books, some have been published as actual books, some just written for fun. You can completely enjoy it with some short adds or you can pay for premium and get no adds and a few different features. I’ve had it for so long, and sadly can’t do premium, even though it is pretty inexpensive; but it’s still an amazing experience. There are also some stories that you have to use coins for, and you can buy coins or get three a day by watching videos, and each chapter is three coins. There are so many more books that are completely free though, so paying isn’t required at all. I also love having the comments on each paragraph of the story and being able to share my thoughts and read others opinions on the books. The one and only complaint that I have is that there isn’t a feature to like a comment on a book. I’ve seen a few people who have the same problem, we don’t want to comment on something, we just want to let them know that their comment made us laugh. It’s a very small complaint though, and it doesn’t affect the experience on Wattpad. All in all, this app is great for exploring books, and writing as well. It’s very easy write and publish chapters and books on the app. It’s perfect for writers who just want to have some fun or who want to explore an interest in writing. Would 100% recommend this to all book lovers and writers.
curious? read this
alright, i’ve had this app since 2013 and let me start this review by saying it’s definitely not the same as the old version. the changes aren’t too bad, once you get used to the adds that pop up every so often when you’re reading a story. they can get annoying and more consistent the longer you read, but again, you get used to them after a while. if not, just pay for premium (i actually wouldn’t recommend getting premium unless you’re REALLY bothered by the adds).
overall this app is great. if you want to write a story, it’s not hard trying to figure out what specific buttons you’ve got to press in order to pick your story’s cover, select tags, add a new chapter and so on. i do have to warn you though, the app is known to crash when you’re in the middle of writing a chapter and deleting all of that progress you made, so be careful with that. getting your story views isn’t that difficult either, unless you’re a new author but even then your story will eventually get viewers.
wattpad’s also a great app to make friends and find mutuals too. over the years i’ve met a lot of nice people, and gotten myself more than a lot of followers. you don’t need followers though, you can simply use wattpad to read, find friends, or do your own thing. it doesn’t matter if you’re trying to find a story of a specific fandom/an original story, wattpad’s perfect to pass time. so yes, i recommend it, regardless of the few problems it has occasionally.
