Why so expensive? Where are my gems going??

12 gems per chapter is too much considering it would take 8 hours to gain that many without paying. I wish the clock auto reset after 4 hours if you don’t check in. Also, I’ll watch videos to earn gems and they don’t stick! The app will say I don’t have enough when I do and if I close out of the app and go back in the gem I’ve earned just disappears. It’s also hard to exit a story sometimes. It won’t allow me to hit any of the top buttons and I have to force the app closed. The pictures you pay for are obviously not made for the story you’re reading and rather stock photos that are applied accordingly. One time the photo was intended to be someone’s home but was really a picture of the inside of a furniture store with random pieces of furniture everywhere including a bed right next to what would be a living room. I like the app but I know I’ll get frustrated and delete it eventually.

Don’t bother...

I’ve been using Episodes & Dreame to read before bed. I came across this app in a Facebook post, and thought I’d try it, as the story in the post caught my attention. It didn’t bother me too much in the beginning, to wait the 4 hours for gems. Then, I found that it doesn’t refresh when you miss that 4 hour mark. Therefore, wait 24 hours, and you only get the gems for 4 hours. Seemed like a pain, but could tolerate. Until last night, when I’d taken the time throughout the afternoon evening to check in/collect gems when I saw it on my notifications. After reading a bit, the baby stirred, so I left the app and tended to him. Once I came back, it showed 30 gems (which would’ve been correct) but it was frozen. When refreshed, it stated 1 gem. There’s no way in the app or anywhere I’ve found to contact support. I’ve bought gems a couple of times in my other apps, but I refuse to, in an app where they basically try to force you to buy them, or have no support system in place for glitches or issues. While I’m already into this story that I downloaded the app for, I’ll keep it and read until I’m done, then the app will be deleted. It’s too bad, really. Has some interesting stories, and I realize that it provides these writers a way to get their stories out, but this app is not the way. When you find an app that makes it difficult to contact support when/if it’s needed, it’s best to leave that app alone, and find another. I’ll be checking from now on.

Only 1 Con 💗

I love this app so much! I always use time calculators to calculate my next gem bonus. It’s a great way to always be on time if I don’t see the notification. The first story I read was “Eyes For my Stepbrother” and I can’t get enough of it. I love all of the stories in this app but the one con is that you need gems to read the next chapter of the story, even the novels! I used around 17 dollars on this app buying gems to try and complete stories. It was sort of worth it, the gems went down quickly. It is my fault though. I’m always sad when the chapter I’m on ends and I have insufficient gems to buy the next chapter. Therefore, I find a different story to read and spend my gems on. This is a problem because I try to only focus on one specific story to spend gems on then when I’m finished I can focus on another one. Unfortunately, I get too bored and spend them on another story. This stops me from buying the next chapter in the specific story I’m trying to finish because I can’t complete it if I don’t even have enough gems to buy the next chapter since I always spend them on other stories. I still rate this a 5/5 because I’m so invested in the stories. I just wish you didn’t need to spend your hard work to buy a chapter... would recommend if you like reading and plot twists.
