Ratings and Reviews
My favorite app!
Most of the stories are top quality. So many genres catering to different tastes, it’s amazing; truly something for everyone! I found that in many stories the choices really matter; it’s thrilling. They even have a number of stories with male MCs, and it’s growing. You absolutely can enjoy the stories even without having to spend gems (I use mine on my favorite stories or to tip the author). The key situation at the moment is horrendous, though. 😂 I’m a binge reader, so I definitely buy keys, but it would be sweet to have a way to earn them with watching ads. Log in every day and collect keys and then binge! Meanwhile, there are a LOT of fantastic stories that don’t need ANY keys! Search for “free” with the search option.
This app is so underrated! The stories are amazing, great mc’s that have an actual character growth unlike other interactive story apps on here and visually appealing. It also has all types of genres. For once the storylines on here makes me want to read more. The only thing I would say the downside to it is the updates. There are wonderful stories on here, that still need to be continued. It has taken ages for the authors to update them. I’m talking about months and months. For what’s it worth though, the app is still amazing. Hope it gets the recognization it deserves and maybe they will get authors who are a bit more consistent.

We're hard at work getting all your favorite series finished! Check in again, you might be surprised.
not suited for people who like to binge read
I love the concept of this app & it had me hooked until I went to bed at around 1am and it showed that I would get a key in 2 hours then I wake up this morning at around 10am and its showing I now wont get the key for 17 hours lol. 24 hours for one key is a little ridiculous & I understand that there are free books but their aren’t that many and the majority of them aren’t completed. I really enjoyed the app but only being able to make it the first chapter of a story then only being able to read one chapter per story per day (unless you purchase more keys) isn’t something I’d like to do. like I said the concept was cool and alot of the stories and writing are amazing but that key system is a little outrageous lol

We appreciate the feedback! At the moment, we only release one key every 24 hours to get readers to subscribe to the stories they love (thereby supporting the amazing creators behind them!). The good news is, we're working to bring back ways for readers to earn free keys. We would encourage you to follow us on Instagram @talesfiction - that is where we will be posting any announcements! If you're still encountering issues with your keys not being released on time or in the right amount, please send us your account details at email@example.com so we can fix it!
