Take a universe of interactive stories with you.
The world tells its stories in many wonderful ways, and Tap by Wattpad is where you’ll find immersive, interactive storytelling. Tap stories mashup mixed-medium storytelling and choose-your-own-ending twists, pulling you deeper into each story with every ‘tap’. The result? interactive stories you won’t want to put down.
With Tap, you’re the main character of your favorite stories. In Daughter of the Night, find yourself drawn into the morally ambiguous world of vampires. In Marie Kondo-inspired story Tidying Up the Universe you’ll decide: what parts of the universe will spark joy or which will you thank, then destroy? And in A Royal Deception, go undercover as a princess to seduce a prince long enough for him to lose his throne… Tap stories use animated text, choices, video, chat messages, and stunning imagery to create a world of mobile stories that captivate.

Ratings and Reviews
I am an avid wattpad user and I absolutely adore the app. I had been really hyped for the Tap app, but when I got it... well, it wasn’t as great as I thought it would be.
First off, I’m not paying for extra features, so I do not get to see images, listen to videos, or choose alternate endings. However, because I’m not paying, I. Can’t. Choose.
Once you’re in a story, there is no home button. That was something I immediately noticed.
When it really became a problem was when I was in a story and had to choose between two options. When I clicked either one of them, a banner advertising premium popped up, saying I couldn’t choose unless I got it.
I tried to get out to the main menu, but nothing worked.
The only way to get out of a story is to complete it, so if you don’t like the story or you don’t have Premium, sorry. There’s no way out.
I had to redownload the app to my phone.
I’d like to see a feature where we can watch ads to unlock more taps, or stories, or see images. I understand the creators need to make money, but if there are advertisements, the people behind them have to pay for them to be on the app and the creators will be making money.
Premium would be cheaper but still better as you wouldn’t have to watch an ad for everything. Perhaps there could be a limit to ads each hour/day?
Also, please. Make a home button! (Or at least notify us if it is an alternate ending story so we won’t make the mistake of clicking on it).
So Bad DO NOT GET
Okay so I saw this app and thought ‘this is gonna be so good, plus its by Wattpad so huge plus’ but no it was all LIES and DISAPPOINTMENTS. The add I saw for it looked really good, so I tapped it and got the app-when It FINALLY downloaded not only was it REALLY slow, but there was not exit button on the story. I thought it was weird but didn't linger on it because I thought I was about to read and awesome story. Im probably about 15 taps in before it presents me with a choice, in which I could not skip-and I couldn't leave the story-but I had to get premium to select a choice. But I cant because money doesn't grow on trees. I understand the ‘you have yo wait 30 minuets’ thing because otherwise there would be no need for a premium and nothing would be gained from the app by the developer, but dont present the app with all those premium things that we average people cant get. At the very least give me an exit button.
This app was not at all thought out well. There are so many flaws with it. Plus in some of the other comments, I saw something about needing to read some horror story beforehand-not everyone can read horror stories. As a kid I couldn't even watch/read Goosebumps without having bad nightmares. This could be a great app, it just need A LOT of work. A LOT.
I don’t know how else to describe this app in one word other than disappointing.
I was so excited to download this app; to read stories and to make some of my own. But when you first download the app, it makes you click through a boring story about some murderer girl. That’s not what I want to read! I came to pick my own stories. I figured it was a tutorial and kept going. However, I found that it only got worse from there. It’s not just a tutorial, for one thing. It counts as the first story you read. You have to pay for pictures, video calls, voice notes; pretty much everything that makes the story interesting. And while reading the boring pre-story, you only get 20 taps before you have to wait 30 minutes to tap again, to finish a story you didn’t even get to choose to read! Not to mention, the premium is EXPENSIVE. It’s like Wattpad is trying to burn holes through your pockets. First Wattpad premium, now this fail. It’s disgusting to even think about.
In short, this app is a waste of time. I can’t even make my own stories! It’s honestly so boring with all the limitations and I will laugh hysterically if I hear that anyone actually paid for this garbage. This is one costumer you won’t be luring in, “Tap.”
