- Bonus Coins: Wattpad Premium subscribers now get up to 66% more Wattpad Coins when purchasing any Wattpad Coin package.
- The 2019 Watty Awards are now closed.
The sweet smell of cotton candy hovering in the air can only mean one thing: The fair is in town. I text Update immediately and we agree to meet there. First stop: Games.
“I’m going to win you the cutest teddy bear this town has ever seen,” Update proclaims, as he saunters towards the ring toss tent.
After the game master goes over the rules, Update throws his first ring and misses. He takes the next ring and misses again. With his final ring in his hand, Update cranes his head to one side and then the other, takes a deep breath, and tosses. The ring lands on the peg. I clap with glee at the perfect toss.
“Good shot, fella, but you need to get two rings to win a prize,” the game master gently points out. But after a beat, he says, “I tell you what, I’m going to give you a bonus shot”.
At that Update perks right up, takes the final shot, and lands the ring on the peg.
“Victory!” Update shouts. “Now I know how Premium subscribers must feel when they purchase any Wattpad Coin package.” The game master and I look at each other in confusion. Update elaborates, “Premium subscribers can now access bonus Coins with every purchase of any Wattpad Coin package. Pretty swell, hunh?”.
“You know I love a good Wattpad Update, but can I pleasssse have my teddy bear now?” I ask playfully.
Ratings and Reviews
This app has everything for a reader or writers needs!! You can write all your stories, with as many chapters as you want!! You can also create your own cover for your book as well.
The writing portion of the app is very simple to use. With the ability to add videos or pictures at the top of each chapter, you can give the readers a better picture of your story, and they have the tools you see on any writing software. From which side you want to write on, to italics, bold, or underlined.
For the readers, there are many genres to choose from!! Fantasy, Fanfiction, etc. it your choice. you can also change the font style, color of the page and, size of the font for you various needs. You also have a personal library that no one can see except you! So you can organize your books in any way, but, when you read a book it appears at the top of your library as your recently read.
You can also make reading lists on your profile for others to enjoy. If a book isn’t finished writing, the notifications for when the author updated the book, are straight forward, they tell you when they updated and what chapter they updated, so you don’t have to look or reread to make sure your not reading the same chapter twice.
I love this app, and I hope if you haven’t tried it, you should!!!
An Irritating Issue
Hey Wattpad! I've been using your app for a year now, and I loved it until you removed the one thing that I needed most when using this app; the activity icon. Whenever I forgot to save a book to my library, I would go back and look at my activity to see my comment on the book and add it so I wouldn’t lose it again. It really came in handy, and I did see the post made about trying to make it safer for uncomfortable readers and authors who are afraid of being exposed with their feed. Though, I think it would be better if you let the person see THEIR feed, and nobody else’s. Now, I see how this may not be needed, but I assure you it’s important to me and many others. Just today, I forgot to save one of my favorite books to my library, though I didn’t feel the need to since I was not going to be clicking off the book, and since it just brought me back to the book whenever it was off the app. Please, I’ve been looking for the book everywhere, and I know I’ve left a lot of comments on it, MY comments which I can’t even view. I can’t even remember the name or what tags the book had, so please if this ever happens again, if I forget, I want something that will help me make sure that I can find it again. Thank you.
Wattpad: Why Change is Needed
Wattpad has been on every handheld device I’ve owned since I created an account five years ago. I can honestly say that this app was my favorite app hands down until recently. Yes, I still love and use Wattpad but I don’t spend nearly as much time reading on there as I used to. This is due to the ads and the update with premium accounts. I don’t mind ads at all as that is how apps are kept free but it seems like I get an ad after every single chapter and I’m constantly asked to go premium. With the change of the logo recently as well, I feel Wattpad is in a different place than it was when I joined 5 years ago but not in a good way. We need to move forward but not so much so that it becomes an entirely different thing. There have always been ads and I don’t expect ads to be wiped out completely but it is ridiculous how often they pop up, I also find it quite obnoxious that I am asked to go premium every single time I open the app. It is safe to say that Wattpad has become more of a money making operation than one that values its writers and readers. I don’t think it is much to ask to reduce the amount of ads a little bit and try to make the app about the people using it again. I’m still going to use this app but I have resorted to other FanFiction websites and apps as it is not nearly as enjoyable as it used to be. I do hope you can take both our opinions into consideration more directly. Thank you.
