Yarn a the worst

When I first got this app I thought it was amazing and just to add a lil details you if you read some of the story when that episode was finished you would have to wait but one time when I updated the app you were aloud to at least watch a video to go to the next episode (for free) I was so happy then one day I stopped playing , after awhile I thought I should play again I went back to the app I tried to see if I could watch a video to go to the next episode I could not find it.I personally find this disappointing but I was fine the wait was only 24 minutes (which is not so long) . So one time after I started playing again I was done waiting for the next episode,I tapped to continue but then I had to wait another 24 minutes so I decided to read different story. I tapped to read that story but it would not work I was confused and annoyed I thought it was my phone so I powered it off and after awhile i powered it back on went back to the app to see if it worked,it did not that’s how I knew there was something going on. I tried to call the people who run the app they said that the app was fine and to check my phone I said ok before i could cause any trouble. Now I cannot do anything at all with this app please be smart and do not download!!!!!!!!

I don’t know why the this app has all these good reviews, or why it's advertised all over Snapchat as "great great great"..... If I could give it zero stars I would. It's advertised like you don't have to pay anything to be able to use it and that's just a flat out lie. you get literally 10 "messages" (like lines from characters in a play) of ONE story for free, and then that’s it! And you don't even get to pick which story, it just asks you "steamy or scary" and then starts something random... So unless you want to pay five dollars a WEEK, you get nothing except an app that pops up with "pay us!!" Every time you click ANYTHING, you can't even navigate the app to see if there's anything worth paying the money for without paying.... Not to mention, that’s waaaay too much money for stupid fake text messages, especially when there is free stuff ALL OVER the internet. Heck, try reddit, there are whole forums dedicated to any genré of story you could want. And the quarter of the story I got wasn’t even anything entertaining... there were these pictures that were blurred out and you couldn’t view them without paying five bucks a picture.... No way... This app is a waste of space and energy. Don't waste your time.

Takes your money!!!

The app in itself isn’t the worst, it’s actually quite cool and enjoyable. My problem with it is that it charges people for a year long $70 subscription after a free week trial without much of a warning. Other free trial apps that lead to a subscription tend to give you a notification authorizing charges and even then the charge isn’t a year subscription for $70 maybe a month at most. This is especially unfair to families who may have young children downloading the app not realizing they’re charging money to their parents bank account or old people who aren’t familiar with the technology and get charged without being notified. And even if you don’t notice the charge in your bank account this could continue for years.. I don’t expect the app to do much about this problem, I’m sure they did it on purpose to profit off those who don’t pay super close attention to detail or are forgetful. PLEASE READ THE FINE TEXT AND KNOW WHAT YOU MAY GET YOURSELF INTO. I personally filed a claim against the transaction on my card this morning, I’m poor and don’t have $70 to just give out... I need to feed myself and family first.
