Can we please get a version where we can activate push notifications for people commenting on our stories or giving reviews? It’s really annoying to have to go into the app or website each time and then have like 50 new notifications...

I have checked on my phone’s settings, there is no push notifications to activate for Inkitt...

Developer Response ,

Hi there! If you activate push notifications in your phone's settings, you will get notifications to let you know when this happens :)

Best reading app!!

I’m someone who is constantly reading at every given opportunity and free minute. I used to use Wattpad before since it was the most convenient app out there, but with the recent feature that limits the offline book count unless the Premium version is bought, my thoughts have now changed.

I can say without a doubt that Inkitt is the best reading app that allows readers to read offline books unlimitedly. And extreme praise to the developers of this app for not being deluded by money making schemes. I have definitely recommended this app to all of my friends and fellow books worms!

5/5 would recommend to others!

The books I’ve read are all grammatically correct, have a normal plot line and have a professional finish. I would definitely recommend this app to any bookworm with the promise that you will enjoy every book you read. The interface is easy to navigate and the settings make sense. The app remembers where you last stopped which is a great feature.

Overall great app!!
