  • Good Concept, Bad Execution

    The concept is good—providing hard working authors with money for their time and effort. however, many apparent flaws come to light as you use the app. I understand the paying part, but for lightly edited amateur writing, it is far too overpriced. Now, some authors produce publishing quality work, and the some twenty dollars is reasonable (still expensive, but reasonable.) Some works, on ten other hand, are not. Some author don’t complete their works, yet you were forced to pay to read them (that is for premium works.) I feel that in order to qualify to be a premium (even freemium, although you can wait for that so it’s not necessary) your work has to be 1) complete, and 2) reviewed for quality. If any of these points are not fulfilled, the book is demoted to freemium. just a suggestion.

    I had an account and had bought over 200 coins. Now it's asking me to log on and it won't let me. I'm a little PO'd.

    I love this app very much, but for the past few months I have not been able to purchase coins like I use to. For some reason there is an error and my payments don’t through. I assume it’s a bug needing to be fixed since it has worked before.

    I use this app pretty much everyday and I see many other reviews saying how the money is an issue, but many stories out there are free, and some release a free chapter a week. Yes the updates aren’t always constant, but that’s not the fault of the app itself so I do think it gets unnecessary hate from that. I really only pay for stories that are complete or that I enjoy and I know the author is constant, such as the books in the “Storm and Silence” series. My advice is don’t spend money on a story if you’re going in blindly and not much info on the author. Focus mainly on free stories and high rated ones, because those tend to be well written and have frequent updates from the authors.

    I only read on this app for one author. I feel like a lot of the others give an uncommitted vibe so I don’t feel compelled to spend money on those other books. I also feel like there should be other ways to earn coins besides random giveaways and spending real money. Maybe being given a set amount of coins every month or so and then paying for additional coins is a better option because people are not going to be convinced to join this app especially when Wattpad + AO3 are free. But, MAJOR SHOUTOUT TO LOWRITES BECAUSE SHE IS INCREDIBLE
  • Cool concept. Not practical

    I think this app has tried offering a new way to pay authors which I support, but I don't think it works well with the authors using it. The authors on this app get uninterested in stories too easily and the 50 cents per chapter isn't really realistic. The average radish story is like 40+ chapters. That's over 20 dollars for a book with limited editing and ok concepts. Plus half the time the author doesn't even finish the book so you paid ten dollars for a half finished book. Maybe with a little tweaking this could be good, but right now it just doesn't work.
  • Get ready to pay big bucks for unfinished works

    I'm all for supporting authors but I am fed up with paying for chapters of books that never get updated or end up costing three times what a book should. You have no way to communicate with the authors and no recourse if you purchase chapters and the author decides not to post with the app anymore or loses interest in the story. I will not be buying any books that are not complete or have 40+ chapters.

    The only thing that bothers me is when I’m reading a story and exit out of it (not out of the app but the story I’m currently on) it doesn’t hold my spot on that specific chapter. So rather than starting where I left off it always starts in the beginning. It might just be me but I find it pretty annoying but other than that this app is great.

    Okay, so... I also learned about this app through an author on Wattpad, maybe it’s the same one who knows? I’ve spent SO MUCH MONEY on this application, it’s ridiculous. I loved his writing and his books and I have spent so much money. I get that authors have bills to pay and they need some way to get financial backing but it’s not fair to your loyal readers to have to pay per chapter. I’ve read two of his books and probably paid more in total than I really should for two books. It’s almost like they’re holding you hostage. Oh, you wanna read this book that I originally started on a website that I know was for free? Too bad, I changed my mind. It’s ridiculous. The format on the app is just as bad and there’s so many glitches it’s impossible.
  • Has some glitches but overall great app
