I think this app is the best ever. I only wish they would let you upload stories from your kindle to it. But for people who say it sucks you have to understand that these are acutal people writing stories for you to read. if you don't like don't download!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great place for new and upcoming writers May 5, 2011

The variety is good. This allows you to read a yet unknown writers work. Some really good stories and talented people out there. Wish there was a que where can put favorite writers so that could read new work from writer as it comes in. There are some unfinished stories that I would really like to read more on.

5.0 out of 5 stars I love this. November 22, 2012
By Deidre

This receives five stars from me. I love wattpad and I have found some fantastic stories that would make a lot of money if ever published. This app is for books on wattpad ONLY. Don't expect to find books by known authors. For the people who think this app is horrible I disagree. This app lets you take all your favorite books with you and you are able to read them even if you don't have internet connections.

This is really brillant, such a lovely idea.
For people that are interested in learning how to upload their stories...Wattpad has a book you can download: "WATTPAD FOR DUMMIES". It not only shows you how to create stories and how to Upload them, but it teaches you everything you might need to know regarding your account. I know this is going to be really useful to a lot of people, because it even shows you how to make your Story available outside Wattpad that you want to Upload for others to read.

Personally I think Wattpad is doing a terrific job because I have found some really good reads on here, but there are some that can't write at all unfortunately. These are quite often just normal people that have never written a story before and you can even get notified via Email as when your Favourite Author has uploaded any new stories or chapters that you are reading.

You don't even need to open an account with Wattpad to read stories, but you do if you want to upload your own story and you can even connect other accounts to Wattpad; Facebook. Twitter.

I have had the App for a number of months now but you can also read the stories on line: Wattpad.com

Plus Wattpad is available in other Languages, not just English. I most certainly can recommend Wattpad.

***Wattpad describes itself as "the best place to discover and share stories." It's a YouTube for electronic text stories. The content includes work by undiscovered and published writers. Delivery emphasizes the mobile phone platform, using the free Freda ebook reader. According to Wattpad founder and CEO Ivan Yuen, "marketers can currently upload material for reading by mobile users at no charge".

I love this app. My Kindle Fire is portable, so I can just take it anywhere when I want to read, instead of going on the computer. I had difficulty figuring things out at first, but now it's a breeze! I love this app, and I totally recommend it fir people who love to read like me!
