So Bad DO NOT GET
Okay so I saw this app and thought ‘this is gonna be so good, plus its by Wattpad so huge plus’ but no it was all LIES and DISAPPOINTMENTS. The add I saw for it looked really good, so I tapped it and got the app-when It FINALLY downloaded not only was it REALLY slow, but there was not exit button on the story. I thought it was weird but didn't linger on it because I thought I was about to read and awesome story. Im probably about 15 taps in before it presents me with a choice, in which I could not skip-and I couldn't leave the story-but I had to get premium to select a choice. But I cant because money doesn't grow on trees. I understand the ‘you have yo wait 30 minuets’ thing because otherwise there would be no need for a premium and nothing would be gained from the app by the developer, but dont present the app with all those premium things that we average people cant get. At the very least give me an exit button.
This app was not at all thought out well. There are so many flaws with it. Plus in some of the other comments, I saw something about needing to read some horror story beforehand-not everyone can read horror stories. As a kid I couldn't even watch/read Goosebumps without having bad nightmares. This could be a great app, it just need A LOT of work. A LOT.
I don’t know how else to describe this app in one word other than disappointing.
I was so excited to download this app; to read stories and to make some of my own. But when you first download the app, it makes you click through a boring story about some murderer girl. That’s not what I want to read! I came to pick my own stories. I figured it was a tutorial and kept going. However, I found that it only got worse from there. It’s not just a tutorial, for one thing. It counts as the first story you read. You have to pay for pictures, video calls, voice notes; pretty much everything that makes the story interesting. And while reading the boring pre-story, you only get 20 taps before you have to wait 30 minutes to tap again, to finish a story you didn’t even get to choose to read! Not to mention, the premium is EXPENSIVE. It’s like Wattpad is trying to burn holes through your pockets. First Wattpad premium, now this fail. It’s disgusting to even think about.
In short, this app is a waste of time. I can’t even make my own stories! It’s honestly so boring with all the limitations and I will laugh hysterically if I hear that anyone actually paid for this garbage. This is one costumer you won’t be luring in, “Tap.”
I love these kind of interactive chat games so much. And so when I saw that Wattpad had one, I was so excited. But when you first open the app you’re forced to read a story that you didn’t even pick! I tried many times to click out or go to the home page. But the app wouldn’t let me. And then after tapping a few times a video chat request comes up. Which sounded awesome, when I taped the “accept” button a page came. The page talked about how to answer the call I had to pay. A little shocked I continued with the story. I was flabbergasted to see that I also had to pay to see pictures! I understand that the app has to make money, but the price for weekly subscription is a little pricey. Plus what if I simply don’t want to pay. By not being able to see the pictures and videos I don’t get the real experience. Why not just ask for donations, people will more inclined to donate if they truly love your app. But nooooo. Instead you force us to read a story we never chose then you charge us so much money to see pictures and videos. Really dislike the app, definitely going to delete it. If you’re thinking about getting this app be prepared to spend money to be a part of the story!
Used to be good.

I used to have tap, about 4 months ago. It got deleted so I recently just bought it. When I used to play tap, you went through one quick trial THEN you could click out and pick whatever story you want. AND you could make a profile and make stories. I love tap bc I love to make scary convos on there but now I’m just stuck with reading diff books I don’t even want to read. Second of all, you can only tap 20 times until the next “you have to wait 30 minutes to tap again!” Thing comes up. I have to wait 30 minutes for a story I don’t even want to read. I’ve read them all already and I’m stuck with them!
You know how in the middle of the story, there’s a thing that pops up. A picture that one of the characters use and sent to the other person. There’s phone calls, pictures, videos, and audio of what might be happening to them in the story, you have to pay SO MUCH just to have a vip thing for a week. You also have to pay to keep reading without the “wait 30 min” thing pops up.
I’m deleting tap until I can click out of the story, and read whatever I want AND be able to make my own.
I am an avid wattpad user and I absolutely adore the app. I had been really hyped for the Tap app, but when I got it... well, it wasn’t as great as I thought it would be.
First off, I’m not paying for extra features, so I do not get to see images, listen to videos, or choose alternate endings. However, because I’m not paying, I. Can’t. Choose.
Once you’re in a story, there is no home button. That was something I immediately noticed.
When it really became a problem was when I was in a story and had to choose between two options. When I clicked either one of them, a banner advertising premium popped up, saying I couldn’t choose unless I got it.
I tried to get out to the main menu, but nothing worked.
The only way to get out of a story is to complete it, so if you don’t like the story or you don’t have Premium, sorry. There’s no way out.
I had to redownload the app to my phone.
I’d like to see a feature where we can watch ads to unlock more taps, or stories, or see images. I understand the creators need to make money, but if there are advertisements, the people behind them have to pay for them to be on the app and the creators will be making money.
Premium would be cheaper but still better as you wouldn’t have to watch an ad for everything. Perhaps there could be a limit to ads each hour/day?
Also, please. Make a home button! (Or at least notify us if it is an alternate ending story so we won’t make the mistake of clicking on it).
Wattpad. You’re better than this.

I’ve had so many chat story apps, and I was expecting this one to be impressive, just like the Wattpad app. First, I’d like to say, I have no regard for the demon child story. That is not why I downloaded the app. Having to pay $8 for VIP is almost as ridiculous as the premium version of Wattpad- no one wants that. If the pictures, calls, etc. are essential to the story, I should not have to pay to view them. That is impractical, and certainly does not convince anyone to pay for them. A developer as successful as you should not feel the need to drain as much money out of your following as you can. I do understand the timer, as chat stories are a much faster (and less interesting) read than the stories on your other apps. However, that does not make this a sufficient story app. You cannot simply take the ideas of others, dress them up as your own, and make the people who have been supporting you for years pay for the same swill everyone else is peddling. This app is quite a disappointment and I believe I will have to stick with the original Wattpad.
So bad that I literally had to write a review.
Let me start off by saying this will literally be the first review I’ve written on here. This was literally so bad that it annoyed me to the point of this. I LOVE Wattpad, I’ve used it for years. And when I clicked the advertisement on FB for this app I didn’t even realize it was made by Wattpad! So at first I was double excited! A. The advertising got my attention with a pretty interesting sounding story. B. WATTPAD. But soon I found out that you had no choice but to click through this first terrible story that literally every single one of these text story apps has. Ya know, the one about the killer baby? Yeah. That. And you can’t skip passed it!!! Like I don’t care if you take all my taps but I don’t want to read this creepy story. Second you don’t even get five minutes into using the app before it starts pestering you to pay for a subscription. Don’t ask me for money to read a story you’re MAKING people read. Oh well. Back to normal Wattpad I suppose.
You HAVE To Pay To Play
I just got this app, and I am very disappointed in it. I saw an add and was looking forward to playing a certain story. So, I get the app and find out it is a choose your own adventure. I’m thinking “That’s awesome. This makes the story 10 times better.” So I start playing and I get to a spot where I have to choose an answer. I click on one option and then the other, and they BOTH require a membership to pick an answer. I had to stop playing the story which was really frustrating, and I am deleting the app. Also, the add made it look like people were texting and it would be set up that way, but it’s not. It’s just a cheesy background and some white boxes. I gave this review 2 stars instead of one because I do enjoy the concept of the app. I do think it could be better than other competing apps, but NOT without some improvements first.
Wow Factor ☀️
Yes, yes , YES! It’s been a year since I last downloaded this app and when I deleted Tap I forgot about it. Now I’ve come to the realization of how much I missed this. Other comments might say it’s stealing your money and you have to purchase to get exclusive privileges such as unlocking phone calls, choose your own endings, and video calls, but you can do that for free! Tap lets you earn tickets and gems for unlocked things. I find it great that you can also make your OWN stories as well! (Although you need to make an account first , which by the way is super easy to do) This app, in my opinion, is better than Hooked and Read It. Must download!!!!

I downloaded this app as a way to pass the time and it was a HUGE mistake. When you first download it you’re FORCED to play through a story that you don’t care about. Then you get a video call which seems like a cool feature but in reality you have to BUY PREMIUM. You can’t leave the story and then you can’t finish because you have to wait 30 some minutes to get more taps. You can’t even view the probably horrible photos without upgrading. And the premium is freaking $7.99!!! I get that they want to raise some money but I JUST DOWNLOADED the game for crying out loud! I’m not going to blow $8 on some game that I honestly don’t care about. They should let you experience the features for free at the beginning so you can decide for yourself if you want waste the money. If you can’t buy premium DON’T EVEN BOTHER! Waste of my time and frankly everyone else’s.
