Love this app.

I might love this app to much. I get to pick what the main character looks like, so I get her as close to me as I can. I get to pick her name so all of them are me lol... the best way to read a book is to put yourself into the main roll, so I do. It is so much fun, then you get to choose what happens, well for the most part. There are tickets for reading the chapters you usually get 2 and it takes an hour for one to be replenished,
(you can buy more if you want/need) but to start a new book is free. outfits and some choices cost diamonds (which I wish were less so I could choose more options) they usually cost 12 for a nice out fit/ tempting choice or 17 diamonds for the best outfit/spicy choice so it adds up quickly, however there are choices/outfits that don’t cost, however they usually are not something I would normally choose. But I will sacrifice an outfit for a choice later. I also love the stories. Besides that the other thing I would change is a chance for a back button, I don’t know how many times I have lost control of my phone and as I’m trying to grab it again I have hit the screen and changed the story, or I put it down for a moment and my cat stepped on it and changed it.
Also I get often that the system will not let me in please try again later, which is super annoying but it usually corrects itself in a few hours. I would recommend this to everyone that likes to read and make their own choices, however it is super addictive. 😁
In Love...Just Not With The Diamonds
I have downloaded tons of story apps like this one. And this one is by far the best. It's the one that keeps me up all night playing it. I made my fiancé download just so we can talk about the stories. I don't even really mind the ticket thing. However, I really mind the diamonds thing. I HATE that to wear certain thing and for certain choices I have to spend my diamonds or my real money to get diamonds. I mean this would cost me a fortune with all the stories I read. Personally, I think locking certain whole stories would be a better option. I much rather spend my money buying the most popular books then spend it on the choices I want to do because you run into a million and that will cost a fortune. It also would set this story app apart from the others because I've never see any of them do that. I even talked to my mother in law who had this app and she told me she deleted it because she couldn't choose what she wanted to choose. It's the apps biggest down fall. If it was changed, I would say it's perfect and reccomend it to everyone. I mean heck even the tickets to read a chapter can make you money. There's no reason for diamonds on choices. You can also through in adds for all I care. As long as I get to choose the choice I want. Hope this doesn't fall on deaf ears. I love the app tho! A must download.
Honestly, I feel like Chapters has the potential to be a really good app, due to the amount of diverse stories there are. However, it’s still lacking in a few things.
1. Stories are mediocre at best, but occasionally you’ll find a gem here and there. These stories pander to mostly lonely middle-aged women and fit a very stereotypical scenario most of the time. Chapters has multiple stories that cover a lot of the same tropes over and over...The hot daddy millionaire, boy next door, or your typical vampire love story, the one where the guy is a big tsundere in denial of his love for you and has an extremely toxic personality...Chapters has a little bit of everything for everyone. But the tropes are heavily recycled over and over. This app has so many stories, but lacks diversity when it comes to tropes.
2. Diamonds. I know recently Chapters has tried to make it fair for users who don’t pay, but come on...Paying 17 diamonds for choices that basically don’t matter with barely any outcome? That’s a little ridiculous. Especially, when we get very few diamonds after the stories themselves. I wouldn’t have an issue with waiting to collect diamonds, watching ads for them, etc...but choosing diamond choices with little or no outcome is a bit silly. Why not put the diamond choices on the choices that will have a real impact on the story? The “Choices” app does this very well by balancing this out, even if we’re spending 17 diamonds on a choice.
One of the Best!!
I consider this app to be one of the best interactive games for 2 reasons. The first, it really does have some of the best stories compared to other apps that are similar. The second, it is one of the best money grabs I’ve ever witnessed!!! All of the important choices require you to use diamonds and it seems like every 3rd or 4th choice is an important choice. The choices cost at least 12 or 17 diamonds, some others as much as 20 or 30. There’s usually 3 choices, only one of them won’t require diamonds. Diamonds are hard to come by unless you are willing to buy them, the 30 diamonds for $1.99, get you 2 choices lol. Most stories are anywhere from 14 to 20 chapters and each chapter easily has about 8-10 choices that require diamonds. You can sacrifice outfit choices that require diamonds to save some, it just means you may end up on a date to a benefit gala dressed in a button-up shirt and ankle length pleated skirt!! The choice options are so skillfully crafted too, the free choice is almost always something with a negative outcome. Not all the stories require diamonds for outfits, I’ve come across one with all free outfit choices. Basically if you don’t have a problem with spending so much of your hard earned money on an app like this, you’ll absolutely love it. The game is definitely more focused on making money than providing enjoyment, which is obvious with the selection of choices given to you!!!!
Love this app but.....
I love this app and I love the stories they get me hooked and I love it. I get into the emotions of the ppl in the book. The only reasons I’m not giving a 5 star is because the choices are too expensive and the outfits cost too many diamonds too I’ve spent money playing because of how much I love the stories. I just wish the cost of the choices didn’t take so many diamonds and the clothes didn’t take so many diamonds. When I finish a book would be great to get diamonds for them. Most choices when playing are from 12 to 17 diamonds some are higher based off the good answers and the clothes are costly too and if ur in a book the outfits you already spent diamonds on shouldn’t cost you they should be free choices all in all it’s great I love reading books like these when the characters heart is racing so is mine, when they cry so do I, I can channel all the characters and it’s great they are great and the app is amazingly great too better then others I’ve tried. Would be great to get the price down lower and the adds to watch to get diamonds u have to watch 5 adds to get 1 diamond each add but after like 25 adds they are gone till the next day.

I have mixed feelings about the app. I just re-downloaded the app about a week ago, and within that week I’ve come to a few different conclusions. I’ve only read two stories so far. One story I finished, the other I’m on the last few chapters. I can honestly say that I do like the actual stories so far. Both stories that I’ve read have been LGBTQ+ stories, which are the only two LGBT stories I can find. It bothers me that there is barely any diversity on this app. You can’t even really customize the characters to how you’d like them to look. Another thing that bothers me is the diamonds system. Now, I’ve seen this complaint a lot in the reviews. That should say something to the app developers. It’s highly inconvenient that I have to either pay hard earned money for diamonds, or just choose the option without diamonds. How am I supposed to make a choice that costs me 12-20 diamonds when I only have 7, and only get one per finished chapter? Someone in the conference room needs to reevaluate their math skills... Also, the problem with that is, the story will not go the way that I wanted it to. Which makes me disinterested with the book and wanting to just stop reading it and deleting the app altogether. Now, one thing I do like about the app is the taptales. They’re very interesting and don’t require you to make choices, meaning you don’t have to pay for some choices. I really think some drastic changes need to be made immediately.
I love this game. The stories are great and much like stories I also write. I do wish there were more paranormal stories. Specifically witches. The diamond thing isn’t so bad. 10 dollars a month for a membership seems reasonable. But even without that you can make many choices in many stories. It’s all very thrilling. The one thing I would take note of...definitely give more options for character. I feel like most people want to make a character as similar to them as possible. Unfortunately, in some of the stories, the girls are hideous lol. Women of color should also have more choices as well. What...they get one girl? And Asians get one girl? And usually there is at least 2 different white women to choose from. Or everyone has brown eyes. And I’m a very pale Jewish girl with green eyes and black hair. So usually no one looks like me haha. I do like that we have multiple hair options though. It would be super cool if we could create a character but I understand that is difficult so just having more options would be nice. :) overall really great game though. Out of interactive stores this rates 2nd for me with arcana being 1st. Idk why choices gets more attention because I really feel that the stories in chapters are way more interesting.
Love the stories but if you don’t pay...
If you aren’t paying you aren’t really playing, it seems. I have never written a review in my life, but I actually have been enjoying the reading thing and the “idea” of getting to play a part in decisions and the outcome of the story. But that’s literally not the case when it gives you three options, one is of no cost and the other two are required diamonds with is required to pay. Even if you eventually add up all the diamonds you can get watching videos (which is a measly two at a time per video that are scarcely even an option to watch, not a watch and collect at your own leisure) the options are between 12-17 diamonds. I can’t pick and outfit or different decision if I don’t pay for this out of pocket which I currently do not have the option to even do right now as that’s going to get extremely costly. Maybe if it was 5$ for like 1000 diamonds , not 60 of them for that price. After one chapter you’ve just spent 5 dollars on a game that’s supposed to be free. It’s fun but not really as fun as it could be if you actually got to make choices. By the end of a book you’d be paying like 20-50 bucks if you picked your own choice which costs every time it pops up. Sucky. If it wasn’t for all that bs you have to deal with I’d give it a 5star rating all day! ):
Love the app, hate the diamonds
First of all I do understand that you need to make some money from a free app, but this app heavily advertises that you choose you make your own decisions, but a large majority of these decisions involve diamonds. And it’s always some insane amount of diamonds like 17 when you only get one per completed chapter. The thing that irritates me the most is that every time it’s an option involving diamonds, I ALWAYS want to pick that option. It’s so frustrating. Just like other reviewers have said, I honestly don’t mind the ticket to play system, and you could definitely make a killing off of just that, or do what other apps do, throw in ads every once in a while. This diamond thing makes my blood boil and makes me want to rage delete this app because I can’t pick the options I want to. ***UPDATE***
I used my registration reward to choose the option I really wanted to choose, spent 17 diamonds, and got gypped. After I chose the option something within the story prevented my option from happening. Seriously, what was the point in me even spending those diamonds if what I chose I wanted do wasn’t really even an option? I chose an option to reveal something to a character, and right after the story prevented it by some bs alarm going off making it impossible to tell her. I removed one more star from my previous review.
It was cool

The reason I’m going giving it three stars is because when you play you have to play for certain choices and outfits. I have no problem paying but the fact that they choices cost so much is annoying. If you don’t pick the paid choice then you lost content and you suffer. In the recent update they decided it was a good idea to to give you even less diamonds then that did before which is very dumb. I think it’s dumb because if there going to give you less then they should lower the prices for the choices. I get it the app is probably becoming more popular which is why there making it harder to get diamonds. Now the only way to get more diamonds is to become a VIP and I’m not paying to become a VIP when this is only a game. I think they should change it back to getting to diamond after a chapter then an extra too if you watch the ads. Also the conversion for the the diamond exchange is honestly outlandish 40 for ONE diamond. It should be like 5 for 1 since you don’t have that many opportunities to get them anyway! They raised the price of the choices to the same thing as if they were giving us more diamonds but there not! Now I have to choose the choice that cost nothing because I don’t have enough diamonds. Very annoyed and I’m probably going to delete this app!
