Since the new update, or maybe one before this one, it's extremely hard to edit and format on the app (It doesnt keep the formatting when you paste the text in btw.) Every time you do anything like typing in a word, change the font of a word, or putting space in between paragraphs, anything, the page pulls all the way to the bottom and you have to scroll back up. Over and over again. It wasn't like this before. This adds to a long list of annoying glitches that Wattpad seems to be famous for.

Would give it a 5, but I have been having some issues. Everytime I leave a book I'm reading, it either puts me back at the beginning, or puts me on a chapter that I wasn't reading. Also, while I'm reading, all of a sudden, it will bring me to a weird website from an ad I didn't even click on. Lastly, a couple years ago there used to be a ad after every other chapter, but now there is one after every one. This stuff is quite annoying since I'm on this app every day. Other than that, awesome app!!

The app is unique and very well made, all things considered after using it for 10 years. However, I use many different tools, apps, and translating tools while writing, having to go back and forth between many different apps while I write. This causes the app to crash every time I'm doing the translation process of my light novel very frustrating and downright makes me want to throw my phone at an orphan (just an analogy im not actually going to do that.) the stability of the app needs work.
