I'm giving three stars only because of the years past that I used this app. It's still a great source for discovering new and unique writers and stories but the ads.... The ads have literally killed everything that made this app so nice. And the only way to get rid of them is to purchase a sub. 🙄 Typical. I can't read through a single chapter without getting assailed with an ad and some chapters are shorter than the ads themselves. Honestly, it's such a shame.

This app was fine until they started having ads for Garmin watches. Every time. EVERY TIME that ad pops up, my phone freezes. I have to turn it off, restart it, and do something else besides read for several minutes. Then, sometimes, I can get the story back. It's just not worth the hassle. Authors also do way too many silly "author's notes.". This distracts, and detracts, from the story, especially when they are formatted like a new chapter, which means even more ads. I give up.

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.
