User Reviews for Hooked

Used to be good…

I give it one star only because how much this app has downgraded over the time, it used to be one of my favourite apps to start off writing stories and everything and being able to actually use a app to write your own stories and read others and see all the interesting stuff others had to talk about and whatnot but now, now you can’t even write your own, you have to pay for loads of stuff now, and I’ve spent a little time scrolling through the reviews and comments made on the app and each person is saying the same thing. I understand that developers of this app need money themselves for the app but I don’t see why we can’t write our own still and be able to view free things without having to pay for everything, I’m sure you get money out of the advertisements that’s no issue but just things here and there we have to pay for, for enjoyment? Really? The app is somewhat of a ripoff and seriously downgraded over time

Stop Making Us Pay A Lot

this has to be a 1-2 star. I loved this app until i found out i had to pay. I have to wait for an hour or more to read another part of a story which makes me so upset. I have to pay for mostly everything and i hate that. This app should be free why make everything so expensive? I would love this app if it was cheaper but other this app really is bad. The stories are great but waiting for long and paying so much? No! Make this app cheaper and free and no more waits and ads ! other than everything i don’t like the money and ads. This app used to be good until the creator of this app decided to make it expensive! The stories amazing the creator with money not amazing. Ads as well is not good and waiting as well. I genuinely don't like the payments and waiting to read another part of the story and so much ads. If you take those off i would download it again thanks.

Ehh was better before

Had the app a couple years back and it was amazing. Honestly don’t remember why I deleted it. I redownloaded it recently and I can’t even read anything without having to pay $5 weekly… so $20 a month. Normally, I wouldn’t be frustrated Bc I understand that people gotta get paid and need to make money from their work and all but the fact that I can’t get anything at all is ridiculous. It shouldn’t have been free on the AppStore if I can’t use it without paying for it. It would be different if there was still things I could read without paying and then some stories were left for people who paid or something along the lines of that concept. Very frustrating because it was such a good app before.

Use to be good but...

Hello. I had hook 2 years ago and It was fantastic made me a little addicted to it! Anyways I decided to download it a year ago again and I seen I had to pay in order to actually read the stories, I thought that was pretty much a rip off ... I understand that the payments and the money efforts but seriously? I thought you guys was going to remove that like it would’ve been better to pay for the videos that the people send on the stories and texts, (I don’t know if you do because I don’t have the app right now). But then again I wanted to download it now because I haven’t thought of anything of it ! I personally thought it was going to be good spooky, romantic, etc stories & then I forgot about the “payment to read” thing and I download it .. I get happy then I have to pay 5$ to pay and especially to finish at that? No thanks. I hope the people/person can develop and do something about that atleast? Thank you for reading I hope you have a wonderful day or night. Besides this report I feel hook was a good experience for me.

I didn’t even know what this app was until I got a five minute ad with a pretty good story in it. It wasn’t exactly realistic but I thought it was pretty good and I wanted to finish it. So I downloaded the app.. and it tells me to pay money to actually get into the app at all. Okay now don’t get me wrong, I don’t mind paying to get into it but 20 dollars a month is kinda.. eh. But here’s the thing that confused me. You see I wouldn’t exactly have known about this but if you scroll down (and this is ridiculous because the only option we as the people reading see is the option to pay) you’ll see that there’s an option to sign in/sign up, and it doesn’t even work. And if it’s there in the first place, then why have the option to pay? Also if it doesn’t work then why just leave it there? Yeah so I may be deleting the app one way or another unless you fix this problem quick. I will compliment you on how good the ads are but at the same time that’s no excuse to trick us into paying. That is all I got.

The fact that we have to lay to use the app now

Okay so I downloaded hooked again after about five months of having deleted it and I come back to having to pay to use it... and at that five dollars?! I understand the actors may need money but what about the people who struggle for money right now? I feel like that was a bit selfish and I’m deleting hooked AND hooked TV because that was an outrageous update that just makes the creators and actors seem like money hungry tyrants... I’m done with hooked... I used to live watching the little skits and had no problem with ads or having to wait five minutes to see the other half instead of premium but what you (creator) did just makes you seem like a money hungry person.... it’s sad what the world and some people have come to now... it’s disgusting

I know they’re stories, but they’ve got unrealistic endings or expectations...

I know they’re stories, but most are based on real-life experiences, and if this is the case, there’s got to be some realistic and logical circumstances, communication, etc., right? Some “horror” stories seem more satirical, and the “romance” ones have unrealistic moments to show how relationships work.For “horror:” one story was concluded the protagonist went to a bad place for “meanness.” Most of the stories are “Oh no, I can’t call 911,” “ I’ve tried, but I’ve got no signal,” or “They’ll never make it in time,” but they can somehow text in a play-by-play fashion (meaning everything they say or do is texted...everything...) without any signal errors or never try calling again for legitimate help 🤦🏻‍♀️For “romance,” one story had a guy being tested via text how to find a girl that swiped his “girlfriend’s” phone without question. She used it to play out a movie like “The Game,” playing extremely hard to get with this guy. After all the gauntlets thrown at him of running around all over the city, in the end, he still wanted to go out with her??? I would’ve given up after the first time: “Why do you have her phone? Give it back!I just can’t take this seriously...

Used to be Great

I used to have this app maybe around 3 or 2 years ago and I used to be a complete addict because it used to be free and I was able to enjoy fictional stories for free but then, I decided to download this app again for the fun of it and maybe seeing if I could reread some stories but I go on the app and it seems now that you have to pay to actually read. 2 years ago I thought the paying to see videos and not having a wait time was pretty reasonable but not the actual stories itself. Plus the whole 4.99 per week seems a bit much just to read some fictional text message stories. Also reading the other reviews does not make your app look good when others read it so maybe take it into consideration that maybe you guys are overcharging?. Other than the whole paying situation, this app used to be amazing.

Why so much money

Honestly this is a really good app. I love reading the stories and they’re very entertaining. The dialogue is amazing and to be honest I wish these were actually books. But the problem is that now they make you pay $20 a month! That is too much money for a month. Also you can’t read the books without paying. There’s not even a demo book! Maybe you can take away the paying $20 a month thing and make it so some stories cost money and some stories are free. Honestly that’s a much easier and faster way to earn money then doing $20 a month. I’m disappointed because I was so excited to read the books and they look so interesting and then the screen pops up. I have no words to describe how disappointed I am. If you see this app I know it’s tempting but do not download it. It’s not worth it. Unfortunately I will be deleting this app and I recommend you do the same:(

Loved it, didn’t mind the ads, but it’s pay to use now

So I loved this app for a while, had a good amount of stories, but it seems that it’s a pay to use app now. I would go on read some stories before bed each night, watch the ads and wait the 15min for my next one to read. I had no issues with the ads or waiting the 15min for the next part of a story or the next new story. It was actually a good way for me to decide it was time to be done for the night, that little wait screen came up and it helped me not stay on there reading all night. I mean I understand the need to get revenue for the authors and all the others that work on this app. And if it was something like $5-8 a month I’d likely just subscribe but $20 a month is kinda steep for a monthly price. I could easily see $20 for 3 months. I will likely not be using this app any more and will probably be deleting it.
