User Reviews for Inkitt: Books, Novels, Stories

Fix your algorithms!!!

I love this app. I really do. I love it so much that I’ve read just about every single story on the popular and new pages. However, when I search for new books by genre, the same list of books pop up. Now I read a lot. I can finish a 500 page book in a day. That being said, I am searching for something new to read everyday, if not multiple times a day. I’m losing hope that there is even anything new on the site for me to even read. Please refresh your algorithms so that I can see new stories and new things. Not being able to see the page count of each story on the app before I click into it, is frustrating. Something with 30 chapters that’s complete can be misleading. Most of the time, those books average about two hundred to three hundred pages, or even one hundred. I’d like to be able to see how many pages are in the book before so that I don’t accidentally cause the app to crash like it has so many times before.

Love the site, hate the app

Alright, I love love love the stories on the Inkitt site, and I love that (as of June 2020) the stories are free (one of the reasons I stopped using Wattpad is that it was a free space for authors to share their work when I started and then slowly started adding monetization, even without the knowledge or consent of the authors and without paying the authors for the ads they were placing on our stories without us allowing them to) HOWEVER this app is a MESS. It glitches all the time, randomly freezes, goes black, shuts down. It takes forever to load anything and it’s incredibly hard to find stories aside from the same 5 that the app seems to always have in the recommended for you section. I’d love to read more, but can’t find any stories I haven’t read. Now I don’t know if it’s because there aren’t any more stories on the site in the genres and tags that I’m searching or if it’s bc of some algorithm that makes it hard to find them. I’m going to give reading online a try, simply because I am so frustrated with this app lately that I just don’t even want to use it anymore.

Great App but has issues

I love the stories! I usually do all my reading on this app, but it has bugs that I’ve been dealing with that a super irritating. Sometimes it’ll just completely cut off as I’m reading something and I’ll end up at my home screen. Another issue I’ve been having is that when I go to write comments on a chapter my keyboard will get in the way and I can’t submit and or see the things I’ve written to check for misspellings. There’s also the problem of when an author has an update on your news feed and I click it, it doesn’t take me to the new chapter, it takes me to the previous one. The biggest issue I am currently facing is every time I open the app it takes me back to whatever I read last, even after I exit out of the chapter and click on a different tab like discover it news and when I do try to go back the screen won’t load. So now I can’t see any of my updates of read anything new for that matter. I’m seriously thinking about deleting which is a shame because I love a lot of the stories on there.

Great app! some issues!

First, Inkitt has been a god sent! I love the catalogue and the fact that it is quality stories for no cost. I have been a Wattpad reader ever since before the design and price changes and I have to search in the nooks and crannies to find a quality book that is free! But Inkitt has it all I look for in a reading app in one place! But the only shortcoming is the layout. Now the layout is horrible there’s waaaay too many things trying to be crammed on one home screen and none of the pictures see conclusive, they just seem to fade. I would suggest a way to organize it to make it more user friendly and another is the FONT. PLEASE CHANGE THE FONT or give us an option to change it when we read because the current one is very hard to see and especially against the stark white background! But other than those simple design issues 10/10 app! I would definitely recommend!

I’m an inkitt writer who started on wattpad but wanted to branch out. Being so familiar with one app I was scared and hesitant. I like things to be familiar. The inkitt writing app is helpful if you are constantly writing, but it is not necessary. You can edit your works inside the app as well which I appreciate because I enjoy both reading and writing and I would hate to HAVE to switch between apps but here I have the choice. I still use it for when I have a lot of work to do because it is more writing focused. There are a lot of community options and people to interact with. I’m still not totally familiar with it, but over all very pleased so far with how well it works and the fact that my books are being recommended to people, despite them being brand new and having few readers. I will continue to write on the app and read others works

Fixes to make app useful for visually impaired users

This app is not very accessible for visually impaired users who require using Apple’s VoiceOver function. Please make the necessary changes to allow us access to all the apps functions and tools. I love reading and very much enjoy this app but it needs to be a lot more visually impaired friendly. Please take my request into consideration because I'm positive I cannot be the only user with these issues and concerns. And in an attempt to brive you in to making the necessary adjustments for us, I provide the assurance that you will gain many if not hundreds more users with this issue being fixed and this app being at the visually impaired community's reach. I know I've recommended it to many of my acquaintances and friends and would be more than glad to keep spreading the word to other fellow reading enthusiasts. Thank you for taking the time to read this very long complaint/request. Hope to see changes soon and thank you for caring and creating a great platform for readers and writers alike.

Love the app but there’s some problems

I love some features of this app like being able to leave and read reviews or the fact that every story is free. However, there’s some problems. 1.when I press the app it doesn’t immediately open-the screen goes black for about 5 seconds until the app opens.(not my phone’s fault as this only happens with Inkitt) 2. The app freezes a lot and I have to press multiple times for it to do what I want it to do. 3. When I go to the next chapter it often brings me back to the begging of the chapter I’d just read. 4. It isn’t really a problem but it could be good if the red circle in the notifications went away after you opened and reloaded all your notifications, instead of us having to click and open one of the notifications. 5. When somebody replies to my comment and I click the notifications, instead of it bringing me to my comment, it just opens the end of the comments section of whichever chapter and book it is.

Current reads sect. & switching from on phone and computer

I have a problem with how the current reads section is set up. I have a hard time figuring out which one has been updated. (I know it says which one in the tab that is notifications but it’d be helpful here as well.) It shows which book that you’re currently reading vertically and shows (too many) recommendations underneath, but it doesn’t show that there has been a portion updated on any of them. If you were to show just the current reads and the update status on each of the books horizontally with more detail it would be easier to go back to another book that you were reading in the past and read the updated parts. Kinda like how Wattpad has theirs set up but in your own way per se? On another note! I also have noticed that when I am reading on my phone and want to continue reading a book on my computer it looses where I was at. Either completely starting from the beginning of the book or from the beginning of the page that I am on.

Can’t view my own story

Another issue that would be a bit more useful if they fixed (I’ll email support about it) apparently Apple’s TTS doesn’t work with the app which can make it very difficult sometimes with reading some stories. Yes, I know, TTS technically isn’t “reading” a story, but I’m dyslexic and when some of the stories are more walls of text it is a bit useful to be able to fall back on something that can read for me. I can kind of understand why it may not be coded to use it, but I can use TTS on the site fine. I would prefer using the app for reading, though.While trying to view my own story in reader view it sends me to my browser saying I need to download the app I’m ALREADY USING to continue viewing the story I’m TRYING to view in the first place. Guess I’ll just use the website, instead (for that matter, why doesn’t it just send me to the App Store?) Oh, another not so major issue is when I paste my story chunk over it doesn’t reformat as well as it does on the website (for some reason on the website it’ll properly space the paragraphs, but in the app it turns into a wall of text, which is what I was afraid of) If you’re a writer using this I’d suggest sticking with the website and just reading with the app (though there are issues with that as well)

Need fixes

This app is very nice and I personally like it as a reading app, but I generally don’t like it when it have to login in your account. It’s a basic thing and I know that because I’m not dumb, but connect the devices that aren’t a computer with any device. I started my account on a ipad and I wanted to write a book. Though I soon to realize you have to write it on a computer. I was okay with that because I have a computer and some apps prefer that, but I forgot my password (since it was a long time) and I tried multiple times to login. I finally clicked “forgot password?” And they did email me the link, but almost all of it say it couldn’t find my account. Then, I received a working link and I wrote in my new password and when I came back to my computer—typing the same password I wrote on the received email— they told me I did something wrong. I don’t know why it won’t let me in which I want the developing team to fix because when I try to do it, they would either give me a new account (which I didn’t wanted) or I did something wrong with the signing in part.
