User Reviews for Yarn - Chat & Text Stories


I downloaded this app for some scary story fun but when I opened the app, it brought me straight to the story, (after I chose scary or romantic) I didn’t even get to choose what story I wanted to read. So I ended up just continuing to read. It wouldn’t let me see any calls, images,etc. On top of that you can’t read any other episodes, chapters, or stories without paying $4.99 a week! (Might as well just make us buy the app to download it) This was a huge waste of time. I don’t know if it has a timer because there’s no way to indicate if there is or isn’t one. I don’t recommend this app. When you click out of the story there is a variety of selections you can make to read, but if you click on it then it pops up with a “VIP Yarn” page. (Which you have to pay $4.99 to be a VIP) This app was a waste of time and was a huge inconvenience. Until they fix the issues and/or bugs, I will not have any further association with the app!!!! NOT IMPRESSED!!!!! DO NOT DOWNLOAD!!!! Thanks for reading!

One of the worst apps ever

Why wait to know the next part I always get into the story sooo much then BAM I have to wait 25 minutes don’t you see what you are doing here you are making the app worse with the time at least make it so there are in-game coins so each time you finish one part you get 10 coins and you can use 40 coins to skip the wait for 3 times that would make me rate it a 5 but in my head actually 6.5 and you should be able to watch maybe 1 or 2 ads to skip the wait for any amount you want for example you watch 10 ads in a row then the next 5 waits you get to skip but if you do one ad then you skip 12 minutes of the wait so 1000 ads make the next 500 waits off and when it’s the next part it says do you want to use 1 skip? You have ________ skips(The _______ is how many skips you have it tells you) so yeah that would make it a really good story app or make it you can use coins or watch ads

Feedback on the game (Changes, please do)

I wanted to read some cool stories but this app makes it difficult to read them. I was reading a scary story and just as I started to understand it it ends and I have to wait 30 minutes to continue!!!!! I really don’t want to have to pay every week to READ. If you want money just make the app cost money not a subscription. I think a lot more people would get the game if they only have to pay once, and you can have exclusive subscriptions (that cost money) for the cooler stories that are just coming out or that are new. But for old stories that are already out just let them be free so others can watch without paying, and if people want to see NEW stories they can get the subscription to watch as soon as they come out. That’ll make things a lot easier and less time consuming, and people won’t have to wait to watch (or read) the next episode of their favorite story.

It’s ok, I guess..

It’s a good app, but I don’t like how you have to pay to see/watch a picture/video. I can’t seem to find a way to make my own story, which is disappointing because, in my personal opinion I’m a very good story writer, and I would like to share that with others. But I can’t find an option, to make a story! I have looked everywhere and can’t seem to find it! I’m not so happy about that! Please fix this because, the fact that I can’t find a way to make my own story, takes all the fun out of the app. I don’t just wanna read other people’s story’s, and not have enough others read mine as well. That’s the entire reason why I downloaded this app, to write a story. Yea, reading others is fun and all, but I’d rather read mine! If you would rather make your own story and not read someone else’s..then don’t download the app! It’s a waste of your time...TRUST ME!!!!

i don’t like this app at all. it’s nothing like you see in the ads or what is says it is. you literally can’t do anything without the page popping up about the subscription you have to pay for if you want to unlock that story. at first when you open the app it leads you to a free story. but the annoying thing is, if there was a picture sent in the text you aren’t allowed to view it unless you buy the subscription. i don’t want to pay for everything i do! and after you finish that story, it leaves you off with a cliffhanger and won’t let you read part 2 without buying the subscription? than i look through all the categories of stories trying to find a free one and every one i click on it says i have to pay for it! and i assumed that after you read the free story it gave you, you would earn some gems and be able to unlock more stories without paying. but no. i didn’t get anything after reading that pointless story that wasn’t even good. i had the game for about 30 minutes and after i couldn’t even find any more free stories that were actually good, (because it makes you pay if you want to read a good one) i just got so frustrated and deleted it. i dont recommend this app unless you want to buy a whole subscription for like $50 and it most likely won’t be worth it anyway. this app was a waste of time. i wish i could give it 0 stars.

Takes your money!!!

The app in itself isn’t the worst, it’s actually quite cool and enjoyable. My problem with it is that it charges people for a year long $70 subscription after a free week trial without much of a warning. Other free trial apps that lead to a subscription tend to give you a notification authorizing charges and even then the charge isn’t a year subscription for $70 maybe a month at most. This is especially unfair to families who may have young children downloading the app not realizing they’re charging money to their parents bank account or old people who aren’t familiar with the technology and get charged without being notified. And even if you don’t notice the charge in your bank account this could continue for years.. I don’t expect the app to do much about this problem, I’m sure they did it on purpose to profit off those who don’t pay super close attention to detail or are forgetful. PLEASE READ THE FINE TEXT AND KNOW WHAT YOU MAY GET YOURSELF INTO. I personally filed a claim against the transaction on my card this morning, I’m poor and don’t have $70 to just give out... I need to feed myself and family first.

I don’t know why the this app has all these good reviews, or why it's advertised all over Snapchat as "great great great"..... If I could give it zero stars I would. It's advertised like you don't have to pay anything to be able to use it and that's just a flat out lie. you get literally 10 "messages" (like lines from characters in a play) of ONE story for free, and then that’s it! And you don't even get to pick which story, it just asks you "steamy or scary" and then starts something random... So unless you want to pay five dollars a WEEK, you get nothing except an app that pops up with "pay us!!" Every time you click ANYTHING, you can't even navigate the app to see if there's anything worth paying the money for without paying.... Not to mention, that’s waaaay too much money for stupid fake text messages, especially when there is free stuff ALL OVER the internet. Heck, try reddit, there are whole forums dedicated to any genré of story you could want. And the quarter of the story I got wasn’t even anything entertaining... there were these pictures that were blurred out and you couldn’t view them without paying five bucks a picture.... No way... This app is a waste of space and energy. Don't waste your time.

VIP for everything

I download this thinking I’d get some fun scary stories to read, but oh how much I was wrong. I first open the app and there’s no menu or interface or account stuff or anything, just all these stories. I start reading the one they randomly picked for me and then I’m met with a timer right in the middle. I’m ok with timers for free apps, even video ads to speed up the timers (free apps gotta make money somehow), but not right in the middle of the chapter! Then I find that I can’t read the next chapter without paying $4.99 a week. So I tried looking around at new stories too and find out I can’t even start them without paying $4.99 a week.This is a total rip off! You don’t even get to choose your first story, can’t even finish a chapter in one sitting, and then can’t read anything but the first chapter of the first story without paying $4.99 a week. Then on top of all of it, you don’t get to see any pictures or videos in that one chapter without paying $4.99 a week.Honestly how stingy can a company be? At this point why even bother make the app free?!

Please do not waste your time with downloading this app. It gives you one story and that’s it. I do not know if there is a timer. There is nothing to indicate that there is. However, it gives you ONE STORY AND ONE STORY ONLY. IT DOES NOT GIVE YOU ANY ACCESS TO IMAGES, VIDEOS, OR PHONE CALLS DURING THE FIRST STORY. If you leave the story and try to start another or go back to the one you were reading, it will just pop up the “Become a YARN VIP” screen. That screen doesn’t even display any helpful information either! THERE WAS NOT A SINGLE CATEGORY, TAB, SECTION, NOT A SINGLE THING, DEDICATED TO EXPLAINING HOW EVERYTHING WORKS. It does not say you need to wait a certain time. It does not say you need to do anything to unlock stories. It just pops up the vip purchase screen. That’s it. Please, DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME! Unless this changes, or something is done to fix this bug/issue, if it even is one(I think that it is intentional seeing how there is no information within the app about what is what and about how everything works). I could go on and on but those are the major issues above. Thanks for reading!

About the app!

See I think that this app is a very cool idea to have. Like you could read text messages as stories, about love and scary or even comics. But the thing is that it’s sad about it is that we have to pay just to read them, like you can’t even read one word from a story cause it automatically takes you to a “paying page”. Like every time I see that I just get out of the app and uninstall it. It’s such a waste of time. Like I just want to read something off of it. Cause I always see people posting on their Snapchat like “hey you should try this app called yarn it’s soooo cool and you could read really cool stories”. Like I want to experience this amazing app but unfortunately I can’t cause I have to pay to read it which is soooo stupid and annoying. So, if you feel like paying 5 dollars a week just to read stories, I wouldn’t download this app at all. It’s a waste of time (no offense) and it’s useless to have. Sorry, for all the negativity but that’s how I feel thank you!
