Best story app
I have played a lot of story apps: Choices, Episodes, Lovestruck, What’s Your Story?, etc. This is honestly one of the best if bot the best one.
Like the rest of these story apps, you need tickets to read a chapter. However, Chapters is the most generous one. In other apps, it takes 2-4 hours to get a single ticket, and most give you a max of two tickets at a time. Chapters also has the standard of two tickets, but regeneration time is only 30 minutes, which is awesome! The timer starts as soon as you use a ticket to start reading, which is nice since some of the other apps don’t start the timer until after you’ve finished reading.
The best thing about this app is that it doesn’t make me feel like an ATM like the other story apps, which are full of ads and have a many choices that needs to be unlocked with many diamonds/gems. This app also requires diamonds, but it’s not outrageous like other apps which have choices that cost 30-50 diamonds. Most locked choices in Chapters that I’ve seen cost 17 diamonds or less, which I think is very reasonable. I also have never seen an ad. Honestly, this all makes me very willing to spend money on this app, which I have done.
In Love...Just Not With The Diamonds
I have downloaded tons of story apps like this one. And this one is by far the best. It's the one that keeps me up all night playing it. I made my fiancé download just so we can talk about the stories. I don't even really mind the ticket thing. However, I really mind the diamonds thing. I HATE that to wear certain thing and for certain choices I have to spend my diamonds or my real money to get diamonds. I mean this would cost me a fortune with all the stories I read. Personally, I think locking certain whole stories would be a better option. I much rather spend my money buying the most popular books then spend it on the choices I want to do because you run into a million and that will cost a fortune. It also would set this story app apart from the others because I've never see any of them do that. I even talked to my mother in law who had this app and she told me she deleted it because she couldn't choose what she wanted to choose. It's the apps biggest down fall. If it was changed, I would say it's perfect and reccomend it to everyone. I mean heck even the tickets to read a chapter can make you money. There's no reason for diamonds on choices. You can also through in adds for all I care. As long as I get to choose the choice I want. Hope this doesn't fall on deaf ears. I love the app tho! A must download.

I have mixed feelings about the app. I just re-downloaded the app about a week ago, and within that week I’ve come to a few different conclusions. I’ve only read two stories so far. One story I finished, the other I’m on the last few chapters. I can honestly say that I do like the actual stories so far. Both stories that I’ve read have been LGBTQ+ stories, which are the only two LGBT stories I can find. It bothers me that there is barely any diversity on this app. You can’t even really customize the characters to how you’d like them to look. Another thing that bothers me is the diamonds system. Now, I’ve seen this complaint a lot in the reviews. That should say something to the app developers. It’s highly inconvenient that I have to either pay hard earned money for diamonds, or just choose the option without diamonds. How am I supposed to make a choice that costs me 12-20 diamonds when I only have 7, and only get one per finished chapter? Someone in the conference room needs to reevaluate their math skills... Also, the problem with that is, the story will not go the way that I wanted it to. Which makes me disinterested with the book and wanting to just stop reading it and deleting the app altogether. Now, one thing I do like about the app is the taptales. They’re very interesting and don’t require you to make choices, meaning you don’t have to pay for some choices. I really think some drastic changes need to be made immediately.
Love the stories but if you don’t pay...
If you aren’t paying you aren’t really playing, it seems. I have never written a review in my life, but I actually have been enjoying the reading thing and the “idea” of getting to play a part in decisions and the outcome of the story. But that’s literally not the case when it gives you three options, one is of no cost and the other two are required diamonds with is required to pay. Even if you eventually add up all the diamonds you can get watching videos (which is a measly two at a time per video that are scarcely even an option to watch, not a watch and collect at your own leisure) the options are between 12-17 diamonds. I can’t pick and outfit or different decision if I don’t pay for this out of pocket which I currently do not have the option to even do right now as that’s going to get extremely costly. Maybe if it was 5$ for like 1000 diamonds , not 60 of them for that price. After one chapter you’ve just spent 5 dollars on a game that’s supposed to be free. It’s fun but not really as fun as it could be if you actually got to make choices. By the end of a book you’d be paying like 20-50 bucks if you picked your own choice which costs every time it pops up. Sucky. If it wasn’t for all that bs you have to deal with I’d give it a 5star rating all day! ):
Love the app, hate the diamonds
First of all I do understand that you need to make some money from a free app, but this app heavily advertises that you choose you make your own decisions, but a large majority of these decisions involve diamonds. And it’s always some insane amount of diamonds like 17 when you only get one per completed chapter. The thing that irritates me the most is that every time it’s an option involving diamonds, I ALWAYS want to pick that option. It’s so frustrating. Just like other reviewers have said, I honestly don’t mind the ticket to play system, and you could definitely make a killing off of just that, or do what other apps do, throw in ads every once in a while. This diamond thing makes my blood boil and makes me want to rage delete this app because I can’t pick the options I want to. ***UPDATE***
I used my registration reward to choose the option I really wanted to choose, spent 17 diamonds, and got gypped. After I chose the option something within the story prevented my option from happening. Seriously, what was the point in me even spending those diamonds if what I chose I wanted do wasn’t really even an option? I chose an option to reveal something to a character, and right after the story prevented it by some bs alarm going off making it impossible to tell her. I removed one more star from my previous review.
This is a good game and I like the stories and everything but if you wanna really play this game you have to spend a fortune on it! I mean, if you wanna read a decent (not the best version, just decent) story, you need to spend around 50 gems on each chapter, and let’s say around 1000 gems on each book. And how many of these gems can you get for free? Well at the end of each chapter you only get 2 gems, whoch will cover only 40 out of 1000, and the daily reward which is a total of 12 tickets and 20 gems is only available for the first week (2 free passes for 6 days and 20 gems on the 7th day) (and so are the free pass stories) there are tasks you can do and get gems but there’s only 4 of them and they give you like 3 gems! Oh and there are a limited number of ads you can watch daily and get 1 gem per ad. And why do they think we can invite 30 friends to play this? Who the hell has that many friends? Now you do the calculation. If you use the options costing 17 gems or at least 12 gems you’ll read a nice story, but even one free choice can mess it all up. And what’s worse than all is that you have to pay 30 gems to read the bonus chapter, and if you don’t you’ll literally have no ending! My advice for you is not to waste your time and just read normal books who won’t charge you at every paragraph or when you wanna reread them.
I love this!!
This is so much fun and I love that you can choose your own path, your own adventure! When I was younger, I remember how I loved these “Choose Your Own Adventure “ books . They were so much fun and it was so neat how you would read a part and then you would come to a point where you would have to make a choice between two or three choices. Each one would lead you down a different path and would lead you to different adventures!!
I think this is sooo much fun and I just love the way you are like writing a book with your choices in it instead of the author’s choices!!!
My only regret is that it can get quite expensive! You have to pay with “gems” in order to be able to get to the next chapter or sometimes to make a choice. Normally I would say that is ridiculous and would not spend the money. However, once you get into these “books” you ( or at least I am!!!) will be unable to say no!!! So beware!!
If you think you can spend the money, then I say “ENJOY!!!” You make the choice.......
Greed and lack of oversight
I first want to commend the programmers of this game. The graphics are good, the characters are well conceived and gameplay is fairly straightforward. The way the app is run, however, is why I am leaving a 1 star review. The stories I’ve read have been really entertaining, but I really don’t think 1 and a half stories should have cost me $90. And I didn’t even use all of the premium options. The “free” version of the stories is threadbare and make the characters seem pathetic and uninteresting. The only way to inject humor and spice into the stories is to use diamonds. I’m talking lots and lots of diamonds; hundreds of diamonds. And the other ways to earn diamonds, other than buying them, are ridiculous. Most choices require 17-40 diamonds. The app lets you earn diamonds 1 at a time, and there are very low limits on how many you can earn in a day. I felt like I was paying a ransom to free the actual story. It strikes me as being incredibly greedy.
My other problem is in the lack of oversight. There is a story in the “taptales” section that is a straight cut and paste of an older story on a different website. Comments have been left for the past 4 months about the issue, but there is no sign it has been looked into. Basic oversight and accountability should not rest solely on the players’ shoulders.
This game is a complete rip-off. Don’t waste your money on this “free” app.
Almost the best
I have enjoyed most of the stories I have read so far, but there are many bugs (double faces, clothes randomly switching on characters) and spelling and grammar issues (along with names being wrong in some spots!). The story named “HiS” seems like it was written by a 15 year old from a foreign country who couldn’t quite figure out how to translate what they were saying into English. I was liking Bad Boy Blues, except for the fact that it kept skipping over intimate parts, but then saying later that they happened. It was weird and made the story very disjointed. A lot of the choices are ridiculous. I can either answer a simple question with a simple answer paying diamonds, or I can go over the top and lash out for no reason whatsoever for free and be highly over dramatic. I like that tickets come every 30 minutes, instead of 2 hours. I don’t like that each “premium choice” costs 12-24 diamonds when you only get 1 diamond for finishing a chapter. Also, in the past few days, I have only been getting 1 diamond for about every FIVE chapters, which is really annoying. Most of the stories definitely get raunchier than my other favorite story app, Choices. My husband definitely doesn’t mind being woken up in the middle of the night... 😂😉
One thing that’s annoying is that the diamond choices don’t have much of an effect on the story. It’s frustrating that so many choices the better option costs diamonds. Wearing the nicer outfit literally doesn’t effect the story at all. Often, it seems like the story progresses the same no matter what choices are made. The only time when the choices actually matter are for the ending. While you only get 1 diamond every chapter you read, there is the possibility to spend about 100 diamonds in one chapter. This causes the reader to be frustrated and makes it not as fun. While there are some great stories on here, it isn’t worth it to spend your own money on this game. Also, the customization for characters is severely lacking. It’s annoying how every story offers different options for what you want your character to look like. It would be better if there was a more custom option that could be used for all the stories. There are on average 4 different options for what to look like for each story, and some offer zero customization at all. Also, this took up 10 gigabytes... that’s right gigabytes of storage since the stories are downloaded or something. If you want an app to take up a lot of your storage and annoy you by the lack of choices then this is the app for you.
