Disappointed
by Marjie808 on 2019/11/13 06:27
I originally jumped on board with this app because I was fascinated by the ad that I saw about the “art collector” only to find out that the 7 min ad I saw was the whole episode on this app. On top of that there is no continuation to this 7 min video. Extremely unsatisfying
Rip off
by budnehje on 2019/11/13 03:12
This app is literally the biggest rip off I mean it is ported as a free app but then literally 15 seconds in it stops my story and tells me I have to wait 5 minutes before I can watch or I can speed up the wait time. Then it’s asking me to spend money to do that 🙄 absolutely ridiculous
Confusion
by ~_KittyxX on 2019/11/13 01:21
I recently downloaded the app and was a bit confused as the “texting” story that came up was a video. The app wouldn’t let me exit out so I just watched the video and exited at the end. When I did I saw a lot of other videos and there were some texting stories like the ones advertised. I was originally annoyed but afterwards satisfied. There were the texting stories I wanted and the one video I did watch ended up being pretty good. I recommend giving the app a try. The one problem I noticed was that you have to wait about 5 mins to continue the story and you can speed it up if you pay. Honestly it’s better than the apps that only let you read the beginning of one story.
Why I think this
by riverdale301 on 2019/11/13 00:17
I think that when it is typing it should show the picture when there is one I also think it should let us pick the story we want to hear another thing is that it should have scary and romantic but also mystery and if it had that in it I think this app would have more people using it
WOAH
by Jjou011 on 2019/11/12 20:39
Ok so when I first came on this app mind u I was watching DISNEY NOW with my little cousin witch was 3 and this romantic this came on with this girl making out with boys and my cousin just said “get it get it get it!” And that was just so weird because he is not into romantic stuff so just to inappropriate but has good story’s for older people
😄
by BellaRose1192 on 2019/11/12 20:03
I’m hooked !!!! Soooo good
No
by Dkdkiekdf on 2019/11/12 17:53
Once you download it it lets you watch like 5 seconds of a story before making you wait for 5 minutes unless you buy the premium.
Why pay
by Jordana0922 on 2019/11/12 07:59
I’m sure it is a great app if you pay for it, but it’s not worth posting for
Just stop
by seanyboy1191 on 2019/11/12 03:09
Why is it every two minutes that the game stops you have to have a 5 minute break and you don’t even get to choose the video you have to pick scary or romance or something then if you don’t want to watch a 5 minute video you need to pay a crazy 15$. Scription fee and what’s is the point by then so just let us choose are videos and don’t have a crazy fee!!!!!!!!!
Lower the times on the pauses
by Sheanry on 2019/11/11 22:26
It’s a cool concept and it’s fun to read but those pauses in between are absolutely horrible. You’ll be watching a video and then suddenly it just pops up and if you don’t pay for premium you have to sit through those pauses forever it’s annoying as hell and I really recommend lowering the time of the pauses. Someone like me who is too young and has all the money I spend monitored by my parents so I can’t just use my own money to buy premium so this is a big problem for me.
Clicked
by alanyh1o on 2019/11/11 20:28
I think this app is amazing and some leave on cliffhanger and I love that
Why
by M.totheM. on 2019/11/11 18:18
I like the app and all but the need to make me wait is just annoying and needing to pay money. Selfish I say, I say hooked just wants money which is likely true
Not working
by golden freddy1234 on 2019/11/11 03:42
It only would let me see two stuff dies and would not exit them
I used it for 15 seconds and I’m already mad
by 🤩😎🤓🧐😛😋 on 2019/11/11 03:10
I used the app for literally 15 seconds before it told me I’d have to pay or else I’d have to wait 15 minutes. That’s annoying. I could read a book or watch a movie for free, I don’t have to use this app. That being said, I probably won’t.
STOP SHOWING UP ON MY YOUTUBE ADS

No

No. Just no. 👎🏼
THEYRE SO MONEY HUNGRY
by david found nothng on 2019/11/10 17:17
This this app doesn’t even allow you to choose what want. It gives you only one video/story to view. Then you’ll have to pay for more. Also, you can’t even skip the video or book. You also have to pay to skip too. I deleted the app. It’s pathetic how money hungry they are. It’s almost like they don’t want people to use the app.
Not worth it.
by Blackwidow927 on 2019/11/10 15:54
I literally just downloaded the app. It made me choose horror or romance. I keep seeing all these ads for Trevor and the virgin and figured why not. It’s worth a shot. Literally three seconds into the video it paused and said I had to wait 5 minutes. I legitimately hadn’t gotten to the fourth second and it already was trying to force me to buy a 5 dollar fee or try it for 7 days but it would try to lock me into an automatic renewal. Biggest rip off ever. I’ll stick to YouTube and fan fiction.
Wait 15 minutes
by Layyyy___ on 2019/11/10 14:43
I have already read Trevor and the virgin before when I downloaded the app before. I deleted the app don’t remember why but now you have to watch the whole 15 minutes video and then get 4 minute breaks in between that a lot. App was a lot better before 🤷🏾‍♀️
Hate

Alright
by Maddieloveyy on 2019/11/09 22:37
I hate the fact that we have to wait 4 minutes or to speed it up buy it-
It would stop every 5 minutes
by Mell14982 on 2019/11/09 22:27
It would push you into getting its premium thing. It was really annoying and I really wanted to watch something scary but I couldn’t because it would stop every 7 minutes to make you wait unless you pay.
Annoying
by Jppt007 on 2019/11/09 14:07
I have never written a review for an app because honestly who cares that much. But THIS is the one that pushed me there. After seeing countless adds on every social media platform you can think of, I finally downloaded Hooked to specifically watch Trevor and the virgin. When I opened the app it made me immediately choose between horror and romance. Seeing as how I only downloaded the app for Trevor and the virgin I obviously chose romance. I was pleasantly surprised when Trevor and the virgin immediately started playing. I assumed it was a trailer so you could preview the headlining story on the app before you browsed because that would be smart right? That’s what a normal app would do? But no, after a few seconds, and I mean literally a few seconds, like maybe six.... a notification pops up and muted the video while it plays in the background. The notification says I can sit here for five minutes and look at the countdown and wait to, I assume, actually ENTER THE APP or I can pay for a subscription and skip ahead. Honestly I’m very disappointed and bewildered. An app with so much great advertisement, I’m sure many people have downloaded it but it makes me wonder if it was before they added this ridiculous “pay us or have a terrible experience” intro. I really hope for the apps sake that there’s more to it than continuously begging for money, like I don’t know, giving us the opportunity to actually read or watch stories. Which is the whole point of the app??? Honestly I immediately realized the app is nothing but a money pit. Sad to see such a good idea ruined due to the creators greed. I even tried to read other reviews to see if it was worth it after waiting for the five ridiculous minutes. But all the recent reviews said the same thing. Hope they change this for theirs and our sake.
Really whyyy
by Mfrank1 on 2019/11/09 14:06
When I try a new story the audio from the last story plays which is dumb and you haft to buy something so you don’t haft to wait like five min if you don’t it does it a bunch of times and you haft to sit and wait 5 min
Video
by Skyleigh Kitty Meow on 2019/11/09 08:23
I got to watch a whole 15 seconds of the video and then the audio shut off and it played behind a wait timer pop up that you can’t get rid of. 🙄🙄🙄
Horrible app
by NotPhillipLindsay on 2019/11/09 07:56
This app scammed me $60. Do NOT fall for their bs. Once you download, they automatically start a subscription for 10 dollars EVERY WEEK. Don’t fall for it!!
Welppppp...nevermind!
by keeyco5 on 2019/11/09 06:52
Well i just downloaded this for the first time...and read the reviews on it--as i normally do......needless to say based on the reviews, i will be deleting it before really even getting in to it! Thank Goodness for the "review" option, they saved me from wasting my time! 💪😐
Forcing you to buy from them?
by someone mad about this app on 2019/11/09 05:06
I was only a few seconds into the story and it made me wait five minutes without audio and a giant thing on my screen or buy something from them, overall annoying and they are just trying to get you to buy their “perks” I saw a add about it on YouTube so I downloaded it and I got a add within a minute. Disappointed
Video
by sacvni on 2019/11/09 04:08
I would give you more stars but there are not a lot of videos to entertain people like me so if you want to fix it make more videos Thank you
Videos
by BrooklynClarklol on 2019/11/09 00:00
Why can’t the videos be like free but they pause for 4mins and it gets on my nerves and I don’t like it and you have to pay to get it to not pause and I’m not old enough to pay so why can’t it be free I don’t like that you have to wait 4 minutes on the videos I really want to watch them but then it just stops and I hate it so I rate 1 star
HORRIBLE
by kiara lolz on 2019/11/08 00:16
actors are horrible, this app is BEGGING for you to get their premium stuff, which u gotta buy with real money, then when u first download the app this vid of 15 min comes up and you cant go watch other stories, and when u double click to go ahead, their premium thing comes up.. STOP BEGGING
Free
by unorginiz on 2019/11/07 21:07
This app is a scam why have it free but it makes you have to pay because unorganized🙄
Would Love it...if I had more patience
by sanj.app13 on 2019/11/07 04:42
I don’t understand why there are 5 minute breaks. Once I get to enjoying a story I would rather have quick 30 sec ads in between then random 5 minute breaks. It really makes me avoid the app.
I love this game
by parrrrrrrrrrrerrrrrrrrrrrrrrrk on 2019/11/07 04:41
I really love this app because it is like your actually texting so you come to check out the app
Don’t even bother
by Fryeeee on 2019/11/07 03:19
Dumbest app ever. So many glitches I couldn’t even watch a video. It’s just out to annoy you so much that you sign up and give them money for it. No thanks.
One thing
by nighttimenurus on 2019/11/07 01:49
I absolutely hate the fact that you have to get premium or suffer the long five minute wait when it gets to the good parts! Dislike!!😑😒
Never again
by SSEm67 on 2019/11/06 16:01
Not worth it
Great App. Not for me.
by palatino1013 on 2019/11/06 04:32
I watched Trevor and the Virign for free, using the 7-day trial. Once I decided I don’t want to read any more stories, I went to the help section of the app and read detailed description on how to cancel my subscription. I successfully avoid paying for anything, after I watched the only video I wanted to watch. That’s why I’m leaving a 5 star, but the content of the app only deserves probably 3 stars, if that’s what you’re after.
Wow...
by kailey ❤️💗 on 2019/11/06 00:25
So I just got this app like Five minutes ago and I always see ads about it and I think it’s cool whatever so I get it and the first story you can’t even go to another story like after like 10 seconds in the story you literally have to wait 15 minute breaks for you can just see the rest of the story which I think that’s ridiculous because I want to get an app that I can watch stories and read stories on without having to pay any money because there’s no point in paying for 4.99 a month just see like stupid things and also $11 just to see pictures and videos like what the heck $11 I can literally take a picture what do you me to do sell it for $11 like this absolutely kill us and this is why I think it. Needs a one star so I do not recommend getting this app because all you have to do is pay you can only watch one story and if you try or consider of watching the other ones you have to wait 10 minutes no offense to the creators of this but this is just my opinion and I do not recommend this.
good if u have good games
by 543best123 on 2019/11/05 21:42
the 5 minute wait kinda is disturbing, but not that bad if you have addicting games to pass the time, so, yeah. Other then that it’s the best.
Why?
by mackattack341 on 2019/11/05 13:06
This app is pretty great but I didn’t even have a chance to watch my first story when it just said to wait 5 minutes for no reason. I would like it if it had no interruptions like that but obviously I have to pay for that don’t I? It seems like you might as well have to pay for the whole app.
Update your pain
by datalhxickc on 2019/11/05 02:42
how is a app that i full of s... they make you pay and more that is not. necessary so if they can fix it i will give them a better rating. it is full of s...
15 minute break
by Aerielaeiel on 2019/11/04 18:21
I hate having to stop watching movies/stores because of the ads I downloaded because I actually want to watch or read
15 minutes 😒
by cupid1022❤️❤️ on 2019/11/04 11:43
4 minutes why hooked needs to be able to see the pictures
Hooked!!
by mmonacori on 2019/11/04 00:32
I love Hooked!! I’ve always been one for a good scary campfire story, or a murder mystery and Hooked is really great at giving me those. I highly recommend it if you are also one to like murder mysteries or a romance story. They have both so it’s not just murder mysteries. I have it a 5 star rating and I love it so much!!
Why the wait?!?
by Hizono on 2019/11/03 21:19
I opened the app and I chose to read scary genre and it instantly put up a video and I didn’t want to spend 21 minutes watching the video but I couldn’t get out of the video. All I want is to have the freedom To choose my own story.....
About The Trial
by Ktoomommy on 2019/11/03 21:10
Overall this app is great. But I wish you didn’t need the trial to read and watch things. I originally downloaded the app to watch Trevor and The Virgin, but I can’t t because of the trial. I really do think the 7 day trial is nice, but no trial or paying would be better.
Love it but only one issue
by lk6421 on 2019/11/03 18:55
I’ve had this game for a day and i’m hooked (pun intended). So far everything is super interesting and I can’t put my phone down. The only thing i have is the random five minute breaks that you hate to take if you don’t have a subscription. I guess there has to be something if you don’t pay, but it doesn’t bother me that much, i just switch over to a different app and play games till it’s over. It would also be nice if subtitles were an option for the videos, because most of the time i prefer to have my volume low and read the text. Overall, would definitely recommend this app, just be aware you’ll have to take some breaks!
The reason why I put one ☆....
by Alexis ☆ on 2019/11/03 17:08
The reason is because they won’t let you see the picture unless your premium but I like the old update better because you only watch a video to see the photo or video.
I dislike this app
by bshaywbsnsnaksmskka on 2019/11/03 13:34
This app is annoying with the timer and etc. you think i’m paying money to just watch some short clips and stuff absolutely not i really don’t like this app, these days you have to pay for everything i hate it deleting this app asap.1 star btw;)
SAD
by Fredmanfree on 2019/11/03 13:20
This app is horrible for the simple reasons that - first off it plays whatever story it wants. - second it tries to indirectly FORCE you to buy the premium for 4.99!!! -and if that wasn’t enough, it also gives you a 5 minutes wait about 1 minute into the first story!!!!! WHEN IT TO SPEED UP THE WAIT I PRESSED IT AND GUESS WHAT? IT SENT ME TO THE BUY PREMIUM PAGE !! What a surprise!!!!!!
Best game
by ashyyy_washyyyy on 2019/11/03 03:32
I love this game the only thing o hate is the 5 minute wait but other than that I love it!!!!!!! ♥️
HORRIBLE APP
by Andrea199436 on 2019/11/03 01:35
I’m so mad at this app , I mean the stories are good but after 2 minutes you have to wait 15 MINUTES and if you don’t want to it makes you pay a membership AND THAT IS SO FREAKING ANNOYING I DONT LIKE THOSE MEMBERSHIP , ALSO THIS APP APPEARS ME IN EVERY SINGLE ANNOUNCE
I hate this app

Waiting time
by Kyle.512 on 2019/11/02 20:19
There is 5-15 minute waiting time witch Is way to have to wait
every thing is unnecessary
by Monse._._ on 2019/11/02 20:16
literally you need to pay like what $5 a month just to pick whatever story or show to watch.. REALLY also there’s like pauses EVERY 10 SECONDS OF THE SHOWS. and you have to pay to get them off WOW i hate this app fix it now
Love it but I wish
by phone dragens on 2019/11/02 18:44
I love this app,I just wish I new how rite my own story if that is even possible.I like to iteration people as much as I could so please mack that possible if you can, and leave it some wear any one can see it if they won’t to write a story.
Don’t get this app!!
by dalia smith on 2019/11/02 17:52
I downloaded this app 30 seconds ago, opened it, it asked me if I wanted a scary or romantic story, I picked romantic and I was 10 SECONDS IN WHEN A FREAKING WAIT 5 MINUTES THING CAME UP!!!?!?!? like how am i supposed to enjoy this app if I get a wait right away?? And the movie was still playing when I had to wait 5 minutes. It’s ridiculous, what’s the point of that? So I immediately deleted the app. What a waste of time. All they want is for you to go premium so you can pay $8 a month. They want your money. Don’t get this app unless you want to waste your money.

It take to long
by itzzz_lor3na on 2019/11/02 06:42
Every 5 mins a timer comes up in middle of the video. Like I saw this app in adds and it looked like a good app but when I started watching it sucked cause of the timer. 😡
Gran idea pero...
by Sabrocito17 on 2019/11/02 06:13
La idea de llevar una historia como una simple conversación hace adentrarte y tomar otra perspectiva sobre las historias... es genial, el único pero que encuentro es el pago por semana, es caro, intentaré adaptarme con esperar los 5:00 min de espera y los bloqueos de imágenes.
Terrible
by ZUEZULTRA on 2019/11/02 05:05
Honestly, the videos that are shown are just plain awful. The story itself, the acting, and everything overall is just atrocious. This app was way better before these “videos” came. Before the videos, there was actually some decent stories that was written, not videos, just text stories that had a decent plot. I just wish that those text stories would come back, and not just these basic stories, with boring characters that have no texture or depth into them. I recommend not buying the premium if you plan on using this. It’s highly recommended to avoid wasting your money at all cost
Waiting time
by bbggchbc on 2019/11/02 03:59
There shouldn’t be waiting time every two minutes because you don’t pay 5 dollars a week like that’s ridiculous
It’s ok but...
by nugget the amazing on 2019/11/02 02:41
Ok, I know giving it a 3 star is some wut harsh but it is not that bad. I don’t know if this happens to anyone else but I get bored of a story easily, and me having to wait is not a problem. But I can’t get to another story like I have to go out of the app and refresh it to go to another story. I just got it so I’m not so sure how to work it. And I can’t do anything on it cuz it won’t let me. I don’t know if it os happening to other people but it’s happening to me and it’s very annoying. But it happens all the time and I dont know how to stop it or how to go to another story. Other than that it’s a great app. - nugget
You have to buy the subscription!😡
by 1234567897539274792 on 2019/11/02 02:23
really wanted to watch the videos but 15 seconds later a pop up appeared and I had to wait 5 minutes only to be able to watch fifteen seconds more! It’s dumb. I’m not going to waste my money by buying the subscription I just genuinely thought that it would be a good or at least half-decent app.
Hooked review
by enkdfhhdergbvcdhikjbfujjnbvguu on 2019/11/02 01:48
It’s so stupid that you have pay to get the full story and it’s just a waste of time.
DONT DOWNLOAD
by Johnny-D on 2019/11/01 18:43
This game would not allow me to see the pics unless I paid. This game also made me wait 5 minutes before reading the rest of the story. This game is stupid and you should not get it. 😡
Hooked

It is the boom 💯 I love the romantic story’s and the scary story’s are just to real get this app 😩🌚
Don’t even bother
by Rainy Thursday on the avenue on 2019/11/01 03:46
Literally 30 seconds into a video for the first story I started after downloading the app, a box popped up saying to wait 5 minutes until resuming. Not worth it at all 🙄. Now I remember why I deleted it before.
Where is she
by BIG J 2008 on 2019/11/01 01:38

Extreme stupidity and ad baiting
by WerewolfWill712 on 2019/10/31 22:58
All this app contains is tantalizing videos that intentionally never resolve so you will keep watching ads money grubbing and lazy. And now Apple is promoting them. Makes me want to buy a android... (And androids are sh*t)
To the maker of the app
by finkem00 on 2019/10/31 20:38

Have to pay to watch videos Photos

‼️I HATE THIS APP‼️
by 🌻🌸Nelle🌸🌻 on 2019/10/31 15:32
I had seen hooked all over he place and so I decided I should download because it looked interesting. So in I downloaded it and then it asked me if I wanted to read a scary or romantic story I picked romantic and right in the beginning of the video something popped up and it said 4 MINUTES! And the video just kept going so I missed some stuff! And if this is your way of trying to make money it’s a terrible method you should at least just interrupt the story with like one of those game ads other than that don’t just interrupt the video/story with a 4 minute timer.😕
Completely terrible app
by agababayev on 2019/10/31 11:51
Completely terrible app completely misleading app completely re-pal app completely different then the commercial about the app
Didn’t really like it
by LolCurrito on 2019/10/30 23:48
I get daily ads and I have to wait for this stupid timer for order to let me watch this trailer or something
It’s ok...but really bad.
by Roger Fedral on 2019/10/30 23:04
If your fine spending $5 a week...it’s fine. BUT, if your not...every 30 seconds you have to wait 5:00 for a timer. And when that runs out, your aloud to.
Your hooked? More like your high!
by theblakjew on 2019/10/30 17:28
Are used to read the version of hooked that was text messages for scary stories and I must admit it was very entertaining and chilling so I recently got a new device and decided I will try out the new version of hooked only to get three seconds into the actual app am I prompted to join a subscription and then at the end of the trial (Seven days later) you have to pay five bucks. And then every week you would have to pay five more dollars that’s a total of $20 a month are you guys HIGH!!?? no one in their right mind will pay Netflix $20 a month so what do you think you’re offering me!
Bad review
by read tis on 2019/10/30 15:09
Hooked is a scam it only wants you to pay and I was watch Trevor and the Virgin and after like 2 minutes it stopped and wanted me to pay and I did pay and it still didn’t work
Exepcitional
by i didnt even use the app on 2019/10/29 21:54
Trevor and the virgin was AMAZING and I started watching others and it became a habit
Awful and annoying...actually the worst!!
by mrswillhite on 2019/10/29 17:57
You download the “free” app and it immediately asks to to buy the full version or do the 7 day trial that automatically renews. When you get around that, it opens a video, which you don’t get to choose (I’m assuming you only get to choose your video in the paid version). Then, a couple minutes in, a timer pops up that makes you wait 5 minutes before you can continue watching the video and under the time it says that you can continue watching if you by the full version...this part is not an ad...it’s literally a black screen with a timer...taunting you to try and con you into paying 15 dollars for a month of the full one. I deleted the app simply because I don’t like apps that try to manipulate people into paying for the full version and you’re not Netflix ...I’m Not paying 15 dollars for the full version, especially when the free version sucked so bad!
Unfair
by 😇💙😇💚 on 2019/10/29 15:25
Basically, if you really want to see a full story you HAVE to subscribe and pay the $5 a month. Stories a great, but some of us are poor and don’t want to spend $60 a year on unlimited access to STORIES.
Not so free trial?
by kprice8888 on 2019/10/29 07:33
Downloaded to watch TaTV/2, and it said “free, 1 week trial and $4.99/week after. I was immediately charged the $4.99 and had ZERO free trial time. Aside from that, TaTV/2 were good.
Doesn’t work
by Skjsidbdisnf on 2019/10/29 06:03
I downloaded it and it just took me straight to an episode I can’t exit out so I can’t look at anything else and it keeps on asking me to pay for a subscription.
Horrible
by shdbbddbdb d on 2019/10/29 03:18
I would give it zero stars but I can’t cant eve not get to the home screen without getting a 15 minute wait ridiculous
Mad
by I_love_goats on 2019/10/29 03:10
It is great...unless you don’t have premium then it is awful
Pay to play
by emilia hebert on 2019/10/29 01:14
Horrible set up you have to be premium or ever minute of watching or reading you have to have a five minute break. There should be options for free and not have to wait like that it makes it so not worth the effort
So freakin good evening

scam
by Bigtimehotshot on 2019/10/28 23:57
would be a cool app if it didn’t require you to get the upgrade right after downloading it
Stupidly unrealistic
by Love_pink001 on 2019/10/28 23:55
It’s like if a 13 year old boy tried to write a PG-13 high school musical And the other stories aren’t scary at all. I wrote better stories in English 1
Hooked
by babbypapa on 2019/10/28 22:43
This app is actually telling a story I can understand is lovely
Misleading!!!
by perttyQb on 2019/10/28 21:51
How can you charge me without the app showing a price I will not continue with this.
Don’t download
by Apple User ✅ on 2019/10/28 21:25
It got too many ads plus it wants you to pay 5 dollars a week for a 15 minute episode
Money Hungry
by reviewer760 on 2019/10/28 17:16
what a waste of time to even download it
Do not buy this app unless you are willing to pay for it!
by Stardust Sparkle453 on 2019/10/28 16:10
Right off the back I was asked to buy a 7 day free trial, then pay once a month for the stories. That’s not worth it in my opinion. If you are willing to pay for it then go for it. No guarantees it’s going to be good quality stories. Good luck. Hoped this helped.
Ehh
by P/E forever👌🏻😘😘 on 2019/10/28 14:25
I was really exited to get the app but absoluly hate having to watch the story at the beginning
Amazing but room for improvements
by Awesomechink420 on 2019/07/05 09:14
Hooked is a great and my favorite app for reading overall. The stories always keep me on my toes and unlike most other horror/romance/other genres reading apps, you can read the stories even if you don’t subscribe. But, the only reason why I gave his app a four star rating is because there is a fifteen minute pause in the middle of any story, audio, or video if you don’t pay for the full access. I would love to pay for full access, but the problem is that my parents won’t allow me to pay the money. Many of my friends who also have hooked have the same problem. If you (the person who’s reading this review) are an adult, you don’t have to worry about this, but if you are a teen or a child, it’s likely that you have parents who control your payments. (Unless your an arrogant, spoiled brat) On the other hand, it makes sense that if you don’t subscribe, you shouldn’t get all that you get if you do get full access, but I hope that the developers can shorten the pause by some time. Overall, hooked is still an amazing app for reading. It doesn’t matter if apps have flaws because there isn’t one that doesn’t.
Nope.
by ANNOYED X A BILLION on 2019/03/22 00:01
Okay, I just wanna start out by saying this app was in my ads almost daily. I thought about downloading it multiple times, but figured I wouldn't have much time to read anyway. Finally, I was convinced & decided i'd try it. I loved it at first, and by "at first", i mean the first 3 minutes. Then, out of no where, the app crashed. I waited a minute & got back on, & was getting into the story(which btw, i think the story was very entertaining & well written), then it crashed again. After 3 more times of that I was done with it. Also, I don't like how you have to wait 15 minutes randomly throughout. What is the point of that? I read for 2 minutes & have to stop in the middle of it for a 15 minute intermission? I'm suppose to stop in the middle of reading to be told that I can buy a 15 dollar subscription if I don't wanna wait 15 minutes every 2 minutes to continue my story? No thanks! Do you even know how long it took me to get to the 15 minute intermission mark without the app crashing a million times!? I get the app has to make money. Which is why not seeing the images dosen't bother me or other little things like that. I mean you could change it to where you have to be a member to write stories, see images, choose your own stories, things like that. Honestly, the stories are so good, people might actually not mind paying! But to stop the story every 2 minutes seems selfish & frankly, annoying. Theres plenty more reading apps, I can just download one of those.
Good but annoying
by MiniWinner7 on 2018/05/24 13:21
This app is one of my favorite apps on my phone. I’ve read many stories on it and so far all of them have been super interesting. I (personally) like the horror ones. But their are a few things that I think they should change about this app. 1st of all I think it’s stupid that you have to wait 15 Minutes during a story. And sometime the 15 min thingy will pop up at random parts in the story and it’s really annoying. I think they should change this so that it’s only like 5 min and it doesn’t pop up in the middle of the stories. 2nd of all to see any pictures or to skip the 15 min you have to get “Hooked Unlimited” which cost $15 for a month. I still think they should have this but not for EVERY picture because usually the pictures are there to move the story along but when you can’t see them you have no idea what’s happening. Other then these things I think the app it pretty good and has great stories.
15 Minutes
by AnimalLover12🐉🐈🐆 on 2019/05/11 07:50
I had at first deleted the app about 2-3 years ago since it was boring and I didn’t like how you had to pay to see the pictures. No biggie. I then repeatedly see a bunch of ads specifically about “Trevor and the Virgin” and all the ones about the whole “don’t let mom in” and “grab the mysterious shotgun that you never knew about”. I got curious and decided, “hey. Some of the stories look cool.” So I downloaded it and it asks me if I want to choose between TWO genres of stories: horror or romance. Keep in mind it’s almost 4 am and I really don’t want to be reading horror right now and I’m not in the mood for romance so I HAVE to choose one of them. I decide romance and I was getting ready to pick my story that I was going to read. I get in he app and it instantly puts me in some video. I was watching Trevor and the Virgin. Not the best choice but whatever. Literally 8 seconds in it says “You can either wait 15 minutes or pay $7-8 a month with a thirty day free trial.” I’m not waiting FIFTEEN MINUTES to watch a FIFTEEN MINUTE VIDEO. I don’t see the point in that. I really think that you should be allowed to pick what you want to read and have more options for the different types of genres. Sure, horror and romance probably are the most popular but not EVERYONE likes it. I also think that the whole fifteen minute wait time or pay up is absurd.
This is just really inappropriate
by cloudy the sky on 2019/10/26 23:07
Ok so when I got 🅗🅞🅞🅚🅔🅓 I saw this it say romantic and scary and I thought why would people like romantic ??? Like what and I say anyways I saw a ad and it’s about hooked and I saw this girl and boy and I thought it was scary but it was so inappropriate there where kiss and girl make ing out with hot boys and some where kissing in the neck and girls where takeing off their Close and I did not looked at it and the was done then my mom and sister come and they saw that what are you watching and I saw nothing because I did not want my mom and dad found a really inappropriate things then I stared playing it and I saw the movie that was the ad then I scroll down and I saw more inappropriate THINGS so I shut my phone of and I went to bed because I was sooooooo scared of the app I’m little sister saw that I was scared and I said WHAT and she went away and I keep getting bad grades i thought it was the app so I went back on it and I saw so many ROMANTIC STUFF and I thought I put on scary mode but it seems it’s broken so I looked at the. Battery and it was 5 percentage I charged it but it was not charging so I did it harder and I accidentally put on a inappropriate show/movie so it did not let me stopped it so I called mom and dad and they saw really sexy things so mom and dad throw my Computer and I was so scared so that was my broken HOOKED story
Why the 15 minute break?
by iiToXxiCii on 2019/05/18 13:31
I have several complaints about this app. First of all, you only get to view the story for like 2 minutes. After around two minutes, you have to wait FIFTEEN to be able to read again. Also, to skip the break, you have to purchase a membership. I am NOT such a big fan of that. Please either decrease the duration of the break or just get rid of it as a whole. Secondly, you have to get the full version to view the pictures, and that's around $11. Seriously, $11 just to view pictures? I WILL NOT accept that. Decrease the price of the full version, please, and allow everyone to see the pictures without purchasing the full version. Third and foremost, the text messages appear too slowly. This means that instead of viewing like 2 minutes of texts, I'm looking at around 1:40. Please increase the pace at which the text messages appear. Short summary: I have several complaints. First of all, you only get to view the story for 2 minutes, then it's a 15 minute break. To skip the break, you have to purchase a membership. Secondly, you have to purchase the full version to view pictures, and the full version is around $11, which I WILL NOT accept. Third, the messages appear too slowly, decreasing the amount of messages that I could potentially view.
Slow and you cant see the pictures TL,DR at the end
by Abz Wolf on 2019/03/18 13:53
Ok so at first I downloaded this app so me and my friend could read scary stories at first it was cool but one thing I noticed is it didn't let me pick the story so that was a bit annoying because I saw A ad for the app and the story they were telling was the one I wanted to read and secondly it's very slow the text messages take forever to show up on the screen I would like for that to be fixed 3rd of all you have to buy the full version to see the pictures so me and my friend just made up the pictures because we are odd people lol 😂 but seriously the full version was like 11$ and I'm not paying that much for an app that I'm leaving a good amount of complaints on also in the middle of the story it said we had to wait 14 minutes to continue reading why tho that's so stupid lastly the stories take forever to get to the point like I like some suspense but seriously 😒 me and my friend didn't even find out what was so dangerous about brad before it stopped I'm sorry I wouldn't recommend this app it's slow and over all not that great TL,DR the app is slow you can't see the pictures too much suspense and it stopped in the middle of the story and said we had to wait 14 minutes also didn't let me pick the story do not recommend
Umm..
by SOMEWHERE FROM SOMETHIG1241539 on 2018/06/11 04:17
I wanna start this by saying the best part about this app was the writing tool. It was wayyyy better before you had to delete it. You could see a part of people’s minds and explore way further, and actually dive into the pit of reading. But of course like every good app, someone found a way to ruin some of the fun. If it was brought back I would be extreeemely happy and rate this app five stars DEFINITELY. But sadly, if you don’t listen to the reviews and bring back the writing tool that EVERYONE enjoys, I’m uninstalling the app. Face it, everyone loved writing stories and there were really good player made stories out there. Everyone loves the write a story feature and everyone would rate five stars more likely if the writing tool was brought back. Don’t let my couple minutes of my life be wasted on this comment and actually make a change about something that EVERYONE misses. You would get way better reviews and I will recommend it to all of my friends, because most of them deleted it because they wrote stories. We had a group circle where each of us would write a story of our own and show t to the others. You would be doing EVERYONE a favor by adding the writing tool back. We all miss it. Thanks for reading this and thank you for your time.
I understand why they call it hooked!
by emily00sunshine on 2018/08/11 11:36
These stories keeps you so entertained it’s unbelievable. I always find myself going to this app to read the next story. I also really like that some are a couple of “chapters” so it draws you in more to see what is going to happen next. There has not been one story yet that I haven’t smiled, chuckled or was shocked while reading these on my phone. I do not understand why people gave a 1 or 2 star review. Reviews are for how entertaining or good an app is, not to bash them for having to wait 15 mins to keep reading on. Honestly 15 mins isn’t that long, and if you really don’t want to wait, then pay for the subscription. Yes it’s $15 a month but come on people, this IS a business and they need to make money somehow so they can keep growing. I personally don’t want to pay for the subscription either so I just wait the 15 mins, it’s really not that bad. Honestly. I secretly like it because it forces me to put down my phone because I’m so hooked to this app! Thanks guys!
I WANT CREATE YOUR OWN STORYS BACK
by Skippitdydoda on 2018/06/23 15:13
I just recently downloaded this app, and I was looking forward to making my own chat stories. I was already brainstorming ideas (I know, I’m a nerd)! But when I discovered there was no option for that, I went here, to the App Store, to investigate. I read some reviews, and I noticed that some people were complaining about the lack of making your own stories, and that they wished that option was back. Well, me to! I really wanted to have the freedom of writing my own thing for people to read and enjoy. I am pretty sure (from reading the reviews) that other people want the freedom as well. Bringing back the make your own story option would make my Hooked experience much more happy. I am only able to give three stars for no freedom of making chat stories, and the fact that I am a little salty about this change of what I thought would be a more creative and free app game (I digress, I digress). If the Hooked team decides to bring back the make your own chat story option back, I would be much more happy and delighted. Thank you!
Great idea, but...
by LanieSpurrell on 2019/03/30 13:21
Ok, ill admit I was hooked when the ad came up in my favorite game, Run Race 3D. But I was not hooked AT ALL this time. And yes, it was a great idea to make an app like this, but this is ridiculous! I was in the middle of my first video, and I only got to watch 15 seconds of it and then a big pop-up appears saying I have to wait 14 minutes along with 53 seconds. So about 15 minutes. If I’m going to have to wait 15 minutes to watch 15 seconds of a video, I’m just going to buy my own romance and horror books and movies. I might as well delete the app. I will keep the app for now, but if you don’t do something about this stupid “wait 15 minutes for 15 seconds” thing. Because this is ridiculous. Either get rid of the time thing, or make the books and videos even with the time range. All I wanted was a few chills down my spine, but I guess that isn’t going to happen. I do not recommend this to any of my friends and family, including you. I feel guilty saying this about such an amazing idea, but it’s just the truth. I look forward to your response and latest update. Everybody who agrees, dump hooked and get the app READIT. Sincerely, LMS
Just got and already have problems
by Kaetlyn613 on 2019/10/21 22:35
I literally just downloaded the app and started playing a video. First off you have two choice, scary or romantic. I chose romantic because I wanted to see what there was. You don’t even get a choice of the story you watch and you can’t change it to scary after it’s already started. Then randomly not even 15 seconds into the video another “free 7 day trial and after that it’s $4.99 a month” ad shows up. It’s not even a minute in only 12 seconds and the video keeps playing while you sit through the wait time which I wouldn’t mind but come on 12 second in that’s a little much at least make it like a minute and give us the options of what story we want like I really don’t want to watch “Trevor and the Virgin” like not my thing. Then it won’t even let me play the video after the wait time and the “free trial” ad keeps popping up. I was really excited about this app but there is no choices and you can’t change your decision not everyone wants to see the same genre everytime like I like romance but now I’m in the mood to read/watch something scary and there is no way to change it.
Broken app
by WriterTool on 2017/10/16 12:28
I downloaded Hooked a while back because I loved to write stories and wanted to try text stories. I absolutely ADORED this app and the wonderful story-writer it had, but lately Hooked has been giving me so many frustrating problems that I can’t WAIT to be rid of it. They claim ‘follow the steps in the app’ for exporting stories; I have searched EVERYWHERE in this app for a story exporting tool (so I can switch my stories over to Tap), low and behold, I have not found it. There are even some stories that I MYSELF have written that I cannot even access because the app crashes EVERY SINGLE TIME I TRY. So hurray, unless this is yet another bug they need to fix, I’m gonna lose the work I put into my stories because this darn thing can’t even run properly. Not to mention beforehand when actually writing the stories, there were so many occasions of the writing-tool bugging out and not letting me delete duplicated chapters or rearrange character names and colors. This was a fun app but now it’s just broken. My advice? Forget about Hooked and switch to Tap. They at least program it COMPETENTLY.
Why
by K.N.ICKY on 2018/05/29 00:05
I don’t really understand the logic behind this decision. Why on earth would you make an option where readers can create their own stories, and then delete it afterwards? What was the point of giving users that opportunity if you were just going to take it away? I know it might seem like I’m overreacting, but as an aspiring writer, I think I have every right to be as upset as I am. I’m sure there are thousands of users who agree. Either give users the option to write or don’t. But I don’t really find it fair to take away such a huge feature. If you regret making that option, that’s on you. But to just suddenly take it away and delete all of the stories that users have probably spent a decent amount of time creating isn’t right. That’s what made this app so different and fun. But now it’s like any other chat story app— worse, actually, considering the circumstances. But hey, the stories that were left are still pretty decent, so I’ll give an extra star for that. But otherwise, my overall rating is a solid two stars until this situation is fixed.
Unbelievable...
by Cleo0530 on 2019/05/30 22:43
I downloaded Hooked before when it only had stories on it and I actually made a few of my own. But then I had to delete it for storage sake. I saw so many ads for it and how it has “videos” now and I was really intrigued. So, I downloaded it because I thought I’d give it a try. I started up the app and it asked me if I like scary or romantic (I chose romantic, obviously) and it started playing the most popular video. I think it was called “Trevor and the Virgin”? Something like that. So, the video played...and then it stopped after 15 SECONDS and told me that I had to wait 15 MINUTES before I could continue watching OR I could buy a subscription to the app. I would understand if it was after each episode that I had to wait, but 15 SECONDS into ONE episode?! No thank you! As a now college student, I don’t have the ability to pay for something like this. When I had it before, there was absolutely NO MONEY involved. Now just because they added “videos”, we have to pay for it? Nope, I’m good. I enjoyed all the stories and the app before, but now I apparently need to have money to enjoy it now. That helps, thanks.
How Awesome Hooked Is
by @#catintheflame on 2018/05/25 02:54
Hooked is self explanatory, it gets you hooked. It gives you choices of horror and romance, and it gives you an in between choice. Hooked is a great app and it kind of takes you into a different reality, it gives you tons of choices for your stories and if I wanted to go to the very bottom of the let's say for example, "romantic horror" section. I would still be scrolling even if I started scrolling on Monday, and it's Friday! It's very well organized and it has a beautiful design. It shows you pictures and videos of whatever's happening. It has an audiobook option and it lets you read at your own pace, it lets you go back and just press the button as fast as you can to fast forward. Overall it's a great game and I literally play it every chance I get which is at least every day.
Lost me already
by Ashlynn124 on 2019/10/21 02:27
So I saw the ads like everyone else and thought Trevor and the virgin story looked pretty appealing. I’ve never had this app before so I downloaded it and in that processed I read the reviews so I was already skeptical about it. Well then I try to give them a shot I open the app and it asks me if I want romantic or scary. I click romantic hints cause I got on their for the Trevor and the virgin story that looked cute. Right after I clicked romantic it brought me to the show and started playing on its own. Shows him knocking on the door and her opening it and her continuing to say “Romeu has it Trevor has the biggest you know what” then it pauses and pops up an add saying to skip adds it’s only $4.99 a week. A FREAKING WEEK! So many other apps have more to offer I can watch 200 movies on Netflix for less than that. I tried to skip that and then it has a timer over the video as the video kept playing counting down from 5 so not only are they asking way to much but they also allowed me to only wast 15 second probably not even of the video so not enough for me to get hooked or care to pay at all. So it’s a waste for me
Requires a $15 a month subscription
by Wt loss 11 on 2017/10/05 06:36
I think the concept is good and the stories are intriguing but there is no way this app deserves $15 a month. I tried the free version which allows about 1 min of reading texts before you have to wait 30 min to continue reading. The story line is interesting enough to keep me coming back for the ending but not enough to get me to start another "free" story or sign up for a $15 a month subscription. $15 a month for stories in the form of texts; no grammar, no writing skills, just texts =no way! This should be free with advertising and no waiting period to continue the story and then maybe it would be worth the time. I read the 1st story and I'm embarrassed to admit I returned 5x after the 30 minute waiting periods for a stupid ending that wasn't even clear if it was actually over. I'm so annoyed to have wasted my time I will delete the app and never look back. Why would anyone be stupid enough to think they would "hook" people into subscribing for $15 a month. I wont even invest my time into reading another "free story" let alone my money. Not a smart business move for the app creators.
NAH, NOT DOING THIS
by Michael, one cool guy on 2018/01/04 04:52
This app is posting ads all over the place, so 26 years later, I decide to go for it. You start reading your spooky stories, & all you get is these picture messages. Well duh, I wanna look at the spooky pics. OOPS SORRY, GOTTA PAY $15 FOR THE SPOOKY PICS & STUFF. Well you decide to get over the pics, AND GUESS WHAT!!! You have to pay if you wanna keep reading, or you have to wait 30 minutes. In 30 minutes, I’m already over the trash story. What in the world would compel me to go back to it 30 minutes later??? Maybe if they were asking for a few bucks a month, I’d be down for some spooky pics, BUT NO, 15 DOLLARS???? I could buy like 3 Filet-O-Fish meals with that!!! I could buy like 15 McDonald’s Orange Fantas with that (minus tax of course). I could do literally anything else with that money. If you want some good spooky stories that aren’t gonna make you pay, you might as well just go on Reddit or something. Maybe you should just watch a movie. MAYBE YOU SHOULD SIT OUTSIDE IN THE DARK BECAUSE AT LEAST IT IS FREE. This is asinine, & I will not stand for this. Is this what no net neutrality is going to be like??? To conclude this essay, anything else > this app.
Nah.
by вlanĸтearѕ on 2019/05/30 14:28
Okay, let’s be honest. We are ALL annoyed at the fact that the app crashes and makes us wait a 15 minute intermission. My phone has crashed at least 23 times all the way from when I started the app 1 week ago. Oh and let’s not get started on how it makes us wait a 15 minute intermission after 10 seconds of me watching/ reading the story. This app has gotten in my nerves way to much. Especially with the fact that I can’t read one single story without my phone crashing. I just read the first part of a story and walacazam, it crashed and made me wait a 15 minute mark right after my phone crashed. It made me wait the mark not even 10 seconds of the story. I understand you’re trying to make money but it’s entirely aggravating. I mean, what are you trying to do? Make money and make us wait for no reason? Hm? This is the most aggravating app I’ve downloaded off of the App Store so far. Tbh, yarn is better than y’alls app. They do the same thing but it’s not as aggravating. The app doesn’t crash, nor does it make us wait. Get your app to the point that it DOESNT crash. Get it working correctly. Smh.
Good but need some work
by Colep508 on 2017/11/26 03:30
I used to really love this app. Don’t get me wrong I still enjoy it but recently I’ve seen something go downhill for this app. The 30 Minute timer is honestly so annoying why not like 10 minutes because that’s the reason I deleted the app on the first place(I’ve got it back recently though). One thing I’ve noticed though is that about a forth of the time I wait my time and I click once and it says I have to wait another 30 minutes. That is very frustrating. Also this app is not worth $15 a month $5 is a lot better because don’t get me Wrong this is a good app but again it is just stories in the form of texts between people (usually). And personally I hate that they took out the writing tool. I really enjoyed it. I never really wrote any myself but I loved to read my friends’ work and now that it is gone you can’t write. So the reason I’m giving this 3/5 stars is the Pricing the Wait Time and the taking away of the Writing tool. I hoped this helped:)
My opinion
by the best to learn math on 2019/04/10 03:33
I downloaded this app like last week and I like it but there are some reasons why I don’t. First of all, after reading so much of it, you have to stop and they don’t randomly make you stop for 15 minutes. They wait until it gets to the good parts to make you wait. When they make you wait, you have a choice to wait the 15 minutes or to pay some money. I don’t like this. I understand that the app needs to make money but there are other ways to do that. One way is that you can pay to write your own stories. This is a really good way to get people to pay. You could also pay to see the pictures and videos. But to pay to continue reading, that’s not a good way. These stories are really good and entertaining but I wouldn’t pay to read when there are more apps that I don’t have to pay for. I’m my opinion, I think that you should really think about what I am saying and change this. It will really make your app better and more people will get it.
Plz read: DO NOT GET THIS APP!!!!!
by Hooked is just being copied on 2019/02/19 22:26
Look, I know 1 star reviews are pretty harsh- BUT WHEN IT IS NECESSARY, I MUST USE IT! To start, I used to have this app a while ago. It was awesome. 10/10. I loved writing stories, sharing them with friends, and sitting for HOURS upon HOURS reading, I loved it! A couple years later, I remembered how much I loved it and wanted to get "hooked" (hehe) again. I downloaded it, and BOY OH BOY. They don't have photos (like what?!), there are INCREDIBLY UNBELIEVABLE wait times for your next story (I could wait in a line for a roller coaster and be off of it before the time to wait is over), and possibly worst of all is NO WRITING TOOL! Who even is making the stories now?! Bots? Or are they just keeping popular authors and forgetting the up-and-coming or non-popular authors? Ugh. Unbelievable. I deleted the app as soon as I found this out. PLEASE. CHANGE. IT. BACK. They obviously did it for money, so are you happy now? With so many people deleting the app, you probably have less than you started with. Hope your happy. Would not recommend to anyone now. Worst app ever. Thank you for reading this if you have gotten this far.
Not what I expected
by carlahart73 on 2018/01/26 19:19
How do you delete this stupid app! When I downloaded they were suppose to have pictures and audio scary stories. The pictures are stupid and not scary. And I can’t find a scary audio since the first trial version. It needs more pictures more sound more scary active stories. With pictures sent. Sounds in first story should have included a crying baby at least once. I’m going to keep looking before trial ends but so far. The stories are not audible and the picture could be so so much better. Keep me interested like the story of mom killing the dad. But the ending. The mother should have come for the baby. If baby was taken 3 days. Why didn’t it starve to death. Why didn’t the sister attempt to feed it. She should have found a bunky or a baby bag with juice or something in it. It would have been cool if the sister would have been a nursing mother and had her on child. She could have blew come minds when she nursed the baby to keep it quiet. I’m just not happy with a story line that couldn’t happen. A baby must eat. Hope to find more scary audibles. Hope they exist. If not I’m gone.
New updates destroyed it
by 😝faces on 2018/11/27 01:31
I used to love this app. Me and my friends would write ridiculous stories and make ourselves laugh until we couldn’t. We made a lot of mementoes on the app, and the update the got rid of the writing tool just killed the app for me. I might not have been so upset if they kept the stories you already made, but they deleted a ton of stories I had written and made memories with. They also deleted a lot of stories I was reading, because the people writing them didn’t work for hooked or whatever. The app has been sitting in my folder, untouched, for almost a year now. I can’t delete things on my IPhone thanks to a forgotten password but if I could delete this app I would do it in a heartbeat. I can’t stand looking at it, knowing all the memories I lost because the stories are gone. Sure, I might remember the fun and laughter, but the only way to rekindle the feeling of happiness is to actually go back to the stories and reread them, to make everyone remember. It’s just... sad, I guess. I don’t know why they decided to delete the writing tool, but doing so has ruined the app for me.
Are you kidding
by Candice.1026! on 2018/05/16 20:23
I deleted this app a while back in like 2016 or something of the sort and I saw ads for it and was like, I remember writing stories for fun on here with my friends! So I got it again to see the weird,funny, and creepy stories we wrote when I realized they TOOK AWAY THE WRITING TOOL! I was so confused so I figured at it was re-located! but boy was I wrong! They just straight up threw it out the window, I don't see the reasoning on why they decided only professional writers can write on there! Adding this writing blew up the app so shouldn't they add more writing features so more people will want to get the app and pay for the rediculous cost of premium! If they do that then the app will be noticed way more! I also think they should have aloud us to keep our stories even if they just un-published them and left for us I would be fine, and yes I have heard about the email that hook sent out about this update from Google since I was so confused, but it is so rediculous that they would take away a feature that made them so popular!
The stops between the words
by Ashley _Rainbow🐼🐵🦄 on 2019/06/13 00:45
I think it is so annoying that you read for almost at least 2 minutes then you have to stop for 15minutes so you can read it again .Also I hate how you can’t see the picture with out paying for it you can if you pay, NO I AM NOT PAYING THAT WHY I AM READING ONLINE IN THE BEGINNING TO NOT HAVE TO PAY FOR THE BOOK .so please stop making you have to pay it is so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so FREAKING ANNOYING, so please please make it free so when you are reading you don’t have to stop for 15 minutes to finish reading and so you don’t have to pay to see the picture. Because I think it good app but you get to the good part in the book and there is a picture but you can’t see it because you have to pay. I think this game hocked is a very very good game but there are so problems in the game so I will really appreciate if you guys can fix the paying problem please and thank you.................... 😊
Subscription Is Too Expensive
by wizboss1019 on 2017/10/12 19:42
I enjoy reading all of the stories in the app. I can deal with the whole "wait 30 minutes to continue" thing. My only complaint it that the subscription service is just too much. I understand that everyone nowadays needs to earn money somehow, but fifteen dollars is just too expensive for the stories. What my suggestion would be as a compromise, lower the price to about $5-$7, give free users access to the pictures, and for the subscribers only, give them the ability to write stories as well as giving them offline access (like the downloading music feature from other apps). In doing so, this will be more affordable to users, and let subscribers feel more involved. Although one thing that everyone would hate. Ads. Don't give ads. No one enjoys waiting even longer after a 30 minute wait to continue reading. Thank you for reading my review, and I hope you have a good day.
A shame.
by BellaSimone_ on 2019/04/16 00:51
I’ve seen this app through advertisement for as long as I can remember. No matter what social media app I use, there it is. But there is just one story that they share ALL the time and I have to say, it looked interesting. So after months and months and months of skipping, I decided—“Hey why not.” I open the game for the first time and a little thing pops up asking what story you want, I click romantic just because it was the first thing I clicked. The story that I’ve seen a million times starts to play. I get excited and to my amazing disappointment, the video/story plays for 15 FREAKING SECONDS. 15!!!! After those 15 seconds, a 15 MINUTE TIMER STARTS, expecting you to either wait that long or purchase some stupid access pass. Like wth!? I understand that apps have to make money but that is just a ridiculous. My recommendation is, if you want to spend $10 or more on this app, go right ahead but if you’re like me, don’t even bother. It’s honestly a shame because they have such great stories on here too.
Great App But......
by PlayBoxGames on 2018/01/13 06:27
.... I love the app it is great. I really love that you can get it and read stories for free that are decently long. The stories are addicting, dramatic, scary, and mysterious. I love reading them especially The Watcher and Clowns, but I wish there was a in app way where you could write your own stories. Like you guys could add an editor button and a New Story button because I have some great ideas for some stories. So this app would be five star if it had a edit button. So please editors of this app please, please, please add an editor mode. Just think how many more people downloading your app if someone told their friend, “Hey do you have any Romantic, Horror, Sci-fi, it mystery ideas. If so Download Hooked, so you can make your own stories.” If you do end up adding this feature thank you. Sincerely, - A Hooter
It's alright
by 👍👎🏻👌🏻 on 2017/10/24 20:35
Again I would rated three stars, because it is an all right app. But it does involve a whole a lot of waiting. Just like yarn. Another app like this one. Except in this one you have to wait longer and in yarn and have to wait a little less. Things cost more money. And you can't see your images. But on the bright side I didn't know how to operate the app and it was kind of confusing in the beginning but then the app grow on me so I deleted the app called Yarn I would suggest not having The app yarn because it takes up a lot of space and it is just not as good as hooked is. Because you really get hooked. These are scarier stories they only revolve around scary. So if you have the app Yarn delete it and this one is so much better. Yarn would be around one or two stars this one is a good 3 1/2 it's not the best app in the world but it's better than most apps like this. If you thought my review on this app is good please leave a like!
Hooked
by Gdhjdjjdjdjjxhdjjsjdkd on 2018/03/09 03:10
This app that has a lot of stories, is amazing to me. I’ve also watched the short films of it and they were creepy as hell. But I have two problems for this app, one is that why would you have to pay to read a lot of pages continually? My second question is that why would you also have to pay to see the picture cause then it gets really boring and no one likes it. Right now I am waiting for it to load it again and btw, I am reading the story “Dzuma”. And it is pretty creepy. I’ve gotta say that the people who created this app really worked really hard on this but I will ask you if you can cancel the payment thingy of the images cause a lot of people want to know what is behind that picture and otherwise, I’ve gotta say this app is was one and very helpful cause it is understandable!
Horrible
by thecrazyduuuude on 2019/09/08 04:26
This is a money begging app. I liked the stories it had so I said why not try it so I started watching the video in the beginning and after only 2 minutes it tells me to wait 20 minutes and if I want that to stop happening I have to pay 20 a month. I actually spend more time waiting than actually reading. I would never recommend this game because it is the most horrible money begging app. Only reason why you made this app is to make money off of it. You don’t try to make the people who play it happy at least and if you want to enjoy the app you have to pay 20 a month so never EVER download it. If you want to make the game better here are my suggestions: please do not make people wait 15 mins, do not make people pay $20 a month to read stories without having to wait, if you want to make money then add some passes people would want but don’t remove the main experience that people can enjoy in the app and that’s my suggestions! Please try to make the app better and I’ll consider downloading it again.
Money begging
by masonmehol on 2019/03/19 22:20
So I was on Snapchat and scrolling through recommendations and I saw the hooked story and I read the thing and I downloaded it. When I got on, it just led me straight to a story which is kind of bad kind of good.. no home menu or anything. So I read the story and the texting came up with a blurred out picture. I clicked on it to see it, and it was just like “pay your money that you need for an iTunes app that begs for money! Only 40 dollars a year!” And I was like “bruh” and I just kept scrolling through. I had to resist the urge to click the pictures.. that’s sad. So I kept reading until I was a pretty far way in. Suddenly it just comes up with “keep reading if you buy this and that” it also came up with a 15 minute timer that said with it: “start reading again in:” I closed the app and deleted it since it was a money begging app. It’s like Fortnite where you waste your precious dollars on a stupid thing. Do not download this unless you are willing to spend 5 bucks weekly for a membership.. that’s 260 dollars a year. For an app.
WAIST OF TIME DUE TO TOO MANY BUGS!!!!!
by Drea Manikowski on 2019/10/04 04:33
First off, there is a lot of good stories if you actually through them, but the app crashes ALL THE TIME, to where i have to delete it and reinstall it eveytime just to be able to get back on, but not only that being annoying it also has me select between horror or romantic, and every single time it’s the same two videos I’ve already watched and there is no way to exit out of them to finally get to the menu so i can go back to which ever story I was reading at the moment. So my options are to once one of the videos I’ve already watch but also one is 30 minutes long and the other is 15 minutes, I do NOT want to sit through a video that long that I’ve ALREADY SEEN MULTIPLE TIMES NOW. I’ve given this app more than enough chances to the point that I have decided to sadly stop trying. So unless both of these bugs are taken care of I will no longer be using this app anymore, it seems to be more of a hassle and waist of my time, that it’s not even worth the entertainment anymore!!!!!!!
This is unreal!
by ppppppppuuuuuuupppppppyyyyyyy on 2019/03/16 03:44
I love your stories but it is the dumbest thing ever That when you started a story you can’t finish it and when you get to a certain point you have to wait 15 minutes or whatever! I mean I understand that you have to pay to see pictures or something but I am only nine and I have a lot of free time so I wanted an app that I could literally get hooked on but its to much to take away from the player. I have never gotten so mad at a game or wrote a review worse than this because this the stupidest thing I have thing I have ever heard of!!!!!!!! 😡🤬 the reason I ha e it two ⭐️ is because I like the stories a lot but I would’ve given it 5 ⭐️ if this wouldn’t of happened. If I was telling you this in person you would be scared because I would be yelling my head off!!!!! 😡😡😡😡😡😡🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬 If you don’t fix this soon I will tell everybody I know and make sure that with all of my power that nobody I know will download this and I will delete it from my iPad!!!! I am very 😠
Wow...
by kailey ❤️💗 on 2019/11/06 00:25
So I just got this app like Five minutes ago and I always see ads about it and I think it’s cool whatever so I get it and the first story you can’t even go to another story like after like 10 seconds in the story you literally have to wait 15 minute breaks for you can just see the rest of the story which I think that’s ridiculous because I want to get an app that I can watch stories and read stories on without having to pay any money because there’s no point in paying for 4.99 a month just see like stupid things and also $11 just to see pictures and videos like what the heck $11 I can literally take a picture what do you me to do sell it for $11 like this absolutely kill us and this is why I think it. Needs a one star so I do not recommend getting this app because all you have to do is pay you can only watch one story and if you try or consider of watching the other ones you have to wait 10 minutes no offense to the creators of this but this is just my opinion and I do not recommend this.
Why just why
by Nicjennings on 2019/06/13 00:56
I don’t get it why put a 15 minute timer to watch the rest, it’s pointless. The app itself just starts you off with something you may even not want to watch, it doesn’t even let you choose in the beginning. Also the prices to watch the rest and see more without having to wait 15 minutes is a little to much. Overall the app is just a average over advertised hooking game hence the name. If the game is going to advertise to much at least show the rest of the texts. I thought about getting the game so many times because I thought it looked cool to see scary stories s and watch more, but I thought to watch and listen to them all the game itself would cost me but on a add I watched a few minuets before I wrote this said free so I got it. When I got on the game it did exactly what I spoke about earlier. Then told we to wait 15 minuets and I literally said this is so stupid and deleted it. That is why you should never get this app it’s a waist of money if you buy packages and a waist of time to to get the game itself.
Dissapointing.
by Pancake 1234 on 2019/08/27 10:48
Hooked is a decent app to watch videos and stories but the issue is they give you about 5 mins / five lines per video or story before saying wait half an hour! They don’t even let you read other things in the meantime! I’m not going to waste my money on the premium option that’d just be giving the creators more useless money to bask in. It’s unfair that they ask you to pay or wait 33 minutes before reading or continuing anything else. I would recommend Yarn if anything, at least that app lets you read full stories before making you wait. This app is a solid 2/5. Until they give us more access i’m using YARN. Hooked is just a waste of time and space on my phone. It’s dissapointing, all the ads show different than what the app really is. Hope this helps, and no i can’t just pay, im a minor and even my parents agree this app isn’t worth spending money over. I’ll spend money on it when i see better app quality.
I love hooked ❤️
by Kensley Granger on 2017/11/19 23:49
Hooked is like the best thing that has ever happened to me. It teached my brother how to read,it entertained me on my long journeys across the world, and also gave me inspiration to become an author someday! I’m a very smart girl and I always make good grades on my report cards it’s always A+ on every test and when I get home from school im ready to read another story. I love reading but why read regular old books when you could just read and listen on “Hooked”? All I want to say is thank you for creating this experience for me in everyday life having no friends to play with when i get home. It honestly means a lot to me to keep reading on hooked for the rest of my life and and being able when I grow up to read these amazing stories to my kids. Love, Kensley Granger (age 10)
It’s okay
by JibblyCowiios on 2018/03/19 19:54
I have had this on multiple mobile devices as a way to pass time and be able to read some actual good stories. It’s fun and interesting to me without a lot of problems. I mostly like the horror ones, but the other ones are nice too. I’ve noticed that after not using it for a while it often repeats my wait time. For example, I’ll open the app for the first time in a couple of days and immediately the app tells me I have to wait half an hour. I don’t even have to tap it a few times for this to happen which is why I uninstalled the application. Another thing is I don’t like how the stories end abruptly. It often leaves me confused and frustrated that I don’t get the meaning of the story afterwards and that it most likely wouldn’t be continued after that. Hopefully the app can get better and improve on its little bug, but for now it’s three stars from me. :)
READ BEFORE DOWNLOADING
by Cooler_mind on 2019/09/25 00:02
My first time reading its awful! It didn’t allow me to pause it at all and it kept continuing while this thing popped up that said I had to wait 5 minutes before continuing the story and it kept going so I couldn’t see or hear the story and I don’t like this because I downloaded this app thing that I’ll have 15 minutes and pauses and it would let me continue after but it paused and it didn’t make me skip 5 minutes of the story so I don’t recommend if you wanna read a full story not just little bits! Also if someone doesn’t have money like if your a child that doesn’t get money I don’t recommend because it makes you pay for seeing pictures, videos, and continuing the story faster! If a mother doesn’t give their child money/a card then their child would be missing out on a lot of important information in that story and their gonna get confused! Plus if parents want their child to read and understand what their reading GIVE THEM 5/6 DOLLARS!
The worst app I've ever downloaded
by Haille Loomis on 2017/09/18 20:33
IGNORE THE RATING, THAT WAS TO GET THIS REVIEW AT THE TOP. This app is literally stealing your money. It gets ten texts in and tells you that you need to pay to continue. They do this also if you want to see pictures, which are literally stock pics from google or something. Not to mention, I got that "free" trial and got bored, canceled the sub, and deleted the app. This was all within one day. About a month ago I couldn't download apps because of a "purchase" that need to be payed. I had to call apple and be in the phone with them for an hour trying to figure this out. APPARENTLY I was still subscribed to this terribly mediocre app with boring stories. I canceled this. I have no clue why it's stealing my money, even though I unsubscribe AND deleted the app.
Amazing!
by gsuakaavaiaoaosbshaia on 2019/03/02 14:28
When I bought this app I thought it was going to be exactly like “tap”, but it’s not. It’s WAY better. You read one story and you only have to wait 14 minutes to read another. Say what you want, but I think that’s a pretty good wait time compared to other apps like this. You also don’t even have to read the opening story (when you first open the app they give you a story to read) you can just swipe up and close out of it. If you want to read the opening story, they give you a choice between “romantic” and “horror” which I think is great, because the app “tap” doesn’t give you that option, and some people aren’t really into horror. Overall, get this app. It’s great, and it has benefits that others like it don’t.
The wait is too long
by rockin pineapple on 2018/02/10 13:10
I love this app, the stories are really interesting, but the wait is way too long. I mean I read less than one chapter and now I have to wait 30 minutes! It's ridiculous because they want you to spend $15 on their app so that you don't have to wait, but nobody wants to spend their money on some story app because they make you wait a half hour. I think Hooked is a good app, but I'm sick of waiting so long just to read one tiny chapter. Plus subscribing is way to expensive, I mean whose gonna pay $15 on an app so that they don't have to wait and they can see the spooky pictures??!??!? Once again some of the stories are good, but finding those good stories takes forever and the wait is too long. Hooked please get your act together and make subscribing cheaper, the wait time shorter, and make the picture free!
Horrible app, ugh!
by FreddyFazFamily on 2018/11/24 21:17
I wish I could give this a zero star. But sadly I can’t. You made your app horrible. At first, hooked was just AMAZING. You could make stories, read for a long time, and see images for free. But look what you did, you ruined your whole app! That’s why so many people hate it/dislike it! I don’t even know why I downloaded this horrible app again, when it’s straight up BAD. I hate what you did. Do us a favor and bring the writing tool back, out stories back, free images, and everything we want back! It’s not fair. Why do popular ones get to still write, huh? It seems like you don’t care about small users. Users who are a start. Or, it sounds like you make bots make stories! I hate this app! I used to love it! Until, like I said, you completely ruined it! I hate it now. God, it was much more fun with free images, not super expensive stuff, and the writing tool. You just have to ruin everything, don’t you?...thanks for one of the worst apps ever. (In my opinion.) >:(
I Dislike This App But That Is Just My Opinion
by So much Better than minecraft on 2018/01/12 13:11
Sometimes, this app works great. Like when I first downloaded it. Now I have had this app for months and have been reading on that and cliffhanger non stop. It was fine. But now, after months of reading, sometimes this app is the worst. Sometimes it will let me see the entirety of what I’m supposed to read in that time, but lately it has mostly just let me read three text chats. Ad this is not right because I’ll watch the countdown go down from 10 and then I’ll tap three times and it will go from thirty again. Also WHERE IS THE WRITING TOOL? I am a writer and have a story some of you may like to see however I can’t do anything about that because. THERE IS NO WRITING TOOL?!!?!??! Even if it was filtered so only like decent stories go onto the app that would be fine. But all in all when I finished the story in like 3 DAYS because of these glitches, I’m deleting the app.
Do. Not. Get. This. App.
by Idogaming on 2017/11/26 20:26
Title explains everything. You morons really must be desperate for cash, because your apps and other crap must be so terrible that no one wants to buy it. Which then leads to you idiots charging ridiculous amounts of money just to do something like seeing a PICTURE?!?!? ARE YOU KIDDING?!?!?! I’M GLAD I DON’T EVER PLAN ON WORKING FOR YOUR COMPANY!!!!!!! CHARGING HAMILTONS AND LINCOLNS OVER AND OVER JUST TO READ SOME LAME STORIES!!!!!!! Let me tell you quarterwits something right now! If I ever DID work for your hopeless company, at least I would have a FUNCTIONAL and WELL THOUGHT OUT business plan. Like, oh, I don’t know, letting subscribers have the opportunity to write stories on their own, or letting people see the pictures for free, also a ONE minute waiting period instead of THIRTY! Charge $5 for a subscription, and 50 cents a month. Get your crap together, guys. Your app is absolutely unacceptable. Take the time to actually READ and TAKE TO HEART what I have just said to you, because if you don’t, it’s your company’s funeral.
Horrible
by JJCoogii🔥 on 2019/04/24 03:15
Let’s start off by saying that as soon as you start up the app, it asks you which story would you like romantic or horror. I picked horror and so they played a video which had nothing on there. I clicked it and it said I had to wait 15 mins and it pulled up he subscription stuff. WHO WANTS TO PAY JUST TO READ STORIES!?So I was really disappointed and mad because of this. Daily I see the ads from HOOKED and it says "Trevor and The Virgin". So I was FINALLY convinced to download it so I could start reading. But I didn’t know it would not automatically take you to all of the options. Can the HOOKED developers please come out with a update that where you do not have to wait 15 mins. You don’t have to pay just to see images and videos. And just generally let you just read the stories.. Don’t get me wrong, the stories that HOOKED shows as ads are REALLY entertaining and gets ME hooked to it. That’s why it was so convincing. But when I downloaded it I was EXTREMELY disappointed.

Disappointed
by Marjie808 on 2019/11/13 06:27
I originally jumped on board with this app because I was fascinated by the ad that I saw about the “art collector” only to find out that the 7 min ad I saw was the whole episode on this app. On top of that there is no continuation to this 7 min video. Extremely unsatisfying
Rip off
by budnehje on 2019/11/13 03:12
This app is literally the biggest rip off I mean it is ported as a free app but then literally 15 seconds in it stops my story and tells me I have to wait 5 minutes before I can watch or I can speed up the wait time. Then it’s asking me to spend money to do that 🙄 absolutely ridiculous
Confusion
by ~_KittyxX on 2019/11/13 01:21
I recently downloaded the app and was a bit confused as the “texting” story that came up was a video. The app wouldn’t let me exit out so I just watched the video and exited at the end. When I did I saw a lot of other videos and there were some texting stories like the ones advertised. I was originally annoyed but afterwards satisfied. There were the texting stories I wanted and the one video I did watch ended up being pretty good. I recommend giving the app a try. The one problem I noticed was that you have to wait about 5 mins to continue the story and you can speed it up if you pay. Honestly it’s better than the apps that only let you read the beginning of one story.
Why I think this
by riverdale301 on 2019/11/13 00:17
I think that when it is typing it should show the picture when there is one I also think it should let us pick the story we want to hear another thing is that it should have scary and romantic but also mystery and if it had that in it I think this app would have more people using it
WOAH
by Jjou011 on 2019/11/12 20:39
Ok so when I first came on this app mind u I was watching DISNEY NOW with my little cousin witch was 3 and this romantic this came on with this girl making out with boys and my cousin just said “get it get it get it!” And that was just so weird because he is not into romantic stuff so just to inappropriate but has good story’s for older people

I’m hooked !!!! Soooo good
No
by Dkdkiekdf on 2019/11/12 17:53
Once you download it it lets you watch like 5 seconds of a story before making you wait for 5 minutes unless you buy the premium.
Why pay
by Jordana0922 on 2019/11/12 07:59
I’m sure it is a great app if you pay for it, but it’s not worth posting for
Just stop
by seanyboy1191 on 2019/11/12 03:09
Why is it every two minutes that the game stops you have to have a 5 minute break and you don’t even get to choose the video you have to pick scary or romance or something then if you don’t want to watch a 5 minute video you need to pay a crazy 15$. Scription fee and what’s is the point by then so just let us choose are videos and don’t have a crazy fee!!!!!!!!!
Lower the times on the pauses
by Sheanry on 2019/11/11 22:26
It’s a cool concept and it’s fun to read but those pauses in between are absolutely horrible. You’ll be watching a video and then suddenly it just pops up and if you don’t pay for premium you have to sit through those pauses forever it’s annoying as hell and I really recommend lowering the time of the pauses. Someone like me who is too young and has all the money I spend monitored by my parents so I can’t just use my own money to buy premium so this is a big problem for me.
Clicked
by alanyh1o on 2019/11/11 20:28
I think this app is amazing and some leave on cliffhanger and I love that
Why
by M.totheM. on 2019/11/11 18:18
I like the app and all but the need to make me wait is just annoying and needing to pay money. Selfish I say, I say hooked just wants money which is likely true
Not working
by golden freddy1234 on 2019/11/11 03:42
It only would let me see two stuff dies and would not exit them
I used it for 15 seconds and I’m already mad
by 🤩😎🤓🧐😛😋 on 2019/11/11 03:10
I used the app for literally 15 seconds before it told me I’d have to pay or else I’d have to wait 15 minutes. That’s annoying. I could read a book or watch a movie for free, I don’t have to use this app. That being said, I probably won’t.
STOP SHOWING UP ON MY YOUTUBE ADS
by XXXTENTACION!! ❤️ on 2019/11/11 00:23
YOUR SHOW IS ANNOYING SO COMMIT NECK ROPE HOOKED
No

No. Just no. 👎🏼
THEYRE SO MONEY HUNGRY
by david found nothng on 2019/11/10 17:17
This this app doesn’t even allow you to choose what want. It gives you only one video/story to view. Then you’ll have to pay for more. Also, you can’t even skip the video or book. You also have to pay to skip too. I deleted the app. It’s pathetic how money hungry they are. It’s almost like they don’t want people to use the app.
Not worth it.
by Blackwidow927 on 2019/11/10 15:54
I literally just downloaded the app. It made me choose horror or romance. I keep seeing all these ads for Trevor and the virgin and figured why not. It’s worth a shot. Literally three seconds into the video it paused and said I had to wait 5 minutes. I legitimately hadn’t gotten to the fourth second and it already was trying to force me to buy a 5 dollar fee or try it for 7 days but it would try to lock me into an automatic renewal. Biggest rip off ever. I’ll stick to YouTube and fan fiction.
Wait 15 minutes
by Layyyy___ on 2019/11/10 14:43
I have already read Trevor and the virgin before when I downloaded the app before. I deleted the app don’t remember why but now you have to watch the whole 15 minutes video and then get 4 minute breaks in between that a lot. App was a lot better before 🤷🏾‍♀️

Alright
by Maddieloveyy on 2019/11/09 22:37
I hate the fact that we have to wait 4 minutes or to speed it up buy it-
It would stop every 5 minutes
by Mell14982 on 2019/11/09 22:27
It would push you into getting its premium thing. It was really annoying and I really wanted to watch something scary but I couldn’t because it would stop every 7 minutes to make you wait unless you pay.
Annoying
by Jppt007 on 2019/11/09 14:07
I have never written a review for an app because honestly who cares that much. But THIS is the one that pushed me there. After seeing countless adds on every social media platform you can think of, I finally downloaded Hooked to specifically watch Trevor and the virgin. When I opened the app it made me immediately choose between horror and romance. Seeing as how I only downloaded the app for Trevor and the virgin I obviously chose romance. I was pleasantly surprised when Trevor and the virgin immediately started playing. I assumed it was a trailer so you could preview the headlining story on the app before you browsed because that would be smart right? That’s what a normal app would do? But no, after a few seconds, and I mean literally a few seconds, like maybe six.... a notification pops up and muted the video while it plays in the background. The notification says I can sit here for five minutes and look at the countdown and wait to, I assume, actually ENTER THE APP or I can pay for a subscription and skip ahead. Honestly I’m very disappointed and bewildered. An app with so much great advertisement, I’m sure many people have downloaded it but it makes me wonder if it was before they added this ridiculous “pay us or have a terrible experience” intro. I really hope for the apps sake that there’s more to it than continuously begging for money, like I don’t know, giving us the opportunity to actually read or watch stories. Which is the whole point of the app??? Honestly I immediately realized the app is nothing but a money pit. Sad to see such a good idea ruined due to the creators greed. I even tried to read other reviews to see if it was worth it after waiting for the five ridiculous minutes. But all the recent reviews said the same thing. Hope they change this for theirs and our sake.
Really whyyy
by Mfrank1 on 2019/11/09 14:06
When I try a new story the audio from the last story plays which is dumb and you haft to buy something so you don’t haft to wait like five min if you don’t it does it a bunch of times and you haft to sit and wait 5 min
Video
by Skyleigh Kitty Meow on 2019/11/09 08:23
I got to watch a whole 15 seconds of the video and then the audio shut off and it played behind a wait timer pop up that you can’t get rid of. 🙄🙄🙄
Horrible app
by NotPhillipLindsay on 2019/11/09 07:56
This app scammed me $60. Do NOT fall for their bs. Once you download, they automatically start a subscription for 10 dollars EVERY WEEK. Don’t fall for it!!
Welppppp...nevermind!
by keeyco5 on 2019/11/09 06:52
Well i just downloaded this for the first time...and read the reviews on it--as i normally do......needless to say based on the reviews, i will be deleting it before really even getting in to it! Thank Goodness for the "review" option, they saved me from wasting my time! 💪😐
Forcing you to buy from them?
by someone mad about this app on 2019/11/09 05:06
I was only a few seconds into the story and it made me wait five minutes without audio and a giant thing on my screen or buy something from them, overall annoying and they are just trying to get you to buy their “perks” I saw a add about it on YouTube so I downloaded it and I got a add within a minute. Disappointed
Video
by sacvni on 2019/11/09 04:08
I would give you more stars but there are not a lot of videos to entertain people like me so if you want to fix it make more videos Thank you
Videos
by BrooklynClarklol on 2019/11/09 00:00
Why can’t the videos be like free but they pause for 4mins and it gets on my nerves and I don’t like it and you have to pay to get it to not pause and I’m not old enough to pay so why can’t it be free I don’t like that you have to wait 4 minutes on the videos I really want to watch them but then it just stops and I hate it so I rate 1 star
HORRIBLE
by kiara lolz on 2019/11/08 00:16
actors are horrible, this app is BEGGING for you to get their premium stuff, which u gotta buy with real money, then when u first download the app this vid of 15 min comes up and you cant go watch other stories, and when u double click to go ahead, their premium thing comes up.. STOP BEGGING
Free
by unorginiz on 2019/11/07 21:07
This app is a scam why have it free but it makes you have to pay because unorganized🙄
Would Love it...if I had more patience
by sanj.app13 on 2019/11/07 04:42
I don’t understand why there are 5 minute breaks. Once I get to enjoying a story I would rather have quick 30 sec ads in between then random 5 minute breaks. It really makes me avoid the app.
I love this game
by parrrrrrrrrrrerrrrrrrrrrrrrrrk on 2019/11/07 04:41
I really love this app because it is like your actually texting so you come to check out the app
Don’t even bother
by Fryeeee on 2019/11/07 03:19
Dumbest app ever. So many glitches I couldn’t even watch a video. It’s just out to annoy you so much that you sign up and give them money for it. No thanks.
One thing
by nighttimenurus on 2019/11/07 01:49
I absolutely hate the fact that you have to get premium or suffer the long five minute wait when it gets to the good parts! Dislike!!😑😒
Never again
by SSEm67 on 2019/11/06 16:01
Not worth it
Great App. Not for me.
by palatino1013 on 2019/11/06 04:32
I watched Trevor and the Virign for free, using the 7-day trial. Once I decided I don’t want to read any more stories, I went to the help section of the app and read detailed description on how to cancel my subscription. I successfully avoid paying for anything, after I watched the only video I wanted to watch. That’s why I’m leaving a 5 star, but the content of the app only deserves probably 3 stars, if that’s what you’re after.
Wow...
by kailey ❤️💗 on 2019/11/06 00:25
So I just got this app like Five minutes ago and I always see ads about it and I think it’s cool whatever so I get it and the first story you can’t even go to another story like after like 10 seconds in the story you literally have to wait 15 minute breaks for you can just see the rest of the story which I think that’s ridiculous because I want to get an app that I can watch stories and read stories on without having to pay any money because there’s no point in paying for 4.99 a month just see like stupid things and also $11 just to see pictures and videos like what the heck $11 I can literally take a picture what do you me to do sell it for $11 like this absolutely kill us and this is why I think it. Needs a one star so I do not recommend getting this app because all you have to do is pay you can only watch one story and if you try or consider of watching the other ones you have to wait 10 minutes no offense to the creators of this but this is just my opinion and I do not recommend this.
good if u have good games
by 543best123 on 2019/11/05 21:42
the 5 minute wait kinda is disturbing, but not that bad if you have addicting games to pass the time, so, yeah. Other then that it’s the best.
Why?
by mackattack341 on 2019/11/05 13:06
This app is pretty great but I didn’t even have a chance to watch my first story when it just said to wait 5 minutes for no reason. I would like it if it had no interruptions like that but obviously I have to pay for that don’t I? It seems like you might as well have to pay for the whole app.
Update your pain
by datalhxickc on 2019/11/05 02:42
how is a app that i full of s... they make you pay and more that is not. necessary so if they can fix it i will give them a better rating. it is full of s...
15 minute break
by Aerielaeiel on 2019/11/04 18:21
I hate having to stop watching movies/stores because of the ads I downloaded because I actually want to watch or read
15 minutes 😒
by cupid1022❤️❤️ on 2019/11/04 11:43
4 minutes why hooked needs to be able to see the pictures
Hooked!!
by mmonacori on 2019/11/04 00:32
I love Hooked!! I’ve always been one for a good scary campfire story, or a murder mystery and Hooked is really great at giving me those. I highly recommend it if you are also one to like murder mysteries or a romance story. They have both so it’s not just murder mysteries. I have it a 5 star rating and I love it so much!!
Why the wait?!?
by Hizono on 2019/11/03 21:19
I opened the app and I chose to read scary genre and it instantly put up a video and I didn’t want to spend 21 minutes watching the video but I couldn’t get out of the video. All I want is to have the freedom To choose my own story.....
About The Trial
by Ktoomommy on 2019/11/03 21:10
Overall this app is great. But I wish you didn’t need the trial to read and watch things. I originally downloaded the app to watch Trevor and The Virgin, but I can’t t because of the trial. I really do think the 7 day trial is nice, but no trial or paying would be better.
Love it but only one issue
by lk6421 on 2019/11/03 18:55
I’ve had this game for a day and i’m hooked (pun intended). So far everything is super interesting and I can’t put my phone down. The only thing i have is the random five minute breaks that you hate to take if you don’t have a subscription. I guess there has to be something if you don’t pay, but it doesn’t bother me that much, i just switch over to a different app and play games till it’s over. It would also be nice if subtitles were an option for the videos, because most of the time i prefer to have my volume low and read the text. Overall, would definitely recommend this app, just be aware you’ll have to take some breaks!
The reason why I put one ☆....
by Alexis ☆ on 2019/11/03 17:08
The reason is because they won’t let you see the picture unless your premium but I like the old update better because you only watch a video to see the photo or video.
I dislike this app
by bshaywbsnsnaksmskka on 2019/11/03 13:34
This app is annoying with the timer and etc. you think i’m paying money to just watch some short clips and stuff absolutely not i really don’t like this app, these days you have to pay for everything i hate it deleting this app asap.1 star btw;)
SAD
by Fredmanfree on 2019/11/03 13:20
This app is horrible for the simple reasons that - first off it plays whatever story it wants. - second it tries to indirectly FORCE you to buy the premium for 4.99!!! -and if that wasn’t enough, it also gives you a 5 minutes wait about 1 minute into the first story!!!!! WHEN IT TO SPEED UP THE WAIT I PRESSED IT AND GUESS WHAT? IT SENT ME TO THE BUY PREMIUM PAGE !! What a surprise!!!!!!
Best game
by ashyyy_washyyyy on 2019/11/03 03:32
I love this game the only thing o hate is the 5 minute wait but other than that I love it!!!!!!! ♥️
HORRIBLE APP
by Andrea199436 on 2019/11/03 01:35
I’m so mad at this app , I mean the stories are good but after 2 minutes you have to wait 15 MINUTES and if you don’t want to it makes you pay a membership AND THAT IS SO FREAKING ANNOYING I DONT LIKE THOSE MEMBERSHIP , ALSO THIS APP APPEARS ME IN EVERY SINGLE ANNOUNCE
I hate this app

Waiting time
by Kyle.512 on 2019/11/02 20:19
There is 5-15 minute waiting time witch Is way to have to wait
every thing is unnecessary
by Monse._._ on 2019/11/02 20:16
literally you need to pay like what $5 a month just to pick whatever story or show to watch.. REALLY also there’s like pauses EVERY 10 SECONDS OF THE SHOWS. and you have to pay to get them off WOW i hate this app fix it now
Love it but I wish
by phone dragens on 2019/11/02 18:44
I love this app,I just wish I new how rite my own story if that is even possible.I like to iteration people as much as I could so please mack that possible if you can, and leave it some wear any one can see it if they won’t to write a story.
Don’t get this app!!
by dalia smith on 2019/11/02 17:52
I downloaded this app 30 seconds ago, opened it, it asked me if I wanted a scary or romantic story, I picked romantic and I was 10 SECONDS IN WHEN A FREAKING WAIT 5 MINUTES THING CAME UP!!!?!?!? like how am i supposed to enjoy this app if I get a wait right away?? And the movie was still playing when I had to wait 5 minutes. It’s ridiculous, what’s the point of that? So I immediately deleted the app. What a waste of time. All they want is for you to go premium so you can pay $8 a month. They want your money. Don’t get this app unless you want to waste your money.

It take to long
by itzzz_lor3na on 2019/11/02 06:42
Every 5 mins a timer comes up in middle of the video. Like I saw this app in adds and it looked like a good app but when I started watching it sucked cause of the timer. 😡
Gran idea pero...
by Sabrocito17 on 2019/11/02 06:13
La idea de llevar una historia como una simple conversación hace adentrarte y tomar otra perspectiva sobre las historias... es genial, el único pero que encuentro es el pago por semana, es caro, intentaré adaptarme con esperar los 5:00 min de espera y los bloqueos de imágenes.
Terrible
by ZUEZULTRA on 2019/11/02 05:05
Honestly, the videos that are shown are just plain awful. The story itself, the acting, and everything overall is just atrocious. This app was way better before these “videos” came. Before the videos, there was actually some decent stories that was written, not videos, just text stories that had a decent plot. I just wish that those text stories would come back, and not just these basic stories, with boring characters that have no texture or depth into them. I recommend not buying the premium if you plan on using this. It’s highly recommended to avoid wasting your money at all cost
Waiting time
by bbggchbc on 2019/11/02 03:59
There shouldn’t be waiting time every two minutes because you don’t pay 5 dollars a week like that’s ridiculous
It’s ok but...
by nugget the amazing on 2019/11/02 02:41
Ok, I know giving it a 3 star is some wut harsh but it is not that bad. I don’t know if this happens to anyone else but I get bored of a story easily, and me having to wait is not a problem. But I can’t get to another story like I have to go out of the app and refresh it to go to another story. I just got it so I’m not so sure how to work it. And I can’t do anything on it cuz it won’t let me. I don’t know if it os happening to other people but it’s happening to me and it’s very annoying. But it happens all the time and I dont know how to stop it or how to go to another story. Other than that it’s a great app. - nugget
You have to buy the subscription!😡
by 1234567897539274792 on 2019/11/02 02:23
really wanted to watch the videos but 15 seconds later a pop up appeared and I had to wait 5 minutes only to be able to watch fifteen seconds more! It’s dumb. I’m not going to waste my money by buying the subscription I just genuinely thought that it would be a good or at least half-decent app.
Hooked review

It’s so stupid that you have pay to get the full story and it’s just a waste of time.
DONT DOWNLOAD
by Johnny-D on 2019/11/01 18:43
This game would not allow me to see the pics unless I paid. This game also made me wait 5 minutes before reading the rest of the story. This game is stupid and you should not get it. 😡
Hooked

Don’t even bother
by Rainy Thursday on the avenue on 2019/11/01 03:46
Literally 30 seconds into a video for the first story I started after downloading the app, a box popped up saying to wait 5 minutes until resuming. Not worth it at all 🙄. Now I remember why I deleted it before.
Where is she

Extreme stupidity and ad baiting
by WerewolfWill712 on 2019/10/31 22:58
All this app contains is tantalizing videos that intentionally never resolve so you will keep watching ads money grubbing and lazy. And now Apple is promoting them. Makes me want to buy a android... (And androids are sh*t)
To the maker of the app

‼️I HATE THIS APP‼️
by 🌻🌸Nelle🌸🌻 on 2019/10/31 15:32
I had seen hooked all over he place and so I decided I should download because it looked interesting. So in I downloaded it and then it asked me if I wanted to read a scary or romantic story I picked romantic and right in the beginning of the video something popped up and it said 4 MINUTES! And the video just kept going so I missed some stuff! And if this is your way of trying to make money it’s a terrible method you should at least just interrupt the story with like one of those game ads other than that don’t just interrupt the video/story with a 4 minute timer.😕
Completely terrible app

It’s ok...but really bad.
by Roger Fedral on 2019/10/30 23:04
If your fine spending $5 a week...it’s fine. BUT, if your not...every 30 seconds you have to wait 5:00 for a timer. And when that runs out, your aloud to.
Your hooked? More like your high!
by theblakjew on 2019/10/30 17:28
Are used to read the version of hooked that was text messages for scary stories and I must admit it was very entertaining and chilling so I recently got a new device and decided I will try out the new version of hooked only to get three seconds into the actual app am I prompted to join a subscription and then at the end of the trial (Seven days later) you have to pay five bucks. And then every week you would have to pay five more dollars that’s a total of $20 a month are you guys HIGH!!?? no one in their right mind will pay Netflix $20 a month so what do you think you’re offering me!
Bad review
by read tis on 2019/10/30 15:09
Hooked is a scam it only wants you to pay and I was watch Trevor and the Virgin and after like 2 minutes it stopped and wanted me to pay and I did pay and it still didn’t work
Exepcitional
by i didnt even use the app on 2019/10/29 21:54
Trevor and the virgin was AMAZING and I started watching others and it became a habit
Awful and annoying...actually the worst!!
by mrswillhite on 2019/10/29 17:57
You download the “free” app and it immediately asks to to buy the full version or do the 7 day trial that automatically renews. When you get around that, it opens a video, which you don’t get to choose (I’m assuming you only get to choose your video in the paid version). Then, a couple minutes in, a timer pops up that makes you wait 5 minutes before you can continue watching the video and under the time it says that you can continue watching if you by the full version...this part is not an ad...it’s literally a black screen with a timer...taunting you to try and con you into paying 15 dollars for a month of the full one. I deleted the app simply because I don’t like apps that try to manipulate people into paying for the full version and you’re not Netflix ...I’m Not paying 15 dollars for the full version, especially when the free version sucked so bad!
Unfair
by 😇💙😇💚 on 2019/10/29 15:25
Basically, if you really want to see a full story you HAVE to subscribe and pay the $5 a month. Stories a great, but some of us are poor and don’t want to spend $60 a year on unlimited access to STORIES.
Not so free trial?
by kprice8888 on 2019/10/29 07:33
Downloaded to watch TaTV/2, and it said “free, 1 week trial and $4.99/week after. I was immediately charged the $4.99 and had ZERO free trial time. Aside from that, TaTV/2 were good.
Doesn’t work
by Skjsidbdisnf on 2019/10/29 06:03
I downloaded it and it just took me straight to an episode I can’t exit out so I can’t look at anything else and it keeps on asking me to pay for a subscription.
Horrible

It is great...unless you don’t have premium then it is awful
Pay to play
by emilia hebert on 2019/10/29 01:14
Horrible set up you have to be premium or ever minute of watching or reading you have to have a five minute break. There should be options for free and not have to wait like that it makes it so not worth the effort
So freakin good evening

scam
by Bigtimehotshot on 2019/10/28 23:57
would be a cool app if it didn’t require you to get the upgrade right after downloading it
Stupidly unrealistic
by Love_pink001 on 2019/10/28 23:55
It’s like if a 13 year old boy tried to write a PG-13 high school musical And the other stories aren’t scary at all. I wrote better stories in English 1
Hooked
by babbypapa on 2019/10/28 22:43
This app is actually telling a story I can understand is lovely
Misleading!!!
by perttyQb on 2019/10/28 21:51
How can you charge me without the app showing a price I will not continue with this.
Don’t download
by Apple User ✅ on 2019/10/28 21:25
It got too many ads plus it wants you to pay 5 dollars a week for a 15 minute episode
Money Hungry
by reviewer760 on 2019/10/28 17:16
what a waste of time to even download it
Do not buy this app unless you are willing to pay for it!
by Stardust Sparkle453 on 2019/10/28 16:10
Right off the back I was asked to buy a 7 day free trial, then pay once a month for the stories. That’s not worth it in my opinion. If you are willing to pay for it then go for it. No guarantees it’s going to be good quality stories. Good luck. Hoped this helped.
Ehh
by P/E forever👌🏻😘😘 on 2019/10/28 14:25
I was really exited to get the app but absoluly hate having to watch the story at the beginning
Amazing but room for improvements
by Awesomechink420 on 2019/07/05 09:14
Hooked is a great and my favorite app for reading overall. The stories always keep me on my toes and unlike most other horror/romance/other genres reading apps, you can read the stories even if you don’t subscribe. But, the only reason why I gave his app a four star rating is because there is a fifteen minute pause in the middle of any story, audio, or video if you don’t pay for the full access. I would love to pay for full access, but the problem is that my parents won’t allow me to pay the money. Many of my friends who also have hooked have the same problem. If you (the person who’s reading this review) are an adult, you don’t have to worry about this, but if you are a teen or a child, it’s likely that you have parents who control your payments. (Unless your an arrogant, spoiled brat) On the other hand, it makes sense that if you don’t subscribe, you shouldn’t get all that you get if you do get full access, but I hope that the developers can shorten the pause by some time. Overall, hooked is still an amazing app for reading. It doesn’t matter if apps have flaws because there isn’t one that doesn’t.
Nope.
by ANNOYED X A BILLION on 2019/03/22 00:01
Okay, I just wanna start out by saying this app was in my ads almost daily. I thought about downloading it multiple times, but figured I wouldn't have much time to read anyway. Finally, I was convinced & decided i'd try it. I loved it at first, and by "at first", i mean the first 3 minutes. Then, out of no where, the app crashed. I waited a minute & got back on, & was getting into the story(which btw, i think the story was very entertaining & well written), then it crashed again. After 3 more times of that I was done with it. Also, I don't like how you have to wait 15 minutes randomly throughout. What is the point of that? I read for 2 minutes & have to stop in the middle of it for a 15 minute intermission? I'm suppose to stop in the middle of reading to be told that I can buy a 15 dollar subscription if I don't wanna wait 15 minutes every 2 minutes to continue my story? No thanks! Do you even know how long it took me to get to the 15 minute intermission mark without the app crashing a million times!? I get the app has to make money. Which is why not seeing the images dosen't bother me or other little things like that. I mean you could change it to where you have to be a member to write stories, see images, choose your own stories, things like that. Honestly, the stories are so good, people might actually not mind paying! But to stop the story every 2 minutes seems selfish & frankly, annoying. Theres plenty more reading apps, I can just download one of those.
Good but annoying
by MiniWinner7 on 2018/05/24 13:21
This app is one of my favorite apps on my phone. I’ve read many stories on it and so far all of them have been super interesting. I (personally) like the horror ones. But their are a few things that I think they should change about this app. 1st of all I think it’s stupid that you have to wait 15 Minutes during a story. And sometime the 15 min thingy will pop up at random parts in the story and it’s really annoying. I think they should change this so that it’s only like 5 min and it doesn’t pop up in the middle of the stories. 2nd of all to see any pictures or to skip the 15 min you have to get “Hooked Unlimited” which cost $15 for a month. I still think they should have this but not for EVERY picture because usually the pictures are there to move the story along but when you can’t see them you have no idea what’s happening. Other then these things I think the app it pretty good and has great stories.
15 Minutes
by AnimalLover12🐉🐈🐆 on 2019/05/11 07:50
I had at first deleted the app about 2-3 years ago since it was boring and I didn’t like how you had to pay to see the pictures. No biggie. I then repeatedly see a bunch of ads specifically about “Trevor and the Virgin” and all the ones about the whole “don’t let mom in” and “grab the mysterious shotgun that you never knew about”. I got curious and decided, “hey. Some of the stories look cool.” So I downloaded it and it asks me if I want to choose between TWO genres of stories: horror or romance. Keep in mind it’s almost 4 am and I really don’t want to be reading horror right now and I’m not in the mood for romance so I HAVE to choose one of them. I decide romance and I was getting ready to pick my story that I was going to read. I get in he app and it instantly puts me in some video. I was watching Trevor and the Virgin. Not the best choice but whatever. Literally 8 seconds in it says “You can either wait 15 minutes or pay $7-8 a month with a thirty day free trial.” I’m not waiting FIFTEEN MINUTES to watch a FIFTEEN MINUTE VIDEO. I don’t see the point in that. I really think that you should be allowed to pick what you want to read and have more options for the different types of genres. Sure, horror and romance probably are the most popular but not EVERYONE likes it. I also think that the whole fifteen minute wait time or pay up is absurd.
This is just really inappropriate
by cloudy the sky on 2019/10/26 23:07
Ok so when I got 🅗🅞🅞🅚🅔🅓 I saw this it say romantic and scary and I thought why would people like romantic ??? Like what and I say anyways I saw a ad and it’s about hooked and I saw this girl and boy and I thought it was scary but it was so inappropriate there where kiss and girl make ing out with hot boys and some where kissing in the neck and girls where takeing off their Close and I did not looked at it and the was done then my mom and sister come and they saw that what are you watching and I saw nothing because I did not want my mom and dad found a really inappropriate things then I stared playing it and I saw the movie that was the ad then I scroll down and I saw more inappropriate THINGS so I shut my phone of and I went to bed because I was sooooooo scared of the app I’m little sister saw that I was scared and I said WHAT and she went away and I keep getting bad grades i thought it was the app so I went back on it and I saw so many ROMANTIC STUFF and I thought I put on scary mode but it seems it’s broken so I looked at the. Battery and it was 5 percentage I charged it but it was not charging so I did it harder and I accidentally put on a inappropriate show/movie so it did not let me stopped it so I called mom and dad and they saw really sexy things so mom and dad throw my Computer and I was so scared so that was my broken HOOKED story
Why the 15 minute break?
by iiToXxiCii on 2019/05/18 13:31
I have several complaints about this app. First of all, you only get to view the story for like 2 minutes. After around two minutes, you have to wait FIFTEEN to be able to read again. Also, to skip the break, you have to purchase a membership. I am NOT such a big fan of that. Please either decrease the duration of the break or just get rid of it as a whole. Secondly, you have to get the full version to view the pictures, and that's around $11. Seriously, $11 just to view pictures? I WILL NOT accept that. Decrease the price of the full version, please, and allow everyone to see the pictures without purchasing the full version. Third and foremost, the text messages appear too slowly. This means that instead of viewing like 2 minutes of texts, I'm looking at around 1:40. Please increase the pace at which the text messages appear. Short summary: I have several complaints. First of all, you only get to view the story for 2 minutes, then it's a 15 minute break. To skip the break, you have to purchase a membership. Secondly, you have to purchase the full version to view pictures, and the full version is around $11, which I WILL NOT accept. Third, the messages appear too slowly, decreasing the amount of messages that I could potentially view.
Slow and you cant see the pictures TL,DR at the end
by Abz Wolf on 2019/03/18 13:53
Ok so at first I downloaded this app so me and my friend could read scary stories at first it was cool but one thing I noticed is it didn't let me pick the story so that was a bit annoying because I saw A ad for the app and the story they were telling was the one I wanted to read and secondly it's very slow the text messages take forever to show up on the screen I would like for that to be fixed 3rd of all you have to buy the full version to see the pictures so me and my friend just made up the pictures because we are odd people lol 😂 but seriously the full version was like 11$ and I'm not paying that much for an app that I'm leaving a good amount of complaints on also in the middle of the story it said we had to wait 14 minutes to continue reading why tho that's so stupid lastly the stories take forever to get to the point like I like some suspense but seriously 😒 me and my friend didn't even find out what was so dangerous about brad before it stopped I'm sorry I wouldn't recommend this app it's slow and over all not that great TL,DR the app is slow you can't see the pictures too much suspense and it stopped in the middle of the story and said we had to wait 14 minutes also didn't let me pick the story do not recommend
Umm..
by SOMEWHERE FROM SOMETHIG1241539 on 2018/06/11 04:17
I wanna start this by saying the best part about this app was the writing tool. It was wayyyy better before you had to delete it. You could see a part of people’s minds and explore way further, and actually dive into the pit of reading. But of course like every good app, someone found a way to ruin some of the fun. If it was brought back I would be extreeemely happy and rate this app five stars DEFINITELY. But sadly, if you don’t listen to the reviews and bring back the writing tool that EVERYONE enjoys, I’m uninstalling the app. Face it, everyone loved writing stories and there were really good player made stories out there. Everyone loves the write a story feature and everyone would rate five stars more likely if the writing tool was brought back. Don’t let my couple minutes of my life be wasted on this comment and actually make a change about something that EVERYONE misses. You would get way better reviews and I will recommend it to all of my friends, because most of them deleted it because they wrote stories. We had a group circle where each of us would write a story of our own and show t to the others. You would be doing EVERYONE a favor by adding the writing tool back. We all miss it. Thanks for reading this and thank you for your time.
I understand why they call it hooked!
by emily00sunshine on 2018/08/11 11:36
These stories keeps you so entertained it’s unbelievable. I always find myself going to this app to read the next story. I also really like that some are a couple of “chapters” so it draws you in more to see what is going to happen next. There has not been one story yet that I haven’t smiled, chuckled or was shocked while reading these on my phone. I do not understand why people gave a 1 or 2 star review. Reviews are for how entertaining or good an app is, not to bash them for having to wait 15 mins to keep reading on. Honestly 15 mins isn’t that long, and if you really don’t want to wait, then pay for the subscription. Yes it’s $15 a month but come on people, this IS a business and they need to make money somehow so they can keep growing. I personally don’t want to pay for the subscription either so I just wait the 15 mins, it’s really not that bad. Honestly. I secretly like it because it forces me to put down my phone because I’m so hooked to this app! Thanks guys!
I WANT CREATE YOUR OWN STORYS BACK
by Skippitdydoda on 2018/06/23 15:13
I just recently downloaded this app, and I was looking forward to making my own chat stories. I was already brainstorming ideas (I know, I’m a nerd)! But when I discovered there was no option for that, I went here, to the App Store, to investigate. I read some reviews, and I noticed that some people were complaining about the lack of making your own stories, and that they wished that option was back. Well, me to! I really wanted to have the freedom of writing my own thing for people to read and enjoy. I am pretty sure (from reading the reviews) that other people want the freedom as well. Bringing back the make your own story option would make my Hooked experience much more happy. I am only able to give three stars for no freedom of making chat stories, and the fact that I am a little salty about this change of what I thought would be a more creative and free app game (I digress, I digress). If the Hooked team decides to bring back the make your own chat story option back, I would be much more happy and delighted. Thank you!
Great idea, but...
by LanieSpurrell on 2019/03/30 13:21
Ok, ill admit I was hooked when the ad came up in my favorite game, Run Race 3D. But I was not hooked AT ALL this time. And yes, it was a great idea to make an app like this, but this is ridiculous! I was in the middle of my first video, and I only got to watch 15 seconds of it and then a big pop-up appears saying I have to wait 14 minutes along with 53 seconds. So about 15 minutes. If I’m going to have to wait 15 minutes to watch 15 seconds of a video, I’m just going to buy my own romance and horror books and movies. I might as well delete the app. I will keep the app for now, but if you don’t do something about this stupid “wait 15 minutes for 15 seconds” thing. Because this is ridiculous. Either get rid of the time thing, or make the books and videos even with the time range. All I wanted was a few chills down my spine, but I guess that isn’t going to happen. I do not recommend this to any of my friends and family, including you. I feel guilty saying this about such an amazing idea, but it’s just the truth. I look forward to your response and latest update. Everybody who agrees, dump hooked and get the app READIT. Sincerely, LMS
Just got and already have problems
by Kaetlyn613 on 2019/10/21 22:35
I literally just downloaded the app and started playing a video. First off you have two choice, scary or romantic. I chose romantic because I wanted to see what there was. You don’t even get a choice of the story you watch and you can’t change it to scary after it’s already started. Then randomly not even 15 seconds into the video another “free 7 day trial and after that it’s $4.99 a month” ad shows up. It’s not even a minute in only 12 seconds and the video keeps playing while you sit through the wait time which I wouldn’t mind but come on 12 second in that’s a little much at least make it like a minute and give us the options of what story we want like I really don’t want to watch “Trevor and the Virgin” like not my thing. Then it won’t even let me play the video after the wait time and the “free trial” ad keeps popping up. I was really excited about this app but there is no choices and you can’t change your decision not everyone wants to see the same genre everytime like I like romance but now I’m in the mood to read/watch something scary and there is no way to change it.
Broken app
by WriterTool on 2017/10/16 12:28
I downloaded Hooked a while back because I loved to write stories and wanted to try text stories. I absolutely ADORED this app and the wonderful story-writer it had, but lately Hooked has been giving me so many frustrating problems that I can’t WAIT to be rid of it. They claim ‘follow the steps in the app’ for exporting stories; I have searched EVERYWHERE in this app for a story exporting tool (so I can switch my stories over to Tap), low and behold, I have not found it. There are even some stories that I MYSELF have written that I cannot even access because the app crashes EVERY SINGLE TIME I TRY. So hurray, unless this is yet another bug they need to fix, I’m gonna lose the work I put into my stories because this darn thing can’t even run properly. Not to mention beforehand when actually writing the stories, there were so many occasions of the writing-tool bugging out and not letting me delete duplicated chapters or rearrange character names and colors. This was a fun app but now it’s just broken. My advice? Forget about Hooked and switch to Tap. They at least program it COMPETENTLY.
Why
by K.N.ICKY on 2018/05/29 00:05
I don’t really understand the logic behind this decision. Why on earth would you make an option where readers can create their own stories, and then delete it afterwards? What was the point of giving users that opportunity if you were just going to take it away? I know it might seem like I’m overreacting, but as an aspiring writer, I think I have every right to be as upset as I am. I’m sure there are thousands of users who agree. Either give users the option to write or don’t. But I don’t really find it fair to take away such a huge feature. If you regret making that option, that’s on you. But to just suddenly take it away and delete all of the stories that users have probably spent a decent amount of time creating isn’t right. That’s what made this app so different and fun. But now it’s like any other chat story app— worse, actually, considering the circumstances. But hey, the stories that were left are still pretty decent, so I’ll give an extra star for that. But otherwise, my overall rating is a solid two stars until this situation is fixed.
Unbelievable...
by Cleo0530 on 2019/05/30 22:43
I downloaded Hooked before when it only had stories on it and I actually made a few of my own. But then I had to delete it for storage sake. I saw so many ads for it and how it has “videos” now and I was really intrigued. So, I downloaded it because I thought I’d give it a try. I started up the app and it asked me if I like scary or romantic (I chose romantic, obviously) and it started playing the most popular video. I think it was called “Trevor and the Virgin”? Something like that. So, the video played...and then it stopped after 15 SECONDS and told me that I had to wait 15 MINUTES before I could continue watching OR I could buy a subscription to the app. I would understand if it was after each episode that I had to wait, but 15 SECONDS into ONE episode?! No thank you! As a now college student, I don’t have the ability to pay for something like this. When I had it before, there was absolutely NO MONEY involved. Now just because they added “videos”, we have to pay for it? Nope, I’m good. I enjoyed all the stories and the app before, but now I apparently need to have money to enjoy it now. That helps, thanks.
How Awesome Hooked Is
by @#catintheflame on 2018/05/25 02:54
Hooked is self explanatory, it gets you hooked. It gives you choices of horror and romance, and it gives you an in between choice. Hooked is a great app and it kind of takes you into a different reality, it gives you tons of choices for your stories and if I wanted to go to the very bottom of the let's say for example, "romantic horror" section. I would still be scrolling even if I started scrolling on Monday, and it's Friday! It's very well organized and it has a beautiful design. It shows you pictures and videos of whatever's happening. It has an audiobook option and it lets you read at your own pace, it lets you go back and just press the button as fast as you can to fast forward. Overall it's a great game and I literally play it every chance I get which is at least every day.
Lost me already
by Ashlynn124 on 2019/10/21 02:27
So I saw the ads like everyone else and thought Trevor and the virgin story looked pretty appealing. I’ve never had this app before so I downloaded it and in that processed I read the reviews so I was already skeptical about it. Well then I try to give them a shot I open the app and it asks me if I want romantic or scary. I click romantic hints cause I got on their for the Trevor and the virgin story that looked cute. Right after I clicked romantic it brought me to the show and started playing on its own. Shows him knocking on the door and her opening it and her continuing to say “Romeu has it Trevor has the biggest you know what” then it pauses and pops up an add saying to skip adds it’s only $4.99 a week. A FREAKING WEEK! So many other apps have more to offer I can watch 200 movies on Netflix for less than that. I tried to skip that and then it has a timer over the video as the video kept playing counting down from 5 so not only are they asking way to much but they also allowed me to only wast 15 second probably not even of the video so not enough for me to get hooked or care to pay at all. So it’s a waste for me
Requires a $15 a month subscription
by Wt loss 11 on 2017/10/05 06:36
I think the concept is good and the stories are intriguing but there is no way this app deserves $15 a month. I tried the free version which allows about 1 min of reading texts before you have to wait 30 min to continue reading. The story line is interesting enough to keep me coming back for the ending but not enough to get me to start another "free" story or sign up for a $15 a month subscription. $15 a month for stories in the form of texts; no grammar, no writing skills, just texts =no way! This should be free with advertising and no waiting period to continue the story and then maybe it would be worth the time. I read the 1st story and I'm embarrassed to admit I returned 5x after the 30 minute waiting periods for a stupid ending that wasn't even clear if it was actually over. I'm so annoyed to have wasted my time I will delete the app and never look back. Why would anyone be stupid enough to think they would "hook" people into subscribing for $15 a month. I wont even invest my time into reading another "free story" let alone my money. Not a smart business move for the app creators.
NAH, NOT DOING THIS
by Michael, one cool guy on 2018/01/04 04:52
This app is posting ads all over the place, so 26 years later, I decide to go for it. You start reading your spooky stories, & all you get is these picture messages. Well duh, I wanna look at the spooky pics. OOPS SORRY, GOTTA PAY $15 FOR THE SPOOKY PICS & STUFF. Well you decide to get over the pics, AND GUESS WHAT!!! You have to pay if you wanna keep reading, or you have to wait 30 minutes. In 30 minutes, I’m already over the trash story. What in the world would compel me to go back to it 30 minutes later??? Maybe if they were asking for a few bucks a month, I’d be down for some spooky pics, BUT NO, 15 DOLLARS???? I could buy like 3 Filet-O-Fish meals with that!!! I could buy like 15 McDonald’s Orange Fantas with that (minus tax of course). I could do literally anything else with that money. If you want some good spooky stories that aren’t gonna make you pay, you might as well just go on Reddit or something. Maybe you should just watch a movie. MAYBE YOU SHOULD SIT OUTSIDE IN THE DARK BECAUSE AT LEAST IT IS FREE. This is asinine, & I will not stand for this. Is this what no net neutrality is going to be like??? To conclude this essay, anything else > this app.
Nah.
by вlanĸтearѕ on 2019/05/30 14:28
Okay, let’s be honest. We are ALL annoyed at the fact that the app crashes and makes us wait a 15 minute intermission. My phone has crashed at least 23 times all the way from when I started the app 1 week ago. Oh and let’s not get started on how it makes us wait a 15 minute intermission after 10 seconds of me watching/ reading the story. This app has gotten in my nerves way to much. Especially with the fact that I can’t read one single story without my phone crashing. I just read the first part of a story and walacazam, it crashed and made me wait a 15 minute mark right after my phone crashed. It made me wait the mark not even 10 seconds of the story. I understand you’re trying to make money but it’s entirely aggravating. I mean, what are you trying to do? Make money and make us wait for no reason? Hm? This is the most aggravating app I’ve downloaded off of the App Store so far. Tbh, yarn is better than y’alls app. They do the same thing but it’s not as aggravating. The app doesn’t crash, nor does it make us wait. Get your app to the point that it DOESNT crash. Get it working correctly. Smh.
Good but need some work
by Colep508 on 2017/11/26 03:30
I used to really love this app. Don’t get me wrong I still enjoy it but recently I’ve seen something go downhill for this app. The 30 Minute timer is honestly so annoying why not like 10 minutes because that’s the reason I deleted the app on the first place(I’ve got it back recently though). One thing I’ve noticed though is that about a forth of the time I wait my time and I click once and it says I have to wait another 30 minutes. That is very frustrating. Also this app is not worth $15 a month $5 is a lot better because don’t get me Wrong this is a good app but again it is just stories in the form of texts between people (usually). And personally I hate that they took out the writing tool. I really enjoyed it. I never really wrote any myself but I loved to read my friends’ work and now that it is gone you can’t write. So the reason I’m giving this 3/5 stars is the Pricing the Wait Time and the taking away of the Writing tool. I hoped this helped:)
My opinion
by the best to learn math on 2019/04/10 03:33
I downloaded this app like last week and I like it but there are some reasons why I don’t. First of all, after reading so much of it, you have to stop and they don’t randomly make you stop for 15 minutes. They wait until it gets to the good parts to make you wait. When they make you wait, you have a choice to wait the 15 minutes or to pay some money. I don’t like this. I understand that the app needs to make money but there are other ways to do that. One way is that you can pay to write your own stories. This is a really good way to get people to pay. You could also pay to see the pictures and videos. But to pay to continue reading, that’s not a good way. These stories are really good and entertaining but I wouldn’t pay to read when there are more apps that I don’t have to pay for. I’m my opinion, I think that you should really think about what I am saying and change this. It will really make your app better and more people will get it.
Plz read: DO NOT GET THIS APP!!!!!
by Hooked is just being copied on 2019/02/19 22:26
Look, I know 1 star reviews are pretty harsh- BUT WHEN IT IS NECESSARY, I MUST USE IT! To start, I used to have this app a while ago. It was awesome. 10/10. I loved writing stories, sharing them with friends, and sitting for HOURS upon HOURS reading, I loved it! A couple years later, I remembered how much I loved it and wanted to get "hooked" (hehe) again. I downloaded it, and BOY OH BOY. They don't have photos (like what?!), there are INCREDIBLY UNBELIEVABLE wait times for your next story (I could wait in a line for a roller coaster and be off of it before the time to wait is over), and possibly worst of all is NO WRITING TOOL! Who even is making the stories now?! Bots? Or are they just keeping popular authors and forgetting the up-and-coming or non-popular authors? Ugh. Unbelievable. I deleted the app as soon as I found this out. PLEASE. CHANGE. IT. BACK. They obviously did it for money, so are you happy now? With so many people deleting the app, you probably have less than you started with. Hope your happy. Would not recommend to anyone now. Worst app ever. Thank you for reading this if you have gotten this far.
Not what I expected
by carlahart73 on 2018/01/26 19:19
How do you delete this stupid app! When I downloaded they were suppose to have pictures and audio scary stories. The pictures are stupid and not scary. And I can’t find a scary audio since the first trial version. It needs more pictures more sound more scary active stories. With pictures sent. Sounds in first story should have included a crying baby at least once. I’m going to keep looking before trial ends but so far. The stories are not audible and the picture could be so so much better. Keep me interested like the story of mom killing the dad. But the ending. The mother should have come for the baby. If baby was taken 3 days. Why didn’t it starve to death. Why didn’t the sister attempt to feed it. She should have found a bunky or a baby bag with juice or something in it. It would have been cool if the sister would have been a nursing mother and had her on child. She could have blew come minds when she nursed the baby to keep it quiet. I’m just not happy with a story line that couldn’t happen. A baby must eat. Hope to find more scary audibles. Hope they exist. If not I’m gone.
New updates destroyed it
by 😝faces on 2018/11/27 01:31
I used to love this app. Me and my friends would write ridiculous stories and make ourselves laugh until we couldn’t. We made a lot of mementoes on the app, and the update the got rid of the writing tool just killed the app for me. I might not have been so upset if they kept the stories you already made, but they deleted a ton of stories I had written and made memories with. They also deleted a lot of stories I was reading, because the people writing them didn’t work for hooked or whatever. The app has been sitting in my folder, untouched, for almost a year now. I can’t delete things on my IPhone thanks to a forgotten password but if I could delete this app I would do it in a heartbeat. I can’t stand looking at it, knowing all the memories I lost because the stories are gone. Sure, I might remember the fun and laughter, but the only way to rekindle the feeling of happiness is to actually go back to the stories and reread them, to make everyone remember. It’s just... sad, I guess. I don’t know why they decided to delete the writing tool, but doing so has ruined the app for me.
Are you kidding
by Candice.1026! on 2018/05/16 20:23
I deleted this app a while back in like 2016 or something of the sort and I saw ads for it and was like, I remember writing stories for fun on here with my friends! So I got it again to see the weird,funny, and creepy stories we wrote when I realized they TOOK AWAY THE WRITING TOOL! I was so confused so I figured at it was re-located! but boy was I wrong! They just straight up threw it out the window, I don't see the reasoning on why they decided only professional writers can write on there! Adding this writing blew up the app so shouldn't they add more writing features so more people will want to get the app and pay for the rediculous cost of premium! If they do that then the app will be noticed way more! I also think they should have aloud us to keep our stories even if they just un-published them and left for us I would be fine, and yes I have heard about the email that hook sent out about this update from Google since I was so confused, but it is so rediculous that they would take away a feature that made them so popular!
The stops between the words
by Ashley _Rainbow🐼🐵🦄 on 2019/06/13 00:45
I think it is so annoying that you read for almost at least 2 minutes then you have to stop for 15minutes so you can read it again .Also I hate how you can’t see the picture with out paying for it you can if you pay, NO I AM NOT PAYING THAT WHY I AM READING ONLINE IN THE BEGINNING TO NOT HAVE TO PAY FOR THE BOOK .so please stop making you have to pay it is so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so FREAKING ANNOYING, so please please make it free so when you are reading you don’t have to stop for 15 minutes to finish reading and so you don’t have to pay to see the picture. Because I think it good app but you get to the good part in the book and there is a picture but you can’t see it because you have to pay. I think this game hocked is a very very good game but there are so problems in the game so I will really appreciate if you guys can fix the paying problem please and thank you.................... 😊
Subscription Is Too Expensive
by wizboss1019 on 2017/10/12 19:42
I enjoy reading all of the stories in the app. I can deal with the whole "wait 30 minutes to continue" thing. My only complaint it that the subscription service is just too much. I understand that everyone nowadays needs to earn money somehow, but fifteen dollars is just too expensive for the stories. What my suggestion would be as a compromise, lower the price to about $5-$7, give free users access to the pictures, and for the subscribers only, give them the ability to write stories as well as giving them offline access (like the downloading music feature from other apps). In doing so, this will be more affordable to users, and let subscribers feel more involved. Although one thing that everyone would hate. Ads. Don't give ads. No one enjoys waiting even longer after a 30 minute wait to continue reading. Thank you for reading my review, and I hope you have a good day.
A shame.
by BellaSimone_ on 2019/04/16 00:51
I’ve seen this app through advertisement for as long as I can remember. No matter what social media app I use, there it is. But there is just one story that they share ALL the time and I have to say, it looked interesting. So after months and months and months of skipping, I decided—“Hey why not.” I open the game for the first time and a little thing pops up asking what story you want, I click romantic just because it was the first thing I clicked. The story that I’ve seen a million times starts to play. I get excited and to my amazing disappointment, the video/story plays for 15 FREAKING SECONDS. 15!!!! After those 15 seconds, a 15 MINUTE TIMER STARTS, expecting you to either wait that long or purchase some stupid access pass. Like wth!? I understand that apps have to make money but that is just a ridiculous. My recommendation is, if you want to spend $10 or more on this app, go right ahead but if you’re like me, don’t even bother. It’s honestly a shame because they have such great stories on here too.
Great App But......
by PlayBoxGames on 2018/01/13 06:27
.... I love the app it is great. I really love that you can get it and read stories for free that are decently long. The stories are addicting, dramatic, scary, and mysterious. I love reading them especially The Watcher and Clowns, but I wish there was a in app way where you could write your own stories. Like you guys could add an editor button and a New Story button because I have some great ideas for some stories. So this app would be five star if it had a edit button. So please editors of this app please, please, please add an editor mode. Just think how many more people downloading your app if someone told their friend, “Hey do you have any Romantic, Horror, Sci-fi, it mystery ideas. If so Download Hooked, so you can make your own stories.” If you do end up adding this feature thank you. Sincerely, - A Hooter
It's alright
by 👍👎🏻👌🏻 on 2017/10/24 20:35
Again I would rated three stars, because it is an all right app. But it does involve a whole a lot of waiting. Just like yarn. Another app like this one. Except in this one you have to wait longer and in yarn and have to wait a little less. Things cost more money. And you can't see your images. But on the bright side I didn't know how to operate the app and it was kind of confusing in the beginning but then the app grow on me so I deleted the app called Yarn I would suggest not having The app yarn because it takes up a lot of space and it is just not as good as hooked is. Because you really get hooked. These are scarier stories they only revolve around scary. So if you have the app Yarn delete it and this one is so much better. Yarn would be around one or two stars this one is a good 3 1/2 it's not the best app in the world but it's better than most apps like this. If you thought my review on this app is good please leave a like!
Hooked
by Gdhjdjjdjdjjxhdjjsjdkd on 2018/03/09 03:10
This app that has a lot of stories, is amazing to me. I’ve also watched the short films of it and they were creepy as hell. But I have two problems for this app, one is that why would you have to pay to read a lot of pages continually? My second question is that why would you also have to pay to see the picture cause then it gets really boring and no one likes it. Right now I am waiting for it to load it again and btw, I am reading the story “Dzuma”. And it is pretty creepy. I’ve gotta say that the people who created this app really worked really hard on this but I will ask you if you can cancel the payment thingy of the images cause a lot of people want to know what is behind that picture and otherwise, I’ve gotta say this app is was one and very helpful cause it is understandable!
Horrible
by thecrazyduuuude on 2019/09/08 04:26
This is a money begging app. I liked the stories it had so I said why not try it so I started watching the video in the beginning and after only 2 minutes it tells me to wait 20 minutes and if I want that to stop happening I have to pay 20 a month. I actually spend more time waiting than actually reading. I would never recommend this game because it is the most horrible money begging app. Only reason why you made this app is to make money off of it. You don’t try to make the people who play it happy at least and if you want to enjoy the app you have to pay 20 a month so never EVER download it. If you want to make the game better here are my suggestions: please do not make people wait 15 mins, do not make people pay $20 a month to read stories without having to wait, if you want to make money then add some passes people would want but don’t remove the main experience that people can enjoy in the app and that’s my suggestions! Please try to make the app better and I’ll consider downloading it again.
Money begging
by masonmehol on 2019/03/19 22:20
So I was on Snapchat and scrolling through recommendations and I saw the hooked story and I read the thing and I downloaded it. When I got on, it just led me straight to a story which is kind of bad kind of good.. no home menu or anything. So I read the story and the texting came up with a blurred out picture. I clicked on it to see it, and it was just like “pay your money that you need for an iTunes app that begs for money! Only 40 dollars a year!” And I was like “bruh” and I just kept scrolling through. I had to resist the urge to click the pictures.. that’s sad. So I kept reading until I was a pretty far way in. Suddenly it just comes up with “keep reading if you buy this and that” it also came up with a 15 minute timer that said with it: “start reading again in:” I closed the app and deleted it since it was a money begging app. It’s like Fortnite where you waste your precious dollars on a stupid thing. Do not download this unless you are willing to spend 5 bucks weekly for a membership.. that’s 260 dollars a year. For an app.
WAIST OF TIME DUE TO TOO MANY BUGS!!!!!
by Drea Manikowski on 2019/10/04 04:33
First off, there is a lot of good stories if you actually through them, but the app crashes ALL THE TIME, to where i have to delete it and reinstall it eveytime just to be able to get back on, but not only that being annoying it also has me select between horror or romantic, and every single time it’s the same two videos I’ve already watched and there is no way to exit out of them to finally get to the menu so i can go back to which ever story I was reading at the moment. So my options are to once one of the videos I’ve already watch but also one is 30 minutes long and the other is 15 minutes, I do NOT want to sit through a video that long that I’ve ALREADY SEEN MULTIPLE TIMES NOW. I’ve given this app more than enough chances to the point that I have decided to sadly stop trying. So unless both of these bugs are taken care of I will no longer be using this app anymore, it seems to be more of a hassle and waist of my time, that it’s not even worth the entertainment anymore!!!!!!!
This is unreal!
by ppppppppuuuuuuupppppppyyyyyyy on 2019/03/16 03:44
I love your stories but it is the dumbest thing ever That when you started a story you can’t finish it and when you get to a certain point you have to wait 15 minutes or whatever! I mean I understand that you have to pay to see pictures or something but I am only nine and I have a lot of free time so I wanted an app that I could literally get hooked on but its to much to take away from the player. I have never gotten so mad at a game or wrote a review worse than this because this the stupidest thing I have thing I have ever heard of!!!!!!!! 😡🤬 the reason I ha e it two ⭐️ is because I like the stories a lot but I would’ve given it 5 ⭐️ if this wouldn’t of happened. If I was telling you this in person you would be scared because I would be yelling my head off!!!!! 😡😡😡😡😡😡🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬 If you don’t fix this soon I will tell everybody I know and make sure that with all of my power that nobody I know will download this and I will delete it from my iPad!!!! I am very 😠
Wow...
by kailey ❤️💗 on 2019/11/06 00:25
So I just got this app like Five minutes ago and I always see ads about it and I think it’s cool whatever so I get it and the first story you can’t even go to another story like after like 10 seconds in the story you literally have to wait 15 minute breaks for you can just see the rest of the story which I think that’s ridiculous because I want to get an app that I can watch stories and read stories on without having to pay any money because there’s no point in paying for 4.99 a month just see like stupid things and also $11 just to see pictures and videos like what the heck $11 I can literally take a picture what do you me to do sell it for $11 like this absolutely kill us and this is why I think it. Needs a one star so I do not recommend getting this app because all you have to do is pay you can only watch one story and if you try or consider of watching the other ones you have to wait 10 minutes no offense to the creators of this but this is just my opinion and I do not recommend this.
Why just why
by Nicjennings on 2019/06/13 00:56
I don’t get it why put a 15 minute timer to watch the rest, it’s pointless. The app itself just starts you off with something you may even not want to watch, it doesn’t even let you choose in the beginning. Also the prices to watch the rest and see more without having to wait 15 minutes is a little to much. Overall the app is just a average over advertised hooking game hence the name. If the game is going to advertise to much at least show the rest of the texts. I thought about getting the game so many times because I thought it looked cool to see scary stories s and watch more, but I thought to watch and listen to them all the game itself would cost me but on a add I watched a few minuets before I wrote this said free so I got it. When I got on the game it did exactly what I spoke about earlier. Then told we to wait 15 minuets and I literally said this is so stupid and deleted it. That is why you should never get this app it’s a waist of money if you buy packages and a waist of time to to get the game itself.
Dissapointing.
by Pancake 1234 on 2019/08/27 10:48
Hooked is a decent app to watch videos and stories but the issue is they give you about 5 mins / five lines per video or story before saying wait half an hour! They don’t even let you read other things in the meantime! I’m not going to waste my money on the premium option that’d just be giving the creators more useless money to bask in. It’s unfair that they ask you to pay or wait 33 minutes before reading or continuing anything else. I would recommend Yarn if anything, at least that app lets you read full stories before making you wait. This app is a solid 2/5. Until they give us more access i’m using YARN. Hooked is just a waste of time and space on my phone. It’s dissapointing, all the ads show different than what the app really is. Hope this helps, and no i can’t just pay, im a minor and even my parents agree this app isn’t worth spending money over. I’ll spend money on it when i see better app quality.
I love hooked ❤️
by Kensley Granger on 2017/11/19 23:49
Hooked is like the best thing that has ever happened to me. It teached my brother how to read,it entertained me on my long journeys across the world, and also gave me inspiration to become an author someday! I’m a very smart girl and I always make good grades on my report cards it’s always A+ on every test and when I get home from school im ready to read another story. I love reading but why read regular old books when you could just read and listen on “Hooked”? All I want to say is thank you for creating this experience for me in everyday life having no friends to play with when i get home. It honestly means a lot to me to keep reading on hooked for the rest of my life and and being able when I grow up to read these amazing stories to my kids. Love, Kensley Granger (age 10)
It’s okay
by JibblyCowiios on 2018/03/19 19:54
I have had this on multiple mobile devices as a way to pass time and be able to read some actual good stories. It’s fun and interesting to me without a lot of problems. I mostly like the horror ones, but the other ones are nice too. I’ve noticed that after not using it for a while it often repeats my wait time. For example, I’ll open the app for the first time in a couple of days and immediately the app tells me I have to wait half an hour. I don’t even have to tap it a few times for this to happen which is why I uninstalled the application. Another thing is I don’t like how the stories end abruptly. It often leaves me confused and frustrated that I don’t get the meaning of the story afterwards and that it most likely wouldn’t be continued after that. Hopefully the app can get better and improve on its little bug, but for now it’s three stars from me. :)
READ BEFORE DOWNLOADING
by Cooler_mind on 2019/09/25 00:02
My first time reading its awful! It didn’t allow me to pause it at all and it kept continuing while this thing popped up that said I had to wait 5 minutes before continuing the story and it kept going so I couldn’t see or hear the story and I don’t like this because I downloaded this app thing that I’ll have 15 minutes and pauses and it would let me continue after but it paused and it didn’t make me skip 5 minutes of the story so I don’t recommend if you wanna read a full story not just little bits! Also if someone doesn’t have money like if your a child that doesn’t get money I don’t recommend because it makes you pay for seeing pictures, videos, and continuing the story faster! If a mother doesn’t give their child money/a card then their child would be missing out on a lot of important information in that story and their gonna get confused! Plus if parents want their child to read and understand what their reading GIVE THEM 5/6 DOLLARS!
The worst app I've ever downloaded
by Haille Loomis on 2017/09/18 20:33
IGNORE THE RATING, THAT WAS TO GET THIS REVIEW AT THE TOP. This app is literally stealing your money. It gets ten texts in and tells you that you need to pay to continue. They do this also if you want to see pictures, which are literally stock pics from google or something. Not to mention, I got that "free" trial and got bored, canceled the sub, and deleted the app. This was all within one day. About a month ago I couldn't download apps because of a "purchase" that need to be payed. I had to call apple and be in the phone with them for an hour trying to figure this out. APPARENTLY I was still subscribed to this terribly mediocre app with boring stories. I canceled this. I have no clue why it's stealing my money, even though I unsubscribe AND deleted the app.
Amazing!
by gsuakaavaiaoaosbshaia on 2019/03/02 14:28
When I bought this app I thought it was going to be exactly like “tap”, but it’s not. It’s WAY better. You read one story and you only have to wait 14 minutes to read another. Say what you want, but I think that’s a pretty good wait time compared to other apps like this. You also don’t even have to read the opening story (when you first open the app they give you a story to read) you can just swipe up and close out of it. If you want to read the opening story, they give you a choice between “romantic” and “horror” which I think is great, because the app “tap” doesn’t give you that option, and some people aren’t really into horror. Overall, get this app. It’s great, and it has benefits that others like it don’t.
The wait is too long
by rockin pineapple on 2018/02/10 13:10
I love this app, the stories are really interesting, but the wait is way too long. I mean I read less than one chapter and now I have to wait 30 minutes! It's ridiculous because they want you to spend $15 on their app so that you don't have to wait, but nobody wants to spend their money on some story app because they make you wait a half hour. I think Hooked is a good app, but I'm sick of waiting so long just to read one tiny chapter. Plus subscribing is way to expensive, I mean whose gonna pay $15 on an app so that they don't have to wait and they can see the spooky pictures??!??!? Once again some of the stories are good, but finding those good stories takes forever and the wait is too long. Hooked please get your act together and make subscribing cheaper, the wait time shorter, and make the picture free!
Horrible app, ugh!
by FreddyFazFamily on 2018/11/24 21:17
I wish I could give this a zero star. But sadly I can’t. You made your app horrible. At first, hooked was just AMAZING. You could make stories, read for a long time, and see images for free. But look what you did, you ruined your whole app! That’s why so many people hate it/dislike it! I don’t even know why I downloaded this horrible app again, when it’s straight up BAD. I hate what you did. Do us a favor and bring the writing tool back, out stories back, free images, and everything we want back! It’s not fair. Why do popular ones get to still write, huh? It seems like you don’t care about small users. Users who are a start. Or, it sounds like you make bots make stories! I hate this app! I used to love it! Until, like I said, you completely ruined it! I hate it now. God, it was much more fun with free images, not super expensive stuff, and the writing tool. You just have to ruin everything, don’t you?...thanks for one of the worst apps ever. (In my opinion.) >:(
I Dislike This App But That Is Just My Opinion
by So much Better than minecraft on 2018/01/12 13:11
Sometimes, this app works great. Like when I first downloaded it. Now I have had this app for months and have been reading on that and cliffhanger non stop. It was fine. But now, after months of reading, sometimes this app is the worst. Sometimes it will let me see the entirety of what I’m supposed to read in that time, but lately it has mostly just let me read three text chats. Ad this is not right because I’ll watch the countdown go down from 10 and then I’ll tap three times and it will go from thirty again. Also WHERE IS THE WRITING TOOL? I am a writer and have a story some of you may like to see however I can’t do anything about that because. THERE IS NO WRITING TOOL?!!?!??! Even if it was filtered so only like decent stories go onto the app that would be fine. But all in all when I finished the story in like 3 DAYS because of these glitches, I’m deleting the app.
Do. Not. Get. This. App.
by Idogaming on 2017/11/26 20:26
Title explains everything. You morons really must be desperate for cash, because your apps and other crap must be so terrible that no one wants to buy it. Which then leads to you idiots charging ridiculous amounts of money just to do something like seeing a PICTURE?!?!? ARE YOU KIDDING?!?!?! I’M GLAD I DON’T EVER PLAN ON WORKING FOR YOUR COMPANY!!!!!!! CHARGING HAMILTONS AND LINCOLNS OVER AND OVER JUST TO READ SOME LAME STORIES!!!!!!! Let me tell you quarterwits something right now! If I ever DID work for your hopeless company, at least I would have a FUNCTIONAL and WELL THOUGHT OUT business plan. Like, oh, I don’t know, letting subscribers have the opportunity to write stories on their own, or letting people see the pictures for free, also a ONE minute waiting period instead of THIRTY! Charge $5 for a subscription, and 50 cents a month. Get your crap together, guys. Your app is absolutely unacceptable. Take the time to actually READ and TAKE TO HEART what I have just said to you, because if you don’t, it’s your company’s funeral.
Horrible
by JJCoogii🔥 on 2019/04/24 03:15
Let’s start off by saying that as soon as you start up the app, it asks you which story would you like romantic or horror. I picked horror and so they played a video which had nothing on there. I clicked it and it said I had to wait 15 mins and it pulled up he subscription stuff. WHO WANTS TO PAY JUST TO READ STORIES!?So I was really disappointed and mad because of this. Daily I see the ads from HOOKED and it says "Trevor and The Virgin". So I was FINALLY convinced to download it so I could start reading. But I didn’t know it would not automatically take you to all of the options. Can the HOOKED developers please come out with a update that where you do not have to wait 15 mins. You don’t have to pay just to see images and videos. And just generally let you just read the stories.. Don’t get me wrong, the stories that HOOKED shows as ads are REALLY entertaining and gets ME hooked to it. That’s why it was so convincing. But when I downloaded it I was EXTREMELY disappointed.
