THIS APP IS SO MONEY HUNGRY 🤑🙄
by goldfeeeeiiiiisshh! on 2020/08/06 19:06
They literally force you to pay for everything. First of all, it the app was great about 2-3 years ago. Now when you download it you have to buy a membership to read. I can’t find an x anywhere. You also have the pay for pictures. That is SO stupid. I think we can all agree on that. And the make you take numerous amounts of breaks. For numerous amount of minutes. You have to pay if you don’t want the breaks. This app needs to stop being to money hungry. It’s actually irritating. Don’t waste your time and money. 🚨 This is a warning 🚨do now download this app!
Boring
by Skee Yeet on 2020/08/06 02:11
The only thing I’m hooked on is deleted this app after I finish this. This used to be a good app now it’s just about money.
bull crap
by proffittttttt on 2020/08/05 15:44
this is complete bull crap that i cannot get into the app without paying i know that yes they need to make money but there are people who just want to watch some stories who don’t have enough money to pay for it like me so i suggest not getting this app because if you don’t have the money to pay $20 a month then you can forget it😒
k
by lipathy on 2020/08/05 03:27
why make the app free if we just have to play afterwards
Very terrible 👎
by natalie graces world on 2020/08/05 02:46
This game is just very bad! Here’s why.. So, when you go on the app it asks if you have membership, and it forces you to buy it! So basically, you have to buy it to play.. I don’t like this game!
Seriously
by landonparnell on 2020/08/05 01:23
I used to love the scary stories but now it’s stuck on premium screen
Horrible
by Puushiii on 2020/08/04 23:50
I can’t even get into the app I can only buy the premium thing this app is horrible to install.
Why is it even called free?
by rockstar2006829 on 2020/08/04 16:14
So I used to have this app a couple years ago. It was nice and the stories were actually pretty good and entertaining but after I stopped using it, I deleted it. I saw some adds now for it and decided to give it a try. When I download the app, it instantly asks me for premium. I can’t even “x” out, I can only press continue I do and it tries to compete a transaction. I cancel and see anything to do. I press that I already have an account and it says I don’t. Then I press log in and it doesn’t work. Every deleting it and redone loading doesn’t work. At this point I’m annoyed so I just delete it. I understand making money, but that’s not the way. Add more things with money. Make other things a little more expensive. But this is not the way.
It could be better...
by Gravesdawg on 2020/08/04 13:31
I totally love this game it’s so cool and I know you guys put a lot of work in to it but I could be better.. you shouldn’t have to pay to get a better game.. and you shouldn’t have to wait like 1 hour for a story and then in the middle of it you have to wait more. So there’s my review and thank you for making the game and it’s awesome! But like I said it could be better.
Premium Page
by Ashantilololoooool on 2020/08/04 07:42
I used to have the app and now they added more to it so I wanted a look. But when I first got the app I could not get past the premium page I looked for the X everywhere, maybe if I could try it out I would buy the premium.
I’m not paying $20/month for premium
by lagert on 2020/08/04 03:08
Y’all are out of your minds WHACK! I downloaded Hooked after seeing an advertisement for it. I enjoyed the stories and did not mind the ads. I deleted the app and redone loaded recently to save space in my phone. Now I can’t get into anything and there’s no way out of the Premium Screen. I get Netflix and Disney + combined for less a month than you’re asking for this. Don’t download, waste of time if you can’t even view the stories without paying $20/month. They're ok but not that plentiful, diverse or worth it.
Really.!!!
by laysha.v on 2020/08/04 00:27
I used to have this app a about 1 year ago and now it’s a total waist I re download it and I can even use it if you don’t have a subscription I don’t recommend
Forced Premoum option needs to go
by Gezrii on 2020/08/03 22:46
Whenever I try to use the app it asks if I want to try Premium which is fine, a lot of apps ask for that, however it doesn’t give you an option to exit out of it, so either you sign up for premium or you don’t get access to anything. Please fix this!
What a joke!
by Star Champion on 2020/08/03 21:20
I had this app a few years ago but I got bored so I deleted and now I saw all these adds and I’m not going to lie I wanted to see that cheesy Trevor and the virgin story. I was immediately disappointed to find out that you have to pay for it. I knew that on most stories you had to pay for extra things like pictures and/or voices but now u can even watch’s one thing without paying twenty dollars a month! Twenty dollars is a lot of money for a stupid app that isn’t even that good. I’m so disappointed! You put out all these adds and then you can’t even use the app what a joke!
Love it but now hate it
by Lobonegro300 on 2020/08/03 12:15
I used to read these awesome stories and it would be cool to re-read some or see if there’s new ones. But this came up if I wanted to pay to see the videos or photos. I used to like it when I didint see the photos and videos lol I’m just interested in the story. So please if you can put an X or something please do. Because I just wasted 10m of my Time here trying to enter this App.
You pay money
by bia and yaya fir the win on 2020/08/03 04:12
You have to pay like what hell no honey and it is just a app
It let me in last time
by the doggie girl511 on 2020/08/02 20:38
So I loved hooked it was so fun so a got it Again and do it said to pay then I saw put email so I put it in and kicked me out why?! So I guess I missed the update 😠😐
Why have to pay now
by Cassy and Paigey on 2020/08/02 20:04
You used to never have to pay, but you would have to wait a little, and not be able to watch every single thing, but the fact that you have to pay for everything now, is so annoying, just why did I you have to do this, just why 🤬
come on
by #IveSeenIt on 2020/08/02 14:29
i downloaded the app cuz i wanted to read the stories i saw the add and i'm like cool i wanna read it then i download the app and it asks me for premium or whatever and like i don't want it so i didn't pay for it then i cant get out of it like i tried signing up at the bottom now it just says i'm connected? bro like how do i get out of that screen help cuz i'm not gonna pay to read some people texting like come on be realistic
Are you serious!?
by Minniemouse1996 on 2020/08/02 08:26
I don’t remember this app being 20$ a month!? And if it was that’s ridiculous! I already used my 3 day trial but wanted to watch some of the shows I never finished. But I can’t even open it without having to pay for a 20$ subscription a month!? Goodbye..
1 star
by Aubrey😱 on 2020/08/02 00:46
I wish I could go on there and read stories without having a trial for it🙄
Makes no sense
by JT Hockey28 on 2020/07/31 19:26
I used to love this app. I used pretty much all day to be honest. I loved the stories, all the genres to choose from. Today I redownloaded the app to find out you have to pay to read?? Makes no sense.
Horrible
by ?Good.Or.Bad? on 2020/07/31 19:13
Too many ads
Scam
by theotherguy110 on 2020/07/31 01:24
it’s 25 dollars a month and it never showed me. I lost 30 dollars and found out it was this overpriced price of garbage.
Money problems
by chloe howarf on 2020/07/30 22:21
So I had this app awhile ago like some years ago and not everything was free but most was so you know a ad pop up on snApchat and I said oh I remember this then I download it I was sooo disappointed bc the only way you can watch movies is by paying money to me it looks like a rip off or scam but this is definitely not getting five stars
Tf
by balnp on 2020/07/30 20:58
You have to pay to get in, seriously
Why do I have to pay?
by User2255672 on 2020/07/30 18:01
This app is ridiculous. Why do we have to pay every month and I can’t even get into the app. Some people just want to read or watch what this app hast to offer but if it hat the sign up part. And if you don’t do it you will have to pay monthly. That is why I give this app a one star review.
I have to pay
by vontrecia on 2020/07/30 15:24
I have to pay for hooked and I use to have but know I have to pay and I don’t want to pay for it
Hi hooked
by sky bot22 on 2020/07/29 22:14
I had the app before but for some reason I deleted it but now I have it back and I have to pay why?but I still love hooked.
😖😖🤬😡 are u serious
by audriforlife44 on 2020/07/29 21:41
All I won’t to do is whack something or read something scary but noooo it just says do I want premium and I don’t want it are u kidding me 😡😡
HAVE TO PAY!
by johns itunes dont erase on 2020/07/29 19:33
I had this game like 2-3 years ago and I would always love reading the scary stories. I had a idea to where me and my friend could read a story on here. We downloaded it again but you have to pay to read the storys! I’m so sad this is not free anymore
Dorian Filter
by jerisharp on 2020/07/29 16:40
I loved the story! Very clever and scary, as I have been known to use a filter on my own photos. I will definitely remember this story the next time I use a filtering app.
Not what it used to be.
by ThisRedBirdTho1⃣7⃣ on 2020/07/28 19:40
This app used to be amazing! The stories were interesting and definitely kept me up a few nights. Now the stories are so bland, ads are ridiculous and constant and premium? Seriously premium? Y’all are money hungry
Refuse to pay
by xoxobree on 2020/07/28 17:06
Can we read this without havin to pAy for it 🤦🏾‍♀️ . I really wanted to read these !
It’s Free And We Have To Pay?
by talon l on 2020/07/28 08:58
It literally says free! But nope we have to pay so just one star delete the app Apple or just make it free
This ain’t it chief
by lillypopppers on 2020/07/28 08:27
so I used to have this app but I uninstalled it for storage. I got it again and it’s really out here asking to pay for premium. Why u gotta be so obsessed with money that u gotta ruin a perfectly good app that used to be free.
I don’t like it
by ggfejdusj on 2020/07/28 04:18
I hate having to see that you have to pay for whole app I wouldn't recommend it to no one In my opinion you should let the app free and people would it
Es muy buena
by zzzzxvz on 2020/07/27 23:25
Muy buena
Should be free
by love it. it's a big help on 2020/07/27 19:06
I loved this app so much a while ago and I got a random urge to download again and read some stories. I’ve heard that they do videos now so I go exited. Until I realized that you have to pay 20 a month which i ridiculous I miss the old free app I’d rather just watch it on YouTube now.
Not working
by A horrible idea on 2020/07/27 16:54
I cannot get to the actual stories app is stuck on the three day free trial page
Forced to buy premium???
by Pikalulz on 2020/07/27 16:10
Why is it stuck on the screen to buy premium? I definitely don’t want that. Now I’m uninstalling.
Why just premium
by 3415159 this is pie on 2020/07/27 15:42
I loved this app many years ago and I wanted to be thrilled again to I downloaded hooked and as I opened the app it told me a had to pay premium to do anything so I tried to hit I already have access and it said that there wasn’t one so I deleted the app and and rote a review
Life of the party
by Ronicky1 on 2020/07/27 08:39
Great, adventurous and adrenaline rush. Enjoyed the outcome.
Just download Yarn
by babybabybabyaww on 2020/07/27 08:38
This app is so misleading a few years ago I had it then I had to delete it because of storage problems I tried re-downloading it and I HAVE TO PAY! I just wanted to go back to my favorite stories and re-read them but now I can’t so I go to Lure and Yarn. It’s the same type of app but free I was really looking forward to downloading this again but not I’m disappointed. Moral of the story is DONT DOWNLOAD THE APP
They just want money
by CATS RULE 101🐾🐾🌴 on 2020/07/27 07:15
This was the best app ever but then it now asks the pay $20.00 a month when I just open the app. You guys don’t care about us you just care about getting that money!
Hella Trash
by Daddy Anonymous💞 on 2020/07/27 03:55
This all is hella trash I got this all cause my friend was confused on why it won’t work. I got the app and opened in and it keeps on wanting me to get premium. Which ain’t gonna spend $20 for some stupid premium. (Rather eat a pigs ass than do that) I even cleared out the tab and all of my tabs to see if it would work but nope so if I were you don’t get this app!!💅🧚‍♀️✨
Can you seriously fix this?
by Asuna.Chan. on 2020/07/27 00:19
Payed for the 3 day trial, only got a 2 day trial, and took my iTunes money away from me without the full trial or a warning that money was being taken from me. Next thing you know it’s been 4 days later and now when I open hook I hear a “intense” sound and it stays on a black screen not working even if I were to restart my phone or anything. You really outdone yourself like can you please fix this on my account or refund me?
Freaking premium.
by gamingkid382 on 2020/07/26 08:41
Who wants to pay, for a FREAKING scary story for, four bucks a month? I can just go on YouTube and search, “scary stories” and BOOM no pay, just stories, who’s with me? You tube is way better than this dumb app.
Awful
by Joseph Rezan on 2020/07/25 23:05
When I watched your ad I said seems cool BUT when I downloaded it I had to buy prime? Are you serious who are you your just hungry for money could you just at least put it for free
🧐🤨???
by cuchinchis on 2020/07/25 20:33
Umm ok so I downloaded it because I love the ads and I finally got permission to download it and when I do it takes me straight to the hooked unlimited which I’m fine without so is there anything you guys can ek to change that it is both on hooked(this one) and hooked tv!
I’ve literally just downloaded the app and have a bad impression
by Paige Fears on 2020/07/25 15:51
I’ve wanted to see the scary stories I open the app and it automatically takes me to a page of subscriptions, there was no way to leave the page, not a X button not a cancel button or even a demo shown. To the people that are not willing to pay please don’t download. It’s only giving them more money, total ware if time.
$20 a month?
by Silver1108 on 2020/07/25 13:11
Like others I had this app a few years ago and yeah you had to wait a certain amount of time to read the rest of the story. I always chose horror so that got annoying quickly. Now it looks like it’s asking you upfront for $20 to even get access! I mean what? Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime is cheaper than that. It used to be that you at least had access to the limited stories for a limited amount of time but now you “gEt A 3 dAy FrEe TrIaL” before having to pay $20 a month?! I think it’s a scam and the advertisements show you there absolute best material
The ads are click baiting
by krazybossYT on 2020/07/24 16:23
When I was a kid I downloaded the app and thought the things were scary but the mic was only on for a limited time for the scary story’s and I had to use my money to get the mic on for a LIMITED TIME so I didn’t do it and I just had to get scammed, I’m lucky this app doesn’t costs any money, or I don’t remember it costing any money. The ads are getting worse by the time, don’t get clickbaited by the ads though
I CAN’T USE THE APP
by HarleyQuinnIs#1 on 2020/07/24 15:15
I played this when it first had came out then I ended up deleting it. It was fine before and now I have a new phone so I re-downloaded it because of the ads I saw on YouTube and when I got into the app, I can’t use it unless I buy premium. There’s no exit button I can tap so I can exit out of the premium page. It’s quite annoying, I don’t mind paying at least for 2 months but the fact that I can’t use the app without the premium is annoying. You should’ve just made the app cost money or something. This is the same thing for Hooked TV
Premium
by tik tak toe jkk on 2020/07/24 14:01
I don’t like how now you have to do the trile because you dint have to do it before so I’m just upset at that
Kk
by kiyalaynh on 2020/07/24 05:13
I hate you have to pay to even get on the app
Terrible
by Biancayeeeet on 2020/07/24 04:19
I used to have this app and it was a pretty good app so I decided to redownload it and it takes you to hooked premium but there’s no x button so you can’t do anything I was so disappointed this is such a terrible terrible app
Garbage it used to be free

Garbo
Down graded version.
by 𝚜𝚘𝚙𝚑𝚒𝚎♡︎ on 2020/07/23 23:47
When I used to have this app which was about 2-3 years ago it was free for the most part, or at least I never paid for anything. Anyway, since I’m quarantined I decided to download it again because I remembered how fun it used to be, once I got into the app it wanted me to pay for premium? Which I didn’t want that but I looked all around my screen to see no x button or cancel corner. I mean, from what I remembered it was text messages that were made into a creepy story, all kinds of them. And every 8-10 minutes of reading those messages it would make you take a 15 minute break in between readings. (Unless you paid) now, you can’t read anything with paying? Which I don’t think was a smart idea of this app to do in there recent updates, only because yes the stories were good but would I pay to read them? nah. i think they would have a lot more customers as well as better reviews on there app if it was the same as it used to be. If you weren’t forced to pay if would of sparked my attention 10 times more than it actually did. Overall, needs many many changes.
I would give it no stars
by djdjdkjsdjdj on 2020/07/23 19:57
I was excited to use it but u have to pay for it what a waste! -0 stars
They just want your money.
by lil al' on 2020/07/23 07:37
I downloaded this app for fun stories as it promised. However as soon as I loaded the app it ask me to buy a membership. I looked for the x sign but it wasn’t there. Basically the app was worthless to me unless I was willing to give them what they wanted. I mean to be honest of course they’d want money and sometimes would give u more abilities and perks by paying but this app didn’t let me use it at all. As of right now I’m sticking to Netflix
Stop Scary Ads
by playerroseprawn on 2020/07/23 07:33
I’m only here because your ad scared the hell out of my daughter. She was playing a normal children’s game when an ad for hooked pops up with a scary face on it. Please remove the scary pop up advertisement for parents and children’s sake!

It Won’t Let Me Open The Home Page...
by tfrccvttvrce on 2020/07/22 22:54
When I try to find the cancel button or press continue it won’t let me go to the home page. I can’t but anything, so yeah. But also it says “cannot connect to iTunes Store” even though I have iTunes... can you please add a X button or a cancel button? Thank you!
Doesn’t even deserve a one star
by Yoteslaye on 2020/07/22 22:02
I used to have this app a few years ago when it was just a chat story app that only had you pay to see images and read more stories daily. I enjoyed some of the stories back in the day and recently saw some ads for it, so I decided to redownload it. I opened the app to a screen that tells you to buy their absolute waste of money premium subscription that is a whopping $19.99 a month. As far as I could tell there was no way of exiting past the premium subscription screen without actually buying it. So if you were wanting to enjoy some stories for free avoid this garbage of an “free” app.
A SCAM
by Awesome game best evar on 2020/07/22 21:28
I have 3 complaints about this. 1. 3/6 years ago When I try too view the pictures it’s like 11$ like really. Why would I waste money for pictures i mean like just for pictures? Why the hell would I take that purchase? Just for my money. 2. Complaint is that I got premium but it would just exit the app for me! What a scam they just want your money I say do NOT BUY THIS APP🚫if you don’t want your money too be wasted then do not buy this app 🚫🙅🏼‍♀️ 3. So I tried too get the app again but then it would just log me out. I was in shock because it had scammed me before this is such a scam I said so don’t buy this.
My review on Hooked
by haroldstevens1234 on 2020/07/22 20:59
This app is very good the stories don’t have jump scares which is nice. It is very interesting and the stories make me wanna keep reading, I recommend downloading this app
Stop making us spend money
by apgoboom2008 on 2020/07/22 16:31
It’s ridiculous that you have to make us pay for premium in order to use the app! A couple of years ago you didn’t have to pay for premium in order to use the app. Just stop and let us use the app without premium!!
Why do I have to pay?
by Tough-Customer on 2020/07/22 03:43
I had the hooked app a few years back but deleted it. When I downloaded it in 2020 not only did I not see the stories because there was no x, but It says you have to pay a fee of $19.99 a month. So like any person would do I deleted the app then reinstalled it. When I go into it, it still said I have to pay a fee and there is not an x in sight. I don’t like that we have to pay for something that was free a few years ago. How many years do I have to wait before this app is free again?
I won’t let me in
by sdjv fi BF du has chg on 2020/07/22 01:08
Ok so I just downloaded the app and it won’t let me in the app it’s only on the premium page
Why should you have to pay to read
by pr3ttybraat on 2020/07/21 17:05
Reading is good for children and hooked has fascinated reading in making reading more interesting but when they get famous they want you to pay🙄
Please fix this glitch
by Endbreaker10 on 2020/07/21 16:33
So my friend recommended this to me so I installed it and the only I see it hooked premium and there is no x so I can’t use the app
ONLY PREMIUM
by Chanel Monique on 2020/07/21 06:58
I had this app when it initially became popular a few years ago and it was great but I kid you not each year or so I‘ll re-download it or decide to use it again; and each time the app becomes mo e restricted and the time I’d have to wait in between parts of stories became longer and longer. But now, you literally can’t read not one paragraph without paying for premium. Just wow
I just wanna watch
by gio's customs 2469 on 2020/07/21 05:01
15 minute ad break really fake hooters lookin boi. Jk but still FIFTEEN. Also I redone loaded app and now I can’t get it free
THIS IS FAR FROM A GOOD APP
by Jensisideedisisnej on 2020/07/21 03:41
You know from all the freaking ads I seen on this app they all advertised it like it was free I checked out hooked TV and guess what ??!! You gotta pay 19.99 a month for some knock off , off brand TV shows .. then I looked up this app thinking maybe it was free ?? I guessed very wrong this is BS . I can pay for Netflix , Hulu and amazon prime and get more for paying less , this app is a shame , in my personal opinion it shouldn’t even be on the App Store anymore but hey we all got opinions. Right ? Right . P.S sorry for the rant it just really ticked me off because the story’s didn’t look half bad .
Paying
by stupid freaking dinosaur on 2020/07/21 02:21

by maui.124 on 2020/07/21 00:27

There is literally no x button and it makes you pay 20 dollars. Not my kind of thing.
Couldn’t even do anything
by Mia.E.W on 2020/07/20 20:10
I just downloaded the app and I can’t even do anything!! As soon as I got on a premium trial came up but I didn’t want premium so I was just gonna skip it but I couldn’t.I was stuck on the free trial thing and couldn’t get out. I was really excited to get the app and start reading stories but I couldn’t I do not recommend!!!
No X button
by RobinAshido on 2020/07/20 18:42
THERE IS NO X BUTTON- I remember when I first played and you had the choice whether you wanted to pay or not. I guess the update changed that. Bad app. Can’t even play without paying.
Made you get premium!😤
by Tsrh0421 on 2020/07/20 18:06
I downloaded this app so I can read scary stories when I opened the app it would not let me go passed the premium so I can watch them for free (it’s 19.99 a month btw)
Gave do
by Un prof de français on 2020/07/20 15:41
This game is trash 🗑 it trash you cant listen to stories unless you pay 20.00 like what the hell
Why
by Flip_1 on 2020/07/20 15:25
I used to love this app until they made it where you HAVE to get premium, like ion want that!! I just wanna read some story’s and stuff. I ain’t paying $20 a month, that’s stupid.
Couldn’t get out of hooked premium
by Luca Rossette on 2020/07/20 02:22
I was pretty much forced to get. Hooked premium luckily I didn’t fall for it I had no choice to exit out of hooked premium so this is why I’m leaving them a one star review I hope this happens to no one else because this is bs fix this
Uh-
by Big T.S. on 2020/07/20 01:51
Sorry to bother but this isn’t really an issue. I downloaded your app a while ago and deleted it, but since Hooked got updated, there’s a new page that pops up when you download it. It explains why you should buy Hooked Premium, and I didn’t want to. I tried everything to get off that page, but it just wouldn’t work? What do I do to get off of it? I’m so sorry I’ve wasted your time! But please answer and thank you?
All I see is a Do YoU wAnT pReMuM screen
by yoloking1111 TTV on 2020/07/19 22:15
This is a big problem for an app that’s free and when you go into the “free” app it asks if you want pReMuM but there’s no exit to that screen... fix this or I will flag
Scam
by Baka18273 on 2020/07/19 22:00
I can’t even get into the app without paying for premium, I don’t mind that much to wait to read but when I can’t even get into the app without paying for something is ridiculous
Why just premium?¿?
by Ⓛ🅐ⓖ🅖Ⓨ_🅣Ⓐ🅕Ⓕ🅨 on 2020/07/19 21:24
Bruh I downloaded the app cuz I saw the “scary story” add.anyways I download the game cuz It sounded like something I would be into.so I open the game and it asks me for premium and I kept tapping the screen and waiting for an X to pop up but nothing happened.so creators of hooked if you are reading this STOP ASKING PEOPLE FOR PREMIUM!!!!!
Bruh
by rickejcj Ed wjxjejciwjxjjxjejf on 2020/07/19 21:07
Okay so.... I’ve had this app before I just deleted it once because my phone told me I had too much storage.

by kittie galaxy on 2020/07/19 20:33
So I saw an ad on this and thought it was cool so installed it and as soon as I get BAM premium (did I spell it right) and there was no x button no nothing just premium tried everything just yup you guessed it premium I really hope hooked fixes this horrible app
I like the old one better
by MrTopJimmy on 2020/07/19 19:13
The first time I downloaded this app and it asked if I wanted the premium. I was able to watch movies and stories but still had ads in the videos unless I bought the premium version. Fast forward to today and it’s like they are saying either I buy the premium or don’t use the app at all.
Why
by galexy fox animations on 2020/07/19 18:57
I can’t access the story’s and I don’t want to pay by I might want to delete pls someone tell me how to get in without paying
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.
Bro really
by flamer-man on 2020/05/22 00:42
Had the app 2-3 years ago and was super into it, would read its scary stories every night and there were very interesting ones but got rid of it when I got a new phone and was serious on not junking you my phone or storage. I see all the ads but I don’t consider re-downloading it because I already know how the story ends since I read it before. I downloaded it again because I wanted to re-read some stories I remember and see the new stories that look interesting. Bro.....I download it and instantly says do I wanna get premium.... I don’t see an x or no so I put continue and exit out to see if I can get out....nothing.....I then tap I already have a subscription and it says I don’t.....I am still stuck on the screen and I’m swiping everywhere. I can’t get out, it just shows this screen if I want premium and I really done because when I had it before I was fine with the way it was not being able to see pics, vids or audio so I don’t want premium BUT I also just wanna see the story and it’s not letting me. I delete it, re-download it and yea man it stills take me to if I want premium. I don’t, I can’t leave it so I can’t use the app so I really wish I can give it 5 stars but why will I do that if I can never get in the app😑. So yea I didn’t experience the app and I understand they need to make money but this right here ain’t it. Hopefully if gets fixed in the future. Until then I’m not changing my mind.
Total Scam If You Ask Me
by alyhof7579 on 2020/01/09 14:44
You could watch more of the shows from the app on ads than you can watch in the actual app without a subscription. I decided to download the app (again from 2 years ago, it looked like it had improved [it hadnt]) was forced to choose between romance and horror (okay whatever) chose romance and immediately it started playing Trevor and the Virgin (without my permission) WITHOUT A BACK BUTTON OR AN ESCAPE BUTTON and then not even FIFTEEN SECONDS pass and it says “you have to wait 5 minutes to resume the show or purchase the full version. Like what? How am I supposed to even know I want to watch the show in a 15 second blip? I have literally seen longer clips of the show from AN ADVERTISEMENT than I got to see on the actual app. They shouldn’t even waste their time making a “free” version at this point. Just tell people it costs money instead of making them so angry from the interruptions and lack of choice that they either delete the app or angrily purchase it. Terrible setup and I would not recommend to anyone. The only reason this app even has positive ratings is probably because the app said “give us a 5 star rating and we’ll remove your wait time for one time only.” Bologna if you ask me. This app actually got worse. At least I used to get to click through a minutes worth of texting before the ad popped up. Worst app in the history of apps. Don’t corner people, Hooked. It’s lame.
Don’t Waste Your Money
by Mari’s Phone on 2020/01/11 20:07
This review will be updated pending a response from customer support. The ads are so misleading. I got this app on a whim, watched a couple videos and realized it was stupid. The content is targeted towards an immature preteen audience and the plot lines of every story were annoyingly cliche and cringey. The app had very limited selection of content for each genre and only a few videos for each, the rest were all audio. Just get an actually interesting audiobook from the library for free people! So I deleted the app. Unbeknownst to me, I was automatically subscribed and was being charged EVERY WEEK. I happened to stumble upon the information in my settings just by chance. I don’t even splurge on a Netflix subscription, which is so much better and is way cheaper ($5 every week for an extremely limited selection of content aimed at a very specific audience?? And if I recall, the app still had ads on top of that. Get over yourselves developers.) I wish I’d gotten at least some kind of notification that I was being charged. Even Netflix has the courtesy to send out email reminders before a trial ends and a subscription renews so you can cancel if you don’t want to pay. I contacted costumer support and explained this, so I’ll remove this if they work with me. But as of right now I’m really annoyed I wasted money on nothing.
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.
Only Premium? No thanks.
by Lilthing101 on 2020/06/25 19:58
So I had this app on my phone about a year or two ago. I enjoyed reading different stories on it almost every day/night. I’m not into scary stories. So when I read all the non scary stories I and couldn’t find any new ones I decided to wait for more. I would periodically open the app to check for new stories. I couldn’t find any and after awhile I just deleted the app. I just got a new phone and saw an ad for “The Girl With Purple Hair”. It looked interesting so I went to redo load it. It just gave me the option for Premium. I couldn’t find a no or an “x” to get out of it. So I click continue. It’s saying that it won’t work because there’s not enough credit. So then I try the “I already have access” link. I do that and it says I don’t have a subscription. I try both options multiple times after deleting and re-downloading the app, to no avail. I understand that the developers of these apps need to make money. Especially to pay for new updates, and improvements. This whole Premium Only isn’t an improvement at all. Make us watch more video ads. Maybe one or two videos ads that last three minutes total before each new chapter or episode. Make us pay more to see videos and pictures. Don’t make us pay premium in order to experience the app.
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!
Only Hooked Premium
by A beginner Editor on 2020/05/17 02:22
I kept seeing this app pop up in my ads all the time. I had it a couple years ago but shortly got bored and deleted it. Until now, when i decided to download it again because it seemed like it had gotten better and more interesting than it was a couple years back. So, as soon as Hooked was done downloading i decided to open it and soon got faced with Hooked Premium. I wasn’t going to pay for premium so I was going to click the “X” button. But there wasn’t one. I waited a couple second to see if one would appear, but it didn’t. I tried swiping every way on the screen to get out of the promotion but it wouldn’t let me out of the screen. I decided to delete it and then download it again to see if it was just a glitch, but it wasn’t. To be honest I was very disappointed of what this app has become. In my opinion the app has gotten worse than what it had been some years ago. I get the app has to make money but i would appreciate it if it found better ways to. Anyways, I hope this issue gets fixed for others but ho are interested but I think for now I would rather read Webtoon, which is an app I would recommend.
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.
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
Down graded version.

When I used to have this app which was about 2-3 years ago it was free for the most part, or at least I never paid for anything. Anyway, since I’m quarantined I decided to download it again because I remembered how fun it used to be, once I got into the app it wanted me to pay for premium? Which I didn’t want that but I looked all around my screen to see no x button or cancel corner. I mean, from what I remembered it was text messages that were made into a creepy story, all kinds of them. And every 8-10 minutes of reading those messages it would make you take a 15 minute break in between readings. (Unless you paid) now, you can’t read anything with paying? Which I don’t think was a smart idea of this app to do in there recent updates, only because yes the stories were good but would I pay to read them? nah. i think they would have a lot more customers as well as better reviews on there app if it was the same as it used to be. If you weren’t forced to pay if would of sparked my attention 10 times more than it actually did. Overall, needs many many changes.
It could be more organized
by Kenny8302 on 2020/03/06 04:12
I like the stories and videos and all, they’re very good, but I wish that there were categories for things. Like if I’m looking for a horror story for example, I have to go to the search to search for a horror story. I think that it would be easier if there were categories because then you wouldn’t have to search for a horror story. And some people don’t know what the names of the stories are so they’re just looking up random stories without any specific story to look for. There could be categories for horror, romance, mystery, comedy, etc. ALSO, I wish that there was a summary for each story/video because I want to know what the story is going to be about before I actually start reading it. It used to be like this, with the categories and summaries for each story and it was great, but for some reason the developers got rid of all of this. I just think that these things would make it easier to find the stories that people would be interested in reading.
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
NAH, NOT DOING THIS

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.
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.
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!!!!!

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.
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.
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.
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!
Help me out
by Madison likes games on 2020/07/07 00:05
I had this app for a little while but then deleted it because I never used it and I needed to free up storage. Today, I decided, “hey, this app was great and has great stories, I’ll get it again”. Then app downloads and I go to it and it asks if I want premium. Since I’m a teenager, I don’t have a credit or debit card, or a gift card but there is no x button to get me out of it. So, I go to get the free trial so that I can use it, but it said I need payment. I try the “I already have access” button, but it says “no account found or something”. LET ME X OUT OF THIS SCREEN! I had this app before but there was always an x button there. Please fix this I want to use this app. I’m not spending 20 dollars a month on an app. If you guy want us to pay premium, that’s fine, but don’t force us to. This app is free but having to pay 20 bucks a month just to use it! You might as well make this app cost money. I’d rate it higher if you fix this. Other people also have this problem. You shouldn’t have to pay premium to be able to use this app. I’m done ranting. Fix this.
Can’t handle it!
by annoyed custermer on 2020/01/12 20:42
I can’t do this anymore I have to wait 15 minutes just to read a page ,I download this app so I can watch videos and read more(btw there are some tea that needs to be spelt in some stores) but I can’t spill the tea if I have to wait extra 15 minutes just to read a page who ever made this app knows what there doing there just trying to get money by spamming people, the app is annoying, the first Time I got on it I was happy but then the cash was keep popping up so I got annoyed and frustrated bc I couldn’t read even ONE page and that’s not a lot. This app is basically spamming you for your money and it’s wasting your time. I get that the owner(wants)needs money but if they keep doing the time like that then there not going to get any typ of money because people are going to get annoyed with the app and there not going to pay because of the owner wanted money then he/she could have asked for money from the beginning to end instead of popping up on the screen and having to wait and extra 15 minutes just to read a page 🙄😤
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.
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!
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!
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)
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.
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.
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.
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. :)
Why pay monthly???
by _-Crystal-_ on 2020/01/02 23:28
The reason why I rated 3 stars is the fact the stories and shows are good but the fact that you have pay monthly just so that you can fully understand what story/show is about is totally inconvenient like why do you have to wait for more than five minutes while watching a show just because you didn’t pay for the full version? And I know and understand that you guys work hard and need some money to keep going but can’t you make money just from people buying new stories and shows instead of making them pay monthly for interesting clips and story parts. You’ll also need to understand that not everybody can afford to pay or is not being allowed to pay by their parent/guardian. I would really like to leave a good 4-5 star rating but only when the app is suitable for everyone to watch ( money- wise)
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!
Waste of Your Time
by Bruhhh_3827449 on 2020/04/25 19:39
Don’t be fooled by the amount of ads you get about this app through others. The many ads are used to draw in your curiosity. Though nothing about this app is worth your attention As soon as you install and open the app, you are immediately granted a subscription option. If you chose to decline the subscription, as any smart person would. They give you two choices of genre, Horror or Romance. Whichever choice you pick immediately brings you into a story that you cannot exit out of without being bombarded with the same subscription option. On top of this, you are granted no more than 10-15 seconds of the story. Until they force you to wait 5 minutes to explore more parts. The only way you can avoid these pauses are again, through their purchase option. I really want you to know. This app isn’t worth an ounce of your money. The “free-trial” story options they give. Are incredibly lackluster and the acting portrayed is indeed terrible. Specifically with their big ad feature, “Trevor and the Virgin.” Paying money for a cheesy, watered-down teen drama when you could literally just read better versions of this written by more talented people ANYWHERE else for FREE is a dumb move. Sorry, but I instantly feel for anyone ignorant enough who gives into this money-hungry scam. The scam isn’t even a strategically placed either, just right off the rip they BEG for your money.

THIS APP IS SO MONEY HUNGRY 🤑🙄
by goldfeeeeiiiiisshh! on 2020/08/06 19:06
They literally force you to pay for everything. First of all, it the app was great about 2-3 years ago. Now when you download it you have to buy a membership to read. I can’t find an x anywhere. You also have the pay for pictures. That is SO stupid. I think we can all agree on that. And the make you take numerous amounts of breaks. For numerous amount of minutes. You have to pay if you don’t want the breaks. This app needs to stop being to money hungry. It’s actually irritating. Don’t waste your time and money. 🚨 This is a warning 🚨do now download this app!
Boring
by Skee Yeet on 2020/08/06 02:11
The only thing I’m hooked on is deleted this app after I finish this. This used to be a good app now it’s just about money.
bull crap
by proffittttttt on 2020/08/05 15:44
this is complete bull crap that i cannot get into the app without paying i know that yes they need to make money but there are people who just want to watch some stories who don’t have enough money to pay for it like me so i suggest not getting this app because if you don’t have the money to pay $20 a month then you can forget it😒
k
by lipathy on 2020/08/05 03:27
why make the app free if we just have to play afterwards
Very terrible 👎
by natalie graces world on 2020/08/05 02:46
This game is just very bad! Here’s why.. So, when you go on the app it asks if you have membership, and it forces you to buy it! So basically, you have to buy it to play.. I don’t like this game!
Seriously
by landonparnell on 2020/08/05 01:23
I used to love the scary stories but now it’s stuck on premium screen
Horrible
by Puushiii on 2020/08/04 23:50
I can’t even get into the app I can only buy the premium thing this app is horrible to install.
Why is it even called free?
by rockstar2006829 on 2020/08/04 16:14
So I used to have this app a couple years ago. It was nice and the stories were actually pretty good and entertaining but after I stopped using it, I deleted it. I saw some adds now for it and decided to give it a try. When I download the app, it instantly asks me for premium. I can’t even “x” out, I can only press continue I do and it tries to compete a transaction. I cancel and see anything to do. I press that I already have an account and it says I don’t. Then I press log in and it doesn’t work. Every deleting it and redone loading doesn’t work. At this point I’m annoyed so I just delete it. I understand making money, but that’s not the way. Add more things with money. Make other things a little more expensive. But this is not the way.
It could be better...
by Gravesdawg on 2020/08/04 13:31
I totally love this game it’s so cool and I know you guys put a lot of work in to it but I could be better.. you shouldn’t have to pay to get a better game.. and you shouldn’t have to wait like 1 hour for a story and then in the middle of it you have to wait more. So there’s my review and thank you for making the game and it’s awesome! But like I said it could be better.
Premium Page
by Ashantilololoooool on 2020/08/04 07:42
I used to have the app and now they added more to it so I wanted a look. But when I first got the app I could not get past the premium page I looked for the X everywhere, maybe if I could try it out I would buy the premium.
I’m not paying $20/month for premium
by lagert on 2020/08/04 03:08
Y’all are out of your minds WHACK! I downloaded Hooked after seeing an advertisement for it. I enjoyed the stories and did not mind the ads. I deleted the app and redone loaded recently to save space in my phone. Now I can’t get into anything and there’s no way out of the Premium Screen. I get Netflix and Disney + combined for less a month than you’re asking for this. Don’t download, waste of time if you can’t even view the stories without paying $20/month. They're ok but not that plentiful, diverse or worth it.
Really.!!!
by laysha.v on 2020/08/04 00:27
I used to have this app a about 1 year ago and now it’s a total waist I re download it and I can even use it if you don’t have a subscription I don’t recommend
Forced Premoum option needs to go
by Gezrii on 2020/08/03 22:46
Whenever I try to use the app it asks if I want to try Premium which is fine, a lot of apps ask for that, however it doesn’t give you an option to exit out of it, so either you sign up for premium or you don’t get access to anything. Please fix this!
What a joke!
by Star Champion on 2020/08/03 21:20
I had this app a few years ago but I got bored so I deleted and now I saw all these adds and I’m not going to lie I wanted to see that cheesy Trevor and the virgin story. I was immediately disappointed to find out that you have to pay for it. I knew that on most stories you had to pay for extra things like pictures and/or voices but now u can even watch’s one thing without paying twenty dollars a month! Twenty dollars is a lot of money for a stupid app that isn’t even that good. I’m so disappointed! You put out all these adds and then you can’t even use the app what a joke!
Love it but now hate it
by Lobonegro300 on 2020/08/03 12:15
I used to read these awesome stories and it would be cool to re-read some or see if there’s new ones. But this came up if I wanted to pay to see the videos or photos. I used to like it when I didint see the photos and videos lol I’m just interested in the story. So please if you can put an X or something please do. Because I just wasted 10m of my Time here trying to enter this App.
You pay money
by bia and yaya fir the win on 2020/08/03 04:12
You have to pay like what hell no honey and it is just a app
It let me in last time
by the doggie girl511 on 2020/08/02 20:38
So I loved hooked it was so fun so a got it Again and do it said to pay then I saw put email so I put it in and kicked me out why?! So I guess I missed the update 😠😐
Why have to pay now
by Cassy and Paigey on 2020/08/02 20:04
You used to never have to pay, but you would have to wait a little, and not be able to watch every single thing, but the fact that you have to pay for everything now, is so annoying, just why did I you have to do this, just why 🤬
come on
by #IveSeenIt on 2020/08/02 14:29
i downloaded the app cuz i wanted to read the stories i saw the add and i'm like cool i wanna read it then i download the app and it asks me for premium or whatever and like i don't want it so i didn't pay for it then i cant get out of it like i tried signing up at the bottom now it just says i'm connected? bro like how do i get out of that screen help cuz i'm not gonna pay to read some people texting like come on be realistic
Are you serious!?
by Minniemouse1996 on 2020/08/02 08:26
I don’t remember this app being 20$ a month!? And if it was that’s ridiculous! I already used my 3 day trial but wanted to watch some of the shows I never finished. But I can’t even open it without having to pay for a 20$ subscription a month!? Goodbye..
1 star
by Aubrey😱 on 2020/08/02 00:46
I wish I could go on there and read stories without having a trial for it🙄
Makes no sense
by JT Hockey28 on 2020/07/31 19:26
I used to love this app. I used pretty much all day to be honest. I loved the stories, all the genres to choose from. Today I redownloaded the app to find out you have to pay to read?? Makes no sense.
Horrible
by ?Good.Or.Bad? on 2020/07/31 19:13
Too many ads
Scam
by theotherguy110 on 2020/07/31 01:24
it’s 25 dollars a month and it never showed me. I lost 30 dollars and found out it was this overpriced price of garbage.
Money problems
by chloe howarf on 2020/07/30 22:21
So I had this app awhile ago like some years ago and not everything was free but most was so you know a ad pop up on snApchat and I said oh I remember this then I download it I was sooo disappointed bc the only way you can watch movies is by paying money to me it looks like a rip off or scam but this is definitely not getting five stars
Tf
by balnp on 2020/07/30 20:58
You have to pay to get in, seriously
Why do I have to pay?
by User2255672 on 2020/07/30 18:01
This app is ridiculous. Why do we have to pay every month and I can’t even get into the app. Some people just want to read or watch what this app hast to offer but if it hat the sign up part. And if you don’t do it you will have to pay monthly. That is why I give this app a one star review.
I have to pay
by vontrecia on 2020/07/30 15:24
I have to pay for hooked and I use to have but know I have to pay and I don’t want to pay for it
Hi hooked

by audriforlife44 on 2020/07/29 21:41
All I won’t to do is whack something or read something scary but noooo it just says do I want premium and I don’t want it are u kidding me 😡😡
HAVE TO PAY!
by johns itunes dont erase on 2020/07/29 19:33
I had this game like 2-3 years ago and I would always love reading the scary stories. I had a idea to where me and my friend could read a story on here. We downloaded it again but you have to pay to read the storys! I’m so sad this is not free anymore
Dorian Filter
by jerisharp on 2020/07/29 16:40
I loved the story! Very clever and scary, as I have been known to use a filter on my own photos. I will definitely remember this story the next time I use a filtering app.
Not what it used to be.
by ThisRedBirdTho1⃣7⃣ on 2020/07/28 19:40
This app used to be amazing! The stories were interesting and definitely kept me up a few nights. Now the stories are so bland, ads are ridiculous and constant and premium? Seriously premium? Y’all are money hungry
Refuse to pay
by xoxobree on 2020/07/28 17:06
Can we read this without havin to pAy for it 🤦🏾‍♀️ . I really wanted to read these !
It’s Free And We Have To Pay?
by talon l on 2020/07/28 08:58
It literally says free! But nope we have to pay so just one star delete the app Apple or just make it free
This ain’t it chief
by lillypopppers on 2020/07/28 08:27
so I used to have this app but I uninstalled it for storage. I got it again and it’s really out here asking to pay for premium. Why u gotta be so obsessed with money that u gotta ruin a perfectly good app that used to be free.
I don’t like it
by ggfejdusj on 2020/07/28 04:18
I hate having to see that you have to pay for whole app I wouldn't recommend it to no one In my opinion you should let the app free and people would it
Es muy buena
by zzzzxvz on 2020/07/27 23:25
Muy buena
Should be free
by love it. it's a big help on 2020/07/27 19:06
I loved this app so much a while ago and I got a random urge to download again and read some stories. I’ve heard that they do videos now so I go exited. Until I realized that you have to pay 20 a month which i ridiculous I miss the old free app I’d rather just watch it on YouTube now.
Not working
by A horrible idea on 2020/07/27 16:54
I cannot get to the actual stories app is stuck on the three day free trial page
Forced to buy premium???
by Pikalulz on 2020/07/27 16:10
Why is it stuck on the screen to buy premium? I definitely don’t want that. Now I’m uninstalling.
Why just premium
by 3415159 this is pie on 2020/07/27 15:42
I loved this app many years ago and I wanted to be thrilled again to I downloaded hooked and as I opened the app it told me a had to pay premium to do anything so I tried to hit I already have access and it said that there wasn’t one so I deleted the app and and rote a review
Life of the party
by Ronicky1 on 2020/07/27 08:39
Great, adventurous and adrenaline rush. Enjoyed the outcome.
Just download Yarn
by babybabybabyaww on 2020/07/27 08:38
This app is so misleading a few years ago I had it then I had to delete it because of storage problems I tried re-downloading it and I HAVE TO PAY! I just wanted to go back to my favorite stories and re-read them but now I can’t so I go to Lure and Yarn. It’s the same type of app but free I was really looking forward to downloading this again but not I’m disappointed. Moral of the story is DONT DOWNLOAD THE APP
They just want money
by CATS RULE 101🐾🐾🌴 on 2020/07/27 07:15
This was the best app ever but then it now asks the pay $20.00 a month when I just open the app. You guys don’t care about us you just care about getting that money!
Hella Trash
by Daddy Anonymous💞 on 2020/07/27 03:55
This all is hella trash I got this all cause my friend was confused on why it won’t work. I got the app and opened in and it keeps on wanting me to get premium. Which ain’t gonna spend $20 for some stupid premium. (Rather eat a pigs ass than do that) I even cleared out the tab and all of my tabs to see if it would work but nope so if I were you don’t get this app!!💅🧚‍♀️✨
Can you seriously fix this?
by Asuna.Chan. on 2020/07/27 00:19
Payed for the 3 day trial, only got a 2 day trial, and took my iTunes money away from me without the full trial or a warning that money was being taken from me. Next thing you know it’s been 4 days later and now when I open hook I hear a “intense” sound and it stays on a black screen not working even if I were to restart my phone or anything. You really outdone yourself like can you please fix this on my account or refund me?
Freaking premium.
by gamingkid382 on 2020/07/26 08:41
Who wants to pay, for a FREAKING scary story for, four bucks a month? I can just go on YouTube and search, “scary stories” and BOOM no pay, just stories, who’s with me? You tube is way better than this dumb app.
Awful
by Joseph Rezan on 2020/07/25 23:05
When I watched your ad I said seems cool BUT when I downloaded it I had to buy prime? Are you serious who are you your just hungry for money could you just at least put it for free
🧐🤨???
by cuchinchis on 2020/07/25 20:33
Umm ok so I downloaded it because I love the ads and I finally got permission to download it and when I do it takes me straight to the hooked unlimited which I’m fine without so is there anything you guys can ek to change that it is both on hooked(this one) and hooked tv!
I’ve literally just downloaded the app and have a bad impression
by Paige Fears on 2020/07/25 15:51
I’ve wanted to see the scary stories I open the app and it automatically takes me to a page of subscriptions, there was no way to leave the page, not a X button not a cancel button or even a demo shown. To the people that are not willing to pay please don’t download. It’s only giving them more money, total ware if time.
$20 a month?
by Silver1108 on 2020/07/25 13:11
Like others I had this app a few years ago and yeah you had to wait a certain amount of time to read the rest of the story. I always chose horror so that got annoying quickly. Now it looks like it’s asking you upfront for $20 to even get access! I mean what? Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime is cheaper than that. It used to be that you at least had access to the limited stories for a limited amount of time but now you “gEt A 3 dAy FrEe TrIaL” before having to pay $20 a month?! I think it’s a scam and the advertisements show you there absolute best material
The ads are click baiting
by krazybossYT on 2020/07/24 16:23
When I was a kid I downloaded the app and thought the things were scary but the mic was only on for a limited time for the scary story’s and I had to use my money to get the mic on for a LIMITED TIME so I didn’t do it and I just had to get scammed, I’m lucky this app doesn’t costs any money, or I don’t remember it costing any money. The ads are getting worse by the time, don’t get clickbaited by the ads though
I CAN’T USE THE APP
by HarleyQuinnIs#1 on 2020/07/24 15:15
I played this when it first had came out then I ended up deleting it. It was fine before and now I have a new phone so I re-downloaded it because of the ads I saw on YouTube and when I got into the app, I can’t use it unless I buy premium. There’s no exit button I can tap so I can exit out of the premium page. It’s quite annoying, I don’t mind paying at least for 2 months but the fact that I can’t use the app without the premium is annoying. You should’ve just made the app cost money or something. This is the same thing for Hooked TV
Premium
by tik tak toe jkk on 2020/07/24 14:01
I don’t like how now you have to do the trile because you dint have to do it before so I’m just upset at that
Kk
by kiyalaynh on 2020/07/24 05:13
I hate you have to pay to even get on the app
Terrible
by Biancayeeeet on 2020/07/24 04:19
I used to have this app and it was a pretty good app so I decided to redownload it and it takes you to hooked premium but there’s no x button so you can’t do anything I was so disappointed this is such a terrible terrible app
Garbage it used to be free

Garbo
Down graded version.
by 𝚜𝚘𝚙𝚑𝚒𝚎♡︎ on 2020/07/23 23:47
When I used to have this app which was about 2-3 years ago it was free for the most part, or at least I never paid for anything. Anyway, since I’m quarantined I decided to download it again because I remembered how fun it used to be, once I got into the app it wanted me to pay for premium? Which I didn’t want that but I looked all around my screen to see no x button or cancel corner. I mean, from what I remembered it was text messages that were made into a creepy story, all kinds of them. And every 8-10 minutes of reading those messages it would make you take a 15 minute break in between readings. (Unless you paid) now, you can’t read anything with paying? Which I don’t think was a smart idea of this app to do in there recent updates, only because yes the stories were good but would I pay to read them? nah. i think they would have a lot more customers as well as better reviews on there app if it was the same as it used to be. If you weren’t forced to pay if would of sparked my attention 10 times more than it actually did. Overall, needs many many changes.
I would give it no stars
by djdjdkjsdjdj on 2020/07/23 19:57
I was excited to use it but u have to pay for it what a waste! -0 stars
They just want your money.
by lil al' on 2020/07/23 07:37
I downloaded this app for fun stories as it promised. However as soon as I loaded the app it ask me to buy a membership. I looked for the x sign but it wasn’t there. Basically the app was worthless to me unless I was willing to give them what they wanted. I mean to be honest of course they’d want money and sometimes would give u more abilities and perks by paying but this app didn’t let me use it at all. As of right now I’m sticking to Netflix
Stop Scary Ads
by playerroseprawn on 2020/07/23 07:33
I’m only here because your ad scared the hell out of my daughter. She was playing a normal children’s game when an ad for hooked pops up with a scary face on it. Please remove the scary pop up advertisement for parents and children’s sake!

It Won’t Let Me Open The Home Page...
by tfrccvttvrce on 2020/07/22 22:54
When I try to find the cancel button or press continue it won’t let me go to the home page. I can’t but anything, so yeah. But also it says “cannot connect to iTunes Store” even though I have iTunes... can you please add a X button or a cancel button? Thank you!
Doesn’t even deserve a one star
by Yoteslaye on 2020/07/22 22:02
I used to have this app a few years ago when it was just a chat story app that only had you pay to see images and read more stories daily. I enjoyed some of the stories back in the day and recently saw some ads for it, so I decided to redownload it. I opened the app to a screen that tells you to buy their absolute waste of money premium subscription that is a whopping $19.99 a month. As far as I could tell there was no way of exiting past the premium subscription screen without actually buying it. So if you were wanting to enjoy some stories for free avoid this garbage of an “free” app.
A SCAM
by Awesome game best evar on 2020/07/22 21:28
I have 3 complaints about this. 1. 3/6 years ago When I try too view the pictures it’s like 11$ like really. Why would I waste money for pictures i mean like just for pictures? Why the hell would I take that purchase? Just for my money. 2. Complaint is that I got premium but it would just exit the app for me! What a scam they just want your money I say do NOT BUY THIS APP🚫if you don’t want your money too be wasted then do not buy this app 🚫🙅🏼‍♀️ 3. So I tried too get the app again but then it would just log me out. I was in shock because it had scammed me before this is such a scam I said so don’t buy this.
My review on Hooked
by haroldstevens1234 on 2020/07/22 20:59
This app is very good the stories don’t have jump scares which is nice. It is very interesting and the stories make me wanna keep reading, I recommend downloading this app
Stop making us spend money
by apgoboom2008 on 2020/07/22 16:31
It’s ridiculous that you have to make us pay for premium in order to use the app! A couple of years ago you didn’t have to pay for premium in order to use the app. Just stop and let us use the app without premium!!
Why do I have to pay?
by Tough-Customer on 2020/07/22 03:43
I had the hooked app a few years back but deleted it. When I downloaded it in 2020 not only did I not see the stories because there was no x, but It says you have to pay a fee of $19.99 a month. So like any person would do I deleted the app then reinstalled it. When I go into it, it still said I have to pay a fee and there is not an x in sight. I don’t like that we have to pay for something that was free a few years ago. How many years do I have to wait before this app is free again?
I won’t let me in
by sdjv fi BF du has chg on 2020/07/22 01:08
Ok so I just downloaded the app and it won’t let me in the app it’s only on the premium page
Why should you have to pay to read
by pr3ttybraat on 2020/07/21 17:05
Reading is good for children and hooked has fascinated reading in making reading more interesting but when they get famous they want you to pay🙄
Please fix this glitch
by Endbreaker10 on 2020/07/21 16:33
So my friend recommended this to me so I installed it and the only I see it hooked premium and there is no x so I can’t use the app
ONLY PREMIUM
by Chanel Monique on 2020/07/21 06:58
I had this app when it initially became popular a few years ago and it was great but I kid you not each year or so I‘ll re-download it or decide to use it again; and each time the app becomes mo e restricted and the time I’d have to wait in between parts of stories became longer and longer. But now, you literally can’t read not one paragraph without paying for premium. Just wow
I just wanna watch

THIS IS FAR FROM A GOOD APP
by Jensisideedisisnej on 2020/07/21 03:41
You know from all the freaking ads I seen on this app they all advertised it like it was free I checked out hooked TV and guess what ??!! You gotta pay 19.99 a month for some knock off , off brand TV shows .. then I looked up this app thinking maybe it was free ?? I guessed very wrong this is BS . I can pay for Netflix , Hulu and amazon prime and get more for paying less , this app is a shame , in my personal opinion it shouldn’t even be on the App Store anymore but hey we all got opinions. Right ? Right . P.S sorry for the rant it just really ticked me off because the story’s didn’t look half bad .
Paying
by stupid freaking dinosaur on 2020/07/21 02:21

Terrible
by dolphin butt on 2020/07/20 20:11
There is literally no x button and it makes you pay 20 dollars. Not my kind of thing.
Couldn’t even do anything
by Mia.E.W on 2020/07/20 20:10
I just downloaded the app and I can’t even do anything!! As soon as I got on a premium trial came up but I didn’t want premium so I was just gonna skip it but I couldn’t.I was stuck on the free trial thing and couldn’t get out. I was really excited to get the app and start reading stories but I couldn’t I do not recommend!!!
No X button
by RobinAshido on 2020/07/20 18:42
THERE IS NO X BUTTON- I remember when I first played and you had the choice whether you wanted to pay or not. I guess the update changed that. Bad app. Can’t even play without paying.
Made you get premium!😤
by Tsrh0421 on 2020/07/20 18:06
I downloaded this app so I can read scary stories when I opened the app it would not let me go passed the premium so I can watch them for free (it’s 19.99 a month btw)
Gave do
by Un prof de français on 2020/07/20 15:41
This game is trash 🗑 it trash you cant listen to stories unless you pay 20.00 like what the hell
Why
by Flip_1 on 2020/07/20 15:25
I used to love this app until they made it where you HAVE to get premium, like ion want that!! I just wanna read some story’s and stuff. I ain’t paying $20 a month, that’s stupid.
Couldn’t get out of hooked premium
by Luca Rossette on 2020/07/20 02:22
I was pretty much forced to get. Hooked premium luckily I didn’t fall for it I had no choice to exit out of hooked premium so this is why I’m leaving them a one star review I hope this happens to no one else because this is bs fix this
Uh-
by Big T.S. on 2020/07/20 01:51
Sorry to bother but this isn’t really an issue. I downloaded your app a while ago and deleted it, but since Hooked got updated, there’s a new page that pops up when you download it. It explains why you should buy Hooked Premium, and I didn’t want to. I tried everything to get off that page, but it just wouldn’t work? What do I do to get off of it? I’m so sorry I’ve wasted your time! But please answer and thank you?
All I see is a Do YoU wAnT pReMuM screen
by yoloking1111 TTV on 2020/07/19 22:15
This is a big problem for an app that’s free and when you go into the “free” app it asks if you want pReMuM but there’s no exit to that screen... fix this or I will flag
Scam
by Baka18273 on 2020/07/19 22:00
I can’t even get into the app without paying for premium, I don’t mind that much to wait to read but when I can’t even get into the app without paying for something is ridiculous
Why just premium?¿?
by Ⓛ🅐ⓖ🅖Ⓨ_🅣Ⓐ🅕Ⓕ🅨 on 2020/07/19 21:24
Bruh I downloaded the app cuz I saw the “scary story” add.anyways I download the game cuz It sounded like something I would be into.so I open the game and it asks me for premium and I kept tapping the screen and waiting for an X to pop up but nothing happened.so creators of hooked if you are reading this STOP ASKING PEOPLE FOR PREMIUM!!!!!
Bruh
by rickejcj Ed wjxjejciwjxjjxjejf on 2020/07/19 21:07
Okay so.... I’ve had this app before I just deleted it once because my phone told me I had too much storage. So I recently just downloaded it and I tried to get to the stories part but it just keeps me on if I want premium or not which I do not but I don’t know how to get out so I wish I could give u a good rating but I can’t Bc I can’t even get in the app I hope this fixes bc I really just wanna read the stories idc about premium I don’t want it
What is this
by jesslanys on 2020/07/19 20:42

DUde rly😑
by kittie galaxy on 2020/07/19 20:33
So I saw an ad on this and thought it was cool so installed it and as soon as I get BAM premium (did I spell it right) and there was no x button no nothing just premium tried everything just yup you guessed it premium I really hope hooked fixes this horrible app
I like the old one better
by MrTopJimmy on 2020/07/19 19:13
The first time I downloaded this app and it asked if I wanted the premium. I was able to watch movies and stories but still had ads in the videos unless I bought the premium version. Fast forward to today and it’s like they are saying either I buy the premium or don’t use the app at all.
Why
by galexy fox animations on 2020/07/19 18:57
I can’t access the story’s and I don’t want to pay by I might want to delete pls someone tell me how to get in without paying
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.
Bro really
by flamer-man on 2020/05/22 00:42
Had the app 2-3 years ago and was super into it, would read its scary stories every night and there were very interesting ones but got rid of it when I got a new phone and was serious on not junking you my phone or storage. I see all the ads but I don’t consider re-downloading it because I already know how the story ends since I read it before. I downloaded it again because I wanted to re-read some stories I remember and see the new stories that look interesting. Bro.....I download it and instantly says do I wanna get premium.... I don’t see an x or no so I put continue and exit out to see if I can get out....nothing.....I then tap I already have a subscription and it says I don’t.....I am still stuck on the screen and I’m swiping everywhere. I can’t get out, it just shows this screen if I want premium and I really done because when I had it before I was fine with the way it was not being able to see pics, vids or audio so I don’t want premium BUT I also just wanna see the story and it’s not letting me. I delete it, re-download it and yea man it stills take me to if I want premium. I don’t, I can’t leave it so I can’t use the app so I really wish I can give it 5 stars but why will I do that if I can never get in the app😑. So yea I didn’t experience the app and I understand they need to make money but this right here ain’t it. Hopefully if gets fixed in the future. Until then I’m not changing my mind.
Total Scam If You Ask Me
by alyhof7579 on 2020/01/09 14:44
You could watch more of the shows from the app on ads than you can watch in the actual app without a subscription. I decided to download the app (again from 2 years ago, it looked like it had improved [it hadnt]) was forced to choose between romance and horror (okay whatever) chose romance and immediately it started playing Trevor and the Virgin (without my permission) WITHOUT A BACK BUTTON OR AN ESCAPE BUTTON and then not even FIFTEEN SECONDS pass and it says “you have to wait 5 minutes to resume the show or purchase the full version. Like what? How am I supposed to even know I want to watch the show in a 15 second blip? I have literally seen longer clips of the show from AN ADVERTISEMENT than I got to see on the actual app. They shouldn’t even waste their time making a “free” version at this point. Just tell people it costs money instead of making them so angry from the interruptions and lack of choice that they either delete the app or angrily purchase it. Terrible setup and I would not recommend to anyone. The only reason this app even has positive ratings is probably because the app said “give us a 5 star rating and we’ll remove your wait time for one time only.” Bologna if you ask me. This app actually got worse. At least I used to get to click through a minutes worth of texting before the ad popped up. Worst app in the history of apps. Don’t corner people, Hooked. It’s lame.
Don’t Waste Your Money
by Mari’s Phone on 2020/01/11 20:07
This review will be updated pending a response from customer support. The ads are so misleading. I got this app on a whim, watched a couple videos and realized it was stupid. The content is targeted towards an immature preteen audience and the plot lines of every story were annoyingly cliche and cringey. The app had very limited selection of content for each genre and only a few videos for each, the rest were all audio. Just get an actually interesting audiobook from the library for free people! So I deleted the app. Unbeknownst to me, I was automatically subscribed and was being charged EVERY WEEK. I happened to stumble upon the information in my settings just by chance. I don’t even splurge on a Netflix subscription, which is so much better and is way cheaper ($5 every week for an extremely limited selection of content aimed at a very specific audience?? And if I recall, the app still had ads on top of that. Get over yourselves developers.) I wish I’d gotten at least some kind of notification that I was being charged. Even Netflix has the courtesy to send out email reminders before a trial ends and a subscription renews so you can cancel if you don’t want to pay. I contacted costumer support and explained this, so I’ll remove this if they work with me. But as of right now I’m really annoyed I wasted money on nothing.
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.
Only Premium? No thanks.
by Lilthing101 on 2020/06/25 19:58
So I had this app on my phone about a year or two ago. I enjoyed reading different stories on it almost every day/night. I’m not into scary stories. So when I read all the non scary stories I and couldn’t find any new ones I decided to wait for more. I would periodically open the app to check for new stories. I couldn’t find any and after awhile I just deleted the app. I just got a new phone and saw an ad for “The Girl With Purple Hair”. It looked interesting so I went to redo load it. It just gave me the option for Premium. I couldn’t find a no or an “x” to get out of it. So I click continue. It’s saying that it won’t work because there’s not enough credit. So then I try the “I already have access” link. I do that and it says I don’t have a subscription. I try both options multiple times after deleting and re-downloading the app, to no avail. I understand that the developers of these apps need to make money. Especially to pay for new updates, and improvements. This whole Premium Only isn’t an improvement at all. Make us watch more video ads. Maybe one or two videos ads that last three minutes total before each new chapter or episode. Make us pay more to see videos and pictures. Don’t make us pay premium in order to experience the app.
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!
Only Hooked Premium
by A beginner Editor on 2020/05/17 02:22
I kept seeing this app pop up in my ads all the time. I had it a couple years ago but shortly got bored and deleted it. Until now, when i decided to download it again because it seemed like it had gotten better and more interesting than it was a couple years back. So, as soon as Hooked was done downloading i decided to open it and soon got faced with Hooked Premium. I wasn’t going to pay for premium so I was going to click the “X” button. But there wasn’t one. I waited a couple second to see if one would appear, but it didn’t. I tried swiping every way on the screen to get out of the promotion but it wouldn’t let me out of the screen. I decided to delete it and then download it again to see if it was just a glitch, but it wasn’t. To be honest I was very disappointed of what this app has become. In my opinion the app has gotten worse than what it had been some years ago. I get the app has to make money but i would appreciate it if it found better ways to. Anyways, I hope this issue gets fixed for others but ho are interested but I think for now I would rather read Webtoon, which is an app I would recommend.
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.
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
Down graded version.
by 𝚜𝚘𝚙𝚑𝚒𝚎♡︎ on 2020/07/23 23:47
When I used to have this app which was about 2-3 years ago it was free for the most part, or at least I never paid for anything. Anyway, since I’m quarantined I decided to download it again because I remembered how fun it used to be, once I got into the app it wanted me to pay for premium? Which I didn’t want that but I looked all around my screen to see no x button or cancel corner. I mean, from what I remembered it was text messages that were made into a creepy story, all kinds of them. And every 8-10 minutes of reading those messages it would make you take a 15 minute break in between readings. (Unless you paid) now, you can’t read anything with paying? Which I don’t think was a smart idea of this app to do in there recent updates, only because yes the stories were good but would I pay to read them? nah. i think they would have a lot more customers as well as better reviews on there app if it was the same as it used to be. If you weren’t forced to pay if would of sparked my attention 10 times more than it actually did. Overall, needs many many changes.
It could be more organized
by Kenny8302 on 2020/03/06 04:12
I like the stories and videos and all, they’re very good, but I wish that there were categories for things. Like if I’m looking for a horror story for example, I have to go to the search to search for a horror story. I think that it would be easier if there were categories because then you wouldn’t have to search for a horror story. And some people don’t know what the names of the stories are so they’re just looking up random stories without any specific story to look for. There could be categories for horror, romance, mystery, comedy, etc. ALSO, I wish that there was a summary for each story/video because I want to know what the story is going to be about before I actually start reading it. It used to be like this, with the categories and summaries for each story and it was great, but for some reason the developers got rid of all of this. I just think that these things would make it easier to find the stories that people would be interested in reading.
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
Help me out
by Madison likes games on 2020/07/07 00:05
I had this app for a little while but then deleted it because I never used it and I needed to free up storage. Today, I decided, “hey, this app was great and has great stories, I’ll get it again”. Then app downloads and I go to it and it asks if I want premium. Since I’m a teenager, I don’t have a credit or debit card, or a gift card but there is no x button to get me out of it. So, I go to get the free trial so that I can use it, but it said I need payment. I try the “I already have access” button, but it says “no account found or something”. LET ME X OUT OF THIS SCREEN! I had this app before but there was always an x button there. Please fix this I want to use this app. I’m not spending 20 dollars a month on an app. If you guy want us to pay premium, that’s fine, but don’t force us to. This app is free but having to pay 20 bucks a month just to use it! You might as well make this app cost money. I’d rate it higher if you fix this. Other people also have this problem. You shouldn’t have to pay premium to be able to use this app. I’m done ranting. Fix this.
Can’t handle it!
by annoyed custermer on 2020/01/12 20:42
I can’t do this anymore I have to wait 15 minutes just to read a page ,I download this app so I can watch videos and read more(btw there are some tea that needs to be spelt in some stores) but I can’t spill the tea if I have to wait extra 15 minutes just to read a page who ever made this app knows what there doing there just trying to get money by spamming people, the app is annoying, the first Time I got on it I was happy but then the cash was keep popping up so I got annoyed and frustrated bc I couldn’t read even ONE page and that’s not a lot. This app is basically spamming you for your money and it’s wasting your time. I get that the owner(wants)needs money but if they keep doing the time like that then there not going to get any typ of money because people are going to get annoyed with the app and there not going to pay because of the owner wanted money then he/she could have asked for money from the beginning to end instead of popping up on the screen and having to wait and extra 15 minutes just to read a page 🙄😤
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.
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!
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!
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)
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.
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.
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.
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. :)
Why pay monthly???
by _-Crystal-_ on 2020/01/02 23:28
The reason why I rated 3 stars is the fact the stories and shows are good but the fact that you have pay monthly just so that you can fully understand what story/show is about is totally inconvenient like why do you have to wait for more than five minutes while watching a show just because you didn’t pay for the full version? And I know and understand that you guys work hard and need some money to keep going but can’t you make money just from people buying new stories and shows instead of making them pay monthly for interesting clips and story parts. You’ll also need to understand that not everybody can afford to pay or is not being allowed to pay by their parent/guardian. I would really like to leave a good 4-5 star rating but only when the app is suitable for everyone to watch ( money- wise)
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!
Waste of Your Time
by Bruhhh_3827449 on 2020/04/25 19:39
Don’t be fooled by the amount of ads you get about this app through others. The many ads are used to draw in your curiosity. Though nothing about this app is worth your attention As soon as you install and open the app, you are immediately granted a subscription option. If you chose to decline the subscription, as any smart person would. They give you two choices of genre, Horror or Romance. Whichever choice you pick immediately brings you into a story that you cannot exit out of without being bombarded with the same subscription option. On top of this, you are granted no more than 10-15 seconds of the story. Until they force you to wait 5 minutes to explore more parts. The only way you can avoid these pauses are again, through their purchase option. I really want you to know. This app isn’t worth an ounce of your money. The “free-trial” story options they give. Are incredibly lackluster and the acting portrayed is indeed terrible. Specifically with their big ad feature, “Trevor and the Virgin.” Paying money for a cheesy, watered-down teen drama when you could literally just read better versions of this written by more talented people ANYWHERE else for FREE is a dumb move. Sorry, but I instantly feel for anyone ignorant enough who gives into this money-hungry scam. The scam isn’t even a strategically placed either, just right off the rip they BEG for your money. A definite shame.
