Best Chat Fiction Apps


EVER HEARD OF CHAT FICTION APPS? NO? WELL THEN YOU’RE PROBABLY NOT A TEENAGER. BUT IF YOU’VE EVER PERUSED THE BOOKS SECTIONS
ON ITUNES YOU MAY HAVE NOTICED THAT THERE ARE SOME APPS DOMINATING THE CHARTS THAT DON’T
LOOK LIKE TRADITIONAL BOOKS. YOUNG PEOPLE ARE READING STORIES THAT LOOK
MORE LIKE TEXTS. AND THEY’RE PAYING FOR THEM! POSSIBLY THE MOST WELL KNOWN OF THE BUNCH
IS CALLED HOOKED, WHICH LAUNCHED IN 2015. IT NOT ONLY DOES WELL ON THE BOOKS CHARTS
BUT LAST I CHECKED IT WAS IN THE TOP 40 OF ALL FREE APPS ON ITUNES — THAT INCLUDES ALL
CATEGORIES. FROM COMEDY TO HORROR STORIES, THE FORMAT
IS ALWAYS THE SAME: THEY ALL ARE PRESENTED AS SCROLLING TEXT MESSAGES. WITH HOOKED, SOME ARE FREE, BUT MANY USERS
ARE PAYING $2.99 PER WEEK FOR THE FULL EXPERIENCE OR $39.99 PER YEAR. HOOKED ALSO LETS YOU CREATE YOUR OWN STORIES
WITH YOUR FRIENDS. YARN HAS SURPASSED HOOKED AS THE MOST POPULAR
CHAT APP ON ITUNES. AND IT WORKS QUITE SIMILARLY. AND COSTS EXACTLY THE SAME. THEY MARKET THEMSELVES AS AN APP FOR READING
HYPOTHETICAL CONVERSATIONS WITH YOUR FAVORITE CELEBS OR RELATABLE EXPERIENCES LIKE A FRANTIC
GROUP CHAT AFTER LIKING YOUR EX’S INSTAGRAM POST. THEY ALSO HAVE A TRUTH OR DARE SECTION SERIES
AND JOKES ABOUT EVERYONE’S FAVORITE PERSONAL ASSISTANT, SIRI. BOTH YARN AND HOOKED ARE MORE POPULAR THAN
THE KINDLE THESE DAYS, IF THE APP STORE RANKING IS AN INDICATION OF ANYTHING! SOCIAL PUBLISHING PLATFORM WATTPAD DECIDED
TO GET IN ON THE ACTION BY RELEASING THEIR OWN CHAT APP, TAP, EARLIER THIS YEAR. IT IS THE SAME CONCEPT AS HOOKED AND YARN
AND ALSO COSTS $2.99 A WEEK OR $39.99 PER YEAR FOR THE FULL EDITIONS. HEY IF THE BUSINESS AIN’T BROKE…DON’T
FIX IT! FROM ROMANCE TO CRIME STORIES, TAP MAKES IT
EASY TO SEE WHAT’S TRENDING AND TELLS YOU HOW MANY PEOPLE ARE SCROLLING THROUGH IT. YOU CAN ALSO WRITE YOUR OWN STORIES AND SHARE
THEM WITH YOUR FRIENDS. AND TO THINK, WE USED TO READ PAPER BOUND
BOOKS!

  1. these are basically chat apps for losers who have no friends to chat but want the experience of having friends to chat with without actually chatting

  2. I know I've seen games like this, but now as stories without reader interactivity? Wow. Interesting, but I'll stick to webcomics.

    (starts thinking about "Shen" who in my opinion is the cutest webcomic author when it comes to the way he draws himself)

  3. Seems like the future of business is figuring out dumb needs, and then sweating against smart competitors.

  4. Glitterbug chat stories is slick chat fiction app with original storied written by Glitterbug writers.
    The stories are aimed at adults and deal with themes such as drama, thrillers, psychological stories, romance and mild erotica as well as comedy.
