Every HOOKED story is told as a bite-sized text message conversation, as if you were reading someone else's chat history.
 We love reading, just like you, but we know it can get BORING when stories are too long. So we created this app to make reading snappy, spooky and fun.

 Drawing on the long tradition of epistolary literature, like Bram Stoker's Dracula, HOOKED stories unfold through back-and-forth conversations.

 If you can't get enough of books like Hunger Games, Divergent, The Fault In Our Stars and Harry Potter. Or if you're a fan of fanfic, like stories about One Direction. Or if you just can't put your Kindle down at night. You will love HOOKED. And even if you're not a big reader, but you love Snapchat, you should give HOOKED a try!

  • Good but annoying

    By MiniWinner7
    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.
  • Won’t work

    By tecuppigsrlife
    I love this app and I think it is very fun...when it works. When I open the app it goes to a white screen and loads and loads and loads forever. It never stops loading. I have only got it to work one time but when it worked it was super fun.
  • Disappointing and Sad

    By Alysondra
    I have a lot of issues with this app. I was looking for a new writing platform in the App Store and ended up finding this. One of the first reviews said that you can no longer write, so I was out of luck there. However, I have seen the app around and had to give it a try. Worst. Idea. Ever. Side note, writing needs to be brought back. At least have a section in the app for community writers. For the stories, I hardly read one before I was told that I have to either buy a subscription or wait about 15 min to continue. I literally read like maybe 30 messages before being restricted. Very, very short messages. So basically the reading experience isn’t fun unless you have a subscription… A $15 PER MONTH SUBSCRIPTION!!! Yeah, some people have BILLS TO PAY soooo… no amigo. Completely ruins the experience, if you ask me. As for the app itself, it’s honestly so disappointing it looks like it was made by an amateur. Not worth its #3 ranking at all. The help center isn’t helpful and the app itself has an ugly design. It’s very difficult to navigate and has no instructions or tutorial. For an app called Hooked, I sure did drop it fast. This whole thing seems like a joke, it’s so bad. If there was a writing tool, this would definitely improve the quality of the app. However, it is simply something that would probably be a three star with a subscription. But from my short, fifteen minute experience with this abomination, I’m going to give it one star… as a participation award. If you would like to have an app with simpler navigation, more stories, a writing tool, a large and interactive community, and a lot of resources for assistance, try Wattpad. It is an amazing app and I’ve had it for two years now. No advertisement, just helping out whoever stumbles across this brutally honest review. Some people who have written on there have gotten their books published and sold in stores. It’s an amazing platform.
  • Good app

    By Hello1239583
    It feels like I finally have a friend! Take that dad you douche lol what do you think of me now?!?
  • To pricey

    By #Anime$NetflixAddict
    The app is great don’t get me wrong there but they make it to expensive. All you do is read text messages and see images and you have to pay that much. Well not me. But it’s a nice app.
