You don’t necessarily have to sign up for the app, unless you want to contribute or make your own stories. Tap is the new variant to the already existing parent app known as “Wattpad“. The app has more than 45 million active users with about 250 million stories on board.
With the introduction of Tap , Wattpad is moving away from its traditional mode of storytelling to something more unique. Only time will tell if it is going to a hit or a miss, as shifting to a new platform can be in the trend for a short while and later die out. The biggest example could be PokemonGo and Prisma.
You can sign up using your email address or your phone number. On entering your credentials, you will receive a code which you will have to enter as a step of verification. Post this step you can access all the content on the app easily. A limited number of features are available to users who install the app for free, while exclusive content can be accessed by those who get the paid version of the app.
Tap is one a kind and is perhaps the first of its model in the market. The service costs $2.99 per week, $7.99 per month, or $39.99 per year.
The concept behind this mode of reading lies in the form of tapping the screen to reveal the next scenario. It builds up a kind curiosity that you experience in the movies. The stories are curated in such a way that, they belong to a conversation between 2 or more characters. It is not a third person narrative.
The “Home” page on the app, shows the various trending stories that one can pick up to read. They are arranged in the form of tiles and often have high quality images as a cover to the stories. This is majorly to attract users to open that particular story and read.
The stories are categorized under different tags or genres. You can view these by swiping from left on your home page of your app.
The app allows you to add in your creativity too, by contributing to the existing stories. This provides a new twist to the stories, with creativity coming all corners of the world. Like they say, Many heads, Many minds!
Now if you feel even more creative and want to hone your skills, you can even take up the initiative of writing your own story and lay it out to the masses to read, compliment and criticize as well. Although this feature is limited to only a subset of writers on the platform. The company says that the writing and publishing functionality will roll out more broadly in the weeks ahead.
You can view all the stories that you are reading, along with the stories that you have completed under the “My Profile” tab. You can add your personal details and even upload a picture from your camera roll as your profile picture.
Tap app Review:
Tap’s perspective is its inquisitive take on the chat-style format. Instead of just getting snippets of the story with each tap, it feels like one has gotten a hold of someone else’s phone and are reading through their personal texts. That could appeal to teenage or young adult users, who spend a lot of time interacting with content on their mobile devices – a place that’s also where much of their social lives today unfold.
So to sum up this application, here is how the company itself describes it:
- TAP to reveal the story as you go
- DISCOVER stories for any mood – spine-chilling horror, steamy romances, nail-biting dramas and more.
- WRITE your own chat stories
- SHARE your favs with your friends
