Although the app is free to download and some of the stories don't require money to be spent, a LOT of the stories especially the featured ones with the E in the corner make it so that you only have two options, but the better options have a paywall that requires 18-25 "Diamonds" which are used as basically in-game currency bought through micro transactions. To get these Diamonds you have to spend money each time you want a bundle. It starts as low as $.99 to get 10 diamonds, but this bundle is also the last option which often misleads consumers in thinking the $1.99 is the cheapest which gives 22 diamonds with the sale although normally 20 diamonds. It then costs more money to buy bigger bundles going up to $99.99 to get 1500 diamonds. Basically the app has you buy inexpensive bundles multiple times which adds up quickly or spend a ton of money once to get a few more diamonds. Most of the stories also have mature themes in them including gangs, parties, drugs, gun violence, illegal relations (student-teacher), and more. While all of these stories are tagged with a mature rating, children are still able to read them with no problem. The worst stories are definitely the promotional ones like Pitch Perfect and Mean Girls as they pretty much force you to use 25 diamonds for EVERY option or choose the bad/not so good option which will make children disappointed when they have to choose it because they don't have enough diamonds. "Choose Your Story" more like "Pay Your Story".
The stories are good, but the system is bad and a rip-off.
Inappropriate Stories include but are not limited to:
My Teacher, My Gangster (Official Episode) $$$- includes gang violence and illegal activities
The Teacher - includes the option to romanticize with a young teacher playing up the hot teacher cliche.
I Married A Prince (Official Episode) $$$ - includes gun violence, blackmail, arranged marriage, sexual content, suicide
Pregnant by a Killer - drinking, gangs, sex with a criminal, romanticizes rape, involves choosing a parent to kill (I'm not joking), runaway teen, and much more.
Pregnant by My Student - again inappropriate relations, YOU are the teacher who has sex with a male student, also includes the option to abort child, continue to have relations with student
And there are many more. While they aren't bad reads, they are still inappropriate for children. Most stories on the app are like this. They are ok for adults but terrible for children.
