Ok this is my first thread on this forum.
First of all Hi
I have been a reader on Episode app for along time like 4years. I know some of you have been reading n writing stories before that so I wholeheartedly appreciate that & would like to say Thank U
But as I read stories here I have noticed certain stuffs which either Devs don’t wanna address or have turned a blind eye. Some of these are:
-Some might not see it as a big issue but I will be seriously annoyed if I read 130some chapter n then see the story is unfinished. And by Unfinished I mean the author haven’t uploaded any new chapter in months now. So I think Devs should either make a tag saying these stories are discontinued or unfinished or simply should remove it.
2)No feedback or Rating System
-I have said this on multiple threads now n this is like a demand atleast from my side. I think there should be a rating system for the stories where readers should be asked to give a genuine feedback n how they gonna rate the said chapter. What it will do is -
a) it will help authors to find potential plothole if they forgot any
b) it will help readers select a story on the basis of that rating/feedback.
Think it like Amazon where most of the buyers first sees the review then specifications of a certain product.
3)Reader-Author Interaction Platform
-I think it’s a must. Say at the end of the story, if there’s a interaction with author n reader, I think it will help authors to grow. I mean authors can ask readers to submit there questions on the said platform and at the end of the story, he/she answers some of them if not all. It will help authors bond with there fans in my opinion. Especially since fanmail is now gone from Android.
-I think there has been lotsa threads made on this issue so I won’t go in deep but there should be an option for readers to earn gems by watching ads. I mean other apps have this feature so why not implemented in this one. If one can even earn 4gems watching ads daily I believe they will be happy to spend Gems on various stories.
-Ok I know there are some very good stories in ink n classic format. And most of the readers now have been accustomed to Limelight format. So why not changing those stories into Limelight version
I mean alot of readers including me when sees a story in ink or classic they immediately stop reading it even though it’s in recommendation. If it can’t be changed then how bout making a different sections for old classic n ink stories😳
I think these are some of my suggestion which Devs should think about. Its a great app n I think they can make it better if they can implement this on the app.
