Books Social Networking
This version of the app is not recommended   
Current Version (141)
All time (58109)
App last updated Nov 15, 2017
New in version 3.5.4

owl: darkness is coming
owl: run quick to the light
owl: shadows are growing
owl: prepare for a fright


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!??

How could they do this?

By taking such a feature, you are going to lose multiple users, and possibly be hated more(actually not possibly), so I don’t see why you have to take off free writing hooks. It’s completely idiotic.
Dwaun I like
dwaun dc on 11/18/2017
Love it

I quite dislike how u need to pay to read, or wait. It should be every story u read, then u wait a day. Makes it easier. Otherwise, I love it.
Frate trine on 11/18/2017
Good app but wish you could have unlimited hoots.But over all good app!
Why does it make you wait?
mommaerin on 11/18/2017
Why the ???? Does it make you wait 30 minutes to keep reading. AND BRING BACK STORY WRITING
StagBT on 11/18/2017
In problems so far hope this is a good app
Bye, stories
sandra1965 on 11/18/2017
I used to enjoy this app, honestly. However, I just went back in to reread everything I wrote months ago. It told me to go a website and enter a code with my gmail. I put in my gmail and typed in the ONLY NUMBER ON MY SCREEN that was below the gmail on the directions. But oh man, that didn’t work. Now all of my stories are going to be deleted because I can’t find any code. I checked my gmail and everything! Thanks a lot.
mayasass on 11/18/2017
First of all, this is a cash grab. You can't see any images without paying for a subscription. It's dumb. Second of all, you get "taps." Once you run out of taps you have to wait half an hour. This is a waste of my time and I recommend to not get this app. But maybe if the creators of this app fixed this they would get a much more better viewpoint from me.

The stories are interesting. But if the story has a picture in it, you have to pay to see it, and after getting to the good part of the story, you have to pay to continue reading or wait a half hour.
Gigi6103 on 11/18/2017
This is an awesome why to spend your extra time
Bad app
CorkScrewGnome on 11/18/2017
You require a subscription just to view pictures which is just bad
Awesome game!
mackenzie duncan on 11/18/2017
I recently downloaded this game and it was so much better than any other game I played.
Awesomest game ever
musicgu on 11/18/2017
I loved this app right as I got it I loved the scary stories.
I used to like it
NYANGIRLBOSS on 11/17/2017
I used to like it until I found out you have to pay. I’m not in the mood for paying real money to see pics in this app. Hooked=ur money 💸🗑⏳⌛️💡🔦🕯📲💻
👍🏼or 👎🏼 on 11/17/2017
The app is ok but it is kind of stupid how you have to pay for photos during the chat and how you have to wait 30 minutes to do any other story. The story's are good but the fact you have to wait ruins that. But overall the app is ok.
Yana bear boo on 11/17/2017
I am SO and I mean VERY angry that they took away the only thing people really were interested in when getting this app! BEING ABLE TO WRITE YOUR OWN STORY! Sure reading story’s are great and all, but that give you a short time limit then you have to wait 30 mins to continue. But the main reason I’m writing this terrible review is the FACT they took away the ability to write your own story! DO NOT GET! I REPEAT DO NOT GET! It’s very disappointing.
Not worth $15 subs!
roseofsharon1980 on 11/17/2017
I love this app! I really do, but this app is not worth a $15 subscription at all! That’s way too expensive for just a text storytelling app! I would subscribe to it if it was $3 or $4 a month subscription instead because not all of the stories are that great, tho a majority of them are really good and keep you hooked—literally! I’ll give this app a 5 star rating when the price of the subscription goes down or their are more incentives in having this app is added in the near further!
curlyhead_Myra01234 on 11/17/2017
This is so cool and scary and I love getting scared
FU_Steve🖕🏿 on 11/17/2017
This app is rlly good but I hate the fact that you have to wait 30 unnecessary minutes. This game tests my patience so I might delete this app in a week.
wah sah dude on 11/16/2017
I love this. It keeps me interested all the time. I just wish you didn’t have to wait 30:00 minutes or buy unlimited. Please fix that. 👍🙏🤳
Gabigirls on 11/16/2017
The story’s are interesting, don’t get me wrong but to see the pictures, you have to sign up, and to listen to the audio too. Really upsets me,
do not download
Aloine93 on 11/16/2017
you have to spend money to read longer than one minute and thirty seconds. you cannot even view the photos without having to pay 15 dollars – which is too much. this is just a way to gain money and guess what – this app won't be getting 15 bucks from me just to read campfire stories.
Free version unusable!!
Snap-a on 11/16/2017
With the free version your get to read for about a minute before they try to sell you an over priced subscription or you have to wait half an hour just to continue reading. I like the idea of the app but there is no way I can use the free version like this, it's horrible.
Hooked but....
OG JadaLee on 11/16/2017
I’ve been seeing these text stories on FB for a while now and kept debating on whether or not to download the app. Well upon downloading it I was slightly disappointed that I had to purchase a subscription in order to read the stories or see the pictures that accompany some stories. It’s slightly irritating to have to wait 30 minutes to finish reading once you get to a certain point in the story.
Morgan 116 on 11/16/2017
This app is the best! I love the scary stories and decided to give the romance a try and I love it! Best app to pass time!
lel2007 on 11/16/2017
It is the most coolest and scariest game they give you what they say there going to give you it so awesome you should try it out
boii3322 on 11/16/2017
The only thing I don’t like about it is when it tells you to stop reading and buy something but overall it’s very spooky and a jawbreaker
nae jones on 11/15/2017
This is really good .. the long minutes to wait on the next episode is worth it 👍🏽
It's nice
arayallday5 on 11/15/2017
The only thing I don't like is u have to pay for the 7-day free trial but otherwise it's AWESOME
DANE LUV on 11/15/2017
Okay so every time I go to read I story that I have started it starts me ALL OVER and I keep having to tap through the parts I’ve already read and then it says, “out of hoots” freaking fix it! It is so annoying and I hate it.😒
Where is she?!
Forget you it's not impossible on 11/15/2017
Just finished where is she?! Very good... I love this app!
Skylight lover on 11/15/2017
I don’t know I just downloaded it and it takes forever to freakin open
Stealing my money
Kmrigle299747 on 11/15/2017
Somehow and some way it started taking(2) 2.99 for a 7 day subscription out of my account! How does that even work when I have 1 app??? I didn’t sign up for any subscriptions... come to notice this 10 months later that they’ve been charging me this WEEKLY! What a f’in scam.
I hate this update
HhghhhhhgfkikaAvgnakdoknn on 11/14/2017
I loved making stories but when I tried to export them they wouldn’t even export so i try updating which just leads to crashing P.S. i just want to have and write stories
OhFlowers on 11/14/2017
Found this game through TapJoy to download and play for a reward. It's a SCAM and now I see why after looking at what these lazy developers put together lolz #sad
Gxibjfvh on 11/14/2017
I love this app! I'm Hooked🤗
Thank you
Tiffanynicolejones on 11/14/2017
I love scary
Emily L❤️ on 11/14/2017
I love this app,but im having trouble trying to figure out how to make stories. I had this app a while ago (the old version) but ever since i got it again i cant find where to create a story :( Help!
Momojr246 on 11/14/2017
Love the app, the stories are interesting to read my only problem is that I wish you don't have to pay to see the pictures
Hooked! (I know cliché)
Beautiful21 on 11/14/2017
So I’m hooked lol stories are good!
I love it!😻😻😻😻😻
twrock on 11/14/2017
I would highly recommend it to anyone that loves stories or anyone is on there phone a lot.
Total iap monster
insainlewey on 11/14/2017
I can't make stories anymore so I have no use for HOOKED
LOLZIAN Tech on 11/13/2017
I really only used HOOKED because I wanted to try to make stories for fun, unfortunately I have no use for this app anymore and I have uninstalled it. Would not recommend to those who wanted to use the writing stories part of HOOKED mainly, even if most people would never see them.
Love the app but...
linn💯 on 11/13/2017
This is a great app love being able to read stuff that actually gets my attention but I hate how u have to pay just to see a picture
Cool down very frustrating
Mr3ms on 11/13/2017
A little under half way through each story it seems like. It's gives a very frustrating cool down on the reading. You have to wait another 30 minutes to begin reading the story again.
Peyton Brewer on 11/13/2017
This app is annoying because .1. You have to pay to see pictures .2. Have to wait 30 freakin minutes after like 20 taps .3. And you have to pay to make a story of your own. Eventually if you make everyone pay for everything then there just gonna say screw it and delete the app. This app needs work. Please read this and take my suggestions.
8princess38 on 11/13/2017
I wish I could give it 0 stars because you failed!!! Hooked used to be a great app till you had all these terrible updates. For example: not being able to find certain stories anymore or not posting inappropriate stories because those were the best ones and TAKING AWAY THE WRITING TOOL. That went too far and I’m deleting hooked. Nobody get this app, it’s trash. If you want customers and good ratings then FIX THIS APP TO BE THE GREATNESS IT ONCE WAS. may I add the subscription! Ridiculous. People are reading this, I’d like to tell you there was a time hooked from free with no hoots and stories were good and the app was good and you could write stories. PS Netflix is 8$ and this stupid app is 15$. Hooked please go back to how it use to be. For your own ratings and this app. And does anybody know any other apps like this but not crappy???
Really entertaining but...
snazzbug on 11/13/2017
Hooked is a great app and i really recommend it. The only problem is that they make you wait half an hour to keep reading. It happens when you're in the middle of a story and it's SOOOO annoying!!
Not bad
NMHeartbreak on 11/13/2017
Honestly, I don’t think this app deserves the ludicrous amount of 15$ a month, but it is something that if you have a little bit of time and you want to get sucked into a creepy story, then it’s not that bad. Sadly you don’t get much reading time, however if you have a few minutes to read, and you don’t mind coming back to it in half an hour, then It might be an app you enjoy.
