HOOKED lets you read amazing chat stories FREE. These are gripping, edge-of-your seat thrillers that will keep you reading for hours. Or, write your own story and get lots of fans!

Every HOOKED story is told as a bite-sized text message conversation, as if you were reading someone else's chat history.

HOOKED also lets you create your own chat stories from your iPhone. Share stories from your life, funny texts or creepy crawly conversations from your worst nightmares. HOOKED is your very own chat diary, for the world to read!

With Hooked's Fantasy Chat feature, you can even write stories WITH your friends! Choose a prompt, create your character, and invite your friends to play along with you. It's like improv on chat!

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!

Ffffghffssgbfdxgfddgvf on 7/21/2017
Apple shouldn't allow stupid and click bait stuff like this to be put in the App Store

Coleton08 on 7/21/2017
This app is great! I got confused at the beginning, but I figured it out!
Chloee Hachman on 7/21/2017
I think the title just explain it all I love it so so so much
Don't get unless you're willing to pay
Allurnicknamesbelongstous on 7/21/2017
Seriously misleading app. Advertised as "free" but you can't even get through the first story without having to wait 30 minutes halfway through, or paying $3 a week or $40 bucks for the year. And you have to pay to see pictures in the stories. Save your money and go find the same thing online for free
It's okay
Baby__tayy on 7/21/2017
It said free but isn't free
Nice 👍
Alycat625 on 7/21/2017
I like the cool horror text 👻👩🏻‍💻📱⌨️

Love it I'm HOOKED!!
Frenchfrychibi on 7/21/2017
You have to pay to see pictures on stories, and they ask you almost every time to pay a subscription fee to get unlimited passes. The money problem is my only problem with it.
tenniell on 7/21/2017
Just what I needed. 😵😱😭🤔🤧🤗😍

ffjhvh on 7/21/2017
The stories aren't as good as I thought and it's very Annoying when u have to wait 40 minutes to read the rest of the story 😑
Bluechristian12 on 7/21/2017
It is great
It's ok
Morgaine816 on 7/21/2017
I like the stories but everything costs money.
Love the app but
coco885 on 7/21/2017
I wish all the story's had voice over
Paying For Reading??
Jennie chase343 on 7/21/2017
Its great but right whenever you start reading you have to wait about 30 mins for your reading limit?!? And once you run out if hoots you have to wait another 30 minutes !Then a message comes up saying you should pay for it ... i dont understand!!? but overall the stories are great but the quality deserves 1 star!!
Your an awesome game
dazhiqiu on 7/21/2017
I love ❤️ this game because it's like you can hear 👂 awesome 👏 story's it's just scary and sweet and cool 😎 I bet your super popular and I like it so much so thank you 😊 very much this game means so much to me I ❤️ this game so much so just to say again thank you very much!😘😍
raptorslasher1728 on 7/21/2017
I really love the game but do you need to be so greedy bc 3$ a week may not sound bad but it is I can buy so many more worth it stuff than this so lower the prices a bit or make special offer for a limited time I bet I will make this app more more fun.
OK but not the best
@SerAton.epi on 7/21/2017
It's really annoying to pay to see the pictures and the hoots easily run out.... honestly I think it's similar to choices or episode

Dman199053472538 on 7/21/2017
Great for kids
Need more opportunities as free user
Mozert407 on 7/21/2017
Nice but u should have free stories that don't need time to wait for
Wish you didn't have to pay
Jhall43050 on 7/21/2017
Would be great app if you could just read without paying. I could understand watching adds for earning hoots but not paying for them.
I'm paying for what
Ballindude710 on 7/21/2017
This app really wants me to pay to read scary stories and whatnot when I can find some on the internet for free. And it's ridiculously priced. Can't even make it past the first story without running out of hoots. Wish these ads would stop coming up on my YouTube.
Eemogi😛 on 7/20/2017
It's a great app download it.It leaves you in cliff hangers
You have to pay if you want to use the app for more than 2 minutes.
Kathoderr on 7/20/2017
Unless you want to wait 40 minutes to read every 2 minutes.
Jamalenaliusaranakan on 7/20/2017
The click bait of the AppStore
jdogplaying8 on 7/20/2017
This app is super good I'm really interested in it makes my day and plus if my day was ok it would be great because of this app😉😉😉
Good god.........
Ultrabadnik on 7/20/2017
I should have known that this was a scam to have us Lose our money by the second. DONT get this app it's just another waste of time from the corporate fuckheads that want nothing more than the dough in your pockets.
rleon1114 on 7/20/2017
This game deserves to have a one star because this also includes bad language and show viral photos of people that can contain violence and blood. I'm uninstalling the app and I'm not going to install it again, this will deserve a dislike. No one in the world likes horror stuff that can end up in violence movies, and can also kill somebody if they so chose to. I saw a bad language and I really don't appreciate that type of behavior and language, I made it clear that we can end up as bad people anytime now. This Game Deserves a 1 Star.
Rail gun Master$$$ on 7/20/2017
I was actually really interested in t
Not worth your time
TC748 on 7/20/2017

Sophia_090203 on 7/20/2017

#huskie on 7/20/2017
What do i love about hooked the awesome chat story,s
Britichele on 7/20/2017
Really good stories but have to wait for hoots is cruel
Waste of time
Giggle love on 7/20/2017
I kept seeing the commercials on YouTube and finally my curiosity got the best of me... but apparently now you have pay to see stupid photos.
Extremely greedy
Guy91973 on 7/20/2017
This might be considered a "free" app but you can't even read the first story without having to pay or wait over 30 minutes. In addition you can't look at pictures or listen to audio without paying the ridiculous amount of $3 a week. This is the WORST pay to pay app ever and it is actually only the second bad review I have ever given an app so that says something about how disappointed I am with this app.
Wasted time, money and this is a crap
tumi r ami on 7/20/2017
Please don't download it not even free versions to try!!!!! 😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡
Kaiti11101705 on 7/20/2017
Every time I wait for hoots I can't even get two texts in and it says waiting to recharge
This scare the heck out of me.
Excalibur3794 on 7/20/2017
Amazing job with the story's. They keep me scared but excited, or should I just say HOOKED, HAHAHAHAHA.... I'm sorry. Only thing I don't like is you have to pay for so much simple stuff.
