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!

Money seeking

Sub-par stories that you have to become a "special hoot member" to continue reading when you run out of "hoots".
cajunlizard on 6/22/2017
You have to pay to see any sort of picture and can't even pick a story to start with. Then you have to wait to even finish it. Stinks.
Okay well
okaywelllllll on 6/22/2017
I kept on getting interrupted with ads and running out of hoots so I will probably delete this and ignore it good stories though
Great App
The StrawHatViper on 6/22/2017
This is definitely the best app in this series of scary texting apps. I downloaded this app through an ad on one of Leafyishere's YouTube videos, and it is very great.
leyla_bear on 6/22/2017
Cool and amazing
Awkwardbeauty522 on 6/22/2017
I hate the hoots you gets and when you use them all you have to wait an hour. But i love the stories.
Don't Bother
Arosas1985 on 6/22/2017
The stories try so hard to build up suspense by practically using the same kind of dialogue with one person asking a bunch of questions and the other person just telling them to wait. You also have to pay to see images and essentially read the stories which is a bunch of crap. You're probably better off reading some creepypasta story off the internet: they're way better stories and you don't have to pay to read them. Please stay away from this app
Cathie Smith on 6/22/2017
The stories are good but you have to buy a lot just to see an image or to read more
Worst app EVER
The Ginger of Awesomeness on 6/22/2017
The whole thing is pay to read. They force you to do it and it's ridiculous after the first story I wasn't planning on reading anymore and I am deleting this garbage app. My suggestion. If you have like $3 a week for a waste of money go ahead and buy this crap but if you don't want to waste your time then don't download it
Micro-transactions ruin the whole experience
neochase23 on 6/22/2017
I wasn't even reading for 5 minutes before the app told me I had t either pay real money to finish the story, or wait 40 minutes. Atrociously greedy, won't ever touch the thing. Sad cause the idea is pretty cool, but I'm sure there's a better, free version out there
It's great
kaylen 🤤💛😞 on 6/22/2017
I love it !!!!!! 😍
Monthly Costs?!
StelarFoil71 on 6/22/2017
Why do I need to pay a fee to view pictures for the story? If it was a one time pay then maaybee I'll buy but then why not just charge for the app itself. But instead I have to pay monthly to view pictures?? Really? Rip off. The pictures seem off with the stories in the first place and can throw the story off anyway. I'll come back and reinstall when the charges go away.
Why wth
Hhhhekeksm... on 6/22/2017
Why are they trying to steal our money? Wth...
It is great
Jeff340 on 6/22/2017
I like it ,it has a good thrill to it when your reading
Love it!
shebenni on 6/22/2017
This app is really cool and the stories really grab you like the nene suggests
Love it!
rinakatrina😎 on 6/22/2017
I love the stories! They are full of suspense
University is so good on 6/22/2017
Love it
iMadeTwitter on 6/22/2017
It's not "free" if you want to enjoy the stories. Cost to see images and to read the stories at once without a 40 minute break. Don't waste your time.
Sh*tty and boring. Waste of time.
Reyes.13ronte on 6/22/2017
This app has barely any stories that are interesting and they all seem the same. "This person got kidnapped, this girl is in danger, oh no!", and it never really works out for me. I've wasted my time and money on this app and I am severely disappointed in it to say the least. I'm also very annoyed with having to be patient or spend money. People who read these kinds of stories are not really patient. And if they are then they're not really interested. Just bored.
ES Memon on 6/22/2017
This is scary!! Love it 😍
Josh23145 on 6/22/2017
Great stories! 👍🏽
mystery dweller on 6/22/2017
Can't put my phone down!
Sarah.Marie on 6/21/2017
This app is amazing with great drama stories. In my opinion I would recommend this app to beginners.
sanitizedinwonderland on 6/21/2017
So far these are fun little stories. I'm not crazy about waiting to finish reading, when you start the timer. But, I guess you have to make money somehow. Fun.
kowboiz on 6/21/2017
Get out your wallets folks. Please ✌🏿
Hansen the swag man 😎😎😎 on 6/21/2017
I love it the stories leave u in suspense in2 what's gonna happen nxt
Annunka on 6/21/2017
This app I wouldn't say is bad but they do want to screw you over for money. Now if you like the suspense of waiting like I do then this app is good for you. Or if you would like you can download the app and look for interesting story's and then google them and view them all at once. I've done it a few times.
bellarainia on 6/21/2017
I think it should be free
Eric Snow on 6/21/2017
Uh, where should I begin? Maybe with the fact that this app along with its developers are strictly in it to make a quick buck. Changing everything around to where you have to pay to see images & to also keep reading the stories is ridiculous. (& if you actually indulge them you're ridiculous too). I wish I could give this app a negative rating such as it deserves but the liberation I feel from deleting it is justice enough. Esnizzy out, peace. ✌🏽
Don't Bother
Motobunz on 6/21/2017
What a SCAM! I'm going to pay after getting ten lines into the story? Like hell!!!
FlashGaming44 on 6/21/2017
The stories are cool but every time I scroll down to far it crashes and it's dumb that you have to pay to see images that ain't even realistic I will give five starts if you change these problems
Linny44 on 6/21/2017
Really like the stories.
Waste of Time
MissyRocks123456 on 6/21/2017
As soon as it gets to the good part they want you to pay for a subscription!!?! Why would you charge people for this and expect them to pay??? Put ads or something on your app but I sure as heck am not about to pay $7+ to read this garbage. Don't waste your time!!!
Deleted it for a reason
Hihihihihihihiu on 6/21/2017
I used to have this app and forgot why I deleted it so I redownloded it and remembered. You have to pay $7-$8 (forgot) just to see pictures and have to pay just to finish one simple story. If you want people to pay to read spooky stories at least make to .99-$2.
Wow seriously
mad and lonely on 6/21/2017
You're trying to make people pay to read these cheesy half witted stories? And to view useless staged photos ?
PinkFluffyUnicorns93 on 6/21/2017
You're so mean! Maybe I don't want to pay! I see why it's called hooked! You get people hooked and then you make them pay for it because you know it's suspenseful!😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😩😩😩😩😩😩😩😩😩😩😩😩😩😩😩😩😩😩😩😩😩😩😩😩😩😩
I can't handle the suspense!
TsumTsum13 on 6/21/2017
It's awesome! The only thing I would fix is how long u have to wait to keep going after a certain number of texts
Lauren cupcake 🦃 on 6/21/2017

Def Hooked
Specialist-Skye on 6/21/2017
I am def Hooked on Hooked. It's a little cheesy at times but I enjoy it. The suspense, drama, intrigue. Waiting for my next turn.
ddenisee on 6/21/2017
Such a great app and it's really interesting I just don't like it how we have to wait 30 minutes to read more but besides that it's a great app
this is the best app!¡
Peanut20010 on 6/21/2017
I love this app and I love reading the stories I don't like how I have to wait to read the next part but whatever!
