Wattpad has recently launched After Dark, a free app that offers a curated reading experience for mature romance fans. After Dark was designed specifically for readers over the age of 17 who are looking for quality contemporary romance reading. The app’s sleek new interface presents a specific set of stories such as LGBTQ, Urban, and Fanfiction from the romance category—stories that have already proved popular with Wattpad users and Wattpad staff. Readers can comment and vote on After Dark stories just like on Wattpad.

After Dark was conceived of by a team of Wattpad employees at Hack Friday, our monthly hack-a-thon event. On Hack Friday, Wattpad developers and designers join forces with other employees to bring an idea or product update to life in a single day. The Hack Friday concept for After Dark was transformed into a full-fledged app in just two short weeks.

After Dark is available in the App Store for people 17 years of age and older in the United States, Canada, Great Britain, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa.
