Today, we are excited to announce that we have launched a new version of our popular iOS app. The latest version features a simple and more intuitive interface to help connect readers to relevant content, encourage story creation, and make it easy to manage social updates and interactions.
The updated app helps new users understand core Wattpad functions, and encourages existing users to engage in activities beyond reading. The new design introduces a navigation bar, which is always on screen and highlights the five core Wattpad experiences: Discover, Library, Write, Social Updates, and Profile.
It’s now even easier for readers to find great stories. The updated app showcases story cover images and story descriptions more prominently, and highlights user-curated reading lists. The new navigation bar places the Write option front and center to prompt existing writers to continue stories they’re already working on, and encourage new writers to try their hand at starting a story.
The redesign also combines several social elements into a single view. Now users can find their Newsfeed, Notifications, and Private Messages under one Social Updates tab.
All of these updates have resulted in an app that is simpler, more intuitive, and more engaging for the millions of people who share stories on Wattpad everyday.
