Tap is a stepping away from the traditional storytelling-style format to experiment with chat story-style writing. The short tales are meant to feel as if you’re peeking in on someone else’s text messages, which seems to be the current trend in digital publishing today.
Tap is free to download on both iTunes and Google Play, but if you like what you see you’ll have to subscribe for full access to the site: $2.99/week, $7.99/month or $39.99/year. This is comparable to the prices of similar apps offering the same type of service.
When Tap first launched in February, only hand-selected authors were inviting to provide content, but the new Create feature now allows anyone to create interactive stories using a combination of text, images, and emojis.
If you’re familiar with Tap, or other apps like it, I’d love to know what you think! Will readers pay for access to this unique, new way to tell stories? And if you’re currently enjoying the app, don’t forget to leave a review!
The text message story I wrote is currently being featured. It’s a Young Adult Suspense called Bad Behavior. You can start reading it HERE.
