    Yeah. looks good to me also. They approached me asking if I write novels, but I've only translated some novels. Not sure if I am a good storyteller. But perhaps I'll try when I got the time as I do have some ideas in my mind.

    Much appreciated! Living in South Korea kinda throws my timing off from rest of the western world.

    For phone I would go with something like Turbo. It is free and decent for what you get. ExpressVPN etc etc are all solid.

    Now I kinda feel bad, even though I like to write, I`m a beginner and I never wrote a complete story(Now that I think about it, I wrote a Cell phone novel once then deleted it) I mostly wanted to access the stories there that`s why I was sad about not having access.

    Thank you though.

    More competition in the market is always welcome. I'll have to check it out in my free time. If they truly go with non-exclusive too. Being one of the "first" posters usually gives a great headstart if the app/site possibly catches attention later.

    My recommendation is just post it and keep posting. Even if one doesn't take off it will improve your writing.

    Well you are right, but I am a little afraid. Thanks for the piece of advice, I should act on it.

    Yep, that's why I was planning to write one when I got the time. Just a bit worried about my writing skill. But still, it never hurts to give it a try.

    I believe everyone can have a try, regardless of age. But they do have sort of a reviewing process, they have editors who would read the stories first before signing. Currently, their profit model is displaying ads, and readers can read for free while authors can get a revenue split. But I'm not sure if they'd have a pay-to-read program in the future.

    And from what they told me, they're preparing to expand the app to more countries, including the UK.
