    Greetings!

    We are very excited to announce that the Beta Version of our Android App and updated website are ready for fans to explore. Library? Reading List? Reviews? All in one. Check it out and enjoy!

    With this app, you can read on the go, save books for offline reading, and sync all your devices seamlessly. In addition, all features of the website have been updated. Hope you will enjoy the new website and Android App.

    For fans who have not received invitation codes, no worries at all. We still provide some events and channels to get invited short later:

    1. Receive a code through participating in our events on Novelupdates or Reddit.

    2. Receive a code through participating in our events on Facebook, Twitter, or Google+.

    3. Our translators&editors will hand out codes randomly to readers on our website.

    4. Codes will be inserted in recent updated chapters randomly. Let's find them out. :D

    For fans who have received the code. You are really lucky and hope you will like the new site and App. One more thing you need to be aware is that being serious to leave reviews of titles on the site. All meaningless reviews and comments will be banned and the account would be banned too if you left so many meaningless reviews under the series.

    Immerse Yourselves in Mystical Adventures!

    Have a wonderful weekend,

    Team Qidian International

    we don't use any third party comments plugins. We will build it by ourselves. That's why it might take a while

    it's by chance. Only hundreds of fans received the codes. No worries, we will send more codes later on, by each week.

    Somehow when I read the comments above about not receiving invitation codes too, I feel better.

    Since I too subscribed to qidian as soon as the site came up, alas its not luck...

    I strongly suggest not installing the Qidian app until they give a full accounting for the completely unnecessary laundry list of permissions they require.

    Code:
    Version 1.0.0 can access:
    
    Device & app history
    - retrieve running apps
    
    Phone
    - read phone status and identity
    
    Photos/Media/Files
    - read the contents of your USB storage
    - modify or delete the contents of your USB storage
    
    Storage
    - read the contents of your USB storage
    - modify or delete the contents of your USB storage
    
    Wi-Fi connection information
    - view Wi-Fi connections
    
    Device ID & call information
    - read phone status and identity
    
    Other
    - read Home settings and shortcuts
    - receive data from Internet
    - view network connections
    - change system display settings
    - connect and disconnect from Wi-Fi
    - measure app storage space
    - full network access
    - run at startup
    - reorder running apps
    - control vibration
    - prevent device from sleeping
    - modify system settings
    Of that whole list, perhaps 8 of the requested permissions would actually be necessary for a reading app, and at least 3 of those only count if some kind of offline chapter caching were included. The rest is unnecessary wholesale data-mining. You may not be throwing pennies at chapters yet but you're paying for your reading experience with data that's worth much more if you use that app.
