We’re excited to update you on the new Library management experience which was recently tested with Wattpaders on iOS.
Offline reading makes it possible to take your favorite Wattpad stories with you on the go—without being connected to the internet. With the new Library management experience, it is easy to add and remove stories from your Offline List with the tap of a button. Connect to the internet momentarily, add a story to your Offline List with a single tap, and enjoy diving into your next obsession wherever you are—no internet needed.
Issues with the previous version of Library management resulted in Wattpaders having a lack of control over automatic downloads, device storage overload, Library syncing issues, and app crashes— which is not the offline experience we want to provide.
You now have total control over the stories you save for offline reading by curating an Offline List based on your needs and preferences. You tell Wattpad when and how to use your internet connection and device storage. Also, any Paid Stories you have added to your Library will be available for offline reading and will not count towards your offline limit.
The new Library experience will be slowly rolling out to all Wattpadders, and over the course of the coming weeks, each one of you will eventually see this update. This new Offline reading was designed and built for you—the members of our diverse, creative, and passionate community—and we can’t wait for you to explore it for yourselves.
