Beta-Testing an App with Inkitt!

BREAKING NEWS:

DATA DRIVEN PUBLISHER INKITT LAUNCHES IOS APP
Inkitt empowers readers and publishers to discover world’s next best sellers

BERLIN, NOVEMBER 16, 2016: Inkitt, the world’s first algorithm-based book publisher, is introducing an iOS app for iPhone and iPad available to readers globally today.

In less than 2 years from launch, Inkitt has attracted over 700,000 unique readers: the iOS app will give book lovers and publishers greater access to Inkitt’s digital library of over 80,000 stories by up-and-coming authors.

I was first introduced to Inkitt maybe two or three months earlier this year. An author had contacted me and asked me to check out her story on there. I made an account and although I haven’t used Inkitt as often as I like, I think that’s going to be quickly remedied with the app. I can now read on the go, which is important for someone like me who’s always on the go!

Some awesome features include:

  • Access to 80,000 stories in every genre: fantasy, sci-fi, romance, thriller, horror, adventure, action and more
  • Personalized suggestions: hand-picked novels based on reader’s preferences
  • App customization according to user preferences (e.g. font size, colors)
  • Online/Offline: readers can save novels to their offline library to access them without an internet connection

If you haven’t guessed already, I got to test this glorious app before release!

I tried out the available features and I must say I enjoyed it. The app is clean and works smoothly and quickly (as long as your wifi isn’t on its last leg), which is imperative when you’re reading a book that’s got you chewing on your nails. I loved the fact that I can change the font size and colors when I’m reading stories. It may seem like a small thing, but I really do enjoy not having to hold my phone up to my face and/or squinting while I’m reading, give your eyes a rest (they deserve it!). I really liked the online/offline feature because as I said before, I’m always traveling, so now I can read while I travel with or without wifi.

Beyond being a platform connecting authors and readers, Inkitt has developed an in-house algorithm that analyzes reading behavior to determine if a novel has the potential to become a bestseller. Using this unique data-driven approach, Inkitt aims to help emerging writers achieve their dreams of getting published by becoming a point of reference for publishers looking to uncover the world’s next best sellers.

Back in April, Inkitt announced the signing of the platform’s first algorithm-chosen novel, Bright Star, a Young Adult fantasy novel written by Texan author Erin Swan and signed for publication with Tor Books. Since July, Inkitt has published another 3 novels: Catalyst Moon: Incursion by Lauren L. Garcia (Fantasy), Just Juliet by Charlotte Reagan (YA Romance) and I Was A Bitch by Emily Ruben (YA Romance Mystery). Both Just Juliet and I Was A Bitch became best sellers in their respective categories upon launch.

About Inkitt

On the surface, Inkitt is a platform where budding writers can share their novels and inquisitive readers can unearth fresh content. But under the hood, we are democratizing publishing: Inkitt is built on an algorithm which analyzes reading patterns to predict future bestsellers. Using this unique data- and readers-driven approach to uncover highly addictive stories, Inkitt’s goal is to remove the middle person so that a blockbuster book is never rejected by a publishing house again. In other words, if readers love it, Inkitt publishes it.

    Yep, I use the app now. I signed up for the site about the same timeframe as you, for the same reason. Someone emailed me a book and I had to claim it via Inkitt, and I like the site. I haven’t gotten a chance to read anything on there yet, but I have several books in my library, it’s a great concept! And I’m glad you’re spreading the word about it, because even though I have Wattpad, I think Inkitt is so much better and more professional! Great post! 👍
