Wattpad for Android Updated With New Creation, Messaging Options

wattpad_logoThe world’s largest online writing community has rolled out an update for their Android app earlier this week.

Wattpad has long enabled writers and readers to create content and consume content via their mobile apps and today that got easier.

Writers can now add bold and italicized text when creating a story in the app, and that is a good improvement over just bare text (though I do wish it offered more formatting options).

The app has also been updated with a new library view, a new pull-to-refresh gesture, and the option to send and receive messages to and from other users. Wattpad is also reporting that this update includes bug fixes as well as improved response time in the library menu.

The update has only been applied to the Android app; I checked iTunes and the iPad app is still on version 3.9.1. It’s probably going to get this update in the next week or so.

Changelog for v3.10:

? Native Messaging: Send and receive messages to other Wattpad users
? Bold and italics options when creating a story
? Toggle between list view and grid view in your library
? Pull to refresh in library and create
? Faster loading and scrolling in library
? Lots of bug fixes
