Wattpad Launches App for Erotic Fiction

Wattpad is heating things up this week with the launch of After Dark, a new free iOS app which offers an adult reading experience curated for fans of romance and erotica.

Long a home to all types of original and fan-fiction, Wattpad is launching the app in the wake of the growing popularity created by the 50 Shades movie.

The app offers genre and theme channels such as contemporary romance, LGBTQ, paranormal, dangerous bad boys, etc. As on the Wattpad site and other Wattpad apps, users can comment and vote on the stories they're reading.

"On the heels of the release of Fifty Shades of Grey, interest in mature stories has spiked," said Melissa Shapiro, Wattpad's head of global marketing. "With After Dark, adult romance readers now have a beautiful app where they can find all the steamiest stories from Wattpad."

You can find the app in iTunes.

In related news, Wattpad has also launched an official Romance profile on its site.  While a profile normally belongs to a user, this profile will be used to offer romance-focused reading lists and story suggestions. Wattpad has other official profiles, including ones for SF, fan fiction,  and more.
