Wattpad is a service that enables mobile users worldwide to discover, read, share and request user-generated stories on mobile phones.
Discover and Read
One of the greatest challenges facing the mobile industry today is getting users to find the relevant content. Most content is consumed because it is a recognizable brand included in a "What's New" or "Top 10" list provided on a mobile operator's site. With Wattpad, mobile users can easily discover targeted and community recommended stories through Wattpad's mobile application. The mobile application provides a highly optimized and rich user experience on a wide range of mobile phones.
Upload, Tag and Share
Community members can also upload crazy party stories, jokes, fiction or anything they find interesting to share. The stories will become instantly available worldwide through web browser interface on PCs or through Wattpad's Java-based application on mobile phones. Through tagging, the stories can easily be discovered by interested community members.
Stories are not limited to what are currently available on Wattpad. Any user who is looking for a specific story can request the community to locate and upload it. Wattpad is a whole new kind of volunteerism for social networking.
