Yarn - Chat & Text Stories



    Yarn - Chat & Text Stories's review

    Published: 2017-06-29, by .

    While promising, Yarn’s potential is ultimately wasted on IAPs

    • Clean, white chat-messaging UI
    • Some stories are terrifying
    • Stories frequently added
    • Most content locked behind very costly paywall
    • View ads or wait time to unlock images
    • Generic, uninspired stories

    "Fictional chats"


    When you look at other people’s text messages, you often feel guilty. But in Yarn: Chat Fiction, instead of feeling guilty, it’s time to immerse yourself in complete strangers’ text conversations. Designed for the iOS and Android, you’ll read through several short stories presented in chat forms. Stories range from mysterious to downright creepy. Along the way, you’ll discover images that will shape the story, placing you right in the center of the drama. Once you’re done, you’ll find Yarn updates each story and conversation daily to keep you engaged and immersed in suspense.


    Featuring a clean, white chat-messaging UI that’s very intuitive, you’ll find most of the stories pack a terrifying punch, thanks to increasingly creepy images that might frighten even the most-hardened reader.


    While Yarn has potential, it’s ultimately wasted by keeping story progression options locked behind a costly premium subscription, meaning you’ll have to view ads or wait a half hour to unlock each image as well as subscribe for a seven-day free trial. You’ll unfortunately also mostly find generic and uninspired stories.
