Toronto, Canada – The Wattpad free book reader app recently passed ten million global downloads and reached top five status in the Books category in a growing list of countries for its popular downloadable free book app for iOS, iPad, and iPhone. Wattpad is the world’s largest community of readers and writers; 20 million people spend 4.5 billion minutes a month on Wattpad.

The Wattpad app makes it possible to access one of the world’s largest, ever-growing library of free downloadable books and stories. It consistently ranks in the top five ebook reader apps in North America and has now reached number one status in the Philippines and top five status for Book apps in Australia, New Zealand, Chile, Denmark, Panama, Peru, Spain and other countries.

Standing out in the Books Category in North America and Beyond:
Most apps in the Books category and most free book reader apps concentrate on delivering books in a few languages, from selected publishers, or to only one digital reading platform. The Wattpad books app stands out not only for the volume of free books and stories it makes available – over 30 million uploads and every day 80,000 are added – but by the range of books. Popular genres on Wattpad include romance, fan fiction, sci-fi, horror, teen, young adult, thriller and poetry.

Another defining aspect of the Wattpad free books app is that in addition to offering great free books and stories to read it’s also a tool that lets users write their own downloadable stories. Every day 80,000 new uploads are created this way with the majority of them being shared or experienced via mobile devices loaded with the free Wattpad app.

The Wattpad app is also truly interactive by offering readers a chance to interact with writers and other readers. If a reader loves a story they can comment on that story, ask the writer a question, suggest a new character or chapter, become a “fan” who gets story updates via the Wattpad app, and vote for their favorite free stories and books.

These features – and the fact that the Wattpad app provides access to downloadable free books in over 30 languages, and can sync across devices and platforms–has helped Wattpad stand out in the Books category beyond the North American market.
