Online storytelling app Wattpad gives users an ad-free option for $5.99 a month

Canadians who prefer their online stories told without advertising to interrupt the dramatic flow can now subscribe to a “premium” version of the Wattpad app. But it’s going to cost them.

The Toronto-based company says it is responding to reader requests — and hoping for a revenue boost — by rolling out a subscriber-paid version of its free online storytelling app that costs $5.99 per month or $60 per year. The same price is being charged in both the U.S. and Canada, which means Canadians will pay less than Americans at current exchange rates.

The app has become a popular hangout for passionate readers eager to embrace the work of new writers, particularly when it comes to fan fiction tales inspired by pop stars, actors and literary characters.
