So one of the things I thought was interesting about Wattpad was that it was originally setup for reading via phone -- it has now expanded to include a bunch of different mobile devices, tablets, and the web, but originally it was for mobile phone reading.
"Cool," I thought. "That's potentially an entirely different audience. And if that's how Wattpad started I bet their phone & tablet support is excellent."
So I have the Wattpad app installed on both my Atrix 2 and my ASUS eee Pad (smartphone and tablet respectively) and... I'm nonplussed.
When I uploaded my first five chapters to the web account that manages your stories, I was impressed. It preserved most, though not all, of my formatting. The bolded words were bolded, the italics were italicized, there was even spacing between lines and slightly more spacing between paragraphs. When I published chapter 1 and viewed it from the web, it looked pretty good. Pretty readable.
It's... horrible on the phone and tablet. There's no bolded text, no italicized text, and it looks like every paragraph is separated with not one, but two blank lines. I find it intensely distracting and very hard to read.
I thought I had done something wrong, so I opened up a few other stories to see.
No, that's the way it is for all of them.
The good news is that if that's the way it works on Wattpad, the Wattpad audience probably isn't put off by it. And according to Alexa they have a ridiculously low page rank (lower is better on Alexa) so there is a massive potential audience to tap into, so it's not "wrong," but it was very startling.
