Wattpad is a literature social networking application. Compatible with Android phones and iPhone (iOS), the app has a community with more than 65 million readers in about 50 languages including Portuguese. More than 350 thousand stories are available, published by the service's own users, which can be accessed completely free of charge.
In the following tutorial, check out how to register and use Wattpad to download books to read offline on your phone. The procedure was performed on a Moto E4 running Android 7.1.1 Nougat.

Step 4. While reading the story, you can keep your finger pressed on a phrase to select it and share it on social networks, the buttons appear in the upper right corner of the screen. The reading, by default, is vertical. When you reach the end of a chapter, slide the screen up to open the next one.

Step 7. If you finish reading or want to remove a book from your library, you must select it and tap on the "archive" icon (as shown in the image). The selected story will then be moved to the "File" tab. Wattpad informs you that the book will go back to your library if it receives updates.
