Last summer I had the chance to check out Wattpad at the BlackBerry PlayBook Experience in NYC. As an avid reader, I've been patiently waiting for it to arrive for BlackBerry 10 devices and that day has finally come. Part e-Reader and part "YouTube for e-books" it is an excellent way to discover novels, stories, and fan fiction by both classic writers and novices from an array of genres.
While this is an Android port for BlackBerry 10, it offers a pleasant experience for anyone who loves reading on their handheld. You can check out the full list of features available below or take a peak at the walkthrough video above.
