Glitterbug Chat Stories Android app

Glitterbug Chat Stories Android app

Here at Glitterbug we love to write stories. That’s why we are releasing our Glitterbug Chat Stories Android app. We have been very happy with the positive response to our Painted World ebook app which we released earlier in 2017 and we enjoyed the writing so much and we have decided to create another fiction app.
Our new app is simply entitled Glitterbug Chat Stories because, well, it is a chat stories app.

What are chat stories?

Chat stories are short fiction pieces designed for the mobile user. Chat stories are written in the style of text messages.
The stories are highly dialogue focused, fast paced and full of action.
Chat stories are quickly becoming a popular form of fiction which lends itself well to the age of mobile devices.

Glitterbug Chat Stories – one Tap and you will be hooked!

Glitterbug chat stories are written for different genres. We plan to update our app on a very regular basis with new
stories including a few long serials updated weekly. Each story is written in the form of text messages between different
characters.
Genres include horror, comedy, drama, fantasy, romance and action. We have a growing number of stories.

100% free

Each Glitterbug chat story contains roughly 200 – 300 messages, making them lengthy enough to create stories which you
can sink your teeth into.
Your place in the story is automatically saved, so you can leave the app, try another story and then return to each story
where you last started.

Our chat story app is 100% free. This means that there are no in-app purchases, no 20 minute or 40 minute waits for users who
refuse to pay fees. All our users are free users. We also limit advertising to rewarded videos which you watch after every
50 messages. We have absolutely no banner ads or institutional ads. This is because we highly value the reader experience.

Our Android version is now available. You can download our chat stories here for google play (iOS version coming soon)

Whats new this week

This week we released the Glitterbug Galvanize app. It’s our brand new app and our first venture into lifestyle or motivational apps. Galvanize is a┬ácasual motivation app.

Galvanize is all about feeling better about yourself.

A casual motivation app

Galvanize a casual motivation app which means that there are no nagging
reminders, annoying push messages or updates on your progress. We find that those kind of techniques, while useful for some
people, do not suit everyone. One size does not fit all. Personally, I like to get ideas and suggestions for things that can
make me feel better without updates which make me feel guilty on those days that do not feel like doing the tasks.
We wanted something helpful but kinder and more gentle and that’s why we created Galvanize.

 

So, what exactly is casual motivation?

Casual motivation means that you are in control. Instead of adhering to a regimented schedule or when to do what, you decide
to take part when you want to. It can often be counter productive to be nagged about doing things we don’t feel up to.

Galvanize works like this – when you feel like you want to tune in, when you need suggestions, ideas or something, just
something to make you feel better, open the app, choose a topic and begin.

Topics include suggestions to make you feel happier, more energized, more social, comforted, more community focused, more aware, more upbeat, more relaxed.

How does Galvanize work?

This free app uses the premises of Cognitive behavioral therapy to provide motivation, lifestyle choices and practical suggestions.
Galvanize starts with a screen showing images and each image has a topic relating to how you want to feel or what you would like to
focus on.
Examples of these are first steps – things to do when you don’t feel like you want to get out of bed in the morning, energize –
activities which will increase your energy levels, give back – ideas for things you can do to help other people.
There are many more topics.
When you click on a topic, you will get a suggestion for an activity which you can do to help you get closer to your goal, whatever
that may be.
Simply tap the next button at the bottom of the screen to see the next idea. Read through the ideas or return to the screen to
choose another topic.
