Forbes recently reported:
Social writing platform and publisher Inkitt launched their new smartphone fiction app Galatea in January of this year. Five months later, their revenue is in the millions of dollars, with thousands of downloads each day and a userbase that devours a total of around four million episodes per month.
The secret behind Galatea’s success, at least in part, is the deep well of stories it has to adapt due to the size of the Inkitt platform, which is home to more than 100,000 authors and over one million users. To keep up with demand, the storytelling app has recruited more than 20 Hollywood screenwriters onto its team, all of whom stay busy adapting the best content from Inkitt.
