We've recently started using a longer countdown timer and a slightly increased point cost on some of our books as you read more chapters.
If you're looking to unlock chapters of your favorite stories without having to wait longer, you can tap the "Get Points" icon at the bottom of your app! From there you'll get all sorts of options to get free points to help you unlock chapters quicker.
If you’re looking to remove the timer altogether, we recommend purchasing a subscription. With a subscription, you get full unlimited access to Galatea Originals on the Home tab of the Galatea app without having to wait!
