Great App!


I love this app so much. My daughter and I compared several reading apps before trying this one. I am quite happy with it so far, and so is she. It uses very little battery life, and with the different screen color settings, I can read easily at night without hurting my eyes or disturbing my husband. The price is fairly reasonable for the amount of books you get per month, but I do wish I could either trade my audiobook credit for another book credit or gift my audiobook credit to my daughter, since I doubt I’ll use them and she wishes she had more. Haha. Other than that, I’m very happy with our choice. I can find just about any author that I search for. Oh, and the unlimited sheet music is just an added bonus for me! I’ve found music that I used to play when I was younger, and newer music as well. I’m sure that this app is one that I’m going to keep a subscription on for a long while.

Great idea, lots of glitches lately


I have been using Scribd for about 4 years now (since back when they had comics) I have always loved it but the past 6 months they have gotten sloppy. Books don't download, audiobooks won't play properly and now I can't open a book (it's been a week w/o it) I am half way done with. I have contacted support several times in the past few months with problems and questions and they take FOREVER to get back to you. When they do, they seldom actually answer the question you asked but instead spout FAQ answers that are irrelevant.

Now that there are so many apps and services that offer the same things I would not suggest a subscription to Scribd. Let them get there act together again before spending the money on a glitchy app with bad costumer service.

UPDATE: the latest update erased everything saved offline and wants me to use my credits to purchase books I already purchased. This app keeps getting worse.

Love the variety of ebooks and audiobooks


I look forward to new books each month on Scribed. I read mysteries, nonfiction, self help and even cookbooks. I can’t afford to buy many books but with Scribed I pay one fee a month which is less than a book and I can read many books or listen to audiobooks.

I have an eye disease. At times, I cannot read more than one page. But I can get on Scribed and listen to audiobooks. That has been a godsend to me. Other programs like Audible are too expensive. Scribed is affordable and has a wide selections of new books.
