What's New in Version 3.9.1
We have fixed several bugs that were causing the app to crash. Along with some minor tweaks under the hood to keep Scribd humming along.
Not ready for prime time!
You know how some apps just work? This is not one of those apps, at least for audiobooks. This app is frustrating to say the least. The most common thing you will see is "just a moment" while the audiobook struggles to figure out where you stopped listening. Then after a "moment" which apparently means 5-15 minutes or restarting the app plus 5 minutes, about half the time it starts on the wrong chapter or at the beginning of the chapter you were 20minutes into. And then forget finding your spot again. Just listen to the chapter again it will take less time than seeking.
I feel like the father of a teenage burnout saying this but the sad thing is this app an service could and hopefully soon could be great. "Scribr, you have so much potential." The positive is if you want to listen to audiobooks this service has a goodish selection and is a much better deal than the competition assuming you can listen to more than one book a month. I can, or could if this freaking app would get its $h1t together.
Comics, Books, How-to Crafts oh my!
When reading in a article that Scribd had Marvel in their library of many books and other good reads, I jumped on it right away! After reading a couple of volumes of GI Joe I was very happy with every intention of keeping my account active for there are so many great comics to read, as well as books recommended by friends. I also like that the subscriber can save books to their device to read on the go when offline.
Not much more to say but I am really enjoying reading on my iPad for I mostly use it for gaming, and music making. If you’re a reader or love comic books like I do, then take advantage of the first free month and subscribe.
Audiobook playback needs serious work
I was so excited to try this app, both for the ebook and audiobook selections. But the audiobooks have been a hassle from the start. I download them to my phone using a wifi connection, so I haven't had streaming problems (though audiobooks have abruptly erased themselves from storage when I was just waiting for them to start playing), but the app always loses my place. It frequently jumps either to the beginning of my current chapter, forward a chapter, or backward a chapter, even if I've only momentarily paused it. And if I've used another app in the meantime, it sometimes starts from the beginning of the book! This would be a 4- or 5-star app if the playback worked properly. As it is, I'm not encouraged to want to pay a monthly fee for an app that's a hassle to manage. Please fix it!
