Love this app! Much better value than Audible. Im disabled and listen to two or three books a week, which would cost a small fortune on Audible. Good range of books and customer service has been exceptional. A couple of issues though, the main one being the suggested books... read book which I hated and gave it a one star review, but recommended books is almost exclusively books by the same author and I can’t remove them! The other thing is that books I’ve saved offline are no longer available and I can’t remove them from my offline list so get an annoying pop up every time I log in. Small gripes as on the whole I think it’s a great app and much better than competitors.

Excellent value and subscription. BUT...

The selection of books and price is second to none on scribd. I would love it...however:

The app has big problems. If you turn off mobile data, the phone will run very hot and drain an entire iPhone battery in under an hour.

If you leave mobile data on it will use it up even when playing downloaded books! Today I downloaded a book via Wi-fi and listened for 3 hours. In that time I check the mobile data stats and scribd had used 168mb! Doing what??

I had to change my mobile plan recently because after using scribd for a couple of months, and only playing already downloaded audiobooks (no streaming) scribd had used 9.6gb (you read that right) and cost me an absolute fortune. I have no idea why it needs to use any data at all to play a downloaded audio file. None of the other audiobook apps that I use have these issues.

I have updated my scribd app regularly and iOS firmware too. I’ve tried the app on multiple iPhones. They all have these issues.

Also it crashes. A lot!

Love it...but it has been buggy lately

I’m using Scribd on an iPad Pro 10.5. It is a great concept and I love being able to have unlimited access to the material I need for personal reading or study. But lately the application has been really buggy for me - getting stuck in portrait mode when I am working in landscape; slowing down dramatically, and generally not playing nicely. It could just be my own installation, it is becoming a deal breaker for me. Even so, the breadth of material available on Scribd, the otherwise good interface and subscription model, all mean that it is (realistically) the best out there in what it does.
