Zoe Pearl ,

The audiobook content is great, the app not so much

I really like the subscription based model, but the app is really unstable and ruins the overall experience.
The range of content is great, but the app seems to seriously struggle with audiobooks, which is what I’ve primarily used it for. It takes a long time to load new chapters, particularly when I try to skip back, which I need to do often because it seems to repeatedly skip forward of its own accord.
Sometimes exiting the app and entering again will fix this. Sometimes. Occasionally I’ve needed to restart my phone to fix the problem.
After extended use, my phone starts to get really hot and the app crashes a lot, which is annoying.
The widget on the lock screen doesn’t seem to work reliably either, and doesn’t work at all with my wireless headphones.

If they fix the app in future, I’ll definitely come back to the service, but for now the app is just too frustrating to make it worthwhile.

Limited content

I signed up for Scribd for a specific book that I wanted to listen too. That book wasn’t available in my country which is annoying but I thought I’d give it a try anyway. Then today the book I was reading suddenly became unavailable in my country - I only had about four chapters left!
So yeah, based on the available content in New Zealand I think Scribd isn’t worth it.

Developer Response ,

Hi there - I'm sorry that specific books are temporarily unavailable to you right now. While we cannot guarantee the immediate availability of every title, all titles found using our Explore page should be available for unlimited reading right away: Still have questions? Email - Thanks!
