It’s getting worse.... and it’s not unlimited

It’s a lie, it’s not unlimited. Also all my saved books were moved to not ready until my subscription renews. So yeah I’m paying for “unlimited” but I’m not getting it. I knew it was too good to be true. The annoying thing is when you submit a ticket all they give you a bunch of legal bs about how they have to remove some books from unlimited bc of the publisher. Funny how my wife who also has it and has a separate account has the book I want but mine says not available. It’s getting frustrating for sure. The latest in this lie of an app is that at the end of the month you get a wonderful email saying x amount of books are available.... and they are not. My wife had 20 books available and when she jumped on the app only two we actually available and the rest are now available soon for the next month!!! So you will wait a whole month then nope still not ready.

That’s my whole issue with Scribd they are false advertising with unlimited and don’t tell to what your limit is. I’m fine with limited I understand it but at least informed your customer what those limits actually are. If they said you get 5-7 books hell I’ll take that over who knows you might get that book you been waiting all month long for....

Not unlimited...

I feel like the person that posted before me. I would be willing to pay way more for a service that actually let me read what I search for. The first few months were great! I loved this service so much, until a few months back when I began getting limited on available books. Nearly every book I searched for was suddenly not available until the renewal date and many times not even then. Now if I do an author search right before my eyes they ALL change to the next month's renewal! What's this about? The only ones it may let me listen to from the author is the Abridged versions which I do not want. It was just audiobooks but as of this morning it's books as well. I do listen a lot but there's just no excuse for saying UNLIMITED and READ WITHOUT LIMITS in the advertising and it being untrue.
I have written in several times and each time it's just a lot of nonsense thrown at you with no real help. And I would LOVE to just SPEAK TO A REAL PERSON but they have no telephones. Kinda strange...
LOVE the idea of this service and LOVED this service in the beginning, still love it when it works out but it is getting increasingly harder to deal with.
Bring it back to the way it was, please guys!
