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.

Good service but needs iPad Pro multitasking needs updates

Randen Montalvo

I have had scribd for sometime but they are not listening to their audience with iPad pros wanting multitasking support. It’s very annoying that this is the only PAID service app left behind by every other book app in the App Store. You are locked into the app cannot do anything else and it’s just dated considering free book apps have this feature. Scribd needs to update the iPad Pro app or face frustrating is user base to a dated feature set as compared to EVER BOOK APP IN THE APP STORE. I myself am considering cancelling due to this and my wife, it’s just a critical thing to have on a 12.9 iPad Pro. Scribd is not updated the app in a meaningful way and more importantly years not listening to its users especially on twitter whom have been yelling for that update.
