  • NOT unlimited

    By bri3913
    I love the idea of this app however the term unlimited is not accurate AT ALL. It’s been a few months now and basically it’s unlimited for the first week and then every book I try to download isn’t available until the following month. Paying a monthly fee is fine if I could use the app all month but now that I’m only really getting what I want for a week or so it’s not okay. I understand that it’s some agreement with the publishers or whatever but it’s definitely not unlimited
  • Beware: bait and switch....

    By TrrblSwftSwd
    Yes, I took the bait” on the “unlimited” number of (audio) books per month, but after downloading a number of books, the reality on the limitations of the membership was revealed to me when I started getting “Will be available on...” messages on my saved books in the app, thereby “throttling” my consumption rate. If they had been up front about this feature, I would’ve been ok with it, but not now. I refused to be baited and switched. Back to Audible....
  • Glitch

    By ourlast4ever
    Recent update issues: Words from books are crammed together. Lagging when turning the page. Fix this.
  • Love this more than Kindle

    Better. Still needs some more books for my spirituality but fairly good
  • Awesome, but flawed

    By yellowtide07
    This is such a great app and service. I love being able to listen and read all the books I otherwise might not purchase. The recommendations for books to check out are great, and so is the selection. The two biggest complaints I have are that I feel like I never know which book will put me over the limit for monthly audiobooks, so whereas I would maybe download a shorter book that I want to listen to, I end up downloading another book, that I do still want to listen to, just because it's longer, so I know I'll have plenty to listen to the rest of the month while I wait for my next audiobooks to be available. And, the other company is that the audiobooks can be glitchy. Maybe every 5 or 10 times of praising an audiobook, when I go to restart it it will restart at the last chapter beginning, instead of where I was in the chapter. Not the worst thing that can happen, cause I can usually find my spot pretty quick, but it can be frustrating.
  • Amazing find for a bookworm

    Best investment I have ever made!
  • App On iPad Air Impossible To Use - Freezing Me Out

    By Mel'sDad
    (Initial 2 star review) I'm an ebook reader with an iPad Air dedicated to reading. I began a subscription to Scribd 4 months ago. While I like their selections & concept, I do wish we could swap audio books for ebooks as I never use them. 2 months ago, the app started freezing, making it nearly impossible to use. After doing the basic troubleshooting without results and writing support, I was able to access the app from my phone and PC to make selections. This past week, after they updated the app and posted they'd solved the freezing problem, it now chokes and freezes to the point of unusability. I am canceling my subscription and deleting from my iPad. ————————- Update to my initial review - 10/14/2018 After canceling my subscription, I decided after a year had passed to try Scribd once more. I’m glad I did. Gone we’re all the iPad glitches previously described. And, perhaps most important, gone were the monthly book limitations. Scribd is now ‘all you can eat’ for a remarkably fair $8.99. These improvements warrant a rating of 4 out of 5 stars. Withholding one star because the interface navigation arrows often vanish when exploring authors and books, requiring me to exit the app and reopen it. Also, it would be healthful to number books in a series so they can be read sequentially. Many thanks for all your hard work - it’s noticed and appreciated.
  • Unlimited? Really?

    By Cakirkette
    I was very disappointed to discover the “unlimited” access I was looking forward to cut me off for a month after 3 audiobooks. I subscribed to this service specifically to listen to a lengthy book series and don’t want long interruptions in the set.
  • I hate it

    By ha1tham
    Once you sign for a membership You cant discontinue it easily They charged me one moth and i never used it. Wouldn’t recommend at all
  • Wait so now you took away books I downloaded?

    By EMN1984
    Ok, so it’s not actually unlimited... Ok still love it. Ok, so books that become available on a certain date magically go back to unavailable with no rhyme or reason.... urgh but ok still really like the app. Now books that I’ve downloaded disappear and get sent to the available soon list!?!?!? How is that even possible? I thought once you downloaded something it was there until deleted. I’m so so disappointed at this point. I’ve also had issues with being double charged. I have since resolved that but I’m getting to a really bad place with all of this. Like so many others have said a little honesty would go a long way. I would not mind paying more if that’s what it takes but don’t tell me something is something and then fail to provide what you said you would
