  • Ugh

    By blue_fish91
    I thought this was a good app in the beginning but I’m getting so frustrated with it. It’s supposed to be unlimited reading and I get you might have to “limit” after so many of topic, but it’s like if you save it, even if you don’t listen to it, or if you just want to try it to see if you like it, it counts against you! I’ve listen to 3 books this month, only 3 on scribd and I’m already blocked until next month! That’s ridiculous when I’m paying money for this! I am unsubscribing to this. I’m not paying for only 2 to 3 books a month.
  • Was awesome until I found out it’s not truly “unlimited”

    By guesswhatmom
    I absolutely LOVED this app at first (despite some glitches during audio playback), and I recommended it to basically anyone who’d listen! However, after having listened to five or so audiobooks while driving to and from work over the past month, I have discovered that most audiobooks I would want to listen to are now unavailable to me until August 13. I imagine this was buried somewhere in the terms & conditions (and I am a lawyer, so I should have known better and actually read through them in their entirety!); however, I feel like it is pretty deceptive for the app to advertise “unlimited” access and then limit users’ access. I feel like I need to warn the people to whom I recommended the app. Guess it’s back to podcasts for me! Probably going to cancel my subscription knowing that I can only listen to a handful of the audiobooks I would like to listen to in a given month. I realize this is still a pretty great deal compared to other apps, but I feel cheated due to the promise of “unlimited” books. The whole thing leaves a sour taste in my mouth!
  • Bait and Switch

    The old shell game. The free trial that isn’t.
  • New User MVP

    By Tusmile
    I’ve seen the reviews and I don’t like a lot of the issues mentioned look like so many problems I would like to try it though I’ve been wanting to so I think I’ll give it a shot and see how it goes and if I had too many problems I’ll just cancel and switch to audible by amazon. If I can stay here I’ll give it the 5 stars when I’m happy with it
  • I am filing a class action

    By DarthGator206
    Not unlimited at all in fact it is very limited! I listen to 2 books this month and already all titles aren’t available until next month when they were there yesterday! Canceled the subscription and recommending others to do so too, this company is a bunch of liars and not being up front about how limited your account really is.
  • Keeps stopping and drains battery

    By Chef BCass
    I just subscribed and tried listening to my first book. I downloaded the book because I don't have good signal at work. First, the app stopped and reset every few minutes. Second, even though the book is downloaded onto my phone, it seems to have been streaming because it was using data and was draining my battery at an astronomical rate (like 1% every minute).
  • Great content marred by shabby reading experience.

    By DSpaceNine
    I really enjoy all the content available with this subscription, but the reading options are sorely lacking. Very limited number of fonts (no bold fonts, no Helvetica), margins are huge with no way to change them, leaving a lot of unused real estate on the screen, line spacing needs to be allowed to be tighter.
  • Too good to be true

    By Bcjam26
    I would classify this app as too good to be true. To be able to listen to audiobooks for myself, in the car with the family, play stories at night for my kids to fall asleep to - all without worrying about the cost - it seems too good to be true! The app is easy to use, the download feature is perfect for saving on cell phone data charges, and the selection is better than you would expect. I use this app daily.
  • App is stopping

    By psikes
    I have been a subscriber for a while now but am ready to drop it. For about a month now I can read two or three pages of a book and then the app suddenly dies and I am booted out to my home screen.
  • Not really unlimited audiobooks

    By VolGirl89
    I have been a huge fan of Scribd and recommended it to several of my friends. I have enjoyed listening to audiobooks while I work, and now I have found that 90% of the books I would like to listen to are unavailable to me until 08/16. I understand this hidden in the terms and conditions, I just think you should stop saying you offer unlimited audiobooks. I certainly am not currently receiving unlimited audiobooks. I suppose my days of listening to books at work are behind me and I am going to have to go back to listening to podcasts. Not sure that I am going to continue my subscription if my content is going to continue to be limited. I feel like I have been put in “time-out” for actually using and enjoying your app. I would be willing to pay more for TRULY unlimited audiobooks.
