    The selection is fantastic, but the search feature is badly broken. I find myself unable to locate books I’ve already read/listened to in search. View similar for books already read/listened to is limited only to articles related to the books versus another book which would be useful. The app would be amazing if they could fix the search

    Maybe I just don’t listen to popular books but I haven’t experienced disappearing titles like other users report. I’m not trying to invalidate their claims but for me Scribd has been excellent. I spend a lot of time in traffic and audiobooks are a life saver from the boredom of being stuck in a car for ages. If used another app and was paying per book... I’d go broke. The yearly price is totally worth it.
  • Crashing, please fix

    Fixed. I do really appreciate this app and all that it offers. So for it’s the best paid audiobook/ebook app I’ve come across! Thanks for all that you do and keep up the good work!
  • By far the best book APP

    I am blown away at how awesome this service is week after week! The price point, the plethora of books both classic and new, and the way the app runs smoothly. There is no better service, I quickly canceled Audible after getting SCRIBD!

    I have been using scribd for well over a year. I like the content selection but hate the app. I have errors and problems constantly. App takes a few minutes to get to THE most important part - the current book you are listening to. You can't just easily open the app and jump right in. If I in the meanwhile select the book from my history, it cuts off after a few minutes because it finally remembers what book I was on and stops the book to reopen it. If you're in car play, this just cuts off the audio for good until you restart it manually. Downloaded books tend to expire if you don't get to them soon enough. Then the app automatically downloads them again, which uses up your monthly allowance automatically so your can't add any news books until the next month. It cuts off playing randomly or crashes randomly. Sometimes downloads are corrupted so the app skips whole chapters without you realizing it. You have to delete and redownload the book to fix this. Sometimes multiple times. Finally sometimes it refuses to even connect stating there is a connection error. I just updated the app because it wouldn't let me change chapters on an audiobook that I was almost finished (another random bug, app just keeps on spinning while I wait for the chapter to load and it keeps on loading the same chapter). After the update now scribd can't "connect" despite a strong WiFi and cellular connection. It won't even detect my downloaded books. Oh and If you delete and reinstall the app.. guess what. It will delete all your downloaded books. Redownload them may use up your "unlimitedly monthly quota. You can't just tell the to not automatically redownload the previously downloaded books.
  • Lacking basic feature

    Recommendations are static and not user controlable. Almost certainly this ‘oversight’ in what is a fundamental feature in any of SCRIBD’s many competitors, is built into the business model in order to put content they have an interest in you accessing takes precedence over other content. At any case they seem dedicated to keeping this aspect of the application in their sole control. As a result one has to self-censor one’s searches in a vain effort to beat their coercive recommendations. Not really useful as a tool under these conditions.
  • Not cool, Scribd.

    Don’t advertise “unlimited” when you THROTTLE your subscribers after they read 1-2 books. I just finished listening to two books and then, all of a sudden, several books I had already *downloaded* (as in, they were available) are now UNAVAILABLE until next month. I feel cheated and lied to. Not cool, Scribd. Note: I don’t hate the idea that Scribd is going for. I don’t hate the app when it’s all working properly. What I do hate is when a company lies/misleads their customers.
