I’ve been with you guys for a long time. No one enjoys a company that you’ve invested in pulling a book subscription from you based on some flimsy excuse it’s no longer available where you reside. When this happened, my accounts payable department determined that your geolocation prevented us from paying you, and we canceled our membership. Cause-and-effect… Your chief competitors are public libraries that offer pretty good services, even if it’s with lame apps like Libby. At least with my public library, I don’t have to pay $12 a month to be jerked around. BYE
The fact I can listen to unlimited audiobooks for only 11.99 a month blows my mind considering that audible wants like 15/mo for ONE BOOK, genuinely ridiculous to me. i’ve never even tried audible so I can’t compare the two beyond the price but i feel like I am getting much more than $11.99 worth of content from scribd a month when I know I wouldn’t feel that way about audible. I literally recommend scribd to all my friends and even my therapist bc I listen to like 20+ books a month (while i drive, work, legit anything i love listening to them). 100000% recommend and would be willing to pay much more considering the amount of content I get out of it. Only change I would recommend is the option to pay extra for books that are “unavailable until *date of subscription charge*” bc I assume it relates to payment and would definitely be willing to pay more to get the content faster. But I don’t mind too much because even when something is temporarily unavailable I can always find something else good to listen to. Anyway yes im obsessed love u
They boast they offer unlimited books…but actually once I read 4 books, most of their library (except the C & D class) are unavailable. Why am I paying an unlimited subscription?!
quit trying to charge me $119.88 for an app i deleted.
I love this app. I use it daily. There is so much content available through the subscription. My only complaint is that for the past couple months is my audiobooks randomly start over and I then I have to figure out where I left off which is annoying.
Scribd is a decent service. At a decent price. Especially, since you can read as many books as you want. However, a majority of the books I would like to read aren’t on the app. Their selection is subpar and I wouldn’t pay for it.
Ive been using them for years but im starting to see what they do with their catalog so you cant read to many books…..i was starting to a three part series of a audiobook! All these were available then as soon as i get to the third part it’s suddenly unavailable until next month after my billing date! And please dont comment on my review some cheap apologies because i see what you are doing and wish you would just be honest about it! So i need what i need to do so i dont lose my opportunity to listen to a whole audiobook book….. One day maybe the developers will be honest instead of making their customers feel crazy about what is going on with the app. I canceled my subscription….
I don’t know if it’s the latest update or iOS 17 but I’ll listen to part of a book than pause. Come back later and hit play and it will start at the beginning of the book. I’ll skip to the part where I left off and the little arrow on the side will stay on the screen asking if I want to go back to the beginning.
I was recommended Scribd when I asked a friend for a recommendation on audio book subscriptions. I spend a lot of time driving and got sick of podcasts. I listened to one book series in a week and couldn’t get any of the other books I was interested in for a month. I get the app needing to limit how much access you get but if I can only listen to a couple of books a month I am out. I was so disappointed. I will be canceling and not giving this app anymore of my money!
The book you saved is available! Oh wait actually its available in two weeks! Wait a minute its available now!
