  • Urdu and Islamic literature

    By ovais maqbool
    Most of the books are available and wonderful to read, thumbs up for scribd
  • Soooo much better than Audible or any other book subscription service

    By Yaoying
    I don’t like to take the time to write review for apps until now. Scribd is a great service. I would like to recommend to anyone, which I have already done to all my friends. It offer great selection and a lot of new audiobooks are almost available as soon as it comes out, which is fantastic! There are a few books that are missing, but it is OK. It offers other alternatives that are able to satisfy your interest to some extent. I learned a lot by listening to the audiobooks, it definitely improved my understanding of the economics and helped my career so much that no other book service has been able to match. Right now I am listening to Bob Woodward’s “Fear” the week after it was initially released. Hopefully, my cheerful spirit can be maintained after the book.
  • Sooo disappointing.

    By DMApple
    The app itself works fine, but the actual service is terrible. It’s supposed to be unlimited, but after listening to one audiobook they throttled my usage and all of the other 10 books I wanted to listen to were unavailable for the next 3 weeks. Contacted support and got an unhelpful response. Figured I’d give it one more month, on the day that the audiobooks were to become available to me, none of them were. I again contacted support asking for a refund, which they would not grant so I have since cancelled my subscription. It’s true what they say, if it seems to good to be true, it probably is. So disappointed in this service.
  • Selection of audio books so sparse.

    By Castsajen
    Everything that I want to read unfortunately it seems like I have to wait a month to be able to read. Or use my eyes for work, so I truly am in audible book kind of listener) so this is very disappointing. Some of these books are old, I don’t understand why I have to wait. If you guys can get this fixed I would be very loyal subscriber but I don’t see a point in staying right now. I also trying to download the book they do offer and they freeze.
  • Great unlimited use!!!!! WELL NOT REALLY

    By Túmadreesstupido
    I guess that is how I got sucked in, the unlimited factor. The whole “read as much as you want “. I have only listened to 2 books and now the ones I have saved are “unavailable for 1 month”. How is it even legal or ETHICAL to advertise a lie????
  • Deceptive

    By Kiki'sMomma
    All of a sudden today a book I was in the middle of reading, as well as almost every other on my saved list had become "unavailable" until October 3rd, which is conveniently when my subscription renews. They were all available when I saved them. Seems like a common problem. Won't be renewing since the "unlimited" is not as advertised 😡😡😡
  • Not unlimited.

    By Aes1979
    States that the paying membership is unlimited and after listening to just 2 audiobooks I can no longer access half of the titles I want until my next month of membership. 👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼 not worth the money if I’m only going to get listen to two books a month. I listen to one book in a few days. I’ll be checking other services and probably cancelling this one unless this issue is resolved quickly.
  • It’s getting worse.... and it’s not unlimited

    By Los0990
    It’s a lie, it’s not unlimited. Also all my saved books were moved to not ready until my subscription renews. So yeah I’m paying for “unlimited” but I’m not getting it. I knew it was too good to be true. The annoying thing is when you submit a ticket all they give you a bunch of legal bs about how they have to remove some books from unlimited bc of the publisher. Funny how my wife who also has it and has a separate account has the book I want but mine says not available. It’s getting frustrating for sure. The latest in this lie of an app is that at the end of the month you get a wonderful email saying x amount of books are available.... and they are not. My wife had 20 books available and when she jumped on the app only two we actually available and the rest are now available soon for the next month!!! So you will wait a whole month then nope still not ready. That’s my whole issue with Scribd they are false advertising with unlimited and don’t tell to what your limit is. I’m fine with limited I understand it but at least informed your customer what those limits actually are. If they said you get 5-7 books hell I’ll take that over who knows you might get that book you been waiting all month long for....
  • Far more limited than I thought

    By Popeaussies
    I knew when I signed up it wouldn't be unlimited without exception however after the last update it only let me download 2 books before telling me the others in my queue wouldn’t not be available until the next month. I would not have paid for the yearly package if I knew I would be throttled more and more each month. I will not be renewing at the end of the year nor can I recommend this app unless the “unlimited” feature turns into a minimum of 8 books per month. Especially since half the selections offered here are available at the library. I do hope a following update will correct some of this as I have enjoyed the app aside from this and the occasional glitching. I will anxiously await the next updates and go from there.
  • Limits on NYT/WSJ News

    By Vagabum
    I love the clean layout and ad free experience. I like to read a lot of news. The curated articles are nice. But that is all the catalog you can access from NYT/WSJ without buying additional subscriptions to those sources ditectly. If I bought those subscriptions I would have far less use for scribd. I am ok with a large cap of total articles read, but not on limited article access (and definitely not both). Give me a full access subscription bundle and I am willing to pay $100 a year. I will never buy multiple subscriptions. Also annoying is that sharing an article from a source like NYT shares only a short (cut off) Scribd domain article and not the original article. So friends are even less likely to read the full article than if the article was shared from from the source's own Facebook page (with so many free reads per user). There are share workarounds from the source but it adds some hassle. I think this is not the experience I had hoped so I have cancelled my Scribd subscription. The first company that does a full access bundle under $100/year will get my money.
