App Reviews

  • Great selection - at first

    By Sherply derply
    So first of all, I’m very grateful for this app. I use it during work - basically just mowing all day - to listen to audiobooks, and they help make the time fly. I haven’t had any playback errors where I lose my place, but if I do go to something else and come back after a while, the app is likely to have restarted itself. This means I’ll have to go, open up the audiobook again, then it won’t load, so I’ll have to go to the table of contents, restart the chapter, and fast forward to where I was. It’s a tedious process. A wall that I’ve run in to lately is that most of the books that I want to listen to, best sellers (Red Rising, Sea of Rust, etc.), aren’t available until next month? Some of them I’m fairly sure I’ve looked at before and they’ve been available a day earlier. Now, maybe it’s a subscription thing, where you only get x amount of “premium audiobooks” to listen to each cycle. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve listened to a fair number of works already, and I’ver been very happy with them as I would have had to pay much more normally. However, I find it unfair for the app to boast about its “reading without limits” without making it clear, somewhere, that there are in fact limits.

    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.
  • Was awesome until I found out it’s not truly “unlimited”

    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!
  • technical issues/not really unlimited!

    I love listening to books throughout the day - much better than TV. I have been long time subscriber to Scribd, but the technical problems - such as shutting down randomly,and losing my place when signing back in (just to name a few), made me a minimal user of the audiobooks. However, when I saw that Scribd became unlimited - I was excited and started listening again. Oi!!! For someone that likes audiobooks, this app leaves a lot to be desired. It randomly shuts down still, and since I have been listening more with this app - it has become almost intolerable! After shutting down over and over and over today - I just gave up and went back to other audiobook app. In addition - after listening to a several books, I went to look for the next book in a series, and found that I have to wait until my month renews to be able to select the next one. I thought this was an anomaly, until it happened again this month. That is when I realized that I am barred from selecting most audiobooks now - until my month renews. Deceptive practices? Should be called - “Unlimited - Not”.
  • Great App!

    I love this app so much. My daughter and I compared several reading apps before trying this one. I am quite happy with it so far, and so is she. It uses very little battery life, and with the different screen color settings, I can read easily at night without hurting my eyes or disturbing my husband. The price is fairly reasonable for the amount of books you get per month, but I do wish I could either trade my audiobook credit for another book credit or gift my audiobook credit to my daughter, since I doubt I’ll use them and she wishes she had more. Haha. Other than that, I’m very happy with our choice. I can find just about any author that I search for. Oh, and the unlimited sheet music is just an added bonus for me! I’ve found music that I used to play when I was younger, and newer music as well. I’m sure that this app is one that I’m going to keep a subscription on for a long while.
  • I used to love it...

    I loved this app and raved about it to anyone who would listen and was using audible about how great the unlimited books were. Unfortunately, in the past 2 months, a “bug”, or more likely rate limiting, ruined it. After listening to 3 books in a 1 month period, everything in my saved was labeled unavailable until the next pay cycle. Thats disappointing. Things in the public domain are still available, of course, but i could (and do) use librevox for those. I have a scribd subscription for contemporary things. Its really disappointing that one of my favorite apps is suddenly disappointing. I get that its expensive to have all of these titles available, and I’d happily pay double what I do now if it meant you would get *actually* unlimited audiobooks, but as it is now, I dont know. Its still a better deal than their competitors, I just wish they wouldn’t call their service unlimited because it’s not. Maybe this is actually a bug, like their FAQ says, but its been doing this for the past 3 months so I don't think it is. Maybe its time to look for a new audiobook provider.
  • Soooo much better than Audible or any other book subscription service

    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.

    Couldn’t live without Scribd. I used to just borrow books from the library but got tired of waiting on hold for books I wanted to read. Occasionally I will still find books that are not available but that is rare. The selection has been amazing ranging from some of my favorite historical fiction or fantasy to non-fiction and reference material. I was surprised to find a great selection of SQL SAS books that have helped me develop some more technical skills. I am able to download and read books offline and to date I’ve never had any issues with syncing. I can pickup where I left off in an audiobook or ebook on different devices. The subscription has been worth the cost. I will happily give up a few Starbucks coffees a month to access the amazing selection of books that are offered.

    UPDATE: With version 8.5.0, it seems the problem has been fixed. There are still some bugs but I can easily live with them. I love the problem this app solves: it allows me to explore new ideas, new worlds, and to emerge a bigger person. Listening to audiobooks this way is life changing. That said, the app consistently crashes during audiobook playback. I’ve tried everything I can to make it work (changing things in settings, clearing caches, airplane mode, downloading content to offline, and more) but the app almost always crashes after a few minutes and then upon resuming sometimes loses its place. What’s more perplexing is that on occasion it will work without crashing. I’ve reached out via email with “Attention James” with no response whatsoever. It seems like they post that at the end of every negative review as PR. I can not recommend this app until they let us know what is going on and that they are aware that more paying customers than just myself are unable to enjoy their service because of this issue. Look at the other 1 star reviews and then imagine how many others who haven’t reviewed the app have the same issue. Please fix this, Scribd!! And despite the issue, thanks for working on this life changing idea.
  • Loving it so far! Only one request...

    I have been an audible member for many years but with rent, bills, other expenses it has been increasingly difficult for me to keep my membership. IN COME ScribD like a shining book superhero complete with cape! 😀 This app is absolutely incredible and the price for the service cannot be beat. I have also been pleasantly surprised at the audiobook selection and narrators for each audiobook I have listen to. Many of them have been narrators I have already come to know and love 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻 I only have one request: I am blind and use the screen reader voiceover on my iPhone and iPad. Unfortunately to read e-books it is not accessible using this app. Pages cannot be turned. Please fix this. Other than that I could not be happier! Pretty sure I will be ditching my Audible subscription and using ScribD.
