Couldn’t survive without it!

I literally couldn’t survive without Scribd. I’ve always been a prolific reader and relied on libraries to sustain my need for copious reading matter. But, four years ago I moved abroad, and Scribd now provides nearly all my reading material. I must admit that, if I hear about a book and look to see if Scribd have it, they often don’t, which is always disappointing, and then I often have to buy it on Kindle. But, if I put in a subject which interests me, I’m usually astonished at the amount of good quality books that Scribd have. For the last few months I’ve been reading about racism, the civil rights movement and the history of slavery, and the amount of books available on these topics is astounding. Thank you, Scribd, from the bottom of my heart! You bring my joy every day!

I subscribed because I listen to a lot of audiobooks, and wanted a borrowing service rather than an offering like audible. However this isn’t truly unlimited, in this case unlimited just means that there is always something you can listen to not that you can always listen to anything in the library whenever you want to, and there is no indication of what your monthly limit is or when you are going to hit it, so having listened to the first few books in a series I suddenly couldn’t listen to any more until the next billing period started, so clearly some audiobooks are limited. This alone might not have been an issue if it was clear what the monthly limit was and which audiobooks counted towards this limit, but there is no indication until you try to listen to something to be faced with “available soon” banners on most books

The search function is dismal, I often have to try 2 or 3 different search terms to find what I want, and have often resorted to finding something else written by the same author to click through to their author page to then find what I want. Series aren’t linked in any way either so if you have finished one book you have to go through the dismal search function again to find the next book in the series.

It’s also disappointing that it is not compatible with CarPlay as I listen to books when driving, there is an option to link to waze, but again this functionality didn’t work on the CarPlay version of the waze app either.

I just used your amazing app and I would prefer to switch from kindle unlimited and audible if you add one great feature which is lacking in your app. While listening a book we can’t visualise the reading or ebook that is quite frustrating. In kindle unlimited you can download the books and also make it companion with listening which is much easier and better way of learning. I got the subscription of your app but due to lack of this feature I have to end my subscription. In your app I can only read or I can switch to listening only. In kindle unlimited we can use both features at a time.

Otherwise your app has better features and magazines and podcasts selections

Thanks so much for the 5-star review, Samuel! We're so glad you're enjoying our app. Though we do not currently have the option to read and listen at the same time, we would be glad to pass along your request! This is a request we have had many times in the past and we are hopeful we'll see it added in a future release. For now, thanks so much again for taking the time to review us and we hope you have a great rest of your day! - EC
