App Reviews

  • Limited choice

    By Alfjrovg
    I also loved this APP at first but now find that most of the books I want to listen to are not available until next month. It certainly does seem like there are limits to the number of recent/new books you can listen to monthly, despite their claims otherwise. When I called, the customer service rep pretty much said “ I’m sorry, that’s how it works.” I guess I’m more used to Audible and their fantastic customer service. I’m going to give it another month in the hopes this will change if enough people complain about the false advertising of unlimited listening. On a side note, I also find the reverse/ forward functions to be very slow and irritating to use but am hopeful that a bug fix in a future update will improve these functions.
  • Books suddenly become unavailable!

    By 7 month user zxy
    I originally thought this was a great app with unlimited access for a flat fee. But you line up your reading list and get excited about your next book and then it’s suddenly unavailable for a month! Not easy for anyone in a book club when the book needs to be read by a certain date. So I have to buy it to get access through another service. I was going to recommend this to my friends after first signing up but then this happened. Also beware because many books I chose ended up being abridged versions which, as an avid reader, I have no interest in.
  • 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 bad

    By GammaGyrl
    Three stars for the false claim of unlimited. Checked website to learn about about unlimited, had to scroll to the bottom of page to see there are restrictions then, go to user agreement page to see your access (I.e. being able to actually listen/read) is restricted if you “consume an usual volume”. That IS NOT UNLIMITED The price is a great selling point, but do a better job managing expectations. IT IS NOT ‘Read Without Limits’ it SHOULD say ‘Read With (a) Few Limits’
  • Not unlimited books like they say

    By Aschleiger
    I really like this app but like the reviews I’ve read the audio books really don’t seem to be unlimited. I’m wanting to listen to a certain authors series in order written. I can’t because I only gave a few available this month and have to wait till next month for the rest. This is frustrating. It’s really about the only thing I don’t like about the app.
