  • Great selection but availability issues

    I have been listening to about a dozen different authors over the past 3-4 years I’ve been subscribed here. Originally I was extremely happy with the unlimited plan they had. When they switched to the credit based plan I wasn’t so happy but I re-listened some of the ones I’ve already heard. When they swapped back I was happy to hear it but now I’m extremely unhappy because their “unlimited books and audiobooks” has limits. I am in the middle of a series, just finished one book and ready to start the next and see the “available on xx/xx/2018” at the top of my selection. Ok that’s less than a week away I will wait. The next month 2 weeks past my payment it happens again but it over 3 weeks till it’s available. Now this month I just made my payment last week and am getting that message again. I have contacted support and get the runaround about availability and access but that’s not my problem I pay my money for UNLIMITED and expect it.
  • “Soon available”

    For the most part, I really love this app. I work at a bookstore and I still recommend it to people. The last couple weeks, though, have gotten frustrating. For example, I had a book downloaded and about to be read this morning- and now it’s an “available soon” book? It seems completely random. I understand that with contracts and stuff, some books aren’t available right away, but why take away one that WAS available and tell me I can’t read it until next month?
  • Limited choice

    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!

    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.

  • 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.
  • Sooo disappointing.

    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.

    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

    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 😡😡😡
