read, read and keep reading

2018-08-23

Pros

You can also search your favorite reading not only by content, but also by the language of your choice.

Cons

the bad point, according to my point of view, is that it has no integration with any ereader, which from my point of view is a point against, since it is certainly much more comfortable, and healthy for the eyes, access and read from digital reader to be reading from the computer, tablet or mobile.

If you love reading then you should use Scribd

2017-11-30

Pros

Downloading the mobile application you will carry your personal collection of books in your pocket.

Cons

Maybe avoid forcing the user to enter their payment information from the moment you want to try the free trial because some users forget to cancel the recurring payment if they do not want to continue using the service.

Everything will depend on what you want to obtain

2017-11-16

Pros

I do not really know how the paid version works so I can not comment on it.

Cons

the bad thing is that it is something purely consultative, should offer some kind of method of sharing, even if it is very limited.

This is where I got all my solutions for class

2018-05-11

Pros

Scribd allowed me to search up possible resources for school I could use, including audiobooks that pertain towards a certain class I'd be taking.

Cons

Students are poor...unfortunately not everyone can afford the service. It'd be nice if there could be a few more freebies for newcomers.

The kind of application that is needed. I would have fully tested it if they had not asked for my credit card information.

2017-11-30

Pros

It contains books, audiobooks, magazines, news, documents, music sheets (thank you).

Cons

One thing I didn't like very much is the way books are diagrammed inside. But I'm a graphic designer and I know I'm a little bit picky on that... I did not use the free trial because they asked for my credit card information and I have read some problems with charges after the trial period, so I didn't feel safe. It's a free trial, I recommend withdrawing that requirement.
