Introducing Scribd 3.0 for iPad & iPhone

We’re incredibly excited to announce the release of Scribd 3.0 – currently available on iPad and iPhone.

Scribd has always helped connect authors, publishers and readers to a massive library of engaging content. While our website has remained a hub for these books, documents and publications, today’s update features a redesign that places the emphasis on better mobile browsing, content discovery and reading.

Same Scribd. Improved Design. Far Sleeker.

Here is a rundown of some of the best features for both the new versions:

Faster, Friendlier –  This design strives to connect the Scribd homepage experience more closely with the mobile experience. Feel free to browse, explore and read our vast library of content. With improved navigation for the iPad app, it’s never been easier to explore Scribd and your personal library.

The new Scribd app mirrors the look and feel of our homepage.

Browse Tons of Content – Have you seen us lately? More than just documents, much of our content in the mobile apps is centered around categories ranging from Creative Writing to Science Fiction. Come back often, we are always adding new publications and categories every single day!

Science Fiction is just one of the many categories of publications you can select from.

Improved Reading – We are most excited about how this update addresses a drastically improved reading experience. Now, the contents of your favorite book have been optimized for both the iPhone and iPad. Additionally, you can adjust your preferred reading experience by changing the text font, size and color. Reading with Scribd has never been better. With offline file management, it is much easier to save  books to your library to read later.

    That is great.
    I have a Samsung Galaxy Tab2 and what I miss from the mobile version of the website is the ability to click “Browse” and then filter by “Language” :( I really miss this feature a lot ….

    Withh havin so much content and articles do you ever run into any problems oof
    plagorism or copyright violation? My website has a
    lot of unique content I’ve either written myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it
    is popping it up all over the internet without my authorization.
    Do you know any ways to help prevent content from being ripped off?
    I’d genuinely appreciate it.

    I comment when I especially enkoy a article on a website or
    I have something to contribute to the conversation. Usually it’s
    caused by the passion displayed in the post I browsed.
    And on this article Introducing Scribd 3.0 for iPad & iPhone | The Scribd Blog.
    I was excited enough to create a thought 😛 I actually
    do have 2 questions for you if it’s okay. Could it be only me or does it look like like some of these comments look like lerft by brain dead
    individuals? 😛 And, if you are posting at other online
    social sites, I would lioe to keep up with angthing fresh yoou have to post.
    Would you make a list every one of your communal pages like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?
