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.

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.

Reading with Scribd has never been better. With offline file management, it is much easier to save  books to your library to read later.
