Scribd has been in development overdrive the last few months, revising the core reading experience in their seminal iOS and Android apps. They have also been quietly refining their first offering for Windows Phone 8. All mobile applications now have a unified experience which will immerse users who have multiple phones and tablets in the household.
With the launch of the Windows app, paired with existing apps for iOS, Android, Kindle Fire and Nook tablets, Scribd has been downloaded more than 6 million times — placing it on more devices in more countries than any other subscription book service. This latest endeavor is part of the company’s overarching global commitment to getting people to read more.
“Scribd’s mission is simple,” said Julie Haddon, Vice President of Marketing at Scribd. “We’re empowering people to read more. We’re celebrating this milestone of launching apps on six platforms with a new campaign called ‘Read More.'”
The updates for Android and new Windows app are available now and can be download from Good e-Reader and the Windows app store. The update for iOS will be live in the Apple App Store in the coming days.
