Scribd app gets updated with revamped look and more

The Scribd app for iPhone and iPad, which give users access to hundreds of thousands of ebooks for one monthly fee, just got a new version published in the App Store, with a number of new features and a redesign of the app itself.

Here's a quick look at the change log for the app, which also got updated for Android today and was just released for Windows 8.1 and Windows Phone. The new look of the app matches the design on the Scibd website:

  • A redesigned book description page that includes reader reviews and related books
  • Horizontal browsing from book to book in collections
  • Streamlined management of your Library -- tap the new "+" sign on books to save them to your device, add them to your library, or add them to a collection.
  • A brand new color palette and all-new fonts throughout the app

As of this writing, the App Store page for Scribd shows the old version but we suspect that will change later today. What do you think of the newly revamped Scribd app?
