Scribd Unveils Everand App to Streamline User Experience, Segregates Content Across Three Platforms
In a strategic pivot, Scribd has just rolled out an all-new app, Everland, which will serve as the go-to platform for ebooks, audiobooks, magazines, podcasts, news articles, and even sheet music. This move separates their vast content library into distinct categories across three different products.
Publisher’s Lunch is reporting that Scribd.com and its newly updated app will continue to focus on hosting community-uploaded documents and other research material. Meanwhile, SlideShare remains an independent entity in the Scribd universe.
Trip Adler, Scribd’s co-founder and CEO, Celebrates the Transition
Adler couldn’t contain his excitement over this new chapter in Scribd’s story. He stated, “For nearly two decades, we’ve been a one-stop-shop for all sorts of content. But we’ve noticed a pattern: users typically flock to either ebooks and audiobooks or lean towards documents and research. So, we thought, why not make it easier for both? This restructuring helps our readers find what they’re into more quickly, while also giving our publishing partners’ content the spotlight it deserves.”
Why This Matters
- User Experience: Tailoring content delivery can make the user experience more enjoyable and efficient.
- Discoverability: It’ll be easier to discover fresh content that aligns with personal interests.
- Publishing Partners: A more focused approach means published content gets the visibility and engagement it warrants.
So, whether you’re a die-hard bookworm or a data-driven researcher, Scribd’s new ecosystem aims to serve you better. The changes should lead to a more personalized, streamlined browsing and reading experience, which sounds like a win-win for everybody involved.
