1. Once you subscribe, you get access to millions of digital files right within the iOS app. 2. You can download and enjoy unlimited number of ebooks and audiobooks per month.
Scribd is a refreshingly different subscription-based digital content platform.
If you are looking for Audible alternatives, you should sign up for Scribd and test the platform during the 30-day free trial.
For one flat monthly fee starting from $8.99, Scribd offers unlimited access to different kinds of digital content: ebooks, audiobooks, newspapers, and magazines.
And the Scribd app for iPad and iPhone enables you to delve into anything you want, no matter the format. It could be the newest audiobook or a featured article from The New York Times. It means the app is more versatile than Google Play or Kobo, as these apps don’t give you access to newspapers and magazines.
The platform claims paid subscribers can listen to an unlimited number of audiobooks per month.
However, sometimes you will have to face this: “Occasionally, we have to limit the titles that you’re able to access within a specific content library in a 30-day period.”
Benefits: Ebooks, audiobooks, and magazines in a single app; unlimited number of downloads for subscribers Compatibility: iPad, iPhone Price: Free; subscriptions from $8.99/month

Manage Your Day-to-Day: Build Your Routine, Find Your Focus, and Sharpen Your Creative Mind
by 99U & Jocelyn K. Glei
The world we work in today is not the world of Michelangelo, of Marie Curie, of Ernest Hemingway, or even of Paul Rand. It is a new world, empowered and entranced by the rapid-fire introduction of new technologies—a world where our metaphysical front door is always open, where anyone can whisper in our ear, where a “room of one’s own” no longer means you’re all alone.
Creative minds are exceedingly sensitive to the buzz and whir of the world around them, and we now have to contend with a constant stream of chirps, pings, and alerts at all hours of the day. As these urgent demands tug us this way and that, it becomes increasingly difficult to find a centered space for creativity.
Taking stock of this challenging new landscape, 99U’s Manage Your Day-to-Day assembles insights around four key skill sets you must master to succeed: building a rock-solid daily routine, taming your tools (before they tame you), finding focus in a distracted world, and sharpening your creative mind.
Dedicating a chapter to each of these focus areas, we invited a group of seasoned thought leaders and creatives—Seth Godin, Stefan Sagmeister, Tony Schwartz, Gretchen Rubin, Dan Ariely, Linda Stone, Steven Pressfield, and others—to share their expertise. Our goal was to come at the problems and struggles of this new world of work from as many angles as possible.
Because we each have a unique set of strengths, weaknesses, and sensitivities, it is impossible to prescribe a single approach that will work for everyone. The right solution for you will always be personal—an idiosyncratic combination of strategies based on your own work demands, habits, and preferences.
The real danger is not that computers will begin to think like men, but that men will begin to think like computers.
