How do I enjoy Scribd without an internet connection?

There's nothing like reading or listening to a good book. Scribd knows that, but Scribd also knows you're not always going to be connected to the internet in order to read to your heart's content. So never fear! Even during those offline times, you'll still be able to enjoy Scribd's collection.

To store content on your device:

1. Tap on cover of the book you wish to save, you'll be dropped into the book's summary page.
2. Look for a "Save for Later" button. Tap on this to add it to your Saved titles.
3. Once a book is Saved, tap the "Store Offline" button. If you haven't used a Monthly Credit for it you'll be prompted to do so now.
4. To access these saved books, go to your Saved titles by tapping on the bookmark icon on the bottom and then tap "Stored Offline" in the top of the screen.

After that, active internet connection or not, you'll be able to enjoy the book from beginning to end. To find the list of all the titles you've saved, simply access your Saved titles, select the 'Stored Offline' section and find the title you've stored any time of day. Remember, though: Books stored on your device can only be opened through the app and we don't permit access to a stored book's file.

If you're finished with a book or need to free up some space on your device you can delete a book from your storage - you'll be able to pull it up from your Saved again at any time to store it if need be! You can remove content from your device via your Saved titles. To do this, go to your Saved by tapping the bookmark icon, located at the bottom edge of your screen. Once at Saved, tap the "Stored Offline" section near the top of the screen. There, tap on the three vertical dots to the right of the title that you'd like to remove, and select "Remove From Device" from the menu that appears. A prompt will appear asking you to confirm your decision and the title will be removed from your device's memory. Remember, you'll still find it in your Saved titles if you ever want to add it for offline reading again!                         

If you're having trouble storing or reading a title on your device, don't be shy! Send a message to the customer service team and they'll see what the trouble may be and look into fixing the problem for you.
