Scribd, eBook Subscription Service, Launches Kindle Fire App

scribdBook subscription service Scribd is introducing an app for the Kindle Fire. The app comes as the company is celebrating three million downloads of its Android app. In addition, the company revealed that mobile app usage is up 5x from December 2012 and that Scribd was accessed on 11 million unique mobile devices in December 2013.

The Kindle app comes from user demand. According to the company, more than 100,000 users asked for an app that is compatible with their Kindle Fire device in the last couple of months.

The new app means that Scribd can support all Kindle Fire models. The service does not have an app on any eInk based Kindles, because these devices don’t support third party applications.
