Scribd Gets A Makeover

Social publishing site Scribd has been revamped and the iPhone app have been updated as well. The idea behind the redesign is to make it easier for new users to navigate while at the same time making it more engaging to long-time users.

TechCrunch explains the update: “The website was previously dominated by your social feed, showing you the documents uploaded and read by other users that you’re following. Now the social feed has been pushed off to the side, and in its place there’s a feed of ‘featured’ content, which has been hand-picked by Scribd.”

The latest iPhone update includes the ability to bookmark documents for reading when offline. The update should hit the company’s Android app soon.
