Document-sharing service Scribd, the world's largest social publishing site with more than 75 million monthly readers, launches an iPhone and web content-reading app. Will its UI and design help it compete in a crowded field?
Why would you share your documents with the world? Well, Scribd's CEO, Trip Adler has the answer: by sharing documents you make them social objects that a community can add onto. He gives us a demo and talks to us about how he got funded and how he is working to build a new kind of business all around the sharing of documents. He demonstrates how people are putting a variety of documents up from poetry, book proposals, resumes, and more.
