Ratings and Reviews
I thought about titling this ALL YE LIBRIVOX LISTENERS REJOICE! But this app has more than just librivox. Sweetness. It is also a very stable audiobook player which has some really important features.
First it downloads the ENTIRE book not single chapters. That may not seem too important but just try listening to long books like War and Peace or The three Musketeers downloaded one chapter at a time. It'll drive you nuts. It also doesn't crash when you you turn your device off or open other apps with the book playing in the background. I can't tell you how many times other apps have done that to me. This doesn't lose it's place. That will save a ton of headaches. It has the full librivox catalog and podiobooks! Topping on the cake is the sleep timer which if you fall asleep to audiobooks like I do is really nice.
I didn't think I was going to get this app because I got the free version to crash but that only seems to be for the free version.
Fabulous New Look !!!!!!! Love it!!!!
Beautiful update ! The sleek new presentation feels like a completely new app. Visually appealing and easy to navigate. Kudos to the developers.
Still keeping my previous review comments: "Why pay to listen to books when thousands of FREE classics are available in one app? I enjoy using this app every day. Wide selection and mostly good readers. So many ways to make a selection - by topic, author, date of release, genre, or reader. A must-have for everyone who likes a "good read"."
Recently (July 2017) I had my first difficult with the app. True to the excellence of the app, I received a quick response to my questions and prompt follow up thereafter. With so many other apps no response is ever received. Audiobooks customer support is quick and reliable. My thanks to tech support staff !
Librivox is a true gem
I have used Librivox for over a year now and it has been consistently excellent. It has opened doors to good literature and good readers that I never would have found otherwise. I particularly want to recommend the reader listed as "Xe Sands" who reads Edna Ferber's "Buttered Side Down." In the recording she announces her name as what sounds like "Madiera" and she is truly professional quality. Her voice is pleasant, her expression flawless, and her accents for the dialogue of the many different characters is convincing and just plain fun. I wish she would read more!
