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 !
A True Joy
I’m disabled and housebound with severe chronic pain. Until I got sick I loved to read . Now it is difficult for me to focus on reading a book. This could have been the severest blow of all — I could never afford to buy enough audiobooks to keep me well read. But lucky for me I found Audiobooks HQ. I LOVE listening to the books and stories from Libravox. Such an immense variety of books! And Audiobooks is a great app. I use it everyday. If there were anything annoying in this app I would certainly switch to something else. This app is great. My only wish is that it would store a backup of the favs in iCloud. When I upgrade my iPad I lose all my favorites. Since I only swap out iPads every 3-4 years, this is a very small issue.
