I Love LibriVox, have been listening to them for years. I finally downloaded the app to listen off line. It is wonderful to have the great classics available for free for easy listening while doing chores or going to sleep. I find it especially nice as I am a very slow reader and lose my flow easily. I also listen to books with some elderly ladies whose eyesight isn't good anymore and have trouble reading themselves. I am REALLY HAPPY there is a sleep timer which will turn off the recording after awhile, or you can shake it to keep it playing a little longer.
audio issue i want my offline audio data on my ext SD card folks. This is lollipop, so please edit that XML for the apk and give me a popup dialog to make my choice NOT misleading Preferences "SD Card" ... Marshmallow? Nougat? Unchanged after update: goes frm 2 to 1. SD Card != Ext SD !!
Very nice features. Everything that I thought should be here is here: rewind 10 seconds, stop playing after a certain time interval (good for listening to go to sleep), playing while device is locked (achem Youtube). Only criticism is that the interface could be more streamlined.
Invaluable This app is the best companion for solitary road trips. It doesn't hassle with cumbersome subscriptions, or anything else that would make it difficult for a forgetful young man like myself to handle. The app is user friendly notwithstanding the issues when one isn't connected to the internet. Good job. Just please keep this around!
Wonderful! I'm a long-time subscriber to Audible but when I started having trouble with their app, I looked another. I can't believe this is free! From the books I've listened to, the readers don't sound like professional actors doing individual voices for each character, but who cares? I don't sound like that in my head when I actually read. I'm thrilled to have another option. :) Thank you so much!
Too slow No year of publication in description. LibriVox readers read too slow, falling way short of normal actors. You would think speed control. . You would think... Free, human reading, is a breakthrough. Except the very rich, most book listeners simply cannot afford the typical payment per hour scheme. The goal is to make money while you listen, not loose money.
