I love this app! I've found so many new favourites and there are some amazingly talented readers. The Favourites and Recent sections are really helpful, and it's easy to search for similar books or others read by the same reader or written by the same author. The only issue I have with the app is when I pause a book, exit the app and come back to it and press play, it usually doesn't start for 5-30 seconds. Sometimes it skips ahead to the next chapter, so I have to go to Contents and find my place again.
Almost perfect... Just what I have been hoping for. Classic novels to keep me company. Thank you Librivox volunteers. Makes housework pass by hearing a good story. One thing, hence the 4 stars, if a reset of a device is necessary you loose you favorites list and you have to start over. I thought it was connected to a Google+ account and could save that info? (Looks like the issue was fixed :-) so 5 stars!) Keep on improving your great app!
Keeps crashing Love the app, has good books and a good set up, plus the sleep timer is nice. Whenever I try to listen to a book recently though, it'll play for 5 or 10 minutes then just stop - it won't be at the end of a chapter or anything. Getting annoying. If and when that is fixed, I'll reinstall it.
Make Audiobooks Great Again I downloaded this to listen to books on a road trip, but every few minutes a Donald Trump ad would interrupt. Worse I had to turn the volume up full blast to hear the recordings but the commercials are louder so it would blare that nonsense over my speakers.
Fantastic app and content! They've killed the bugs in the interface, IME. And I finally found, hidden in the settings, that it's possible to delete downloaded titles without de-installing the app. It's nice to do that from time to time since the interface gets cluttered with titles you'll probably never revisit. Librivox's content is a treasure house! To me Librivox represents the apex of the collective action made possible by the Internet.
LibriVox full of Second Chances LibriVox has given me opportunities for 'do overs!' All the books assigned in high school and college. All the classics. The books that Friends and Friends of Friends call a 'great read.' Books that teach me of the many things I've wanted to learn : They are here at LibriVox. Download is free. A must have for students: especially those with learning disabilities.
