I've had a recent situation that has caused me to become visionelie impaired and am new to audiobooks. So far I love this app!!! I have only read a few books so far but I am very impressed with the app. I like how it lets me fast forward rewind and pause so I don't lose my place. I also like how I can exit the app and come back and be in the same spot where I left. It's easy to navigate through and have a wide selection of books. I think this app has earned a permanent spot on my home screen LOL
This app is great if you're trying to get into Classic novels. There's a great selection and many great actors voicing the books. My only problem is that many of the audioplays are overdramatic and that some books switch readers halfway through, but that depends on the version of the book you listen to. I also use this class a lot for English class, since I don't usually have the time to read.
I really enjoy this app. I've been listening to books in the horror genre, and can recommend LibraVox to anyone who wants to read more books but doesn't have the time to do so. That being said, there is an issue I have with streaming books. Not sure if it relates to my carrier as I usually have great signal. While listening to audio books, if I receive a text message, email, etc., the audio starts skipping. I have to close out the app, and reopen it to get the feed to correct. THIS IS PARTICULARLY BOTHERSOME WHILE DRIVING, AS I HAVE TO TURN THE STEREO OFF, THEREBY NEGATING MY ENJOYMENT OF THE BOOK I WAS LISTENING TO. Sorry for the caps, just frustrated. Anyway, I do recommend this app. Free is free, and most of the readers featured on LibraVox are quality.
Old books but other than that it's perfect..!! May be just add rewind and forward options...! Update : Thanks for your response. My apologies but I was referring to the interface on Android Auto as I listen to books while driving. There I couldn't find a way to rewind or forward. Please add that functionality or if I missed it please do let me know how can I do this. Thanks again
Lovely free app This app is relatively simple to use. Bookmarking is delightfully easy. The user interface isn't bogged down with unnecessary options. Additionally the ads do not get in the way or distract, which is a nice change from some other apps. I do have difficulty downloading multiple books without a cue. If there were some way to chose multiple books for download, this would be a 5 star app. There are great readers to enjoy here, and some books have more than one reading, which I consider simply brilliant
Love the app! The only issue I have is that occasionally while listening and I get a notification/alert/anything the audio will start skipping, sometimes it will go away after a few minutes but usually requires you to move your current listening spot to reset it... weird.
