A simple app that gets the job done through a wonderful service. I love that Libro partners with indie bookstores! The app is a little bare bones when compared with others but it has all the necessities including the ability to increase the playback speed.
Love the libro.fm service but this app leaves out key benefits. No direct downloads. This is listen-only. If you want to listen on another, more feature-rich app, you have to download from the website. Also, no access to the store to browse for or buy more books. I'll stick to the mobile site.
Playback volume is low relative to other apps, which leads to the need to constantly adjust when switching to the app.
I listen to audiobooks daily, and always from my phone. I love that Libro.fm partners with independent bookstores. The app also has a feature to listen at different speeds, which is good because I like to listen at 2x speed. So glad they're starting a monthly membership!
Needs Improvement I love audio books and I love having an option other than audible since I work for an independent bookstore but this app could use some improvements. I am unable to pause this app with my headset which can be a real headache to have to unlock my phone any time I would like to pause. It also seems to freeze my phone up after a few minutes and I am unable to even unlock my phone and I end up having to restart it. Please fix if you can! My phone is a Galaxy S5 btw.
Great app, excellent customer service.
* headset play/pause button now works
* closing app when no audio is playing now closes notification
