  • Great app... Feb 6, 2020

    By sky_blue02
    There’s a bug with elements getting moved over from the right by about 1cm, and sometimes the icons are incorrect when showing which chapters are downloading, but there are no ads, it works both online and off (if you download the audiobooks), the controls are simple and the big buttons make it easy (meaning a lot more safe) to use if I’m driving. I hope the bugs get fixed. They have seemed to linger. I also hope they make it so artwork gets saved for offline use when downloading an audiobook. Right now, it shows a generic cover when listening offline. Please don’t take my constructive criticism as a condemnation. This is a great app! I use it all the time, which is testimony to that. I’m very happy with it. I’d like to see some fixes done, but I’m also very grateful and happy with it as it is. Thank you to the developers for creating it and also for making sure to note “no ads” when issuing an update. I have had other developers put in ads without warning me and it’s really upset me. None of that here! Just honest updates. Thank you!

    I paid for this app twice. You can buy it as an in-app purchase on the ad-supported version, but it doesn't add to your family library. This one on Google Play does. Although annoyed, I think it was worth it to support this free audiobook community. You can find great classic titles that are often overlooked by pro readers because they won't appeal to the masses. Check out for example great performances of Orlando Furioso and Clausewitz's On War.

  • Mostly great. Dec 27, 2018

    By user1234xyz
    After trying several different LibriVox apps, I keep coming back to this one, which does a good job. My only real gripe is that it doesn’t start each new chapter right at the beginning, but a sentence or so in. The only other small thing is the pop-up red and blue chapter download progress bars are, well, kind of ugly. I’d like to see them integrated as shaded backgrounds into the chapter entries or something. But that’s just the designer in me talking. Other than that, a great app that covers all the bases well! (Definitely worth the $1.99 to get rid of the audio ads between chapters)

    Great app for the community. It's fast, easy to use and free. I like I can turn off search for paid books and they have family friendly settings. I've been using the free version for years so I'm happy to support them by buying the pro version.

  • Great app Jul 6, 2019

    By Antcheetahowl
    This is a great app that reads to us as we drive around town or to bring entertainment to mindless tasks like laundry, dishes, and cleaning bathrooms. Spend the $2 to save yourself from the annoying commercials or to keep your kids from accessing the web without parental controls by clicking on the ads 😬. Improvements: that there are two rating systems for books. First, for the content of the book and secondly for the quality of the reader(s). Also that it can somehow date stamp when I finish a book.

    Please add a option to sync bookmarks between devices cross platform. I have your app installed on my iPhone and android phone. If I am listening to a book on one phone it would be great to be able to continue the book on another phone. It would be a great feature. Thank you for your time.

  • Hardly works on iPhone, & compromised on iPad Nov 11, 2018

    By Cjmclr
    On iPhone: something happened so half the image of the book shows; unable to access timer on iPhone. On iPad I can set the timer, but it doesn’t work and then disappears but keeps playing. This is important as I had been setting it to play as I go to bed and it really helps me eventually go to sleep! In the past I went back to the last I heard and start there again. But now, if it keeps playing all night it wakes me up again!

    Too bad the paid version isn't an improvement over the free one. The most annoying problem is that it stops at EVERY chapter! So if you're listening to something with a hundred chapters, that are just a few minutes long, you spend all your time waking up your phone ... opening the app ... and hitting the play button ... which is insane. The book I'm trying to listen to is 17 hours long! Fix it please!

  • So disappointed because I love LibriVox! Nov 10, 2018

    By Podcastermom
    Just got the pro version for my iPhone 7+. As soon as I click on a book, I see a piece of the book cover, and have no controls. When I turn the phone sideways, I can adjust where in the chapter it is, but to change chapters, I have to exit the app and restart. No other settings are available. I tried deleting the app and downloading it again. All that did was lose all of my favorited books.

    Had nothing but problems since paying for this version rather than just using the ad-supported one. It's constantly freezing and crashing to the point of having to go into my phones settings and force the app to stop just to get it to play any audio. I love the concept, but the execution is not cutting it. Been using it a few days now... Well, trying to. I spend more time fighting with the app than I do actually listening to books.

  • 4.5 stars..... Jan 11, 2020

    By Wknitter12x12
    Love this app! BUT.....maybe it’s my small iPhone SE, but the elapsed time is not completely displayed, nor is the chapter currently playing. But the most annoying thing is that when I go back to the app after being away (even if I didn’t close it, but just switch over momentarily to another), the book chapter I was listening to doesn’t come up onscreen, and I have to hunt for it. It’s in the “recent” section, but not at the top or bottom (in case of sorting). Other than that, love the concept, love the app (much better than trying to listen from website). THANK YOU LibriVox and LibriVox volunteers! Blessings!

  • Priceless resource! Nov 21, 2018

    By Sitterwoman23
    It is unbelievable to me that I can listen to many first person journals and accounts, also classical works on LibriVox- for free! I can’t say enough good things about LibriVox. The only drawback is that the volunteer readers can be uneven in quality. Some are amazing, like the person that reads John Muir’s early journals. Others perform readings providing only a perfunctory performance or speed through without any nuance at all. So many wonderful readers outweigh the poor ones. All in all a fabulous resource! Thank you so much!

  • Love this app but for one thing Aug 30, 2020

    By ThePowerwriter
    And that is that it does not fully sync with other iOS devices. There is an online account. But it does not retrain your book or place where you ended in all but the last device you listened to. So you have to relisten or try and find your place. But if you only use it on one device it is great A bit overpriced at $4 I think.

    It's pretty good. Two things could be improved: 1. App frequently resets to the beginning of the chapter. 2. I wish there was a way to change the speed of the playback. One main reason I purchased the app was hoping it would have speed adjustment feature. Volunteers have great variation in their reading speed & some are excruciatingly slow! Also Everytime I get a text message, when it resumes the playback pauses every few seconds until I press play on the app again. So annoying!
