  • 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!

    My own honest opinion......Since the latest update, it's become rather user UNfriendly 😥 I can't navigate or find anything very easily and it looks awful 😥

    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)

    Love the free access to audiobooks from the public domain! They also provide audiobooks in other languages!

    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!

    This is such a fantastic app, it's well worth paying the few quid to get the ad free version. I have been using this app to help me fall asleep for about 8 years now. There is a fabulous variety of books, and a wealth of different readers. You can even read a book yourself, should you so desire. As long as it's public domain, Librivox has it. Just wonderful. I wouldn't be without it
  • Great app Jul 6, 2019

    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.

    3/28/2021 - i have the new update. Nice new format. BUT my books stop playing at the end of a chapter so i must manually hit play to continue playing. :-/ This is occurring with both streamed and downloaded selections.

    Since discovering this wonderful program, I know I am able to retire in the evening, knowing I will have wonderful books, etc to listen to. This simple pleasure allows me to listen to my LibriVox choice, timing it to stop for the night when desired. One has no idea how important this can be. It takes me away from any worries of the day, into another world. I’m in my 80’s, so the choices available to select from, allows me to go back to some childhood days. Love it. Thanks so very much.

  • 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!
  • 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.

    This app is the marriage of a work of love and a welcoming attitude. This means even poorly dictated recordings are allowed but it’s okay because without them many books wouldn’t be available. Get the PAID version because it’s very cheap to remove adds and for some reason the text speed reader will adjust better...

    I have recommended this to many people. Although the readers are volunteers, the quality of the narration is usually quite good. I would recommend splurging on the $1.99 version of the phone app so that you don’t get ads. It is good form to donate a few bucks to LibriVox but they do not pressure you to do so

    About new app look&feel: Ithink I love it, but: -1. Has the dark mode been ditched or am I just too thick to find the switch? -2. Can I remove the sliding spectrogram thingamajig in the middle (or at least rescale it because it tends to be at saturation all the time).
  • 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.

    LibriVox Audio Books *Supporter* is the only one of the two versions of this app that supports Google Cast correctly for me. Most of functionality is pretty intuitive to use, but the playback options are definitely primitive, and the default screen doesn't reliability reflect what you last played, perhaps because the app doesn't request any permissions. LibriVox, as a service in general, is wonderful. Volunteer readers will always be hit and miss, but it's better than nothing.

    Great app. Before this was available I would have to manually download the files for each audio book from the Librivox website and transfer them via iTunes to play them from my phone. This is a really good resource!

    Most search results turn up books priced like Audible with free versions hard to find. Librivox puts their recordings in the public domain and offers them for free. It seems like the app developers are choosing to charge extra to listen to books even though I paid for the pro version of the app.
