LibriVox Audio Books Pro App Reviews

Perfect

Everything works just fine, search, download, play. And a pleasant surprise for me - in "similar" books you can see other books by the same narrator.

Great Classic Books!

Wonderful selection of classic books! Pretty and easy to use. Thanks to all the readers - this makes my commute so much more pleasant!

Not as good as audiobooks app

It doesnt keep playing after chapter ends i u have diff app open and doesnt resume playing after a video plays. Great selection but needs improvement

Amazing

The people who reads the books, plays, etc, are doing a fantastic job. The app works great, and any problem can be fixed with a restart.

Broken catalog

The Catalog genre listings are vastly incomplete versus the LibriVox web site, such that Childrens Fiction is empty of their 484 listings. The app simply called Audiobooks also accesses LibriVox and seems the best of all I tried, even having speed play, and not requiring a silly Load More button just to scroll through a list.

Does not play

When I choose a book and choose listen it acts like going to play but app closes :/

LibriVox Audiobook Pro

For a decade I spent $20 each month for audiobooks. This App works very much better. The variety of books is excellent. The readers are terrific with rare exceptions

Nice app for audio books

Great on iphone, my fav, but crashes on ipad mini

Love it

Its a great app, I love to listen to audio books before I go to bed. I do wish they had some newer content (hence the 4/5), but I love the books on there. Also it lets the listener control the speed of the reader, which is great. Love the app, worth the money for sure.

Good, but does not play well with others...

This app works well in general for finding, downloading and streaming audiobooks. But it does not conform to Apple UI standards - for example, swipe left to expose delete should be used instead of a button on chapter screen. The major UI issue is that “play” persists when unplugging earphones (Apple auto stops and remembers place on all other apps I use). Worse, when answering a phone or using sound on an activated app, the app does not suspend but continues to play over the conversation or voice message, etc. With these bugs fixed, it gets 5 stars.

Was five star....

But now is skipping chapters since update to ios9 update. Its easier to listen to stories on other app. Too bad

great, but needs to be optimized for iOS 9

the app was functioning fantastically until the iOS 9 update. now its skipping two or three chapters at a time, and ive noticed that all the books i had downloaded had disappeared. hoping for a fix soon.

Update 7.1.0

This is (was) the best audiobook app until the 7.1.0 update. Now search no longer works by author or narrator. When downloading a book the app constantly flickers rapidly. Reviews of books within the app are cut off and one cannot read or post a complete review. I sent an email to support last month and have yet to hear back. If these issues aren’t fixed the app is worthless! Please roll back the update or fix it.

LibriVox

LibriVox is a precious app, one of my very favorites. It is a gem. Getting caught up on and appreciating all the books I never read when I was younger. I have the ad free version, which I love.

Just what I’ve been looking for!

The app works great and there’s no login, no password needed plus it will save your favorite and resume where you stopped.

Lousy

I have the free one and I can listen to any of the books. I thought, “why don’t I get the $2 version!? It will be ever so much better!” NOPE, can’t get it to work at all.

Please stop over eating all books

I love this app but every single book is rated four and a half stars. This makes it very difficult to find good books. So if you get this app please rate books that are not good or entertaining better than others for everyone’s sake. Also the delete all your review if you leave a bad review

Valuable Resource!

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!

awe inspiring!

Open access to some of western civilization’s greatest thinkers! Truly awe inspiring!

Has significant advantages over the free version

This version appears to support unlimited sequential listening. Ie listening to multiple chapters unattended. Plus no commercials. $1.99 is a an amazing price to access almost unlimited audio books.

First few seconds announcing the story title are skipped over

I’m listening to Grimms fairytales read by Bob Neufeld, wonderful listening, however each story skips a few seconds so you don’t hear the title. It’s very irritating, and you should fix it.

Best $2 you’ll ever spend!

Love this app - I listen to it every morning and night on my daily drive to work. The books are read loud and clear and well the volunteers who read have soothing voices that make it easy on your ear (ex. Andrea Fiore) I’m so grateful for this app & all its volunteers!

Needs improvement

Having to unlock my phone and go into the app every time I want to pause what I’m listening to is just annoying, especially while driving.

Free legal Audiobooks

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

Swann’s Way- surprisingly well done!

Both readers do a very good job. This is not an easy novel to interpret but both readers seem to have done their homework, know and love the material and give an honest and believable rendering!

Love

This app is amazing! Not all readers are equally good but no matter. I can listed anywhere. Love it and my kids love it.

Update again Handy Mandy in Oz

You need to up date again because they just brought in Handy Mandy in Oz audiobook in and it need to be in every LibriVox app to use it all new audiobooks now please put it in

So Enjoying

I very much appreciate being able to listen to good books from my library while driving to and from work😊

Ok

We really liked it and used it for homework as a family. But since the new Apple update it won’t play.

CarPlay would make it better

Great app, very large selection of audiobooks. CarPlay integration would make the app even better!

Enjoy Listening to the classics

There are so many free books to listen to. Some readers are better than others. But many books have been rated as to the quality of the presentation.

New app - I have only found one tiny problem

This app looses it's place from one Day to the next. You have to remember which chapter was playing when you are done for the Day.

great, but needs to be optimized for iOS 9

the app was functioning fantastically until the iOS 9 update. now it's skipping two or three chapters at a time, and i've noticed that all the books i had downloaded had disappeared. hoping for a fix soon.
