Great with "Plus" purchase
I find that the free, regular audiobooks get distracting with the "librivox" ad at the start of every chapter, and the fact that often times each chapter is read by someone new (some of the volunteers have *amazing* reading voices, while others...not so much). However, the Plus Audiobooks tend to have the same reader from start to finish. It's just a shame that the Plus collection is not as large as the free collection, hence the lower rating. I feel like if I am paying for something, I should have a larger selection to choose from. Otherwise, I enjoy the app quite a bit, and have yet to run into issues outside of my own pickiness.
I have thoroughly enjoyed reading books contained within this app. I have had no problems downloading books no problems listening to books except one. Sometimes the readers voice is so low that it becomes very difficult to hear what they are saying. This is particularly true in the books in the public domain.
For instance I am reading the old Jack London book White Fang and one of the readers speak so low that I have to hold my iPhone to my ear to hear anything.
But other than this rare volume issue I feel this is a fantastic app and has given me many hours of free enjoyment. I certainly think it is worth a try to see if you enjoy it and if not you can easily remove it.
Good listening to all who wish to try!
My go to background sound
I listen to new stories all the time in this app! I think there are more than enough books to listen to - but everyone needs to understand that you can only listen to public domain books! That's never been a problem for me - I like these classics!
