What's New in Version 3.8
Now with over 9750 free audiobooks and improved playback and auto-bookmarking of premium audiobooks.
I thought about titling this ALL YE LIBRIVOX LISTENERS REJOICE! But this app has more than just librivox. Sweetness. It is also a very stable audiobook player which has some really important features.
First it downloads the ENTIRE book not single chapters. That may not seem too important but just try listening to long books like War and Peace or The three Musketeers downloaded one chapter at a time. It'll drive you nuts. It also doesn't crash when you you turn your device off or open other apps with the book playing in the background. I can't tell you how many times other apps have done that to me. This doesn't lose it's place. That will save a ton of headaches. It has the full librivox catalog and podiobooks! Topping on the cake is the sleep timer which if you fall asleep to audiobooks like I do is really nice.
I didn't think I was going to get this app because I got the free version to crash but that only seems to be for the free version.
An absolutely flawless app! If you have any interest in the great works of antiquity, don't hesitate to download this portal into the past, where you'll find not only familiar classics, but also unduly forgotten ones well worth recovering. Downloads are remarkably quick, and playback seamless. Titles are grouped together in very specific genres, which makes locating interesting texts a breeze. Once you've found one, scroll down and take advantage of the various ways of identifying related texts. You can add as many titles as you want to your favorites list and keep them there without downloading them until you're prepared to listen to them, a great feature for phones that are short on memory. Overall, one of the best, most satisfying apps I've ever used. (FYI, plenty of contemporary works are also available, but you will have to pay to download them.)
I use this app every night. I couldn't sleep without it because it is a part of my routine. I've longed battled insomnia but listening to so many wonderful stories has changed everything. I no longer see my bed as a place of frustration. If I go to sleep, great but if I don't, well, that's ok too because I'm enjoying myself. The selection is wonderful and quite varied. The readers do a great job. I prefer the single reader recordings myself but I've listened to numerous multi-reader books too. The interface is great. Honestly, this one is a no-brainer. As a last comment, another review stated that all the books cost money. I'm not sure why they said a Tale of Two Cities is $18. I have it in my library and it was free, just like every other Librivox book. Even if you have the free version of this app, Librivox books are free.
