Great fun!


I really enjoy this app and use it frequently. My literary interests have almost always dwelt in long ago and lesser known titles, and this app gives me access to tomes nearly impossible to find anywhere else. I give it only four stars because the search function can be rather problematic. For example; I’ll search for titles written by a certain author and only be given a few choices, but if I look up that author under the actual Authors section, there are dozens more. Or I’ll search for a title and the results give about twenty other titles along with it that seem to have no connection to that title at all. Sometimes this is because my title was mentioned in the description of the other books, but other times not. There have been other difficulties with the search function, but for the sake of conciseness, I won’t mention them here. I have also noticed that many of the titles available on the Librivox website are not available here; I’m not sure if the reason for this, but it would be great to have access to them as well. Also, it can be very time consuming to find a title that captures my interest and holds onto it as well, so I wanted to suggest the addition of a “recommended for you” section that brings up available titles based on your previous listening selections. I believe this would seriously streamline the process and increase the enjoyment of your app. Thanks!


Maturing nicely.


I've used this app alongside ibooks and audible apps for many years (>5.) I am a shut-in who has audiobooks as my tenants. All three of the mentioned programs function well. After the face lift Audiobooks got today, it is my #1. Especially as I consider the vast amount of amazing public domain books that are out there. Listenup: authors like Maurice Leblanc are diamonds waiting to be found. Addendum: the jump forward and speed buttons are easily confused as they look almost identical and are set one above the other. Would like to see the back arrow at top left restored for all screens.

Scarlet pimpernel pride and prejudice


Karen Savage was the narrator on these and several other titles. She is fantastic. This app has been so enjoyable. I am somewhat selective with the narrators . But for a free app it has been wonderful. Thanks for offering so many great titles. Although... I’m having issues with this app running background and draining my iPhone 7 Plus battery. I’ve had this app for 5 years and LOVE IT. But turning off the background refresh didn’t work. 😢 please fix it.
