Reviews From google play store

Thank you readers for your work! When I started using libriVox I was annoyed that the books I wanted to listen were read by people with some form of vocal issues like a lisp. After starting college I realized that I just dont have the time to read out of luxury. So I find myself here to listen, For Free, books I want to read but dont have time for. I also realized that these readers are making an effort to overcome their issues and become comfortable with the idea of public speaking!I'M GRATEFUL


I love librivox! Its amazing to have so many free audio books at my finger tips. Not just an app, this is a public servic! But, playback can be glitchy. If I say, fall asleep listening, then backtrack the next day, when i click my phone screen off, the audio often stops completely, or jumps ahead to where i had previously ended. It's mostly frustrating when im driving and i can't fix it. Otherwise, love this app. Love the books; as a low income person, I'm extremely thankful for this service.


I have listened to countless books and have enjoyed the fantastic depth of choice all of which have been done by amazing narrators add to that the fact that they are volunteers this is an amazing app and I continually recommend to family and friends alike thank you librivox


Best. App. Ever. Readers vary in quality, but you do it if you think you could do better! Volunteers reading great books they love. What's not to like about librivox? I was a fan before the app existed. I love the idea.


Great for easily listening to public domain audiobooks from librivox. Also a good source for accessing old time radio shows.


I have used LibriVox for many years even before it was an app. As a proponantr of open source material I appreciate the work of the volunteers to make information accessible to all.


Great for old books but preferred old app . New app does not allow download of whole book. Hangs too often. Times out


Excellent app and excellent free content. Very thankful for the wide variety of literature available for free.


Normally don't care for apps to read to me, but this one the best. Clearly separates the free vs. paid books, with limited ads.


Fantastic app, exactly what I wanted. Great recordings of great books!


If you select carefully you are in for a longterm treat of well read stoties. Give it a try!


I found I could not choose a particular story from within a collection of short stories, when I wanted to read them in a different order.


Audio keeps playing even after disconnecting Bluetooth headphones. Occurs across multiple devices.


This app is a good source of classic titles both in audio and book format.


Many hours of pleasure and entertainment Somewhat lower in production values than Audible but eclectic in its subject matter.


update: restarted but still no profile. orig: used to be able to see my read books and lists. now i cannot see them or my own profile anymore. 5 stars when this is fixed


Lots of great stories read and shared for free!


Wide selection, good quality recordings. Only wish I could adjust speed of reading.


The narrators are great. Love this app!


love Librovox ! Sometimes, its challenging to find downloaded books but overall, an excellent audiobook resource. I love many of the readers on the free books.


I have enjoyed this application over the past three years and use it daily, thank you LibriVox for the splendid work you do!


Very well done UI/UX and lovely range of books to listen to that have been recorded at high quality.


Very functional, convenient and inexpensive to use


Love this. I can read on the go. Thank you LibriVox and all people who willingly give their voices to bring many great books alive.


Lots of free books and a good UI.


great when you download the book! streaming can be glitchy.


excellent free material. you can actually narrate books yourself


Excellent, all the classics (and others) at your fingertips.


Sheer joy and delightful reading experience.


I have been listening to books on this App for 1 1/2 years. I am hooked!!!


Really good. Upgrade the UI for 5 stars.


LOVE the fact that People get to READ...and many are Excellent!


Awesome free audiobooks app!


free ..perfect ..&a time of writers experinceing life &then memoirish..x


Great books and enjoyable entertainment


Works great. Good selection.


playback speed option should be provided


i love this app. this app has a huge amount of classic novels and that too free of cost. although the recordings do stop abruptly once in a while but the apt narration and huge list of books make the experience worthwhile


well presented and a pleasure to listen to.


I would like to be able to remove from my device books I have read.


If you are looking for the sleek professional audio book experience then go to audible and buy them, if you want a huge library that people have have given their own time to, that is entertaining and will help you pass the time then you have found the perfect app. Thank you to all the volunteers for their hard work, well done LibriVox.


Free audiobooks from kind people donating their time. What's not to like??


Excellent. Old audiobooks & series which I thought were gone forever. Basil Rathbone as Sherlock Holmes, Nigel Bruce as Dr. Watson. Winston Churchill's war time speeches. Tbe 39 Steps etc. All the originals. Delighted to have discovered LibriVox. An avid listener!!!!


Lots of free old books


I use this app very frequently, it is quite dependable and easy to use. the only problem I seem to have is when I get a call mid chapter sometimes it restarts the chapter, which is usually no big deal.


A great way to listen to spoken word. There seem to be so many spoken books to try out and the interface is pretty simple. l currently find it a nice way to wind down at bed time


the selection of books is phenomenal, and the quality of narration surprisingly professional. However, searching through the catalogue and finding an exact book you're looking for can be challenging


I absolutely love, love, LOVE LibriVox! Thank you LibriVox and to all the volunteers who have dedicated their time to put these old stories in audiobook form. It is very appreciated!


excellent app, listening is almost always smooth, and some great audiobooks for free. what more could you want? on rare occasion it may stop and have to restart chapter, but that was only while driving, so maybe it was my crappy phone service? and it remembers where you left off. some readers are definitely better than others, but some books have multiple versions, so you can try a different version to find a narrator or voice you like better. I would highly recommend LibriVox to anyone.


I am happy to access free books. Very grateful, actually. So I ought not be too picky. But, I am growing tired of the classics! More variety would be nice. My only other small complaint is the app does not allow me to slow the rate of the recording. I've had a couple books read at such a fast pace they were not entirely enjoyable.


Excellent free service. I've been exposed to a plethora of fabulous books I may have never discovered otherwise. Thank you to the generous readers for helping to share these stories.


I enjoy this app, the selection is good. The audio is sometimes not the best because many volunteers may contribute to a book but in most cases the audio clarity is good. My favorite audiobooks to listen to so far have been, a little princess, moby dick, and dracula. The audio for the bhagavad gita is terrible, with static, lack of clear inunciation in most volunteer audio chapters. So be wary of quality but the majority of the content is good.


Great selection! App function could use improvement: the player not infrequently will randomly restart the chapter/section you are listening to (especially when connected to bluetooth). Ocassionally the audio will skip, though I'm not sure if that's an app issue or a recording issue. Other than that, a wonderful app that I am very grateful for!


Love it. I use this app during long road trips. I like that the stories can be downloaded for areas with weak reception.


The best FREE (rating based on- see below) media-gathering app I've ever used- I've enjoyed so many books, short stories and plays on here that I must be reaching 100 soon! I feel privileged to get so much for just a small amount of space on my LG. I most appreciate how well it remembers where you left off on any amount on different books so you can go bak whenever! The READERS: MOST: above average- some: OUTSTANDING and OCCASIONAL ANNOYING READERS ARE THE PRICE ONE PAYS FOR FREE LISTENING!


UI could use a bit of attention to be easier to navigate, but otherwise a first-class app.


Good app for great service


Large selection of mostly public domain titles. Quality of audio books is variable as they're primary read by volunteers. My biggest issue is with the limited interface when using through Android Auto. Specifically you can only move backward and forward by sections. Each section is usually 1 or more chapters.


I have enjoyed listening to old books by authors that are not particularly famous anymore (as far as I know).


librivox is my go-to for all kinds of reading/audio. When I want to hear a story, learn about history, science, it keeps me thinking. When I want to sleep, I choose something else more soothing (solo readers, only) turn on the timer and no worries, only rest soon! Thanks, librivox!


prett much exactly what i want, but in some books trying to manually jump ahead or back usingnthe slider just randomizes the location instead of going where you want


Since the latest update, the size of the ad banners has tripled and the number of ad banners has quadrupled. The ad banners also keep changing the size and location. An app needs to show ads, but not without breaking its primary purpose.


Free Audio Books!!!!!!


great way to enjoy stories


App constantly crashes and resets the book of your phone gets a notification (txt message, email,etc...) the newest update made it far worse than before. The earlier version if you got notification it was fine you just couldn't open the message, now it just crashes


This app has been so helpful. When I was having to drive long distances and spend time in the RE with ailing relatives listening to books helped tremendously. I continue to enjoy the stories and wonderful readers that bring them to life.


tons of great books including many classics. improve your mind at no cost.


This format that you've changed to is in no way equal to the one it replaced. On this one you can't start on different chapters or see who is the reader. Always liked the similar books feature.


It is fantastic to be able to listen to so many classic books for free. There are some really fantastic narrators who have dedicated countless hours to reading these books, and I for one really appreciate this.


This is the one app I use everyday . Simply the best !


Not every narrator of free audio is truly capable, but some narrators- especially David Clark - are perfection. When there are multiple editions, be sure to sample each for the version than suits you best.


If you need pause a book for more than a minute or so, the app loses focus. Then you have to use the screen to resume playback. Not good if you are driving or if you are trying to listen in a dark room with someone else trying to sleep.


Used this for years. Probably the most useful app I have installed. Excellent for those boring work days when you're just running through the motions, such as lawn care.


Great app, but I bought the ad free version and haven't gotten it. I have emailed support and gave them what they asked for, but the response time is very slow.


I like the app, but it would be helpful for the fonts etc. to be larger because I use it mostly whole driving and it is hard to manage the app safely. But overall a great app!


Its not professional sounding but if you dont expect that it really couldnt get much better. Gotten to listen to so many books I have wanted to read and its all for free. Awesome.


Sometimes the narrator voices leave something to be desired, but that's only been on free books. Overall a wonderful app!


This app gives access to many interesting books to listen to over wifi, data if you choose, or to download & take anywhere. Volunteer reader quality varies but there are some excellent ones.


such a fantastic app. So many free classics to listen to. I've really enjoyed the sci-fi novels that are available. I recommend this app all the time!


Love the audio aspect except for having to click on every chapter of the book to play it. IT IS SO FRUSTRATING. They need to look at automatic consecutive chapter continuation.


First class, faithful audio renditions of classic works.


I love this app. sometines I getvtoo busy to read and this app helps me to listen to a chapter a day before sleeping. it's a very useful tool and part of my reading plan.


I love falling asleep listening to audiobooks. I've revisited old favorites and discovered new ones. Some of the readers are really amazing!


Nice app that I use predominately for free classics. I wish it had a way to speed up the speech. Some speakers are so slow.


I am addicted to listening to books. Even tho the quality of the readers varies, the selection is quite profound. Thank you librivox!


Love that I can listen to older stories. Nice and clean and no foul language. Takes you back in time as well - imagination haven


Really like the update -- was a little buggy at 1st, but has since smoothed out. Wondering how I can make a request for a book or narrator?


For free and legal book options, this is close to the best possible. Of course, if you are willing to pay you can get far more selection.


Easy to search, find & use


I love the amount of options and truly enjoy access to books I wouldn't have time to read otherwise. this library helps me escape.


Paid to remove ads but am still seeing them. Unfortunately, rating 1 star seems like the only way to possibly get the attention of support to sort this problem.


Open access to classic material. It would be nice to have more regional accents. But other than that its ace!


Nice selection of books. Very enjoyable. This app enables me to be able to enjoy books again. Thanks. :)


I use this app every night. It's great that I can download the stories so I can take them on the go with me to places where internet isn't available.


Lovely website for open domain audio books. The app is a bit slower and harder to navigate but overall it's quite good.


I use this often and highly recommend it. Occasional poor sound quality is due to the individual recorders not to the app.


I paid for the ad free version, yet they started to place large banner ads for Audible in the player. That's deception.


This app has transformed my commute. There are many high quality recordings that you can access for free.


I like the collection of books and lots of the readers are very good! This is a gem, a great example of collaboration.


This app is great... you can listen to all kinds of books, and even catch up on classics that you never got around to reading!
