Just couldn't listen while out of the country but this app is great for listening to the classics!
As a person that has a hard time reading these audio book are of great use and joy. These books will undoubtedly be utilized and listened to with the upmost fondness for literature. Thank you so very much.
Coz it is much easier to read 4rm ur phone than 2 go de library
I'm glad these books are in audiobook format, but the narration leaves a lot to be desired.
Yes, it's somewhat annoying to see an ad once in a while but I would rather have that to keep the app up to date than a high price. I especially like the prioritized downloads. Would be nice if the app could jump both forward and backward by small increments. Reliable but no fancy stuff.
Perfect for when I'm being rushed to finish books!
I love this app! Makes sitting in traffic bearable! Wouldn't mind one person reading the entire novel though.
This is a fairly good program. There are a few narrators who are difficult to understand. As this is an entirely volunteer basis program, I accept that some people use it as a way to practice their spoken English. But there is a large selection to choose from. I find it useful when traveling in my car over a long distance.
Listen to all of the greatest books of the times of our History. Bravo!
Good App to pass time during walk
I'm new to this app, but thus far I like it
A little problem downloading future chapters
Great selection and quality! Easy to stop and start.
Thank you all for reading to me when I cannot read it for myself, for I have no time to read , because I am so strap for time. Thank you all.
Enjoying the books that is hard to find and having books on audio is always a great way to read books on a busy schedule
I love this app
This is the audiobook app I have been looking for, let's me download and save my data plan!
Very useful app, some chapters have poor quality in some books but overall it's the quality is great and the app itself is very useful.
I used to love this app but this one add popped up and I can't get it to go away! I've tried re-loading but it still doesn't go away. I will give this app a 5 star if the problem is fixed
Too many ads and it doesn't download the entire book. I am out driving and cannot listen to more than a couple of chapters.
I would love to give this app the full five stars but I can't. There is one add that doesn't load and so I can't get to the book and have tried restarting the app several times to no avail. I bought the paid version in the hopes that the ads would be fewer but no luck. This is a volunteer project get rid of the ads!!
It's a great app works very well
I love this app! Great for a long drive!
This app is perfect for traveling, cleaning the house and just enjoying a break from turning pages. Will always recommend. I couldn't give this app the five stars I wanted to based on my above description bc Librivox has chosen way too many chapters read by people with thick accents. I shouldn't have to google a chapter synopsis bc the reader could barely speak English.
It's great, if you like classics, which I do. Just watch out for the very poor readers.
This is a cool app works well and lets you do other stuff while listening to books. The only problem is it keeps turning into a (visual) Samsung add and not letting me get out of it to listen or do anything with the program so I'm rating it since it asked me to when I restarted to see it if it appeases the spoken book god.
I love it works very well
I think that is excellent All the words are very clear It's like watching TV You get so caught up into it I love it good job
The app's page promised thousands of books but they're all old books. That's fine, but if you want to listen to a book that came out recently, get a different app.
This has so many ads that are constantly popping up, it is such a waste of time. And it's not a quick ad that you can close out, it is a full video which takes a ton of cellular data. I like to listen to books while I'm on the road, but this app makes it difficult to download new books while out on the road.
A great app,full of great reading learning,keep up the great work
Really not that impressive. Downloads are choppy and incomplete. Selection needs a serious update. Functions are not user friendly
This I really good
An awesome app!!!!! Really good books
Awesome collection for kids
Can you guys get Edith Hamiltons mythology?
This was great for multitasking, and I finally got to start classic literature.
A somewhat limited selection. But overall works well n hate the commercials
I am enjoying listening to the classics but I would agree with another reviewer one quality reader per book please. At times it is hard to adjust to the different readers. I have listened to many books on CD and have never had more than 2 readers and that was only in a book that different characters were read by 2 readers.
I am very impressed by the sheer number of magnificent authors and books offered by this tiny app! Whether its Verne or Dickens, Dracula or Mr. Sawyer you're craving, look no further than right here!! :-)
Like it but could use better organization and variety
I love these classic books but I don't like that they are a partial books. I have been trying to download the rest of 6 books for a week now :(
I highly recommend this app a valuable tool to access the best classic books
It's a real simple smooth app so far not sure how you can't like this app
Doesn't work. Crashes constantly. Haven't gotten to hear even a part of a book. Deleting and forgetting about the frustration of it.
Tons of enjoyment for hours on end in the car, at work or rainy day. Highly recommend!
Very good so far.
I really appreciate the majority of the selection of people who do the voice over reading. Most of them have clear diction and are understandable. There are a few however whose range of vocal ability Is limited. Overall I find this very valuable form of entertainment.
