Nope. “Free” means garbage. Want a good book? Don’t try this app.
Perfect when too tired to read 5/5
I always read before sleeping but when I am wired or too tired I use audiobooks. I love the voices and the free books! A grateful user.
Used to be better 1/5
Now buggy, unresponsive during down loads, crashes frequently on 1 year old ipad 12.1.4
Speed control does not work reliably throughout.
Wonderful app 5/5
Easy to use. Enjoy it very much!
Better than the many movie and TV productions 4/5
Since this is an all volunteer effort, all levels of experience were evident in the readers, and their volunteerism is greatly appreciated.
Hopefully Gets Fixed 2/5
Was great, now crashes every time.
Can’t get anything to work 1/5
I decided to try this but I try to play a audio book and it freezes and won’t play. I wish it would work so could you try to fix it?
So very helpful 5/5
The app’s interface is clean and easy with a good feature set: back up, jump ahead, sleep timer, etc. Enjoyable and helpful. Thanks also to LibriVox!

I generally enjoy listening to audio books while lying in bed before I fall asleep. However, most of the Audio books I listen to come from the local library. The book that are on my phone are not that relatable to me. I am an African American and I find no romance,drama, comedy in these audio books. I find no African American narrators and basically no non fiction or fiction books in this library that I can relate to.
Treasure island 5/5
By joe the old
Great love to listen to classics
Ted Show 5/5
Very interesting show, especially the bullying sitcom.
By problem with location app
The most frustrating thing about this app is how many books are cut up by being narrated by persons with thick accents or very annoying cadences! Some narrators accents are so thick that you cannot understand them at all, or their reading style is so weird and annoying to listen to. Then there are a couple narrators who are a pleasure....like Andy minter. I choose the book by the narrators for this reason
Recent update freezes 1/5
My rating of two stars should only reflect on the recent update. I have been using this app for many years, but since the update, the app freezes so frequently that it has become essentially unusable for me for some reason. I’m sad. Hoping for a resolution soon!
I’m a mom trying to multitask and I wanted it to read to my baby and it doesn’t even work after I read my first half.!!!!!
Expanded my reading breadth. 5/5
By BookLover 100
I’ve listened to a greater variety of wonderful books than I would have expected. There are many undiscovered treasures in the public domain and read by talented narrators in this app. Ten stars! Sometimes I wish I could slow the reading down a bit. It seems too fast.
The window at the white cat 5/5
By little lopo
I first downloaded this book around 10 years ago and have been listening over and over as one of my absolute favorite books, and the reading by Robert kiper is one of the most soothing voices as a narrator. Thank you
I am loving this ap. There are quite a few very good readers and so many classics that I would honestly have trouble reading on my own. This is a fantastic way to tackle these works. Thank you, volunteer readers!!!
App Crash Report 4/5
Every time I open the app, it allows me to operate it for a few seconds and then it begins to lag, then it freezes and finally the app crashes. Idk what the problem is, but I hope the developers can fix it.
Kidnapped by Robert Louis Stevenson 5/5
Not working can’t listen to books I choose
Pride and Prejudice review 5/5
Excellent work! Hours of great entertainment.
Best app yet lets your mind go off
She must’ve been hot 4/5
I really like this app, I’ve been cruising through all the classics. My only complaints is they like to use women with thick accents sometimes, you can hardly understand them. It seriously makes me want to slap the silly out of the person who thought this was a good idea. I’m listening to the count of monte Crista it’s been an important chapter and I couldn’t understand a freakin thing she said!! She must’ve been hot to let her keep reading, these women have ruined this book for me!!
Backward steps in my experience 3/5
I have listened to Librivox books with this app for years. Enough so that paying the small fee to access plus titles was easy. However, for reasons unknown, the app now irregularly purges completed downloads. I dod not want to leave a review regarding this, but it happened again this morning: 15-20 books went from “all files downloaded” to “0 files downloaded.”
I’ve written and received responses several times on this single issue though no resolution has surfaced. The customer svc response time is fine; it’s just that this malfunction persists. The explanation they offered was that the app might purge previously complete downloads if/when a device’s available storage is exhausted or close to it. I have averaged 8-12gb of free space throughout my correspondence with developer, and have never run out of space. Unfortunately, I am to the point where I will trial the many competing apps. Resigned, EJ
Update-keeps erasing my downloads 1/5
Below this you will see my original 5 star review. However, in the last couple months it continuously deletes my downloads. Instead of indicating a 100% download, everything is now 0%, awaiting download. I live in a rural area with very poor internet connection, so it is essential that I have books on my phone. Also, I rely on this app when I travel, but I can’t anymore if it keeps deleting my downloads. Please fix this.
I had it on my iPhone 2, my iPhone 4 and now my iPhone 6s. If it were the only app on my phone, the cost of my phone would be worth it. So many books and so many genres to choose from! Some readers are better than others, but, hey, they are volunteers. I have about 50 books downloaded to my library which has slowed things down a little so I make sure now to delete the file and just keep the title. I love being able to store books to have on hand when I travel. I love being able to listen to all the science fiction selections and the history and biographies. I love being able to fall asleep to a book after a stressful day. Just download it and enjoy!
Uncle Tom's Cabin 5/5
What a passionate and meaningful book. Written intelligently and motivationally. A must read for those desiring a better society now and in the future. Don't miss the epilogue!

By Showed Great Promise
Very good readers. I listen every day.
Bad app problem 4/5
Ever since I got this app it was good to have. Until this happen. I had a library of books that has been downloaded with all the files, when I open the app, every downloading files are gone and start yet again download them once more. This happen to me twice and I'm sick and tired of having all the files downloaded for only the app self delete the books files. I'm done with this app. I used to love it and I enjoy it listening good books from there; just hate the idea of auto self destruct app and start over. I have zero time to waste for all the books files to be downloaded.
Everything is good except one thing 4/5
By liam pen
The books are good but what happens to the unavailable books are they ever available or did they stay on available? By the way I can’t believe that you have one of my favorite narrator Terezze plumber
