Love the upgrade
So much more user friendly and interesting to use.
Free audio books, I can deal with bad readers
This is a great audio book app. The books are free and there is a ton of classical books and older literature which are the only books worth listening to, in my opinion. The readers on some of the books are not great, but they are recording these books for free as volunteers. I am listening to The Life of Cicero by Anthony Trollope and I enjoy having an English reader for this one. Great app!
The only thing I take issue with is that it has multiple narrators for the same book. That's annoying because you get used to the readers style and verbalization of each character and then there is a new reader for the next chapter. It would be more enjoyable if there was only one reader per book! Other than that, very simple to use. Love the book marking. When I close the app, it will restart just where I left off!
I recommends this app I've been using it for a long while .
Helps me understand the importance of the story and visualize it more
Great app but...
This is a great app. I use it all the time. This new update makes it easier to use. I highly recommend this app.
Love it - just need a bookmark
One of my apps I use the most! I fall asleep to it almost every night. I like the accents, Andy Minter being one of my favorites. If ONLY there was a book mark it would be perfect. I used to have an I pod touch and I could choose how long before it auto turned off. Now it's in specific increments. Not that it's a big deal but I'm wondering why that happened. Just PLEASE make a bookmark!

My phone recently got an upgrade and this app was forceclosing as a result of the upgrade... The tech team or creator of this app did an awesome job and promptly fixed the problem... Thank you, thank you, thank you! Now I can finally enjoy this app. I wanted to rate the app earlier, but decided to wait to give them a chance to fix it and they finally did... Well done! Now they get a well deserved 5 stars!
I don't know maybe they updated it from before, but its working well for me. Has chapters pause FF rewind etc. The voice I'd ok, not the best. But I would recommend reading it yourself, can't beat that.

Issues now fixed and back to being a wonderful app again love it thank you and keep up the good work! highly recommended! Prev post- I want to give this five stars as have the full version on my ipod touch love it used it every day so was excited to get it on my Sam .gs3 but it doesn't work every time you go to play a book it just stops working! Never managed to play anything! Please get this working for us as it's usually great and I miss it! Will change score once fixed!
Just a little thing...
I like this app, but I would like to know is there an option to choose where to save an audio book. I would like to save it on my memory card, but I can't find any similar option... Can someone help me please?
Best app ever!
Absolutely love this app! I can't understand why anyone would give this app less than four or five starts. First of all it's free! If you don't enjoy the reader on a certain book you can often find the same book red by someone else. If you still can't find a reader you enjoy you can just skip that book and try another one. Why would anyone complain about such a wonderful app. You can listen to literally thousands of books for free. Many thanks to LibriVox and all those dedicated volunteer readers!

After comparing this little beauty with many others, what's there 2 complain about? So what if there's no bookmarks or if every narrator doesn't have the perfect accent-could I get anything like this 5 years ago? 2 years ago? And for free? Why don't all u reviewers wake up 2 yourselves & at least appreciate something that u don't even pay for! A 100% 5 stars from me!!!
The best science fiction experience
If you think science fiction novels are good you'd better check out sci-fi short stories. With less predictable plots and zanier premises, they will rock you! Tons of odd stuff on here too, the "surprise me" feature really lives up to its name. From antiquity to recently declassified, it's sure to keep you guessing.
Thank you so much for updating the app. Works great again.
It is the best app ever it is really low in mb aswell and has brilliant stories. I can never fall asleep because i get worried and think about bad things but these help me fall asleep. 100% 5 !Stars from me i love the layout and the accents and i dont need a bookmark because i always finish a book in one. I am not sure if the add more books but if not that is my only wish
A wonderful collection of audio nooks, well read. The app really needs a control panel, or something to allow a user to control his library, etc. For instance , there appears to be no way to remove books once you are finished with them. better op
The new fixes are great! Starts where i left off and has a great selection
Works good, lots of truely free books, quick download, many options, barely noticed adds. Better than audible for Android in my opinion. Haven't used it for very long. I will update to 5 stars after a few more weeks if this continues.
Really great app!
This app is fantastic for listening to some old, classic books and not having to read them yourself! Nice with headphones in as does not disturb others. Clear sound too. Screen goes off while listening to reserve battery. I stronly recommend Treasure Island for males and The Secret Garden for girls. There are so many books to chose from. The people reading keep u interested.I've yet to uninstall which isn't like me-I'm uninstall happy normally! Just a great app. If u want audio books-install this!

Great idea. Fair execution.
Concept and implementation give it an extra star. It's the equivalent of going to a comedy club on open mic night. Good for casual user.
That it has free download
