LibriVox Downloader

LibriVox Downloader


LibriVox Downloader conveniently downloads free audio books from the LibriVox collection, which can then be played in a suitable audio player. MortPlayer Audio Book is recommended.

This app is my Christmas gift for my wife.

The books are by default downloaded to the LibriVox folder on your SD card / external storage. You should set MortPlayer Audio Book to use that folder as its main folder, or use the Options in LibriVox Downloader to select a different folder for it to download to.

Features:
- browse by genre or author
- search by title or author
- choose between ogg and mp3
- download cover art

If you're having trouble getting LibriVox Downloader working, email [email protected] before leaving feedback.

NOTE 1: I recommend downloading audio books only via WiFi. These are very large downloads, about 350 mb or so each.

NOTE 2: I've had one user report that ogg downloads work better than mp3 ones. I am investigating.

Recent changes:
1.07: Disable SSL host check to work with Librivox site's cert.
1.06: Update to work with new Librivox API. Remove ogg support due to this (sorry).
1.05: Finer-grained download count to help with debugging
1.03: Retry downloads (configurable in the options) on failure or on zero-length. This should make the reliability higher.
1.02: Fix an unclosed cursor crash.
1.01: Trap database opening error.
1.00: Official release.
0.13: Try to fix directory delete crash

Qualm While viewing a book's description and arrow back to the previous screen, the app takes me back to the top of the book list. I will gladly give this app 5 stars if this problem is fixed.

Best option out there This is the best way I've found to access librevox on Android without having to pick through a bunch of non librevox titles mixed throughout. Definitely worth learning the interface.

Not for the incompetent... This is an audiobook downloader. Find the author of the book you are looking for, search for them instantly and click download. Audio books for free. Bravo my friend! If you want something that does it all for you call Ronco. If you want a queue go to the bank. I for one will be very content not having to stream while I fly. Thanks so much for this!!!!

This is pointless What is the point to an app that lets you download books but without the ability to listen to said book? This app is pointless. I was also hoping to find an app that would let me read the text, but apparently those don't exist.

Why!!! It would have been perfect but for some reason it has a very limited list of books. I can't find any of the books I am currently listening to on the librivox app.I want to be able to play the books on a diff player so I can speed it up a little.
