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.
- browse by genre or author

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.
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
