- LibriVox Audio Books Free
- iOS, Android
In the car, while exercising, cycling or cleaning: plenty of opportunities to listen to an audio book. The great advantage of LibriVox Audio Books Free is that - as the name indicates - all books are free. This also has disadvantages; the collection is not as impressive as the 180 thousand specimens that for example, Audible has on its shelves, neither does it contain recent works. However, you can still choose from 15 thousand classic titles, such as Moby Dick, Pride and Prejudice, and the collected adventures of Sherlock Holmes.
It is very simple to use. You start by indicating which languages you wish to listen to (for example English and Dutch) and then you can leaf through the collection. There are reviews by users and short summaries, and you can also determine if you want to listen online or download the book onto your smartphone. Those who like to be read to before falling asleep, can set a timer. This ensures that the app automatically stops either at a certain time or at the end of a chapter.
