LibriVox Downloader conveniently downloads free audio books from the LibriVox collection, which can then be played in a suitable audio player. Smart AudioBook is recommended.
This app was a Christmas gift for my wife. If you get something useful out of it, so be it.
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
- search by title or author
- choose between ogg and mp3
- download cover art

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.
1.08: Slightly more family friendly; UI improvements
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.
