Frequently Asked Questions

Libro.fm App FAQs




Downloading the App

To download the Libro.fm listening app, visit the Apple App Store or Google Play Store. Search for “Libro.fm” and install the app. If a Kindle is your only listening option, follow the Kindle instructions (these instructions are long and complicated, as Amazon does what they can to prevent customers from being able to use their competitor’s services on their devices).



Logging into the App

Log in to the Libro.fm app with the email and password that you used to create your Libro.fm account. Once logged in, your purchased audiobooks will automatically appear in your library. If you’ve forgotten your password, you can reset it.


Downloading and Playing Your Audiobook

To save memory on your device, all your purchased audiobooks are stored in the cloud by default. To download an audiobook to your device, simply tap on the cover and select “Download Audiobook” You’ll then get a progress bar showing the status of the download. You can tell which audiobooks are stored in the cloud by the cloud icon ( ) on the cover. You can also use the filter bar at the top of your library to show all downloaded audiobooks.

Once downloaded, tap on the cover to open the play screen and then the play button to begin listening to your audiobook.


Deleting and Organizing Your Audiobooks

When done with an audiobook, you can delete the files from your device and move it to the “Finished” folder to keep your library organized. You will still be able to re-download your audiobook at any time as the audiobook icon will remain visible in your folders.

Buying More Audiobooks
