Download eBooks and audiobooks from your library directly to your Windows Phone! OverDrive Media Console gives you on-the-go access to eBooks and audiobooks from your public, school, or college library. More than 18,000 libraries worldwide offer best-selling and classic titles via OverDrive, so use the 'Get Books' feature in the app to find a library near you. Digital titles from your library are borrowed just like print material. Once you find your library using 'Get Books,' you can browse your library's digital collection website in the app, check out a title with a valid library card, and download the title directly to your Windows Phone. While borrowing the digital title, you can enjoy it using the app's eBook reader or audiobook player. Each EPUB eBook and MP3 audiobook that you check out has a lending period. The title automatically expires in the app at the end of the lending period, so there's never a late fee. There's even a handy countdown clock built into the app so you know how long you have to read or listen before the title expires. What happens if a digital title is already checked out? Just like with physical material from the library, you can join a waiting list. All you need to do is enter your email address and you'll receive an alert when the title is available for check out. Don't want to wait? Many libraries offer thousands of EPUB eBook downloads that are always available. Just check for the 'Additional eBooks' link at the bottom of the digital collection homepage and you can get a free eBook from your library that's yours to keep—without a lending period. You can also download DRM-free EPUB eBooks from other online sources using 'Get Books'. Want more books? Contact your library and let them know that you are using OverDrive on your Windows Phone and would like to see additional titles in the digital collection. *What's New v2.5 -Share on Facebook v2.4 -Dictionary -Early return to library -Background file downloads
13/04/2014Easy to use and holds a wide selection of titles.
11/04/2014Please can you fix this app for Windows 7 on Nokia lumia 610. Everytime I go to find a library, the app just crashes. Such ashame though as it's a good app (I have it on my android tablet). It's great to have a library on the go for free. I guess kindle and others will have a run for there money once this goes viral.
06/04/2014Very easy to use, excellent in fact
02/04/2014Easy to install. Easy to use. Has frozen a couple of times but otherwise excellent
28/03/2014I love to have my library book with me when travelling or waiting for appointments or just relaxing so I have got it on my phone. No extra things to carry as it's always with me! I have a Kobo too. Overdrive is marvellous for me, I have no time to go to the Library.
24/03/2014Would be nice if we could sync across devices
17/03/2014Great app. A little slow at times.
