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
28/02/2014Does the job really well. A useful supplement to my Kindle app.
26/02/2014Wow love this app
25/02/2014I 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.
19/02/2014Picks up local library well. Doesn't move automatically from part to part and will only download to phone memory not SD card. This ap does work though and it's all free so can't complain.
02/02/2014An excellent app. Use it all the time and have dumped my kindle.
02/02/2014Easy to use and holds a wide selection of titles.
28/01/2014It could be better. It had to be turned off to refresh a page regularly
28/01/2014Loses place if incoming phone call answered. Hard to get to bookshelf, libraries if playing audiobook.
