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
12/4/2013It does the job, but there are annoying quirks. Quite often a new chapter won't completely load, and I have to exit the book and go back in. Often when that happens, it dumps me back one or more chapters.
12/3/2013Works well on 8X and Lumia through WiFi.
12/2/2013Works well, but audiobooks pause after each file ends. Needs the updates to version 3.0 so users can log in and sync progress across devices. Love the option to pin titles directly to the start screen. Having this app on a Windows device, you think it would support WMA audiobooks, but it only works with mp3. I'd love to see some WMA support!
12/2/2013Best thing since sliced bread! I love my audio and eBooks that I can take with me anywhere! Thanks Overdrive!
12/1/2013Keeps losing memory. It just stops showing the text in an eBook ad you have to either reopen the book or reopen the app.
11/30/2013This app is the worst memory and battery hog that I've ever used. Bad design, bad UI... Needs a complete redesign.
11/30/2013Borrow books and read them at your leisure. Love this app.
11/30/2013I am so happy I found this app!!
