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
10/21/2014I like it, however flipping from one page to the next in an eBook is not as fluid as it should be.
10/21/2014Great way to read on the go!
10/21/2014Had some difficulties at first getting the app to load. You need to download app, THEN find your library. I really like the sleep feature on this mobile app--just wish it was on all app formats. Great to time your lunch or fall asleep to.
10/21/2014Little tricky but love it
10/21/2014Its great for reading books on your phone or table but it does glitch a bit.
10/21/2014Have to sign in multiple times before it accepts my log in
10/20/2014Need improvements on navigation but generally it works you just need patience.
10/20/2014Great App for audio books
10/20/2014I can't seem to stay logged in to brows for books and have to keep fighting it. Also, I have to keep searching for my library because the link Overdrive provides simply boots my back out of Overdrive entirely. Other than that, it functions properly thus far.
