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
3/7/2014Fast and easy to use.
3/7/2014Wonderful app. Love that I can read books for free and hear them read to me for free.
3/7/2014A small learning curve. Wonderful program.
3/7/2014I love being able to have a book to read at my fingertips at any moment. I also love never having to worry about library fines for late returns. Plus I can read in bed with out using the light.
3/7/2014Great application. I would prefer for the "discs" to progress without my prompting.
3/7/2014This app allows me to "borrow" electronic books from my local library! Most of the time it works wonderfully, but occasionally on my Nokia Lumia a page doesn't load right and halfway down it goes to a blank white screen. This is quickly fixed by using the back button to get out of the book and then returning to it. This doesn't happen using this app on my Samsung Galaxy Tab, so I'll be rating it a 5 in the Google play marketplace...
3/7/2014Great concept. More problems with Win8 version than Android. WP8 software seems improved after recent update. Nokia Lumia 822.
3/6/2014This is the best! Saves me time and money. Easy to use and a ton of books to choose from. Love it!
3/6/2014So convenient to use.
3/6/2014Can't save downloads to SD card. Search feature to find audio books is awful. Otherwise works well.
