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
9/13/2014Would love to give 5 stars but the fact that it freezes and often times the sound doesn't work after I un-pause is frustrating . I love that it connects to my local library and an easy download on my windows phone.
9/13/2014Somewhat dodgy in remembering where a session left off and resuming, i.e., picks up again. Also, doesn't automatically roll from one Part to next Part.
9/13/2014I love it. I just have a recommendation: it could be better if we can access the eBooks from any debase where we has the app installed.
9/12/2014Pretty easy to use app and it's great to be able to tuck my device in my pocket and listen to books while I walk or do other activities. It would be nice to have a 15 second forward option similar to the 15 second back button. I've seen it on other devices, but not the Windows phone app.
9/12/2014Very good app.
9/11/2014Its awesome, I'm going to cancel my audible subscription :D
9/11/2014Happy to be able to read on my cell phone anytime, anywhere. A little difficult to get a new book started with book cover and round and round before can get to table of contents and begin the book.
