A Multi-Taskers FREE Dream Come True!
This software is easy to use, it's FREE, and the volume of audio books will keep you listening for years. Because I multi-task I can listen to an audio book while crafting, cooking, driving, etc. With the power of your local library card you can experience the world!More
I finally have time to read again!
I agree with others, that it's a bit tricky to navigate at first, but once you get it, the opportunities are endless! It's hard working full time and being a home owner, but this app allows me to enjoy "reading" while going about chores around the house. It makes literature that much more accessible to otherwise busy people!More
Overdrive makes accessing our public library easy and hassle free. I am able to access e=books and audio books online from the comfort of my own home. With my busy schedule returning books on time is done automatically. I don't have to worry about overdue books anymore. Overdrive is a great way to take advantage of a valuable public resource.More
I have low expectations for offerings on the Windows Store in its infancy, but this app is one you wouldn't expect to be good and actually is. Easy to use interface, supports many file types (not just library books - you can add your own eBooks too).More
I'm Okay With It
I like this app. I don't like all the updates and the deduction of features that was useful to me. I also use this app quite a lot for audio books as well as ebooks but I don't like the fact I can't transfer my ebooks once in Overdrive. Now I'm find I can only use this app on two of my devices. It does some of what I want it to do but with all the features being deducted or limited - I might have to look for another app.More
I gave an earlier review, pointing out several of Overdrive's flaws. I am happy to say that those problems were fixed. What I still wish is a way to be notified when a favored author adds new titles to Overdrive. Finding books in general is easy. Returns have become more straight forward. I hate to say it, but I haven't been to my physical library in almost a year.More
Excellent for E- and Audiobooks
I have used overdrive on an Apple device and a Microsoft device and it works well with both. This is a super convenient way to browse and check out books when I am on the go (or if the paper version is out!). I will continue to use this program daily!More
Lots of choices
Some of the readers are wonderful, they put a lot of effort into their work, others not so much. Sometimes, the chapters go silent. Not even restarting will bring it back. I have that problem with internetarchive.org audio books sometimes too. Overall, the service is easy to use and has a good selection.More
eReader for all
Navigation and options are a bit tricky. But once you get the hang of it, does a great job of doing what it's supposed to do, which is to let you read/listen to books!More
