Description

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

Very good app!

This is best app for getting any library book in e form. More popular books needed in epub. Not all authors library are available. Each platform is different to use, IOS is different from android and different in wi does. Fairly easy to set up and use. Sometimes difficult getting back to My Media page.

For the most part this is great. Sometimes the app is slow to load and likes to change pages on you but maybe that's just my phone which is pretty basic for a smart phone.

Fairly easy to use. Only problem is that I need to sign in again each time I add a book to check out. Really annoying if you are looking to check out multiple books.

Nice reader phone app. Good link to my library. Great for reading on the go. Update: Overdrive is now my primary reader. Love it.

I like Overdrive's Android app, but I'm using a Windows phone and it is incredibly buggy. For instance, when listening to an audiobook, if, for instance, you are listening to part 2 of 10 and come to the end of that part, it does not automatically advance to the next part, but you have to manually advance it to the next part. Also, the app does not automatically save my e-mail and password. Instead I have to type the full thing in every time. The older Android app did used to save the password, making it much easier to get books.

OverDrive makes it easy to download and listen to books. It also conveniently picks up where you leave off so you don't have to shuffle back thru chapters.

Most used app on my phone! It's wonderful having a little portable library with you wherever you go, a book lovers dream. I can easily have my phone in my pocket and listen to an audiobook while I'm moving around the house doing things or out for a walk. A great feature it has is it remembers where you left off if you have to return the book before you finish.

Love being able to load books and listen to them while on my daily walks. Also, nice to listen while driving long distances.
