OverDrive Media Console

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

Great for when you are running, biking, working around the house or anything else that allows you to just listen. Connects to the local library for instant checkout and allows me to just listen.

It works great. The only improvement I suggest is to make the inline audio respond like the Bluetooth. Bluetooth pauses the audio when I get a call, but if I'm using an audio cable the audio keeps playing, but I can't hear it.

The Overdrive Media Console app doesn't work on Windows phones. The app fails to load images when searching my library, does not load search results, is incredibly cumbersome when trying to type, and, most importantly, will not actually download an ebook to the bookshelf for reading. Despite promoting their app for windows phones, particularly windows 8 phones, OverDrive has said that they cannot support my Lumia 640 because it is legacy hardware. A phone that is a hair over two years old at the time of writing this. My whole experience with Overdrive can only be described as painful. If it worked as intended that could be forgiven, but it doesn't. Save yourself a headache and get a physical copy of the book from your local library.

This used to be a 4star app. Something changed and it is unusable on my windows phone. It is the only app used by my library for audiobooks and I'm very sad. Please fix it!!!

If I could give zero stars I would. This app only worked once. Since then I have installed and uninstalled many times without success. Seriously flawed. The other issue is that every time I try to get it to work, it tells me the account is not verified. I click on the link, sign in, click the verify button and it still won't work and if I try to check on another title it again tells me it is not verified. Round and round and it STILL doesn't work. Can you fix it???

Can no longer download audio books. The app used to work fine, but the upgrade does not work at all. Please fix this app.

It's ok, needs more speed. Looks like a website wrapper.

This use to be my favorite app. The disregard for the windows platform is quite frankly appalling. It isn't kept up to date and honestly discriminatory toward those the choose to not use android or apple.

I love this app! I can't work out without my audiobooks.
