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

Don't bother if you have a windows phone 8.1 and below. My app suddenly stopped working and after contacting support was informed they are no longer supporting the app for windows phone, even currently they dont have anything really for windows 10 phones either. They are currently working to remove the app from the windows phone store. No solution offered just a Shitty thing to do to loyal users who happen to have windows phones.

From OverDrive tech support: Unfortunately, we no longer support OverDrive Media Console for Windows Phone and are working to remove it from the Windows Store. However, our developers are working on a new solution for Windows 10 Mobile users, which should be available in the near future.

Excellent. Thank you. Enables a person with hand problems holding a book to continue to enjoy reading from library. So this previous sentence was my joy in 2015, 2016. So it worked well for years. Now as of 19/04/2017 it is not functioning. I can't access any books.

I don't understand why there is no option to log in to my Overdrive account on the front page.

Used to work very well and was really easy. Something happened with an update and now the titles from a library don't load completely, the links don't work, search results don't load and downloading doesn't always work. The computer app works but not the phone, which is what I use more often. It also doesn't allow syncing between devices.

New updates has made this application no longer compatible with Windows 8.1. Which bites. Being able to listen to books while at work made the night go by much faster....now what Audible....I don't have the money for it. 😢
