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

I read twice of what I used to since I switch to ebooks; I also enjoy a great deal of audiobooks and thanks to this app I get to experience both for free. It's user friendly and once you get used to navigating on it, you can easily browse for books, place holds, and add future reads to your wish list for easy access. Only reason why I don't give it 5 stars is because it takes a little while to load. Other than that, works great for me.

I like the app. But everything loads so slowly. Makes it tough to use.

Had some issues with the app losing books. Still sometimes will lose the place-holder and I will have to find my place manually. Once in awhile it will not fast forward thru to the next section, but will restart the section instead... Frustrating when this happens after the app loses where you were and you are searching. Overall though I really like the app, I like having the ability to listen to books on my 2+ hour commute. I deleted it off my phone for awhile because of the issues, but came back, so that should say something...

It is functional. However, it crashes often. Sometimes, the words don't load all the way and I have to close the app and reopen it to read.

Works well. Page turning is a little sluggish.

Hangs or crashes on an all to regular basis. But I do like how it ties into my local library.

Hats off. Thank you for bringing my library to my phone. This app is great. A little confusing to fumble through the settings to get things downloading, but I managed within an hour and am otherwise more satisfied than I thought I would be. Thanks.

Has some problem like telling me I cannot play on my device while playing on my device. I stop it and try to go back in it will not play. Would love for that to be fixed
