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

This app sounds great and I would love to use it. But Bucks will not download. How's me that I need the overdrive app when I have it.

Two words: Not cool! I used this app for a very long time with no hitches and really liked the service. BUT, it unexpectedly stopped working. Apparently there were updates that made it unusable on Windows Phone. I would hope they fix it and choose to continue support for Windows Phone. Disappointed.

Even though I have fast internet and this used to work on my Win 8 phone, this version doesn't seem to do anything on my Win 10 phone. Or at least I can't tell what is happening, downloading, searc hing, etc. Tried to download an audio book and it says I need the app. Obviously I have the app. I used to like it this app 1.5 years ago.

I literally CAN NOT check out a book with this app! I've uninstalled and reinstalled this app multiple times and I'll look up books and it will say that there are results but nothing will show up. I will try to click on the books that are on the front page to borrow it and nothing will happen! Most frustrating app I have ever used. Please update it!

Crashes repeatedly on windows phones. You lose your place in book and there is no way to skip back to where you were. It starts AT THE BEGINNING?! That is ridiculous and extremely frustrating.
