eBook News: OverDrive App and OneClickDigital


OverDrive app on Android and Apple devicesOverDrive App

 

An update to the OverDrive Media Console app for downloading eBooks to Android and iOS devices was just released yesterday.  In addition to improvements to the interface and performance, here are some highlights of this release (v3.0):

 

  • Streamlined navigation and reorganized more accessible menus with expanded settings options.  No more getting bounced out of the app when you want to check out new eBook titles from OverDrive's site!
  • Sync bookmarks and reading progress across multiple devices using a free, opt-in registration service called OverDrive One.
  • Variable audiobook speed playback for iOS.
  • First-run tutorial screens. The app now prompts first-time users to add libraries and get books.
  • System Requirements: OMC v3.0 for Android users requires Android OS v4.0 (or newer). OMC for Android v2.6.5 will remain available for download. OMC for iOS requires iOS 6 (or newer).

Returning users may be prompted to install the new version of the app.

The OneClickDigital eAudiobook service will be unavailable this weekend from Saturday, August 24 at 3:00 AM until approximately Monday, August 26, 2013 at 5:00 AM while they are upgrading their system to offer eBooks.  When the system comes back up, a new collection of classic titles will be available for immediate checkout.  Look for a new eBook format icon alongside the familiar eAudio ones.  The eBooks are available in ePub formats and can be managed with Adobe Digital Editions.  These titles have unlimited access, so no holds or waiting lists!
