OverDrive Apps Now Support Direct Ebook Downloads

OverDrive, a global distributor of ebooks, audiobooks, and digital content to libraries and schools, has released apps for iPhone and Android that enable users to download library ebooks and audiobooks directly to their devices for the first time. The free apps include a “Get Books” feature that guides users to their local library's digital catalog of best-selling and new release titles, allowing them to easily browse, check out, and download with just their device. More than 13,000 public libraries, schools, colleges, and universities now offer ebook and audiobook downloads via OverDrive, including institutions in the U.S., U.K., Australia, Canada, and nine other countries.

To download the free OverDrive Media Console app for iPhone and iPod touch, users can visit the Apple AppStore. Owners of Android tablets and phones, including Droid X by Motorola, Samsung GALAXY Tab, Cruz Tablet, and HTC EVO 4G, can find the app in the Android Market. To see if your public library is a member of the OverDrive network, visit http://search.overdrive.com.

OverDrive’s apps for iPhone and Android give users wireless access to their library’s EPUB ebook and MP3 audiobook catalog without a PC. With the apps, users can create bookmarks and resume from the last point read. The ebook and audiobook titles from the public library automatically expire in the app, so there is never a late fee.
