OverDrive Releases Android Audiobook App
OverDrive, Inc. (www.overdrive.com), a global distributor of audiobooks and ebooks to libraries and retailers, announced the beta release of an audiobook app that enables Android phone and device owners to wirelessly download digital audiobooks. OverDrive's audiobook app for Android is compatible with MP3 audiobooks from more than 10,000 libraries and major online retailers, including BarnesandNoble.com, BooksOnBoard.com, and Borders.com. To download this audiobook app for Android devices, including the DROID by Motorola, visit www.overdrive.com/software/omc. To find libraries offering MP3 audiobooks, visit http://search.overdrive.com.
OverDrive Media Console for Android beta v.0.1 provides the same superior audiobook listening experience as OverDrive's desktop software, which boasts millions of PC and Mac users worldwide. Users can navigate downloaded parts using MediaMarker, create bookmarks, and resume from the last point played. Audiobooks from the public library automatically expire in the app, so there is never a late fee.
OverDrive provides download services for thousands of libraries, retailers, and schools worldwide with support for PC, Mac, and Sony Reader, as well as the largest collection of iPod-compatible audiobooks for libraries. OverDrive also operates the Digital Bookmobile (www.digitalbookmobile.com), a high-tech 18-wheeler traveling North America on behalf of public libraries to raise awareness about free library downloads.
