Description

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.

    Please improve Windows version by Curtis

    UPDATE! The App is STILL not working correctly! I'm tempted to convert to an android device! Microsoft acts like they don't care about those of us who prefer their devices. Recently the App had stopped letting you download audio books. The book covers no longer appear and the "You may also like" section never loads. Please restore the basic function of the App.

    Don't bother if you have a windows phone 8.1 and below. My app suddenly stopped working and after contacting support was informed they are no longer supporting the app for windows phone, even currently they dont have anything really for windows 10 phones either. They are currently working to remove the app from the windows phone store. No solution offered just a Shitty thing to do to loyal users who happen to have windows phones.

    STILL does not auto play by Tim

    Playback stops at the end of every part, or file, and I have to manually navigate to the next part (often it will jump back to a place halfway through the previous part). I'm in the habit of bookmarking my place every couple of minutes so I don't lose my place... Not a smooth experience at all.

    Needs an update by Daniel

    Thanks for supporting Windows, but now once I login to my library, unable to request a book, the process just gives spinning icon . Found work around to loan the book from PC, then download on phone, but this is not convenient.
