New features for our eRead mobile app

Mobile Devices

More and more of our customers are accessing our OverDrive-powered eRead service using their mobile device to checkout eBooks and eAudio. Today, OverDrive is pleased to announce new features for its mobile apps that are sure to increase that usage even further.

With the release of OverDrive® Media Console™ v2.4 for Android™, BlackBerry® and Windows Phone, users can:

  • Return audiobooks as well as eBooks.
  • Find definitions while reading using the dictionary lookup feature. Users can also use Wikipedia search, too!

The system requirements are still the same. The free apps can be installed on phones and devices running…

  • Android v1.5 (or newer)
  • Touch screen BlackBerry OS v4.7 (or newer)
  • Non-touch screen BlackBerry OS v4.5 (or newer)
  • Windows Phone 7 (or newer)

OMC v2.4 for iOS —iPhone®, iPad®, iPod touch®—will have early audiobook returns and dictionary lookup for iOS v4.0 (or newer) available soon.

Users with OverDrive Media Console already installed will get a notification that an update is available.

If you haven’t downloaded the app yet just search for ‘Overdrive Media Console’ on your app store.  For instructions on how to download the app and to check if your device is compatible with our eRead service visit OverDrive’s Media Console.
