Do you use OMC to enjoy our eBook service?  Then you may be interested in their latest update.  Here is what’s coming out in v2.6.5:

  • Enhancements made to improve the speed of the in-app browser (iOS)
  • Fixed a bug that causes the app to crash when working from a proxy server (iOS)
  • Improved bad SSL certificate error messaging (iOS)
  • Fixed a bug that prevents page turns beyond page 161 on some devices (Android)
  • Various minor bug fixes and performance improvements on both iOS and Android

Re-authorize your Apple Device after update

Due to a change in Apple’s privacy policies, OverDrive have had to make changes to the way they handle licensing of EPUB eBooks and MP3 audiobooks.  As a result, the OMC for iOS v2.6.5 update will de-authorize every users’ Adobe ID.  Upon opening OMC for the first time after the update, users will be prompted to re-authorize.

Audiobook users that have only partially downloaded an audiobook prior to the update will need to return to the library bookshelf to download any missing parts.  If users try downloading missing parts directly without first reactivating the download from their library website bookshelf, they will receive a ‘downloadManagerErrorDomain:403’ error.

Note: The Adobe authorization and audiobook download issues will only impact iOS users.

OverDrive have created two help articles to help end users through both Adobe authorization and audiobook download:
