New OverDrive Apps for Android & iOS

OverDrive just released v2.4.2 for Android & iOS

Quote:
Here’s good news for patrons using Apple and Android devices to enjoy eBooks and audiobooks from the library: We recently released new versions of OverDrive Media Console for iOS and Android platforms. With these new apps, users will notice “look and feel” changes as well as improved overall performance.

I just updated my overdrive app on my Droid about ten minutes ago. Please don't tell me it's got a new interface, I was just getting used to the old one!

I haven't tried it out yet. As soon as I'm done listening to Hannibal (from iTunes U), I plan to check out an audiobook from the library. I'll run the app through its paces then.

My dissatisfaction with the Overdrive apps is the inability to return books early. If they have enabled this feature, I am there!

Not sure about the new app, but you can now return MP3 audiobooks early on a Windows PC:

We recently released a new version of OverDrive Media Console for Windows computers. In addition to the usual navigation and playback features enabling users to download and enjoy OverDrive audiobooks, music, and video on Windows computers, the updated desktop application—OMC v3.2.2—allows users to return MP3 audiobooks before the end of the specified lending period. The early-return feature is sure to please your library’s audiobook enthusiasts.

My problem with the OverDrive app is its inability to download Kindle and WMA formats. It only allows EPUB and MP3. Since the vast majority of library audiobooks are in WMA, I find this feature of the app to be basically worthless.

I agree. If they could somehow add support for DRM'd WMA the app would be 1,000 times more worthwhile at least for me.



Here's what's new in the updates...

Android
Quote:
Added large and small Home screen widgets.
Added a multi-column landscape eBook setting.
Added bold fonts to the eBook Font Style setting.
Added eBook image viewer. Long-press any image in the eBook to view full-size, with zoom control.
Other bug fixes and performance improvements.

Multi-column landscape is big.
Especially on tablets...
Off to download we go.

I just downloaded an Adobe protected ePub from my library via Overdrive's Android app. There is an option to return it early - I just did!

What are you trying to return - an ebook or an MP3 audiobook? The new return policy only applies to MP3 audiobooks.

The only thing my Overdrive downloads are my audio books, and I only checkout and/or buy MP3's.

All my ebooks are checked out and/or bought with Adobe ADE () Don't know how to do it differently, but I make it work just fine.

So it's my MP3's on overdrive I'd like to return early.

Try this link from OverDrive:

How to return a borrowed MP3 audiobook using OverDrive Media Console for Windows

Quote:
Note: Only MP3 audiobooks downloaded after you install the OverDrive Media Console v3.2.2.0 update will have the return option.

My OverDrive app can do that. When I go to delete a book, I have the option to "return and delete" for eBooks. The option to return early for audiobooks was supposed to be added in this update.

To the person that asked about the interface: I updated my OverDrive yesterday and the interface looks the same to me. I use it only for eBooks though, so can't speak as to the audiobook interface.
