Overdrive Media Console available for Fire

I think OMD has been in the Appstore for at least a little while (August?) but Amazon would not let you download it to Fire, it had to be side-loaded. Perhaps in response to B&N's decision to make it available in Nook Store last week, Amazon's throwing the Fire-enable switch this week. If you don't want to sync or backup annotations, or don't like library books being added to your Kindle Library, it's a couple of steps easier than the process for borrowing a book in Kindle format. OMD gets regular updates and it is better than it used to be.

This was great to get as an Amazon approved version of Overdrive, but I wasn't able to get my sideloaded books to load. I tried to click to them through ES File Explorer, saying to open with Overdrive, and once Overdrive opened it said "Error importing EPUB. This version of OverDrive Media Console cannot import Adobe EPUBs fulfilled outside of this app."

Anybody else having this issue? Is there a workaround?

Is this out now, I purchased it in August but it is not showing up as downloadable on the Fire?

I don't think the overdrive app is for ADE sideloaded epub. You can use it to download epub or mp3 directly from your local library.

You can side load DRM free ePub.

I just played with this app today on a Kindle Fire 2 and was able to checkout a Kindle book straight from the app; no computer involved. I had no idea that Kindle books were available through this app.

Here's the October news release from OverDrive.

It's cool, because now I can check out books for my K4 by using a Fire and bypassing a computer.
