overdrive?

Does anyone know how to set up overdrive on the vox? I've tried different routes and nothing works.

I've asked a mod to move this to the Vox subforum. There is already a thread about that there, but this belongs thee, anyway.

I have followed the URL you have provided for overdrive and it did take me to the site,but after I press agree it says it will download and nothing happens. I see that it has downloaded but I still can't get it to work and the people on the help line have no idea what to do.

Is everything "standard" on your Kobo Vox? I surfed to the Overdrive site using my Vox, downloaded the app, pressed install and then logged in with my usual Adobe ID. I was able to grab a DRM library book from my local library immediately.

Did you drag down the activity window (or whatever its called) and tap the apk to execute it?

Similar problems here. Adobe didn't recognize "credentials" even though I entered ID and password as registered. Also, when I try to download epub from library, I get error message on Overdrive, forcing close. Can't re-open. Downloaded again, same thing. I've also noticed downloaded apps like Overdrive keep disappearing from my downloads folder. Very frustrating.
