OverDrive Media Console V3.0 available (Android and iOS)

Just as predicted the updated version of the OverDrive Media Console app is now ready for the masses.

From the official changelog, here's what's new in V3.0:
  • New look. Simplified menus put everything a swipe and a tap away.
  • Sync across devices. Sync recent position and bookmarks across devices. (Titles must be downloaded to both devices for this to work).
  • First-time user guidance. The app now provides some guidance to help new users get started.

Links to the free download: iOS and Android

The menu structure is a big improvement

Still, no support for Chrome OS. A major reason why I haven't switched yet.

OMC is getting to be a pretty decent ePub app.

One annoyance (at least the last time I tried it) is that despite the fact that you must authorize with an Adobe ID, you cannot side load DRM content (that is locked with the same Adobe ID). I've no idea why they would restrict it.

Haven't tried sync yet. Wonder how that's implemented? One doesn't have an account with Overdrive, so they must be keying off the AdobeID and some info from the ePub file.

You set up an OverDrive One account. Username, email, and password is all that's required. It's in the left side menu.

I checked out an MP3 audiobook and tested the sync feature with three devices -- Nexus 7 v2, Fire HD 7, and iPod touch 4 -- and it works nicely. The audiobook must be downloaded on all devices you wish to sync.

A bonus feature for iOS devices only is variable-speed playback -- .5x, 1x, 1.25x, 1.5x, 1.75x, 2x.

Contrary to an earlier post I made, this upgrade will have a positive impact on me. I stand corrected. The audiobook sync is a great feature.

I'm glad I have Titanium Backup and can restore previous versions. I'm back to version 2.6.6 where the zoom still works when visiting the library site to borrow books. The font is so small that I can't use it without zooming. Does anyone else have this problem - the zoom not working?

I don't actually browse the libraries from within OMC. I only use it for downloading after checking out the book with the normal browser.

Thanks. I have 4.2.2 and 4.1.1 and the zoom doesn't work on either device. When you touch the webpage, the + and - to zoom show up on the bottom of the screen but they don't work.

Zoom works on my Nexus 4. I tried out 2 libraries in case it differs between the libraries, but it worked with both.
Have not yet updated my other Android and iOS devices.
