The New OverDrive App is Here!

 

We're pleased to announce that a new version of the OverDrive app for Android, iOS (iPhone/iPad/iPod touch), and Windows 8 is here!

This update features the long-awaited elimination of the Adobe Authorization step from the app installation process—one of your most frequently requested enhancements! We expect this change will significantly reduce library support questions and provide excellent benefits to users like syncing reading progress across multiple devices and saving libraries and common searches.

First-time users will now be prompted to create an OverDrive account. There is no change for existing users who already have an Adobe ID or OverDrive account associated with their OverDrive app, even after they update to the newest version.

Users under the age of 13 can anonymously authorize the OverDrive app without creating an OverDrive account.

OverDrive v3.2 also includes the following updates:

 
  • The app name has been shortened from "OverDrive Media Console" to "OverDrive." To support the new name, the app website has moved to http://app.overdrive.com.
  • Users will be able to return Open EPUB titles before the end of their lending period. All formats that the app supports can now be returned before expiration.

OverDrive Help articles and videos have been updated to reflect the updates in OverDrive v3.2.

We hope you enjoy the new experience. If you have any questions, please contact OverDrive Support via the Support tab in OverDrive Marketplace.
