Last week we saw that mobile device use increased to 22% of all checkouts of eBooks and audiobooks from OverDrive-powered libraries. Today, OverDrive is pleased to announce new features for its mobile apps that are sure to increase that usage even further.
With the release of OverDrive® Media Console™ v2.4 for Android™, BlackBerry® and Windows Phone, users can:
- Return audiobooks as well as eBooks.
- Find definitions while reading using the dictionary lookup feature. Users can also use Wikipedia search, too!
The system requirements are still the same. The free apps can be installed on phones and devices running…
- Android v1.5 (or newer)
- Touch screen BlackBerry OS v4.7 (or newer)
- Non-touch screen BlackBerry OS v4.5 (or newer)
- Windows Phone 7 (or newer)
OMC v2.4 for iOS —iPhone®, iPad®, iPod touch®—will have early audiobook returns and dictionary lookup for iOS v4.0 (or newer) available soon.
Users with OverDrive Media Console already installed will get a notification that an update is available. To get the update now, click here.
