Yesterday we let you know that OverDrive Media Console for BlackBerry PlayBook was updated to v2.4.2. Well this update was causing some issues when trying to download the update. A couple of people let us know in the comments that the update would throw an error at 50% others were reporting that it would download and install but the application would not open. With that being said, OverDrive Media Console has received another update today and the application seems to be working fine at this time.
OverDrive Media Console gives you on-the-go access to eBooks and audiobooks from your public, school, or college library. More than 18,000 libraries worldwide offer best-selling and classic titles via OverDrive, so use the ‘Get Books’ feature in the app to find a library near you.
Digital titles from your library are borrowed just like print material. Once you find your library using ‘Get Books’, you can browse your library’s digital collection on the web, check out a title with a valid library card, and download the title directly to your BlackBerry.
Each EPUB eBook and MP3 audiobook that you check out has a lending period. While borrowing the digital title, you can enjoy it using the app’s eBook reader or audiobook player. The title automatically expires in the app at the end of the lending period, so there’s never a late fee. There’s even a handy countdown clock built into the app so you know how long you have to read or listen before the title expires.
