iPhone App for Downloadable AudioBooks

OverDrive has released the OverDrive’s audiobook app for iPhone, which enables users to wirelessly download MP3 audiobooks from OverDrive-powered library websites directly to iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. To obtain the app search for “OverDrive Media Console” in the Apple App Store. And like all OverDrive audiobook apps, the iPhone app is free.

Speaking of our other applications, they also pushed out updates for OverDrive Media Console for Windows, as well as  BlackBerry and Windows Mobile apps. Here’s what you can expect from the updates:

  • OverDrive for Windows v3.2.0.5 includes improved support for transfer to OverDrive’s BlackBerry, Windows Mobile, and Android audiobook apps.
  • OverDrive for BlackBerry v1.0 moves the app from beta to official release, with a few fixes to enhance the user experience.
  • OverDrive for Windows Mobile v1.1 updates the user interface to match our other mobile apps. (Required update)

Even with all of today’s updates, they are already planning the next generation of OverDrive apps.  They are working on a  next gen OverDrive app for Android, with support for both eBook and audiobook downloads in a single app. They are also working to integrate eBook downloads into their  apps for other mobile platforms.

  1. Another great place to discover new poems is the new spoken word poetry album “Poetic License: 100 Poems/100 Performers” featuring Jason Alexander, Patti LuPone, Michael York, Kate Mulgrew, Paul Provenza and 95 other top performers reading a poem of their choosing. If you know anyone who claims that they don’t like poetry, you should get them this album so they can hear the magic that you already see on the page.
    For more info, “Poetic License” is available for purchase and preview on iTunes.
