New OverDrive App for Kindle Fire – Updates for Other Platforms

Earlier this month, I reported the release of OverDrive Media Console for Nook Color (also Nook HD, Nook HD+, Nook Tablet), to be found in the Nook Apps storefront. [OverDrive’s announcement]  This allows patrons to download ePub e-books and mp3 audiobooks directly to the device.  Today, I am pleased to announce there is now an OverDrive Media Console app for Kindle Fire, available in the Amazon App Store for Android. [OverDrive’s announcement]  This app will be especially helpful for downloading those titles that previously required download to a computer and USB transfer to the device, as well as those user who would like to download audiobooks from the library.

In other news, an update to the OverDrive Media Console app (ver. 2.6) has been released. [Overdrive’s announcement]  Some of the improvements include support for iPhone 5, support for the action bar in Android, a redesigned audiobook player, and the ability to share what you are reading to your social media (Facebook, Twitter, Goodreads, etc.) profiles.  If you app is outdated, you will be prompted to update next time you open it.
