iOS 7, eBooks and You

iOS 7

iOS 7 has been released, and many of you Apple users may have upgraded your device or will be upgrading in the near future.

If you're already using library eBooks on your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch, your Overdrive Media Console app will fail when trying to open a library eBook.

A fix is in the works, but in the meantime, the immediate remedy is re-authorize the app with your Adobe ID. If that doesn't work, the next step is to uninstall and re-install Overdrive Media Console app which will also require you to re-authorize with Adobe. IMPORTANT NOTE: A re-install will clear the bookshelf, history, and app settings from the app.

Your Bookshelf of checked-out eBooks will still be available from your eMedia Account so you can re-download any titles you still have checked out.
