New apps launched today - December 7, 2010. With the new free OverDrive Media Console app you can download both EPUB eBooks and MP3 audio eBooks directly to your iPhone or Android phone.
Update: if you've downloaded the previous version of Overdrive's app, and are having problems with the e-books appearing after you download them, you may need to delete the app and download it fresh. See commenter Mark's thread below.
Horrible. Keeps crashing. Can't even open the app. Don't upgrade!
It's brand new today. Everyone may be trying to download tonight. If you'll send details of what's happening to firstname.lastname@example.org we can troubleshoot or report any bugs to Overdrive. Tell us what device you're using and what happens, including any error messages.
So there is only 30 audiobooks available?
I downloaded the app to my iPhone, but I have not idea how to use it. You might want to post detailed instructions on how it works with DPL. Thanks.
I go to Add a Website and then choose DPL, but I can't log in to get books. It asks for my library patron number. I'm entering the Dxxxxxxxxx number that is on my card (i.e. that I use to check out books at the library).
Yes, your DPL library card is the number you should use. Be sure to enter a zero (0) for the second character. If you get an error, please report it to email@example.com
It is recognizing my login today. I got logged in, selected a book, checked out, which took me back to the app. It said "Title Added", asked me if I would like to download now. Selected to download now... and....and... the book doesn't show up. Tried the whole thing again, same result. Not impressed so far!
Update: I had to kill the app on my phone and relaunch it in order to see the book I downloaded within the app. You might want to report that as a bug. It will be very confusing for people.
