On August 20, 2013, Overdrive will release a significant update to their Media Console apps for iOS and Android devices. Watch the preview above, or check this page for more information on the app and how you can promote Overdrive and prepare to your students and teachers for the update.
Some of the new features:
- A redesigned user interface with an all-new look, streamlined navigation and a one-stop reorganized menu. App functions are just a swipe and tap away.
- Users will be able to sync bookmarks and reading progress across multiple devices using a free, opt-in registration service called OverDrive One.
- Variable speed playback for iOS. Audiobook users’ most requested feature.
- First run tutorial screens. The app now prompts first time users to add libraries and get books.
- System Requirements: OMC v3.0 for Android users requires Android OS v4.0 (or newer). OMC for Android v2.6.5 will remain available for download. OMC for iOS requires iOS 6 (or newer).
Remember, all students and faculty of secondary schools in Granite School District have access to check out and download ebooks and audiobooks via our district’s Overdrive.
