On August 20, the OverDrive eBook service released a new version of the OverDrive Media Console app for Apple and Android devices.

What's new in version 3.0

  • A new design
  • The ability to sync bookmarks and reading progress across multiple devices using an opt-in registration service called OverDrive One
  • Enhanced help features, including in-app help and guidance for new users
  • The ability to share what you are reading or listening to via email or social media
  • Variable speed playback for eAudiobooks. Listen at a speed that is most comfortable for you (iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch users only)


Here's a preview of what the new version looks like:
