Kindle Fire Users Rejoice: OverDrive Comes to Amazon App Store:
Now that the OverDrive Media Console app is available in the Amazon App Store for Android, it’s easier for users of the Kindle Fire to access eBooks from OverDrive-powered libraries.
With OMC v2.6, we’ve further refined the browsing experience. Users can now browse their library’s digital collection from within the application—no need to launch a separate browser window.
Other key updates:
- Redesigned audiobook player
- Support for iPhone 5 (OMC for iOS)
- Support for ActionBar (OMC for Android (Honeycomb and newer))
- Share what you’re reading on Goodreads (as well as Facebook, Twitter and via email)
The system requirements have not changed: Android v2.1 (or newer); iOS v4.2 (or newer).
If you already have OMC installed, you’ll see an “update” prompt the next time you open the app. Otherwise, download the updated apps here:
- Amazon App Store for Android
- App StoreSM
- Google Play
- OverDrive Downloads Page
- NOOK Apps store (coming soon)
