New Updates to Your Mobile eBook Apps!

An updated OverDrive Media Console (OMC) app v2.6.5 for iOS and Android will be released on May 29. The new OMC for iOS will enhance the speed of the in-app browser and fix bugs. Due to Apple’s change in its privacy policies, the OMC for iOS update will de-authorize every user’s Adobe ID and prompt them to authorize again. Audiobook users won’t be affected unless attempting to download parts from a book that was partially downloaded prior to the update. The Android update will fix bugs.
