OverDrive has announced a new version of the OverDrive app for Android, iOS (iPhone/iPad/iPod touch), and Windows 8 that is scheduled for release in mid-September.
This update features the long-awaited elimination of the Adobe Authorization step from the app installation process -- one of your most frequently requested enhancements! To continue to fulfill the requirement for copyrighted materials, users will register for an OverDrive account instead. We expect this change will significantly reduce library support questions and provide excellent benefits to users like syncing reading progress across multiple devices and saving libraries and common searches.
When the new app is released, first-time users will be prompted to create an OverDrive account. There will be no change for existing users who already have an Adobe ID or OverDrive account associated with their OverDrive app, even after they update to the newest version.
Users under the age of 13 will be able to anonymously authorize the OverDrive app without creating an OverDrive account.
OverDrive v3.2 will also feature the following updates:
Penny Brown began work at Fairfield as a Shelver on August 27.
