OverDrive Releases Their Free ePub eBook Reader for PlayBook OS 2.0

OverDrive OverDrive2 OverDrive3 

I have been waiting for OverDrive to bring their OverDrive Media Console to the BlackBerry PlayBook. From what I can tell they have done it by using the new Android Player to port their Android app to PlayBook OS 2.0 so this is OS 2.0+ for now. In case you are not familiar with OverDrive they provide you access to over 18,000 libraries worldwide to get both eBooks and AudioBooks. You can check them out from Libraries nearby or even load your own ePub eBooks though I have not managed to get that to work yet.

OverDrive Media Console is definitely one of those apps that you want to have installed on your PlayBook if you have OS 2.0. You can pick up OverDrive Media Console free in App World.

  1. It’s a bummer they haven’t written a native app. Lately I’ve been staying away from Android apps as more native stuff gets released. Still it does work pretty well although I have yet to check a book out from my local library.

  2. That is so cool! Just borrowed my first book from the library in 20 years, wished it had been e-book, forgot how heavy and rather inconvenient to lug around a hard cover novel! 🙂 Can’t wait for 2.0

  3. Another great reason to be excited about the month of February and OS2

  4. Can’t wait!!!
