OverDrive will release an updated version of the OverDrive Media Console (OMC) mobile app for iOS and Android (v2.6.5) on Tuesday, May 29.
Due to a change in Apple's privacy policies, they’ve had to make changes to the way they handle licensing of EPUB eBooks and MP3 audiobooks. As a result, the OMC for iOS v2.6.5 update will de-authorize every users’ Adobe ID and prompt them to authorize again. Audiobook users will be unaffected unless attempting to download parts from a book that was only partially downloaded prior to the v2.6.5 update.
Customers will need to download the title again from the North Carolina Digital Library website bookshelf to download the missing parts.
Note: The issues with Adobe authorization and audiobook downloads will not impact the Android release of OMC v2.6.5.
If you have trouble after the update and re-authorizing your device, or have questions about our downloadable media, we are here to help. Please call 336-703-3007 or your local branch during open hours or ask your librarian anytime.
