Return audiobooks early on Android, BlackBerry, iOS & Windows Phone 7!

There's some new features on the latest Overdrive Media Console for Android, BlackBerry, iOS (iPhone®/iPad®/iPod touch®) & Windows Phone 7

  • Dictionary look-up: Define words and impress your friends with your expanding vocabulary (Android, BlackBerry, and Windows Phone only. It's in the works for iOS).
  • Return audiobooks: Finally! Return audiobooks as soon as you finish listening so you can explore the next one. Don’t forget you can do the same with eBooks!
  • Audiobook sleep timer: Set the timer and your book shuts off when you do.
  • eBook orientation lock: Enable this setting, and you can rock without the roll!
