New Version of OverDrive Media Console Coming Aug. 20

OverDrive is releasing a new version of their OMC on August 20th. OMC v3.0 will feature:
  • A redesigned user interface with an all-new look, streamlined navigation and a one-stop reorganized menu. App functions are just a swipe and tap away.
  • Users will be able to sync bookmarks and reading progress across multiple devices using a free, opt-in registration service called OverDrive One.
  • Variable speed playback for iOS. Audiobook users’ most requested feature.
  • First run tutorial screens. The app now prompts first time users to add libraries and get books.
  • System Requirements: OMC v3.0 for Android users requires Android OS v4.0 (or newer). OMC for Android v2.6.5 will remain available for download. OMC for iOS requires iOS 6 (or newer). If you have an older version of iOS, you can still use the older version of the OMC.

This is just like any other app update (you'll see it pending as an update) in that all of your titles will transfer over, your Adobe ID will transfer over, etc.
