OverDrive's eBook & eAudio app optimized for iPad

If you're an iPad owner and been patiently waiting for the library to offer eBooks enhanced for your tablet, you're in luck. The OverDrive Media Console vers. 2.2 has just been released, specifically written to take full advantage of the iPad screen.

Whether you're reading an EPUB eBook, listening to an MP3 audiobook, or browsing the OverDrive library, the app -- which includes the iPhone and iPod Touch -- now supports landscape and portrait orientation, and a new calendar icon, which displays the number of days left until the title expires. The free app is available in the App Store, and can be installed on Apple devices running iOS vers. 4.0 (or newer). Users with OverDrive Media Console already installed will be notified that an update is available.
