OverDrive Media Console is an app that lets you direct download EPUB eBooks and audiobooks and gives you access to more than 13,000 libraries worldwide. The app features a “Get Books” function that makes it easy to find a local library, browse for titles, check them out with a library card, and download directly to BlackBerry. Digital books from the library will automatically expire in the app, so there are never late fees. The app also features an orientation lock and custom bookmarks.
Audible.com is now available as a BlackBerry application. The app lets you shop, sample, download, and playback audio from Audible’s catalog. The application is free, and it’s compatible with the BlackBerry Storm, Bold, Curve 83xx, Pearl and 8800.
If you download the application, you receive a free copy of Thomas Friedman’s Hot, Flat and Crowded audiobook.
