The official OverDrive Media Console app has been released in the Windows Store for more than a year now, but I’ve been closely watching the app and only now has it received an update worth talking about.

For those who are new to this app, OverDrive Media Console acts like a service from where you can download ebooks and audiobooks to your own library. It’s now received a big update that especially those who have installed it need to know about. First of all, there has been added the integration with the ‘classic’ Windows desktop OMC app on an eligible device which will support burning to CD and transferring to portable devices. Also, you can now sync bookmarks across supported devices with your OverDrive One account. Other new features included in the app are font selection and dictionary support to the eBook reader, as well as variable speed playback, sleep timer, and skip forward 15 seconds button to the audiobook player. Of course, the traditional bug fixes and improvements are there, as well.
