OverDrive’s iOS App Updated – Now Supports Dictionary Lookup

OverDrive is now distributing Harry Potter ebooks to its 18 thousand member libraries, but that’s not their only news this week. They’ve just pushed out an update for the OverDrive Media Console app for iPhone and iPad.

The update is  few weeks late but it’s worth the wait.  It adds a key feature that a lot of us need in eBooks: dictionary. You can now look up words in the eBooks you checkout from the library. Just tap a word with your finger to find the definition. You can also navigate to the corresponding Wikipedia page for more information.

The OverDrive Media Console app is available for iOS, Android, BlackBerry, and PC. It reads Epub as well as audiobooks checked out from OverDrive’s partner libraries
