IOS 7 and Ebooks through the Ohio eBook Project

September 19, 2013

Ebook Customers who use iPads, iPods and iPhones:
If you use the OverDrive Media Console (OMC) to download books from the Ohio eBook Project, if - or when - you upgrade to iOS 7, the app will fail when trying to open a DRM-protected eBook. New or first time users of OMC are unaffected by this issue.
Overdrive is resolving the issue but in the meantime, here are immediate remedies for users:
1) Re-authenticate the app with your existing or a new Adobe ID. Refer to the iOS section of this Help article for assistance. (Recommended)  
2) Uninstall and re-install the OMC app which will also require the user to re-authorize with Adobe. IMPORTANT NOTE: A re-install will clear your bookshelf, history, and app settings.
Audiobook users won't notice that anything is different unless they attempt to download parts of audiobooks they already downloaded to OMC before upgrading to iOS 7. A user will receive an error message informing them to download the title again. 

We'll keep you posted.
