Overdrive to discontinue support for Blackberry app

By Jamie W. RSS Tue, April 8, 2014

Effective April 10, 2014, the OverDrive Media Console (OMC) mobile app for BlackBerry will no longer be available to download on BlackBerry, BlackBerry 10, and Playbook devices.

BlackBerry users with the app installed prior to April 10 will be able to continue downloading eBooks and audiobooks via OMC. However, Overdrive reports that no further development or testing will be dedicated to it.

In the past year, BlackBerry use of Overdrive ebook collections has declined. So, after much consideration, OverDrive has decided to remove the app from BlackBerry App World and continue to focus development efforts on more widely used platforms such as iOS and Android.
