Can I download audiobooks from the library to my iPod or my iPhone?
You will see links to both services on our E-Library Audiobooks page.
OverDrive has released an app for iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad. The OverDrive Media Console app allows you to download EPUB e-books and MP3 audiobooks directly to your Apple device. For further instructions about Overdrive's MP3 titles and Apple devices, see http://help.overdrive.com/article/0008/How-to-enjoy-audiobooks-with-OverDrives-mobile-app-for-iOS.
If you use a Windows computer and download the mandatory OverDrive Media Console, you can download both WMA and MP3 titles on Overdrive and then transfer them to your iPod. For further instructions about WMA Overdrive's WMA titles and Apple devices, see http://help.overdrive.com/article/0002/How-to-transfer-audiobooks-to-an-iPhone-iPad-or-iPod-using-OverDrive-Media-Console-for-Windows . Be sure to take the steps described there to set your device to "Manually manage music."
If you use a Mac, you will be limited to Overdrive's MP3 titles only, because Macs don't comply with the WMA files' digital rights management. Overdrive's Advanced Search functions will allow you to limit your search results by format to MP3.
All titles will work with iPods and other Apple devices for those using Windows computers.
Mac users who install OneClickDigital Media Manager can transfer all titles to iPods and other Apple devices. Mac users without the Media Manager will be able to transfer only those titles without DRM.
OneClickDigital also has an app for iOS (and Android) .
