If you want to download the same ebooks to the OverDrive app on multiple devices, always sign into the app with the same OverDrive account on each device

If you want to download the same eBooks to both the OverDrive app and Adobe Digital Editions (ADE) on a computer, you'll need to authorize ADE and the app with the same OverDrive account or Adobe ID.

With newer versions of the OverDrive app (see the app's system requirements and compatible devices here), you can sync your progress and bookmarks for downloaded eBooks, audiobooks, and streaming videos across multiple devices, as long as:

  1. You've signed into the app with your OverDrive account (using the same account on each device).
  2. You've added each title to the OverDrive app from your library's website.
  3. You have an active internet connection.

As long as all 3 conditions noted above are true, your progress and bookmarks will automatically sync when you open or close a title in the OverDrive app.
