Back in June OverDrive released a new app called Libby for borrowing ebooks and audiobooks from public libraries for free.
It basically does the same thing as the regular OverDrive app, and you have access to the same libraries and content, so I didn’t quite understand its purpose at first, but Libby offers some features the OverDrive app lacks and it’s designed to be more streamlined and easier to use.
One of the advantages with the Libby app is you can sign into multiple libraries using multiple cards, and the same library with different cards, and manage all your books and audiobooks in one place.
The app also has the option to send library ebooks to your Kindle if you’d rather read on it.
Unlike the OverDrive app, it doesn’t support streaming videos, just ebooks and audiobooks, and you can download them for offline use as well.
The Libby app is available for Android, iOS, and Windows 10. It’s also available in the Amazon appstore but it’s currently listed as incompatible with Fire tablets, but it can be easy installed by adding Google Play.
