Blackberry owners can now borrow ebooks from their local library thanks to a new app from OverDrive, the company which powers lending services for many UK and international libraries.
The app, which can be downloaded from OverDrive’s website and will be available from BlackBerry’s App World soon, is compatible with BlackBerry touch-screen devices running BlackBerry OS v4.7 (or newer) and non-touch-screen devices running BlackBerry OS v4.5 (or newer).
As well as ebooks, members of OverDrive-supplied libraries users can borrow MP3 audiobooks. Borrowed books automatically expire at the end of the lending period.
Overdrive already has apps for Windows Mobile, Android and iOS devices as well as versions for desktop computers running Windows or Mac OS.
