OverDrive Media Console Review
by on November 12, 2010
At first OverDrive Media Console seems like it’s offering something rarely seen with Windows Mobile: a well designed interface. The female narrator of the demo track purrs into your ear about how easy and wonderful a system OverDrive is to use, how it’ll transform your listening-life into something, wonderful. It’s after this taster of audiobook playback nirvana that the stark reality hits, as you begin to wonder how do you actually add files to your device.
Effectively this is a slick frontend to a DRM-designed download system for libraries and third-party digital bookstores. The problem is getting the content is a step that isn’t built into the OverDrive app. This effectively adds extra unnecessary and awkward steps in using what should be a great app. Additionally you can’t just go ‘play this MP3 file’ as OverDrive will just ignore it in disgust, despite proclaiming MP3 compatibility. For library goers that use this system the annoyances will quickly pay off, for everyone else it’ll just put you off.
