We received an announcement from our ebook/audiobook vendor Overdrive that their app is not compatible with iOS7, the new version of the operating system for Apple iPhones, iPads, etc:
"When an existing OverDrive Media Console (OMC) user upgrades to iOS 7, the app will fail when trying to open a DRM-protected eBook. "
Virtually all of our ebooks -- except for public-domain titles -- are "DRM-protected". If you have tried to update your app, here is the remedy for users:
"1) Re-authenticate the app with their existing or a new Adobe ID. Refer to the iOS section of this Help article for assistance. (Recommended)

The company is working on the problem and we will let you know when it has been sorted out.
