Apple Owners: iOS7 eBook Trouble!

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)  

2) Uninstall and re-install OMC which will also require the user to re-authorize with Adobe. IMPORTANT NOTE: A re-install will clear a user's bookshelf, history, and app settings."

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

You can read the full announcement from Overdrive here.
