Has anyone downloaded the OverDrive app for the iPad? I downloaded it to use with my local public library's e-book loaning process to read e-books through the iPad. Every time I go into the app, it wants me to add my local library's website. How can I save my local library's website on the OverDrive app settings?

iOS 4

    Did you click on Add a Website? It will take you to the Overdrive website where you can search for your library and login.

    Try the Help button on the bottom of the app - it's a very good guide to using it.

    I did click on the Add a Website. But this is what I am trying to avoid. I do not want to have to keep on adding a website everytime I want to go to my local library's website. Why doesn't it automatically add it when I go to the website and just click it once? How do I add the website?

    I went through the same thing. All you need to do is download something from the library once and it will show up in your saved websites.

    Thanks! After I downloaded my first book, the website saved on the Overdrive app. I looked over the Help guide and nowhere did it state on how to save a library's website. I only wished that it wouldn't have taken you outside of the Overdrive app to access the local library's system. Anyways, thanks for all the help.

    I have my library's website saved but how do I save my library card number without having to login every time? I only closed out of the browser but did not log out. I would expect it to only close out of the application and not log me out the next time I log in.

    I downloaded it on my iPhone, iPad and MacBook Air. I looked up a local library that offers ebooks, audio books and other media and logged in. Found an interesting title and downloaded it too all three machines and it works perfectly...
