New Feature in OMC App Explained

defineWe had a patron who’s trying to use the “touch a word to get a definition” in the OMC app, on his Samsung tablet, while he is NOT connected to the Internet. He gets an error every time he tries it. It works fine (offline) on his iPad.

We checked with Overdrive. Touch to Define (offline) is ONLY a feature on the iOS App. Android devices MUST be connected to the Internet for that feature to work.

Adding “Touch to Define Offline” to the Android App is on their Wish List, but it’s not in development at this time, and there’s no ETA for that.

To learn more about how to use this feature along with taking notes see the OverDrive Help article How to take notes, highlight text, and use the dictionary in an OverDrive Read eBook
