The OverDrive app is the "classic" app and is compatible with more devices including Kindle Fire and Windows mobile devices.  If you use accessibility features or like to read your books on a computer (vs mobile device) we recommend the classic Overdrive app.  Otherwise we suggest the Libby app to access the OverDrive collection.
