OverDrive is in the middle of rolling out a series of updates to its apps, and they will be adding a couple useful features.

The updated apps now allow patrons to return audiobooks early, a feature which had only worked with eBooks before. The new apps also have  new dictionary lookup feature, and users can search for terms in Wikipedia.

The OverDrive Media Console apps let patrons download eBooks and audiobooks from over 18 thousand partner libraries. Apps are available for Windows, OSX, BlackBerry, Windows Phone 7, Android, and the iPad.

The new abilities are already available in the Android, Blackberry, and Windows Phone 7 apps, and the iPad/iPhone apps will be getting the updates in the next few weeks.
