Important notice to apple users. Apple has released iOS 7.  When an existing OverDrive Media Console (OMC) user upgrades to iOS 7, the app will fail when trying to open a eBook. New or first time users of OMC are unaffected by this issue.  Here are the steps to fix this problem:  1) Re-authenticate the app with your 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. Audiobook users won't notice that anything is different unless they attempt to download parts of audiobooks they already downloaded to OMC before upgrading to iOS 7. A user will receive an error message informing them to download the title again.
