Good app, but need some improvements

Good for reading more pages than the Android and iOS versions, but problem is that annotating need a variety of colors, not just one color, like green. If there were a variety of colors for annotations, this app would have gotten a 5 star review.

The app makes it easy to get to my books anywhere I go. I can read if I'm waiting for an appointment, or even at a boring gathering. Help's to pass the time. I really like how it keeps my page no matter which device I switch to! 4 stars well deserved

I rate this app with 4 stars

I can view edit and highlight my books and magazines, this is a practical feature. If I was to improve any thing it would be the high lighting feature. I would replace it with one similar to the one found in the iPad. Otherwise this is an excellent app.

Best reading / magazine app

Quick downloads and page loading (compared to other e-readers), bright and clean style, easy to navigate, great selection...by far the best e-reader out there.

See EVERYBODY's complaints on Win10 and this app. Found work-around for my devices on-line. With Nook off, switch to tablet mode (even desktop); Auto-hide taskbar (enter this into your search bar and it will bring up the needed application it is one of the options) click the check-box and apply, then open your Nook application. Just remember to uncheck auto-hide and return to desktop mode when you want your desktop back

USELESS for windows10!

This app is completely useless for Windows 10 machines. All the reader displays is the corner of the text. Sometimes it's enough to disrupt basic reading, on all occasions it is enough to render the annotation/markup feature completely useless. Get your act together Nook. Your software has always been a stepchild and I will NEVER purchase another e-reader from Barnes&Noble until you give me alternatives that function on the PC. If you want users to "buy into" a system do what Kindle does and provide a system that works. Otherwise, right now, you appear like a company intent on holding MY books hostage so that I have to purchase one of your readers. I'll get another tab from another company and pray for rain (that the software actually works) before I give you cynics another red cent.

Quarter view

Not ready for prime time. Quarter view of magazines and books on my Surface Pro 4 running Win10. On my iPad when I read the Economist I can click a button and simply share an article. No such option here, either screen clips or copy pasting needed. A good magazine/book reader is needed. This isn't it. Yet.

1. The display doesn't align with page break-ups: text is cut off at the bottom of the screen. 2. Sometimes when navigating it takes me back to a previous page or loads a blank page, especially at chapter breaks. 3. The last book I tried to download gave me an error, even after doing the recommended fixes.

Easily accessible but lacks in quality

I like being able to find it quickly on the computer but the way it displays the text and doesn't allow graphics to completely show up for my textbook is very annoying and hurts me getting the information I need for an assignment-won't be using again for school related reading material
