Happy Desktop Reading

I am happy that the NOOK app works on my Win 10 computers again. I appreciate the adaptability that makes it possible to read with large enough print and a dull background. Easy to navigate and easy to focus, speed read when I care to.

Liked the nook for pc better.

I definitely like the variety, Nook has too offer. What I have trouble with is the last page read is not saved. I end up reading the same thing over and over because it resets back to where I started instead of where I last read. Getting used to fhe new layout or features like the bookmark is confusing for me as well.

Eat, Pray Love

My other half and I take classes where we read the same books. Nook makes it easy for each of us to keep track of the class, yet access highlights and notes. Love it.

So much better on android

Frustrating. Not user friendly. Detailed features either don't work as they do on Droid or require 2-3 steps to get to. Changing from landscape to photo orientation freezes and changes text and in app screen size. So annoying. Why the basic functions from the original Nook app are absent I simply don't know? This is not an upgraded platform. Just convoluted. Worthless.

Windows 10

Basically incompatible with Windows 10. It seems everyone is more concerned about DRM than getting their apps usable. Calibre is far superior for e-book management but of course can't open DRM epubs. Barnes and Noble should put all their energy into working with Calibre to get a working app.

This fills a nook in my app collection

I like the synchronization among devices (I use it on laptop, Android tab and Android phone), ability to search for text, and the highlight/notes functions. It could be just a little more user friendly, or maybe I'm still learning, and too "male" to use the tutorials...

Great for personal and school use.

I get as many of my textbooks on here as I can since it makes it easy to search for specific terms/names and allows me to highlight section of the book. Additional bonus is that I can make notes anywhere I want within the books and some texts can be 'rented' instead of bought.

Nook for PC

Easy to use and read books on the PC. I also use Nook for my cell phone and my iPad. Highly recommended. Barnes and Nobel has not updated this app to work for Windows 10 and some books will not download after you purchase them.
