Good App, could be better

It gives you easy access to all of your NOOK material, from books, magazines, newspapers, etc. It also synchronizes where you left off with your different devices. But the book reader could be much more functional. Highlighting is difficult, because you can't see very well where the highlighter is pointing. Changing highlight color is too complicated, which makes you highlight, then select the highlight again, tap change color, and finally select the color. Really? And finally, this is just aesthetic, but the pages don't curl like in the Nook HD+.

Win 10 update fail

I use NOOK exclusively for my textbooks. It's extremely convenient and usually quite a bit less expensive and cumbersome than a physical book. However, since the Windows 10 update, it's impossible to read a single entire page. The NOOK picture is just too large and there's absolutely no scrolling. It's ridiculous! They say they're "working on it," but what do I do in the meantime when I have tests to study for? I feel like they should've been better prepared and this was a total disappointment. It's the same across ALL of my devices so there's no working around it. Can't even get the app for my phone.... My only solution is to uninstall the update and reevaluate the NOOK app once they've caught up to where I need them to be.

Death comes e-calling

I am really enjoying the book a lot . I would read another book by this author. It is really enjoyable and a good book.

Nook App

Loving the nook app. I thought I would miss my nook more. When the kids are reading on the nook, I don't have to wait for them to go to bed to enjoy my books.

Tre is no way to give a negative star.

I had been nook user for seven years. over those years I bought 3 tablets (two nook colors- lost one in tornado, and one nook hd+); 391 books, 90+newspapers etc. I stopped a newspaper subscription on 8/03. By 8/07 they had taken another $20 from my acct. I called and was told that was for money owed from June. I offered to give them my reference number from my bank for that payment and was told their reference numbers were different from the banks and would prove nothing. I have proof they got paid! So I deleted my credit card from their web site- which leads issue #2! Did you know that you can't use a GIFT CARD or buy a FREE BOOK without a debit/credit card on file? So, you go to their website- not the app as it doesn't work- add a card, go to app, buy stuff. Return to website d delete card. Now I have a windows tablet, got the app. the words drop off loosing whole sentences. When I called for support they told to uninstall windows10. I refused.

Very handy to have several volumes of books on a handy tablet that can be tucked in my purse. Keeps your place. Easily can change font size, background for easy reading.

Beautiful app

It is simple, clean and has everything I need from an ebook reader app. Only thing that would make it better if it would sync my downloaded books with my other devices (e.g. Android phone).

Good reading app on Win 10

I like this version of the Nook app better than any one other than an actual Nook. Windows 10 helps a lot but the app itself is much improved lately. Better interface and access to the various settings. I've been pretty hard on Nooks and Nook apps in the past but I am really liking this version.

unusable on a tablet with 1280x800 resolution

so my original Nook finally gave up the ghost and I needed a replacement. After verifying that this application worked well on my desktop I went ahead and picked up a new HP stream 7 and Win10, unfortunately the resolution of the app is not adjustable to work with a resolution of 1280x800. In all text setting cases I LOSE at least a line of text PER PAGE, as in not just have to scroll to see them - I CANNOT see them. Its a bummer since it means my entire Nook collection is no longer accessible except via desktop. Since I don't have this issue with other Apps - the problem really does lie with Barnes and Noble. If this gets corrected I'll revise this review - until then I can't rate it better than a single star. the ReaderPro epub reader seems to work fine with my DRM free books so that will be my goto choice - buy the books directly from the publisher and use a reader that works.... for example BAEN.com has a great selection of science fiction and fantasy.
