he'll yeah!

I would say I'm an extreme reader but I'm also insanely clumsy! I always manage to destroy the books I have with stains and rips before I even half way through. With this I can keep my books clean and just read it here on my tablet

over simplified under documented

I think the pre-app versions of the reader were better. There is no readily accessible help. The in-app controls are not explained so for me there is a lot of trail and error in using the app. I would like hover labels that tell what a control is when a cursor is over it.

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.

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...

While there is something to be said for holding actual pages in your hands, this is an excellent way to carry a library without the extra weight.

Good not great

The app crashes from time to time and books sometime "stack" on top of each other if they are by the same author making things harder to find. Some styles such as graphic novels seems not to be supported. Otherwise functional has nice features such as night reading mode.
