I will 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.

Windows 10 Tablet Workaround Works

Used to work in windows 8. Doesn't work properly in windows 10. The files don't work when you highlight or click on a link and the text cuts into the screen so you can't see all of it, or it doesn't align if you make the screen smaller. Update: what Brenda said about putting it in tablet mode and auto-hiding the taskbar, makes this app actually usable.

Close, but not quite ready...

Mostly good, like the appearance and good clean fonts; very readable; still doesn't support Win10 on my laptop [worked good initially, pages cut off @ side and bottom after a Win 10 update]; can't uninstall [to try to reinstall] [uninstall option shows up on right-click menu, doesn't actually do anything]; doesn't show up on installed programs/apps list [also stymies uninstall]; great start--would rate five stars if you can fix these without messing anything else up.

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.

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.

I am new to the tablet generation, and found that I can enjoy taking many books and magazines with me on my little device and read them on the go. Thanks for NOOK!

Easy to use

I love this app. It is easy to use and I don't need a lot of storage space. I can read books, newspapers, and magazines anywhere.

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

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
