Love this! One improvement I'd like to see is the ability to widen just the space between columns, without changing the outside margins. Another (and perhaps more important) is the ability to swipe on the left side of the screen to turn the page, not just the right side. When I hold my tablet in my other hand. I'd also like the most-recent read widget to follow my span-over-2-screens setting on my phone. The main app window does this properly.

Almost unusable. Version 6.3.0.8 has a yellow highlight moving through the text. There is no way to turn this off. It is extremely distracting while trying to read. Also, you cannot turn pages. I have to click into the book to bring up share, brightness, text options to be able to turn the pages. The Nook app has been getting worse with each update.

To assist with this issue, it would be helpful to have a little bit more information. Can you send any screenshots related to the issue along with your device details at service@bn.com? Thanks.

Finally was able to install and it does work. However, the app starts itself when I turn on my android device (both tablet an phone with different versions of android). I am unable to use any app until I close the Nook app. Never had this problem before the May 2022 upgrade. I'm afraid I'll have to uninstall this app (Nook). It opens by itself and I can't use my phone for anything else until I close out this app. When I ask for help, I'm directed to the FAQ page which has nothing to solve it.
