Good App For Reading, But Unexpectedly Used 0.5 GB Data The app works nicely for reading books and other content. I noticed my data usage was much higher than expected last month, though, and found the culprit to be the Nook app - it had somehow needed to download 500+ MB of data in the background (i.e. I did not direct it to download anything). A bit of background data usage is to be expected, but not this much. The app is now restricted to wifi only - you may wish to do the same.
A Good eReader app with versatility. First Kindle. Now nook. You can no longer export books purchased from nook to read on other devices unless you have the nook app installed on that device. Pardon me, but if I pay for something, it should be mine to use it in any (legal) way I wish. Of course, I could go through the illegal process of removing DRM but I'm not willing to go that far when there are other vendors.
Could be so much better It's so difficult to find and download books from my library that aren't the most recent 30. I know it is possible to find these titles but they bury it in menus in a place you wouldn't think to look and then when you download them, it bumps other titles to this no man's land. I liked it better before the update when the thumbnails for everything was under the library heading and you could download and read a few at a time but still have access to all titles.
well needed upgrade facelift?!?? I somehow lost all my books on my phone. All the other devices are fine. I don't know how to fix this. I use a password protected going program its in all other devices. It's making me nutty. NOW MY BOOKS ARE GONE ON ON THIS DEVICE ALSO, NOW!!! I TOOK AWAY TWO STARS, I WILL RETURN THEM WHEN YOU MAKE IT CLEAR HOW WE MIGHT DO THIS AND HOW TO CLEARLY FIX IT. CURRENTLY THERE SEEMS TO BE NO WAY TO GET THE BOOKS I OWN BACK.
Used to be better :( I still use this app a lot and I like it but they make it hard to discover something new that isn't a book they are obviously pushing on you. Plus so many times they say it's free, or under 2.99 and it's not. But alas, I'm invested with 700 and something books in my library. Well played B&N, well played.
Long term uset Bought the first gen Nook, currently have a Nook HD+. I use the Android app frequently. Early versions had a little problem with screen freezing, but that is long gone. Current version is quick and smooth. Highly recommended. ADDENDUM: Dec 2016 - still using the Nook HD+ as well as the Android app on my tablet & phone. Smooth operation , syncs most recent page across multiple devices. If there is an improvement they might make, I don't know what it might be. Highly recommended!!
