Terrible all-around. The glitches occur way too much and have been a problem for YEARS. It's simply not user-friendly either. Its layout is so messy and tiresome to navigate around. The only saving grace it had was the ability to purchase from it but now it doesn't even have that from the most recent update. Seriously that was the ONLY reason why I downloaded it but now? nope. Never using this again. Just get a kindle and save time and money.

So many improvements! The best of which, for me, is putting my current read and my library in different windows. FANTASTIC, especially on a 2-screen device. Some annoying bugs were also squashed. :) One improvement I'd like to see is the ability to widen just the space between columns, without changing the outside margins.

Doesn't sync reading position between web app and android app. This makes is more of a hassle than carrying around the physical book. Unfortunately my school is requiring me to read one of the books with this app. I have to remember which page I am on and navigate back to that page. This is harder than even not using a bookmark in a physical book because there is no way to quickly scan through something digital like there is with a physical book. Kindle is able to sync position, choose Kindle!

Sorry for the disappointment. Unfortunately, NOOK for Web does not sync up with the B&N NOOK for Android App. Highlighting, adding notes, Find in Book, and annotation features are not currently available on NOOK for Web. https://help.barnesandnoble.com/hc/en-us/articles/5582527139739-Using-NOOK-for-Web
