Good app 4/5
I enjoy using the Nook app, it's had some recent most needed updates to their apps recently that will help them compete with their competition. Nook app is a slower reacting app versus kindle or IBooks which is something they need to improve upon.
I forgot why I deleted this... 1/5

... then I tried to get back on it again. No luck whatsoever... security question wrong locked out on and on. Is this really Fort Knox???? I've never persevered long enough to get past all the security to actually GET a book to read. Meanwhile, Amazon and the Kindle ap are wracking up my dollars....
Easy to use, love Nook! 5/5
I love my Nook app. My Nook reader was about to die, and having the app saved me from having to purchase ANOTHER device, and I still get to share my library with my family - score! I think the navigation and library is easy to use. The only small downside is that I can't buy books from B&N directly from the app. If it had that capability, it would be even better - still worthy of 5 stars for me even though I have to go to their website. Highly recommend the Nook App!

Great way to read while traveling
Very convenient. Only issue is not being able to use in the sun like the real Nook.
Love but... 3/5
I don't like the fact that when one of my favorite books/series of mine becomes a show or movie the covers get changed. It feels like a violation to look into your library and see books that you bought ages ago with new covers, not the way I purchased them. I enjoy the original artwork of my books and don't want to see the actors playing them in a show or movie on the cover. Most of my books I have read before they get on screen. Seeing my covers change makes me feel like I jumped on the bandwagon. I understand their may be some people who enjoy the new covers, I suggest giving us the option to go back and forth. Those of us who prefer the original covers can have them and those who want the new ones can have them. I love nook! I cant imagine going back to real books...and I used to be so against e-readers....but this one feature really does upset me and makes me consider going back to the old way. At least when I purchase a real book they don't change. The way I buy it is the way it stays. Please please please work on this. I would love to have the option of going back to my original covers :)
I love my Nook 4/5
Love Nook, but at times highlighting is "sticky" and doesn't always go where I want it to. I wish pictures could be enlarged, too. Overall the reading is easy and I love it
Love this app!! 5/5
I've gotten to the point where I don't even know where my nook is at because I only use my phone to read!
Great way to read 4/5
Excellent reading platform with decent options. Recent changes make it harder to figure out what you have on device vs. cloud.
While the app is great on my iPad it keeps crashes on my iPhone. I can't even open the app on my iPhone. App needs updating to fix the crash on iPhone 6!
Love 2 Read Nook 5/5
I purchased the original Nook reader, and have a huge library in/on Nook and Kindle. My preference is Nook reading. The original Nook is still in use, as I passed it on to a friend who enjoys reading. It was easy to clear my information and establish my Nook account on my iPad. I love that the Nook books I've purchased have continued to transcend changes in personal choice. I've used Nook platforms on my PC, Laptop, Android phone, iPhone, iPad2, and now iPad4 mini. I like that I am now able to read in the Nook app, anywhere, and with any device. The cool part is closing the app on my phone, and being able to open the book to the same updated reading position, on another device. Downloading has become much quicker, and takes very little time. Buying books is quick and my latest purchases typically are in my library within minutes, often immediately. I love having suggestions, and the availability of serial reads, and free book availability.
Can't live without it! 5/5
Love that I can read my nook books anywhere I want using this app!
Not bad, actually VERY GOOD 5/5
It is better than it was (see my previous review below). There are still improvements that would make it simpler for those who are not technically inclined e.g. my mom :), therefore making life a little less trying.
Previous Review: Not a bad job. I am coming from a nook HD plus. And there are a few small improvements very small I think could be made. Mostly I am having an OCD moment and obviously I do not like unexpected changes in my world, so these are very minor changes. So all in all I really like this app.
Good but could be improved 4/5
By Lunchtime reader
It is a good app, but wish I could order a new book directly from it instead of going to B & N website.
I've really enjoyed the 'Readouts', but almost every day when I start to read the next chapters, I have to restart my iPad to get the new chapters. I have a fairly new iPad and am pretty sure that's not the issue.
Fabulous product. I've enjoyed Nook for years, in fact I read all of my books on it. 5/5
Great App 5/5
Easy to Use
Pages turn SO slowly 3/5
I wish they had a feature to show unshelved books. It would make it so much easier to organize. It would also be nice if the page numbers made it easier to find a spot. I realize that depending upon the size of your text, page numbers will vary, but maybe page 97a, 97b, etc. You think you are only a couple of page flips from where you want to be, and it seems like you end up having to flip forever to get there. Also the pages turn so very slowly. It's not noticeable so much when you are merely turning one, but if you are having to reposition and don't know the page you want to go to or looking back for some reason, it's very frustrating to have the pages turn so slowly.
Wish I could purchase through Apple app 3/5
I've been a Nook reader for seven years. Love the ease of it buying and reading on my phone or tablet. Recently switched to Apple phone and I can no longer buy the books through the app. I hate that!! I don't want to get on the computer every time I want to get a book. Usually I buy when I'm traveling or finish a book and want the next one in a series or by an author. It's very inconvenient now.
Works fine. 5/5

Figure out the difference between archive and move to the cloud and you're all set.
Nook Lover 5/5
I love to read on my Nook tablet but I don't carry it around with me all the time, but I do carry my iPhone almost all the time. I love the Nook app! Now I can read my book just about anywhere or at anytime. One of the things I like with the app is that it will pickup on the page I was on when I was reading on my Nook tablet earlier....no searching or trying to remember where you left off previously. There's always room for improvements but overall I'm very satisfied with the Nook app.
Cross-device syncing doesn't work 3/5
The app is nice in isolation. However, I use the Nook reader as well as and the reading location, bookmarks, etc. are not syncing. I suspect that the problem is on the Apple side since I have confirmed that the Nook information is being saved on the B&N site.
I love the nook app. I've got a Nook at home, but can't always carry it around with me. So having the app is the next best thing.
Where's the MacBook version? 4/5
The iPad version isn't bad, but it has room for improvement - the sorting issues other people have covered. I'd really like to see a MacBook version, where I can keep my full Nook library, so I only have to carry the books I'm currently reading in my iPad, at least until Apple decides to add a USB port and thumb drive support.
I really enjoy this new program on my iPad.
I have been using nook books for a long time. There is nothing better!
Love it 5/5
I enjoy nook. I am frustrated because I am unable to review the books I am asked to review. It keeps Rene ting me.
Pretty good still needs work 2/5
My wife and I share an B & N. Account with over 300 books it's hard to remember which ones you have read, wish there was a way to mark a book as read. I can't archive a book because it will affect the library on my wife's device also, and she might.not have read it yet.tried using book shelves several.times too time consuming.and end result was very frustrating. I like using Barns and Noble just wish I could download their books to a different app.
Needs work 4/5
Agree with prior comments. Need more options to sort books. Be nice to be able to grab and drop. Also, if could put all books by same author in a stack...does this for some automatically, not all. Annoying that you can't purchase from the app.
Love it 5/5
Easy to use. Great for iPhone and iPad
Great reader app but... 4/5
The Nook app is a great to read but I wish there were different ways to organize my collection.
EXCELLENT APP!!!! 5/5
By L&J, KIRKWOOD
Love this app for sure. Reading is one of my favorite hobbies, and this app gives me anything I want to read. Good job. Keep going. JH - SAINT LOUIS, MO
Needs work 2/5
Nook's falls short of Kindle for me, and I am already not a big fan of Kindle.
Only a single highlight color? University students reading textbooks need far more than a single color for highlights. No underline functionality, and poor notes abilities make it unusable for anything but buying B&N books for basic reading.
Good app but cross-compatibility is an issue 4/5
I would prefer to be able to import my books from the great Barnes and Nobles people into my iBooks so that i have one spot for all, but the app is good otherwise.
4 Years and Loving Nook Reader 5/5
It's easy to change the text size, the brightness, and the font. I can retrieve and store all of my books at will, and this works for me. I love it!
Love my nook love that I can read on all my devices!
Just a couple of tweaks and it would be great reader!!! 5/5
First, it's really hard to figure out how to put books on a shelf, create a shelf and organize shelves. Get these bugs worked out and the Nook reader would be phenomenal!!!!
Nook Review 5/5
I love my Nook and now I have a IPad mini with all my Nook books on it. I love to read. Thanks For making such an awesome product.
I LOVE IT!!!!!! 5/5
I Love My Nook and especially sine I can get the Nook app on my iPad. I love being able to have my books with me wherever I go. Blessings!!!!!!
All the flaws have been resolved, it's as good as anything Apple puts out 5/5
By Shayne Mason Vincent
Thank you for finally including sharing! Every box has been ticket, and now I can stick with Barnes & Noble's permanently.
Love My Nook!!! 5/5
I take my Nook everywhere with me. Never without something to read!
Good but needs work 3/5
While the Nook app is a good reader, there a few improvements that need to happen before I can give it a better rating. First off, you can sort your books by most recent, title and author. However, once you have selected a sort say author, for instance, you just get all your books in alphabetical order by author. You then have to page through all the letters until you get to the area you want. Would be nice to see an alphabet at the top where once you have sorted your books you could then jump straight to the area you want. This might not seem like a big deal when you only have a couple books in your library, but once you get over 100 it is very time consuming to find an author at the end of the alphabet.
I also wish there was a way to group books in a "folder" or "collection". I have 15+ books I need to read for a class. Would be nice if I could group them all together under a name like Lit 220, etc.
As the app works currently, it is very tedious and time consuming when searching for a certain book.
Great app 5/5
Easy to use, saves the page where you left off no matter which devices you pick it up on next!
Nook ap 2/5
Not particularly intuitive, search is less than optimum. I like Nook books but have difficulty finding books in a series, for example. Would it not make sense to list these in some rational order with indication of which is book 1, 2,etc?
Perhaps the people writing the app don't read???
Search finds only some of series books when sorting by author.
Prob. will switch to other apps and devices when time to upgrade.
In every nook and cranny 5/5
LOVE that I can access Nook on all my devices!
I enjoy the app. But... 4/5
I Wish it would still put newly added books at the front when you have it in "current" order rather than the most current ones I've read. I know what I just read! I want to know what is new to read now!!
Love my Nook, thanks B&N. 5/5
Inevitably, there is room for improvement; but being able to read virtually anywhere, anytime, on multiple platforms is a great convenience. Never miss an opportunity to read.
Nook App for IPhone 3/5
Love having the Nook reading app but it really need an overhaul with more features.
Love love love this app!
