Nook app 2/5
By Angry Cannibal
I find it awkward and hard to navigate. I have a nook and wanted a bigger screen. I don't see where I can buy books. I had to put them on a wish list and then buy from my actual nook or website. The search is awkward and clears your old searches.
Want to buy a book! 3/5
Why is it not blatantly obvious how to purchase a book after reading through the free sample? Losing sales over here...
Complete Failed Experience 1/5
This app could not be downloaded. It shows it's in the cloud, but cannot be downloaded. It doesn't get any dumber than this. Nice going Apple and Barnes.
Love it, love it, love it 5/5
Awesome to be able to read my books and magazines on my iPad. Much larger print available than my actual nook.
Love my Nook 5/5
I have enjoyed my Nook and have no serious problems
I absolutely LOVE this app! I love reading and this is a go to app when I don't have an actual book in my hands to read!
Can't purchase from app?!?!? 1/5
By Soldier4death Ruben
What in the world is this? You cannot purchase titles from the app anymore??? This is so dumb it's laughable. We took a step back two decades with this one. Hahahaha pos
A book lovers friend 5/5
I've used this app for 5+ years and I love it ! So much easier than lugging around all my books. For which I have MANY lol
Nook app on the iPad 5/5
I really enjoy this app. I've been using it for the past 3 years. It's great so easy to use. I won't buy a paper book again!
I love being able to read anywhere. Just wish that I could buy new books from the app.
Best reading app 5/5
I've had nook for over 10 yrs. never disappoints
Many books 4/5
Cool way to have many books on many subjects all close at hand at one time!!
Wonderful app 5/5
Love it. Esp on the iPad. Notes, highlights, etc. very welcome.
It's a free book, bite me. 1/5
By The Hawaiian Avenger
I have never been able to read more than a few pages on an e-reader but I thought I'd give the nook app a try because there are a few old free public domain books that I've been dying to read. I saw that one was available on the nook but when I try to download it I'm told I can't because it doesn't have my credit card info.
Horrible for iOS 1/5
The Nook app for iPad iOS is horrible. It isn't friendly to maneuver around in; it's very difficult to find things. It will not open my library or allow me to actually purchase books. It would have been nice to travel with only on device, but I'll stick to my boring and very reliable Nook with glow light.
My favorite way to read 5/5
By Carioca Jim
I have become so happy with my Nook that I now find it uncomfortable to read a real book. I especially like being able to read in the middle of the night without disturbing my wife.
I love Nook. It has great features that allow people with vision problems to continue their reading enjoyment. I really love the selection of free books. It's like having a library at my finger tips.
Love Nook 4/5
By Flamingo 1
I especially appreciate the built in dictionary that enables me to look up words I'm unfamiliar with, without really disturbing my reading. I began using a Nook, and now have my library in my Nook app on my iPad. I also have a Kindle app, but prefer the Nook app because I find it easier to manage. I like the ability to archive books I wish to keep and delete books I don't. I like having a page devoted solely to the unread books in my Que. The area in which I prefer the Kindle app over the Nook is the ability to choose my highlighting color. With Nook I just end up with a washed out orange.
No purchase in app, no purchase period 1/5
Seriously? Give me a fraking break. I'm running out of places to buy books at this point since obviously making things easy for the customer is a bad thing. Luckily I have an awesome independent bookstore, so while I'll be sad to have to give up on more e-books there *are* other options.
Love my Nook app 4/5
But would like to make my purchases right inside the app.
Better off reading physical books 1/5
The nook app will only reset your position in the book you are in, causing you to loose your place.
Love my nook! 5/5
By Jenn with the ruby red shoes
Love my nook! Easy to use and fun to shop online!
No improvement 1/5
There have been no improvements to what to me are major problems. Your search often fails to find my Nook books that I know are in my library. I want to be able to list my Nook books by, at least, author and/or title. Yes, I want to see ALL my Nook books in a list by author and, if I choose, by title. This is easily accomplished by Kindle, if you need to see it to understand what is wanted here. It annoys me for you to say I don't have a book and show me a sample to buy it when I've already bought it from you years ago.
Highlighting works only one word at a time. Noisome. 4/5
By roger log
I'd like to highlight whole sentences, even paragraphs, but that's not possible. One word at a time, only.
Eyes work 3/5
It displays books , changes pages but. The settings don't work. I've never been able to get it to shift to white text on black background for night reading. Very annoying. Kindle does this well !
Can't purchase in app, waste of time 1/5
I've got several hundred books on my nook app. I'm beyond annoyed by the new update that will not allow me to purchase from the "bookstore" tab. Why call it a "bookstore" when you took our ability to purchase on the app away?!?! I just hung up with a Nook app rep who had to put me on hold for 5 minutes to read about it. She then told me what I already knew, no more purchasing. Guess what? I won't waste any more of my money on my app or my Nook Simple unless you give that tiny option back. If I want to read a book, I want to read it right then. I don't want to go to your website and log in, find it, then have to go through purchasing it. All I had to do before was click a button here and there and be done with it. Please CHANGE IT BACK!!!!
My Shelves feature needs work 3/5
The usability of the app once a book is opened is great, but other features need work. While I'm relieved to see that my highlights sync from nook device to iPad, my shelves don't. Also, what is with the 100 book max on a shelf-- this doesn't occur on my nook device. I like to keep a record of the books I've read in a given year or through time or all the books that would be appropriate reads for or with my kids (ages 7 & 4) under my profile-- pick any of these scenarios and it's over 100 titles. And the shelves don't reflect an accurate title count, just a seemingly random grouping of some single titles, some titles by author, and I'm not sure what the other algorithm might be. Definite dissatisfiers with this feature.
I love my nook 5/5
I love that I can switch back and forth between my nook and my iPhone app.
It's good but there are a few tweaks I would like 4/5
By Murica time
I cannot fathom why it is impossible to directly buy a book in the application. I would like to see that addition. Also I feel that the books should be put into folders with other books of the same series.
Great app 5/5
By Charlie Acer
It works just like in my nook tablet
Love it 5/5
Le recomiendo este app a toda persona que ame leer.
Great Reading App but.. 3/5
Love this reading app, I can go from my phone, to my nook, to my iPad with ease. Only 2 downfalls about the nook app is that you can no longer purchase books from the app.. only the website. Which I find to be very inconvenient. Now you can only get samples on the app.
Also, find that I can no longer "lend" any book I own, it's very few titles that will allow you to do this now... WHY?! I bought the book. If someone else has the app or a nook they should be able to borrow books when they want from someone else who has purchased the title already.
Good app, easy to use 4/5
Sometimes there are a few formatting oddities or missing text in the ebooks themselves, usually solvable by changing font size or page orientation.
Nota bad selection ofbooks with reasonable prices.
Love my nook! 5/5
By USMC Brat
Like some other reviewers, I've had my nook for quite some time. Since I read quite a bit, the nook has been a welcome alternative. I've worked in retail & college bookstores for over 30 years, and have quite a collection of hardcover books. Moving them has gotten tiresome, so I've donated and passed them on to family. The nook has made it easier to buy when I want, and what I want. I can shop the nook book store and can always find something to read. I still buy hard copies if it's history or a biography. I have the nook e-reader, and the nook app on my I Pad & I phone. When I travel, I don't have to take 2 or 3 devices with me. I admit that I was hesitant when it first launched, but I'm a firm believer that whatever format gets someone to read, then I'm all for it.
I have not had any of the issues that others have had. The option to sort by author, title, or recent makes it very easy to find what I want. Since I read constantly, sorting by recent works best for me. I would recommend the nook to anyone that asks.
Still Excellent 5/5
By Edna Millay
I first used Nook on a Nook device but now use it on an iPad. I really like that it loads so much faster than the Kindle app and interacts with the iPad OS better.
I especially like how it works on its darkest setting, for reading in the dark without bothering my husband, asleep next to me. No other reading app does this as well.
I also like the Nook fonts better than the other reading apps. And Nook is syncing nicely between iPad and iPhone.
Kindle has now got a better underline function and its flash cards are nice, but for basic reading, I much prefer Nook.
Favorite App 5/5
By Suzanne key
I absolutely love this app ! I am an avid reader and I love the fact that I can order a new book and be reading it in a matter of minutes !
Overall a really good app, but needs a few tweaks 5/5
Easy to use, convenient, but a few improvements would help. Indexed sorting would be a blessing. Having to scroll through the entire alphabet to find the correct author is cumbersome. Grouping seems to be hit or miss. Most times it keeps series together, but once in a while a title is shunted off by itself. Finally, the ability to purchase through the app regardless of the devise would be great. I used my Nook color exclusively and loved it, until I got my iPad. As an Apple user purchasing a device with an Android OS to upgrade my Nook is a waste, and carrying both the iPad and the Nook is silly. Needing a Nook to purchase is archaic. Otherwise this is a great app, and my go to when I'm not reading paper books, which are still my favorite way to read.
I love this app! 5/5
My favorite reads are on this app. I wouldn't have it any other way.
Not sure why but I can't purchase books through the app, I always have to sign in through the internet browser and purchase, then can go to app immediately to read the book. Other then that it's a perfect app
Good with room for improvement 3/5
Good but I have to download the current book I'm reading often!
Great app overall 4/5
I have been reading nook books since the nook color, so for quite some time. Now I usually just use the app on my iPhone cause I always have my phone with me anyway. It's easy to use and I love having all my books at my fingertips.
I have had a problem happen to me two times now though in the last couple weeks; I open the book I was currently reading and I'm back at the first page looking at the cover. One of the reasons I LOVE e-books is because it auto saves my spot and I've never before had to worry about a bookmark falling out and losing my place. Now I have to worry about my app doing it for me. If it was just once whatever, but it's been 3 times now in the last month alone that I've noticed. It isn't a huge issue if it's a book I was just recently reading but I read multiple books at once and I don't want to open up a book I haven't read in a month or so only to have to try and remember where I last left off. This error takes away the biggest perk I love from ebooks.
Not bad but it has quirks 3/5
I love Barnes and Noble. I choose to support them but try and solve some of issues like clunky response when closing a magazine or book. I cannot always get the symbol up to use. I like variety of books just rarely price and inability to organize a collection.
Shame on you B & N 2/5
I've been forced into using my iPad to read my books. My Nook refuses to take a charge and I'm struggling along with about 46% remaining. The really bad deal is B & N won't let me buy books with my iPad. I guess when my Nook runs out of juice I'll just Kindle it. FYI, I have over 300 books archived so I've most assuredly used my Nook.
It's very convenient! 4/5
By Allie Hall
The only thing I don't like is that I can't purchase books on my phone.
Otherwise it's cool.
Good, indispensable app 4/5
Only a note for improvement: when highlighting a phrase about 4/5th of the way down the page on my iPod touch, can only do a single word. If try to highlight multiple words, either it won't let you or the highlight option disappears. Otherwise, the Nook app is my sanity saver!
Update killed it 3/5
After the last update, the Nook app no longer works on my iPad2 which is current. Launch the app, it displays Nook for a few seconds and then reverts to where I was when it was launched. Have rebooted device, relaunched the app and it still does not work. Hope someone from B&N sees this.
Good app 5/5
I've had Nook for quite a few years, first with the Nook tablet and now as an app. I like it. One recent problem that may be from a recent update is that out of the blue, you'll be taken to a page that has (only) all the chapters listed. If you don't know what page you were on, it can be a few frustrating minutes of guesstimatiion lol! I guess I'm tapping something that causes this problem, but I haven't figured out what it is yet. But that's my only complaint. I recommend it. 👍👍
Removing titles from device 2/5
Love the feel of the app while reading, but it constantly removes items to the cloud and I have to re download them on a regular basis.
Still my favorite 4/5
I have most of the reading formats in my phone, tablet or desktop. They all have their plus/minus. I'd like a better search feature too. I'd like nook to tell me when the next in a series or favorite author is available.
