  • Fix This Bug 1/5

    By LtMetz464
    I have to redownload this book every time I open it. I get an error message every time.
  • Travel Companion 5/5

    By ::Jb27::
    There is nothing worse for a reader than running out of books on a long vacation. Nook is an entire bookstore at your convenience. When I purchase a book, it downloads on my husband's Nook as well, and we can read it at the same time!
  • Love it but... 5/5

    By Luv2LuvEm
    My first eReader was a nook. Now I have an iPad with all the other reading apps, but I still only use nook. Idk I guess I just don't like change. So I love the nook app IS all I've known. The only thing that bugs me is that to purchase a book I have to leave the app and got to B&N which is the absolute slowest site EVER. If there was a way to buy a book straight from the app (like the sequel to a book I'm reading. Just one example) that would make life so much easier.
  • Great App! 5/5

    By Vkwolf
    My favorite reading app!
  • IOS 11 update Needed For Ipad App to Work 1/5

    By AZGolfGal
    Come on Barnes & Noble give us the support we need in order for the app to work. Last iOS version update was 2 years ago for IOS 9. With IOS 11 update my Nook app will not work and I cannot access all the books I have purchased. B&N get it together!!
  • I love my nook. But I have a suggestion 5/5

    By Hookd
    I have had several nooks. And my glow light is my favorite since it doesn't hurt my eyes as much as looking at my iPhone does. But using the app makes it one less thing to carry My suggestion is for me to be able to mark books as finished.
  • Book issues 1/5

    By Bamudpi
    I am an avid reader & normally love this app but recently every time I open the app to read I have to download my books all over again. Very annoying, especially when I am in an area w/o service & am stuck with no reading material since all the books in my library have mysteriously removed themselves. Please fix this issue so I can enjoy reading again!
  • App will not load since I updated my iPad. 1/5

    By Joyntech
    This app is not working on my latest iPad update. I have used Nook for 3 years. Now suddenly, the app will not load on my iPad. Is there a solution for this?
  • Quick, dependable, easy 5/5

    By Histgood
    Nook & App are very convenient. I have the app with me at all times. Ordering books is simple without waiting. Notification of new books is handy because I don't have to go out to shop. I can download my daily hometown newspaper-Ft Worth Star Telegram.
  • Simply lovely!!! 5/5

    By Poppins place
    Yeah!!!I love always having my books with me.
  • Nook 5/5

    By Sheba25
    Great application! Love that I can read all my books from Barnes and Noble on my iPad. That says it all. I couldn't live without my IPad and the Nook App.
  • What happened to my books? 1/5

    By Inked7
    Download today for iOS11 support BUT now all my books r gone! What gives? I want my books back immediately!
  • New Update 1/5

    By MadSci3nce
    I love my Nook and my Nook app and use it daily. However, I tried to open today and it wouldn't let me forcing an update. After the update now I have a black screen in the Nook app.
  • Why doesn't this wrap lines correctly? 1/5

    By dacelloman
    Hate this app vs Kindle app. My main gripe is that is wraps lines in the middle of words instead of complete words or at least hyphenating. Is there a fix for this?
  • Idk. 5/5

    By Gabs got Abs
  • Can’t buy books in app? 4/5

    By Bemorelikenotes!
    At first I couldn’t figure out how to get to the PRICE. After reading reviews I now understand. APPLE doesn’t let NOOK sell in-app-RIDICULOUS. I’m going to punish APPLE by never buying books from them. NOOK is not at fault, but I must delete a useless app-sorry Nook. To be fair, I’ll rate it 4.
  • Highlighting handles need fix, but colors are nice 3/5

    By Swienke
    I defy anyone to successfully select the highlighting handles on the first, or even the fifth, try. I have no difficulty doing this in other apps, or in using the drag highlighting employed in Nook's other incarnations. Apparently B&N's programmers have messed with the hit area and got it wrong. But I have always appreciated the Nook's color customization. Please, B&N, fix the highlighting handles.
  • Need more improvement 2/5

    By Sacramento7350
    I don't like the fact that I have to go through to buy books. Too much work. I will give this app five stars once this app allow me to buy a book within one click. Hurry!
  • Update app for ios 11!! 1/5

    By WookieeRunner
    Still can not open app to read books. App update is not recognized by apple. Still states must be updated. Please get this corrected regardless of which end is problem, BN or Apple.(10/6/2017) I would like to read my books again, please update asap Still no update! I want my books. (9/28/17)
  • Sideload errors in existing ebooks in library 3/5

    By Crochetowl
    Be forewarned about the latest upgrade. I just lost close to 200 ePubs due to sideload errors even though these successfully loaded in the previous upgrade. Can’t comment on anything else at this time on any of the new features. Using IOS11.
  • Loving it 5/5

    By ChelyShep
    Absolutely love my nook! So versatile!
  • Great app 4/5

    By bookgirl52589
    It's a great app. I wish the books would say new until I have read them though
  • Love my nook 5/5

    By Cjmhsssad
    I've had my nook for years. I found taking hard covers places difficult due to size and weight. I don't have a problem with the hyphenation or wrapping of text since I u sweats s that different font sizes will place differently in the viewing page. One suggestion to display by author is a good one since sometimes it alphabetizes by 'The'. For people who can't remember what they've read, they can try archiving books once finished. They are available to unarchive if they want. Keeps the volume down. The fact that I also have the app on my iPhone and tablet allows me to read anywhere. You can also archive a book from your phone or tablet. One suggestion I would offer is Xcode the reader to be able to group 'like' books together while still grouping by author, i.e. Mystery vs Horror vs Self Help vs Health, etc. I would recommend nook for everyone.
  • Love my Nook 5/5

    By VallhundRunner
    It's the only way to enjoy novels. I take it everywhere.
  • Version 4.8 is buggy 1/5

    By JBoney
    This version will not allow multiple profiles. If you share books with anyone, stick with previous app. I'm using it on an iPad so all of Apple's silliness may be affecting proper operation.
  • Love the app 5/5

    By Kkbury
    Only thing I wish is the ability to purchase from the app and that the app would recognize you already own a title
  • After upgrading to iOS11.1, all I can get on this app is the store 1/5

    By clmhOhio
    Where is my library?
  • Syncing from items in my first iPad 3/5

    By My3bassets
    Finding it difficult to download B&N books from my previous iPad. I know it was old but I thought they were still archived.
  • Purchasing new books issue 3/5

    By E3478
    I downloaded this app to my iPhone recently after using a Nook for many years. While I think my library transferred over, it took me way too long to figure out that you can't actually buy a new title through the app, and instead have to go through the B&N site. This step was not needed with the reader and seems unnecessarily annoying. The app give a small introduction on how to turn pages etc., but buying new titles isn't mentioned.
  • Love nook on Samsung device but HATE the apple version 4/5

    By Ananna mouse
    I'm sorry and this says more about apple products than anything else. Everything is very user friendly and harmonious with my samsung devices (note I said devices, as in more than one) but anything I try to do with my apple products is apparently protected by the CIA and NASA. At one point I was even questioning my own existence and security trying to log into my own account. Thinking to myself, "It's me right, that's my name and password." Then after a fingerprint, my password, a hair sample and my second born later, I still can't open the book I paid for (over 5 years ago, yes I'm a re-reader) and am trying to retrieve from the archive 30 minutes later. But if I log onto my phone or computer (not apple products) I can do so and then update my apple device to read my book.
  • Love Nook books 5/5

    By globarn
    I am retired and love to read. Nook gives me the opportunity to read whatever and whenever I want. I can read in bed so only the light from my nook is on or in the waiting room at the Dr. office. I am not very patient and need things to do to keep me busy.
  • Love my Nook! 5/5

    By sloanmarie
    It is so very easy to order and download Nook books to my iPad. I love to read and this is more convenient that carrying around a hardback book or paperback book.
  • Good Boos 5/5

    By Frank BiernacKi
    I have a lot of books on my IPad nook and I enjoy reading them in Series and ate at or so later reading them again.
  • Nook 2/5

    By B I N G O 3
    Often times I find myself reading a page and suddenly I'm back at the Library page. It does this for no reason, I try to go back and end up returning to the Library again and again. This does not happen daily but frequently enough to make me think I may want to try another reader.
  • My booked won’t download 2/5

    By Runner Girl39
    Since the newest update my books will not download to my phone. I’ve tried several different books and they all give the same “License verification failed” message. Please please fix this so I can read my Nook books on my phone!!
  • Best reads 5/5

    By TaylorMarsing
    I have loved my nook since it first came out. I bought one to share with my daughters. I was using it all the time as I could order books as soon as I finished another without a trip to the store. The next Christmas I bought 2 more for the girls. I got an iPad and gave my original one to my oldest daughter. We all have nook books
  • Love it! 5/5

    By JJPink1997
    Love it!
  • Excellent 5/5

    By JohnL2050
    My favorite App!
  • Love my nook😍 5/5

    By Cxxopi
    I love that I can read on my nook, my iPhone, and my iPad. Each device knows my bookmark.
  • Excellent Religious Source 5/5

    By Roni-loco
    Nook has been an excellent resource for mobilized religious reading materials for my Sons of Joshua Groups quest to read 12 books by the end of this year. So far so good no complaints from this sight. I'm looking forward to growing my library of Nook Books in the coming future.
  • Does not work at all. 1/5

    By Damannse
    After several years of using my iPad to read my nook books, the last upgrade simply does not work on my iPad. On my iPhone, yes. My iPad, no. When I go to download the book the circle on the icon completes right up to verifying the license. It then tells me that the license cannot be verified and quits. FIX IT NOW!
  • Smooth transition.... 5/5

    By Earth2lac
    Transitioning from the Samsung Nook tablet to the Nook app on an IPad was seamless. The only difference is that I have to log into Barnes and Noble to purchase new things..good news is that it keeps me from making those impulse purchases.
  • Ok 3/5

    By hdjgry
    It’s ok
  • Typos 4/5

    By Debbra57
    I love having a whole library in my hand but the one thing that really irritates me is the amount of typos in nook books and it's probably because of spell check or lack thereof. I have to try and decipher some of the sentences, just like txt messages, to understand what's being said. It seems to me that whoever is writing the nook versions of the books get in a hurry and don't proof read. It's not like back in the day of typewriters and meticulous proof reading of the book to ensure there are no errors. It's gotten way out of hand.
  • Can't buy anything 3/5

    By Kab2009
    Can only download free books and samples. Can't buy a single thing now!!!!
  • Love Nook App except for a few things... 4/5

    By LoveMyNookBook
    Love the Nook App except you should be able to purchase the book directly right from the app on your phone or iPad or tablet instead of having to go to the web or go to your nook device. Also, I would like to be able to have my shelves from my nook device sync with my nook app.
  • So easy 5/5

    By Relaxedretired.
    I owned one of the original Nooks. When I migrated to an Ipad I was so happy to see Nook as an app. Now I always have a library of with me.
  • Nook books 5/5

    By Mtdewgal
    Omg I can't say enough good things! I love my nook! Barnes and noble have always treated me well! I've really can't think of a problem I've had with them and I've been with them for at lease 5 years or more! Keep up the good work guys!
  • iPad experience is poor 2/5

    By KeepinDaFaith
    Cannot immediately purchase titles? Ridiculous. Only given the option to get the sample version and then have to wait for an email notification to go unlock/purchase the full version. That's not only a bad user experience, it's a horrible business model.
  • License verification error 2/5

    By Cathy Jean (cj)
    I purchased about 15 books from your website, 4 weeks ago - I have yet been able to download or read them. Every single one says license verification error. I've sent in feedback multiple times and no one has responded, and issue has not been fixed!! I love Barnes and Noble and spend a lot here but I would at least expect it resolved by now AND someone to get back to me on the error and how they are fixing it!!
