Can't Purchase within the app 2/5
I am very frustrated with this app. I have had my account for years, and I stopped using it for a while. I just downloaded the newest version of the nook app, and I cannot purchase books. Or, if I can it is very difficult to find out how.
The Best! 5/5
Works great and sincs on all my devices.
I have used all the book reader apps, and actually own a Kindle device. I wish I had purchased the Nook. I will continue using the Nook app because it is better than any of the others. This app allows you to really organize your books and documents. I haven't had any issues with crashing or loss of content. I totally recommend this app.
LOVE MY NOOK APP! 5/5
Love my Nook Color - was so excited to get the Nook app when I bought my iPad mini. Disappointed that often when I go back and forth between Nook and iPad and phone, it doesn't always sync to my last reading position! I agree with other comments about my disappointment that I can look at the B&N bookstore but not make purchases. But I can go to B&N on web and make purchase so at least I can accomplish it even though it is cumbersome!
Absolutely outstanding 5/5
It's a lovely App, and so very happy that I have this. I'm losing vision and it's becoming more and more difficult to read especially with the smaller print. With this App I have the flexibility to enlarge the font to the size that I need. I love the smell, and the feeling of holding a book, but sometimes you have to change, and look for the next best thing. Thank you Barnes & Nobel for this beautiful App. Kato
The app 5/5
By The Animefan40
The nook app is cool and I like it how it seems up with the last page on the HD
Excellent Reader! 4/5
The Nook reader is an excellent application, however three needed improvements include:
1. Better ability to file, store, archive books.
2. Illustrations, maps, and diagrams are often jumbled up or too small to read. This is very problematic when reading history or science books.
3. It should be easier to find and go directly to pictures, illustrations, maps, and diagrams.
5 stars if... 4/5
I agree with Morgan737.....
Mostly good 3/5
But why can't we buy books from the app like iBooks?
Crazy Nook Lover 5/5
By Artemis_d 24
Although I still buy hard cover books I love the Nook App. I bought a Nook tablet when they first came out however due to chronic illness it became difficult to hold for long periods of time. Because of the Nook App, I can read on my phone and enjoy all my books at the touch of a finger. I read a lot of book series and find the app to be helpful way to sort and manage my reading. Also much less expensive option with ebook titles. While updates have been made it still needs work transitioning from app to Barnes and Noble online.
very competent 5/5
the new version is more responsive. works well for the reader.
I love having it on my phone so I can read while waiting for appointments and at leisure
Love it!! 5/5
Favorite app!! Love it!
I am very happy with the nook..it's the greatest way to read...I must say Its truly a great way to relax without turning pages...just keep up the good work...thank you...it's just perfect....
Re: old nook reading devices 4/5
Try 'unregistering' and 'registering' your old device. Might work just like mine. Aside from this issue Nook is a good if not a better reading app.
Great app, but wish you could shop from it 5/5
Absolutely love having access to my Nook library, and this app works well with the iPad. I wish that you could shop from it directly rather than going through the B&N website, but I understand that's an Apple thing. Regardless, the app is great and I'd be lost without it!
App won't load 1/5
Every time I open the app a screen comes up and says loading. Nothing ever loads, therefore I cannot use the app and read the books that I paid for. Once this is fixed I will change my review.
By Rhonda M Melton
Absolutely LOVE this app! Got plenty of books to read! Most current books are the Maurice Druon: The Iron King series!
Love this app! 5/5
This just like having a small nook with me at all time.
Love it needs tweaks 4/5
Love having the app because of the convenience of not having to have the actual nook tablet. I wish you could purchase from the bookstore while in the app. And the organization could use a little work as far as grouping entire series together, I get one or two random books from a series that do not go under the same group.
Great Reading App! 5/5
I have the Nook App downloaded on my iPad. I like it better than the Kindle App. When I try to buy books on Amazon using my iPad I always get an error that says my device does not support kindle books. No such problem with Nook. I also love the Nook features like nighttime reading light and adjustable font sizes.
I love to read! 5/5

I love my NOOK!
What It Does It Does Well 4/5
While I'd love to be able to make purchases in the app, without having to leave it to go the BN website, as a reader it functions well.
A readers dream! 5/5
It's a readers dream to be able to take your library with you were ever you go! I especially like the mail feature that alerts me to releases by my favorite authors.
Favorite thing!! 5/5
I never never thought I would love e-books. Give me old paper and pages to turn. I was wrong! I tried my first nook at the store, and thought, why not? I have since purchased 4 for my kids, and one for my 85 year old mother! Her vision is not too good, and she loved her big print books. Now she doesn't have to hold a twice as big book! She loves her nook too!
Nook is super easy to use, sometimes too easy! I even go to he store, find new books there, and buy them on he nook. I truly love Barnes and Noble..great addition to my life!
The bookmarking part... 3/5
I love all the books I can access and everything. I just have a problem with the fact that the bookmarking is still as fidgety as it was when the app first came out. It takes me SO LONG to highlight something that takes iBooks, Kindle and other apps like one second, maybe. It's frustrating.
Great App 5/5
By Rhapsody Blue
I have an older version Nook and it's great, have no problem downloading or purchasing books. I also have the app on my iPad, which I use more than the nook for reading books and making purchases. I choose Nook over Kindle.
is this 2007? 1/5
Please bring nook and the BN website into 2017. Examples:
BN: Don't make me give you my credit card number when I use a gift card.
Nook: Offer scrolling view.
I'll stick with iBooks.
By DEFend my Coffee cup
There's room for improvement...... customizable menus
I feel it should be rated 21 and older, not 18. It had a good story line and very descriptive, though I feel the xxx could be cut back just a tad.
All of the functions of the nook are not available. Can't buy books
Love the nook app. I have it on my phone and iPad.
Doesn't sync well across devices.
Great to go books.
LOVE my Nook App! 5/5
I've been using theNook app for iPad for a few years now, and I absolutely love it! BN continues to update the app with new features and bug fixes. The 'Shelf' feature is a great way to create folders and organize my books by genre, author, etc. I've purchased over 300 books and often like to go back and re-read. Even though you can only browse within the app, the wishlist features carries over to the website. You can thank Apple for that.
Nook app 5/5
I love my nook app! I read on my iPhone and my iPad. I read whenever I can sneak time to " go away"for awhile!
The worst app ever for ipad 1/5
Nook is so slow and buggy as to be unusable on my ipad. I'm disappointed in all things Nook and B&N. You can't download your own books anymore. It's like a library that you have to pay for and that crashes and won't let you have access to your supposed books. Poo poo all around for THE VERY WORST customer service of all time
I love this app. My original Barnes and Noble nook is now obsolete. This app is wonderful as I have all of my nook books available on my iPad.
Makes me very happy 5/5
I find the Nook app easy to use. I love the search function within a book because, when I'm reading, if I want to check on something that I read earlier (a clue, a name, etc), I have an easy way to find it. Certain books I like to highlight words or phrases, and I can do that with Nook. ALSO I like that I can have different book shelves.
Love to read! 4/5
The nook app is great to have on different devices so you can still read your favorite books even when you don't have your nook tablet with you!
By recycled 2
It keeps getting worse! They obviously cannot or do not want to fix it, so now I will download a Kindle app and see if that is better
Where is the integrity of this once finest app going!? Every time they update, everything has to be reinstalled. Very unstable. Perhaps it relates to the uncertain economic future of BN, and divesting itself of Nook. Which makes me uncertain that I should buy more Nook books, if I have to reload one several times to read it?
I hope they will concentrate upon the integrity of the operation of the Nook app. Those who can be responsible for little things can be responsible for greater things.
Great App 5/5
I've been using this app for years. Very reliable, easy to use, and lots of bargains, even free downloads. Love it!
Very nice. 4/5
Only thing I would like is having page numbers or chapters on the page.
Great feature 5/5
Love the highlight, note, and dictionary
Bookstore section disappointing 1/5
I was so excited with the latest update to see the bookstore section within the iOS app, but you cannot make purchases from the bookstore. You still have to use the internet to purchase and then sync your library for the download of the ebook.
Love the idea, still needs some work 3/5
I love reading books electronically. Having unlimited material to read at your fingertips cannot be beat. My only reason for continuing to buy paperbacks periodically was for the first and last 10,000 feet of altitude on a flight but that is no longer an issue.
The syncing feature is not always up to task. I have been asked to jump to another page (preceding the one I'm on) and it is not impossible to accidentally agree. Other times it just doesn't process my reading on another device and I have to stumble my way through. I've lost my page this way and other ways and I don't see a "furthest read page" option.
Of late, the purchases I have made at the Barnes and Noble website sometimes experience a frustrating delay. I purchased a book 11 hours ago and despite a phone restart and multiple "update" swipes in the app do not see it.
Aside from that and the fact that's Barnes and Noble discounts and sales never seem to apply to their nooks, I am a happy customer. When comparing to other sites, the prices are typically the same or not cheaper with Barnes and Noble.
I also haven't gotten the in app bookstore to work. There doesn't appear to be a place to put in your payment information and I didn't see an enable option on my phone or through the website.
Great app 4/5
Love this app. It's great for continuing your book when u are on the go or end up waiting unexpectedly
Nook app 5/5
App is pretty good. Reading is my favorite pastime. I like to visualize on my own. Not what a tv producer thinks! Thx for format.
My Night Glow Nook!! 5/5
Having A Nook is Wonderful, I Love my Night Glow Nook! I have had it for Three Years!! Also, I like having my Nook on my iPhone!!!
Great app 5/5
I have used other e-readers but nook is the best. B&N has endless choices to purchase and many free books. I've been a nook reader for 5 years and love it.
