  • Not impressed.. 1/5

    By HarryPotter Kitten🐱⚡️
    Can't read past page 17 in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. 😰😨👎🏻💩 There's not even an explanation to WHY I can't exactly DO that.
  • I don’t like it. 1/5

    By Israel is BAE!❤️😘
    I can only sample the books
  • Terrible 1/5

    By wassup3
    Getting customer support is like pulling teeth, and the settings portion is basically a run around. Waste of money and time. Will not be buying another book through them again
  • Always 5/5

    By Amomma4now
    I have always used Nook as my reading App. For the last 6 years I have used it and it is easy to navigate through. I enjoy it and I never have had any problems with it
  • Very angry with changes 1/5

    By mamabear2523
    I have been using the Nook app for years and have literally thousands of books. I just recently got the new update when upgrading my android phone for an iPhone and am extremely disappointed that suddenly I can no longer purchase books through the app? Seriously?! This is quite infuriating and will force me to go to the competition, amazon kindle. I suggest the app go back to allowing digital purchases I see a serious decline in books purchased if it stays this way.
  • The Pleasure of Having a Nook! 5/5

    By Maryfrad
    My Nook has been such a tremendous pleasure in my life! I used to pack at least a half a dozen books with me on a trip or a vacation. Now l pack my Nook!

    By Kennedy695
    This app is phenomenal. to those of you complaining you can’t buy books in app, APPLE TAKES 30% OF IN APP PURCHASES ROBBING BARNES AND NOBLE OF REVENUE, which is why they force you to buy books outside the app, because greedy apple considers a book purchase an in app purchase and takes 30% of the revenue. The only missing feature is word translation that is present in the kindle, where you can tap a word and have it spoken. Everything else about this app is great!
  • Needs work 2/5

    By CharlieGS
    I find the search capabilities to be very limited. Doesn’t find the exact search. Gives responses that are only a portion of the actual request. Also, app makes it hard to find obvious tools like sync. Needs lots of work.
  • App updates delete my contents... 1/5

    By DGinNH
    ...forcing me to have to re-download hundreds of books each time. Why don’t you have your app developers reach out to those who do Kindle, Kobo, and iBook, as not one of them seems to have this problem?
  • Best of the Best 5/5

    By b1faithful
    That’s right. The best of the best of all of the e-reader apps I have tried. Functionally very reader friendly. Enough that an old guy like me can figure it all out and have no problems with all of the features. Better than real paper books even due to an eye problem I have. The Nook app on the iphone is great!
  • Cannot download new Nook books in iOS 11.3 1/5

    By travelingargentine
    Was really looking forward to reading my five new Nook books on my iPod Touch Gen 6 (just updated to iOS 11.3). However, the loading/syncing progress icon just spins forever with no books downloaded (tried many times in the past day and a half). I am properly signed in. Downloaded successfully on my Window 10 Pro app, which is just a backup; my iPod Touch is the primary Nook reader app. Please fix!
  • Nook App 5/5

    By terihogan
    I love having my books available on my phone! I also like the monthly serial reads that are available for free. I have found many great authors that way
  • I like Nook 5/5

    By PTP70
    I been using the app maybe two years now, on my iPhone and iPad. I like it and Barnes and Noble is great library of the lots of books. Plus other items of interest, I am happy with them so give it a try, thank you.
  • Love the app but with one caveat 5/5

    By Roebling Grid
    I’ve been a Nook customer for about nine years, first with the original Nook reader, then a Nook Simple Touch, and now as an app on my iPhone. I simply love it in all of its forms. The only complaint I have is with the latest update on my iPhone. In previous versions the capability existed to look up a definition for any word you wanted, not just one highlighted from the text you were reading. You simply highlighted a random word and then changed the it in the definition to whatever you wanted. That feature seems to have disappeared. You can still look up a word from the text but you can no longer change it to find the definition of another word. This was one of the features I enjoyed the most and would really like to have returned in a (hopefully quickly developed) future update.
  • Decent 3/5

    By Wolf1998
    I would give 5 stars if my app didn’t crash and freeze daily. Also not all books are available on the nook which is a pain. I switch between nook and kindle constantly due to unavailability of books
  • Font size 3/5

    By FarkelOrtler
    For those who have visual disabilities, myself included, the print size is not nearly large enough. Kindle gives me much better options for size and font.
  • Nobody can help me fix this error 1/5

    By ladydemando
    Whenever I try to report series grouping issues through the Settings portion of the app, I get an error message saying this device is not configured to send email. However, if I try and do it on my iPad it works just fine. But iPad syncing an iPhone syncing don’t work the same way, so any series grouping errors and I report on my iPad I also have to report on my iPhone to get fixed. Which is the nuisance.
  • Updated Now Dictionary Doesn’t Work! 3/5

    By Butterfly31119
    Just updated the app now the dictionary doesn’t work at all! Please Fix!!!
  • Good app, but not as many choices as Kindle. 4/5

    By TrojanSkyCop1
    Good app, especially convenient for traveling, but not as many book title choices as Kindle, nor as many convenient features (such as ability to highlight and copy & paste passages).
  • Normally so good... 3/5

    By RosalineJoyce
    Until this recent upgrade, I have had no issues with the app. Now, I can’t even open the wretched app to read. If just keeps loading and loading and doesn’t actually show me anything. Please fix! I’d like to read before bed again.
  • Lock rotation doesn't stay locked! 2/5

    By Wanlily1
    If you lock it in landscape mode, when you close the app and reopen it, it will be locked in portrait mode. Very annoying to have to go to the settings to un-lock and re-lock. Every single time. This is the main reason I use the kindle app instead even though I would prefer not to give amazon any $.
  • 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. It is hard to exit the current screen and search. I have to randomly tap the screen in different places so I can find the search menu.
  • Clock 5/5

    By sam0127
    Clock at the top of the page is missing in the latest version. Bring it back. It only took four years, but it’s back!!! Thank you
  • Shelves 4/5

    By Astros Grandma
    I love reading on my Nook. I do wish there was a better way to organize my books though. This one is not very user friendly.
  • Love it!!! 5/5

    By Swift110
    I love this app, and all the new features it has. If you are a book lover like me, you should get this app.
  • I’m hooked 5/5

    By Momma flaten
    I have to admit.....I haven’t read a real, hands-on, hardback or paperback, book since I got my first nook almost 10 yrs ago. And I read everyday. I love having so many books to choose from in my library, on my phone or iPad, wherever I am. My husband is another story....he has an iPad and phone too, and I’ve seen him reading on them now and then, but he still considers himself an old school book reader. Real books. He says it’s not the same when you can’t turn the pages. I say, I TURN THE PAGES ON MY NOOK TOO! Whatever.....he’s on a first name basis with our librarian, and that’s ok too. But I’m hooked on my Nook.
  • Books don’t stay in app 1/5

    By Les8312
    Every time I want to look at a book I have to download it again. Terrible experience!
  • New Book purchase 3/5

    By Roweena
    Sometimes a new book purchase will not appear on app even after a refresh. It will suddenly appear at random.
  • Definitely worth it 5/5

    By Brii1197
    Best app ever! Amazing books just a click away
  • Reading when I want to 5/5

    By NNYGardener
    If I didn’t read on my phone or tablet at night, I’d have no time to read at all and Nook makes it easy. No lights allowed in the bedroom when husband is trying to sleep
  • Downloading books 1/5

    By She oxoxox child
    Every time I close out of the app I have to re-download the book I am reading. Why can it never keep the book downloaded? I like the app besides that!
  • So easy to use! 5/5

    By Auntkats
    Using an E-reader to access my nook books. It’s the best of all worlds!
  • Nook needs app to purchase 3/5

    By Harley Gram
    I loved my Color Nook and when it finally died after several years of using it I was very excited to learn I could have the app on my tablet and still read all of my collection. However, i found out you can't actually do that and it is actually a very troublesome process to get a bit ok. I do not understand why in the world that a person can't order from the app. It is so aggravating to have to log in one place and order then leave that to go download the books and read them somewhere else. I find myself turning to Kindle more and more because it is a one stop shop. If you want to keep your readers then fix this huge problem.
  • Dust 5/5

    By pat48sy
    Very involved story going back to old cases pertaining to new cases
  • Read and Dream 5/5

    By Bier Trinker
    I have been reading my Nook for years. The first one I bought still works great. I now have three . Yes I know why. Simple all I have to do is be lazy. Pick one of the up in a different room of my house and read them . Why not life is hard enough so keep your reading simple. Read on and dream away the everyday life of others peoples needs and enjoy yours. Go to your Nook and escape to your imagination. It makes life better! :)
  • I like Nook 4/5

    By wehr18
    The app works easily and I enjoy reading my Nook books. The reasons why I don't give the app 5 stars are very personal: 1) I wish the page numbers always showed and 2) I wish the menu items in the top right were spread out across the top so I wouldn't have to go through 2 steps to, for instance, look up a highlighted word. Otherwise it's a dream.
  • Can’t get book I just bought 1/5

    By Photodiver7
    I just bought a Nook bookAnd it isn’t available and it is an book and should just be there but it isn’t.
  • From an avid reader 4/5

    By KDDeLong
    I enjoy the Nook app quite a bit. I have it on my phone and iPad and I have an older NookHD. My one complaint is that when you organize your books into bookshelves there is no way to sort them by author or title. They just get thrown in there any which way or by most recent. And when you have as many titles as I do (closing in on a thousand) being able to sort them within my shelves would be much more helpful!
  • Outstanding app 5/5

    By Mouse cherub
    All the fun to use!
  • Doesn’t seem to work. 1/5

    By Alc62
    I can’t open the books. Need I say more
  • Okay, but needs work. 3/5

    By ChristinaGuza
    Reading in the app is fine, as is accessing and managing my entire library. It would gain a higher rating if there was a way to purchase books from either the book app or the main BN app. I mean, what good is a digital store app if you can’t make purchases from it? Considering you can purchase digital content from the nook device itself, this makes no sense to me. It would also gain another star rating if they had competent people working the customer “help” center. I have never been more frustrated than when trying to resolve an issue with BN. First off, the 800 number is a joke. It is impossible to get through to a live person. In the miraculous chance you do reach someone, it’s some off-shore, non-English speaker who doesn’t understand what I’m asking and is completely incapable of providing any help. I miss the old BN who had competent people working the help line and could understand what was going on instead of just reading from their script.
  • No prices for books and can’t actually buy them anyway?? 2/5

    By SoulTermination
    Love that I can read the books I’d gotten on my ancient Nook on my phone because my Nook is a piece of crap. Would love it more if, when I went to purchase more books, they actually had the prices for books and I could purchase them without having to go to a website (that seems to rarely work...) or use yet another stupid app!
  • Ticked off, iPad nook frozen. Driving me crazy 5/5

    By Family angel
    Love my nook. This app has issues! It has frozen, I cannot turn a page. How do you uninstall? I am not tech savvy and very frustrated. Well you showed me how to fix this app and it is perfect. Found how to uninstall, made sure was fully charged, turned off overnight and when opened it up was fixed. Thanks for the help. I love my new iPad and along with my nook tablet I go everywhere with my nook books. Much easier to take tablet than 2,000 books. Thanks again. One very happy customer.
  • Nook 3/5

    By Shodiva
    Have nook color and really love it but I don’t like that it doesn’t let me know that I already have the book I am ordering in my archive, I have a few books that are ordered twice. Some have a new cover but others are the same,it is frustrating that I paid twice for the same book
  • Cannot purchase books in app 1/5

    By zalithia
    I recently switched from a Samsung tablet to an iPad and was shocked to learn i can’t purchase novels in the app. That is very frustrating!!!
  • Nook 3/5

    By ucgross
    I love my Nook app except for the numerous steps needed to remove ,archive ,categorize ,sort ,organize etc. books in your collection. Some books even by the same author cannot be grouped together to make it easier to find in my library. I love having all my books with me whenever I want to read but an easier organization system would be greatly appreciated.
  • Weird app behavior 1/5

    By sjpBrooklyn
    Nearly every time I open this app - several times a day- it makes me download the book I am reading from scratch with no explanation.
  • It’s ok 3/5

    By BreeMarie.143
    You can’t buy books on your phone through the app anymore. I used to be able to read a sneak peak and hit purchase. Now I have to remember the name, go online and buy it when on my phone. I don’t have to do that with my kindle app. I wasn’t a kindle person but I may be now. So sad! I liked my nook app! I have a nook but I rarely use it. I use my phone app instead.
  • Losing all my books 1/5

    By Waldo32
    I am absolutely sick and tired of the Nook app suddenly deciding I am running a little too low on disk space for its own comfort (2.26 GB available) and removing the books from my device and making me download them again. STUPID. No other app does this to me. So, on multiple occasions, I open my Nook app because I’m in the middle of no where (meaning “NO INTERNET ACCESS”) and low & behold ... all my books are gone. My books are the most important item on my iPad ... more than my music, movies, etc. I sure wish Barnes & Noble agreed with me, but obviously not. Nook really, really needs a switch where I can select “NEVER REMOVE A BOOK FROM THIS DEVICE WITHOUT MY EXPLICIT PERMISSION. I AM AN ADULT AND FULLY AWARE OF THE POTENTIAL CONSEQUENCES OF MY DECISION.” If this is something Apple forced on you, that would be good to know too. Please get this fixed. I’m tired of lugging around a semi-useful paper weight when I’m traveling in remote areas. BTW, it’s also a pain to keep re-downloading my books over and over.
  • Keeps crashing 1/5

    By Writer Glo aka Bookworm Momma
    When I first got the app it was really nice. Then after several updates on Barnes & Noble‘s end this stupid app keeps crashing I have to keep re-downloading my books it’s completely annoying it makes me love the Kindle app more and I’m sad that I had to give it one star
