Quick, dependable, easy
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.
Highlighting handles need fix, but colors are nice
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.
Can’t buy books in app?
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.
