Worst app ever! Minus 5 Stars!!

This has to be the worst and most frustrating app I have ever used! Or should I say, not been able to use!
I tried this afternoon to order 3 items, but every time I chose the submit order option, it would tell me that the tax on my order had gone up and then it would give me the option to submit the order or to return to the previous page to review the changes. On the previous page, it showed the correct tax, but if I chose the submit order it would give me the same message over and over. I was never able to place the order.
Later this evening, I got on the app again, hoping to purchase a different item. Again, the same thing happened. I called customer service, and the woman that I talked to was not at all helpful; I asked for her supervisor and was told to "call back tomorrow as there was no one there. When I asked for her name, she hung up the phone!
After being a Barnes & Noble for many years, I think their incompetence and their indifference to customers has finally driven me away.
I am deleting the app and cancelling my membership!

Old-Like ... Books

Too much touching to navigate, sort of like having to turn a page in a book... I'm not lazy but, life seems to be getting faster. Faster can equate to shorter in the long run if you have to drive 20 in a 75 mph speed limit.
There are too many windows to climb back through after an item is added to the cart.
Not enough info for Music section of the app. No list of the tracks which also leaves no way to sample. You use to have more up-to-date sampling 10 years ago. As the information age is growing in speed and volume, it seems the people you gave the task of representing you on the internet have pointed you in the wrong direction. This app will help to bury you and books forever in the shelves of future libraries... it will take an archaeologist to find them. Libraries will in effect become museums... bye-bye.


Don't waste your time on this application. It will leave you angry, frustrated and not even wanting to read the book anymore! A process that should take 30 seconds ( which is why they call it, "instant purchase") literally can take on average, 30-40 MINUTES. I always have a major problem with connecting to my account. I am forced to login and out of my account multiple times before B&N literally recognizes my account as being valid. Instant purchases never go through. I'm even asked repeatedly to log into my account when I'm ALREADY LOGGED IN!! If, you can find an alternative company to order your books from, save yourself the time and energy and go elsewhere. To add insult to injury, it took me several attempts to post this review. They dropped my review and I had to write it all over again!!
