Customer Reviews

Update Thank You

Thanks for the most recent changes to fonts in your update. The update also said there were margin updates, but couldn't find any setting to change the block margins to ragged edge margin. I have had several eye surgeries and the more bold text is a real help. An additional assistance would be the adding of the Dyslexic font found in the Overdrive app. This font is very easy on the eyes for those of us with a vision problem or have dyslexia as it draws the eye down to the bottom of the line of text with the weight of the letters. Keep up the improvement, you're making it easier to use this app again. Font size needs a little more variation, moving up a size should increase the size by 1.5 not double. The smallest is a touch too small, but next up cuts the amount of text in half, being too much of an increase for a speedy reader, turning the page too much. But on the flip side of the coin I can tell you're listening to those of us who depend on a ereader because of vision problems.

Love Nook!!

I have been reading my books on Nook for years. It took a little time to get use to reading on my Nook but it is so worth it. No more having your bookmark fall out and searching for your last page. Nook remembers where I was when I stopped, tells me how many pages I have to go until the end of the chapter! If you are an avid reader, don't hesitate! Once you take your Nook with you when you get your oil change or travel with it, you will be hooked! When you finish your book you aren't sitting there wishing you had another one -- you probably already have another book waiting for you! And less weight traveling. No more packing several books or lugging two on the plane! No more buying the same book because they put a new cover on it -- Nook (Barnes and Noble) tells you you already have it! I highly recommend Nook!

Two Annoying Issues

I read on two devices, an iPad when I'm home, and an iPhone when I'm out. I wish when you read a notification on one device, it would automatically mark it read on the other device as well.

The other problem is more annoying, and that's that the reading position doesn't sync between the two devices consistently. Sometimes it will, sometimes it won't, and the only pattern I've seen is that it doesn't like to sync in both directions in a relatively short time. For instance, I read at home, then I go out and it syncs the position on the iPhone, but when I come back home in a couple of hours it doesn't sync the new position on the iPad. Or it could just as easily go the other way: it won't sync while I'm out, but it will when I come back home.
