Useless for choosing physbooks
Can't look-inside as I could at the store (so I can see if it's interesting or not), can't order nook-books, and the thing overruns long titles on each other (ugly & illegible). No way to put authors on an "alert" list, so the app will keep track of new releases in hardcover & softcover (w/option to delete books from the list individually of not interested).
Shoddy work, with little attention to how customers really shop. Well, except for the ones who only buy Big New Releases, maybe. Not the ones who go browse the shelves & buy $174+ when they get to read a few pages.
Finally, after 5 long years, B&N has done a beautiful job in updating the app.
The UI and functionally have been increased hundredfold. Now you can browse books more easily and buy straight from the app. Not to mention the beautiful high resolution graphics optimized for the Retina iPhones and iPads.
I've been waiting for an update like this from B&N for a long time! I'm glad to see the iPhone 5 screen support, iPad support, and retina display, and more. There is still more though that the app could have. This includes Passbook support for B&N Membership card, coupons, and gift cards. Also, support for iBeacons throughout stores would be nice.
Over all, a nice app and a great update!
