Customer Reviews


First of all, I am a first and last time user of the Barnes and Noble app and I would like to express my initial dislike for it. I added a bunch of books from a list that I would have liked to purchase and I added them to the cart. I got away for a second to check my balance and I come back and the whole cart is empty! I call customer service and ask if there is anything they can do about the lost books and they say that they cannot retrieve any information unless the order has been placed. My only problem is that if the order was placed then I would not need to retrieve the information from my cart, because I would have already purchased the items I needed. Secondly, it's always telling you to turn off airplane mode and to use wifi when airplane mode is off and you are in fact using wifi. I will not be returning to use this app because of the frustration it has caused all within the first ten minutes of me using this app

Everything except...

First and foremost, this is not a perfect app and I would have expected a bit higher quality coming from Barnes and Noble. The menus and displays feel haphazardly placed together and unless you know specifically what you are looking for, it is a bit challenging to find that next interesting book. What irked me the most was the fact that the app does not offer the capability to download nook books which would have been extremely handy. I may have overlooked the section somehow, but I believe that I have combed through the majority of the app. Otherwise, it gets the job done when it comes to ordering a book that is not in store.

Nook books

Since the latest update I have had multiple problems that I've addresses with customer service who basically told me it wS my phone. But now as I read other reviews I know it is you and not me. As some of the others have said you can search for nook hooks but can't order them. I did finally find a way back to
B& and sometimes it lets me order and sometimes not. But it is PIA to have to login then go into my account to be able to even find the link to b& It's really getting to the point of me possibly stopping using my nook and going to a kindle. Besides the fact they have one button ordering they also have way more books. Half of the authors I read don't have nook books but they are on kindle.
