ragingly incompetent


Barnes & Noble does not want any online business. That is the most positive conclusion I can come to, considering the abysmal quality of their app and website. Expect things to time out, 404 you, crash, and about every level of frustration imagineable. After no less than 12 tries to get into my account to change my address, and continuoually reaching error messages, I changed my address and placed an order, only to have that order shipped to the address I had deleted. Two weeks later, and I still haven't received my full refund. Email Help requests go unanswered, and chat is okay, but only if the site is actually working, which is about 25% of the time.

When B&N goes out of business, one of the primary factors will be their incompetent and horrid attention to having a remotely useful online presence.

Frustratingly slow


This update is terrible and better described as a downgrade. It has slowed down and almost runs like visiting the mobile website. I purchase books online frequently and mainly downloaded the app to save my login information so
That I don't have to deal with logging in every time. However this app requires that you log in every time despite shaving the "remember me" option.

The search bar disappears from the top of certain pages and only after hitting the back button several times can you get back to another search. Not to mention each page takes twice as long to load as just going on an internet browser on your device. All in all, more annoying to use that safari.

Redirected to a 3rd party site via this app. How?

Yo comprendo español

1. It’s annoying that you have to go to the B&N app to buy ebooks before you read them on Nook. If B&N fails as a company, that is bc Apple has the sense to allow you to buy ebooks directly on the iBooks app.

2. The app is slowwwwwww.

3. When the app finally loaded, I was redirected to a site that sells kitchen gadgets. Don’t get me wrong. My kitchen could use some things, but I originally came to the B&N app to buy an ebook on abandonment issues since I can’t afford a therapist. The fact that the B&N app took me to a 3rd party website is not helping with those issues. I feel abandoned by B&N. I do not feel safe anymore using this app.
