Customer Reviews


I love BN with everything in me. However, here recently I have trouble with logging into my own account. I even tried "forgot your password" just to see if it would log me in. Unfortunately, it won't allow me. It says my email is unreadable. I even noticed when I try to confirm my email. My email is in foreign symbols. I'm not sure how that is possible. I even deleted BN app off my phone, and it still does the same thing. I hope the problem gets fixed, because I was in the process of ordering Harry Potter Hardcover Boxed Set: Books 1-7. It's cheaper online than in store, but now I cannot order. I'm very unhappy!

Looks and feels like a web app.

If I wanted a web app, I'd use your mobile website. This looks even worse than before the update, plus it's now unacceptably slow.

Give me the native iOS look and feel or pull the app from the App Store. Until then, 1 star.

Also, I can't log into the app nor your mobile website because the page thinks my password doesn't meet the password requirements. This happens whether I type in my password or copy/paste it in. I am mysteriously able to log in to the desktop website, though.

Really bad app that often doesn't work

I downloaded the app today because I signed up for a Barnes and Noble membership, and want to spend money on many books. Unfortunately, I already had to delete the app and re-install it 4 times! The app will freeze constantly. And even when it is working, it works slow. This is really unfortunate because I want to shop for and buy a lot of books. On a side note, the B&N telephone customer service is awful too. Very rude and incompetent and foreign. I was hung up on by one customer service rep.
