Customer Reviews

A disgrace to book lovers everywhere

The Barnes & Noble app has been one of my favorite since I downloaded it. The new update, to say the least, has ruined my life and made my anger increase by 50% every time I use it. This app is similar to the mobile website, which is slow, useless, and simply irritating. The app always closes on me or just simply freezes. The layout is alright but not the best; not like the old version was. Was this app made as an ode to horrible apps everywhere? Whoever decided to give the "ok" on this app surely must not know what the consumers like or will use. Once again the new update is horrible and I hope to see it restore to its original, glorious form. Barnes & Noble, please listen to all these reviews and change your awful app. I love your company and everything you do, I'm just simply disappointed in the way this app is headed down.


Right now, the only other app on my phone I hate more than this one is Facebook. This app is ridiculously slow and cumbersome. It's unresponsive to the point that you end up somewhere completely unexpected when it finally catches up to your taps.
I don't even know about any particular features... I just wanted to do some pre-shopping research for books that I'd hoped would be on the shelf at the store. At this point, I'm writing this review, deleting the app and winging it; preschooler and toddle in tow to boot!
B&N, you need to find someone that can make this app actually work. Not only does Amazon's app kick the socks off of yours, they have cheaper prices (plus free shipping) on everything I looked at.

You get absolutely nothing with this

First off, this app is exactly what you use when you open up their website in safari. Second, there is no wish list on this app. Third, you have to sign in every single time you open this app. Fourth, when you click a link to your order tracking number it takes you to the page but (if there's more than one shipment in the order which happens almost every time to me) you have to close the app and sign back in to look at another one.
Just use their website from a computer and you will run into about half the problems the app gives you.
