Customer Reviews

Excellent App

As a book lover, this app is fast and easy to use. When I want to buy a book, which is frequently and on line it's a tad bit cheaper if you don't mind waiting a couple of days, it's quite simple and quick to do. It's not a lot of hassle. At first putting your credit card info takes like 5 minutes and after that it's just a quick click. If you are a BN member it becomes even easier especially because it is free express shipping, it's cheaper and you get a 10% discount and even more if you have a coupon. Love this app!!

Great for browsing

For everyone complaining that they can't buy Nook books through the app, unless something has changed, that is Apple's fault. They want you to buy eBooks from them, and have not allowed purchases of other eBooks through apps, so take that complaint to Apple!
The app is great for looking for books, reviews, etc., and making decisions about which ones I want and don't want. Just takes a couple extra clicks over to Safari to buy the Nook versions.


I have been using the app for quiet a while now and should say it has been a good experience so far. However, I would like to suggest 2 improvements that I think many would agree on. Number one is the Wish list, which I use a lot in the desktop version and number 2 is ability to stay signed in even when I close the app. It is just so annoying to retype my e-mail and password over and over again. Thank you.
