Keeps getting better but...

I've been a Nook app user for a long time as well used an actual Nook. All-in-all I've been happy with the app and Nook and that's why I gave 4 stars. I deducted 1 star because I wish I could control my experience a bit more with folders or categories that I can set. I like that books can group together finally but not all of them do. For example you have 10 books in a collection and for some reason 2 of them show up separately. ??? Must be some type of flaw. And you can't drag them into the collection. Why not? If I want them there, I should be able to make it happen. In the past I could easily reorganize my collection by dragging the books and move them around, I haven't figured out how to do it yet on this update. I believe I'm being pretty fair by not deducting another star for still no in App purchasing capabilities. What's up with that? Seems a tad outdated when I can do that from iBooks. Keep it up Nook and B&N, I have faith you'll get there. I'm still a big fan. :)

Long Time Nook Lover!!

I've had and loved the Nook since its first edition and have continuously upgraded till I finally had the Nook Tablet. However when I finally purchased apple products (first the iPod touch 4th gen. then the iPhone 5) I couldn't not download the Nook app so I could carry all my book with me without having to carry extra devices and charger cords for them. This app is perfect. I finally had to upgrade to 128GB iPhone 6+ so I could download all my books an have them at hand whenever I want with out running out of space on my phone. I LOVE this app! It's awesome. It keeps track of your bookmarks, it lets you lookup words in the middle of reading should you need to and it groups your books by series so their easy to find and its really just a great app. No complaints abt it. If you have a Nook, this app is a must for you to have easy access to your books on your mobile device.

Better than the last version but still not great.

Things that still need to be changed to make the UI better:
-Format of home library screen needs to have quicker/easier access to menu at top of screen. Having to scroll all the way up to change the sorting feature or library is annoying.
-when I tap on a title to download a book, there should be an option to OPEN it. Having to tap the title again after having to tap it to download is LAME. The same should happen when I unarchive a book. If I'm unarchiving it, *of course* I want to read it. What else would I be doing?
-manage title button is useless. The only option I've seen after choosing "manage" is to archive or unarchive. So maybe the manage button can be eliminated and the choice can be to archive or unarchive.
Those are the main things that constantly bug me about the app. I'm sure there are more things that can be improved but I can't think of them at the moment.
