Many previous concerns addressed. Thanks! Good enough for 4 stars. 1) Photo books (e.g. Humans of New York) won't install-FIXED. 2) Needs folders-FIXED 3) keeps losing books and book covers. Frequently must re-download-SEEMS FIXED 4) Have some Japanese lang books where font doesn't show-NOT YET FIXED 5) Needs auto-scrolling page view-NOT YET IMPLEMENTED.

Don Piven

I love Nook again Lots of stuff fixed in this release, especially opening sideloaded content from shelves (yay!!!). A couple of minor annoyances still left to be addressed but the dealbreakers are fixed. Thanks, B&N!

A Google User

Are you guys drunk? This is the worst redesign of an app ever. People want to easily get to their collection and it's like you guys went out of your way to make it the most difficult thing for the user. Hire some people that actually can design through the eyes of a user. Ridiculous.

kari livengood

I love this app I love having my books on here. No it isn't perfect their are some things I wish where less touchy like it highlighting words when I'm just turning the page but other than that this is a very good app and it's better than carrying a huge bag of books around.

Keisha McCoy

All I love Barnes & Noble, always have and most likely will. I wish that the sync between my nook color and this app was better but all in all good app. Only wish the full app can be completely moved on to an SD card instead of leaving the mandatory 30.0 MB on the internal memory of the device

Dana Pritchett

The newest version The goid: I can now access all the children's books that I have for my little ones on their tablet with the app, as well as my phone. Shelves are nice, I just need to reorganize everything. Previously I had a "the bad" section but the powers that be fixed all of my issues, I love my nook and the app, such great customer service .

Jason Campbell

5/2015 update ruined this for me This used to be my go to ebook reader. The update in April removed the ability for me to organize my side loaded books by author, and then the update in May was the final straw. May update refuses to start if you have no Internet connection. I read offline most of the time, I tried going online long enough to sign into my account, but as soon as offline it errors saying it needs a network connection. I switched to Alkido, free, online or offline and feature rich.

A Google User

Like the old version better Constantly getting the unfortunately stopped working error. A good shopping experience does not outweigh a great reading experience.

Paul Armstrong

Oops! Was getting an error so reinstalled the app, now have 'lost' all my books and newspaper subscription. Please fix.

Mellissa Montft

What happened? I can't even read any of my books now. Barnes and Noble one of the highest charged for ebooks and now I can't even open books I have purchased. Looks like I'll be taking my business to Kindle permanently

Emily Wisdom

Nook Sometimes when the pages turn, the words don't change. You used to be able to tap on the author and link straight to the store. I miss that.

AnnaBeth McClain

OMG ARE YOU KIDDING ME?! This supposedly easier to use app is a joke! I update it to find I can't delete the books I don't want to keep or that I just don't like unless I delete them from the archive. Fix this NOW!

Jason Farrenkopf

Very good now!

Gene Blum

My favorite reading app By far my favorite reading app. The store is well organized, the reader itself is great, B&N has a solid reputation and relationship with authors and publishers, and there is little more I can ask for. This app convinced me to opt in for an e-ink nook which I use in frequently at home. The only place it lacks in is a "read aloud" feature like in Google Play Books (my 2nd favorite reading app). I recommend this app and market to everyone. Comic reader is superior to Comixology, but not enough comics.

Sara Moadi

I liked the old version The new version is annoying. It is complicated for no reason whatsoever. If I am offline the app will shut down on its own because the shop cannot open. It takes several tries to open the app when I am not connected to the internet. Also I have no idea how to access archived books through the app. Please remove the store or make it so that I can access it only when I need to.

Vegas Bailey

Side Loaded Book Feature Enabled Again Have now enabled ability to read sideloaded books again. However, the sideloaded books still do not show up my library or "Currently Reading" like in previous version ANDMBL/TAB. And I miss the center crease in 2 page landscape mode (gives it a more book like reading experience). Even the Kindle app has that now.

Melissa Heredia

I like the new look BUT hate that I can't sort my books by author AND where is my option to lend books??? Nice looks is not enough for me. I like older version better!

LaRissa Flanagan

Folders? I love this app. I just wish it had the option for folders like my actual nook does. It was so much easier to find certain books in the folders than having to go through every book individually in the library.

A Google User

I can't believe you guys got ridf of the reading now option! Seriously. you have to get it back. it's 1 of the things we use the most.

HA Duganieri

Not happy Ever since the update I cannot turn my pages. Its totally random. One second I'm absorbed in a story, then boom, it freezes. It is VERY ANNOYING! EDITED TO ADD ---- it is incredibly annoying to get reset to the book cover constantly as well. What is going on? Nook used to be awesome

Wendy Hicks

Disappointed Since the recent update, I cannot read my books. I have paid quite a bit of money for my collection of books. Was excited to start reading my newest book I purchased right before I did the update, and now I cannot read any of them. Will be looking into other reading apps now. Guess I will have to take my losses.

Matt Needham

Page syncing is meh Pages don't always synch from my phone and vice versa. If that was fixed I'd give it five stars.

Olivia Demko

Great books, horrible library I love having books at my fingertips. I hate having to search through a fancy format to find my books. Why can't i just list them? Why can't i list them by author? Why does the app insist on showing me a big picture of the cover and then a clipped version of the title? I can't tell what number they are in the series because the app went 8 display the full title. I think the app is built for a big screen and my little Samsung screen makes it not very useful.

Deborah Doerr

Nook app Such a great tool for those of us who like to get right to the reading!

Tina Hall

I would give a higher rating but, when I buy a book, it is only one 1 of my nooks.

George Maxwell

It works as intended. I enjoy taking all my books with me.

Calvin Guyer

Clunky I use both Nook and Kindle apps. Kindle app is much better. You can highlight across a page. Nook highlighting causes the screen to go dark then reappear. Highlights from my former Nook Reader don't come across into the app properly

Karen Lance

Fixed in upgrade! Why disable the screen saver? This was my favorite reading app, but I'm now using it on a non-Nook device and it's disabled the screen saver -- which means that if I read until I fall asleep in bed, I wake up to a device that's been on all night and an almost drained battery. It didn't do that on my B&N devices. Until this gets fixed I'll be buying all my ebooks from Amazon.

A Google User

Back to being great Thanks for the option to not receive notifications.

Jim McClanahan

Now a sales app, not a reader app... I am usually reading several books at a time. Nook always did a good job of keeping recent reads easily accessible. Now things are hidden an the page is filled with things like ads or categories like magazines where I have nothing. My first tablet was a Nook Color and I have tended to use the nook app as my main reader ever since. Now it is nothing but one big advertisement with your content hidden away somewhere. Very disappointed.

Trista Ward

Please fix problems I went from 5 stars to 1 star an would give you a zero star if i could. Ever since the last update the app wont load at all I hate it and a screen keeps popping up saying it wont load giving the choice of ok or report. Please fix this issue because I have books that I preordered and now can't read now that they have come in.

Owen Williams

Stopped opening content as of May 12 update Had been working GREAT prior to May 12 update. Now I cannot open ANYTHING. I use this app to read 2 daily newspapers as well as e-books. Now useless to read these PURCHASED products. If not fixed QUICKLY, I will need to move to aternative product.

Justin Brewer

It's ok Easy to use but a bit basic

Vinny D

Great App Thanks B&N for this app, it's great, a few hiccups with notes and highlights but nothing big, of course I want more bells and whistles (read to me feature on all books makes for a great driving companion) but over all it's a wonderful app. UPDATE: Thanks B&N for Nook Audio.

April Ellis

Stop being able to auto read for more the 5minute at at. Fix please

Kevin Jacobson

Was B&N smoking crack? New update sucks. All advertising, can't see your books. Have to scroll forever if you have a lot. It used to be a reader app where you could buy books. Now it's a pop up ad that lets you read. App takes up so much space, 500 mb in my case. That's far more than Kindle even though both have a similar amount of books. I have gift card credits I am walking away from as the app is unusable. Programming by Healthcare. Gov

Leslee Hammers

Update is awful The update is difficult to navigate and my bn wish list doesn't sync. Nook used to be my preferred eBook app, not any more. I'll be using Kindle in the future. What a shame.

Georgina Andersen

All Books Nook has always made me happy. I wish it had more customer reviews, but all over it is great.

Luciann Guzman

Love the update!!!!

Дмитрий М

The best reading app

Charles Bingham

Great app Great & mobile way to read your favorite book. To note though, not all e-books are less expense than the paper version. Initially to pay less, was one of the main reasons I got the Nook eReader & app

elizabeth giebler

Great app I love that I can shop my nook books and read them without having to purchase an actual nook. There are so many free titles as well. Only thing I wish they would come out with is something like movies... When you purchase a book get the digital nook copy free.

A Google User

New update is better I do love the new update. However the app keeps going dark. Like seriously, the screen on my phone and tablet goes dark and it's hard to get out of it. Otherwise I LOVE the new update.

Kyle Townsend

Piles of books in my pocket Love to read but not buy the actual comic books works grate being able to get them all in one small place would have a mountain of comic books

Velinda Haywood

Good App My disappointment is my books aren't lined beautiful where I can easily see them. I have been a customer of Nook for several years and shall remain so.

Jen Wolff

I used to love the nook app, but when they made a major update recently, all of a sudden I cannot read without being trapped in full screen (meaning I can no longer see when an email comes in or what time it is etc). Secondly now any books that i load in from other sources get piled in the middle of my bookshelf alphabetically. On the earlier versions if you had it sorted by most recent, any new additions would show up right at the front of the book listings. Much much easier than scrolling through tons of books to find where it ended up. I wish i could revert back to the old app. In the mean time I will be searching for a reasonable alternative.

david nunez

Nook Works great, but much better on my Samsung as far as shopping and buying then in ipad , not sure why, overall very happy , the download is easier than with kobo

Becky Hayes

Long time nook user I have a nook, but I like that I can have it on my phone. Since the update, can't get my books on different shelves, you need to simplify it. Otherwise no problems.

Sam Hickey

Terrible I no longer have a Nook, and the apps no longer let me download or even access books that I paid money for. You can explain that away as much as you like with your contractual agreements and such, but to us regular people that's called stealing. Really, you guys were failing to begin with, but locking people out of content they rightfully paid for is just the final nail in nook's metaphorical coffin. What few customers you had left are leaving now, and I certainly won't be buying anything else. Crooks!

Stephanie Carmichael

Very upset with new update! I love nook app, I use it all the time (before update 5 stars) ... After, this last update it keeps crashing, like 5 times in less than 5 minutes. I'm so disappointed, it's very frustrating to have to continuously restart it, because it keeps crashing or just going black.

Ftice Ice

Ap won't load! I have a nook and also have ap on my phone but when I try to add to my new tablet it says package not signed properly??? What's all that about????

Genny Donart

Kids Read & Play books crash it EVERY TIME! Years ago I owned a Nook tablet. My daughter loved the Read&Play books. When it died, I decided to get a Samsung tablet instead, and assumed that the Nook app would allow us to use her books. Stupid me! Recently an update for the app said it would allow kids books to run. I call shenanigans! Every time I try to open a Read & Play book I get a crash message. I contacted costumer support. They gave me some suggestions that boiled down to uninstall/reinstall. I've done that repeatedly and am working with version as tech support asked. Still no love. Worthless! Now a beta tester. Well see...

aLiShA ScAiFe

Love it ?? Nook app is recommended for all the book loving freaks out there cx

Sallie Kerr

Great way to Read I love the nook app for reading. It's easy to get books from Barnes & Noble. I like all the features and being able to switch back and forth on other reading devices. It is great?


Enjoying Nook The Nook app allows me to enjoy books when carrying books might not be as easy. Really like the app

Pat Gilbert

You needed to improve before, but these changes make me want to go back to using Kindle only again. There are so many issues. ...a customer can not even be assured that they are not buying the same book twice. Losing my business.

A Google User

Latest update ruins reading experience for me The good: finally more font sizes. The bad: there's no longer an option for really tiny margins; the black theme is faded and hard to read; the new bookshelf feature is nice, but doesn't let you organize your own files; no option to force justification anymore. Overall, it just makes the app much less enjoyable. Finally made me look for a better alternative, which I found in Mantano Reader.

James Clarke

Could be better Very clunky. Hate have to keep turning off the spam notifications and have them turn on by them selves again...

Lisa Harrigan

It'fixed, YAY!!!! Thank you! I can once again love this app. The issue of not working on the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 (pre 2014 edition) has been fixed and I can one again enjoy my books! :)

April Baynard

Slow to load Love the app, hate the update. Wish I could uninstall the update. It takes 25 seconds (at the least) to load after reading so I can turn the page. Before the update, I never had a problem finding the book I wanted to read, it opened to the correct page, and it loaded the book automatically. I could read at my own pace. If it ain't broke, don't fix it. Now it's broken, fix the dang thing. Samsung Galaxy Note 3

Julia Klag

Great APP I love this app. It syncs with my nook and and works really well with my smartphone. It also works well with regards to buying books via the app. I am not entirely happy with the interface of the newest version. The search feature interferes with my finding desired info. Otherwise top notch

Mark Gums

Improvements in functionality, but still needs backend work. When the first rewrite of the older Nook app came along I was skeptical. It did have some improvements, but also something of a learning curve. The latest version does smooth a good deal of that out. It has good book organizing and the actual page reading is smooth. The negative is the android version is still very much bloated program-wise. It launches a whole fleet of services along with the main app that it tries to keep running when put in the background, and it does not clean them up fully even when the main app is closed. On my Nexus 7 tablet, I have to go in and kill these or they introduce instability in other apps.

M Banks

This update is USELESS and HORRIBLE. You can't sort books by author and have to wade through crap categories that you don't even use. I am beyond disappointed. The previous version wasn't great but it was functional. I won't be using this on my S4. I would give no stars if I could.

A Google User

MY RESPITE There is nothing like a few pages of a good book to pull you away from your stressful day. I recommend highly

Rick Dubbs

Poor Reader - Few User Options Nook does just fine in delivering content purchased from B & N to your device. However, the reader itself is frustrating and does not permit much in the way of modification. It ALWAYS starts up on the bookshelf screen (displaying every book you own), even if you only own 1 book. It takes 7 taps to switch to night reading with a reduced light level. Also, it always overrides the default time-out setting, which means that if you forget to turn the device off it will happily run your battery to zero. It has often taken me to the end of the book I'm reading, which forces me to make heavy use of the bookmark feature so that I can get back to my proper place. I'm going to try one of the techniques online to break the DRM, and read with CoolReader if I can.

Gunther Herzog

Ragged margins and task-switching strangeness. Just one thing keeps me from considering this as my go-to reader app instead of Google Books or Kindle. Why MUST text in all books always be justified? Since words don't get auto-hyphenated, the result is often quite ugly, and distracts from the reading. Can't believe this issue didn't come up during testing? On the other hand, HUGE PLUS over Google's reader app is the ability to read existing epub files DIRECTLY. None of this upload-then-download nonsense! Okay, just discovered an annoying "feature" that forces me to drop a star. Why does the app disappear when it's not in the foreground? This makes it impossible to conveniently switch from what I'm reading to a note-taking app or website lookup. So much for using this with reference/non-fiction books. Back to Google & Kindle.

Molly Manker

Love app hate update I love my nook app especially when my nook got dropped on the charger and damaged by my dog. But I absolutely hate the new update. I like when I opened it I got to see what I had and hit the shop button and there we go. This new update is what is making me give the app a 3. The update just doesn't work that great and I am not comfortable with it. I felt that with the way it was before the update it was simple easy and straight to the point. If they un-update it then I will give it 5 stars.

Betty Dorsey

"New" Nook I've worn out my second Nook eReader & have switched to a tablet. Very nice & consistent with my Android phone. The Android apps seem more intuitive than the eReader was. Looking forward to future updates.

Rhonda Garber

Great App I love reading on my phone and I find the selections to be plentiful. My only issue is the search option. When shopping and looking for an author it always comes back with the "No matches found." Even when I just finished a book. Liked old version better in this respect.

Joy Hoskins

Not user friendly It crashes regularly, and does not have an intuitive or user friendly unterface. And scrolling through things on a "shelf" is annoying. There is no easy way to categize or resort, not even an option to display as a grid or list as opposed to that annoying shelf.

p Skinner

I've been using this app for several years and I can't say enough about it! I have a little trouble with the dictionary function but I believe that it's user error? and not an issue with the app. I'd most definitely recommend trying it out!

Daniel Beling

Great Great app to read my books and magazines on, especially the magazines, only trouble is some magazines I order on the Nook are not readable on the app on my Samsung tablet, the majority are but there are one or two I cannot read using the tablet

Donna Elble

Great app, but I'm not a big fan of the updated version. I find it more difficult to use. It doesn't open back to the last bookmark. But I still love being able to read my Nook books on my tablet. I'll get used to some of the changes, but some I really don't think are positives.

Gary Tollefson

Shopping on this app is frustrating. Customer reviews don't show up (unable to load data ) and the overview of the book is truncated to just a few lines. It's a miserable experience compared to shopping on an actual Nook device.

Sharon Saxon Hartung

Nook App My Nook HD malfunctioned last week and I was unable to recharge its battery. At midnight, I panicked and download the Nook app to my android tablet. I have been using it for several hours a day since then, and am 100% satisfied. Great job, Programmers and software designers!

j euclid

Taking back... Loved this back a year or so ago but with recent updates has broke this app and made downloads (particularly samples) virtually useless, please fix and I will rate accordingly.

Tanya Salimnia

Love It! I have always loved this app but was unable to use it on my Samsung Note 10.1 after the 05/2015 update. I emailed the development team and they were able to help me resolve the issue and I'm now back to using this app on a daily basis.

Marco Bueno

Can't sign in Stupid app won't let me sign in or create an account. Every time I push one of those options it goes straight to my WiFi settings.

Eileen Horiuchi

Doesn't work I can't get this to work on my Galaxy S4. It keeps me in a loop when I try to log in - it just keeps taking me to the WiFi screen. Very disappointed

cookie Honor

Purchased Books Gone I downloaded this app because my nook broke and I wanted to read my books but the books I purchased aren't showing up. ?

Geoff Ackley

Missing some very basic funtionality Many improvements and almost there but......what is the deal with not being able to organize Shelves?...Release after release and still no functionality there.

mike mullen

Works great, good features Saves your place, synced across multiple devices. Good for annotations. Lots of choices for font and colors. Few quibbles but nothing major.

Melanie Oddo

All my books are here and ready! Love having access to all the books I'm reading when I'm stuck somewhere for any length of time. Sure, when I plan to have down time, I can bring along the Nook. This app is wonderful for all those times I didn't plan for. With all the same features, my whole book list is ready and waiting in my phone. To be honest, with this app, I'm choosing to leave the Nook home more often!

Peter Klein

Great on Android, terrible on Win 10 I love Nook for Android. Only my phone is Android based though and it is tough to do lengthy reading on such a small screen. Unfortunately, my tablet is Windows 10 based and Nook doesn't work on that platform. It cuts out 1/4 of the screen. No one will fix it, so I guess I'm stuck reading on my phone. The lack of cross platform compatibility makes Kindle more tempting, but I still much prefer Nook and I haven't switched yet. It's the best Android reader on the market

Ann Sor-Lokken

Like to read As long as I remember I have carried a book with me wherever I went. As I've gotten older this has made my purse feel heavier and heavier. With a nook I can carry hundreds of books with me so that I always have something to read, books, magazines, scriptures, whatever I am in the mood for. I've had some technical problems from time to time usually the tech support is great sometimes not. But the store personal have always been great and when I have problems with the tech support have helped me to resolve

Kennethian Brown

Can't access library Touching the library icon only returns me to the current book I'm reading. The My library link from my home page does the same thing. I haven't been able to access my full collection since I changed to the LG G4 three weeks ago.

Tomi Castleberry

Love! I love this app! My only issue is that I can't find my wish list. .. other than that, GREAT!

Jane Ferguson

Always there I love it because I have the app on all of my tablets and I can take it with me everywhere and have a book waiting for me to read.

Courtney Caywood

Addiction Enabler What can I say, nook certainly aquiesses to my fevered reading schedules! There is always something delicious to add to my collection! I don't see an end to my addiction any time soon, so nook and I are in it for the long haul!

Candice McMahon

Bringing me great reads Great flawlessly. Brings me all the periodicals I could possibly enjoy.

Liz Calvert

Great app Links to all my android devices so I can read any where and never loose my place.

Gemma B

Wonderful choice Easy to use, good selections and affordable prices!!!

Kia L.

Good Very easy to access. But does anyone else have any problems with buying the movies and shows?

Sue Watson

Peytabee The story line actively involves the reader, drawing you in & keeping you guessing what you will find at the next turn.

A Google User

It's good possibly better than thought. I had liked Google's Books better, for the simple fact it can do text to speech with books, a feature I enjoy with non-fiction and Ivona speech app. Apparently Nook can do that now also, so can compare book pricing finally. Has some books that are not available through Google which is good. As a basic reader it is fine.

Diana Lindoff

Free friday nook book blog vs. Readouts Even with the title of the nook, I still can't find it. Reading a chapter a day is not for me. Too slow. Guess I just sign up with the public library.

Trista McCloy

It works perfect. I can't think of anything they would need to change.

Cindy Starkey

Enjoy my Nook all the time Always there when you're in need to read?

Virgil Hogan

NOOK Great APP. Easy to use. Has the feel of a real book. I love that I can use it with multiple devices and with or without WIFI.

Joshua Way

It's okay It works best as an app on something other than my nook.

Terri Sutton

Love the Nook app I love it. It's so easy to use. It's great to have access to my Nook when its too big to take along or accidentally left behind at home.

devin minor

Very, Very Handy. Want to read something? This app got it all. 10\10

Linda Hwang

Cannot live without it The Nook is so easy to use and very intuitive. I love that it syncs up no matter which device i am on love it

Elizabeth Tucker

Easy to use This app is easy to use. It is so convenient having Nook on my phone. I love it.

Mark Martinez

Excellent Don't know what I would do without my Jesus calling!

Tabatha C

Can read offline Love clicking app takes to current read, don't like no remove button

Lynn March

Love it Its a great app I'm glad that my best friend recommend it and a great guy helped me download it I really do love this app

Ozzie Osband

I used to carry a Bus Book Now I've got Nook on my phone to and can read anytime I've got a spare moment. Now if they can add Location Services to remind me I'm nearing my destination bus stop...

Bonnie Standridge

Works great! I needed it when my Nook died suddenly. This seems stable.


Old version was better This will teach me not to allow this app to update until I read the comments on the "upgrade" first and I'm convinced that it's not a downgrade in disguise. The app is now very unresponsive and won't allow me to open any books. Just sits at a black screen with a spinning circle forever when I try to do that. I can't access any of my content. Oh how I wish I hadn't updated.

Lena BP

Barnes and Noble keeping me as customer Love new nook app. Quick access to books, magazines. Please add a shop widgit. So I can go straight to Nook shop.

Krista Shipman

I wish you had an option to have it read to you without the talkback android voice that's absolutely dreadful. That way I could still read while putting my daughter to bed because when she sees the phone she thinks it's time to get up and play

A Google User

Did we lose our free nook book Friday? When I went to the nook book blog to get the free book for Friday's it routed me to Barnes and Noble readouts and I couldn't find a free book there. Also after navigating to that site a couple times it seems to have blocked me out of even opening the webpage. I get some kind of an error page that says that it won't open the page due to security reasons or area restrictions. Please fix it. Ty

Jenny Ginn

Great app love it! Easy to shop and download I use it everyday. EXCEPT Now that I Moved to Michigan I can't buy books!!! Something about a foreign country?! PLEASE FIX...OR I'LL HAVE TO.KEEP BUYING FROM GOOGLE PLAY

Patsy Bain

I love having my books with me wherever I am.

Erica Meeker

Books are fun Books are fun when you bored

Ira Lacher

Perfect Mobile Companion Integrates nicely with tablet version. Can't think of anything I don't like about it.

Larry Dawson

Best ebook app. Stopped using the other guys. B&N is the ONLY eReader I now have and use.

David T

Life Saver Syncs between my Note 4 and Tab S2. I am living the dream! I am happy. I can write notes on one book and they are on all my devices. I am blessed.

carlos guillen

Very good app helped me out alot in school Hard to navigate to the index then back to the same spot but besides that its perfect

Used to love the app... Everytime I try to go to "my library" it always goes back to the last book I was reading. The only time I can see my library is right after a fresh install. I have waited months and multiple updates for this issue to be fixed. Seriously considering taking my business to amazon Kindle soon.

Lisa Shelton

My ONLY concern is it does not track well what I've puchased. I am a voracious reader and pay little attention to titles...thinking my nook would show if I had already purchased a book. It rarely does.


Nook is the Best I've tried Kindle, Kobo, and others. For me, Nook simply tops 'em all! Not perfect, but there's a lot to love.

Ciarra Smith

Uh oh! Well I have absolutely loved this app for as long as I've had it! Until yesterday when I used it on my new Samsung S7.... now every time I swipe to turn the page the bottom menu icons light up. That's not so bad in a well lit room but if it's dark they're very bright and distracting ? hopefully I can find a setting on the phone that fixes it (I did just get it today so I very possibly could have missed that setting) or that could be a fix in an update?

J May

Excellent update again and a must have reader! Still the Very Best Reader - - And links to all tablets and PC work terrific. But I use NOOK to Read and B&N to buy my many intrusive purchase settings.

Thomas Hawley

LOVE IT!! I'm a 48 state o-t-r truck driver and thus is my library on the road. Aside from very minor spacing issues and word run-on's (which don't bother me and are really rather rare), this app gets it right. Great job, thanks!

Tabitha Sharp

Nook I really enjoy having access to my nook items on my phone. Has made a few unanticipated waits go faster. It's easy to use as well.

Sandra Marshall

Great App My regular Nook broke and I downloaded this app until I could buy a new Nook. I like the app so well that I've decided not to spend the money on another Nook. This app is customizable has the library and shop features and gives instant access to your Barnes and Noble Nook account. Highly recommend.

A Google User

Loyal customer VERY UNHAPPY please fix 5 stars just went down to 1. While logged in to my password protected account, it allows to to make a purchase but won't allow me to access the content without re-entering my name and card info AFTER the purchase is complete? Which would only be a small annoyance if it worked properly but after entering the correct info countless times, I AM STILL UNABLE TO ACCESS THE BOOK I PURCHASED. Killed app, cleared cache, rebooted, etc... nothing. So infuriated right now.

Arianne S

Small peeve I love my nook and this app. This app is especially handy when I forget my nook at home. I'm so much happier now that all of my devices sync up to the current page I'm on.

Haram Kim

Polished and Effective Does its job elegantly and well. Contains a few admittedly superfluous features, but otherwise good.

Jacquelyn Goad

Nook I have had my Nook for a long time, when I changed devices all my books came with me! Excellent app, lots of books and lots of choices

Robert Noll

Robert Moved from my NOOK HD to a bigger, more powerful tablet and had to download the NOOK app. It works great as a app but is not fully integrated into the tablet as my NOOK HD was. Had some trouble with my intial download of new books but a tech guru from the NOOK hotline easily located what I was doing wrong and informed of how to correct it. Very Happy so far.

Bruce Berger

Worst e-reader app in existence. Thieves. That's all I can say about B&N. They update the Nook app and suddenly I can't access 3/4 of the many books I've bought for the app. I need my credit card number - and who hasn't had to change their cc numbers because of security problems?! I don't remember my old card numbers! I wrote to complain and B&N blew me off. Stay far, far away from B&N and its pathetic Nook e-reader app!!!

Carol Stromek

Nook best thing I've ever purchased I gave my original Nook with glow light to my husband, who reads all the time. Although I did not have luck with the HD+, I am delighted with my Galaxy Pro to which I added NOOK.

Rhonda d

Very dependable. Easy use. Loved the nook when it first came out and the color is a great device, but the app that syncs with all my devices so that I can read where ever I happen to have a minute? I love it even more. If you like to read and not have to worry about what page you are on from device to device, this is where its at.

Nee Danuwong

Love and hate Nook I love the convenience of having nooks whenever and wherever one would like. I just don't like being double chsrged, one will be a real charge the second will be pending. One book costs $14.99 bit i'kl be charged twice then wait a few days until the 2nd charge is removed. I authorize for one charge not 2!! The annoying messages for salws, I've turned off notifications but the app will still show the badge that there's a new message. AGAIN

Deanna Bartron

Great e reader Nook is through Barnes and Nobles book sellers. There is tons of content and some of it is free or close to free. I have nothing negative to say about the Nook app.

Becky Gomez

Series book recommendations If reading a series, once you are done reading one of the books that the next book in the series is suggested. The kindle app does that and I love it.

Kari Elder

Broken Suddenly I can't buy anything. It tells me that it's "not available in my country". I live in North Carolina and have for years. I have no idea how to fix this. All the info in my account is correct.

L Donahue

Fit to be tied Eversince Barnes and Noble upgraded the Nook application I can't lend books nor can I receive a lent book. But when I email or call customer support they can't help me and they don't want to do anything about it. They released that software upgrade over 6 months ago and they have yet to fix it!

Allyson Mendez

Preorder won't download I absolutely love this app!!! My only complaint is that my preorder will not download to the app. I tried uninstalling the app and archiving and resyncing the app but it still says it's unable to download the book even when I'm in perfect working wifi. That would be my only complaint about the app. Besides the lack of preorder downloading the app is wonderful for reading on the go.

Arrelle Neal

Love I wish they had more sells if not give discounts to long-term customers!

Caitlin Ciano-McGee

Love the Nook/Nook App period! I have the actual 1st version of the Barnes and Noble Nook since it FIRST came out (You know the worst version because it was the 1st? Like the very first Iphone ever made) And loved it! Now, with it on my phone, I can take anywhere because I can't fit the Nook in my pocket & Bonus=it's in color. One downfall is if it doesn't load right, it skips a page & i have to exit out, then go back in for it to load correctly. Happens a lot and it's definitely not a phone problem. Which is why they get 4 stars

Julie Prunchak

Love it!! Great app. Nice selection of free books for the whole family to enjoy. Prices on books to buy are fairly cheap.

Elle Hoover

If you love to read.... So many little space. I have my (almost) my entire library with me wherever I go!

Sandy Lee

I love Nook! With free books and more that you can pay for, I never find myself wanting for something to read.

shantel boylan

Library on the go! I have always had a deep and loving relationship with books...this app is great, it allows me access to millions of books all in the palm of my hand! Awesome for my commute to and from work

C. Jones

Great Apo Love the ease of this app, great selection of books ?.

Jennifer Worthington

Great app I like how eady it is. Iactually like using it on my tablet more ghan reading from my jook. All of my books transfered as well.

A Google User

Use often I almost always have my Nook with me, and when I don't I can use the Nook app on my phone. I spend alot of time waiting on others so having a book to read or a scrabble game to play helps pass the time.

Aubrey Connett

Would not recommend The app isn't allowing me to open books that have been paid for even with a valid form of payment on the account and customer service is not giving me a straight answer/solution. I would not recommend going through BN for digital books.

Atriel Hudson

Middling Okay I still want recommendations based on my purchases. App wish lists that sync with the B&N website. Full author catalogues. Ability to rate books via the app. News/reviews etc based an author's I like. Book covers even when I'm offline. Series groups that don't glitch, or can be edited. Curated/editable library shelves. This app could be better.

Caleb Price

Great app Awesome app makes reading on the go simple. I am haveing issues with it right now it wont let me log in. It keeps saying unfortunately nook app has stopped. I had an update on my galaxy s5 system this morning and ever since then i cant get on nook. Please fix cause i have books i bought on there i want to finsh reading. I will change my comment and rating once the issue is fixed.

Jessica Hoyt

No problems I haven't had a single problem with the Nook I love it so much. I use it everyday and it is never closed unexpectedly or been inaccessible. Overall this is one of the better apps for reading that I have ever had.

Amber Fiske

Like but do not love Sometimes I still have a hard time finding books that are part of series.


Font size The font size changes drastically from one step to another instead of gradual changes. I have the choice of either Tiny Prints it's very difficult to read as my eyes are changing and huge font size which means only a sentence or so on each page which is irritating to read. I have always enjoyed using the Nook app until I needed to increase the font. This needs to be fixed

Bree Field

SO BEAUTIFUL I love it so much. I love hard cover books too, but if they don't come in hard copys this is the perfect app for getting books on your phone. It passes the time but it is so worth the storage on my phone. I use this app all the time and it doesn't require internet to read the books only for the store does it need the internet. ??


Amazing? I always want to read, but I can't get out to Barnes and Noble much. Having an app to buy all my books is so amazing❤ I wish there was a way to check your balance on the app, but oh well

J May

Excellent update again and a must have reader! Still the Very Best Reader - - And links to all tablets and PC work terrific. But I use NOOK to Read and B&N to buy my many intrusive purchase settings.

Mike Murphy

Great Alternative My puppy ate my Nook (pun'ish intended). It spent 2 combat tours in combat...took about 10min to become the subject of discussion and a digestive uniqueness. My Nook v1.0 still works, but wow, slow. It also survived 2 combat tours. Love it!

Rebecca Clark

Nook App Let's Me Explorer the World Nook and the Nook books have allowed me to escape from Wisconsin winter to Hannibal's crossing of the Alps, plan my summer garden with flowers deer dislike, rocket off to Mars to explore underground cities or go to South America on a major archeological dig. Easy to use with endless adventures.

Alina Monteagudo

Very convenient. If you have a Nook and it runs out of power, you can always finish what you were reading on your tablet with this app. Plus the graphics are more vivid and the price is right.

Henrietta Handy

Love! I really can't say enough good about this app. My hands are very arthritic at times so, with the Nook, I can read no matter how bad my hands are on any given day or size of the book. I especially love this when reading my Bible or other research material: I can highlight words, passages, and even look up some quick facts for reference and elucidation. The Nook app also doesn't crash like some other reading apps I've used in the past. I use the Kindle app as well, but prefer the Nook one.

A Google User

dyoungerson Galaxy S 5 used to work great I love this app , but ever since S5 updated to new Android OS this is the only app that's giving me trouble. If I uninstall it and reinstall it I can read magazines but if I go into my library and open a book it crashes then it doesn't open anymore crashes anytime I try to open it unless you uninstall, hope you guys get it fixed.

Andrea Bandiera

Nook is better than kindle!! I love the Nook app, it's easy and convenient to use. Reading has never been so fun ?

Sandy Saul

Horrible Book reader is usable. The remainder of the Nook app is much more difficult to use than Nook version 3. Shelves are nice idea but poorly implemented. Takes significantly more effort to do things that were click or two in version 3.

A Google User

use all the time Love this app, it's a great app for any book lover. I wish i had found it earlier, you will spend money on it though, so many good books. Just wish there was a way to recieve notifications about fav authors new publications.

Courtney B

Amazing Before this month I never read books. I hated reading with having a comprehension problem for years. But I decided it was time for a change, time to try something new. So I downloaded nook in hopes to start reading so far I have finished 2 books in 10 days. I'm proud of myself and love the way nook is set up and everything it offers. So thank you for a great app that has started to change my life. Truely greatful!

Jo Briggs

Nook book Works great, easy to use. Great selection of books many free. Wish I could use the volume key to turn pages. Easy downloads. Great product.

Shellie Lamica

My go to every time my phone is on. I love this app. Easy to find books that I love using the categories, suggestions, and the search engine. Great interface. Only two things I can think of that would make it better; having a friend's tab so you can easily share books with your friends ( a book club section if you will), and the option to have books read outload.

Mischa C

Works well Sometimes tough to travel thru menus, but that may be Android rather than nook. Excellent range of books available.

Gabe Steel

Hope it sticks around With all the trouble B&N is still having, I really hope the nook store and nook app don't fall victim. It is a solid platform with a great selection and one of the only real competitors to the Amazon Kindle juggernaut. Admittedly, I use both platforms, but I relish the tjheir rivalry. I feel it keeps them more honest. If you are considering the nook app for your reading needs, it is well-designed with an effective layout and frankly superior store experience compared to Amazon.

Chad Anderson

Very disappointed with memory management - app doesn't use SD card for data storage, generally limited to 1 local periodical at a time. Substantially inferior to Zinio in this regard. It does offer Cloud storage, but that does you no good on a plane - where it would be really nice to be able to read an e-magazine, no? It's a shame because the display interface is superior, but I find myself hardly using Nook much due to its piggy use of phone memory

Brenda Barnett

Do not like update Older books not accessible unless I have the credit card info. I have changed cards 4 times since I have been buying nook books for years. I also like to re-read my books. Also book downloaded to one profile do not appear in the other profile.

Dana Moreno

What happened? I just bought a book and it won't open! It won't finish downloading even after an hour when it tries to open there's an error and starts trying to unsuccessfully download again!

MK Buike

With this latest update (6/2) all but one of the library of books I have purchased has DISAPPEARED! Where did my books go? Not in archive. Previous to this update, I'd give it a 4 star. UPDATE: Appreciate the quick response from the team but the suggestion was something I'd already done, to no avail. But it shows they are responsive and working on it. UPDATE # 2 Signing out and signing back in to the app on my phone did the trick! All my archived books are back. Thanks for the help! Changing my rating back to 5 stars.

Rachael Harrison

I love my Nook! I have had a Nook for about 6 years now and use it all the time. It is so versital, I have a Nook HD and use it as a reader, a tablet, and to play games. It's easy to pack for vacation, allowing me to read, check email, and display patterns for crafts too. So much easier than trying to pack several books or be lacking something to do on the road.

First Last

No longer works properly When trying to purchase any items the app says 'processing' and at some point the item might get purchases and might show up in your library. *IF* it shows up, good luck getting it to download, it will just sit there claiming to download, but the app makes zero effort to connect to the internet and download the item. No help from customer service on this issue.

Ryan Hogan

New update sucks! The new update apparently added a better book layout, but from my experience it's a worse layout. The new update added to many spaces in between each paragraph which does not help with fluid reading. Also the settings layout used to be simplistic but now it's overwhelming. The only thing I hope is that they undo this update.

William Newman

Good e-reader Actually I never liked my original Nook. It was too limited, sort of like the Kindel. Instead I use a Samsung GT-N5110 with Nook, Kindel and other readers installed. I have over 300 bo8ks, plus my email and other apps installed. It's a matter of convenience.

Yvette Cabaleiro

Still love it but right now im having a problem with a preordered e-book not showing up in my library today.

Eric Hanson

Update: Problems with accessing library were resolved by deleting the app, re-installing, and signing in again. (See the developer's note below.) Still not sure why some books have odd formatting. This app has gone from the best to utterly useless in one update -- I don't think I've seen a shift this dramatic. Can't find /access any books that weren't download after the update. And when I did purchase a book, the formatting (margins etc) was bizarre.

Rebecca M

It's not quite as nice as a nook, but it's extremely convenient. I preferred am older edition. However, I do think they've made it more functional than the version which replaced my favorite. I will say that I wish I could make notes on previously highlighted text. Nothing will ever beat print.

A Google User

Update Found if I log out and log in I have to download whole library AGAIN. Other bad thing now is if android not connected online then no covers. That's dumb. All other book readers allow covers if not online like on a plane. Sucks. Why will the cover images not stay if offline? Insane they do when you use a regular Nook so why can't the same app do so as well. You are making money off the content not the hardware/software. Should also allow books to be stored on SD card.

Daniel Growney

Getting worse Getting worse with each new upgrade. I just want to read. It wants to sync even when there's no Internet connection. Sync gets slower and slower with each auto update. Getting harder to use and slower. Now sometimes locks up so I have to kill program or reboot phone. It used to go right to the last open book. Now has to wait until library synchronizes just to open my present book.

Stephen Codling

Does what it's supposed to... ...most of the time. Occasionally it opens slow. If I'm not already on wifi when I open it my phone's wifi scanner interferes with the program at first, but I've gotten used to it at this point. Overall, fairly pleased and would recommend.

Thomas Hawley

LOVE IT!! I'm a 48 state o-t-r truck driver and this is my library on the road. Aside from very minor spacing issues and word run-on's (which don't bother me and are really rather rare), this app gets it right. Great job, thanks!

Patsy McCullough

Love it! I love my nook for its ease of use & its reliability. It has traveled with me to many places in the world & rarely has let me down!

Eddie Cuevas

I'm not super tech savvy. I gave 3 stars, but realize there may be cool features I'm blind to because I'm not someone with time to play around with my phone.

Mandy Olson

I have always loved my nook from the moment I opened the box. I carried it with me everywhere! I was devastated when someone knocked it off a table and broke it. I had just purchased several new books and was so sad that I couldn't read them. That was almost a year ago. Last week I bought a new phone and was over the moon ecstatic to be able to load the nook app and have access to all my precious stories. LOVE IT!

Mary Harris

I don't go anywhere without my nook. I grew up with no TV and reading was always very strongly encouraged. Now I have a whole library of my own and haven't run out of books yet. It's awesome! Thank you!!!

Cassandra Perez

Great app! This app is awesome!Very easy to use and navigate, and I love that the library syncs with everything on your personal tablet so it's easily accessible.Highly recommend!

Katerina Fuller

6 years! I've been a Nook fan for over 6 years! I've had every e-ink device they've made. I use them so much they either wear out, have a factory issue and it gets replaced, or me or my kids destroy it somehow. It is my most favorite item besides my family and goes every where with me while I also have the app on all my devices. B&N offers amazing support. I love my Nook!!

Marty Cook

Great app I wish I could 'Archive' from the app but, otherwise, fabulously useful and convenient - and very user-friendly.

delmin delarosa

Still the best. I've used it on almost all of my deployments. It's helped me keep my mind distracted when back on the fob. An now that I'm home for good I have it on everyone of my devices. You don't know how much you've helped me along the yrs. I have my ten year old hooked, and it's kept our relationship steady as well because we read the same books gives us things to talk about. ??? thank you so much. I've rated this 5 every year since you've made the app and still going.

James Bazhaw

New Update today, when it finished the books that I had in My Files only about half I could see any more, I checked from my computer and they are there however nook only see's part of them. I hate it when they think they have a wonderful idea to change things and when they do it screws up the parts that are working. It opened my current read to a book that I have not looked at in 6 months, I went to look for the book I was reading and it is no longer showing in my files. But it is there.. WAY TO GO once again, I keep thinking I should have just stuck with the Amazon reader and buy my books from them. Contacted what poses for Customer Service got an email said they would be in touch, finally got onto the live chat and OMG it was like talking to a wall.

Janice Kirk

Best reading app I have used Nook since it first came out. I actually had to wait for it to be released. Now that my eyes are failing, I can enlarge the text so I can read comfortably. Thanks B&B for a great product.

Kay Robbins

Convenient and thorough Effective and convenient process to keep informed about the latest publications. I enjoy notices about upcoming new releases.

Briget Phillips

Love it Due to medical issues, I can only read ebooks, much to my dismay. However, I am incredibly happy that these options are available. I would hate not being able to get into a good book. Nook, is as of right now my definate favorite, for several reasons, including ease of adjustment to brightness and line spacing.


Great app Helps feed my addiction to books without the clutter. Love this app

Sharon Duncan

Constant sync loop ate ALL my data! The update cost me half my billing cycle 's data because it was stuck in a constant sync loop. To my shock, I've used all my data just as I left for vacation because of this one app. I tried force stopping, but it apparently resumed when I opened it later to read. This app has been DELETED, even though I used it a lot. Thanks a lot. Now I can spend $15 to upgrade my data for the rest of the cycle (6 more days) or deal with waiting forever for anything to load.

Alicia beck

Awesome on my Android It's easy to manage the content in my library I would recommend downloading it to a phone less bulkier than carrying two devices that both have the same book on it.

Jennifer Garza

Nook on my Note 5 I love it!! I'm very happy that I can read all my ebooks on my cell as well as my tablets and of course my actual Nook. It's so easy for me to stay current on all the series in my favorite genres but I swear with all the books I keep adding to my list, I will never catch up! Lol! I love it and recommend this app to everyone... Even if you are not a huge reader there are always kids books and magazines of all types. Get it! You won't regret it. Also, Barnes and Noble has lots of discounted books!

T. Grant Freeman

Latest update is deadly No longer allows me access to my library, stuck in a constant sync loop that will not end!!!

Kyle Rosemore

Terrible update Latest update makes books unreadable on mobile devices by adding enormous, pointless margins to everything. Fully half my screen is wasted on white space, with a narrow column of text in the middle. Whoever put this update through should be fired.

Jane Cala

Nook Reading app. Love reading on my tablet. The backlight and ability to change text size really help these old tired eyes. And you can get all the books you want!

Linda Alexander

Interface and glitches Color for background screen no longer works with the update. There are frequent page turning glitches. Occasionally, a book will not load unless the app is opened and closed a couple of times. I am not real excited about how navigating searches is set up. The search screen is geared more towards marketing over being user friendly and ironically does not encourage me to buy more based on its 'influence and suggestions' - free serial reads are nice but again, a pain to reopen and download.

A Google User

Tracy My major problem with this app is when ever I search for Black Authors or Ebony Romance only thing comes up is erotica. There is no list of Titles or Authors. This is a major let down. I would love to give this app 5 stars because I'm an Avid Reader. Beverly Jenkins and Sandra Brown are two of my favorite writer. John Stanford as well. So if it's not to much trouble can you fix this oversite!

Holly Ponciano

Even with a few bumps, still love it! I couldn't live without my nook books!

Nikki Jewart

Convenient and User Friendly Love this "mini version" of my Nook that I usually keep at home. I no longer have to wish I would have brought my Nook along with me when I am not at home and have some down time. All I have to do is pull out my phone, open this app, and my library is right there for me. Downloading is quick and easy. So far haven't had any issues with crashing or major battery drain. Highly recommend!!

Christina Lynn

Almost perfect I love this app - very easy to use, books download quickly, etc. Two things bother me. 1) Bookshelves on your Nook and the app don't sync! It drives me crazy and I don't understand why they haven't fixed this issue. 2) Whispersync, or whatever it's called, doesn't always work, so I find myself having to search for my place pretty often, because I go back and forth between my Nook and the app a lot. But all in all, it's a great app.

Eric Paterson

Love this app!! The Nook app is the best app out there bar none for wasting a bunch of time on a Saturday afternoon. it's just as good as the original Nook but you never have to use another device. It's easy to search easy to set easy to use.

Meaghan Carlisle

Love I use my nook app all the time and I love that I can access from any device. I have anxiety and reading is my calming point so I love being able to have my nook books (say that 5 times fast) wherever I am and regardless if I have my phone , computer, nook tablet or all 3! I love how my phone app syncs with my nook or computer. Love the new app with the shelves so I can keep all my books organized by series.

Brenda Rodriguez

Love It! Easy to use & I love how it jumps to ur last page read on the last device used. Only negative is on latest downloads, sometimes they are a little hard to find if you open and then decide to go with something else. They used to have a bright New sticker on the bookcover. I'd be lost without my Nook aps!

Frank ADignorantium

A Good eReader app with versatility. First Kindle. Now nook. You can no longer export books purchased from nook to read on other devices unless you have the nook app installed on that device. Pardon me, but if I pay for something, it should be mine to use it in any (legal) way I wish. Of course, I could go through the illegal process of removing DRM but I'm not willing to go that far when there are other vendors.

priscilla hyatt

Long time user I read online every day. This is my favorite reading app. One reason is because the archive feature, it allows you to put all your read books in an easy to reach place so that you can go back and easily find the name and author of that book you loved so you can see if they have written anything else.

Lizann Smith

Just wonderful! I've had Nook since it came out. I bought one of the first touch screen models and I still have it though it mostly read on my phones app. I absolutely love to read and I'm one of those readers who loves to reread her books over and over. The nook allows me to have hundreds of books without taking up all that shelf space. My husband loves not having to trip over stacks of books in our bedroom. And I love being able to have all my favorite books at my finger tips. Makes layovers at the airport bearable! ❤

Trudy Schwartz-Burrill

well needed upgrade facelift?!?? I somehow lost all my books on my phone. All the other devices are fine. I don't know how to fix this. I use a password protected going program its in all other devices. It's making me nutty. NOW MY BOOKS ARE GONE ON ON THIS DEVICE ALSO, NOW!!! I TOOK AWAY TWO STARS, I WILL RETURN THEM WHEN YOU MAKE IT CLEAR HOW WE MIGHT DO THIS AND HOW TO CLEARLY FIX IT. CURRENTLY THERE SEEMS TO BE NO WAY TO GET THE BOOKS I OWN BACK.

Kevin Passarelli

An OK Reader. Good, but not great reader. The inability to save publications to an SD drive on a tablet mean you will be spending a fair amount of time archiving last month's issues. This app will easily fill up the remaining space on a 16g tablet. Adding the ability to store books and perioticals onthe SD card would make this much better.

Chris Mound

Good App I like the variety to choose from when looking for a book. I also like that I can try a sample of the book before deciding to buy. The only downfall I have found at this time is the highlighting features. It can be a bit challenging to select & highlight exactly what I want. Also, for someone like me who is colorblind the yellow/green is hard for me to see the difference. I should be able to choose the highlighter colors of my choosing.

Not happy I hate this new updated version. I wish I could go back to the old version. Biggest dissappointment is the new look when reading. It used to have that line down the middle to seperate the pages, it looked like an actual book was open. Now its just a flat page and it looks horrible. When I used to open my nook app it went right to my books. Now when I open it I have to search and it looks like a web page, awful. I dont know who thought this was better, it stinks. Is there any way to uninstall the update? I hate reading on it now.

Moraima Diaz

I used to have a Nook so my account and most of my books are through Barnes & Noble, it's great to have it now on my Nexus and still be able to access it all. Update: I still think the mobile app is great, I love having the option to archive the read books. What really bothers me is that there is no way to read in my computer, they got rid of the Nook for Web and it is the worst thing they have done in my opinion. Now I just read free Friday selections or Serial reads, when it comes to buying books I use other platforms now.

Almost perfect! I love my nook! It's portable, when I'm done with one book I have my entire with me so I can pick out what I want to read next. The only thing I would change is on the normal nook paperwhite, the books don't download in series order.

Colin B.

It's nice but... I think it would be a bit more efficient and more useful to have a button that takes you directly back to your library or the home menu. I say this because I often find myself browsing through the shop looking at new books I'd be interested in purchasing. Next thing I know, I have looked at over 20 or 30 books and instead of being able to go back to the main menu or my library instantly I have to TEDIOUSLY press the back button 20 or 30 times before I can even access my main menu in the nook space. Fix it!

Josette Valtierra

Nook app is great! It is awesome. My only issue may have nothing to do with app but my WiFi. A few times the processing time has been really long and there's no way to cancel the process to restart it. My only complaint. Love that it keeps my place when I forget to bookmark it. Great app!!!

This app is really useful for reading on the go. I just adore the app. If I have to stay at school late and I don't have my nook I can read off of the nook app to pass the time. I love this app. It also does not use a lot of battery or space on your phone and is overall awesome for e-reading

No integrity As a long-time, loyal customer, Nook's settlement scam made me severely disappointed. I called customer service several times with my settlement number, and they repeatedly gave me false information. Don't 'credit' my account, get me to spend fake settlement money, then completely take it back.

I love my Nook! I have had a Nook for about 6 years now and use it all the time. It is so versital, I have a Nook HD and use it as a reader, a tablet, and to play games. It's easy to pack for vacation, allowing me to read, check email, and display patterns for crafts too. So much easier than trying to pack several books or be lacking something to do on the road.

Love Nook I previously have just owned Nook tablets. I was nervous about getting a regular Samsung without the Nook software overlay since that's what I primarily used my tablet for. However my concerns were empty. The app is wonderful and rather easier to use in many ways.

Couldn't live without I have absolutely no complaints about the Nook App. It's fantastic. I am obsessed with reading. I am able to read any where and time with this app when I forget my actual Nook. I don't know what I would do without this. It keeps me entertained and allows me to travel the worlds of books :-)

Sad we lost our free nook book Friday? Update: still no fbf ??? And Id like to thank you for the ability to use talkback but the auto read goes off when the screen times out on my Note 4. I then have to restart the app. Can you fix this, please? Ty......still have this issue.

Karen Evans

Not impressed! I located it on a Chromebook, and clicked to install it, and where was it installed??? On my phone. Apparently Nook readers don't work on Chromebooks, however it said it was compatible with all my devices. I give it 2 stars, but honestly it's a minus in my mind. I just don't want to click that I "hate it"-- that's inappropriate behavior.

Annoying pop up If I don't have the app open I will receive a pop up alert telling me I have "already purchased this item. Check library" as if I am still trying to buy something and this will occur, literally, every 15 minutes or so if I am using anything other than this app and I cannot get it to stop and now I cannot read anything as the stories are distorted and twisted???????

The Great Reckoning Armande takes over the police Academy to weed out the corruption and evil people and ends up having to solve a murder mystery of a very bad man. Using the help of 4 cadets and the people from the village to help, was great interaction of all the characters. I loved it.

Wishlist I just added many books to my "wishlist". I then went to try and find my wishlist and it's no where to be found!! It's just not there!! Am I doing something wrong here? I've looked in every possible section I could. Soo frustrating. I'm about to just delete it

Very good app... one drawback This app is very nice. I love the way you can change the back ground for night reading so the screen brightness won't bother your eyes. I can change font size of small print. The draw back so far: it is difficult to read captions. Some books have captions or illustrations to explain in greater detail an aspect of a topic. The wording within the caption, labeling within an illustration or charts are usually to small to read. There's also no way, that I know of, to enlarge the captions to read it's contents.


Okay app I have both nook and kindle apps for reading books. I prefer the kindle. I love to read at night and use the night (black) screen. Black is easier on my eyes at nite and doesn't disturb my husband if I am reading in bed. There are only 3 highlight colors with the nook app none of which show up on the black screen. Very frustrating when you want to highlight information but none of the colors appear. You have to switch to a different color background to have this function visible.

Having issues with English dictionary What's going on with the English dictionary? I can't get it to download??? Been trying for over two weeks now. I even deleted the app and reinstalled it. Help, please! TY App is awesome other than this!

Ann Cooper

Good app I read a lot. Until recently I haven't been using Nook even tho nook was my 1st ereader. The app was just too buggy. Seems B&N has finally developed a easy to use app. Now if they don't "improve" it into unuseability again.

Tina Hill

Used to be good The latest upgrade makes it difficult to get back to you library. Unable to see my downloads, I can only do searches. Very frustrating.

I have had this app for YEARS. I love it. I can read anywhere, waiting in line at the grocery store, at the Dr office, at the pharmacy. It makes waiting bearable. I did recently uninstall it, then reinstall it because an update added a horror of a robotic voice that could not be silenced. Thank you to the technician who made that suggestion when I called nook!

Kim Southard

Not always easy to navigate Earlier versions of this app were much easier to navigate, especially at the end of a book. Now it's too cluttered and items like the archive are buried.

Excellent...for serial reader's like myself I have well over 3,000 Nook books, almost as many as I have in my home library. (Many are duplicates) so I can continue what I'm reading on my Nook HD or my Galaxy Tab A, and my phone with the Nook app. I will never stop buying hardcover books (or the occasional paperback), but when traveling I don't have to worry about the added weight.

Andrea Mendoza

In love Never thought that NOOK had an app. I had my NOOK tablet for 2 years and it became an inconvenience when carrying it around. It was bulky and I couldn't really hide anywhere. Found out I can use my phone through the app! Completely surprise and of course completely oblivious. I'm in love with convenience and I can lose myself in my stories anywhere :)

Zannie McRae

The NOOK application is an excellent reading program. The reading experience is on par with the NOOK device. I really like the feature of adding my personal files to the library. The only short comings I have encountered is the viewing of PDF files, the PDF files does not scale well when viewing PDF files. Also the fact not all games are able to run under Android devices.

Hard to find library Pain to use .. bought two books and will never buy another one. Will find different way to read books. Had to flip through the entire book to end to slide my finger left to right to get library option .... The whole book!!! If you doing Durning a read ,it just turns the page back..... Never again

Brady O'Callaghan

Great app with some annoying quirks Sometimes does weird things with text spacing, and sends me all kinds of notifications I don't care about. Other than that, though, a really nice app for reading on the go

Michael Brennan-White

Does what I expect from reader app Long time nook user but now using on my phone. App works well but I have a few thoughts. Why don't b&n coupons and membership discounts work for e-books. Adding a theme like the nighttime theme in Google play would be great. B&n missed the boat by not having a subscription service like scribd and Amazon.

Julie Davis

TAKES UP WAY TO MUCH SPACE!! Best reading App! Just wish there was a way to make the lending a little longer & it didn't take up soooo much space!!

Terry Sanders

Wrong things. I got different boo then i paid I paid for a jewlery book on harringbone, however that is not what i got. I emailed nook but no one will return my email.

Nicolette Reames

Good app, with only minor glitching. Overall it's a very good app for books, magazines etc. There is formating issues occasionally with spacing and word size. It doesn't always register you have a book so you sometimes end up buying copies of the same book. Some of the library and organizational aspects are a little clunky.

Arabelle Minard-Le

Overall Great It is really handy to have my books on my phone! The only critique I have is some books skip pages & you might not realize it right away. You can usually get around it by telling it to go to a page number a few pages ahead of the skip (manually enter a page number) & then thumbing backwards. It doesn't happen really often though, so it's worth the inconvenience.

Jena Stowell

Great app I'm having some difficulties reading the book but other than that this is a great app. You will get your 5 Stars when your book starts repeating itself over and over again and I have to log out and then log in to clear the problem.
