NOOK app for Android tablets

I see a lot of notes about how poorly the NOOK for IPad app is, does anyone use it successfully for the Android tablets? (XOOM, Galaxy... I'm looking at the soon to be released HTC Flyer and just wondering.

Re: NOOK app for Android tablets

I recently purchased a Viewsonic gTablet that uses Android 2.2.  I have installed the Nook_2.4.apk app.  I downloaded a single book, and after a quick test, it appears to

work fine.  It even rotates the screen when I rotate the tablet.

I use an Archos 70 tablet, and am more or less satisfied (I have a backflip android phone, an eink Nook and the tablet).

The app can be uninstalled.  I just did.  And then I reinstalled it.

Re: NOOK app for Android tablets

We just got the new HTC Evo View and the app seems to work fine on it.  The only issue I have found so far is that if I am reading a book, and I have to leave it for a time the app does not appear to let the View go into sleep mode after the designated amount of time so it continues to use up the battery.  I just have to remember to get out of the book before I set the View down.
