On Nexus 7, Nook app is broken and crashes

I got a new Nexus 7 tablet from google, and promptly downloaded the Nook app.  Unfortunately, it does not work well.  Two problems:

 

1.  I only see a portion of my library (it looks like nothing I've bought in the last 6 months or so is available.)

 

2.  When I try to seach my library, the app promptly crashes. 

 

Anybody else have any experience with this?

Yup, my behaviors are exactly the same. Wondering if there's a compatibility issue with Jelly Bean. Nook app is the first that I installed as well.

Same for me. Using the search feature promptly crashed the Nook App on my unrooted, 100% stock Nexus 7.

This *might* be related to an ongoing problem that users of other B&N devices are experiencing. It seems to have hit NST users hardest, but the Android app might be affected as well.

I am not having the same problem on a Samsung running 4.0 ICS.

Methinks this is a jellybean issue.

For problem 1, I've found that signing out and in again to my BN account sometimes fixes this problem.

Has this been resolved?  B&N Support is still saying that "it should work fine".  I don't want to buy a Nexus 7 unless I can access my Nook library.

 

Thanks,

Brett

It works fine on mine, and has since I got it a week and a half ago.  I've got the beta version installed now and that seems to work fine too (and the new font sizes in it are really nice!).

 

Go ahead and take the plunge.
