You’ve made our site more than a place to discover your next book: you’ve made it a community. But like all things internet, BN.com is growing and changing. We've said goodbye to our community message boards—but that doesn’t mean we won’t still be a place for adventurous readers to connect and discover.

Now, you can explore the most exciting new titles (and remember the classics) at the Barnes & Noble Book Blog. Check out conversations with authors like Jeff VanderMeer and Gary Shteyngart at the B&N Review, and browse write-ups of the best in literary fiction. Come to our Facebook page to weigh in on what it means to be a book nerd. Browse digital deals on the NOOK blog, tweet about books with us,or self-publish your latest novella with NOOK Press. And for those of you looking for support for your NOOK, the NOOK Support Forums will still be here.

We will continue to provide you with books that make you turn pages well past midnight, discover new worlds, and reunite with old friends. And we hope that you’ll continue to tell us how you’re doing, what you’re reading, and what books mean to you.

How to Reload Apps after reset???

Trying to get back my apps

I see the apps I purchased at my BN account.

They are no longer on my Nook Color.

I see no way in my account to get these re-downloaded, even when I click on the specific applications.

 

I hear they are there and can be re-acquired.

 

How?? - Not happening automatically

 

Thanks for help... new at this

Once you re-register your NOOK Color, go to the library and tap the sync button. Then go to the apps tab.  From there, you should see your purchased apps. Tap on each one to reinstall it.

Try going to the App shop on your NC and see if it can be restored from there.  I didn't have the problem yesterday, but when I go to one of my apps in the shop, it offers to open it.  If it can detect that it is gone from your NC, it may have a download option instead.

If the icon says "Purchased", tap the icon to open it in its own window.

Strange business with BN

When I click the sync button it just continuously revolves... nothing else

When I go to settings I see this...

  • Owner: "Unavailable"
  • Account; "Unavailable"
  • Software version: 1.2.0

I'm thinking I will skip BN altogether considering the complications... I can get lots of magazines and books from other sources and will probably find sources for apps other than at BN

 

I'm not inclined to do erase everything and do it all over again... enough is enough and since most of my stuff is working, I prefer not to screw with it anymore.
