My pulse app is now the gray book cover.  I hate it that way!  I can't figure out how to get it back to the correct app icon.  Also, the Nook friends is not working completely.  Other than that, all is well for me so far


I too have been having problems with Pulse, but not the icon with the app itself when trying to sign in to facebook and set permissions for the app it doesn't allow me to "Allow" to see my feeds within the app..... Anyone else having this problem?? 

 


 

 

Yes. On Pulse, I can't connect to Facebook (Twitter works fine). Others have had this problem as well, and have contacted B&N or the developer about it.. I guess they're "working on a fix".

 

I have the same problem with the app icons as well. I have yet to restart or anything, but the grey covers keep switching to different apps. First it was Fliq Cal, then Angry Birds, then Fliq Tasks. Meh.

 

Also, before the update, I DL'd a boxed set of a book series, and when I clicked on the little "currently reading" icon at the bottom, or the "Keep Reading: ... " at the top, I'd get an error (I forget what it said exactly) and the book wouldn't open; I'd have to use the actual book icon on my home screen to open the book. NOW, the buttons work, but they almost always don't save to the last page I was at; it just brings me to the cover page and I have to search to find the last page I was on. Frustrating!

Yikes.  I am definately going to stay rooted.  I have no problems at all and all those apps work fine for me.  Hopefully they will fix all this soon.

I don't know if it would be considered a bug, but I noticed that when viewing people's profiles, the avatar image is distorted. Anyone else have that problem? Also, I just tried to spell check this post & got an error message.

If you have an sd card remove it when you download and install any apps. This will probsbly fix most issues.

Re: What doesn't work (ie, bugs)

I think for an initial rollut its not bad at all.  I had to do the work around for Angry Birds. I have the disappearing icon bug but 99% of the things I do on the Color Nook work.  I know it is just a matter of time before someone has a calendar sync that works...this is a pretty big thing to launch; even after testing.  It is still the best value for a tablet around and this is just on day two!!!

Re: What doesn't work (ie, bugs)

Someone listed yesterday new features that I am not seeing....

 

 

8. The library display includes several more ways to list your titles, most importantly a small icon choice which speed things up quite a bit.

9. The book shelf menu works much better/faster.  So far I have not lost anything.

10. The Library title listing is now annotated when alphabetical, ie A-C, D-F, etc.

 

Can someone show me a screen shot that has the "small icon display" are the alphabetical annotation?

Re: What doesn't work (ie, bugs)

Just left B&N, still in parking lot having coffee with Junior. The nook tech here said to put the apps on a sd card to save your memory. I told him i thought that that would not work. He said it does and he has his on the card. Asked about the nook friends not working. He has not used it yet but it would will work better when the servers are not so busy, beta struggles with a busy server. Time will tell. Off to teach for a few hours, would love to have time to play with nook though.

Re: What doesn't work (ie, bugs)

@Jill

.8 - there was no change here; the option to sort by title, author and most recent  was present before the update. On the small icons,(the little square icon at the top right hand side of the "books" page), all 4 size options were also present prior to the update.

 

On #10, this may be new. Tap on the button "sort by Title" on the "books" Page, then tap on the icon layout button beside it. The second option down, will sort by alphabet groupings.

Re: What doesn't work (ie, bugs)

I now have the Gallery app icon permanently seated on my Daily Shelf at the bottom of the home screen and there is no way to get it off there. I've also lost the ability to slideshow my pics.

A lifelong reader, now may my life be long enough to catch up on my reading!

Me too! I have gone to the "social" settings and I've unlinked & then re-linked, I've rebooted.  I don't know what to do.

Did he say how to do it?  I haven't installed any apps yet.  Do you get a choice of where to install them when you purchase?  Do you move them after they're installed?

Re: What doesn't work (ie, bugs)

  I just relized reading your earlier post that I would have no idea how to do that. I am hoping someone steps up with the answer to that, if not I am going to call the store tomorrow.

The only problem with installing your apps on the sd card is if you sideload lots of files such as movies, pdf books, music etc etc yoi really limit yourself.......

Re: What doesn't work (ie, bugs)

Odd, desert_brat, I was able to move my app icons to the pages above the daily shelf. And my slideshow works as before.
