Re: What's todays freebie

My "spotlight" pages are down on the Shop Home right now, but it's just as well cuz I have less than no interest in that (or in getting a billion recommendations based on a book I only got because it was free).  

 

UPDATE: my Shop Home was down 10 minutes ago, now it's back up with the freebie listed. It just listed on Facebook too. I suspect they just took it down for a few minutes to add the new content and I happened to log in during those minutes!

Re: What's todays freebie

The free Friday book has never appeared on my NC shop home page, and it isn't there now. I wonder, under which heading do you see it? I know how to look up the free book and get it, but I just don't see it anywhere on the shop home page.

Thanks for the screenshot. I have NEVER seen that screen, and I always check throughout the day on Friday. I wonder why this is. Does everyone else have this screen appear on Fridays? Am I the only one without it?

You can scroll the top part of the shop screen to the right to see all of the various offers.  This isn't obvious from just looking at it!

Go to "Shop" using the toolbar and hit Browse, then select "Return to Shop Home."  Swipe across the top half of the screen and you'll get multiple different screens to look at (Books You'll Love, Spotlight Author, and on Fridays: Free Fridays). Mine started having it about 3 weeks ago.

I was never notified on my NC of the free Friday offer until the recent update and assumed it was one of the "bugs" fixed. I now get the offer on my shop page also. Mine was on page one.

I, too, have never had an announcement for a free friday choice on my NC. I always try to come here. Seems more reliable this way.

I come to the unbound blog from my laptop. Never had the free book appear on my NC before..  Maybe since the update it has changed! I haven't thought of checking it. Will check next Friday! :smileyhappy:

You can take a screenshot by pressing the home button and vol down button at the same time. You will get a message a few seconds afterwards saying that it has saved it.

Hold down the home button and then press the volume - button quickly.  If you don't press it quickly, the volume indicator will show up in your screeshot.  Wait a second or two and you'll see a camera appear in your notification area letting you know that it was done.  You'll find them in their own screenshots folder.

Re: What's todays freebie

Thank you both for that.  But how positively counterintuitive.
