When is the Nook app store supposed to be coming out?

I heard that Barnes&Noble was going to come out with an app store for the NOOK color. Is that true and if so does anyone know when that's going to come out?

B&N stated that an app store would be out by the end of the first quarter. While many of us are hoping for it sooner, realistically that means late March.

Or early April. Often these kinds of dates become March 35th

Re: When is the Nook app store supposed to be coming out?

I'm waiting for the store before I decide if I need to root the thing.  I don't play games much but I could use some serious apps for daily use.  That contacts app on the nook is about useless in it's functions.  It's a drag to have the power in your hand and nothing to put on it.  Not to mention I want this auto updates turned off....I don't like my products updated without my permission.

Re: When is the Nook app store supposed to be coming out?

I viewed some of the youtube videos about rooting and it was awesome. I know NC is a reader but it looks like B&N would want its product to be all it can be. It would also make it more competitive in the market. I love my NC and, I am happy like it is BUT it could be so much more powerful. I don't care much about the 3g. But I have a droid phone and would love to have some of those apps. We could have the best of both worlds.

I would love to have an interactive date book, a page to take notes on or a teachers dream- a planning page!

Re: When is the Nook app store supposed to be coming out?

It's April 20th and NO update. :smileysad: What I'm wondering is why there has not been some sort of announcement of the release date on the apps. Most people that have purchased the NC did so with the promise that the App Market would be available in the near future. At this point I'd just be happy with some type of calendar or planner feature. I already bring it with me everywhere, I don't want to also have to tote around a planner to keep my daily functions in line. You'd think it'd be a rather easy fix......guess not because I'm still waiting. :smileysad: Hurry up B&N!!

I asked when my sister bought her NC last week that it was supposed to open at the end of this month by the BN employee.

Re: When is the Nook app store supposed to be coming out?

Funny, that's what my salesperson said in March. "It's supposed to be up by the 1st week of April." Oh well, I can wait. For now I'm running either Honeycomb or CM7 depending on my mood.

Re: When is the Nook app store supposed to be coming out?

I talked to someone at the barnesnoble store. She said it will come out from this week to the beginning of May. They still don't have a specific date.
