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.

Re: animated page turning

Yeah. The page just kind of "slides" off the screen, and the next "slides" onto the screen. Kind of .. lame..?

This is how it's supposed to work. It's very subtle. There are some other threads disscussing this already. This is one of them:

Re: animated page turning

Why bother? to offer it? If one expected something like a ipad effect its most likly a copyright thing Apple owns.

I didn't notice it at first either. I had to do a search myself and then found out it was acutally working, just very subtle. I agree with the post above though that it probably eats more battery. Think of how much more battery it would drain if it were some super fancy page turn! I actually think the slide is pretty nice the way it is..very simple and gets the job done.

I wasn't the one who started this thread, nor was I asking any questions about the effect. I was simply stating that the "animation" is not something I would call an actual animation. But, ah, thanks for the tips on how to use a forum...

Re: animated page turning

Couldn't they have simulated real page turning like it's done in the NOOK app? This feature is lame.

Re: animated page turning

Yeah, when you title something "animation" then "subtlety" is not the first word that comes to mind. But thanks for the dissembling on an underwhelming "feature."

Re: animated page turning

I don't think iPad has a lock on that type of (desired) page turning effect as the one available with CM7 (Android 2.3) that I use on my sd card looks "real" and works just fine.

 

I have yet to hear anything about Apple suing Google over this and we all know how litigious Apple is!

Re: animated page turning

My referral here is to the Nook Ap...the Kindle ap does not do the same type of curled page animation.

My comment wasn't meant to belittle you or your response in any way. My apologies if it came across as such. It was actually directed towards the original poster.
