Send To Nook functionality

Does anyone know if there could be a browser extension to transfer a web article to your Nook the way you can to another e-reader device?

 

Is this functionality that needs to be built into the Nook?  Plans??

What exactly are you trying to do?  Send a link?

Re: Send To Nook functionality

There are a few add-on programs in Chrome/Firefox that will send a web page to a Kindle to read later.  I currently use a program that sets any article into a clean screen to mimic an ePub look, however, being able to send articles to an eReader for reading at lunch would be helpful to me.

 

These programs send the articles to the Kindle with their <username>@free.kindle.com e-mail address they give you when you register your device.

 

I am really interested in buying the new Nook but this functionality might push me to the other option.

I've never heard of a program that does that for the Nook.  Maybe someone else has.

Seems like this would be a natural feature to offer in the (mysterious, ill-defined) MyNook.com site. Mail something to your (cloud) account that shows up in your library when you sync.

This is a kindle feature.  There's nothing like it currently for the nook.

Re: Send To Nook functionality

I am looking for the same.  I ran into this and was hoping there was a comparable Nook extension.

Re: Send To Nook functionality

I have to agree that the ability to send the text of a webpage directly to the Nook is an obvious feature that i would just expect to be available in a Firefox addon. I knew that the Kindle had this functionality and just assumed that it was obvious enough that the Nook would as well.

The Nook is a grat reading device, but a horrible browsing device, so the ability to browse on the desktop but read on the Nook is natural. I cannot believe that this feature does not exist.

Re: Send To Nook functionality

I use Springpad.  You can clip to it.  Your nook downloads new content when you have wifi access so it available when you are off line.

I use chrome to browse.  The is an extension that adds springpad to the right click menu.  I hi-lite to text to clip and right click.  Bingo!  done.  Lots of other good stuff too.

If your Nook is rooted, Bookbox would be a good option(I did not tested it yet).

 

On chrome browser you can install extension https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/bookbox-sender/ljecpghbiknnnmbcjninnhccboafbbnp.

You have to install Bookboa app https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.mobiucare.bookbox

 

After you can send a web article by clicking Bookbox button on Chrome browser.

 

Good luck.
