Re: Got update, but Google play apps wont install

I'm wondering if the sudden onslaught of Nook HD owners is messing up the servers.

I hope thats it and not something wrong with the update, because i really hate having to reset my nooks.

Re: Got update, but Google play apps wont install

I side loaded the update in my HD+ early afternoon and got a message regarding some of my HD apps that have Google counteparts. The message asked if I want to install the Google version. I clicked yes and they installed (Dropbox was one of them) they installed and work just fine. The Nook apps they replaced are gone.I also went to the RoboForm website and downloaded RoboForm (I have it on my phone and windows machine) installed and runs like a charm. 

 

This is the best update BN has pushed out since I got my first Nook color!

 

Also, the screen wqorks much smoother than before the update.

Fixed the Google Play issue, I had to create a new gmail account and not use my old one. Now its working for downloading apps.
