HD+ Library Viewing and Sorting parameters

Status: Under Review

The current sorting & send to the cloud options for viewing the HD+ library is very cumbersome.  The NC's was way better and this isn't saying much for a brand new ICS based system.


I would like to see several options added to the sort... besides single sort option of by recent, or by title , or by author consider letting the HD+ library have an option that would display the by Author by Title on separate "shelves" like it did in the Nook Color as a wee bit faster option to look up a book.  The best would be to have an option to view by title or author by an alphabetic list that would take you to the items that start with that "letter". 


I would also like to be to view the library without the in the cloud items showing.. The options on the library viewing has look at archive ... have the sent to cloud only display on the archive screen.  Also on the HD+ since the 2.0.5 update I can go to manage my archived items but "redownloading to the device" is no longer an option!!!  I have to either unarchive the book via my old NookColor and/or log into my account via a PC and unarchive it so I can get an archived item back on my Device.. Please fix this!!

The sorting feature is very hit or miss. When adding content to a shelf, it is non-existant. Even getting to the B's can mean scrolling through a few hundred books to get there. There is no way to archive books on the device, so one has to scroll through every book in the cloud and on the device with no way to move those cloud books out of the way. Since we can't shelve books from a search, once again, forced to wade through all those books to find what we want to shelve with no way to sort them into a list that might be more accessable. (like moving the z's the front of the list so I don't have to scroll through 2500 books to get to the z's!)


So I went to the website and spent TEN hours archiving 2300 books ONE at a time, in order to clean up the clutter on my device. Really? Even that had to be difficult?


This really needs to be dealt with.

There has got to be a better way to categorize , search, and shelve the library. Like you I had to go through the entirelibrary onebook at a time. The sorting was absolutely useless to narrow the task
