I have it as well on my NC.  I didn't try to open it, though. There's no option to delete or archive it, much like the standard apps that comes with the NOOK.

I do not know what it is, but just noticed it in my apps library.

Check the details.  Just looks like B&N is live testing again. :smileyvery-happy:

It downloaded onto my N.Color as well. I restarted my nook because it was running slowly and now the previously "blank" AMV app is now installing? What in the world could BN be live testing on my nook?

If B&N were really "live testing" on customers' devices without their knowledge and permission, wouldn't that be unethical?  Oh wait!  I forgot.  Microsoft does it, so it must be okay.  :smileyfrustrated:

I work for BN as a Nook person and this is new to me as well.  going to call store support tomorrow at work.  showed up on my tablet and am not sure what this is either but I know BN does not "test" things or automatically put apps onto customers' Nook accounts.  There is a new email app called k9 which is a free email app and very user friendly.

Re: Anyone have the app AMV just show up?

I told my Apps to sort by category. This is classified as "Entertainment".

When I got into the details, it says to contact the developer to report a problem.

There is an email address there;
noideaatall@book.com. Really. No Idea At All @ book.com. I don't trust this thing _At All_.

[ Edited ]

I had the app show up this morning. I didn't order it and  I want to get rid of it. Anyone know how?

 

Later ... I wrote to customer service about it.

{Sigh} People just dont have a sense of humor anymore. Well, a programmer did. The domain name, book.com, is owned by Barnes & Noble. Someone spotted the email in question being used in some other b&n code. If I had to guess, the "v" stands for video. (And someone made a oopsie a day or too ago.) @allycub, let us know what support says when you call.

Re: Anyone have the app AMV just show up?

I had the app show up last night.  After a painful online chat with BN tech support, who didn't believe me unitl I linked him to this community, we ended deregistering and reregistering my NC.  He was not able to explain what it was, where it came from, or why we should reregister my device if it obviously wasn't device specific.

After a wonderful chat with support on the phone (he sounded cute lol) he let me know it was a new app for magazine viewing (?) for nook color and tablet (i believe) no need to reset or any of that saved me that time task of redoing everything. I did let him know about the topic so maybe he or another will pop in and explain it better then me. Please forgive spelling mistakes I suck at typing on the keypad

To add on I contacted online support first and they wanted me to reset as well but before I did that I wanted to hear phone support say the same. Glad I wamted a second take on it.

Omg. B&N support is a nightmare. I have never ever gotten any kind of help from them when I had a problem. Once I solved the problem my self while talking to them and told the tech what to tell the next person who had that problem.

Re: Anyone have the app AMV just show up?

mine has said installing and never stopped saying installing.

 

Anyone else still have this app installing or has it completed the installation?  I have a nook color.

Mine has said installing since last night.  Has just turning the NC off completely stopped it for any of you?
