I have had my Nook Color since they came out and have purchased apps before with no problem However, I purchased an app this weekend and could not ever get it to install. It would act like it was downloading and installing but then at the end would go back to the icon having a "download" bar on it. I tried archiving and redownloading but nothing works. I contacted support and the gentleman replicated my situation and said he couldn't get the game ot work either and refunded my money. I didn't think much of it and just assumed it was a glitch with the game. However, I just purchased another app (Pocket Ants) and now it is doing the same thing. It must be a problem with my Nook or the software. Has anyone else encountered this or have any suggestions? I want to be able to purchase apps and play them.

On the Nook Tablet forum one user found a nifty solution. It's worked for me too.
Sometimes there isn't enough free memory space available to install the app.
Archive the apps that you aren't using. And then try and install.
Please keep in mind that there are some apps that will use up 100Mb to 200MB of memory. Sometimes they download data after words. So you might think you just have just 25 apps and that should not use up memory. But it's always a good idea to archive some and then restart your Nook and then try the install of the new apps.
