Free app fridays-office pro 7

It looks as if BandN is starting a free app fridays. In apps and store it says free app fridays and the first app is officesuite pro 7.  This is a 15 dollar app, so maybe some new strategies are starting to roll out.  Just thought I would let the board know.

They haven't said anything at the store level about this, not that that's an indication either way really.

Thanks for the heads up FT, I'll text my ASM about it.  She's one of the few that make the store run.

Imagineyes, I think what happened is that they ran it on Wed by mistake. It's probably meant to start this Friday.

 

It's certainly an interesting idea.

 

FlyingTostr - thanks for the confirmation.

Re: Free app fridays-officesuite pro 7

Here is the link. 

 

http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/officesuite-professional-7-mobisystems/1114768241?ean=2940043856395

 

It says free, but when I click the "download now" I get a message that I will be charged 14.99 plus applicable taxes.  So I didn't complete checkout.  This is on my PC, so maybe I need to use the NOOK Shop on my NC? 

 

I don't have wi-fi at home so I buy apps and books from my PC and just sync them to the NC when I am out and about, we'll see tomorrow.

We may need to wait for the blog post with the free friday book later today to see the price change on the app.

Re: Free app fridays-officesuite pro 7

GDJ, I just followed your link and was able to download the app for free. I have an NC. What device do you have? Maybe it's not available for other Nooks. Or they just activated the free offer.

 

If it is truly free and available for the HD+, I just may go get myself one. I was ready to get one around Xmas until someone posted that QuickOffice Pro, which I have for my NC, was not available for the HD+, and I didn't feel like paying $15 for an equivalent app (Officesuite pro 7) that would work on th HD+. So I'd be interested if hearing from an HD+ owner if this free app offer works for them.

It's free now I was just able to download it to both of my devices right from the device itself.

Re: Free app fridays-officesuite pro 7

They need a better check system for version upgrades.

 

I'd paid for v6.5 in December. Attempt to download the free v7.0 just gave "you already own this item". Archive (cloud) and redownload just restored v6.5, check for updates gave "up to date".

 

To get v7.0 I had to do the drastic act of Deleting the application, the using the Free App link in the shop.

Re: Free app fridays-office pro 7

Has anyone actually got version 7.0.11 to work on their Nook? I'm asking because I just downloaded it and the app version I got is 6.5.10? I have Office Pro 7 on my android tablet and it doesn't look at all like this.

This morning I rechecked, it showed the charges as "free" during checkout.  It's now waiting for me in my Nook Library.

Re: Free app fridays-office pro 7

I downloaded what said it was 7 and it was 6.5 as well. The icon on my nook hd says OfficeSuite Professional 7 but when I open it and go to about it says 6.5 there.

I get V 6.5.1010. On the About Page.

 

This is pretty cool, I have to say. Would never have expected a $15 App to be the first app in the Free Friday Apps program.

Re: Free app fridays-office pro 7

Hi All,

 

We apologize for the confusion and we appreciate you bringing this to our attention. Version 7 will be made available next week and you can upgrade to the new version at no charge.

 

Later next week please choose "check for updates" from your NOOK app screen to get the update.

 

Hope this helps.

 

- Alex
