I don't have the color Nook. Will you be making these apps for the plain jane Nook?

You can find it on the App Store.  On the nook hit Store, then search, then click apps, then games.

Both these are listed on the first page.  $4.99 each.

When will there be more games for the Nook WiFi?  Iwould love the Nook Color, but can't justify the expense when the original was so good.  But I would sure love more games.

can you use the apps on a computer or just on the nook? Would love to get the apps if you can use them on computers.

I agree all they talk about is the Nook color but nothing for the nook WI if its great how can you go buy another for twice the price. I would like to get apps for it too.

yes, what about those of us that bought the nook 1 because we wanted the e-ink reader.  Can we please have a few new apps.  I would really love pandora, even if only with wifi

More apps for WiFi  !!!   It's nice to take a small break from reading and then get back into the story!   Even just 2 or 3 more choices would be soooo appreciated !

How about having some free items

I would love the games for Nook 1!  Even in black and white it would be fun.  Don't forget about us!  We bought the Nook first.

Is there a way to suggest some spps for the NOOKcolor?  I would dearly love the Weight Watchers' mobile app!

i agree with tammyne, there are a lot of games that could be utilized on the regular nook that arent. why this is is beyond me. the support for the regular nook is less than acceptable at this point. it really has not been out that long either, and the cost to upgrade is not worth it esp with the 8 hr battery life.

Ha! I downloaded both of these and love them both!
