I'm using the built-in email client on the HD+ with yahoo mail and I've found no *practical* way to either import my contact list from yahoo or even access info from the built-in contacts app (and using work-arounds like exporting my yahoo contacts to google and trying to import the data from there seem rather hacky). This severely limits the usability of email on this device. On a related note, having apps like contacts and calendar *only* sync with exchange *on a consumer device* seems like a poor product decision. My guess is that most Nook users won't be using their tablets as corporate messaging devices....
"Remove From Device" is not the same as Archive and does not serve the same function. When I wish to archive a book I want it to disappear from my active library but be recoverable later.
Having to go to the website to archive a book should not be necessary. A fully functional Nook app should allow for all library management functions, one of which is archiving. Somebody must have made a deliberate decision to not include an archive option on this device, which makes no sense at all. Do you people never, ever actually communicate with your users and ask how they use devices?
Edit: Thanks to NookGardener, I'm informed that the option is there, but hidden, accessible through the undocumented trick of holding the volume-up and pressing on the book cover simultaneously.
I seen that the Apple iPhones and iPads have these really neat apps of fun games from Disney Junior like Mickey Mouse and Sofia the First and I already know that we aren't supported for the programming that they have but it would be amazing if there was a way to make Disney Junior fun apps for the little kids on the nook too. There aren't really any shows either and I've tried multiple times on google play and no luck there either.
Maybe instead of Disney, since it's set up for iTune access only, Nook kids can have fun Nick Jr. Apps for the kids like Bubble Guppies, Paw Patrol, Wallykazam and Dora the Explorer? Or maybe something fun similar to Leap Frog Games? It would be incredible if this was at all possible and I know there are a LOT of suggestions that are probably a lot easier to work on but I'm sure there are tons of kids and parents whom have Nooks that would liek this too.
Still getting to know my new Nook HD. Made my wife her own profile, went to transfer some books to her and figured it would be so simple to just make the shelves available to her profile and that was not an option.
Might make it easier for people that share Nooks with multiple profiles. To make "Assign To Profile" an option in the shelves.
I would like to be able to FLAG the book in some way on the outside (ie "pre-order", "new", etc). Then I wouldn't have to assign a book to a "tab" as suggested above. What happens if you don't finish the book? I would like to be able to have my own custom "flags" (ie Outlook) that would be visible from my libray in any sort option and they're specific to the way I want to "categorize" my books.
I added this to another post but it was suggested it should have its "own" post...
The wife and I are new to this forum, but not to the Nook or other forums, on thing that I have noticed is that there is not date/time stamp on threads or messages. Rather it shows month or day of the week on the older posts and how may hours ago a new post was done.
Looking at older issues and getting information it is hard to see if it is a new issue or something that has been around for awhile.
How long does it take to get pictures approved for use? I can't find anywhere else to ask this and haven't found any answers in my attempts to look in different sections. I tried searching but found no definite answers.
I'm still new here so don't flame me too bad for asking this.
With several hundred books in my library, it is difficult to remember all of my purchases. Would it be possible to get a .csv or .xls file that lists the books in one's library? Such a file should show title, author, purchase date, and perhaps category.
I recently upgraded my 1st Gen Nook for a Simple Touch and I'm a bit annoyed! The Simple Touch does not have an "Unshelved" catagory! I cannot see what books I have yet to shelve. It's really annoying.
Also, I would love to have the ability to hide my archived books. They are archived for a reason. I don't need/want to see them all the time. I consider the BN website my library, and the Nook my book. I don't want to carry all my books all the time. The ability to see all the books is very frustrating and overwhelming.
Also, BN, you really need to work on your website. Books in series aren't always marked as such, I can't easily get to an entire series, and there is no easy way to add to cart or buy from searching. There is a lot of clicking involved.
Overall, I love my SimpleTouch and my Nooks because I dislike backlight when I read. I want to keep using my Nook, but I can't help but be frustrated by it. Thanks for reading!
Can BN add "lend me" information in the product details of BN.com? This would be nice to know prior to purchasing a book. Not all books have the "Lend Me" Band/Picture when searching for books on BN.com.
Spritz (http://www.spritzinc.com/) has been in the news lately. There are others that have similar takes on speed reading. I would love to see something in the smartphone/tablet/desktop apps like Spritz where you can crank it up to 500 wpm.
My gen 1 nook would allow you to save your bookmarks with an internet connection and I could pick up on the same page on my nook app and then vice versa. I upgraded to the HD+ and that functionality seems to no longer exist. It would be great if you were able to pick up right where you leave off no matter the device you are reading on and as long as you have an internet connection.
Hi, Last year I read "Collapse" by Richard Stephenson. I bought it for download on my NOOK.
It's sequel "Resistance" is out by hasn't been available on NOOK. I don't have a Kindle and can't afford one right now. How can you order specific titles? I tried once on a contact email but it was returned with an error message.
I have a Simple Touch and am not very clever re computors. I had about 120 library books I wanted to get OFF as my available space was down to 30%. I had gone to B&N stores and talked with phone help all to no avail. the instruction manual was also hopeless. Those instructions did not work unless it was an item I had bought at B&N. I could not even archive these. Basically I had been told there was no way short of rebooting and starting over. Last week I was in my local B&N store and asked the clerk and WOW! I found out how and have gotten rid of the 120 books and have 96% of the space left!! SO FOR OTHER POSSIBLE FOLKS LIKE ME, HERE IS THE SCOOP! Plug in the NOOK to your computor. Go to My Computor, to the drive ( I for me) where these books are hiding and just go in an delete! You can tell the titles and it is SO EASY!! Only took me a year to get lucky!
I have a Nook Simple Touch and I love it. It's a few years old, and will probably need to be replaced this year, but I am really hesitant to buy the Glowlight, because it feels like a downgrade compared to the old Simple Touch. I'm not sure what I'm going to do when I have to replace it, but unless a new Glowlight comes out with a microSD slot, I won't be buying one.
* Please add a microSD slot to the Glowlight. With sites like Smashwords, this feature is a must. People use e-ink devices like the Paperwhite and the Glowlight because they are hard core readers -- we don't want to play with apps, we want to read books, and often get them from multiple sources.
* Please consider the ability to use coupon codes/discounts for Nook Books. I realize that a lot of the difficulty in offering this is that permission to discount requires the publisher's permission, but the Kobo store is able to do this for many of its book, so I don't see why Barnes and Noble can't. As an example, the Nook store offered a book for $9.99. The Kobo store also offered the same book for $9.99, but allowed me to use a 50% off coupon code, so I was able to purchase the book for $5 and side load it to my Nook.
I really hope BN is paying attention to these boards. I recently read that they layed off a major portion of the hardware development team, so I'm naturally concerned about the future of the Nook product, but I think if BN went "back to basics" and really listened to its customer base to build an ereader with the reader in mind, they'd see a big increase in sales and loyalty.
The newest Nook Glowlight has a gray, rubber border on the device which is removable (though unadvised for long periods by your associates). B&N should look into creating different colored versions of this rubber border for a really cool, stylish was to custiomize your Nook Glowlight. I for one would love a dark blue one! NOOK GlowLight
Magazines and comic books can take up a lot of space (especially if you subscribe to many). Adding an option to save to SD card memory would be great on Android devices. I can not think of any competitor (Sony, Amazon, Kobo, Zinio) that currently allows this and could give B&N an advantage in this competative market.
