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.
It would be incredibly useful both in the nook Shop and on the main B&N website to be able to filter by desired language. If you can only read books in your native languge, it's tedious and time-consuming to scroll through page after page of books in other languages. I rather suspect both that relatively few users purchase books in multiple languages and that quite a few people give up and stop shopping because they got tired of looking through page after page of books they can't read.
I love your B&N bookstore. I am a french travelers and always get one or two books to go home (beautiful one) in Paris. I would like to buy the ebook of the book I am buying...each time. Buying a book and your ebook at the same time can be nice. Via a flash code, ticket-code, whathever. Think of it it it doesn't exist. Thanks,
The first Thing is when i am watching a video on the internet and i get a noise telling me i have a new notification it makes it so when i try to change the volume of my movie either to make it louder or softer, the nook thinks that I wish to change the volume of the notification sound instead, so to prevent the nook from getting confused it would be great to have a button in the settings that will mute the notifications or just make the notification volume only available in the settings. Otherwise the nook can get very confused.
The second thing is that i use the Barnes & Noble HDMI connector for the Nook to the TV, I love being able to play my games, watch my movies, and enjoy the ultimate laziness of reading my book on a 70 inch screen. When my family sits down to pick a movie with the nook plugged into the TV it would be a nice feature when plugged into the HDMI connector, if the nook could turn horrizontally in the shop because since the shop does not normally flip horizontally on the Nook it shows sideways on the television. If the screen flipps than all of my family members would be able to read about the movies so we can pick what we want to watch that night.
Thank you for your time.
At the bottom of the B&N Community discussion list is a link to "B&N Blogs" at http://bookclubs.barnesandnoble.com/t5/B-N-Blogs/ct-p/BNBlogs which is of course hopelessly obsolete.
How about either (a) redirecting it to the actual Nook Blog at http://www.barnesandnoble.com/nook-blog/ or (b) just removing the link.
Leaving an obsolete link to a dead blog is just sloppy.
Most alphabetizing by title ignores "a" and "the." B & N's unconventional use of "A" and "The" when alphabetizing titles makes books difficult to find. First I have to look at the overall list, then look at all the titles beginning with "A" and then all the titles beginning with "The." Is there a reason the convention is nor followed? Can we get it changed?
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.
The shopping experience for nook books is very tedious with regards to the review system. There are literally hundreds of spam reviews that make the customer rating system highly inaccurate. I have three suggestions:
1. Don't allow for reviews to post right away. Have there be a 24-48 hour delay.
2. Label a review with a "verified purchase" title if the reviewer has purchased the nook book AND allow to sort ratings by verified purchases.
3. Reviews must be approved before being posted.
Reporting the spam reviews doesn't seem to remove them. I open up the shop window on my nook with the intent to make purchases, but I usually don't end up purchasing anything. Many times I simply close the shop window because it's too much of a hassel to try to find legitimate reviews. I realize I have the option of going to a competitor site and read reviews there, but if I have to continuously do that, then the convenient thing for me (or anyone) to do would be to stop making them the middle man and instead purchase from them because I'm already at their site. I would prefer to continue purchasing from Barnes and Noble.
Barnes and Noble staff please take into serious consideration these suggestions. Thank you for your time.
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.
Can we get a proper blocking or muting function for the forums? It would be helpful to the forums overall for users to be able to mute their view of the posts of troublemakers - it decreases the likelihood forum members will respond to flames, and when a troll gets nothing for their trolling, they tend to lose interest in the forum and will go away on their own. Having a solid blocking function will allow these forums to be used as they were meant to be - by folks helping others and getting help from others, as opposed to constant bickering and harassment that's been a feature of these forums for a couple of years now.
I know there is currently a block function, but it appears to only block PMs and does not block the offender's posts from the user's view.
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.
