    Any thoughts/suggestions about the Ipad mini and the Nook app?

    cd2011

      My Nook Color has died and I'm thinking of getting an Ipad mini and using the Nook app as a replacement.

      I would appreciate any comments, thoughts, suggestions about this.

       

      Thanks a bunch,

      Cindy

          Just keep in mind that the existing NOOK Apps don't have all of the features of the dedicated NOOK devices. You'll lose Read In Store, for one. You may (will, I think) have troubles with some magazine subscriptions. If you don't care about those things, it will work nicely for normal B&N ebook reading. * * I use Android myself, so can't speak to the Apple version with any authority. The exact capabilities of the iOS app may vary.

            +1 to everything bobstro brings up.

             

            I do use the Nook app on our iPad Minis on occasion (usually when I run out the battery on my NC), and for plain old reading it works fine, but I don't do magazines or comics, just text (with an occasional map).

             

            If you sideload a lot of books, though, it's a bit painful to make them conform to the file convention the Nook app requires, as I recall. Those are probably better off in iBooks, though I have a friend who uses a third-party reading app and raves about it (naturally, I've forgotten the name).
