    Lack of Nook apps

      I have purchased my NOOK Tablet and have enjoyed it very much. But I've been playing on my friends ipad and really would like some of those game apps on the NOOK tablet. My favorite one is called "Cut the Rope" and I would defiantly buy it for .99 cents. Just a few more apps would make a awesome product even better :smileyhappy:

          agree if BN doesn't want for people to hack it for apps they need to get apps out pronto...

            Yeah I just got a nook tablet for Christmas, I have noted a total lack of apps. I get tired of going to a website and it wanting to download an Android app that won't work. B&N, Open Platform makes people love your product, closed makes it so no one uses it. Please update to an open platform, no one will STOP using it because of that. I loaded up Seesmic, it sucks so far. Cannot manage a fan page on FB and the twitter app is constantly saying that it has reached the maximum user registration for direct messages, get real.

             

            Please open up, unleash your really cool and stylish tablet.

                i agree best thing for BN is to open the NT and NC. There is such a small choice of apps. I would still buy books at BN,,, love the stores coffee shops,,,,, Now with the NT I can read more easy, bad eyes, at night etc,,,,, JUST open the NT to other apps.............

                I agree also, a proprietary (empty) app store is going to eventually doom this device. My Dad got one for Christmas, and he was asking me how to put apps on it. We went looking for some common ones and there was nothing there! He was puzzled and so was I. No google anything, no yelp, no accuweather. Alot of absolutely nothing.

                  My sister gave me a Nook Tablet for Christmas too.   I'm seriously thinking of returning it to B&N and getting a N. Color.   or even a Kindle Fire.  At least Amazon has a nice app selection.

                    Could we get Overdrive.  This is an ebook app that should have already been on the tablet.  MORE APPS PLEASE.

                      am also FRUSTRATED by the inability to download android apps; please open up the market for users or get on the stick and add more free apps - or i will have to return the nook tablet and get a kindle fire!  thanx

                          Another concern...really not trying to call Barnes and Noble out, but....New nook tablet for my daughter. She loves the game cut the rope. It's available on itunes and the android marketplace for .99, but through the nook app store, it's $3.50? Really? A 300% mark up due to a closed system on the nook? Would love to hear from an admin about this....
