          Only nook apps and books/maga,zines have to be downloaded to internal memory. You can change settings to download videos to the external sd card.  If you run out of space on the internal memory, you can archive content and download it to a PC using the Nook app, then sideload iy to the sd card. You can also sideload non-B&N content (books, videos, pictures, documents, PDFs,etc.) to the sd card. Open Explorer fom the Nook store and some other file managers from the GoPS permit wirless transfer from PCs on the same network. Also ceck out Dropbox and similar cloud stoage alternatives for moving files.

              But what about music?  I would really like to purchase an album on Google play and put it on the sd card so I can listen to it on my nook or my phone.  But the storage options only let you choose to download video to the sd card.  Also, I don't have a computer on which to do all that file.management.

                  I don't have music on my HD+ so I'm not positive, but I think that one of the file managers mentioned above should allow you to move downloaded music to the uSD card - I would try purchasing a single song and seeing if you can move it and if your music player can access it.  One caution on trying to use the same card on both the HD+ and the phone - the HD+ wants to format uSD cards as exFAT to allow handling large video files (>4GB) and I don't think most phones will utilize this format, so you may have to format the card as FAT32.  Also, interchanging cards is not particularly convenient.

                  Good Luck!
