        I don't know if it's already there, however, I'd appreciate the incorporation of the Weather Channel app.

          Here would be a killer peripheral: a bluetooth camera / pen / stylus for the nook tablet. Something that would be useful to carry with a nook anyway but add in a mini bluetooth camera on the end of it. Then get photo functionality and apps... instagram etc.

            I really hope the nook embraces a couple niches... the design community and students... give us real sketching programs like sketchbook pro, adobe ideas, paper, idraw, etc. These would have a broad appeal, to all demographics simply in that the apps add functionality to the device- it becomes a sketchpad as much as a book... There ought to be a stock drawing program that comes preloaded on the nook even... without this, the nook tablet is not meeting its potential as an alternative to the iPad for a chunk of the market that needs tgat fubctionality...

              Here's my two suggestions.

               

              Angry BIrds Backup

              Fruit Ninja

                As a chess player, I'd like the apps for Chess.com and ICC (Internet Chess Server). Being able to play chess online at these 2 most popular sites would make my Nook Tablet just about perfect!

                 

                Thanks.

                  I say touch base with Gameloft to increase the amount of games available.  Really missing good RPG games like Dungeon Hunter.  Also...wait for it...INFINITY BLADE 1 & 2!

                    b and n - here is the best way to make great apps available to your users - stop crippling the device, open up to the android market (google play) - then we do not have to play this game of wishing and hoping -

                     

                    specifics for me -

                    paypal, firefox, sonos, avs, facebook, pintrest -kindle ( i love my kindle reader due to the screen but graphic books would be great - amazon has better customer service in reagrd to its electronic products and return policies).

                     

                    currently b and n apps are silly trinkets that have no productive value -

                     

                     

                    and where is bluetooth...

                     

                    i wish the nook tablet was marketed correctly so that i could have saved my money -

                      A good music player (the included one is buggy, too limited in functionality and distorts album art when it even shows it).     You could just improve the existing one.

                       

                      Logitech Squeezebox remote control app (already exists for Android).

                        This would be a cool one...

                        Set of maps that go along with the Song of Ice and Fire series.  Looks pretty interesting.

                          The Comixology app, pleeeeze!

                            My review of the Nook Tablet is a complete contradiction.  There are things I absolutely LOVE about it and things that I hate.  The size is perfect and exactly what I wanted and why I didn't buy an iPad.  I love reading a book on it, having my calendar, my task list, my contacts, my email and the web on it.  But the lack of applications is the biggest disappointment.  And the apps that are there are not very good.  On the iPad you can easily select a word or a line and delete it or copy it, but this is impossible on the Nook.  I have QuickOffice and it has serious problems, most signficantly forcing a close about 1/2 the time.  And I have yet to figure out how to select multiple rows in Excel.  I haven't used the Word function yet so I can't talk to that.  And how hard is it to offer a calendar/contacts/task function that all work together.  Why do I have to put a birthday in the Contacts Plus app and then again in Calendar so I can have it show up on my calendar.  The Fliq Calendar app is pretty good and I use it sufficiently, but it's lacking a lot of features that most basic calendars have like "End Date" for a repeating function, or the ability to select which days to repeat - like Monday/Wednesday/Friday.  You have to enter it 3 times to do that.  I think it's impossible to list what apps would be great to have as everyone has different needs (I'd like a volleyball scoring app - not just score but player stats).  I wish the Android market apps were available to the Nook as most of the apps everyone wants are out there just not available to Nook owners.  It's extremely limiting and difficult to call it a tablet and compare it to something as functional as the iPad.  The size of it and the price point are the 2 biggest features it has.

                              If you get something like the Android For Nook SD card, you'll have all the things you say you wish for, and can use the Google Play Store (that's what the Android Market is now called) and get all of those apps that are available there but not from B&N.  And you can still use the NT in native mode.  It's the best of both worlds IMHO.

                                A Spotify app would be fantastic.

                                  HBO go for sure. Also how about Max Go and UltraViolet digital movie downloads. History has shown that companies who try to maintain proprietary systems eventually lose their markets. Open up the Nook OS and embrace the evolution of digital streaming.
