              Actually it's useless, (eh except for weather, but its just the temp).

               

              The new app is usually months old, and the books, eh.

               

              Hey, here's an idea !!!! :smileywink: How about something useful !

               

              Like, today's free app of the day is (insert app here) ! Or, er.. anything interesting:smileyfrustrated:

                  You are right, mrs. Splatzenber, useless. I seldom remember to go there. Maybe if they put the Nook Daily Find or Free Friday I wold consider it useful, but as it stands, it is wasted space.

                       Sadly, B&N has been missing so many opportunities to sell e-books.  I got the Nook HD for Christmas.  It replaced a Nook 1st Edition I got in June 2010.  I have yet to see a good recommendation engine.  On the 1st edition, the promotions at the bottom never changed.  On the HD, I can't add to my wishlist from the website.  The 1st edition used the website wishlist.  Therefore, my old wishlist didn't transfer to my new device. 

                       

                      Did I mention they need a better recommendation engine?

                          Given that there are hundreds of free apps in the store already, it shouldn't take much effort to create a 'Free App of the Day'.

                           

                          Add on 'Free App Deal of the Day' where one app is half-price.

                           

                          And it's a pretty compelling offering.

                           

                          *****

                          To that, throw in

                           

                          1) Free Friday Book.

                          2) Daily Find

                          3) Daily Find for Families

                          4) Daily Find Romance

                          5) Daily Find Thriller

                          6) Daily Find Potluck

                           

                          Sales for the Daily Finds would be through the roof.

                              Agreed ! :smileyhappy: Kudo's !

                               

                              btw, has the issue with 'your nook today' been fixed? I dont have access to device ATM.

                                I think those are great ideas.  I didn't even notice the daily problem because half the time I never even look at it.  My local weather isn't even my city but the one next to us.  The books don't change, etc.  Something useful would probably get my interest and my money.

                                That's why Amazon's Kindle Fire is a leader in e-reader/tablets. Their marketing is unmatched.

                          Mine is showing but like most say it's a waste of space.  It's shown me the same books on every page since the day i got my nook.  Most of these I allready own lol.  I dont even bother looking at it anymore.

                              I agree is seems likeI a waste of space. I've had the same books since the beginning as well. You would think it would be used as a marketing opportunity. For instance show new books that came out that week instead of  some old Gooseberry cookbooks. (Have no idea why those are there as I have bought a cook book & probably never will.)
