Quizard, or any flashcard app!
Don't think you will ever see IMDB on Nook since Amazon owns that site
Hmm well why not? There's an imdb app on the iPad... Who knows... You might even see a kindle app or kobo app...
From your list Robo I'd like to see Plants vs Zombies, Google+, Facebook, and IMDB. The others are a plus by all means. Skype would be awesome, especially since we have the mic. I don't need video etc but using the voice would be great.
Something I'm sorely missing is a quality email app that can sync my google calendar! The ones I've seen, Touchdown to name one, doesn't have the best user remarks so I've stayed away from it so far. I really can't believe the NT didn't launch with a quality email app to sync with atleast GMail.
Olive Tree Bible Reader - Its currently available for the NC. That being said the Dev has said they are looking into it on their forums. So time will tell.
In regards to some news and Facebook I downloaded Taptu the other day which gives you news feeds and your Facebook feed. Find the app here: http://search.barnesandnoble.com/Taptu-DJ-Your-news/Taptu/e/2940043860118?itm=6. I've really enjoyed it so far, considering its free, and it seems to work very well.
Yeah, Taptu is fine and free, or you can download Seesmic which allows you to manage a bunch of social media accounts in one place including Facebook and Twitter... however, I think they still need the first party applications for these social networks, if just to allow people to access that service, with the interface and user experience they are used to, and with regular updates direct from facebook or twutter, etc. With so many of those apps being written as html 5 applications, should be easy to get the updates once the groundwork app has been created for the nook tablet... Regarding email, the firmware email does sync with gmail... its not the best email app but okay for basic emailing...
Yeah I'm ok with the email portion but I really need a good calendar to sync my gmail calendar with.
I'd love to see Slacker Radio, Cut the Rope, Google Maps, Yelp, Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, a decent weather app, a decent calculator, a photo viewer based on Dropbox or some other cloud storage service, and the FREE versions of my favorite apps: Angry Birds, TuneIn Radio, etc. Not sure why BN has the paid versions of so many apps and not the free versions.
Lack of apps is my one big complaint with the Nook Tablet! It's a great reader, but lack of apps makes it pretty useless as a general-purpose tablet. Crossing my fingers that will change in the near future...
Bookworm (By PopCap)
Bookworm and Words with friends! all my scrabble buddies are on facebook and the facebook Words with friends does not like the Nook browser....don't wish to purchase the scrabble game offered in the app store as I would have to start my friends list again. It's a simple and free game. unsure why it is such a problem for Barnes and Noble. I know a lot of people have requested it.
Deja Office or any other SIMPLE method to synch with Outlook 2010 for contacts, calendar
IMB for pulling all contacts for chats together into one application
Amazon (hey, why not????? competition is great for business!)
And IMPROVE the mail app or provide us real mail applications with folders, spam filter or spam folder, synch contacts, etc. The current mail app doesn't clean up well and is a bit primitive.
Thanks for this opportunity to share...........
Would love to have a Bookworm app by Big Fish Games
I can't believe the full line of google isnt standard on tablet
There should be also slacker radio, radio360 and more audio options for streaming
LOVE that you can play music while reading a book but the speaker on the back is kinda lame
The entire Android Market. It is a foolish, indeed a doomed strategy for Barnes & Noble to limit the applications available on the NT. Right now, I use my tablet only as an e-reader. For everything else I use my smart phone, mostly because what I can do for free on my phone I have to purchase on the NT. I can guarantee that it'll take some real convincing for me to buying another Barnes & Nobel product in the future. And I tell people who are on the bubble the by a Kindle Fire instead because they can access all those free apps that I can only wish for on lists like this.
But to answer the question directly:
A FREE scientific calculator ( .99? Really? My phone is free.)
A FREE stop watch/timer/alarm clock ( 1.00? Really? My phone is free.)
A measurements coversion tool (I have access to a dozen free ones on my phone.)
Stitcher (free on my phone)
Slacker Radio (far superior to Pandora -- and free as well)
Dropbox (free on my phone of course)
Cozi (yes, free)
