        My 2 cents as a prospective Buyer...


        I'm following this thread with interest in becoming a Nook User and think it's not only important  that early adopters voice their "Wishlist" ideas but also critical that B&N respond in a timely manner. There are a few issues that might delay my purchase unless I'm confident that a software release is scheduled with fixes and updates.

        Just curious, how often has B&N provided software updates for their Readers?

        Keep up the great work and my personal Thanks! for making the effort to provide the feedback.

        And BTW, my number one request after just a few hours of use would be;

        1. Wishlist synchronization between B&N online and Nook.
          (I find it amazing that this was not included...)

          I would like know this as well.

            Biggest things for me.

             

            Being able to view and select more than one layer of Table of Contents.  If I have a book in three volumes in one epub, it's impossible to navigate.  There's no reason we shouldn't be able to access multiple layers of TOC

             

            The shelving is a definite issue.  The ops idea is good

             

            PDF pan and zoom yes please

             

            AND... I still want the option to type in a word for look up.  For example I select enure and I get alternate spelling of inure, which doesn't help me because if I don't know the defintion of inure, and I'm unable to look it up.  This should be an option when you click the more button inside a book.

              Not unless B&N decides to install it (I meant run Calibre on the N2E itself, as a NOOK app).


              Oh you mean like the android app. Doubtful you'll see that on the N2E without paying first.

               

               

              Also another thing for my wishlist? Share to work for sideloaded books.

                Well, I finally took the plunge and got myself a new Nook Simple Touch and I am really enjoying it so far.  I will be passing along my N1E to my daughter.  


                After a week of use, here is my wish list for 1.1 enhancements:

                 

                1. Open up the browser.  We all know its buried in there.
                2. Make the reading screen customizeable by user.  I miss the display from my N1E. Personally, I would like to see:
                  1. the book title in the upper left
                  2. battery indicator, wifi status and time in the upper right
                3. Next to the battery icon I would like to see the actual % of battery life left
                4. Make the Home screen customizable by the user.  For example, instead of "What To Read Next" or "New Reads", I would like to see the last 3 or 4 books that I openned.
                5. Ability to delete sideloaded books from the Nook instead of having to hook it up to my PC.
                6. Ability to add to or remove from my shelves from the detail page.
                7. And finally, I would like to be able to reorder the books on my shelves.

                Thanks!

                  Seconding the sentiment that I'd just like the current features to evolve. Or, heck, just work correctly would be nice.

                   

                  Namely "currently reading," bookmarks, and shelf ordering. So frustrating that I have to skip around and fiddle with my device just to find the bookmarks I had to put in place because it won't hold my place on the book I'm reading when I leave the book to look at my library.

                   

                  Really hoping for a "bigger" update, SOON. At this point, I'm seriously eyeing the kobo, and wondering if I can just get a refund for my new N2E.

                    Is it a sideloaded book?  I've only had one book that my Nook would get confused on and I noticed there was a comma in the file name.  Like "Book, The -- Author.epub"

                     

                    I took out the comman and suddenly there were no problems remembering what page I'm on.

                    • 142. Re: [N2E] Wishlist for 1.1 Update

                      I agree that there are several things needed and like your list. I would add that there should be an indication ALWAYS if wireless is ON. Otherwise, the Nook2 sucks battery life bigtime.

                       

                      I would also like to see Nook memopry and additional SD card memory viewed as "one." None of this separating the memory into 2 different pieces. Maybe for those that like it separated, it could be switchable?

                       

                      On my wife's Nook2 (already replaced when less than a month old due to excesive battery use) if she looks at settings by hitting the Nook key...when she goes back to the book she was reading...it's at thw wrong page#. I have not seen that on my Nook though. Weird.

                        Display the description from an ebook's metadata (opf)file for sideloaded books.

                        <dc: description>

                         

                        Adding <dc: subject> to search results would also be nice. This is the tag field in Calibre and most publishers use this. It would allow for searches by genre or subject.

                          All nice suggestions. I would like to one more to this.

                           

                          - more bright (or white) background on pages so we get improved contrast while reading.

                            • support SVG links (touch to jump to new location)
                            • (for the umpteenth time) support multi-level TOC
                            • a more functional web browser & ability to download/sideload content from browser
                            • image zoom/pan
                            • image viewer (for manga etc.). like Kobo Touch.
                            • PDF zoom/pan, landscape fit-to-width viewing
                            • display cover images for ADE-loaded books

                               I think it would be great to be able to lock the touch screen so when reading a book you could press a lock button on the screen and the touch screen would no longer respond until you pressed the "n"button or maybe the power button in back.  Users could still navigate pages with the side buttons but would not risk touching the screen and losing their place.  I sometimes fall asleep while reading and I touch the screen on the right or left and lose my place.  I've talked to a lot of people who agree with this.  It would especially help at the beach if you were to put it in a ziplock bag or waterproof case(the bag would not affect the touch screen as it would be locked).  What do you think?  By the way, I love my N2E!

                                I like it.

                                  1.  Better shelving

                                  2.  Lock code

                                  3.  Ability to "upload" shelving, i.e., let me organize the books in the shelves the way I want them with the larger screen and UI capabilities of my Mac or PC.

                                  • 149. Re: [N2E] Wishlist for 1.1 Update

                                    I just bought the N2E this last week. Aside from the other issues with the shelves, every time I plug in the Nook to sideload a new book all of the over 400 books I have on my SD card get removed from the shelves they were on. This is very annoying. It was already annoying to have to go through my entire book list to organize it and then for all that work to be lost in seconds. This is one issue that needs to be resolved.
