    What users want in the NOOKcolor 1.1 update

      Great thread idea from Jeffrey ( Nook_Engineer).

       

      Pinch to Zoom in browser

      Android Market ( Rutter9)

      Dolphin browser option ( watchingDclock)

          It hasn't even been released - and you want it updated already?:smileysurprised:

            Personally I want some things to make this a full featured all in one ereader . . like how about a Twitter app, a Facebook App, a Gmail app, even a builtin in RSS Newsreader would be great.  Perhaps a calendar app that would sync with Google Calander.

             

              Also, a print feature would be nice . . EVEN if it was only able to print as a PDF file to your SD card that you could then stick into your printer and print.

             

            Also, if Docs To Go has an android app I'd like to see that avaiable for some very very basic office document editing.  LIke to fix a typo or something simple like that.

             

            Perhaps the ability to play MP4 videos that were loaded onto a memory card.  It would be a great vacation machine then  . . let my son read some ebooks or watch a movie in the car . .then I'd be able to read my "paper" or a book in the hotel later after I check my email, twitter, calendar, and facebook.

             

            That would make this soooo much more appealing to me than an iPad.  I haven't bought either yet . .but as I'm trying to decide what I really want froma device like this. . . and well the above is what I really want.  THe ipad to me is just too big and expensive if the Nook color could do these things then I'd be in for one for sure.

             

            I'd like these things more than "games" though Angy Birds would be cool.

              It's supposed to do MP4 video already.  I would assume that means from the memory card as well.

                Have feature for pdf and ebook files like the nook study program.  I would love to be able to highlight and add personal notes to my files while studing with my nook.

                  I'd like to see the NookColor support .CBZ and .CBR formats from the sd card.

                    I have bought couple of kindle books (around 30).  I want to read those kindle books in NOOK color.  Android market has an application for kindle.  If Nook Color supports android market app, it will be really nice.

                      Oh that would be so epic if the Kindle app could be installed on the NOOKcolor, Amazon would have a fit.

                        Fits of joy. J. Bezos would be thrilled to have an Amazon app on the NC. Amazon is far more interested in selling books than technology.

                          I want to be able to make my Bookshelf my Daily Shelf

                           

                          I want to be able to move my sideloaded books to my home screen. I have an Android phone so by habit, I LOVE the 3 screens...

                           

                          I want to be able to add books to my Daily Shelf, I guess close to the first "I want".

                            I'd love to see eReader (pdb) support added back like it was on the original nook.  I'm  B&N customer with a LOT of books from B&N owned eReader.com that I'd really like to read on a nook Color, but, as it is now, can't and can't install the B&N app from eReader.com to read them either.

                            • 11. Re: What users want in the NOOKcolor 1.1 update

                              Only just got my nookcolor and first thing I noticed that needs fixing is the image gallery and Library>My Files>Pictures.

                               

                              In short in the image gallery I can't view separate folders I created... forcing me to painstakingly scroll through literally the thousands of Image's I've uploaded one at a time but only after they've uploaded in grid view (oh and I can't figure out how to sort through those images, many seem reverse ABC order from my files names... very odd... even with images from the same files and not a different file)

                               

                              Then I went into Library>My Files>Pictures so I could view my images in there folders and I can see all my files  just fine and open them as such but... I can't scroll through the images (very annoying). Worse yet, there is no back button... only a button to take me the image gallery, which doesn't drop me to that pic but in a random spot. So I can't scroll through from there where I wanted to be in the first place (which aren't in order of my file names anyways... so I wonder why I'm complaining about when that issue would need to be solved first). 

                               

                              Guess I'm going to have to waste many hours converting my images to a PDF (and figuring out how) so I can actually view the stuff. :smileysad: Can I zoom in on pdfs? would be a pointless waste of my time if I couldn't... heads up would be nice.

                                thousands of pictures?

                                 

                                You know this isn't a picture viewer right? 

                                 

                                Jeez, 20 tops.

                                  Sensitivity adjustment. Im not sure if i have shaky fingers or what but i get ttwwoo lleetttteerrss almost every time i type.

                                   

                                   

                                  Task Manager. I can't close Pandora without logging out?

                                   

                                  Sound/Music/Pandora bug. You should not be able to hear all three at the same time. If I am listening to Pandora and another app opens that uses the sound they play over top of each other.

                                   

                                   

                                  Social Network App. Twitter/Facebook/Gtalk its great to be able to post to these sites but a full feature app would be greatly appreciated.  

                                   

                                  Ability to add "Extras" to my home page. I would like the ability to place icons such as Pandora on the desktop.

                                    

                                  Email/Gmail client. I know i know i know ... its an ebook reader not a tablet. I spend a great deal of time reading email ... it would be nice to not have to set down the nook to pull out my laptop to read mail. I know i can get the webmail version but it would be nice to have notifications ect...

                                    Here's a couple problems I have been having.  May I'm just missing something though and someone here can tell me how to fix it.

                                    1. When on the web and I scroll to the bottom of the page I have to go all the way back to the top to be able to go back or type in a new address.  Is this just me?  I only use web for this site and facebook occassionally.  But when I open a thread on here it would be nice not to have to scroll to top of page again to go back to the main page.

                                    2. I tried to post status on facebook and it wouldn't let me.  I clicked in the box and the keyboard popped up.  I type one letter and it goes away.  I am able to search or comment on peoples status though.  I don't intend to use this very much but I at least wanted to use it once to brag about my new toy!

                                    3. When reading on internet I keep accidently bringing up the menu with settings, find, etc. but I can't get that box to go away unless I open one of the items in the menu and click back.

                                     

                                    That's about the only problems I have so far.  I still love it though!  Oh and is the door for the sd card supposed to be so easy to open or is it just mine?  I keep accidently opening mine.  Just seems a little to easy to open to me.
