I would love those 3 features on my new color.
Wow, and to think all I wanted was an e-reader.
Each to his own...
I agree that a better Web browser (or two, or three) need to be made available. Pinch-and-zoom has been mentioned, but also gestures for back, forward, and top/bottom of page would be GREAT. Like was mentioned, having to scroll back to the top of a long Web page to type in a new URL is a pain.
Blah, blah, blah... I know this is marketed as an e-reader foremost, but Web browsing speed/experience on this is at least as good as on any other top-of-the-line ultra-mobile device I've tried, and incomparably better than everything else.
Also been mentioned, but some PIM apps (calendar, to-do, address book, etc.) would be great. Also, a better PDF viewer (with bookmark, highlight, etc. functionality) would be awesome.
I would like Pandora to remember my log in information.
Going to m.facebook.com is--at best--an ugly workaround. A lot of facebook features are missing.
Tied into this thread, and related to that, there should be a way to tell it "Yes, I know you think that I don't need the keyboard, but bring up the keyboard and put characters in that box anyway!"
Just got the nookcolor today and it is awesome! But...
theres always room for improvement!
*Be able to move sideloaded books and documents to the homescreen
*Be able to share quotes from sideloaded books and documents!
*pinch to zoom in browser
*when making custom bookshelves, be able to search titles to add (too much scrolling!)
*when I'm typing in the browser, it sometimes clicks links "through" the keyboard. Kind of weird and frustrating.
*even though I logged into google and facebook, it wont display any of my contacts...
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!
I noticed the same thing about not being able to update my facebook status. I was able to type one letter and then the keyboard disappeared. Hopefully this is something that will be remedied quickly. I tend to type status updates related to whatever I am reading. Would have really liked to be able change my status to read "NOOKCOLOR ROCKS!!!" but after realizing that I couldn't do it from the NC the urge just left me. sadface
Haha yes I really wanted to write something along the lines of bragging about updating from my nook but sadly that didn't happen *hopes squashed*
Oh yes! Sorry for the spamming but i forgot
more video codecs please! I can't watch my videos!
MP4 works great. Used free converter "any video converter" to convert some family videos and favorite YouTube videos. Wasn't able to convert full length movie though
Absolutely second item #2 above. At some point we should be able integrate the nook color and nook study, but at a bare minimum we MUST have a way to collecting the highlights and notes we take. I can post my highlights to facebook, but I can't pull off a text file with that same information?
To make this device a killer for students, allow us to highlight passages, and then access a file on the device directly AND via USB for notes and studying.
Would also be nice if the highlighting was a little easier, maybe a study mode on some future release that allows you to simply drag to highlight, without the 3 or 4 clicks it takes nows.
Just got might in the mail - packaging was destroyed by B&N's shipper - suggest they upgrade to a real trackable company like FedEx and drop the post office. Could not track it at all...
Anyway, my wife and I played with it a little, both of us had trouble with the keyboard being way too sensitive with many repeated keys. No adjustment in the "keyboard Setting" - this would be nice...
Also, Wish it enlarged when typed like the iPhone.
Otherwise, so far I like it. Looking forward to see the battery life.
I would like to see extended supported files. I have the nook 3g AND just bought the color and my library is no longer supported.
Also it would be nice if the landscape would be extended and not just limited to the internet.
Why would Amazon have a fit? It would just mean more potential customers for it's ebook store. Limiting your potential customer base is what would make no sense.
I'd like to see the browser keep my zoom level settings when it goes from page to page.
My NookColor arrived today. It's really beautiful, with a wonderful screen, nice navigation, etc. Sure wish it would support all those books I bought at Fictionwise and ereader - since they are owned by B&N! How about B&N - you own it, it should work on your tech!
Put me down for support of secure eReader formatted books from Fictionwise (wholly owned subsidiary of B&N). Yes, I should have (apparently) read the supported file types more carefully before I spent the money on the nook color, but come on. This really isn't making me feel particularly comfortable about purchasing any further DRM protected content from the nook store. Will I have to worry about losing THOSE books when the nook 3D or whatever comes out next Christmas?
