        1. Actually use the Home screen for content. Assumed it was me but apparently no one can add "side loaded" content to the home screen.

        2. Pandora account information option to store user name and password.

        3. back option as in a finger swipe.

        4. An option to update BN content. For example, if I archive crud, I should be able to initiate a synch and have it removed from the Nookcolor not also do a manual archive from the NookColor.

        5. When using shelves, remove from "library" or provide an option to see only content not in book shelves.

        6. Provide an option to view only a specific auther.

        7. tag support for viewing the library (science fiction, fantasy, paranormal, mystery, etc.) as well as search based on tags. See Calibre! or Nookdev.org's Library applet.

        8. Why the heck are my book covers in the picture gallery?

         

        I suspect all the above are noted by other users for they are so clearly obvious after less than two hours use but wanted BN to hear yet another frustrated voice.

          I need a calendar!  I also found out today that the NOOKcolor doesn't support .m4v videos, another disappointment.

              I receive all of my packages from B&N and other vendors through Post Office.  B&N includes a Postal tracking number, all you need to do is go to USPS.Com and enter the tracking number.  I have received all my packages damage free.  Possibly it got damaged by the carrier prior to delivery to the Post Office.

                My contribution to the "what users want" list:

                 

                Currently, while reading a book, I can highlight text and then perform a Google or wikipedia search on the highlighted text using the "Look-up" feature (which I've found useful). 

                 

                However, the search seems to only include the first word in the highlighted text - not all of the words. 

                 

                For example, after highlighting the words "Tom Sawyer" and using the Look-Up function, the Nook only searches for "Tom".    Searching for "Tom Sawyer" would be much better.

                 

                I hope it is an easy change!

                  just bought mine and really like it.  the magazine reading interface is indeed clunky, though.  if you just want to zoom in and read the bottom of the page (with pictures and all), it cuts some of the bottom articles off when it's trying to automatically center the page.  (sorry i don't speak tech here).  also, the interface is way too sensitive.  if you get to the bottom of the page by dragging your finger, it pops up the overall menu bar for the magazine instead, or it thinks you want to zoom out and re-center everything. 

                   

                  this whole magazine reader needs to be adjusted quickly.

                    I have several .m4v videos loaded that work. Some people have to convert their videos to work. I haven't had any issues. Just drag from my iTunes folder and they work.

                      I love love love my NOOKcolor!

                       

                      Right now I'd only ask for a few things:

                       

                      1. Please allow for sideloaded content to be dipslayed on the Home Screen (VITAL)

                       

                      2. Ability to delete directly from the NOOKcolor

                       

                      3. Landscape mode for books

                       

                      4. Some kind of weather app would be cool

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

                        I love the fact that Office Documents can be stored on the NOOKcolor. However, it serves no purpose for being there if you cannot edit them.  At a minimum I should be able to attach notes and then when I am within range of my PC then do an update.

                         

                        I would also like to have a notepad for jotting notes.

                          "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."

                           

                          I have to believe this is a bug. I fall into this same place and it simply cannot be intentional. If it is I will be taking the nook color back. I am not about to re-purchase about 25 books, some of which I have not read yet, due to this issue.

                            They may or may not decide to add .pdb support in the future, but it's not a "bug."  It's fully disclosed on the specs page of the item description.  .pdb is *not* listed as a supported file type.

                             

                            http://www.barnesandnoble.com/nookcolor/features/techspecs/?cds2Pid=35878

                             

                            Two different B&N agents have verified that .pdb is not supported.

                              Having had the first Nook for 6 months, I asked my B&N geek if the new Nook color had any improvement in the battery life.  He smiled, and said "It's much worse.  " If you're lucky, you'll get maybe 6 hours of reading time, and that's if the WiFi is turned off, straight reading time."

                               

                              While I have suggested this to my wife for Xmas, I am not at all happy about such a short battery life, as I travel a lot, and don't always have a plug available.   In addition, it would make me very unhappy if somehow, B&N were able to provide a longer life battery, and not offer this to existing Nook color owners. 

                               

                              So I guess what I would want is two fold.  One, A larger capacity battery to give at least a 24hr reading time, and just as important, this upgrade to be offered to existing owners of the color.

                               

                              OK, what happened to the nice AT&T option??

                               

                               

                              I was impressed with the unit itself, however.   Unless Amazon does a complete redesign, I think the Nook will win out not only for the color and viewing ease, but most importantly, it's much larger viewing area.  I'll bet a buck though that Amazon brings out the short battery life of the new Nook in their ads.

                                Hello,

                                 

                                Do I understand your post correctly in that all of my books that I have purchased with my first Nook will not work in the new color Nook?

                                 

                                Thanks.

                                  Hi,

                                   

                                  "4. Some kind of weather app would be cool"

                                   

                                  The NC does - sorta. Point the NC's browser to http://forecast.weather.gov

                                  (US only, National Weather Service).

                                   

                                  Enter your zipcode in the box at the top of that page, click the Go button.

                                   

                                  You now have your local weather, forecasts, radar, satellite images. Bookmark it in the NC.

                                   

                                  Sort of a pet peeve of mine - I hate seeing folk pay for or use some ad-laden app for information their tax dollars provide already. Especially as that data is the source for all those apps - the only "private" weather radar sites are a very few private airstrips, everybody else uses NEXRAD data, provided by the NWS.

                                    How about make it so we can post on this board with our Nook Color web browser.  I found it very ironic that I can't post here from the nook. 

                                     

                                    Also, for the first hardware update, standard USB charging is a must so we can leveraged existing computer and car USB charges.  Especially until we get battery that lasts longer.
