          Just want to add my two cents on future adds/updates.  I just got my NC after years of squinting to read on my old Palm Zire 71.  What a difference!  I love my new toy!  However, I still have to carry around my Palm in addition to my NC, at least until the following features are added:

           

          • Alarm Clock
          • Calculator
          • Address Book (able to import addresses)

          Someone else mentioned a "notepad" feature, which would be wonderful but for me not absolutely necessary as are the other three items.  I also like the idea of being able to put side-loaded books on the main page, which I was disappointed to find that I couldn't do.

           

          Ahhh, to lighten the weight of my purse by removing extra electronic gadgets...:womanvery-happy:

            "What users want in the NOOKcolor 1.1 update?"

             

            For it to actually be released......................

              Someone may have already suggested this:

               

              I would like to see a way to manage your magazines, such as renew or cancel a subscription. Also be able to manger you BN account from the nookcolor, such as adding gift cards and manage credit cards.

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

                I got my NookColor for Xmas & love it, however, I carry this and a dayplanner everywhere (as I don't wish to pay an additional $30 a month for a data package for my cell phone).  So I would love it if I could also use the NookColor to hold all my appts.  I wouldn't need internet access for that feature, just to be able to keep everything written down and all in one spot.  When I go to the kids' doctor appts or sporting events, I always have stuff for them in my Nook, but to be able to add appts right in it would be so much more convenient!!!

                Address Book, Calculator, Notes are all excellent additions.  I don't really use it to check email and whatever all on the internet, let's face it, it is an e-reader, but the addition of some simple organizational tools, as mentioned, would be super helpful.  Although I have some of these on my cell phone, all on my e-reader would be better.

                  - I'd love a search option that would let you search one, a few, or every book on your nook for a word or phrase.

                  - Activate bluetooth, so I can listen to MP3s wirelessly while reading.  Then let devs use it for inter-nook game play. Scrabble with three other nook color owners!

                    I really want to be alble to add more crossword puzzles to my nook color. I've apparently done them all, because I got a repeat the other day.

                      You can do all of the above things already with your NC...

                       

                      -  hold your finger on the first word in your sentence/paragraph/phrase/page 

                      -  once that word is highlighted, put your finger back on it and drag it down the

                         words until you get to the last word and let go

                      - a tool bar will pop up that says  Highlight/notes/share/lookup

                      - if you choose highlight it will highlight the whole area and you can then hold

                        your finger on the highlighted area and perform other tasks 

                      *** I'm not sure if this works with the google/wiki because I don't have wi-fi where I am now

                      * forward button in addidion to the back button

                       

                       A forward button would be fabulous!!!!!!

                        A private bookshelf that can be password protected would be wonderful also!

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

                          Some of this has likely been mentioned before, but with 23 pages of threads, I'll just try to sum up my own interests:

                           

                          I love my nook color very much and am glad I have it instead of an iPad-- not just for the sake of the money not spent but the size and other reasons to boot-- in using it, though, I'm coming to put together a wish list of things I'd love to be able to access as more software's developed inside BN or in conjunction with outside Android developers.

                           

                          1.  A digital notepad where I can jot notes, maybe in the "extras" section, something that doesn't require me to be near a wifi hotspot.  It doesn't have to have all the functionality of a full Wordpad-type program (thought that would be nice)-- just a simple text-only document that could be saved and exported if I so chose, so I don't have to shove a small pad of paper into the pockets inside my nook cover.  It seems kind of redundant, doesn't it, if one of the points of the nook is to conserve paper?  After all, I'm bookmarking my cooking magazines and cookbooks on my nook and shopping from those.  Why shouldn't I put my random notes in my nook too?

                           

                          2.  Ability to access and use google documents, and to use other features of gmail in the non-mobile/non-basic-html views without the browser stalling up/timing out.  I am not a coder and this may/not have something to do with bandwidth of the wifi or the current software on board, but I am a writer and editor in addition to my day job.  While I don't want/intend to use my nook as a mini-computer, it'd be nice to access my gdocs to see if my redlines have been accepted by my authors while I'm out and about and have 15 minutes to kill and jot down a paragraph's worth of ideas, rather than wait 'til I'm home (or carry a separate notebook), and I'd like to be able to send more complicated/linked messages in gmail than what the current setup allows.

                           

                          3.  An interactive calendar/access to google calendar so I don't have to carry a separate paper calendar too.

                            It's been mentioned before (in this thread, I'm not sure), but god I'd love to be able to pick the books it bases it's 'Books we think you'll love' on.  I'm really getting tired of getting suggestions for Women's Health and Guideposts just because I bought one copy of Readers Digest two months ago so I could read Laughter on a whim.  Or 'Picked Just for You' getting a bunch of books I'd never read because I downloaded a free book that I didn't like.

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

                              I would love support for pdb files - from Fictionwise and ereader - both owned by B&N.  So support on the NC would be grand!

                               

                              The app marketplace for Android would be good as well.  And pinch zoom.

                               

                              For the most part, I love my NC.  We've struggled a bit with the video, but have found the technical support here and will try that this weekend.  Hopefully, that will remove that problem.

                                Agreed-- the query/pick engine bn is using isn't nearly so sophisticated as amazon's, alas, which is too bad since I like the fact that bn doesn't price gouge the publishers or the small presses.

                                  I would like to see B&N give the nook and nook color the abaility to navigate by book and chapter in multi book nookbooks, collections.  Sad thing is, from what I have read, they could up until the last update.

                                    I would like to watch netflix when I am browsing, and being able to make notes to myself in the books I am reading would be a fantastic feature.  I would also like to see the Android market added to the features.
