          I started a thread on this a month or two ago myself - glad to have stumbled across this thread.

           

          Can view my list of small fix requests below

          http://bookclubs.barnesandnoble.com/t5/NOOKcolor-General-Discussion/Nook-Color-Suggestions-Improvements/m-p/864944/highlight/true#M8759

           

          Having used my NC for almost 2 months now: I have 2 large gripes: If I am viewing a pdf in landscape mode (NC rotated) and I hit the return arrow to take me back to my library, the library is still in portait orientation - the library needs to respect the rotation of the nook, or at least have that option. Same thing should apply to ebooks - I want to view an epub rotated from time to time, should be an option.

           

          Lastly, anyone know if it is possible to zoom in on a photo in an epub? I could do away with many of my pdfs if I could simply be able to zoom charts/photos embedded in the epub... if not thats another request.

          • 17. Re: Wish List for next Color Nook software upgrade?  Post what you want here.

            1. Adding sideloaded content to home screen

             

            2. Better PDF reading

             

            3. Rotating library

             

            4. I would like to be able to delte content driectly from my NC without having to go online to BN and do it there or plug it into my computer.

             

            6. Please fix the issue of the NC wigging out when plugged into a power source. It makes it unusable.

             

            7. I would like it if saved images from the inernet show up in my galleries without my having to reboot so I can use them as wallpaper.

             

            8. I would also like it my photos have thumbnails inside the folder rather than a picture of a flower.

             

            9. In fact please fix the whole gallery thing, it's weird sometimes, wish I could think of an example right now but coffee is brewing.

             

             

            10. This is my BIGGEST wish, please fix the issue of sideloaded book covers not showing up so that users don't have to jump through hoops to make them appear in their library. and that goes for pdf. too!!!

             

            That's all I can think of right now.

             

             

            • 18. Re: Wish List for next Color Nook software upgrade?  Post what you want here.

              Gallery organization is my number one wish.  My personal pictures are all mixed in with the side loaded book covers.  I can't find the movies for the same reason.  I would like to be able to use the slide show function to show people pictures, but they don't need to see all my book covers.  We really need folders in the gallery!!

                If you have a B&N near you, take it in and show them what it is doing. They should replace your charger and/or USB cable.

                 

                If you cant bring it in then call cust service and they should ship you new charger/cable

                 

                A lot of people had the same issue and a new charger/ USB cable fixed it. From what I read here, B&N did not give anyone a hard time on this.

                    1. I would like for the magazine scrolling two page preview which also gives the magazine table of contents at the bottom of the screen to work properly.  I find it's very hit and miss to get it to display, and I really don't know what the trick is to get it to show...one tap, two taps, middle of screen, center of screen, there is no method to getting it work, from what I can see.  Magazine controls in general like two taps to zoom seem finicky.  Make them rock solid like the book controls please.  Pinch seems to work great btw.

                    2. I would like a "Go Backwards" option to be added to the tap and hold menu for a webpage.  Right now, it seems that I have to scroll all the way to the top of a webpage to get the "Back" option.  This is inefficient and more than a little irritating.

                    3. Ability to read book in landscape mode.

                    4. If you can make office files load a little quicker, that would be great.

                      Thanks I will try that and see if it works. Mine is pretty miserable to use when plugged in.

                        I'd like the Color Note to be so useful that it would be hard to live without it. 

                        It's not a replacement for the PC workstation but to augment it for mobility and capability.

                        It should a convient replacement for my paper books, paper notes. 

                         

                        1) Color Nook could try to convert PDFs and HTML to ePub.

                        2) Ability to email or print to Color Nook from PC workstation or browser.

                        3) My library of files is starting to get huge.  Search requires knowledge of what I'm looking for.  I need a better way to organize large amounts of files, perhaps by categories. 

                        4) It would be good to be able to password folders so that I can separate work from personal.  I could then let my kids use it too.

                        5) Nice to be able to email document directly to a secure password folder for some files and another email address to public folder.

                        6) Color Nook should use SSL as often as possible.

                        7) Need a easy to use note taking application.

                        8) Email App that can write emails offline would be good too.

                        9) Facebook App

                        10) Ability to securely write books for publishing at BN.com.

                        11) Store and access Google Calender for offline.

                        12) Store and access Google Maps for viewing offline.

                          In order of most to least important:


                          * Nookstudy support. If my history textbook was viewable on my Nook, I might actually read it. Even if it was missing notetaking and text-highlighting features and I had to pinch and zoom a lot, any support at all would be appreciated.


                          * App Store (Preferably the Android store, obviously)

                          * Word Document Editor/Office Suite - I could be a lot more productive as a person if I could create/edit Word Documents (and to a lessor extent, any Office files) on my Nook.

                           

                          * Calendar w/ To-Do List (and system notifications would be nice)

                           

                          * Gallery Update - Currently, the two ways to view images are:
                          (A) individually, one at a time, slideshow feature not working

                          (B) all in one big jumble, with a slideshow displaying each image on the SD card without them being particularly organized.

                          At the very least, users should be able view all the images in a particular folder on the SD card together as a slideshow. Basically, there needs to be a way to sort/filter images.

                           

                          * Dedicated Email App - This would be very nice. I love the Nook keyboard; it's so nice and big compared to my touch phone, and I want to use it!

                           

                          * Dictionary - If a notepad/Word editor were added, then a thesaurus would also be useful, and a spell check.


                          * PDF/Image Rotation - Sometimes PDF files, for example, are not oriented right to be read easily, and I am trying to turn the screen to read them sideways, and of course the orientation auto-corrects to be wrong again. It would be a nice if the PDF/image viewing on Nook also allowed for an option to rotate pages/images and save files with that correction.

                           

                          * Notepad

                           

                          * MP3 playlists

                           

                          * Ability to change background and text color on books

                           

                          * PDF/Office file bookmarks/search


                          * Video playback update - Thus far, I have not been able to make any video files play correctly on my Nook. If they played at all, their audio was missing.

                           

                          * Support for comic book (CBR/CBZ) and HTML files

                           

                          * Ability to add shortcuts to files, web bookmarks, and apps on the home page

                           

                          * Shelves on the home page

                           

                          * Battery charge from USB

                            I'd like full-screen, full-resolution MP4 video support.

                             

                            I'd buy one for my son if that were possible.

                                Is that something I can demo at the store so we can see what it looks like before I drop $250?

                                  i was thinking that u could fix some of the glitches like the rapid page turning, random highlighting,etc... also comic books have became popular to children and some teens and adults if the next update could include a comic book section with comic books like the starwars comics. thank you

                                  • 29. Re: Wish List for next Color Nook software upgrade?  Post what you want here.

                                    I'd love to be able to download directly from Overdrive, instead of having to download to my computer and then transfer each book. I tried to download the app for Android devices from the Overdrive site, and they have a nice big picture of the nook on their page, but the app can't actually be installed on the nook color.

                                     

                                    For the kids books, it would be nice if the "play" triangles would always show up on the "fold side" of the window when we enlarge text. As it is, the ones on the far left often just take us back a page instead of playing. And as anyone with a preschooler can tell you, this is great fuel for either a bedtime meltdown or a premium stall tactic, depending on the tiredness of the child. I'd also love it if each image that can be interacted with would flash quickly when the page first opens, or something like that, so we know where to touch and don't have to spend time testing each one, or just miss them completely.
