I'd like the nook "library" reader app bundled with nook color to be as good as the standalone app, or else for the standalone app to also be available.
- the standalone app actually supports deleting books. The library app only seems to support pushing books to a shelf. Perhaps you can then delete the shelf and the books with it? I don't know, and the older woman at the store I tried to figure this out with couldn't get the BN staffer to show her a way to do it, either. She (and I) are both frustrated with the amount of free things we don't want that are pushed onto our devices.
- the "library" needs to support fullscreen. If it does support it, it's not obvious how. Pinch zooming in it would be cool, but that's apparently hard.
- the "library" needs a real night mode - the current one is not as satisfying as most night modes are.
I would like to see a few things as well.
- Get the wish list to work so that my nook and nook color share the wish list
- Start recognizing a series and group those books together automatically and in the right order.
- Improved email support (understand that is coming).
- PDF support like many...don't understand why this doesn't exist since the Adobe reader for android is way better and it is already written for android.
I think most of the things on my wishlist have been mentioned by others already. But one thing I'd really like them to do is make the whole reading experience on the nook more like reading an actual book. It would be cool if you could tap the screen and see the page turn. Maybe even with an optional papery sound effect. And it would be great if your "shelves" had a spine view option (with the title/author running downwards) so that you could see your books lined up neatly next to each other like the real thing. Also, a customizable library feature where you could choose from several different styles like tradional wooden looking shelves, or a more modern metal look. Something a little spiffier than those plain white shelves it has now. I recently switched from regular books to an ereader (mainly due to the space issues that come with adding new stuff to my already massive library) and find that while there are a lot of advantages to ereading, some of the fun and charm is just missing. I think stuff like this would help old school booknerds like me bridge the gap between the printed word and the new technology and ultimately draw in a lot of new customers.
-better pdf support like bookmarks and highlighting
-ability to pick page bakground color, or page theme (it is a color ereader after all)
-an app for jotting down misc notes, thoughts
-and email app would be really cool
1. A contacts app that will sync fully, not just email addresses. Just like the one on my Droid. Just because there is no phone on this device dosen't mean I might not want to find a number or address.
2. A calander app that will sync with my gmail calander. I can't get the current one to do that.
3. A basic note taking app.
6. Kindle app.
Is that something I can demo at the store so we can see what it looks like before I drop $250?
You can go to the store and they will be happy to demo the NC. If you want to see it with the upcoming update - you will have to wait until the update is released - then when you demo that's what you will see.
I would like to be able to choose the color of the highlight I want and keep it instead of having to change on each word.
