    What's fixed (or not) in v1.4.3

    DeanGibson

      The purpose of this thread is not to rag on B&N for what is not fixed (nor is it to address desired features that are not included) in v1.4.3.  We already have more than a few threads devoted to that!

       

      The purpose is to list items (ie, existing features) that are fixed or not in v1.4.3.  Obviously some "bugs" are a matter of interpretation, but let's keep it reasonable, so that users can decide if the update is worth it (either for rooters or early downloaders).

       

      Not fixed:

       

      • On-screen keyboard key-click (clicks about 80% of the time).

       

      Fixed:

       

      • In the "NT HIdden Settings" app, the debugging options are only listed once (of primary interest to rooters).
      • The "Shop" page seems redesigned and much less cluttered.

       

      Added:

       

      • "2 page PDF display in landscape" option.
      • Add and check Gift Cards.

       

      Remember, this is for the Nook Tablet.  Someone else is free to start an equivalent thread for the Nook Color.

          With the update, paragraph/punctuation markers and random numbers are showing up in the book descriptions under "view details" on both the "shop" and "library" sections, making it difficult to read the blurbs. I'm seeing this on about 80 per cent of the books I've checked.

            Before when clicking BUY on a  Harry Potter listing it would direct you to open the browser and visit Pottermore yourself.  Now the SHOP actually opens the appropriate Pottermore page in the browser for you when you click BUY.

              Newly broken:

               

              • Once an app is downloaded, the download icon at the bottom keeps flashing until reboot.  I don't know if this is a rooted-specific problem.

                I second what laurieb52 said. My page turns are all messed up too. I do not use that animate page turns and have to keep going into the reader settings and check and uncheck the animate page turns. It lasts while I'm reading the book, but once I go to do something else like surf the internet or use an app, it goes back to animating the page turns. Both my tablet and NC have updated to 1.43 and both have the same problem.

                  Does anybody else find it amusing that BN - a BOOK company - puts out a reader 'update' with such an obvious and easy to find bug in it? Granted, there are quite a few places to test changes in, but it sounds to me like nobody actually USED the applications before they were released. Since there are no advertised release dates, the only timeline was management imposed, and could have slipped a couple weeks to get things right. Or maybe I'm just more sensitive to these things because I do them for a living...

                    And am I just expecting too much, or should there be more real enhancements in the time there was between 1.4.2 and 1.4.3? I realize that BN isn't a software company, but if they' re outsourcing development, they need to be looking for a new contractor. Of course if Microsoft is pushing them to Windows 8 now, I guess we're lucky to get anything at all in Android-land.

                      My Living Language Essentials Spanish 1 now works - before the update it would not download. Thanks BN.

                        My NT just got the update a couple days ago.  Not sure whether this is a fix or a bug, but in certain apps the screen no longer times out.  Sometimes it's convenient but other times I'm afraid that it may be too big a drain on the battery if I walk away with a PDF open and the Nook does not shut itself off.

                          I just ran into something else apparently fixed, or at least improved, in 1.4.3. With the two previous releases, my NT would detect the public wifi router in the lobby of my office building, but never connect. Now, it still hangs on 'getting IP address', rejects the connection, but then retries and immediately connects. Weird, but much better, since we aren't allowed to get on public email systems from company PCs, and can't use wifi in the office. Saves lugging my laptop in when I expect an important email.
