    Wishlist for version 1.5

      I guess I'll get the ball rolling on this one :smileyhappy:

       

      I. Fix the "N" button issue! It's mechanical which means it has a finite lifespan vs. a touch or swipe.

       

      2. Don't break ADE. Having to register a new device put lots of us (me included) over the maximum device allowance.

       

      Please feel free to add to the list!

          How about make it consistent with the Nook Tablet - Gingerbread instead of Froyo . . .

            • Ability in the Email app to either (a) select all items in my current list with one command/button, or (b) empty trash with one command/button.
            • Word/phrase context menu in magazines, like it is in eBooks and PDFs (touch/hold a word and get a menu for find, lookup, etc). Along with that, ability to swipe/select the text
            • In any of the materials, when swiping a phrase, then getting context menu, the "find" or "lookup" should lookup the whole phrase. In version 1.3, it just does the first word. I haven't tried it yet in 1.4 so not sure they fixed it yet.
            • A resync button for the Contacts app. Right now in 1.4.1, I have to unlink then relink my Google account to refresh the contacts if I change them on Google. In addition, I'd like the ability to edit and categorize the contacts on the NC like I can do online.
            • A "backup to PC" or "sync with PC" to save personal settings (shelves, sideloaded material) in the event of need to re-reg the unit. This would avoid having to do all the resetup by hand. Since support seems to offer un-reg, re-reg so often as a problem work-around, I think this feature would be a nice consolation. :smileywink:

                They did add this feature in NookBook in 1.4.1 (don't know about other materials). I am really happy about this addition - it is something I will use a lot.

                    Hey, yeah, I should have checked this one before listing it. Thanks! And I did check it with PDF and it works there as well.

                     

                    I would still like to see the word/phrase context menu in magazines. :smileyhappy:

                  ...After four versions, I'm still looking for a descent calendar app. I'd still like some way to mark the books I have already assigned to a shelf. Also, along those lines, some way to mark which books I've read, and when.

                      Since I started using Google Calendar, I find the web browser access isn't bad. But I also think it would be nice if there were a dedicated calendar app that sync'ed with Google Calendar, and have it be integrated with the NC so I get notifications, etc.

                      Are you able to fix it so that if you purchase a book on your PC that is on your Tablet wishlist that it also is removeable from the wishlist? This drives me nuts!

                        Ok here my list : 1- It's VERY important to fix this damned app installing problem. I have been chatting with experts on site and they told me they will fix it in new update. Apps are being downloaded but not finishing the installing, it downloads again and again. 2- Other app problem is, most app i have archived can't be installed again. Fix it too! 3- I want to look up words meaning in different languages. I want to buy built-in dictionary. Let us buy. Different apps annoying on reading. 4- Make a new browser. Nook browser is better than others but it has no tab. If you make a browser with tab that will be great. If there is a browser without tab its only nook one. 5- I want basic apps! Youtube app, Google maps, Facebook, WhatsApp and others. Talk to developers and make them add their apps. There is no youtube similar app, develope it. 6- Let me change keyboard. Turkish keyboard i need. 7- Fix the power off problem. I think you should make a power off symbol so we can tap, and confirming necessary. This button doesnt work most of times. 8- Let us install apps to SD Card, this will fix many problems. 9- n button is being used too much in this version 1.4.3 . I hope its strong enough, otherwise get back our other symbol. 10- Add some racing apps . Like Raging Thunder 2. Or Asphalt 5. You should connect with developers. Or develop your own apps. Thanks!
