    Separate Wishlists

    bklvr896

      I'm reading the HD user guide and I get to the section on wishlists.  In a note, it says:

       

      The Wishlist on your Nook is separate from the Wishlist on the BN.com website.  Your Wishlist on BN.com can include paper books and other items, as well as Nook books, magazines and newspapers for your Nook.  The Wishlist on your Nook includes only items that you can purcahse for your Nook...

       

      So, did someone forget to the tell the developers and the writers of the user guide, that there's a separate wishlist on the BN.com solely for items you can purchase on the Nook and that's the only wishlist you can add Nookbooks to on the website?  Did they fire all the developers of the N1E, who apparently knew this, as that wishlist synced with the one on the BN site. 

       

      I realize this is an ongoing discussion, but I still don't get why ANYONE, would think I (we) would want separate wishlists on the website, and whatever devices we own? 

       

      Oh, and why can't you get to the Nookbook wishlist on the mobile site?????

       

      Sometimes I think they want to make it more difficult to purchase books, although I can't imagine why.

          It is a strange decision. I suspect that the book website wishlist uses the books database used by the website. And the Nook wishlist uses the API used by the Shop App on the Nook.

           

          If they have those on separate systems, then it would explain why they don't sync them.

              Except the NIE synced them or rather, I don't think theb N1E actually stored it on the Nook.  I should get mine out and see.  Good thing I rarely shop from the Nook.

                Except that they used to sync them, back when B&N was more concerned with readers than the technology race.  If they could sync them before, why can't they sync them now?

                    Not sure.

                     

                    If it worked on the earlier Nook then no reason it shouldn't work on the newer Nooks.

                     

                    Perhaps B&N just hasn't gotten to it on their list of 'features to add'.

                        That's optimistic, but I suspect that's not the case, as it's been missing since the release of the NC.

                            I guess they haven't figured out yet how to differentiate wish lists between the models that play read aloud books, graphic intensive magazines, etc., versus those that don't, like N1, Nook Simple and Nook for PC. You would think, at a minimum, the online wish list would correspond with the latter 3, not just N1.
