Now that Google Play has been added to the Nook HD/HD+ lines, any app you download from the Google Play Store will now appear in your Nook library and provide the option to add to your Home screen. Just access Google Play, search keyword "Google" and you'll find a bunch of Google produced apps, including "Google Play Magazines." If the magazines you are trying to open come from Google Play, you'll want to download this app and add it to your Home screen. It works like a charm. I have Google Play Magazines, Books, Maps, Voice, and Keyboard all working beautifully on my Nook HD+. B&N magazines will open in the standard reader the Nook device comes with so I can't imagine that's what you are talking about.
