I was checking the database for one of our apps (which searches Nook Apps) and found these today.
You can also get our app, Apps Buddy - http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/app-deals-app-search-new-apps-new-games-game-deals-apps-games-buddy-5ivedom/1114015368?ean=2940043926067, and then search for 'Mobifusion'. It'll show you all the apps. Then you can buy what you like from within our app itself - it opens up a B&N window.
I was excited to see this but like you, I couldn't find mention of how to access the ebook either.
I'm very interested in such things, but I'm surprised they are offered as apps developed by non BN developers. I was under the impression that BN didn't allow the selling of content (ebooks and audiobooks) that would be in competition with BN itself? Though I suppose since it is only one content per app and sold within the store, BN would be making money off that sale.
If so, this would open up the app store to content like Calibre Companion or an app that 5ivedom had talked about developing in another forum that would also address library management. The thought was that such apps would be shot down as they would allow non BN content to be opened on the devices rather than simply managing content. Not read within the app, only opened within the app for reading on the stock reader. Though Calibre on the PC does allow for purchasing from BN and other venders, the
Calibre app only manages the tranfer of content and management of that content on the device.
Am I just dreaming or is this a real possiblity?
A different alternative (and a free one) would be to download the Overdrive Media app and search through your local library for audiobooks. The selection is limited to what your library offers, but if you're not too picky you might find something worth listening to.
All you need is a library card and a pin number (which you set up) to download audiobooks as well as any ebook. You have two weeks, I believe, to read/listen and then it will be automatically returned to your library. No late fees!
