Hi everyone! Ash here. This app is pretty handy if you’re on a road trip and you’re not the one driving. (We strongly discourage reading while you drive. Reading while you drive can have serious consequences.) Then again, you could just bring your Nook, but what if you don’t want to? Or, what if you did bring your Nook, but it’s out of battery? (Truly a horror!) This free app is pretty great. Any book you have bought on your Barnes and Noble account that you want to read can be downloaded to this app, and you can read it, just like that. (Let it be noted that an internet connection is needed for both downloading the app and downloading the book.)
Personally, I really enjoyed this app because there are some places I’d rather not take my e-reader. I’m a really forgetful person, and I sometimes have to call my cell phone with the home phone to figure out where my cell phone is (in the house).
This is a great app for many reasons. First of all, when you read a book on your phone using the app, the page numbers stay the same as on the Nook. Sure, page 15 might consist of two “pages” on the nook and five “pages” on the phone, but you never have to do complicated math to figure out how many pages you read if p = n(3.549) or something crazy like that. (Of course, that’s just a random equation I made up. If you’re really a math geek, go ahead and figure out the equation, then comment below and we’ll test it out. If it works, you get the best thing ever: a free Nook app. 😉 )
Another reason I liked this app was that it was easy to use. Some apps have complicated sign-ins, random buttons, crazy messages that pop up… This app has none of that. It was simple and easy to sign in, which you only have to do once. There are no random buttons, which is a relief. No crazy messages pop up anywhere.
Anyways, this is a great app, but it may not be for all you die-hard Kindle lovers. Those of you who are may be hoping I’m going to write a review about the Kindle app–unfortunately for you, I’m not. But if you love the Amazon Kindle (or any other e-reader) so much, feel free to mail in a review.
Hope you like!
