    An app for reading your Barnes & Noble books

    • Some books are available for free
    • You can save your favorite books

    • You can't buy books through the app
    • You need to sign in with a Barnes & Noble account
    • You can access only from the United States

    "Let's read!"


    Nook is an app for reading the books you've bought at the Barnes & Noble site. It works perfectly and it's very easy to use. If you're used to buy eBooks from that site, it's perfect for you.


    You can download some books for free. Also, you have the option of saving your favorite books and read them later.

    The UI and the design are excellent. The reader is perfect, it's easy to use and you can change the font and highlight the passages you've liked.


    There are only a few books available for free at the app, you'll have to buy or download the rest from the Barnes & Noble site, as there's no option of buying books through the app. Besides, you need to sign in with a Barnes & Noble account, but you can't create one through the app, so there's nothing you can really do with the app only, you'll always need to use the website.

    This app is only accessible from the United States, so you won't be able to use if you're not in the States' Store.
