Barnes & Noble’s new tablets, the Nook HD and HD+, have hit the UK, and right on cue, the bookseller’s app for smartphones has arrived too. Download the free e-reader app and you can keep all your books and magazines in the cloud, accessible from anywhere. Will this kill the Kindle?
Much like Amazon’s Kindle app, which is available on just about every platform you care to shake a stick at, the Nook app for iPhone and Android phones and tablets – launched in the UK today – lets you buy and choose from more than 2.5million titles, read on one device, and pick up where you left off on another. It’s free, and runs on Android phone running version 2.1 or up, and every iOS device from the iPhone 3GS upwards.
Barnes & Noble’s Nook app tries to stand out from the crowd with a big focus on magazines and comics – which you can view pane by pane. Your purchases will also run on the Nook e-reader and Nook HD and HD+ Android-powered tablets – we’ll have full reviews of those for you shortly
