What's NewWeâ€™ve rebuilt the NOOK app with a new design for the library, an updated reader for books, magazines, and newspapers, and improved syncing.
* NOOK Newsstand for iPad, iPhone 4/4S, and iPod touch 4th generation with retina display:
-- Read an amazing assortment of the most popular magazines & newspapers from Us Weekly and Cosmopolitan to National Geographic and USA Today
-- Our exclusive Article Viewâ„¢ puts the focus on the content as you easily page through rich, full-color issues.
* Improved sync for last page read, notes, highlights, and bookmarks
* Redesigned Custom Themes: Choose from millions of colors for text, links, pages, and highlights to create your own themes.
* NOOK is now a Universal app
-- Itâ€™s the NOOK for iPhone and NOOK for iPad apps bundled into one.
Before installing the update, we recommend that you sync bookmarks, highlights, and notes. However, custom themes and ratings will not be saved. After updating, you will need to recreate your custom themes and ratings will not be available.
Due to changes for improved syncing, this update will require you re-download your titles on your device. A current default credit card on your Barnes & Noble account is needed for successful book downloads.
This update requires iOS 4.0+ and works on iPad, iPad 2, iPhone 4S/4/3GS/3G and iPod touch (2nd generation and above).
- The invalid serial number error issue has been resolved for Verizon iPhone 4 customers who have iOS 4.2.10. We recommend Verizon iPhone 4 users with iOS 4.2.10 un-install and re-install the NOOK app.
- If you are experiencing difficulty downloading books, please log in to Barnes & Noble website and verify that the credit card associated with your account is current and has been selected as the default credit card.
