Barnes and Noble has just revised their Nook Android App to mirror the same type of shopping experience as found on the Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 Nook line of tablets. Basically the entire shopping system has been revised, giving you more of a channel view approach. This makes it easier to find magazines, e-books, comics and all the other digital content B&N sells.
Likely the centerpiece of the fresh new app design is Nook Channels. Each Nook Channel is a collection of great reading content, both old and new. As a while, it is meant to give shoppers a the same type of online experience as you get when you visit a Barnes & Noble bookstore directly. This popular discovery feature is powered by Barnes & Noble’s breakthrough recommendation system, which combines bookseller knowledge with advanced algorithmic technology to present an endless shelf of relevant, personalized, and surprising choices beyond the bestsellers.
With the NOOK Reading App 4.0 for Android, readers also have more customization tools, including the ability to create profiles within the app and to organize favorite content by personal shelves. The updated app enables users to add a NOOK widget to the home screen of any Android phone or tablet, providing quick and easy access to NOOK reading content.
