The latest e-reader news coming in reveal the Barnes & Noble e-reader software for the HTC HD2 has been provided with an update so that what was already a nice and comprehensive application has now acquired a more exciting and interesting outlook.
So what are the things that makes the entire package all the more sensational. Here they are:
Bookmarking has been made simple so that just a tap at the upper right corner of the page while still in reading view is what is required to bookmark a page. The Bookmarks menu also provides the facility to bookmark a page as well as to jump directly to a page already bookmarked. In any case, the presence of a small dog-ear turned corner at the upper right corner will indicate the page has been bookmarked.
Then there is a new ‘themes’ section that will allow you to select different modes like the reading mode or night mode, the latter being especially developed to facilitate reading books in the dark.
The ‘Book Overview’ section has been enhanced which now provides for a quick and easy access to contents and bookmarks while a new addition here is the ‘Lend to a friend’ feature that will let you send an email to a about a book that you may have found interesting. The book will show up in your friend’s ‘Lend Me’ section which now can be seen occupying the top left corner. However, the book loaning feature will remain disabled in the absence of any B&N e-reader friends or if the book itself is not marked for lending.
Among the other things that’s new in the updated version is the search feature along with the ‘Look up in Dictionary’ feature that can be invoked by tapping and holding on a word while in reading mode.
So if you are using the HTC HD2, there is a nice and pleasant surprise awaiting you from Barnes & Noble.
