Barnes and Noble has updated its official iOS app today that brings digital comics and HD Magazines. The new high resolution magazines look amazing, but are only available on the 3rd and 4th generation models of the iPad. The company has also implemented better organization for your newspapers and magazines. Finally, B&N has not only added comic support, but also brought over its ZoomView technology, which lets you isolate specific panels.
The new update for the Nook iOS app will be welcome for people who like to read content other than ebooks. It is important to note that you can’t buy content within the app, because B&N did not want to give Apple a cut out of every digital sale. Instead, you will have to buy your comics and magazines from the web, and have them synced directly to your account.
