Nook for PC is an application created by Barnes and Noble and its users can benefit from increased functionality of the basic website. Actually, the tool manages to almost remove the need of accessing the main site, as many needs are covered within the options list provided for people. After they create an account with the website, people can easily use their login info to access the application and their profile will be remembered if they want to, so typing the email and password over and over again is not required.
Nook features a simple interface in which the primary element is the book shelf, where users can see all of the titles that are present in their library. The shelf view is not the only one available, although it is the most appealing. Users can also use a list view and arrange their books based on title, author, year of appearance or other factors. In order to provide an enhanced reading experience, the application features multiple customization options regarding the page’s aspect. A night mode with a dark background is also available and users can tweak it, too, in order to have the best experience.
Book ratings can be imported from the website and they will come along with reviews for a certain title. Users can also provide votes for the reviews, but also for the book itself. This way, they can contribute to the community. Bookmarks and different highlighting methods can be used in order to keep track of favorite paragraphs in a book. The last read page on the computer can be synced and users can continue reading from another device. Moreover, the shelf view can be better used if people create customized shelves based on genre or rating.
