This is a nice little app for those book enthusiasts out there. It is very clean and usable. The only time I would see myself ever wanting to actually purchase a book from this is if I was in a random place without my laptop and wifi and absolutely had to get that book right then and there. It is also nice for browsing books and then buying them later from the computer.
When you first open up the app, you are taken to the “discover” screen where you can browse bestsellers, new releases and recommendations. Beyond that you can search, find stores and view your cart. The search feature works just like it would via a computer. The location finder is cool because it uses your current location and tells you where the nearest Barnes & Noble store is and then you can get a map to the store from your current location. Once you find a book and are in it’s detail page you can read an overview, read reviews and even find it and reserve it in a store, which is a pretty neat feature. You can find your book at midnight and have it ready for you when the store opens the next day.
4 of 5 – A really useful app – if you are a book enthusiast.
