NookColor Does Apps! (Win $50 BN Gift Card)

CONTESTS | | May 19, 2011 at 11:59 pm

CONTEST CLOSED!

Congratulations Nicole!

I have already shared with you why I love the NookColor about its wonderful characteristics that make it a versatile e-reader and I have shared with you how it has changed from the Nook reader. The biggest leap recently in changes is the addition of apps. So while I normally turn to my NookColor for reading I do admit turning to my iPad for apps so this was a huge feature for us. Of course the 1st app I had to download had to be Angry Birds and I was not disappointed. Imagine that vibrancy I mentioned in the NookColor and then imagine playing apps with it.

So off course I was excited to try out more apps. We also loved the Drawing Pad app and with my daughters both loving drawing this was a winner. Even my younger 4 year old who normally throw a tantrum and her inability to keep up with other apps loves the Drawing Pad app (must be that whole left-handedness -creativity thing).

There are several other changes like the increased animation in children’s media and the fact that you can also play videos within a book. Of course the “social” aspect has been a bigger focus too. Along with the already in place fabulous idea of “lending” books the now “friends” characteristic will certainly enable more sharing especially among bookworms.

So now you can win $50 from Barnes and Noble which you can use towards the Nook or NookColor e-Reader or you can fatten up you library of ebooks, magazines, newspapers, or apps!
