I’m a little behind on this but a few weeks ago when we released the Windows 8.1 update, NOOK also released an update for their app that supports new features in Windows 8.1 like enhanced support for snap view and portrait orientation, the ability to import files from SkyDrive, enhanced search, improved library organization and even better in-app support for customers. If you’ve already updated your device to Windows 8.1, you likely already received this update through the Windows Store (app updates now happen automatically in the background).
Here is a full list of what’s new with the latest NOOK for Windows 8.1 app update:
NOOK for Windows 8.1 also supports signing in with your Microsoft account. And it also supports interactive magazines – a recently added feature!
You can learn more about NOOK for Windows 8.1 by clicking here. And if you don’t have NOOK installed, download it here from the Windows Store.
Do you have any good book recommendations? I love reading about history. Sound off in comments with your recommendations!
When I try to download Nook here in Australia I get an error message saying that it is has been removed and is no longer available for purchase from the Windows Store.
abm I am aware of the method used on the supersite but feel that it is MS responsibility to provide the ISO to everyone. I would prefer to do clean installs with windows 8.1. I have a few win 8 licenses(I bought when they were $40). and this cannot be done with an 8.1 ISO as Microsoft in there infinite wisdom wont use the 8 key for 8.1 installs. Until MS provide ISO downloads to everyone and allow the 8.0 keys to work with 8.1 the rest of my PCs and my sisters 5 PCs will remain on windows 7.
Hi Brandon, thanks for this. Unfortunately, the font-handling in the Nook app appears to still be broken on high pixel density displays, such as that on the Surface 2 and Surface Pro. On these displays, the fonts are scaled, oversized, and fuzzy. At the default font setting, text on Surface 2 is rendered ridiculously large; you have to choose the smallest font setting for an acceptable experience, but the text is still rendered and fuzzy. I've given feedback to the Nook team, but they don't seem to fully appreciate the problem. I believe the fonts are inappropriately being scaled by 150%, similar to desktop scaling on these devices.
sapaleale, you mean this technet.microsoft.com/.../windows-8.aspx Its the evaluation copy.
If you are looking for upgrading from Windows 8, here is the method of getting ISO winsupersite.com/.../windows-81-tip-download-windows-81-iso-windows-8-product-key
You would need to download only once.
But if you are upgrading from 7 and looking to purchase Windows 8.1, then you can order DVD or download ISO windows.microsoft.com/.../upgrade-from-windows-7-tutorial
It would be good if I could update some other PCs to 8.1 but I don't feel like having to download 2-3gig 5 times. Until an ISO is released(officially) it will be only my old laptop that will be running 8.1 every other PC is staying on 7.
