What is it about?
Nook is the iOS version of Barnes & Noble’s popular Nook eReader, and it offers one of the most customizable reading experiences in one of the least customizable apps. The app’s best feature is its ability to totally control page formatting: readers can choose between publisher defaults or customize fonts, size, spacing, page colors, text colors, highlight colors, link colors, and justification. In fact, your customizations can even be saved as a theme to use again! Unfortunately, the Nook app (unlike the physical devices) does not appear to be able to read books not purchased in the Barnes and Noble store, which significantly undermines its value— except to those who own or have owned a Nook.
