Barnes & Noble has finally debuted its official Nook Video app for iOS. I say "finally" because the release of said app comes nearly a year after the Nook Video service was launched along with the Nook HD and Nook HD+ tablet e-reader and media players. Well, as I always say in spite of unmet expectations, better late than never. Competing against Amazon Instant Video and, of course, Apple's iTunes, the Nook Video app lets you watch movies and TV shows from Nook Video right on your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad. The app comes with the following key features:
Compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad running iOS 5.0 or later, Nook Video is available now in the App Store for free. Of course, Nook for iOS remains available in the App Store for reading books, magazines, newspapers, and comics purchased from the Nook Store. In addition to iOS, Barnes & Noble has launched its Nook Video app for Android devices and Roku streaming players. [gallery link="file" order="DESC"]
