Android phones get Barnes & Noble nook app: Lend ebooks to friends

Barnes & Noble now offering Nook app to Android OS smartphones

When it comes to the Amazon Kindle, you don’t necessarily have to buy the e-reader hardware in order to enjoy its library. There are all sorts of free mobile apps. The same thing is expanding with Barnes & Noble too with the introduction of the nook for Android app. As you can probably figure out, this Google Android app will grant you access to just about everything that the Barnes & Noble nook has to offer. You’ll need to have Android 1.6 or higher, but it means that you can shop for over a million titles including new releases and free eBooks.

The app — which works on devices like the Motorola Droid and HTC EVO 4G — will automatically sync to your last page read, presumably across the different platforms of reading if you have the app on your iPad or BlackBerry too. You can also change the font style and font size, flipping pages with a “flick of your finger.” The best part about, you can “lend” a book to your friends. The LendMe technology for sharing only supports eBooks, for newspapers and magazines, you’re going to have to pay the piper yourself.

To install the NOOK app, follow the steps below, if we had a QR code for it we’d give it to ya:

  1. Click the “Market” icon on your Android device.
  2. Select the search icon and enter “NOOK” in the search bar. Select the “NOOK for Android” app.
  3. Select “Install” on the app download page.
  4. Once the app is installed, you’ll be prompted to sign in with your BN.com account.
