Did You Know You Can Read Nook and Kindle Books On Your iPhone?
I just got the Nook iPhone Application so I can access my Nook e-books from my iPod Touch. It took a few seconds to download the App, and within a minutes, my whole Barnes and Noble e-library was available on my iPod. The Nook iPhone Application has many of the same features the Nook E-reader has, like being able to increase or decrease the font size. It's pretty cool. I thought the text would be too small to read comfortably, but actually, it's not bad at all. It will be perfect in those situations when I get stuck waiting somewhere unexpectedly, and need something to occupy my time. And the thing I like about the Nook app, is that the e-library synchronizes across all the devices I read on. So if I read a few chapters on my iPod or PC at lunch, later on, when I get home and pick up my Nook, it's going to know what page I left off on.
It's much easier and more comfortable to read e-books on the Nook or Kindle because that's what they were made for, but there is one thing I can do on the iPod I can't do on the Nook or Kindle--I can read in the dark. It's back lit, so if I'm in a low light situation, it's a perfect substitute for the Nook.
I've talked a lot about the Nook, because that's what I have, but Kindle has the same app for iPhone, and it works the same way with your Amazon e-book library. Nook Apps and Kindle Apps are also available for iPad, Android, and Blackberry--all are free downloads. You can also get Nook and Kindle Apps for your PC or Mac.
