Offer a subscription please...

I love nook and every thing about it but sadly can not participate in nook Audiobooks until a subscription service is offered or at least a discount on audiobooks if the Ebook is purchased as well. Offer one or both of those and I’ll jump in with both feet!

Not up with technology

I have been with B&N for years and years. They have not kept up with the times and technology. What works on this app one day does not work the next. I purchased the hardcover 5 book set of the Game of Thrones and the first 3 audiobooks. The first 3 audiobooks I downloaded successfully but not without issues. On your iPhone you have to purchase it with the nook app then download it in the audiobook app. Get it together people; it should be all in one app. I now am ready to download the audiobook 4 and 5. Unfortunately that is no longer available. I spoke to their support twice now and no one seems to know what happened or why. Finally I got “it’s not available for purchase right now, wait a few days and try again”. REALLY. Delete, delete delete.

The app is fine if all you want to ever do is press play and listen and then press stop. I’d like to be able to leave a bookmark where I left off (in case I fall asleep while listening), set a sleep timer, and see how far along in the book I am. Currently the app only gives you how far along in the chapter you are. None of these requests are outlandish - audible makes it happen, and I’m really regretting spending $45 on two audiobooks from Nook Audio. I actually might end up buying them a second time on audible so I don’t spend 35 hours of my life annoyed at this app. Nook, you can do better! This app is equivalent to a VCR in the generation of Netflix.
