Angry Birds Leads NOOK Color Apps to 1 Million Downloads

Just a few weeks back, Barnes & Noble’s NOOK Color picked up a software update that added support for games and applications, turning the eReader into a tablet of sorts.  No longer just a book and magazine reader, the 7-inch Android-based device would be an affordable option for people looking for a (lite) tablet experience.  But would NOOK Color users be interested in apps?  You bet they would.  Three weeks after announcing the 1.2 update, Barnes & Noble has issued a press release touting one million downloads.  

Would you be surprised to learn that Angry Birds is the top paid app?  We didn’t think so.  The other best-selling apps in the B&N store are Drawing Pad, Solitaire, Aces Jewel Hunt and Astraware Mahjong.  As for free options, Fliq owns three of the top five downloads in Fliq Calendar, Fliq Notes, and Fliq Tasks.  The other two are Pulse and NOOK Word of the Day.  If you own a NOOK Color, you’d be wise to check out the available apps as new titles are added all the time!
