NOOK App for Android Gets Tablet Optimization, Adds Magazine Support

An update is available today for the official Barnes & Noble Nook application for Android, adding new, tablet-friendly features.  Designed to take advantage of larger screens, the v2.6.1 release offers larger text options and allows for magazines and periodicals on 7-inch displays and higher.  This opens up the door to more than 140 NOOK Newsstand titles including Rolling Stone, ESPN The Magazine, Newsweek, and Popular Science as well as many popular newspapers (USA Today, The Los Angeles Times, The Washington Post and The Chicago Tribune).

Ironically, your Android tablet became more NOOK Color-like a few weeks after the NOOK Color became more tablet-like.  We’ve been playing with both experiences now and they are awesome either way.  Download NOON for Android for free on any devices running 2.1 or higher.
