17MB?? With no option to install on SD. Are you kidding me? Download page claims 5MB, but it is really 17MB+. Even 5MB would still be too big for what it is, an ebook reader for crying out loud, but 17MB?! Come on. What could possibly need that much code in an ebook reader. Kindle app is 1.7MB, Aldiko is 1.2MB.

No night mode. Screen doesn't stay on. No QVGA support. Doesn't save progress on a book when exiting and reloading. Font choices are limited, even the smallest size is too big. The store loads the mobile web site (they couldn't figure out how to do this within the app with 17MB to work with??)

Feels like alpha quality to me, not even worthy of a beta.

Can someone in the US upload the APK somewhere? The full Nook device apparently works in Europe -- though not directly sold here -- but the app is apparently only available in the US market. I'm guessing that once installed it would work just fine, though.
