Nope..you can sideload apps via adb. And for the person that mentioned Mantano, I've been using it on my HD+ for about 10 days now and it mostly works. The top of the Mantano menu bar is partially covered by the Nook's title/status bar, so it can be tough to hit certain buttons. But the bottom toolbar while reading a book is fine. Sometimes Mantano has trouble resuming if you exit then try to open it again. Sometimes it force closes, and other times I have to kill it. But despite that, I still use it as my main reader on the HD+
