Yes, there are two separate pieces of software that are nearly identical, one for eReader.com and Fictionwise, and a separate one for B&N. The B&N one has a couple of extra features, like the ability to look up a selected word on wikipedia, but otherwise the software is essentially identical. I have both on my iPhone. You can't access a B&N accoung with the eReader.com program, and you can't access your eReader or Fictionwise accounts with the B&N one. It's maddening.
