Not too Impressed with Nook App
I recently downloaded the Nook App, which was really exciting since I now have access to B&N, Kindle, Kobo(on my way to research that forum next), and Sony. However, I've had alot of issues with the B&N app. I have had to delete and re-download the app probably 5 times now because my library wouldn't load. I got that straightened out...I think. Then, yesterday I downloaded one of their freebies and today whenever I try to open the book, the app itself opens, and it starts to open the book (the little circle thing is spinning in the top left corner), and the the app shuts down completely. Anyone else experience this? I really want to like this app because I want access to B&N ebook, but if it's gonna be like this everytime I try to download anything, forget it.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
OH, I don't have the latest software version on my iPod (another issue in itself and my computer that hates cooperating!), could that be the problem?

I tried using the Nook app on my 3G iPhone and all it did is crash. I ended up going back to the previous version of the B&N reader which actually works.
To be honest, I don't think B&N did much testing of Nook before they released it for the iPhone/Touch.

The thing I disliked about the nook app was the dishonest "14 day free trials" offered for magazines and newspapers. I added a few to try, and my credit card was charged immediately! As soon as I saw the charges I canceled the orders!

Don't have the same problem as yours (have about 30 book from B&N and all of them downloaded correctly), but I too am unimpressed with Nook app, mainly because:
1. It's slow as hell
2. They bring some new font, but doesn't look good for me
3. The UI doesn't feel "right".
Point 2 and 3 is subjective, but I still prefer their Barnes & Noble eReader app. Maybe they does this whole Nook app thing to increase their Nook brand recognition just like Amazon does with Kindle everywhere.

Once I got past the crashing (by re-installing, but they have supposedly fixed this in an update), I'm pretty happy with it.

Do any of you have problems with "blank pages"? I can read at most 3 pages in a row before I have to go to "Details" and press the button underneath the book cover to get the text of a blank page. I'm then OK for 2-3 more pages before the next blank page.
