Nook for Android Updated

Barnes & Noblenook itunes answered one of my open questions earlier this week with a new update for their Android app.According to my sources, the app now enables readers to browse and sample ebooks without an account. It will also now ping you with notifications about deals in the Nook Store, reading recommendations and more.

The browsing option is an uncommon feature among reading apps, but the notifications s not. Kobo has implemented a similar feature on their Android tablets. (This can be annoying if you don't buy from Kobo.)

And finally thanks to the update the app also now supports annual subscriptions. This last is a rather odd feature to highlight, given the Nook Store has supported subscriptions for at least 3 years now.

You can find the app in Google Play.

Changelog:

• Start reading with just 3 taps. Browse and sample books free before creating an account.
• Get NOOK notifications about great deals, reading recommendations & more.
• Newsstand savings—set up an annual subscriptions to select magazines and lock-in one low rate for an entire year.
• Bug fixes

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader:"I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
