You might recall from Monday about the whole reading app massacre, and how Apple forced Amazon, B&N, Kobo, et al to remove the links to their ebookstores.
One of the stranger parts of this tale was the Nook iPad app. It didn’t get updated on Monday; instead it vanished from iTunes. Barnes & Noble told us later that the app would return with an update; it was going to get support for periodicals.
Update: The Nook iPad app is back.
That’s great news, but the app is still missing.We’re now rapidly approaching the end of business day on Friday and there’s no sign of when the app will return.
I’ve checked with B&N and didn’t get a reply. (That’s the norm for B&N, actually.) Does anyone know why the app is still missing? I’d love to hear from you.
