Barnes & Noble just invited me into that beta-testing group I told you about earlier this week, and guess what I found?
B&N has a new mobile app with a new browsing experience. It is called Browsery and is described in Google Play as "your ultimate destination for book conversation and discovery. Connect with fellow readers with the tap of a button."
B&N said in the email that Browsery was "a crowd-powered book recommendations platform to help readers find a book or discover something unexpected."
I haven't been able to do more than look at the app, though; it wouldn't accept my password (that's par for the course for beta testing). But I have spent a few minutes in the app, and I'd say it is less of a reading app than a social app. You can ask questions, answer them, and also receive notifications of current activity.
Have you tried it? What do you think?
