This app has its uses, but provides no way to adjust settings. The app starts up and runs in the background, connected to wifi, when the Nook is booted, and is therefore a waste of resources, since I have only used the thing once in the months I have had it. There is no way to stop this happening; one must simply be aware of it and immediately use the App Killer app to stop it wasting memory and power. Furthermore, since the app's greedy merchant developers ensured that the app gives absolutely no indication that it starts and runs before one needs it, one would never know unless one happens to have something like App Killer to monitor their own device, which they bought and paid for and own, and therefore have a right to have complete control over.

This app will be spared my wrath for now, in hopes that the developers will provide the means to control the app's behavior, including startup and internet settings. If the developers fail to provide this functionality, and fail to alter the app's description to include this important information about their app starting without permission and running in the background data mining (as an electronics engineer I have already studied the app's behavior on a binary level) and wasting resoources, it will be removed as a pest app, and I will proceed to agressively market against it.
