I've been using this for months and have had great success with the recipes. The Shopping List feature is very handy. With the polypropylene sleeve on the NOOKcolor, it fit neatly on a cookbook stand. Since, whenever you're on the Epi App, the page doesn't go dark, you can just go to the recipe you want and follow it as slowly as you want. I've cooked several dishes in one day and never lost battery power. I like the app a lot, but I have 2 suggestions for enhancing it to perfection. First, allow users to input their own recipes. Second, find a way to allow users to print out shopping lists on their printers. Perhaps a printing app could be developed for the NOOKcolor

I'm hoping someone with authority reads these reviews. I liked this app when I first got it but am still waiting for my spring recipe choices to turn to summer. I recently updated my apps hoping to see some new epi choices...alas,,,,it's been neglected. I agree this app has potential if the developers would just listen to the users!

    No updates

    This app used to update regularly. It's been many months since the last one. Is the Nook market being ignored?

    App no longer works

    App tried to update itself and, now, is unusable. I see in other posts, that it's happening to everyone. I understand apps change/are scrubbed....but say so. Will be contacting B&N regarding a refund.

    Did not archive, since I'm new to the Nook Color, and did not know how. My original app still works, however, I would like the update

    Faulty Update

    Such a nice app. Now it won't install no matter how many times I archive and unarchive it. Please fix or refund our money!

    Update did not work

    I went to my app update page and there was no update for this app. I want my money back. I'm sick to death of looking at the mothers day stuff.

    Update

    This app is great but it would be far more useful if it were updated. As other reviewers have said, the front page should have changed multiple times by now; nobody cares about Mother's Day in July. I would use it more if the featured recipes actually changed each month or so.

    Interesting

    I found this application both difficult and frustrating to use. It's search function gives unexpected results. I still have't found a good way to return to the previous page. Save the 5 bucks and google it.

    Free on my lap top

    I have access to all of this, for free, on my lap top computer. I don't think it is worth $5 to have it on my Nook Color, really.

    QUESTION??????????

    Not exactly free on your phone

    The cost of 'free' apps is built in to the cost you pay for your plan each month. You do not pay for service on your nook each month, hence great apps are not free here. It kind of makes sense.

    Poor performance.

    Is very slow, and has hung several times requiring me to do hard reset on my nook.
