    Needs improvement, as of Jan '12

    I was hoping this would be more refined, since it is so costly. The pros: view full web pages, not mobile versions, flash, a full-function Adobe pdf reader, OpenOffice. It has great potential to mimic everything a desktop can do. But there are cons: it can only be viewed in landscape mode, scrolling on web pages is very slow and choppy, webpages look slightly blurred, no video or sound. I haven't yet figured out how to use most of the apps from Google Chrome that I added (Angry Birds, Fruit Ninja, lots of popular free apps). Many free apps are available through AlwaysOnPc, by opening Google Chrome within it. But so many apps require things like arrow keys or don't fit the screen properly, so that they are unusable. I'm very frustrated because the potential is huge and I get on expecting to do something, but it is too slow and too many things don't function properly. I have only briefly tried the OpenOffice, but it looks great. I'd love if someone else could give pointers on making better use of AlwaysOn. For what it can do right now, I regret spending the money. I can only hope for big improvement with updates.

    Review

    This was well worth the money. It turns your crippled BN tablet into a real tablet. There are so many apps included I can't begin to mention them all. You do have to have wifi for it to run though.

    Frustrated

    I am not happy with the app at all. Very diffucult to use, especially the mouse-like function. Apps dont work well or you cant see the whole page which is highly frustrating when playing games. Needs the touch controls that a tablet is for instead of the mouse controls. I really wish i wouldnt have paid for it and waited for more reviews to have made a better decision. Looking forward to updates or something. Maybe i just dont know how to use it right, but for now, only 2 stars. :(

    Do Not Recommend!

    I purchased this app and cannot get past the handshake opening. I find this worthless on my Nook Tablet. I tried customer support and they are no help. I originally purchased the app for Java; however, found out there is no Java on this app.

    Sound Like a Beta--More Reviews Please

    From the very few reviews, this sounds like beta software. I'm afraid to spend the money. Those of you who have it, please write more reviews.

    Overall this is a good app. it comes with a lot of games/program

    Overall this is a good app. it comes with a lot of games/programs, but on my nook color it is a bit laggy. and the mouse control function 
    is pretty easy to use once you get used to it.

    Purchased & never showed up on my app list

    Total waste of money. Cannot say much more since I never got to try it on my Nook HD. Boo Hiss. If they had a - 5 stars I would,d give it that. The Nook OS is too restrictive to be of much use to me. The cost of apps are outrageous.

    MAKE SURE YOU HAVE A GMAIL ACCOUNT BEFORE YOU BUY THIS APP!

    This app is slow. Get a stiluss in order to manipulate the page. It will fill the void if you do not have a smart phone and want to check youe email and facebook when you are around a wifi.Not very good for words with friends.
