    Correction

    I did finally see where it is listed for the Nook Tablet only. Still, bunch of crap, since it is listed as a generic "Nook App". And still not trading in my Nook Color.

    Nook seller approved!

    This app is amazing! As a nookseller/ bookseller for Barnes & Noble, i try to keep up with new apps, this is a slick new way to stay ontop of news and current trends as well as your own personal social media. With feeds like facebook and twitter, but also google + and instagram! A very easy to navigate interface and easy to set up accounts This will totally be an easy recomendation for my customers and have a solid place on my homescreen.

    Hard to tear myself away

    I had to make myself stop using this app so that I could write this awesome review. This app is fantastic...I've used feedly, google reader and pulse and this blows them all out of the water. Thanks for bringing your app to the nook flipboard.

    Arbitrary lack of support for Nook Color. It is like they want me to sell this device on eBay and buy an actual android device with and actual app store worth raving about.

    Can't use this on my colorNook worthless. Why are they doing that putting all the Nook apps together and not distinguishing what can be used on NookColor, Nook, Nook tablet, so forth. I didnt' see this either. Something is wrong with the olympic one too. Feel very iqnorant at the moment. Guess I will iqnore the apps on this website from now on period.

    Must have app for tablet

    Im a big pulse fan, but flipboard is the better news reader. The interface is terrific, and syncs with my iphone app as well. Easily customize your feeds to get just the news you want. The top stories section is what separates flipboard from the rest.

    Flipboard best by far.....go for it!

    Excellent app with a fast response to searches! Better than most simiar apps out there to date. The high quality of video and photographics are outstanding not to mention the crystal clear text and content. Well laid out and very easy to navigate and use.

    Just perfect!

    Great way to see all your feeds. Works great. Link with Facebook and Twitter for a great social network tool. Read later connectivity with Readability is perfect. Windows Phone 7-like Metro UI is functional and fun. Well done. Five stars.

    Please read

    Ok. So first i get that people are mad because this app does not specifically say Nook tablet only but oh well they shouldnt be complaining about an app they cant use imo. If it doesnt work, it doesnt! Go on with your life.

    Secondly, this app is fricking amazing! I normally shy away from social compiling apps but i figured id give this one a try and i love it. Its a very clean and smooth running app. There are plenty of feeds to choose from to get the news you want. I would reccomend this app to anyone.

    Thirdly. I think there is one thing this app needs. Unless i havent found the option, when you have quite a few feeds 'favorited', it only shows the first 10 or so you have clicked. Otherwise you have to click on the 'more' option and scroll through ur favs. I would much rather have the option to change what ones show or juat be able to flip though them all instead.

    I still stand by the fact that this is a great app though.

    Gorgeous and Functional

    This app is absolutely beautiful and truly useful. It is a great way to view one's favorite topics (e.g. news, travel, technology, music, etc.), favorite RSS feeds, and Facebook and Twitter feeds attractively, neatly, and in one place. Flipboard becomes even more functional when used in conjunction with the app Readability; while within range of Wi-Fi, one can save articles from Flipboard to read later--and even without Wi-Fi--on Readability!

    This app is phenomenal: a truly beautiful interface, very simple

    This app is phenomenal: a truly beautiful interface, very simple yet powerful system of customization, and complete compatibility with all the web sources I utilize daily -- from world news, science and tech articles, and architecture exhibitions, to social media, linkedin, and youtube. I virtually never write online reviews, preferring simply to vote up or down; however, Flipboard is such a well-constructed app that I can't but praise it here.

    I have an 8 GB tablet, and functionality is fine (meaning, I can't speak for the issues Nook Color users have experienced). It does appear as a single app on your home, and it can be linked to Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Google reader (which I only began using because of the introduction within Flipboard -- it seems to be a very functional RSS compiler, though I haven't used it for long yet), etc. I very much enjoy the capacity for quick yet total customization; I know this will be my new go-to app. Thanks!

    Well done!

    I've been a huge fan of Flipboard on my iphone since its release. The Nook app is just as well done.

    A must for everyone attempting to read news from many sources. Between this and Pulse, I never miss a beat.

    The best news app out there!

    This app is incredibly user-friendly with a gorgeous interface, stellar organization and intriguing interaction. This is a great way for me to keep up with my facebook feed while finding interesting news articles at the same time. This app does it all! It's the best social media app on Nook by far. Highly recommend!

    Great news reader!

    I love using this app but when will you allow access to updates? An update has been available to the app but there is no way to utilize it that I can see. Set up updates and it would definitely be 5 stars.
