Unable to use on my iPad Nook app

The Nook Study does not work with the Nook Color. If you want to buy the e-version to cut down on the things you have to lug around do not count on it, as you will have to take your computer with you to be able to see the book. If I had known that before buying the electronic version, I would have just rented the paper version for the semester that I have the class.
