    First review, how unfortunate.

    This is the first time I have actually spent the time to write a review. Now I know you could care less but what is so unfortunate is that I am only doing this now to warn you about this product. I am by no means a novice, that is in the installation of Apps or in dealing with internet/PC's etc. So when you read this, dont be like I was and ignore the reviews. I have hundreds of hours installing and operating systems/programs. That was my problem, I felt arrogant enough to think I could get a program to do whatever I wanted. I never wrote a review before because I didnt care enough to. People download pirate crap constantly and are surprised when it doesnt work. Duh! Always consider the source. Well I was really surprised when I downloaded and tried to install this program at how much trouble I had. The fact that B&N/Nook had this program available was shocking, in hindsight. I spent three days and endless hours trying to get this to work and it was a huge waste of my time. First the program itself is garbage. Then the Tech Support is useless. Worse yet is that I am one of the idiots who actually bought the App, no I was not aware that you could download it for free. I actually trusted B&N/Nook, I thought they would protect us loyal customers. Now if you read this and are about to dowload this program (whether you pay for it, or its free), if you choose to get it you deserve what you get. It is going to be a long time before I trust either company again. As of right now Im trying to get my money back but I am not holding my breath. You were warned, dont get this program or any other by this company.

    You have to pay for support

    I did purchase the pc app as well as the free app. Installed the pc portion as directed. Still cant sync e mail or contacts. Tried to call the developer, no phine number, BUT, for a fee you can open a support ticket. B & N this us a FAIL on your part. Give us a reputable developer for our apps or open the android market to NC?

    WiFi Sync is handy... but PRICEY!

    Being able to sync wirelessly is very convenient and keeping tasks/notes/calendars synced across your devices is a godsend, but $40 is highway robbery!

    Zero = NO DO NOT DOWNLOAD

    This is a joke...what exactly is the problem... Unfortunately I purchased this a month or so ago, yep paid the big fee too, it was not free, finally am getting around to setting it up and bingo, it does not sync. Maybe what really needs to happen is we should all band together and call the better business bureau as well as forward letters regarding Mark/Space, Incs. false advertising and accepting monies for services clearly not rendered. Who would have thought that Barnes & Noble would dare put their name behind this one. I have just spend 7 hrs attempting to correct this on all levels. DO NOT DOWNLOAD! Clearly a disappointment. Barnes & Noble it would be great if you put in your comments and made a suggestion so that people don't have a need to vent here. Also why not remove product off your recommendations that clearly gets so many of your loyal customers dissatisfied comments. Shame, just a shame.

    !!!WARNING--NOT FREE!!! ACTUALLY $40.00--B&N ignores the problem

    -FOLLOW-UP to review below-

    I reported this bait-and-switch to Barnes and Noble Customer Service. It was forwarded to the Nook Group. Their response was both useless and offensive. To paraphrase: "..thank you for expressing your concerns. We will investigate this. Please regularly check Nook Apps to see if this software is still available on our site." So I don't even get the courtesy of a reply regarding the results of their "investigation". When will B&N figure out that hundreds of one-star ratings, all raising the same complaint, are worth paying attention to. Does anyone at B&N read these comments--obviously not.

    And for all you clowns who defend this product and the say the way it is described is just fine, just read--NO it needs to say more than just a PC applications is required. It needs to say A $40 PC APPLICATION MUST BE PURCHASED DIRECTLY FROM THE DEVELOPER, WHO PROVIDES NO WARRANTY, FOR THIS APP TO BE OF ANY USE ON YOUR NOOK. And please cite for me any other Android app that requires a $40 PC-side app to work. $5-10 maybe or it is already bundled with the Android app price. $40 companion software is NOT THE NORM, ITS OUTRAGEOUS. This is designed to rip-off the newbie tablet user. If B&N would unlock the Nook I can get comparable or better apps for FREE.

    Root your Nook, the B&N App Store is going nowhere.

    **********
    As noted in other reviews, the Android app is free, but the PC software required to use it for the stated purpose is $40. There is nothing unusual about the PC software or what it does. It MIGHT be worth $15 just for the convenience.

    B&N has really screwed up on this one. Except that the app is free this would be an illegal bait-and-switch or false advertising. When are they going to pull this app and make something legitimate available?

    There is a free Android app on other sites called MyPhoneExplorer which does everything MissingSynch does and more. To bad you can't add it to the Nook Color without modification.

    With QuickOffice and a decent synching tool to my PC MSOffice files and Outlook Calendar and Contacts, the Nook Color would work for me as a tablet PC without hacking.

    WAKE UP B&N!!

    Avoid!!!

    I have this app for my DroidX phone and my Nook. Sync copies multiple copies of the same files to either device. Questions to support either go unanswered or request info already supplied. App simply doesn't work as claimed and isn't supported by provider.

    $40!?

    Makes me want to sell my nook to subsidize the purchase of a real tablet, with real apps, that i could read books on anyway. By the time I spend what is required to get this thing doing what I want it to, I will have been able to buy an iPad!

    DO NOT DOWNLOAD!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I got this app when it was first available. Not only has it never worked, we ended up having to purchase a new computer. It's just not worth the risk.

    B&N - Do you monitor these comments? Missing Sync is a poor

    B&N - Do you monitor these comments? Missing Sync is a poor product (although aptly named since it misses syncing with my PC). Many other similar products are available for REAL android devices. Seems like you could find one for the Nook that works. I have spent the last two months trying to get Mark/Space to tell me why I was getting duplicate entries on the Nook Fliq Calendar for every calendar entry I have in Outlook. After trying a number of "shoot in the dark" attempts to analyze my problem, they finally told me they didn't know what was wrong, but they still would not consider a refund. Apparently I had not told them their product was broken within a "30 day window". Quite a ripoff! You should NOT continue to push this product. The average rating of 1.5 from close to 200 Nook owners should tell you something. While you're looking for a better app, it would also be nice if the syncing program also synced contacts from outlook which Missing Sync cannot do. Barf!!!

    Wish I could recommend this but "No Way".

    I downloaded it, and bought the $40 program to run it with no luck. I even have techs from work trying to get it to work and still no luck. Wish I could find out how to make it work. Barnes&Noble, you shouldn't recommend it if it doesn't work. Your app is free but can't do anything with it without buying the program that has lots of issues, shame on you.

    Love this program

    As a person who is trying to use their nook as a business tool along with it being an ereader, I found this to be extremely helpful. I can effortlessly transfer files by wifi as well as keep all my appointments, to do lists, etc updated. I almost did not purchase it due to the reviews, but I am so glad I did.

    It was well worth the price to increase my productivity.
