BN eReader for iPad Released

wpid-freebnereaderapp_f1-2010-05-27-08-38.jpg

Not to be left behind by Amazon’s Kindle App and Apple’s iBook’s App, Famed bookseller Barnes and Noble has just released the long awaited eReader App for iPad.

I think the best feature of B&N’s hardware ebook reader device the NOOK was the lend to a friend feature. The ability to lend books just like we would a paper and glue version has long been missing from readers like the Kindle. The “LendMe” feature allows you to lend or borrow books on any of the BN eReader platforms including “The Holy Trinity” (iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch), Mac, PC or NOOK.

I love to read books, a trait I pick up from my mother, and there was no better way to consume books than with my Kindle 1. However, since the iPad gave me 3 major sources and growing of places to score really good content my Kindle is collecting dust. What has been you experience with eReading? Leave me a comment to insert your $.02.

Moodboard Pro is a Killer iPad App

I just got this app and I have to say so far its cool. I’ll be doing a full video review of the app in a few days after i put it through it’s paces. From what i gather thus far it is very intuitive and easy to just jump right in and start futtin’ around getting creative.

I love all things design and this is no exception as Moodboard Pro has a very nice interface design. It seems as if they have a great understanding of the touch interface and it ergonomics.

Until I get my video of this great app up please take a look at the developers video:

Totally on a more patriotic note, the designer/co-creator of the app Kyle Tress, is a World Cup Skeleton athlete and a 2014 Winter Olympic hopeful. That alone make me want to buy this app as US athletes have to raise their own funds to be an Olympian. Check out his blog http://www.kyletress.com/

I’d say buy it now even if you don’t need it so you can help out this inspiring Olympian… well and because it is a great app. This one will surely end up on my home screen.

USA Today: Jefferson Graham’s iPad Review Video

I’m confused weather he really likes it or not, he seems to keep going back and forth. One thing I think he totally missed s the how to get media into the device. He said he did not want to just iTunes as the only way in and out but did not elude as to why not.

Documents are easily emailed to your self or synced via Pages, Google Docs, Zoho or countless other file mover type iPhone apps. Movies can be converted via VLC, QuickTime and two hundred other iPod Video Converters as they have been since people started stealing movies nearly ten years ago. so I’m not sure why he is bitching.

Anyway we may have to post the how to after we get one in house.
