The estimated reading time for this post is 157 seconds
The Nook Color, the popular 7-inch tablet computer from Barnes & Noble, has impressed users with its full color touchscreen, customizable display, Wi-Fi browsing and media player. Increasing the functionality of the device even more is the incredible range of apps that are available. From games and entertainment to social and lifestyle apps, there’s something to keep everyone interested and engaged. Many users are taking advantage of a Barnes and Noble coupon code to treat themselves to one of the many productivity apps. Let’s take a look at some of the best available.
1. OfficeSuite Professional 6 tops the list of productivity apps. This paid app incorporates Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint for a complete mobile office solution. Users love the Google docs integration, file browser and ability to view PDF apps. The only app that comes close to this same functionality is QuickOffice Pro, but the familiar Microsoft interface makes OfficeSuite the clear winner. This conclusion is supported by user ratings on the Barnes & Noble site.
2. The latest update for the Nook Android operating platform gives users integrated basics including email, app store and web browser, but fails to include a calendar. That’s why users are so happy with the Cozi Family Organizer. Its to-do lists, shopping lists and family journal is complemented by a centralized calendar that can be easily synced with a PC. Fliq Calendar is a close runner up for its useful calendar, but the requirement to buy additional software to enable Nook to PC sync leaves it firmly in second place.
3. Pitched as an extension of your brain, Evernote is a popular app that lets you take notes, record voice reminders, create to-do lists and capture images. Everything you save is synced across your devices and remains searchable, so it’s a great organization tool. It’s completely free and includes the functionality of several individual apps like the paid Voice Memo Recordings and Write Notes.
4. There are a number of calculator apps available for the Nook Color. While these may seem on the boring side, it’s surprising how popular these apps are. There are three flavors of calculator available, from the very simple to the scientific. Many users prefer the simple calculator as opposed to the more technical version. Priced the same, this is purely a matter of personal choice.
5. Journal is a device based diary service that allows users to write down their thoughts and feelings. All journal entries are password protected and the app itself comes with three inviting themes – Leather & Gold, Carnation Pink and Sky Blue. It’s a clear winner over the similar Dear Diary app with user reviews and rating consistently backing up this theory.
The wealth of apps available for the Nook Color has turned one of the world’s best reading experiences into an affordable tablet computing essential. What are your thoughts on the Nook Color? Do you have any of your own must-have apps?
