Pros and cons of Barnes & Noble – shop books, games, collectibles app for iPhone and iPad

Barnes & Noble – shop books, games, collectibles app good for

The only reason I deleted it is because its only in America (letdown.). I actually might re-download it for book reference! Chapters-Indigo, take note!
You cant order books from Canada. However this is a great app for reading book reviews, bios of authors, and excerpts. The interface is simple and a pleasure to navigate - well done!
NB because of licensing agreements it appears that some (many?) books are available in the US only, which is why it may ask for a US billing address. There is still a simple way to buy the book. Love the Meriam Webster dictionary integration. Just select a word and you can get the definition. Not sure if the dictionary was there from the beginning or only after I bought a book. In general this is similar to Stanza and other ereader apps: love the ability to search, bookmark, highlight and make notes. Would be nice if you could unhighlight something you had previously highlighted.
To all those WHINING that this and other U.S. retailer apps dont need to be available to Canadians, THINK AGAIN. A lot of Canadians, myself included, live near the border and keep handy U.S. post office boxes for all our much more fairly-priced online purchases. Having apps like this one from B&N are just the icing on the cake, even with its flaws.
You can figure out how to get these digital books and Nook in Canada. I prefer this to iBooks.
I love books, and Chapters and Barnes & Noble are the main stores I buy from. However, the Indigo (Chapters) app allows me to add books to a Wishlist and B&N does not (as far as I can tell). I would love if I could have a Wishlist to add books to for the B&N app.

Some bad moments

I would only consider buying a book through this app if I could look at some free samples to experience what its like to read a book through the reader. Also, all we can see are the covers and a small description.. what about the dust jacket contents or a couple paragraphs from the book? A sample would be nice.
PS: even if you have a US address, but are in another country for school, work, etc, you cant get new eBooks to download to the old eReader app. Horrid that they wont do support for existing customers. Have like $300 worth of eBooks that I cant transfer to new Apple products and really dont like the fact that only realized after purchasing a book that wouldnt download. B&N never emailed me or whatever to inform me of this change.
Why on earth would they offer this app in Canada where it is essentially useless???
I will not use this app again, I used to use it all the time, my phone went toast and ended up getting iPhone guess what downloaded (during this period nook came out) it logged in and all book on-line no longer exist. Spent alot of money on books.
First of all no app for the iPad. Way to loose customers to your competitors. Second, if you guys supposedly updated it around Dec 1 so books are available in Canada, why was the last update from the summer? Lame!!!!!!
Might be a decent app if I could use it for its intended purpose.
