Barnes & Noble is a leading retailer of both physical books and digital content. The company sells content for a number of digital reading devices including the Nook line of E-readers. Today Barnes & Noble has announced that the updated Nook app for Windows 8 computer users is now available to download.
The app was announced late last year, but users can now download the latest version of the app via Barnes & Noble. The updated app is designed to allow users to sign in and shop using their Microsoft account. This means that users of the app don't need to sign in with separate credentials or create an account in advance.
The app provides Windows 8 users with a seamless experience allowing automatic access to the wide range of digital books, magazines, newspapers, and comics that Barnes & Noble offers. Content purchased using the Windows 8 app is stored via Nook Cloud. That gives access to all purchase content across a variety of devices.
Users who already have a Nook account can combine previously purchased titles and content purchased using their Microsoft account into one primary account. The Windows 8 app is available to download at no cost for all Windows 8 computers and tablets. The Nook library offers over 3 million books including 1,000,000 free titles.
