Barnes & Noble NOOK app for PC and Mac discontinued

Barnes & Noble's NOOK business has been mediocre at best, mostly due to stiff competition from Amazon and its Kindle business. In what looks to be an effort to put more focus on mobile devices and reading on the go, Barnes & Noble has quietly discontinued its native app for both Windows and Mac (except Windows 8, pictured below), redirecting users to the web app instead.
