The Nook app topped iBooks and Kindle in the Apple App Store this week, the free app rising as Barnes & Noble revealed a powerful new partnership.
AppNewser has a list of top eBook apps: “Nook is the bestselling free eBook app for the week, according to research from AppData. Barnes & Noble’s bookstore app includes books for purchase as well as free public domain eBooks.”
Barnes & Noble and Microsoft settled their patent litigation dispute earlier this week, partnering to build a new corner of Barnes & Noble’s business. Microsoft will invest $300 million into a new, unnamed subsidiary that will contain the bookseller’s digital and college businesses.
