Nook Is Top Book App in Apple App Store

By Jason Boog Comment

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.
