Manual Nook Software Download

Posted : admin On 10/6/2021

The Nook Color, available from Barnes & Noble, enables you to carry e-books and PDF documents with you whenever you travel for business. Occasionally, Barnes & Noble releases a software update that corrects system problems or adds new and useful features. At the time of publication, the latest update is version 1.4.3. This update offers zoom view for graphic novels, two-page landscape viewing for PDFs and several other system enhancements. Your Nook Color updates automatically if you have it connected to a Wi-Fi hotspot. You can also download and install the update manually.

The most recent software update for some Kindle e-readers provides updates needed to continue using some services on your device. This update should automatically download and install when your Kindle is charging and connected to a Wi-Fi network.
