Internet Apps

The Nook Color includes a small number of built in applications, including the Pandora streaming audio app, a crossword app and Soduku and Chess games. No other apps are available, because the device does not support any downloaded apps or an app store.

Other Internet Features

The Nook Color has some basic social media features, allowing you to post clipped text to Twitter or Facebook. This could be a useful or irritating feature, depending on how much your friends like your excerpts from classic literature or romance novels. We'd recommend sticking with the former.
