Barnes & Noble rolled out its official app for Windows 8.1 in 32 countries, and in 21 languages. The app is available now through Windows Store, and lets users access their purchased content over their Nook accounts, on their Windows 8.1 based desktops, notebooks, and tablets. It enables reading magazines purchased over Nook with their original color content, something not possible on e-ink variants of Nook. Among the 32 countries are Australia, Belgium, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Spain, Switzerland, United Kingdom and the United States.
"NOOK is committed to bringing its best-in-class digital reading experience to millions of new customers around the world, providing readers with a strong and proven alternative to what's currently available in their areas," said Jim Hilt, Managing Director, Barnes & Noble S.à.r.l. "NOOK is one of the leading digital reading platforms in the US and UK and we are confident that new customers across the globe will love our immersive discovery, shopping and reading experience through our highly rated NOOK App for Windows 8.1."
