Barnes & Noble adds slew of new apps for tablets
Barnes & Noble has just revealed that it has added new official apps to its Nook Tablet and Nook Color devices. They include the popular Words with Friends, with Twitter and Plants vs. Zombies coming soon. Others are promised for early next year as well.
The tablets offer a number of other popular new games, including the single user edition of Scrabble, Office Gamebox, Rock 'Em Sock 'Em Robots, Jeopardy!, Wreck This App, Magic 8 Ball, Doodle Jump Christmas, and Mad GAB. Eight other less-known games have been added recently.
New children's apps are I Can Read along with a number of books, Ballonimals, and Veggietales.
Travelers will find a Priceline Hotel Navigator app, Random House Living Language French app and AccuWeather Platinum.
Shoppers can buy online using the HSN Shop app while the Cozi Family Organizer is for busy families. Taptu Fashion and Style.com are meant for fashion-conscious users.
The tablets do not have the ability to access the full Android Market store, however.
