Barnes & Noble Nook for Android

While most users are probably thinking more about the 10-inch Android tablets with Honeycomb, Barnes & Noble is trying to make the Nook experience better for 7-inch tablet users.

The latest update to the Nook app for Android may not be huge, but it does bring an improvement for those tablet users. The app now sports a “grid view” for your eBook library, allowing more eBooks to be shown on screen at once. The other small improvements include a progress bar for downloading books, and an option in the shop to view books in your wish list or to and books to your wish list. Both of those improvements seem to be no-brainers which should have been there from the start.

Barnes & Noble doesn’t yet have an app that officially supports Honeycomb, but that should be coming this spring. Hopefully it’s a bit more exciting than this update.
