Barnes & Noble app hits one million downloads
A new report from Barnes & Noble confirms that e-book app downloads are continuing to gain popularity. In July, B&N launched two free apps to give iPhone and smartphone users access to its titles as well as store event calendars, directions, and other B&N information. Now, just a few months later, it is being reported that both apps have already been downloaded over one million times. According to the press release, the B&N eReader app for the iPhone was also the number one app in the iTunes Books category this summer.
