To download apps, you don't. To download books, you do but that's your Barnes and Noble account. They don't charge your card for free books; only for those that have a price. I'm not sure why they want your info for free books. It's never made sense to me. If you upgrade it to the latest software version then you have the Google Play store and it works just like on your phone. You go in and you download apps without entering credit card information unless they aren't free. :)

NO. When you access the app store, the apps are categorized, Free apps, top 10 free apps, business apps, social apps.

None of which asked for a card #. the only time i used my credit card was downloading a book.

No. The Nook has an android operating system which is very limited by Barnes&Noble. The Nook is pretty much limited to apps sold by BN just for the Nook. You can however buy a commercially available micro sd card that will turn the Nook into a full android tablet and then you can access google apps. You could then also use the Nook to read Kindle books from Amazon. Out of the box Kindle and Nook are competitors so they don't like each others books.

answer 4
NOOK does not require connection to Wi-Fi in order to read books and magazines or view videos that are saved to your device, but you do need to connect to Wi-Fi in order to purchase/download new content from the NOOK or Google Play stores. There are some apps that require an internet connection in order to function, and streaming audio/video services such as Netflix and Pandora will also require a connection. One of the things that makes NOOK an ideal travel companion is that you can load up your device with as many books or magazines as you think you might need (and you can always utilize microSD cards if extra space is required, as may be the case with movies), and then all of your content is available right at your fingertips for the duration of your trip - no Wi-Fi required.

No, there is no USB port on this model, I don't know why some have said yes, and one even told you were it was, this is not true, that spot is for the 30 pin port for charging. You will have a head phone plug, a slot for your 30 pin charger, and a slot for the micro SD card.

Yes, facebook is already on mine when purchased. Then I downloaded google play store to get candy crush and words with friends free. On the game app store that came already on tablet, words with friends was $2.99 , but on google play store free. I bought this because its android and I wanted their game store due to so many free. This seems just like my ipad, we don't really use it for reading, mostly games, youtube, and internet. You do have to put a credit or debit card on file to even download free stuff though.

Can the battery be charged through the USB cable?

I know that the battery can be charged through the Power Adapter, but can it also be charged through the USB cable, so that I can use a USB car adapter with the USB cable when I need a charge on the go.

I am the one that asked this question and wanted to follow up on it, I did find a cheaper way to charge the Nook tablet in the car. I will try and explain the best I can as I am a woman, lol. You know the plug for the car where you can plug in just about anything that has a household plug, meaning the two prong plug you use in your house, well get one those that goes right into the cigarette lighter slot, they are powerful enough to plug your tablet into as the same way you plug it in at home. I had one lying around so I did not need to spend anything. I think they are called power inverters.

Hi, I am the one that asked this question, I do now own this tablet, and it is wonderful, but I have yet found a car charger with the USB adapter to charge the tablet. I have a Durcell car adapter with the USB but it will not charge the tablet, not strong enough, but I am still looking. You can however pay $25.00 for a car charger that is made by Nook to charge the tablet, I did find that, but I think $25.00 is a bit high for a car charger. I am looking for a much cheaper one. I will update this if I find one.
Thanks for all the answers

I'm not sure. The same USB cable can be connected to a car adapter but the AC transformer puts out 2A and most car adapters only put out 1A.
