BOOKSELLER Barnes & Nobile launched its Nook apps for IOS and Android devices today in the UK.

The free apps that the company says have already been downloaded "millions of times in the US" will allow UK customers to shop from their Ithings or Android devices in the UK Nook Store that features 2.5 million titles.

BArnes & Noble said the apps also feature Smart Nook Sync technology so that customers can automatically sync their entire library on the go, including last page read, bookmarks, notes and highlights across all of their devices.

"Start a book on a Nook tablet or ereader and seamlessly pick back up on an Ipad, Iphone, Ipod Touch or Android smartphone or tablet to keep reading anytime, anywhere - all without losing the page," Barnes & Noble said.

Once the app is downloaded, UK customers can access a free sample of Nook books, and can buy and download titles straight away.

The Nook for Android and IOS apps also offer access to the Nook Newsstand so customers can try digital periodicals for free for 14 days and access a selection of popular newspapers and magazines by subscription or single copy purchases.

The announcement further supports Barnes & Noble's expansion into the UK market since late Summer, which saw it partnering with major retailers like John Lewis, Foyles, Argos and Dixons. µ
