Free Nook Color Apps

Nook Color Apps

Unless you own a Nook Color, it can be difficult to find what kind of selection of apps are available, and especially free apps since the Barnes and Noble website refuses to sort Nook Color apps by price.

So I decided to put together this list of free apps for the Nook Color via Barnes and Noble’s Nook appstore for those that are considering getting a Nook Color and want to know what type of free apps are available for it.

As of the date of this post, this is the complete list of free apps for the Nook Color. This applies to a non-hacked Nook Color, of course. A hacked Nook can install hundreds if not thousands of free apps from the Android Market.

Like I said, the B&N store isn’t currently sorting apps properly, but there is a workaround for finding the list of free apps on B& It’s not something that is obvious to figure out, so here is the link to the list of free Nook Color apps for future reference.

  1. Hi,
    I came across your website through your video of cm7 installation on the Nook color. I like the way how you explained everything step by step. Makes it easy for noobs like us.
    I have a request, could you make a video showing the nooter process for the new Nook Color? Some of us like to keep the stock B&N firmware but still get extras like games,apps and tweaks from the market. If you could that would be great!
    Thanks and you have been bookmarked.
    Take care..

    • I posted a review of the nooter process on the Nook Color awhile ago, but I didn’t post any how to steps because it was after it first came out and I knew there would be changes to the directions with updates. Here are the current directions at XDA. It’s pretty much the exact same process as rooting the Nook Touch.
