B&N eReader for iPad

Barnes & Noble’s B&N eReader for iPad is the latest eBook reader plus bookstore app to hit the iPad.  It’s coming in over a month after the built-in iBooks app and Amazon’s Kindle app – but has a strong set of features, a big content library, and one unique feature that should be appealing for many users – the ability to lend books to others.

Here is a list of the app’s features, via its App Store page:

– Free BN eReader app designed specifically for iPad
– Exclusive LendMe™ technology that lets you share eBooks with friends using any of our free BN eReader apps or NOOK eBook readers
– LendMe™ allows you to grab friends’ addresses right from your existing iPad contacts
– Free safe and secure library keeps your eBooks accessible for years and years to come
– Ready to read in your library:
–Ten free samples of current best sellers (with new accounts)
— Three free classics
– Free samples of any eBook
– Adjustable font size so you can make the text as big as you want for reading ( 10 different sizes)
– Multiple font types—so you pick the typeface you prefer
– Background and text color options for easy reading in any light
– Use our professionally designed themes or create your own
– Tap or swipe to turn pages
– Browse your library visually with big, beautiful color covers or in iPad style “list view” (like Apple’s Mail app)
– Synchronize your notes, highlights and current reading position with BN eReader for PC (and our forthcoming update to iPhone)
– 24/7 shopping — no waiting
– Free Merriam-Webster’s Pocket Dictionary is built right in so you don’t leave the page when looking up a word

You can find B&N eReader for iPad in the App Store now, and it is a free app.

I haven’t tried the app out as yet, as I still haven’t caught up with my reading in the iBooks, Kindle, and a few standalone eBook apps.

If any of you have given it a go, please share your thoughts on it in the comments.
