My Nook HD+ is ready for Spring!
A comparison: the original Nook HD+ homescreen, followed by how I customized it with third-party apps. I just wish I could get the original book carousel on my customized screens, but it seems that isn’t possible.
When I first got my Nook HD+ tablet, I wasn’t impressed with the BN cases available – they didn’t seem to offer the protection and slim profile I wanted, and most of them didn’t even latch closed. So I started to look online at other alternatives, and found the Poetic Slimbook Case for only $15.
It’s seriously been the best purchase I could have made for my Nook! It has a strap to keep it closed, the case covers the front bezel of the Nook, which scratches very easily, and it can serve as a stand in landscape mode. Best of all, it comes in several great colors!
I also really recommend a screen protector. I found mine at Amazon as well, and not only does it protect the screen, the texture provides much better feedback and improved screen responsiveness.
My new baby! The Nook HD+ prices are so good I had to grab one! I’m still undecided on whether I like the case or not – it doesn’t have a way to keep closed, so I am using a Circa rubberband. I’ve already downloaded a secondary launcher and changed the icons, as my gadgets have to have the eye-candy, haha. Now to sideload my epub books and I’ll be all set!!
