The NOOK App store is closing, here‘s what we’re doing to help!At the start of March 2016, Barnes & Noble have announced that they are closing their NOOK App store, meaning that NOOK owners can no longer buy new apps from that store, and it won’t be possible for developers (like Astraware) to submit updates to our games via that store.
We have a solution, however!
If you have a Nook HD, HD+, or any of the NOOK branded Samsung tablets, then it will be possible for you to use the Google Play store on these devices to get the latest versions of the Astraware games, and we will be able to support these over the long term!
We’ve also been able to have our server (that usually provides the daily puzzles and update messages) to send out unlocks to you if you’ve had the NOOK Deluxe versions of any of our games, so that the Play version will unlock the same features for you, including any in-app purchases (of puzzle packs, for instance) that you may have made via the NOOK store.
Free downloads at the Google Play Store
You will need to either have or create a free Google Account to download anything from this store, but you don't need to add any credit card details to be able to download these. ( If you do decide to buy any additional puzzle packs at a later point, you’ll need to have a Google Wallet account, which you can use for any purchases on the Google Play store. )
Just tap any of these icons to go to the page for that game, it will step you through setting up an account if you don't have one already. You can also try out any of the other games too, even if you hadn’t already purchased a copy on your NOOK!
NOOK HD and HD+ Owners
Samsung Tablet for NOOK Owners
This is our general version which will work fine on all android devices, including the Samsung Nook Tablets.
Updated versions for all NOOK Owners
These are our general android versions and will work on
We managed to update Astraware Solitaire on the NOOK store to version 2.12 (including support for the newest Galaxy Tab S2 device) just in time before the cutoff, and so if you had already purchased this you’ll be able to download the update at any time. We don’t have a way to transfer this to a new device just yet, but we’ll figure out a way when we do come back for a further major update. We’ll send a message within the game itself when it’s time to do that!
NOOK HD and HD+
Be sure to install this version for Nook HD/HD+, otherwise the Nook store may try to overwrite it with the original bundled version!
