One star or less because I cannot find the way on my iPhone 5 app to easily zoom into an illustration on a page which is a necessity for me to study. Having bought books that are about $100 each that cannot truly be read is a total rip-off to me!!! Please fix this a.s.a.p? Thank you. Also, no, I will not buy a Nook tablet on top of an iPhone and an iPad, I want, need and expect the apps to be fully functional for the not cheap books I bought and will be buying for school! I don't think that is an unreasonable request?

Why are you complaining and asking then to fix it in a iClarified comment? Why don't you email Barnes and Noble who developed the app? And if you want to know an easy way to zoom in on a photo, you can take a screen shot with your iPhone or iPad by pressing the home button and lock button at the same time. Then go into your photos and zoom in on the photo their.
