As my post states i think we should have a sticky of apps that dont work on the nook in its numerous variations. For instance i just did rooted nook color and can confirm the below do NOT work for me:

[Nook Rooted]
- Amazon MP3 {not authenticating}
- Android lightsaber
- Braintrainer
- epicurious {works for some}
- Granny Majhong {has issues}
- Grocery Gadget
- MegaJump
- Minisquardron Lite
- NewsRoom
- reader hub
- slacker {works for some}
- slingplayer{seems to work for some}
- zinio magazine reader

[Nookie]
Dictionary.com



[HoneyNook]
- Angry Birds
- eBuddy
- Kindle for Android
- Nook for Android
- SpringPad { Does not sync}
- Tweetdeck
- Twitter


Feel free to add any you encountered that either don’t work or is practically unuseable. I'll update the main thread alphabetically as i get your responses.

Let's see how it goes.

My son loves the Android Lightsaber App on my phone and when I tried to install it to the Nook Color it runs but only uses 1/4 of the screen. That's the only app iv'e found that doesn't work right.

The formatting in NewsRoom gets completely jacked up on the NC screen, rendering it useless.

TypeFresh also doesn't work, although Font Changer does.

The following do not work on my Nook running Honeycomb:

Nook - Will not load books
Kindle - Crashes Honeycomb on launch
Springpad - Will now allow me to login through gmail (not sure if the alternative login methods will work)
Tweetdeck - will not install

Not going to sticky this thread because we're overflowing with how-to's, tips, and guides already in the sticky section, but I love the idea - keep posting to it and it'll be seen.

I tried Wings of Steel and it loads and shows up on screen but you can't control the plane so you crash pretty much as soon as the game launches.

Slingplayer: To clarify my earlier post it works on Nookie Froyo via SD card. Android Slingplayer was always a post Froyo app.
