Your NOOK displays magazines published in a variety of digital formats. The format determines a magazine’s interactive features, including its navigation. Some formats are more interactive than others.
This section describes the interface and features available in the most popular format for magazines. You may occasionally encounter magazines with different interfaces and features. Digital magazine formats tend to be intuitive and easy-to-use, so even if the magazine’s features differ from those described here, you should be able to find your way through the publication without any trouble.
The type of NOOK you are currently using will determine which magazine format will be displayed. NOOK Color, NOOK Tablet, NOOK HD/HD+ and Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 NOOK usually display magazines in Page view while NOOK Simple Touch, NOOK Glowlight and NOOK 1st Edition will display magazines in Article view. Please note that not all magazines are available on all devices.
Page View and Article View
Most magazines you will read on NOOK use a format that offers two views for reading.
• Page View: In Page view, you see digital representations of the printed pages of the magazine. The pages on your NOOK will look just like the pages in the printed edition. If the page is filled with photos in the printed edition, the page appears filled with photos on your NOOK. Page View works in both portrait mode and landscape mode.
• Article View™: In Article view, you see just the text of the article without any illustrations or photos. You can scroll through the text as you would in a book. You can also navigate directly from article to article. Article View works in both portrait mode and landscape mode.
In Page View, you navigate through the magazine by swiping your finger to turn pages.
You can also tap in the center of the screen to call up Reader Tools, which display thumbnail images of pages in the lower half of the screen. A progress bar beneath the pictures of pages shows your current position in the magazine. A slider beneath the thumbnail images lets you move quickly forward or backward through the magazine. The Reader Tools also include controls at the bottom of the screen that let you:
• Display a table of contents for the magazine.
• Display a slider tool for adjusting the brightness of the screen.
To view a page without the Reader Tools and thumbnail images, tap in the center of the current page or tap on the thumbnail of the page you want to read next.
In Article view, you are able to read the magazine just like a book. Once a magazine is opened, you will see a list of article titles with the first few lines of the article. To continue reading tap on the title to bring up the entire article.
