One of the long rumored and anticipated features are NOOKcolor apps. You can get to the pre-installed apps by tapping Apps from the Quick Nav Bar.

Tap Discover More NOOK Apps to open the B&N store on the apps page, where you can shop for apps just like you can NOOKbooks. The store has a small number of apps now, but expect the list to grow.

Within the apps interface on your NOOKcolor, if you tap the sync button, your NOOKcolor will connect with B&N and determine if there are any updates to your existing apps. The Available Updates screen appears. You can choose to update all, some, or none of your apps.

For apps you have added beyond the standard, if you press and hold the app, you see some options similar to ebooks (see Figure 1).

The options are essentially the same as ebooks with one difference. If you tap Archive, the app is removed from this screen. If you tap the Archived button, the Archived Apps screen appears and shows you all of your archived apps. Press and hold the app icon and then tap Unarchive to put it back on the NOOK Apps screen.
