To enable installing apps in NookMarket:
Twook (version: 0.0.8): consistently turn the screen off when I move from the password field to the submit button. Solution: press any page flip button to turn the screen back on in the login page. Reading tweets on Nook is great but tweeting one isn’t, because of the lower sensitivity of the keyboard compared to iPod Touch and you need arrow key to navigate to your typos and correct them (no spell check of course).
WikiLocker: allows you to lock your wifi so it doesn’t turn off (beware of battery drain), turn wifi off, keep touchscreen on, disable screensaver and stop adb.
It would be nice if there can be gamma settings in the pdf viewer—the CMR fonts commonly used in LaTeX appears to be thin on screen (both computer and Nook). I have yet to figure out a way to hack this:
The first one is the original APDFViewer output whereas the second one is an image processed with gamma=0.5 from the computer. PaperCrop will do this for you but the resulting file is huge because the pages are converted into images in PDF.
Bookshelves do not survive a reboot? Why?
