Nook iOS app updated with Retina visuals, dual-column reading

Summary:Barnes & Noble's Nook app joins the growing number of Retina display-ready updates announced in past few weeks.

Joining rival Amazon's Kindle App, Barnes & Noble has updated its Nook app for iOS.

Nook for iOS version 3.1.3 takes advantage of the latest iPad's oft-praised Retina display, which means, of course, sharper text and images. Barnes & Noble is also furnishing the iPad app with the ability to display text in one or two columns while in landscape mode.

Monday has been a big day for Retina-ready app updates. Facebook has also updated its own iOS app, bringing with it better visuals, bug fixes, and the ability to sign out of Facebook chat.

Seemingly every developer with an iOS app has announced an update in the wake of the new iPad's release. The New York Times, Skype, Netflix and many others have all recently issued updates in an effort to take advantage of the new Retina display and the hype surrounding it.
