What you need to know
Barnes & Noble is now on the Surface Duo bandwagon, offering an option to make its official Nook app for Android work well with Microsoft's novel new dual-screen device. Much like Amazon's Kindle reader app before it, the Nook app properly orients itself around the Duo's hinge, making it feel like reading an actual book or magazine.
In order to use the Nook app with Surface Duo in this way, you will have to do some toggling with its settings, however. Under the "Reader" settings, you'll have to find the "Column Mode for Landscape" option. From there, select "Always Two Columns."
Now, when you're reading a book, comic, or magazine in landscape orientation, the Nook app will keep pages separated between screens. The hinge won't cover any content in whatever you're reading.
If you want to give the Nook app a try, it's available to download now for free at Google Play. Also be sure to check out our list of Surface Duo optimized apps for more apps that play well with the Duo's dual-screen setup.

Review: HP's Spectre x360 15 is gorgeous, but battery life disappoints
The HP Spectre x360 15 is a unique laptop, not only in its design, but because it's the only recent convertible available in this size. The 2020 model sweetens the deal even more with a vibrant, nearly borderless display and snappy performance. Is it worth the high price, though? Let's take a look.
