    The Amazom Appstore install didn't really work for me. When I went to Open it it showed me a screen that had a bunch of buttons - Force stop, Uninstall, Clear data, Move to SD card, Clear cache, Clear Defaults. Is the Appstore icon called AppMenu? That's what I got when I did the Open after the package install.

    Nope, that's not the App Store that's the applications menu of the Nook. You might need to do something like check the "allow unknown sources" box while there but launching the App Store should not take you there. Was this only after your initial download? Did you install the App Store after downloading?

    I did the "Allow Unknown Sources" before doing the package install but I still got this when I selected "Open". Can I reinstall the package?

    Can I search for the App and try running it directly? I tried using Search but didn't know what to look for.

    Use search for Amazon or Appstore (all one word) and see what comes up. Also did you click the link in the email from Amazon from inside the Nook to download the apk?

    You can also download goluancher or another working launcher to get an alternate home launcher. Then when you are in the alternate launcher you should be able to go to the app drawer and see the non-B&N apps that you have installed.

    Is that the best alternate launcher? If I do that can I revert back to the stock launcher?

    I downloaded the app from here

    I don't know that it is the best alternate launcher but it seems to be the one everybody is using at the moment. Personally I like the simple little zeam launcher but haven't heard if it works on the NT. As for the app that should work (I see you followed the article) but I don't have an NT so I'm not sure.

    For the app, usually you go to Amazon and enter your email for the Appstore app then they email you a link to download it (basically the same link). Then from your email app on the device you click on the link and the apk downloads. I am guessing that if you clicked on that link in you NT browser the apk downloaded, at which point you should have received a notification in the tray saying new item downloaded. Open the notification tray and click on the new item to install. Then you should have the Amazon Appstore app. Usually this would install in the app drawer but because NT uses a custom home launcher this doesn't happen.

    Supposedly you can find the downloaded apps by using the search feature but this also seems to not be working for you. The other way to access the apps is via the app drawer on an alternate home launcher. That is why I think you should try and download and install go launcher. Here is a direct link to the apk http://61.145.124.93/soft/3GHeart/go...r_EX_V2.65.apk
