It looks like I am the first poster here. I finally decided to Root my Nook Simple Touch after months of using it as a reader. I added a few apps like Checkers, Solitaire, Root Explorer, RPN Calculator Financial and a Screen Off widget, plus the built-in apps that came with Touchnooter. What other Apps and Widgets do you recommend? BTW I also have an Android phone and Tablet, so am using this for simple apps, maybe email and games when I have idle time. My favorite apps so far, stock BN reader (of course), ADW launcher and Tiny Battery Widget. By making ADW launcher the default for the home button, I have eliminated the annoying BN Home page which made rooting worth the effort for me.
