Default [q] Lack of Nook app on cm10.2

Newb here, I just upgraded my Nook Hd+ stock to cm10.2 nightlies. For the most part everything went smoothly but I'm unable to install the Nook app now.

Is this normal? For Nook to not be able to be able to be installed on Nook hd+'s with cm?

I've downloaded nook from this site

Any bad side effects from Nook not being installed from the Play store?

Have you set allowing apps from unknown sources in settings? You do not explain what you mean by unable to install.

It is normal for the nook app to show as not compatible in the Play Store. Users just side load the app from sites like you referenced. Works fine.

I meant installing through the google play store. I'll keep that in mind in the future, I just thought it was weird that BN wouldn't let me put a nook on my nook. I thought the tablets were a loss leader to encourage you to buy books from them.

It is, but their stock already includes the reader and you are not supposed to be running CM on it. They do not want to encourage people doing that by making the android app available to CM on the nook.
