Default App for getting into Recovery

I have rooted my Nook to Stock rooted with Emmc CWM recovery. I'm not sure how to get into it on reboot I think it using the home key but isn't the easiest for me to do. So I'm wondering if anyone knows about a shutdown app that will have the recovery option added in.
Thanks

Get the app "reboot to recovery" by wikilab.de. It is the only one that works on this device. And it only works if it is rooted. It does not have shutdown, only recovery. Try "Quickboot" by Sirius for shutdown, but its reboot option does not work on the HD/HD+.

Boot from power off holding the power and n buttons simultaneously. After a few seconds release the power button before it turns itself off again, followed a couple of seconds later by releasing the n button. It should then boot into recovery (either stock, CWM or TWRP, whichever you have installed).
