We all know the Simple Touch is running an ancient version of Android, and there's tons of popular apps that don't work. But there's actually a large amount of apps that do work with the NST, just older versions. I decided to make a small repository for older versions of apps that work with the NST (and other Android 2.1 devices as well).​

Books & References
  • Google Play Books¹ (1.0.6) - APK
  • Aldiko Book Reader (2.1.0) - APK
  • Dictionary.com (3.1) - APK
  • Merriam Webster (2.1) - APK
  • Bible (2.4.1) - APK

News & Magazines
  • BBC News (1.3.4) - APK
  • CNN (1.2.0) - APK
  • Engadget (1.9.5.1) - APK

Productivity
  • Evernote (5.1.3.2) - APK
  • Opera Mini (12.1.4) - APK
  • Google Drive (1.2.228) - APK
  • PerfectViewer (1.9.2.2) - APK

Social
  • Plume for Twitter² (5.03) - APK

Games
  • Angry Birds³ (2.2.0) - APK

¹ Cannot view books manually uploaded to Play Books, there is a newer version that can but has major issues on the NST
² May have issues signing in to Twitter
³ Screen refresh bugs

These are just the first few apps, I'm going to be uploading many more as time goes on. Please feel free to leave a suggestion, and I'll do my best to find a version that works under Android 2.1 and the NST :)

Thank you so much for posting all these apps - glad to find so much stuff that is working on my freshly rooted NST.

One question: The Kindle app can't seem to find my personal documents, and apparently that's an issue with Google Books, too. Does anyone know, how to get the Android-2.1.-kindle to recoginize my documents?

Or: Does anyone know of another e-reader that does the whole syncing of the last page read like Kindle and Google books?

I love being able to read on my phone and my e-reader without constantly having to find my place in the book after switching between the two? Is there any solution you could suggest?

(apologies if this has been solved elsewhere - my search did not turn up anything)

I appreciate every bit of advice!

I have Play Books 1.3.5 running on nook simple & a glow, shows my books and can read, looks like 10pt text, unable to adjust anything, saves place etc. would like to try v1.4.5 found a reference somewhere but cannot find app, most leads lead to old pages.

That's odd, it works fine on my normal Nook Simple Touch. To adjust the text size, you will have to map a button (if only temporarily) to be used as the menu button using the Nook Touch Mod Manager app. Then pressing the menu button while reading will bring up options.
