Barnes and Noble iPad eReader gets brightness

Barnes & Noble this morning posted an upgraded version of its eReader app for the iPad (free, App Store) that brings it more in step with iBooks, other apps, and the features on some dedicated, LCD-based e-readers. Like the special control in Apple's iBooks app, the Barnes & Noble client can now tune the screen brightness itself instead of relying on the tablet's overall preferences. Its two-page layout has improved, and book syncing has also been accelerated.

Other improvements brought to bear include a newer in-app registration layout, a smaller minimum font size, and multiple unnamed performance upgrades.

Alongside the iPad news, Barnes & Noble has added that it expects an Android version of eReader to arrive later along with an upgraded version of the iPhone-sized app.
