I have a few ebooks mainly reference texts that I bought from Barnes and Noble while in the States. I've updated my iPad but Apple App Store recognizes I'm not in the States and won't let me have it even though it's free. In the past I have been able to load a free .ipa App by placing it in the proper Mobile Applications folder of iTunes on my computer and resync the iPad. I am not 100% sure it will work for any .ipa but i'm willing to try. What would be truly appreciated is if anyone has the free 'Nook for iPad' .ipa (look inside Mobile Applications of their iTunes once it's downloaded they email it me so I can access my text books again. Thanking you Pete.
