Note about NOOK Magazine downloads

We had a report from a library that noticed that if you try to open an OverDrive magazine in the NOOK app before it is finished downloading, you will get a message about "Try for Free" along with subscription costs and details. Once the title has fully downloaded, that information goes away. Until the download is complete, it appears that the NOOK app does not recognized the title as a library checkout. You can see a screen shot at:

I added a note to the "magazines now available" announcement letting patrons know not to open the magazine until the title has finished downloading. Not sure how often this will happen, but it is good to know if patrons ask about why that message appears.
