    "Approximately infinitely better than your college bookstore"

    The world of college textbooks is rife with pitfalls. The things are mad expensive, you end up only using them for a couple months, and then they're practically unsellable - unless you go online. lets you trawl all the best buying and selling textbook stores at once. Locate the books you need for cheap and unload the ones you're done with to earn some pocket money.

    The app lets you search all the big names in buying and selling textbooks at once, including, eBay, Amazon, Chegg, Barnes & Noble, TextbookX, and many more. Search based on title and find everything organized by price, including any current promos or coupons. Choose the quality of book you're looking for (brand new or used) and specify what edition you need. Affinity programs are all integrated with the app.

    It's simple to buy or sell books from directly within the app itself, although you can send yourself an email instead if you'd prefer to do your shopping later. Some of the sites show up rather small on some display, so either use a tablet or forward yourself the links to check out via desktop.

    The app sometimes takes a minute or two to crawl through all the included stores, but it always came through in the end for me. Everything I searched for was found without a hitch.

    If you need to deal with the world of textbooks, make it a little less of a pain with the help of the app.
