Amazon released today the Amazon Student App for iOS devices, which include the iPhone, iPod, and iPad devices. The application will allow users to “check prices, buy and sell textbooks and more from anywhere.” The area of students has been a very focused view for Amazon of late. Maybe this is their best one yet.
Check out a few features of this handy application:
- Instant Price Checks: Scan a barcode—check a price: It’s that easy. Shop smarter and compare prices on textbooks and everything else you buy, no matter where you are. Access Amazon.com’s low prices and vast selection to buy books, music, DVDs, electronics, apparel, and just about anything else from your phone.
- Sell Your Stuff: Turn your used stuff into Amazon.com Gift Cards. Just scan a textbook, game, movie, or gadget you no longer need and see the trade-in value for any eligible item. Ship it for free and get an Amazon.com Gift Card to spend on millions of items on Amazon.com.
- FREE Two-Day Shipping: The Amazon Student program offers college students FREE Two-Day Shipping for six months with Amazon Prime shipping benefits.
The application is available today for free and requires iOS 3.0 or later. For those interested in downloading, visit iTunes.
