TextbookMe – Find Textbooks Online at Cheap Prices
People spend a lot of time to buy a single book as we make it a point to thoroughly analyze costs before making a purchase. Finding the lowest price for your textbooks has always been a challenge. This task is now made easier with an app named ‘TextbookMe’. The app simplifies your work by displaying a list of online stores along with the price of the particular book you are searching for. The app is useful for anyone who reads and is specially designed to save you a lot of money.
What’s the app about?
TextbookMe is an Android app which helps you search for the books you require. The app provides you with the list of online stores where it is available, so that you can compare the prices at various stores before you buy them. The app belongs to the Education category in the Google Play store.
How does the app work?
Tap open the app to find the 2 select options. Using the ‘Search by Title, Author or ISBN’option you can find the right book by specifying the author’s name, ISBN or the title of the book. The app displays the online stores which have the book, along with the cost. The price results in the app also show you whether the book is new or used. All you’ve got to do is purchase the book after comparing the prices.
By choosing the ‘Scan a Book’s Barcode’ option you can just scan the barcode of the book that you see in a store, and TextbookMe instantly displays the relevant list for you. To use this option, you have to install the barcode scanner. The app gives a beep sound once you scan the barcode, to let you know that the scanning is complete. The name of the purchased book is stored in the ‘My List’ option of the app, helping you keep track of your purchases.
Special features of the app:
The user interface of TextbookMe is designed to offer great flexibility. The help section answers many common queries, which is very useful. The interesting attribute in TextbookMe is that when your results are displayed, there is even an option to click a link and purchase the book from the website of your choice. It would be great if the app had more options to filter the price. Anyway, it is definitely worth the time, money and energy you would be spending otherwise, looking up books on your own.
TextbookMe is a free app that requires an Android version of 2.2 or later.
