-- Cheap-Textbooks.com, one of the Internets oldest textbook price comparison sites has expanded its price comparison service with the addition of a textbook application for Android. “We are excited to bring the power of our price search tool to students in this portable application. Being able to lookup local and online prices for used and rented textbooks on their phone will be a big savings tool” says Bob Jones, Founder of Cheap-Textbooks.com. “No more standing in a bookstore trying to decide if the price is fair. This technology lets students scan a bar code, speak or type the books title or ISBN and easily access the lowest priced textbooks online, at local bookshops, campus bookstores, even libraries and then rent or buy textbooks right from the phone.”
The Android application reports the lowest rental, used, new, eBook and international version prices from over 30 online book stores. Using the phones location technology the application reports the price at local book stores and even shows availability at local libraries.
