Selling your old and pre-owned devices whether they be smartphones, tablets, or smartwatches is something which can be done a number of different ways. Commonly used online markets like eBay and Craigslist have served as a means for selling off old devices for years, but one of the easiest and fastest, as well as painless options is neither of these. It’s a site called Swappa. You may or may not have heard of it before, but it’s a marketplace for people to sell their old smartphones, tablets and other devices to people who are looking specifically for those things. Since the entire market is dedicated to just these types of products, it becomes a simple way to buy or sell.
Swappa is now making things even easier for both buyers and sellers alike as they have just launched an Android app onto the Play Store, called Swappa Price, so whether you have something to list or you’re searching for something to grab, it can all be done from your smartphone or tablet, on-the-go, anytime, anywhere as long as you have a data connection. It’s worth mentioning though that buying and selling isn’t handled within the app itself. As soon as you hit the buy or sell button on a product, you’re taken to the mobile website to complete your transaction.
What Swappa Price is really about is an easy way for you to be informed on the current prices (as well as the timeline of prices in the past) for any particular device. The cool thing is that if you’re installing Swappa Price onto a phone you’re planning on selling, it should immediately detect the phone model you have and whether or not it is carrier branded or unlocked, then you can find the current prices that phone or tablet is going for at the time. There is also a FAB search button so you can search for other devices like the Moto 360, making things rather easy. If you’re not looking for yourself you can even share listings with others who can check them out. All in all, it’s a great start for an app. The only thing which could improve it is buying and selling listings happening in the app without having to be redirected to the website. If you’ve got used devices to unload, or you’re looking to upgrade, Swappa Price is a must have install.
