For years, Swappa has been known as one of the best and easiest ways to buy and sell used electronic devices on the internet. Their website makes it simple and easy to not only browse through devices that are for sale, but also getting paid for selling that phone or a tablet that’s been sitting in your desk drawer for a year. They are also known for their great team, who assist in making it feel safe and inviting to conduct transactions through their website. Swappa has now matured from not only buying and selling phones and tablets to now being able to buy and sell VR headsets, wearables, and Chromebooks. In the past, this all worked okay going through a desktop browser or through a mobile browser. Now, Swappa is hoping that their new Android application is not only going to make things easier, but possibly more accessible for those who prefer a more streamlined interface through an app. It’s also worth noting that this is different from the “Swappa Price” app that was launched last Summer, which would only serve as a means to figure out what your device was worth.
When you first open the Swappa app, you are greeted with a list of carriers at the top. This will help you find or sell a device that is is tied to one of the wireless carriers. If you’d prefer to buy or sell an unlocked device, that option is there too. Navigating down, you can choose from different categories including: Unlocked Devices, Tablets, Chromebook and Wearables. You have the option of selecting from a device in one of those categories, or, if you know already what you want to buy or sell, you can select the search option from the top right and type in what you are looking for. After you’ve selected the device, and just like the Swappa website, you can scroll through the various listings to find the device that your are looking to buy.
If you’d rather sell that particular device, tapping on the circular plus icon at the bottom right will take you to the “Create Listing” page to fill out the information needed to list your device. In addition to buying and selling, you can also view your profile which will include things like location, Swappa rating, my listings and feedback. Overall, using the application is very simple and intuitive allowing you to buy or sell items in minutes. It’s nice to know that there is an additional option available to sell devices through Swappa over an app rather then through the mobile version of their website. If you are thinking about buying or selling any gadgets in the near future, click on the Google Play button down below to grab the app from the Google Play Store.
