Swappy App review: swap items with others



Most of us have a few boxes, or more, of items we really don't use or need but they're still in great shape so we feel bad throwing them away. The Swappy App for your iPod touch, iPad, and iPhone is the perfect solution because it gives you a way to swap items with people located nearby. With this app you can get rid of the items you don't want and get the ones you've been wanting but didn't have the money or space for it.

A Community of Like-Minded People

The Swappy App is able to instantly connect you with a community of like-minded people that have items they’re looking to swap. What’s cool is that you can find some really unique and hard-to-find items through the app as you never know what kind of treasure people are looking to part with. The way the app works is that you take a picture of the item you want to swap for another. Next add a very brief description of it and then you are ready to publish your listing. There are all kinds of items on the app in a variety of categories such as housewares, sporting good items, clothing items, videogames, books, and so much more. The listings are always changing too so you’ll want to check in on a regular basis.

The Swapping Experience

Once you log into the Swappy App you'll quickly be able to check out all the items listed in your area. You can like anything that catches your eye and if that person happens to like your item back then a swap can be made. You've got the ability to pass and like items anonymously so no one ever has to know it's you. Send messages to other users and you will receive notification when your item is liked.
