News: PBS Cruise, Market Madness, iPhone app

Ahoy, PBS Mateys! Set Sail on a Cruise to the Bahamas for PBS Members, February 4 – 9, 2012.  Your Tour Guides have been busy arranging a Cruise to the Bahamas for members and their guests sailing from Jacksonville, Florida in February 2012.  Come and meet friends from PBS and enjoy 5 days on a wonderful cruise, with special get-togethers and lots of fun surprises and activities.  Register for the cruise on the webpage the travel agency has set up.  For information from a Cruise Committee Tour Guide, send an email to pbscruise@hotmail.com or post in the Discussion Forum topicNote: Please don’t send in Feedback, as PaperBackSwap is not coordinating this event.

Market Madness means you can win free book credits! Don’t start your holiday shopping before checking out the PBS Market selections of New Overstock books and brand-new Super Sellers – inventory is updated continuously.  And during Market Madness, your Market purchases may win you free book credits! Beginning November 6th, each Market book purchased will count for one entry in a random drawing.  Every Friday (beginning Nov 12th) until the end of the year, two lucky Market purchasers will each get 5 free credits.  That means if you buy 5 books (shipped separately or together), you’ll have 5 “tickets” in that week’s random drawing.  Remember that it’s much more economical to buy multiple books in a shipment, so group your purchases to save!

iPhone app now available! iPhone users,we’re happy to announce that member Gabriel Cox has created the Mobile Book Swap app, available in the App Store for a measly $1.99 .  We demo’d it in beta and were blown away. The crowning feature is the ability to scan – scan an ISBN to see how many wishers there are, or to add the book to your own Wish List, or to post it to your Bookshelf.  Find the app in the App store by searching for “Paperbackswap” or “Book Swap.” Gabriel tells us he has an Android version in the works also.  If you are developing a mobile app for PBS or SwapaCD or SwapaDVD, please let us know.

    Can your api for paperbacks or cd’s or dvd’s be used to develop an iPhone or Android app to allow this data to be offered to smartphone users?
