Ok, I know about the mobile site which is great btw. I love being able to check on books when at yard sales. What I'm wondering is if there will ever be an app or fully functioning mobile site where we can manage our accounts using a phone.

 

Also, there is an app called red laser that is super cool and the app developers are very open to integrating with other sites. It's one of those barcode scanner apps (it works better than any other I've used)... Just think of how wonderful it would be to be able to scan the barcode on the back of a book when adding books... or just searching for books...

Hi Jessica, not a clue as to the answer to your question.  But you could always send in Feedback asking if there is something in the works and if not, possibly suggesting it.  :)

I've been searching for answers since I posted this. Maybe something to do with a certain big shopping site that allows book sites to use their book lists but doesn't want apps competing with their own...  http://bruji.com/articles/2009/07/17/bye-bye-pocketpedia/   and something here... http://www.macworld.com/article/141584/2009/07/delicious_iphone.html

I won't post the other book trading site's link here but basically another book trading site tried to make an app but ran into a wall when it came to amazon. Oh well, doesn't look hopeful.
