Amazon continues its assault on mobile, as it is now bringing its student app to Android and this will enable kids to potentially save on those pricey textbooks.
The aptly named Amazon Student app will enable students to price-check textbooks by scanning the barcode and you’ll be able to buy it with one click. Using this app will also give students a free six-month Amazon Prime membership and this is pretty darn cool because it gives you free two-day shipping on all your purchases.
It’s not just text books though, as you can use it to check prices of other items (not the first time we’ve seen that from Amazon). You can also use the trade-in program to sell your textbook back to Amazon for other books, products or an Amazon gift card. The app is already available on iOS but you Android students can now use it.
