Buying Kindle books at the physical bookstore

Update: The app is now available on the store:

Some people think it’s awkward taking photos of books or type the title to search Amazon right in the bookstore. When you scan a book with this app, you can instantly Google it, read reviews from Guardian, NPR, NY Times, and then get it for your Kindle. Or iBooks. Or any custom site you pick.

Or maybe you just like the cover and want to add it to your “Nice book covers” board on Pinterest.

I also added a realtime feed so you can check out the books other people find in other bookstores near you. So you can let them do the book finding for you while you’re stuck in traffic.

Leave your email here if you want me to tell you when it’s out.

(I made a similar app a few years ago, but I thought I’d make it fully native – with Swift)

A parked car projector

Everything about parked cars is boring. Finding a spot. Paying for it. Walking past parked cars. If you install a free parked car projector, it will display street art by local artists, sometimes even live, as they create it. And the occasional location-aware ad, like this one. You also park for free, in a designated projector parking spot.
