Buying and selling with a mobile app: EggDrop

Boot Camp feature for Wednesday, December 14, 2011

Buying and selling with a mobile app.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp,  a report on gadgets and gear.     Sites like eBay and Craigslist helped to make buying and selling stuff online popular.   Now an app called EggDrop aims to employ the location aware technology in smartphones  to help buyers and sellers connect.   Co-founder and CEO Dan Zheng….says if you have something to sell, just use your phone to snap a picture and use the EggDrop app to post the listing.   And…

“As buyers, on the other hands, finding an item of your interest is really easy too.  We use geo tags so you can see what’s close by you.  We use an offer system, which means buyers can make real time offers to sellers and sellers can accept or decline offers with a real time anonymous communication mechanism.”

EggDrop is available for iPhones and Android phones and you can find it on the Web at eggdropapp.com.   You can find us at BootCamp.com.   I’m Fred Fishkin.
