Indie bookstores on your iPhone

April 20, 2009

Just got an exciting email from IndieBound about their new iPhone app that should be of interest to you all.  And I quote:

Here’s what the app has to offer:

Book Lists
Browse indie bookseller-recommended titles and bestsellers on the Indie Next List and Indie Bestseller Lists.  As you know, Indie Next Lists are updated monthly and Bestsellers weekly.  These automatically update in the app.
Book Search
Search for any in-print book with the comprehensive book search, and buy online from an indie bookstore of your choice.
Store Finder
Find indie bookstores near you with the Store Finder, and search for other independently-owned businesses in your area.
For more information and screenshots, visit http://www.indiebound.org/iphone.  New updates to the application are already in development! Future features include search, browse, and purchase options for e-books, linking your purchase options to your favorite bookstore, and more.
DOWNLOADING
You can find the application in the iTunes store by searching for the keyword “IndieBound,” or follow the link below:
http://itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewSoftware?id=310898838
You can either:
1) Follow this link on your phone to install through the App Store, or
2) Follow this link on your computer, download the app through iTunes, then sync your phone.
You can also review the app and send the link to a friend using either method.
If you have any questions, please contact Matt Supko (matt@bookweb.org).
Thanks so much!”
