Textbook Apps
Going to college can be expensive and buying books either new or used for schools can really break the bank.  The average costs of books per year is approximately $1,200. Well, a new app, created by Tempe resident Gabriel Cornejo, allows college student to save money on textbooks.

He says his app, which is much like, will save students up to 50%. To test it out, he found a book at the ASU bookstore for $160, and using his app, he found the same book being sold 2nd hand for $7.00. He also tested his app further by pricing out 39 books at the ASU bookstore for $8,000 total. He then used his app to find those exact 39 books at a total cost of $1,800. 

He can also help students buy previous and new editions at the fraction of the price. He warns that publishers seem to come out with new editions every other year to keep students buying new. He also warns students that buying the digital version isn't always cheaper. This is a free app and he teaches us how it works. It also consists of social networking functions since he believes your social network begins in college.   

The easy-to-use app can be downloaded from the Apple App Store. To learn more, visit
