Finding Item Descriptions With Your Smartphone
This one may be something everyone other than me figured out long ago, but I’m still pretty excited to have discovered it.
Last night, I volunteered at an auction, and bought a few raffle tickets. Miracle of miracles, I won the second-place prize: a countertop wine refrigerator. I’m also in the middle of procurement for the auction at my kid’s school, so I thought I’d just leave this packed up, and donate it to that (we’re going to package it with 8 nice bottles of wine).
But when I went to enter it into our school’s SchoolAuction.net website, I realized I had no description text - the school at whose auction I had won it at had not bothered to enter one, and so I had nothing to crib from.
Enter the Amazon app on my smartphone. I scanned the barcode, and it instantly took me to the product page for this item on the Amazon website. And there was a perfectly suitable description I could use as inspiration. Whee!
The Amazon app is available for iPhones and Android smartphones.
