[prMac.com] Boston, MA and Dayton, OH - Verietas Software, the leading company in personal library organization, today announced a strategic partnership with Swap.com, enabling users of Vereitas Software's flagship apps including iBookshelf, My Library, MyBoxOffice, and Disc Tracker, to upload items from their saved libraries directly to Swap.com for online swapping. The integration was released as part of the latest update to these apps for the iPhone and iPad, which enable users to keep a record of their personal media collections.
"Our apps provide an intuitive way for people to keep track of their home media collections," said Joshua Pressnell, Verietas Software founder. "And that has resonated with the community in a way that we couldn't have imagined at the outset, but once we all have our libraries organized, what's next? Our partnership with Swap.com allows our users to carry their books, movies, and CDs beyond their own library and start trading with other people. It's natural partnerships like these that are going to drive the next stages in personal organization and our natural enjoyment of the books, movies, and CDs that we own."
Vereitas Software's apps include iBookshelf, which is designed to track your personal book collection - including both physical and digital copies - and has been ranked within the Top 100 Apps in the Book category since August 2009 with more than 100,000 downloads. The company's My Library app also supports your collections of books, movies, and CDs, and now these applications' users will be able to easily add items to their lists of "Haves" and "Wants" at Swap.com and start swapping for new-to-them media items for just the cost of shipping.
"As we enhance the centuries-old practice of bartering in a Web 2.0 world, we're really trying to make swapping as easy and convenient as possible with initiatives like our mobile application, integration with Facebook, and now through this partnership with Vereitas Software," said Jeff Bennett, CEO of Swap.com. "We're excited to be enabling users of their incredibly popular applications to easily turn the stuff they own into currency to get all the things they want."
