Meet new people and swap your old books!
Bookey is an app that lets you meet new people in your community through book swaps. It uses a magical algorithm to match you with people who are local to you. A match occurs if you like someone's book and they like one of yours.

I taught myself how to code and made Bookey in 5 months.

Got old books that you have nothing to do with? Want to read more books? Want to meet new people in your area, make new friends and swap your books with them? Bookey is an app that allows people to swap their books with others in their community. A big part of the inspiration behind the app is facilitating book exchanges. But an EVEN BIGGER part of the app is about community. Sometimes it can be difficult to meet new people and make new friends in our communities. It doesn't have to be this way. We want to give you the opportunity to meet new people and make new friends, plus you get to swap your old books for ones you haven't read yet! Bookey is all about making connections and strengthening community bonds in your local area. By meeting people with a similar interest in books to you, we hope to spark new conversations and in turn spark new friendships. People are too quick to shut down opportunities to meet strangers, but we'd like to change that. How it works: All you have to do is create an account, then scan the barcode at the back of your book, and this will automatically pick up the front cover, title, author, rating and a short description! Next, you set your location and go to ‘Explore’ to view books in your location. You will be able to see books available in your area here, swipe right to "like" a book and tap on it to view more information. If you "like" someone's book, and they in turn like one of your books, it's a match! And you're then taken to a chat between you and the person where you can message them to meet up to swap your books.

It is a very good idea, would like to see it growth and anytime trending globally
Thank you Juan! If you have any suggestions for growing it, I'm all ears, trying to get a lot of input for it.
Seems to be an interesting stuff. Could I use this for "The best Australian writing" at
and similar services? Also (as I understand) there is no version for Windows Phone devices. Would you make a version for this platform?
What is the best australian writing? We are currently not available on the windows store but are going to make a web application that you will be able to use from a windows phone. This will be released within the next few weeks and will have all the features of the app and more!
