SwapMe is an interesting concept; it serves as a clearinghouse for console gamers to trade games for free, and it now has an app for iOS devices.
This new app gives users the ability to list games they’re looking for, search for the games they want, offer up those they’re looking to get rid of, and exchange trade offers with other users. It also offers options for both local (i.e. no mailing necessary) trades as well as nationwide.
SwapMe is available for free on the App Store.
