tradr, a Tinder-like app for buying or selling used and homemade goods locally is coming to Boston!
The hottest new (free!) app in Boston is being launched from the Harvard Innovation lab this summer, and you’re going to want to check it out! tradr is an interactive social platform, designed to connect friends and neighbors through their stuff. It allows anyone to buy, sell, trade or give away local goods by simply swiping left or right on a deck of images on the smartphones. It’s the perfect tool to help declutter your homes and minds, discover unique products being sold in your neighborhood, and make some extra cash by setting up your own virtual thrift store with a few simple clicks. Unlike Craigslist or Ebay, products on tradr are curated by an algorithm that learns your tastes, so you can finally enjoy the hunt for beautiful local goods.
tradr’s mission is to encourage people to be more thoughtful and mindful of their consumption by providing them with the opportunity to buy locally produced goods, arts and crafts (thereby supporting local producers and the local economy) and reduce wasteful and surplus consumption. After all, “one man’s trash is another man’s treasure.”
The iOS app is still in beta but it can be downloaded for FREE from the App Store. For more information check out the tradr website: http://www.gettradr.com/index.html
