Tech This Out: Buy and sell books with Libro app

If you went to college, you know the pain and agony of spending tons of money on text books. (WJAR)

School is winding down and finals are on the way.

If you went to college, you know the pain and agony of spending tons of money on text books. You also know what it's like to try and sell them back to the book store for next to nothing.

Forget all of that.

There's a new app called Libro that is helping ease the pain of buying and selling specialty books.

But it works for regular books, too.

You can find just about any book on Libro. If you don't find it in your search, you can upload a book into the data base. Uploading a book takes between 10 to 20 seconds.

The app is simple and easy to use.

After spending a lot of money on college text books, Waterford, Connecticut native Randy Rubenstein thought there had to be a better way.

Rubenstein teamed up with a local entrepreneur to design Libro. He then recruited fellow Eastern Connecticut State University students, Jeremy Battye and Ivan Riquelme, to jump on board and help develop the app.

Battye and Riqulme do coding for Libro. The team of four now has the app up and running with more than 10,000 books in the database.

Libro is free on Apple and Android devices.
