(ATLANTA, Apr. 22, 2015) — WorthPoint (www.WorthPoint.com), the Internet’s largest resource for identifying and finding the value of subscribers’ art, antiques and collectibles, has announced the release of its new 2015 iOS app for iPad and iPhone, allowing antiques and collectibles enthusiasts access to the company’s huge online database of values records
The main function of the WorthPoint app is to provides mobile access to its Worthopedia™—the leading price guide for art, antiques and collectibles with more than 230 million individual sales records from auction houses, brick-and-mortar and virtual marketplaces and eBay® (access to realized prices through the Worthopedia requires a paid subscription; a free trial is offered through the WorthPoint website).
WorthPoint is the most reliable online and mobile source for valuing antiques and collectibles for the purpose of selling or buying. The WorthPoint app is especially well-suited for those who need data on-the-go at venues such as estate/garage sales, flea markets, thrift shops, auctions, and antique stores/malls. With a quick touch or two, users can locate the nearest shopping venue, obtain values and reference information on virtually any collectible item, and get up-to-the-minute collectible news and informative articles.
“We know that our subscribers need to know the value of items when they are in the field at shopping at antique stores and thrift shops or literally out in the field—like the Brimfield and Round Top antique shows that are held in pastures,” said WorthPoint founder and CEO Will Seippel. “This new version of our app will provide identification and value information much faster and in an easier-to-read format.”
The new version of the WorthPoint 2015 iOS app for iPad and iPhone includes the following features:
- Updated to support the latest iOS devices, including the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus;
- Now using the latest iOS 8;
- Redesigned from the bottom up;
- Faster search results;
- Larger detail images;
- Search all items for free and see detailed pricing with a paid subscription;
- Fixed crashing on certain devices;
- Bug fixes and other improvements.
“We have listened to our subscribers and members of our users’ group to decide how to improve the app and have taken their advice to heart,” Seippel said. “This new version of the app fixes the bugs they have reported and anticipates their needs going forward.”
Now that the WorthPoint development team has released the iOS app, they have turned their attention to finishing up the company’s first Android app, which will be releases this summer.
