LAS VEGAS, Nevada – March 14, 2014 –  SwapMe Games, a totally unique and intuitive matchmaking app for video game trading, has launched via the iOS App Store for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. Install it for free at  http://appstore.com/swapmegames.

SwapMe Games  is a simple matchmaking tool that helps gamers swap their unwanted games with each other – for free! With the free  SwapMe Games  app, gamers can easily find nearby gamers who have the games they want, and people who want the games they’d like to get rid of. Simply enter the games you have on offer, and the titles you’re looking for, and the app will do the rest.

Gaming can be an expensive hobby. Trading-in and buying used games at retail is one way gamers lower costs, but trading costs can still mount up. Retailers typically offer low trade-in prices while charging premiums for popular used titles. Gamers are often forced to trade in multiple titles for a single new one, or subsidize their trade with cash. With  SwapMe Games , gamers can achieve straight game-for-game trading by being paired specifically with gamers who want their games. If you have Battlefield 4 and want to trade it for Call of Duty: Ghosts, the chances are there’s someone out there willing to make that trade. SwapMe Games ’ ultimate goal is to bring these people together – and it won’t cost them a penny! SwapMe Games  saves you money and keeps you gaming on a budget!
