  • When a book is selected from a result, CompareEverywhere looks for it at local stores, libraries, and online stores. Nearby libraries are found by sending the user’s location and an identifier for the item to the WorldCat API.
  • When a library is selected, a link to the library catalog (labeled Seller website in this emulator, but renamed Library in the live app), driving directions, a link to call the site from the mobile device.
  • CompareEverywhere launched along with the first public release of the Android application on the T-Mobile G1 phone. At that time, every barcode it scanned resulted in a search sent to the WorldCat API to look up the UPC for the barcode as a WorldCat ISBN search. API traffic jumped by an order of magnitude.
