Mobile phone users considering upgrading to a new phone can now download Yippity, the mobile device recycling app that provides them with a simple means of disposing of phones in an environmentally friendly way – and get paid for doing so. Yippity monitors the value of a specific smartphone, gives an accurate quote of how much it’s worth and guides users through a simple, free process that allows them to safely dispose of their devices and receive payment for doing so. The app – the only one of its kind currently available for Android -- is currently available via the Google Play store, with a mobile web version for Blackberry and iPhone at http://www.yippity.com.
While most online recycling services require consumers to proactively search for their particular device, Yippity automatically recognizes a user’s phone, whether it’s an HTC Thunderbolt Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket, iPhone or other. This results in a self-identification of each unique handset, allowing Yippity to provide an accurate quote for the value of the device. Once the value is calculated Yippity makes it easy to recycle or sell the phone by providing postage-paid shipping materials, complete and secure data wiping, and fast payment via either check or PayPal – for the amount originally promised.
“It’s not that people don’t want to recycle mobile phones, but many either don’t know how to or find it too much of a hassle. We’ve solved that problem with Yippity, which brings mobile recycling to the masses through a unique, easy-to-use app,” explained Jennifer Svensson, chief executive officer of VertiGO Solutions, the company behind Yippity. “Consumers no longer have to go to the local big box store or try to find their device listing on a website. They can just launch Yippity and get an on-the-spot value of their device – simply, quickly and accurately.”
Consumers with a non-Android device such as iPhone or Blackberry can also use Yippity to gauge the value of their phones. The Yippity mobile website, located at http://www.yippity.com, includes all of the features and functionality of the Android app. Users can simply visit http://www.yippity.com on their phones, follow a step-by-step process similar to the one featured in the app – including the process involving accurate device identification -- and automatically receive the value of their device and shipping instructions.
Yippity is the cute robot app that lives on your phone, monitors its value, and makes it easy to safely and effectively recycle mobile devices. With Yippity consumers can quickly and accurately gauge the value of a specific phone, send it to be recycled, and receive fast payment in return. Developed by Washington, D.C.-based VertiGO Solutions, Yippity is currently available for iPhone, Android and other mobile devices.
