What's it do?

Reverse product search. Search Amazon's listings by price. Enter any price and my app will give you results of items for that exact amount. Sort of a toy, but can be useful for white elephant gifts or if you need to bring your cart up to get free shipping.

It was a school project. It was my wife's idea.
