    A new app helps travelers that have extra luggage match up with travelers that have unused luggage allowances to help passengers avoid excess baggage charges. The app also allows users to request travelers get them things through social networking, such as, asking a friend traveling to Paris to buy a French skin cream that is not available in the U.S.

    Jib.li organizes these requests, and accomplishes them by making use of unused baggage allowances. By making use of social networking site Facebook, you can ask people on your list that are traveling to a place where you want something delivered either to or from.

    Jib.li was designed because these requests and transactions already exist, and through the app, the creators are aiming to make them efficient and secure.

    The concept of the app is similar to the website airbnb.com, where people rent out their empty home or apartment to people looking for temporary accommodation, but either can't get a hotel because they're full of are trying to travel on a lower budget or have a more authentic travel experience.

    "Airport security is an issue that has not yet been addressed."

    I could see that being a problem.... "Have you packed these bags yourself?"
