If you are buying, selling, or job hunting, the Craigslist app has you covered. And, you can have it all at your fingertips anywhere and anyplace. This app, which is featured on our list of the Best iPhone and iPad apps for job hunters, will literally look like a newspaper classified ad on your mobile device. This app is a real standout thanks to the many great features. It will automatically figure out where you are and then display all the categories available in your locale. If you want, you can choose to set your location manually instead and even save other locations that you use on a regular basis.
To make life easy you can save searches and then call them up with just one tap. When using the search feature, you can search multiple locations at one time. The Craigslist app for iPhone and iPad really gives you that feeling of a traditional newspaper classified section as you’re able to circle ads with your finger and cross off those that don’t interest you with a Z finger movement. It’s as if you’re sitting at the table with a red marker as you go through the listings.
Other cool features include the ability to forward ads to your contacts, the ability to reply to an ad without having to leave the app, and even a pinch and zoom feature so you can really check out the listing in full. When using this app on the iPhone you’ll be able to make use of the Retina display as well. Perhaps selling is more what you’re looking to do with Craigslist and if that’s the case this app makes that task easy as well.
You can easily post to Craigslist without having to leave the app. As well, you can take a picture of your item using your iPhone or iPad 2 camera. It doesn’t get much easier than that! If you’ve got multiple Craigslist accounts, not a problem, as you can manage them all through the app. This app makes for a convenient tool when it comes to staying on top of classified listings and information while on the go.
