Love it or loathe it - Craigslist is as much a fixture of the buying and selling market as eBay. It's great to sit at home and peruse through the listings while you search for the purple couch to replace the one you just spilled nail polish on. But what do you do when you want to got out on the street to do your searching? To solve that problem Craigslist have introduced Craigslst+ to make it easier when you are browsing, searching and emailing the site using your iPod touch or iPhone.
This version of Craigslist strips it back to concentrate on the really important pieces of information you need on a mobile service. It gets rid of the rather annoying ads and the tricky layouts and, of course, it's totally free. While being stripped back there is no shortage of browsing options. You can view and filter items from over 300 cities and neighborhoods or you can browse by the many categories from art to zippo lighters. The layout is completely free of ads, it's simple and easy to use and boasts a swipe through image gallery. Email options include the ability to call phone numbers from within the app as well as full address/map compatability. Craigslist+ also offers direct to developer support.
It makes complete sense to make a mobile version of Craigslist. Sometimes you just need that information on the spot and that spot could well be away from home base if you are trying to be first off the block for something special. It really is simple to use and the category listings make life very simple while you are hunting for that couch.
