iCandyApps has released their newest application for the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad – Craigslist! The app is FREE for a limited time; with this in mind, you should head over to the App Store immediately if you’re familiar with the website version. Not only does the application do everything the website does; in my opinion, it also provides the user with a whole better user interface. The app is listed under Apple’s “Lifestyle” category and is currently rated nearly 4 stars on the App Store. It was last updated on October 19th, 2011 & its current version is 1.1.
The first thing I noticed when launching the application was the UI. It looks amazing! The developers have done a miraculous job of laying-out everything the user needs; right on the “home page.” In total, there are 8 categories or options on the screen when you launch the application; in addition, there is also 1 “Favourites” option next to the other 8.
Not only does the user have the option to create a post immediately, he/she is able to jump into; for example: the “For Sale”, “Housing”, “Jobs”, “Services”, or “Community” option straight away. I like this feature because as it allows users to find what they’re looking for without a hesitation. Equally important, the user is also capable of changing they’re desired location in an instant – straight from the home page.
Once a user finds what they’re looking for, they can then either reply to the post, add it to their favorites, or even send the post to a friend, relative, or even family. All this doesn’t take any time what-so-ever. If you were to ask me what the difference is between the app & the actual website, I would answer with a succinct reply, “There is no difference.”
There is a minor thing that bugs me every now and then; specifically, the when I want to filter sales on Craigslist! by adding minimum & maximum prices. Of course, there is a way of doing it, and this way is by tapping on search, then advanced search, and then, finally, adding all your filters. However, I think the developers should add a much simpler way of doing this. I must admit, it took me quite some time to figure out how to filter searches.
Craigslist! is a fantastic application; regardless, of one small minor feature. The app’s design was clearly designed with a succinct purpose: to make the app as simple looking, yet innovative looking as possible.
