aNewDomain — Searching on Craigslist‘s mobile app is even easier than it is on the regular Craigslist. Called the cPro Craigslist Free Client, this app for Android and iOS devices allows powerful Craigslist viewing and posting. The experience it offers is pretty exceptional.
It’s still Craigslist, so of course you have to watch out for African princes who want your banking details and other spammers. But if you can spot a scammer in no time flat, cPro Craigslist Free Client( cPro is short for Craigslist Pro) is the money.
Let me elaborate a bit on scammers, and this of course is not limited to any particular website or situation. Are you looking to rent out a room? You might be contacted by the “perfect” roommate who doesn’t want to move in yet, but she is very pretty, a Bible College student, and she just wants to send you first, last and security rent to secure the room. Uh, HELLO! “If it sounds too good to be true …”
Selling your car? You will be contacted by a U.S. military war hero that will send his factor directly to your house to buy your car sight unseen, since you obviously would not take advantage of one of our Armed Forces men. The problem? Once again, “If it sounds too good to be true … ”
Now, with the caveats out of the way, do you buy, sell and search on Craigslist? Then this is your app!
Created by the folks at Escargot Studios, cPro Craigslist Free Client is attractive and easy to use. Its search features include multi-city search, a photo gallery, listing previews, thumbnails and a really nice map browser.
Of course you can use it to post jobs, too. I found that posting an ad via the cPro Craigslist Free Client app takes under a minute. You can attach photos easily from your camera’s collection or photo albums.
It also supports multiple accounts and all the account management features you’re familiar with on the desktop version. It’s a nice little client, when all is said and done. And it now has social features, too. CPro lets you email or text listings to your contacts and call or text postings directly from the cPro app.
Watch out for spam, but definitely give cPro Craigslist Free Client for Android or cPro Craigslist Mobile Client for Apple iOS a spin. Why wouldn’t you? It’s free. And it’s my choice for today’s aNewDomain app of the day.
