With this app you will always be notified about the items and deals that you truly care about. Forget about all of the other posts on Craigslist that you’d rather not sift through.
When you initially open the app, you’ll want to hit Menu > Add. Type in the search you’d like to perform, for example “golf clubs.” You can check off whether or not you’d like the results to return only posts with an image or the keywords in the title. Furthermore, you can specify the category and subcategory that you would like to search in (to search all categories, just leave the default options). Additionally, you can setup a price range that you are willing to pay to help narrow your search. Now click Save.
When you return to the main screen, you’ll see your saved Search Notification. This section will show you the details of each search along with how many articles are unread, so that you can be on top of the best possible deals by seeing the posts first.
The ability to view entire posts and pictures within the native app makes CraigsNotifica extremely useful. You’ll also find convenient buttons placed at the bottom of each post. You can navigate to other posts within your searched criteria by using the up and down arrows. You can favorite a post by clicking the star, in order to come back to it later. Also, the envelope icon allows you to contact the seller/poster using your preferred application (Gmail or other email). Lastly, the purple peace sign icon will take you to the official posting on the Craigslist website. If you’d like to share the post with a friend, there is a convenient option for email/sms in the Menu.
If you love finding what you need on Craigslist, you should definitely download CraigsNotifica. If it helps you save money in the long-run, consider donating to the developer! Any questions/comments, contact the developer on Twitter.
