Top Android App: CraigsNotifica Craigslist

Top Android App: CraigsNotifica Craigslist

If you love to use Craigslist to find all sorts of great items, you’ve got a new best friend in the Android app CraigsNotifica (Craigslist).  The setup allows you to get notifications based on the search and filter parameters you set.  Forget searching over and over again, now you can get the best deals as soon as they are posted. Thank you to TigerAngel2 for pointing this app out to us!

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.

  1. I just switched phones from htc incredible to Droid 2 global and there is no app for craigslistnotifica. Can you help me. I loved that app. I have to have it. Plebe help

    • @vincent I’m having trouble finding this app as well. I know it has gone through a few name changes but I’m not seeing it now. I’ll follow-up if that changes.

  2. +1. Does anyone know source where i can download it from directly. Looks like it’s been removed from Android Market and it’s a shame, because it’s the best CL app out there

  3. I had this app on my last android phone, got a new one, water damage. Anyways, loved the app, can’t download it again. Market won’t find it, and when I click the link here, says not found. Please help, miss this app.

  4. I had to have my phone reset as well and can’t find this app either. Please let us know if you find it. I used to love it.

  5. There’s another alternative available for Craigslist app for Android :

    iCraigslist @ http://icraigslist.us

    It’s a webapp, so simply open it with your browser, there is nothing to download on install. Since it’s a webapp, it works well from most of browser also, e.g. iPhone, iPod, iPad, PCs, etc.

    They have pretty interesting additional features as well :

    - Priority Ads : http://www.icraigslist.us/whatisthispa.html
    - Search Agent : http://www.icraigslist.us/searchagent.html

    Their search agent implementation is server side job, hence won’t drain your phone battery and bandwith.

    Hope you all find it pretty useful as well as I do …

    Enjoy !

  6. Great!

  7. Thank u. Very helpful.

  8. I found it on the Android Market. It’s not listed as CraigsNotifica. It’s listed this time as Craigslist. Where the developer name is normally listed on the search results, “Notification” is listed. The developer’s web page is http://craigslist-notification.mufumbo.com. Developers email is craigsnotifica@mufumbo.com.
