Hmm. I like their name, but I’m not really in on the bashing of Craigslist. Just because someone figured out a pretty simple and brilliant formula does not make something bad. I like that CL doesn’t change… it doesn’t have to change. Some sites get over-designed and very user-unfriendly. CL is simple and to the point.
I am almost positive CL does have some mobile app… I think it costs money & I was too whatever to actually buy it. The main times I actually use CL is when I am hunting for jobs or apartments, neither of which I really want to just do on the go. I guess if I was just desperately seeking random chairs and office equipment, this feature would become very necessary. I’d probably only use a mobile CL to read Missed Connections on the bus.
So, this seems pretty cool as a roving flea sale. But as something to topple the beloved Craigslist? I doubt that.
Although…. I do get annoyed at times at Snopes. Now, that’s a 90s site. But again, I can’t hate on people for just using what has always worked. Seems counterintuitive. “Business is great; let’s change everything!!!!”
