CraigsList Reader

  • Generic Company Place Holder CraigsList Reader

You can find almost anything on Craiglist--or can you? There's plenty of chaff in with the wheat. CraigsList Reader provides a deep search of Craigslist in a friendly (to some) Microsoft Outlook style. The app is intensely thorough: You can search any listing anywhere, set up notifications, change and save parameter options, and more.

CraigsList Reader works best for people who embark on epic searches of Craigslist's database, as opposed to those who hope to pick out only a few tidbits. The program lets you categorize results, and helps you establish a variety of updates and notifications.

In my experience, CraigsList Reader added a level of complexity that I didn't need; for example, it incorporated many features that I found unnecessary for the basic search I conducted. But intense Craigslist users--and those who are obsessive about categorizing their searches--may find CraigsList Reader helpful.

Note: When this review was first written, this file was free of charge. This download is now a trial version of a $37 product.
