If you are a Craigslist user in search of a better method of accessing the site, the good folks from Movela and Pyxis mobile have just the application for you. Craigslist mobile is a new application set to launch in BlackBerry App World any day now as it's just waiting approval.

Craigslist mobile is a full featured client application which allows users to browse and search all of Craigslist as well as bookmark, and reply to posts and much more. Users need not worry about being limited to where they may be able to search as all countries and even categories are supported by the app. We'll keep ya updated on availability, but pricing is going to be a one time payment of $4.99.

Official Craigslist App Coming To BlackBerry App World

63 Comments

I don't really agree with the pricing but I'll get it anyway seeing as I get really good deals with it. I can't wait!

I'm guessing there's already an iPhone app for this - anyone know how much it is? (I'd guess it's either free or 99 cents. Anyone)

Yes I could look, but I'm also trying make a point by posting this.

Well well! Look who's here, HUDSS - the man who sharing illegall stuff on pda4x.com! Which stuff? Themes from HedoneDesign, Elecite and others, also applications and games! Already posted couple hundreds of themes/games/app's, and he is proud of this!!!

@ CrackBerry and theme creators: he just wait for some freebies or giveaways, then all this stuff upload to pda4x.com!

I dont know either of you but this is America this is done everywhere ticket agencies jacking up event prices people buying cell phones on buy one get one and selling it on ebay for the retail price. This goes on all the time. If you don't like charge for the themes

Why be a dumba** and post a link to his site which only further promotes what he does and gives him more traffic? Way to 'really' bring attention to the issue LMAO idiot.

You forgot to mention how I pimp your mother berry26..no one bitches about that and she is not even that good.

The app will be good I'm sure but I can browse CL fine from my tour now. My 8830 didn't cooperate. Don't know how useful the app will be.

NO! I was developing a Craigslist App, what started as a joke, has consumed many hours! I have to say that this does look well constructed. $4.99 is a pretty big price tag, but I'm sure there will be specials that make it less expensive.

Its super easy to browse CL and reply to the postings address by simply clicking it and emailing them. Its a nice app but 4.99 isnt worth it since my BB surfs craigslist just fine...

That is worthless, there is no way I am paying $5 to get an app that'll probably leak memory anyway to see a service that is free and easily viewable on my phone in the first place.

Why pay for an app for a site that can be browsed very easily on the Storm? I do it all the time and I don't need a 5 dollar app for it. I guess they figure there is going to be a few suckers that will go for it!

I understand if the app gave you functionality that you simply didn't have using the browser, but craigslist works just fine in the BB browser, and exceptionally well in Opera. I can't see throwing 5 bucks on an application that is essentially a convenience application. For a buck or two, I could see it, but convenience apps shouldn't cost the same as applications that allow your blackberry to do things that it can't do with the browser.

(hope that mini-rant makes sense)

You spend more than that picking up a #1 from Mc
donalds....Really I'll definately be picking this up- if it makes browsing CL easier and faster- it's worth the money in the long run, especially for heavy CL users. I'm a fan of Movela's previos App for Netflix so if quality wise it's anything close to that I'll be happy

No way I'm going to pay for something when I get the original free. People taking advantage of a free service to make a buck isn't all that unexpected in America I guess.

But I get value from paying for cable. I get more channels that are not available. This app is adding nothing except a middleman. I'm sure you can come up with something better than that poor example! :)

I absolutely love Craiglist and I've bought plenty of things from there. But I must say $4.99 for a site that u can already access from your phone's browser for free seems a little steep to me...IDK about that one, lol

I don't understand why these Blackberry Apps. cost so much! Really $4.99 .... REALLY! I will just use my PC or my iTouch. BB Developers are greedy

In the next release of craigslist mobile, users will be able to post ads DIRECTLY FROM THEIR MOBILE DEVICE. This is a feature you will find in NO OTHER craigslist app regardless of device platform.

Take a picture from your BlackBerry of say, your car, boat, or Christmas tree farm, add your text, and click submit, and you're selling. without ever touching your PC.

Oh, and also, not to be mundane, but we are a real company, and real companies require revenue in order to operate. We'd love to give the app away for free, but then there would be no one to host the app, maintain the app, or enhance the app.

Thanks to those that ARE planning to download the app. We have great plans for future releases, and because of our agreement with craigslist, we are able to do some pretty cool stuff that others aren't allowed to do.

The next release?!?! You should think about getting it refined and THEN charging 5 bucks. A much better marketing idea would be to offer the lame version you have now for free. Get people used to using it, add the new functionality, and THEN charge for it.

The economy is tight. If you plan on being around as a "real" company you better put your thinking caps on. :)

Looks like an awesome application. the craigslist website is TERRIBLE on a mobile device so anything that makes it easier to use craigslist is cool in my book. I have a friend who had a chance to beta test the new version of the Movela Netflix app and the UI in this looks to be in line with that than their original Netflix application, which is a huge plus. I can't wait to try it out!

You could post things for sale from within the app! Otherwise it should be completely free, I'm quite content with the website on my storm.

Also need a Kijiji app!

Only worth the dough if you could post ads from it and use the photos from your camera.

otherwise.. fail.

What an outrage! As a daily craigslist user I don't see how it is free but they will charge for an app. Ill stick to the fricking web sorry!

I can already post from my mobile device if I use the web. So it doesnt make it worth it. I am sorry not trying to be a neg head but it is what it is. I wish your company luck! Great IDEA TOO! Just don't want to pay for something I can already use for free.

If the current web browser offerings for BB weren't so horrible, this wouldn't even be necessary. As it stands however, I'll be plunking down my $4.99.

I can have my searches updated daily using viigo. I can also reply to any postings that interest me as well using it. $5 is hardly worth it when the service is offeresd for free elsewhere. Also I agree that the native browser and opera both work fine for viewing posts. All in all, not a $5 value.

I've been checking on this daily since it was announced that it was a "couple days away" and now it's been about 2 weeks since then. Is this gonna be posted to appworld or not?

I just got it from BlackBerry app world. It looks great and is easy to use. So far, the only problem is that it doesn't seem to allow the user to specify an email account when replying to posts. I have several email accounts set up on my BlackBerry and I don't want to use the default account when replying to a Craigslist post. This is a showstopper for me so I'm going to submit it as feedback.
