  • The basic idea...

    "The basic idea behind open source is very simple. When programmers on the Internet can read, redistribute, and modify the source for a piece of software, it evolves. People improve it, people adapt it, people fix bugs. And this can happen at a speed that, if one is used to the slow pace of conventional software development, seems astonishing...
    ...The Open Source pages exist to make this case to the commercial world."    - Introduction to Open Source - www.opensource.org

    Details: Just Craigslist

    market download Just Craigslist
    A simple, open source app that allows you to search posts on Craigslist through the RSS feeds.

    This app allows you to search Craigslist and save on bandwidth at the same time. The search is only text, through the RSS feed, which presents you with a list of your search criteria. When you select a posting that you wish to see, it will be displayed and allows you to save on mobile data, as only a small picture of the item is loaded with a price, date, and description (if provided by the poster). You can also click the web browser button to open and view the full post if you desire! With simple colors and controls, this helps you focus on what is really important: the posts!

    At this time, this app can only display searches from one city or location at a time. As it uses the RSS feeds, it can also only search the "For Sale" categories. This means that you cannot use this app to search categories such as Gigs, Jobs, Personals, forums, or services. I apologize for this inconvenience. But, if you are looking for a quick, bandwidth friendly way to search Craigslist for items that are for sale, then this app is for you!

    Other than the Craigslist postings, there are NO ADVERTISEMENTS!

    Starting with version 1.6, you now can change the colors and backgrounds in the settings menu!

    You are welcome to stop by the Github (link in app) or website (link in app) to see progress for new features, or if you are into open source coding, you are welcome to submit pull requests and get involved!
