Craigslist (www.craigslist.com) is a popular classified advertisements website, sporting sections covering jobs, housing, services, community, gigs, résumés, and more. Windows Phone currently lacks an official app from Craigslist and thus developers are tasked with filling the gaping hole. Introducing 8list, an officially licensed Craigslist client for Windows Phone 8.
If you're an avid fan of Craigslist as a whole, you're going to want to try out this sweet little app. Not only are you able to maintain different favourite lists to keep everything organised, but posts published on the website are saved in states (the app remembers what you've seen and what's "new"). This is a pretty neat feature to help make the experience a little less cluttered.
Contacting folk through Craigslist is an important part of the service and 8list helps you out by automatically pulling all contact information into a single contact card, which can then be conveniently saved to your phone. But before you contact other users, you need to find what you're looking for – this is where the favourite lists come into play.
Whether you're looking for used vehicles, jobs, properties or numerous categories at once, you can order multiple lists to keep everything organised. Posts themselves can be hidden from view and searches can automatically alert you as to when new posts are detected. Speaking of notifications and whatnot, 8list fully supports the pinning of Live Tiles to your Start screen. These tiles can be of individual posts, favourite lists or searches.
The user interface is intuitive and everything runs as one would expect. We're impressed with both the speed and fluidity of 8list, enabling you to get stuck in with checking out latest classifieds in your local area. If you use the website and own a Windows Phone, you should definitely download and try 8list out.
You can download 8list from the Windows Phone Store for free. Cheers, Mohamed, for the tip!
