Damn good garage sale finder I do a lot of online retail flipping things on eBay and Amazon. I used to always drive around trying to find good places to pick up new inventory with no luck. This app truly gave me a treasure map I could follow around in order to plan my route when scouting. It has a very convenient Google Maps link with each site, coloration of map markers, and route optimization. It has a website version too, so that whether I am in the field mapping things out or at home, I'll have easy access to my destinations.
Extremely helpful app until I upgraded I love this app, and I have found a lots of great sales on it. It's easy to use, and saves me time because I was using 3-4 similar services just to get most of the same information here. I decided the paid upgrade would be worth it, but immediately after it was installed, the app crashed the first time after I tried to save an address for my route map. This is is currently an ongoing issue, and now will sometimes crash after looking at just sale details and then returning to the map.
I think this is a great app. I just wish it had more features to offer for free. I understand there are development costs, but still. Only other issue I have is I've hit a few in my area that aren't actually doing anything the day I've driven by. Might be an issue with craigslist, but there should be a feature that allows a user to report a garage sale that isn't actually going on.
Bummer. I miss when this was freeware. I downloaded it for my mom and she never updates apps, so I will have to tell her not to update this one. Let me download it, but won't let me search without telling me I have to pay 1.99 as it is an "advanced feature." A load of bull. There are other apps out there that did the same thing this one did before it started needing pocket change. If you have an old version, NEVER update. If you haven't downloaded though, don't bother, go find another. A waste of time.
EDIT: Still haven't updated. Still crashing. No word from Dev. Shame! Would like my money refunded. Looks like it should be an amazing app. But, doesn't let you test full features without SUBSCRIBING. Crashing on EVERY search! And can't find way to refund subscription. I don't recommend this app.
Basic functionality is great ;could be improved The basic functionality of getting the sales from Craigslist and putting them on a map works OK. But it just puts them on the map in the order you put them on, without proximity or grouping them together efficiently. The interface isn't very granular if you have a number of sales together. It would be nice if I could annotate. It would be nice if I could mark a sale as visited rather than just take it off the list. It seems to default to Saturday rather than whatever day it is. But it's OK.
