Not bad

CraigsList was one of the first websites to publish classifieds online, and it remains very popular. If you're one of its thousands of users, you're going to love this app.

CraigsList Reader is a desktop client that connects to the CraigsList site. It enables you to perform searches on the site – based on keywords - and browse results in an Outlook-style interface, which makes the whole process much more comfortable.

The program lets you filter searches by location and category, as well as the date the ad was published. The search itself can take quite a long time, depending on what you're looking for, but once the results list is completely generated, it's really handy to manage and makes ad browsing a breeze. You can also mark any given ad as Favorites, or set an notification to check for certain ads according to a time interval.

Generally speaking, CraigsList Reader is an excellent program for all CraigsList users. On the downside, it needs some tweaking and fine-tuning on the interface, because it often shows glitches – lines that disappear, messages that overlap each other – that can ruin user experience.

CraigsList Reader is a desktop client that makes the CraigsList website easier to search and browse.
