App Magically Turns Craigslist Into a Newspaper -- For iPad and Now iPhone Too

Share Article

Lifelike Apps, an innovative mobile developer focused on creating apps that mimic their real-life counterparts, has announced a much anticipated update to their Lifelike Craig HD app. Lifelike Craig HD version 2.0 is now a universal app allowing the same application to run on the iPad, iPhone and iPod touch. In addition the new version lets users add pictures to their Craigslist postings using the device’s camera, including when using the iPad 2’s new camera. Version 2.0 also takes full advantage of the iPhone 4 Retina display.

Already an established hit, Lifelike Craig has already been a Top-20 iPad Application in the app store, and is primed to stay within such high ranks in the future. The app itself offers users an innovative new way to browse Craigslist on the go by formatting the site to look and feel like a real-life newspaper, while keeping all the advantages the Apple iDevices provide as a digital medium. Lifelike Craig version 2.0, now a universal app, is currently available for download on the Apple App Store for $2.99 for the iPad/iPhone/iPod touch.

While it mimics the look and feel of a real classified newspaper section, Lifelike Craig takes full advantage of every convenience the Apple iDevices menus, filtering, and personalization features provide. For example, bookmarked listings appear as if they were circled with a red pen and listings excluded from a search appear scribbled over. Users are able to post their own classified ads onto Craigslist from within the app and even manage multiple accounts. Furthermore, Lifelike Craig's "Smart Location" feature automatically determines the user's location while "Smart Search" saves the user's previous search inquiries and offers users' suggestions for future searches based on their search history.

"Sure, Lifelike Craig is the best looking Craigslist interface out there. But don't be fooled by the eye candy! It's fast, intuitive, and packs tons of smart features not even available on the Craigslist website, things like auto-location, smart search and displaying favorites as circled ads," said Dotan Saguy, CEO of Lifelikeapps.

Lifelike Craig was developed to make browsing Craigslist as easy and hassle-free as possible. Posting locations are charted via in-app maps, and all images can be viewed at maximum size in gallery-view with a single tap. Users can also reply to interesting classified postings or forward them to friends without ever leaving the app. Lifelike Craig's automatic formatting capabilities ensure that every post users see is comprehensible and easy to read. Lifelike Craig offers mobile shoppers an innovative new avenue through which to browse Craigslist. Lifelike Craig is primed to become the premiere mobile Craigslist browsing utility for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch.
