Marketplace is like Craigslist. Without the Ugly.

Love Craigslist but hate how painful and ugly it is? I do too. So I created Marketplace. It takes the pain and ugly out and leaves the good stuff in.

Made for Mac - Made by a Mac user, for Mac users. It's simple, straight-forward, and fast. Everything a Mac application should be.

Find Anything - Search across multiple regions and categories. Get all the results in one convenient window. Then narrow your search down even more with built-in filtering.

Choose Favorites - Store the best results and come back to them later. Put off until tomorrow more...

What's New

Version 1.2.6:
  • Fix: Search results would be limited to the first 100
  • Fix: Searches would occasionally crash after multiple runs

Requirements

Mac OS X 10.5 or later

The author has abandoned the application and open-sourced the code:

* Unfortunately, I don't have the time to maintain and support it
* anymore. *But* there's still a group of people using the app, and
* goodness knows, Craigslist still has the ugly.

* I won't be accepting pull requests, but I will happily link to any
* interesting forks that are. Just let me know.

Up until recently, this was a very good and easy to use app. However, it has not been working for the last several months and the developer seems to have gone AWOL and is unresponsive to any contacts.

I suspect Craigslist changed something, but with no support at this time results in a poor grade.

I surely enjoyed this app when it was under development, but now that it has fallen by the wayside it likely best that it be sandbagged and the developer's link cut. Developer does not respond to queries. He's alive and well on Twitter if others want to try and contact him...maybe you'll be lucky enough to get a response, but I doubt it: http://twitter.com/joshaber

After 16 years as a Macintosh user, I must say that the reviews of product here are unfair. It's a very good mac search tool. The best I can find. Anytime a developer/designer can install an application and make money with it on the same day they have found gold. 19 bucks earned me a $2,800 project today right here in Orlando. No, it didn't close the sale for me, but it made sure I was the first person to email that lead. So not only do I highly reccomend Marketplace, I would like to thank the developer for creating it and pricing it so that anyone can purchase it. Good job! So just to be fair, I found 1 minor issue. If you have it checking craigslist very minute it will use some resources, nothing close to say Dreamweaver but it will use 35-40 of your ram. No problem, ram is cheap!

P.S. MacUpdate's Rating stars code is buggy. I give it a 5 for VALUE maybe a 6!

It's Marketplace. With a whole lotta ugly - code, that is.

Without a doubt, the lamest excuse for an app I own. Crashes ALL the time - sometimes within seconds of opening. Otherwise unresponsive, will miss items listed in a search and buggy. When it works, it's just a matter of time before it crashes.

Don't waste your time or money, instead use rss, google reader for CL.

I've had zero trouble with crashes, but I'd like to learn more about your rss techniques...

Never ever updates. Never ever, ever, ever, ever updates the software!!!
Stops responding to emails.
For $20, you should at least be able to get a response. It's funny that his site says "tell me how to make it better." I've told him, told him, and told him as I'm sure plenty of others have. Yet it's been around 2 yrs. since any update at all????
I'm actually begging other users to not buy this. Please don't buy it! If you do, you're just rewarding his non-responsiveness and unwillingness to actually stand behind his product.
Don't do it! Seriously. Please. Please, please don't.
It should be $5 at the most.
I want a refund!

v1.2.6 Not ready for prime time. The program frequently crashes and is buggy. Developer support is not prompt and then inadequate.

I've been very pleased with Marketplace (see full review below) and continue to use it. But recently craigslist seems to have changed something and I no longer get prices in the results listings - I have to click on a result and then see the price in the listing itself. I haven't received a response from the developer regarding the problem as I have in the past. Not sure if he is no longer supporting this software.

Still better than using the CL website directly, but a shame to see support stopped for this great app.

This is an awesome little app! It does one thing and does it very well, and the Developer is constantly working on upgrades and improvements. he even replies when you e-mail him with suggestions, and how cool is that!

I use CraigsList a LOT, and before Marketplace, I;d do a search in one area - no results. Repeat the search in another area - one result - and so on.

Now, I can specify multiple search areas, entire states, even the whole country - and Zip! Marketplace does all the heavy lifting.

Most of the limitations of the app come from CraigsList itself in my experience, so is it perfect? No, but what is?

If you like CraigsList, you'll love Marketplace! As for it costing $20 - it saved me that the first time I used it - everything else is gravy!
