iGarageSale is the perfect companion to any garage saler… expert or novice! I have found it to be a “must have” for scoping out garage sales! It is extremely user friendly and has a ton of great features that make garage saleing a breeze.
One of my favorite features of the application is that it immediately opens to a map of all the garage sales surroundings your current location. Sooooo helpful! I also really like that you can search for specific items you would like to find at a garage sale. So, if you are looking for Legos, you can search for Legos and it will display all the garage sales that have that key word in their description. The garage sales are pulled from craigslist which allows the ability to search the garage sale’s listing for keywords. Very cool. iGarageSale is everything I want in a garage sale application… in an easy-to-use interface. Guess it doesn’t get much better than that.
What I like about the app:
• The ability to view garage sales that are taking place that day or that week
• You can mark specific sales as “favorites” which then displays them as a different color on the map so you can easily identify them
• You can hide garage sales from the map once you have been to them… which I LOVE… I always forget which ones I have already been to!
• You can get direction from your current location to a specific garage sale
• You can select each garage sale and get specific information about them
• You can E-mail, facebook or twitter a map of your favorited garage sales
There is a free version of the app but I made the plunge and bought the full version… which I’m glad I did. The full version works on both the iPhone and the iPad.
