Archive for the ‘Yard Sale Apps and Websites’ Category

I have an android phone, so the other day I searched the Google Play store to see what free Yard Sale Android Apps were available. Disclosure: I did not download any of them, or try any of them yet. I did read about the apps (and the reviews posted by users).

I found the following free yard sale Android Apps to be the most potentially helpful:

1. Yard Sale Treasure Map— “quickly find the garage sales near you! You can search day by day, view detailed sale info, get directions to each sale, and plot sales from other sources to keep you organized.”  This was rated 4.2 stars and some of the comments were: “awesome app”, “so much easier to do my treasure hunting with this new application”, and “the best yard and garage sale program ever”. I think, if I download one of the apps, this might be the first one I try!

2.Garage Sale Rover Free— “Locate local garage sales, yard sales, tag sales, and estate sales on a map. We have created what some consider to be the ultimate garage sale locator and map tool.” Also rated 4.2 stars. Reviews say, “I have found this app very useful — There are more listings than my local paper” and “has saved me a lot of time and gas when physical signs are inadequate or confusing”.

3.Shpock— Somewhat different type of app. “With shpock you’ll find the most beautiful things in your neighborhood and sell your things quickly to people around you.” I would also be curious to give this app a try when I have time. Rated, again 4.2 stars. . .Reviews: “Already bought a few things and am happy with the way the transactions work” and “I could browse stuff on Shpock all day!” Please post in the comment section if you have tried this yard sale app–it seems like more of a marketplace for buying and selling.

Given that more people are accessing the web through cell phones than ever before, yard sale apps are not going anywhere. In fact, new ones will probably be developed all the time. Please feel free to post your favorites below. If you have an Iphone, what yard sale apps do you find useful?
