Garage Sales by GSALR.com
This app has been my go to app for a long time. It pulls ads from Craigslist, yardsales.net, oodle.com, estatesales.org and its own website gsalr.com. So may have a few more sales then the other apps I’ve tried, that’s why I liked it. When you first open it shows you a map with a little blue dot showing your current location. All the red little signs shown around you are sales! You can set a filter to only show you the sales on a certain day of the current week as well (don’t want to show up at a location for a sale that wont be happing for a few days).
You can then click on each sign to pull up the ad to see if it sounds good, then click favorite (little heart) if it’s one you are interested in. After you have picked some you can then filter the map to just show your favorites. Then I just click on the one I want and get directions, which works just like any map app.
Some of the other cool features are the viewing options. You can see all the sales on a map of course and to me that works the best. But you can also view as a list or by photos (kinda cool if you are looking for something special). You can even add a sale that you found by another method and is not shown.
Another neat feature is that that you can search by keywords. Say if you are looking for hmmmm, legos? Type in legos and it will bring up all the garage sales in your area that mention legos. How cool is that?
The free version has an ad at the top and within the garage sale detail page but it has never bothered me. If you don’t like it they offer a subscription to remove the ads.
Here is a link to find it in the itunes store for iPhones and iPads
