    So what do you guys like to use to get the latest listings notifications on your smart phones? I know many of us (myself included until recently getting a Galaxy 5) rely on the threads here on pinside or manually checking the listings online thru their home computers. There are several different apps out there that all claim to be the best/easiest to use, etc. Thoughts?

    PM Skyemont ,, He has the Best app ,, We Tested it .. I Listed my AC/DC Prem NIB 4-Sale , I had Pinball in the title ,, he got an Alert in 2 1/2 minutes .. I Rarely look 4 Pins on C.List due to this New age app crap .. With this Appp,,, if the Pin is Still listed past 2 or 3 day's ,, then No 1 wants it .. That's what i think anyway .. I have a Lost in Space listed ,, Tire Kicker's and Traders w/ Junk are responding .. I just Shop'd and add'd Leds to it .. I need to Reduce the Price to $ 2500.00

    I like your poll structure particularly the fourth element-brought a grin to my face

    I'd be interested in this too...why not just say which one it is?

    I knew this might be an issue. Why would other collectors who might be competing with you, want to share their advantage, right?!

    I use the app called cPRO Craigslist. It works really well.

    It's been a few years since I watched CL closely, but I simply subscribed to the RSS feeds which sent me notifications to my email. I expect you all have posted to Craigs List then waited patiently for your post to appear. What I learned was that CL must "batch" postings on some sort of timetable. However, the RSS feeds did not seem to be bound by that timetable...so quite often, I would receive and RSS feed email before the posting actually appeared on CL.... Good luck and good hunting.
