The ranks of iPhone client apps for the Craigslist online classified service grew a little larger this week, as CraigsPal made its App Store debut.
The $1 app from Visceral Labs offers iPhone and iPod touch users the ability to search or browse through the classifieds at Craigslist. Users can bookmark their favorite searches to refer to later as well as e-mail listings to others. CraigsPal also lets you post your own ads, with the ability to insert pictures you’ve taken with the iPhone’s built-in camera. Tap a phone number in a Craigslist listing, and the iPhone will dial the number; address links will take you to the device’s Maps feature.
Update at 9:05 a.m. on January 24: Visceral Labs just dropped me a line to tell me that the CraigsPal name has been changed to Craigster, owing to the fact that someone else had already trademarked the CraigsPal name. On the bright side, this may well be a record for Fastest iPhone App Name Change that will never be topped in our lifetime.
Other apps of interest that were recently added to the App Store include:
Vudu Movie Catalog, from Vudu: This free app for owners of the Vudu set-top box lets you browse through the movie catalog offered through the streaming movie service; once you rent or purchase the movie on your phone, it’s downloaded to your Vudu box at home.
Quadratic, from simpaddico: The $1 utility solves quadratic equations with real or imaginary roots.
Analytics, from Zap Bang Done: The free utility lets you check your Google Analytics account from your iPhone; a $4 pro version features 19 reports and the ability to run reports by date.
