Craigs7 Pro is a comprehensive Craigslist app for Windows Phone 7
Windows Phone 7 is slowly starting to have most of the apps that are deemed essential covered, and having a dedicated Craigslist icon is certainly high on that list. Craigs7 Pro is here to fill the void - instead of having to go to the popular online classifieds portal, and browse indefinitely, you can use a standalone app in WP7 now.

You can browse all categories in Craigslist, and search for items that interest you, just like in the web version. Ads can be starred and searches saved, together with all the info and pictures in them. The added value of Craigs7 Pro is that it makes finding your way around Craigslist easier than scrolling through the website, and has looks consistent with the streamlined WP7. Another bonus feature is the integration with Shopwise, which is a price comparison engine with hundreds of online retailers in its database, but works for US classifieds only. Here's the list of all options:

- Browse and search all categories that Craigslist supports
- Provides enhanced search filters in all categories to easily narrow down the search results (e.g. in housing you can search by number of bedroom, cats/dogs allowed, ads with images, personals by age etc.)
- View the complete ad with all the details and pictures. Enhanced gesture support to easily view the pictures.
- View and navigate search results with ease.
- Post listings to craigslist
- Respond to ads directly, share the link with friends and family and bookmark your favorite ad.
- Supports all the Craigslist locations in US/Canada/Europe.
- Integrated with Shopwise to search 100s of online retailers. (US Only for now)

We are big fans of Craigslist, be it only for the hilarious "best-of-craigslist" section, so we are glad to see it having a good dedicated Windows Phone 7 app. What we are seeing is WP7 devices gradually having all the basics covered, and with the upcoming OS update, the platform is shaping to be a viable contender in the smartphone space next year.
