2- USA Today
USA Today’s classified-ads app, of course, associated with the newspaper. Millions of users use the app every month, which means that—if you post something for sale—you can easily reach a huge audience. There are categories for careers, vehicles, real estate, services offered, travel deals, and education services. There is even a section for auctions so that you can find prices you find reasonable for those goods you’d like to buy.
eBay is a classic example of a classified app platform when it comes to buying used items online, whether as an auction or as the “buy it now” option. Sales are delivered via the postal service, but you can also pick up larger items that would be more expensive to ship. It’s also a better place to sell (and look for) niche items that might not sell as well on the classified-ads app, which have a more general audience.
4- Facebook Marketplace
You might not have realized it yet, but the Facebook app provides you with a good place to buy and sell stuff. More specifically, its local Buy and Sell groups allow you to exchange items with people located in your area. Even smaller cities can have up to hundreds of posts every day—there are millions of users on Facebook, after all—and listing items are free. The site also allows you to use specific keywords when you’re searching for items so that you can find the specific thing you’re looking for.
Oodle is one of the most known classified apps. It’s is used by roughly 15 million people in the UK, Ireland, Canada, the US, New Zealand, Australia, and India.

These network connections allow users on the Oodle platform to find only the best deals possible, in particular for vehicles and for antiques and other collectibles. The app will also allow you to advertise your listings on Facebook. It’s free to list or sell items, although—depending on the categories you’ve chosen to post in—there are limits to how many postings any given user can put up at one time.

You can also advertise your own items on Trovit, either directly on the platform or by having it hosted from a coordinating website. Ads posted on Craigslist will generally show up automatically on Trovit.

Categories of items, services, and others on the app include personals, events, jobs, classes and courses, items for sale, and real estate. The locanto app is especially ideal if you’re looking for services that can be found locally—including babysitters, jobs that are close to your home, and used cars—although ads from national retailers are on the site as well. Locanto ads are special because they resemble those that are posted in newspapers all over the country every day.
