Zaarly Android App, Buy and Sell Anything

Posted on Jul 22, 2011 in Lifestyle, Top Rated Apps | comment

The Zaarly Android App helps you buy and sell anything with people nearby.

  • Version: 1.0.1
  • Size: 7.03MB (apps2SD enabled)

Zaarly is kind of like Craigslist in reverse. Rather than posting items or services you’d like to sell, you post the ones you need. It works like this: create a post for something that you want, when you want it, and how much you are willing to pay for it (e.g. Nexus One, patio furniture, or concert tickets). Then, other users browsing your post can click the “I’ve Got That” button to tell you they’re interested in selling you that item.
