Thursday's App of the Week: Yardsale

Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) -- Trying to sell those old baby clothes? Has Grandma's sweater finally un-knitted itself ? That used to mean it was time for a garage sale, not anymore.

Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) -- Trying to sell those old baby clothes? Has Grandma's sweater finally un-knitted itself ? That used to mean it was time for a garage sale, not anymore.

Does the thought of walking home to home in search of that perfect vinyl record exhaust you? Are you tired of actually having to get up off the couch and put everything outside for people to see? Well now there's a solution. Because with this latest App, you can do all your yardsaling right from your phone.

It's aptly called Yardsale. Available on the iPhone market, this latest smartphone app is absolutely free.

Its draw...post anything in under 30 seconds. For example, say I wanted to sell this computer monitor. I snap a couple pictures, enter a description, set a price, then post.

It will automatically upload to craigslist, then filter out any spam. You can also post your listing to Facebook or Twitter.

And if you're looking to buy, simply set how far away you want the Yardsale to search, and select what you're looking for.

Now the APP is fairly new, so there are few listings in our area right now, but as its popularity moves in from the coast, it might just rival craigslist as a digital marketplace.

The makers are issuing a caution though, the App is constantly using your phones GPS feature, so when running, it drains a lot of battery.
