Hi,
 
 I am looking for Craigslist Software for Windows OS Computer.
 Can you recommend one or two?
 I like CSmart Craigslist App on my iPhone, but it is hard to find those that can run on PCs.

Thanks.

I have used eBay for this. I purchased a Vista Business license for a virtual machine, verified with the seller the key would be good (or I could return it) and that worked very well. $50 at the time some years back.

I think they are asking for an app to install on their Windows computer.  I don't believe Craigslist make an app (or software) to install on your Windows computer.  The only apps I know exist are for an Android phone or iPhone, as initially described.

Just use your favorite browser.  That's how it's meant to be used on a PC.

You can use web browser to perform a search Craigslist, but it does not search an item across multiple states like Smartphone version do.

There is no "App" for the PC.  I guess you could get an emulator for your PC and run one of the phone apps that way.

I looked at their feedback forum and searched 'search all states' and got
https://forums.craigslist.org/?act=searchFrameMaker&SQ=search+all+states&forumID=8

I do not see anything helpful on their feedback area except to see a few users are asking to search by the whole state.  I presume they're not using a mobile device.

What you are asking for does not appear to exist.  You can write to them to ask for this feature.  Otherwise, you will need to use your iPhone to perform a search across multiple states.

1) Google Advanced Search, simply put craigslist.org in the site/domain search box and any other criteria you want to search on. https://www.google.com/advanced_search

2) You can use any RSS reader and use the same format for the RSS link as what Craigslist shows on their site as a sample, https://www.craigslist.org/about/rss --but Craigslist says using their RSS links is for personal use only

3) From the Windows store, there is CPlus for Craigslist.
