We haven’t had an update for a while, but that does not mean the Postify team has not been working hard. Our programming beasts (Adam and Tanner) and master designer (Cam) have been working hard on the new site, blowing away deadlines. While it’s not available to the public yet, we already have a functioning site. If you are reading this blog, you just may get a sneak peak. :)
Let me tell you about some of the features on this site that will make your life as a college student much easier, while also allowing you to save and make a lot of money. Pretty soon you’ll be wondering how you made it without Postify. (You can thank us later.)
Beautiful Design - I think we as a culture have just accepted classifieds sites as websites that look like they were made in 1993, but function well. We easily criticize other functional websites that aren’t aesthetically pleasing, but we turn a blind eye when it comes to classifieds. The team at Postify wants to change that, and our new site that officially launches August 1st offers a clean, modern look, while maintaining the intuitiveness and functionality that is required for a great user experience. We here at Postify like to say that we are “putting the class back into classifieds.”
Social - The new site integrates major social networks and allows you to share your ads on Facebook or Twitter once they’re posted. I know that I’d rather buy, trade or rent things from friends as opposed to strangers, so social sharing will help you do just that.
Textbook Feature - Everyone knows that college textbooks are one of the most purchased items in college. Why not sell, rent or exchange your old textbooks with other students? The new site will allow you to just type in the ISBN number for your textbooks that you’d like to sell, and all of the important information automatically populates. The picture of the book even pops up, making your life much easier. You will also be able to add comments to describe the book’s condition.
Lists - Chances are you have lists of books, movies or furniture you would like to buy. Maybe you see something on Postify that you like, but you aren’t sure if you should buy it. Our list feature allows you to create lists for these items so you can keep tabs on them.
Free! - Did I mention that this will all be free? You will get to do all of this and more for free. I wish I was in college again, just so that I could use this!
That’s a brief summary of just a few of the features for the upcoming launch. Trust us, there is a whole lot more, but we can’t share all of our secrets with you quite yet. ;)
Postify will be launching at Wright State University on August 1st.
