SAN DIEGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Antengo, a mobile marketplace for posting and discovering real-time local classified listings, is now available as an app for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch on the App Store. Antengo is quickly gaining momentum as a reinvention of classified listings for mobile, making it easy for local communities and its members to post, browse and answer listings as well as connect with local buyers and sellers immediately. The new app allows users to browse classifieds via maps, visuals or written posts in 140 characters using the robust filter and search functionality.
“Today’s consumer is constantly on the go, and deserves classifieds that match their lifestyle. That’s what we have set out to achieve with Antengo,” said Marcus Wandell, Antengo’s co-founder and chief executive officer. “Our goal with this app is to connect people who have specific and immediate needs – whether it's last-minute concert tickets, a place to live or a carpool buddy. As we continue to grow, the marketplace becomes even more exciting with valuable offers and opportunities.”

- Post items or services for sale or extend community offers
