This one is fairly new to my app drawer. Zaarly is like Craigslist's location-aware, bizarro twin brother. It lets you post requests for goods or services (that you're willing to pay for) in hopes of finding a nearby user to oblige.
Now imagine, you’re at work late, stuck in a meeting, and you need to pick up your dry cleaning before the place closes at 6. With Zaarly, you can actually see if anyone in your area (strangers included) would be willing to make the pickup for you--for a price, of course. Just post your request on Zaarly, along with what you're willing to pay, and if anyone in your area is willing to do the deed, they'll hit you up. Or imagine you need a big truck to haul an old sofa to Goodwill tomorrow evening. Post your request on Zaarly and see if any locals bite. With Zaarly, you can pick up your phone and post a request for pretty much anything. And, of course, the app also works the other way around, allowing you to browse other people's needs and possibly make some extra cash. Your number is kept anonymous, so you don't have to worry about any future creepy callers.
