Another Way To Barter
Your Products & Services
Just as Twitter evolved blogging into micro-blogging, Anttenna is
today launching a free smartphone application that reinvents
classified advertising as “microlistings.” Launching as an iPhone
application, Anttenna delivers a real-time, location-aware and
mobile consumer-to-consumer and business-to-consumer microlistings
marketplace for the buying, selling, and bartering of goods and
has announced the application is now available in most major
metropolitan areas across the United States and Canada, building on
the success of pilots in San Diego, Seattle, and Austin.
“Anttenna is like a swap meet in your pocket,” said Marcus Wandell,
Anttenna’s co-founder and chief executive officer. “This year, more
people will access the Internet on their phones than they will on
computers, and smartphones are changing the very fabric of the
Internet with portability, geo-positioning, and mobile applications.
“With the exception of posting ads online and making them
searchable, classified ads haven’t really evolved all that much
since they were introduced 300 years ago. Certainly not to the point
of harnessing this technology revolution that will see billions of
smartphones in use around the world in just a couple of years.
“Anttenna fully leverages the smartphone platforms and new
communications standards to give people a whole new way to use
classified advertising. The application delivers a constant stream
of hyper-local, real-time listings, always relevant given the moment
and location in which they are seen.”
