SellSimple helps to sell your junk via multiple venues

Summary:One person's trash is another person's treasure is the old trope. A new iOS app promises to simplify the selling process and allow you to sell in multiple venues at once.

After setting up an account, it's just of matter of snapping a few photos of your, ahem, "treasure," entering a description and choosing a shipping price and/or local pickup option.

Your item is immediately listed on the marketplace and you have the option to also list in on: eBay, Etsy, Craigslist, Facebook, Twitter and to share it via Text Message and/or Email.  I received a question about a test item I posted last night via push notification on my iPhone about a minute after posting it. I haven't yet tried cross-posting the same item to multiple services, but the app certainly has a lot of potential for simplifying what could be a dauntiing task.
