5Miles is an app that tries to be a replacement for Craigslist, but it doesn't really seem to add up based on the customer reviews. It does have a nice interface that allows you to upload pictures easily to sell something, buy something or even find a roommate! However, one part about the interface that is not cool is that you can't reorder the pictures without deleting them and reuploading them.

In addition, while Craigslist does flag and remove posts a lot, it seems that it is quite easy to get your post removed from 5Miles and even get yourself banned as a user based on customer reviews. Some people say that the listings on this site are a bit sketchy or sexy (depending on who you are you might think one or the other) with lots of used panties for sale!
