    "Shop At Your Local Online Marketplace"


    5miles is an free and easy way to buy, sell, or barter items of all kinds. Once you have decided on what you want to buy or sell, you set up to meet the person in a local, public area to complete the transaction. 5miles has a number of features to keep the process safe, easy, and fun.


    The member rating is a huge plus. The user interface is designed well and load up times were quick. File size is small. There also appears to be a large community to draw from.


    On one occasion the app would not recognize a changed location. When hitting the back button, the app does not take you to the same prior location. Selling message notifications should clear automatically.
