Seeing as there really is no "usable" craigslist app on the Mac App Store, I took the liberty to create one. I just uploaded it to the App Store today and it's pending review.

Features
• multi keyword filtering
• multi city search
• new listing notifications
• multi search automation
• cool stuff

The purpose of this app isn't to show you every single listing on craigslist but to notify you of new ones, so you get dibs.

Congrats on the app. I agree that OS X needs more native craigslist tools.

I just downloaded and played with it. It is bring up searches correctly, but when I click on the listing to go to the CL site, there seems to be an error. Its generating the wrong url structures:

http://lancaster.craigslist.orghttp//baltimore.craigslist.org/ele/3895517098.html

http://reading.craigslist.orghttp//philadelphia.craigslist.org/sys/3857584207.html

http://york.craigslist.orghttp//baltimore.craigslist.org/sys/3894041453.html

Keep at it, this will be a popular app, congratulations!

I didn't know this until now but apparently, when search results are few, craigslist will add results from nearby cities. This will be fixed in version 1.1
