Oh So Techy: 5miles Hits Dallas


On the set of Good Morning Texas with Shannon Powell Hart to talk about 5miles App

I visited the set of Good Morning Texas on Tuesday to share a new discovery with their audience. In case you missed the segment, I thought I'd share it here as well! 5miles allows users to buy and sell items and services with their smart phone. Users can snap a photo, enter a text or voice description, and sell to thousands of potential buyers within seconds. 5miles uses a phone's location to reach a multitude of buyers and sellers in an immediate area. Introduced in 2014, 5miles today has two million active users and facilitates $100 million in transactions within the local economy. The app, which is totally free for both buyers and sellers, has a visual design similar to Pinterest, allowing users to browse images of items sorted by what’s closest to them or search and filter for specific items or services. Safer to use than Craigslist, 5miles provides user ratings and Facebook and phone verification to help users feel confident that they are trading with real people, not scammers. The company’s “Awesome Experience” team checks every item to ensure it matches strict safety guidelines. 5miles customers now can use the app to find local providers of services such as housekeeping and lawn care. In addition, the app also helps users tap into available housing and jobs in their area. To learn more about 5miles, visit, or go to the App Store or Google Play to download the app for iPhone or Android devices.
