Vflyer, the San Francisco-based classifieds company, today adds a new mobile service to distribute and manage classified ads on mobile devices.
It looks particularly useful for real estate agents, who are always on the go. The offering gives them a way of quickly sending classifieds listings information to their prospective buyer clients via email or SMS. Those clients can then access the information via the Web, or SMS or email on their phone. See the helpful tour here. A screenshot is below.

The move adds mobile to Vflyer’s distribution channels, which include online marketplaces (e.g. Edegio, Craigslist), widgets for Web page, and email.
The mobile flyers contain information such as photos, pricing, driving directions and contact information.
While direct competitors such as postlets and SubmitYourListings.com do not offer mobile yet, classified sites such as Oodle and Craigslist do offer mobile-friendly ad viewing. However, they don’t offer the sort of track and manage features that Vflyer offers. Vflyer lets you track stats on your mobile distribution campaigns, such as page views and visits.
