      This is what their site says: Shpock is available as a free classifieds app for iOS devices (iPhone, iPad, iPod) in the Apple App Store as well as for Android devices (smartphones, tablets) in the Google Play Store. As long as you have a device with one of the two operating systems, you can easily buy and sell the most beautiful second-hand goods. The mobile boot sale is always open, no matter if you'reon the move or at home and at any time of the day.
