Pros: MapLiv combines Craigslist's new map view, the powerful search engine of Lovely, and the ability to look for rooms, shares, sublets, and temporary housing all in one. The site pulls results from apartment listings all over the web, but a majority of them come right from Craigslist. Our favorite feature is the "Nearby" search functionality, which shows public transit stops and school icons on the map.
Cons: This site can be a little overwhelming. Rather than displaying the number of listings in the area when panned out, like Lovely or Trulia, MapLiv shows a dot for every result. Users need to zoom in quite a bit to click on individual listings as the dots just end up on top of each other if you're panned out too far.
