I LOVE KSL Classifieds! Use it literally everyday, without fail. But… this new update has made things awful! The tabs we use most often are now at the tippy top of the screen, yet our fingers sit near the bottom. Why wouldn’t you think to nest the row of navigation tabs at the bottom, and get rid of the terrible ads (usually R.C. Willy) that sit there instead? Or sit right above the ad? The idea of the home page being customisable is nice, but by moving the nav tabs to the top it’s created a less convenient setup, especially if you’re someone who likes to use a single hand with a large display phone. Also… Dark Mode! Where is Dark Mode??? KSLClassifieds is still rocking the crazy bright white background, where most all other apps have been able to come up with a dark mode option. I’m literally typing this review on KSLClassifieds Store in Dark Mode with white (super easy to read) text. This cannot be that difficult of an option to include, no? We LOVE the KSL Classifieds system, as it’s far better than Craigslist, LetGo, FB, etc., but it NEEDS a Dark Mode, and would be much more convenient with the nav tabs at the bottom instead of the very top of the screen!


App crashes a lot

Opening KSLClassifieds is a struggle when it finally decides to load everything. Switch the location filter to a sort filter because having to open a menu and then submenu to basically restart a search with the new sorting criteria (high to low, etc) that also resets all the time or doesn’t sort it when you submit the initial search and forces you to redo it. Also don’t see a point in having ads at the end of scrolling through a listing while also having an ad banner at the bottom. Getting rid of the ads at the bottom of a listing(still keep the banner at the bottom for ads as I assume that’s how funding comes in for KSLClassifieds ) would also help with the over processing issues. pc, laptop, phone, tablet, accessing KSLClassifieds /website causes everything to either get really hot for mobile devices or kick the fans on immediately on PCs, regardless of how new it is. I loved KSLClassifieds a few years ago but every year it seems to change not always for the better. So many sub menus to go through for almost everything.



I have been selling items on Craigslist, offer up and KSL for years and I have to say that the most frustrating thing about KSLClassifieds (KSL) is how they want you to specify exactly what category your items are in. I can see how this can be beneficial if you know exactly what you’re looking for, however, I don’t think they realize how many people miss out on finding items that don’t exactly fit their narrow categories. Just picture yourself trying to find an item that you’re not entirely sure where to find but you know could be in several of their categories and because their search options are so specific you have to waste a good amount of your time going back over and over again searching through each category! How ANNOYING!!! This poor UX/UI design also has probably lost its users tons of sales over the years because buyers are unable to find items as easily as other apps.



I absolutely loved KSLClassifieds . I could sign in and save my searches and favorites. But since the new update it is absolute crap!!!!!!!!!!! It signed me out and I couldn’t sign back in so I created a new account and still can’t sign, it says there’s a “error” when I click sign in. Then I try to use without being signed in, looking at vehicles and it just loads the same 10 vehicles every single page. This is very frustrating to me. Updates are supposed to make things better but this one absolutely ruined KSLClassifieds . 😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡 ***************Revision************** Customer service got in touch with me and got it figured out. Back to one of my favorite apps. 👍👍👍👍👍


Great app!

Awesome app! Much better than Craigslist, sellers still have to fish through spammers (don't ever accept codes or 3rd party pick up, or even cashiers check), but most of the listings Ive seen are all legit, not like the "too good to be true" ones that are sob stories and someone is going out of town for military and just to be safe, look at this eBay listing that is not really ebay, and they will hold the payment for a couple days so you can try the item out before funds are released to the fake seller, and the shipping has already been covered, and it's at a secure state facility on a military base. Good job KSL.


Reloads everything every. single. time.

KSLClassifieds is generally okay, but I can’t get over the fact that every single time I leave KSLClassifieds -for any amount of time- it goes back to the main menu screen when I come back. I lose all progress on my searches; even if I’m lucky enough to be on a saved search, I still have to find the search again in my list and scroll back down to where I was at. Considering that I often want to hop over to google to check average pricing and quality on things I’m looking to buy, this is super frustrating. I also have just found it to be pretty buggy in general: lots of frozen screens, pictures stuck halfway to the next photo, stuff like that. I still use KSLClassifieds , because KSL is a big player in the online market in my area, but I honestly don’t enjoy using it at all.


Always has a bug

KSLClassifieds is generally good and useful. I use it pretty much every day. The problem is that there are so many bugs; and the bugs they do fix usually create others. You never know what’s not going to work next. I also use KSLClassifieds on my iPad quite a bit that is almost always connected to a keyboard and its very annoying that KSLClassifieds doesn’t work in landscape mode. That being said, I still prefer using KSLClassifieds over using safari or another browser. Just wish they would fix a few things. Also miss being able to access favorites and saved searches without having to go through the navigation bar.


Contact info

It would be good for people to know: you can’t update or change your contact info in the listing itself. There is an “edit” link, but if you make changes in there it doesn’t actually change your contact info, in the listing. In fact, I went into my profile and corrected it there, and it didn’t flow through to my listing. The system said it would take 5 minutes, but after 30 minutes it still wasn’t showing up correctly in my listing. So, I ended up deleting my listing and started a new one. This really wasn’t a big deal, but I had a very short window of time to sell the item, so it became a bit of a problem.


Isn’t KSL great

I feel lucky to live in an area near the customer base of KSL classifieds. It is so much easier to use than any other classified ad platform I have ever tried, and it has such great user base that you can feel confident that if it is for sale somewhere on any platform, it is very likely to be on sale in KSL too. The security features and the way KSLClassifieds works all help it’s success. Thanks. One bit of feedback would be I wish we could use a forward button. I get annoyed when I accidentally back out of a search and cannot get back to it easily.


Crashes and over heats my iPhone

After being on the ap for few minutes, my phone will heat up and all the functions freeze until I can get KSL to close. I can browse for maybe 10 min before I have to preemptively close everything. Otherwise, love the ap, easy to use, great finds. also I wish you didn’t have a free pet section, maybe instead team up with local shelters and have an adoption page. If someone isn’t a responsible pet owner and they are going to dump an animal, encourage them to give to a rescue that will care for the animals well-being and find them a new home. Animals aren’t lamps, they feel abandonment just as a child would. Do better KSL, work within the community, support non kill shelters and animal adoption.


Old app was better

I appreciate the updates to KSLClassifieds but this new interface is way more buggy than KSLClassifieds from last year or so. I use KSLClassifieds and website daily for work and personal use, but I’m forever frustrated with the map distance filter. I understand the concept of a radius distance filter, but it resets every time you fill a new search query. I would greatly appreciate the option to lock the distance filter separately from other filters. Repeated searches for different items in the same area get fairly taxing when you have to reset the distance filter every time. Otherwise a fairly fluid app, but well on its way to improvement.


Recently very buggy

KSLClassifieds has become rife with bugs. Opening saved searches and favorites sags several seconds. When opening saved listings, the information for # of saves and the pictures do not always load. Love that KSLClassifieds and the listings are free, but it really could be more modern and efficient. The ability to re-order saved searches and listings would be nice. The ability to organize in to folders, etc.


Glitchy lists

If you live in Utah you really don’t have many options for buying and selling, so I’m at least glad the KSL classifieds app works as well as it does. That said, the search results and favorites lists are annoyingly glitchy. They seem to get in a loop sometimes and list the same five things multiple times before you get to new items. And it’s not because of promoted items, it happens in my favorites, too. It’s annoying enough that I would look for a better option if there was one but all other classifieds in Utah just aren’t as popular.


Timeouts and crashes

For the last few weeks KSLClassifieds doesn’t seem to work. Most of my searches give me a timeout error... I contacted support and they said there was a bug that was fixed and to delete and re download. Did that and it worked for about a day and now I find myself deleting KSLClassifieds and re download frequently due to poor performance. Love KSLClassifieds it has saved and made me thousands of dollars so I can’t rate it bad, but just want them to fix it so it is consistent again.


Location Filter is horrendous

I used to search and buy stuff on KSL all the time. I absolutely hate the Location Filter! I wish it was possible to just shut it off. I am fine looking at item from all over the state. I live in Wyoming so I will be driving to pickup whatever I find anyway. Just give us an option to shut it off and leave it off. For years I have loved these classifieds but now it is such a pain to use I have been using FB marketplace. Please fix it.


KSL, the best classified

I’ve been using KSL Classifieds for many years. As I look around the house, I can see so many items, that I have purchased second hand, from KSL. All in all, an awesome service we have here in this state. Heck, I look at my driveway, and I found both my vehicles on KSL. When I need something this is where I go. And, it’s great to sell off some excess items as well! Thank you- Evan


Latest version Oct 2028 has big problems

The latest update in the last month or so has been horrible compared to the previous. Inconsistent searches, won’t search for right settings unless you force it to search twice. Sometimes even if I put in a wide open search I’ll get maybe one car, then search again and get 10 and it’ll mix it up and include vehicles I didn’t ask for. I’ve used KSLClassifieds for years, but I can’t trust it right now like I used to so I’m disappointed. I would wait for the next rev and see if they get these bugs fixed.


If I could give a zero

Guys what the heck have you done to KSL classifieds?? I literally search for something on KSLClassifieds every day and I have felt the new and improved updates have been great UNTIL this one. KSLClassifieds IS BROKEN! Seriously whoever came up with this idea of the classified app layout should look for new work or something. This won’t do and I seriously hope I am not the only one who thinks this!! Wow developers you honestly thought this was an update and new look? It’s not functional. I could be into any category in 2-4 clicks and knew what I was looking for. I will change my review when KSLClassifieds is fixed, until then it deserves 0 stars.


Every “update” a downgrade

When I first got KSLClassifieds , it was great! So easy to use, fast, and I could easily see people’s phone numbers to pass along the info to share with someone when I knew they were looking for something. Now though, KSLClassifieds takes over a full minute to even register that I pushed a button when it first opens. No other app takes that long. It’s ridiculous. Every time you return to the first page, it takes another full minute (or more) to load to the next thing you want to see. I’ve waited 3 minutes and I don’t think the car search is working today. It simply won’t open. Won’t even register that I hit the button.


👎 automated distance

I have loved KSLClassifieds until the last couple of weeks. I HATE the new area search. Every time I go into KSLClassifieds I have to change the automated distance feature that you just added. It is such a pain! At least come up with a way to set the areas we want until we decide to change them. It’s very inconvenient when I’m selling things as well. I think most people don’t even realize that you limit their search to very small locations. Please change it back! Or at least make it so we can set the map permanently.


This is an upgrade?

I don’t get it. You rewrote KSLClassifieds and you still didn’t make it universal so it would utilize the screen on an iPad. Thank you I guess for updating the old app to 2010 standards. Not only that, but how is the search field not able to return any result? Why do I have to go to a specific screen to search for a category and a completely different screen to search for a listing? This is unnecessarily convoluted. Lastly, the same keyword search will return different results each time. I hope you guys didn’t blow a 5 year app budget on this version. Yikes.


Wishing some things were changed

I loved using KSLClassifieds because it very helpful. The only I would really really wish the developers change is the range selector. Wouldn’t it be easier to be able to input how far you want the range to be? Instead of having a map? I also feel like it glitches out and doesn’t show you all the cars out there, because I’ve noticed that using the same range and same exact spot it’s shows different cars


What happened to this app??!!

KSLClassifieds used to work perfectly and now its practically useless. You have to sign in every time you open it and if you’re in the middle of typing up an ad to post and need to open another screen to look at something real quick you can’t go right back to what you were doing, it automatically closes and you have to start from scratch...logging in without it being saved. When you try and post your ad it gives some ridiculous error message and won’t post. Frustrating! Please fix it!


Need some clarification

So I put a listing for 30 bucks and it says for 1 dollar a day I can move it to the top of the list. I then later post something for 5 bucks and at the bottom of that email I can pay 7 bucks a day to move it to the top of the list. So you want me to pay 2 bucks more than what I am asking for to put it at the top of the list? Like are you insane, using half of your grey matter. Like who do you think would go for this. For this I will never never spend any money on anything you guys do. Way to be greedy.



Lack of HQ photos makes it difficult to look at details (serial numbers, scratches, etc). Would LOVE to see the category the product was listed under also. Say I want to look for a phone...instead of zeroing in on a certain category and having to look through multiple ones, just show what category it was listed under. Have been wanting that for years. I use KSLClassifieds daily.


Garbage for sellers

KSLClassifieds is garbage and has been for years. I have had multiple iPhones and KSLClassifieds as the same problem as its always had. You try to upload images and they just show up blank BUT sometimes they do work. Doesn’t matter what settings you change your pictures to. It’s just random when it works, but it seems like once the picture won’t load the ad is screwed and will never load. I have to take completely different pictures to make it work. OfferUp and Let Go don’t have this problem. I can take the same pictures and use my laptop and they always load. Doesn’t matter if they load through WiFi or LTE. Get it together KSL if you want to even stay competitive in a market that was once just owned by you. I’m starting to think it’s not worth the hassle to post stuff here.


Love this app

Love KSLClassifieds! I use it all the time. The only thing I’d love to see a something that tells you if an ad has been modified or renewed or lowered the price. I favorite things as a way to watch them as I imagine most people do. Sometimes they lower the price and it’s gone and I would have snatched it at the lower price also. It’d be nice to see that option


Latest update scrolling issue

I use KSLClassifieds all the time. Thanks for providing this service for free. The latest version (2.5.7) has some bugs regarding scrolling. I’m guessing they aren’t correctly caching/recycling the table cells, as when I scroll through listings, it’s suuuuper choppy on my iPhone 11 Pro. It seems to get worse the more is use KSLClassifieds .


Needs iPad optimization, show description by default

The iPad version of KSLClassifieds is like holding the iPhone version really close to your face. So much wasted space and screen resolution. Having to click "description" on every ad to read the description is a huge insult to the users of KSL classifieds. It's clearly just another opportunity to sell more 3rd party as space. The devs claim it's because they don't want you to be overwhelmed with long descriptions. KSL breaking news: if the description is long, we want to see it anyway!


Doesn’t Show Favorites

KSLClassifieds used to be great, but something has changed. I can search and save items on my iOS devices, but those saved items can not be seen on those iOS devices. I can see them on the web, but not in KSLClassifieds . Therefore KSLClassifieds has become very frustrating. I have reported this problem multiple times to KSL, which acknowledges receipt of the report. Then, days later I get a message saying my case will be closed because KSL hasn’t heard anything more from me. What more am I supposed to communicate??? I have even called and verbally discussed the problem with KSL, and am told that KSLClassifieds developer is on vacation. I’m surprised there is only one developer, and it appears the vacation has lasted about six months. Very disappointed with what used to be a very helpful app.


Last update

How do uninstall the most recent update? I can’t search for specific items anymore. When I do it moves my location and no matter when I search for it tells me none available. Also sometimes when scrolling through it’s just the same page over and over again. The last version wasn’t perfect but definitely worked better than this one.
