The pictures load quick, and once my posts are complete they are easy to access and manage in my account. At first glance shopping categories look easy, but once looking around its gets hard to navigate (scrolling endlessly through sale items), and the filter system doesn’t really work most of time (not pulling newest posts, not getting location of items correct, and not bringing up relevant items set in filter). I elected to skip map feature on my posts but there’s a map on my posts anyway. I also selected to be contacted via text only, but my posts give to option for users to call me, which I don’t like at all. The page for entering new post info keeps scrolling on my screen while I’m trying to type in a field (which is cumbersome & annoying), and my posts show they were posted more than 6 hours prior to when I actually posted (when I see other people’s posts showing as more recent within an hour). Can’t find my brand new posts under “newest”, and they don’t show up for assigned location either. I have to do specific keyword search to find them, and even then it’s a 50/50 chance of my posts ever showing up. Most likely my new posts won’t get that much exposure with this app, not sure if I’ll continue using it. I’m giving this app 3 stars because if the developers take the time to smooth out these problems, it has much better potential. However, if app continues functioning this way, I will most likely decrease my rating then delete the app.
I use Craigslist all the time and I have tried several different apps. THIS IS THE ONE! With this app, I love how you can set your search areas and forget it. You can choose as many search areas as you want, and just forget it... no need to enter it again & again. I set mine to search all my neighboring cities. I love how you can set it to search for "Most Recent Ads" and "For Sale by Owner" and it just stays that way, unlike the desktop version. It automatically saves your last several searches so you can quickly search again & again for the same items. You are also able to tag the ads that interest you as "Saved" so you can quickly find the various ads you were interested in. Everything loads quickly, never an issue! No annoying ads & nothing to harass you. I 100% LOVE THIS APP!
Used to be great
Still is great on my iPad, but for the last year+ hasn’t worked for my iPhone. I’ve contacted the company several times but haven’t gotten any assistance. I just keep getting the error that the application cannot contact the server. Over the course of the last year or so I have managed to successfully use the application on my iPhone perhaps five times. Every other time I get that error. I have found very little information on this error online. And have received no comment from the company itself. What little I have found refers to uploading posts, which is unrelated, or else refers to looking at results from multiple (meaning to many) servers. After reading this one, I slowly deleted all of the locations I was searching and even when using just one regardless of where in the world I was looking, I could not get the program to work for me. EDIT file making this post, I opened the application and successfully did a search. That makes half a dozen successes over the last year, perhaps I have seen the last of the failure, but I expect not.
I have been using CL since the beginning and have really enjoyed searching for cars/trucks and toys on the site (I have only used the for sale part). I really liked that it was free to post my items for sale and seemed to be effective in selling the items despite a few fraudulent emails and ads. Those were easy enough to sift through if you knew what to look for. Now that the ads are costing money I am very dissatisfied and disappointed. They have lost a long standing, honest fan of CL. I won’t post any more ads due to them asking for all the credit card information and money for the ad. It is kind of funny because if you go to their ‘about’ section, it says that they won’t ask for any personal information. I can understand perhaps why they would charge money for the ads and just maybe it will weed out some of the fraudulent people but they will lose a lot of good followers as well. I simply don’t buy things online in order to decrease my chances of fraud. This was very disappointing and will lose many quality followers.
Just deleted this app
I actually really liked this app, but it slowed my iPad down and made it glitchy, and I could only use it 2-3 times before Craigslist would block my IP address, which means I couldn’t use Craigslist at all unless I turned off the WiFi on my iPhone and just used cellular data. I sell a lot of stuff so this was very frustrating for me because it would take Craigslist sometimes over a day to unblock me. As quickly as things move in the Craigslist world, this could mean losing sales because I’m unable to update/renew my ads. I only saw a few other people complaining of this issue and it seems as though we were all searching/posting in multiple areas/states. I would guess that this probably looks to Craigslist like scammer activity and may not even be something the app can control, but nonetheless it still messed up my iPad too much and so I regrettably had to delete it. Now my iPad is back to its normal, lightning fast self and I haven’t been blocked from Craigslist since. I guess I will stick to Safari Craigslist or try to find another app that won’t have/cause so many issues.
Using saved searches is flawed . Create a search for a Ford Mustang and save it. For this example you decide not to use your custom search , instead manually typing in the search field at the top of the screen. Just for fun type in "Honda civic" it will now search for Honda civics. Now you have seen some civics but want to use the Ford Mustang search. Click "back" and then click on your Ford Mustang saved search . It is now searching for "Honda civic" even though the saved search is "Mustang ". Try again . Nope , it's still stuck on "Honda civic" though the saved search clearly shows "Mustang". Now erase or backspace over the sticking "Honda civic " search window. click the "back button" to go to the Mustang search . Click on the Mustang saved search and now it's stuck searching everything on Craigslist! (Because you backspaced on the search window and it's blank so it searched ALL) even if you click on Mustang saved search it still won't obey !
Not what it was, but still the best
It’s still better than navigating CL on its own, but it’s not as clean and easy as it used to be. Ive had this app almost since it started, and in the old iOSes it was a lot more functional. I deleted it for a time as they didn’t update it for several years, now they’ve made a comeback. Pros: being able to save posts as favorites, categorizing said favorites, checking multiple cities at once, posting ads and editing through the app. Cons: still lots of scrolling past irrelevant junk, posts don’t always post how or when you want them to (I haven’t tried in a few months, they may have fixed it), posts don’t always save as a favorite, and you don’t always see every post in a given city via the app vs just searching on CL itself. Once again, it’s better than it was for a while, but I still check back and forth on occasion.
Why are these apps so bad
It’s with great sorrow and happiness that I Write this review. The happiness is that I finally got a new iPhone, the sad part is that my original “craigslist pro” app is no longer downloadable. It’s been with me for years and it will be sorely missed. It was simple and easy to use. The pictures could be brought up along with the descriptions. If l double clicked it would hide them. It had a simple way to sort through cities across the country. And it actually worked fantastic. Its the main reason I would get my phone repaired instead of replacing it. I had friends that faced this unbearable and unnecessary tragedy before me. And I knew deep down that this day would eventually come for me too. Now I have to decide on what overly complicated jazzed up application to choose from. I’ve tried this application before and found it Next to Useless. (Compared to the Original). Just because someone can make something more complex doesn’t mean that they should. The old Adage “keep it simple stupid” doesn’t mean that the developers are stupid. IT’S JUST GREAT ADVICE.
There seems to be a bug with the app. Pics aren't coming up every time unless I hit the original post button towards the bottom of the page. Neither are the contact phone numbers I'm sure this is a glitch from the previous update or two. Your assistance would be greatly appreciated. This app has become my favorite Craigslist app but these areas really need some attention. Thanks. Update *******. Most of the glitches mentioned above have been addressed. I'd still like to see a search history instead of having to save every search I might want to search again later. You guys are doing a great job. Thank you!! Update. After the last update it looks like they added search history to the app. Great job. By far the best Craigslist app I've used. Thank you for the improvements
Craigslist till I die
Easier to use than the website on safari with bigger displays, a map of the location with gps that gives you the estimated time it'll take to get there by car, easier to navigate and you can contact seller with only the press of a few buttons. Posting friendly as well, I check Craigslist up to two hours a day looking primarily at the furniture and the free section and I love the ease of this app. Other great sections are jobs& gigs, beauty-services, pets-community and garage sales. Personals section isn't my jam but my sister met her husband off of their and my cousin met her ex fiancé off of their as well, it could really go either way. Being a broke millennial I am disappointed it's taken me years to download the app but I am glad I did, Craigslist till I die
Needs improvement, but for me it was the best out of the available choices.
I use this app mainly because it doesn’t reset my search if I switch to a different app while using it, ie if I want to flip to chrome for a second it will keep my position in the search result page. That was the most annoying thing about the other CL app I like to use (it’s a green one in the App Store and it’s also paid). An irritating quirk this app has is if you’re not very careful and deliberate about scrolling down, it will instead interpret a downstroke as a side swipe and will return you to the start page. Hugely annoying to have to make the search all over again and scroll forever to find my spot. Maybe implement a page system? Other minor gripes but it’s less annoying to use this app than the others, so four out of five for now.
I’ve had this app for some time now. It works well. I only downloaded this one when my previous app for Craigslist was no longer offered or supported. There are a few things I don’t like about app. Here they are: • It does not give you the option of saving your filters. You always have to go on a put them back in. I only ever want to see posts with pictures. Once you leave the app you must go back in and re-check your filters. The app I had previously saved that information. • The Show More tab. I have several cites saved in my app. While scrolling through a cities listings the Show More for the current city I am looking in blends in and I miss it. Would be great if that was bolder so that when you’re just scrolling through you don’t miss it. • When you do a Search it would be amazing to have the option to uncheck ALL the categories then you could click the couple categories you’d like to search for that item in. Right now you have to scroll through and uncheck every single one. Slightly annoying only because there are so many to uncheck. It’s a good app over all. Posting listings from it is easy and has never been glitchy. It’s never had any crashing issues for me. I do recommend getting it if you use Craigslist.
Great service. Too bad this, like every place else, political correctness and unfettered criticism effects every thing we do. Why do we care about what the people in another planet, another continent, another country or another state really care. It’s like we’re China and we’re isolated from the real world. We don’t remove scammers who rob and steal people blind, but say one thing that offends someone who is offended by toilet paper ads, and you’re BLOCKED. People post illegal stuff (Florida has way different laws about construction and trades, to protect real property values and insurance) all the time and Craigslist is not smart enough to block any of them. Either block everyone, or no one. I’m offended by anyone who is offended. Hell, if your offended, go elsewhere. Post what you like.
Bait AND Switch...Desperate Developers...Sad
I’ve owned this app for years. I’m quite sure I actually bought a version after trying a free version with ads. I used to use it quite often, but I won’t anymore. If fact I can’t. The developers of this (once) cool Craigslist app have somehow blocked me from creating more than two notifications. The problem is...I have about 25 notifications saved already but I get a pop up window when opening the app now, that says I have to pay for the premium edition if I want to use the app with more than 2 notifications set. Hey diva nimrod devs, how about I just stop using your app and delete if from my iPhone and write a truthful review about my experience. Unfortunate that your greed exceeds you and you fail to understand the app netiquette of grandfathering in your paying customers with at least the functionality they already had, if not giving them more when you update feature of the app. Live and learn. Live and learn the hard way in this case.
Awesome Craigslist search app!
I love Craigslist, because as far as I know they don’t spy on you and track your every move and listen in on your conversations and sell you out like Facebook and others. I love this app because I can search multiple locations and use combinations of filters to search more specifically for what I want. I also love that I can contact CL ad listers directly through the app and it actually keeps track of who I’ve contacted. That’s a really useful feature! I also love the map view where I can see where items are located. I haven’t had time to try some of the other features but I’m sure there’re plenty more handy ones. To the developers of this app, thanks for making such a great CL app and keep it up. 👍🏼
