  • Finally an Official App!

    By MrWufz
    Used CPlus for years. Glad they finally put out an official app. -1 star for what's always been an issue with Craigslist, regardless of platform. Abuse and lax enforcement. Most people on there are fine, but occasionally you run into unhinged people, and there is no help or recourse. I understand it's a small (and often free!) operation, but there are solutions. At the very least, they should be scanning for ads which are substantially the same and not allowing them. The most recent abuser I got didn't like that I took 45 min to respond to his text and got it in his mind that I was a scammer. So he copied my entire ad, including pictures, and added "this is a scam" to it, in multiple places. The pics at the very least, particularly in the same city, should be enough to flag based off some hash and prevent them from posting. I emailed the contact us for faked ads and never heard back. I didn't get any responses to my ad for a week until I could flag it enough times from different connections and devices to have it removed. Not cool. Imagine for people who have their contact info revenge posted.
  • One of my most used apps

    By Riahtana
    As someone who is a huge scavenger, I LLVE craigslist. I could scroll for hours looking at all the random free stuff, the plants and animals for sale in farm & garden, the things people are willing to trade in exchange for ______ (whatever they’re looking for), and the different houses and apartments for sale. I also believe that all but one of the jobs I’ve ever had, I found on Craigslist. There’s something for everybody. When I found out they had an app, I was so excited. I finally don’t have to type in their site (just kidding, it’s bookmarked) & re-select my area every time I want to scroll through the site. I open it multiple times a day, and it’s the first place I look for almost anything. Thanks for the great app.
  • Decent, Useful

    By ojleblanc
    I turned to this app bc my preferred app for navigating Craigslist does not function properly anymore. I was happy to find an official CL app. While it does not have all the features I’m used to, it is a decent app that is very useful. The one improvement that it really needs is an alternative way of handling seeing more ads by the same user. Once you click that option and see the ads by the same user, removing that filter doesn’t return you to where you were in the list of ads you were originally viewing. Rather, it boots you back to the top of the list. That discourages me from using the option to view other ads by the same user bc I don’t want to then have to scroll past ads I’ve already seen. To the developer: please find a way to preserve viewing location when this filter is removed.
  • Really good app🤘🏿🙏🏿

    By yoi biy
    I’ve had this app for a while and have been using Craig’s list for a while before that when I didn’t have the app and I actually bought my first car but there is one thing though if you don’t know how to use the app there is a lot of spam of car rims which is very annoying and this is just me but I’d personally like you to be able to search farther than 250 miles maybe like the whole USA because I like to look at cars from all around but in conclusion really good app I’d recommend to anyone my friend also bought his first car there and it is also really easy to use.
  • FB Marketplace’s Grandfather lives!

    By 12345678910nametaken
    In the light of the omni-powerful and consumptive nature of Facebook, it is nice to know that Craigslist is still a viable means of second hand commerce. I have had much success recently with the Craigslist app in market research, commerce, and business. Though Craigslist still censors the sales of certain legal items, they do not seem to exhibit the same political censorship propagated by the tech giants. I am grateful that there is an outlet that wagers less political agendas and focuses more on fair business practices (although there is still something missing from their market...) Congratulations to Craigslist for standing as long as they have and may they remain in profitable business into the foreseeable future. Thank you for your partial participation in 21st century commerce.
  • Thought I would never switch from the beloved web

    By Fastenerpuller
    Over the last ten years, CL has done a great job of keeping their webpage simple and functional during a UX arms race, even as they ad functionality. So I thought that I would never switch to the app. Now I find myself using it more and more. There are a few features that really sing in a touchscreen environment. For example, if you’re looking for an apartment, dragging your search area on the map is a wonderful way to look exactly where you want. On the other hand, you can’t see a thumbnail of your future apartment from the map view, so there is still a lot of room for improvement. If you use Craigslist, get the app. It’s as simple as that.
  • Mic Stands

    By Lvbymusic
    Was successful in giving them away. I can’t believe how fast they went. Though this wasn’t an issue Per se, but he responded to picking them up after I gave him the address, but communication stopped after I told him what time? I asked him three times.. then half an hour later he responded. It was getting late, I wanted to make sure he was coming, otherwise I’d have to bring all 8 stands back in from the cold. I left them at driveway and he came. Kudos to Craigslist for keeping everyone safe with all of our transactions.
  • Great app, except for setting range and maps...

    By JimS73
    I like the app a whole lot, but the range selection for distance from location is a bit counter intuitive and uses unusual numbers... instead of hitting (+) to increase range, (+) increases zoom on the map. Instead of going in say 10 or 15 mile increments, the increments are not so logically laid out. They probably make sense in some mathematical way, but I haven’t looked for the relationship yet. Other than that, it is easy to use, delivers pertinent results and a well laid out format. Another issue is that it doesn’t interface with Apple Maps very well unless a specific address is already provided.

    By Scott in Boston
    You’ll have all your saved searches deleted. At first blush, searching & browsing is simple and intuitive…a pleasure to use…but I haven’t dine much else, except contact some sellers. What I miss, and what prompted me to refresh my ancient CL account, is using the anonymous CL mail system as a shopper…used to be able to do that on the web, when logged in. App just opens your mail app, but doesn’t even select your CL account email…gotta do that manually. ALSO…what caused all this trouble just now was the UNINTUITIVE app config menus—trying to figure out how to use the anonymizing system—backing out of options that don’t behave as expected—and w/out warning, got logged out!!! BUGGY!!!
  • Easy to buy and sell

    By FearlessFarless
    Only complaint is the people trying to scam, spam and defraud you. Watch out for them. Great app, easy to set up, only issue I have seen so far is it’s tricky up loading images, I don’t have the issue memorized well enough to describe in detail but if you chose the wrong option to up load pics the app won’t see them. Also it’s easy to shuffle photos around once you have up loaded them, you can chose which one you want as your lead photo, touch and drag to move around.
