  • 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.
  • 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.
  • A Craigslist surprise

    By Abargs
    You know what you’re getting with Craigslist’s interface on the web and it is what it is - plain and straightforward. No fuss, no ads, no fancy searching, etc. It’s the beauty of Craigslist really. So I downloaded the app, kind of expecting it to be bad and it’s not! Maybe it was my expectation but the app is useful. However, am I now a little worried that we are going to be charged for Craigslist? Yes. Because this app cost some money to build. I hope not though, maybe Craig is just good at saving and just used savings for this!
  • 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!!!
  • Shopping for boats

    By Roycebu69
    I was a fan of Craigslist since 12 yrs ago then I stop opening it whenever I need to shop something and instead went to different apps. But just 3 days ago I went back and use Craigslist to find something I need. To my surprise, Craigslist had improved on its presentation and a numerous variety of products you can select to engage. Here, you can still count on the prices to be within your site. I still love doing business with Craigslist. More power to you!!
  • Great app

    By Tango-FL
    Great for what you need. Super glad they finally updated this to be able to work in landscape or portrait displays. The only gripe is I still wish you could sort your favorites (price, distance, etc.) rather than just getting it based on when the listing was posted. Other than that, it is exactly what this type of app needs to be. No sponsored results in the middle of your list or things you “should” be interested in; only things you actually were looking for.
  • Been Using C-List Since 1997 and...

    By lovesaerobics
    ... and I could not be happier that you brought back your app, Craig Newmark! Actually, IDK if Craig’s involved anymore bc Jim Buckmaster’s the CEO but I digress... Thanks to both of you guys and everyone else at C-List! The mobile app is stable as fork! Very solid. Love it. Well done! Good job to your staff! Bc of all you guys, I sold my couch in 3 days. Easiest and fastest sale ever AND made a new business connection! :) CL, you’re not like these new fangled marketplace apps that rhyme with Flofferflup where ads are like a year old and no one responds and they’re mixed in with eBay ads. You have REAL ads with REAL people who sell REAL things because a REAL person just showed up and gave me REAL money for my REAL couch. *Now I’m gonna buy my next used couch with the money I just got... and where might that be? You guessed it! Craigslist mobile app! So thank you for keepin’ it REAL for over 20 years. :)
