  • 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.
  • Works Great!

    By susie107
    Easy to use and looks good, better than using CL on the browser. There’s easy tabs for navigating and you can easily manage postings and see which are active and renew with one click. Photos upload easily. Switching around photos to change which is the primary is MUCH easier on the app than in browser where you have to do touch screen acrobatics to move photos around. My only issue isn’t with the app but Craigslist in general and that’s the vague rules about pet posts and “free to good homes”, whether they’re allowed or not and there’s some algorithm that either deletes rehoming posts immediately based on certain words? or users are allowed to spend hours just flagging any ads that compete with their home-based animal rescue. Either way, the real victims are the animals that people end up abandoning because there’s no easy way to find good new homes.
  • 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.
  • Photo down load problems

    By GOB (grumpy old bastard )
    Won’t let me go to a new photo that I gave in my Library ? I can make one listing , then go to make another one and try to download new pictures and it keeps taking me to the ones I just used on the first listing and dosent give me any option to download new pictures until the next day . I normally use Marketplace because it’s so easy to load several items in a few minutes . Craigs list should mimic Marketplace . You are way more difficult to do business with . If I want my phone number on my listing that’s my business. Period. ! Shouldn’t have to click anything to show it , jyst makes it more difficult for potential buyers to get ahold of me . STOP , I’ll be playing around with your service for. 30 days . But if things don’t get easier, I’ll go back to Marketplace and try to hold my Republican tung 🙂
  • Great ... would love a couple of updates

    By detemplesaint
    I would like a way to keep the same filters when I move the map to a different area. Sometimes this works but I don’t think it’s by default. Also, it would be nice if there were a bit more vetting going on with regard to contacting sellers etc. The fishing is truly out of hand. It seems some of the scammers are hiding behind what used to be solid security measures. Perhaps a consumer/seller rating system would also be of use. Reinvention is the mother of transparency. Old complacent ideas make room for all kinds of mischief. Maybe a simple “we’re you able to getting this seller/merchant on the phone” pop up. Then yes or no. Several “no’s” would lead to bad ratings and perhaps some pinpointing and further eliminating this round of scammers who’ve infiltrated the system. Thanks so much. Otherwise, great app.
  • Find what you need sell what you don’t

    By scones007
    Craigslist still works good. There is always going to be people that try and ruin a good thing. Just be aware of the scammers. Once you know how they operate it’s easy to detect them . Don’t let them keep you from selling your stuff. Not to worry they usually aren’t selling anything just trying to get you to ship whatever your selling to them with all kinds of excuses. I have met lots of real nice people just from buying & selling items, just use your head and if it sounds to good to be true it probably is. Thanks Craigslist for having such a place you can find just about anything you want and sell whatever it is and it’s all for free!
  • Gigs

    By charlespayton
    For years I’ve used Craigslist’s. It is literally one of the most useful app on the whole internet. With anything from wares to furniture and more, it provides a place for you to barter confidently. On top of that, it allows you to shop for available apartments or homes which I’ve utilized multiple times. My favorite aspect of CL is the the job and gig section. Here you are able to post and ad or search through ads from other peoples postings. It can either be a day, couple of days, or a new position all together, still, being a person who’s relied a lot on many cash jobs over the years, Craigslist has literally kept me paid. For that I say, Thank you. You are truly a life saver. Amen.
  • 2005 Audi A8 Quattro L

    By Guttie716
    2005 Audi A8 Quattro L in mint condition. Very nice car for someone who has time to fix a couple minor things. Engine and transmission is very strong and reliable. New brakes and rotors, new timing belt, new water pump and thermostat. Ac and heat just serviced so that’s perfectly working. Rear suspension just gave out, radio comes on and off which is most likely an Mmi piece ( est 100$ ). Needs to be smogged, minor leak causing failure. I gave the car to my 17 year son for his birthday and I’m selling basically to get him something more feasible for him to drive everyday and not worry about fixing a German automobile … asking 5k or best offer. Car just needs to be detailed via carpet, also has 20 inch Dub rims on it …. Contact me for viewing
  • 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.
  • Sold my Mountain Bike in a couple of hours on Craig’s List

    By jmedvm
    I listed my mountain bike on Craig’s List this morning and immediately got contacted by 5 people wanting to see it today. The first person who came bought it. It was a good deal but I had it listed for a few days on Offer Up and FB marketplace. Lots of interest but only a few people followed through and 2 offered to buy it at full price then tried to haggle me down once they came to see it even though I said the price was firm. I do not know if this is because of where I listed or not but the Craig’s List response was swift and the people who responded were genuinely interested in buying it. Thank you!
