Ratings and Reviews




Nice and Clean

Interface is smooth, not clunky. Liking the ability to Swipe left on the title in order to favorite or hide a listing. Images are sharp and overall usability is pretty straight forward. Quite frankly, it’s a simplistic style that many of us have been waiting on and expected from Craigslist (which is already known for its usability by even the most novice of users). No longer do we have to use 3rd party apps that we’re trying to do what we knew CL could do themselves. Good job!




Worth the wait?!

Free stuff to a house in how many trades?

Clearly, this app has been a long time coming…about 7 years longer than most of us wanted, I expect.

After only a little use, this app looks very polished. Clearly Craigslist worked hard on getting this right. The fonts are big and clear. The interface is responsive and seems to have all the functionality I want – not just search, but also favorites (saved postings), posting creation and Craigslist account access. I’m also pleased to see a feedback form right up front, as well, which hopefully means they are looking to be responsive to improvement ideas and reported problems.

Way to go, Craigslist! Well done!




Too Little, Too Late

This app does nothing to solve ongoing problems in using Its online classifieds: no identity verification. No escrow. No proof required you own the place you’re listing the ad for. No action from an employee if you can prove a rental listing is a scam.

Craigslist has held back online classifieds back using its market position for too long. Releasing this app, in late 2019 shows how desperate it is as it’s market position is eroded by FB marketplace, and a litany of other apps that actually care about user experience.

Hope Craig enjoyed his run because it is just about over and this app won’t do much to change that.
