This app took 24 years to make
Craigslist for Mobile

 A brief history of Craigslist:

  • Launches first email distribution list in 1995 
  • Launches mobile app in 2019 

That’s right — as of yesterday, Craigslist is finally (finally!) a mobile experience.

“Wow. I never though I'd see the day.” - Evan

Staying true to its no-frills form, the Craigslist app is superrrr minimalist but as useful as Craigslist itself. Even the color scheme is the same as the web version.

“I like how they maintained the Craigslist ‘look.’ The app UI seems familiar even though it's brand new for the company." - Gabriel

While there are a number of third-party apps for Craigslist out there already, they’re bloated with ads and trackers. Pro tip: It’s not that easy to find the new app in the App Store yet because of all of these alternatives with better SEO. The App Store link on this page will point you in the right direction. 👈

What’s new: with the new Craigslist app, users can set up alerts, save posts and searches, place and edit ads, favorite things and browse for items. It basically replicates the simple experience that is...using Craigslist.

Earlier this year, it was speculated that Craigslist’s annual revenue could be over $1 billion, which is saying a lot since the product hasn’t really changed over the years. 🙌


In this week’s edition of Product Hunt Radio, we talked to Director of Content Marketing at Constant Contact Dave Charest about contributing to online communities as a marketer, which marketing channels to focus on and common mistakes people make in email marketing.

We’ll be back next week with another special guest, so be sure to subscribe on Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Spotify, Breaker, Overcast, or wherever you listen to your favorite podcasts. 😸
