A brief history of Craigslist:
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. 🙌
