Craigslist launches official iPhone app... 11 years after the launch of the iPhone

Craigslist launches official iPhone app... 11 years after the launch of the iPhone
It's finally here: the official Craigslist app for iPhone has arrived on the Apple App Store.

And yes, it took Craigslist all of 11 years since the launch of the App Store to finally come up with an official app, but it's here and it is just as retro looking as the website. And nope, don't expect to see the casual encounters section that Craigslist deleted on the website a few years ago.

But it sure gets the job done. It's simple, it's not complicated.

And in case you have not used it recently, here is what Craigslist is good for:


Users also seem to be quite happy with the app and so far it has a 4.6 out of 5 stars rating. It's free and you can check it out right below:

There were many craigslist apps since the the beginning (I remember it was one of the first apps I installed on my first phone). It was third party, but it worked great until... Craigslist changes something - and after that the app would be broken unless it gets updated. Happy to see an official app, finally.

Plenty of good Android 3rd part apps out there but I never understand why you would launch one OS without the other.

When I was on Samsung - I’ve noticed this happens quite often.

Agreed and distribution is about 45% android 55% iPhone in the united states. It makes no sense to ignore 45% of the people who have a smartphone in the USA. Worldwide its 75% android 23% iPhone I will say this though the chrome browser works very well and you don't sctually need an app.
