Craigslist has been started in 1995-but surprisingly, it has not had an official app in the decade or so since the smartphone era began. Well, that's all changed. You can now find the official, free app for iOS .
Like the website, the mobile app is extremely simple-no frills, bells, or whistles. The app's overall design mimics the website as well, meaning its mostly just text and a clean interface. As you'd imagine, that makes the app extremely fast and easy to load. There's a post tab that streamlines straight from your phone. Not that making a craigslist post what ever hard, but the app does make the process a lot smoother.
Even the app's description is the bare minimum. Hemingway-esque musing on internet life.

Right now, the app ranks no. 14 in the App Store's shopping category and has an overall rating 4.6 out of 5 star rating from 63 reviews. Not too shabby considering version 1.0 dropped just yesterday. It's just mildly surprising that the launch has been so quiet. The site stealthily launched beta testing for the official app on its website at indeterminate time ago, though it's not easy to find the link on the main site. Although it looks like a link to the Android beta test here .
