We bet you spend a lot of time looking for cars on Craigslist. There are a ton of places to search for cars for sale, but we just keep coming back to the trusty site. And now searching is getting a little easier for iPhone users because Craigslist finally has an iOS app.
Previously, you had to rely on third-party apps, like BRZO and AutoTempest, or a web browser, to search Craigslist on your phone. Those two third-party apps are still worth using, since they make nationwide searching easier, and in the case of AutoTempest, pull in results from other classified sites. And if you have an Android phone, they’re even more appealing, as it seems Craigslist only made an official iOS app. We’ve reached out to the company to see if it plans on releasing an Android app and we’ll update if we hear back.
The app itself is easy to use, and lets you search within a 250-mile radius. There are the important filters, too, including transmission type and for sale by dealer or owner. You can’t message sellers through the app, though. Instead, it just gives you an email address, or the seller’s phone number, if they’ve chosen to provide it. You can save searches, too, but you can’t get push notifications if a new listing comes up—as with the website, you can only select email notifications.
So, the official Craigslist app is a little limited compared to some of competitors, but that’s not entirely surprising for this company. At least it’s finally a thing.
