This Craigslist app is more like a mobile browser with a bare-minimum UI on the inside. You can browse many cities at a time but there are no advanced features like night mode.
You start selecting a city either manually or using GPS and start searching by keywords or by category. You’ll see a list of your recent search history but that’s it. However, you can save individual listings or search phrases so there’s that. The best thing is that if you find yourself sending the same message or reply over and over again, you can save it as a template and re-use it whenever you want.
