  • CraigsMobileList gets a Major Update


    CraigsMobileList (link opens in iTunes), the iPhone app front end for CraigsList, gets a major update to 1.1 here in the next day or two. 1.0.5 is the current version up.

    Rick Krakowski, president of Mobile Simplicity (makers of the app), sent us this:

    The new update, v1.1, addresses many features requested by our users, such as:
    • Support for pictures in listings
    • Improved UI
    • New font
    • Recent locations remembered
    • Added subcategories
    • More locations
    • Ability to name bookmarks
    • Save search terms within bookmarks
    • Restore previous search settings automatically
    • Filter improvements
    • Faster search load times
    • Assorted bug fixes


    If you're a Criagslist user (and who isn't?), this update looks like it makes the iPhone Craigslist browsing experience easy as pie. Nice job, guys.

      I have 2.1 firmware, jailbroken with Winpwn. I never had any problem with the old version of CraigsMobile, but the new version crashes as soon as I do a search. Any ideas how to fix this?

      SSHed into it and the permissions seem correct.

      I would rather pay if it was affiliated with craigslist. They are the most popular site for free listings. I would rather see them profit off of this than the current developer.

      Yeah, kinda same here. I can search but I get a crash when I try to browse all listings for any specific category.

      There is a documented issue with jailbroken phones that used the initial release of Quickpwn for 2.0.1/2.0.2. The subsequent fix was to restore the phone and re-jailbreak using the newest version of Quickpwn. Just re-doing the jailbreak with the newer version without doing the restore first did not work. It seems that something in the specific jailbreak method breaks something that the browse function relies on.

      We're working on figuring out exactly WHAT is different but it's an odd problem. We haven't had any issues reported on non-jailbroken phones and the vast majority of jailbroken phones seem to run the app with no problems whatsoever.

      Jim,

      i'm going to do some testing on a jailbroken v2.1

      We noticed the issues with the 2.0.1 quickpwn original release. We then restored to 2.0.2 and used the quickpwn gui for 2.0.2 and CML worked perfectly.

      If you used the original quickpwn and then upgraded and did a "restore from backup" I wonder if that could have affected it. When we did the restore, we set it up as a new phone (wiped everything) and then just re-synched contacts and apps. Either way, I'll let you know what I come up with. We've only had 3 people report this problem.

      I originally jailbroke my phone using Winpwn 2.5 (for the 2.0.2 FW). When 2.1 FW came out, I upgraded using iTunes, restored as a new phone, then used the new Quickpwn 2.1 to re-jailbreak it.

      When Winpwn 3.0 comes out, I plan on re-doing the jailbreak and restoring again as a new phone. (I want a bigger partition size. Too buggy right now.)

      Hope the extra helps. Thanks for working on it.

      I left this response in our forum for you, but for everyone else here you go:

      I spoke with poorlad (developer of quickpwn) today regarding this issue. He told me that a version of quickpwn was altered and distributed by someone and that people who used it have experienced some odd issues. The fix is to do a restore on your phone, then in iTunes set it up as a new phone and then re-jailbreak using the official quickpwn version from iCommunity - Jailbreak information at a glance (links are on the page).

      We have tested this today and verified that it does fix the problem.

      I agree with people earlier in this thread.... I don't want to pay for this. However givin the much nicer UI I may be inclined to purchase it. I have already spent $150 easy at the appstore, may as well drop another $3
