OLX Free Classifieds for iOS Review
The OLX Classifieds for iOS app is available as a free download on the App Store. It’s quite easy to get started with posting an ad or viewing offers from other people.
But first, you need to set up your location. You can do this manually or using Google’s location services and you can select from over 100 countries across the globe.. The app’s user interface is clean and intuitive with well defined categories and subcategories to quickly discover what you are looking for. A search box at the top of the app also makes finding that elusive item that much more easier.
The app also has a brilliant feature that lets you search nearby locations if you can’t find what you’re looking for in a particular area. A neat slider at the top lets you increase the distance from 5 kms to the entire country, if you need to.
Additional filters include searching by date, price, and photos, and it looks like they have thought of just about everything to make the process effortless for users.
