    I use Craigslist a lot for my business and for some reason all Craigslist apps on any of my devices no longer have the option to upload photos ? I understand that there's adult material on Craigslist and kids teenagers should be protected and not have access to adult material, apple or the app developers need to add parental controls. my iPod touch and iPhone 4s are jailbroken is there any temporary way around this ? I need to be able to upload pics in my Craigslist adds just until the app developers come up with a fix, any suggestions ideas will be very much appreciated :)

    Haha not the answer I was looking for but I'll allow it . I really don't use my laptop any more everything I need to do can be accomplished on my iPad or iPhone 4s can't wait for html5 to replace flash completely

    this is because CL recently changed the way photos are uploaded. You now have to type your body, then go to the next screen to upload. Where as before you did both on the same page.

    I would guess that since the apps are basically just portals to the website they have not been updated yet. I noticed this problem too the other day when I was trying to sell a guitar.

    I would imagine the apps just need a solid update. Maybe some of them have been already.

    Thank you that explains a lot, looks like I'll be booting up the netbook till the apps get updated might do a quick search in the app store see if any have been updated :)

    Found a solution if your device is jailbroke you can install a app from cydia free called safari upload enabler, it lets you select files pictures video like you would on your computer :)

    Has anyone found a decent Craig's app., that has integrated or updated the new photo-uploading process?

    I've been checking daily as of now I haven't came across one. My post above is the only temporary fix for me but if I find one I'll post the info here

    I recently read somewhere that an app called "yardsale" was good for listing stuff on craigslist. I downloaded it but haven't tried it.

    I have a few different craigslist apps, but none of them are perfect. I wish they would release an official app.
