1 shares, the UK’s no.1 classifieds website, has introduced a variety of new features to its iOS app to make searching for a bargain even easier. The app, which remains at the top spot in the free ‘lifestyle apps’ category, now lets users search for items and services by choosing a search radius from a postcode and a location (including their current location). In short, users can get exactly what they want, where they want it.

Other big improvements to Version 2.7.0 includes saved searches that sync with Gumtree on other platforms, providing email alerts for any regular searches as well as a new homepage takeover, allowing for a transformation of the homepage to have a direct impact on our visitors.



Polly Howden, Mobile Product Manager at says: “With over 4 million downloads of our iOS app, our top priority is to make it easy for users to find what they are looking for within a convenient distance.The new search feature means they can specify how far they are willing to travel, which varies a lot depending on the size and value of an item! Saved searches are now synched across our apps and the desktop site. We hope this makes for a more personal and seamless use so that users have a successful Gumtree experience. As a ‘top 100’ app in the AppStore, we’ve plenty more innovation to come – so watch this space!”
