Latest version is almost unusable for posting ads
Not sure what you have done to the iOS Gumtree app with the latest update but it just chokes when posting ads with a couple of pictures. I have had to resort to using the web portal via Safari to list my ads and add some photos. This is good until you try to use the iOS app to try and rotate or crop the already uploaded photos. The app just hangs. 10-20min to rotate one photo?
Am using the Gumtree app on latest iOS 11.3.1 on both an iPad Air 2 and an iPhone X. Am using the latest version of the Gumtree app which if I recall was updated a week or so ago. Pretty much unuseable for posting ads at the moment.
The gumtree concept is great - been using it to clear out unwanted goods for a couple of years and it is very quick and convenient. Just spent time chatting online with Gumtree support about the problem with the latest version of the app and they were very good. Hopefully the app developers will get the photo glitch sorted soon.
Only 1 flaw, but it’s a big one!!
I’ve only recently created & started using my own GumTree account & so far, I absolutely love it & think the app is great ...except that whenever I switch apps to share a link or anything else, even if it’s literally for a matter of a few seconds, then when I switch back to the GumTree app, it totally refreshes so I loose where I was up to in my search & have to wait for the app to reload as if I’m opening it for the first time & then do my search again & find where I was up to... This isn’t happening cause I’m “totally closing the app off” either, I’m talking about when I simply leave GumTree running in the background for a second just so I can quickly copy, paste & send a link for an ad to my partner in our messaging app, it happens EVERY time & it’s super annoying... I’ve looked through the app settings & can’t find anything to change to make this stop, I’ve also got “background app refresh” switched on in my iPhone settings too, so I can’t think of any way to possibly fix this & it doesn’t happen with any other apps, not even other Auction & Buying apps, it’s super frustrating & has been making me just give up looking at certain times, my partner & I are rebuilding a car so when we’re looking for parts, I’m always wanting to share a lot of links for ads to him for him to take a look at, other than that, the app is great, it’s just that one flaw that’s super frustrating!!
Developer Response ,
Thanks for your review and sorry for your frustration!
I've forwarded your comments to our development team so that they can be aware. In the meantime, you may want to try deleting and reinstalling the app to see if this helps.
Thanks for taking the time to let us know what you think.

Beware of scammers
I have had several really successful sales and would recommend Gumtree to anyone.
However I want to detail an experience I had a couple of days ago. I was trying to sell a valuable for my grandfather that was a couple thousand dollars. Someone named Juan got in contact with me via email and said due to his hearing problem he could only use email. He said he lived overseas and would need to have an ‘agent’ come to collect the item for him. He said I’d need to sign some papers. After several emails back and forth with me basically asking what he was wanting me to sign, he said collection and delivery papers. We agreed on a price of $4500 and I gave him my bank details. Suddenly he says ‘and I’m paying $2000 for delivery’. I get a bank statement saying he’s put in $6500. I tell him I’d like to transfer the $2000 back as it’s his responsibility to pay the courier.
Here’s the probable scam...
He then sends me these really shady bank statements that say I will only get the money once I pay for the delivery ($2000) and the money has been ‘held’.
It was at this point that I realised the scam is you pay the person $2000 and then they suddenly disappear and you get no money for the item.
Luckily I realised and told him I was no longer interested and blocked him from my emails. The main message for me is never give a buyer your money. They will try to rush you to make quick decisions.
Gumtree is great, but be careful. Hope this has helped!
