Gumtree is one of the top classified ad services in UK and its parent company, eBay, is an equally successful shopping service. Gumtree is currently available to download for free from the Apple iTunes store. The beta version of the app is now available to download from the Google Play Store as well but it is still under works. Gumtree is a great app to sell and buy but recently it has faced some serious backlash regarding its customer support which we’ll look into in this article.
If you’re looking to sell that old piece of furniture or your old TV set, Gumtree is a platform you should explore. It’s not as well built and expansive as some other sites and applications but it still is pretty successful and makes it to the top 25 in the shopping genre on iTunes.
Gumtree is essentially a classified ad service where you can create your own ad in minutes all from your phone. It’s easy and you can do it at your home.

The search filter of Gumtree is pretty smart and diverse functioning as well. It lets you find ads according to price, ad type, seller, property type and location. The app itself is designed pretty well so even the less tech-savvy individuals shouldn’t have any trouble moving around the app. There are, however, a lot of options in the menu so you might have to invest some time exploring all the controls.
Through Gumtree you can also find actual jobs. Ads for jobs are posted everyday on the app and you might get lucky and find an open vacancy for the job of your dreams.
Although Gumtree offers a lot of promising shopping options, it has received a fair amount of criticism with regard to the customer support service of the app. There have also been numerous reports of the app crashing and facing bugs.
