      Should be fixed now Mol. You will need to readd your old alerts. There is two more problems that need to be fixed and will be fixed by the end of the day. Is it still not working for you? What are you searching for (location, category, search terms, price? I can reproduce the problem if you tell me.

    Hi, I have vibrate turned off for my notifications but it still vibrates every time any new alert comes. I find it really annoying so would like to correct this. I also want it to check for new alerts on wifi only, which is how I have my settings but it continues to access my phone data when out of range for wifi. Please help!!

      Both issues will be fixed for the next release. Android 6.0 broke it.

    Ability to edit existing saved search is missing. Please add. Great app otherwise!

      That’s a feature I will be adding down the road.

      Thanks πŸ™‚

    When I delete/read a notification, when the app checked Kijiji it sends me another notification that it’s there.
    It would he good if the app knew that it already sent you the notification.

    The “show only unread” option reverts back to the “no” status when you leave the app.

    I’m wanting to be notified of the new listing, say thank you I’ve seen it, and then have the app “forget” about it and focus on telling me of the next one.

      I’ll send you an email soon. Need some clarification on what you’re talking about.

    Is there a way to search for exact phrase/wording? I have a saved search for tires, i.e. 225/45/17. I am inundated with alerts for all ads that have 225, 45, or 17 in the ad. I tried putting quotations around the search phrase, to no avail. Thanks!

      I will look into it. This might be an issue with Kijiji’s search (if it returns the same thing with Kijiji’s search, there’s not much I can do. For now, I recommend using “Web View Mode” on the “New Alert” screen. If you need instructions on how to do this, let me know and I will help you out!

    • Evan Parsons

      For those reading this in the future, use dashes instead of slashes when you input tire size (ie, 225-40-18 not 225/40/18)

    Wondering if there’s a way to temporarily pause an alert, and then turn it back on, say a few weeks later?
    Otherwise, great work on a truly useful app!

      Hi Shia,

      Sort of.

      You can disable all or nothing If you go into the settings, and turn the service completely off. I’ll add your idea to the list of features I want in the next version as I agree flicking between alerts would be tedious if you have a large amount of them.

    Hi there! The preview feature seems to be not working, stating that the ad no longer exists!

      Hi Darik! I’m working on it now as we speak!

    Awesome app! Been hoping someone would think of this idea sooner or later lol. Is there anyway you could add a option to accept other websites like other classified websites to ?

      Hi Mike
      A Craigslist app is in the works as we speak. It will likely be an entirely new app though.

        Oh if you. Ould have craigslist and kijiji would be awesome.

          Craigslist will be an entirely separate app coming later this year. It’s in the works man!

    Awesome app, however I observed a time lag in the notification. I only get notifications when I hit the refreshed button. Am using Samsung s9 plus.

    Please any suggestion for instant alert without hit the refresh button.

    The app used to go back to the list of adds it now goes to kojiji instead of to the list of adds in the app. This is annoying
    As I have to go back to launch the app then go to adds every time I hit the back button.

      Nothing I can do about dude. Once I hand the URL off to Android, I have no control over the app that handles the link to the ad! My best advice I can give you is to use preview mode.

    Not sure if it s me but I think before we could preview an ad, explorer all pictures and description then click “back” to return to the app. Now it doesn’t work anymore, I have to reopen the Canadian Classified app from the home screen because the back button always keep me on kijiji.

    Edit:just see it has been already reported and no solution
