OLX has re-launched their mobile app. It is now very easy to use, simple and very fast loading. OLX listened to its customers who said that the OLX app was too slow and complicated to use.  It also could not support low HTML files.

All you have to do is go to the Google Play Store (for android phones), IOS, Nokia and Blackberry app stores and download the OLX app. It is now easy to submit a new advert. The OLX app  screen will open to submit a free ad. At the top of the screen there is an add photo button which when you click goes to your photos and you can select which photos you want to use.
