I hate the new mobile app that showed up on my phone unannounced and not requested. Theold one was compact and useful. The new one is overloaded and unusable. How do I get back to the previous version?

If I am stuck with it, I will quit using it and delete it from my phone.


Completely agree. Phone also gets hot in a few minutes of app use. This looks like a version from a decade ago, when smartphones were just being adopted. Previous version was way better than this garbage. Don't try to improve things if you don't have any good ideas.


Why ask for the old app, which was WAY better than this new piece of crap? SA knows what's best for you.


its amazing how SO MANY ppl want the old app back - including me. I liked the simple legible text. On my iphone it is so hard to read with small print. Zooming doesnt help. We like simple [think:craigslist] with the facts and quick access to info. Oh and for god sakes, dark mode... Such easy simple things to do which would make me do a paid subscription. But the current app? No way. Someone listening out there?
