OLX Android App

How to search?

Well, as soon as you start the application, you’ll see a tile interface of squared icons with different categories. Since, I’m talking about this app in detail, I would like to list these categories here. The categories that you’ll see in search are

  • For sale – Here you’ll find items that are for sale.
  • Vehicles
  • Real estate
  • Jobs
  • Services
  • Community
  • Classes
  • Matrimonial

On the top, you’ll find location services and an option to post your ad. Once you search for something, you’ll see results from the location that is near to you. That’s how the results would be filtered. There is a custom filter available for changing the listing pattern according the price etc.

Now, if you click on of these ads, you’ll see a new interface where you’ll be able to reply to the ad and call the seller. The description is also present right over in this interface.

When you select the map view to check the items around you, a new window with map and items that are on sale is shown.

Use Camera and Post Ad free

Yes, first of all let me remind you that posting ads on OLX is absolutely free. What’s more is that you can use the camera of your android phone to take the pictures. Later, you can insert these pictures into your ad.


The OLX for Android app is equipped with My OLX features which lets you browse through your own stuff such as ads, favorites and personal messages.

Local Language Support

The OLX is also available in your local language and therefore it is more easy to use. You don’t even need to know anything about English since the local language support is there to help you out.
