    The icon is white with a tree on it. Tap once to open it up. It will automatically take us to our home page, which is indicated by a green house icon in the bottom left-hand corner. Next to that, we have a camera icon, which says "Post" beneath it.

    It gives us the option to add some information about what we want to advertise.

  6. 6
    Press "Add a Photo"
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  7. 7
    Press the first box, which is highlighted in a darker gray
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  8. 8
    Press "Camera" on the pop-up window that appears
    .
    If this is our first time, we will get a message that says ""Gumtree" Would Like to Access the Camera".
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  9. 9
    Press "OK"
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help

    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  11. 11
    Press the circle button at the bottom of the phone to take a photo
    .
    We're looking at the photo now, not the camera.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  12. 12
    Tap "Use Photo" if we like it, or "Retake" if we're not happy with it
    .
    We're going to say "Use Photo". If this is our first time, Gumtree will need photo access as well, not just camera access.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  13. 13
    Press "OK"
    .
    Now our photo is available.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  14. 14
    Add another one by tapping on the next dark gray square icon
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  15. 15
    Press "Photo Library"
    .
    Because Gumtree has access to our photos, we can select directly from our library.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  16. 16
    Tap a thumbnail
    .
    We will select one of our previously taken photos. A white checkmark will appear to show we have selected it.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  17. 17
    Press "Done" in the top right-hand corner of the screen
    .
    We can add up to eight different pictures, but we will just do two for now.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  18. 18
    Press "Ad details" to go back
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  19. 19
    Press "Advert Title"
    .
    Type in a title.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  20. 20
    Tap on "Enter a description for your Ad"
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  21. 21
    Type in the description, whatever it is, depending on the item
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  22. 22
    Press "Subject Category"
    .

    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  24. 24
    Press any sub-categories
    .
    We will choose "Appliances" and "Dishwashers".
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  25. 25
    Check the page for any red text
    .
    In our demonstration, our description is red, because it does not meet the "Minimum 12 words" requirement.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  26. 26
    Tap to edit it
    .
    We will fill ours in with gibberish. It's definitely at least 12 words now, and no longer red.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  27. 27
    Press "Enter Price"
    .
    We'll say "1.00". One pound, for nothing.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  28. 28
    Check over all details
    .
    When we're happy, press "Next" in the top right corner.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  29. 29
    Add contact information
    .
    We should have our email enabled and our phone as well. The sliders will be blue if these are enabled. If we prefer to be contacted by email, we could disable our phone by tapping once on the adjacent slider so it turns gray. It's the same for email as well, although email is compulsory. Disabling it turns the text red, which means it's not valid. Let's get rid of our "Contact Phone" option.

  33. 33
    Use the slider icon to enable or disable "Show a map on my ad"
    .
    It is enabled automatically, but we can disable as well if we like.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  34. 34
    Press "Contact" in the top left corner to go back
    .

    Our ad has been posted.

  37. 37
    Press "Done" in the top right-hand corner
