This app is terrible. I've had it a week and it's already cost me thousands of dollars in watches I probably would not have found had I not had this app. The developer did an amazing job, seriously. Really well done and slick the way that the photos, location, make and model and price are parsed out. I never review apps but I just had to review this one to provide feedback to the developer. To make this app even better, a couple things. 1) have the option to parse the text from the sales post into the quick view screen as this often includes descriptive details. I would rather not have to load up the full view of the webpage with all the ads and stuff every time I want more information on a sale. 2) add ability for more quick search/alerts. 3) push badge and banner notifications instead of having to load the app to see notifications. 4) if possible be able to load the full size images so again, I don't need to open the full view to zoom in and see more detail. 5) index sales posts from further back in time. Right now it appears to only go back to January or early February. Often need to search further back to look for rarer items or to price compare a sales price. I would gladly pay $2-5 for this app if even half of these recommendations were implemented. Great job!
The app provides a basic snapshot of watches, but you usually need to visit the actual website where the watch is listed to see pertinent information, and that is where this app fails. Rather than just linking you to the site, the app seems to be doing something in the middle because loading any outside webpage in “Full View” from the app causes a LONG pause or a crash before you actually get to the page where the watch is listed. It’s very noticeable and not something you would experience if you just clicked a normal link to a website. Something needs to be fixed here.
I've used the browser version since its inception, and just downloaded this, and I am impressed. It's every bit as simple and intuitive as the website, and adds something with the alert feature. Very clean, simple, no bull. Excellent job.
This app is a bit specialized so obviously it's not for everyone, but if you buy/sell/trade watches from people in online forums, this will change your life. Very well executed and fictions perfectly. Thanks for making this free (I'd pay for this).
The app is very basic, it works but needs an overdue update
Discovered some filtering for the app but it needs more like in the website!! Please add Better search filters and multiple filter capabilities! I started using chrome on phone for the website as it gives me better searches. :/
I use the desktop version of this app all the time and have email notifications. The only drawback with this app is that you can’t connect to your online account. I would have to resign up for all my alerts.
I like the app if it didn't crash every so often, wish this would get fixed, used on original iPad. update, I am thinking this was made for iPhone, now we need a iPad version. also please increase amount of watched watches, how can someone narrow it down to 5? It's barbaric i tell you! Update 2 The app still crashes ever once in while, Used on ipad air. 7.4.
No. Never. Don’t. This app is great if you want terrible results. It has a tiny fraction of results compared to a side by side search on eBay. Probably better results if you tried using a phone book to look for Watches.
This app does what we all want, let's us shop for watches while we poop. A few features I'd love: have the ability to mark a listing as 'not interested' so we don't see it on our alerts anymore, and the ability to zoom on photos.
