Just needs slightly better filtering options
I've used WR for years via the web, and having an app for it is great, I just wish it had more filtering options like the website.

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!

Not great
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.

Crazy well-done!
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.

Hands down the best app for private sale finds
Stop searching through forums for deals. This gives you everything in one app with alerts. It’s fantastic. Just wish you could make more saved results.

Great app for buying watches
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. :/

Great app, useful
This is a great app. This is an app I use every day and it works every time. I just can't say enough about this app. It works perfectly as designed, if every app was this useful it would be amazing.

Only missing one thing
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.

Best watch buying app ever
The app is an excellent resource for watch collectors. It works smoothly, I’ve never had a crash, and it searches all the major forums for private listings.

Watch Recon is a fantastic app. It keeps me from having to search multiple websites each day to find the watches I want.

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.

App crashes
This app is great but has started crashing almost every time I look at a full listing. Would love to see it updated and get back to a 5 star app.

Should be like version 0.2
Very rudimentary search, returns wide results based on search parameters, then apparently no way to delete any of the returned results.

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.

Love the website and the app is great too.
I use the website all the time and this mimics all the features of the website. Would have loved to give 5 stars if the alerts integrated with the notification center.

This app is so well executed. You can set up alerts for watches you're interested in as well as the normal functions of the website.

Great app
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.
