eBay Watcher is a Dashboard widget that allows you to monitor up to 3 auctions at once, see information ranging from title, auction number, image, current price, time left and much more.

You can set the auction refresh time from every 5 seconds up to an hour! Ebay Watcher will also play a sound when the auction price changes, even if your aren't in Dashboard. It's so simple to use, just type in your auction number in the search field and hit return and you will be instantly displayed with the auction details

The demo, or unregistered, version works on a 50-50 basis and only even numbered auctions. It will either show you the more...

If you change your hardware often this a useless application. i have had to purchase twice over the last two years as each license is tied to one mac and the developer refuses to give new serial numbers to activate on new hardware. As someone who supports shareware this is a very disappointing developer registration process.

No, the biggest problem w/ this widget is not the (escalating) price, it's that it doesn't work!

None of the tabs will activate when I click on them, so I'm stuck at the "Auction" tab but even there, its sub tabs do not work. The settings "i" is oddly located and difficult to initiate. The crowning bug though is that when "i" is selected, it just turns the widget all the way around; it doesn't take you to a data entry area...so you've got no means to enter the eBay credentials to use!!

Maybe this is the limitations of the demo, but if that's the case, I'm sure not paying $10 based on an interface.

Thank you for the code. There was a mix-up in the Spam filter. Still. the registration is quite complicated. Otherwise a nice little widget.

Works beautifully - for those of you complaining about the two licences, get a life! - it's only five bucks, and well worth it! I do have a few suggestions, the UI needs a serious facelift - it would be cool if I could see all three auctions simultaneously. I don't care about screen real estate. You also need to show the sellers items (I am sure this will be in 3.2)...Also the yellow doesn't work for me, this widget needs some style! Good job though!!

One word: Hunkajunk.

What kind of demo doesn't allow you to actually demo on your own terms? 5 bucks to see an odd numbered auction?

I have one computer. Not two. Most people have one computer. Not two.

With this kind of "demo", I'd be afraid for 5 bucks i'd get a new message telling me "and for only 5 dollars more, we'll start to display numeric characters".


One good thing, you managed to help me set a new record for how quickly I could install and then subsequently trash something.

Selling two licenses for $5 even if a user might only need one license is not a smart marketing move. At that price thw widget is too expensive. Also, I sorely miss the feature to snipe auctions, which would more than justify the prize for this - so far - pure eBay listing widget. Moreover, testing the reliability of any app when it works on a 50:50 chance in unregistered mode is simply impossible. There's no money-back guarantee if the widget still does not update properly after registration. Nahh... this one needs to go back to the drawing board.

If you are finding that eBay Watcher won't watch your auctions all the time, you are probably running a demo version and not a full registered version. The demo version is limited to 'even' auction numbers and works on a 50-50 basis.

Registering the widget will lift these limitations.

Version 2.1 is not improved. It still doesn't update and loses track of the auctions it is supposed to be tracking.

Not sure why you are having problems in version 2.1. The widget always keeps track and updates to whatever you set it to. The growl notification works in unison with it. The only time you will loose your tracked item is on a restart/shutdown and that's only because you can't add a search result into a preference. Putting your Mac in sleep mode, should retain your tracked item. If you are having a different problem please get in touch and we'll try to help.


Just had a thought, are you running the demo version (which only works on a 50-50 basis) or are your running a full unrestricted licensed version?
