Not working at all. 1,99$ lost.

"Due to an user abusing the usage of PriceWatcher, Amazon has disabled product inquiry service to us, resulting in PriceWatcher not functioning again. We are in contact with Amazon to solve this issue. We apologize for the inconvenience. Stay tuned."

Not working again and their site is replaced by this sentence
:"Due to an user abusing the usage of PriceWatcher, Amazon has blocked product inquiry service to us, resulting in PriceWatcher not functioning again. We are in contact with Amazon to solve this issue. We apologize for the inconvenience. Stay tuned."
One would at least expect to post on a product forum on the dev's site.

Usually works well but today encountered a cryptic "network error 301" with no further explanation. The developer website ( awatcher.net ) has a one line message saying a fix will be posted soon.

There does not seem to be a proper "developer's site" ; just one sentence on a blank page : "We are currently experiencing network problem with Amazon service. A fix will be posted soon."
I have a strange feeling...Hope I'm wrong.

Unhelpful, cryptic "Network error: 301" error dialog on app launch or manual check.

Un-Mac-like app-modal dialog (generic question mark icon, resize control that doesn't work) could be Mac-like sheet, and with badged app icon.)

Anyway, MacUpdate info is out-of-date; current version is 1.7.3 and it's now called PriceWatcher.

That's what I was looking for. A very basic app [though weighty]. Will be looking forward to updates.

This is a nice and handy little application and the fact that it is free for use with up to 5 items makes it even better.

Thanks for the feedback. As I said in an early post, the program was written using 3rd party cross-platform framework. That's why the binary is big. However, I do realize I should be able to reduce the binary size by half by stripping the 64-bit binaries as they are not necessary.

7.1MB for such a "small" app? That's quite a lot.

It uses cross-platform code, that why it is big, and also why it has a Windows version:-) If you're concerned about spyware and such, rest assured. It is 100% clean:)

Great tool! Waiting for the option to watch non-Amazon sellers. That would make this app ultimate.
