Handy program, but it would be nice to see a modern icon, the current one is really not very attractive.

So i have to install Java 6 to make this software work. Java 6 has several bugs and security issues, so no Auction Sieve for me.

The downloaded file is flagged as damaged (on 10.9.3); I've re-downloaded even from the developer's site and the problem remains.

How is this any different from using eBay's search tools?

Thanks for this wonderful free app. It really helps me a lot finding the items I am interested in. Definitely worth a pure 5 of 5 stars rating from me...

Downloaded this, in 'Search term' I typed 'Denon Receiver' and up came 48 results including 'Remote Nitro Car', 'PC keyboard', 'Earphone Headset'. Perhaps in 'Search Term' I should have put 'find' ?? Even if I didn't set it correctly, where did all this stuff come from? I didn't ask for what showed up? Straight in the bin for me.

Interesting application but "trash words" filter only in titles not in descriptions, so the excluding words must be in the title otherwise the item is still listed.

Looks nice. Only problem I'm having is when trying to VIEW an auction in Safari. I'm using Saft, and instead of the auction appearing, I get the following. file:///Library/InputManagers/Saft/Saft.bundle/Contents/Resources/space.gif I think it's probably a Saft problem, so I'm not attributing the issue to AuctionSieve. However, it is a major pain since Saft is one of those 'can't live without it' apps that I'm not prepared to give up.... Shame.

Wow - about time this program got an update! This app is so helpful, and it seems to be the only one of its kind. It's not easy to communicate how f$#@%^g frustrating the eBay search pages can be. Your program is a miracle -- I was wondering why nobody had created something useful to deal with eBay's awful site. Everytime you put in a new query, eBay loads up the whole damn page again, taking its sweet time, wasting mine. I pull my hair out on a daily basis going through all the junk on eBay. I love how you can simply download all the listings at once here, then instantly sort (sieve...) through them. I hope this app gets the attention it deserves, so it can keep getting updates and step closer to perfection. I love it. My only gripe -- your icon (or logo... whatever the brown picture is here on MU) is a bit dark and hard to see. At first I thought it was one of those "vistalite" drum kits. The actual program icon is nice though... maybe you're already getting to that...? Eh. Kudos to a truly handy little app! Keep this thing alive!

To append my prior question I just read reply by author to similar question below. Author says "Hi, I'm part of the eBay affiliate program - it's how I can afford to give away the program for free and not even display ads within the app. eBay run their affiliate program through commission junction." So that answers my question. Otherwise, appears to be excellent software!

Is it just me or did I miss a disclaimer stating that whenever you click on a link to an auction you are first directed (*very* quickly) through some pay-for-performance marketing company's site? http://www.cj.com/qksrv.jsp

I love this program, it makes searching eBay auctions so much easier. And the developer is great if you do encounter problems, he's really willing to help. And the new checkbox features for viewing multiple auctions at once is fantastic.

I have a dial-up connection and really appreciate this app. I can have it get auctions while I do something else, and then go through hundreds of auctions at once. I wish I could figure out where the view command sends the browser to (i.e., it's not directly to eBay). I would like to know this because I use PithHelmet and I'd like to be able to exempt whatever ad site auctionsieve uses. (I hope this makes sense--if not, try running AS with PithH. on and you'll see).

Still not working quite properly. If I search with a sieve and it has only 2 pages of results, then switch to another sieve with 10 pages of results, only 2 pages will show up. I have to figure out which sieve will bring the most results and start with that one first.

Good basis for an auction tool; responsiveness of the developer is a plus with ebay's constant changes. Feature set good although a dropdown sieve list and draggable links would be nice (value is 5 when for as long as it's free; might change depending on the price and eventual feature set, of course).

Well, now it's now working very well again. When I download new auctions, it only shows the first 15 items or 1 page, no matter how many pages it downloaded.

Thanks for the quick fix, it's working great now! The only other thing I would like to see is the "Time frame" option on Sieves that use the eBay search, not just the ones that just use a category for the searches.

New version 1.3.3 fixes the fairly critical bug whereby search details were not being saved. Also adds support for international eBay sites! Just run AuctionSieve and you'll be notified of the update. If not, select 'Check for updates' from the Tools menu.

Nice potential, but also frustrating in that it doesn't seem to remember Sieves that you set up. Nothing worse than setting up all the search options and then having to do it again the next time you want to search. Otherwise, it looks to be pretty cool, a lot faster than searching through the eBay site. And the price is right.
