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.

It has been 3 days since I purchased this widget via Paypal.
I still have not received the registration code.

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!!

the developer should be selling this program to ebay to give away. this is not worth $5. i'll use sherlock to track my auctions for free. thanks.

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".

Pffft.

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.
