A huge step backward from version 2 in my opinion. You can't use folders and therefore it's hard to manage big list of searches. You're stuck with alphabetic sorting for searches. No more ical alerts. Why break something that works ? (my guess is because of iOS version)

I can't use this version, I stay with v2 for now.

I recently purchased GarageSale, which I like so I was curious to try GarageBuy. I like the interface but for me there was one major problem that had me deleting this app after 5 minutes. Towards the end of the auction it doesn't show the countdown in seconds when most of the action really happens, so it seems to be fatally flawed. I don't understand why it's like this.

Since last update i have sometimes (1:5 runs) major problem after starting GB:
1. GB starts up and shows "No Online Connection" uper rigth corner. No searches are shown on the left side.
2. After that GB hangs
3. Even more problem - after that i cant start any other app they all stall. THat happenes to all Apps whoch needs internet. But i am sure that my internet connection is 100% available in this time.
I have to reboot in this case to get other apps working again.
Hope that is fixed in that version.

Happens again, but without blocking the whole mac. I got lots of errors in the console after try to run GB.

16.03.13 07:03:51,095 GarageBuy[14042]: -[IHEFConnector sendRequestString:verb:] sendSynchronousRequest returned error: Zeitüberschreitung bei der Anforderung. (data length: 0)

Happens before the window to connect / disable some iOS device comes up.
Q: Why always that window comes up and asks to connect to such in device - i dont have such iOS device.

A worthy upgrade but missing some useful features from version 2. Searches are now listed alphabetically and can't be grouped in folders. The only show/hide option is for items that have been read - previously you could hide/delete items from the list leaving those you are interested in still visible.

At least the "Brings back list view mode " change was great. I hated the new view design of V3 - looks nice but was much, much less useful to look FAST! what i will find. :)
Thanks getting back V2 list view!

This is the perfect ebay manager for me. It gives me the perfect overview in a very nice and perfectly usable graphical presentation.

What I love most:

- Autoupdate and autosave when you change some search criteria
- Ability to duplicate searches
- The push function for uploading the locally watched items to the ebay watch list
- The progress bar representation of the remaining time of watched items
- iCal integration
- Growl integration


A (very minor) flaw is that you can't copy the auction number from the auction details window (you have to load the web page into the viewer to copy the number).

Version 2.0.5 has sorted out the problems that have existed since they introduced version 2.

A great shame that it took so long to rectify the serious flaws that existed in version 2, however it has been working reliably for me since I installed version 2.0.5 two weeks ago.

Version 2.0.4 is still an absolute disaster area and not fit for use.

The position of the centre bar is reset each time the program is launched and the scroll bars don't work properly yet either. Worst of all is that every few days the whole system will reset itself and you'll have to trawl through all those ebay auctions you'd already hidden leaving you with no way to identify the news ones.

After four updates you'd have thought they'd manage to at least fix the basic operation of the software. Oh, and don't bother trying to contact the developers because they simply ignore any messages you may send.

I hope this fixes the problems. I could never get this program to work and I couldn't ever get a response from the developer. That's a really bad sign.

Since the upgrade to version 2 this programme has become unstable, searches freeze for no apparent reason; after restarting the programme one has to renew the searches again.

Very annoying, I have contacted the developer but get no reply. Until version 2 the developers support was excellent and the programme worked very reliably. A great shame that there should be this deterioration in what was a great programme.

I am suing Snow Leopard 10.6.4

Very disappointing "upgrade". The position of the center bar is not remembered and has to be adjusted every time you launch the application. Scrolling through entries does not work - there may be, say, 50 auctions found but GarageBuy doesn't always show the scroll bar so you can't see them all. Regularly freezes, crashes then re-shows all of the auctions you had hidden. Stick with the old version as this one is unusable in its current form.

version 2 is a bug nest for me, listing and redraw problems. I have to restart quite often.

I've contacted the dev without any answer nor bugfix.

It's a shame because it's a very good soft.
