The initial release of 1.7.1 had an issue with adding and remove watched items. Version 1.7.1 fixes that issue. Thanks to everyone who contacted me to help me solve this issue!
Ratings and Reviews
I purchased this app in hopes to help me keep track of some of my watched items and alert me before auctions close, which it does, but I think it is missing some key features. Would like to view and browse through all current auction lots and select items to watch from there. Would like to see current price of watched items.
One issue that I am running into is that I am unable to search for some items that I see online.
Update 9/4/17 - As I mentioned before. There in an auction lot that I am watching online, but I am unable to search and locate items through the app. The entire auction is missing. So I can't use the app to track items...will have to resort to using the website.
Searching for items is so easy!
His app is great. Since. BidFTA doesn't have their own app this developer decided to conquer the task. He has done a great job and the app works so well. I always hated having to scroll through countless auctions trying to find items I wanted. Now all I I have to do is use the search feature on the app and find exactly what I'm looking for.
It's great also that the app developer regularly updates the app with new features and bug fixes.

The latest update seems to have brought stability. Now the app works as it should. You can set search locations and it keeps them. The biggest improvement is no more crashes! Moved from 2 to 4 stars.
Want to click on an item, it crashes. Want to save a search, crash. Want to view a saved item, crash. Good application in general as it fills a gap from the crappy bidfta website but it needs A LOT of work.

Hey Cincyjosh! Yah, the version you wrote this from crashed a lot. The most recent update fixed the majority of the crashes though! Happy Bidding :)
