- Almost every item can be found misspelled
- Bid on items that are found
* Turn pictures off if you are on a slow internet connection.

Fun & Funny!
I agree with an earlier review. It's really interesting to see how listings are spelled. Say for example you are searching for Coco Chanel Mademoiselle & would like a deal, even though it's written right there on the box/bottle & most devices have spell check these days, you're bound to find a great deal on the bottle nobody else can find; simply because the title of the listing says : Channel, madamoselle, or something. It's awesome! I've used this app for a long time & it's great! The developers are brilliant and could have kept this to themselves, but didn't! ---Thank you guys for my bargains & the entertainment value!
Paid 1.99 for the Pro version, but it didn't work
Sure, there are no ads with the pro version, but there aren't any pictures either, even with the picture tab switched on. I used to use this app to search for shoes, but what's the point if you have to click on every listing to see each shoe? If you like seeing a picture with a listing, skip this app. I find it to (currently) be completely useless.
Maybe there was a time when this app worked well. Fact is, the opportunities afforded by misspelled listings as it is are very few. This app does far worse a job than attempting these searches manually.
Waste of time, and this goes without saying: don't buy "Pro" as that is a waste of money as well.
