Wishing ...

Wishing every time you update that the search function not lose its ability to complete refined searches including clothing sizes, but yet again I’m disappointed. This really frustrates me and has happened yet again with this latest update. I save searches for a reason, but they simply don’t work after each update.

Review updated to 5 star after quick response from TM to resolve the issue. Great work team!

Trademe would be even more useful of a wishlist feature was included. Wishlist would list what you’re wanting from personal Searches the feature would be like watchlist except the wishlist are not items you are watching until you are ready to add on to watchlist to join the auction or going to Buy Now. Wishlist feature would be accessible from the same place as Favourites.

Good but still missing simple things found on website

I mostly use the app, and it agents better with every release. I wish it shows times and dates for auctions though, watch list doesn't show the time auction ends and when I have 10 things finishing in a day I seriously don’t want to need to figure out when 21 hours time is!
