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!

Sorry about this! We've sorted the search issue – you shouldn't have any problems with that now. If you come across any other errors, let us know at ^AB

Can you add an option to disable the UILongPressGestureRecognizer on UICollectionViewCell/UITableViewCell’s in the search results please. It’s frustrating having the share menu pop up all the time.

The action for scrolling the search results is; put thumb on screen, move thumb up. The action for sharing is; put thumb on screen for 500ms, move thumb up. Can you see how these actions are too similar and could cause problems? Maybe increase the ‘minimumPressDuration’ property of the gesture recognizer to 1 second.

The App is really well designed, but I feel like that particular part was designed by the UX intern.

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.
