Why Not Have This Running??
I’ve found this to be very helpful. But I’ve learned that you MUST have a few separate “watches” going, using different sets of keywords for the same item you’re looking for... At least for me it’s really helped to yield a lot more reliable results, and I figured this out by noticing that when I entered a bunch of keywords into a “watch” for an item, when I reviewed the results that already existed on EBay, there were listings missing that I knew were active at that moment, and for the same item I was trying to lookout for. So I removed some keywords and added others into a new “watch”, and then I saw the missing listings show up in this app. So now I just have like three or four different “watches” going at the same time for the same item I’m looking for, just using a variety of keywords, and now I seem to get notified just about every time the item I’m looking for gets listed. Also, for some reason I can’t see what I’m typing right now, so please excuse what are probably many errors...
Developer Response ,
Thank you for taking the time to leave your kind review. I am glad that BayWatch is helping you find the items you want. On the keywords aspect, if you add multiple keywords, then by default, all must exist in the title (unless you elect the entire listing). You may want to take a look here at the advanced search operators (which are eBay's operators) https://www.progressconcepts.com/help/baywatch/#ffs-tabbed-19. Thanks again.
Love this app, so much better than official eBay app
If you follow a ton of saved searches, do yourself a favor and give BayWatch a try.
The saved searched are easily configured in a single screen that has the most important options when you buy often (local only, price range, excluded word filter, etc.), and it informs you within minutes of new listings.
You can then either delete found items so you don’t have to review over and over again, or watch them.
While the app could use some more visual polish I found it very stable and working great; already found a bunch of great deals with newly listed items.
The monthly fees for are definitely worth it if you are more than an occasional eBay buyer or if you’re looking for a great deal for a specific item that’s normally pricey.
I have written in to the developer and they were responsive and friendly. Hope some features in the future include iCloud sync so you can browse the same stuff on multiple devices as well as small tweaks to the UI, like a “delete all” for search results.

Thanks for taking the time to leave a nice and objective review. I will be looking at your ideas for a future version of BayWatch. As for the polish, hopefully I can address that too in the next major update that I have planned. Thanks once again.
Works as intended
It will notify you within 15 minutes. Could be seconds after something is listed or 14 minutes. So it is a major improvement over anything eBay offers. Still hard to beat out eBay snipers, but it does help. On another note, the developer is very responsive and open to suggestions, which is very nice.

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review, your update, and your kind words. Checks for each search being carried out every 15 minutes (on rapid discovery) and 3 hours otherwise. As for instances where you may see older items, this can be due to re-listing, or eBay server replication. As you say though, if there are lots of people searching for your desired items, then they may get there first. If you would like support, or have ideas for the future version, please reach out to me via the support option in the app (Settings screen) or via email firstname.lastname@example.org and mention this review. Thanks again.
