The real Wolfman ,

Bottom line: it serves the purpose

So there’s something you really want to find but can’t sit in front of your browser all day long. BayWatch will find it. It’s simple and allows you to utilize all of eBay’s filters to narrow your search. Done.
What a thrill it is to hear that little “ping” and see what the app has found! Just wish it would tell you in the notification but currently you have to open the app to see which search produced results. To determine it, you must search (and squint) for a tiny little red number within your list, so the interface is not quite as user friendly as it could be. Also, you can’t select the notification sound, which tends to be the same one a LOT of other apps use, so sometimes you’ll get a feeling of false alarm.
Perhaps the most helpful feature that’s missing is you can’t label your searches. Instead, the app simply lists your search word(s), so if you’re searching, for example, for several different parts by a cryptic model number, you have to remember what goes to what without an opportunity to notate.
Overall though, the app is the best I’ve found for the purpose!

Developer Response ,

Thank you for taking the time to leave your thoughtful review. I am really delighted to hear that BayWatch helps you so much.
On the aspect of looking for new items and looking for the red number, are you aware that the left of the search in the table highlights in red too? Also, if you look in Settings at the top, there is an option 'Show new items first (watches)'. If you select this, then any watches with new items will show at the top of your list. Hopefully these two affordances will help.
Feel free to reach out to me at and mention this review I will be happy to discuss further.
Thanks again.

Contact Support Button Does not Work. How to backup?

Update: I was able to contact support through their general email address. They replied speedily. I was told that although they don’t have an in app backup option all of my app data should be backed up and preserved as long as I have the app set to backup with my iOS iCloud backup. Also the contact support button only works if you have the iOS mail app setup with an email account. Because I’ve bypasses the iOS mail app entirely that is why the contact support button doesn’t work for me. Excellent support service and still enjoying the app!

I am really enjoying this app and love all of the specific search details it allows you to input. I’m paying for the premium service for 15 min searches. Totally worth it. However, I’m trying to find a way to backup my searches so I don’t end up losing them if I lose my phone or need to reinstall app. I have nearly a hundred searches and losing them would be devastating due to the amount of time and research I’ve put in them for my business. When trying to contact support within app I click the button in the settings but it does nothing. Not sure how to get in touch with support to find out if it is possible to backup searches.

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...

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) Thanks again.
