Just needs slightly better filtering options

I've used WR for years via the web, and having an app for it is great, I just wish it had more filtering options like the website.

This app is terrible. I've had it a week and it's already cost me thousands of dollars in watches I probably would not have found had I not had this app. The developer did an amazing job, seriously. Really well done and slick the way that the photos, location, make and model and price are parsed out. I never review apps but I just had to review this one to provide feedback to the developer. To make this app even better, a couple things.

1) have the option to parse the text from the sales post into the quick view screen as this often includes descriptive details. I would rather not have to load up the full view of the webpage with all the ads and stuff every time I want more information on a sale.

2) add ability for more quick search/alerts.

3) push badge and banner notifications instead of having to load the app to see notifications.

4) if possible be able to load the full size images so again, I don't need to open the full view to zoom in and see more detail.

5) index sales posts from further back in time. Right now it appears to only go back to January or early February. Often need to search further back to look for rarer items or to price compare a sales price.

I would gladly pay $2-5 for this app if even half of these recommendations were implemented. Great job!

Not great

The app provides a basic snapshot of watches, but you usually need to visit the actual website where the watch is listed to see pertinent information, and that is where this app fails. Rather than just linking you to the site, the app seems to be doing something in the middle because loading any outside webpage in “Full View” from the app causes a LONG pause or a crash before you actually get to the page where the watch is listed. It’s very noticeable and not something you would experience if you just clicked a normal link to a website. Something needs to be fixed here.
