"Best ever version of a classic"
This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
There are two things that are brilliant about this application.
First, it's a fantastically useful way of finding what you want on ebay without looking at tonnes of other stuff (and, indeed, without having to float past all the scams and duds). I very rarely look at eBay by any other route than this application.
Second, the author keeps on updating it. There were other free utilities I used to use with eBay that were great for a while. But eBay keeps changing its specs, quite possibly to stop these utilities from working. AuctionSieve gets updated so often that it's never behind the times for more than a day.
This version is the best update ever -- as well as updating to keep up with eBay, the author has introduced time-saving features like multi-finding, and has generally upped the speed.
For those who are wondering how the author makes his money, it's by being part of the eBay affiliate program. This means that as long as people keep using AuctionSieve, he will keep earning, and, one assumes, will keep updating -- since he only earns if the program works. It's an extremely appropriate business model which doesn't cost the end user (ie, me) anything at all.
