GarageBuy 1.5 displays item specifics

Tuesday, September 2nd, 2008

We just released GarageBuy 1.5, an important update to our software for finding and purchasing eBay items from your Mac.

This new release downloads and displays item specifics (a.k.a item attributes) even when the application is configured to not show the item webpage. Combined with “image scrubbing” in image view mode (see animation below) you can find exactly what you are looking for even more quickly.

GarageBuy Touch users on the iPhone will be pleased to hear that GarageBuy 1.5 learned to move watched auctions to the user’s ‘My eBay’ from where GarageBuy Touch on the iPhone can pick them up.

If you find it too time consuming to stay on top of your eBay searches, give GarageBuy a try. It’s a free download.

GarageBuy 1.3 is out

Thursday, January 17th, 2008

GarageBuy’s latest incarnation allows you to restrict your eBay search to a certain price range. We also tried to squeeze out a little more performance, so your search results are appearing sooner.

We’d love to demonstrate GarageBuy 1.3 to you in person, so if you are in San Francisco be sure to drop by our MacWorld booth S-2544.

More information can be found on the GarageBuy homepage.

If you like to see what other GarageBuy users have to say, please take a look at this review (and nope, we really didn’t pay this guy).

GarageBuy 1.2 Released

Wednesday, December 19th, 2007

GarageBuy (our free application for searching and buying stuff on eBay) has been updated to version 1.2.
We are now using a different way to retrieve simple search results from eBay. This change not only makes searching faster, it also removes the need to authorize GarageBuy for your eBay account. For more sophisticated searches and for bidding on items you still need to authorize GarageBuy, though.

GarageBuy now also supports proximity searches around your ZIP code and lets send auctions to your friends by e-mail easily.

More information can be found on the GarageBuy page.
