SurfyBay for eBay

SurfyBay for eBay

 

Description

Want to be alerted BEFORE the end of an important eBay listing the easy way? With one touch, SurfyBay automatically sets an "Event" in your device's built in Calendar App of the eBay listing you are currently looking at, an event which includes Alerts with timing of your choosing to remind you of the coming end of that eBay listing. Never miss a listing that you want to bid on, and more importantly never reveal what price you are willing to pay on a listing until the last few seconds of that listing.

If you have iCal Syncing set up, your new iCal events will also sync to your MobileMe and desktop iCal for seamless alerts automatically.

A link back to the listing is saved with your alerts, so when an alert appears, simply touch on "view" and you'll see a link to the listing for immediate action.

note: ( SurfyBay has added support for some non USA eBay sites, see "what's new" to find out if your country is supported, email requests through support for any other countries)

Instructions on using SurfyBay:

1. Before setting eBay listing alerts, touch on the "Setup Prefs" pane and set the number of alerts, and the time increments that you want an alarm to go off before the end of any given listing.

2. Your preferences are saved between each use of SurfyBay, so setting preferences need only be done one time if you wish, but can be changed for each listing too.

3. Navigate to any eBay listing that has an "end time" which you wish to be alerted to, and touch on "Add to iCal". This adds an Event to your device's iCal with your saved preferences of alerts, and you are finished.

Some Details on using SurfyBay:

If you have iCal Syncing set up, your new iCal events will also sync to your MobileMe and desktop iCal for seamless alerts.

When an Alert goes off, you are presented with a pop up and an alert sound.

If you touch on “View Event” on this Alert, you will see the name of the listing, the amount of time left before the listing ends, and a link to the listing itself for immediate action if you wish.

You can add a bookmark of an ebay search or website by touching the “+” on the main panel of SurfyBay. To see your bookmarks, touch the book symbol on the main panel of SurfyBay. To edit your bookmarks touch the “edit” button on the BookMarks panel. You can also rearrange bookmarks and delete them with the edit button too.

Additional info on using SurfyBay:

A) If you want 3 more alarms for the same listing, touch on "Setup Prefs" again, set your alarms to different times, then return to your main panel (which has the listing you are looking at) and touch "Add to iCal" again, and so on.

B) If you are in Safari and are at an eBay listing you wish to set alerts to, simply touch on the address bar of Safari once, then a second time to bring up "Select All" select all of the address to copy, copy it, then push the home button and bring up SurfyBay instead, again select all the address bar, a paste will appear, paste the copied address into the SurfyBay address bar, after the webpage loads, touch "Add to iCal" and you are finished. Be sure to be in the "classic" version of ebay, rather than the mobile version.

C) The new iCal event on your device's Calendar App will only show 2 alerts at a time, even so, all 3 alerts are saved correctly. (syncing, and then viewing the alerts on your desktop iCal will show all 3 alerts) Your desktop iCal event alarms that are synced from your new iCal events do not have sounds set, you must set those yourself on the desktop event.

D) Events are created in what ever your default Calendar is in your iCal App, changing your default calendar will set future events to that new default.
