I’m pleased to announce a new version of the Auctiva.com iOS app. It is free to all Auctiva.com users, and well worth your time if you have yet to check it out.
Our goal is to give you quick, on-the-go access to common tasks you’d do at Auctiva.com, like post a saved listing, check your messages or upload a photo. With our app, you can. In fact, using your device’s camera, you can take a photo and upload it to your Auctiva account all in one app. No hassles and no cables required!
What’s new with 1.1.0?
We’ve squished a few bugs in this update. Thanks to your feedback, we were able to track down an issue with image uploads that some of you were having, a handful of iOS5 compatibility issues and a few other potential problems we spotted.
Developing mobile apps presents some unique challenges unlike those of Auctiva.com: to provide the features you’ve come to love and expect, while fitting them into a small-screen device and maintaining a visually attractive, easy to use, intuitive presentation.
Auctiva.com is a robust service with a history of more than 10 years of adding and refining features. We feel it’s important to introduce features that make sense in a mobile app, while maintaining that ease of use.
Tell us what you think
We’d love to hear your feedback about how we’re doing and what features are most important to you. Please leave us an app store review, or revise your review if this update fixed problems you were having.
I’d also like to remind you to file a Customer Support case if you have questions or run into issues with our app. While we love to see reviews—especially good ones—we can’t respond to each, individually. Opening a support case ensures that your question gets in front of us so that we can help.
And please take the time to complete our survey to help us plan the next update for our app. Your input will help us choose what we add next!
