How about a alarm Sat Apr 07, 2012 01:42 AM Quote

I searched forums but havent seen a suggestion to include a adjustable alarm setting.
That way your Droid lets you know the auction is ending in either 30, 20 or 10 minutes.
So if your snipe bid has been beaten previously, instead of going through it all over again and the price keeps on going up between you and another bidder, you can reset your bid much closer to the end. Can't be too hard to program and will save us a lot of money and give us a huge snipe advantage.

Hello Jerry,

Thanks for your suggestion.
Not sure why you need such alarm if the official eBay app has it.
Also, using this alarm will defeat the whole purpose of sniping not being emotionally involved into bidding wars -- if you want to increase your snipe based on somebody else bids, you are getting into risk of overpaying.

If someone else bid higher than you, let them overpay. If you still think you could be bidding higher, that means your absolute maximum for the snipe amount was not really your absolute maximum.
Please make sure you set your absolute maximum (and a few cents more just in case) when setting up the snipe. If you do, you would never need an alarm for it.
