    Auction House Monitor - Free Auction House Notifications

    Hey guys! I just finished making and thought you guys would like to help me test it a bit before I officially release it!



    Description
    Auction House Monitor is a brand new service which provides you with auction house notifications. You can monitor the price of items you wish to buy as well as the undercuts on your active auctions.

    Features
    • Buy & Bid Price Alerts
    • Undercut Alerts
    • Get Alerts via Email,Text Message or PC
    • Run without WoW Client
    • Easy to Use


    How to
    Fill out the settings for the Character/Server you want to monitor. If you don't want to check undercuts you can leave the character field blank.



    To monitor an items price and receive an alert whenever this item goes below a threshold simply go to "Watch List" and click the add button. Set the item name and price. Make sure you spell everything correctly or you might get an error.



    That's it! Press play and you should start receiving hourly notifications of your finds and undercuts.



    Beta Info
    Since this is a beta test please report any and all bugs you come across! Also, let me know your suggestions and I will see if I can implement them! To report a bug or give me a suggestion either leave a comment in this thread or send me a PM.

    Requirements
    Windows XP/Vista/7 , .NET Framework 4

    Download

    This is very nice! Good job, +rep.

    Where does the pricing data come from?

    Also, as you can imagine, many users will be hesitant to use this until a due diligence check is made. Entirely optional, but you may want to find someone who understands the source code.

    Auction House Bot finally goes down after a Blizzard C&D, so you move on to Auction House Monitor. Maybe this new project will stay on their good side?

    I see you also use my itemlist.xml without any credit or thanks. Would've been nice if you mentioned your source.

    I will definitely make sure to credit you. Keep in mind this is just a beta, still getting everything polished.

    Since the program doesn't require any credentials, I am not sure there is any need for worry. As Eronus said, I have release similar programs before..

    Keyloggers and programs that monitor traffic don't require credentials either. I'm not suggesting this program does or does not do either of these things; but just because a program doesn't ask you for credentials doesn't mean it's inherently safe.

    This is definitely an interesting idea, but I'd question your thought process behind thinking what Erorus said should make people less concerned.

    I am not going to release the source, but you guys can feel free to monitor the traffic with fiddler or other packet monitoring software if you don't feel safe. My point talking about eronous' comment was that I have had released many programs before and am trustworthy. Either way it's up to you want to use the program or not.

    I uploaded the program here because I found this forum helpful and useful for making money via the auction house. I thought people here would appreciate a free alternative to getting auction house notifications. If no one is interested I can always delete this thread.

    I've seen it posted on a couple of other forums (including typically shady forums where people are very suspicious) and no one has reported anything negative on it. 5/41 was the worst someone got on Virus Total but that place tends to find something suspicious in everything lol.
    If someone makes a helpful post or useful thread, be sure to let them know by giving +reputation. Spread the love!

    Am I missing something, or is this essentially a free(?) undermine journal in regards to the hourly notifications?
