Let AppWatch track apps on Google play by notifying you when the app goes on sale or is updated. Simply add an app to AppWatch and forget it! AppWatch will check the market at the interval you set (in the background) and notify you when something changes.
Apps on Sale now show original price
New option to easily add installed apps (Great for getting update notifications)
Non-US currency support
Example of Use:
Does Google automatically update your installed apps and now you have no idea what's changed? Easily add installed apps to your watch list so you can get notifications when there's updates.
Waiting for an app to support your device? Instead of continuously checking the market for updates, let AppWatch do it for you!
Have your eye on an app but waiting for new features before you install it? (Since it's not installed, you have to keep checking the market yourself.) Now let AppWatch do it for you!
Do you check the market every day hoping that app went on sale? (Then end up forgetting..) Don’t miss a potential sale, just let AppWatch do it for you!
Already finished a game and uninstalled it, but the author promises new levels? Now you don't have to keep checking for updates, AppWatch will do it for you!
Thanks for all the comments and suggestions! Unfortunately, AppWatch is still using the MarketAPI (Open Source) Library for obtaining the data, which is causing the two main problems users are experiencing: Price Information and Missing Apps. It appears apps that use a Trade Mark symbol are not returned in the search results, so they cannot be added. The second problem is with non-US currencies, which I have hopefully fixed.
If anyone knows of an alternative source for the data, please let me know.
If anyone can verify non-US currency is working (showing sale prices) or not, I would appreciate it. If anyone is interested in being a Beta Tester for the next release, send me an email.
The most requested feature not yet added is an option for backing up and restoring the watch list.
Want to see AppWatch in your local language? Send me an email if you want to translate the strings. (There really aren't that many.)
Thanks to Daniel E. for beta testing this release! It's very much appreciated!
Note on permissions:
The permissions are based on the Open Source Market API library for Google Play. The Google Service READ permission is used rather than asking the user for their Google Play account and password.
