    Loved this app on my iPhone, very sad to not see android support.

  • Michael says:

    Sorry Chris, the iOS apps keep me more than busy enough.

    This app is absolutely essential for traders, collectors, and the like. The fact that you can save values and access offline is a huge plus. I use the app on my IPad with a keyboard and it works great for pricing out collections fast.

    For 5+ dollars it is very much worth it.

    What I love:
    Stores previous trades and shows you present value and value at the time the trade happend.
    Offline caching for card value, text, photos.
    tcg pricing.

    what it needs:
    A feature to add your own custom list. (my collection)
    A feature to export as a csv or txt to be later opened in excel etc.
    The ability to choose high,low,med from tcg for trade values.

    What would be nice but not necessary:
    Price tracking data? Past year prices like on mtg goldfish? Not essential but would be awsome.

    Hi Matthew,

    Thanks for your comments.

    I am considering collection management, but this requires some more thought.

    I will also consider some export. I’ll probably look at which trading websites this makes sense with.

    The app used to have the ability to select either high, med or low as your default for trades. When TCGplayer added foils to their API they deprecated the high and low prices, so for foils and possibly normal cards in the future we can only use med, which is why the option disappeared and probably won’t return.

    I’m actively working on price tracking data. I have data for over 12 months. This is coming!

  • Dave says:

    Still loving the app – but it looks like the price-at-trade gets updated at random times. Consequently the trades all seem to follow the current value rather than the (usually about 0) difference at the time of trade.

  • Dave says:

    Ah – sorry. Didn’t see there’s an option to toggle the current and at-time trade value. Ignore me and keep up the good work!

  • Chris says:

    Really REALLY need a TCG Low addition to the trade matrix, this feature alone I would pay 20.00 for, I like being able to use the mid but mid does not accurately always represent cards properly for trading.

  • Michael says:

    An earlier version of the app actually had a settings option to use low prices. The reason I took this away is that the TCGplayer API doesn’t support low prices for foil cards and promos. This is also the reason that you can’t currently see cheapest sellers for foil cards.

    I actually have permission from TCGplayer to get these prices via a different method, and I just now implemented cheapest sellers for foil cards for next version.

    To add low prices for foil cards I will need to change my code to get and store this from the cheapest sellers and do this for all cards daily, so I can provide low prices for all cards as part of my complete prices updates. I’lll do this soon.

    If you’re happy the changes and want to send me some money via Paypal gift or something as thanks, that would definitely be appreciated. :-)

  • Andrew says:

    One more request for a “TCGplayer Low” option on the trade section. Aside from that, this app is extremely well done and exactaly what I was looking for. Keep up the great work!

  • Harrison says:

    Can you use iTunes money to purchase cards with this app?

  • Michael says:

    Andrew, TCGplayer low will be added in an update. I had to work around the fact their API doesn’t provide ‘low’ prices for foils.

  • Michael says:

    Harrison, Sorry, no.
