Introducing DiabloAH - Diablo 3 Auction House Companion App

  • #1
    Hi guys,

    Having had some success on Reddit, D3DB, and Giantbomb, I thought I would clue my favorite Diablo Newsite in on a mobile web app I developed called DiabloAH.

    Tired of Diablo 3's Auction House lacking some key features, I decided to create an app that mimics one of my favorite addons from WoW (specifically Auctioneer) optimized for mobile devices.

    Because there is no API for the Auction House, it does require you to provide some specific details about an item, but, once complete, offers rich features like Comparison Stats, Bid/Buyout Suggestions, and Market Research (a neat feature that compares your item against all other successful sales to determine it's worth).

    Today, DiabloAH is much more powerful than the Excel Spreadsheet it began as and has helped me sell over 100 items and make a little under 2.1 million gold (and 4 dollars!) on the AH. And, as of this writing, is being used by hundreds of other players (little over 900).

    I do want to mention that this isn't a scam or anything like that. I'm hosting the app on my own dime. It does ask for a username and password, but I don't do anything with them.

    It's compatible with any web browser but optimized for the mobile experience (phones and tablets).

    Please DO NOT use your BNET Account information. This app is standalone and does not connect to Blizzard's Servers.

    ---------------

    More details about the app (as well as screenshots) can be found on it's "About" page:
    About DiabloAH

    Recent updates can be found on the "Latest Updates" page:
    Latest Updates

    And, you are also welcome to read the reddit where I first announced the app by visiting:
    Introducing DiabloAH (reddit)

    ---------------

    I'll gladly answer any questions you might have about the app on here as well. I make little applications like this all the time, but I generally keep them private. This is the first one I sunk a large amount of time into and I wanted to share it. Not to mention, the more users it has, the better it becomes.

    Tonight, I pushed Level 7 to the servers which added some advanced features like bogus, invalid data filtering and Bid-Only Auction support.

    It's a web app made using jQuery Mobile. Should work on just about any mobile browser you throw at it.

    Not really necessary. It's just a website, you can open it right now on your PC. It's optimized for the mobile experience because I originally created it for my iPad. Plenty of people open it in Chrome on a separate monitor or laptop :)

    I just tried on both desktop and mobile(Galaxy s2 ICS) and functions great! Gonna take a deeper dig later on when I have more time, but it looks cool :)

    What differences will we see with release of the API?

    Hah, practically a completely different app?

    It's a pipe dream right now, but an API (or even the surfacing of the Auction House data through a web page) would enable all kinds of pretty amazing features - not having to input each individual item, tracking market trends would be significantly easier, access to all sales instead of just those recorded in the app... I would definitely make use of something like that.

    But, given Blizzard's history and the nature of the AH, I think we would sooner see an official "Diablo 3 Auction House" paid-for app like the WoW one before we see an API.

    Not a problem. Hopefully you'll find a way to fit it into your Auction House routine.

    I can't open the Auction House these days without pulling up DiabloAH on my iPad first (but I'm a bit biased).
