Mobile Auction Site and Real Product Reseach Looks like HRO made the Auction available on the APP real time. Now I don't need to be at home or in front of my computer to bid on an Auction. I also can get driving directions with a single click - way cool.. Way to go HRO staying on top. Hope too soon see this on Apple someday. First useable app for researching product specs too.
Love the store, app is only so so Ham Radio Outlet is my go-to place for all things radio, and their mobile website is quite good. Unfortunately the app is not. It's really hard to navigate and virtually impossible to find stuff unless you know exactly what you're looking for. Use the mobile website instead.
Back Button Placement of back button is something to be desired. For Android it's intuitive to use the native back button. HRO app developer chose to make a back button in app, but it hides when you scroll down the page. I forget it's there and end up using the native back button which takes me to the opening screen of the app. Very frustrating.
Nice idea in theory... Am unable to use any of the options after it fires up on my rezound. After I make my selection, I get a flash of the proper screen before it disappears and I'm left looking at the background. Won't even start up on my cm7 nook tablet. From what I saw on my rezound, a catalog browser option would be a nice idea to incorporate. 73.
Leaves a little to be desired. It needs just a little more to be great. There needs to be a "search by category." Also, sort by price would help. Like the website, you can't see a price until you open the page for the specific item you are looking at. If I could put in my "Home store," the app could automatically tell me if products are in stock at my local HRO. It seems like I have to drill down to each item that I want to see. This app makes it very difficult to compare similar items based on features, price, etc.
Not sure what the point of this is. Thought I may be able to keep a running wish list or something. Back button takes you back to home from the details of a product search. Annoying. W4JPS
