It's in development - I expect it will be released within a month. iPhone app will follow some time after that. Note that the app from this thread, developed by Karl Hudgell, is no longer functional. Also - I do not have the source code of it, it was entirely a third-party app, owned by Karl.

Is someone working on Android App ? Is it possible to have the sources to try to update existing app ?

I wouldn't mind trying my hand at the Android app. However, I would certainly like it to be fully sanctioned by Gixen etc. Let me know if there is any mutual interest

Is there still interest in someone making an android application? I'm a software engineer of about 15 years, I've done some Android development in that time. I used Gixen several years ago and was thoroughly impressed. It seems like it is still the best sniper out there.

Ramona, you are right. I am removing that link immediately from the home page.

Until there is a new app, android users can use the mobile site

I just followed the link to this app in the Google PlayStore, and then clicked on the link to the developer's website. This brought me to an 18+ erotic site (I didn't progress any further!)

As the app is > 2 years old, the word "New" on the Gixen front page seems to be a bit outdated ... and as the app no longer seems to be supported (and, according to the feedback in the PlayStore, doesn't work very well), perhaps the decision to link to it from the Gixen web site should be reviewed?

This app appears to be no longer supported by the dev. There have been no updates in the play store since 4/22/2013. Most functions in the app are faulty. It should be removed from the front page of gixen.

Having some difficulty with the Android app, in 4.3-4.4. The button on the lower right, to add a new item (after everything is entered) is not formatted correctly on my screens (Nexus 7 2nd gen, Samsung Galaxy S III, ASUS TF700t). The button is off the screen, to the right, and just the left side is visible (not functional). This is most pronounced when the auction id number is manually entered.

He says nothing.
I would deleted de app reference from the web if I were you. But I'm not, of course.

I emailed Karl, let's see what he says.

Please, mario, make a favor yourself deleting this app banner from Gixen front page.
The app doesn't work, and the autor doesn't answer o customers.
PostPosted: Fri Aug 23, 2013 9:29 pm    Post subject: The Android App?

So, what is the latest news on the app? Is Karl still on the case, making all kinds of improvements? Maybe I should just stay away from it for a while yet? I think it's a great idea and would be very handy to have.
I never learned coding for Android so I won't be able to volunteer to help with the app.
Anyway, Karl, if you are still out there, I give you credit. Sometimes these things can give you fits. If you could get a second set of eyes to look at it for you, it might be a real obvious fix that he/she could recommend.
PostPosted: Thu Aug 15, 2013 1:27 pm    Post subject: android app useless

Android app is worthless. Would give it 1 star if I were willing to join google plus, but I am not.

I can login. I can begin to add a snipe, am able to enter the item and top amount willing to bid. No way to then finish creating the snipe. No button to push next.

There is a button way off to the right of the screen that does not work. That is prob the button I want, but only a sliver of it shows on screen either portrait or landscape. Trying to hit the tiny part that is visible does nothing. Samsung s3 and note 2.

If I had not been interrupted during testing I would hace gotten a refund.

mario: Just 'Incorrect username or password' in red directly beneath the login box. Nothing special.

iPhone App: works with the same username password combination, so does directly and so of course does

Gixen4Droid: Does NOT work. Maybe it works with; you may need to work with the app developer to internationalize the app [whatever that is, assuming the API isn't somehow international already].. With a name like Karl Hudgell I assumed the guy was raised locally, and therefore designed the the app to work with no problem. Whoops! Probably an american Razz

mochooha, what do you see when you try to log in? I will forward the information to Karl.
PostPosted: Fri Aug 02, 2013 4:28 pm    Post subject: cannot login


been using gixen for several years.
purchased the iphone app and it worked well with (I know it's another app author, not karl)

Purchased Gixen4Droid and it doesn't work at all - I can't even so much as log-in. Of course I can use the same account on and, no problem there. Only the app is not working. I still have the iphone but loooaned (forum 'spam' word on correct spelling) it out, besides which that is another app author.

So my review is it doesn't work at all! Avoid avoid avoid!!!!!!!

No answer from Karl.
PostPosted: Fri May 31, 2013 7:39 am    Post subject:

Can you email the app author, Karl? This seems like a problem on his end.
PostPosted: Fri May 31, 2013 5:37 am    Post subject: Gixen4Droid problem


After adding some items from my watch list with the app, they show in, but Gixen4Droid gives an error when trying "List Snipes": "Bad argumens to select list item. The operation select list item cannot accept the arguments: *nothing* 1

Any clue to solve this?

Thank you.

Hi Guys,

Just an update.

I have just released an update for the app that fixes all the issues commented in the review, it is now possible, quick and easy to edit and delete a snipe on your snipe list, as well as add a new snipe from your ebay watch list (like Gixen main site).

So now all you need to do is have the item you want to add a snipe to, in your eBay watch list and you can easily add a new snipe to it.

Delete screen is now auto populated via your currently listed snipes, instead of having to enter manually (still possible).

The app is now much faster and easier than using the mobile web interface (as good as it is) on your android powered device, so head to the play store and check it out.


PostPosted: Mon Feb 18, 2013 3:02 am    Post subject:

Hi guys,

Please be aware that the app is still early in creation and that many changes and improvements are planned, so make this a must have for android-gixen users.

Hi Mario,

Thanks for posting this here for people to find out about the application..

Like Mario said, this is the first release, and has quite good functionality for that, though I do have more features planned for the future..

The price of the app is GBP 0.69p, and as stated all future updates are included.

If your download it, I hope you like it.

This android app has been discontinued.

Karl Hudgell informed me that he made the first Android App for Gixen (using Gixen XML API).

I tested it, and while it is clearly a first release with space for improvements (e.g. no watchlist import, display of items text only), I was delighted to see the first smartphone app for Gixen that actually works. Thank you Karl.

The app is available here: <Link removed>

Before purchasing the app note that you will need Gixen mirror subscription, or it will not work. The app uses Gixen API that requires mirror subscription. Keep in mind that this is a third-party app, and that all proceeds from the app purchases go to Karl. I will do my best to help if there are any issues, but I may not be able to help with all the support requests. I trust that Karl will be there to answer app-specific questions.

From what Karl told me, the price is around $1, and buyers are entitled to all the future updates. Please support his effort if you can.
