Mobile Armory AH Update - Saving Time!

The Mobile Armory App just updated last night with some interesting feature additions to the Auction House. Both being major time savers. (Time is Money, friend.)

Setting Undercut Values

When posting from the Mobile Armory App, you can now set it to automatically adjust your Buyout price to whatever amount you wish to undercut the lowest poster. This can save a ton of time instead of tapping values for each and every items Bid and Buyout prices.

Mass Buyouts

Let me start out by saying this feature can be a major game changer. The Mobile AH now shows how many like-priced auctions are up and puts them in a single group, much like Auctionator's Buy tab. When you tap/click on one of these groups you'll find that the next window allows you to purchase the maximum amount of stacks being sold at the same price. With one touch of the 'Buy' button (assuming you're already logged in and authenticated) the app begins to purchase each of the auctions!

But, what does this mean? 

Now you have a choice to either be in game spam clicking Auctionator when buying massive quantities of items or log out for a moment and purchase it all with a single touch. This is a major benefit for auctioneers who keep on eye on markets while working or busy.

One thing to keep in mind when using this new feature is the cap on Purchasing and Posting from the Mobile Auction House. (That's cap is still in, right? :(  )  I can foresee many of us reaching that cap regularly thanks to the overall convenience of buying so much at once.

If the Mobile App is getting this treatment, which rivals if not surpasses in-game addons, it may mean that the in-game AH might have another overhaul in the purchasing department. I welcome an Auctionator style of functionality coming to the default AH UI.

What do you guys think of this new feature?
Any ideas on how we could further take advantage of it?

Thanks for reading! :)
