Pushed Retrochecker v2 into Appstore review just now. Let's hope it will launch shortly. Hundreds of improvements. I think my app is the best retro collector app full stop. :-)
More info: @retrochecker Btw, it works OFFLINE and does NO tracking. You can even turn off image loading and other online features. Core functions still work in flight mode.

@Truck @retrochecker it’s my personal iOS App I wrote in 2018. https://apps.apple.com/us/app/retrochecker/id1441763581
After a very long time, I will finally be able to push a major @retrochecker update. Hundreds of improvements have been made. No tracking! All the basic functionality works offline. Hopefully launching in the next days!
followup - here is a (tracking free) copy of a 2020 forbes article elaborating on what happens when ebay scans your local / LAN ports.
#GDPR #DSGVO Sometimes i really wonder howto determine whether something is "legitimate interest" per the GDPR. E.g. if eBay cannot find a cookie on my machine, it ll use a service called threatmetrix to attempt a LAN scan (e.g. whats running on 127.0.0.1 and beyond) from within the browser. I only noticed because LittleSnitch alarmed about it. I cannot imagine that this could be a legitimate interest. Any clues how to determine if could successfully sue them?
@Truck I got a treadmill last year, too. Best investment ever. You can be on computer and move. I do it 5hr per day.
