Remote Auction House for W.O.W

I thought hard for a moment as to whether or not I was going to post about this new application. While it does pertain to gaming and Android, it isn’t exactly gaming ON Android which is usually what we try to stick to. Blizzard just released their Remote Auction House application for Android devices which allows you to view, bid and more on auctions houses your characters access.

As anyone who has played World of Warcraft knows, one of the most irritating things is when you are bidding on an auction and you get outbid and you can’t sniper the auction because you aren’t at your computer. Well this will solve that little issue as you will be able to access any auction house on any of your characters at any time. There is a catch though…

The free version lets you browse the auction house, view your auctions, view items you can sell in your bags/mailbox/bank, bidding status, expired auctions and so on. What the free version doesn’t let you do is basically anything important. For that you’ll need to sign-up for the subscription which will run you $2.99USD per month (on top of the money you are already spending monthly just to play the game). With the subscription you can bid on auctions, collect gold from successful/unsuccessful auctions, buy out auctions, cancel auctions…basically everything you’d actually want to do with this application.

The hardcore gamers will want to grab this pretty much right away while the casual gamer probably won’t find any real use for this application aside from checking your auctions (which becomes a horrible habit anyways..why not go mobile with it?). The interface looks pretty well done, so it’s not like they just threw this application together to try to make another easy few million dollars.

You can check out the full details over at the official site for Remote Auction House. Even though I don’t play World of Warcraft anymore, I would like to have seen this as a strictly free service instead of tacking on another $2.99 per month.
