    "Scott just wants you to buy a bunch of stuff. If you don't want to buy anything, then the app is worthless. It's also poorly made."

    "Ebay can be great or terrible. It all depends on you! You have to do the research and pay attention to ratings in order to find a good and reliable seller. I have purchased lots of good items at great prices from ebay and it really helps you save money and time. The other day i found a product that i had no idea existed but that i needed very badly due to a medical situation."

    "Yes, you might be surprised that there are some of us out there who still collect stamps and coins...but we have gone digital. In fact, the Internet has made this hobby better than ever, with the ability to share tons of information about all the catalogs of items that are out there. And when I'm out looking for new additions to my collection, Smart Stamp collection is the app that I go to in the field. It helps me to identify and grade new stamps that I see, right there in the store or at the show. "

    "This app has bipartisan support, you either love it or hate it. I personally had a hard time using it and frequently had loading issues. The fees charged are also ridiculously high. The only saving grace is the variety of auction items one is able to find and the handheld format or the app, which one could frankly find in any other service these days."

    "I have a massive stamp collection and this made it really easy for me to identify the stamp's age. All I do is scan the stamp and it tells me everything I could ever want to know. It does have some recognition issues for very old stamps, however."

    "This is not an app specifically for collectors. it is a great way to bid on Ebay, but not for getting good deals for coins, stamps, and other collectibles."
