eBay Mobile: There's An App For That!

A few months ago when I was hanging out at the eBay offices in California, I discovered something that was (kinda) life-changing for this eBay buyer -- the eBay iPhone Mobile App! It's a really convenient way for folks to enjoy their eBay experience on-the-go.

The eBay for iPhone app helps users check on and watch for items and auctions at anytime. (I had my eye on a pair of Jessica Simpson peep-toe color-blocked shoes. Love them!)

If you're a buyer, the eBay iPhone app lets you know when/if someone outbids you, or if your auction is ending. Also, you can use the app to compare in-store prices with eBay prices by using the bar code scanner, which'll save you money. Oh, and let's not forget the convenience of paying for items from your phone.

If you're a seller, you can check out sales trends, list items, and make sales, all from your phone. If you wanted to pre-populate your listing, you can do so by using the bar code scanner as well.

eBay iPhone app extras: The app includes Daily Deals, Reminders, My eBay, amongst others. There is also eBay Half.com, Fashion (my love!), Classifieds, and Motors. Pretty inclusive, no?

Now, I realize that not everyone is "Team iPhone," so here are the nuts and bolts for eBay Android app users:

If you're a buyer, you can receive alerts if/when someone outbids you, as well as when your watched items or auctions are ending. If you create favorites, you'll receive alerts when new items are listed that matches your favorites. One feature that I like is that you can use the voice-enabled search to find what you're looking for without typing. 

If you're a seller, just as with the iPhone app, you can research sales trends, list items, and make sales. You'll also be able to pre-populate your listing.

eBay Droid app extras: Classifieds, Red Laser, and eBay Half.com.
