eBay comes to BlackBerry


eBay App

BlackBerry owners need not go to eBay’s website to find great deals now that an app for the famous auction Web site is available.

Co-developed by eBay and RIM, the app is available for U.S. and Canada auctioneers. It allows users to search, watch, bid and buy items in eBay and even allows payments via PayPal.

In addition to letting users search and purchase stuff, the app also provides real-time home screen notifications to users of their bidding status such as when they’ve won or lost a bid.

Lastly, the app allows users to schedule auction-related reminders and email notifications for auction end dates in the native BlackBerry calendar, making it easier for users to remember when to bid or sit-out on an auction. J

System requirements for the eBay app include activation with data plan, Internet service browsing capabilities, BlackBerry smartphone with at least 64-MB of built in memory (with at least 100KB available) and BlackBerry® Device Software v4.5 or higher.

The app is available at the BlackBerry App World and can be downloaded for free.
