APP WATCH: Enhanced eBay BlackBerry app hits UK

First seen in North America earlier this year, the enhanced BlackBerry eBay app has now launched in the UK.

It offers pretty much everything you would want of it, except maybe bidding for something on your behalf when you are otherwise engaged. Although with the app working so closely with your BlackBerry, you'll be fully clued up wherever you are, as long as you have your smartphone to hand.

Available for anyone using BlackBerry OS 4.5 and above, the app offers all the eBay basics of browsing, searching and bidding, but also keeps track of your buying and selling activity without having to go near a PC.

It's also very BlackBerry compatible, with push notifications to your inbox when you've won an item or been outbid, as well as when a watched item is close to ending. It also works with your BlackBerry calendar and gives you the option to pay for something via PayPal using your handset.

'We are thrilled to be extending eBay’s mobile presence to millions of BlackBerry smartphone users around the globe', said Steve Yankovich, VP of platform business solutions and mobile at eBay.

'When developing any mobile application, we take into account the unique features and advantages of the device to better meet our customers’ needs. With BlackBerry’s Push Service and multi-tasking technology, eBay buyers and sellers are able to stay up-to-date on great deals and sales'.
