RIM and eBay have launched a beta version of the official eBay app for BlackBerry. The app was discussed back at the BlackBerry Developer Conference, and is now available for you to try.
The eBay app gives you the ability to buy, pay, and check ebay activity from your BlackBerry. The coolest part of this app is that it pushes status notifications of eBay listings in real-time, to let you know if you’ve won a bid, you’re being outbid, or a listing on your Watch List is ending soon.
Other features include:
- Add to Calendar – Users can add the end time and reminders for auctions to their calendar.
- Payments – Users with a PayPal account can purchase directly through the application.
- Search by Location – Buyers can specify their search for items up to 1,200 miles from their home location.
The eBay app is available in App World.
