    Ebay say they have an 'official' ebay app out available on the Market. Currently using PKD (which is okay for looking at items, but not great for looking at items you are selling)

    I can't find the app on the Market at all..

    I tried:


    But it still doesn't find it - has ebay taken it down for some reason? :thinking:

    I haven't installed it, but it's there on the market. Maybe it's not listed in your location?

    I'm in the UK if that helps

    * Sorry, got it mixed up with Google's Shopping app. My apologies!

    It must have been pulled already eBay on Android

    I use the PKD one at the moment which seems pretty good.

    It's not available in the UK - should state it on the ebay site, least it used to.

    At this moment the eBay for Android app is only available in the US. It will be available in the UK by the end of June when version 1.1 comes out.

    thanks,
    david beach PM for eBay Mobile.

    Thanks David.

    Seems strange that there should be any regional problems with the way eBay works.

    Will there be a feedback page for the app? Will it rely on Market comments?

    Actually comparing eBay Mobile v1 to pkt eBay, the eBay version has some work to do. On the same phone, same network pkt eBay is returning results in almost half the time, has a quick link to completed listings and the price check with average prices etc.

    eBay mobile has the feedback page though which is quite important but it could really do with the option to view the neg feedback.

    Thanks for replying and confirming on here David.

    Will wait for the official one to be released for the UK market.

    What I'm wondering about this is the point of it ?

    I can navigate to the ebay webpage and carry out the same activities that I would on my desktop PC.

    The only thing I can think is that the app may be quicker.

    What are the other benefits ?

    Exactly that really bud. It would be a lot faster to see how many items are selling / how much for in two clicks than, open browser, navigate to ebay, login, click summary etc.

    Plus a dedicated app will be the 'light' version so will be just quicker in general with less to load.

    If you just want a quick look at the summary page rather than 'browsing', a dedicated app is needed. Otherwise if you're not in a rush and sitting down, full on browsing from Dolphin HD or the standard browser is great. ;)

    I'm using Pkt Auction and it seems pretty good. Has a nifty barcode scanner function and the interface is pretty user friendly.

    I like Pkt Auction as well. Don't see a need for anything more.

    Since posting this I have been using Pkt Auction and while I like its simplicity and ease of use, it lacks features that would make it a killer app.
