An adequate mobile companion to the desktop version

Cost: Free | Developer: eBay Inc. | Platform: Windows Phone 7 | Version: | 2 MB |

Unless you have been living under a rock for the last decade, you will know about the eBay online auction site.

You will also know that the time sensitive nature of online auctions means that you have to keep a close eye on items you are watching or selling just before the auction ends.

The eBay app allows you to get away from your desktop PC and search, bid, and check your auction activity while on the move.

As with a lot of Windows Phone applications, it has been designed to take advantage of the Metro interface and navigation between different auctions is a breeze.

While the layout is a bit different to what a long term user may be used to with the desktop version and may take some time to get used to, you’ll eventually get used to the convenience of accessing auctions while on the go.

Pros: Quick access to your eBay auctions.

Cons: The app does not allow for selling of items.

Verdict: An adequate mobile companion to the desktop version of eBay.
