Official eBay App Arrives for Android

The official eBay app for Android is now available in the Android Market. Created for Android 1.6 and above, it lets users do all the typical eBay stuff – search auctions, buy fun things, pay for purchases, check the items you’re selling, leave feedback, and set alerts. As of right now, the application is only available for the US market, but plans are in place to expand that shortly.

Here’s a lesser known fact – eBay is one of the founding 34 members of the Open Handset Alliance. Listed as a “software company”, I can’t figure out what it is they bring to the table. My only guess is that it has something to do with Skype somehow.

Look for the official eBay application in the Android Market today!

    seems so, once again 1.5 users left out in the cold staring in the shop window. Unless your rooted, seems we have to wait another month or so before they allow us in to shop.

    I have an HTC Droid Eris and can't find the official ebay app either. Is this only for the Motorolla Droid?
