We know what you’re thinking: Ebay? Really? Obviously readers of this site are familiar with the auction mega-site, even if you don’t use it on principal. Ebay’s selection as App of the Week has a lot to do with their use of new capabilities offered by the Mango update for Windows Phone. For those that are fans of both Windows Phone and Ebay (yes, all three of you), the Ebay app is a thing of beauty.
Being a client app for Ebay, you can make some assumptions regarding features you will find in the app. Auction listings can be searched and browsed, items can watched or bid on, and the app will allow you to configure notifications for when you are outbid or a watched item is ending. The best feature of the Ebay app is a new capability in Mango. Individual searches or bids can be pinned to your Start Screen for easy (and quick) access later.
The Ebay app for Windows Phone is available as a free download from the Windows Phone Marketplace. Mango is a requirement however, so you’ll need to update your device if you haven’t done so already.
