eBay app updated in BlackBerry Beta Zone


It feels a lot more touchscreen optimized. Font is huge on my Bold 9000.
Load time is a lot faster and smoother like stated above.
As a seller and buyer I feel this application has improved.

It is. On my 9810 I'm able to flip through items on the home screen. I'm really impressed with the changes they have made. This is truly a more optimized application.

Ebay v1 is the worst app ever!!!! They should pistol whip the person that developed it. Hopefully they fix all of the issues like 3 items per page and not being able to list things

I wonder if this fixed the issue of not being able to leave some boxes blank like the "bundled items" box when I was selling a phone that didn't come with any extras. I guess I will have to find something to sell so I can see.

would be great if they would add a "keep me logged in" or "remember me" box when you log in. its rather annoying having to do so frequently
