eBay for BlackBerry 10 updated to v2.3.0.25 - Changes remain a mystery

If you've downloaded the eBay app for BlackBerry 10 in the past, you no doubt noticed it was a massive battery hog. A new update is now available and while I'd love to be able to say the battery issues are now resolved, I simply don't know because eBay is apparently too lazy to update their change log. In fact, they seemingly just straight up copied it from the Android version as far as I can tell.

Perhaps it's fitting considering it's an Android port anyway but they could have at least took out the note about tablet support since it's apparently not available for the BlackBerry PlayBook. In any case, if you want to give it a run, the update is live now in BlackBerry World. If you find the battery issues are indeed resolved, let others know in the comments. Oh right, it also shows as available for the Q10 and Q5 as well now.

eBay for BlackBerry 10 updated to v2.3.0.25 - Changes remain a mystery

Just remove this app. Drop it. If you are going to let it rot and not even give an hour's effort to test it on BlackBerry then just bug off...

Android apps can run on BlackBerry. But that doesn't mean you can just convert it and drop it and expect that's good enough.

That ^ and that fact I don't want my phone to feel as though it's going to melt from overheating like the last time I downloaded this app.

From my Z10 to YOU, BOO-YAH!

It's pretty dumb not to make a good app.

I used ebay all the time, but since getting my Z10, I'm hardly on my computer so I miss all my opportunities to use it.

If they had a good app I'd use it.

I'm pretty confused about your claim that there's no change log. There's a 2 page list of changes

I'm pretty confused about your claim stating that I claimed there was no change log:

"A new update is now available and while I'd love to be able to say the battery issues are now resolved, I simply don't know because eBay is apparently too lazy to update their change log. In fact, they seemingly just straight up copied it from the Android version as far as I can tell."

I grabbed it. Will see if the battery drain issue remains or not. That is why I couldn't use it before.

I have change logs @.@

We've update your eBay selling experience:

Tablet support
Preview your item before listening it
Access your draft listing in my ebay

Redesign your home screen with quick excess to your recently viewed items ( you can turn off this setting)

Our new selling experience look good on tablet and phone and helps to list your items hassle free in a minute

The difference in usability if Android ports from 10.1 to 10.2 is ridiculous.

Ebay was painful to use before. This update with 10.2 and it is perfectly usable.

Posted via CB10

Agreed, 10.2 Android experience is actually pretty good. The updated android player makes a huge difference. Still not close to native though!

Posted via CB10

Ive used their mobile app while still on 10.1, never really had an issue for the times I was searching for items.

DilBit Powered Q10... 10.2 where ya 2 bye??

Now how about bringing Kijiji to bb10! That would be awesome.

Posted via the best phone ever. The white Z10.

This was an interesting review. Seemed very bitter. Fitting so I suppose, considering that all we seemingly get these days are Android ports.

Posted via CB10

My Z10 was one of the ones having the reboot problem. I read somewhere on here that this app had something to do with it. I deleted it and it really did get better. Love ebay, not this app. In the immortal words of Shawn and Gus, "suck it."

Posted via CB10

Sign in page is new, upper right now has shopping cart icon, search, and extended menu dots: Sign out, My Settings, My Ebay, Refresh. On 10.2.0.1323 complete app redesign. I like it. (okay don't shoot me)...

Posted via CB10

Kudos to eBay though for giving us a more up to date version even if it is an android port. Hopefully 10.2 will allow more big names like eBay to give us better android ports until a time they wish to commit resources and give us a native version.

Posted via CB10

This update has allowed me to download the app from BlackBerry world straight to my Q10 which I couldn't do before.

Posted via CB10

I've been using a sideloaded version of the Android app with the same version number ever since I got my Q10. Ironically enough, the sideload also works on the PlayBook, even if the 'official' port doesn't.

Seems like the latest update for the eBay app for Android was in April, for US and UK citizens. Updates to the UI mainly.

6 hours since I downloaded this and signed in, so far so good with battery, usage seems normal, looks like it is fixed, fingers crossed stays like this.

App seems pretty decent as well :)

Would be nice if I were able to login it keeps saying no network found stupid thing. Using 10.2.01385

Posted via CB10

So far so good. If you're worried about battery life just log out. You won't get notifications but it saves your battery.

How is everyone finding battery usage whilst staying logged in? Mine seems okay but not 100% sure. Please reply to this comment :)

Posted via CB10

No issues on battery drain here.
Notifications on, and running an hour active framed before auction ends, still no excessive draining. looks like it's fixed!
PS: running 10.2.0.1047
