Team review

" Bid and buy ! "

The application has not yet detailed description, however the team assigned the note of 9 / 10. This note is based on the following criteria: Quality, Usefulness, Ease of Use, Privacy Concerns of user data (depending on the permissions required)..

The app is compatible with most Android devices running on.

Its weight is very light, less than a megabyte is sufficient to store and operate.

Its number of downloads in the Android Market (Google Play) is quite low. The application is either new, or limited to a specific area that only a few users are interested in.

Positive review Great App by anonym
Everything that I care about when "searching" on ebay. Current prices and final auction bids. Been using this program for a few years now. Thanks! 5/5
Positive review Hrt somehow is null by anonym
Great app but I recently just started getting the message above in the title and none of the pictures of the listing show up anymore, please look into it 4/5
Negative review by anonym
The app keeps sending me deals of the day, and I can't find a way to stop it or to delete them off the phone. 1/5
Positive review Great user options by anonym
Simple view for doing the most basic things quick and easy. Can't really fault well. Added advantage of seeing sold items and average item sale price 5/5
Positive review Great app by anonym
Easy to use. Works well without any major glitches. Only problem I've had so far is that the item description is infinitesimaly small. Pretty much of no use. 4/5
Positive review Great app! by anonym
It works very well! Almost sorry I installed it...can't tell you how much I've spent using this app! 5/5
Negative review by anonym
After updating the app, I can no longer log in nor do anything but search. I cannot watch an item or nothing. Before update it worked perfect!!! 1/5
Positive review Good in principle, could go further by anonym
Works better than the eBay app these days. Looks nice for the most part although some images of products corrupt badly. Now needs to add saved searches. 4/5
Positive review NO SPYWARE UNLIKE NEW E-BAY APP by anonym
e-bay has added camera access at any time without your permission... be warned!!!! I will be switching all my devices to this app,, easier to read and NO SPYING ON ME !!!! WTF E-BAY nice way to ruin your mobile app 5/5
Positive review Improved, but still by anonym
Mt old review complement about some alert items not being shown, but selecting all countries in options fixed that! This seems more stable than the official app, which constantly loses connection when I know the phone is still connected, but the interface could use a modem look, it's a lot like the old eBay app from a few years back which may be why it's more stable than the new official app. 4/5
Positive review So far I m liking this app by anonym
Well this app is letting me see everything. Nit I'm not finding what I need to get.. 5/5
Negative review Excellent by anonym
Buying alerts no longer pop up even though selected in options. Fix this on my galaxy s3 and add filtering by location and this would be a 5 star app like it used to be! 2/5
Positive review Nice app by anonym
Quick and way better than the bloated official app. 5/5
Positive review by anonym
Quick, easy and user friendly for fast reference of eBay items. 5/5
Negative review Poor by anonym
When searching for a car, i was unable to refine the search so i just got cars. Similarly with other items. 2/5
Positive review Great app..for a quick peek by anonym
Works well,light weight,and did I good job 5/5
Neutral review by anonym
If you have the capabilities of looking at the items for sale screen and seeing how many watchers then this would have a higher rating. It would have a5 star rating if the photos were actually larger. So I had to give it 3 stars. 3/5
Neutral review Like it but by anonym
I like this app better than the stock eBay app for this tablet. Faster and easier to use. But, it only shows 30 of my watched items at a time. :0( 3/5
Positive review Great by anonym
Better than the ebay official app but one annoying thing is that it ask me to rate the app from time to time which I already have . Negative 4 star because of that 5/5
Negative review No saved search notifications. by anonym
No fave search notification, so useless to me. Ebay's app has this, but it keeps resetting... someone could be king of the hill if they figured out this flaw. All apps try to offer but all are either buggy or non functional. This app took the safe route, and just didnt offer SS notifications. 1/5
Positive review Excellent, better than official ebay app by anonym
Works great, no flaws yet. I had so many problems with the one that was supose to be official. The only problem ive had with this one was the air push. But after opting out seems to be ok. Thanks and I reccomend this ebay app to my friends and others 4/5
Positive review Small change request by anonym
Very useful and easy. But on the sellers page, the Bids count color is such a light, faint gray. Time left is a loud, vibrant color, wish bid count was easier to see. I know minor issue but thought I'd mention it. Thanks for a great app. 4/5
Neutral review Has Potential! by anonym
This app has a ton of potential to be awesome, but definitely needs some work. So far my biggest complaints are the fact that you can't zoom in or out on the description page, can't click on any of the pictures to see, and I found something I really wanted but the auction had already ended... Deals are great, but only if they're actually good! 3/5
Negative review Begs for reviews, bad design by anonym
After only a few minutes of use, I got a dialog box asking for me to leave a good review on Google Play. Poorly designed and annoying for one, on top of the fact that I simply could not give a decent quality review after 5 minutes of use. That made the decision for me though. The app's navigation clashes with Android design conventions, especially the menu. Most screens only pop up a bar with "home" and "refresh". "Settings", "about", and "sign out" are only available when you push the button on the main screen. This space could have been put to better use, and in a much less confusing way. It's not obvious that the main screen's menu bar has these options and is the only one that does, which made navigation frustrating at first. Reminds me of UI problems in Windows 8.... I can get alerts for items that I've bid on or watched once they have 15 minutes remaining. Except you get alerts for all items you've bid on, or none of them. Same thing with watched items, except you can remove items from the watchlist as you want. But why not allow me to put alerts on individual items? Nonetheless, you get alerts for "eBay Deal of the Day" by default. Hooray. 2/5
Positive review Great app by anonym
Haven't had a problem other that just bein slow after Iv purchased an item but great for wat it is still better than Craigslist or ne other auction site 5/5
Neutral review Its good overall but missing something by anonym
I just think its better to see the biddings. So much glitch i think. Some info does not match when you look through pc. 3/5
Negative review USA CHATROOM by anonym
Avoid the USA chatroom. These people are super rude and abusive, vulgar and racist. Feel free to see for yourself. I would not advise talking on there. Sent several emails to support, but they WILL NOT respond or try to take control of the situation. 1/5
Positive review Epic! by anonym
Fantastic app for eBay afficionados. It even has an option to check for the products you're looking for outside of eBay! Small,quick and reliable.A Must Have and Highly recommended app! 5/5
Negative review Not the best any more by anonym
I installed this having had problems with the official eBay app after a bad update. This used to be a great app but lags behind the official one now, at least it does on faster devices. I placed a bid on an item with 12 seconds remaining and it failed to register it. Zoomed photos are strangely broken too, they somehow display inverted / faded out, though the thumbnails are OK, and you can't pinch to zoom either. As it also lacks features like bid history, when the official app is working, it's superior. 2/5
Positive review Great app by anonym
This app has a great look, great user interface and is great for a small phone cause it doesn't take up much space. It gives me quick access to my eBay summary, all the things I'm watching and I can keep track of things in real time on eBay. 5/5
Neutral review It was fantastic until... by anonym stopped allowing view of my complete watched items list or other lists. Everything is cut off at 30 items. I used to use it all the time, but now it's barely useful. 3/5
Negative review Freezes A lot & Lags Badly by anonym
Freezes a lot and lags after opening. Hrt was somehow null keeps appearing over and over even when I close it. Please fix. Samsung galaxy s relay 1/5
Neutral review Fairly good by anonym
I use it for eBay and its functional. Does have deal if day spam though. 3/5
Positive review Great alternative to eBay by anonym
When ebay recently had problems with their app, I tried this and I have been very happy. Quick launching, full html of listing, and doesn't hog battery like the eBay one. Wish it had more options for notifications, but overall a great app. 4/5
Negative review Can't log into my eBay account. by anonym
This keeps telling me that my username or password is incorrect. I have entered it at least 5 times while double checking to verify my password was entered correctly. 1/5
Positive review Fine for smart phone by anonym
I don't sell, but find this app A convenient aid to shopping via my Lucid 2 (4.3") phone. 5/5
Positive review Better than the official version by anonym
One of the original eBay app then eBay created their own but its crap! This is better than the official eBay! So i installed the official and used it for several months. I have to uninstall it as i miss this app and the other one is buggy. 5/5
Neutral review It's ok by anonym
It works but it's too basic. There are not enough ways to refine searches so you end up with countless irrelevant results. Watch list isn't very user friendly. I didn't see any way to leave feedback for items purchased; reminded me of another reviewer that couldn't mark an item as paid, I think. I will say that it doesn't want a bunch of unnecessary access to other things on your phone that raise privacy concerns. That is a big plus. I cannot say the same for the official ebay app. Kudos 4 that 3/5
Positive review Pocket auction by anonym
Don't think you can do any better on android. I haven't tried any of the other ebay apps though, but I doubt there any better. Simple, easy and quick. 5/5
Positive review Needs some polish by anonym
It is a great app. It does have a few short comings from making it 5 stars. 1. It should have some way to show that an item you are selling has been paid like the official app. You show that an item that has been bought is not yet paid so why not do something similar for an item you are selling. The official app has the big RED PAID stamp. 2. It should show that an item you are selling has a bid like a different color on the selling price (blue to green maybe). Other than these minor items this is a nice app. 4/5
