With the launch of Windows Phone 7, several companies have eagerly launched an app for the service, including eBay. This new app will let users search, bid, buy and check their eBay activity on the go, with Windows Phone 7’s push notification technology built in so that users receive real-time alerts on deals and best offer activity.
“eBay and Microsoft share a common goal of keeping consumers connected. When Microsoft approached us about Windows Phone 7, we welcomed the opportunity to reach more eBay users and to create a unique, engaging mobile shopping experience on Microsoft’s platform,” said Steve Yankovich, eBay’s vice president of mobile and platform business solutions. “We built this app from the ground up to take full advantage of Microsoft’s operating system. Users can slide through all their eBay activity and receive real-time notifications on best offer and bidding activity, and items ending soonest.”
