    eBay app for iPhone was released like in 2008? Took then awfully long to come to Android...

    Dunno, maybe there were 3rd party ones or smth.

    I have bought stuff on ebay before through the browser... Seems like the iphone only needs all these apps because of the poor browser compatibility. I won't be installing this because the browser does the job well the few times a year I will need to bid for something on my mobile

    Nice, shame my Orange branded Desire is rammed full of non-removable demos so I can't install a sensible number of my own apps on it. HTC, bring on the 2.2 Android update or I will be flashing it myself soon..

    Wrong. The app just provides a better experience because it reduces the amount you have to download and the interface is better adapted for mobile. With Flash excepted, the iPhone's browser has pretty good standards support.

    Do you use a dedicated "app" for browsing ebay on your PC too? That might give you a better "experience"

    On the other hand, if you could use widgets to track ebay auction on your home screen that might be useful for the ebay addicts... Do these ebay apps do that?

    The eBay iPhone apps have push support for auctions (outbid, ended etc.) which in it's own right makes it worthwhile. I myself have been saved with push messages when out and about with an item ending soon.
