New eBay app for iPhones can list products lightning fast

Posted in iPhone Accessories by Conner Flynn on March 30th, 2010

These two new apps for either sellers or those who want to buy/sell locally are pretty cool. The Classifieds app uses the iPhone’s GPS to remember your location and will only display items near you based on what you’re searching for.

The second app is also free and is being called a “power tool” by ebay. The item being sold can be listed in under 60 seconds, which is incredibly fast for sellers. Put these two apps in your ebay arsenal and you’ll be happy you did. Now if only ebay would lower their fees, you might make some decent profit from that rare and ugly vase you just listed.

Amazon’s Kindle has released apps for both the iPhone and the PC. And now its arriving on the Mac. The Kindle app is free, and hooks you up with Amazon’s bookstore where you can buy books or check out previews of books.

With these apps, Amazon has done the smart thing and taken the ebook store as far as it will go, which is a good thing since the iPad will shake things up. I wonder what the ereader market will look like in one year.
