Online auction service eBay jumped into the Mac App Store on this week, launching a new program that lets users track sales from their desktop.
The eBay desktop application was released on Tuesday. Like its iOS app predecessor, the app is aimed at buyers and not sellers—although eBay has solved that issue in the mobile arena with its new Instant Sale app. Users can’t put items up for auction, but they can create saved searches for products they want to buy, as well as monitor eBay’s Daily Deals. Users can also share links to favored items via email.
Of course, if you’re on your computer already, eBay.com is just a browser window away—and with a broader range of features. The app appears designed for multitasking auction enthusiasts—people who want to keep an eye on eBay’s auctions and deals during the day while they surf the Web or do productive work.
The eBay app is free, and compatible with Macs running OS X 10.6 or later.
