Pocket Auctions For eBay – A Free eBay Android Client App

By | April 17, 2014

I’m starting to think that I might be obsessed with eBay, just a little bit, because I’ve been spending awful lot of time over there. I’m not actually buying stuff, because I’m broke most of the time, but being broke doesn’t stop me from making lists of items that I’m gonna buy once that I have some cash at hand. The fact that I installed an eBay Android client app onto my tablet just confirms my doubts that I need to seek help, but before I do that, I’ll a write an app review, because who needs health when you can write.

Yes I know that there’s an official eBay app that’s created and released by eBay itself, but like it was the case with Acrobat Reader before, I actually like using Pocket Auctions more.

    Let’s not forget about the deals

    Deals can save you a lot of money, and that’s why you should never forget to check all the currently active deals. This might be my eBay addiction that’s doing the talking, but every cent that you save when buying slightly more important things like a new dishwasher, helps.
