It's over for the eBay app on Windows as it ceases operation
We already knew this was coming but not exactly when, and now it's happened. The eBay app for Windows has ceased to operate. As of September 30 it was officially discontinued and pulled from the Store, but the app kept allowing access to the auction site after this date.
The change affects both phones and PCs and all you're left with now is a message telling you to "upgrade your application," except you can't. Obviously. So there we have it.
Pour one out for eBay, another long provided app biting the dust. You'll now have to use the browser.
Thanks to everyone who tipped us!

I have also never had a problem with PayPal fraud, but every form of payment has problems, especially online. At least with PayPal you have buyer/seller protection.
Windows is just easier.
Also most important thing to me is phone camera and photo software, which I think is far better on Windows.
But...I am going to really miss the Ebay app.
Looks like we'll have to use the site for now.
Seriously, it's not like the eBay app was anywhere in my top 10 apps I use. I like the platform and I'm not leaving. Why would that mean anyone who is using it pathetic? It's just what I like to use. A personal preference. Glad you found a phone that you like, I'm glad you are not on Windows anymore.
Please, explain to everybody how that makes me a fanboy :) And please. ChromeOS is made to be a lightweight OS. It'll be a very long time, if ever, before you see big programs like Adobe Photoshop. Also, what you seem to be forgetting to mention with the data collection (very convenient) is how all data is anonymous. (Which means no personal details attached). Sadly can't say the same for Google

Edit: It stopped after reopening it just a seconds ago!!! :-(
