EBay sellers fear San Dimas desktop app won't prove 'most excellent'

Dude, where's my listing?

Some testers are enthused by eBay Desktop.

"I find it easier, and ironically a heckuva lot faster than moving around on the regular site," wrote one poster, 'clact.'

One surprising omission in eBay Desktop is the ability to drag and drop items. Franco said that feature is an "advanced" one that is not intuitive for mainstream users conditioned to eBay's static Web pages.

And though it has confidence in the security provided to eBay Desktop by AIR, the application keeps all private user data behind eBay's firewall, rather than storing it in the application itself.

"I'd say this is more secure with a small 'S,'" Lewis said.

Though initially scheduled for release by year's end, Lewis now said that eBay Desktop won't come out of beta until after AIR does, which is expected in the first quarter next year.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
