Find the cutest companion imaginable, with just a few clicks.
Launched in August, the free eBay Classifieds Pets iPhone application lets users easily find adoptable pets locally via the iPhone or iPod Touch. The application, downloadable both from the eBay Classifieds Pets site and Apple’s App Store, includes robust search functionality, can store watch lists with pet specifications and locations, allows users to respond to ads on-the-fly or share them on social media channels, and more. It’s one of several new innovative initiatives from eBay Classifieds.
Through affiliations with The Humane Society of the United States and Petfinder.com, eBay Classifieds is already a top resource for adopting shelter pets, but the new iPhone application adds mobile flexibility for those who want to search for and monitor the status of potential pets while on the go.
“Mobile users will find a great combination of pet selection and application features in the eBay Classifieds Pets iPhone app,” said Chuck Pletcher, Senior Operations Manager for eBay Classifieds. “The application is also designed for easy integration with social media tools such as Facebook and Twitter, as well as customizations including saved search and a watch list.”
In addition to these functions, the eBay Classifieds Pets iPhone application, includes:
- Big-picture slideshows of available pets
- Search functionality by any combination of keywords, location, categories and attributes
- Pet locations displayed on maps
- Easy ways to respond to ads by email or phone
eBay Classifieds in the U.S. and sister companies Kijiji (Canada and other countries), Gumtree (Australia, South Africa, Poland, and other countries), eBay Kleinanzeigen (Germany) and more are leading the mobile charge in the classifieds industry with more than nine iPhone apps and counting.
