eBay fans may appreciate the idea of locating auction items from a free toolbar, but this one is a joke. APN Retail eBay Toolbar lists several of eBay's sites, including eBay U.K., Australia, Canada, France and, of course, eBay.com, in its searching for desired items.
You can enter items in the search field located on the bar and determine which of the sites you want to scan. Options to only list items that accept PayPal or that offer Buy It Now options can be ticked before conducting the search, but we quickly learned that it didn't really matter what you tick since both are going to show up anyway.
Because the program is running through APNretail.co.uk, oftentimes it took a while for it to present the results. Many times, the search button didn't even react to an entry. A ticker tape of eBay news, tips, and items runs on the bar even if you don't want it to, but you can change the font and color of the toolbar and determine some behaviors, such as autocomplete of search history and sound alerts for blocked pop-ups. In short, eBay lovers won't find much to love about APN Retail eBay Toolbar.
Thousands of items on eBay don't sell because they are listed with spelling mistakes. The APN toolbar allows you to use the powerful APN search functionality directly from a browser toolbar. You can quickly search many of the main eBay sites. The toolbar also includes a handy eBay news ticker to keep you up to date on the latest eBay news.
