A pair of new Ebay apps were released for the iPhone and iPod Touch today, and the online selling company plans to hit the ground running with iPad versions expected to launch day-and-date with the release of the device on April 3.

"Point, shoot and click to list an item...in 60 seconds," claims Ebay with its new "eBay Selling app," available as a free download.

Users simply log into their Ebay account, type up a description of the item(s) they want to sell, and add photos from the device in streamlined fashion.

From there, users can track the auction with an optimized mobile interface and can link to the mobile PayPal app (PayPal is owned by Ebay) to allow for sending and receiving money on the go as well.

Another app is specifically for Ebay's "Classifieds" service, which allows users to post an ad for free, again in less than a minute and from anywhere in the world.

"We’ve put the world’s largest online marketplace in the palm of your hand, and we’ve introduced a great new option for consumers who prefer to sell and buy in a trusted, family friendly local classifieds format," said Ebay Marketplace president Lorrie Norrington.

These apps will also work with the iPad, which launches on Saturday.
