No eBay iPhone app in Canada, but there's one in the US?

Note this page: iPhone - App Store - Apple Canada

There's a big eBay app sitting on the left. When you search the iTunes CAD store - nothing for ebay. Just PayPal and GarageBuy.

It's in the US store though. Any workarounds?

Well I'm sure it's on the Canadian Apple website, because it's just a copy of the US site.

Probably not available on the Canadian iTunes store because it's only works with the US eBay site.

You need to have a US itunes account (us billing credit card)

Canadian store is missing out on

Google App
Ebay
Pandora
AOL Radio

ETC

They probably want to keep the Canadians on eBay Canada and the Americans on eBay US, maybe to better manage their mobile site servers.

I went through the pain of setting up an extra account and getting the apps, but I installed them, they worked, and then on next sync, all of the US only apps started just crashing and returning to home screen. Anyone else have this problem?

Pandora doesn't work due to regional restrictions but my other stuff is OK [AOL Radio as well as the EBAY app]

Try downloading an application on your phone; does that screw up the American apps you've installed? Does for me . . .
