Anyone using eBay for buying and selling need no longer battle with the mobile version of the web site on their iPad or use a low-resolution iPhone app to keep track of their auctions thanks to the release of the massively updated eBay for iPad 2.0.0.
As you would expect, following the release of the new iPad there is support for the high resolution retina display and this means that it is now possible to view higher quality images for the auctions you are browsing, but there’s much more to look forward to in this app that has been completely redesigned from scratch.
As this is a completely overhauled version of the app, there is a great deal to explore in the latest release. The starting point for any app is its home screen, and eBay for iPad has a highly customizable one that houses your buying, selling and watching activity by default. However, you can choose the order in which things are displayed, so if you are only interested in selling, you can hide anything that relates to buying, If buying is more your thing, you can add saved searches to the home screen for easy access.
Many of the changes in the app have come as a result of user feedback and one of the most requested features from eBay sellers has been the ability to make changes to listings. This feature is now available in the app so if you spot a mistake in a description, you can make quick changes without the need to fire up your Mac or PC. There is now support for more notifications than ever before, so even if you are not actively using the app it will keep you informed about what is happening in your account.
In addition to the option to add saved searches to the home screen, there have also been changes to the way in which search results are shown, with a total of three different views to choose from. The move to version 2.0 sees the iPad eBay app evolving into something that is genuinely impressive, and it is now a tool that is a far cry from the original release which is easier and faster to use than the mobile version of the auction web site.
