Whether you are using eBay to sell things you no longer want, or to buy things you have always been looking for, it is important to keep up to date with the latest activity in your account. Step away from your computer and you may not know when you receive a message from a potential purchaser, or when you are outbid on an auction. There has been a universal iOS app available for some time, but the iPad specific version has been designed from the ground up to take full advantage of the large screen of the tablet, complete with support for the retina display.
The home screen is highly customizable and is a great starting point that provides easy access to all of the most commonly used aspects of the site. If you are an eBay addict, constantly searching for hidden gems and rarities online, you can store saved searches on your home screen for quick access as well as keeping an eye on daily deals and the buying and selling activity that has taken place in your account.
The beauty of the home screen is the fact that any items you do choose to add - be it searches or your current auctions details - you can choose what order things are displayed in so it can be tailored to suit your exact needs. Newly added support for the retina display of the latest iPad means that it is now possible to view high resolution images of the items you are looking at. The app is a great example of developers listening to what users have suggested
The app can be used to not only monitor any of the auctions you have created, but also edit them if and when required. Even if you only use eBay on a casual basis for idle browsing, the interface is a vast improvement on previous versions and there are an impressive array of options for sharing your finds with other through social networks and other channels. It is now possible to receive more alerts than before.
