If you are a big mobile eBay user, then you have an update waiting for you in the App Store right now that brings along some nifty new features to the mobile shopping experience. New to the mobile application is the ability to pick up in store for free if a local retailer is selling through eBay, where you can simply click “Free in-store pickup” in order to go get the purchased item at your own leisure. Other new features of the update make the mobile marketplace a little more social, allowing you to share items to your Pinterest boards as well as share listing to those around you via AirDrop, a new feature of iOS 7. Here is the full change log for version 3.2.0:
What’s New in Version 3.2.0
-Use the “Free in-store pickup” and “Click and Collect” options to purchase items from local retailers on eBay and pick them up in stores at a time that’s convenient to you (US and UK only).
-Your personalized Feed is now accessible from the home screen.
-Share items to your Pinterest boards with the new Pinterest sharing option.
-Share via AirDrop.
-Swipe through images while on the item screen.
-Save time listing your items with our improved selling features.
-Thanks to your feedback we have also improved saved searches and increased the size of the back button.
We’re always listening so please continue to send us suggestions and comments on get satisfaction.com/ebaymobile or send us a tweet@eBayMobile.
As you can see, those are some of the most notable new features but there are some other that include new UI enhancements such as the ability to swipe through images on a listing page as well an increased size for some buttons. If you aren’t using eBay mobile yet, but would like to be, you can check out the application for free on the App Store here: eBay Mobile. The iPad version also received an update, however it wasn’t like that of the iPhone update instead containing mostly speed improvements and bug fixes.
