When you compare the Windows Phone ecosystem to iOS and Android you’ll find that we have most of the major apps. However, our apps don’t get updated as much as we’d like. Which is why we get pretty excited when apps like eBay get updated. That just happened, so let’s check out what’s new with eBay on Windows Phone.
Head into the Store and you’ll see eBay sitting pretty at version 188.8.131.52. We last reported on eBay in late January when we learned the company had plans to update their Windows Phone app. The update was due in March, but as you know its late April. Still, an update is an update and this one looks to be pretty big.
Of course eBay would forgo on a proper changelog, even after our public plea yesterday. So we’re flying blind here checking for new features. You will notice that the entire interface has been revamped. Gone is the black layout from yesteryear. Update the eBay app and you’ll find a fresh new white layout that brings it more in line with the Android and iOS.
Here’s the full list of features listed in the eBay’s description:
- Searching made easy! Use our refinement carousel to find the exact item you want, at the price you want.
- Need more filtering options? A quick swipe from the right side will bring up our complete list of advanced search options.
- Browse Daily Deals or your personalized eBay feed right from the home screen!
- Find what you like? Hit the Buy it Now button and make your purchase straight from the app.
- Want to try an auction instead? Bid with confidence knowing our improved notifications will notify you when you've been outbid or an item is ending.
- Shop globally! You can change your eBay site in Settings, giving you access to eBay markets all over the world.
- Receive notifications when your purchases have sent, and track with ease.
- Pin an item as a Live Tile and track its status on your phone's home screen!
- Review a seller's profile and Feedback, allowing you to shop with confidence.
- List your own items to sell, auction, or both!
- And much, much more!
