eBay has announced the launch of 'Image Search' for iOS, a new feature that searches for listings based on a photo.

With Image Search, you just click on the camera button and take a photo or use an existing photo of the item you want to buy from your camera roll. eBay will then show you listings for items that are a close match or visually similar to what you want to buy.
