eBay has updated its iPad app with improved searching, a better seller's view, and sorted seller feedback.

The eBay for iPad app lets you sell, search, bid, buy, browse, and pay in an interface optimized for the iPad. With seamless scrolling, advanced search, and high resolution pictures - you've never seen eBay look so good. The app takes advantage of the iPad's stunning image resolution, large touchscreen, and on-the-go portability to deliver a revolutionary shopping experience.

What's New In This Version:
• Saved Searches Now Show Only Newly Listed Items
We've added your most requested feature. Saved Searches now show only the newly-listed items for your search, same as in the eBay for iPhone app.

• Improved Search Refinements
We made searching work more like the eBay website, exactly how you'd expect it.

• Improved "Seller's View" of View Item
You asked us for easier-to-find information about new bids, watches, and current price. We moved those details front and center on the View Item page to keep you informed.

• Prominent Display of Item Information
The most relevant information you need to make a purchase decision is now at the top of the item listing including additional information about shipping options and expected delivery time.

• Easily Navigate Around My eBay
Heavy eBay users will appreciate the ability to filter their My eBay sections into subgroups such as "Selling: Sold" and "Selling: Active" and more options.

• Support for 12 Photos When Selling
Sometimes you need 12 photos to really describe your item. Now you can attach all 12.

• Feedback Filtering
Following the eBay for iPhone app's lead, buyers can now filter a seller's Feedback by Positive, Negative and Neutral reviews.

• Recent Searches and Items Syncs with the eBay Website
Pick up right where you left off! The app syncs with the eBay website to show the items you last viewed or the last task you were performing on the website. You'll never lose your place.

• Support for Poland, Malaysia, Singapore, and Philippines
eBay buyers from Poland and Southeast-Asian countries can now search, buy, and pay all within the app.

• Filtering By 'Buy It Now' shows the Buy It Now price
Why would you want to see the auction price for BIN items? Now the Buy It Now price is shown in search results when viewing only Buy It Now items.

• Better Handling of Links within View Item
We didn't like popping out to Safari to view certain information in the app either, so we fixed that.

• Increased Stability on all Platforms
Nobody likes crashes or slow performance, especially us. With your help troubleshooting, we've fixed a number of issues which were causing problems for a few members, and optimized the app to run better on first-generation iPads.

You can download eBay for iPad from the App Store for free.
