As long as you're not being scammed with fake cashier's checks, eBay can be a great resource to get goods on the cheap. The eBay app hasn't always been the easiest to use, but the new update brings some solid improvements and makes it much easier to post items for sale.

The full list of changes in version 2.1 are:

  • Streamlined listing flow makes it faster and easier to list your items:
  • Save multiple listing drafts so you can finish at your convenience
  • Calculated shipping now supported (domestic only)
  • More guidance and pre-populated fields to simplify the process
  • Saved search improvements
  • Improved shipment tracking information
  • Improved image handling

The eBay app now seems to have all the features you'd get on the website. Certainly there's no reason to pop it open in your mobile browser anymore. The UI is fairly good, but doesn't take many cues from holo. If you're an eBay seller, there's no reason not to grab this update.

    Yeah I like the new icon, that's all I care.

    Lots of clashing Android design here - top looks good with the Holo UI elements but lower down there's a fair bit of inconsistency... the blue gradient buttons, the find a vehicle/part buttons and worst of all the background found in the motors section!!
