The eBay app hasn't always been a looker, but it's been improving steadily in recent months. With today's update, some parts of the app are getting prettied up, and a few new features are along for the ride.
Here's the changelog for v2.6.
- A fresh look and added functionality in Messages
- Attach up to 5 photos to a message
- Actionable notifications with high quality images (Jelly Bean & above)
- Add your favorite charities and donate at checkout
- Search improvements and refinement locking (rolling out slowly worldwide)
- Language support for Polish, Dutch, Flemish and Latin American Spanish
The notification tweaks might be the most obvious change in this update. The app has options to notify you about all sorts of things like watched item alerts, outbids, counteroffers, and item won alerts. Now these notifications will come with an image of the item in question and buttons with common actions attached. That could be neat if you have a lot of stuff pending on eBay. The improved messaging is cool for big eBay users as well. The update is live now in Google Play, so go grab it.
