eBay

Getting better results with easier to read item listings no matter how you search. 

The official eBay app for Android has just received an update with a few user-facing changes that should improve the overall experience. Version 2.4 improves search results by showing items relevant to your location, and gives a bit of foreshadowing indicating that in-store pickup is coming. Additionally, search results when scanning barcodes have been improved.

The item view layout once you do get those search results has improved to focus on the most relevant information first, and if you want to share a listing to a friend you can now do so with Android Beam over NFC assuming you've both installed the latest update. Under your profile settings, you now have the ability to edit or add a shipping address as well — something many of us don't want to wait to do on the desktop.

These handful of improvements are useful to pretty much anyone with the eBay app, so go grab a download of the latest version from the link above.

Until amazon releases amazon prime across all android devices I refuse to buy anything through them or from them. As far as I see it amazon who. But it is sweet to see nfc get used for more and more things go ebay.

I'm not happy ebay uses the gps precise location. Much too intrusive. The approximate location would be more than enough for their purposes!
