eBay has released an updated version of their online auction app, eBay for iPad. Now you can browse through curated channels to find things like Deals, Fashion, Electronics, and Collectibles.

They’ve also made it easier to find items with the new View item refresh and have moved sellers’ products to the forefront of their profiles. There is also a new Search landing interface, notification bell on the home screen, and integration Google and Yahoo Ads.

“Our aspiration is to make eBay the most inspiring place to shop,” said RJ Pittman, chief product officer at eBay. “This new experience is aimed at giving sellers the best platform to showcase their products and make it effortless for buyers to discover and engage with their inventory.”

In celebration of the new eBay for iPad, there are some exclusive deals for iPad-centric accessories and “app-cessories.” You can find them only on the eBay for iPad app in the collections, which you can download for free now.

iPhone App - Designed for iPhone, compatible with iPad

eBay has updated their online auction app to version 3.4.0.

Sellers can now select and donate to their favorite charities via eBay Giving Works when listing items for sale. The new seller features also include buyer’s location and the ability to send a payment reminder.

For buyers, eBay has improved search results, made photos larger, and included product reviews for items. You can also find bonus offers from eBay sellers and some items will be available for in-store pick-up, or same-day and scheduled delivery.

You can download the updated eBay app for free.

Yardsellr has been quite a success story in recent times. Originally set up by three former eBay executives, Daniel Leffel, Jed Clevenger and Rachel Makool, it’s essentially eBay for Facebook.

Unlike the popular auction site, there are no auctions to be seen here. Instead sellers list items at fixed prices in different categories or ‘blocks’ as the site likes to call it. It’s an idea that has proven popular thanks to its Facebook connections making it especially useful for the female demographic that are typically most likely to use the social network. Unlike eBay the fees system also works differently with buyers being charged around ten percent rather than the seller, no doubt proving beneficial to many.

Making Yardsellr a kind of online neighborhood to buy and sell items is a neat touch so it’s good to see it spread to the App Store courtesy of the official Yardsellr app.

The app does nearly exactly what any Yardsellr user could want. Currently there’s only buying functionality but selling abilities are set to be added in an upcoming update.

For newcomers to the Yardsellr world, it’s refreshing to see rather than the impersonal side of selling that eBay offers, Yardsellr has much more of a community spirit with sellers seeming impassioned by the items they’re trying to find a new home for. There’s also a prevalence of items that will be of great interest to users of selling communities like Etsy with some fantastic hand created bits and pieces being sold alongside more commercially available goods.

Much like the website, it’s important to note that Yardsellr is only open to users within the United States. People from other nations had best hope that in the future Yardsellr will be extended further afield. It’s great to see something a bit different from the eBay norm flourish so well.

The app is available now for free.
