eBay has released a pretty big update for its iPhone and iPad app. If you’ve used eBay on iOS before, you know that it’s not the greatest experience in the world. Today’s update hopefully makes it better.

Besides a visual redesign, eBay has added several nice features, including multiple item checkout, quicker registration, bug fixes, and more.

– Checkout multiple items at a time with the new eBay Shopping Cart (US and UK only)
– Tap the grid icon at the top of search results to see larger photos (iOS 6 required)*
– Scan your drivers license for fast and easy eBay registration (available in select US states)
– Improved last minute bidding
– Selling support for Spain

iOS 5+ is required for this update

*New search results will be available over the next two weeks

eBay for iPad
