Version 2.0 of eBay for iPad brings a great deal of improvements!

Just a few days after Amazon updated its universal iOS app with some changes that happen to be applicable only for iPhone and iPod touch, here comes eBay with an update to its iPad app that turns out to be quite a bombshell.

Today, the online auction and shopping website released version 2.0 of eBay for iPad. It's a big leap from the previous version, 1.7.1, in that it's a complete design overhaul. In addition, the new version introduces a number of new features, most of which were suggested by users.

The main attraction in the new and improved eBay for iPad may be the app's Retina-optimized graphics, but it may also be the app's snazzy home screen. The home screen gathers your Buying, Watching, and Selling activities in one easily accessible place, along with handy links to deals and specific categories. If you want to customize it, you can do so by putting it in "wiggle" mode, in which you can delete unwanted items and add desired ones.

The new eBay for iPad lets you customize your home screen.

Also an improvement brought by the redesign is the ability to browse search results in any of three different view types. A listing revision feature and a back button have also been added.

Version 2.0 of eBay for iPad is available now in the App Store for free. With its impressive new design and features, it's quite a big deal.
