eBay for Android gets a visual redesign, in-app notifications, improved search results, and more

If you’re an eBay enthusiast, either for buying or selling, there’s an updated Android app for you to download from the Google Play store.

Version 2.7 brings a “fresh new look” that seems to have taken at least a few visual cues from Google’s Material Design playbook. The new aesthetic is clean and flat, with a predominantly white color scheme and minimal shadows. The home screen offers a search bar and a shortcut to your basket, as well as an easy way to review followed sellers, searches and a personalized feed of items.

eBay has made images larger and revamped how it displays search results, which should make finding the perfect item just that little bit faster. In-app notifications have been introduced and it’s also possible to donate to your preferred charity when putting items up for sale. Finally, the app now lets you check a seller’s location when reviewing a “Best Offer” and also send payment reminders.
