We have given an extensive review to the official eBay app for Windows 8 users a while ago, so go ahead to read more about one of the best Windows 8 shopping apps. It has recently received an important update which takes care of some rather annoying bugs.
eBay is one of the first big apps that have been released in the Windows Store for Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 users and it has been downloaded by thousands of users across the world. The app looks absolutely stunning especially on Windows 8 tablets with good displays, but it’s just as good on desktop Windows 8.1 devices, such as my laptop. You can have a look at the video from below where I’ve included a fresh overview of the updated eBay app for Windows 8. Of course, the app can be downloaded absolutely for free and has a size slightly bigger than 2 megabytes.
Windows 8 eBay app updated with bug squashes
The eBay app for Windows 8.1™ allows you to tap into the world’s largest online marketplace anywhere you are. Built upon simple, intuitive design, it will help you quickly navigate to whatever you want to do on eBay. Never miss a deal with the eBay app for Windows 8.1™ with alerts when you are outbid or auctions are ending. You can customize even more alerts so you stay on top of your shopping. Pinning ‘Live Tiles’ to the homepage provides updated information about your activity.
According to the official changelog of the app, the latest version comes with “critical bug fixes”, so you need to go ahead and download the latest version, if you’re not running it already. eBay doesn’t detail what exactly the bug squashes consist in, but I’ve had a thorough look at the negative reviews and most of them seemed to be pointing fingers at the Windows 8 version being slower than the Android counterpart; login difficulties and absence of the items that have been marked as “watching” or just acquired. I’ve tested the app and can confirm that all these problems have been taken care of.
When you will first open the app, you will be require to pick the country where you’re located. You can use the app without logging in, but obviously, you won’t be able to buy or sell things. You can search, bid, and purchase items, list them auction or sell and leave feedback. By enabling the Live Tile of whatever size you want, because it’s obviously fully compatible with Windows 8.1, you can also receive notifications about your buying and selling activities. If you bought something, you can also track your package.
