eBay Fashion App For The iPhone Further Entices Spending
The eBay Fashion App is quite streamlined and easy to use. You can easily search through eBay's auctions via special selection tools oriented to finding clothes and related matter. The menus and search tools are dead simple, and the standard eBay auction layout has been thoughtfully adapted to the iPhone screen. This means you can easily switch between viewing the item images, description, and auction information with out lots of scrolling.
Aside from enjoyable item browsing as well as details searches, the eBay Fashion App has some other interesting features. One is called the "Vault." Regular users of the app can learn about upcoming sales on select new items from certain brands. In the image above, there is an example of an upcoming Brooks Brothers sale, that is due to go live on a specific date. This is like an eBay version of a invitee only discount sale. During the sale period, you can view the items, and new sales are scheduled all the time.
The Closet feature is fun as well. You can use a small heart icon to save items and keep them in your closet. When viewing the closet, you can look through your saved items, and virtually put them together like you are choosing outfits to see how they go together. The system isn't terrible sophisticated, but is a fun tool for when you want to see how a top goes with a bottom, etc...
Because eBay wants you to use the app to buy items and bid on auction, the app is of course free. If you are keen on searching for new and old clothes, and other fashion items (really anything from shoes, to handbags, and watches), the app is ideal. Plus, while it is designed for the Fashion crowed, the app of course doesn't limit your searches to eBay's fashion items. I am pretty sure you can search anything on eBay with the app. Check out the eBay Fashion app here via iTunes.
