Internet auction giant eBay has just released it app for iPad version 2.0, presently available at the Apple iTunes store, allowing users to better sell, search, bid, buy, browse and pay in an interface built around the tablet.
Below is a clip of eBay VP of Mobile Steve Yankovich showing off the new app:
