The official iPhone and iPad eBay apps have just been updated with some nice improvements sure to make both buyers and sellers happy.

First up, the eBay app has moved to version 3.0. The new addition is marked by a revamped look and feel that is a much welcomed improvement from previous versions.

Both users in the United States and United Kingdom can now also take advantage of the new eBay shopping cart to checkout multiple items at the same time.

And to help better view items for sale, iOS 6 users can tap the grid icon at the top of the search results to see larger photos.

Finally, along with selling support for Spain, the app will allow users in certain U.S. states to scan their driver’s license to make registering for eBay even easier.
