eBay on iPad safari question - 02/26/13 11:55 PM

I prefer to search and conduct business from eBay from safari not from the eBay ap.

They have recently changed how it works in searching and refining .

Say I'm looking for a pair of mens pants waist size 48 .

I go to Mens Clothing
Then Pants
This brings up all the items in that category.

I then want to refine search by selecting my size, inseam, material, color etc

They show these along the left side. I click on "see all"

Now here's where my problem lies.

Up pops a window withe the choices

I pick size bottoms

In the pop up window it shows the choices of sizes but my size "48" is beyond the window.

I can't get it to slide down to show the rest of the choices. I've tried one finger, two finger, three and four finger swipes to no avail. What it does is move the bottom window not the top window.

Am I stupid or what (okay don't answer that)

.

Are you using your iMac? If so do {cmd -} several times and shrink the type size/page. then try the pop up and see if you can get to the bottom or your size.

Right, I'm missing something to the other on how to get itto work.

I've been on their ap but its not very intuitive for me. Can't seem to do everything I want there either. I suspect I may just have to get off my arse and walk the four feet to my Mac

I really don't like browsing with the iPhone app. Do a search on it then do the same on the computer, they are different. It seems you have more content on the computer. I use it to check shipping and bids once I've found something, but my main searching is done on the computer.

As far as your problem it's probably just a bug. Deleting the app and reinstalling it may work.

It's not the eBay Ap. . I don't find it very useful doing my business on eBay,

My problem is withe ebay website running on Safari on my iPad with which I'm having the problem.

You might try installing the Chrome browser - I've found that when things don't display properly in Safari, the Chrome app is more flexible (it also makes it much easier to get image urls in google, which the iOS Safari makes pretty difficult).

I tried it on my iPhone and it's okay, must be an iPad glitch. Did you try powering down the iPad and back up?
