Official PayPal app for Windows Phone updated


eBay has released an update for its PayPal app, which is available for both Windows Phone 7.x and 8. Unfortunately, as per usual, there's no changelog available for consumers to view what's new in the latest release. At least the app is still present on the store and can be downloaded by all.

The app went missing for Windows Phone 8 users at the start of the month, but later returned with little explanation as to why it was pulled in the first place - we noted that it could well have been due to the crashes that consumers were experiencing. We can only assume this latest update is to address more bugs and / or improve stability.

You can download PayPal from the Windows Phone Store for free. Noticed anything new in the latest release? Be sure to let us know in the comments. Thanks, Mike, for the tip!

Downloaded it earlier, but haven't noticed any differences yet.

Does it support their card reader?

ryan.kruger says:

I would like to know this as well... Had it not before?

JRube says:

My wife would love to use her Lumia 900 to take credit card payments.  Hopefully soon.  Right now she's using the Square reader on her IPOD (via an unreliable wifi where she works) because there's nothing we've found for our phones.

We wish. It would be the only game in town if it did, and a major victory. My Wife wants to keep her WP as well (Titan 2) and would be all over taking payments on their system. May just send an email to them to see if that is something they are interested in.

Site version still downloading OLD version. Once you install , check the version date. IT's NOT (v. 12/29/2012) like it should be

Pricop says:

What are you saying there? I got 1.2.47...

Winnut says:

I uninstall the earlier version because I was unable to login with web or passcode. Suppport Team said its a Bug and it would be fixed with the next update. I'm using Nokia 900 windows 7.5. Please let me know it anyone else is having the same issue.
