Simplest way to browse items in ebay

Hello, I'm writing a simple app which show items from ebay in a list. Each Item should have photo, price and some buyng info.

I'm now a little confused in the choiche of the API and I'm stucked. For what I have understood:

- Browse API is the modern way but requires approval and Oauth token.

- Finding API is the old way: don't require approval and don't require auhentication.

I will use so Finding API, right?

Regards, Francesco

Yes, you are correct that Browse API is the more modern way of achieving what you want, and the way that eBay would prefer you use. Finding API is old, but it's less complicated to use than Browse API.

Browse API requires some extra steps for getting a token. But you may not need approval (once you have a Developer account) for small amounts of daily API calls.
